Losing My Chuck Virginity.

Remember what I was planning to do? Well, it failed. I was so close to getting a place but damn it. Mama sent me to the place around 9.30am, giving me enough time to get to my 10.30 class.

But

That class got cancelled. So I took my sweet time, visiting the uni's bookstore and the first thing I saw was the "Clearance Section". Novels going on from 9 to 13 ringgit each. Which is around ... 1/4-1/3 of the normal price for a paperback book.

Malaysians aren't known for being big readers. Well, there's more non-readers than readers. Or perhaps that's the case for English books but I was the only one at that section, looking for a book and everyone else was busy looking at textbooks. God people, you should get your priorities right.

I picked up a copy of Chuck Palahniuk's Rant, breaking my Chuck virginity which I think amused Mozart a bit when I texted him that. I've only read the first chapter but it seems promising. Gruesome too.

The book cheered me up a bit from the depression that set upon me from the rejection. Fast forward 2 hours later I was in a better mood after a nice lunch with friends, contemplating if the 2 o'clock class would be on.

Then

I became a girl again, made shopping as a therapy. I bought a pretty grey scarf and two small clip on bows for my hair. A pink one with a dazzly center and a black one with polka dots. I got the first one in my hair right now, feeling prettier than normal even though no one can see me.

Two more classes and I'm done for the week, ready for my friend's invitation on Saturday which I hope will be serving her mom's tasty smackalicious, lip licking spaggeti.

I'm currently on page 370 of the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.

Hahaha. Well, Jodie doesn't like it. Hmm,the first book takes some time to really become interesting. I read it till the 4th chapter, put it down for about 3 months before picking it up again. I got hooked. I'm rereading it now. It all depends on if you end up liking the first book, you know? Ask me, I'll tell you to read it and be patient. :P

Oh, damn. I was hoping that "the girl with the dragon tattoo" was a euphemism.

Your blog is fabulous, by the way. I love your abortion post - very well written.

Chuck Palahniuk! i heard about him only when he showed up in one of my attempts to "find out who you write like". haha.
i researched him and immediately read one of his works: Guts, which is also incidentally the most famous, i believe. i was hooked. my friend got a copy of Haunted (where Guts can be found) and i've shamelessly asked to borrow it. heehee. you should tell me what you think of Rant. :D

@Lemons: <3333

@ishashime: Haha I got him too. I haven't read the book yet, getting stuck into the Millenium trilogy. I'll remember to tell you what I think once I read it.
