Tuesday night

My bedroom is a complete mess. I have a pile of skirts on my desk, a collection of shopping bags that is gathering dust near my bathroom. My desk is covered with mail, old time out new yorks and Victoria Secret catalogs. I have been meaning to clean this up but I have been playing office jockey for the last couple of weeks and I am exhausted when I come back in.

Its actually my own fault. Its been like this for awhile and I keep telling myself I am going to clean this place up. I usally start cursing to myself that things will be different when I am missing one of my Jimmy Choos. Then I find it and run to a party and forget about seeing the light about being messy until next crisis.

Dad got me a palmpilot to help me organize but got really pissed when I lost it. It seems hopeless. I am lucky that I even get my bills done in time.

I call shenanigans on this whole blog. You call missing a Jimmy Choo a crisis? A Manolo, maybe. A Christian Louboutin, possibly. But a Jimmy Choo? Get real.

And by the way, how is it that a "Prada Princess" such as yourself stoops to Victoria's Secret? You don't shop exclusively for La Perla at Barney's or La Petite Coquette?

And the nonchalantly "ironic statement "Dad got me a palmpilot to help me organize but got really pissed when I lost it." I know pathos, ethos, and logos when I see it. You're doing a piss-poor job of using it, but I can still see it.

It gets better and better. Just keep on "writing," sweetie.

Perhaps "the writer" can suggest a domain where we can all see examples of his own writing.

Just trying to be equable.

Besides, I don't have any specific problems with the girl, assuming she's real. But if you're going to whine at her about being a poor writer, then assume that she's able to use the persuasive appeal theory of logos, pathos and ethos, you're either a fool or you're googling too hard.

OK, and maybe I'm feeling a little more aympathetic in my old age, if 29 qualifies.

Victoria's Secret?! Please. No self-respecting JAP would shop there. P.S. Hello, hire a cleaning lady.

Yeah, Ole, that's the best idea I've ever heard. Post my uncopyrighted work on the internet, for Godssakes. Even better, put a LINK to it on a page that receives moderate traffic. What the hell is wrong with you?

Aside from that, I indeed called her a piss-poor writer, then referred to her attempts to use classic persuasive appeals. "A little knowledge is a dangerous thing." Think about that.

What kind of NYC JAP does not even have a cleaning lady?

I could let everything else slide as possible: wanting a maid's room in your apartment; hanging out at house parties in Brooklyn in sketchy neighborhoods (WTF?); getting fat; keeping a blog; seeing obscure martial arts films; and lying about buying Louis Vuitton on sale. However, this time you have crossed the line and now I know you are fake.

Dear the writer:
You are a douche. Anyone with half a brain knows that Copyright is secured automatically when the work is created.

In other words, don't worry about copyright protection, you already have it (ask any half-assed lawyer to confirm).

So, let's see what you've got.

So be it. Some of my work is quite lengthy (essays, scholarly works, literary commentaries), and I'd be happy to make a net portfolio if anyone can reccomend a free webhost that won't lose my formatting... AOL's "Easy Designer" didn't allow enough space and it lost my format.

Fairly elementary stuff for a "writer" to be unaware of, I'm thinking. Which literary works do you comment on? See Spot Run? Books with "I'm waterproof and chewable" on the back?

Nothing important to add, just thought I'd join the party. I will say, however, it amuses me when people write comment such as this:
"And by the way, how is it that a Prada Princess such as yourself stoops to Victoria's Secret?"
without realising they sound worse than PP by stooping to her level of label whore-ishness (and don't file this under "A defence for PP" because it obviously isn't one) Btw Ole, "aympathetic"? You really don't use spellcheck do you? ;) But I will say that I agree with you.

Spellcheck, shit. I know what I mean ;)

Sarcasm. You should look it up.

As far as web hosts being "elementary," Ole, I am unfamiliar with internet publishing, as I don't have the desperate need for positive reinforcement from strangers. Professors, peers, and fellow student writers are enough for me.

I repeat: give me a web host and I'll post my work.

"Give me a webhost".

I wonder... do you do your own laundry? Mum won't be there foever, you know.
