Old Lady Stanton: Ruining Everyone's Fun 2005

From now on this blog is strictly about select historical figures playing that game where you build a structure out of blocks and then you remove the blocks one by one and if you remove the block that causes the structure to tumble, you lose. I forget what it's called. Terrific fun.

10:02 Alexander the Great just lost.

10:35 Elizabeth Cady Stanton just lost.

10:48 Shaka Zulu just lost.

Snack break - lemon bars and macaroons

11:14 Field Marshall Rommel just lost.

11:30 Samuel de Champlain just lost.

11:51 John Dee just lost.

12:08 Tony Randall just lost.

12:22 Elizabeth Cady Stanton lost (again).

12:55 Elizabeth Cady Stanton lost (again).

Ok, great. Elizabeth Cady Stanton just threw several blocks into the toilet and waddled out of the house in a huff. What a poor sport! I expected this sort of behavior from de Champlain, but Stanton? Christ.

Poor Sport: E.C. Stanton

Old "Jenga Bitch" Stanton -- that's what we called her at Yale.

Hmph. I would have thought John Dee knows better than to play this game he will lose. Had he consulted the spirit guides or his crystal ball, he would have spent the time schmoozing it up at the snack table, instead.

What do you suppose my Elizabeth Cady Stanton one-dollar coins are worth by now? Surely more than those common old Anthonys.

hey, when you gotta deal with a manta ray suctioned to your scalp, then you can blame the stodgy suffrager. Til then, "suffragers will be suffragers," I say.
