Trivial dither this day:
** finished Mockingjay yesterday! I will wait until next week to post a review I think. But my initial impressions are a bit of a blur. Seriously not sure what to think! Have you read it yet?
** Lion King on Wednesday was all that I expected. Absolutely stunning costumes. And that African music truly does give me chills. The guy that played our Simba looked like an Osmond brother. We got a kick out of that. However, I was bugged he wasn't African American, like the kid that played little Simba was.
** Only three more episodes and our Prison Break marathon will be over. (Except I understand there's a movie called The Final Break, which I'm sure we'll hunt down.) It will be withdrawal time around here after that. The show is seriously addictive. ( I made a YouTube playlist with all the awesome music from this show, click here if you are interested.) Have I convinced anyone to watch this crazy series?
** But then it will be time for new fall TV shows, however, I don't know what I'm looking forward too. Vampire Diaries for one (did you see that Damon beat Edward in Entertainment Weekly's beastly showdown? Very fun.) Maybe Chuck, Survivor of course. But is Heroes coming back? Not even sure. Is there a new series you are looking forward to?
** Utah Book Blogger Party tomorrow! Hopefully it won't rain on us! I hope I see a bunch of new (and old) faces there! Will you be there?
** So I'm reading Bleak House, which is like 800 or so pages. And last night I couldn't resist and started The Shadow Rising which is just at 1000 pages. And I'm so dying to read Fall of Giants, which is, I don't even know, probably 1000 pages too. And Brandon Sanderson's latest book comes out this week, The Way of Kings, and what's it? Probably also 1000 pages. Seriously. This is madness. Do you enjoy huge fat books?
** Still one week to go before all my kids are in school. That will be a happy day. We managed to get all the goals accomplished that I hoped for at the beginning of the summer. Still wrapping up a few of them but still, we did it! Are you glad to see the end of summer or not?
** I just got a box of a bunch of little mini apricots from my mom. I guess I need to go make jam, or pie, or syrup or something! Do you have a favorite apricot thing I should make?
Okay, well. I think that's all for now! Have a lovely weekend everyone. I hope to see some of you tomorrow!
