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.
