"Pandas!"

Caitlin Flanagan on Twilight:

One of the signal differences between adolescent girls and boys is that while a boy quickly puts away childish things in his race to initiate a sexual life for himself, a girl will continue to cherish, almost to fetishize, the tokens of her little-girlhood. She wants to be both places at once—in the safety of girl land, with the pandas and jump ropes, and in the arms of a lover, whose sole desire is to take her completely.

Ho hum. A photo of the stuffed pandas in my bedroom:

The bigger one is General Tso, the smaller one is Magdalen, so names because I bought it at a shop near Magdalen College, Oxford back in 2002.
