**First of all, I need to wish celtic_fish a HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY. I hope you had a great day :)

**Can you believe it's only January & I've already bought a Christmas present for my brother? I had to stop before work at the tractor supply/farm store (my least-favorite place) to buy dog food and saw something I knew my brother would love. (He thinks he's a farmer, even though we've always lived in town. Delusions run in the family.) Now I just have to make sure I don't lose/forget about it in the next 11 months...

**To the Criminal Minds fans on my flist: can y'all answer some questions for me? My mother decided to talk ALL THE WAY throught the show, so I missed a lot of the details of the story. My questions are under .
1. Why didn't the man kill the first little girl they kidnapped? I know the wife told him to do it himself, but then they threw her out alive. Did she do anything further to convince him to spare Kate? (Didn't Prentiss say something to Kathy later about saving Kate's life?)

2. Did they steal the girls & indoctrinate them before marrying them to their sons, or did they marry them right away?

3. What was the reason for the broken glass...?

4. Did Kathy get caught shoplifting on purpose so that her son & husband could get away? Was it her decision, or did the creepy husband decide to sacrifice her?

5. This probably wasn't discussed, but what if one of these unions produced a daughter? Would they target a family with a young boy?

6. WHY did they kill the parents in their sleep, when they obviously could've kidnapped the girls without disturbing the parents?

If I think of anymore, I'll let you know. Thanks for any & all help! :)

Slightly off-topic (and some totally shallow) observations of the show:
~I want to be as awesome as Garcia when I grow up.
~YAY! JJ's finally coming back!!!! *throws confetti*
~NOT.ENOUGH.REID. The hell, show???
~I liked Reid's hair when they ~did~ show him. And his dorktastic outfit. And the way he wears his gun.
~Morgan was looking especially fiiiiine last night.
~I sort of love Emily, after hating her for soooooo long.

*Totally random, but it goes along with the Gypsies theme of CM last night. When I was young, I remember my grandmother being terrified of Gypsies. Whenever we'd go shopping in Fort Wayne, she'd repeat over & over to lock all the car doors and keep an eye on us kids at all times so the Gypsies couldn't steal us. And honestly, at 7 or 8, I didn't even know what a Gypsy was. Once, my younger brother wandered off at a fabric store and my grandma FREAKED THE HELL OUT and was yelling "THE GYPSIES GOT HIM! THE GYPSIES GOT HIM!" The little bugger was just hiding among the bolts of fabric. My mom says she remembered seeing the stereotypical-looking Gypsies (like the kind you see in old movies/cartoons) in the early 60s in Fort Wayne (long multi-colored skirts, lots of bangle bracelets, kerchiefs tied on their heads, etc.), but that they were more into trying to read your palm in the K-Mart parking lot than scoping out children as grandma claimed. (And yes, I realize that my grandmother was not a very tolerant or enlightened person, bless-her-soul.)

*Ugh, I have my performance review with my supervisor today. Is it wrong to wish for a ~mild catastrophe~ to happen before 1:30? I don't want anyone to get hurt, just bad enough that it closes down the building?

1. I think it was just because the wife didn't want him to that he didn't kill her.

2. They didn't really say.

3. I believe it's for good luck?

4. Yes, she got caught on purpose. Whether she did it of her own free will or because her husband wanted her to was unstated, but I assumed she did it of her own free will.

5. I WAS WONDERING THIS TOO. Presumably they marry her off into one of the other crazy families?

6. So the kid would have no one to go back to? As part of the ritual of integrating her into their society? I'm not actually sure.

I'm glad JJ's coming back, I miss her.

Garcia is made up of so much awesome!

Good luck with your review!

The broken glass was for ritualistic reasons.

Someone said they killed the parents to decrease the chance of anyone looking for the girls.

I would also like to be Garcia, IF I grow up. Haha.

The team was not the same without JJ. And I'm glad that Jordan told Hotch not to tak her for granted.

I agree that there was not enough Reid and that he was particularly adorable in his geeky way.

If I can't be Garcia, I would not mind being Prentiss.
