More blog excerpts from my ex-co-op roomie, an early twenty-something UT undergrad coed.

What makes it funny is I know her, and she is definately hittable, as you all put it. Smart too.


Oct 29, 2004
I have been in a bizarrely good mood as of late. I have absolutely no reason whatsoever to have any kind of optimistic outlook. I can't pay my tuition, all the semi-attractive men I know are Players to the Nth degree, I don't have a firm idea of exactly what I'll be doing come graduation time and when you get right down to it, I don't know if I'll be graduating at all. My future is muddy and confusing, my circle of friends keeps getting smaller, my grades are pathetic, my academic life is going down the tubes, I believe I lost whatever job I had left at the movie theater, I haven't had a real boyfriend in three years, I never seem to make enough money, and I missed an opportunity to work at the fair today because I couldn't get the right number from my boss.

And in spite of all this, I've felt really, really good about life in general. I've been cracking jokes in class, talking with actors I've never cared to before, sharing secret smiles in seminar with the boy who looks like he just walked out of a Diego Rivera mural. In short, I'm feeling like Camus and Hemingway probably did in the cafés of occupied Paris, like one of those musicians on the Titanic as it sank.

Their world was going to hell around them, but the music went on.

GOD DAMNIT I CAN'T SOLVE YOUR 30 YEAR CRISES.

I am SO SICK of guys telling me I'm beautiful and asking for my number out one side of their mouths and then telling me they're "emotionally unavailable" and "kinda weirded out they're 10 years older" than me from the other. Then hooking up with someone else all the while saying they think I'm "a cool girl" and they "would really like to hang out" anyway.

THIS HAS HAPPENED MORE THAN ONCE.

What's a girl to do? What's a girl to do when the only guys who don't take a close look and run away screeching are consistently older and consistently going through whatever crazy bullshit "emotional thing" they do when they hit 30, break up with their longtime girlfriends/fiancées, examine their lives and find they don't fit the mold society has laid out for them? What, then?

I was having such a good day.
Now I'm listening to This is Hardcore.
Oy.

Oct 26, 2004
That's it.
I'm convinced.

Earlier today, I had this laid on me: Yeah so I've been seeing this other girl and things were getting kinda intense but I'd wanted to ask you out and so I did but she's like thirty so you know it seems better for me to do this.

FUCK THIS. He was the only person I had any semi-realistic leanings toward and now I'm left with no one nothing and honestly I'm better off for it.

So what am I convinced of?

I am roquefort in a world of men who crave mild cheddar.

What I miss, what I cling to.

Those calm blue-grey pools, remembering them fuller, more than possible. Widely spaced, brimming with deft intelligence, with views of the Mediterranean, cold Northern winters and words recovered from the dust of generations.

The lips generous, pink and perfect, through which one glimpsed small and even teeth, classically trained tongue, the worlds men walked in at the brink of Western memory.

His body, square and sturdy and accustomed to leaning into the wind, into crumbling academic pages. Hands the embodiment of stillness attached to the arms of a prizefighter, all under finely tuned control of a master violinist.

I see bits of him in other people. The shape of an eye, the cut of a tricep under a soft grey shirt, the turn of a lip. I look harder. I hope.

But the lips do not reveal ancient footprints, nor the triceps a still hand. The eyes never hold the bright, incise inquiry, the insatiable curiosity, the intelligence neither mentioned nor questioned, its presence doubtless.

Why did I meet him so terribly inexperienced? Wet behind the ears, still a virgin and just learning how to fight for myself. How to live by my wit, pay my rent, all of it.

What I wouldn't do for a few minutes. A few unhurried minutes to reminisce.
To test the myth.

The dog's owner came by two hours later. Nice woman. Would have liked to talk but was discussing house sitting with a friend and I've never been much good at juggling phone and real conversations.

Went to the Vanity Theatre yesterday for an hour or so, did a little work. Was called back the very same day by none other than the boy who passed my number along, asking if I was free to work this Friday. Why yes, yes I believe I am. I hope this is the beginning of a beautiful relationship. Or at least a better one than what I've got working at the little theatre right now.

The surly redneck character actor hasn't called. Surprised? Not I. For two whole days I thought maybe... maybe this is something to really look forward to. Maybe this one'll fly. Ha! Good one.

Just returned from Alfie, the Michael Caine version. Not the kind of movie a girl should watch when she feels stood up.

And for my next trick, I will listen to Pulp.

A dog followed me home.

No, not that kind of dog, but thanks for asking.

A dog. Four legs, paws, big teeth, long fur, you know... woof. Followed me home. It's laying in my living room panting slobber on my floor. I called the number on its collar about half an hour ago, no response yet. I don't need a dog. Especially a dog that seems to have eye problems. I hope, really hope, that this Louisa person calls me back about her dog because as cute as it is, a dog is the last thing I need.

That's not true. There are worse things than an unwanted pooch. Like an unfinished project looming over my head.

I have an interview-of-sorts tomorrow morning at the One World Theater. Should be innaresting. My dear acquaintence Brian gave them my number. He's good people, I must say.

Cross your fingers for me, folks. Between the dog, the job, and the Otis, I'm going to need all the help I can get.

Edit 10/21:
Well, two out of three ain't bad.

She's got a nice bod, I can attest to that.

Now how long would you put up with that for the bod.

She sounds pretty neurotic... but then I think all women are. I bet if every woman had some way to vent like that blog, most would, and it wouldn't make much sense to us guys.

I'll volunteer to go hit it and post pics, since I'm in the Austin area...

Chicks who think they are intellecutally superior to most men piss me off. Nine times out of ten they're self-deluded ...

Women looking for the "perfect man" piss me off too ... Stop being so pretentious and settle ...

How is a high school grad "overeducated" ?



So are you stalking her, or just reading her blogs obsessively and sharing them with anonymous strangers on the internet and asking their opinions about your non-existent relationship with her?
Link Posted: 10/30/2004 6:19:23 AM EST
Cause 'super model' means voluptuous but is also is synonomous with 'super dumb'
Ya see I'd be a good listener so she'd treat me like a sister and soon I'd become
That trusted friend that cares that rubs her back and braids her hair
No it wouldn't be a week before I'm in her underwear

I think he really means pretentious. Which this chick is, definitively.

Reading her blog entries, I experienced both a tingling of the pimp-hand, and an urge to vomit.

CC, this one is nuts. Known a few just like her.

Have her read Dr. Laura's book, "The Care and Feeding of Husbands", just so she can't say she didn't get a good line on things.
