Health And Hunger Games.

Health Update - I saw the doctor on Friday. We talked about the dizzy spells. She looked in my ears and said everything looked fine. She also said there is a virus going around with the exact symptoms that I have. I asked what I could do about it and she said, "Wait it out." Boo that. Then she suggested that I take a decongestant. But I don't like taking those things at all. The last time I took one I thought my heart was going to explode. I already have a problem with being over-stimulated real easily and jittery and stuff - we don't need to make the problem worse. She said the decongestant would speed up the recovery but either way, time is the real healer. If I don't feel better by this weekend, I can call up my ear doctor just to double check on that end.

In Hunger Games news...

I was pretty damn happy with the movie. It was fairly true to the book - just a couple of little character moments that I missed but I recognize weren't essential to the story. And you know something kind of odd - when I read the book, I was a Gale!girl all the way. But by the end of the movie, I had a pretty major crush on Peeta. I mean, I loved Peeta in the book but I was all ready to run off into the woods with Gale. But Peeta was so sweet and cute and wonderful in the movie - I have quite the little crush now. Kudos to that actor. And oh yeah...I cried. Actually less hysterically than I thought - it was more a silent stream of tears during a few key moments. And in casting kudos - Woody Harrelson was the exact perfect Haymitch my heart could ever want. He nailed it.

Today at therapy, one of the aides asked me what I thought about the movie and I said, "Well, in the books I was all Gale, Gale, Gale, Gale is my man and then in the movie Peeta was just so sweet and adorable and the way he looked at her, he was just SO in love and I walked out having this little crush on him and now I don't know who to love...Gale or Peeta?! I don't wanna choose!"

Then I look over and some little old lady getting her ice pack is sitting there laughing at me! So I said to the little old lady, "Well, I think it says something about the actor that played Peeta that he could sway me from my Gale-love. Good for him."

Everyone within hearing distance started laughing, including the little old lady.

I feel like there were more things to tell you, but I am blanking now.

Oh...Cafepress.com is having a sale through the end of the month. 20% off all tees if you get there by Saturday.

In sum: After last week's Supernatural, I am in desperate need of domestic Dean/Cas fic. Anybody got a rec for me?
