Hi, you! I'm the editor and publisher of Engine Books, a little fiction press that I started in 2011, and co-editor of Freight Stories, an online fiction journal. And I write. And teach freshman comp. Etc. Like a lot of us? Anyway, live in Indianapolis, married to another writer/editor, eat like the Midwesterner I am (lots; indiscriminately), garden, and now get weird sun-spots on my face instead of the cute freckles I used to have because I am almost 40.
I did this for my husband's birthday, years and years ago, before we were even engaged, when we were really poor. He still says without prompting that it's the best present he ever got.
I watched a movie based on this article when I was waaayyy too young. It has haunted me ever since. I can still almost recite the murderer's diatribe before he kills her.
@isavedlatin College, here, if I hadn't dropped out for a while.
These numbers look way, way better to me than I would have expected had I listened to all the people shrieking about the death of the book, and than I would have expected considering my freshman comp students' general antipathy toward reading. They left me optimistic about books, actually.
@NellyBly There's a very good reason Wuthering Heights keeps getting repackaged with new YA covers. It's *extremely* popular with teenage girls. Hugely so.
@psychedelicate She looks better all the time, too. When you watch old shows or episodes, then look at her now, she's just getting more gorgeous.
The argument has always been that women's clothes are more complicated in their tailoring than men's, which when I iron, makes a ton of sense to me. But is also kind of a bullshit excuse to overcharge.
@ clara morena Yeah, maybe it's because the Eartha Kitt *sounds* so tongue-in-cheek, but I always assumed that's how we were supposed to read it.
@OhMyGoshYouGuys I could be remembering wrong, but I don't think the woman ever speaks in that one. (I'm not about to watch it again to be sure.)
@Onymous Jeff Goldblum's voice is ridiculously appealing, too.
