Why do novels always have to say they're novels? Like, on the cover of American Gods. It says this in tiny tiny print above the title. Is this a leftover from when novels were considered tawdry entertainment not fit for respectable people so they'd know what not to read? It just seems to me a very odd practice, because almost everything I find at bookstores are novels nowadays.

A stupid thing to ponder when I should be studying for my sociology final, I know.

My friend Jeff is going to propose to his girlfriend at the end of summer. He is two months older than me. I feel the creaks in my bones setting in...
