The Hunger Games & Rules of Life  
[personal profile] catherinebruce and I went to the midnight showing of The Hunger Games. I really enjoyed it and plan to read the books toot sweet now that I've plied her for spoilers to the last two books.

I, apparently, almost caused an "incident" after the movie. I'll quote CB's facebook to explain:

I have learned something over the course of my life. There are three important rules I abide by. Sometimes I bend these.

1) Never discuss politics
2) Never discuss religion
3) Never tell a Twilight fan the series sucks

Tonight after telling her my rules, in the middle of a theater full of teenaged girls, 90% of whom likely like the series, my roommate shouts 'Twilight sucks!'

Seriously, I was afraid I wouldn't make it out alive.

(Disclaimer: Please note that number three is not necessarily how I feel about the series. In the land of Twilight and the War of the Fans, I am Switzerland.)

LOL. I can only agree. Twilight is the dullest series I've ever laid eyes on. Could they be more wooden? *g* That said, I'm not a teenager any more (haven't been that in a loooooooong time) and probably belong in the 'oh-pfft-what-do-you-know?-you're-old' category now. Scary concept when I kinda feel like a teenager inside. Just not when it comes to Twilight. *g*

Ugh - I can't even go into Twilight, especially as a teacher of teens who all but worship it!Anyway, loved Hunger Games. I read Twilight for my students (UGH!), and put off HG (a new fave of theirs) as long as I could. Then it was CRACK!!! I mainlined the last two books in a 24 hour period!

Hope the Twihards didn't get any glitter on you. :)
