My BF is the best.

Ellen November 28, 2010 at 8:53 am
My BF got me a pair of Jimmy Choo shoes for Xmas! Can you believe it? He is SOOOO good to me! He gave them to me early because he did not want for me to start wearing them once it snowed, but I told him that I wore boots outside and will ONLY bring these shoes with me to work and wear them INSIDE in the winter. My BF is the best. This is a great holiday. I don’t know what to get him. He is not a great dresser like I am.

Ugh. Anyone know how to clean up all this troll hair. EW! And droppings!

The best thing to do is just not respond to them. They eventually get bored and move on.

I am NOT a constitutenal SCHOLAR

Controversy...I will add that the assistance I've had in analyzing the input data on this post suggests it was not from the same source as others.

Ellen November 25, 2010 at 8:44 am
I am up early and just put the TURKEY in my oven to bake.
I am NOT a constitutenal SCHOLAR, but I DO appreciate my life as a JD in New York State. I am thankfully still happy, and the manageing partner is not treating me JUST like a sex OBJECT.
My Boyfriend, Alan is still asleep, but I hope he will stay on track to MARRY me, and he is still SEXY and does nice things for me, and I do NICE things for him.
So I wish all of you VERY best Thanksgivings, Corpolettes. We have alot to be thankful for.
Love, Ellen

Oh, it makes me sad that Ellen was so full of gratitude and then Eponine couldn’t pass up the opportunity to be an arrogant jerk for just one day. Ellen, my hubby is working out-of-town today and I am grateful that he has a job in this economy. Happy Thanksgiving!

Taylor its been well established that Ellen is not real the last couple days, its a he making fun of the website.

Thanks to everyone who advised me on bag choices for an internship interview. The interview went great and I got the position! So, thanks!

Congratulations Taylor, you just got punk’d :)
Taylor November 25, 2010 at 3:21 pm
I did, huh? Who cares? I still don’t get the point of correcting grammar on the Thanksgiving holiday.
Come now November 28, 2010 at 10:08 pm
Taylor, your descent into name-calling was unwarranted (“arrogant jerk”?) – overreaction much? You say you don’t get the point of correcting grammar over the thanksgiving holiday, but name-calling is all right by you then?
EG November 25, 2010 at 7:38 pm
Thanks, liked the link alot!

What would America be without alot? We do have to be thankful for the alot. And a laugh. Way to go, Eponine!
Samantha November 28, 2010 at 10:04 pm
That’s hilarious, Eponine! I enjoy Hyperbole and a half, but hadn’t seen this one.
Louise November 25, 2010 at 2:57 pm
Happy Thanksgiving to you, too, Ellen. May you and Alan have a good upcoming holiday season.
It seems that some of the regular commenters think that you are not a real person, but in the spirit of the season, I hope they will give you a chance. I’m guessing that English is not your first language; if that is true, can you share with us where you are from?

he can eventuelly get me a better gift,

Almost as if Ellen was trying to be a real person here, but still couldn't quite do it. At least 2 readers were fooled.

Ellen November 23, 2010 at 9:24 pm
I have a question. My BF wants to buy us a package of 6 courtside tickets for the Knicks for Christmas, but I really don’t really care that much about basketball. I go to the games b/c he likes to but really, I could care less about watching the game. How can I tell him not to spend this money on the tickets; I would prefer he not buy me anything then waste the money on these tickets; he is temping and not making much money, but he thinks that he needs to impress me. I really don’t care. How can I tell him this without embarasing him. I have a good job and am making money, but he is not making much money. If he saves money, he can eventuelly get me a better gift, mabye next year. Any ideas would be apreaciated.
Anonymous November 23, 2010 at 10:02 pm
This is a tough one. I have solved a similar problem in the past – when my husband wanted to get me an expensive gift I really didn’t want – by taking the approach of “hey honey, let’s just keep it simple this year.” It helps if there’s a mutual goal you can create that you want to save money for, like a trip or something for the household. One year, my husband wanted to get me a new laptop, which I didn’t want or need – I suggested that we do a simpler Christmas so we could save money for a trip to Europe we were planning. Actually, since then we have tried to keep Christmas simple – we spend less than $100 on each other – and put the money towards something we both want to get. You can try that, and see if it works. Otherwise you may have to try the more direct approach – which, trust me, is way better than him finding out at the game or afterwards that you didn’t care about getting the tickets, especially if buying them will be a stretch for him.
Ellen November 23, 2010 at 10:09 pm
Thank you. I appreciate your view and will try it.
Louise November 24, 2010 at 1:53 pm
Is it possible that he really wants the tickets, and is helping to justify the expense by making it a “let’s go together/date night” thing? If so, you could encourage him to buy the tickets for himself and/or one of his close sports enthusiast friends. Be honest with him that you aren’t really interested, while also letting him know that it is perfectly fine for him to go with a friend. Then suggest something else that you can both enjoy together, like a commitment to have a date night with dinner and a movie every Thursday.
This sends the message that you appreciate his offer, you really do want to spend time with him, but that he shouldn’t feel obligated to take you to the games just because they are expensive.
I would shy away from making any judgments about where he should spend his money for his own entertainment. That often backfires, especially with someone who is a big fan of a sport or other hobby. If he loves basketball, he’ll probably make it a priority to go to games even when money is tight. We all make decisions like that. For some of us, we’re never too poor for new shoes :-)

This is just my opinion, but I have a JD.

Ellen November 23, 2010 at 9:15 pm
This is touchy in this job market. Unless you can be sure you will not be prejeudiced by telling him this, and can get “market”, I would sit tight and take what you get.
The economy stinks right now, and there are SO many peeple out of work, I would not chance it. You do not want to risk loosing your job for $5 to 10 thousand dollars, even though that is alot of money.
You could silently put your feelers out to see if you can get the extra $10 thousand. If you can, go get it. Otherwise, don’t look a gift in the mouth.
This is just my opinion, but I have a JD.

a suit that eccentuates my bodice.

This is very uncharacteristic, in my experience--she rarely engages any other comment directly, and even more rarely has she become confrontational at all. Thoughts?

Also, I think this is the only instance when KAT has weighed in, if only by acronym.

Ellen November 23, 2010 at 8:20 pm
I ALWAYS like to wear a suit that eccentuates my bodice. I have worked VERY hard to keep my midriff as slim as possible, b/c I NEVER eat fatty foods after 6:00 pm. Instead, I go to the gym where the trainer thinks I have a great body. I personally think I am 5 lbs overweight, and all the excess is in the seat.
If I could ONLY find a suit that can hide my tush, I would be VERY happy.
If anyone has any ideas, I will be VERY GRATFUL.
Thanks in advance. And happy turkey to all. Remember not to eat the skin and limit the dark meat if you want to stay svelte like me.
Wth November 23, 2010 at 8:33 pm
I’ll bite. I just don’t understand what you get out of it. You’ve been here for weeks now under different names, all with mildly misogynic posts but always obvious that you’re not a “corporette” No one is even that mad at you, so its not like your one of those people that feeds off all negative energy. What are you hoping to accomplish here?
Anon... November 23, 2010 at 8:36 pm
Ha. Couldn’t have said it better myself.
Ellen November 23, 2010 at 8:45 pm
I work with some men that OBJECTIFY me all day, and just want to have women friends. I have alot to offer but the men do not always treat me as an equal. I have a JD so I do NOT know why men do not treat me equally, because I have the same eduacation as they do. I am pussled that some women are so jealous of me. I am just like others here, and I am a corpralette. Fooey on those peeople that do not like me. I have to find somewhere where I can be respected.
Wth November 23, 2010 at 8:55 pm
Ah well there is the problem! You got an eduacation while they got an education. See corporette therapy is working already. Although I am pussled as well as to why you keep coming back.
Anon... November 23, 2010 at 9:06 pm
Is there some sort of language barrier here that we’re missing perhaps? If not, these sort of posts are starting to get ridiculous.
Ellen November 23, 2010 at 9:10 pm
Fooey on you two. Women are always BASHING me b/c I am pretty, but I really try not to care to much, b/c I have a JD and my parents help me out so I can live well in NYC. Why are you so catty with me?

Its’ so gratefying to know that I at least have you guys as my friends.
Wth November 23, 2010 at 9:19 pm
haha last time I’ll respond I promise. But no one has even bashed you. you’re so desperate for us to be like “omg how can you talk like this we are women rooooarr feminism rosie the riveter men are evil” But the only thing people have said are its just the weirdest trolling in the world. Fooey on me for responding though.
Anon... November 23, 2010 at 9:22 pm
FOOOEY! Ok I’m done.
2L NYC November 23, 2010 at 10:36 pm
Actually, this is much more hilarious than the one crazy commenter all by herself! The BEST part is the completely WEIRD caps that don’t make any sense at all. (Making me smile while outlining…)
anon November 23, 2010 at 11:20 pm
Because we are not “corpralettes” like you?
Ellen November 24, 2010 at 7:54 am
You are probabley just jealous of me because I look JUST like Gweneth Paltrow. But I am very used to this. Women love to BASH me because I am honest and friendly. And I have a JD, so I am confident in MYSELF.
Ru November 24, 2010 at 11:04 am
Because I love Ellen and her hilarious ways, I’m going to have to say how on earth would we know that you look like Gwyneth Paltrow? Really? I mean seriously, how is possible that we would know what you look like? And I think lots of the women here have JD’s, so really, you’re not so special here. Sorry…….

Possibly Ellen likes to perpetuate the use of CAPS and FOOEY!!
Louise November 24, 2010 at 1:40 pm
I think I will use FOOEY! any time I don’t agree with another poster’s opinion from now on.
