Happy Shark Week
Well Peeps…it’s Shark Week 2013 – which I find very exciting – and to kick off the Shark celebration I decided to deviate from my John Grisham books to re-read JAWS once again. I read it every couple of summers and I figured, hell, this is as good a time as any.
I love this book. It’s an easy read and a book you just can’t seem to put down. Although it’s quite different from the movie, I still love it. But seriously, nothing will really ever top JAWS….not even Sharknado (insert joke here). In honor of Shark Week, the powers-that-be should consider airing Sharknado once again*…y’know…just for a good laugh.
*Note: As much as I love Ian Ziering and would love him to recap his role of Steve Sanders (or anything else for that matter), I could not, would not bring myself to watch Sharknado…that disaster of a movie. However, if I can view it for what it is: A comedy/parody, I may be able to sit thru it. ……………….. On second thought….probably not.
I also decided that today, being a gorgeous August scorcher, I would go swimming. In a pool. Surrounded by chlorine and walls and tons of people. No sharks. But I thought of them.
So, now that the Shark Week kickoff is near, I’m going to sit with a glass of white wine (in honor of the great white shark – duh!), wearing my H&M JAWS t-shirt:
And sit in awe and admiration of the giant machines we’ve been bread to fear.
Sometimes I wish they could be a little more like this so I wouldn’t be afraid of the water:
Happy Shark Week, y’all!!
