Salman Rushdie's Wife

There is a nice piece on Lakshmi Rushdie in the UK's Sunday Times. Click here for the info.

She gets a lot of criticism from the literati for being young and a bit "vapid." Among her sins? She is only 35, uses "dude" a lot in sentences, is a beauty model, and listens to hip-hop.

I for one am on her side. She seems like a very bright and energetic woman with plenty of self-confidence and a bright outlook on life. And she won me over with this simple yet very honest quote: “I think that people make the mistake of thinking women are attracted to money and success, but what we’re really attracted to is men who’ve done something interesting.”

She could be a physicist and NOT use the word "Dude" as much and people would still give her shit for marrying an older guy.

I liked that article! Thanks for linking!

Hey, I'm just thrilled silly to read that someone who's only a couple of years younger than I am is being criticized for being so "young!"

Made my day!!!

Now... if only I could draw that same criticism (without having to ditch my man for a sugar-gramps, that is!)
