So I sort of feel like I should lighten the mood a bit after last nights explosion of frustration and angst. Then there was Carlie's comment. If you haven't read it yet, head on back over to What the Fuck Happened to Tim McGraw and take a look. The only thing I can say is I feel legit with a hater like her on board.
Where to begin? Well it's interesting and sort of pathetic to note that around 4:45 p.m. I realized I hadn't eaten since before 9 a.m. That's right, I forgot to eat! I have always blasted those women who profess having forgotten to eat but today I joined their esteemed flat tummied ranks!! Not that my stomach is flat. I think it might take a few more times of this kind of forgetfulness to really make any difference.
The chances of this happening are slim.
So anyway, I was hungry so ate some leftover pasta for supper and decided that I deserved an almond Sweet 'n' Salty granola bar for dessert. You know, in light of my near having starved today. It was good. Except, I'm now discovering, not actually a good choice. My mouth and throat are itchy. So some slight food sensitivity kicking in there. Lame.
Other than that, I've decided I'm going to go the library and check out the Feminine Mystique. I think I read it once before, in University but I'm now actually wondering if I can pick up where Ms. Friedan left off. Here we are some 40 years later and maybe it's time to re-evaluate. Or wake up the sleeping masses anyway.
Despite Carlie's unhappiness and judgement of my previous post, I stand by my assertion that the Women's Movement is dead. Or at the very least, very sound asleep. I should like to re-awaken it.
I should also like to thank Carlie for waking me up to the miscalculations and misunderstandings of my life. Children require self-sacrifice? Why didn't someone tell me? Oh and in case any one's wondering Carlie also waxes because she prefers it to "being hairy". Good to know. Finally, I'd like to thank Carlie for using her name. The last asshole who got on my case for using the word "mothertruckers" too much wouldn't even step up to that plate, so if nothing else, Carlie means what she says and has a bigger set than that motherfucker, Anonymous.
So cheers to me and my new pal Carlie and our respectively waxed bits.
