She begins in the middle and ends there, too

A week or so ago, I gave up men. I announced it to Weedy.
"I'm giving up men," I said. "Except for the ones I already like."
"No you're not," she replied. This is what happens when you're friends with someone for over 30 years. They go around thinking they know you and they say whatever they think.
"Yes I am. I'm keeping the Scorpios, though. Well...maybe I'm keeping the men I'm already friends with, as well. And the blog guys."
But that's it. Scorpio the Older and Scorpio the Younger. Maybe one Virgo (if he ever writes again). And okay, I'm still talking to Minor Deity. But I'm giving up on the rest. Absolutely.
"I'm giving up men," I tell K.D. "I told Weedy that today."
"And what did Weedy say?"
"She didn't believe me."
"Well. I'll believe you then. Just to keep the yin-yang balanced."

I'm going to sit around waiting for the end of the patriarchy. And ironing my wimple.

Meanwhile, can someone tell me why men who blog don't seem to have the a**hole quotient of your normal average male? If you can't tell me, then just pat yourselves roundly on the back, crack a beer (or a jar of olives stuffed with feta cheese) and do an entry so that I can keep hope alive.

Browse randomly through blogger, you'll find 'em. Thoughtful writers and computer guys are not the dregs that make themselves heard in real life. They are a skewed sample of mostly good folks.

I'm a Cancerian... I guess I'm out too huh?

I've given up men too, but I'll keep the girls! ;-)

oh and the 'nice' blogger is probably a carefully constructed persona designed to hide all those things they know women don't find appealing in men...

Edvard is probably right about the personas...Mr.X is certainly a bit skewed, but in a nice sort of way!

Mr.X loves you anyway Even is he is a bit warped :)

Oh, and a chocolate biscuit rather than olives, thank you!

LJ The Perfect Woman. Yes, yes. That has a nice ring, thank you,D.
Edvard. You stay.
Mr. X. You stay.
As to personas? The gentlemen I'm done with don't have the wit to develop charming personas - actually, they don't think they need to.
It might be the writing factor, as Zhoen says.
I think writers are, at the least, a little more observant.
PS - D? I'm not dating them. That's the point. If there is one.

Charming? Me? Hell, no. I'm usually cranky. ;)

LJ said...

My idea of charm is...um...unique.

Minor Deity said...

"Unique"... that about sums up the workplace. ;)
