I'm going to see ~my man~ on Monday! From section 420, but whatever. The price I pay for asking my entire family if they wanted to go. And then offering to pay. If it was just my sister and I going, I would have gotten probably something next to the bullpen or close to the dugout. But I'll do that for a different game!

So yeah, this should be a fun Memorial Day. I don't normally do jack on Memorial Day. My family always meets for breakfast at Cracker Barrel, and then I go home and am bored for the rest of the day. Last year I ended up going in to work, so... heh. Macy's has asked me twice to work 6-9:15 on Monday night, and I'm just like "nope, sry, going to see my man pitch. bye." Though I didn't actually buy tickets until... 10 minutes ago, haha. There's also a Beach Boys concert afterward, so that should be cool! Not as cool as it would have been even 20 years ago, but whatever. Still fun. I'm gonna pretend as if I'm on Full House.

Sidenote: I wish my state tax refund check would get here so I can deposit it tomorrow so I can buy a Tommy jersey while I'm there. Sigh. That will be my ~Coach purse~ of this year. A Tommy jersey. Yes. <3

Is there a film that you think is perfect in its original form and should never be remade?

Yes.

Really, I hate remakes in general except for some very few. One of them being The Parent Trap. I actually like the 1998 version more than the original 1964 version. So it would be much easier for me to list the movies I might possibly like to see a remake of.

But for the record if anyone touches Gone With The Wind with a 10 ft pole, I'll probably jump off a bridge.

I don't really have one. I'm not a big fanfic reader. And when I do read fanfic, it's smut. Why smut? Because reading things that could feasibly happen on my television aren't as much fun. Also, the sexual tensions need to be released for me somewhere. But, in the absence of an actual fic on my part, here's the infamous My Immortal. Hilarity. Enjoy.

I need to reread this. I've loved (?) this book for a long time. I think I first read it in the 3rd or 4th grade (I know I reread it in high school sometime, but not since then). I love anything WWII related, and I think this book is part of the reason why (along with The Sound of Music, but that's neither here nor there). It's so fascinating, disturbing, and depressing. It's moving. brb finding my copy to reread.

Here's what I'm reading right now:

I'm halfway through it, and I lovelovelovelove it. Don't know why I waited so long to read it. It's so hilarious. The characters are fantastic. I especially feel as if I can relate to Lucy. It's just a great story. I can't wait to finish it!
