Hillary is a giant nerd and former Mathlete. She once read large swaths of "Why Evolution is True" and a geology book aloud to her infant daughter, in the hopes of a) instilling a love of science in her from a very young age and b) boring her to sleep. After escaping the wilds of Waco, Texas and spending the next decade in NYC, she currently lives in upstate New York, where she misses being able to get decent pizza and Chinese takeout delivered to her house. She lost on Jeopardy.

There’s just nothing to get your blood pumping like blasting “Shoop” while driving with the windows down.

1993! You are a wealth of musical riches! How am I to be happy with a mere ten songs of your excellence? By picking fifteen instead, that’s how. Turn up yer speakers, kids, we have a bit of (almost) everything this week.

1986, already! The year of my brother’s birth. I venture outside of my usual musical territory this time around, and let us all be better for it. Behold…

Lucy Woodhull is a novelist, humorist, parodist, and all-around geek. Her latest book is THE DIMPLE STRIKES BACK, sequel to THE DIMPLE OF DOOM, a rom-com about a depressed secretary/wannabe actress and the art thief who ruins her life. And then makes everything better. Way better. As in sex. There's lots of sex. "Utterly un-putdownable!" says a reviewer who is not Lucy's mom. Check out www.lucywoodhull.com for buy links and samples.

Like, ohmyGod, it’s totally 80s over here! Do you still own Hammer pants? Well, that’s too bad–they’re not back in. Carolina Herrera does not go near that shit, people. But you can wear the 80s today if you dare, radical ladies. So put on your Madonna and let’s talk about the 1980s!
