I Am Such a Grown-UP!!

Twilight opened in theaters last Friday. I really wanted to see it at midnight Thursday, but I work at 6am on Fridays so I am able to pick Em up from school at 3. I really wanted to see it Friday night, but Matt was on call that night and both kids were home with me. Saturday? Can't, kids are home and Matt is not. Sunday? Nope. So I went ahead and took today off as a vacation day. My friend Denise and I met for lunch and hit the 1:45 show. And because she didn't get any late slips last week and she's off of school this week, Emerson got to go too. How is that for delayed gratification??? Aren't you proud of what an adult I am?

I truly enjoyed the movie. I treated it like the Harry Potter books and movies. You have to judge them separately. Let them stand on their own. I have never seen a movie that was ever as good as the book it was based. Sometime my overactive imagination is a blessing and a curse. It's not fair to judge something based on what I thought it should have looked like, I'm not the author!

I was not disappointed as some of the other reader have been. I really liked it and if I can have an evening with Matt alone, I'll probably see it again. He probably feels like he read it too because of how much I talked about the books.

He hasn't been real keen on role playing Edward and Bella with me, he's been tired, but I'm wearing him down.

Oh yeah. I am so happy you liked it. I just can't wait for the DVD and for the next movie. Oh my. I hope it doesn't take too long. I have started reading New Moon again. Danielle and I have been listening to the soundtrack non stop. I just saw today that the score soundtrack is going to available in December. I must have that too. I have not been crazy about a movie like this since Lord of the Rings. You will love it even more the second time.

Is the kiss just the hottest thing you have ever seen.

Glad you got to see the movie. :)

That's the best way to do it... It's next to impossible to duplicate the book exactly on screen. Even the authors have to agree to fiddle with some things to make them work for a movie. So if you go in and start comparing it to the book then you're going to spend the whole movie picking faults in said movie rather than enjoying it.

I'm glad you liked the movie. One of these days, I might go see it. Or read the book. Or both.

Happy Thanksgiving. Hope you all have a wonderful day. I will be at Heathers today.

Matt's story if a good one. OMG I am dying. That was great.
