VIP Island

The Italian tells us that this is the name of a bad reality show in Italy, and we think this is very funny. Although Big Brother is the successful reality show that people watch in Italy, VIP Island is kind of like where Italian reality show stars go to sit in their filth and think about why their careers didn't really pan out how they had hoped.

But we think the name is great.
If our blog had a VIP Island, here is who would be on it in.

1. jonathan
2. Lana:lesshotthanclairemorepimpthanlara
3. BarbaraKingsolver
4. Lana(again)
5. R_y_a_n
6. Court
7. notbarbarakingsolver!

You can get yourself on VIP Island by doing something simple: writing comments!

I don't know about this VIP mularky, but I do have some intereseting facts about Barbara Kingsolver. This may help us to determine 1) If this poster is indeed the REAL Barbara K 2) If not, (and that's where my $ is) who this real poster is.

r_y_a_n: "Barbara is it true that after growing up in rural Kentucky that you eventually went to the U of A and are now living with you family in Tucson, AZ?"

Barbara K: "Yes r_y_a_n, that is the god-honest truth. However did you find this out about me?"

r_y_a_n: "I Googled you."

Barbara K: "Oh"

r_y_a_n: "Do you know that I too live in Tucson, AZ? Isn't that such a coincidence? "

Barbara K: "That's amazing! Let's go get coffee sometimes and catch up on Lara and Claire's latest posting gossip!"

whatever it's totally barbara kingsolver (though isn't it appropriate that her last initial is K, somewhat Trialish, no)

i know because i feel it in my heart.

another barbara kingsolver fact:

- barbara kingsolver once wrote a book called the poisonwood bible.

I think a question that only Barbara Kingsolver would know the answer to would by: WHY HAVE YOU NOT WRITTEN ANOTHER BOOK SINCE SMALL MIRACLES IN 2004 WHICH WAS REALLY JUST A COLLECTION OF ESSAYS FROM THE LATE NINETIES/EARLY MILLENIUM AND SO WAS JUST A COP OUT????

dear r_y_a_n,

you sound like a nice boy. and by "nice boy," i mean stalker. please do not create fantasy coffee dates with strangers on the internet.

best,

barb


dear lara and claire,

i am saddened to hear that you consider my recent writing hiatus as a cop-out. few things give me greater pleasure than writing novels. however, raising my 10 year old daughter and pursuing my passions for environmental activism and human rights advocacy have demanded much of my time in recent years. I am not a monkey who lives to entertain you. If you would like more reading material, i recommend the special 10 year anniversary hardcover edition of The Bean Trees.

best,

barb
