be careful of the curse that falls on young lovers

My opinion of Glee has changed from highly amusing musical tv to highly addictive crack. Of course, mainly due to the addition of a new ship to my ever increasing list. Puck/Rachel OTP!

Also, I read The Time Traveler's Wife. That book just ripped out my heart and stomped all over it. I love tales of woe stories that have fate and destiny all mixed up with free will. The idea of a fixed fate is comforting to me. Like if I choose to walk down the other side of the street, it won't have any effect on whether or not I meet my soulmate, etc. Although I think if I had to live through the reality of it, as portrayed in the novel, I'd become seriously depressed.

After I finished the book, I sought out the trailer for the accompanying movie, and that 1-2 minutes was enough to convince me to not watch it. Rachel McAdams just sort of annoys me and I don't think she can play Clare properly. And Eric Bana is definitely not how I imagine Henry. So, avoiding the movie.

But I will most likely check out Niffenegger's next novel once it's released in paperback. Although I don't know how she could tell another story that would surpass her first.

I am so far behind in the Buffy comicverse. Le sigh.

Happy Friday the 13th!
