I would just like to say thank you, thank you very much, to the guy who gave me that sex-of-author-in-question link. Because, see, then I threw a hissy fit. And then I wrote this.

And now I'm getting search engine hits for Adam Brody.

I want you all to know that at the time I wrote that post, I didn't even know who Adam Brody was.

("Hmm," says the detective, scribbling furiously in his coffee-stained notebook, "That is suspicious. May be a man after all? Possibly gay. Investigate this.")

I don't read girl rags or even women's rags. I don't know who the Sexiest Man Alive is supposed to be at the moment, and honestly, Brad-Pitt-is-Hot references are so tired anymore.

So I had to look for inspiration at the Teen People web site, which I was able to do only because vaguely in the back of my mind was this notion that "The O.C." was a halfway-popular show among young people, particularly young girls. And I probably picked up that idea just overhearing cell phone conversations in the damn mall or something.

Oh, you bastards. It'll be a long time before I'm over this.

Weirdly, I was thinking: Surely she means ADRIAN Brody, he of the weird nose and strange fame? Surely she typed that in wrong.

Then it was brought to light how seriously uncool I am, and that I have no fricking idea what the O.C. is even about.

If anyone needs me, I will be reading back issues of "Tiger Beat" all afternoon.
