Speaking of fairy tale products, did you know that there's actually an eggplant called a Fairy Tale Eggplant? Burpees sells the seeds. I don't even like eggplant but I'm tempted to try growing some of these. Bon Appetit has a recipe for beer battering them. Perhaps I could try some Fairy Tale eggplant in a Snow Drop beer batter? I just might like that!
fairy tales for twenty-somethings," has written a book titled Alice in tumblr-Land and Other Fairy Tales for a New Generation. I am clearly not the target audience for this book (not, as you know, being of a "new generation"). On the other hand, I am fairly addicted to all things internet so I think I could appreciate a book where the Tortoise and the Hare Facebook stalk each other rather than actually race and Peter Pan finally has to grow up and get a job or at least start paying his parents rent. Y'all know how much I love satire! Here Manley writes about the book for The Huffington Post. "As a child, fairy tales were how I made sense of the world--a dream of becoming an apple salesman could only come from a kid who really believed anything was possible."
