What this gal needs is a good, hard ...

It's late ... I'm getting sleepy and I'm waiting until daughter gets home from work (it's a mom thing). I don't usually read The Dowd because I gave up brittle, worthless cotton candy years ago. But careless clicking on the NYTimes site brought up her column and one line popped out that made sense, in a strange and sad way.

I've never said this out loud before, but I can't stand Christmas.
Of course, she can't even own her own animosity. In typical uber liberal fashion, her stress is the fault of her mother and sister who love the holiday. And it's the fault of yuppies who buy too much.

Then Pan-dowdy gets to the heart of why other people are to blame for her wanting to target practice on the ornaments on her neighbors tree ...

I think of all the money I've spent on lavishing boyfriends with presents over the years, guys who are now living with other women who are enjoying my lovingly picked out presents which I'm no doubt still paying for in credit card interest charges.
Poor girl, she still doesn't get it about men ... or from them, either, as the case may be.

And what would her column be without a gratuitous political snark

So now, on top of all the stress related to having a president and vice president who scared us to death about terrorists to get re-elected
Naw, no terrorists here! All a made up fairy tale just to stampede the sheep.

Daniel Pearl and Nick Berg could not be reached for comment.

Yeah ... it's other people's fault .. her family, her ex-boyfriends, hell, even the President of the United States ... that Maurose is so sad and lonely.

That's the ticket.

Mars bar? Is that the elliptical conclusion of your title? "What this girl needs is a good, hard Mars bar?" I like to leave Mars bars in the freezer until they're like little ingots of some kind of delicious ore, so it's a natural conclusion on my part to assume that you meant she needs a good, hard Mars bar.

Because if it's anything else, I have positively no idea what you're talking about.

The whining over old boyfriends was so pathetic i almost felt sorry for her. Almost.
