I considered blogging about the alarming trends in some YA love interests, and I might yet formulate some coherent thoughts on the matter, but for now, everyone should go see what Para has to say. She's much more eloquent about it than I am. ;)
In other news, I drove a standard for the first time while I was down at my aunt's! (A standard car, that is. With a clutch and a stick shift and all that nonsense.) Now I can properly appreciate the convenience of automatic transmission. Seriously. I was only driving around a parking lot (with one poor unsuspecting car parked in the middle) and I thought I had too many things to think about. Clutch in, car on, shift to first, clutch off, gas on, stall out, fml, car not starting, wtf, oh right forgot about the clutch...and so on and so forth.
And oh, the poor puppies in the backseat! Or on the back floor, I should say, after I stalled out for the first time. Heheh.
I am in awe of those people who can drive a standard car an actual traffic-filled road and not die.
And on a more writing related note, my mutant WIP is SO CLOSE to being finished. Monstrous word count to be announced.
I think I'm going to ignore my Calculus and go work on it now.
