"HEY, QUICK QUESTION? IF YOU'RE A FEMINIST, WHY DO YOU HAVE 'GIRL' TWICE IN YOUR BLOG TITLE?"

So glad you asked. "The Only Living Girl in Glen Burnie" is a play on the exquisite Simon and Garfunkel song "The Only Living Boy in New York". If I had adjusted it to "The Only Living Woman in Glen Burnie," it would've not only lost the right rhythm, it would've also taken away the childlike quality that I think Paul Simon was expressing (thus why he picked "only living boy" rather than "only living man"). Yes, women are infantalized and "girl" can be a derogatory term, however I stand by my rearrangement.
As for "Girl Interrupted", I am (obviously) borrowing from the Susanna Kaysen memoir Girl, Interrupted in which she deems herself thusly.

This time I read the title of the painting: Girl Interrupted at Her Music.

Interrupted at her music: as my life had been, interrupted in the music of being seventeen, as her life had been, snatched and fixed on canvas: one moment made to stand still and to stand for all the other moments, whatever they would be or might have been. What life can recover from that?


Now you know the REST of the story. You're welcome.
