It may surprise you to learn this, but I totally *loved* The Hunger Games, Catching Fire, and Mockingjay (end sarcasm font). Well, not Mockingjay as much, but this post isn't a book (or trilogy) review. Maybe I'll get there sometime.
I read several reviews for The Hunger Games, and something about this review caught my attention.
It seems awfully strange that I'm doing two GBE posts back to back, but that's just because I was uber lazy last week and didn't get my post up until yesterday. And today, well, I'm thinking about our upcoming trip and this sounds like a fun way to get it out there.
We are going to Europe! I'm spending a week in an English immersion program for native Spanish speakers. Since I'm volunteering, my room & board is complimentary (um, holla!). Hubs will meet me when my week there is up, and we'll gallivant around Europe until it's time to come home. We'll be gone for three weeks (and have a house sitter, so don't even think of coming over to "help yourself," creepy internet peeps) and are planning to visit at least 3 countries. And maybe 6. Anyway.
I'm good with shenanigans. It's almost like this topic was *made* for me. My good buddy Green Goose alludes to a bit of Shenaniganery in a post she put up in the last couple of weeks. I've been patient, waiting for her to tell "her side" of the story, but alas, she's waiting too long and it's appropriate for this prompt for GBE2.
Ten bucks says GG puts up her post tomorrow. Update: and here it is: The Forest Incident. Someone owes me ten bucks.
Today's Thinky post requires audience participation (thanks, Lou, for a great phrase!). I can't wait to see what you think.
I've been pondering about the difference between writers and bloggers, I asked my Facebook friends, and now I'd like to pose the question to you. I realize that most of you who read my ramblings are one or the other or both.
First of all, any book with Poo in the title is likely to get my attention. I may be chronologically an adult, but talking about poo still makes me giggle. And since I'm a bit of a blurter, I will also talk about it in inappropriate situations. Yay me! Or something.
I have been so busy flitting to and fro that I have all but neglected blogland for almost a week. I've been reading your posts, but unable to comment while I'm on the network in the office (blocked sites and so forth). After work, I've been plum beat and not felt like firing up the ol' laptop to read, write, comment, etc.
I am in Denver this week and got a wild hair to see if Jane had any desire to meet up and gab.
