Overheard in LA

Table full of high-maintenance West Side bitches at La Salsa. You know the type; immaculately done up, thin, heavily made up, beautiful, carefully done hair, perpetually sour expression on their joyless faces due to spending all their time at the gym or shopping, rather than enjoying any of life's non-materialistic pleasures. One says to the other; "Dating sucks. The other night I went on a date, and the guy I'm out with asks me "What do you think of exisistentialism?" What a loser. Like I've cared about that since freshmen philosophy. Hello?"

She was right about one thing - dating her would suck.

Man, if my date asked me a question like that, I'd be all "Score!"

All I saw was "The other night I went on a date, and the guy I'm out with asks me "What do you think of exisistentialism?" What a loser. Like I've cared about that since freshmen philosophy. Hello?"

And I was confused

Yeah, I forgot to tell you. My inner West Side bitch tranny broke out.

If a date asked me that, I'd probably think he was a pretentious schmuck. Sartre and Camus were both pretentious fucks.

So, you have an opinion? ;)

On the upside, she remembered the word "exisistentialism", and when she heard it last. Good for her.

That was my first thought and I was mildly impressed that she had.

beautiful... perpetually sour expression on their joyless faces

personally, i find those two things to be mutually exclusive. beauty is as much about carriage and happiness as it is about facial features, which means by definition that i would not have found those women beautiful. >;)

Beautiful like a china doll. Aesthetically pleasing, but off-putting as human beings. There's lots of different kinds of beautiful, after all - even the high-maintenance, fussy, Republican kind.

Particularly, apparently, at La Salsa and livejournal.

I have to agree with Sally and company on this. (And yes, I do have an opinion on existentialism.)

Having worked for a cosmetic surgeon on the West Side, I know that species to which you refer quite well. That type of creature is best served by sticking with their own kind. (Someone for everyone, you know?) But surely the poor guy she went out with had to know what he was dealing with? And if so, why ask a question like that unless he was trying to level the playing field by showing off his intellect? Which is a very good way to end up NOT having sex that night.

But do you see how wise you are in comparison to her date? You already know that you have nothing in common with her or her kind.

How sad is it that someone who mentions philosophy MUST necessarily be just a pretentious prick, instead of someone who, say - recently read Camus and wanted to discuss it? And even more sad that so many of you have bought into that notion.

The disease is far more widespread than I thought.

I know the type, but where is the beauty in there?

I'm glad for the guy actually. Dating a person with such a disregard for the importance of existentialism would indeed suck.

Ok, taking the beauty question back. Reading comments first, then commenting, Mo. Must remember basic rules of LJ.

A totally fair response.

I'm probably gonna piss off every woman on your friends list with this... but honesty will out.

I wouldn't date a woman like that, but I'd bend her over the coffee-table in a heartbeat.

(I was gonna say "but I'd fuck her" but I didn't want to make your comments page NSFW.)
