The Atlas Shrugged Woman

I read a great post from Morgan at Mancouch yesterday. He talks about how reading Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged has influenced his taste in women.

As a very outspoken and opinionated single woman in my 30's, I unfortunately must report that Morgan's opinions (while very welcome) seem to be more of the exception rather than the rule. Does a guy want a girlfriend who understands monetary policy and the Federal Reserve? Or, would he rather have the girl who knows all about the Kardashians?

I hope I don't sound bitter! That is not my intent. I have just never been one that enjoys small talk and pointless mind-numbing activity. The E! Channel is blocked on my cable (except for the Soup, I make that exception every Friday night), but Current TV is on my list of favorites.

I don't see how people can care about Lindsey Lohan or the cast of the Jersey Shore. It just makes no sense to me. But, if people want to occupy their time with that kind of thing...hey, it's a free country.

I will just spend my time a little differently. My copy of Atlas Shrugged is calling my name.
