Peeta, not Pita

I've got the fever.  No, not the Beiber-Fever you freaks.

I don't know why.  But, I'm totally in love with a fictional character.  I guess he is 17, just like the Biebs...

And, oh no!  Not him!  All you Twi-hards can keep your sulky, depressive, possessive, Edward Cullen...


Yes, I'm way too old to be so ridiculous.  But, I can't help myself.

The fact that everyone is getting into The Hunger Games just now (even though these incredibly awesome books have been out since FOREVER... well, not forever, but I read them last year when no one gave a hoot about them ) I decided to read the trilogy over again on Friday night.

I don't know if it's the hormones, or what... but, the books are even better than last time.  And, I find myself wanting to jump into the books and squeeze Katniss's fellow tribute from District 12, Peeta.  Maybe it's because I know how the stories ends, or that he's basically written as the perfect person, but I feel weird that I'm in love with a 17 year old, non-existent character from a novel.

At first I was a little turned off that the cute little boy from Bridge to Terabithia was playing my beloved Peeta...  But, since I've seen pictures like this:
*this is the actress that will be playing Glimmer in the movie!
and this:
He does not look 17.
Or this:
you are waaaaay to young for me.
Yes, Josh... You can be my Peeta.
No!  Not that kind of Pita!  But, that does look delicious!

Also, I read somewhere in an E! interview with Suzanne Collins(the author) and she discussed casting Josh as Peeta,
“People may get thrown off by, say, the color of an actor’s hair,” explained Collins of her casting choices. “But I tell you, if Josh had been bright purple and had six-foot wings and gave that audition, I’d have been like, ‘Cast him! We can work around the wings.’ He was that good.”
And, being that there is zero to no sexiness in the Hunger Games, unless you think brutally killing children is sexy in any way, it won't really matter that I now find Josh Hutcherson to be pretty attractive.  I just now trust that Peeta Mellark is being played by someone the author trusts and that is awesome.

By the way, I lub you Peeta.

*disclaimer: This is purely satire.  In no way am I going to jump into my book and hook up with a fictional character.  Also, Josh Hutcherson is 17... and that's kind of creepy.  This is mostly written to make myself, and you, giggle and my sillyness*


  1. Of course you had to put the picture of him laying down, DIDN'T YOU? And I must say, he cleans up nicely.

    He looks way different than what I imagined him to be from the books, but I'll take him. Hopefully him and the gal who plays Katniss have actual chemistry with each other instead of them having to force it.

  2. I keep on thinking of how they said peter's name on family guy. Peee--Ta

  3. "I feel weird that I'm in love with a 17 year old, non-existent character from a novel."


  4. B- not what I pictured originally as well.. But, now, as you can tell- I fully support it! As for Jennifer Lawerence as Katniss.. She will nail it. She is a spectacular actress. I bet the chemistry will be great. I just hope they haven't fucked up the script.

    Gia- Hahahahahha *cheeks hurt*

    Sarah- I'm glad you find me entertaining!

    Josh is actually 19 years old. So it's totally legal to crush on him. LOL

  7. Hey ya'll- I know Josh is 19 (or is he 20 now?) but PEETA is 17!
