I love to read. Walking into a bookstore is nothing short of heaven. It doesn't matter if it's a gigantic Barnes&Noble with a snazzy cafe in the corner or a tiny independent in a strip mall. Although, it does bug me that the Barnes&Noble cafe "serves Starbucks" but doesn't actually call themselves a Starbucks. What's the deal with that? I think they just use that as an excuse for when they mess up my overpriced coffee. But a poorly made coffee is just one of the perils an avid reader faces. The more insidious danger is picking up a bad read.
First, let me say that I didn't have a lot of hope for this show. It's based on a series of teen novels, of which I've read the first two, and although they were pretty good, they were definitely geared towards teens. You know, a lot of "Gee, does he like me?" and "Who are you taking to the dance?" type of stuff. So, I watched the first episode fully expecting that I might not make it to the second. And then they introduced Damon.
I love tribbles! Somewhere packed away in a box in the attic, along with a working Star Trek communicator, is a tiny little grey tribble that purrs when you squeeze his body. I wish I knew where, exactly, because my youngest daughter has just discovered the joys of ClassicTrek and wants to be a tribble for Halloween. A blue tribble. Why blue? Because she's only 5 and she wants what she wants. A lot of people would probably find this a weird costume choice, but I was so happy I could have cried. I'm growing my geek, baby!
