A whole lot of random

In an attempt to blog about something besides American Idol or Twilight I wrote a post about how annoyed I get that I let fear rule my life. It was a post inspired by a post I read a good friend's blog. The funny thing is that I'm afraid to post it. How ironic is that?!?! It may still end up here but I need to tweak it a little bit first. So instead of deep and thought provoking you get all the randomness rattling around in my head.

The Mortal Instrument series- I swore I wasn't going to start another unfinished series of books but
City of Bones was the book of the month for my book club so I had to read it. Of course as soon as I finished it I had to rush out and buy City of Ashes. Unfortunately the third installment, City of Glass, doesn't come out until next March, which is why I didn't want to get involved in another series. I don't want to wait that long!!

These are young adult fiction, which I seem to be reading a lot of recently, and I thoroughly enjoyed them. There are Shadowhunters, vampires, werewolves, faeries and demons galore and lots of teenage angst so if that interests you I would recommend them. There is a weird plot twist at the end of the first one that does not get resolved in the second but I'm 99.9% sure it will be resolved in the third one. Also one of the main characters is gay. There aren't any love scenes that he's involved in or anything but if that is a problem for you don't read them.
Three Musketeers Mint- Have you tried them? They are to die for!!

Healthy People 2010- anyone care about it? I certainly don't but if you do and want to write a research paper about it in the next couple of days let me know. There is also a 20 minute presentation involved so if you could include a killer PowerPoint presentation that would be great!

Twilight Movie Update- The Queen Mother Stephenie Meyer has updated her website with a
write up about her visit to the movie set. I love the picture of her with the humans! My favorite thing about her whole write up is the story about Peter Facinelli's April Fool's joke, it's hysterical! I even bought into it while I was reading it and was starting to panic.

Speaking of the Queen Mother-
The Host comes out on May 6th. Woo-hoo!! I'm so excited to get it into my hot little hands!

Of course it wouldn't be my blog if I didn't have my weekly AI thoughts. Can I tell you how thrilled I was that Kristy Lee went home last night?!?! FINALLY!!! That made my week!!! Oh and in case you didn't know- I love David Cook!! That being said, I don't want him to win. I don't want him to be trapped into the American Idol contract. He needs to be free to do what he wants.

Good to know...I will wait on the City books until next year....the wait for BD is killing me. I am not sure I could handle that again. Lol!

Does 3 Musketeers Mint taste like Peppermint Patties?

The Host...ARGH!!! I am not a patient person!

David Rocks....I think there is a real chance he could win it...but I am like you...I would be happier if he came in Second!

As I mentioned, I haven't been watching AI, but it seems everyone at my work was most happy to see Kristy Lee leave as well.

I will give you this...Peter Facinelli is smoking hot. And I love his wife too. Yay, we agree on a man!

PS-Hi Rae! :)
