Hey, man, don't look at me, I just work here.
Just in case you were wondering, I checked it out on Amazon.com. The book's full title is Reviving Ophelia: Saving the Selves of Adolescent Girls. It's about how girls get "poisoned" into having low self-esteem, and how the girls with higher intelligence have a tendency to become more depressed "because they are more aware of their surroundings and therefore more aware of the new constraints they face as they leave childhood." But "a reader from Tuscon" says, "Do not be fooled by this book's hope-inducing, yeah, yo-go-girl [sic], strong woman of the '90s title. It's all a bunch of melarky [sic], if you ask me. Yeah, I'm a teenage girl, you know, and I been through some Cr@p in my life, but i [sic] didn't allow myself to become some kind of detached, prince-loving, purple-jeans-wearing kind of weirdo." I no longer understand what the book is exactly, but I am interested in the chapter on Prince fans and detachment. Julia tells Meghan she'll see her in class and Meghan asks us in a voice-over, "How weird is this?" She says that Julia is acting like nothing ever happened and in case we are watching this show without a frontal lobe, they once again flash back to the scene where Meghan sees Dan with his shoes off and Julia fastening her sweater. Meghan hair-tucks as she tells us that the worst part is she can't talk to anyone about it, not even her parents. She can't forget it, she tells us as we fade to white and bring on the opening theme music.
In the School Without Classes, Meghan is surrounded in Apple product placement. She stares into the monitor of her iMac, while behind her someone types on an iBook. Oh, just in case you were wondering, I still haven't received mine. Apparently the earthquake in Taiwan doesn't affect the Center Of the Universe Family. Bitter, thy name is pamie. Cue the five-note Get Real jingle as Meghan peers around her tangerine-flavored machine and sees Dan walk into her class. Her hair is depressed because she can't even look at him. Meghan blinks a lot and then decides she can't just sit there and pretend this whole thing didn't happen. She walks over to Dan's iMac in Blueberry. "How long?" she asks. "We shouldn't talk about this here," he says and looks around, but everyone else is too busy thinking different. "Were you seeing her when we were still together?" Meghan warbles. The Homicide camera wheels around to Dan as he says, "Come on, Meghan, don't do this." "My God," Meghan sneers, cueing the five-note Get Real jingle on the sensitive oboe, "here I was missing you, thinking there was this outside chance that you and me [sic] could be together. Do you know how stupid I feel right now?" Meghan scrunches her face to try and make some tears. The oboe hits a sensitive high note. "Do you have any idea?" Beep! Meghan gets flashed back into reality. She has fallen asleep and has received a message. The screen shot has a large eagle with "Truman High School Advanced Computer Lab" written across with a "chat mail message" open on the screen. It says:
