Let's do this thing, shall we?
Shameless Self Promotion.
I started a new blog. A bookish blog. You should check it out. Like it on facebook. Follow it on the twitters.
Five hundred new fairy tales were found in Germany. 500! Did you even know there were 500 lost fairy tales? Me neither!
My (beautiful, talented) friend Kerri was positively gushing about a band named FUN. I said something like, "ok, ok, shut up, Kerri, I'll listen, already." And then I listened. And, oooooh, I like FUN.
The song is called The Gambler, and it has nothing to do with Kenny Rogers. Thankfully.
Famous Bestselling Author (and Extremely Cool Person) Eleanor Brown writes about a thing she and her honey, J.C., call Silent Love. You know what Silent Love is:
"Putting away the laundry when it's not your turn, leaving the last bite of dessert, picking up dinner when it's not fast-food night, changing the channel away from the thing you want to watch. And these are things that do not have to come from your partner - they can come from family or friends or anyone at all who loves you."
I'm really restraining myself here, but suffice it to say, inside I'm all OMGOMGOMGOMGOMG.
My main musical man, John Mayer, has a new album coming out in May.
My longest-running-famous-guy-crush-next-to-Ryan-Gosling is playing at my favorite venue, The Orpheum Theatre in Memphis, in April.
My fellow book clubbers (and both occupants of my Top 25 Favorite People list, if I had such a thing. Which I might.) and JM fans, Becca and Paige will be Road Tripping with me to see him.
Outside: cool, calm, collected. Inside: OMGOMGOMGOMGOMG O.M.G.
I haven't talked about it
at all much on the ol' blog, but I am WAY SUPER EXCITED about the first Hunger Games movie. I'm mostly WAY SUPER EXCITED that they cast a girl whose face actually shows emotion- I'm looking at you, Dead in the Eyes Bella Swan. Also, I think the books have a Big, Important Thing To Say about the culture we live in, the strength of family and love and freedom and all kinds of great things.
Also: Lenny Kravitz.
That's it for this week. Books, music, movies, blogs.
