Fark off...I wrote mine at 17.


Started mine when I was 5. Finished when I was 7. Took me that long because I was only allowed an hour on the computer each night as a kid.

Chapter 7 is about my resentment of that fact.

Daddy issues. A lot.

I read the books' excerpts on amazon and it comes out as:
- crazy (he sounds like it) Chinese dad projecting ambition and perfectionist values on the kids
- she gets to med school but cannot stand those vulgar, mundane patients, the pus and all but she dreams of champagne-soaked nights in the capital by becoming a journalist (more like a Sex and the City projection but that's my opinion)
- drops everything and goes to washington

now I'd just like to know how anyone suffering from such delusions while being barely able to spew two mediocre pieces for polichicks.com four years ago can actually make it. Also, having two self-published books on amazon isn't an achievement.

Sounds like she's pulling an Alyssa Bereznak and that all that flak will end up being beneficial for her.

/I just to a look at her twitter account, for someone with her pretentions, she sounds a lot like a funded party-crasher more than anything else

I think he was trying to put it nicely.  What he probably was really thinking when he said "I'm no looking for a relationship" (which rarely means just that when someone says it because if Heidi Klum came along, they'd all of a sudden be open to the concept) was "I woke up and realized you're a fat psycho, and I need to run, but I better put this delicately, unless I want a boiled rabbit in my kitchen when I come home".

DjangoStonereaver: Call me old fashioned, but I think so.  It shows basic respect for her as a person.


So under the "old fashioned" rules, I'm obligated to call a woman to tell her I don't want a third date with her. So what if I call her and ask her out on a third date, but she's not interested. Is she then obligated to return my call and tell me she's not interested? Because that doesn't happen in the modern world. I'll call for a third date and generally a woman will just ignore the call and never call back. Every once in a while I'll get a "thanks but no thanks" text.

I used to err on the side of "old fashioned" and call instead of text, return calls even if it meant an awkward conversation, etc. Then I realized that women don't play by those rules. Just not calling someone seems to be the preferred way to signal you don't want to see them again (at least after only a couple of dates).

Literally Addicted: Iduber humper: Literally Addicted: bunner: EngineerAU: It's a question of quality of construction and quality of neighbors. If you own in a quality building with logically thought out floor plans and good construction practices, you rarely hear the neighbors.

I don't think I will ever shell out 200k for the privilege of sleeping in an apartment building,

If only they went so cheap here.  If you can afford twice that for 600sf by the time you're 25 (without, assuming, getting the money from your parents), then you can be a little smug.  Just a little.

Not really.  Mortgages are anchors.  At that age, especially, stay the hell away from debt -- it's a dream killer only a baby can top.

Then there are the maintenance fees...add another $800-1200 per month.  And property taxes...and insurance...it's a money pit.

It'll be real interesting when the condo values in Toronto drop in a few years (and I know they will).  Watch all the smug young yuppies freak out then.


I've never let smug bother me because I know they're dumbasses. Character defect. Not that I'm against striving for accomplishment; to compete against your peers for material goods is foolish.

Expensive car + expensive mortgage = ball and chain. Loss of freedom for an image.

HotIgneous Intruder: This she-creature is a very typical D.C. power-seeking courtier hoar slut biatch on a date with whom you're expected to bring your updated resume and most recent W-2 form(s). Merely presenting them with a (large) penis doesn't soothe these types and they are latently mentally ill.

You don't wanna go there, don't stick your dick, etc.


This so much. I had a cousin that got a job as a White House intern (funny thing she kinda looked like Lewinski) and I worked at a lot of clubs, concerts and events and every now and then she would come out with me. Now she wasnt bad but the friends she brought with her were like you just described. They were all going to be in the house, senate, head of a department or president and the bugs up their asses had a bug up their ass.

I agree.  If I call him and he doesn't call me back, I assume he's not interested and forget about it.  If I run into him after a few months and we have an awkward moment of chitchat and he says 'call me', I usually take that as guy-speak for "I'm being polite, don't really call me" and I forget about it.   If he calls me, I'll call back.

I figure if a guy goes through the trouble of looking up your number and actually calling, then its because he wants to talk to you.  If he doesn't, then its because you haven't crossed his mind and he's not particularly interested.  Fair enough.  Pushing the issue doesn't make it work and punishing the guy makes you look like a biatch.

Have a feling the 'Rando' wasn't completely random and was ultimately to be used as a door to a higher level in the DC social scene. The knockback put a major crimp in her social plans and she is back to square 1 (more likely square zero now....), hence the freakout...

manimal2878: DjangoStonereaver: It was still gutless to dump her via a text, even if she may have gone a bit overboard in shaming him on
her blog.

No it's not.  Maybe in the early 2000s that would be true, before texting became as ubiquitous as it is now. People don't call each other to talk as much anymore, texting is how many people communicate.


My ex-husband and I had such a bad relationship, we negotiated everything for our divorce via text, e-mailed documents, and FedExed originals.  We had no desire to be around each other.  If I can end a marriage and go through an entire divorce without picking up a phone, calling it off after TWO dates is more than acceptable and this chick is just another reason why I don't get along with my own gender.

I disagree.  An idiot likely wouldn't be able to maintain a job that could pay for it.  But namecalling - that's real test of intelligence, right?

Toronto is pretty spread out, so most commute far if you work downtown.  Downtown condos may be expensive, but they provide a quality of life for many.  Living downtown, I enjoy a 5 minute walk commute, I spend more of my time doing the things I want to (walk my dog, cook, attend events) and I don't have to shovel a driveway in the winter.  Built in security and a free gym.  Not a bad life.

That, and downtown a 2500sf house can run upwards from 800k.  That's just ridiculous.

/commute used to be an hour and a half on two transit systems, or an hour and a half driving.  Toronto traffic is stupid.

Guys listen up, I think I figured out Lumpy Space Princess here. Considering she likes Ted Cruz, and thinks that owning a Condo at 25 is a big unlockable achievement, I can safely assume she's a neocon twatwaffle. But aside from that I think her pathology of self-importance really comes from the fact that she was an Asian Girl growing up in Georgia. Because she was a rare breed, her self-importance was exponentially increased in her mind, because in Georgia, an Asian girl, even a plain, chubby one, is quite the catch. Add to this a completely vindictive personality and teahadist upbringing and leanings, and you have the makings of the next Michelle Malkin.

I mean, I am not excusing her inane behavior, but I like to pretend there is a rational explanation for her crazy. Now my prognostication: In the next five years, she's gonna be banging some old ultraconservative lobbyist in DC, and she will blame the "Liberal Media" for her failure as an Author. She will attempt to win a Fox News gig as the voice of "Young Asian Americans", but fail in that too because she's not blonde enough. After aborting her lobbyist lovechild when she catches him in bed with a 19-year old Brazilian/Canadian stewardess, she washes away in DC bar obscurity, hooks up with a chronic masturbator hopelessly addicted to MMORPGS with a trust fund after a gross sexual encounter in a public restroom, and eeks out the rest of her sad existence as a biatchy customer at Micheal's bothering the employees with useless crafts and being far too old and flabby for her Yoga Pants. At the age of 32, her life will be effectively over.

Some of the funnier ones I've seen are the ones where the girl "dumps" the guy, and his response is pretty much "Ok." Then, she flips out in a similar fashion to the way this girl did, but only because the guy wasn't completely destroyed by being "dumped" by her.

Carn: Carth: Carn: Carth: I want to see an interview with the guy. I'm just going to assume this whole thing is fake and intended to get publicity for her terrible book until then. No one could be that self centered.

I can tell you've never been to the bars in DC.  Visit Clarendon or Dupont or Adam's Morgan on a Saturday night.  People like this (men and women) are a dime a dozen.

I live near Dupot and Adam's Morgan. Thank you for affirming my decisions to not go out to the bars on weekends.

Yeah it's awful.  I don't go to either any more but even 8 or 9 years ago the only place I liked in Adam's Morgan was Asylum which is gone.  These days it's even more crowded with the added bonus of the occasional shooting when all the drunks pour out of the bars for pizza at closing time.

Clarendon actually is slightly better, only for the fact that there are more choices and a couple don't completely suck.  Clarendon ballroom, Clarendon Grill, Mr Days are still completely off limits *shudder*.  And of course Dr Dremo's is gone too but I never thought that place was as cool as anybody wanted it to be.

So yeah fark it.


Last time I was in AM there were tons of fights and I miss the Asylum too. Is Chief Ikes Mambo room still around? Last time I even got close to AM was this place called Murphys which is closer to the zoo right off Conneticut.

So, I just decided to actually RTFA and this part does stand out in her favor:
"He wouldn't be in town, so he scheduled a weekend in Virginia wine country the following weekend," she writes. "It seemed a bit much, but I agreed to a singular day trip."
However, before Quin could even pack her favorite sun hat and parasol, the couple's plans quickly unraveled when Rando sent Quin a text terminating their brief relationship:


So yeah, scheduling a trip that early is weird.  Canceling a trip like that right after scheduling it, also weird.
I'm betting the conversation went something like:
"hey, last night was fun.  Let's go out to dinner tonight."
"yeah, I'm um, washing my hair."
"ok, how about my friend's birthday party."
"Sorry, out of town"
"the weekend after that."
"(um, shiat, shiat, need another excuse.  she's not getting it.  Something that sounds too expensive to cancel or bring her along on, but also something super-implausible to maybe give her the hint.  Ah, I've got it): Well I've got this trip to the wine country booked..."
"oh, I'd love to go!"
