You’re the One That I Want: Pull My Ferret?

On this week’s episode Clare and I read You’re the One That I Want, the sixth book in Cecily Von Ziegesar’s Gossip Girl series. You can listen to this episode on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, or wherever you like to listen. As a reminder, some of these links, including our Bookshop.org link, are affiliates.

This week I’ve been reading apartment brochures, and Clare’s been reading Valley of the Dolls by Jacqueline Susan.

Here’s an article about the Minnesota felony rape ruling.

The little demon Tooter
Turns out there are 14 seniors selected to be in the Whiffenpoofs every year, so not only is Cecily wrong about the number, but also they aren’t sophomores. It’s the oldest collegiate a cappella group, so even one minute of research would have revealed that.

Here’s the Lavender Brown train scene if you want to relive this nightmare.

Basically Serena as a monoline drawing

Wok and Roll is the karaoke bar Clare and I alluded to, and here’s an article about the fraternity/Hillary Clinton situation. However, in Cecily’s defense, Georgetown’s Kappa Kappa Gamma chapter wasn’t founded until 2013.

Yale has been D1 since at least 1971 when they split into divisions, so always, and Yale was one of the two schools credited with founding the NCAA (for rowing).

Nope, treats! is a semi-erotic magazine, not helpful teenage material a la Seventeen, although it was only originally published in 2011 and this book came out in 2004, so hopefully Cecily got some royalties from that.

Tiffany’s has tons of baby gifts for the little rep tie-wearer in your life. I understand “silver spoon” but a fork seems…misguided.
