Extra! Extra!

Read all about it!
In ink, that is.

Although I enjoy the world of the web along with the wonders of ever improving technology, I will never be an electronic reading type. I like pages to turn, the smell of a library and old books, the creasing of a new book jacket being broken in, glossy images in magazines, and even messy post-newspaper reading hands. I'm sad knowing that the printed word is a dying media.

Sorry Steve, I'm just not that into it.

Plus, if the newspaper is extinct, whatever will I use to keep my windows and mirrors streak free?


  1. On my blogger homepage, the picture of the woman reading the paper was really small, and I thought it was you. In a play. At Eagan High School.

  2. I think I have a newspaper clipping just like this of me. In a play. At Eagan High School. Except I had some grey paint in my hair. And probably was wearing jazz shoes. Perhaps, that is why I was drawn to this picture? Scary.

  3. Dear Future Lucy,

    I hope you are enjoying your new iPad, I know you must really enjoy reading your daily NYT and saving a few thousand trees, not to mention preventing your eventual appearance on the TV show "Hoarders" for having the largest collection of unread weekend newspapers in the history of the world. The crossword app is pretty cool too isn't it? And to think you said you never wanted an iPhone too.......
