Seen on a Xanga reunion page on the devil Facebook:
Anyone ever hear from transvestite rabbit?? I think that was her name. Brilliant woman.
Do you hear that, people? I am brilliant. Or at least I was brilliant, back in the day. I am fondly remembered as having been brilliant. What the hell happened to me, anyway?
It was good timing, finding out I was brilliant, or used to be, because I read this: A Man Told Me My Body Was “Too Wrinkled” for Him, and even though I’m younger than the woman who wrote it, the implications are clear. In this piece, a man near the same age as the woman in question informs her that he’s been “spoiled by younger women” and just can’t deal with her old-lady body. She responds beautifully, telling him to piss off and insisting that she loves her body. Admirable! Impossible!
I’ve now updated (or downgraded) my dating plan from “maybe next year” to “oh my god NEVER.”
Fortunately, I can fall back on my brilliant blogging and legions of former fans for the validation all humans crave. See you tomorrow. Or maybe later tonight.
