I laughed so hard! Brilliant!

Okay, that opening paragraph was hilarious:
I growl with frustration at my reflection in the mirror. Damn my hair – it’s fifty shades of fucked up. The situation I’m in is fifty shades of fucked up. I’m supposed to be studying for my finals; my roommate, Kathleen, should be the one fussing with her hair in front of the mirror right now. Instead, I’m trying to brush my hair into submission. Why is my hair so kinky? I need to stop sleeping with it wet, because it always ends up out of control. As I brush my long, brown hair, the girl in the mirror with blue eyes too big for her head stares back at me. Wait...I don’t have blue eyes! Then I realize I haven’t been looking into the mirror. I’ve been staring at a poster of Kristen Stewart for five minutes. My own hair is actually fine.

Lyndi "I’ve been staring at a poster of Kristen Stewart for five minutes. My own hair is actually fine." totally won me over, but it just gets better and better. I can't wait for Chapter 4 next week! =D

Experiment BL626 I would never read 50 Shades, but I would totally read AND buy 51 Shades. Is it weird that I want this author to be richer than Meyer and James combined?
