TGIF / 21

You guys, last weekend I did the one thing I said I was never gonna do... I got a smartphone. I know! It's not like I really had much of a choice in the matter anyway. My poor little Pantech was on it's last leg and I had all of five (count em', FIVE) non-smartphone options. Yeah. It's absurd. The good news is that I can now delve headfirst into social media and give you guys up-to-date, play-by-play news and photos and respond to convos (when I should really be working) and all that good stuff. I haven't been brave enough to sign up for Twitter quite yet but you can still find me on Facebook and now Instagram, so check it out because your support means the world to me. Plus there will be photos of puppies and who doesn't love that?! Oh, and feliz cinco de Mayo amigos! Drink lots of margaritas. Ole!

Bookish News
Marie Lu talks about Champion, the final book in the Legend trilogy.

Can you solve these novel pictograms? Check the answers to see how you did!

A little teaser from book #3 in Veronica Rossi's Under The Never Sky series. SQUEEEEEE!!

Entertainment News
Where are they now: Drop Dead Gorgeous edition.

Jurassic Park 4 returns to Isla Nublar. This is going to be EPIC!

Apparently, Michael Bay's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot is NOT going to make the turtles aliens. Well thank god! Now if only Michael Bay wasn't directing it... one can dream!

If these Reading Rainbow bloopers don't make your day, then we're not friends anymore.

Two words, one number: Magic Mike 2. Yes folks, it's actually happening!

Pop Culture!
Many movie/TV sci-fi gadgets aren't really what you think they are. My mind = blown.

Zombie slingshots --- the new way to save yourself in the apocalypse.

Funny oxymorons for writers.

FYI: It's awesome to be a nerd. Why? Because Wil Wheaton says so. Yeah, just you try to argue with that logic. Can't be done.

The story behind Queen's biggest hit, Bohemian Rhapsody. Ya know, just in case you wanted to know.


  1. Levar Burton makes me laugh; it looks like he really needs to stay away from animals! Good thing there weren't many in The Next Generation. I also love that Wil Wheaton video!

    1. HA! Thanks! Wil Wheaton is the greatest and that may or may not be because I have a crush on him...

  2. I enjoyed figuring out the pictograms. I got them all except for one. Not bad I would say.

    Jurassic Park returning to the original island? Score!

    I was a big Reading Rainbow fan. Loved the bloopers. :)

    You have a great news list this week! Thanks for sharing all of the awesome finds.

    1. Anytime, Kay! I'm really glad you enjoyed them!

  3. I really liked the Champion preview--Marie is such a cutie! And you know what? Smartphones will change your life. ;) Thanks for the round up of stories!

    Wendy @ The Midnight Garden

    1. Anytime, Wendy! I haven't read the Legend series... yet. But I'm very excited for it (and that cover is STUNNING!).

      I'm afraid to become one of those people who depends entiretly too much on technology, which is why I think I've fought the smartphone thing for so long. I haven't jumped onto Twitter but I just signed up for Instagram and I'm slowly, ever so slowly, getting on board. The jury is still out though... ;)


You stay classy now! And thanks for stopping by. But mostly stay classy.
