7 mirror mirror on the wall, who has the best self-esteem of all?

i'm going to say this woman. because it's pretty ballsy (ahem... crazy? [no judgment!]) to appear on the back cover of your intellectually provocative NYT nonfiction bestseller in full medieval dress- replete with tiara and heaving bosom.

this photograph raises many important questions. does this woman, in fact, live her everyday life in full medieval dress? or does she just write in it? does she give readings and lectures in character as a medieval wench? does her husband mind? is her dry cleaning bill enormous? does she live in a castle? does she secretly rock out to avril lavigne?

i flatter myself that i'm capable of many many terribly odd things, but i fear that standing in a barnes & noble in full medieval attire amid people in everyday dress is probably, sadly, not one of them.

incidentally- dougO, if you're out there somewhere, i finally checked out that link you mentioned in a comment awhile back. beguilingly horrifying. who knew dakota fanning's home movies would be so riveting when soundtracked by your beloved LSF?
