In Which I Hit Theaters (And Rank Sausages)

Well, it's Monday. Not much more to say to that other than BOOOO! Boo Monday! And come back, weekend! You were awesome and miss you and luuuurve you.

I actually had a pretty full and fun weekend. We hit Divergent in theaters of course.

Twin and I really liked it. Bro thought it was okay (though I don't think he was as big a fan of the book as we were). We all thought the soundtrack was great.

We also all agreed, though, that it was a really great adaptation of the book. We couldn't decide though if that was props to the movie, or just because Veronica Roth wrote a book that was easily translatable to a movie.

We all had problems with some of the casting. The three guys they cast to play Will, Al and Peter all looked very similar, and since none of them had tons of screen time, it was hard to figure out who was who. If one of them was blonde, or, hell, maybe, I dunno, a different race perhaps? That would have helped a lot. But whacha gonna do?

I thought Theo James was an excellent Four, which was nice since I really had no opinion on him one way or another. I also thought Shailene Woodley did a good job of capturing Tris's growth from mousey Abnegation girl to kick-ass Dauntless girl.

Then after the movie we went home and made some banger sausages:

Banger sausages are in the top 4 sausages, which include (in no particular order) cheddar brat, banger sausage, Italian sausage and liverwurst. You can argue with me about this all you want but I HAVE SPOKEN!

Then we played some video games and finally got a chance to see Frozen. All in all, it was pretty awesome. which is why I again say:

BOOOO! BOO on you, Monday!

That's a lot of sausages.
The reviews have been really dismal for Divergent, so glad you enjoyed it.

Great job on the sausages. I'm impressed!

I only just read the book so I look forward to seeing the movie, very much. :)

That sounds like an awesome weekend! (and I always hold judgement on sausages for the ones I've eaten).

I like sausage. I went to Divergent and thought it was good. The training went on too long though. I got bored of it.

My daughter saw Divergent Thursday and really enjoyed it. Although she's about as big a fan of BTMAs as I am so she came home and told me everything they forgot to put in the movie. :) But I've heard from several people that it was a good adaptation so I may have to see it in the theaters. And wow! Those are some sausages!

BOOOO! My weekend saved me from the drudgery of my desk job, but I treated it like garbage. (Okay, that's not entirely true, but I did waste most of it.)

Glad to hear Divergent was better than the reviews say. Alas, as I do with all movies these days, I'll be waiting until it's on DVD. As for sausages, I'm sorry, but I just don't see how liverwurst cracks the top 10. You can argue with me all you want but I'm NOT LISTENING.

I'm a big fan of you BOOING Monday. I'm reminded of the Simpson's episode where Homer boos Darryl Strawberry, saying that booing doesn't affect the players. Cut to Strawberry crying.
