A few of the idiotic things men do...

HE'S JUST NOT READY TO COMMIT Let's begin with one of men and frogdom's all-time idiotic offenses.You give him the pleasure of your company (plus untold hours of prep time) and in return he's not willing to commit to anything. Mention a romantic getaway, a steady and exclusive dating policy, a long-term relationship, marriage and he runs for the exits! WHAT VOUS NEED TO DO: The best defense is a good offense, which means that you must never give up trying to make him commit. Remember: Never stop being offensive.
HE'S STATUS OBSESSED — It's all about the label, the fancy car, the platinum-encrusted watch, the vacation place in Gstaad, the showy perks. WHAT VOUS NEED TO DO: Give moi his number.
HE'S A NARCISSIST - This guy can usually be found at the gym defining his triceps, biceps, bicuspids, you name it. And when he's not pumping iron, he's primping in front of the mirror-tweezing, conditioning, moisturizing and otherwise invading your personal grooming space. WHAT VOUS NEED TO DO: Ask yourself if he's such a hunk that he's worth it. If so, get more mirrors. If not, dump him but get more mirrors anyway. After all, narcissism isn't a bad thing if it's about vous.

    Miss Piggy's Fine Instruction

    I laughed my way through this book! Miss Piggy has much to tell us about what men say, but really mean, perfecting the fine art of flirting and the types of dating. She is very instructive in enumerating questions a girl might ask before going out with a guy or deciding to marry. Interspersed with advice on cosmetic surgery and beauty tips, the finest "diva" of them all gives us words to live by.

    Miss Piggy A True Diva

    A Review by James Mendes

    I purchased this book for my husband James who is a Miss Piggy fan.
    he had the book read in 3 days, and found it ti be well written, true,
    informative, useful, and entertaining. He had a great time reading such a great book. James said Miss Piggy is A True Diva, and she has such a great outlook on life.

    James wishes to thank Barnes & Noble for carrying such a great book.
    He has actually started to read it a second time, and just can't put the book down. Thank you for offing such great books in our Nashua, NH store.

    Sincerely yours;

    Mr. James R Mendes

    An unworthy book about a worthy character

    "The Diva Code" is not a book likely to be enjoyed by Miss Piggy fans or Muppet fans in general. It makes one long for the far-superior "Miss Piggy's Guide To Life", which portrayed the signature Muppet as a warmer, more generous-hearted character. This book shows signs of some hasty, last-minute revisions, contains no new pictures of the character, and contains in its verbiage nothing new, revealing, or very interesting about its subject. It illustrates, in short, how far the Muppets have fallen from their glory days. It also begs the question of whether or not Disney should cut the Muppets loose as it did Narnia. With product offerings such as this, it's difficult to see how Disney can successfully revive the Muppets. I cannot recommend this book. It is just another disappointment from the Muppet crew.
