If you’re anything like us, you had an aversion to Lisa Frank even at the age when you had to buy a trapper keeper. Unfortunately, most stores offered two options: Lisa Frank and stuff just as cynically awful for boys. Anyway, the reclusive Frank gave a rare interview to the Daily recently and discussed her billion dollar trapper keeper/sticker/stationary empire. She also says she understands Michael Jackson because it’s hard to live under public scrutiny. The whole thing is weird and worth a read.

Oh. And it ends like this:

It’s been a fresh start, not unlike a new school year, but, shored up by her sons, rainbow-colored pedicures, and two snuggly Golden Retrievers [like the ones on her stickers], Frank remains herself. “My house really is purple,” she promised, “and yellow and hot pink and light green and orange.”
