Poor Camels

Thoughts of the weekend:
  • I do not like how people are dogging on Jennifer Lawrence for possibly being Katniss in the Hunger Games movie, since pretty much everyone who is down on her follows up with, "I haven't seen Winter's Bone."  First of all, Winter's Bone was beautiful.  Secondly, Jennifer was incredible in it-- tough, perfect at masking her emotions (as Katniss is), and completely without vanity.  I understand that she's too old for the part and that they may age up, but I kind of agree with that.  In a book, it's okay to read about fourteen year-olds killing each other (I guess?).  On film?  Maybe not so much.
  • I have four ratings on Goodreads for Don't Stop Now.  Problem is, it gives me an average of 3.5 stars, even though the site only shows that I have two five star and one four star rating.  Can people give hidden ratings?  That suck?
  • If you have forgotten about Amy Fisher (with good reason), it's time to revisit one of the three (or was it just two?) made-for-TV movies.  You'd think I'd recommend the Drew Barrymore one (why you'd think that, I'm not sure, but I'd think that, too), but I watched Casualties of Love: The Long Island Lolita Story starring Alyssa Milano this past week (well, not all of it, but was that really necessary?).  I highly recommend it, if mostly for the fact that Milano deserved an Emmy for a) acting like she was genuinely attracted to that guy and b) enduring the countless yeast infections I can only assume she contracted from wearing camel toe after camel toe-inducing pants.  Behold:
 Have a good weekend!

jennifer lawrence was incredible in winter's bone.

also, wow, amy fisher. didn't both of those movies premiere on the same night, at the same time? i have a strong memory of watching tv at my grandma's house in 1993 and flipping back and forth between amys.

Why aren't you two more disturbed by the pants? I love the Fisher memory, Carey! That's one for the books!
