I loved Twilight! I'm so glad I was able to go with my posse. We giggled all the way there and back. I feel they nailed the book, all the teen angst was there, the beautiful scenery of Washington,(I was freesing just watching the rain and the cold) the beautiful Vampires and my precious Jacob.
For those on the fence - The guy who plays Edward, can't think of his name, but I'll always think of him as Cedric Diggory from Harry Potter- He has grown up now and I really don't think he looks like Cedric (may he rest in peace) so it was easy to beleive he was indeed a vampire and not a wizard. Bella was awesome, the only complaint was they made her look to well put together, in the book she didn't care so much about her looks. And Jacob, his character isn't developed much in this book, he's more in the other three, well he was awesome and beautiful in a way totally different than the vamps. LOVED HIM!!! A lot of people were saying they couldn't buy Shark Boy as Jacob, but again he's all grown up. My friends and I discussed this and we also overheard EVERYONE in the theater saying it, Rosalie wasn't as beautiful as she was described in the book. My favorite vampire character is Alice and they didn't have a lot of time to develop the intense friendship she shares with Bella. I'm hoping they make all of the books into movies and Alice will get more screentime. Dr. Cullen, came across as kind of creepy looking, it looked like he was wearing a bunch of powder, like some old english dude from Queen Victoria's Court. Normally the actor that portrayed him is good looking in his own right (jennie garth's husband) but in the movie he wasn't so ooh la la.
I realize to anyone (whoever you are) who hasn't read the books, this makes no sense.

Oh and I made breakfast this morning and packed lunches. Breakfast was Eggo waffles, but that still counts as a hot breakfast- Go Kareena!

Do you have your tickets?

I do!!!! Me, and 700 of my closest friends, will be hitting the Movie Tavern tonight at midnight to see the SOLD OUT first showing of Twilight. MY life will never be the same. Robert is a little wierded out that his 38 year old wife will be acting like a teeny bopper tonight. My prediction is that it will be mostly middle aged moms like myself tonight and less teenagers, after all they have school tomorrow, all I'll have to do it throw the kids on the bus and go back to bed.... They can eat breakfast at school, just this once...

Dreaming of Jacob and Edward as I type....
