Holy Award Time Batman!

Yo! I'm a little late posting this. I got waaaay distracted (oh, shiny!) and life has turned crazy thanks to the day job, but don't you fret my pretties! I will NEVER leave you! (I know, you were concerned and losing sleep and not eating and crying into your pillows every night. You can stop now.)


The wonderful, sweet and sassy Cherie over at Ready.Write.Go. gave me an award! (check out her blog if you haven't, she's A-MAZ-ING!).

This one:

I just wanna squish him REAL BAD!

The caveat with that I have to list five things I've watched/read/whathaveyou in the last year.

So here's the best and brightest from my last year of living:

Why, oh why, did this show go off the air? Veronica Mars was like Nancy Drew, if Nancy Drew had been tougher, sarcastically witty, and just all around kick ass.

Veronica Mars is a short lived (three seasons) show on the WB (shuddup) about a teenage girl whose dad is a detective and former police chief. Veronica moonlights in her dad's agency, and solves mysteries, crimes, and other weird happenings around her school. Also, she has a taser. This show is no longer available on instant Netflix, so very sad for you if you missed it.

2. Book: Ruby Red, by Kirsten Gier
Four things: England, funny female protagonist, time traveling, hot guy. Uh, huh. Nuff' said.

3. Movie: Easy A
Emma Stone is soooo cool and really belongs on Rookie Riter's lesbian island (can I bring her, please please please!?). Also, Stanley Tucci and Patricia Clarkson are amazingly hilarious in this teen adaptation of The Scarlet Letter. And Penn Badgley takes his shirt off.

4. TV Miniseries: North & South
Based on the love story by Elizabeth Gaskell, this BBC four part adaptation is currently streaming on instant Netflix, so go watch it people! Great story, great actors, also the new love of my life:

Yes, Richard, I love you, too!
I am dumping Colin Firth this instant so we can run away together!

5. Meg Cabot
Okay, so I know that Meg Cabot is not a book, TV show or movie. I just like her a whole lot and I'm reading the 1-800-WHERE-R-U series right now and all her books are so awesome I just really want to lick her face off.

I think I'm supposed to pass this award on, but having to think about stuff like that makes me sweat and break out in hives. Just enjoy the picture of Richard Armitage and have a great Tuesday everyone!
