“The Hunger Games”

I am really tired tonight, and I decided to spend my blog-writing time doing productive work instead.  I will return to Adventures with BigEye tomorrow.

My message to you today is this:  Read The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins.  Quinland has been recommending this book to me for about a year, and I finally read it this week.

My alter ego (“Semantica, Warrior Princess of Grammarica,” as Ward Ferguson dubbed me back in St. Agatha days) believes the book could have used a few dozen semicolons.  Despite this repeated distraction, I couldn’t put it down. It was a very compelling story.

  • {Clutter} released: Processed a huge pile of newspapers.
  • {Procrastination} released: We worked on the Europe itinerary and even wrote a draft information-gathering email.

  2. I have tears in my eyes… there are no words. I mean, wrods. 😉

    The email is one we have drafted to find out more about places we might want to live in Europe (eg, Can we enroll Q in classes or activities? Are there places we can volunteer? What are the public transportation options?). Now we need to figure out how to get email addresses for the people who might be able to answer those questions.


    1. waht towns are you plamning on spendin time into? I wonder if I know of any folks. I wonder if Maggie might have some ideas, y’know, being marrid to a man of direct eeeruopean-ness. s are you tmpeted to correct my many errors? and edit for content?


  3. I loved all three books–just finished the last one a couple of months ago. I’m not too keen on seeing the movie, though. They are usually not close enough to the book–or my imagination!
