how did u come up with the name posthipchick?
well, het, here's the deal. i used to feel sort of young and hip and with-it, and then the feeling of hipness happened less often, and then i got MARRIED, for the love of god, like the least hip thing a person could do, and then i moved to the SUBURBS, which is like hell on earth for hipsters (and me, incidentally), and then i started shopping at the gap and then i knew it was over. so the post means beyond and the hip means cool and the chick means girl, which i still am, although maybe i'm a woman now since i AM GOING TO BE 30 IN 2 DAYS!
from someone without a blog (hi, gwen!):
how many career counselors does your school have for students?
ha, gwen! you are SO FUNNY! we have exactly 0 counselors for our 600+ students. i'm sure some fancy schools have career counselors or counselors at all, but typically, as far as i've heard, inner-city schools have few or none. other teachers may want to chime in with their stats on this, because i can only speak for my own school.
the lady wants the book recommendations. the lady will get just that.
i have to preface this by saying that my reading is going through a troubled time. i have felt, for months now, unable to focus on any reading whatsoever, and have actually PUT BOOKS DOWN that were perfectly good, but that i just don't have the focus for of late. that being said, my tastes are for the fast and furious- the good and easy punch. it's sad, but it's what i have to offer right now:
you remind me of me
as she climbed across the table
plan b: further thoughts on faith
when fox is a thousand
a home at the end of the world
and the question that nobody asked but i'll answer anyway:
yes, i do feel strangely proud that deep throat was found in my hometown.
see, folks, wasn't that fun? didn't you learn something? and wasn't it more interesting than me talking about how busy and tired i am (not a wooing tool). keep the questions coming, and i'll keep up with the answers
