Gloria and I

I was getting a little tired of Maggie, over at Okay, Fine, Dammit thinking she was the only one who had met Gloria Steinem. Every time we'd meet for coffee, she was all like, "Did I tell you about the time I met Gloria Steinem?" Yes, Maggie you did.

Some weekends, Maggie would take me cross-country skiing and she'd be all like, "Hey did I tell you about the time Gloria Steinem and I went skiing at her cabin in Aspen?" Whatever Maggie, why don't you just stick your pole in my eye already.

The last straw was when I invited Maggie to go see The Women with me and she said she couldn't because she was already going with Gloria Steinem. That stung.

I don't like to be competitive and all but I am getting a little tired of Maggie running around like she's the only one who's met the feminist icon of our time. So, I'm posting this. This is Gloria Steinem and I after a day of lunch and shopping. Oh, and girl talk, I mean women talk, 'cause, like, don't call us girls. I know my chest and outfit look suspiciously like something Jane Fonda would wear but I assure you, I am completely in love with cream, iridescent leather. So there.

Oh, I remember that day. Glo called me for lunch and shopping but I had plans with Obama. I'm glad she found someone else to go with.

Um, Chris? For a woman in her EXTREMELY early 30s, your neck looks like hell in that picture. Just sayin'.

(P.S. Wonderful post.)

Didn't you know that Gloria is my homie? She gets straight gangster with me all the time. And by 'straight gangster', I mean lesbian.

Fucking Gloria Steinem is a fucking bitch. You know the Geometry Convention you guys are at (you know how Gloria has that clandestine obsession with cubing things)? She was supposed to take me.

Oh, I feel angry text messages coming on.

I should hit up Fonda, she feels my pain.

Gloria never calls me anymore. Now I know why. ;)

dph-
I could totally see that about her.

rassles-
I know, she's really inconsiderate that way. I gave her a bday present, and not only did she not send me a thank you, but she re-gifted the sequin thong I gave her. Really tacky.

Gypsy-
And she never brings me flowers either.
