Girl Crush, Take 3

In today’s Gawker, the editors tap into the cult of writing about the "girl crush" phenomenon. More specifically, they mock the New York Times' Stephanie Rosenbloom for writing an article very similar to one that appeared in the Observer in 2003.

"Aw, how cute. It’s taken Stephanie Rosenbloom almost two years to confess her girl-crush on Marshall’s story."

Aw, even cuter. It took Marshall almost three years to confess her girl-crush on Gwen Macsai's book Lipshtick, or, if you really want to get pissy about it, almost seven years to confess her girl-crush on Macsai's Morning Edition segment from which the book was adapted.

I'm kidding, of course. She probably got it from Caroline Knapp.
