I don't think I mentioned this the first time around, but I cried OPENLY, on the bus, on my morning commute, within the first 25 pages. It's. That. Good. (Sister love, it'll get me every time. BUT NOT My Sister's Keeper - UGH. Stupid girls who told me this was a must-read, I will get you back someday!)
Not only that, but I've been watching the movie trailer on repeat for a few weeks now. I cry EVERY. TIME. I watch the trailer. (Despite the fact that there are several GLARING incongruities from the book apparent in it... SIGH).
Just now I watched it, and through wiping away my tears I clicked on one of those "Related" links on the side. It said the FIRST *10* minutes of the movie was leaked!!! I WAS SO EXCITED!!! Then this weird 80s looking dude starts dancing, and I go, "Is this an ad???"
My sister stared at me and then started laughing. She goes, "You've been Rickrolled!" I had NO IDEA what rickrolling was. That made her laugh more. ""Is this an ad???"" she mimicked me!!! As we have come to discuss time and again, I have NO cultural IQ. This is old news. And yet it amuses her to no end whenever a display of my pathetic lack of pop culture knowledge rears its silly self.
Nonetheless, I can't WAIT to see this movie. I'm also terrified of how they're going to depict certain scenes. (In the end, I didn't go see The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, mostly because I didn't think I could handle the uber-messed up s*x scenes.)
The Hunger Games is supposed to be "young adult" fiction - but seriously the things that happen in there are MESSED. UP. Especially freaking out about the "last" kill portion of the Games.
Anyways, added a new little countdown widget - because I. CANNOT. WAAAAAAIT. It's Gonna Be FAAAAAAABULOUS!!!! (Read the last two sentences in an Oprah voice!!!)
