Flamingos? No, Henry did it. What about Seinfeld?

Did anyone ever watch the show “Seinfeld?” You know how it was a show about nothing? It seems to me that is how this blog is going to shape up. A blog about nothing. Well, I suppose a more accurate description would be a blog about everything, or anything.

What I mean to say is that I won’t be limiting myself to one subject all the time (i.e. Book, Cars, Flamingos, etc.), I’ll talk about all of them . . .

Here goes: Book – I love books! Cars – They get me where I need to go, I’m a fan. Flamingos – Well, I can’t say I know very much about flamingos. I think we can be safe in assuming I won’t blog about them too often.

Today’s topic of interest? Well, I might as well talk about what’s on my mind . . . Harper’s Island (at the moment). (Spoilers ahead. Through Episode 11)

I went back and re-watched some episodes (two that I had missed) and I have theory’s.

First. They killed off my favorite characters! Okay and right here I’m going to stop and say. If you’re watching a television show where they kill off at Least One of the characters every week. Don’t . . . I repeat . . . DO NOT get attached to Anyone!!! DUH! You would think this would be obvious! Apparently not to me.

Anyway, back to my subject. They killed off Cal and Chloe! What were they thinking? I didn’t care if everyone else died as long as Cal and Chloe got to walk off together into the sunset. *Sigh, sob*

So now, my theory’s . . . From about Episode 2 I was sure it was Jimmy. The killer I mean. He just seemed the type. However, now with all signs pointing to him I’m sure it’s not him. And I’m thinking that it is he and Abby who will walk off together into the sunset. For half a second I thought one might die defending the other but that’s been done (*Sob* My Cal!).

So, who is the killer? If I had to pick someone right now I would say Henry. Although, wouldn’t it be interesting if it were Trish . . . (I doubt it). No Henry has my vote. He seems to stop Abby from going after Wakefield any time he can. Not too mention did anyone see the way he laid into Shane? I thought he was the mild mannered groom but Man!

So, you think Henry will kill Trish and that’s how we’ll all know that he is evil? Who knows. Theory’s are everywhere! (I hope this isn’t what happens. If Henry is the psycho I at least hope poor Trish can live, she’s been through enough!!!)

My living/dead list (in the end)?
Abby – Alive
Jimmy – Alive
Sully - ? Now, I don’t mind Sully (apart from his treatment of Cal) However! In my world it’s NOT FAIR that Cal dies and Sully lives so on that note . . . I hope he bites it! lol (Sorry, I just really liked Cal.)
Madison – Most likely alive. (Would they really kill a kid?)
Shea - ? I don’t know on this one either. I would say Dead but would they leave Madison parentless? Eh, maybe they will kill Madison . . .)
Danny – Dead
Henry – Dead
Wakefield – Dead, Duh!
Trish – I don’t know how to call this one, Hmmm . . .

Reading (Angels and Demons)

Do we have any readers in the house?? Hehe. I love reading. I decided that this year I was going to read a certain number of books. This number I’m not going to mention because I’m embarrassingly behind.

However, I have read a few. The most recent being Angels and Demons. This is actually the second time I’ve read this book but it’s just so good that I had to read it again. (I enjoyed the movie very much too!)

This book is Robert Langdon’s first adventure. Before the DaVinci Code (Another Awesome book!!) It follows him to the Vatican in an effort to find an antimatter bomb that is threatening to destroy the city. Not too mention trying to stop a crazed killer from publicly executing four priests. All this time the election of the new Pope is happening inside the Vatican.

The characters are great, all of them. So well written. Dan Brown is a master Story teller and I’m eagerly counting down the days (79) until the release of his next book The Lost Symbol (also a Robert Langdon story)! I can’t wait!

I’ve read all of Dan Brown’s book actually and they are all excellent. Highly recommended. Other books that I’ve read recently include:

Tantalize - Cynthia Leitich Smith
Frozen Fire – Tim Bowler
Romeo and Juliet – William Shakespeare (*Sigh* I usually hate, very much, stories with sad endings but this book was just wonderful)
Twilight Series – Stephanie Meyer

Currently I’m reading The Ghost by Robert Harris. I can’t tell you much because I only recently started it. All I can say is that I haven’t lost interest yet.

Brand new

Hi! I'm new to this site but it looked like a lot of fun and a place to vent! I have my twitter but sometimes you just need more than 140 characters to get something off your chest.

So this will be the place for that!

I suppose I should tell you some about myself. Well, I'm a wife and mother (one son). We live in Oklahoma where the thermometer is currently reading 101 degrees! I hate the heat! I used to live in Pennsylvania but when I married my husband he wanted to move this direction. Ugh! I'm READY to move back home!!! NOW!!!

There's no one really around us that we're close too. My husband's great aunt is here and a couple cousins but that's it. I'm the sole cargiver to my son, as I don't trust leaving him with them. Not that they're bad, hehe, I just don't feel they're observant enough to handle my little bundle of energy.

Our town is extremely small and there isn't a movie theatre or anything like that for miles and miles and miles. Twenty-six miles to be exact. We don't have a mall *Sigh* or much of anything else to do.

My hobbies include writing and reading, message boards are great and facebook and twitter are my home. Hehe. I love baking and decorating cakes but, while I LOVE eating cake, I don't care to eat the whole thing myself. So I rarely get to bake.

What else? We go to a great church and I have the best friend a girl could ask for! But she lives in Maine and it's been FAR too long since we've seen each other. (Hopefully we'll change that in September!)

Okay, I'm done now . . . Until next time . . .
