I know I know.

Man, I've lost the will to blog. I don't even update my sidebar anymore! I didn't realize it until the other night when Celia got all up in my fizzace, accusing me of watching Labyrinth without her. ABVIOUSLY untrue, of course--I just hadn't changed the picture since I last watched it at her house. I've watched a lot of good movies since then. And read a lot of good books since then. And purchased a lot of cool stuff since then. And gotten sick a lot of times since then. And done a lot of things since then.

So, 8:30 in the morning and I'm drinking a Sprite. I'm pretty sure I'd be an alcoholic if I ever drank anything interesting.

You know I love books (do you know that I love books?) but I'm often too sheepish to seriously recommend them--but this time is different. Ok so--if you want a good book, read Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. I read it based on the recommendation from fellow blogger Nikki--THANK YOU NIKKI! It's definitely a fun book, not a literary masterpiece--but lately I've really been in the mood for fun books. And this book totally captivated me. And Katy. And Mom and Christy, as soon as I give it to them. I'm dying for the next one to come out!

One of my favorite things when I'm reading a book is to cast the movie version. It's fun to talk to Christy and Katy about, because Anderson girls KNOW actors--it's one of our few shared skills. Casting Hunger Games--man. The possiblities are endless. (This is for Katy--Ben Barnes as Gale and William Moseley as Peeta? Or is that too gimmicky?) Speaking of movie versions of amazing books, I am getting a little bit annoyed that The Road continues to not be released. It's only going to be the BEST MOVIE EVER. Oh man. SOMEONE deserves a pat on the back for casting Viggo Mortensen as The Man. I can pretty much cry just thinking about it. That's another book you should read--but it's not for the faint of heart.

Saturday was a very disappointing night. After Bombay House (ok that wasn't disappointing) we tried to go see Taken TWICE but it was just totally sold out. ANNOYING. All I want is to see Liam Neeson kill some bad guys and be totally wickedly awesome instead of the old sage character. It's going to be SO COOL.

Ok. Back to work. See ya!

I'm so excited to read that book. I just started a book I was excited about-only to discover that the author-while good at non-fiction is freakishly annoying as fiction writer. Can't wait to get my hands on your book. Sorry about Taken.

So shall I buy the book for Christy and I to read? It seems that without Katy around I can't check out books from our library. Well, maybe I should get my own card? So happy to have you back in blogger world. I've missed you a lot. Hope you get to see Taken for FHE? Humm, maybe I should suggest that to dad?

Man, I've been putting my mind grapes to work and I STILL can't think of a better cast for your projected movie, but nor can I agree with your casting choices! This is my new definition of hell.
