I suppose since Monday has swung around again, I should offer an account to what I’ve been up to, since I clearly haven’t been blogging…
Last week I read the last two books in this Millenium trilogy… in like two days each, despite their heftiness. I was so drawn in that I couldn’t put them down! I stayed up until 2AM reading on a few occasions, then slept in extra late to make up for it. Now my body clock is all out of whack, but that’s neither here nor there. Normally I’m drawn to memoirs or historical fiction but with these thrillers I made an exception–okay, well I’m a sucker for conspiracy theories so I suppose these fit the bill in that regard. I highly recommend them, especially in comparison to the dearth of good action movies in theaters these days. I have to give a caveat that there are some graphic scenes and if you don’t like strong language, you may be put off.
As a feminist, the themes of men vs. women, stereotyping women, and women as victims all gave me a lot to think about.
I’ve been working, as usual, meeting some new people, and hanging out with friends. You know, the usual, but not necessarily blog-worthy. I did see Jurassic Park for the first time though, in 3D, and wow! That movie is intense!! I can’t imagine how my peers all saw it in elementary school! I jumped several times, and was very impressed by the special effects! I can appreciate a good CGI monster, but animatronic ones really blow me away more for some reason!
Hopefully the mac will be repaired by the end of the week (it’s expensive, so we couldn’t get it done right when it broke) so I can get back into the swing of things!
What have you been up to, friends?

Just have to pop in to say: the raptors of JP permanently scarred me for life. I know that recent evidence showed that they most likely looked a lot more like birds, with feathers, than anything else, but oh god, THAT SCENE…seriously. For life. And once I started driving, I found the “Objects in mirror may be closer than they appear” a steady reminder of the scene with the T-rex chase. Man. That movie. Memories. And I only saw it twice.
Haha! I can totally see being scarred for life. Maybe going and seeing it now as an adult would be therapeutic? It was still pretty scary, though! Ha!
I’ve been wanting to see it as an adult because I’m 100% positive there were “adult” jokes that I missed as a kid, and I can’t wait to see what slipped through the cracks.
