exile in guyville, YEAH!

on a pre-pre-valentines day in the dead of winter … it feels indulgent to play this old and familiar song and look out the snowy window whilst hugging my cat and see what appears to be everyone else in the world frolicking together.

then my moment of moroseness is interuppted by my iTunes, which has shuffled to Get Crunk by Lil’ Jon and the East Side Boyz.

YEAH! GET CRUNK GET CRUNK GET CRUNK!

do i look like a caitlin?

my hair guy, with whom i spend large sums of money every 7 weeks, called me caitlin today. how rude!

then i came home and looked at the shitty furniture i bought from target and pondered — why? why the rickety, self-assembled house of cards night stand? why not something sturdier, long lasting? why do i blow cash on hair and not home?

NO2

sometimes i think i am the only person in the world who doesn’t love U2. i can see the music has merit. and i think bono’s a standup guy using his celebrity for important economic and diplomatic issues. but hell i still cringe every time i see those cheesy glasses and hear that “uno – dos – tres – CATORCE.”

ikea's web site blows!

it’s bothered me for years. the lack of a real ecommerce ikea site.

why? WHY?

here i am, visa in hand, ready to blow a couple of hundred bucks on crappy furniture that has no shot at being around long enough to be of use to my future progeny.

or even me, say … 3 years from now.

but alas, der arbiter of disposable modern scandinavian style doesn’t want my kronas.

or, der arbiter is so arrogant as to believe i have no alternative but to commandeer a vehicle and leave the island in search of cheap retro furnishings in its new jersey or brooklyn locations.

won’t sell & ship to little old me? c’est la vie! le target? oui!

the joys of much too much

“Go for the Big Life — the Great Career, the Perfect Guy, and Everything Else You’ve Ever Wanted (Even If You’re Afraid You Don’t Have What It Takes) by Bonnie Fuller.

i don’t feel compelled to read the book, but i do delight in the idea of it. just this weekend i was at a wedding shower and a friend of my mother’s pulled me aside and told me i was wonderful and my mother is so proud of me, yadda yadda yadda. then she paused and sternly warned me: “but don’t forget to smell the roses.”

it was not the first time i had heard that one. older generations tend to think i am not enjoying my life because i am so focused on my career. they are wrong. i get a great deal of fulfillment and opportunity for self actualization from my career. and i have wonderful relationships. i have a full life with friends and family and diverse delights. i feel blessed that i had the wherewithal to stay independent and work on sorting out my identity before i got married and had kids and tried impose my unrealized dreams, hopes and fantasies onto others. there’s plenty of time to fall in love and, if i am lucky, have a family. i believe you have to let life unfold as it will, because it will. there’s no sacred script for how and when things should be done. we all have to find our own way.

besides, that whole desparate housewives scene just so isn’t me.

and the joke's on who?

found this article after checking out a link from kate’s blog about why men don’t fancy funny women.

“That said, I am with somebody who really, really likes the fact that I have a sense of humour. It depends on the bloke and if he wants an equal, and the sexiness of banter, which is essentially a form of foreplay. I might have toned down my humour with men I fancied when I was younger, but not now.”

amen sister. i am there on not toning it down, whether or not it means lifelong singledom (which i don’t think it does).

a song by weezer, ‘freak me out’ describes the way i think many dudes have related to me and some of my friends.

i am so tired of silly scared boys. enough. where are the real men?
