Dowd and out

Saturday, November 5th, 2005

There’s been a lot of words typed up in response to the Dowd woman’s new snark-o-tome, Are Men Necessary? or whatever the hell it’s called. For some of the best so far, read Amy Welborn’s post on it and also the links in her post. But all pontificating besides, the answer to her faux-pitiful question, […]

What the world needs now is another folk singer

Thursday, October 13th, 2005

Why the Hollywood movie industry is going down the tubes, Reason No. 45,687,146: the synopsis of the latest Bowl O’ Clichés film North Country:
When Josey Aimes (Academy Award winner CHARLIZE THERON) returns to her hometown in Northern Minnesota after a failed marriage, she needs a good job. A single mother with two children to support, […]

The Pork Latitudes

Thursday, September 29th, 2005

All this fuss and bother about spendthrift Republicans and the current blog-paign to “cut pork from the national budget” is going to go nowhere because people keep avoiding the elephant in the room. In a move to quit hiding my light under bushels on other peoples’ websites, I’m going to share with you, my readers, […]

Sisterhood

Wednesday, September 14th, 2005

These people are better than me. You can count on it. Also, they know me better than I know myself — I didn’t realize how “bitter and lonely” I was until I read their righteous judgment! I am ready to submit to my multicultural master– ah, mistresse… er — mattresses!
(Follow the yellow brick road.)
Hey man […]

This is your brain on women

Monday, August 15th, 2005

I have had it with my sex. I hereby proclaim myself Female By Accident; it’s just an “F” on my driver’s license and a mistaken chromosome set; otherwise I have nothing to do with the mewling, puling, totally lacking in anything like dignity or character half of humanity known as “women.” Men say you can’t […]

Best post title ever

Monday, August 8th, 2005

Of that report on how women who try to use sex to get ahead in the office actually don’t, Kathy Shaidle says “Call it The Ass Ceiling.” Heh heh…
I can tell you though, having worked in an office environment of one sort or another for over twenty years, I can say that though men […]

Live fast, die young, have a badly-dressed corpse

Thursday, July 21st, 2005

Speaking of the demise of decorum in public life, now I find out that a band of female jocks actually went to meet the president (of the United States. At the White House.) wearing flip-flops.
(Pause to drink water to soothe throat sore from screaming “KILLLLLL!!!!”)
My children. Listen carefully to what I have to say.
THE […]

Oh by the way

Wednesday, July 20th, 2005

I’ve decided to add a new category. It will be exclusively focused on the sex to which I have been relegated by birth: women. It occurs to me that women do a lot of complaining about men-the-beasts, and that’s all well and good, but I think it’s kind of obvious now that there really isn’t […]

Hey don’t lean on me man if you can’t afford the ticket

Wednesday, July 20th, 2005

Everything that is wrong with the country is encapsulated in this comment, that I lifted off Scott Chaffin’s blog:
I would prefer a nominee who, at least on some level, empathically understands the life of a 50′ish, hard-working married woman earning less than the national average with a large blended family and who is currently ensuring […]
