my history with the “allied media conference”, part two

this is part two of a multi-part history. part one is here. jason & i started meeting once a week to hash out plans for what we decided to call the bowling green zine conference. we definitely tried to come up with a more clever name, but could never settle on anything. i publicized theContinue reading “my history with the “allied media conference”, part two”

the ghost of sartorially-challenged boyfriends past

i polished off every item on my to-do list over the weekend (an occasion that happens maybe once or twice a year) & now i am at loose ends. my to-do list of course started over again on monday morning with all my weekly tasks, but it’s kind of weird not to have anything hugeContinue reading “the ghost of sartorially-challenged boyfriends past”

housekeeping for the brain

augh! (as claudia kishi might say.) another week has gone by & i failed to recap “top model”. & last week’s episode was awesome, with jessica molesting nigel barker & the ridonkulous photo shoot concept (don’t buy knock-offs, ladies! you’re bleeding the fashion industry dry!) & angelea flashing her crotch during the challenge. every cycle,Continue reading “housekeeping for the brain”

2000-2002, the crabigail review

a few folks have been recapping the decade from their personal perspective, now that we have collectively moved on to the teens. i like this idea, so i am stealing it. maybe it will help my mysterious readers (over one hundred hits on december 29? who are you people?) get to know me better. 2000Continue reading “2000-2002, the crabigail review”
