Since I do not have time to quilt tonight, I thought I talk about some of my favorite things. Dinner is ready for the kids and in a hour I will be off to Home Depot and picking up my son in Laurel.
Books & Movies: As you know I finished the Hunger Games and the movie will be out this week March 23rd. Looking at the previews it looks like they might follow the book, but you know how that can be, miss pages in a movie, that is why I like to read the book first before seeing the movie. I have already got the next book Catching Fire on my kindle. For those of you who have one, you know you can borough the book from the kindle lending library for free. Sheila from Sew Cook and Travel (http:/sewcookandtravel.blogspot.com/) is on a waiting list at the public library. Hey Sheila have you thought about going to the thrift store, you might find a copy there.
Also out this week is “Infamous” the 3rd book in the Nick series of Sherilyn Kenyon’s Dark Hunter series. If you have not read her books you are really missing some good reads, so stop pass her web sit and take a look around. It would be nice have her books turn into movies. She is up there with Twilight, Secret Circle, Vampire Diaries and even Supernatural.
TV: The winter season is about over on the t.v. shows and all new ones are coming in for the summer. Have any one of you caught the new show on ABC called GCB (formerly titled Good Christian Bitches the Good Christian Belles) about housewives in the Bible Belt? Well I love it, but I do not think it will last long since all the Good American Christians are up in arms. I think this show comes on Sundays, check it out.
I am looking forward to Ashley Judd’s new t.v. series coming this Thursday on ABC called Missing, and Kiefer Sutherland is back on Fox5 with a new series called Touch. I saw the first episode, and it looks like Kiefer is running around town trying to help people. Does that sound familiar from is last t.v. series 24 – Jack Bower, that was a fast past show, and Jack Bower always seemed to come back for more.
Then you have your cable channels. I’m looking forward to seeing the comeback of The Closer, Southland and Rosalie & Neal's (spelling wrong) on TNT, and shows on USA (Covert Affairs, In Plain Sight, and Psych). On HBO waiting for True Blood, Kings of Thorns, and Starz Spartacus: Vengeance.
There are other show that I watch, all the NCSI, Ringer, Person of Interest, Once Upon a Time, Harry’s Law, Lost Girl and more and more.
Now people what has happen to all the quilt and craft shows? I have to get up at 5:00 in the morning just to catch the few public channels WHUT and they are not worth the effort since they are repeats. To get any good quilt show you have to watch them on your computer and even then you might have to join the site for a small fee to watch. I am a member of QNN (Quilters News Network) and Quilters TV, but even they don’t have much going on. When I got cable I just had to have DYI, now I don’t even watch it, I am not interested in fix up the house, when all I want to do is quilt. That is why I work to pay someone else to do that kind of work for me.
So this is the end of my review of Books, Movies, T.V. etc. Hope you enjoyed it. What are you watching?
