VERY IMPORTANT NEWS

While I was in Cleveland a week ago, after a long day of visiting family and watching three hour long musicals and having dinner with a friend of my stepmother who told me she read all three Fifty Shades books in one weekend while I bit my tongue until it bled, I made a video of my spare notes from Chapters 9-10 in my parents basement. It's not my best work, I have to say - I was tired (see previous sentence), I really didn't have a lot of notes from those chapters because almost nothing happened in them, and I found a giant fish pillow which was very distracting.
 
 I promise the next one will be better. I have deliberately left some things out of my review because I wanted to yell about them on camera. And James packed the last three chapters with sentences that are so poorly constructed they should be taken out behind the shed and shot. It should be a good time.

In completely unrelated but VERY VERY important news, SATURDAY IS MY BIRTHDAY. I think I may have already gotten my best present already - the hockey strike ended this weekend and it seems there will be some games this year after all, great news since I have serious concerns about being able to watch hockey next season and it might be my last chance. Then again, StereoNinja is being very secretive about something he's mailed to my office, so maybe not. I hope it's sex toys. And of course, if anyone out there could convince Hannah Hart to tweet me a personal birthday greeting you would make my entire life. But just so we're all clear, the important part of today's post is that everyone is made aware of my upcoming birthday. Saturday.

Happy birthday for Saturday, I personally think that all the best people were born on January 12th (ahem, yeah, Saturday is my birthday too). Have a good day, hope you get lots of pressies.

I hope you have a very happy birthday on Saturday.
And I now want a dress made out of Hello Kitty duct tape.

Happy birthday! Have an incredible time. I, like you, am thrilled to have a half-season of hockey - FINALLY - despite Gary Bettman!

Gah! I feel your pain. Both my sisters spent our summer holiday reading the books. One sister in particular had NO sense of humour about it whatsoever (I genuinely believe reading these books has had a detrimental effect on her personality) and protested that the ‘story’ was really good.
She’s decided to read the Twilight series next… *bangs head against wall*

I was in Waterstones yesterday and saw the dreaded Fifty Shades game!!!! Couldn’t bring myself to go in for a closer look though!

PS More hints about moving eh? Tease.

I have got you a present. It was in the "Pound shop" (trashy cheap shops in the UK) and I saw it and thought of you. Yep - 50 Shades his and her perfume set. I think it has BODYWASH in it.
