I'm back! The cruise was great, surprisingly great in some ways.
While I was gone, almost six months of posts mysteriously appeared on Jacob Clifton's blog, Knees Up. As you may recall, Clifton is the writer who so brilliantly recaps Gossip Girl on TWOP. I'm puzzled as to what exactly happened at the blog; it almost seems like a magical occurrence--either that or an attempt to gaslight me.
At any rate, among the posts is a long passage that the TWOP editor (a classmate at Ergo's and my super-secret college, BTW) cut from the official recap, explaining the greatness of GG. It made me run hastily to the handful of emails I've sent Clifton to make sure that I have never actually used the phrase "guilty pleasure." Phew!
Also, he's convinced me to read The Wind in the Willows, and it's really high time since I'm supposedly a children's literature aficionado.
