211 Things Make a Post

Title: 211 Things a Clever Girl Can Do
Author: Bunty Cutler
Publisher: Perigee
EAN: 9780399534416
Price: $15.95
 
A possible alternate title to this book might be "The Dangerous Book for Young Women." Inside are helpful essays on "How to escape a vicious swarm of bees" or "How to descend a staircase in high heels." You will be as impressed by its real-world knowledge as you will be humored by its tongue-in-cheekiness. My favorite entry so far is "How to lose six pounds in six hours," which includes recommendations such as "blow your nose" and "shave your head." A must-give from every girlfriend, to every girlfriend.

There is, in fact, The Daring Book for Girls. Chris found it patronizing to girls, actually. But if I start going on about how incredibly patronizing Danica McKellar is about Math for girls, somehow *I'm* the snooty one...

I mean, for heaven's sake: "Math Doesn't Suck: How to survive middle school math without losing your mind or breaking a nail."

I have done a LOT of math, and I have never even come close to breaking a nail doing it.

Yes, I enjoyed The Dangerous Book for Boys, and also thought the Daring Book for Girls was crap.

Then again, I also quit Brownies in 2nd grade because they wouldn't let me into Boy Scouts.

I miss math. And Mr. Oberly.

Bunty? Bunty? Seriously?

I'm speechless. Her parents must have been very cruel people.
