So I'm reading Daily Kos... because I tend to do that... and this book review article pops up today:http://www.dailykos.com/storyonly/2010/5/22/867314/-Book-review:-Amanda-Marcottes-Get-Opinionated
Then I'm like "that's weird, I used to know an Amanda Marcotte from Rocky Horror". So I look the name up on Wikipedia
, and sure enough:
Born in El Paso, Texas, she was raised in the small town of Alpine in the west of the state. She went on to study English Literature in St. Edward's University in Austin.
That's her, alright. I have rather distinct memories of her going on about Alpine, because Amanda was one of those girls that just talked nonstop. She used to play Columbia and Trixie, back in the Northcross Mall days (circa 1995-96), after joining cast with a group of girls from St. Edward's that happened to include my first wife. Now Amanda's a book author, apparently. Weirdness.
