i am not a stuffed tiger.

goodnight moon

It's time for bed, so I'm listening to NPR on the internet. I tend to favor All Things Considered for my bedtime tranquilizer. Now I find that my nighttime ritual will help my mating potential:

NPR is part of the mating ritual. For both the male and the female, listening to NPR sends a signal to a prospective mate: “Despite my current income, in a few years I will have a house in a neighborhood with good public schools, and I will drive a Volvo stationwagon.” [ask]

the sad thing ( is it sad?) is that it is so true.
since when do you care about good public schools? you don't like children.
just because I'm not interested in children doesn't mean that I want to live in a nation of stupid adults.
i'm not saying you want to live in a nation of stupid adults, i'm saying: why would you be concerned about moving to a neighborhood with good public schools? you have said on multiple occassions that you don't want to have children, so i don't understand why that would factor into your real estate decisions.

so there.
Are you arguing that neighborhoods with good public schools are otherwise undesirable? This might be true, now that I think about it. Even if I have kids, I'd want to ship them off to boarding school anyway.


I should probably ask if you read the link before going on and on about this. It
doesn't really factor into my life at all. It is just a funny link.

In any case, the point is that NPR listening is a signifier of the sort of person who cares (or appears to care) about good public schools, etc. Even if it is only to score a mate.
