05:05 pm - WTF? when did that happen?
so when did it become so cool to be a soccer mom that people started putting logos on their cars? I've noticed several vehicles, mostly, but not all, SUVs, with giant vinyl soccer ball stickers on the backs or sides. They're everywhere lately. Didn't the term used to be derogatory? I mean, it wasn't like "dumbass bitch" derogatory, but I thought always thought it was "Hot piece of ass" derogatory. Chauvinistic, I guess you'd say. Or has it been taken back as empowering like the terms "nigga" and "queer?"

Remember - "geek" used to be an insult, too.

and exactly what are you trying to say, Poindexter!?

What, the fact that I use zeroes for "o"s in my LJ username doesn't scream it loud enough?

Should I post a picture of me wearing my Periodic Table T-shirt to make it more clear? (Hey, the radioactive elements glow in the dark. What could possibly be more cool?)

uh yeah... You do that...

you will of course understand if I have to shove you in your locker after 7th period. It's nothing personal, just part of the ritual. How else am I going to win the big game, have a kegger in my Mom's basement and fuck the head cheerleader.

Oh man... the wrestling is giving you testosterone overload, isn't it?

Breathe slowly, and spend some time with some International Male and MacZone catalogs, and you'll feel much better. :)

Oh, and you can have the head cheerleader. Geek chicks are so much hotter. ;)

hey!!! are you somehow implying that tight shiny t-shirts and macintosh computers are somehow unmanly? I am insulted and demand satisfaction.... someone fetch me my dueling pistols...

i've been seeing those stickers for years. and most of them have a kid's name in them. it more weird to me that parent's advertise their kids names to strangers.
[User Picture]From: chrismaverick Date: November 18th, 2003 - 06:26 pm (Link)
really? yeah, that's pretty freaky. I saw at least 3 or 4 of them on my commute today, but none of them had the kids name, so I just got the impression that it was the parents way of advertising "yes, I am a soccer mom..."

That said, at least its less insulting than the bumpersticker that says "Proud Parent of an Honor Roll Student at Garfield Elementary School." Those are just fucking sad.

I would love to be a soccer mom. Don't they usually have rich husbands and not work?
[User Picture]From: chrismaverick Date: November 19th, 2003 - 06:44 am (Link)
in the old days, yeah... or they'd at least be yuppies where the dad had a decent income and the mom stayed at home and provides taxi service for the kids.

These days though, I think it's more typical for both parents to work full time and yet the mom also ends up providing taxi service for the kids. As well as cooking, cleaning, shopping, etc. Usually she's really stressed and burnt out and looks like a heroin addict too (or meth, if you watch ER).

But hey, at least you get a cool sticker for the back of your minivan....
[User Picture]From: thwomp Date: November 19th, 2003 - 07:49 am (Link)
Hm. Never mind. If I'm going to look like a methhead, I want to at least have the, er, enjoyment? whatever, of actually doing the meth, not just the taxing part.
[User Picture]From: chrismaverick Date: November 19th, 2003 - 07:59 am (Link)
oh... well, on ER, the woman actually was on meth. But somehow, she really didn't look like she was having all that good a time. *shrug*

Anyway, what you really want is to be one of the total MILF soccer moms that stays in really good shape, and wears tight tanktops and short shorts, and all the dads ignore their wives and fawn all over you, so the other moms hate you, but you don't really care because ever since the Henderson boy turned 17, his acne has really cleared up, and he's really been getting in shape, so you've been calling him over to mow your lawn (without his shirt of course) and secretly screwing him every Thursday after he gets home from school and before he goes to his job as a stock boy at giant eagle.

You know... or something like that...

Ooh. Jeff says I can be the MILF soccer mom, provided I don't screw any 17 year old boys. Score.

Really, I should start going to the gym with the MILF soccer mom accross the street from me.

When I saw that ER episode last week, it gave me IDEAS on how to finish my book, ace my classes, and still be Superwife. Damn, I need to be jacked up and turbocharged!
[User Picture]From: chrismaverick Date: November 19th, 2003 - 09:35 am (Link)
yeah... and you too can have a heart attack at age 30! yay!
[User Picture]From: citgirl Date: November 19th, 2003 - 09:44 am (Link)
Heh. People who get heart attacks get to have time to relax, right?

But seriously, I think there is so much fucking pressure to do and be everything to everyone that this will not be a shocking storyline. I had a friend in highschool who went off to MIT and she ended up in the cardiac CPU her junior year (1996).

Damn I'm a geek. I meant ICU, not CPU

hehehe... you know what you should hook up with my friend cuddlyd00m he think geek girls are hot and umm... oh... uh... never mind...
