Cat and Girl get All Mixed Up

    If I mentioned that I spent a large part of my teenage years going through outdated sets of Enclyclopedias my parents brought home from the library when they were being thrown out and cutting out the pictures I liked with an X-acto knife and making collages – would you hold it against me? (A few of those pictures appear here. The scientific images are from a study guide for the Earth Science Regents exam.)

    My dating experience in college lead me to believe that making collages was a (cool) teenage girl rite of passage.

    I seem to believe this so much that I felt comfortable pitching this headline to the Onion last April as part of one of my weekly sets:

    Local Girl Says Magazine Will Make Good Collage

    It did not get in, for a variety of factors I can only guess at (i.e. only anguish over).

    If this anecdote reads a grandstanding, please be advised: I’ve tied a few on tonight at a local bar.

    Grandstanding would be saying you wrote a published Onion article…

    I would totally’ve accepted that article as brilliant.
