choices

a friend sent an email to me today, saying that this quote was on the bottom of their email, and it made this person think of me ...

“I suddenly realized that unless something changed soon, I was going to live a life where my major relationship was with a bottle of wine and I'd finally die fat and alone and be found three weeks later, half-eaten by wild dogs. -Bridget Jones's Diary-”

my reply was, "gee, thanks!"

since we're on the topic of alcohol, please read this too!

i actually enjoyed the first bridget jones movie, but walked out on the second. the email pissed me off. maybe that was the sender's intention? maybe the sender thought it was funny and cute? maybe the sender is put off because i might choose a sultry meritage over him?

Gray, some friends deserve to be ignored, especially if they refuse to play nice. The problem with the Bridget Jones mentality is that happiness is just plain impossible if one is not involved with a man. I can see how some friends might think that YOU could never be happy without them, but the truth is, you could never be happy without ME and that's all there is to it. Everyone else is just extra.

It made them think of you???? And it was a guy??? Maybe he's comforting himself - you know, maybe nobody wants him and he has to think they're sad and alone, as opposed to not sad and not with him. What a wanker! Sheesh. Maybe we need to find some quote that reminds us of *him*.
