It's Official - I know What I Am Doing This Week

I now know what I will be for doing the next few days...

The official two and half minute Hunger Games trailer came out today and after I calmed my heart palpitations and stopped screaming like a tween at a Bieber concert, I logged onto my Kindle and purchased the books to read again. This week, I will be letting the 14 year old within call the shots.  After all, "age appropriate" is in the eyes of the beholder!

Last year, I devoured the first of three Young Adult Fiction novels within a 24 hour period, forgoing sleep and a professional appearance for work to make it happen. I borrowed from the library last year, but I now realize that I need to read these books again and I need to do so immediately.


This trailer is SOOO exciting....but leaves me with so many questions:
A) Where can I buy Elizabeth Banks' pink suit and fascinator hat?
B) Why is District 11 is whiter than an episode of Seinfeld?
C) How good Lenny Kravitz does look?!
D) Not a question, just a comment: I am not mistaken this time, that man in the glittery satin suit with a blue pony tail IS Stanley Tucci!
E) Why does Woody Harrelson's version of Haymitch Abernathy look more like an Amish Randy Quaid from Kingpin than a alcoholic but still badass Hunger Games champion? 

And finally - who is ready to (re)read these bitches with me?  Only 4 months and 11 days until movie time and I would much rather read this than talk about Justin Bieber's paternity suit.

(Note: I still plan to read about how Kim Kardashian is fucking up her "career" and life to make myself feel superior.  I mean, she may have more money, a better figure, and more twitter followers than me...but I have a way better shot of finding true, lasting love and respect!)

  1. I am so with you.  I just borrowed from our library the audio version.  Finished Hunger Games like 2 weeks ago, and just barely got of the hold list for catching fire.  I've put mockingjay on hold.  Only 26 people ahead of me.  but the library has 18 copies of it so that is good.  Like you could give a rats ass.  I watched the trailers today too.  this is going to be a long time till march.

  4. I had book 1 and 3 from the library, but was on hold for Book 2.  I decided that I couldn't wait any longer so I went to the 24hour grocery store and bought it from their book section!  

    This is going to be a VERY long winter! :)
