A Little Bit of Everything...

Hello, y'all! My goodness, it's been a while! You see, my life has been a bit crazy... and by 'a bit crazy' I mean really crazy. You know my cat? The gray one who likes to pee on things? She has marked her territory on well over 60 items in our house over the years and the number has been increasing rapidly as of late. Steam cleaning couches and other items multiple times isn't too easy, nor is it enjoyable, and it also takes up a lot of time. Like about 30 hours of my mother's weekend. Long story short, my precious little kitty had to go away, and I hope she finds a new home soon. I'm kind of sad since we've had her for over 6 years, but I don't show it and I certainly won't cry. But please don't think I'm insensitive-- I do care, I'm just not very caring, if that makes sense. In addition to this, our water heater broke on saturday night (which is now replaced, praise the Lord!) and my dad's car battery broke too, but that's a little more minor. Our weekend was basically just a comedy of errors.

Now, for a Hunger Games tag I received from Jessica!

1. Your sister's/brother's/best friend's name gets called at the reaping. What is your immediate reaction? 
I would like to believe that without hesitation I would volunteer. I would probably hear Libby's name called, register what was happening, imagine her trying to fight in the arena, but be unable to bear the thought of it, and volunteer.

2. In the training center, there are several different stations to practice your skills, some of them being how to camouflage yourself, archery, sword training, climbing, spear throwing, hand-to-hand combat (wrestling), and agility. Which one would you head for? 
I would have to decide between climbing and wrestling. Climbing because it could keep me hidden, but able to see what's going on (and because I enjoy it). Wrestling because I would have a hard time hurting someone bloodily (spear or sword, although I think I could use archery) and I feel like I could get really aggressive and maybe knock someone out.

3. You're in the arena and the countdown has just started. When the cannon goes off, what's your strategy? Grab necessary supplies, and then run for my life. Avoid contact with anyone. Find a hidden place and formulate a plan.

4. You are feeling like you're being watched. You glance over your shoulder and sure enough, the youngest tribute in the Games is watching you. What do you do? In the arena? I'll probably want, with every bone in my body to help her by allying, but keep moving, realizing that she might slow me down. . .Then I'll regret it every next minute.

5. There are only four tributes left in the arena, including you. What do you do? If I'm allied, I'll break up the alliance. Probably use a very Foxface-ish approach. Stay low profile and wait till someone attacks another tribute. Then maybe close in, or just wait until the others starve.

6. Which supporting character are you most like and why? I'm not really like many of the supporting characters at all. Maybe Cinna because he's artistic. But not really.

7. Which supporting character is your favorite? I'm pretty sure it's Finnick for his character. However, there are so many good characters that I can't really pick a fave. 

Okay, now I'll tag a few:

And I know there are a lot more of you who are Hunger Games fans... I just don't have time or energy to track you all down, so if you like HG just consider yourself tagged. :)

Oh, also, I'm such a geek that I thrifted for a Katniss costume. Would any of you like to see it? Let me know. 

Here's some stolen loveliness...

Love and a hug,

  4. Today - was just one of those days where I woke up feeling stressed by all the things that had to be done. So I thought to myself, "Liv, the perfect thing to do in this situation is to see if Lindsey has updated her blog lately." Yes, that is no lie. Your blog makes me feel a bit more sane - and I love it! :)

    On the subject of the Hunger Games... IT'S HERE!!!!! Like in 16.5 hours! I'm so excited. My group of friends coming with me dwindled due to it being a school night, but there shall be me and two geeky guy friends - it'll be hilariously awkward. Also, remember who showed you the 3rd picture? ;)Ahem ahem

    And I certainly want to see your costumes! Take pictures tonight. I don't think I can bring myself to dressing up - but braiding my hair will have to do. :) Have a great Hunger Games day!!

  5. I would LOVE to see your Katniss costume!!
