Hoorah! Lizzie Widdicombe’s article is out in the New Yorker, September 20 edition. I’d be a doll and link you to it, but it’s subscription only, so all you can view online if you don’t have a subscription is the abstract. Go find a print edition however, so you can stand back in awe of my (and my mama’s) infamy in ink. In case you missed my previous post that I wrote in anticipation of the edition’s release, the article is about fourteen-year-old fashion blogger Tavi Gevinson, who recently styled a shoot at my mom’s farm. After giving note to the location of the farm (“an organic-moss farm in Newtown, Connecticut” )Widdicombe goes on to describe what Tavi wore on the shoot, and then continues with “the farmer, a middle-aged woman in a straw hat, asked, ‘Who’s she?’
Steve answered, ‘She’s got a fashion blog.’
The farmer nodded. ‘My daughter’s twenty-two. She has a blog called Sexy Tofu. She writes about her two favorite things–food and sex.'”
Not sure what’s better; The fact that anybody who is anybody (meaning anybody who knows I am the aforementioned daughter-which is nobody) now knows that my two favorite things are food and sex, or the fact that I can now call the farm phone and ask for “the middle aged-woman in a straw hat.” Ha, at least my mama is a good sport and not offended. It’s a great article so seriously, go read it.
Okay, back to the test kitchen. Working on a big batch of mochanut vegan ice-cream! MmmMmm
