I’m Bordering On Decrepit, Says NYT
The New York Times didn’t address me personally, but I know they’re thinking it!
Since Sunday, I’ve heard a lot about the Maude Apatow profile in the New York Times. I read it from the actual paper, since I’m an elitist with Sunday delivery. People have been talking about how she’s cute, talented and smart for her 14 years - all very true.

I’M SORRY, WHAT NOW?! If I gave a quote to the NYT and they called me practically decrepit (even in jest!), I would have laid the smack down.

* Not valid if I were daughter of Judd Apatow and Leslie Mann. I would live it up!
