life isn't all ha ha hee hee you know...

i have been coming across some of the most entertaining novels of late, and they've all been written by south east asian (mostly indian) women! it's actually really weird how i've just been stumbling upon these novels one after another. it's like my brain is in full deshi mode (which it always is anyway) because everything i've been reading lately has been deshi-related and i'm absolutely lovin' it!

if you look at my reading list down below you'll see that i'm currently reading babyji by abha dawesar. oh.my.god. it's scandalous! and i mean that in a good way. it's about a 16 year old girl in delhi who discovered her sexuality and then proceeded to have affairs with not one, not two, but THREE different women of all different ages, at the same time. can i just say that this chick is getting more pussy at her age than i am at mine? excuse my french, but there's just no other way to say it. at anyrate, thank goodness it's fiction cuz otherwise i'd be really fucking jealous. ok, nevermind that, i am jealous!

but it's a great read! the character development of the main character anamika is ferocious. i'm half way through it and am sorta sad to be nearing the end, but i highly recommend it! the funny thing is that i only found out about it through a teeny little ad in the latest curve magazine that i was browsing at borders to kill time before having to be at pool league last week! what a find, i must say.

the title of this entry comes from the most recent book i finished called life isn't all ha ha hee hee by meera syal, which i came across just browsing through amazon. the title is a classic! my dad used to say that to us all the time if my sis and i were unusually boisterous or cackling madly about some silly thing or another. i couldn't believe that the phrase actually made it's way to the title of a book! so i absolutely had to buy it. and it's a great read too.

i love south east asian women.

now if i could only find one to bring home to my mother... ;)

anyway, gotta run. i'm off to catch pamela means at schuba's tonight. cheerio!
