We saw BOUNTY HUNTER on Friday night. It was okay, I was amused in some places. I didn’t think it was as good as THE PROPOSAL.
I’ve been starting books and putting then aside, and starting another one. Every once in a while I’ll go through this faze. Then I found an older book copyright 1987. It was in a pile my sister had given me. I read half way through it when the hero said:
“Damn it Clara! Grab the rope! You stupid bitch!”
And I was done. Immediately DNF (Did Not Finish). When the hero says that to the heroine in a time of danger, I’m done. Danger is when all pretense is stripped away and we see the Real Person. I didn’t like the Real Person this hero turned out to be. I knew then that I’d never like him. I’m hoping Clara grabs the freaking rope, wraps it around the hero’s neck and pulls tight. But that could just be me. We all have those personal buttons that trips our DNF switch.
And in other news, there has been a tiny crack in Wizard’s Anti-Dog Armor. We actually went to the animal shelter on Saturday! We were there about 20 minutes, just looking. As soon as we walked into the puppy/small dog section, Wizard said, “Jen! This isn’t fair!” LOLOL!!! But this is just a first step, and Wizard could reinforce his Anti-Dog Armor at anytime. I’ll keep you up to date!
What about you guys? How was your weekend? What trips your DNF switch on reading?
