I said I wouldn’t be able to post on Thanksgiving and Black Friday. Well, Sunday Chris said he could come down that night. He left to go back up to NJ this morning. I did get talk to him about our trip to Las Vegas.
Thanksgiving was nice. My mother did come down. She left on Sunday morning. We went to my great-aunt’s house. Some of the family was there. My uncle decided to give me his camcorder that takes pictures instead of me getting a new camera. The only problem is that he didn’t give me an AC adapter and he said I might have to get a new battery for it. I looked everywhere for a battery and an ac adapter for that camcorder. None of the stores around here sells it.
So on Black Friday I got both on Walmart.com. I have no idea if they will work. They are supposed to arrive here on Friday. I also got a camera case for the camcorder, but it’s a little too small. I got a duvet. It’s a 3D pink rose design. It’s supposed to arrive tomorrow. I also got some new tights and a new wallet. I used my Amazon gift cards to get some pink booties and a pink dress. They are supposed to be here today. I hope the dress and shoes fit. I also got a pink cardigan to wear with the dress. I also got washcloths. I also got some eyeshadow and makeup. I also got some jeans.
Last year I had watched all the Dollanganger movies. When I watched If There be Thorns, I really wanted to read the book. I had found out the Overdrive had the ebook, but I didn’t have a recent library card. Before I got the ebook, I told my hairdresser about it. She said I should read all the books, not just the third one. So I read the first book. But then I noticed that Overdrive didn’t have the second book. So I read some of the samples from other sources.
Then recently I found out they had the second book, Petals on the Wind. So I got it and decided to read the rest of the series. Sadly they still don’t have the fourth book so I have to read it online.
Petals on the Wind takes place after the first book. The three children try to go to Florida, but Carrie is really sick. Luckily, a black woman works for a doctor and helps them out. That doctor takes them in. Cathy later marries a male dancer named Jullian. He gets killed in a car wreck. She has his baby. Her son is named Jory. Carrie does fall in love but later kills herself. This drives Cathy to go ahead with her plan to get revenge against her mother. She has an affair with her mother’s husband. She ends up having his kid. She names the other son Bart. In the end, her mother’s husband dies in a fire that her mother set. And the mother goes insane.
This book series is sick and twisted. Now I’m reading If There Be Thorns, and the Anita Blake book set came available too. So it looks like I will reading alot over this holiday.
You can find this book at Wordery.com, Amazon.com, Downpour.com, Walmart.com, and Kobo.com.

This week’s movie is The Monkey King 2. Like I said last week, I wanted to see this because of a martial art book series by Kylie Chan. The Monkey King does make an appearance in one book I read. The movie has Aaron Kwok, Kelly Chen, and Li Gong.
Warning: there is one sad part.
The Monkey King 2 takes place after the first one. The Monkey King was banned to a mountain for 500 years. A monk goes to the mountain. He is chased by a tiger and releases the monkey king. The goddess of mercy was telling him to go with the monk to the East. The monk was on a journey to get some scrolls at a temple in the East. On their way, they met two demons. One was a pig and the other was a blue muscle man. The demons said they were to go with them too. Soon they were in a town where children were taken. A rumor started that it was a white witch that was taking the children. But it was actually a king who was cursed. The white witch wasn’t mythical. She was real. She wanted to eat the monk to give her immortality. In the end, the white witch dies inside the monk and the monk asks the monkey king to kill him.
I really liked this movie. I read that there will be a third movie. Next week I’m watching the League of Gods.
You can find this movie at Amazon.com and Walmart.com.
The How to Get Away with Murder season finale was so predictable. I was sadly right about who was under the sheet. I do want to see next season.
In the season finale, we learn that Annalise is accused of a murder. It turns out that Rebecca’s body was found in the woods. Wes wants immunity to testify against her. Annalise finds out that is the DA is investigating her. So she comes up with a plan for her dilemma. She calls everyone to her house. But then the house blows up. Laurel does wake up, and it is revealed who is under the sheet. (at first, I thought I was wrong and that it was Nate) It was Wes. Just like I predicted. Only the twist was that it was revealed that Wes was dead before the fire. That is why I want to see next season to find out how he died and who killed him.
Next season starts in Jan.
You can find the other seasons at Walmart.com and Amazon.com.

Many years ago I had some pretty patent shoes with little heels. I loved those shoes. A few years ago my mother got into one of cleaning moods and kept fussing about the shoes. They were scuffed up, but I didn’t care. I could call them black and white shoes. She refused and made me throw them away.
A few months later I made her take me shopping for some more white shoes since she threw those away. We could hardly find any white shoes in the store. I found some at last. They were little white sandal dress shoes made by Nina.
But one year when I wore them at Easter, my feet froze. So I looked up some shoes at payless. They had some cute ones, but they were only online. We went to the store anyway. Their shoe sizes aren’t normal. I found some cute white ones, but they are too wide. But I got them anyway. I did wear them to church a few times.
Flash forward to the present, I am hoping to take a trip soon with Chris. I thought about making a strap for those payless shoes. Chris is way taller than me and I usually can’t keep up with him. But when I tried them on a few days ago, my big toe is hitting the end on them. So I have decided to give them away.
You can find similar shoes at Amazon.com, and Ebay.com.
