Writer, photographer, "rapper" and general technophobe takes on the internet in what could be a very, very messy fight. But it's alright: she's harder than she looks, and she's wearing every single ring she could get her hands on.

Keeping it in the family Part Three

"If you want to write about something other than yourself," my sister said a few minutes ago, "write about me. My iPod is behaving like my boyfriend: it either fails to work at all, or it's too loud, or it teases me by pretending it's working and then turning off all of a sudden. Do you think it's because I dropped it down the toilet?"
"Your boyfriend?"
"No, but do you think that would help if I tried dropping him in there too?"
"Is he going to fit?"
"He will if I chop him into tiny pieces first."
"You're going to need to get one of those toilet un-blockers, because I reckon he's not water soluble."
"Good idea. I'll pick one up from Sainsburys on my way back from Uni. Now, bugger off and go and write something about me. I want a bit of this fame too, you know. Mum and dad and the cat have got some, so give me some love too."

Done, Tara. Done.
