So, there’s this girl Katniss…

And seriously, besides the fact that everyone I know whose book taste I trust likes it, that is ALL I know about The Hunger Games. I have it, it’s downloaded, it’s waiting for me, but reading it with three kids and so much to do is kind of a far away dream of something nice I’d like to do someday.

Know the feeling?

I feel that way about movies, too. The last one I saw in the theater was the new Star Trek when I was pregnant with my second. To see a movie, there’s childcare, there’s the should I take the baby or will I be stuck outside not watching it while she coos, so many things that could go wrong in a theater of adults with my infant that I have just opted out. Someday I will see movies again.

Know the feeling?

I’m actually kind of glad I haven’t read The Hunger Games yet, because the fervor with which people are discussing the movie is pretty remarkable, and I don’t know if I’d want to put it off until it came out on heavily edited TNT. Are you hemming and hawing and trying to figure out how you will see the movie RIGHT NOW?
