Is it just me ...?

I was reading a Daedalus Books catalog in the bathroom (some people keep porn in their bathrooms ... I keep book catalogs) and came across this little description in the children's section:
Barbie Birthday Bash
Barbie and her little sisters decide to throw a surprise party for Skipper. They go shopping for roller skates, wrap presents, and decorate a cake, while Ken videotapes the excitement when Skipper arrives.
Roller skates, huh? Oooookay.

Yes, I'm doing NaPoWriMo. No, I haven't written a poem yet today. Yes, I'm about to go into the study, clear off the desk (I've been avoiding the desk lately due to the large pile of unfiled papers, unread books, journals, etc. piled on top of it), and read some poems for a while. Then I will take out a pen and start.

I swear.

This one's for Ms. Loudon: Was Amelia Earhart a doomed castaway? Some pretty persuasive stuff here... wow.

How much would that suck? To be a lesbian stuck on an island with only one other person -- and it's a dude?
