50 Shades of Grey...Meh...

I have to admit that all of this buzz about 50 Shades of Smut Grey has me interested.
I had no intention of reading until a friend texted me "This book is so awesome...but...I don't think you would like it."
Say what? I am no prude, little missy. 
Because I am immature and defensive, I demanded to know why. "Well...just read it before you judge it." 
"JUDGE IT?" 
When did I become Judgie McJudgerson?
Then, I remembered all of the snide comments I had been making about 50 Shades of Get A Life Grey.
Ok, it's true. I don't want to read it. I'm not going to read it. My life is already packed with enough sexy to make Hugh Hefner blush. Totally true.
BUT! I will share a book that I think is sexy and HAWT!

  3. So great! I have no interest in 50 Shades of Gray, either. I have no problems with smut/porn/whathaveyou, but I figure that anything that's this mainstream and based on Twilight fan fiction is probably not as good as people think. I get the impression that people think they are somehow being subversive by reading it (especially in public, or broadcasting that they're reading it on various social media sites). Meh is right.

    **I'm getting off my soapbox now.**

  11. Bwuahahahahahahaha!!!!!!!

    That last one sent me into spasmic fits of laugh coughing.

    You know my manly man actually has WATCHED the Colin Firth version with that with me a few times? He thinks all real men should be gentrified.

    I say "Capital, Mr. Finch Rest, capital idea!"

  12. I read the first few chapters and thought the plot was so thin and the writing so terrible that it DESERVED the name mommy porn. Seriously.. *ding dong* "hey pizza guy" "hey sexy lady.. want to tip me?" Brown-chicken-brown-cow.

    REPEAT.

    I don't get it.. Are women that repressed that a book like this is suddenly their green light to be sexual? Scratches head.

    I like your eye candy much more!

  13. I am more than halfway to death, and refuse to spend what little time I have left reading something that isn't well-crafted. So there will be no fifty shades of what the hey? (That's what DL calls it.)

  16. I thought I was the only one who did not read or want to read this book. I heard about it over a year ago and it is driving me crazy that after all this time they are still talking about it...it is now the fastest selling paperback! More than Harry Potter!

  20. I knew we were kindred spirits! I refuse to read it -- life is too short to read crap. I'll just stalk all my new favorite blogs instead. ;-) Especially when they have eye candy like THIS post! LOL!
    Fun meeting up at Haven -- keep in touch!

  22. Now that's a sexy book! As for 50 Shades of Grey, I have better things to do than to waste my time reading poorly written trash! Just my opinion. Not that it matters.

  23. I know, I know. I've been absent. But that last month of my pregnancy was hot and miserable (not hot in a good way.) I was either drooling while sleep scrolling through Pinterest or letting the kids scream and watch the Disney channel. It was lovely, really.
    So, three things:
    1) I refuse to read this book. With a title like that I was hoping for so much more. Grey is my favorite color and they've RUINED it. Dang kids.
    2) Honest to chocolate, my hubs does dishes and laundry more than I do. I think he knows my sanity is already hanging on a thread and anything else might upset the balance.
    And 3) Your naked post is probably the best post. Ever. You'd think Lady Stepford would have been the one to gawk and Abby Athlete would have been the one to look away. Weird.
    Oh, and P.S. Your painted dressers are GOOOOOOOORGEOUS! (Did I mention my favorite color is grey?)
