The Jokes Just Write Themselves


It has come to this: I am procrastinating so thoroughly from packing for the insane, multi-day train trip I am about to take alone with the Bean that I have gone and started a twitter account, @bionicbabymama. I am so late to this game it’s a miracle there were any accounts left.

So far it is mostly about cannibalism in children’s literature.

So, you know, if you’re into that sort of thing, or you would like the play-by-play version of my imminent demise, you can follow my, erm, twits. As opposed to what got you following here. Ahem.

(re: the trip: the short version is that my mother is too sick to travel, I am terrified of planes (don’t start), and a trip to my parents’ place means a trip to Sugar’s so that it is fair. In lieu of flowers, please send gin.)

  1. I’m not on Twitter, but wanted to say good luck with the trains. I just finished reading Straphanger, which made me want to weep for North America and its train system.

  2. consider yourself “followed”!

  3. Hi! I don’t know how your work situation shook out, but I just saw this go by on facebook and thought of you…The person’s name is Paisley Currah, and he’s a friend of a friend, so I have no good insight about anything other than what it says. But it looks like it’d be fun to teach.
    “Looking for an instructor to teach Queer Politics in Modern America, a political science/gender studies course at Brooklyn College this fall. Last minute I know. Contact me at”

  4. Wow! Good luck (with the twittering and the train riding/single-parenting-while-traveling)!
