UPDATED: Hunger Games with a new picture.

I wonder how many of you guys wrote about HG in the assigned "H" day for the Blogging from A to Z challenge.

Anyway. I went with my friends to a 7:05pm showing the Thursday before it's official release date. My friend's dentist sponsored the show and gave out gift cards and teeth whitening kits too. It was pretty sweet. I painted the Mockingjay on my friends' faces, on my kids' faces, and on some of my students' faces (the next day). My friend painted a 24 on me for District 24.

Movie rocked. My friend says the movie is just like the book but in fast forward, which I totally agree with. I loved the fire dress. That detail was cool to see instead of just imagine.

Overall I loved it. However...

Peeta should've been hotter. I mean, I just kept imagining him as the annoying big brother in Zathura, and it creeped me out. He should've been cuter. Just sayin' Hollywood. You couldn't pick someone from your Rolodex of age-appropriate hotties for this 30yo housewife? eh?
A gift to me from

Robert Downey Jr.?
or Hugh Jackman? (I'm pretty sure he wouldn't won the Hunger Games.)

Anyway. Go see it. And may the odds ever be in your favor.
I realize gold would've been way cooler, but I only had red.


  1. I've read your post so I feel I should comment, but whenever I see something about Hunger Games my head just says 'blah'. Until the rise of the film I knew nothing about it.

    1. Definitely read the book first. It's really good. The running joke is that Twilight is for people who don't get Hunger Games.

  2. It's quite a shame that I still haven't seen the movie. I loved the book though. :)

  3. I haven't seen the movie and it is hard trying to squeeze some free time in. I will be one of those waiting on the Redbox release to see it.

    1. Understand that. I catch most new flicks months later with Netflix.

  4. Hi, Rena! The mockingjay face paint looks fantastic. How fun! I haven't seen the movie yet but I've heard great things about it. I'm glad the screenplay stayed pretty faithful to book!

    Have a wonderful day and happy A to Z!!

  5. Get me a juice box bee-yach! ahahaha. I made you a meme

    boss job on the face paint

    ps After scouring Josh love blogs looking for the pic for the meme, I think he is pretty cute these days

    1. THANKS for that! I heart it. It's exactly how I feel about the casting choice. You pretty much rock.
