Fast Five Friday

Hey y'all!

Today was super-duper fun. Really laid back, but fun regardless!

Yesterday (sorry for no postage!) I finished up TAP class, and learned a whole bunch more useful wonderful information, so I'd deem the whole class a raving success! This morning was my 9 am 'show my face' time and then I was done with work for the day. My roommate had some stuff to do at the other base, so I offered to drive. I ended up reading in the car all morning (there was a wonderful breeze, and I was in Katy heaven.), and I finally finished Something Borrowed.

Ugh. I was displeased almost from like page 5. The trailer for the movie (which is what made me want to read the book in the first place!) looks super adorable, and like a girl who is genuinely caught between a man and her best friend and cares deeply for both. The book is about a selfish, shallow, self-victimizing woman (Rachel) who thinks because her best friend (Darcy) is self-centered (which she is) and that she has had a very "lucky life" and is prettier and more successful and because Rachel has let Darcy walk all over her for her entire life, that is okay to have a full blown affair with Darcy's fiance.

She doesn't even feel guilty. She just acts like because Darcy is selfish and self-absorbed, it's ok. I'm thinking, if she's such a witch, then don't be her friend. Anyways, it really kind of annoyed me. I still want to see the movie, because the movie makes it seem better, and definitely makes Rachel seem like a nicer person. So I recommend watching the movie, and not reading the book. I'm hoping I'm not just as disappointed with the movie.

Now. A movie I was super not disappointed to see? Fast Five. Holy cow. I love, love, love it. It's my favorite out all of them. (The only one I didn't like was number 2, though.) It was funny and entertaining, and actually kind of heart-felt. One thing it was not was realistic though. So if you are looking for a serious, could be happening right at this moment movie, please don't waste your money only to complain later about much it sucks. :) (That's a pet peeve of mine.)

Other than that, my day was spent playing Lego Harry Potter. Yup. I'm an XBOX geek and darn proud of it. :)

Off to play more XBOX and watch some Desperate Housewives. Thank you Netflix! I hope everyone has a great weekend! Tomorrow I'll take pictures, promise!


  1. I'm so glad I'm not the only one still watching DH. I am always stoked to watch it on Monday, especially since they brought Paul back! I love him.

    That book sounds awful. I hate books where the main character is a screeching harpy that makes women look like back stabbing witches. I'll definitely be passing on that.

  2. Aw thats a bummer about the book - I hope the movie is better!!

  3. That stinks about the book! I'll just skip it then!

  4. I really wanted to read one of her books too, thanks for the heads up. LEGO HP?! I have been dying to play that game but they aren't carrying it over here. Darnyou. Enjoy it for me! I love your blog, Kate. It's so nice to see what you've been up to and how you are doing :) Lots of love!


Leave Love! It makes my heart happy. :)
