class of 2007

Posted on 2007.09.01 at 08:38
purple, black and white, metalic, shirt dresses, gaudy jewelry, small jackets - these are hot this year - i know all about women's fashion! - for one thing, if a guy watches women's fashion, he knows how men will be dressing in a few years, cuz we get the blow-back hand-me-down fashion trends - except when you see things like man-like ankle pants

for another thing, it helps a guy identify the richer or more frivolous girls who are more likely to avoid dorks and go for one-night-stands.  AND - there are the girls who APPROXIMATE fashion in their own ways - the ones who do it good are the best - independent and fun.  the ones who do it bad tend to be desperate and dorky.

now - the subject of class - class is important to me.  things i consider classy:

- keeping promises or shutting up
- empathy
- subtlety
- irony - NOT sarcasm (unless it's playful and ironic)
- originality and creativity
- deference
- urbane self-effacement
- not gossiping unless there was a clear injustice
- honesty - NOT being disengenuous and asking questions - when you would rather all the attention be on you
- a generous spirit - NOT leaving your dog 12 million dollars
- respect - NOT turning you back or talking with your butt if you don't hear what you didn't want to hear
- facilitating group conversation
- self-respect and style
- a sense of humour
- a sophisticated understanding of the delicacies of people, ethics, politics, and right and wrong
- not muttering disapprovals under your breath when you don't do a damn civil thing to deal with them
- not spending your life trying to prove you're right or trying to trounce phantom siblings to gain phantom parental approval
- not ignoring people forever until they scream in your face and you think you get to judge them for that
- not watching someone spend all their time and money entertaining you and then blowing them off
- not labelling people as selfish simply because they know how to communicate and you don't
- forgiveness - not self-congratulation - i mean forgiveness and respect
- not attacking people behind their backs so you can scare sheep into following you
- and so forth - echetterrah!  echetterrah!

now - an interesting thing is that my definition of class is basically similar to the more rudimentary idea of NOT SINNING in religious codes

although i am not pro-religion, i am not keen on the whole idea of deliberately SINNING out of spite and rebellion against your religion or moral upbringing - and then hypocritically falling back into line when you're in church or with your family power structure - that's about the most unclassy thing to do - it betrays a cowering selfishness and a lack of personal integrity and wholeness - and it tends to fuck-over the poor - how you ever going to fathom subtlety, empathy or practicality when you're banging back and forth between black and white?

it seems a lot of people go to church to compensate this moral discrepancy - and up their class status a few notches - in they heeads

but that guy jesus was talking about being classy on the fricken streets - it's not too hard to figure out if you're honest and responsible with yourselves - it's the only way for "perpetual class revolution" (as jefferson imagined) to occur

instead - people who are classy on the streets are crucified - figure that one out and you are getting somewhere

religionists are jealous of the fricken DEAD - that's why zombie movies are popular (hypothesis) - because the dead come back and say "OK - you jealous of us?  you been fuckin with us?  well now it's payback time!" - and yet, apparenty they are even more jealous of the living, cuz if they could have their way, the whole world could go to purgatory right now in a handbasket and then everything would be morally correct.

ok - enough of that - anyone know a good place where i can create some free or cheap websites without having them set spyware in my computer???  i want at least one site where people can post videos...

I loved this post!

I would be classy in your books if my boyfriend didn't continuously inform me I have 'sarcasm issues'.

I can't stand girls who back stab. What is the point? If you don't like me, tell me so, or jsut don't be fake nice to me, and move on. I've obviously had an experience with this lately.

I also think included in that list should be 'only ever showing a little cleavage or a little leg - never both'.

I'm not a trend follower. I can't wait for all the girls wearing the big shift dresses now to look back on their photos in 10 years time & have their children ask 'Mummy were you pregnant with me then?'.

There are (according to a recent shop til you drop article) 3 styles of dress for women.

There are the Girls, the Women & the Ladies.

The girls are always on trend wearing whats-his-faces latest bubble mini shift in cobalt blue.

There are the women who are always dressed elegantly in simple colours & classic tyles & manage to find the balance between sexy & classy.

& there are the ladies, who are timeless. Their clothes will never date & they will invest in designer pieces that, to look at, you wouldn't even know are desinger - but to touch, feel, wear, & for how long they last - you would.

According to the supplied quiz, I was a woman. I am happy with that, & I agree with it.

I could talk bout fashion for about another 14 days but I won't!

Ps. I hate purple. I always will, always have.

ha ha ha - yu hate purple! - but it can be fun - i found - funky to mix with black and greens

i like your breakdown into the three categories - i think i'll hew to that - it seems right

yes - i hate women who back-stab - i also had an ongoing experience with that which was so weird i decided to turn it into a novel - but i haven't worked on it for a while

hey i got your email - i almost deleted it cuz i thought it was spam (ergh) - thanks!

I just hate purple. I think it has something to do with this real hippie-chick girl I once knew who I ended up really not liking.. once we were out & she bought a purple top & said it looked 'too new', so she threw it in the gutter & stood on it to make it look more 'her'.

wow - she was nuts!

i also didn't like purple for the same general reason - but then i bought a plum hiking shirt that was pretty cool and non-hippie, and that got me looking for matching sox, etc....

I think we can regard plum as a non-purple shade.

Same goes for magenta. Magenta is good.
