For some unknown reason, I expected to find an excuse from Hottie1 in my inbox this morning. Nope, nothing. DOUCHE.

Last night, I popped out to Au Bon Pain to buy cookies. Because I decided not to go to the gym. And I love cookies. The winner? Hazelnut Dream. Go out and buy yourself an Au Bon Pain Hazelnut Dream cookie and thank me later. Unless, of course, you're fasting--in which case, oops, sorry.

If I can get in another post before Yom Kippur settles in, then I'll share with you my precious America's Next Top Model thoughts. If not, then I'm off tonight to Kol Nidre services, which will be my one appearance at temple these High Holy Days.

Asshat.

Do you fast?

Cute Jewess said...

Nope. Haven't fasted for a few years now. Neither do my folks.

Fast and atone... maybe it will change your luck :)

Those boys SUCK! Don't they know what a catch you are??? Too bad you're not in Chicago, I have a nice Jewish friend who is on the lookout for a girl!

Michele said...

Everything happens for a reason and those jerks acted like jerks because there is someone better out there for you.

I'm fasting and I'm totally not prepared. I'm so dreading it.

What a jackass. Sorry you had to deal with 2 of them this week...

Dennis, you are so witty and original. Congratulations on that.

Ok, sorry (especially since it's still yom kippur). But still I keep thinking I had a valid point. Why care so much about dating? Why not get involved in some social activity that might have something to offer in addition to romance? Mind you, I'm not saying this as a recommendation as I know next to nothing about dating, and even less about singles bars, just wondering why.

P.S. I don't like the term jewess, though doubtless you don't care.

test

Cute Jewess said...

Oh please. This is a dating blog. Just because I don't write about other things in my life doesn't mean they aren't occurring. As for your "valid point?" "Get a life" is a cliche, meaningless, stupid thing to say. It makes you sound like an unoriginal two-year-old.

Since I don't know you, I can't say you are a dumb ass. But I can say you comment like a dumb ass. As for your "test?" It's called comment moderation. As you are told after you hit publish. Read much?

And no, I don't care a whit what you think about the term Jewess. Or the term dumb ass, for that matter.

Since it is CJ's blog, she can all it whatever she wants. The term Jewess is considered quite offensice, and if anyone non Jewish referred to me in that way I would be offended. Just from reading the blog, it seems like CJ is Jewish by birth, but does not practice/observe the religon so she probably does not even know the implications of the word.

Well, do you care what Websters, dictionary.com, etc., say about Jewess? Here's #1 from dictionary.com: –noun Usually Offensive. a Jewish girl or woman.

Got that? Usually offensive. I'm not necessarily a big fan of cute either, but at least it's not usually offensive.

>Just because I don't write about other things in my life doesn't mean they aren't occurring.

It doesn't mean they are occurring, either.

As for "get a life," well, cliche or not, it does mean something. So excuse me for breathing.

To the 2nd to last commenter: I was raised religious, but reform religious. Bat mitzvahed, etc. I see the term "Jewess" as humorous, a la Gilda Radner's hilarious "The Jewess in Jewess Jeans" from SNL in the 70s. As an MOT, I decree I can call myself whatever I please. If anyone's offended, DON'T READ.

To Annoying Anonymous just above: Dude/Dudette, you need to find a blog that deals in only cliches. That seems more up your alley. Trust me, I will not mourn the loss of you. No, I do not care what the dictionary says. No, I do not excuse you for breathing. Buh-bye.

What's MOT?

As a girl who hates to dress up and never does, I've been thinking about your comment about spending time/money getting ready for a date, in terms of hair/makeup/clothes, etc.

Seems to me that possibly this effort is indicating to these guys (the ones you are meeting for the first time) that you really care and are trying hard. Because we know guys don't react normally, maybe this is working against you. If you showed up not all "datey," maybe they wouldn't feel so pressured.

Just a thought. And I don't actually think you are doing anything wrong; I think the process is at fault. (And I also think these guys are jerks.) But I've recently had some success by dressing down, acting distracted, making myself seem not so interested....and the guys are more at ease.

I actually disagee with the above poster pt. I am a very casual kind of girl who doesn't dress up for dates. However, I also live in Manhattan and am quite certain that most men expect to date women who spend a great deal of time on their hair/makeup/clothes. Actually, I had one ex who was very upset by the "lack of product in my hair" (fortunately I met another professor who thinks I'm beautiful just the way I am - but I can assure you that he is in the minority of men here). I actually think the only cause of your recent dating troubles is the fact that you are really nice, and you kindly gave these guys a second chance when most women would have written them off as flakes. I'm sure that you will soon meet a guy who will appreciate you, and is worthy of your attention.

Best of luck,

Jaclyn

Cute Jewess said...

Aw, thanks Jaclyn, that's really sweet!

I thin RH and I were saying this when the topic came up initially. I don't tend to look "datey" or "done up," but it still takes time and effort to look "natural." And, the entire point of the subject to begin with was that no matter what it takes NYC women way longer to get ready than NYC men--on the whole. Of course there will be exceptions, but they are rare.

Anonymous said...

Ladies, if it takes you that long to look "natural", what do you look like in the am? I have heard many stories of guys being scared away in the morning waking up with a "different" girl. Actually, was this a Seifeld episode.. the girl only looked good in certain light?

acaligurl said...

LOL the comments are entertaining. well cute j i like your name... but of course i would. i'm catholic
LOL again.
so anyhoo, gotta catch up on the last couple months...
and you can't take anonymous comments very seriously. i mean its like they don't exist.

Cute Jewess said...

The FAF used to tell me I look the same in the morning. But then I'd show him differences with concealer, mascara, etc, and he'd see the difference. It's subtle, but it's there.

And that's the last I'm saying on this. Subject moving on.
