I also suspect that Peeta will die along the way. He really does give off sacrificial vibes. While I initially read the romance angle as Katniss falling for him despite what she thought she wanted, now I'm not sure her feelings are genuine. But then I could say the same about her feelings for Gale, which I'd interpreted as a deep friendship with a thread of sexual tension that she mistakes for romantic love. So, I dunno. I still want her with Peeta in large part because I just adore him and want a payoff for all his devotion (even though Katniss should not be a "reward"!), but I'm not as opposed to her and Gale.
Also, it's too bad that he's too old and probably can't act, because I now read each of Cinna's lines as if Tim Gunn is speaking them.
Last fall I tried to cut way back on my sugar intake and did a pretty good job of it. So why am I relapsing like hell? Sugar is the *last* thing I need, but I am its slave.
I'm also realizing that I have so much to learn about basic cooking techniques. I bought some fresh chicken breasts at TJ's yesterday, but I don't really know how to prepare them -- I'm always afraid I won't cook them long enough. And that's just the tip of my culinary illiteracy. Maybe I should find out if there are any cheap cooking classes in Atlanta. I know the rec center down the street offers some, but I'd have to pay a premium since I'm in an unincorporated part of the county, outside city limits. Sigh.
