Late on the fifty shades of grey uptake.


Despite it outselling Harry Potter and receiving huge amounts of praise for liberating women who enjoy reading on the tube, I am half way through this book and am so far failing to appreciate what it has to offer. Firstly, I am confused by what message Mrs James is attempting to give to the apparently huge numbers of deprived female souls around the world. The main character is becoming more confident because of a man whom she is submissive to. I'm not one for feminism but I don't particularly feel that this is doing much sisterhood. Secondly, I feel the author is channeling her own perhaps younger awkward self which makes me feel uncomfortable for the sake of her husband who the book is dedicated to at the beginning. Who am I to judge though perhaps she has installed a red room underneath her house and will be appearing on Grand Designs shortly as Kevin McCloud quakes in his work boots. Thirdly, whilst I do recognise how gloriously emancipated women who read this book on public transport now are, my friend was sat next to someone the other day who had covered the book cover in wrapping paper. If everyone's so incredibly desperate to read about boring Anastacia's escapades, as she suddenly becomes exciting because she is dominated by a man with mummy issues then why they don't just watch porn, instead of having to grit their teeth through what is largely a poorly written drivel ridden book. One which only gets exciting when the author lives vicariously through a parallel unborn version of herself.

GOP

grand old party - sounds like fun. Concern that majority of population don't know what it stands for. Similar situation to Tea Party controversy, which considering America has very little history to learn about anyway is worriying. Rick Santorum has 7 children so he has lots of heirs, which for those who like continuity could be a good thing, could have a Bush-Bush style re run. However both him and Mitt Romney need 40% of the Hispanic vote to get into the white house, however as the CNN website states neither candidate bothered to visit the Latino rich towns in Iowa, I admire their ambivalence shows confidence *cough* dellusion. Perhaps their aids had simply forgotten to point out that there are Latino people beyond the northern borders of New Mexico, easy assumption to make...

Also has it not occurred to the republicans that OIW could also stand for Obama is working?

Interested to see how putting forward unelectable candidates works out for the republicans. Disappointed that this year there may be no teenage daughter pregnant scandal, so the election may not be working it's way into the pages of Heat so it's doubtful i'll be reading much more about it. Mitt Romney is now the shining republican beacon. He is different to all other candidates ever, he has a controversial new idea to create more jobs and be optimistic. The super successful and flamboyant ray of sunshine from last time, John Mccain fully supports Mitt, so he's got some real wind behind him. O.I.W is really taking off as a slogan as well, probably because it's so witty, the acronym stans for 'Obama isn't working.' You can donate to the cause on the website, which is paid for by dear Mitt, i'm lost as to whether the money goes back to Mitt, or to Obama, to encourage him to start working again?
