Hee hee. Although I am sure I have made dopey mistakes like that myself. I’m surprised Jane didn’t show the love for Clement – after all he was a smoker just like her!
“In 2005, publisher HarperCollins digitally altered the photograph of illustrator Hurd, which had been on the book for at least twenty years, to remove a cigarette. Kate Jackson, editor in chief for children’s books, said “It is potentially a harmful message to very young kids.” HarperCollins had the reluctant permission of Hurd’s son, Thacher Hurd, but the younger Hurd said the photo of Hurd with his arm and fingers extended, holding nothing, “looks slightly absurd to me.”  HarperCollins has said it will likely replace the picture with a different, unaltered photo of Hurd in future editions. “
wow. well, i have read a bunch of your sea of shoes tagged posts in one sitting because i found them humorous and pretty astute. but…i must say i cringed a little too. you pick apart her looks, mercilessly. and you keep bringing up how and how much money she’s spending in her life. while i don’t think she is particularly interesting or compelling or even my cup of tea in the “looks” department, you really make yourself look more shallow than you accuse her of being, especially considering you’re not exactly supermodel status either. i don’t think shallow mudslinging about something so petty is ever a good idea, but least of all by pot calling the kettle black. and as far as her spending…this is again, highly relative. who is to say how one should spend their money? perhaps a homeless person thinks that what you thought was a modest purcahse was truly a luxury. nobody is going to force you to give it up or judge you for buying it.and frankly, her bank account, or her mom and dads bank account, is none of your business. what could be a truly snarky and smart blog is looking bitter and petty and made me sad to read. can you really be this shallow and bitter? you’re worse than your subject. at least she is a teenager.
i hate that i just spent 5 minutes of my life defending her, but your posts about her are like the worst of the valley girl movies they show on TV, reinforcing the very thing you claim to despise.
Hm. Seems like ems has an agenda. But besides an agenda, ems probably also has the soul of a poet. I only say this because ems, just like ee cummings, doesn’t capitalize. ems is beyond capitalization. And she’s beyond you, too, SW! So take that!
So first Jane likes kid looking art, kid looking clothes, and now kid books….well she almost had me convinced for a minute that maybe she’s a regressed child like Michael Jackson except he can wear ugly better than she can.
Next time we see her she’ll be wearing a hideous self made necklace with baby pacifiers for charms.
