I think I may be the only one in the world to not have seen The Hunger Games this weekend.
Not because I don't want to see it, because oh I definitely want to. But 1) it was my birthday weekend, and I spent a lot of it away and partying with friends. 2) I'm really weird about movie versions of books, and I'm not sure I trust any of my friends to see me like that. and 3) I'm also very weird about the crowds I see movies with, and I was a little weary of all the teens and tweens who would be fangirling like crazy. I mean, I'm Team Peeta all the way and all, but I refuse to squeal it when he comes on screen.
I'm also neurotic, but I sense you've guessed this.
In any case, no, I did not see the movie yet. I think I will Tuesday morning because the theaters around here have a special deal that the first Tuesday showings are only $6 - how can you pass that up?! It is pretty damn amazing that it did so well: $155 million over the weekend? $68 million on its opening day?! Best showing for a non-sequal...I'm so proud of a little YA book.
I am going crazy not having seen it though! I keep hearing so much about it, and while nothing can really be spoiled, per se, it still feels like I've got to avoid a lot of spoilers.
So, to abate my anticipation in seeing this film, I thought I'd post some humor! Hunger Games humor is like a weird twisted sickness, because it's like...teens killing teens isn't funny, but c'mon...so much fun!
|Not even joking, I laughed out loud. And sang it.|
This was also the inspiration for this post, because I had to share.
|HG pick up lines. I'd probably give it a thought if someone said them to me.|
|Ryan Gosling Hey Girl Meme + HG = pure awesome.|
|I laughed. I've also heard Katpee as one one of the hybrid names.|

|Because I think we'd all give up on him if he said he didn't like HG.|
Anyone else not see the movie?
And if you did, tell me if you liked it!
(But please, no spoilers :))
