Trying to translate a Spanish article on avant-garde fashion that I ripped out of a magazine on the airplane. Random.

Just finished "Middlesex" by Jeffrey Eugenides -- it was excellent. It won the Pulitzer for fiction in 2003.

The author of this book came to speak to our english class last year. She was so cute and really nice.

Anyway, I'm reading Extremly Loud and Incredible Close by Jonathan Safran Foer.

I just finished that too but I was a bit dissappointed with it. I'd been meaning to read it all year but to me it seemed like a rather long explations about why brothers/sisters/cousins shouldn't marry. I didn't find Calliope/Cal likable, and while I found the genetic stuff and information about hermaphrodites interesting, I felt like I could have gotten the same info by reading an article- I didn't have to read a 500 page book. When i finished it I was supprised it had been so highly praised. It wasn't a bad book-it was well written. Maybe my expectations were too high. But I know a lot of other people who also loved it. Oh well, different strokes for different folks!
