Don’t Know What To Read?

Stuck for suggestions for a something to read? Going stir crazy with winter? MLCWO to the rescue.

How about checking out the new book of short stories by Kelly Link? The stories described as eery, gothic, surreal are something that might hit the spot on a cold winters day. HERE Read more about Kelly HERE.

However, if you are stuck and can’t get to the library The Guardian has got a free read available on their website. Despite the fact it appears for children the story has an interesting take and it is free. Free. HERE.

Enjoy!

Okay. So this is going to be on MASSIVE post about the ENTIRE Guild Hunter Series by Nalini Singh because there were 7 books (not including the novellas which I still have to read) and I feel that one LARGE post would be good. Otherwise you will see 7 posts of me ABSOLUTELY FANGIRLING!!!!!!!!

Flying Rant

Have you ever flown before?

You most likely have. Even if it was for a short jaunt to a few states away. Now, the majority of you, actually the overwhelming majority of you haven’t flown on a private jet. If that’s how you fly, then lucky you, and this post probably won’t pertain to you per se.

But the rest of us, who have the fly with the great unwashed will understand the pain which I am about to lay out for you. I’m just going to lay it out how it is. No sugar-coating.

Flying is a SERIOUS pain in the ass.

It’s not like it used to be. You used to get preferential treatment if you paid a little more, early boarding if you had a child, and the elderly used to get early boarding as well. But no. All that is gone.

You have a little kid, you can wait with everyone else. You’re elderly, you can do the same, unless you’re in a wheel chair or are injured.

Now, I fly United (previously Continental), so I can only comment on what I see with them, but all around, the complains are quite the same. With United, you get boarded by group (which is new), and of course, on my most recently flight, I was group 5. The last group to board. Now that is whatever. I don’t care when I board. But…once on the plane, I wish I was number 1. They’ve limited how much you can bring on the plane, and they let you bring two carry on’s; one for the overhead and one for under the seat before you. That’s great and all, but being group 5 means….THERE IS NO OVERHEAD ROOM AS THE IDIOTS BEFORE AND BEHIND YOU TOOK YOUR SPOTS!

>An annoyed huff would leave from her lips.<

So you shove their shit out of the way and get your bag in. FINALLY. But you have the second bag, which, as I sat in an aisle seat, DIDN’T FIT because apparently they put the life vest before you in the aisle, so, I couldn’t fit it. Fantastic. -.-

Okay, so all that is out of the way. You sit down. Thank god. You made it. Now you can just re——.

The seats. Oh god. The seats. I mean come on. They don’t even put you sitting up right. It’s like they’re trying to push your head into your legs, making your torso and legs at a less than 90 degree angle.

How are you supposed to get comfortable sitting like that?

No. Freaking. Clue.

Eventually you can put your seat back a little bit. Key words. “Little bit.”

I mean, this is all just a pain in the ass.

You also have the food. I mean, thankfully since I went international they gave food. But it was like a snack. The portions are smaller, the food really isn’t great, and it doesn’t come until an hour into the flight.

And after my flight was delayed almost two hours because of gate changes and then a failure with the baggage belt, I was hungry. So, we didn’t eat till like 930pm or so.

Overall I hated it. Flying used to be enjoyable, but not anymore.

You’re constantly shoving the arm of the idiot next to you out of the way. And god-forbid you want to use the restroom and someone is coming your way AWAY from the bathroom, or visa versa. You have to like dive into the seat of a stranger to get out of the way.

And if you need to go when the food cart is in the way. Good luck. You’re gonna wish you wore your depends because they take forever and WILL NOT move.

Honestly, I can’t even say pay a little extra money to go first class because A) it’s not even a little bit of money. It’s a lot. And B) because first class isn’t much better. I flew Business a little while ago, maybe 2 years or so, and the seats were much smaller than when I had flown it once before, and overall it wasn’t anything HORRIBLY special. If you are going long distance in economy, I wish you luck and god-speed because I could barely survive 6 and a half hours. I watched that “time until destination” clock like my life depended on it.

Thankfully there were movies, but, that only helps so much.

But then on the way back, ughhhhhh. So like my button on the seat that helps it recline, I pushed it to recline slightly yet the damn bugger got stuck. So, for the rest of my flight, if I put pressure on my seat it would fall backwards. So, for the flight, which was 8 hours because of the tailwind, I had to sit up straight. To say I was unhappy was an understatement.

If you have similar experiences, please tell me and let’s get this rant going. Because I can’t be the only one who hates this. I know I’m not.

So where y’all who hate flying? Raise your hand! >Raises her hands and legs and waves them around.<

Review

Wow…just wow. Honestly this movie scared the living CRAP out of me. It was REALLY well done, not bringing in any of the gruesome things which most horror movies just SEEM to need to have (such as SAW (do not watch if you dislike blood and torture)). This played on your real life fears of things that scared you such as clowns/dolls, doors opening on their own, and things which just scared the living bejeezus out of you.

I can honestly, and happily, say that I left my seat about two times from jumping, and successfully screamed once. My dad even had the hairs on his arms stand up, which is quite hard to do. It was such a successful movie that I couldn’t sleep and then my dad just HAD to scare me by placing our old, and creepy, clown under my pillow. I nearly had a heart attack and it wasn’t funny. BUT, we still had a good laugh.

I couldn’t breathe after the movie and my heart was in my throat but it wasn’t so scary that you felt sick. There was almost NO special effects and I really liked that.

It’s a great Halloween movie but DON’T watch it alone, otherwise it will not end will for anyone. I would walk around my house with a knife and lock myself in a closet or something x.x

But anyway, overall it was REALLY well done. It is rated R and fits its rating, so I suggest that you be at least 16 to see this movie. I saw younger kids watching it, and know of them see it, and this was NOT appropriate.

But definitely check this out tomorrow or even watch it during Halloween. ^.^

Let me know what you think and enjoy!!!!

Warning! This trailer is quite scary and will make you jump. Do not have your volume too loud!
You have been warned.
