Cato! Cato! Cato! Who?!

This is a random post about CATO! Who? remember that guy who killed Thresh in the 74th Hunger Games? Yeah, THAT'S the guy. Anyway, I received this helpful link from a friend on FB. THANKS JACKSON!!! :D 
Ok, this is how Google defines 'Cato'. Warning: It is really random but hilarious! :) Enjoy!
Definitions of Cato on the Web:
  • Cato is a town in Cayuga County, New York, USA. The population was 2,744 at the 2000 census. The name was assigned by the surveyors of the Military Tract, and is one of many towns and villages bearing classical place names.
  • Assisted take off is any system for helping aircraft into the air (as opposed to strictly under its own power). ...
  • Joseph Addison (1 May 1672 – 17 June 1719) was an English essayist, poet and politician. He was a man of letters, eldest son of Lancelot Addison ...
  • The Cato was a ship of 430 tons constructed at Stockton in England and registered in London to Reeve & Green. ...
  • The Cato Institute is a pro-free market, libertarian think tank headquartered in Washington, D.C.
  • A male given name, rare in English; A surname. A French matronymic derived from Catherine
  • Catastrophic at takeoff; Cadet Administrative and Training Order; Catapult Assisted Take-Off
  • (Burt Kwouk) Burt Kwouk (Chinese: éƒå¼¼; pinyin: GuÅ Bì) (born July 18, 1930) is an actor who was born in Manchester, England... 
Wasn't that RANDOM? Ahaha! I know right? What in the world?! But good to know! Umm, except that last part about Burt Kwouk? Who is THAT? And what did he have to do with Cato? I don't know! I missed the connection...How about you? ;)
Well, what did you think? Tell me in the comments! Thanks again Jackson! ;D

Hunger Games Names

Hello Everyone!
Sorry about this post it was SO MUCH BETTER with books references and everything but this darn computer wouldn't save it! >:\ 
But hey I did find some fanput (LOL! new word that i JUST made up! use it!;D) on Hunger Games names:
  i was thinking of the names and stuff. Do you know what thresh means? It means to shake out the grains of a plant.(not exactly "shake".) Agriculture, dist. 11! And gale? that's a kind of wind, and Gale has stormy grey eyes? I read this off a fan fic-> Peeta=Pita a type of bread,(duh.) Katniss, some wild potato plant<, and rue and primrose some types of flowers!!!! interesting, isn't it??(yupp.) i dont know about cato, but yeah!
Hmm...(My comments were in parentheses in case u couldn't! ;D) And more fanput(ahaha!):

Glimmer- like a  sparkle on a stone, you know, because district 1 makes things for the Capitol(true.)
Cato- was Roman politician and general who wrote the first history of Rome. As censor he attempted to restore simplicity to Roman life.(what does that have to do with Cato? u lost me...)
Clove- could be a flower, or a type of bulb, as in garlic clove, but my personal theory is that her name is clove, as in, to cleave.(i like this one! she cut Katniss' face remember?)
Foxface- she is a type of fish. I don't get this, because district 3 is fishing, not five. I think Kat means that she's sly as a fox, and looks like one, too.(that's what she said!)
Thresh-to separate the grain or seeds from a cereal plant (cereal? what country are you from again?) or the like by some mechanical means, (correct.) as by beating with a flail or by the action of a threshing machine. (agriculture, this is so cool)
Rue- is a small yellow or white flower
Katniss- is actually a plant, but i don't think it grows in america
Prim- primrose is a flower that comes in a variety of colors. Generally, it's pretty small, too
Cinna- like cinnamon? Or cinema?(whoa! not THAT'S stretching it! :D)
Everdeen- sounds suspicously like evergreen(yes it does...)
Gale- a wind, kinda matches him huh? Quick, and easy to make mad. (i don't know about THAT.)
hawthorne- a tree 
Do YOU have any ideas about HG names? Send them to me! :D I would LUV to hear what you think!

May the odds EVER be in your favor!

OMG! the wicked horridness IS true! :O
Ok, not saying that I hacked, but I have a friend who specializes in 'finding out the truth' in a unpolitical way: hacking. Remember, you didn't hear that from me.

As a fellow HG crazed fan when I mentioned the chance of the later release date of Mockingjay, he went crazy.After 'discovering' some information I am saddened to say that yes, it IS true.
The Mockingjay release date HAS been postponed! :'(
Scholastic is trying to keep it hushed for now. I don't know why. Trying to make it even MORE heartbreaking when  they announce it later?! UGH! I think I'm going to write them a strongly worded letter about this....Oh wait, I can't cauz no ones supposed to know!
I'll begin working on it now so I'll be ready for the announcement.
It seems that something is wrong with Mockingjay. Suzanne hit a wall maybe? IDK. *groan*I can't wait! >:\
Well, I'll keep you updated! :D
Btw, Happy Saint Patty's Day! (ugh, i wish this WAS a joke!)

May the odds EVER be in your favor!

P.S. I'm going to investigate further WHY scholastic is trying to keep this hushed! I wanna know why! >:|
