Geeky Cartoon Shirts, Gilmore Girls, Ghost Protocol, More Books, and Follow Friday

I am officially a cartoon geek as I bought three shirts last week, which were Thundercats (On clearance for $2.), Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles ($3), and a Grumpy shirt (paid full price at $8). I also bought Dungeons & Dragons: The Animated Series: Beginnings for $2.50, The Last Unicorn for $5, and Silver Hawks Volume One for $15, which are a few more examples of me being a cartoon geek. I just happened to go to the city over the weekend, which is rare for me. At Target I found a pair of Homer Simpson sleep pants for under six dollars. While I was there I bought Gilmore Girls Seasons 1 & 2 for only twenty dollars. I have no idea why I like this show. I never watched it while it was originally on, but I stumbled upon it early one morning and liked it. I also went to a much bigger Walmart, where I bought Elixir by Hilary Duff for $5.97. I didn't even know that she had written a book. Has anyone else read it or even heard of it?

Has anyone seen Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol? I finally saw it Tuesday on DVD. I don't care much for Tom Cruise, but I do like the Mission Impossible movies. The fourth is fast-paced, thanks to the director Brad Bird, and is one of the best action movies from 2011.

Other movies I picked up lately are: Cabin Fever and Cabin Fever 2: Spring Fever. 8 movie pack Horror collection featuring Bloody Murder; Bloody Murder 2, Junior; Severed; Children of the Dead; Creepy Crawlers; Deadly Species; and Carnivore.

A few books in the mail this week were: The Midwife of Venice by Roberta Rich courtesy of Gallery Books; Pirate Therapy and Other Curses by Mark A. Rayner; The Charlatan's Boy by Jonathan Rogers courtesy of Waterbrook Press; The Half-Stitched Amish Quilting Club by Wanda E. Brunstetter; My Stubborn Heart by Becky Wade, part of an upcoming blog tour; Forever Hilltop by Judy Baer, part of an upcoming blog tour; and The Mulit-Orgasmic Couple by Mantak Chia & Maneewan Chia, Douglas Abrams & Rachel Carlton Abrams, M.D. The latter is a nonfiction and is more adult oriented as the title suggests.

Question of the week: Fight! Fight! If you could have two fictional characters battle it out (preferably from books), who would they be and who do you think would win?

My answer: Being a vampire fiction fan, I would like to see who would win between Eric Northman from The Southern Vampire Mysteries and Damon Salvatore from The Vampire Diaries book series. I'm not for sure who would win, but it would be a bloody fight.


  1. Hopping through. I've never read Vampire Diaries. I really should. I think I'd like it.

  3. Ohh great answer! I've only read two books from both series but it sounds like it's going to be one heck of a fight! :)

    Have a great weekend!

    The books are better than the TV show.

  5. I haven't read the TVD books, but I watch the show so I'll have to say GO DAMON!

  6. Ooo good picks. I love Eric and Damon. I'd have to say Eric would win though. He's older, so in my opinion, he's more powerful. Anyway, new follower!
