Reply ingrid September 21, 2008 at 4:01 pm You *should* make a video. I’ll even send you my webcam. God knows I’m not using mine in any reasonable way. You also need to sit to the side and look awkwardly over your shoulder at the video camera. You *could* do “5 minutes for women and men who aren’t parents and who get looked at strangely when confessing that you don’t want children: how to cope with the hostility”. That’s one catchy title. Reply kenju September 21, 2008 at 4:24 pm I think she’s right, but some people get so many comments (and emails) that it is almost impossible to visit everyone. I’m not there yet, BTW. Reply Astrogirl September 21, 2008 at 4:48 pm Wait – I should be friendly? Huh. My strategy of being a raging bitch is working well so far. Crap! I’ve GOT to stop leaving my opinions all over the blogosphere, like so much discarded underwear. BTW Is there a waiting list for that video of Neil’s strategy for Building Strong Friendships? I’ll take one. Reply All Adither September 21, 2008 at 5:23 pm Duh Reply Greg September 21, 2008 at 5:29 pm I felt a strong urge to punch everyone in that video in the face. Oh whoops–was that too negative? Reply TMC September 21, 2008 at 6:23 pm Perhaps you could tell us all which of us you don’t like so we can retaliate accordingly. 🙂 Reply AnnieH September 21, 2008 at 6:35 pm OMG!!! I so saw these same three women in The Cougars Den last night. Except Cougar#3 is changing up the rules today. “Rule #Wh-One: Stay Away From The Lights.” Perhaps they should stick to that. Sorry, a little Bitter Bitch just exuded onto the screen. Reply Hilly September 21, 2008 at 7:51 pm She is so right about the commenting thing. I need to find out who that girl is (the cute one in the green top) cause uh…I dig her. Reply paintergirl September 21, 2008 at 8:34 pm I’m sorry, I feel like I’m a Gawker girl and I want to make some crass comment about these women.(I will never win a popularity contest) I heart you Neil, and I agree, you should make a video. Reply blackbird September 21, 2008 at 8:48 pm I lasted just over a minute watching that. Why ARE they sitting that way? Is that nice lady’s blog called Babywearing? I can’t even think of a third question. WHY are they sitting like that? Reply Christine September 21, 2008 at 9:53 pm ~faints~ Reply Redneck Mommy September 21, 2008 at 10:31 pm Dude…wait. You don’t LIKE ME? Sniff. Here I thought my flirting with you was finally wearing you down. Reply texasholly @ June Cleaver Nirvana September 21, 2008 at 11:03 pm My world has ended. Reply Peeved Michelle September 21, 2008 at 11:09 pm Please let me know when we are friends. Reply natalie September 22, 2008 at 1:33 am well i knew you didn’t like us. that much is quite obvious from your posting. it’s amazing how many of us will come back and try to wear you down. most of us can’t stand for people to not like us. we will succeed in getting to you. eventually we will. Reply followthatdog September 22, 2008 at 1:35 am I’m so lucky. I am too distracted to have any opinions. I can just nod and smile with the best of them. Reply Poppy Buxom September 22, 2008 at 1:37 am Yay, I get to be the bitch who doesn’t watch the video to find out whether the chick in the green top is pregnant or just has the world’s worst case of muffin top. Reply kateanon September 22, 2008 at 11:12 am I really prefer being friendless, and excuse me – you mean there’s someone out there who DOESN’T want my opinion? Reply Rattling the Kettle September 22, 2008 at 10:33 pm Screw you, Neilochka! Reply Neil September 22, 2008 at 10:58 pm Rattling — Thanks. At least you read and understood the post. Reply Anissa@Hope4Peyton September 24, 2008 at 12:23 am You love me, don’t try to act tough and cool in front of your friends. I know the truth. Reply Di September 26, 2008 at 2:14 pm Impossible, most of us are so entirely lovable. Reply 1 Pingback How To: : Snug’d Leave a Reply Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
