Amanda Bast is Canadian. but i heart her anyway. she has a blog you should read and a Twitter you should follow. the girl has a well developed, if not slightly bent, sense of humor. which is why i heart her of course. we did a blog swap, so i’ve got a post over at her place. i think. she may decided she hates me and never wants to to hear from ever again after reading it. it’s called “something most people think is dumb but sharideth thinks is awesome”. it’s based on a series she does on her blog. i wrote it about Canada.
i’m a terrible person. i’ll post a link if she puts it up. i’m not very hopeful.
without further ado. here’s MandieMarie.
A Girl Should Never Make a Guy…
…watch West Side Story in its entirety. Two and a half hours of dance fighting is too much dance fighting
for the average guy. Make him watch “Cool” and the one scene in the pop shop where the guy who
looks like Joey Tribbiani goes off on a heated rant and calls people cats, but that’s it. Singing in the Rain?
Totally different story. Everyone needs to see that movie at least once in their life.
…feel like less of a man. I was at a show at a pub where the female singer/songwriter thanked the male
singer/songwriter for singing back up. “His voice is way higher than most chicks I know.” Those were her
words. On stage. In front of an audience. I was mortified for him and should have punched her in the
ovaries. Dudes want to feel big, strong and manly. Don’t call him little or cute (even if he is little and
cute. Grab a thesaurus and find some synonyms). Let him kill a spider for you. Let him start a campfire
for you. Let him carry your suitcase for you. Ladies, I know you’re fully capable of doing these things
yourself, but if a guy is offering, let him help. It’s a man thing.
…buy her pads or tampons. No. This is not ok. I don’t care how long you’ve been together, never is
this the solution to your sanitary napkin needs. “But it came as a surprise and I wasn’t prepared!” I’m
sorry ladies, but this is not a valid excuse. The only way I’ll accept you being surprised by something
that happens on a monthly basis is if you’re in that movie about going on a bunch of dates with Adam
…answer a question that she already knows the answer to just so she can hear him say the answer and
get mad at him. It was your fault for asking your guy if he thinks Katy Perry is hot. I can’t help you in this
…look like an idiot in front of his buddies. Confession: I overheard some guy friends quoting Super
Troopers (naturally, one of my favourite movies). First dude says something about snozzberries. Second
dude starts meowing. Third dude starts in on the shenanigans bit. I’m giggling until I realize that third
dude is my gentleman friend and HE HASN’T SEEN THE MOVIE. I ran into the room and called him on his
second-hand quote in front of all the guys. I almost immediately smacked myself for being the girl who
makes her guy look like an idiot in front of other guys. I later apologized profusely (not in front of the
guys) and all was hunky dory. But now I’ve blogged about it so I don’t know if it counts anymore. Ladies,
learn from my mistakes.
Your turn to finish the thought. A girl should never make a guy…
