Um. Gross?
I'm back. Let's get together soon.

Yes, let's. I'm glad you're going to be here.

I hear your laughter ringing in my ears on this one:)

That's good! Personally, I think it's hard for someone who isn't a Sado-Masochist to find Protestant single-dom sexy. Catholics, well, they're all about sex. . .

Seriously?

I don't even understand what they're getting at and I come from that background. :-)

I think it's for men who fantasize about the surging badness held tightly in check by good girls' proper Protestant façade. Or something like that.

In other news, I keep meaning to write to tell you how much I loved your reports from the job site. I was caught up in stuff when I wanted to comment. But now I'm telling you: the more of that kind of writing and photographing you present on LJ, the happier I'll be as one of your devoted readers.

out?

As an aside, I was always amused when the ugly girl took off her glasses and revealed she was actually a model. You know, in eighties teen sex romps. We were going to make a movie for our rock band (a real rock band, not a Rock Band rock band) in which the pretty girl has glasses on, and everyone like spits on her or punches her in the face when she speaks... she's that ugly.

Re: out?

You should sue the creators of the series that inspired Ugly Betty!

Re: out?

I wonder if the "spicy" variety is seasoned with chipotle...or SIN?

hah. That the terms used to classify "singles" in this ad. can so easily be applied to food demonstrates just how objectifying online dating sites are, as does the fact that one can "search and view." Wow! It's just like shopping, only for people.....shopping for people who want to shop for people.

Re: out?

All too true. Excellent point about the simultaneous demetaphorization and remetaphorization of taste here. We want to eat, even when what we eat provides no sustenance.

Re: out?

Maybe "dining/eating," rather than "shopping" per se, is the big, underlying conceptual metaphor for these online dating things. "Searching and viewing" is like looking at a menu, and people are after "single" servings rather than full-course meals....I need to re-read George Lakoff; metaphors really do reveal substantive things about our language and culture.

Re: out?

They do. I remember reading that book with great interest. I also taught his son while I was a graduate student. Kind of a mess, from a schoolwork standpoint.

Re: out?

The information age, I think, has made many people my age (myself included, read my most recent entry) into messes. All of the information is there (and most of it is free, for that matter), but it's not organized in a fashion that facilitates learning.

For instance, I'm trying to learn about Foucault, but my lack of knowledge of French Hegelianism (Hyppolite, Kojeve, etc.) and especially phenomenology hinders me from putting his thinking in the right historical context.

I've sort of reached the limit of my self-teaching....heh know any good beginning books on Foucault?
