    Somebody help me! I’ve got Stockholm syndrome! I’m starting to actually like this song. Shoot me! Somebody!

    Okay, in all honesty, this is not a song I would ever have chosen, which means it’s leading to down paths I’ve never paid attention to before. In the past few hours, I’ve been listening to and reading about Sleater-Kinney, Bikini Kill, Liz Phair, Riot Grrrl, 3rd Wave Feminism … all kinds of interesting stuff.

    It’s also more than a little ironic to me that Meredith ends up being part of this whole big story.

    Unfortunately, I actually saw the Oprah episode about The Secret. Jim Carrey was on it. Very annoying. Don’t get me wrong, I love his comedy. But I just don’t consider him a very reliable testimonial for inner peace and fulfillment.
