“haha love how you girls talk about us and take the piss out of us boys on your web page...” – Neemia Tialata
That was the comment galaxyMafia found on the sexandthesushi Bebo page Friday night.
Initially, when galaxyMafia opened the email, she was a bit confused. The message said:
eat deezzzzzzz......! ntialata has added a comment to your profile.
The last time Mr. Tialata left a comment, the message was as follows:
Batman is back!!! .
Mr. Tialata’s Bebo name, as she had always known it (for the short time I’ve been lurking on Bebo, that it) was “Batman is back!!!” and galaxyMafia was familiar with his “Batman” identity. . .which she will do a post on for those of you who want to know why he was referring to himself as the Dark Knight. . .Mr. Tialata apparently now refers to himself as “Eat deezzzzzzz…..!”, for some reason. Perhaps galaxyMafia will ask him, perhaps not?
Anyhoo, initially, galaxyMafia thought the message from Mr. Tialata was “eat deezzzzzzz…..!”. That is to say, she assumed (incorrectly as it would turn out) that Mr. Tialata had responded to her with this juvenile, sophomoric, unoriginal and uninspired insult.
To wit, however, she was excited. She was thinking Mr. Tialata had truly gone there, telling her to, in effect, eat his nuts! Oh, she was getting ready for him. She had so many insults of her own lined up. It would be a character assignation to end all character assignations. She imagined a sad day in the All Blacks hotel Internet café when the boys discovered Ney in the corner in a fetal position after having read what galaxyMafia had written.
She planned to begin her missive as such. . .
“You flatulent, feculent, gelatinous fuck!! How dare you. . .”
Well, you guys get the picture. GM was gonna take Tialata’s ass to school. However, she calmed down a bit, called Glamour Diva, and discovered Tialata hadn’t insulted the Sushi Girls after all.
Quite the contrary, he loves us.
Hmmmm. . .
So, why is galaxyMafia not more excited? Isn’t this what she wanted? Adoration and respect from the rugby player who would be her baby daddy if not for a few inconsequential things like 5000 miles? Didn’t she want Tialata to see her blog and think it was funny? Didn’t she want him to be the kind of guy who could laugh at himself and understand satire?
Yes, to all of the above.
And yet, his message was a bit anticlimactic. First of all, it was tediously vague. He could have explained more, could have told us exactly what he liked, and which posts he’d read, etc.
Initially, Glamour Diva and I concluded he was just being a man, and men, as you know, don’t leave paragraphs of explanatory prose. But, then I remembered we’d received email from Jed “Jedi” Thian and the guys at the Rugby Fobcast and they all left great messages that were more than one sentence. . .
Although, technically, Tialata's comment may not be a sentence because the subject is missing.
“. . .love how you girls talk about us. . .” Who loves how we talk? Are we to assume it’s Neemia? How do we know someone else wasn’t “borrowing” his Bebo page to chat with friends or look at pictures that night? Yes, GM is reaching. . .
Anyway, once again, GM feels as though she is being ungrateful. After all, Neemia is communicating. He may not be saying anything interesting and exciting but, at least his grammar and usage is better than The Nonu’s and he figured out we’re girls so thank goodness for small favors, right?
That said, I left another comment inviting him and the boys to listen to our podcast. Who knows if he will, and if he does, who knows if he’ll comment. . .?
GalaxyMafia finds she is, unfortunately. . .still ambivalent!
