If you are like me who is dangerously too curious to the prejudice of her own good, safety and general peace of mind, then go ahead and read the incredibly bestselling book on the planet right now.  Now that the caveat has been put in order, allow me to express my attempt to pacify my disappointed logical self.

Here is the conversation between curious self (CS) and logical self (LS):

CS:  Hey cool 50shades twitter contest!

LS:  Contests again?  You have no shame showing to the world you have nothing else to do but hang around twitter and hope something good like a contest appears on your timeline.

CS:  You liked the 1Q84 Murakami we won the last time!

LS:  :s Whatever!  We have law books to read!

3 hours later

CS:  Hala! We won a copy of Fifty Shades of Grey!  Yayeers!  You know what its about?

LS:  Huffington post said its “mommy porn” Twilight fan…. Peste! Twilight fanfiction!  No we are not reading that!  We hate Bella Swan!

CS:  But its allover social media.  We’ve been reading erotica before we got hold of a real.. you know.. Wouldn’t hurt to skim through.  We dont have to pay for anything anyway.

LS:  We will only waste time.  Time that ought to be devoted to something less important like hmmm prelim exams?

CS:  We can manage, besides you get to rest for a while and not have to think about permissive joinders versus class suits.

LS:  Well any reading can improve the vocabulary as well as lengthen your attention span.. I guess its ok.

After 3 days of reading the full Fifty Shades trilogy.

LS:  Pwe!  I can’t believe you made me think about the very bothering misplaced British words in that poorly written American book!  You should have just reconnected with the Fabio paperbacks you so loved 15 years ago!

CS:  I’m sorry.  Hormones were really raging when I read the books.  I couldn’t put it down.

LS:  Come to think of it, you knew it was too Twilight the movie and you still finished it.. all three of it!  If it was kilig factor you wanted, Harlequin romance seem nobel prize worthy compared to that!

CS:  James Deen porn parodies seemed like an Oscar movie in contrast to the sleazy scenes on the book!  I hate myself!

LS:  Please play my I-told-you-so spiel.

CS:  Did we learn something from the books though?

LS:  Yes!  Never trust the opinion of the internet generation!  They tend to echo mindless memes.  Steer faraway from anything perpetuated by celebrities on social networking sites – they are paid for that!  If you have to stick you nosy self on pop culture, make sure you get paid or at least get gratification for it.  

Do not reward your epic curiosity fail with a blogpost!  And just stick to real porn parodies when the hormones come to attack you again!
