    Here's the Story: Marcia Brady's real horror

    So I just read Here's the Story, which is Maureen M's total exposure of her horror life while being Marcia Brady. It was heart wrenching, to the point of pullin my heart out. Plus, it was true. Marcia had a messed up time, even though Greg probably hooked up with her in Hawaii. Some of the...

  10. novella


    I'm actually immersed in his Blood-Dark Track, because that novel Netherland was so fuckin faithful to NYC in many ways, so even though I don't usually do Anonymous Memoirs with no Apparent Angst, I had to get his book because he's got chops. Also, I just finished Somebody Rimington's...

    alright let's do this.

    Litany is a yarn perv. That's why she tells dirty stories. Those are 'yarns'. But the act of crocheting is painful. And knitting is very very difficult indeed. Plus the product is not really what you want, is it? I'm more of a moire silk type person. Taffeta. Velveteen shoes. That sort...
