My Guy Magazine, May 1978

Front Cover of My Guy Magazine, May 1978

It's been a while since I've done one of these posts! Here we have a scan of the 27th May 1978 edition of My Guy magazine. I've compiled the scans into a single PDF document, or you can read the individual pages below.

  1. As I am reading this, I am watching an American game show from 1978 complete with vintage commercials. Ha ha! I remember magazines like this when I was younger. I have to laugh at the "she was so common" comment. Another difference between the US and UK, common isn't really an insult here.

    1. That's an awesome coincidence! I love the photo stories, I wish they still did those in magazines.

      Ooh, really? You definitely don't want to be called common here. xD

  2. Is that Anna Friel in one of the photo stories?! It's amazing the number of people who did those before they became well known. Thank you for the trip down memory lane

    1. Ooh, I don't know - I'm going to have to go back and re-read! :D I love doing that too; it's the best thing about watching old TV shows too. x

  3. I am not familiar with this magazine but I do love my teenage mags! In my country we have access to american magazines and I just cant get enough of them even if I have to skip recess just so I can buy them =) #pocolo

    1. I used to love doing the magazine quizzes during recess at school - not sure they were ever very accurate though! :)

  4. I loooved My Guy and Oh Boy. Oh how I learnt lots from My Guy. Love this Jess #PoCoLO

    1. xD Everything I know came from the teen magazines - though I'm still waiting to meet Prince Charming at the roller disco!

  5. This is fab! I loved the photo stories. Hope Alan and Mary get it sorted :) thanks for linking to #PoCoLo

    1. They should bring back photo stories, they were always so cheesy - but great fun!

British Food

A/N: On a previous blog wrote a whole series of posts on British life, explained for American fiction writers. This week I'm reposting the entry explaining British cuisine... Britain is world renowned for its stodgy, uninspiring cuisine. (Which should explain the deep suspicion Britons have of most foreign cuisine, unless it's been suitably adapted for the British palette.) BBC sitcom Goodness Gracious Me explains it best via the 'going for an English' sketch - a play on the popular British past time of 'going for an Indian (i.e. curry)'. " What's the blandest thing on the menu? " asks one character, later encouraging another, " Just have something a little bland, huh? Waiter, what have you got that is not totally tasteless? " Because, the truth is that traditional British fare is far from a taste sensation for those who haven't been raised on the stuff. Still, read on, and you can judge for yourself...

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
