Kitten Days

This summer? Soooo an extension of my Kitten Days. So when she says 30's the limit? BAH! Fie! I say Fie!

Check out the post for yourselves...


  • I already commented on the original post, but I figured I'd add my opinion to your blog as well.

    "The whole point of being a kitten is to be adored, exalted, pursued, a little bit objectified and CELEBRATED, goddammit, by the male species."

    I thought that this was the point of being a woman, not just during the kitten years. As a man, I would enjoy feeling this way about a woman. Never mind her age.

  • i thought the post was dumb to the point of being 'pull my string'-ish. if your only value is being adored by men, and the only proof of said adoration is having drinks bought for you (i'm paraphrasing), there is more wrong with you (not YOU, the grander *you* per se) than falling past the 'best before' date on your breasts.

    that being said, everyone enjoys a few years when it is fun to be adored and noticed and have their cigarettes lit for them. i'm not sure those moments, however, need to be objectified and mourned.

    but that's just my take on life.

  • mostly, my friend composed a somewhat satirical piece on the objectification of women of a certain age, and how she took advantage of it. she's in her mid-thirties and that hasn't slowed her down any. and I have a feeling her age will continue to not inhibit her.

    just b/c some of us have passed from the realm of early womanhood into a more advanced stage doesn't mean we can't wax nostalgic; or does it? regardless, I'm not gonna let the pretense of the newly-minted librarian-esque attitude I'm supposed to embrace now that I'm in my thirties and a mother keep me from laughing about what I used to be like. I'm not going to shelve it, either. It's a part of me, even though it's a part I won't revisit except in memory.

    I'm not ashamed that I was a brazen hussy at one point. and no matter how many people try to tell me I should, I still won't do it.

    you can't make me.

  • Mmm..hmm -I also enjoy periodic extensions of the kitten years. Very tasty indeed.

    Christine, maybe you didn't understand me completely - I do lack communication skills at times, especially after a few cocktails. A kitten's only value is not just being adored by men and having drinks bought for her - her "value" is in the fact that WHILE THAT ACTION IS HAPPENING the kitten is thinking "Sweet, how did I do that? And how do I do it again!" You don't even have to try.

    It is kind of like getting a new car and wanting to drive it around to see how it feels and watch how people react to it....immature, yes, but I think I touched on that in my follow up comment.

    My "mourning", if you want to call it that, was in the fact that those days were fleeting and I don't think I did them justice - I could have - SHOULD HAVE - gotten in a lot more dig? Youth really IS wasted on the young, I guess...

    I, for one, would like more detials on this summer's events!

  • Kittens scratch, bite and pee on the floor. I in no way ever would want to return to that!
