50 Shades of Grey

It’s occurred to me, that I haven’t produced anything of substance in the last few days. I’ve been writing down my giving on the back of an old envelope. And….Holy Cannoli. Today. Is. Day. 29.  What?! How can it be?? If you have no idea what I’m talking about, you could read the post I wrote(Click right here baby)about the challenge I gave myself. Or I could just sum it up. I gave for 29 straight days. Over and above my normal giving. And I wrote about it. I still need to post about the last few days, but I’m running a bit late today. I could fool you into thinking I’ve been working my poor little fingers to the nub. Out delivering meals to the sick, and volunteering at blood drives. (All honorable things, and I did still give, but my gifts were not quite so time-consuming as those)….(and certainly not a good enough excuse for me not putting up a blog lately)

But…I’m figuring out my dear readers are smarter than the average joe. And it could ruin my Karma to attempt blogging trickery. Which would be sad. So here it is:

I’ve been lost in 50 Shades of Grey. It’s a deliciously naughty book series. A trilogy. I’m having flashbacks of being camped out on our couch for a solid four days devouring the Twilight Series. Those authors are so stinkin smart. They artfully end the book at a spot that no curious reader is able to deal with, in any other way than to just buy the next one on the list. 50 shades reminds me of Twilight, with the star crossed lovers, who should probably just shake hands and part ways if they knew what was good for em.  But in contrast, it was NOT written with the average teen in mind. O no sirree. It is most definitely for adults. In fact, I think it may be for 40-year-old stay at home moms who wipe noses and chauffeur their children around for fun.

I HAVE been giving. But I’ve also been reading. And deciding that this guy is probably what Christian Grey looks like.

Do NOT read this book if you are someone pressed for time. Or if you can't handle explicit, OMG...scenarios.

I promise to write a proper blog entry soon. Today is Day 29!!! I’m off to give something really awesome today.

  1. Dear Carr,


    Love Dotty xxx

    P.S. He was the reason I learned how to put pictures on my blog. 🙂
    P.P.S. I’ve been trying to get him for my Collected Americans collection but no luck so far.

  2. Robyn, I think this book is a bit “spicier” than Twilight! {{Insert porno music here}}. Hehe! I haven’t downloaded it yet. But I am very curious so the Amazon charge will show up on my Visa bill soon.

  3. My best friend from high school called me last month RAVING about these books so I picked up the 1st one but haven’t cracked it yet. I have read an excerpt online and oh-me-oh-my it was NNNNNaughty with a capital N…which is just fine by me! 😉

    my friend swears up and down that there is a true love story in there somewhere but i am having a hard time believing that based on what i read, but have decided to reserve judgement until i read it. looks like i will have to move it to the top of the book pile so i can know what all the fuss is about! i keep hearing about this book EVERYWHERE! 🙂

  4. I keep picturing Christian Bale circa “American Psycho” as the Grey character (minus the murderous tendencies, of course) but he might be a little too old. . .

In the latest scientific study, people who comment on blogs are 96% sexier than those who don't.
