Another Book Report

So there’s a new book out called He’s Just Not That Into You by Greg Behrendt and Liz Tuccillo, and it’s a dating advice book. I read The Rules when it came out, notice I said “read”, not “committed to memory”, “bought” or even “left the bookstore with”. Let me defend The Rules as a great way to manipulate yourself into a marriage with a fellow who’s not smart enough to see through you. Anyway, He’s Just Not That Into You follows the question-and-answer formula for a relationship advice book (have I actually read enough relationship advice books to spot a formula?). In each chapter, women send in their cliched problems, author Liz commiserates, and author Greg gives his tough-love answer. It goes kind of like this:

“I went out with this boy but he didn’t call again/made me pick up the check/didn’t kiss me goodnight/took off during dinner/actually has a girlfriend/wanted to have sex/didn’t want to have sex/changed his number. What’s going on?”


“I slept with the boy but he says he can’t be together because he’s really busy at work/really busy at school/can’t leave his wife right now/is in rehab/has trust issues/is still wounded from his divorce/marriage/parents. What’s going on?”

And the answer is always:

“Because he doesn’t like you.”

This book is brilliant and I wish I’d thought of it first.

    Chocolate fountains reuses the chocolate that is put into it until it is all eaten, so be for sure your guest are not sticking their hands in the chocolate. Chocolate is pumped up the inside of the fountains and flows steadily over the tiers, creating a beautiful chocolate stream for everyone to love. Many chocolate fountain rental companies should follow all of the environmental health regulations, however it is still best to ask to see certificates of hygiene. The selection at the top of just about all dessert lists for upscale parties is the chocolate fountain with an assortment of items to dip in it. The place where you buy your chocolate fountain should also have the items or make recommendations for the foods that will be dipped in the chocolate.
