The Girl who can’t read “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo”.

I recently downloaded the trilogy of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo onto my E-Reader.  I read the first book with great interest, it was AWESOME, I love Ms.Salander.. she’s a character — I love how she thinks, schemes and get’s even with her enemies.. 

I finish the Dragon Tattoo and a week or two later start into the 2nd of the trilogy, The Girl who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest.  I begin reading the book and it sort of picks up where the last book ended, but there seems to be a bit of a gap in the events.  I finish reading the book with great interest, it was AWESOME.  I love Salander and Michael Bloomquist even more than I did after the first book.  I then begin to read the 3rd book in the trilogy “The Girl who Played with Fire”.  I launch myself into the story and within 10 or so pages my brain says: “Wait a minute – I thought that guy was dead????”,   I read a few more pages and it becomes glaringly apparent that I’ve somehow managed to read the books OUT OF ORDER!  Yes, that’s right!! I read the The Girl who kicked the Hornets nest as the 2nd book instead of the 3rd!!  Well, it’s too late to UNDO that mistake, isn’t it?  I’m now filling in all the hole’s AND my questions are being answered with every page I turn.. I wouldn’t recommend reading a trilogy: 1, 3, 2.  but, in hindsight, It’s an interesting brain exercise..

Mukluks, Cell Phones in the Bathroom and Cheap Scotch Tape

Jun 6-2012

Here’s a few of my observations / thoughts from the last week or so.

I was driving to work and I saw this young teenager girl wearing short shorts, a t-shirt and a pair of Mukluks!!

Like these:

What kind of fashion statement is this?  Where did it come from?  Has anybody else seen this where they live?

Why do people go into a public bathroom and the first thing they do when they get in there, after sitting down, is make personal phone calls?  Don’t they think that the person on the other end can hear that they are in the bathroom?  First of all – you’ve got “the echo”, any one with a half an ear can hear the toilets flushing, water running, and the roar of the hand dryers.  I don’t get it…

I’ve decided that life is too short to use cheap scotch tape, underwear that doesn’t fit properly, and cheap scratchy towels!!
