My friend from college just sent this to her 1000+ Facebook Friends
I have redacted the names.
And yes, she is a Millenial.
"Today starts my birthday month and as many of you know, it is challenging for me to receive from people.
"My facebook friend (I met him in San Francisco during ..., ****** does what's called Pamper ******* Month as a practice of receiving so that he in return can give as much as he does...
"With the inspiration I have received from ****** work, and as a way to help me to disintegrate my challenges with isolation, I am going to open up this month as a Pamper ******* Month. This gives me the opportunity to accept love and kindness, and allows all of you to practice showing love to someone you care about. What I want for my birthday is to feel an open and loving connection with each of you by receiving gestures of love and pampering.
Ways in which you could share your love with me are:
If you are in a city I will be traveling to: picnic/lunch/dinner date, massages, hugs, go to the movies, take me shopping, provide transportation of any sort, provide a place to stay while I'm in your town, throw me a party with your friends, throw a Mary Kay party at your house and with your friends (This would be entertaining to you too), money, anything on the out of town list below.
If you are not in a city I will be traveling to: gift certificates of any kind (Lowe's, national grocery stores, online shopping, Groupon, etc); airline miles; hotel points; money; transport me to your city (then any above are available. This would be unique because some listed above might have to be included in order for this to be possible) and return me to where I need to be; a car; kind words; encouraging letters; any business assistance/advice; advice of any kind; anything else you can think of that is from the heart; and allows me to feel the love you have for me.
I look forward to all the great loving pampering this month and to practice receiving so that I may give more. Feel free to pass this along to anyone you know. As ******* says. "After all, the more pampering crammed into my life, the more pampering I can share onward! It all just works out so well."
Send me a message if you'd like to participate. If you want to send money or gift cards, you can send it to:
Paypal/gift cards: ****************
If you want to actually send me something, contact me and we'll figure out what city is the best for you to send it to and I'll get an address for you.
I love you all and look forward to receiving gestures of your love this month.
Oh god, this cannot be real!
This is incredible, and perfect for DL, OP.
I would love to hear more about this woman, and for you to post some of the highlights of the responses/comments (from people either kissing her ass or calling her out on this shit).
This has to be a joke. It HAS to be. I simply cannot believe that somebody like actually exists.
[quote]it is challenging for me to receive from people.

Receive what? Gifts?
So John does a Pamper John Month when it's his birthday? And now your friend wants to do this for hers?
Is she the low-rent Gimme Paltrow?
[quote]So John does a Pamper John Month when it's his birthday? And now your friend wants to do this for hers?
Send that cunt a fucking bag of Pampers diapers. Sounds like she needs them.
If I wasn't so damn broke, I'd do the Hobbity thing: instead of receiving presents for your birthday, you give presents to other people.
Is she a thin, blonde, white woman with blue eyes?
OP you have to call her out and post the results here, on DL. Please, please, please, I can't tolerate the thought of this self absorbed bitch being blissfully unaware of how obnoxious she truly is.
R9 OMG, YES!!!!!!!!!
Sounds like daddy's little princess is mentally ill.
I will pamper her by crashing my virile car into hers and making love to her scarred body.
Can you provide her address here for some of us who would like to join the many other friends that will be pampering her ???
That useless cunt will find some idiot to marry her and pop out 5 kids - every last one dumber than she is and just as entitled.
This sounds like Bee!!!
Millenials on meth: not pretty
[quote]... as a way to help me to disintegrate my challenges with isolation ...
I've heard it called a lot of things....
On her list of what she'd like to receive is "advice of any kind" -- that's what I'd send her, OP -- word it however you like.
Is it just me, or is the term "birthday month" showing up more and more? I had never heard of it, and then in the last year I see my friends mention on FB, see it on pinterest, and elsewhere on the internet.
I swear, adults are becoming more like kids every damn day.
I once told my boyfriend that I wanted to celebrate the eight days of Joshika leading up to my birthday. He laughed but he actually brought me little gifts for the seven days before, including a scented candle (it is, after all, the festival of light), chocolate, a silly pin for my backpack, and other inexpensive trinkets. I got a great gift on the actual day.
OMG Today is the first day of Joshika. YAY me.
My birthday month is Aries, March 21-April 19. I don't think of it as my birthday month as much as the beginning of spring, which is the thing I'm really celebrating, as I hate winter.
I also have friends whose birthdays are in Aries, and we have had parties over the years, so it has felt, at times, like my "birthday month."
I have an "official" birthday that I celebrate with my friends in August. Because we're all together partying anyway so I figured, "why not?" No gifts or anything - I just love seeing everyone.
[quote]No gifts or anything - I just love seeing everyone.
I would think (or at least hope) most people have that attitude. We are adults after all. Birthdays are no longer what they were when we children. We should be beyond the point of longing for presents and instead be happy with the company of good friends.
Fucking kids. That generation will never grow up.
I don't see the problem.
What have people left for comments? I mean, honestly, what the fuck is wrong with people??
Millennials CAN be scary. They require cold discipline.
[quote] If you want to actually send me something, contact me and we'll figure out what city is the best for you to send it to and I'll get an address for you.
Can you send a kick in the cunt through the mail?
"Fucking kids. That generation will never grow up"
As opposed to old people who sit around watching Fox News and think gays and minorities are ruining America....I'll take the younger generation, thanks. Old people really hate us and love blaming us for their problems.
Update us please OP! I'm dying to know what the reaction on Facebook is.
Except for the Mary Kay, this could be my evil stepmother, Nan. I gave my Dad a cruise for his 75th and the bitch took a look at the price of the cruise in the booklet, and decided she'd rather have a long weekend in NYC. When I told her I wasn't paying the book price, she said she'd settle for a thousand bucks.
In your wicked stepmother's defense, who wants to go on a cruise these days r33?
I'm with r30. I'd like to help her practice receiving repeated punches to the throat and head region. Where is the best place and time for us to get together to arrange that? Anyone?
Just what I need a month's worth of bric a brac I don't need or my sisters trying to buy me clothes to get me away from Brooks Brothers look.
Nothing really to report on the Facebook page... ie no one has called her out on it...
...So far, 18 people have "accepted", 2 are "maybe" and 1,213 are keeping their mouths shut.
"...throw a Mary Kay party at your house and with your friends..."
Does this "Millenial" also wear White Shoulders perfume and listen to Perry Como, OP?
I Call Bullshit
That is absolutely nauseating and disgusting, OP.
Damn. This shakes me because I believe the children are out future, and no one taught this one well (or too well).
What does she DO? Does she have a job? Does she live with her parents? Can she dress herself?
Sounds like she doesn't have much of a problem with receiving OR asking.
(Though I will admit, I designated the first week of June my "birthday week" and let my friends know I am available to be taken out for drinks, dinner or the theater).
Miserable trail of catsick.
Condition Red, Defcon 1.
A cunt this massive is apt to suck all of reality into itself and nullify all existence outside its own massive black stubble-fringed hole.
Is your friend's name Eric Turner by any chance? Oh no wait, couldn't be--Eric Turner has 20,000 Facebook friends!
Unfortunately, I'm forced to share my Birthday Month with Jesus H. Christ.
Is the bracelet the present you like the most?
Then that is the one present you may keep!
Miss Joan Crawford, film legend
have a party and invite her to be the first to bob for French fries. The nerve of some people!
*Someone* should *anonymously* alert Gawker about this cunt. She needs to be put on blast à la Eric Turner.
This girl sounds like she'd make an excellent cult leader. Maybe she can replace Philip Berg at the Kabbalah center.
Please, PLEASE follow up on this and tell us more about her and what happens on her FB.
And what, I ask you, R43, is wrong with Eric Turner?
OP, I am begging you to post her FB or Twitter here.
OP - has she recently been in a lot of weddings? She sounds like someone who has spent a shitload of money on friends weddings and finally lost her mind.
[quote]*Someone* should *anonymously* alert Gawker about this cunt.
R51, then she'll learn that she's being laughed at & prevent access. That's what happened with the blogs for the Bee/Bear wedding, the Six In The City family, & the Muse of some singer/musician whose name I can't remember.
I hope OP doesn't spoil the fun & just continues to post redacted excerpts while his "friend" disintegrates her challenges with isolation.
Facebook is scary. It really is.
[quote]And what, I ask you, [R43], is wrong with Eric Turner?
R54, you have a point..
I was livid when some do-gooder lesbian asshole from DL emailed the Muse. That was the best thread in ages. It actually got me through a really shitty Christmas and New Years..
My birthday is in January and couldn't be happier about it. Everyone's too burnt out from Xmas to pay attention. I've felt this way since I was about 19. Over-celebrating a bday is beyond tacky. Having a month long celebration is grounds for social execution.
I actually removed my birthday from Facebook so I don't even have to say, "Thank you for all the birthday wishes!" I'd rather the day go completely unnoticed.
I treat myself for a week at birthday time but I'm not so tacky as to ask the same of others.
Thanks r56. Can someone please direct me to Eric and Morne's gofuckyourself page?
What a greedy little bitch she is!
Give her the benefit of the doubt. The appropriate response is "LOL."
It's a good thing OP withheld all names because all involved deserve to be located and exterminated, pronto.
R61 I think their gofuckyourself page went underground (password protected) after their story went viral & they were shamed into hiding (same as what needs to happen with this FB bitch). Here's Eric's thread:
I think this young lady is quite...entrepreneurial.
Seriously, though: if this was your friend, sister, niece, whatever: could you tell how obnoxious she is? If she's sincerely deluded, then she's still...deluded. Better to do what most apparently doing and ignore her or be honest, tell her the truth, hurt her feelings now but spare her from further humiliating herself like this again?
And is it any worse than me putting this much thought into a DL post?
Facebook is a sickness.
This is my new favorite thread ever. I know two bitches just like this (one a man and one woman). "It's all about me. My needs and wishes will always supersede yours. It's your duty to support me financially and with all of your time/resources."
They're BOTH very new age/metaphysical.
Must be a joke.
I'm curious about all the traveling she does or wants to do. She reads like she's a prostitute, in every sense of the word.
And that part about not being good at accepting gifts, I take this to mean that one can expect her to generally be ungrateful and unappreciative.
Wow, very sad!
I think she's suicidal.
Every time I see something like this, I thank God that Facebook/Twitter was not around when I was in my youth. Oy! Such an angsty, navel-gazing time where people can delude themselves into thinking that the world wants to help them with that angst.
I also smell helicopter parents somewhere in this story.
Nobody can be that deluded, (can they?) to think that the world revolves around their need to, uh, disintegrate their challenge with isolation, etc.
But I think this "Pamper Me" poster is part of this depressing new wave of entitled, deluded people who genuinely seem to think that they are owed an excessive amount of attention/effort/gifts/money, etc. all in the name of showing them how much you care about them. (Part of the "See what a great thing this would be for you to do this for me?!" school of thought. "It would be the ultimate mark of compassion/support from my friends if they could raise enough money to send Grandma and Grandpa to Paris for my wedding!")
At least Tom Sawyer knew he was manipulating his friends to paint fences so he wouldn't have to do the work. But this poster has swallowed her own Kool Aid and seems to believe that she is owed this month of pampering as part of her journey into 'learning how to receive'.
What she really needs is a clue on how not to alienate people with her deluded sense of entitlement
"I have just sent you a visualization of Pampering. Hope you received it. Please understand if what arrives is a box of infant diapers; the Universe, Goddess bless, is easily confused. Namaste."
Please clue us in; who are the Muse, six in the city, etc.? Where can we read about them? These are my favorite kind of thread.
Is she fat? I bet she's fat.
[quote](Though I will admit, I designated the first week of June my "birthday week" and let my friends know I am available to be taken out for drinks, dinner or the theater).
Sorry r40 - I'm sure you have other good qualities, but yuck. Asking for presents (which is essentially what you are doing) is always greedy & gross, no matter how cutesy you try to make it. It's not cute when spoiled children do it and it's mortifying when adults do it. Choose dignity.
I do not understand adults who have a need to make a big deal out of their birthday.
You know this simply needs to be sent to Gawker, don't you OP?
[quote]and let my friends know I am available to be taken out for drinks, dinner or the theater
Oh good lord.
I hope they respond with "Oh, gee, yeah, that sounds great! Though, I'm not sure I have the time. I'll let you know. Oh yeah, Happy birthday!
She's already done the damage of posting this to 1,000+ people. What harm would it be to now send it to Gawker? Christ, man up!
[quote]If you are not in a city I will be traveling to: gift certificates of any kind (Lowe's, national grocery stores, online shopping, Groupon, etc);
I subscribe to Groupon's email list and this week they're advertising Groupons to Etiquette School.
Tempting, isn't it?
[quote]as many of you know, it is challenging for me to receive from people.
Her parents must be so proud that she's overcoming that challenge so well.
I'm also a late December birth, and when I was a kid it felt like everyone was celebrating along with me, because of all the decorations everywhere (I'm not Christian but I love Christmas decorations) and parties and general holiday spirit. I still kind of feel like that and enjoy having my birthday during the holidays, but I'd never actually demand a month of gifts, or demand gifts at all.
bitch is dellusional
OP, you need to take some screen captures and post them online. Or send an anonymous tip to Gawker. This needs to go viral!
This bitch is soon going to find out that Facebook "friends" are not really friends.
Does the Clueless One also, in turn, gift the 1000+ Friends on HER list? If so, must be a terrible expense when Daddy gets the credit card bills. We've got to think up some sort of award for her. Any ideas?
"(I'm not Christian but I love Christmas decorations)"
LOL I fucking love Datalounge. Group think at it's finest.
R88 Even been to European countries that have a majority of atheists during christmas holidays? Everything is stuffed with christmans decoration. No one gives a shit about your group think attitude that forbids them to have a nice family holiday with pagan evergreen/trees, shiny ornaments, non-christian Santa on the day that people celebrated various holidays thousands of years before christianity was even invented.
You don't get it, R87--she cannot give until she receives! She read it in 'The Secret' or some shit.
ITA @ R78, I dont get it either. So self indulgent and embarrassing. Makes you look immature and low class to get all excited about birthday gifts like a kid waiting all year for Santa. Anyone who is self supporting can buy things for themselves anytime they want.
I cringe when people give me gifts. I never get anything I would choose for myself, so it's just awkward. I also have greater means than anyone in my family of circle of friends. I want to say, no gifts PLEASE. But there doesn't seem to be a nice way to do that.
[quote]I want to say, no gifts PLEASE. But there doesn't seem to be a nice way to do that.
How about "No gifts, please".
Works for me.
She reminds me of a friend age 40 whose mother died halfway across the country, and the friend sent out these large-distribution-list emails for the entire year that followed, saying in effect,
"I am the kind of person who has SUCH difficulty asking for what I want/need, so here is another LONG list of things I want you to do for me."
I was like, really sorry your Mom died last year but I'm an acquaintance, not a close friend, and you're 40 years old. So, no, I am not going to clean your bathroom or buy you groceries or take you out to dinner or cater to you and wipe your ass, seven months after she died.
As much as I would love seeing this on Gawker, if you know this person, you would realize that she would LOVE nothing more for this to go viral. So I'm not going to push it.
Here's a screen capture for the doubter in our group.
She honestly thinks she's a queen. How old is she? 30+ and unmarried and with no boyfriend?
I also want to know if she pays little to no attention to how she dresses or presents herself. Does she dress in really bad clothes or "express her special personality" by wearing really gross things? How does she style her hair? I'm trying to get a sense of her personality to see if this is some new epidemic.
She needs a swift punch in the cunt.
1000+ friends? Narcissism.
Never happened. Has too many of the hallmarks of what makes DL outraged at obnoxious hipsters and self involved 20-somethings.
OP, try harder next time.
OP, I didn't say I doubted that *someone* had posted this. I was "calling bullshit" on the age. Mary Kay? I don't know anyone under the age of 40 who even knows what that is. Is she southern or something?
Anyway, you posted the evidence, so...
I have a "friend" like this who is 47, has no kids and is into new age stuff. She hasn't worked a full-time job in 3 years because "the universe will provide" for her. Ick.
How many freaking cities does she travel to?
I am sure that most of her 1000+ friends are not real friends and are thinking, "Jesus, why did I friend her?"
I am glad she thought of others when she points out that the Mary Kay party would be entertaining to you as well.
Cunt Punt immediately!
[quote]Give her the benefit of the doubt. The appropriate response is "LOL."
That's actually a really great idea. The OP should respond something like, "LOL! OMG, that's hilarious!" and then see how she responds.
WTF is wrong with people and their birthdays? I don't expect or want anything on mine other than a phone call from my Mom, and for my BF to take me out for a nice, though inexpensive, Italian dinner.
Perhaps my expectations are too low.
Atheists can't like fairy lights or eggnog or it will be the end of civilisation!!
This is such a fake. My god, OP. Read a book or something.
If I had to spent more than 5 minutes with this bitch her "gift" would be a broken neck.
Her account could have been hacked.
Mine was on e, and somebody posted something like "please show me how much you like me by liking this post", something needy like that. I was appaled when I found it, which was not immediately, as I don't use the account much. Ugh.
That's a pretty long post for a hacker to write.
OP, you said she was a friend from college. Did she exhibit any of these signs of narcissism and total cluelessness about how she comes across? It would be hard to believe that she didn't seem a little off to you at that time if she's willing to post this embarrassing demand for "pampering."
When did it turn into birthday "week" and birthday "month"? And that's a holiday all of one's friends are supposed to observe every year?
I'm lucky to get any acknowledgment at all on the day.
I also don't understand how so many of my poor friends travel so much and just have weeks and weeks where they aren't on the job.
R117 She was not like this in college, but that was before Facebook/ Twitter when everyone started feeling like it was ok to post everything that was going on inside their heads.
Her reality is not challenged by the possibility of her being a troll moll. She is a transcendent goddess of our times, trying to find her way through the challengingness of her receiving and setting her boundaries for the masses to acceptably pay obeisance.
Thrilling. I want her to receive my pump heel SO BAD.
1000+ friends have received this? When is it going viral? There is absolutely no way this wouldn't go viral within hours of hitting the web. 1000+ Facebook friends is hardly some private, obscure group. At least one of them must be appalled yet distanced enough that they would anonymously post it somewhere else for noteriety and public humiliation.
OP why haven't you sent this to gawker yet??? If not you then surely one of the 999+ others will send it in. When it goes viral, be sure to post a link here so we can all see it first hand and read the comments.
Sounds more like a Michfest rant than a Millenial rant. Although, is there really a difference between Michfesters and Millenials, at this point?
[quote]At least one of them must be appalled yet distanced enough that they would anonymously post it somewhere else for noteriety and public humiliation.
Isn't that what OP has done?
He obscured the name and didn't include her profile pic, R123. Frankly that screen grab OP posted looks very fake. Doesn't look like any Facebook page I've ever seen and there is just way too much redacted info.
If an unaltered screen shot were sent to Gawker, they would obscure all the legally protected info before posting it. That thing OP posted is an indecipherable mess and proves nothing.
Sorry, this fails the smell test.
[quote]Doesn't look like any Facebook page I've ever seen
What an awkward way to admit you've never been invited to an event.
r124 NAILED it. OP is a fraud. Thread closed.
She sounds awesome!
If she ever dupes anyone into marrying her, god help anyone who doesn't give her a gift worth more than the cost of the meal.
STOP responding on this thread. It is closed and OP has been exposed as a fraud and a liar. If you continue to post you will be subject to banning.
Who the hell are you, R129? If it's closed, we wouldn't be able to post at all.
[quote]I'm also a late December birth, and when I was a kid it felt like everyone was celebrating along with me, because of all the decorations everywhere
I know someone born on July 4 who's always felt the same way.
And I know 2 people born on Halloween who've always felt vaguely uncomfortable about their birthdays.
It's a Facebook EVENT page.
[quote]That's a pretty long post for a hacker to write.
It's probably that Ramsey woman, posting ransom notes from the beyond.
[quote]STOP responding on this thread. It is closed and OP has been exposed as a fraud and a liar. If you continue to post you will be subject to banning.
Translation: THREAD CLOSED!
I think that it is very possible that whoever posted this originally (the female)found this thread, and is now begging for the thread to be closed.
It is a heavily edited Facebook EVENT page.
r137 - Why would the OP edit out the FB menu bar, which would give it much more credibility?
Anyone can create a private Facebook event page, write whatever they want, not invite anyone, take a screen capture, severely crop it in any of dozens of standard, free photo applications to obscure the lack of any invited guests, and upload it to image shack to make their fake troll post look half legit (emphasis on "half").
DO IT, r82!! DO IT!!
R121/R124/R140, how do you manage to type so much with your little hands on your hips?
I think OP just confessed. It was a good one though, even if the Mary Kay party detail was extra.
This matter has been settled. OP is a fraud. Thread is closed.
Why is everyone freaking out over this? It seems like people are taking this very personally.
I think it's real. If it's not real, the OP is a great creative writer and knows how to release massive amounts of cortisol in internet viewers.
Skipped over this in the opening post cuz it was all one big paragraph jumble:
[quote]transport me to your city...and return me to where I need to be; a car; kind words;
Wait, you mean I gotta spring for a ROUND-TRIP ticket? What a cunt!
R146 I think I offended someone who celebrates a birthday month.
[quote]Why is everyone freaking out over this?
The only ones freaking out are you and the idiot OP. As someone said earlier, this doesn't pass the smell test.
Out of 1000+ friends, someone would have sent this to gawker by now. It would have gone viral by now. We all know stuff this bad doesn't stay secret for long these days, especially with "1,000+ friends". So right there it's suspect.
No one under 70 uses Mary Kay (OP must be pretty old). That's just bizarre. She'd want Sephora gift certificates or something similar.
The screen capture at R94 is ridiculously fake. R140 nailed that. Very easy to fake that.
Oh, I think I know what's going on and why R149 et al. are obsessed with saying that this isn't real, "or it would be on Gawker."
You're Rich Juzwiak, aren't you? You lifted the Eric Turner item from here and now you're desperate to put this in your column as well!
[quote]When did it turn into birthday "week" and birthday "month"? And that's a holiday all of one's friends are supposed to observe every year? I'm lucky to get any acknowledgment at all on the day.
I worked with a cunt whose birthday was April 30 and started going on about her birthday month at the beginning of April. Insufferable. Thank god she left to have a baby.
[quote]I also don't understand how so many of my poor friends travel so much and just have weeks and weeks where they aren't on the job.
Credit cards? That's how I do it.
OP is not freaking out

Dumbfuck at R153. I am an observer, not the OP. I don't care if it's real or fake, but there is someone here who is obsessed with proving it a fake and closing the thread. It's weird.
This is DL, I don't take anything serious here, it's all fun - who cares if it's real or not. The guy with the tiger tail bets was a fake OP too, but it was hilarious.
Please send her ricin.
*tiger tail BEARD not bets
[quote]Your ridiculously amateurish attempt to create a "classic Datalounge thread" has been torn apart

This is real.
Am I supposed to post the link to the Facebook page, or am I not supposed to do that because of problems it caused with the Muse and the Bear/the Bee, etc.?
Anyway, to all the doubters, I can verify that this is real, I'm looking at it with my own eyes right now.
OP here, at R158 I removed the image and am reposting it below because the above image had my hometown on it and if she were to see this she would probably know it was me who posted it here. Here it is again.
R159 don't post the link! I want to see if more people call her out on it.
Is her name Dr. Bridget Hilliard?
Wait, is the comment "This is against my morals", greeted by the woman who posted with "Haha. How are you nathan?" How oblivious is she?
I think the person who keeps insisting the thread be closed is the person who sent out the e-mail and somehow found out about this thread.
R159 how did you find the page?
OP, I think after a bit, you should post the actual page here, or at least send it to Gawker. Make sure you have a screen shot WITHOUT the black marks, they will blur or black it out appropriately.
It's not connected to you in any way, and she sent this to over FOURTEEN HUNDRED people.. It could be anyone..
[quote]And yes, she is a Millenial.
Millenials are the reason gays are getting rights. Get lost, pops.
r166 - How did you figure that out?
R165 I see no benefit in posting her real name or linking to the page. There is a distinction between creating a page like this that is meant to be viewed only by people in a network, and creating a website like Eric Turner or Dr. Bridget Hilliard (the exquisite affair!) that can be readily viewed by the whole world. If she had done this in an open accessible forum like a blog or kickstarter page my opinion might be different, but so far it's been limited to Facebook so I'm just going to leave it there.
Translation: I made this whole thing up.
Give it up R169, you're way too invested in this.
Dear cunt at R166, the fact that you are too uneducated (as well as mistaken in your assertion) to correct the poster that the correct spelling is "millennial" shows you to be not only lazy but ill-equipped to snark.
There is no "pops" in this, you little weasel.
It doesn't matter if this is real or not. It reflects an underlying truth about two generations (and counting) that is amply evidenced by the slightest contact with them. And for heaven's sake don't expect exposure to make a difference. They are so utterly, self-absorbedly clueless they would rather die than face themselves as they are.
OP is doing the right thing by not revealing her identity.
I found the invite. When you read about the person, it doesn't seem as bad. I was expecting some grossly overweight, entitled, smug cube dweller but instead it's a person in the arts who probably lives at or below poverty level. So while the invite is shocking, I was surprised by the fact that when put in context, it doesn't seem as offensive or entitled. But I don't know the person and could be completely off-track.
[quote]I found the invite.
Sure ya did, Blanche..
Ok, sorry R174 I found it too.
One need only type: Pamper Birthday Month into the Facebook search box, and it pops up, with her name..
And I disagree with R174 - I think she looks like an entitled "trying too hard to be hop and edgy" twat.
*hip and edgy
[quote]One need only type: Pamper Birthday Month into the Facebook search box, and it pops up, with her name..
It sure did! Wow, she's bonkers.
PS: She needs to get rid of those stupid, fucking, red hipster glasses.
I found the facebook event page from the guy that this woman got the idea from. He invited 2400 people.
Heyyyy now, r178. I had those glasses in 1986.
I like the glasses.
Go through her profile pics. She's a fucking attention whore.
And of course she is one of those self-appointed "Founder/President/CEO" people on her Facebook profile.
What the hell is up with this. Unless your tumblr has a governing board you aren't a fucking CEO.
"Such a wonderful idea! Thank you for having the courage to offer us opportunities to tap into our imagination, kindness and best loving self."
Not only that, r183, but she's been a CEO for ten years!
And here's her FB page. After 10 secs of perusing it, I conclude that she'd be thrilled if the Pampers Plan went viral. No doubt she'd claim the birthday month is an artistic exercise.
I say, leave it alone and let it die. Attention will only make it grow.
Aren't the naysayers going to apologize to the OP for accusing him of making this up?
I hate Nikki.
I'm so confused by how much support Nikki gets from her enablers. It almost feels like they're just humoring her. They can't all be so enthusiastic about this behavior.
how old is she?
Most DLers either believed the OP or gave the OP credit for 1) having great creativity if he made her up and 2) being a longtime DLer, not a troll.
There was just one psychotic jackass at R149 and elsewhere who thought if she/he typed "thread closed" enough times, she/he would win and the OP would be embarrassed.
The rest of us thought that jackass was pathetic.
So, no apology from me, but a thanks to the OP. This was very funny. I'd punch & delete her on FB, but maybe the entertainment factor is too high. Did you go to a performing arts college with her?
(I have an aunt who, well into her late 50s, put relatives on the shit list for the year if they forgot to send a birthday card. I believe she still does that, but for obvious reasons, I haven't been in touch in many years.)
Oh, and W&W for R74. I laughed, I cried. Well, I laughed.
I think OP is the event page maker (NW initials). She wants press for her "tour" She WANTS this to go viral. We've all been fooled.
R198, she's 30.
R200, fine arts, not performing.
She pulled something like this a few years ago when she launched a kickstarter page to basically fund a globe-trotting lifestyle. The Facebook updates were APPALLING. And yes, she has her enablers and I don't know wtf is in it for them. A good friend would tell her how foolish she is making herself look.
She's 30? Does anyone else thinks he's just going to crack one of these days? She's way too old not to know better.
r204 - Not necessarily. She's coasted 12 years as an adult without really growing up. That's a pretty good run. So long as she has benefactors, she'll keep on cruising and maybe she'll even catch 15 mins or so of microfame.
That's why this shouldn't go to Gawker.
well, now she's wearing a little crown in her box.
1. Thread is hilarious. 2. There should've been more responses to r166, that's bullshit and a slap in the face of so many who have sacrificed, who have had courage, and worked diligently on our behalf.
When I click the link to the event page now, it says zero invited and with only one person going, Nicky herself. What's up with that? Did she disinvite everyone?
it looks like she created a couple different event pages, here is the one with the invites.
Responder: "I can provide business advice, hugs, massages and/or chi healing or acupressure and we can go to the movies or on a picnic, too, but strictly platonic."
Nicky: "I leave Long Island tomorrow and am booked while I'm here. Business advice is welcomed, please do not be offended if I do not take it."
OP, you're friend is a narcissistic asshole. Why even add that last part? She could've kept it on a positive note. Does she get off on this whole, 'I'm the queen', thing?
SHE IS LITERALLY WEARING A CROWN. RIGHT NOW.
Her Wishlist is staggering!
She wants someone to provide the plexiglass for her stupid headbox, and someone to volunteer to actually build it for her.
Her "team" includes a vegan chef (natch) and a blogging specialist.
[quote] it is challenging for me to receive from people.
Crisco, honey. Lots and lots of crisco.
I'm surprised SHE hasn't sent it to Gawker. She's an attention whore trying to raise money for her "art"
Whoever "Paddy" is, thanks for taking my DL post and sending it directly to her. Funny stuff!
A "blogging specialist" r216? Is that another word for unemployed?
All she needs is a near death experience. I would be glad to give her one.
R220, that would be me! I loved what you wrote at R74, and I couldn't pass up the chance to post it. None of you other fuckers had the balls to do anything! ;)
[quote]I want to say thank you to everyone who has been so kind this month. My birthday was amazing and I have been practicing receiving and though I am still uncomfortable with it, I feel like I have made progress. All of your kind words have been inspirational and I have felt truly loved deep inside. Thank you.
I'm so very uncomfortable with receiving, tee hee. Maybe we should practice by you giving me a $100 Amazon giftcard...I'm sure that will help.
Oh, good lord.
[quote]I'm planning my next location after Ohio. I really want to go somewhere with warm weather in which I could stay for a couple months to catch up on writing, finalize/launch my kickstarter campaign, and rest and heal (candida is back . ) before going back on the road. Would anyone like to host me for this reason or know anyone who would? If so, send me a message and we can discuss a suitable exchange.
[quote]I want to make a note to this.... People have been hosting me for years. This is how I am able to continue to be a full time ARTIST at the times that I am a full time artist. The people who have hosted me are not hosting me because I am a woman, they are hosting me because they are a fan of my work and want to give me the opportunity to continue to focus on it full time. Men and woman have hosted me. I've been hosted short term by more people than I can count, and longer term or during official performances 5 times. At the time of the host situations, I have only been romantically involved with one of my short term hosts and zero of the longer term hosts. One of the long term hosts is Rich and of course we dated for four years before he hosted me. We were not romantic during the hosting situation. If you contact me or allude that hosting me means anything other than allowing me to have a place to live and work out of, I will absolutely be offended.
Bitch needs grow the fuck up, pull her head from her ass well in this case from a box and add to society. This hippie shit is pathetic. You don't feel connected, well fuckin talk to people bitch.
OMG, I'm so embarrassed for her and ever more for her family. They must be mortified.
I'd send her a laxative. ASAP, too, because she's about to burst. In fact, I'd urge all 1,000 of her "friends" to do likewise.
On another level, this is rather chilling. It reminds me of some future world where everyone thinks and feels and expresses themselves like that.
[quote]"With the inspiration I have received from ****** work
I don't understand what this sentence means. from Travis work?
What part of redacted did you fail to understand?
No redacted name you fill in would make the sentence make sense.
It's probably "breath work".
Now she's asking people to send her money so she can go to Art Basel in Miami.
You realize that OP was probably the lady in the link and was doing this to get more viewers. She's a fame whore and doesn't really care what people think...
Psychotics can make money too.
She just announced that she needs more money to get to Miami so anyone who is interested should message her, and she will give them her checking account number so they can deposits funds in her account.
