Down with PPD? MD? PPPD?


Welcome, Wonderers. Alice will be back next week, sparkling words all over this column like yummy little Veuve Cliquot bubbles. This week, Fellow Wonderer Jenn of Breed ‘Em and Weep is reporting once more from Weepland, where she has been pondering the ongoing saga of the forlorn-yet-defiant, mascara-streaked creature that is Britney Spears.

Welcome aboard HMS Princess Euphoria


For the next two weeks, Wonderland by Alice Bradley will hereby be known as Blunderland by Jenn Mattern. I’m not a pundit, but I borrowed a winged maxi pad from Alice once, which led to this temporary gig while Alice is on brief hiatus. Most of the time I can be found weeping copious word […]
