Okay, okay. I had to see what all of the fuss was about. As it turns out, Fifty Shades of Grey is as poorly written as everyone has told me, and it's HILARIOUS. Here are some lines that caused me to laugh out loud.

  • She’s articulate, strong, persuasive, argumentative, beautiful – and she’s my dearest, dearest friend.
  • I roll my eyes at myself. Get a grip, Steele.
  • Double crap – me and my two left feet!
  • I’m much more of a curl-up-with-a-book-in-a-comfy-chair-by-the-fire kind of girl.
  • His voice is warm and husky like dark melted chocolate fudge caramel… or something.
  • Is Grey? My subconscious asks me, her eyebrow figuratively raised. I slap her down.

  • I'd rather be working for a paycheck than waiting to win the lottery.

I'm also not thrilled that Harry knew everything about Helena Ravenclaw, somehow, when in the book it's a big reveal and there's a whole story and the Bloody Baron gets explained.

  • All of the houses at the Cape (at least it seems like) have shingle siding.
  • I felt like things were closer together at the Cape, in that each town was compact and you didn't have to go far for things, usually. You could walk to ice cream. Unlike MDI, where everything is spread out.
  • I like that MDI has Acadia on it; it provides for a lot of recreation and beauty and awesomeness.

Because earlier today my sister was looking at shoes and therefore I had to go look at these gorgeous shoes, which I have no place to wear other than prom, which caused me to look at prom dresses online that might match them.

  • I'm not really sure what the big deal with prom is. It's just a dance. It's not going to define your existence. Why put so much importance on it?
  • I don't want to be one of those girls. You know the kind I'm talking about. The girls who buy the prom editions of magazines and obsess about what dress they're going to wear and act as if prom is the biggest and only important night of their lives. If I ever become like that, there is clearly something wrong and you might as well just shoot me and get it over with.
