Captain’s Log 4,412
Certain folks out there will get a hoot out of this. A hoot. Good lord, I sound like someone who lives in a remote cabin in the north woods of Wisconsin. Hoot? Yes, I do use that word every now and then. Anyway….on to the Shakespearean fun.
I tossed back my mane of hair, my mouth agape with the howl of mine primal heart. I thought it was a hoot.
This was a hoot too. I bought it on a whim yesterday and read it last night. Don’t be impressed. It’s about 35 pages long. 35 very funny pages.
Actually, if you don’t read much, this parody wouldn’t be a hoot. It wouldn’t even be mildly amusing. The book pokes huge fun of famous authors in a derivative, spanking in the elevator kind of way. I am thinking of writing my own parody called Fifty Shades of Henna. I could set it in a hair salon. I’m sure Joanie would help me with the finer details. I don’t know much about the sexual potential of mixing colors, etc.
There are other Fifty Shade titles that also made me laugh. I am guessing their content.
Fifty Shades of Beige – growing up in Norway
Fifty Shades of Lame – the life of Lindsay Lohan
Fifty Shades of Black & Blue – the life of a professional kick boxer
Fifty Shades of Earl Grey – the life a British slutty pie
Actually, Big Sister Mia and I went to Costco the other day. She said she wanted Fifty Shades of Grey. She headed off for the restroom and I found the books. I tossed it into her cart. She said, “Do they have the rest?” Sure enough. She bought all three…..AND….she is planning to read them out of her regular rotation. She has this enormously complex system of storing and reading books. Most of the books she buys now will be read 18 months from now. But not these. They got a line pass to move to the front.
It’s Freakish Tuesday at the museum AGAIN. June is always a huge month, and with Steampunk already breaking attendance records, this will be quite a day. I doubt if I will even have a moment in my office. We will spend all day policing the floor as security guards. Not fun. Not a good use of anyone’s time.
