Goths, I love 'em! I even used to be one for a bit (well, I was a Didi-Goth for at least 6 months). But there's one thing that troubles me about our cheery friends: what to do they do in summer? All that makeup, long black leather and rubber must get very sticky. I think we should show our respect for these poor unfortunates, struggling to stand out from the vanilla crowd despite blazing temperatures and sunshine that puts the rest of us in shorts and vest tops. Join me in celebrating the majesty of the Goth, who, eschewing any practicality whatever, still has the commitment to don a full length leather trenchcoat, stupid New Rock boots, and half a Superdrug counter of makeup. All hail the Hot Goth!

She also should get marks for being in Whitby, the home of the Dracula "museum".

That's where Goths go on holiday. But how do they eat the fish and chips without making a mess of their deathly pallor?

@Anonymous - depends on how bad your poetry is I would imagine.

Well basically, we put the food in our mouths rather than rubbing it all over our faces. What do *you* do? :P lol
