“The best way to get kids to read a book is to say: ‘This book is not appropriate for your age, and it has all sorts of horrible things in it like sex and death and some really big and complicated ideas, and you’re better off not touching it until you’re all grown up. I’m going to put it on this shelf and leave the room for a while. Don’t open it.”—
Happy Birthday!!!!! I hope your day is filled with wonder, sparkle and a much awaited birthday tweet! :)
Thanks. Its actually tomorrow but I am celebrating today because having your birthday fall on both a major religious as well as drug fueled holiday kinda takes all the attention away from you (even though the amount of chocolate bunnies and brownies out there right now has reached insane levels). : )
I’m struggling on wording my last tweet to Jayne Atkinson about my birthday tomorrow so its witty and fun and not stalker-esque. Think I’ve done a good job so far…leave it to the last one to be this hard.
When I was a little girl I decided I was going to Bryn Mawr because that’s where Katharine Hepburn went. Then I got a little older and decided to go to Vassar or Sarah Lawrence because smart, independent women had been going there for over a century. In the end I decided to go to Bloomsburg because I finally just wanted to be me.
