'THE HUNGER GAMES'

Today I met a good friend. We decided to walk all the way around Ferry Meadows together just to blow out some of the cobwebs. It left me feeling a little puffed to say the least. It was a lovely afternoon. :)

We stopped off at the cafe for a quick cup of tea and to catch up on some news together. Whilst we were inside drinking our tea the heavens opened. It was a really heavy shower, however we were so lucky as it seemed to stop by the time we were back outside again. As we left the cafe there was a beautiful site ahead of us. There was this lovely rainbow which seemed to appear over the lake. It looked stunning. :)

LOL when I arrived back at the carpark there was an incredibly large puddle surrounding my car. Hehe it looked as if I was about to get into a boat rather than a car. I had to take baby steps and I was afraid to put my foot down hard in case i dribbled water into my shoes. I feel totally refreshed and all of the fresh air has done me a world of good. :)


Later this evening I went to the cinema to see 'The Hunger Games'.  What a brilliant Sci-Fi film this was. The film is directed by Gary Ross and it is based on a novel of the same title by Suzanne Collins.   Actress Jennifer Lawrence is absolutely fabulous. She plays the character Katniss Everdeen.  Katniss Everdeen volunteers in her younger sister's place to enter the games. She is forced to play against folk who have prepared for the games all of their lives. The games are a televised annual event whereby a boy and a girl are selected as 'Tributes' from each of the 12 districts. It's a punishment for a past rebellion against the government. Katniss's aim is to return home to District 12 as a winner. Does she win the games alone or does she win along side her partner?

The film reminded me of one of my fun day outings to the 'Spy Games' last year. Heck! I even had to shoot a bow and arrow. ;)

The only thing which wasn't clear to me...when they returned to Panem, who does Katniss end up in a relationship with?  Will it be her Tribute partner or her long suffering and caring boyfriend who was waiting patiently for her return home?  To be or not to be, that is the question? :) Look out for the 'Romeo and Juliet' Shakespearean scene. :)

I won't spoil the film entirely. It is definitely one to go and watch. I loved the film. :)  I'm famished now. ;)
