On a positive note I worked out; so, maybe the workout contributed to the loss. Needless to say, I am undeserving of the loss. I pray my summer hiatus gives me the kick in the junk I need to get myself together.
Soooooo, in a previous post I mentioned a couple of guilty pleasures robbing me of my time, thus depriving you of my capricious posts.
Guilty pleasure #1: Weeds...the show.
When the show originally aired several years ago I watched a couple episodes of the first season, but for what ever reason...I stopped. Well thanks to Netflix, I recently finished watching seasons 1-6. And let me tell you; Weeds kept me rolling in stitches and at the edge of my seat. I recommend Weeds for those craving an escape from a long brutal day.
Guilty Pleasure #2:
Long story short, a co-worker mentioned the series and texted me a page from the book. When I read that page, my eyes bucked out of my head and my mouth opened wide enough to catch a few flies and anything else flying by.
So needless to say, after reading the texted page I immediately purchased the book. Hey...DON'T JUDGE! I needed to investigate the Shades hype to see the reason behind the uproar.
Well my bloggy buddies, after completing the trilogy I informed for friend (the one who sent the text) and the following convo ensued:
Me: GIRL! I FINISHED THE TRILOGY!!!Do I need to explain the Bzzzzz? You guys can figure it out! But if you happen to be slow on the uptake...the "Bzzzz" represents B.O.B., here battery operated boyfriend. HA HA HA! I <3 my friend! I refuse to reveal her name in order to keep her identity a secret. I am more than confident that she prefers not to be outed as the owner of an arsenal of adult pleasure paraphernalia:-)
Friend: WHAT! ALREADY!!
Friend: NOT ME! I want to savor the books. *Then she looks off into the horizon with a dreamy sexed up look on her face...lol* I read a little. Then I read a little more. THEN I read over the parts I just read and THEN...
"Bzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz"ME: Bwahahahahahahahahahhahahahahahahahahahahahhahahah...YOU ARE INSANE! :-D Toooo bad batteries didn't come with the book!! Haaaa hahahaa! BATTERIES NOT INCLUDED!
Did you see the 50 Shades parody on SNL?

|I love the "Hey Girl" thingies!|
Sometimes ready the trilogy made me jumpy. I felt like I needed to receive permission to read it or I would get in trouble if someone caught me.
Now with all that being said...do not purchase the book in hopes that it's some literary masterpiece. It's soft core porn y'all...smut. A few people I mentioned the book to expressed their disappointment with the author's writing. I never promised the next Anna Karenina, and E. L. James is the furthest thing from Tolstoy. Check out the trilogy and tell me what you think.
After I finished reading the books I experienced a twinge of disappointment that the trilogy ended. But I am excited to inform you...there's going to be a movie y'all!! Who should play Christian? Team Hemsworth!!!
Have you read the trilogy? Did you enjoy it? What are you reading now?
