No Such Nonsense

A little of this, that and... what was I talking about again? It's TV, sports, pop culture and politics - all the stuff that really matters in life.

The Great J. Blume

I saw a post on Jezebel about a Judy Blume quiz. I've tried to cut back on my quiz intake lately, but couldn't help myself on this one.

I loved Judy Blume.

I grew up with her - starting with the silly exploits of Peter and Fudge in Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing, on to the breast-obsessed girls of Are You There God, It's Me Margaret, to the more mature Deenie (masturbation - oh my) and, by sixth grade, secretly on to the very dirty (in my memory anyway) Wifey.

Blume books were the first ones I read as a kid that were concerned with the things I was concerned about (boys, boobs, embarrassing tween angst) and, in a world that didn't yet have Harry Potter, they were the thing that actually got all of my girlfriends reading books. Do kids still read Judy Blume? Or is it all Twilight now?

And for the record, I got 82% on the quiz.

    I know you don't know me but I am now following your blog because I was just looking through people's blogs and yours looked interesting and I wanted to know if you still post things on here.
