- I am 35.
- I live in London.
- I love making people smile.
- I often listen to action movie soundtracks on my way to work and pretend I’m being chased.
- I have been writing a novel for approximately seven billion years. I aim to finish it by the year 8951.
- I hate cats.
See above, but add wine, a few egg sandwiches, and an acute inability to buy the right-sized bin bags.
I am enormously grateful to everyone who takes the time to read and comment on my blog. You’re all brilliant.

I remember a teacher once telling me that I should try to be less wordy. I thought, “Words are fun; why use less?” Clearly I missed the point entirely.
Precisely. I couldn’t agree more. Words are enormous fun!
I see what you did there…It may have gone unappreciated for 8 long years, but I just laughed rather hard.
Hi Becky, how’s the course going at Kingston? I love that town, would love to up sticks and move there to be honest. Well done on publishing your short stories. That’s on my to do list after Gunshot Glitter’s out. I plan to do it with Bookbaby : ) Good luck with the opus, you’ll be stoked when you write ‘The End’. x
Hi…I wanted to let you know I like your blog and have nominated you for the Versatile Blogger award. No worries if you don’t like participating in awards. Thank you!
You have just received the So Sweet Blogger Award for being so AWESOME!
Please check out my blog for details, post the award on your sidebar and spread the love to some of your favorite bloggers!
THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am almost insensible with gratitude about this, and I will definitely be posting some awards once I’ve finished being so stupidly busy. Thank you so much, this is a true honour 🙂
My pleasure 🙂
What a wonderful intro my friend, I was going to
say Rebecca there but as you haven’t been naughty
I figured that it would be incredibly rude of me 😦
Just kidding… I will have to take the tour later as I
am just about to give the Zombies a ticking off for
eating all the pancakes and… Well as you can see
I am totally crackers… However if you would like a
glimpse of my Space I will try to send you an invite,
you never know it could be the best Space that you
have ever been invited to? 🙂 Have a great start to
your Wednesday Becky 🙂
Thank you! And no, please don’t call me Rebecca, I’ll get scared….
I will check out your space! 🙂
You are welcome to call
by anytime that you wish 🙂
It is Private though, so if
you cannot gain entrance
just knock and I will open
the gates 🙂
Happy Valentine’s Day…

Wow, thank you! Really appreciate it 🙂
hi becky how can i get in touch? laura x
Email me! email@example.com
I’m still learning how the whole “pingback” thing works, so I thought I’d stop off here too and tell you that I’ve nominated you for a bunch of awards today. I linked back to your blog in my post – so look out for it 🙂
You have a great blog. Would you be interested in doing a brief, email interview on my site, dentaleggs.com? It’s about dentistry… are you laughing?
Hi! I’m so sorry, I’ve only just seen this comment! I’d love to do an email interview on your site! I’ve just checked it out, it’s genius! Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Sorry again for the huge delay!
Hi Becky, I’ve said things about you in a recent post of mine.
You’re a total legend, thank you so much! 🙂
It’s my pleasure. It’s like saying thanks to the gods of humour in my little world.
Dropping by to say thank you for visiting my blog and I was happy I did because I am so in love your stickman! I also have stick figures in my blog so it’s nice to meet a fellow “artist” 😀 Looking forward to reading more of your posts! Ah dad was right, you are hilarious. 🙂
Your stick men are awesome! Although I’d better not introduce my Stickman to your Sticklady because he can get a little amorous …
Thank you for dropping by! 🙂
Hahaha okay then! 🙂
Holy crap. I’m so floored you visited my site let alone tagging along. Thank you! Honestly. Thank you.
No worries, your site is genius!
Hey, Good to see you…Your blog is so unique and most importantly Humorous !
I’m 3 weeks to this blogging thing now…Glad I came across you.
Looking forward to your more work 🙂
Thank you so much, I really appreciate it!
I sent out a bit of love for Becky Says Things on BLUNTmoms
This ode to bloggers:
Bloody heck, writing the next Britcom?? That’s the nicest thing anyone’s EVER said! Why AREN’T I writing the next great Britcom?????
Thank you so much for the Becky Says Things love, I’m massively chuffed 🙂
It would be a kindness if you would leave a comment on Blunt Moms taking a bow. Because your writing is fab. Carry on old girl.
Done! I tried to leave one the other day but my computer gave me that horrifyingly irritating message ‘Your connection timed out’, and it made me so irked I stormed off in a huff. Anger management here I come…
Thank you again xx
I’m sorry but I nominated you for a Liebster award. Couldn’t help myself.
Ahhh bless you, thank you so much! x
It pays to write late at night. I just came across your blog. I think I have a crush on Stickman. He’s rather adorable when he’s smoking. 🙂 You made me laugh out loud over and over again.
I don’t want to pour water on any budding romance, but I’d advise that you stay away from Stickman. He’s a complete nightmare. He’s dangerously unhinged. But, it’s your life.
Glad you enjoy my silly said things 🙂
Ha ha! Thanks for the heads up!
I gave you an award! How nice am I?!! 🙂
Nicer than literally anyone I can thnk of right now, including Father Christmas – which means you’re amazingly nice! Thank you so much:)
I’ve nominated you! http://confessionsofaphonesexoperator.wordpress.com/2013/11/28/ive-been-nominated/
Well that is unbelievably amazing of you, thank you! 🙂
Hello, bonjour, I am french and foun your blog funny !
très anglais, j’aime beaucoup votre humour.
thank you; see you soon may be ?
(That’s the extent of my French I’m afraid…!)
A breath of fresh air on a Monday morning! Thanks for making me laugh!!!
Well thank YOU for a lovely comment!
I’m resisting the urge to reblog every single thing you write (after wiping the tears of laughter from my cheeks) you’re my idol 🙂
Tell Stickman that bowties are cool instead 🙂
Ooooooh Stickman in a bowtie!!! He’d look so SMART! 😉
Your blog made my day! I nominated you for The Sunshine Award. Here is the URL to my post “Spreading Sunshine.” http://careymclaughlin.wordpress.com/2014/02/27/spreading-sunshine/
I look forward to reading/listening more of Becky Says Things.
Wow, thank you so much!
Hi Becky, This is so clever. When I first started my blog and did a few doodles, I gave the credits to Mr. Sharpie, Mr. Brite-Liner, and Mz. Bic. I may resurrect a doodle now and again since Stickman inspires. Love the across the pond language bounce. I spent time in Great Britain. I am from the Deep South–not too Yank sounding. I would toss off a little Scarlett O’Hara (thank you, Vivian Leigh), and that seemed to solve some confusion. I look forward to reading more. –Catherine (http://randomstoryteller.com)
Ohhhhhhhh God your comment has made me SO happy, because you managed to do an across the pond language bounce!! The phrase ‘toss off’ in England means….um… you know that thing men do when they’re by themselves and may be a little frustrated or want to look at some pictures of pretty girls and they … well, you know…. that’s what ‘toss off’ means in England 🙂 🙂
On that note, thank you very much for your lovely comment, and I am LITERALLY THRILLED to be in conversation with someone from the Deep South because I have ALWAYS wanted to go there and ALWAYS wanted to be Scarlett O’Hara and ALWAYS wanted to get away with saying ‘fiddly-dee’ at least eight times a day.
Thank you for reading!
Becky and Stickman, I’ve decided to follow you.
Delightful! Thank you for deciding to listen to the things that I say. Welcome aboard, excellent new person 🙂
I have nominated you for the Sunshine Award! http://avictimsjournal.wordpress.com/2014/03/20/sunshine-award/
Yeahhh! Thank you! 🙂
You are welcome and I hope Stickman will have something to say in the matter?! 😉
Stickman DOES drive a big ass truck, but the swine never gives me a ride. It is a bit small, mind you.
lol Looking forward to read more from you and Stickman!
Damn, bloddy website has gone viral around the world. Well done Becky, proud of you but not the stick man.
‘A random teacher’…. this is ominous… were you one of my teachers by any chance?!
Thanks for the comment!
I have nominated you for the Sunshine Award.
I like Stickman – is he a cool alter ego or purely your cool sidekick – the stick who keeps you on task?
A cool sidekick I think. I hope he’s not my alter ego because he can get a bit mentally unstable sometimes… 🙂
Ooo, I love unstable sidekicks!
Becky….where did you go??? Need more Stickman posts!
I KNOW!!!! I’m a terrible person, been so busy… am working on one now!
(Thank you for caring… 😉 )
Oh, am JUST SO GLAD you haven’t disappeared! It’s fine to wait, but just didn’t want to wait in vain! Look forward to more of your good humour! Thanks for the follow too!
OK, Becky. Don’t send Stickman to assassinate me but I have just mentioned you in a blog tour, which is sort of different to an award, but sort of the same. Check it out. And please don’t let the torch die. No pressure…
AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH I LET THE TORCH DIE!!!! I HAVE BEEN ON HOLIDAY AND ONLY JUST LOGGED BACK ON!!! I am so sorry….. 😦 You said such lovely things and I basically THREW it back in your face from my hotel in Spain. I am deeply apologetic and saddened by my heinous disregard for the torch. I am sorry 😦
You can always blame it on Stickman, as you probably left him I charge. Didn’t take him with you did you?
And remember, it is never too late to light the torch…
You rock like a rock cake rocking out to ‘Rock around the clock’ whilst eating a stick of rock and watching ‘School of Rock’
I am a little bit in love with you.
When will you be saying more things?
I know, I’ve been HIDEOUSLY remiss recently. I’ve been on holiday which has inspired my next bunch of things to say, so hopefully VERY SOON.
Thank you for your lovely comment and your excellent influx of the word ‘rock’ x
I didn’t realise that my comment on your ‘Becky says things about music’ page had uploaded (it just vanished when I typed it out so I assumed some technical error). Embarrassingly not so and I have now professed love on two seperate occasions. Whoops!
Well, you’ve completely disappeared off the radar again……am really missing my Stickman fix! Also miss you on my list of cheerful followers. Counting on your return to the blogosphere soon! You are missed!
I like what you and Stickman do here. That’s why I’ve nominated you for the Very Inspiring Blogger Award. You don’t have to accept, but you can find out more about it here: http://mikkiaaron.wordpress.com/2014/07/19/very-inspiring-blogger-award/
Ciao for now,
Thank you very much indeed, it is much appreciated 🙂
I have nominated you for a Very Inspiring Blogger Award–check out my post to find out about it. It takes a bit of work, so I won’t be stressed if you don’t want to follow along.
Your words and pictures…stick figures, make me laugh.
Wow, thank you! This is very much appreciated 🙂
You are very welcome. I hope by doing this more people discover your work–I know at least one person has found you because of my post–sorry, but I don’t have a lot of followers, so I can’t do so much for you–However, I am sure you will soon have a massive following.
Wow Becky! I absolutely love your blog! I was in stitches – your have such a cool talent! Thanks for making me smile 🙂

Thanks mate! 🙂
Hello Becky! I’ve decided to read and follow 15 interesting and new blogs a day every day for the first month of 2015, and yours is today’s #10! Feel free to come visit me when you can at http://www.thatssojacob.wordpress.com, and follow if you like what you read. Happy new year and happy blogging!
Thank you very much! I’m glad you found me! I shall now hop over and check you out…. (Your blog I mean. Not you personally. That would be a bit forward.)
You met my husband in a pub (sounds dodgier than it was – there was another friend there!) and he bought your book. I read it yesterday from cover to cover and think it is genius.
Hi Lucilla! I did indeed meet your husband in a pub (and yes that does sound dodgier than it was!) – and thank you SO much for your lovely comment, that’s absolutely lovely to hear! 🙂 I’ve just received your order and will post it tomorrow.
I’m so glad you enjoyed it and thank you again for your lovely comment (and for buying another copy!) 🙂
Just checking you got my email about the special signing for my mum Bella! No rush – just need it by 22nd Feb! Hope that’s ok 🙂
Message received and replied to! 🙂
I think I am already in love with you Becky…..
Ah, love this about me!! I just stumbled onto your site from a reblog and excited to dig in, you seem awesome!
Richard Ayoade, David Mitchell, and Becky Mayhew are my three favorite
purveyors of British humor. (But if you want to stay in the top three you’d step it up because Greg Davies is on your ass.)
Hey Becky…I could swear that you had posted something about a traffic jam…I waited to read it because I wanted to savour it, take my time with it (like I usually do) and now it is gone. What happened? Did I dream it? Will it come back?
Hey Anthony! Huge apologies about that, I suffered from some jolly old WordPress technical difficulties. Sigh. Watch this space for (hopefully) a new post coming soon!
Thank you for your lovely comment! 🙂
I hope that post isn’t gone….it looked interesting. Sorry to hear about your posting difficulties.
