|Meet A Lady|
Miss Manners is always delightful, though. And I'm considering adding a new advice column to my pile o' blogs: the Hairpin's Ask A Lady. Partly because it's funny, and partly because the advice often seems ... kinda good, actually?
Some of my favorite quotes:
Oh, and people who call themselves rational human beings. You're a confused, hairless gibbon just like all of us, get over it.
My basic breakdown is: Come to me with a problem one time, you get hugs. Come to me a second time with a totally identical problem, you get strategy. Come a third time, and you are in Time Out.
All different girls prefer all different things. I am A Lady, I am not All the Ladies.
This one rang my alarm bells at first ...
Ugh, I hate "the patriarchy" and equivalently fussy terms (do not EVEN come at me with your "kyriarchy") ... let's call it the jerkcircus from now on, OK, I had everyone in the room vote, it's jerkcircus now.
But I have been won over by "jerkcircus." That there is a good word. Thanks, A Lady.
