The one where I don't post for 2 days

Whoops!  I have an excuse!  Last post I talked about my book slump.  Well I think I solved it!  I went meandering around a book store (which was completely unnecessary because I have SO many books to read already. It's like looking in your fridge for something to eat after you've just gone shopping and not wanting to eat ANYTHING so you go out to eat. how lame)  and saw Crank by Ellen Hopkins.  I've seen these books around at the bookstore before but the weird size of the book kind of turned me off to them.  Stupid I know.  Recently I've been seeing a lot of posts about Ellen Hopkins books being on the ban list and also because September, 14th is the release of the final book in the Crank trilogy so I thought "eh why not."

Now, I haven't started reading it yet but I did take a look at the text inside.  I really hope that the format doesn't distract me enough to bother/discourage me from reading it.

My second excuse is that the Football season has officially started! YAY!!

I am a huge Steelers fan

But I think Troy's hair could be just a tad bit shorter  :D

However even though the Steelers are my team, the are not my "original"team.  I'm just having an affair with them but I think it will last.

The team that is deep in my heart is the Green Bay Packers.  But don't talk to me about Farve, I mostly just want to punch him in the face.

I loved Crank. I hope you do, too. And I love football. Not the Steelers (please don't punch me in the face!)...I am a die-hard New Englander, so the Patriots will always have my heart. (But I secretly love cute little teams like the Titans. They're adorable!)

Best commercial EVER.

And I did love Crank. Patriots are an excellent team! I secretly love the Texans. Have you seen how cute their quarterback is? yum!
