Another former Jezzie exile here. I feel like it's possible I'm having the same "drifting apart" with the 'pin now post-Edith/Jane I had with Jezebel in 2010 post-Anna H. That shopping addiction article comments section was ROUGH, y'all.

Regarding the by-by-book music video recreations...damn, I am really jealous that these ladies got to dress up and live out the "No Scrubs" video.
Please more Ask A Whoever columns, Hairpin Powers That Be, please!! They're what got me into this site in the first place but they've been SO sparse lately and it really makes me sad. :(
Going to go actually read this now but had to get that out there first.
Oddly, my favorite food thing in Farmer Boy is when Almanzo and his sister go hunting for wintergreen berries in the snow and crunch them gleefully. It sounds like a fairy tale!

@par_parenthese I have been feeling that way about a lot of the books mentioned in this artlce/the comments. Love Wuthering Heights, love Frankenstein, love The House of Mirth, LOVELOVE The Age of Innocence. I generally am not interested in reading books about reasonable people living without difficult circumstances making good decisions.

Thaaaaaaaaaat's the poooooooooooooint, though! The Great Gatsby is a beautiful, meaningless bubble with beautiful, meaningless characters about a beautiful, meaningless age. It's not supposed to be alluring because we see it for what it is. It's jewel-encrusted nihilism dripping with champagne.

@dorkmuffin I liked it the same way I like trashy romance novels sometimes, in that you are all the worst, what is wrong with you this is so deliciously melodramatic.
