richard, i finally finally looked at blair--i got netscape. it's great! i mean, blair, not netscape. i enjoyed the sassy retrospective and you are wasting your life in med school because you should be a fashion writer. i also liked the schwa clothes and the staplegun faux kitty boots advice and the parker posey thing--she's adorable. i saw her in this mini-hal hartley movie. so cute.

i'm sorry i didn't respond to your last email lo these many months ago but i thought you were a stalker. gay boys can too be stalkers. then mary said you weren't so i feel better now.

Blair: thanks margie. it's ok about thinking i was a stalker, i LOVED telling people about it.

Richard I just yesterday found your zine and tribute to Sassy page. It's rilly rilly great! I printed out the fashion stuff to share with Jacinta, Andrea and Janet. I think I may be the only ex-Sassy person (other than maybe Margie) to have access to WWW, but I'll spread the word. Jacinta was having major second thoughts about the fleece apron, so she'll appreciate the compliment. Of course, I am so glad you dug our fashion, which was often kinda overlooked. Are you in contact with Kim and Daisy? Because they're working on their next x-girl extravaganza, which promises to be a fun time for all. The new stuff they're working on for summer is great. You'll love the dresses. I'm pretty sure they'll be opening an x-girl shop on Lafayette St. soon, too. How bad is the "New, improved Sassy"?!? I hope you canceled your subscription, if you had one. bye. mary clarke

Dear 1/2 of Blair staff....
I was most impressed with the debut issue (got the site off of alt.female in case you're keeping track of such things), esp. the sassy profile. I was a sassy reader for FIVE YEARS and literally wept when the thing that peterson publishing created arrived in my mailbox. My friends and i spent a therapeutic evening ripping the damned thing to shreds. It seems like the latest reincarnation is somewhere along the lines of "TEEN reader's older sister who thinks she's hip because she watched alternative nation once and tries really hard".

anyway, before i start whining unbearably, thanks tons and tons and tons for the tribute and tell margie i LOVE her.

Subject: you guys rule!

how much more can i worship you? i just checked out your web page with Blair on it and i adore it. i would like to send you my own zine, which is a skate music thing. very obscure, as it is from laramie. e mail me and i will get your address or something.

I was friends with Christina and Jane, it's sad what has happened to Sassy, but that is the world of economics. My sister worked at Sassy and was a long-time contributor.
I will have to pass on to Lisa Whelchel about your homepage, although she doesn't own a computer and will probably think it's way to wierd. thanks in advance for the artciles.

hi again elise, i just wanted to tell you how happy i am that you liked my care package. and sorry about not being more aggressive and going in to see you. i was about to be late for a lecture, and in the back of my mind i imagined you to be like LIZ TIBERIS, so the combination made me run.

It's true, I am intimidatingly British, stylish, and connected to royals.

I love it that you're in med schl: by day, orgo; by night, bringing all things trendy to the internet. by the way, Amy, one of my best buddies in the office, sais your zine was "way 2 kool 4 schl," in general everyone loved it! See ya. Elise
