Its been a long week kids.
My week started with freezing temps in H-Town and ended with rain everywhere.
Just another day in paradise.
The one thing I didn't have to worry about this week was cheesecake.
I've had this one penciled in for quite a while.
The big news this week is the opening of the first movie based on the final book in the Hunger Games trilogy.
Yes, they split in two. Thanks Harry Potter!
Yes, Mockingjay Part 1 is in your local mongoplex on 18 screens even as we speak.
Can we all just agree that we're tired of movie companies splitting up book-movies in order to cash grab desperate fans? Can we just finalize a series in a normal and reasonable fashion and then move on to gouging the public with multiple home video iterations.
Sorry, I got off course there.
Please say hello to this week's cheesecake, Natalie Dormer.
Ms. Dormer appears in Mockingjay as Cressida, the only character in the book, to my knowledge, named after a Toyota sedan.
Not content to simply flaunt her charms in Panem, Ms. Dormer has been popping up all over the Geek-o-sphere.
She put the moves on Steve Rogers in Captain America: The First Avenger.
She was Anne Boleyn in The Tudors.
The put the moves on Thor in Rush.
She vexes Sherlock Holmes on Elementary.
And, of course, she is the thrice and future queen of Westeros, Margaery Tyrell, on Game of Thrones.
She's winning the game kids.
And so are we.
Let's hit the links.
