I saw Juno last night and am currently working on my review of this very wonderful and weird little film. I got the best and nicest rejection email yet from bitch magazine. They don't publish film reviews per se, but they do publish feminist critiques of films, so I've pitched them one of Juno.
For the time being, I'd like to post this intro paragraph to a short story contest I'm entering at the end of next week.
