For those of you unfamiliar with Penney’s genius blog, The Bag Lady Papers, it details the ex editor’s life pre-Ponzi. That’s right, she was one of the unlucky investors screwed over by Bernie (whom she refers to as “the MF,” or “the Motherfucker”).
Penney, an expert at bitcoin robot trading in her past life, has garnered a lot of flack for the blog, on which she bemoans being forced to live like us common folks (no more maids and ‘spensy dinners) whilst recounting tales of sippin’ on Cristal and makin’ her art (photos of blow-up dolls floating in pools. No, I am not kidding).
Let’s see, since Madoff made off with her savings, Penney has scored two, count ’em, two, writing gigs. That makes her twice as employed as the folks over at HarperCollins, Domino, Plenty–need I go on? The bag lady might be able to keep her Prada after all.
