My Guy, October 14th 1979

It's another Monday, another magazine scan post. This week we have an issue of My Guy magazine from October 14th, 1979.

My Guy magazine, October 14th 1979

This issue has some weird stories. First up, a dating agency run by a guy who gives out inappropriate matches to girls he fancies himself (he looks better by comparison) but gets his comeuppance, then a girl from a sink estate who attracts an Arab prince who wants to make her his wife. We learn that Boney M were mistaken for a Sultan with his harem in Norway (apparently), and the letter page reaches whole new levels of naivety with:

"I am only 13, but I am in love with a 21-year-old married man and he loves me. We have to keep it a secret so his wife doesn't find out. The problem is I'm frightened he might ask me to have sex. What do I do?

You can read the full issue for yourself in PDF format HERE.

  1. I think I bought this magazine back in the 90s. It had those photo story panels which I enjoyed!

  2. Oh wow, this is old school! I was 7 months old when this published. It's crazy how different the fashion was! x

    1. The 'All the boys love a nice girl' fashion feature is just *so* 70s. I can't imagine many girls today going for shapeless brown floral frocks :)

  3. OMG it isn't until you look at things like this that you realise just how far the world has moved on. Just brilliant. Where did you find it?

    1. I bought a lot of about 20 or so on eBay a while back, so I'm slowly scanning them in before selling them back on. I love how a lot of the scenarios just wouldn't happen today - like waiting at the phone box for a boy to ring, or having to stay in all night by the landline!

  4. I probably pored over every word of this back in the day! I say bring back shapeless brown floral frocks :)

    1. Hehe, Laura Ashley is due a comeback, methinks! I do love the shoes in that item too, they're so cute.

    1. I've got a few mags from the 20s and 30s too and the price is like 2p or something! :)

  6. I feel really old for recognising the cover guy as Gary Tibbs from Roxy Music and Adam & The Ants! :)

Simply Cook Review

I kept seeing ads and deals for Simply Cook everywhere, so as there was a special offer on at OhMyDosh! Rewards (£3 for the box and £3.50 cashback) I figured I had nothing to lose by giving it a try. What Is It? Recipe kits packed into boxes which fit through your letterbox. The usual price is £9.99 for a kit of 4, with each one serving 2-4 people depending on your serving sizes. All you need to do is buy the fresh ingredients required and follow the instructions. Here is Simply Cook's own helpful diagram: Does It Work? For me, as the person just eating it, it was awesome. Everything tasted great - the mushroom penne in particular was so good I went back for seconds - and I liked that the sauces weren't as rich as Anthony would usually make them. For Anthony, who cooked them, they weren't as impressive. He complained that the food was bland and that it was actually quite a lot of faff, as Lidl didn't stock everything we needed which meant another trip ou
