I'd like to thank the Academy

This is my 100th post. Which is hard to believe, seeing as I never, in a million years, thought that this blog would maintain my interest for more than a month...but here I am....100. Wow.

And in typical fasion, in honor of my 100th post, I'd like to bitch about guys.

For the past couple of weeks my friend J, has been going on and on about what a loser his friend Dwayne is. No job, no car, manic depressive, lives at home...you know, the dream boat that every girls hopes and dreams for.

Then last night, I called my friend J, and he says "Hey...I told Dwayne about you, he wants to take you out for lunch. Do you wanna go with him?"

I cant grasp the concept of how my friend talks about what a loser this guy is, and then thinks its a good idea to set me up on a date with him....a blind date no less. And honestly, I cant express how insulted I am....So I get off the phone with J, and decide to call him back and find out what the fuck he's thinking.

He says that Dwayne needs a good kick in the ass from a girl who wont put up with a guy like that, and thinks that I am just the girl to do it. He tells me this, of course, and laughs his head off....I dont know what he's thinking. And then, he has the nerve to say "So...Giving him your number was a Bad Idea then??"

Am I wrong girls? Is this something to be slightly pissed about? J says hes a good looking guy, but thats about all he has going for him....Oh, that and the fact that although he owns a house, cant afford to live there, so he rents it out, and lives at home.

...anyway...on my hundreth post, i'd like to say thanks for those of you who were, and continue to be, my inspiration to keep this blog going.....Without your feedback, id have given up on it long ago.....

Princess Pessimism said...

Berly - if I knew that, i wouldnt still be scratching my head over it.

slopmaster said...

always getting mad about something!

Trib said...

Congratulations on 100 posts! You're welcome for whatever feedback I can provide.
As far as J goes: that doesn't make sense on any level. Say 'no' to pro bono therapy. Hopefully word will get back to Dwayne so you don't have to deal with him yourself.

rawbean said...

Yea that's not cool at all. Maybe you should return the favor and set him up with a real winner.

Hernesto G said...

i come to celebrate your 100th post!!!

where is Yrautca, not here for this Gala Event?

Lindsey said...

Congrats on the 100th post!

What a moron! If you think he's a loser...why the hell would I want to date him? I will have you know that my sister did this to me not too long ago. I asked her why in the hell she would even think of setting me up w/ this guy and she said, "b/c he's the only single guy your age that I know." Holy shit. I'm not that desperat.e

angel, jr. said...

Congrats on the 100th. I am a guy, so I don't have much to say about your post.

Princess Pessimism said...

Slop - Mad?? Well Come ON. Wouldnt you be slightly annoyed if your friend gave out your phone number to a complete stranger?....LOL *I just realized how funny that was*

Trib - Oh believe me. I said NO as many times as I could. And you do provide feed back...and I appreciate it. =)

Rawbean - I already told him "Paybacks a Bitch"...LOL

Hernesto - Back from the dead I see....Yrautca doesnt post here anymore....

Linny - At least you understand. That's EXACTLY what I told him, not to mention, his last name, rhymes with his first name....hahaha

Angel - Thanks....And that's okay...just knowing you care enough to comment, that you have nothing to say, is lovely. =)

Liz said...

Sounds like he is looking for some amusement. I’m guessing you are not interested in going out with this winner.

Princess Pessimism said...

Liz - Oh...well...I havent ruled it out completely. LOL..kidding

Phil said...

You shouldn't be mad. You're both his friends and he wants both of you to be happy. His friend must have some redeeming qualities otherwise he wouldn't be friends. So you're free then? Because I've got a friend who would be perfect for you!

Sylvana said...

OMG! It sounds like he is thinking more of Dwayne than you! That is very insulting!! Why does he think that you should have that trouble in your life? MEN!!

Miss Ash said...

When Dwyane calls just tell him that you've already heard so many horrible stories about him and his laziness courtesy of his "friend" J and tell him you're not interested :)

Princess Pessimism said...

Phil - Ohh...arent you cute. You do make a valid point though. He must have some redeeming qualities...he says that Dwayne is a good guy, he's just in a slump. But I dont have time for someone that isnt motivated enough to find a job on their own.

Sylvana - THAT I dont know...and that's why I was insulted

Ash - LOL...BRILLIANCE. This is why I love you

Jennifer said...

PP, I've been in the, 'I have a loser friend who needs a kick in the ass' dating arena, that's how I ended up messing with the Muck-Muck. My advice is run, run the other way, and tell J to fuck off, and tell Dwayne exactly what Ash said. She's right.

Princess Pessimism said...

Jennifer - Ya, I totally agree. Luckily he hasnt called so far, but J told him that I was available Thursdady and Fridays....Nice eh?

Cynthia said...

You never set a friend up with someone that you know is a loser. And you NEVER give out your friend's number without asking first. Unbelievable. I'd be pissed, too.

Tai said...

Congrats on post # 100!

If this guy is SUCH a loser, why is your buddy his friend?
And damn it, I wouldn't have friends like THAT if they were talking about me like that behind my back...who knows what they're saying about YOU when you're not around!

Princess Pessimism said...

Cynthia - Exactly. Thank you =)

Tai - Oh, well...I'm not that paranoid....If he's talking about me, and I find out about it...Then. that's when i'll worry about it.

Natalia said...

Yaay for the bloggiversary of sorts. 100 is a lot of posts...I have not checked my number yet. :)

And you are absolutely right. It has happened before that someone has tried to hook me up with someone they have talked about in that way.

Hey...he's a loser, maybe he'll like you and maybe you'll like him. WHAT? That makes me feel like you don't think much of me at all.

Ick. Really.

Jennifer said...

Your blogiversary made me wonder when my next blogiversary was coming up. Turns out it was 8 posts ago.
Only 92 posts to go before my next one.

Princess Pessimism said...

Natalia - Yes, its mildly insulting, considering this is someone that I call my friend....I dont know, Dwayne hasnt called...yet...so i'm keeping my fingers crossed.

Jennifer - Ohh....Congrats anyway!

Sexy Suburbanite said...

No No No -- Do NOT go out with this guy! Trying to "fix" a broken guy is so not worth it (no matter what he looks like).

Princess Pessimism said...

S.Subs - Yes...I completely agree...

you know, sometimes, your insight is more helpful than you can even imagine.

Amichai said...

One simple explanation. This isn't true for ever situation, but in general, gender beats out freindship. If a girlfreind is in a bad place other girls will try and set her up with a good guy even if it's to his detriment being with her, and clearly, as you've written, vice versa.

it's weird, but often true, humans are strange creatures.
