Peep Throat
So many nosy newspapers out there, hoping to suck you dry of your personal demographics in exchange for besieging you with pop-up ads while you try to read an article online. Then there's that long registration process you have to go through. (I generally register as the demographically worst possible reader they could have -- an 88-year-old woman on food stamps living in public housing.) Never again!

As an 88-year-old woman on food stamps living in public housing, I resent your assertion that I'm an undesirable demographic.

Lena: Be glad you're not black. Or gay.

Amy: Thanks for that.

"Lena: Be glad you're not black. Or gay."

You're still getting to know me, Crid. I am indeed an 88-year-old black lesbian on food stamps in public housing. You got a problem with that?

So Lena-

What are you wearing right now?

Posted by: eric the moonbat at April 30, 2004 2:06 PM

Maude Frizon blue leather pumps.

Bitch! Those are mine!

Hmmm- probably not a lot of hiking boots in Lenas/Amys closet I'm guessing.

I do just about everything but shower in 4-inch heels. (For showering, it's 3.5-inch Walter Steigers with Vibram soles.)

"probably not a lot of hiking boots in Lenas/Amys closet"

You're 100% correct about the absence of hiking boots, Eric, but not about "Amy's closet." Lena has a closet. Amy, however, has a warehouse. Sometimes when she's in there picking out an outfit, I get worried that she's not going to be able to find her way back out.

> You got a problem with that?

No, so long as you're not handicapped, or some kind of foreigner.

Crid, there's still so much to share! It just so happens that I'm an 88-year-old black lesbian amputee who immigrated to the U.S. so that I take advantage of all the food stamps and fine public housing projects. Eat me!

>> It just so happens that I'm

Whatever, so long as you're God-fearing.
