they go so fast...[and a short twilight review]

the weekend is over. i saw twilight. i loved twilight. i saw twilight again. i'm still obsessed with twilight.

i am, however, trying to pace myself, in that i finished the 2nd book and don't have the 3rd or 4th yet. i don't want to be any more engrossed in this book craze than i already am. the first showing of twilight i saw on Friday with my cousin and her/our friend from church. i definitely geeked out several times and shed some tears. i adored it. sissy and i saw it again today. it was still awesome, but i think the awareness of some of the missing parts came out more with that second showing. even though we were still way too excited for it to start, listening to the soundtrack and watching Paramore song videos all through shared headphones on my iPhone while we waited 45 minutes early in the theater, some of the novelty definitely wore off the 2nd time around. its always fun to analyze a movie after the 2nd viewing, noting all the things you missed in the first, or understood different ways in the 2nd. all in all, i think i've got my fill of the movie for a while.

i'm NOT ready to go back to work tomorrow.

i received a WONDERFUL surprise Saturday night from the bf. a dozen beautiful red, orange and yellow roses and some chocolates [he knows my weaknesses too well]. he is the absolute best.

i'm very much looking forward to this three day [maybe two and a half day] week. i'm excited for the holiday...

I'm going to be blunt. I didn't hate the movie. I thought it was . . . okay. But I found it slightly cheesy and very unoriginal. As as a screen couple, Bella and Edward are boring as hell.

If you want a good teen vampire love story, stick with the first three seasons of BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYERS. You can find the DVDs in your local stores.
