Being beautiful

May 9, 2007 at 8:01 am (brain, ego)

Batman says beautiful people are cool. He likes them and lists his faves here. But what I want to know is what, exactly, is beauty? How do you define it? Is it a physical/ mental/ emotional thing or a combination of it all?
I remember seeing one of the most beautiful men I’ve ever laid eyes on (in the flesh and on screen) at varsity. Yet the minute he opened his mouth his handsome looks were instantly diminished. Not only was he superficial, he was the most vacuous thing ever.
Now, don’t get me wrong, I’m as much for eye-candy as the next girl, but if a guy doesn’t really know the difference between Descartes and Dakar he won’t ring my bell at all.

Some other no-no’s in men (apart from being related to a bag of hammers):
– Dirty hands and bitten nails (vomit-inducing stuff, this)
– Referring to women as chicks
– Talking to my chest as if my face was situated there
– Thinking he’s smarter than me and being dumb enough to believe it’s true (ha!)
– Sandals and socks together (c’mon, seriously, what were you thinking?!)
– Not reading or watching films
– Not willing to kill any flying, crawling or creeping insect that crosses my path (not negotiable – you just gotta do it)
– Freaking out at having to do shopping which includes buying “girl stuff” (you know what I’m talking about)
– Treating any woman badly or without respect
– Wearing a wig, plucking his eyebrows or shaving his legs (that’s why we have GBFs)

    I work with a woman ,with the most amazing bo, and looks, but with the IQ of a tapeworm. Every guy that meets her for the first time, drools wo meet her. Give her two minutes and you actually feel sorry for her husband. Dof is not the word!
    What’s worse she is a real blond!
