Winning Without Dignity or Grace is Not Winning

TRS- you told me to post more than every three weeks. I'm caving in to peer pressure.
E-nice talking, but your hair is distracting. that comes from a place of caring.
LE7-stay with us anytime. you're a pleasant guest
Sarahbonne-can we pay rent? Can I smoke hookah in the house? If I mainline crystal meth can we still live together?

The actual post:
Winning without dignity or grace is not winning. I know I've heard this in a movie, or read it, but its been on my mind all day. Really, I won't post anything unless its been on my mind all day. That means you know something about me, which is that I think too much. So, back to winning. I think this phrase..winning without dignity or grace is not winning...is aimed at women. It is important that a woman maintain a sense of grace, and not turn into an insensitive, uncaring, self- centered witch during the process of getting their conquest.
Women suck. The conquest could be as minor as winning an argument or as major as winning a husband. But you can expect all the same tricks. Flaky, bitchy, mouthy, cliquey, judgmental. You pray you left middle school, but then it pops up, when you're 19, 23...when you thought you were way past this. Men have egos and competition, but their fight is not nearly so vindictive.

I will take sarahbonne's advice and fall in love with art, so it can never leave me, talk behind my back, trade friends and pretend I never existed. To this friend who finally got her conquest: Congratulations. Mazel tov. You have Disappointed more than I could ever imagine. I thought you were better than that. It was my mistake.

  2. I'm also dissapointed but then again...whatever, I'm sorry it turned out like that.
    Hooka is fine. You don't have any crystal meth but sugar is pretty good.
    Re. art, I won't be abandoned but my love won't ever be returned. Shame.

  3. Is my hair too long? I'm planning on getting a haricut in the near future, but I was thinking of pushing it off another week or two.

  6. e- yeah, its kind of hard to have a conversation with you when all I want to do is attack your head with a buzzer

  8. Sarabonne: And I thought only Mottel used that word. Personally, I don't like it. Is there something Jewish about having long hair? Then why Jewify the name? Do Jews with hoodies wear "Jewdies"?

    Mims: you think the haircut's gotta be NOW?

    and your post itself, as well. besides having sympathy for the situation in which you find yourself, its written damn good.

  10. e-"I'm so weird. I look funny and want to grow a Jewfro"
    You left that comment on the "Girls are Evil" post, I just realized it may have been Mottel.

    I got the word from my mom, my brother had long hair for awhile.

  11. God! Mottel's evil trick actually worked! And I though nobody fell for it.

  12. I didn't really think about it at the time.

  13. sheesh. It gets worse. I have a gmail filter, that when I leave a comment on a blog, gmail marks it as read. So I didn't even know about this until much later.

  14. And he's not even around for you to beat him up, how convenient.

    ReplyDelete

  16. cmbc-risks are good. and its a weird word anyway...just one i happen to have a love affair with
    e-yes, and you can go to my style guru, Diaz. he gave me my super short haircut. which was shorter than your hair now.
    sarahbonne-you're suggesting e beat up mottel. how very mafia of you.

  17. E - How do you set up such a g-mail filter?

    Mims - Thanks! You guys are great hosts! In about a year you should come for Shabbos.

  18. Mims: I don't need your style guru. There's this nice Mexican barber shop in Harlem that gave me my last haircut. I think they're good enough.

    Whenever you leave a comment, it comes from "le7 noreply-comment at blogger.com" (with angle brackets before and after the email address). Just tell gmail to mark all those messages as read.

  19. so all of my comments are originally sent to my blog e-mail and then forwarded to my regular g-mail, do I need to set up the filter there?

  20. Dr. Laura announced once that girls come in all ages. She made me laugh.

    Prof. Perser announced once that boys get out their anger through violent means. If that means choosing between Dr. Laura's innate bitchiness or Mike Tyson's bizzar-o violence, I choose....

  21. It seems to me that it would make more sense to set up this filter in your email address, not freeelisheva.

    Just something I had on my blog some months ago and was brought to mind when reading some of your lines here.
