Drive-by update-y post!

DONE DONE DONE!  HAH!  And class isn't for 40 minutes, and I was 98% done an hour ago anyway!  “Power Imbalance and Inequality in Marriage: A Social Critique.”  1250 words, really about 6 or 7 lines shy of four solid pages but we’re going to call it “thoroughly on page 4” and therefore within the length requirement, which was defined as 4-5 pages or 1200-1500 words .  How many times did I say some variation of ‘equal’ in this paper?  *counts* Seven, including the title.  I feel like I should edit some o’ that, but since it’s technically three different words…yeah, let’s just go.  I want to be done in an official capacity.

Final sentence hammered into place was the second of the following: She further chastises herself for any time she is not “thankful and submissive” in her thoughts – a far cry from her declaration, once upon a time, that “[I did] very well when I wasn’t interfered with!” (61).  In the end, her inability to define herself outside subservience to another causes her collapse ON HERSELF LIKE A DYING STAR!! 

(Dude, it’s simply not a quality paper until I’ve restrained myself from sticking something fandom-y in there.  And see, after like a month of playing “Dunder and Dwightning” I just heard that line in the ending jumble last week, and now it stands out to me like nothing else, so now it gets stuck in my head.  A lot.)

Dear Our Mutual Friend: I apologize for hating on you those first two or three hundred pages.  You’ve gotten pretty awesome and exciting lately, and I may have muted a squeal and shivered with joy in my seat on the bus when

Rokesmith was all *~swoonworthy*~ and finally swept Bella into his arms.  Did not realize how much I was anticipating that match until it happened!  And then after that it was just a thing of constant beauty and joy.  

I’m on page 600 now...the end of Book Three. Think I’m probably going to finish it tonight, because I’m all wound up.      

Dear The Hungry Tide: Because Dickens is way more awesome than you, I still haven’t opened your cover even though I’m supposed to have finished you by 1:00 PM. No love, Me.   
*is reading detailed reviews in lieu of reading entire book in 30 minutes*  WAIT, WHAT?  WHY DID NO ONE TELL ME THIS BOOKS WAS FULL OF TIGERS AND WILDLIFE AND STUFF?  I got so bored by the first page that I kept falling asleep!  Stupid clothbound hardcover copy, which normally is a type I find awesome but not in this case when it means I get no summary and just assume it's a stupid book about political crap in India like everything else we've read!  Drat it, I would have made more time for this on Wednesday night if I'd know that!    *is already plotting essay in which she will discuss the tigers at great length*

Voice: I qualify as 'we,' by the way.
