literary kinks and other mystical creatures.

Hokay, so I'm writing my BA thesis (which, yes, y'all heard about time and again, and well, get ready for more, because right now this is mostly what's on my brain. I apparently speak of it while sleeping. Srsly).

It's about using literary works in language teaching, instead of artificial textbook materials. And I got to the part about reader/text interraction, and schema theory, and the preconceived notions we bring to each text we read.

And it got me thinking thinky thoughts that led to pondering my literary fascinations, obsessions, and kinks. (BTW, randomly. Oxford comma, yay or nay?)
