Sorry I haven’t been blogging today.

I’ve been carrying on a torrid text-message love affair with this guy. Are any of YOU Jill from Miami? Your boyfriend misses you.

About Jill

    I’m confused.

    The ending is heartbreaking, and hilarious. :-p

  5. Chataya says:

    Aw, Jill, how could you just let that one go? He seemed like a real…prize.

  6. suspect class says:

    He is more man than any other! I’m not sure what that means, or how you quantify such a thing. Maybe it depends on what bumper-sticker version of man-ness you ascribe to.

    I know this is going to get my mean bitch card taken away, but I feel kind of sorry for him…

      So I did too, but I am 95% sure he is trolling me. So I trolled back. I think we are equally fucking with each toher.

    Hmmm…I find his claim of manliness is not substantiated by the official record. He is now deemed a catamaran.

  9. suspect class says:

    Maybe he’s part man, part sea-faring-vessel. Which would make him more man than any other catamaran I’ve ever seen.

  10. Miriam says:

    Well played, Jill. I LOLed.

  11. Amelia ze lurker says:

    Boy, he sure got offended at your attempt to avoid being heterosexist, didn’t it? Sounds like a REAL catch.

    Ha! Well played.

    You and Leila of The Leila Texts should collaborate!

    I kinda take issue with the intro there. We ALL attract weirdos, because there are a lot of fucked up men out there who are encouraged by a fucked up society to believe that they’re entitled to harass women. Your intimations of self-blame make me a little squicky because this is something I’ve heard over and over again from women, usually uttered in sad tones: “*I* attract weirdos.”

    I know that you’re probably well-informed enough to get this; I still think it’s not a great meme to perpetuate because so many women aren’t. I guess I can keep my mean bitch card! (No, really it’s something I’m always sad to hear from women because my younger mean bitch self did the same thing.)
