This just explains so much about my life


I think I burned out writing so many reviews in such a short time…so here’s today’s tidbit, totally unrelated to books.

Crazy Aunt Purl’s response to Esquire’s article The State of the American Man. I’m not convince that this is limited to American men…

My only response to CAP is that she’s hit the nail on the head, and described the last ten years of my life.

Women aren’t perfect either (I know I’m not) but there seems to be a lack of respect going both directions. What ever happened to good, old-fashioned dating?

    I read this and wished I wrote it!!! So I went to print it to wave at random BOYS on the street and it ate up 56 pages (I forgot to cut and paste just the actual post so I got all the comments too.) One comment was that women over 30 are not considered by men for dating…guess I’m done then.

    Oh yeah. Being a crazy old cat lady is looking more appealing all the time!

    No kidding, especially since, as Heather points out, wome over 30 aren’t considered by men for dating. I have no hope! I just wish Ticia would tolerate other cats, since I only am owned by her. LOL…
