My compy clock must be off. Cuz it says 8:03. I've been refreshing the crap outta this site.
Me too. Mine says 9:04
I just sent you a friend request on FB, Memz. No pressure, tho.hahhahaha
lollerz Stands!! I'll think about it
I liked how you listed all the last sentences, Flem. That was cool.
I'm going to refresh my diet soda then. brb
Yeah, don't worry about friending me Stands. It's cool, I understand...
Flem, did you ever get a hedgehog?
::agrees with Stands:: Memories...such good good memories...
Congratulations to all you losers who just took all my well thought out and well written points and said the opposite.Bravo.
wait....I want more FB friends
I don't want to be too presumptive. But, hey - okay!!! :D
i'll think about it
District 13, here
your sounding bitter Landee...do you need a diet dp?
Stands, just search for "HotPants Morgan"...she'll pop right up
I loved Flem's review, and I have to thank her for reminding me how much I really enjoyed the book, and what a great writer S.C. is. But yes, get a haircut... and... I don't know... something else.
I want more too.
eeek! running late.
Oh can I be your facebook friend too??
Thanks Standsmom. And I think we are considering a hedgehog for Christmas. My in-laws will love it if we get it flown to their house in Utah.And landee, you are right about everyone needing you for ideas.
I'm thinking I'll read the third book you gize
I just got one Cristin, you're so thoughtful! And no, I'm not bitter. Just disappointed in everyone this month, including Suzanne.
Flems review gave me chills.
Srsly!!! Suzy needs a haircut...I couldn't concentrate on those videos because I just wanted to grab her hair and do something with it and this is me...who NEVER does my hair...
Something else for S Collins for sure. How many cats do you think she has?
Flem. Why do you hate me?
My avatar is broken, dangit! I wanted you to all see my Katniss. She was hot!
LOVED it Flem. Your review was best.
She's a cat lady and a hoarder. I'm 98% sure.
She's groovy. If I'd seen her or heard her before I read the books, I'd have issues with them.
I am here. We can start now
The avatar can come later jespy.
I'm guessing at least 9 cats
Oh man. We're not going to vote on the best review are we? ;)
Oh geez...I could write the last line of GITYD and it'd give you the chills too. Flem's review was poop.
Amen to Flem's review being the best... wow, the comments are coming fast.
I think the frizzy uncut look is coming back in tho.
Yay! we can start now!
I don't think she has cat, I think she collects trumpet snails
Landee you know the word hate isn't even in my vocab.And I was just so shocked that people wouldn't just love it to pieces like I did.I also wish I had a diet coke.
Um, I worked hard on my review, and a certain 10 year old over here logged me off my open-office without saving, and I didn't have the time or patience to write another one. But, the gist of it was, I liked it.
This is overwhelming. Should we all pause and do district 12s salute?
::off to go get a spiral perm then brush it out::
So, L did you not like it? Or just not LOVE it? Confused.
I loved Markie's parallel to the mish. I totally would have a heart attack if I had to go back.Would I have to give up my iphone?
Speaking of poop...have you ever pooped and then looked in and it's gone? So unsatisfying.That's how I felt after reading this.
I'd love a big coke right now, but I'd be awake all night. Dang it.
::wishing I had gone on a mission so I can relate all books to my mission::
No this book was VERY satisfying. Just ask me.
Why are you all talking about Scollin's hair?
Stands you just have to drink it enough for the caffeine to not affect you. And Shed has those dreams all the time about his mish.
My question:Did anyone picture the desert/cartoon atmosphere of Wile E. Coyote and Road Runner during the scene when Haymitch threw the thing off the cliff?
It's called a phantom poop, I think.
::am relieved I didn't go on a mission so I didn't have to live the horror of Mark's mission but out loud I am saying...:: I wish I went on a mission!
nope but now I am
I did imagine that!!! That is so funny! Red rocks, dirt, dust cloud at the bottom.
I have dreams of going back to school and forgetting my locker combo. Same thing. So, shall we discuss the actual book or what? Who was your fave new character?
I pictured the Truman Show when they talked about Haymitch
I am loving Haymitch a lot more now
I didn't like the stripper at first but she kind of grew on me. She was fiesty and bitter
I didn't care much about the new characters. I know, that's insensitive - isn't it.
I LOVE Finnick.
And the way she kissed whatshisname before she electro-killed herself.
Fave new character?The hot muscly guy who was the tribute who always got gifts? What was his name?I liked him.
I pictured the truman show too. Knocking on the blue sky and realizing it's not real.
I tried not to get too attached to the new gize since they pretty much will have to die sometime in the series.
Yeah Finnick. And his crazy gf. I expect to see more of them.Also magpie girl, I want to see more of her. I mean mockingjay.
Flem, considering freshmen year, that somehow does not surprise me. Steve doesn't read this right?
That was Finnick. I liked him too. I am curious to learn about Annie
I loved the part when the girl got naked on the elevator in front of Peeta. Showed Katniss how desirable he is.
I was annoyed that Katniss's mom and sister lived in a regular house with food and stuff. It was too comfy. I liked it better when they were on the verge of starving to death. Can't explain why.
Who deleted their comment? No fair.
Who doesn't love a hot muscly man?
My blogger is cornfused.
Should we discuss page 352. I have it opened up to that page...
I liked this book better the first time when it was called THE HUNGER GAMES.
It was just a double comment. For some reason that is my biggest pet peeve on the planet, when it posts twice.
I lent my book out. Don't have it now. Can you replay that page for me sara?
to be honest, I really was excited about this book but I didn't have high hopes of fulfillment since it's the middle book.
I liked how Finnick was both vain and arrogant, yet he was hopelessly devoted and loyal. Love him. I don;t think he'll die. Or else.
What is on 352? I loaned out my book.
My pet peeve is child abuse, but yours is important too, Flem.
Remember when Gale held her so tight at that cabin place?
I also would hit Finnick.Isn't that what you were saying jenny?
Pg. 352. Who doesn't love a kiss that makes your head wound bleed?
I'd tap Finnick...
Remember when Gale was awesome?Me neither.
I thought it was sad that he had to enter with his "mother" figure. Sad. And that he didn't even say anything about it, to get sympathy.
I have a few categories, one is "violation of morals" and one is "pet peeves." Clipping your nails during RS is a peeve (happened today and it grossed me out) but punching someone in the face is more of a violation of morals. As is pedophilia.
I can't believe it took all the way to page 352 for her to finally "Feel" it...jeeeeesh.
He was the only new character that I loved. The rest were good, but he stood out.
Still there Sammy? What did you think? Where's your review?
Clipping nails anywhere other than the outdoors or a trashcan.
Of course he stood out, he's hot..doyee
" I do'" I say. "I need you." He looks upset, takes a deep breath as if to begin a long argument, and that's no good, no good at all, because he'll start going on about Prim and my mother and everything and I'll get confused. So before he can talk, I stop his lips with a kiss.
Jespy you are brilliant! Yes he never said "hey na look at me, feel sorry for me" and Mags was aws in throwing herself into oblivion.I loved all the misfits.
Where did Sammy go???
Oh yah I did like 352. Good point.
Do you accept late reviews cuz I haven't written one yet.
So my friend Amanda, who barely peeked in here for a second, thought K&P should have "tapped" each other before they went in to hunger games again to basically die this time. The situation was desperate. What do you think?
They need to make a little autoscroll so that I don't have to get to the bottom each time I hit refresh. Anyone have any good tips on managing that?
I still don't know how they slept together without doing anything. He didn't accidently brush against anything? Or cop a feel? Ever?
I hope Peeta doesn't have to go through book three critically injured, and being carried around again. I'm ready for that boy to put up a fight.
Yes, Amanda! There you are.
No, they should wait until they are married just like Bella and Edward did.
They did do it. That's how she got pregnant.
I appreciate Ms. Collins keeping it clean so I can continue to refer this book. She might pull a S. Meyer and throw in a fourth book with married sex.
What about waking up in the morning with Peeta? Nothing?
I totally agrees with Amanda...they should have totally sealed the deal...biblicaly speaking.
I think people were jumping in to save peeta before he needed help... except at the end when the capitol got him.
I like Peeta being helpless and needing Katniss. She wouldn't be as cool if he wasn't. Peeta's powers are of the mind...
It is weird that they don't mention him trying to refrain.Especially because it appears to be culturally acceptable since they say she is prego and no one is in an uproar.
Oh I definitely don't want smut. I like it clean too. It's just my imagination goes...
Ever since I read page 352 all love songs that I hear on the radio have a whole new meaning. Like today I heard that corny song by Celine Dion "It's All Coming Back to Me Now" and I thought of page Katniss and Peeta.
Oh..Peetas got powers...
I like Amanda. She is a real romantic unlike some of you peeps.
Breath stinks in the morning. Ew.
I like Amanda. I like her a lot.Welcome!
I thought you didn't like the gay hobbit type eek.
I did want them to do it, but at the same time it would have been out of place bc Katniss had more important things on her mind. Basically what Flem said in her review. Did we mention flem's review yet?
So how deep is the corruption at the Cap? Is it just Pres. Snow or are there a whole bunch of peeps?Is anyone else thinking district 13 is like where the smokies lived in Uglies?
Well, they did say they got married and it was a secret and then she became preggos. I am curious how the kissing was considering the stinch that had to be coming off their bodies and out of their mouths. I wish they had some mint leaves in this book again.
Sorry we just got back from the fair. I did write a quick review. I loved the book. Only I wish Katniss would just commit to Peeta already and Gale would go away.
I was a little annoyed that it took katniss so long to realize the significance of the mockingjay. Duh.
I think we might have mentioned Flems review but I'll go back and read all the comments again.
Haymitch and Effie are gonna do it.
True day Landers. Old's style.
My all time fave character is Cinna. Hands down.::answering Jespy's question from an hour ago::
I finally go there and finished reading all 104 comments and when I post this one, there'll be a bucket-load more for sure. You gize are too much!
No flem, remember Peeta said they secretly got married, and THEN she got prego. Scollins was keepin' it clean indeed.
Haymitch has too much alkie in his system to take any kind of action in that dept.
Except for the part where kids killed each other.
The beating of Cinna had me doing the fetal. It was then.
I like you too, Amanda, but if Celine is on the radio, I am not thinking about K and P, I am changing the station.
I hated Katniss watching Cinna get the crap beat outta him.
What could she do tho?
ewww can we stop talking about Haymitch "doin it".
Oh yeah I forgot the secret marriage thing. Shoot there goes that theory.But they make it even easier than Vegas so it still might be fairly acceptable.
Oh poor, poor Cinna! Did that break your heart or what? I kept picturing this totally flamboyant gay guy in tight purple pants and stuff. Who could hit someone like that? And District 13 made me think about I am Legend - where they were headed at the end of the movie.
Oh, it's nice to know people like me. On facebook a lot of people hate me. This is a nice change.
Haymitch would need that alcohol to tap Effie.
Oh sweet Cinna. I've said it before and I'll say it again. I want a gay friend.
And what kind of person names a kid effie?Hey effie you.
Is Cinna Dead? Can't remember. Snow needs to die a slow painful death.
How can anyone dislike a flamboyant gay guy...their my favorite!
Have any of you guys ever read that short story by Shirley Jackson called "The Lottery."
gay dood that is
I ate toast with Gty and then we did it too....like 3 months before we got married in the temple. Ssshhh....
The Cinna beating was devastating. I even screamed NOOOOOOOOOOO, and reached my hand toward the open book, but I couldn't do anything to stop them.
Cinna is gay? They allow that in the Capitol? Okay, I guess it makes sense now why they beat him up. I didn't get it before.
Oh yeah the lottery! The stones deal. That is one ugly story. Landee and I read it in college with our hooked hand prof.
::writing down the lottery to my reading list::
Okay, I have an idea, next book club meeting needs to take place in a real chat room. This is too difficult to keep up with on blogger.
Cinna is not FLAMBOYANT!!! He is classy gay...did you gize even read these books??? What the hell is the matter with you?
I have read The Lottery and this story totally brought back those horrifying memories.
I can't keep reliving Cinna's beating. I hated that they shot that poor old man in the head too. YIKES!
What kind of toast was it?
Speaking of crying in stories. My kids just watched "Homeward Bound". Landee? Are you crying yet?
I date a flamboyant gay guy for a few months. Of course I didn't know he was gay.....
Wow this discussion is going fast. I can hardly keep up.
The kind of toast with the little sunflower seeds in it. Way good. And then we did it.
Sorry Landee...I just read him being classy with some flamboyance...won't make that mistake again....
A man can like fashion and not be gay.
Don't bring up those dogs Memzy. This is not the forum.
Yeah, this discussion is rough!
He wore classic black suits with just a hint of gold eyeliner. So NOT flamboyant. But def gay.
My head hurts
PS Public shoutout to Jespy for turning me on to Amish Romances. On my third one. Well the second was a Shaker romance but same concept.
I liked all the themes in this book.
What exactly is "it"?I don't think he is gay. Seriously, you gize are just like J.K. Rowling.
I'm sorry eekareek...it's unpossible for a guy not to be gay and into fashion that much...just can't happen.
PSS I think Pres. Snow is a vampire. Thus the blood breath.
Landee, I've got you on a pedestal. This talk about toast and 'stuff...' :hands to eyes, saying 'la la la la la!':
Cinna is what you would call "meterosexual". Not gay.
Shadow was too old. Peter didn't think he could make it.
Not true, there is always one straight guy on Project Runway. He gets kicked off in the beginning but there is always one.
So did the prego thing shock you? And then not much really came from it after that, but it still made Pres Snow look bad to the Capitol peeps.
Oh...and by "it" I simply mean "levi loved."No big deal.
Morgan wears touches of gold all the time...
But in the same breath, I would never judge you. Something about the pot and the kettle? Yeah, I don't do that.
If only I had thought to offer girls toast. Whodathunk?
My favorite pages were 237 and 252 and 352
