Party City sells a "Girls' toddler Cookie Monster costume" and a "Boys' toddler Cookie Monster costume" -- there's a slight difference between the two, but I can't quite spot it. But I guess they're just filling the market created by parents who want their kids to look their best, right? And the parents are in no way pressured to buy their girls crazy, awful, second-rate Cookie-Monster-as-princess costumes by the word BOY emblazoned on the good one. I really hope that Children's Television Workshop pulls the license for these.
I write books. My latest is a YA science fiction novel called Homeland (it's the sequel to Little Brother). More books: Rapture of the Nerds (a novel, with Charlie Stross); With a Little Help (short stories); and The Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow (novella and nonfic). I speak all over the place and I tweet and tumble, too.
