Yeah, so, I love to go through the print orders at work. We print really cool stuff: posters, stickers, postcards, invitations, business cards and more (end of commercial).
So, yeah, I love to look it them all. But, today I saw something that confused me. It was a postcard for seminar or something, touting a writing guide … for mothers.
Shit, I have to use a special writing guide now. I can’t just use a regular writing guide? Is there a writing guide for the childless?
Speaking of writing … well, not really — I’m reading “The Hunger Games” because it’s the law. I’m pretty sure it is, right? You have to read “The Hunger Games” or see the movie. If you don’t the penalty is forced participation in The Hunger Games, or The Running Man, if you are over 40.
It’s a perfectly entertaining book. It’s no “Harry Potter,” but it’s an easy read. I’m not sure how a book about teenagers killing each other has fallen into the Young Adult category, but OK, whatever.
I do think it’s nice that the book features a strong female character whose isn’t completely focused on boys. I haven’t read “Twilight” because I’m in a happy marriage with an active sex life; but isn’t the gist of it that some high school girl can’t decide if she wants a vampire or a werewolf to be her boyfriend? Did she consider maybe dating other people? I mean, she met these guys in high school, right? Shouldn’t she explore what is out there, guy-wise, before she decides to settle for the vampire or the werewolf? She could at least check her matches for free on Match.com. Like I said, I didn’t read the books or see the movies. Maybe she did those things.
So anyway, I started reading “The Hunger Games” to Yob, because I thought he should read the book before he sees the movie.
Apparently, he’s not into it.
