Reaction to the Reaction to the Election

To all the people who say that the election of Barack Obama as the 44th president will lead to the end of the United States of America . . . Now you know how I’ve felt for the last eight years!

To all the people who say that this country has turned, is turning, or will turn into something that they don’t even recognize . . . Now you know how I have felt for the last eight years!

To all the people who say that they’re afraid that an Executive and Legislative branch both ruled by the Democrats will ruin their security and their future . . . . Now you know how I have felt for the last eight years!

To all the people that say that Barack Obama isn’t American enough to be president, because he’s not white, not a Christian, or has a funny sounding name. . . .Well you can just Fuck Right Off!

This is my country, too. I am not 100% Caucasian. I am not a Christian. I don’t live in “the heartland.” I am a Real American . . . so all of you who have insinuated or implied that you had to be all of those things to be an American or to represent and serve this country . . . . I want you to kiss my lily-white, mix-raced, agnostic, raised by a Buddhist and a feminist Methodist, female, mutha-fuckin’ ASS!!!!!!

Bitch all you want . . . it’s not going to change the fact that you are now THE MINORITY!

And if you don’t like it . . . well you have four years to try to figure out how you’re going to change it. And don’t even think that your pathetic, delusional Alaskan is the answer. She’s not. She may be an American, but she is not The American. Also, it’s time to re-think this whole strategy of telling the ruralites that they’re the only real Americans, and that those of us that live in the urban areas . . . you know, on the coasts . . . are out of touch and off base, because all you did was PISS OFF a lot of people who are making MOST OF the money for this country. You won’t get very far by biting the hand that feeds you.

I am so freaking happy with the election. This is America the way that i have always seen it, where I feel like it’s something that represents me, and that I can represent, as well. I am damn proud of my country. Damn proud.

So don’t you dare piss on my parade!

Crazy Single Girl Life – Personal Questions Editions

It seems that since I’m single, people (friends, acquaintances, family members, etc.) think that my personal life is fair territory, and I’ve found myself on the receiving end of some very odd questions, statements, advice. Lemme just save us both some time and go over some fine points for you.

  • If I don’t bring it up, you don’t bring it up. If I don’t tell you that I’m seeing someone, going on a date, met somebody, etc., then the topic is off limits. If you have to ask, you’re prying. Period. End of discussion. Don’t get all indignant and pissy with me when I point it out to you, either.
  • If I respond to your prying question with some sort of cagey answer, you should drop it. This is my way of subtly saying that I don’t really have a desire to share. If you don’t pick up on the hint, don’t get all indignant when I go the blunt route and point out that you’re prying.
  • Until such time as I tell you that I’m not single anymore, you can go ahead and assume that I still am. What kind of fucked up question is, “Are you still single?” This will be responded to with either the afore mentioned cagey answer and/or the blunt pointing out of how rude you are and/or sarcasm. Are you still not minding your own damn business?
  • Don’t you dare judge me for behaving like a single person. If, as a result of your prying or because I have actually decided to confide in you on my own, I allude to or flat out state that I may or may not be going on dates with one or more person, don’t get all flushed by the plural. Just ’cause I went out with John on Sunday, and Dick on Tuesday, that does not make me some kind of tramp. And did it ever occur to you that I’m making it all up just to throw you off?
  • What’s up with So-And-So? As far as I’m concerned, the only appropriate answer to this question is: I don’t know. What is up with So-and-So? I’m sure you’ve heard some bit of gossip about me and So-And-So, and I’m also fairly sure that it’s all poppycock. Until you hear it from me directly, you should also assume it’s poppycock. Asking about it is prying. See above.

So, in summation, there’s nothing going on, and even if there is something going on, I’m not talking about it, so you don’t need to know, and at such time that it becomes pertinent for you to know what’s happening with my personal life, I will be sure to fill you in, and until I do that, it’s NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS.

Oh, and the more you pry, the less likely I am to be comfortable sharing with you. Gaining trust takes patience. No patience = no juicy details.

As if I have juicy details.

I totally have juicy details.

Or do I?

Just sayin’.
