Late To the Party …Again

24 Mar

For the most part I stay in the know of most things, but I’m woman enough to know when I’ve missed the boat.

Like with the Keurig:

I resisted this for as long as I could and then had a wild, intense affair with stalking one — to the point of conjuring elaborate reward systems to “earn” a Keurig. My sister took pity on me and got me one for Christmas. I’m dreading the warmer weather because I won’t use it *as* much.





Or when I refused to watch 30 Rock for years, caught one by accident and
then wished I had a time machine… and a black belt so I could kick my own butt.  This show is hilarious and as a writer I appreciate smart writing in a way I know the average viewer does not.




But probably my biggest current shame is The Hunger Games. I know, I know, don’t kill me! I actually read Suzanne Collin’s other series (Gregor the Overlander) before the Hunger Games were out. I devoured these books. They made me laugh, cry and skip showers and sleep blowing through them. I was incensed that people hadn’t read the Gregor books.

I — in my infinite crazytude — decided not to read them in protest. Don’t look at me like that. I freely admit it wasn’t my best plan. But now that all of my friends have read the books and the movie is out I’m filled with a teenage level of angst that I’m the only one who doesn’t know what the fuss is about, and I won’t know until I get a few more things off my plate.

*dramatic swoon*

Please tell me I’m not the only one who missed the boat on this one. Or at lie to me and make me feel a little less angsty.



Who just might combust into flames of deprivation by the time you read this. If you want to hear more of Sasha’s ramblings, visit her at or follow her on Twitter @SashaDevlin

    Sasha, don’t feel bad. I am ashamed to say I haven’t read them either, despite having friends, nieces, and nephews raving about them! They are on my TBR list, though.

    Yeah, don’t feel bad. I haven’t read the books either, although I do know what they’re about. Sometimes I have to choose between reading and writing and writing will always win :).

    Add me to the list. But I am anxious to see the movie!

    I missed that series too. I tempted to give it a try. I love dystopian fiction and the dystopian RPG sims. I may have to play catch up and see the movie.
