CPJL: Has Never Before Been Called "Pedantic," but Kind Of Likes It.

Hi Internet!

The Cleveland Park Junior League-

The smart girls: When you get to know them, you like them, but before that it's "that girl" in senior AP English who is actually the smartest person in class, but she knows it, and keeps bringing up points that NO ONE was interested in and then keeps talking and usually arguing with the teacher.

I really, really wanted to like these chicks (Lady Jane, the Duchess and the Governess) are smart and quite witty ("the shit that comes out of her mouth"). They are positioning themselves to be a sort of answer to the CPMC, which fine, but there answer appears to be more whiney than clever. Their actual postings are fine, a little pedantic, but hey, it's DC. However, every time I read their blog comments they post on their other sites, I puke a little in my mouth.

I like them just throwin those brass balls onto the table and challenging the gents, but alas, they are coming out swinging, but with no real purpose. The whole thing (sadly) stinks of smug and so I can merely wait and hope that the banter becomes a lot less smart people trying really hard to impress other smart people. Oh, and they drink, too, but I need more from these little tarts.

1. I shouldn't allow comments on this because I fear LJG getting all red-pen-ish with her bad self. So contain yourself, Miss Lady Jane Grammar Police. Nobody likes the smart girl, at least not up-front when you're all loud about it. Right? Right. Right!

2. I wrote notes and then folded them into football-shapes during my AP English classes, lo those many years ago, & therefore never said a word. But hey, SHOUT OUT to teacher Mary-Patricia Amibraghili, and her mad love of all things The Sound and the Fury. Prom committee props and shit.

3. I drink, but I don't drink and tell. Smug? That's kind of true. I can work with smug. Blogs with PURPOSE? Novel idea. We lack purpose. Absolutely. Agreed. Check and check.

4. I promise to never comment on another blog again. I dislike being responsible for other's well-being, especially someone I don't know. (Sidenote: It's why I only own an undemanding beta fish.)
