Was talking to Lightning via Goodol chat (that’s Google for you) last night and we ended up talking about 50 Shades of Gray, a novel by a certain E.L. James which, fortunately, I have not yet read. And have no plans of ever reading at all. The following conversation has been trimmed for maximum effect. This conversation, by the way, occurred half past midnight uhm, a while ago. Whatever. 12.37 AM.
Lightning: Well there’s this book entitled 50 Shades of Grey or as my old Speech teacher likes to call it 50 Shades of Crap. Haha.
Me: what about it.
L: It’s about this story of a girl and a boy… woman and man. And it’s a BDSM story. Tapos it’s been labeled “mommy porn” and it’s a best seller.
But goodness gracious. IT’S HORRIBLE.
And I quote one sentence from an article.
“It’s Twilight without the sparkles”
M: hahahaha. eto na naniningin na ko ng rebyu (I’m already lookin’ at reviews.)
it has a movie?
L: … In the works.
M: oh. okay.
L: But goodness. Can you imagine? Badly written… text about BDSM into a movie. u_u
M: sad world we live in.
L: Very sad. Grabe talaga. Haha. Sabi nga nung isang review na nabasa ko (One of the reviews I read was all), “There are a lot of erotic works the past years and this is what sells?”
M: maybe ’cause it’s like twaylaaaayt.
L: For older people.
To think some of the teens look at their moms like O.o for reading and liking it.
[large chunk removed from here. ke.]
M: AND IT WAS PUBLISHED BY VINTAGE. O_O
I AM ASHAMED VINTAGE.
WHAT. I DID NOT.
SHUN ALL VINTAGE. T-T
M: NUUU. I CAN’T SHUN ALL VINTAGE!
MURAKAMI IS VINTAGE!!!
Shun almost all. XDDD
hahahahaha. selective shunning. XD
[another large chunk gets cut off. huu.]
M: from the looks of it, yes.
too bad vintage published it.
oh my god.
still can’t believe.
my respect for you..
L: Has dwindled. Yes.
Parang you think, “What the hell were they thinking?”
L: Grabe talaga. u_u Maybe they were drunk.
threatened into submission.
“I’LL FLOOD YOU WITH MORE BAD WRITING IF YOU NO PUBLISH THIS!!!”
That was… a real threat to me. :))
M: hahahaha. and so vintage had to make the greatest sacrifice.
L: XDDD I love how you just… HAHA. Made the greatest funniest excuse. :))
For the good of all publishing. :))
M: exactly. ^^
lol. thaaanks. i try~ XDDD
Hay… If we look at it though it’s the capitalist blah blah.
But I like your version better. :))
M: of course, sa tunay na buhay (in real life), it’s a capitalist ploy.
but since my logic is soundproof, i didn’t think of that. XDD
L: Yay for soundproof logic! XD
M: it makes the world a better place. XDD
The rest of the conversation was just us singing ‘Heal The World’ and talking about kung-fu tea ceremony and a lot of other random whatnots. But the point is, well, there’s no point, really. I just found it really funny. I am amazed at the randomness we spout.
