Monday Mash-Up. On an Actual Monday!

I'm writing this Monday Mash-Up on Thursday, because I can't count on myself to do it over the weekend, much less on a Monday. Monday's are crazy, yo. But that's what I get for being all alliteration-y.

Let's do this thing, shall we?

First:
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.

Second:
Five hundred new fairy tales were found in Germany. 500! Did you even know there were 500 lost fairy tales? Me neither!

Third:
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.

Fourth:
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."

Fifth:
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.

Sixth:
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.

You're welcome.
