PROP 8 HAS BEEN OVERTURNED!!
More here, with links to the full text of the ruling in comments.
My faith in humanity is partially reaffirmed.

And here is my other news: I AM GOING TO BEIJING THIS NOVEMBER! It's for a political science paper on Chinese politics. We spend three weeks in Beijing attending lectures (in English) at a Chinese university and visiting various important sites around the city, then we come back home and have all summer to write an essay on some aspect of Chinese politics and government. It's a limited-entry course that I applied for a few weeks ago and I just found out I got accepted.

OMG.

My grades for the second semester finally came through and WOW.
A in International Relations, A+ in Political Science, A+ in Geology and A+ in Environmental Science.
I'm completely bowled over.

I have just read City of Glass, the third book in Cassandra Clare's Mortal Instruments trilogy.  Sure, it's definitely not great literature - it's somewhat overwritten and under-edited - but I thoroughly enjoyed it.
Spoilers under the cut )
Anyway, I recommend it to CLAMP fans (angst, messed-up relationships, love dodecahedron, urban fantasy, subtext etc.) and to urban fantasy fans and generally to most of my friends.
