Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? Not this Albee-holic

Where: N-train
Who was reading: A woman with a grown-out pixie cut, twiggy eye-makeup and green, spiney earrings bearing an uncanny resemblance to sprigs of rosemary.
A highly entertaining Google image search... of rosemary and pixies led me to this pixie quilting website. Of the pixies pictured, I would say the woman I saw reading most closely resembles Trixie Doodlehopper.
On the play's inspiration: "I was in there having a beer one night, and I saw "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?" scrawled in soap, I suppose, on this mirror. When I started to write the play it cropped up in my mind again. And of course, who's afraid of Virginia Woolf means who's afraid of the big bad wolf . . . who's afraid of living life without false illusions. And it did strike me as being a rather typical, university intellectual joke." —Edward Albee
But who's actually, like, really afraid of Virginia Woolf? [SPOILER ALERT] Martha.


  1. I wasn't afraid until I looked at the pixie quilt website ... most disturbing

  2. Whenever I see that title, I hum it to the theme of 'Whose afraid of the big bad wolf' from the Disney cartoon of the 30s.
