1. Let me just get the important news out of the way first -- I heart Mr. Darcy and I have the coffee mug to prove it
. Go ahead, covet.
2. G-Unit Books
? Yes, indeedy. Considering the fact that my birthday isn't until September, it may be too early to mention the fact that I've got my eye on The Ski Mask Way
, but, you know, keep it in the back of your mind until fall. Also, in other Fiddy news, 50 Cent will be introducing a line of condoms

3. Literary theory vs. biology in a steel cage
. Who do you think would win?
4. Feministing picks a bone with

book will be published next year and is accepting submissions.
