A book, a movie and a concert  
Okay, seems like I CAN find things to post about here.

The weather has been nice this weekend and has improved my mood GREATLY!

The book: I spent a few hours on Friday night and a few yesterday afternoon reading Ball and Chain by Abigail Roux. Book 8 in the Cut and Run series. This series of books (and t's related Sidewinder series) are books that I drop everything else I'm doing and read. I am so in love with these characters it isn't funny. This book was a really fun read, quite the whodunit, and I thoroughly enjoy it! Book two in the Sidewinder series is out in June (yes, I already have it pre ordered), and who knows when Book 9 in the Cut & Run series will be written (I believe it's the final book which makes me sad, but then again Ty and Zane have been through enough! It's time for their happy ending!).

The movie: This morning I went and saw 300 Rise of an Empire. I really liked it. I love the mix of CGI and live action -- it was just like the first 300 movie. And the first film is very much a part of this movie, too. Oh and watching Sullivan Stapleton on the big screen wasn't hard to take, either. Yep, will get the Blu Ray when it's out.

The concert: Apparently Rachel and I ARE going to the 30 Seconds to Mars concert this summer (it's not until August 13). Someone else is getting us tickets, (but he's totally reliable, so I'm not worried). The local rock stations are making a big deal of this tour because 30STM is touring with Linkin Park. But you know what? Rachel and I are SO NOT interested in LP, so we'll leave after 30STM has their set. I also hope we get to meet Jared, Shannon and Tomo again!!!! So I'm excited about this! Since out of all the concerts announced so far, this is the only one I'm interested in attending...and now I am! YAY!

Okay, going to go back to the book I was reading before Ball and Chain arrived in the mail on Friday (this book is Possesion by J.R. Ward) and continue with that.

At least until 9:00 when The Walking Dead is on! Sundays at 9:00 is my NOBODY BETTER BOTHER ME time. LOL!

Glad to hear that you are feeling more like yourself again. And sometimes it's nice having events planned that are months away. Gives you something to look forward to!

Yeah, having things on the calendar to look forward to is always a good thing!

I'm so excited for the 300 sequel. I loved the first movie and the sequel has Lena Headey AND Eva Green \o/

OOOH I just dl'd my copy this morning! Now I have three books to read \0/ (I forgot the 2nd Sidewinder wasn't out until June...) And really? the next Ty and Zane is the final one? Where did you hear that? Bummer but yes, they need their happy ending for sure.

OOH we were thinking about going to see that, but I think we're gonna opt for just a really nice dinner out instead LOL.

YAY for the concert! Taht's awesome. Good for you.

I need to go put Sidewinder & Ball & Chain on my phone LOL.

I'm pretty sure I saw Abi post somewhere (can't remember if it was her Facebook or tumblr page) that book 9 is the final T&Z story.

I LOVED the first 300 movie so I had to go see this one. And even more after I found out Sullivan Stapleton had the lead role!

Ahh okay, well whatever she does, I hope she gives them a happy ending for sure.

Yup, 9 books, but Ty and Zane will pop up as guests in the Sidewinder stories after that :D

Good to know, as long as they get their happy ending LOL

I'm SO happy the weather here is starting to be nicer and almost warm as well... like seriously! I'm so sick of the cold and lousy weather.

I'm only about to read Book 2 of "Cut & Run" but I'm already really in love with ty and Zane... they are awesome and I can totally imagine that you enjoy them so much! :)

Yay for the 30STM conccert... that's gonna be so awesome :)

It's to the point most other m/m fictional couple pale in comparison to Ty & Zane! LOL! But there are some others I really love too.

I just hope the concert tickets don't fall through. But I'm pretty confident they won't.

It's so nice to have a good book that you can't put down - wish I had one now.

I just went to look up that concert, and the closest venue to us will be in Ca. or Co. *sigh* I've been wanting to go to a rock concert for a long time now, and I like Linkin Park... oh well, maybe someone else will be coming this summer.

This concert venue is almost 100 miles away.... But it'll be worth the drive!

I think for every gem of a book I find, there are half a dozen that are just meh! LOL!
