Yes you read the title of the post correctly. Why is it called Friday Randomness you ask? Because at 7pm on Thursday night after dealing with 150 k-5 fifth graders, a football game and a crapton of pain in my broken foot, I was too tired to write a review. So today’s post is a bunch of randomness that I’ve been thinking about, reading and watching lately.
#1 Charlie Hunnam as Christian Grey
There has been a lot of chatter about this casting this week, and while I’ve read some posts about it I have to say that I’m not as bothered by it as some are. For one when he cleans up really well. And two while a lot of people didn’t like the books there are a lot people who do, me being one. I’m curious to see how well they pull off the movie.
# 2 Christmas Books
A couple of weeks ago while I was looking on Netgalley I saw a bunch of Christmas books and I of course had to get a bunch of them, and have spent the last two weeks reading nothing by Christmas books, and I have to admit they’ve made me excited for the holiday’s this year. There are a lot of great holiday romance stories coming out. These are just a few of the ones I’ve read and loved. Sleigh Bells in the Snow by Sarah Morgan, Kissing Under the Mistletoe by Bella Andre, Christmas on Main Street by JoAnn Ross & Susan Donovan, Christmas on 4th Street by Susan Mallery, Take Me Home For Christmas by Brenda Novak, and Holiday Kisses by Jaci Burton and Shannon Stacey.
#3 TV Shows
I love Netflix. We don’t have regular tv so unless it’s on Netflix we don’t watch it. We rediscovered Flashpoint and had a marathon viewing session. We’ve also rediscovered Alias and are completely hooked all over again on this show. There are three very good reasons to watch these shows. On Flashpoint there’s Sergio de Zio and David Paetkua and Michael Vartan on Alias.
Sergio di Zio
So the questions now are….what do you all think of Charlie as Christian Grey? What have you all been reading? And what show hotties have you discovered or re-discovered?
