Self just made her first batch of oatmeal/chocolate chip/raisin cookies ever and they are really BAD.
Good thing she got an alert for a new installment of the Detective Mellark series (Dear readers, indeed yes: There is a detective series written with Peeta Mellark as the head of a Detective Agency and Katniss Everdeen as one of his gumshoes)
In this installment of the Detective Mellark series, Katniss and Peeta decide to compete in a TV game show called “The Marriage Game” (Why? Who knows? Because detective agencies run short of funds and the quickest way to raise them is by competing in a television game show?)
Anyhoo, Katniss and Peeta are one of four couples left standing for the final round. The other three couples are:
- Primrose Everdeen/ Rory Hawthorne
- Gale Hawthorne/ Madge Undersee
- Annie Cresta/ Finnick Odair
One of the questions is: “What is your partner’s favorite thing to nibble on at the movies?”
The interviewer is, of course, none other than Caesar Flickerman.
Over to you, Gale and Madge!
Gale: Um. That’s a hard one. I’ll go with Twizzlers.
(Madge frowns and turns over her card. It says: HIS FINGERNAILS)
Gale: My fingernails! Why would you say that?
Madge: Oh my God, Gale! Look at these things! (Grabs Gale’s hands and holds them up. Camera zooms in for a close-up) LOOK! LOOK! I should dip your fingertips in gasoline to keep you from biting them.
Caesar: Oh, Madge. They are stubby. You should have Octavia work on them.
Madge: That’s a good idea. (To Gale) First thing tomorrow, you’re getting a mani-pedi.
Stay tuned, dear blog readers. Stay tuned.
