Randomosity on Fridays: Friday 5

May is coming to a close and summer is on its way here! I'm chipper this Friday because Thursday was strangely awesome, even though I am also extremely jealz of all the people currently chatting it up at BEA in New York. One day!

Here's my Friday 5.

1) On the other hand, though I may not be at BEA this year, it turns out I will be going to Comic Con after all! Yay for scoring badges during the resale! That was Thursday Awesome Thing #1!

2) Thursday Awesome Thing #2: While I was pining over the fact that people were getting Maggie Stiefvater's The Dream Thieves ARCs at BEA and commiserating (and also offering bribes) with Mindee Arnett, the very lovely Sarah Goldberg offered to share the ARC that will be coming to her. Obviously, I jumped on that offer ASAP and pledged my undying love.

3) News came in that NBC renewed the TV show HANNIBAL for a 2nd season. I'm so excited because this is such a stylishly shot show. It is tense, creepy, and also truly disturbing. I love the psychology and the moodiness, the horrific imagery. SUCH a good show (even if it makes me question my love of food). Recommended! (Also, I love Hugh Dancy.)

4) The Sister and I marathoned the new Netflix season of Arrested Development with our friend Justine. She also hosted an amazing viewing party: lasagna cupcakes, guacamole and chips, juice boxes, candy beans, and the all important chocolate-covered frozen bananas.

Definitely deserving of the title Mister Manager!

She even made us gift bags!
The Sister went to the party as Buster.
The new episodes were definitely different - even wackier than the original and the formatting has changed - but we still enjoyed it.  Just took a bit of getting used to, and we loved how the different storylines intersected. We want more! (Also the song "Getaway")

5) The Sister and I also got to see Imagine Dragons last night at the Hollywood Palladium. Needless to say, it was awesome.

Shot by the Sister from the balcony, where we watched most of the show.

Sister did a short vine video of Radioactive.

Q4U: What are your Friday Fives? Are any of you going to Comic Con this year??

Oh man, I'm so jealous of everyone going to BEA as well. I was planning to go, but circumstances were not in my favor this year :( Maybe next year a bunch of us blog buddies can plan something and meet up there. I bet that concert was fantastic!!

I'm so envious of your Imagine Dragons concert! I love them so much. Glad you guys had fun. :-)

I so wish I could go to BEA, or Comic Con for that matter. How fun!

Happy Friday!

You have had an amazing few days! I'm so envious that you'll get to read DREAM THIEVES early... I need to find someone willing to share an ARC! :-)

I'm not even thinking of how amazing it would be to go to BEA. Or Comic Con. But I can't wait to see your photos of it.

That radioactive song makes me think of violent stuffed animals. I wonder why.
