It’s an Outrage!

Friends and neighbors, I’m here to tell you that the Great Munuvian Susie of Practical Penumbra has passed judgment on me, and found me wanting. I mean that when I saw this, I broke my monocle in outrage. After retrieving a second eyepiece, I looked again to ensure that my eyes did not deceive me, and damned if I didn’t break my second monocle of the evening, as it was true.

Let’s convene the jury, and take a look at the facts. I put up this brilliant post about disrespect in the workplace. Susie publicly proclaims that it was me that spawned the idea. She finally finds the time to respond with her own ideas. And then she just runs with it. And now there’s a contest.

So now that the facts are in, does any body else here think that I should have been chosen as a Judge? Hmmn?

What’s that you say? Bill is not on my blogroll. Well fine! He’s there now. I’ve been reading Bill since before he took his Christmas hiatus (the bastard didn’t blog anything for almost two weeks!), and I’m telling you I didn’t know how to be Intelligent at that time because he wasn’t showing me the opposite.

I don’t know Stupid? I mean I’m uneducated like Emma, doesn’t that qualify me? All I can say here is that I’ve seen stupid and I’ve been stupid, and I know stupid!

Will I enter the contest to prove that I know stupid? Maybe I will and maybe I won’t. Probably I won’t, just so she doesn’t get the satisfaction of rubbing the idea she stole from me in my face.

I know I’m just a newbie here, but does that give her the right to look down on me from her “Ivory Penumbra” and pass judgment on me? Just slap me in the face with my own idea, and I’d be fine with that? Well I’ll tell you that “this aggression will not stand, man”.

I tried sucking up to her by putting her on my blogroll. I tried making nice comments on her posts. Nothing works with her. I guess that I’m just going to be the “redheaded stepchild” forever.

I can accept the fact that I’m not to be a judge. I can accept that despite coming on to me at first, she now finds me to be uninteresting. I mean I’m still cute, but in a “toxic festering” sort of way. Just like someone of her power, step on the little people to get to the top. I don’t know how I’ll get back at her, but rest assured, victory will be mine!

I’ll find some way to drag myself up to her level, and then we’ll compete as equals. I’m a guy, so I’m going to win!

As long as she doesn’t pull her gender card on me, then I’m screwed.

So it's war, is it? Well, then, let me just slip into this little black strapless number with the slit up the back of the skirt...it's much too warm here for pantyhose, btw...and we can discuss your surrender terms...

Oops, did I play my gender card? ;)

Posted by: Susie at April 19, 2004 12:54 AM

No. I don't think you played your gender card at all. I mean, it's just you being you right? I respect your womanhood, and *ahem* everything that goes along with that. (casually dropping arm around)

Come on now. I maybe said some things, but I'm hurtin' a little, and you know how I get when I'm hurtin'.

(Little nibble on the ear)

I don't mean nothin' by it. You know I Love you baby.

(taking out the trash)

Curses! Foiled again!

The gender card is sort of a trump. You're never going to beat it.

Although I sort of feel like I'm intruding here. I'll just leave you two alone.

Always feel free to "intrude". If I didn't want to hear back from all the fine folks in the 'sphere, then I wouldn't have comments enabled. As long as you're not being a troll, comment all you wish.

Posted by: Johnny - Oh at April 20, 2004 09:37 AM

OK then. Comment I will. It's just that you and Susie seem a little busy in this particular comment string. I'll just find somewhere else to comment and leave you two alone.

Screw that privacy crap. I'm taping this for blackmail purposes.

Or private use. I'm not sure which yet.

You trying to horn in on mny action Harvey?

Well forget it Bub! You'll have to pay the $39.95 for the video feed like everyone else.

Susie, that little red light is just a night-lite. Pay no attention to it. ;)

A red light, Johnny? I'll have you know I DON'T charge for my favors...just a little quid pro quo--although a big quid pro quo is ALWAYS welcome...
