welcome to the webpage for me, the missing Olsen triplet


my dream is to be a balaclava model or radio actress


i give advice about how to navigate life’s journey with dignity, as you can see here

and i have this theory that death is a pigeon, so go here for why


i’m quite intense, my thoughts often gravitate towards weird things like “if a gimp falls in a forest and no one sees, is it still called forest gimp?”


once i was in the shower and i looked down and saw 10 shiny beetles silently crouching at my feet in an eerily symmetrical formation, i let out a bloodcurdling scream and stamped on them until i was sure they were dead, then i remembered i’d gotten a little bit drunk the night before, and painted my toenails black


i’ve been on antidepressants ever since i told my best friend about my problems and he said “poor cow, try living with cancer babes” and i said “what, i can’t say anything because i haven’t got cancer?” and he said “get a grip and some perspective, it’s pathetic, look at the world around you rather than at just yourself” and when i told my dad later that day he said “well, depression is merely reluctance to accept that you aren’t the most special person in the room” so now i live with auntie pippa in hemel hempstead but i’ve caught her sniffing my underwear on multiple occasions


this is a quote about me from the staffordshire newsletter in 2014: “shocking the audience into submission was ruth less... looking a bit like the black-eyed girl of cannock chase, *(don’t know what that bit means)* you couldn’t guess what she was going to do, giving her acts an unpredictable charm” 

and from the loose lips website in 2015: “then came what was the most interesting and innovative act of the night - ruth less - otherwise known as mannish from frisky & mannish. *(don’t know what that bit means)* ruth less’s set is a mixture of performance art and dance. there are no words to describe what she does on stage without spoiling the performance for future audiences, but what i will say is that it is absolutely brilliant”


my whole life up to this point has basically been one big search for someone who’ll love me without my makeup on

i thought i might have found him this year but it didn’t work out, see below for the exchange in its entirety (copied from facebook) -
