things of little relevance

Some of you may know that one of my favorite pastimes is reading and laughing at the personals in the New York Review of Books. When I was in London, I learned many things. One of my major realizations is that I am not original in finding NYRB and LRB personals funny. Not only is there a collection of LRB personals published—They Call Me Naughty Lola—there is also a sequel coming out around Valentine’s Day 2010—Sexually, I’m More of a Switzerland (I really hope my future boyfriend is stalking me).

NYRB vs. LRB Personals

For me, it is a tough draw between the two. While the LRB personals are certainly more ridiculous, the writers are aware that they are snarky and sarcastic, thus the humor is intentional. Personally, I enjoy laughing at people when they are earnest, so my heart remains with the NYRB.

The best motivation I’ve had to join twitter. Too bad NYRBPersonals doesn’t exist…yet.
