like tegan and sara, i am so jealous

i'm sitting in my sister's living room using her new laptop to check email, post, etc. it is a glowing white iBook and the keys make a satisfying click when i type. jon's got a new lappy, too. i want one! i've been borrowing a computer from jeremy for the last few months, but i'd really like something of my own and something that is a bit more portable than his old laptop.

why can't i be a kept woman? i bet i could even get an iPod out of a deal like that.

I'd offer to make you my kept woman, Dorotha, but I can't afford a $10 CD player, much less an iPod

I take pity on you and your Windows 98 can't-run-anything computer and loan you my laptop--and a wireless adapter so you can mooch highspeed Internet from your neighbors--and this is the thanks I get.

no, no, no! i LOVE the laptop that you are lending me. i just want something sleek that i can put stickers on. yours just has that one iowa sticker...

um, i also want a wireless card instead of that big ol' thing on a cord that you gave me.

but, i mean, i totally appreciate the loan.

um, and steph and jamie, thanks for letting me steal your signal.

Whatever happened to the gender prelim quote of the day?

Aren't kep women supposed to be all in control and elegant?

Sorry Dorotha, but you (and I, and JAB, for that matter) would make the worst kept women on earth. Every time they said something dumb, we'd be all, "Shut the hell up!" and then we'd lose our privileges.

True Story: When my male feminist theory professor heard I was getting married, he told several people, I was "going to be a kept woman."

Belle, that's the grossest thing.

Was he jealous?

Jealous of marrying into one of the named families of Peoria, IL?!

Faculty majorly screwed with my brain at that institution. Prehaps I'll tell a few more tales out of school on my own blog.

No, not jealous of you; jealous of your husband.

Oh, Ang! That never even crossed my mind! You're lovely. Thank you!
