The other reason I haven't posted in the last week is because...(OMG, so embarassing, seriously, I'm trying to screw up my courage but this is SO LAME) I've been reading the Twilight books. Nonstop. For the last week.
Here's the thing, and by the way the rest of this post will have nothing to do with fattie-related stuff. Anyway, I'm in grad school STUDYING LITERATURE. I read heavy, excellent shit all day long. For so many reasons, these vampire crack books are problematic--poorly written, uncomfortable messages to send to teenagers, etc. (Like, hey, your boyfriend stalks you! He must lurve you super hardcore! Go get married!) But I don't care. It's kind of like how, after eating beans and veggies for a month, you can eat some pizza and not feel guilty.
Anyway, one of the reasons I mention this is because if you too have read these books and been unable to put them down, check out these hiLARious recaps. I was reading them last night and giggling uncontrollably, wishing I had someone to share them with.
That's all. I'll be weighing in again Monday, and I will get back to posting about things other than sparkly vampires.
