Hey Stephanie: how can you be so sure I'm not Tim of the New Earnestness? I like new stuff, and have been known to be earnest on occasion, despite my traditional association with the eye-rolling forces of irony.

I was going to make some cutting remarks about what a "new" earnestness might be and didn't Wilde already do a number on that, and didn't the Beats and confessionals clean up anything that might have been left over. But I guess that would just prove the point.
