you're only as old
as the average age
of the cast of Gossip Girl

Now, I loves me some Gossip Girl, but I gotta tell you that I can't relate to a single person on this show. Except maybe for Ruffus, the washed-up 90s grunge-band father.

So it was my delight that finally this week GG introduced us to Vanessa, who is Dan's lost hipster love.

I can't tell you how excited I was this week hearing phrases like:
so, tonight at the Angelika and we'll see whatever's playing
my friend works in the costume shop at BAM
I brought you Pierogi from Veselka
