I Can Haz Prozac-Induced Angst?

with 2 comments

The most interesting thing about this Gawker post is not that Elizabeth Wurtzel didn’t pass the bar exam but that Elizabeth Wurtzel is 40. Forty! The poster child for Gen-X-over-medicated-self-obsessed-anomie is now middle-aged? Eek! If I were not technically in Gen-Y, I think this might make me sadly nostalgic. As it is, it is just surprising—almost as surprising as finding out from this Salon article that the adorable pestilence that is LOLcat was only unleashed on the world less than two years ago.

Time is all sorts of weird.

  2. Nah, I call bullshit on LOLcats being that young.

    It’s like when I found out about Kurt Cobain’s death via Friendster.

    The Great State of Illinois is rife with time wormholes though, & I have spent some more than a few occasions in the fictional city of Chicago.
