Disney’s First Jewish American Princess

Between a cold/flu since Tuesday and my regular old fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue, I am laid up in bed whiny, sniffly, sneezy and quite dopey. Hopefully, I’ll find something meaningful to say about Chanukkah before it’s over. In the meantime, I’m going to have to swipe cool stuff from other websites and bring them to you! Hope your Chanukkah is less whiny, sniffly, sneezy and dopey than mine!


Is there really such a thing as a “Jewish” American princess or is it just an American princess problem? I was recently pondering this when someone was remarking on how all the Jewish guys at a single event had “computer jobs.” “Such a stereotype!” Eye rolling ensued. So I asked, “Doesn’t the fact that they’re in computers mean they have, uh, good jobs that pay well?” “Yeah, but it’s so nerdy.” I guess I’ve got low standards. I was just grateful when my boyfriends had jobs.

  1. Is there really such a thing as a “Jewish” American princess or is it just an American princess problem?

    Hard to say. I tend to find that shallow, vapid young women with way too much money on their hands crosses more than a few ethnic and religious categories.

    But I'm not well-versed in the particulars of Jewish American Princessdom, so I'm not sure.


  2. Yeah, I agree. I think it does cross religious and ethnic lines. I've definitely got some not Jewish not American relatives who might fall into the “princess” category. Of course, when I say this I'm slightly jealous that they have the luxury of being shallow and vapid because they have too much money on their hands. I mean if you're going to be shallow and vapid, wouldn't you rather do it with a limitless American Express card?


  3. Am I weird that “nerd” or “geek” is an immediate +10 points in the dating category? Like, I would rather date a geek. Seriously. They stand a better chance of understanding my jokes, plus they will probably be able to fix my computer when it wants to be a brick.

    WIN/WIN, I say!!!


  4. It's a spoiled americna daughter problem. You'll find that if you go to many parts of New Jersey you can't tell the difference between the gentile or Jewish spoiled brats.

    But that sounds like a great cast. However Disney would NEVER hire Silverman. Can you imagine the backlash?


  5. I suppose you're talking about all the money I would be spending to make my face immobile with Botox.

    Of course! Who needs facial expressions or the ability to blink?
