Yeah. Wasn't sure about the open toe since I'm usually anti open toe in the winter, but the color, sparkle, and sale price got me. If the weather is bad, I can do boots until I get where I need to be.

This is a great list. And I'm glad he likes Let It Rock, 'cause it's awesome. Love the commentary about hip hop songs.

That made sense in the first book, but I had expected that to change, for Katniss to grow in that respect. I went into Catching Fire expecting to see Katniss have some role in the rebellions in the districts, not one of leadership, obviously, but I expected her to take an active part, even a tiny one. Instead she was completely clueless about everything that was going on.

There were moments in Mockingjay that had me thinking that was changing, but everytime I got excited, she was smacked back down, once again the completely reluctant hero, the rebels' pawn. I kept waiting for her to develop a sense of her own power, to enjoy it just a tiny bit, and it never happened. And then that awesome scene with Coin near the end happens, and...oh, we get to be inside Katniss traumatized mind again instead of seeing the aftermath.

And I can't help thinking that that's not how it all would have happened if Katniss had been a man.
I didn't like Mockingjay. Katniss being so utterly useless and hiding in cupboards drove me nuts. I have so many issues with that book lol. Gale, Peeta, Prim, her mother, Snow, the epilogue...

I enjoyed the first two books but I do think it gets a bit too much hype/credit than it's deserved *looks around in fear*. Every dystopian gets compared to it now and there are other (better) books out there. In my humble opinion

But any series that encourages reading is great. Im really excited about the movie - love the trailer music.
Yes to all this. I haven't even finished Mockingjay yet and I have been reading it for weeks. I keep getting sidetracked by other books because it just doesn't hold my attention like the first two.
I read the first two in 48 hours. It took me 3 weeks to finish the third. I loved the series as a whole though.


My fat thumb will make mistakes.

Midnight snow shoveling is interesting. Had to do it now, though, so the morning people have a clear sidewalk.

I love that Todd's putting up these old "from the vaults" videos. I'd forgotten about "Let it Rock" - such great energy in that song. I just may get addicted to it again.

ETA: And who doesn't love a video that includes the lines, "I drank the Kool-Aid. You can't stop me!"?

I fell really hard on my butt last night after dyeing my hair and am thankful I fell how I did or I would've easily broken my coccyx. I have realized there is no good way to make a sore butt feel better. Feel free to laugh at my expense.

Am I the only one annoyed by the uselessness dead end that is the profile page? I've mentioned it before, but it's worse now because before I would get around the uselessness by clicking on my name in a thread and be given the option to view my posts. I could then view my threads. Now I can click to view my posts, but with no option to view just the topics I started. So, I have to go through the search to find an old thread. The app has the option, but the regular page should have it, too.

I want to see Extremely Close and Incredibly Loud.

I bet it is the PERFECT movie to see if you grew-up in the Financial District, lost a father at a young age and are currently battling depression. I better bring a stack of towels.

I feel like utter crap and car hunting stress isn't making it any better. Only 4 more hours of work to go...

So, having made three batches of marshmallows yesterday, I was quite sure that my candy thermometer was just fine. Well, having made three batches of caramels today, no, no it's not!!!! All the batches are cool now and I have brittle caramels instead of soft, chewy ones. Water is boiling and the thermometer says:




**** YOU, CANDY THERMOMETER! And FML, two pints of cream and almost a pound of butter down the drain!!!! *pulls hair out*

Pretend Saria and I are your movie buddies and we're watching it with you. That means that you must leave the seats on both sides empty

I have my period. I'm tired and crampy and have no motivation. I've been sitting in front of the computer for hours and have essentially done nothing.

I got up and made sauce. Now I'm back to sitting here doing nothing.

I have come to the conclusion the only way I will be able to get everything done is to wake up at 5. And I don't want to.

My mom is bound to like the one batch I left. She's got this weird fixation with all foods being firm. Like, she thinks flan is too soft, and it's one of the firmest of the baked custards! I do not want hard flan, thank you. She reminisces about some cream pie type thing she ate in the DR and how it was firm and I'm fairly convinced now that this thing was probably a pie with waaaaaay too much gelatin.

If someone were to find a package from New York at their door, they should know that it's only like part one thanks in part to stupid candy thermometers.
