Too Much Time On My Hands

Not much to do except read and sleep.

I found myself watching an old clip of Ellen de Generis roasting BIC pens for their sexist product. i wondered if the pens were real, and if the company had really gone ahead with it.  They did. I found it on amazon, and the reviews were hilarious.  I just had to join the fun

So I did.  And my first Amazon review was born!

2.0 out of 5 stars Embarrassed, September 15, 2013

This review is from: BIC For Her Fashion Retractable Ball Pen, Medium Point, 1.0 mm, Assorted-Fashion Ink, 2 Count (FHAP21-ASST) (Office Product)

I am so embarrassed. I am a man, or rather I WAS. Now I don’t know what I am. I was out doing my manly work one day when I needed a pen to jot something down. Mine had run out of manly ink. A woman of my acquaintance offered me her own pen and I accepted gratefully without examining it closely, as you do. Well the next day I suffered terrible menstrual cramps, and had an overwhelming urge to redecorate my manly bedroom with flouncy duvet covers and lacy pillowslips. Worst of all, I went through my entire wardrobe and could not find a single thing to wear. ALL my jeans make my ass look fat!

I hate you BIC for what you have done to me!


About Uisce úr

Though I am old with wandering Through hollow lands and hilly lands, I will find out where she has gone, And kiss her lips and take her hands; And walk among long dappled grass, And pluck till time and times are done, The silver apples of the moon, The golden apples of the sun.
