- A hug to the person who left the lovely snowflake on my profile (and signed it <3 Bradley James, cheers for that). It was sweet, thanks so much :)

- Despite not exactly being the biggest Twilight fan, I've come to discover that I'm totally a Jacob/Leah shipper. Late to the party much? So yeah, I already pretty much ignore everything that happened in Breaking Dawn, but especially so now. Speaking of Jacob, is Taylor Lautner still just 17? Because that's not right or fair. He's unjustly making me feel like a dirty old woman.

- After watching this week's Never Mind the Buzzcocks I've developed a slight crush on Dermot O'Leary, which is troublesome considering I barely know who he is. He hosts X Factor, yes?

- Finally started reading Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, I picked up the ultimate edition the other day, five books in one, so I've got a lot of reading to do. Am loving it so far. Douglas Adams had that quirky, funny style that I love so much.

- On the life front, I have yet another interview scheduled for Wednesday. I'm just so tired of getting all stressed out over these interviews and then still having nothing coming from them. So...yeah. Plus with the holidays and my birthday coming up, I'm just feeling kind of old and bleh.

Hopefully my flist is having a better time of it lately than me :)

Okay, so I went to Borders last night and picked up the Superman Returns novel since it was only like six or seven dollars (apparently I'm cheap) along with a couple of Smallville novels. I think the first one was Whodunnit and the second was City, or something like that.

Superman returns was great, which makes me more excited to see the movie next week. There were a couple things that bugged me. Nothing that would constitute spoilers or anything, but mostly it was Lex's characterization. I don't know, maybe I've watched too much Smallville, but I'm so used to a Lex who has real depth and even when he's evil you can kind of understand him and his motives, not that they weren't clear in the book. It's just that in the book Lex is so...comic-booky. Which, I know, makes sense to everyone but me since Superman is first and foremost a comic, but still. It seems like he's just coming up with evil plans just to pass the time, eh maybe it's just me.

As for the other two, I haven't started on City but I'm about five chapters into Whodunnit and well, I'm underwhelmed. It's not bad, but the dialogue seems like it's lacking and I bought it because there was a lot of Lionel and Lex in it, but Lionel seems more like a pain in the ass CEO who gets pissy when the weather's hot than the evil bastard that he is on Smallville. So--disappointed. I can't even really bring myself to find out who the bad guys are, oh well.

That being said, in order to keep my brain from turning to mush over summer break, I need to find some good books to read. At this point I don't even really care what genre, just something different. I think I've read every book I own at least three times by now. But I never know what to buy or what authors are any good. Eh, such is life.
