The Hunger Games and more

Did you go see The Hunger Games this weekend? I’ll admit it, I can’t remember the last movie I saw in the theater, but I took the “Mooooom, can you Fandango tickets for us and drive us to the theater??” begging as my chance to sneak in and see it, all in the name of chaperoning, of course. It was rather awesome.

If your kid (or you; I don’t judge) is now jonesing for Hunger Games-themed apparel and other items, you should definitely check out the options over at CafePress; they have an entire Hunger Games store filled with items to delight even the most die-hard fans. Better still, right now you can use coupon code AFF30 for 30% off your purchase, effectively making overpriced licensed merchandise a bit easier to overpay for. Heh.

(Though I have to say, all of the “I heart Peeta” and other Twilight-esque attempts to turn it into “which boy do you like” don’t really do it for me. I’m liking the various “May the odds be ever in your favor” options.)


  1. I like the ones that proclaim “Team Katniss” – I love that she (mostly) carried herself as fiercely independent.

  2. I, too, had to chaperone Sat. night. I had not read the books, but i enjoyed the movie. I also got a free download of one of the songs from the movie on itunes free from Fandango. Nice song.

  3. The books have been on my “to read” list since you talked about them way back when. Now, alas and alack, everyone is checking them out of the library and reading them because of the movie. I may actually have to spend money and PURCHASE them somewhere!

  4. Am I the only one who was highly amused by the use of the word Fandango as a verb in that request? maybe because its close enough to the word ‘finagle’ (too lazy to look up the right spelling)…

  5. Just tried to use the code & was dissed, used their web site’s code & was also dissed. I’m trying to buy a pin, which seems to be sold via the “official” HG site? Since I have a rabid fan I’m buying for, I will probably buy it anyway but my bargainholic sensibilities are offended…; )
