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!)
