Bounding from obsession to obsession.
I loved your post. But I feel really bad now because I just realized I have a hair tie (although not a scrunchie) on MY gearshift.Also, I thought of buying some Minx books but I had to admit I wasn't too interested when I saw most were written by men. My thought process was, "If I want to hear about the trials and tribulations of young women, I'd prefer persons who were once young women told me them." I'm sure those men wrote well but ... yeah, it wasn't making me rush out an buy them.
But what KIND of car?
Minx wasn't promoted much beyond the initial launch, it seems. I heard about THE PLAIN JANES but not many other titles.
Incidentally, whenever I post a comment, I get an e-mail delivery failure notification later. So presumably you're not getting comment notification.
