Weird fact I'm going to try and read into: the most-commented Jezebel post of 2007 was not about forgiving your rapist or cheating on your boyfriend or butt sex or birth control or that one time you got way too drunk and made a bad decision. No, far and away it was the one about the books you read as a kid. The list was super high-low, as they say in the fashion world: Jane Eyre alongside Baby-sitters Club, Narnia next to V.C. Andrews, Jackie Collins bumping up against Ray Bradbury. And aside from reminding me how it used to be not only possible but popular to concentrate on the same body of text for hours at a time, it reminded me of the most awesomest thing about this blog: I get to comment on Jamie-Lynn Spears while making fun of Mike Huckabee commenting on Jamie Lynn Spears while making fun of Mike Huckabee not being briefed on Iranian nuclear proliferation ALL ON THE SAME BLOG. We all do! And shit, I don't usually admit this to anyone, but that is awesome. Maybe the big problem with mindporn like Danielle Steele and Sweet Valley High and US Weekly has not ever been that it exists, but that it's no longer expected that anyone who indulges in it once in awhile has the brain cells left for anything else.
