How's your week going? Got up to anything?
I finished The Girl Who Played with Fire. Like Girl with The Dragon Tattoo, it's a lot of fun. Lisbeth's secrets are slowly revealed. I think she's a great anti-hero. At turns silent and violent but also incredibly intelligent and moralistic. She's one of the most refreshing and complex female characters we've seen in a long time. Although she's on my role models list, I do have one major criticism. Why does Lisbeth need to get a boob job at the beginning of this book? It makes no sense to me. It made my B cups angry. She was so perfectly empowering and awesome until that moment. You could argue the author was trying to make her more real, giving her self esteem issues to humanize. You could argue. But I'm just a little too disappointed to argue. If the book was written by a woman maybe it would be different...
Well that was my feminist rant for the day. I do recommend the book though. The boob job is rarely mentioned and has nothing to do with anything (which annoyed me even further. You just drop that in there for no reason?...ok no more ranting)
Now I'm on to the third book! I'll be sad when I'm done. Anyone else reading anything? Any suggestions?
Alright, let's get to the nails.
Enchanted Polish - Magical Mystery Tour
Is this not absolutely fricken amazing? :D
Look at it in the bottle! :O
Magical Mystery Tour is a truly magical multichrome.
Flashing purple, teal, blue and pink with tiny little holographic particles scattered throughout
No matter what the lighting this always looked like at least two colours at once.
Even in dim lighting, I swear! Absolute perfection!
I originally planned to do some nail art. But I couldn't bring myself to cover any of this beauty up.
What do you think? Magical and Mysterious?
Here's a little piece of jeebjeeb trivia for you. Magical Mystery Tour was the first ever album I bought with my own money. I think I was in grade 4. My dad was so excited. I didn't understand it at the time, but it was a big deal to him. I get it now. A rite of passage. I remember going to the record store and picking it out. Running home all excited to put it on. Then listening to it over and over again. I was obsessed with the Beatles as a child. OBSESSED. They were my number one till The Spice Girls came around :P Now I can't even listen to The Beatles anymore.
But every now and then I like to get a little nostalgic and slap on...
Have a great night and an awesome manicure.
