This excerpt comes from Gone Girl which is currently a bestseller and movie rights have been sold and basically it's the It Girls of books right now. I've read the book. Didn't LOVE it but the suspense kept me glued and I really appreciated the twist. I'm not going away spoilers, all the reviewers mention this twist.

Like I said I wasn't enthralled by the story and definitely not the main characters -they are horrible peeps - but there is this one passage that really struck a chord with me. Amy, the girl part of Gone Girl, gives off a little rant about the cool girl. You know the type of girl most guys want and compare all other girls to. The kind of girls they put on a pedestal. The girls most of us cannot compete with in little boy's heads. And there's my rant ;)

"Men always say that as the defining compliment, don't they? She's a cool girl. Being the Cool Girl means I am a hot, brilliant, funny woman who adores football, poker, dirty jokes, and burping, who plays video games, drinks cheap beer, loves threesomes and anal sex, and jams hot dogs and hamburgers into her mouth like she's hosting the world's biggest culinary gang bang while somehow maintaining a size 2, because Cool Girls are above all hot. Hot and understanding. Cool Girls never get angry; they only smile in a chagrined, loving manner and let their men do whatever they want. Go ahead, shit on me, I don't mind, I'm the Cool Girl.
"Men actually think this girl exists. Maybe they're fooled because so many women are willing to pretend to be this girl. For a long time Cool Girl offended me. I used to see men – friends, co-workers, strangers – giddy over these awful pretender women, and I'd want to sit these men down and calmly say: You are not dating a woman, you are dating a woman who has watched too many movies written by socially awkward men who'd like to believe that this kind of woman exists and might kiss them."

And here is all I have to say on the subject:

Happy Friday Bitches!

Ex-Oh! Ex-Oh!

  1. Firstly congrats on your mindset regarding exercise, have just caught up reading your last few posts. Look forward to some pics of the fitter you early next year :) But remember, eating is at least 70% exercise 30%, if you're not eating right all the exercise you do won't make a difference. lemme know if you want me to email you some tips, which keep you eating well, and I am an advocate for fat, just not sugar.

    As for Gone Girl, guys are idiots and can't see through lots of women, unfortunately, then as soon as the ring is on the finger BAM! she changes and wants to change him and control him etc etc, schmucks! I loathe women who pretend to like stuff coz the guy likes it, hate fake bitches.



Whoop! There It Is!
