The Femme’s Guide to the Universe is one of my favorite books ever. I got it as a present for my 20th birthday from my girlfriend at the time. It was something of a joke between us because I was really proactively rejecting labels and being pissed that everyone would call me femme. I thought I had lost my original copy in Katrina and ordered one off Ebay because it’s like a souvenir from my misspent youth. Then last year I was going through the storage shed at my (current) girlfriend’s mom’s house and there was my original copy. I had forgotten that I’d put a couple crates of books at her house to store the month before Katrina hit. I was so happy. Now, I have two copies.
