Julia Allison: Sparse Writer, Perfect Medium


So Julia’s literary agent (ha!) apparently asked if Julia wanted to contribute to the next six-word memoirs book.

This is perfect for everyone’s favorite wide-mouthed muppet, considering she is utterly incapable of stringing more than 10 words together on most posts (if any at all).

The concept, if you are unfamiliar, is fairly self-explainable: simply write your life story in six words.

She posted a Facebook video of her reading an email from her agent and surmising what her six-word memoir would be. Of course, Pulitzer Prize-winning  journalist Julia Allison, who was on the short-list for the Booker Prize last year, failed to come up with six measly words to summarize her sad, lonely, yet highly-documented existence. Then she posted this gem to her real-time-memoir NonSociety:

“Carrie Bradshaw bought laptop, started blog.”

She is totally treating this like a gig. After all, the editors of this series would be honored for her well thought out contribution. She’s in demand! She goes to meetings! She takes field trips to PR agencies! SHE’S FUCKING JULIA ALLISON, PEOPLE!

Too bad Julia fails to mention that ANYONE can submit their memoir for inclusion in the book.

So what say you, readers? Are you up for some interactivity? Post your best six-word memoirs for Our Lady of Cankles and Corn in the comments and we’ll highlight the best ones!

    And I’ll start!

    “Bi-polar boyfriend. Threw under bus.”

    Wasn’t Carrie, isn’t famous, just nuts.

  3. Gary Klein D.D.S. says:

    Broke, fat, failed. Back to Chicago.

    • sad :( says:

      ‘cept she’s far from broke

      • Gary Klein D.D.S. says:

        True dat. BUT if it weren’t for Momsers/Dadsers/Gramsers, she would be broke.

        And wearing those stupid black ruffled shoes every day makes her look like a broke-ass prostitution whore.

    • sad :( says:

      hee hee. Prostitution HO-AHHHH!

  4. squirrelbait says:

    I came, I saw, I lied.

    She’s not exactly doing Carrie Bradshaw one better. Carrie already used a laptop on SATC, the show/movie which was a visual representation of her daily life, or vlog, if you will. So, actually, Carrie already did Julia Allison one better.

    Jabbers, you stupid twat, enjoy this link to Carrie’s laptop:


  5. jubba-fat says:

    it’s always about me, not you.

    who’s my best friend this week?

    hope momsers keeps funding my failure.

    braying makes people listen harder, right?

  6. CupcakeOfDelusion says:

    liar, cupcake eater, fake, mean, fail

  7. Noncomplimentary Grapefruit says:

    Cameras let everyone enjoy my perfection.

    Faking it instead of making it.

  8. squirrelbait says:

    Writer creates fictional world; lives there.

  9. FooOnYoo says:

    Had job, home, life; now nothing.

    Oh wait! That’s Milo’s, Carr’s, and Rambin’s six-word memoir.

  10. Julia's Pickwickian Syndrome says:

    Wrongly thought exception could be made.

    An endless search for a loophole.

    Hated by internet; loved by self.

    I’m pretty; everything should be free.

  11. BunnyBingo says:

    Vain cupcake whore seeks free rent

  12. Reality Stripe says:

    Here I am, World. Now gimme.

    Legs never open, mouth never closes.

    My imaginary tiara goes with everything.

  13. Noncomplimentary Grapefruit says:

    Hid my light under a bushel.

    Couldn’t find the road less traveled.

    Full skirts hiding multitudes of sins.

    Peter Pan had the right idea.

  14. Reality Stripe says:

    Shunned diet, exercise. Embraced cupcakes, tutus.

    My scrapbook proves that I’m somebody.

    Memories erased; more space for pictures.

  19. unrelated says:

    Has Julia ever taken the subway? I’d pay for proof!

    • melissa sue says:

      didn’t Yulia lose Mega’s harddrive on the subway last year? Or was that the other way around? I’m sure she must have at least taken the subway ONCE.

      But never when we worked together.

      • partypants says:

        I think she did take it, because she made some big damn deal out of it. Like…she blogged about how she’s so new york now because she’s taking a subway.

        Or am I confusing her with Hamily again? Ugh too many spoiled brat blogs to keep up with.

      • Noncomplimentary Grapefruit says:

        I believe it was Mary who “accidentally” left JA’s hard drive on the subway — it was filled with unbacked-up pictures…heh. I seem to remember an early video where they discussed it.

      • narcissistheadband says:

        No, it was Meghan who lost Julia’s hard drive. And I think it was just a stunt. There were a few days of sobbing “OMG I lost my whole life” thing, then nothing. And she still has every single one of her old pictures, they have come up time and again. So WTF?!?!?

      • melissa sue says:

        good call, headband. probably a student to get a new, free harddrive.

  20. partypants says:

    Off topic, have we heard anything Jordache lately? Did they stop hanging out after harhar dumped her ass like last month’s corn?

    I work hard for the granny.

  28. Dahling says:

    I can’t remember… did Gloria Steinem or someone ask her to contribute to an anthology? It caused a big uproar here… whatever happened to that?

    • ironic slanket says:

      Wasn’t that Erica Jong? Something about the best sex people ever had? She promptly passed the question on to the internet. Not sure, it’s all blurry. As I said back then, I will only believe that it is really happening when said anthology is printed and has Momser’s and Daddy Warbucks’ biggest disappointment in the TOC.

  76. NewToLife! says:

    Every other time I have read Hemmingway’s 6 word story, I have found it moving and intriguing and kind of haunting. When Julia types it, it comes across as dull and lame. How on earth can something be bastardized by her typing the same 6 words as a master? I don’t know, but she has that skill to take gold and turn it in to dog shit.

  77. NewToLife! says:

    red head, green vag, black heart
