Well maybe celebrities shouldn't encourage people with all their subliminal eyebrow language. There would be fewer.... misunderstandings.

Right, Anna?

"Over dinner he demonstrated his ability to speak Klingon, the made-up language from "Star Trek," and he had trouble keeping eye contact."

He went all out.

Can someone post a pick of that crazy Bjork stalker guy before he blew his brains out? That dude was seriously creepy.

A restraining order is just another way of saying "I love you."

Sign that your date is on the weird side: he speaks Kilingon

I'm sick of being stalked by celebrities.

This worst part is that they have the budget to be sneaky, so even though I know they are there, I don't know exactly where.

This reminds me of my relationship with Jessica Simpson...the main difference is she wants me to save her from that douche bag Romo.

/trust me, she does

Let me guess. They think said celebrity will notice them out of a crowd and marry/hook up with them.

All stalkers speak Klingon?

What a dork. Everyone knows a strong command of Tolkein's Elvish is the way to win the heart of a fair maiden.

Also, where does the author get off calling Klingon "made-up"?

I'm sure there's plenty of Farkettes around here who would've been hot and bothered if her date was fluent in Klingon.
 
2008-10-09 12:44:56 PM  
I dont think this article is really about celeb stalkers. I think the author is still really proud and flattered to have once a long time ago been hot enough to be stalked. I mean, it's creepy and all, but kinda flattering too.

I think there needs to be one of those myspace type surveys that begs the question, "What kind of stalker are you?"

David Letterman had a weird one not too long ago if I recall...

I don't understand people who like celebrities. (How do you like someone you don't know)

I don't understand people who worship celebrities. (You worship them because.... why?)

It's for damn sure that I don't understand people who stalk celebrities. (Although, I don't think stalking a celebrity is any different than stalking anyone else. Just more attention is paid, celebrity can afford a better defense, and more legal action is likely to be taken).

"He called every few minutes, and if I happened to be on the phone with someone else, he got angry and made threats to "kill any guy" who was interested in me."

Wait, so that doesn't work? Women don't find that romantic?

Is there a word in Klingon for loneliness? Ah, yes: Gargauuuth!

oddly enough, they teach about klingon in linguistics classes because it is the only language that has no inconsistencies or 'broken' rules. at least that's what a linguistics major once told me, so i believed it.

OK, read the article with ONE example of a celebrity stalker and many paragraphs about Dan the Star Trek Geek, who thought the author would marry/hook up with him.

Hmm. How can I start this article on celeb stalkers?
Oh I know, I'll invent a stalker of my own. Now, where do I find all the information on stalking. OH, here it is, "how to be a stalker"


Jeez, could her example have been any more textbook? I call fake.

Well, I'm stalking Wil, but only online. I may be psycho-crazy, but I'm also really crazy-lazy so it kind of evens out.

Maybe celebrities need to start stalking their stalkers. A little reverse psychology can go a long way.

De Becker writes that women are socialized to be friendly at all times, even when it places their personal safety at risk.

this is so true. i know i get called a biatch for not responding to random shiat people yell at me on the street or while i'm walking in a store, but i'd rather be a living biatch than a nice dead girl.

Didn't Letterman have that woman that kept breaking into his house or something? I think he had her removed from the gene pool or something.
Thanks for the link, will have to check at home also...

I came to say something similar...sure sounded like a "look at me!" article. She kept referring to Dan through the whole article too. I'll bet Dan is sick of the author stalking him via the media!!

So wait, celebrities get the cream of the stalker crop too? You know, I'm fine with them getting all the money, all the free stuff and so on, but when it comes to the stalkers I have to draw a line. Where is MY stalker with a 'serious psychotic illness'? I mean come on!

You know, you can actually land a fairly decent scholarship if you prove you can speak klingon. I mean, it wont pay your way through school but its like a grand or two.

I dont think I would make a good stalker. After a few hours hiding out in the bushes i would get bored and go find something to eat.

I'm more of a 'dead rat in your mailbox for scorning me' kinda guy anyways.

Indeed. It is a characteristic of this society, one that has been overwhelmed by the intrusive and entirely unnecessary invention of the Tee Vee, or idiot box as i and my frinds call it of misplaced "celebrity worship."

That is why I long ago donated my Tee Vee to an underprivileged shelter for homeless women, and which has freed up my time and my talents for my writing.

I worked with this chick that loved Kenny Chesney. She was obsessed with moving to Nashville, even interviewed for a job up there. When he married Renee, she was so depressed that she didn't show up for work for a couple of days.

She also had this Single White Female thing going too. Copying my clothes, arranging the items on her desk exactly like mine, etc.

Real creepy, but generally harmless. She was a bit too stupid to be much harm.

Drubell: I'm sure there's plenty of Farkettes around here who would've been hot and bothered if her date was fluent in Klingon.


Speakers of Klingon. Hot? Rarely. Bothered? Perhaps bothersome?

As for the stalkers thing its true that women have the affinity of not wanting to hurt a guys feelings and that can lead to prolonged interest. That said...guys have been fed a long line of bull shiat preceding that. If we just hang in there...she'll turn around and see us for who we are and be smitten with us. Books, movies and songs all sing about it.

Ladies just be straight with us poor saps. We rarely know what were doing in the ways of amour. Most of the time it takes a good friend to say..."Dude, she is not into you."

Do that and we'll stop riding past your house on our bike all day...we may even let you have your cat back.
