You're so Beautiful-and other stuff we're supposed to say

It is a fairly common practice among women that if someone is your friend you should compliment her beauty.  After all, women are beautiful, and when we have a best friend, we should say she is very gorgeous, to her face, many, many times.

Particularly if she is having a bad day.

Samantha Brick might be having a bad day today.  

If you don't know who she is, you're not alone.  Samantha Brick was an otherwise little -known blogger (sorry, writer) a few days ago until she decided to start talking about how hard it is to be so beautiful.  I had to do a double-take looking at the picture.  

It wasn't until I read the full article that I realized that this woman is not only a fox, but a genius!    Keep in mind, as you read this, that this woman is from England and the beginning of this article is perfectly normal to read in the Queen's English (although I believe the Queen may be prettier):

 “Throughout my adult life," Brick begins her Daily Mail article, "I’ve regularly had bottles of bubbly or wine sent to my restaurant table by men I don’t know. Once, a well-dressed chap bought my train ticket when I was standing behind him in the queue, while there was another occasion when a charming gentleman paid my fare as I stepped out of a cab in Paris.

 

“Another time, as I was walking through London’s Portobello Road market, I was tapped on the shoulder and presented with a beautiful bunch of flowers. Even bar tenders frequently shoo my credit card away when I try to settle my bill.

“And whenever I’ve asked what I’ve done to deserve such treatment, the donors of these gifts have always said the same thing: my pleasing appearance and pretty smile made their day.”

Okay, Ladies... right when you think this woman is crazy, may I submit to you that she found her way into a twitter-bated 15 minutes of fame?  For the last two days, in response to her delusional self-love, Samantha Brick has nearly JAMMED twitter with responses.  Social media, like facebook, has had to stop all accounts that are being started with the name of Samantha Brick, just to protect this beauty from spam beyond the galaxy.

 Okay, I have writer's block, and I admit if I didn't, I wouldn't be here laughing my butt off and making fun of this poor, pathetic, English beast.  But it's too stinkin easy and the words are flowing so freely.  If you think that's a riot, enter your twitter account and see all of the flap about her.  

"Guess what? Went into Starbucks and said my name is Smantha Brick...and I still had to pay!"

Genius.

Her husband, a devout hunter and frenchman, is the only charecter in this story funnier than she is.  His name:  Pascal Rubinatin.  It makes me think that Pascal’s  newest wager is the concept that since the existence of beauty cannot be proved or disproved through reason, and there is much to be gained from wagering that his wife’s beauty exists and little to be gained from wagering that his wife’s beauty doesn’t exist, a rational person should simply wager that his wife is beautiful and live accordingly.

 While this woman is a best friend to someone, I can guarentee you that if it were me,  I would encourage her about her "winning  personality" or her rapier wit...and never how pretty she is.  She'd know I was lying.

I wish someone would pay my mortgage because of my "pleasing" personality, wit and intelligence. LOL.
She has no idea how hard it is to be as supra inteeligent as I be.
Even worse is when you are the smartest AND the most beautiful in the room. It's like nobody understands at all. NOBODY!!!
Do you remember Broadcast News? The high-dress party scene where Holly Hunter is rebuffed with the comment, "must be nice to know that you are the only intelligent person in the room." Her reply, "...no! it's awful!" HAHAA.
She's kinda cute, but Pascal whatchamacallit is a beast with a beer belly. What's up with that. Nice spin on our screwed up values. R
I can see where she'd get compliments, being a tall blonde female myself, but I'm not sure about the gifts and all that. People don't hand those out just because you're pretty. There is usually a big, fat rope attached.
I have flowers and candy delivered to my door daily...shows up on my credit card. But heck... I'm worth it!
When it comes to beauty, time is never on your side, particularly for women... wit and charm open doors when beauty wanes.
I'm all for self-esteem. But a little modesty is a nice buffer.
She's got that oily dolphin forehead thing going on, like Meg Whitman. They're intelligent--but could they make the National Honor Society?
Erika~ The mortgage payments! The odd bottles of champagne sent to me! Being upgraded to First Class!! Parting the Red Sea! Oh, make it stop!!!

DH~ Deep fiction this week! Well done... and she does say she is intelligent, too. Not since the dawning of facebook have servers been jammed this much!

Oryoki~ I understand, sister!! Let's go into the ladies room and you, me and Samantha can commiserate with each other while all the ladies back at our table talk about us!

Songbird~ONE OF MY FAVORITE SCENES!!! I love it!! You've totally distracted me from Samantha! Now that's a beautiful thing!

Gerald~ You're right about Pascal...what an incredible manly man, complete with the gut. At least he can understand his wife's beauty!

Phyllis45~ Now you have the discernment to go with your beauty. My best friend in HS was a tall blonde, and she was stunning and VERY intelligent. She thought she was ugly... I think Brick's self-esteem can go a looooooong way among more worthy recipients!

Ande~ Flowers for ME??!! What a shock...who are they from?? ME!! AGAIN!!! I love it!! You made my day - it was that winning smile of yours, too!

jmac~ that's why all my best friends are writers. We have a way of knowing that when the bloom falls off of the rose we can still have the hips that nourish... rose hips, that is.

jlsathre~ agreed. But hey, she works for the Daily Mail and two rarities there are modesty and reality!!

Con~ Such truth!! The dolphin has a way with people, though. May I send that dolphin a case of champagne, please?
Brazen,What is this..;.She is actually writing in a newsρaρer,describing her beauty...And she is ρaid for this...;Ι want to meet her emρoyers..Oh,we are all so stuρid try to work or find a work..But in a sense she is to be admired...Ιn a ρeculiar sense..She is not bad looking..but it is new to me all this...But I quess the self-loving..and the 'Oh,I am so ρretty" mentality goes for all the knowns and famous..Never liked Hilton..but she likes her self..What the heck..if we do not like our self..who is going too..I found it natural and logical...
The best and most smiling and "I want to do this also" came from Ande "I have flowers and candy delivered to my door daily...shows up on my credit card. But heck... I'm worth it!"..Excellent...
Liked reading..I am not sure that I could sρeak my mind..After all it is her self not mine...Interesting writing,Brazen,rated and thanks.
Great gifts, if they do exist at all, are to be cherished and not boasted about to one and all. I feel very sorry for this woman. She's gotten her fame but the cost will be so bitter.
Stahi Stahi~ I believe her employers are quite happy. Readership of the Daily Mail has plummeted and they have been forced to hire "writers" that demand less of a salary. Remember, this woman nearly tilted twitter, and as they say in journalism: "Even bad press is good press!"

Mary~ The only woman who has a right to write this article is YOU...and because you don't shows why we all love you!
Surely the original article has to be a trolling post? No one can be that clueless! On the other hand, I have lots of girlfriends, and have been a bridesmaid many times, so I must be ugly and no one has the guts to tell me the truth.
Bell~ I thought the same thing- this has to be fake!! BUT she writes for Britain's Daily Mail and she did say it and mean it... poor, deluded creature.
Sad...
And has a feeling of degrading all women, who may or not be as 'pretty' as she thinks 'she is'...
Mission~ My post is not as sad as the comments this woman has made...just lunacy! I guess the reason I found her so funny was because she said that women were jealous, petty and mean to her because of her beauty... Google and read the stuff - Better yet, watch the youtube.

It is this, is what it is: projection, projection, projection
of our own immense narcissism,
finally put out there--now we can rail & scream against it,
enraged, of course, by recognizing our own selves.

Pascal has this to say:

"People almost invariably arrive at their beliefs not on the basis of proof but on the basis of what they find attractive."
