1. Three Things Thursday was pushed back a day this week, because of Nancy Drew #31. Also, I couldn't think of a third thing to talk about.
2. My local library has 24 of the Nancy Drew books for eight-year-olds. I know the book reviews for that series aren't so popular, but they are super easy to write, because the books are so simplistic. I might do more in the future. Speaking of which, reviews for the 2004 Girl Detective series were easy to get through, so I'll be doing six of them, not just four.
3. I've seen a few shows, like Hey Arnold!, where they try to drum up some romance by having the main cast enact the play Romeo and Juliet. Drama ensues, when the male lead and the female lead learn that they must kiss each other during the play.
I can't help but wonder if these shows are written by people who have not actually seen the Shakespeare play in question. It is not a romantic kissing scene; it is a death scene where Romeo and Juliet commit suicide. Juliet kisses Romeo, in hopes that there is poison left on his lips. It's not romantic in the slightest.
Of course, there's a different scene in the play where Romeo and Juliet kiss, but all of the TV shows I've seen skip over that part. Bah!
