I'm very sorry for the delay in this post. Procrastination has been a problem lately. I'd better get over this lazy habit though before school starts, or I'll be in major trouble!
Lately, we've been having a fairly busy couple of weeks. The two older boys took swimming lessons over the past week and a half and since we were so close to out friends' house, Mom would drop some of us off there. We girls had a fun time recording songs...all from the Hobbit, in case you were wondering. :) Funny thing was, I haven't watched the Hobbit or the Lord of the Rings, so I had to Youtube all the songs so that I could learn it. Listening to my friend sing it multiple times also helps!
Tiger Lily and I also recently watched The Hunger Games. We just finished Catching Fire yesterday. To be honest, I think I prefer the books to the movie, though it's probably because I read the books before I watched the movies. ;) Mom prefers that we do it that way, although I have to say, sometimes the movie ends up rather disappointing because it's missing favourite parts or the characters look different or something like that! And in The Hunger Games (the movie, I mean) they (the film directors and such) make it ... a bit more inappropriate than I would like. I mean, where in the book do any of the characters swear? Also, I'm the kind of person who, after seeing something, will usually see it in vivid detail for quite awhile. Thus the reason why I
usually close my eyes during ...not-nice scenes :) Although, I don't think the movie emphasized too much on the killing, I'm not too sure since I closed my eyes whenever I knew a scary part was coming (another good reason for the book first ;))
Have you read or watched (or both) The Hunger Games before? What did you think of it?
And now, after that somewhat lengthy ramble, comes the real reason why this post is here. :)
Day 161: August 7, Friday: Recording Time!
