Wow. So, it's finally here! The Hunger Games movie will be in theaters tonight/tomorrow at 12:01am. I've got my District 12 Tribute shirt on, my Mockingjay earrings, tickets, and swag bags for mah girlz...I'm ready!
I've been waiting so long. I can't believe it's here. I've been a huge fan of this trilogy since I read the first book in 2008...waited (im)patiently for Catching Fire and even more (im)patiently for Mockingjay. I have high expectations for the movie and I'm willing to bet that it doesn't disappoint. The cinematography looks amazing and it's filled with talented actors/actresses. I get major goosebumps every time I see a trailer. You would think after a while I'd become immune to the same 2 minutes of footage, but nope. Impulsive and Kiss are going with me tonight. I'm sure we will be the picture of perfect line waiters...except for the "provisions" in the form of tiny bottles I've purchased.
As a "Happy Hunger Games Day" surprise, I got an email from a guy who works with The Daily Beast and he asked my permission to include my Mockingjay tattoo into an article they posted today titled '10 Die-Hard 'Hunger Games' Fans and Tattoos'...it uses the terms "fanatical" and "extreme" to describe the 10 fans' tattoos that are in the gallery. (Mine is #5, in case you wanna take a peak) I am SO NOT "fanatical" or "extreme"
To wrap up this HG post, I'll leave you with some links...party ideas, free printables, and past posts about The Hunger Games. If you haven't read the books yet, DO IT! NOW. You could have the whole trilogy read over the weekend. No excuses.
