Blogorama...hear me roar...er, meow.
So I have had so much stuff on my mind that I wanted to post about...I'll just post it all! Well, short versions...
Scarlet - I love how you asked for my address to send a "note" and also sent a fantastic candle...which looks expensive and now I feel guilty...but I love it! How did you know I love candles?
Speaking of secrets...Pheromone Girl's post got me thinking. How many secrets do we have? I suppose I have a lot but not consciously. I just don't spill my guts to just anyone.
Then I started to think about women and anger - and Brittany's post about angst continued that train of thought.
Adrienne Rich wrote that women writers should theoretically be writing about anger all the time, because we have so much sexist crap to deal with. What do you think?
I think society for the most part is still scared to hear a woman roar.
And back to Scarlet and PG, who have both blown me away by thanking me for "being me." Which is a relatively new experience because most of my life I've been told that I need to tone it down, stop swearing so much, be less intense...by men, mainly. Well, fuck that.
So I'll close with something I blurted out once that I am SO GLAD I said.
Guy I've dated a couple of times: "You shouldn't swear so much."
Me: "Why, does it offend you?"
Guy: "No, but it's just not very lady-like."
Me: "Fuck you!"
I called him later and apologized, but fortunately, I had put him off already :)
