Reach for that rainbow, sweetie.

Girl: You know, I really hope I meet a rich guy, 'cause I can't wait to be financially independent!

Isn't "Marrying Rich 020" part of the women's studies program?

These types of girls make me chuckle. Not so much because of their aspirations - they're entitled to a life goal of marrying wealthy if they so desire.

No, I chuckle because, in my experience at least, the girls who make these comments are typically hopeless when it comes to performing their lifestyle's absolutely necessary and most basic task: being able to recognize their quarry when he's right there in front of them. Hearing girls lament how hard it is to find a rich guy - when they are at that very moment speaking to somebody with an 8 digit bank account - yeah, the ironing of it is delicious. "Oblivious" hardly even begins to describe them.

Not that I'm complaining at all. I'm actually very grateful that these ladies are so upfront with me about their future marriage aspirations... it serves as a wondeful screening tool and has allowed me to quickly identify and mark those people who are almost too shallow for words. (And who are definately too shallow for marriage.)

So yeah, keep on doing what you're doing, MRS majors. For my own financial well-being, I hope you never catch on to the fact that the smart people with money aren't the ones flaunting it obviously. (Read to mean: "flaunting it to attract you.") Believe it or not, sometimes (or all the time, if I'm at school) the people you're searching for ride the bus and look indistinguishable from the lumpen proletarian masses. But of course you wouldn't know that... riding the bus is beneath someone who occupies your station in life. ;)

To the ladies who haven't yet grasped this elementary truth (or who dismiss the chances of a friend with whom they've discussed their MRS major plans as actually turning out to be wealthy - sometimes the only 'friend' they'd never actually consider fucking themselves), all I can say is that I wish you the best in life.

Given your track record to date, I think it's safe to say that you and your prospective husband (that Beemer-driving, plasma screen television owning, middle-manager) will truly deserve one another.

I will make millions of dollars when I come up with a device that allows you to punch people in the face over the internet. Beware 9:49.

Defensive MRS majors unite!

I'm on your side dude. Not because I have money but because it's true.

dear drew:

it appears as though this is not the first time someone has called you a turd burgler... if blog posts are as similar to grade two romance as i think they are, i think someone has a crush on you... ;)

Why do some people insist on taking these quotes seriously? These quotes could just be a joke. If she did mean it seriously, then just let the stupid remain stupid.

9:49 is a little too full of himself. Just because you're rich and you ride the bus doesn't make you humble, because you so very obviously are not.

Given his choice of terminology (proletarian masses?), I think he's a Communist.
