Kathy Shaidle Talks About Mark Steyn And His Sartorial Choices, Accent and General Social Graces

There are some other words and punctuation and stuff in the article apparently as well.

But seriously, folks....

This is a great piece!

While women have different plumbing than men, it is true that our interest can plummet almost as instantly for other reasons (imagined or reality-based). I can only think of truly disgusting terms for this, so I think I will keep them to myself for now.

I should note that in addition to my husband being very cute, he also wore nice shoes and a nice watch on our first date. Now, don't think this is about money, because he was driving a taxi at the time I met him-but that's a whole other chapter... And yes, I remember what he ordered and what I ordered.

By the way, I'm still annoyed with him about the shoes that he wore for our wedding and I still hate them even though he doesn't even have them anymore. But after almost 19 years, I only think about it when I go to therapy three times a week.


Make the best of what you have is a great rule of thumb for one's comportment.

And you don't have to have a lot of money to look good.

You need to be not fat, wear mostly solid colours, (preferably natural fibres), have excellent grooming (that means all hair issues on face, head and body, well kept teeth (helllooooooo British people-why do you hate dentists so much) and be able to make conversation with anyone from any background.

And absolutely, take things to a tailor when the off-the-rack stuff doesn't fit you "perfectly". Of course it doesn't fit you perfectly-it was made on a dummy with weird, screwed up measurements. Are you a screwed up dummy? Perhaps!
