Fangirl Friday- March 2

Fangirl Friday is hosted by my awesome pal Evil Eva over at Nancy Drew is My Homegirl. It’s where we spazz over our latest obsessions.

1. Man or a Muppet- You guys, how adorable is it that this song won an Oscar?  I loved this movie (and all of the songs) and I loved the acceptance speech because…accent alert… I didn’t realize that Brett McKenzie was from New Zealand.

2. Spreading the Adam Love-So it’s no secret that I love Adam from If I Stay/Where She Went.  He is totally and completely swoonworthy on every level.  This week I got my friend Tammy (this is a different Tammy from the one I mentioned last week. I surround myself with Tammies) finally got a chance to read WSW and her reaction was stellar.  I mean, she loved it OF COURSE.  But when I walked over to her car in the school parking lot the other day, she was in the middle of reading it. She didn’t say hello or anything. She got out of the car and said...SPOILER ALERT. CLOSE YOUR EYES IF YOU HAVE NOT READ IT…”SHE.  HAS . HIS.  GUITAR. OMG.”  I was like, I KNOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yea for spreading the Adam love!

3.  Did you realize that it’s March?  March means The Hunger Games. It’s almost here.

Just. Sayin.

4.  The Princess Diaries– I don’t think it should matter that I’ve read this book so many times I can possibly recite it.  Or that I have a ginromous stack of books on my nightstand. Books I haven’t actually read. I still decided to read it the other day. Why? Because what could be better than seeing Michael tease Mia about her postnuclear Armageddon  life mate choice of Josh Richter (bad choice Mia!) or  reading about all of those moments when Michael is tutoring Mia in Algebra and their knees sort of brush together? Or course, all she’s busy doing is freaking out about her breast size (I hear ya, girl) and about how bad it sucks that she’s a princess–but she comes to her senses eventually.  Those books never get old for me.

Look out War and Peace cos this shizz is epic

5. Romeo & Juliet- The Baz  Luhrmann version.  I was thinking about the fact that Luhrmann is doing The Great Gatsby (holy crap I love that book) right now with Leonardo DiCaprio and that got me thinking about how much I loved his version of Romeo and Juliet. Of course I love the Franco Zeffirelli version too.

Oh my goodness. Aren't they beautiful?

But for some reason, the BL one spoke to me a little more. I loved the casting and the music and the imagery.  It was perfect.  I’ve been listening to the soundtrack alot lately and I’m primed to watch it today while everyone is at school (since there is no episodes of The Vampire Diaries until March. What. The. Heck?)

And can I get a sigh for Leonardo DiCaprio? I’m so 90’s.

Fangirl Friday- February 3

Fangirl Friday is a feature hosted by my friend Evil Eva over at Nancy Drew is My Homegirl.  It’s where we blab about the things we’re most excited about this week.  This is a very good thing.

1. Where She Went by Gayle Forman– Yeah, I read this last year before it was released. And then I read it again and slobbered all over my review (I actually said I wanted to marry this book which, now that I think about it, is still totally true).  I loaned it to my beloved Vee a few months back and although she devoured it immediately, she’s had it for like six months. I was having Mia and Adam withdrawals so she sent it to me (thankyouthankyouthankyou).  First of all, I breathed a major sigh of relief that it was in my hands again, proof that I may need mental help. And then, even though I have at least a dozen books I’m supposed to read right now, I read it again. And let me just re-emphasize: THIS BOOK IS SWOON CITY!  Adam, oh how I love you.  I will wear my Team Adam button with such pride.

Side note: Evil Eva, you need to read this, ok?  Do it for me. Do it for Adam and Mia (but mostly for me).

2. The Vampire Diaries is back!  I record it and watch it on Friday mornings. I’m probably watching it right now as you read this. Bring on Damon and them crazy eyes! I’m there!  EEeeeeeeee!

3. Winter the Dolphin– Changing gears here. My family and I watched A Dolphin Tale on Friday (and yeah, the hubs and I totally cried) and since then we have been obsessed with watching Winter the Dolphin on her webcam.  You guys, laugh if you will, but she is stinking adorable.  You can check her out here.

4. Sam’s Town by The Killers– Ever get stuck on an old album? That’s me most of the time.  This week it’s been Sam’s Town. Especially this song.  It makes me want to dance around my house. I’m playing it relentlessly.

5. Legend by Marie Lu– All I can say about this book is HUZZAH.  I’m a little more than halfway through and this shizz is awesome.  It’s like a dystopian Les Miserables, only not.
