We're watching Divergent right now, which I must admit I like even less than I liked Twilight.

I dragged everyone to Charming Charlie because I'd seen an ad that their holiday items were 50-75% off and I really wanted the snowflake bracelet -- got the last one! Here we are looking at the holiday displays:
