Twighlight The Movie

So where to begin...

I liked it.

I don't think I loved it. Not yet. But I might...

It was a lot slower moving than I thought it would be. Plus the whole time I was worried about what my husband was thinking of the movie. He didn't read the books. And he wasn't impressed. He said he would watch it again but not pay full price at the theater.

Some of the makeup was a bit overdone but really didn't bug me.

Maybe I would have loved it if I was able to just watch it without all of the knowing giggles and claps going on in the theater. I expected it to be packed and there to be a lot of teenagers but still that was getting on my nerves.

I think most of the characters were cast perfectly. I think Bella looks right but I am not sure about her as an actress. The one that really was wrong is Rosalie. And I feel bad for her in real life because she is going to get a lot of criticism for not being pretty enough.

So I have mixed feelings.

I think I will love it when I can really watch it again. Is the DVD out yet???

I do love that the next one has been given the green light, though!!

Wednesday, November 5


Yesterday I did my civic duty and voted.

But more importantly Belle has been very involved in this election.

They talked about it in school.

She would ask me who I was voting for and I refused to tell her.

She knew who she wanted to win. McCain.

And she had her reasons why: She did not like how Obama talked to McCain and she did not like what he said. She thought he was mean.

So funny...

Anyway, we have electronic voting booths in my precinct and I took Belle with me. Given how involved she has been I wanted her to be a part of the actual process.

Fast forward to this morning and I tell her who wins.

She starts crying. She was so upset that her choice did not win.

I felt so bad for her. Even though I also thought it was a bit funny. I know shame on me but she was so upset I couldn't believe it. She is 6 and is on her way to a future in politics if she keeps this up.
