My Squarehead Girlfriend

A year behind the rest of the HBO-viewing public,
we've just started watching Deadwood on DVD.
I was amused that the toughs refer to Scandinavians
as "squareheads," and have taken to calling my
Minnesota girlfriend, with her Swedish roots, My
Squarehead Girlfriend. Even asked her won't she please,
baby-baby, please, lemme hear some of that squarehead
talk. She -- pictured here taking a chocolate cake out
to the cabin for a birthday dinner with my mom -- refuses
to oblige and, taking her own cue from Deadwood,
calls me a Limey Bastard.
