One of my favorite tracks on "I am Sasha Fierce" - partially because it's a catchy tune and partially because Beyonce correctly uses the subjunctive mood ("were" instead of "was"). But seriously ladies- have you ever thought about it? If you were a boy? Beyonce has. And so have I.
If I were a boy...
If I were a boy, I'd definitely ask me out for cocktails.

For a book premised upon the idea of isolating oneself from men to enable self-growth -- this book was entirely about men. It was like being back in middle school, sitting outside on the lawn during lunch, dying to escape into a daydream about horseback riding later that afternoon while my boy-crazy girlfriend du jour obsessed about every single male on campus. Enough already! If I wanted to read another book about women philosophizing about society's gender roles while simultaneously fixating over every man in the room, I'd pick up another Elizabeth Gilbert novel.
Yet for her lack of female focus and stream of consciousness literature review-style prose, Anderson does write very well and has some note-worthy (even if not novel) points, mainly that sex ends the conversation that is so important between two people getting to know each other. And hook-ups are the last place to look for real romance. Ladies: please tell me you knew this...

I was candidly reminded of my delinquence by the lovely Mel in boot camp this morning (who kicked my *ss in our pushup challenge, might I add). I have one book review on deck and a long-overdue update for you lovelies that will be up this weekend.
