City Paper is not for tourists
For proof that all our moms are adorable crackpots, please browse Postcards From Yo Momma. This is a new tumblr project from New York journalists Doree Shafrir and Jessica Grose. (Tumblr is basically blogging made very, very easy.)
Anyway, the ladies have solicited emails from readers’ moms — you know, the ones that are at once neurotic and doting and sometimes very mean. Or the ones in which mom tries to be cool and tech savvy. I have been giggling at the posts all week long. My boyfriend, however, thinks I’m goofy for getting such a kick out of it. He thinks it’s a symptom of the way women get all chummy with their moms as we get older. Whatever. It’s funny.
