    1) What's the last book you read? Did you like it?
    Well, I read three books over vacation (The Fault in Our Stars, TIny Beautiful Things, and Heads in Beds). They were all good, but Heads in Beds was my favorite. It's a memoir by someone who spent his life working in hotels. Its really funny and you learn lots of interesting things about the hotel industry and what goes on behind the scenes. I highly recommend it (and the other two too!)

    Well, it's my birthday tomorrow so I'm going out with BF and some friends for dinner in the city (a cool Japanese BBQ place), and then out to a bar nearby.

    Just plain, or peppers, onions, and goat cheese when I make it myself

    8) What's your favorite kind of cheese?
    I don't think there's a cheese I don't like, but goat cheese or fresh mozzarella is probably my favorite.

    9) How long have you been with your SO?
    Two years on Tuesday!

    10) Are you a cat person, a dog person, both, or neither?
    Both, pretty equally, but I only have a dog right now

    11) What kind of car do you drive?
    A currently non-starting Chevy Prism. Belongs to BF, but I'm trying to convince him we should buy something new since this car is on its last legs.

    12) What's the last movie you saw in the theater? Did you like it?
    I think it was "Life of Pi" which I really liked.

    ETA: Actually it was Zero Dark Thirty on Xmas Eve and I freakin loved it.

    Two Graves by Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child. Yes, I love (pretty much) all their books.

    2) What are you up to this weekend?
    Friday night I'm meeting some people out for swanky cocktail (not really my scene, but it is theirs). Saturday DH and I are working out together, going to the liqour store and BBB (maybe others too), having date night dinner and then going to a birthday party. Sunday is cleaning, snuggles, maybe watching the probowl. I also need to go to work a few times for some random stuff in there.

    3) What color are your finger and toe nails?
    Unpainted.  I almost never do my fingers, and I decided to give my toes a break. No one sees them in winter anyway.

    In descending order of frequency: water, coffee, diet coke, soy milk

    5) What alcoholic beverage do you drink most often?

    Mozzarella, pepperoni, bell pepper, onion, olives (a supreme, minus sausage). 

    8) What's your favorite kind of cheese?
    This is too hard. For an all purpose cheese and crack situation I like extra sharp white cheddar. I'll eat pretty much any cheese you put in front of me. Even the stinky stuff.

    9) How long have you been with your SO?
    4 years and 4 months.

    10) Are you a cat person, a dog person, both, or neither?
    Dog.

    Currently reading a fiction novel I got for Christmas called Gone Girl. Basically it's about a husband and wife. The wife disappears. The chapters flip flop between her story (from the past) to his story (current day). Mystery of whether or not the husband was involved. I really like it so far.

    I haven't read the books so you're right about that. I hate when movies butcher books or they completely change stuff.

    I don't know if anyone's ever read "My Sister's Keeper" by Jodi Picoult but, that is a prime example. I was so mad when I saw it.

    Posted by ravenray[/QUOTE]
    I read the book. I've read it half a dozen times. So they embellished the crap out of some stuff. IMO, it didn't mean the movie was bad. Just different from the book. You should have expected it to be different. I love the characters and Middle Earth so much that the plot deviations didn't really throw me off too much.

    Steign, I read My Sister's Keeper. Its one of my favorite books and I was so mad when I saw the movie. I think it's okay to change some things, but to completely change the ending, for me it ruined the entire dynamic of the story. I was so disappointed.

    I actually have read the book (several times) but I still realy enjoyed the movie. I didn't enjoy the overuse of CGI but I thought they did a good job with it.
