The Nondating Life

Thursday, June 23, 2005


So People Magazine, in its infinite lack of wisdom when it comes to drawing up these lists, almost had a passing moment of inspiration when they picked a BLOGGER for its Most Eligible Bachelor issue. Sadly, they fumbled the ball. Turns out that not only was the blogger not me, but it was some other New York schlub who blogs about, get this, dating.

Of course, I don't blog so much about dating as about relationships, gender issues and how one should comport oneself. Jason Mulgrew blogs about actual dating experiences. And we all know how I feel about that. It's just asking for a world of Karmic trouble.

Think I'm lying? Well, none other than Mr. Mulgrew himself has found that he's been rendered impotent by this People magazine thing. (I'd provide a perm link, but he doesn't have any, it seems.)

Sayeth Mr. Mulgrew:

I find it impossible to be self-deprecating when a real-live magazine said I was "hot".

Yeah, well, remember this Jason. Every other year, People magazine thinks Julia Roberts is the most beautiful person in the world. (And, yes, I realize he's joking. I get the humor. Har de har fucking har.)

Anyway, I'm obviously boiling with rage and envy and I'm saying all of this in jest. I actually called friends at People and bitched at them about this obvious mistake. But I'm over it. Really. Besides, my mom says I'm funnier AND better looking.

So, congrats, Jason.

UPDATE: I'm always up for some gratutitous and cheap compliments, but this is all in fun, so please refrain from being mean to Mr. Mulgrew in my comments. I don't want to start any blog wars.
