Friday Melissa and I saw the new Hunger Games and we both agreed it was better than the first. I am still a little curious about why the books were written--is it a parody on our government??? (Dec 1-I just read the Wiki about "Hunger Games" and wow, it is so much more complex than I had figured. I had tried to read the book and hated it but what do I know, it is a phenomenal success--but then I do not like science-fiction. It is still a puzzle to me though as to why it is praised so much--I guess it should be read and dissected to be appreciated???????' To quote 'Tim' in a comment after an article about banning the book, he says Collins’ motivation was, in the first place, to portray a world where violence as entertainment had reached its worst and force us to open our eyes to the dangers. ) I did not know that!
After the movie, we actually bought a Christmas tree!!! It is a table topper from Rite Aid--very healthy and attractive and I haven't had a live tree since Rancho Bernardo I don't think. And I wasn't going to decorate at all--but with Melissa here I was inspired to keep the tradition of Christmas decorations alive and well. Plus she could get the big boxes down for me!!!
I am loving all the lights and I had way more decorations than I could possibly use--beautiful tree I think. Thanks, Melissa.
