A repository for institutional knowledge about (presumably) fictional internet personality ELLEN BARSHEVSKY
Dad is a real winner. I cannot conceive of having to live under his tutelage for all of these years; no wonder Ellen is so subservient. He touts his intelligence by monitoring her tuchus remotely and handles all matters financial for her. What in the world is going happen after Dad is gone? Is Ellen somehow to become financially astute and saavy enough to manage her own affairs? The father has evidently given her the condo, pays her bills, monitors her weight (remotely) and negotiates her job promotions for her. Surely she after all of these years ought to be able to do some of these things herself. After all, she is a lawyer. How did she get through college and law school? Perhaps in part on her looks, but that couldn't have gotten her past the bar exam. I think Ellen ought to start handling more of her own affairs now, so that she can lessen and eventually eliminate her dependence on Dad. Mom sounds well adjusted enough; she was able to land and keep Dad. Ellen should be saavy enough to do this without having to find some schlub to marry her.
Couldn't have said it better myself, even if I stayed serius for an entire paragraph. You know these were precisely the sentiments expressed in POLL #3, where a plurality of readers urged Ellen to gain financial and caloric independence from her Dad: http://ellenwatch.blogspot.com/2013/04/results-of-poll-3.html
Even I agree. I think dad would warm up to me because of my background and the fine lineage that the Kutza family would bring to his line were we to "merge". I say no old crusty dude is going to prevent the right guy from heading right for home plate and scoring. I just want to be the first one to slide in. Ellenwatch, why in the blazes won't you assist in my efforts to score with Ellen?
