This is the shallow post.

(And then to bed with me.)

So, pandorasboxes has posted pictures of Eliza Dushku's "the best girls root for Boston" t-shirt (Eliza's appearance on Conan, and Daile's homemade t-shirt) and out of curiosity I Googled to see what company made the t-shirt.  Homegirls.com.  This sounded familiar, and I wondered if it was the Smithie founded company I read about it in the Alumnae Quarterly (an article which, in full-disclosure, I hadn't been thrilled with at the time).  Yup.  The divisiveness of stuff like “Real Women Don’t Date Yankees Fans” bothers me*, but I must admit I enjoy the convergences (did I not know that Eliza, not just Faith, is from Boston?).

*Yes, I get it, and I know it's all in good fun, and the Yankees are the Evil Empire ;) but 4 years at Smith has made me hypersensitive to the villifying of the Other, what can I say? (And wow, for someone coming in not knowing my context that makes me sound like a good liberal/radical rather than the embittered libertarian-type I am.)
