Evening Out

Last night was my evening out with Cindy. Twilight.... The scenery was breathtakingly stunning. The characters were good. The jawline on the love scenes with Edward... Oh My Goodness.... Stopping the van with his bare hands....yummy. ♥♥♥♥

I am glad I didn't re-read the book right before the movie. That helped to not interfere with the movie in my head. Now I have both. I think it's necessary to read the book before seeing the movie so that you don't miss anything. Trying to squeeze a 498 page book into 2 hours is almost impossible but they did a pretty good job.

I was a little disappointed with the excess of white makeup and lipstick at the beginning of the movie, but that seemed to either get better in the movie or maybe I tuned some of it out and got used to it. Not sure which.

It would have really helped if the really loud lady, 2 rows behind us, could have toned down some of her laughing. She was REALLY loud and obnxious which made it hard to concentrate.

One reason I loved the book is that I love the tall, strong, silent and unbelievably controlled type. Edward delivers.... Sorry Kristina....;-) ...I'll be waiting on the snarky comments. ♥

Lauri did a much better review.

Very nice to have a brief escape from a radical world. Time with Cindy... Priceless! ♥ Best present ever!

Can you tell I learned a new trick.... Thanks to Trying To Be Calm....

P.S. J did excellent at Papa's & Monya's. She had a great time and it was one more instance of her knowing that I did indeed come back for her.

Hey, people can love it all they want. I still can't get into Edward.

I will be seeing the movie next weekend. I'm sure the snarky comments will multiply.

I'm glad you took some time for yourself! Sooooo important.

Glad you had the chance to get out and enjoy the movie and glad to hear J did well while you were gone.

I am waiting until the crowds die down here! I can't beleive how cazy teenager-ish grown woman are acting about it all. Don't get me wrong I love the books. I am excited to see the movie. But I will wait until I do not have a buch of giggly women in every single seat!
I have heard mixed reviews. I like yours. I hope it doesn't disapoint.

Thanks for the heads up I will keep it in mind. Also, like you, I will not re-read Twilight until after I have seen the movie. If I will at all. I tend to neglect everything when I read.
