Remind me not to call her “cute”

A project on Kathy Shaidle’s back burner:

I want to write a book called The Consolations of Ugliness, which would be a (cough!) meditation on the pros and cons of being a non-beautiful woman; the concept of the jolie laide; how ideals of female beauty have evolved.

I’d buy that, simply because it’s Kathy Shaidle — see Acoustic Ladyland reference here — but I would find it hard to believe that it’s in any way based on her own personal experience.
