All dressed up and nowhere to go

I struggled out of bed this morning, which was substantially harder than normal, since I attended at 10.30 showing of Twilight last night. As many of you know, 10.30 is right around the time I shut down, rendered completely useless until the next morning. I had been out late on Friday night as well (I'm such a socialite!) so by 8.30 last night, I thought there was no way I'd be able to stay awake during the movie. But OH! was I wrong.

The group of five I went with had quite varied reactions. Amy, who hadn't read the books but enjoyed the movie (but was very glad she didn't have Enoch next to her while watching it, since it was quite over the top). Erin, who read 1 of the books (I think... she might have read 2) and thought the books AND the movie were equally cheesy. Eryka, who liked the books all right and hated the movie the first time, but really liked it the 2nd time (yes, we forced her to go with us even though she'd seen it on Thursday night), Ashley, who loved the books and loved the movie, and me, who thought the books were horrible and painful to read (except #4) but loved the movie. I mean, how could you NOT enjoy staring at Robert Pattinson (don't worry... I had to google his name to figure out who he is. I'm not that into him!) for 2 hours? He is, as I said about 20 x last night, The Hotness. I thought they did a great job of having him smolder on screen... and the movie was totally clean, which was delightful. I can't wait for Scout to be old enough to watch it with me. Leave a comment about what you thought... I know you've already seen it.

Travis let me sleep in today, and when I woke up he had also cleaned up the whole downstairs, which had been a wreck the night before. Lovely! So we had a nice, peaceful Sunday morning and I got all dressed for church (I have quite a cute outfit on, if I do say so myself.) and Oz promptly fell apart at 11.02 (church starts at 11.30). 2  weeks ago we let him fall asleep in the car on the way to church and paid dearly for the rest of the day, so I put him down for a nap and am now finally finding some time to reconnect with my old friend, the MacBook:
I took in the computer on Tuesday, because Trav's power cord wasn't working so I thought I might as well have them replace the keyboard on mine, since it had been chipping off along the bottom. I thought they were just going to quickly replace it, and wish I had a photo of my face when the genius bar guy told me they'd have to keep it for "7-10 days". I was completely stunned and felt as if he had asked me to leave one of my children at the store for that amount of time. I grudgingly left it, and was so VERY thankful to finally get it back on Friday evening. Obviously, though, it made for quite a slow week of blogging. So since I've found myself with an unexpected free 2 hours (I'm hoping he'll wake up early enough that I can still get to Relief Society) I might as well try and play catch up on my thankful posts. Is it wrong to be thankful for Robert Pattinson? Just kidding. Kind of.

I can't wait to see it! I liked all the books. I read 3 of them when your dad was so very ill. They were nice light reads that distracted me from my worries about Dad.

P.S. Glad to see you know how to spell "hot" as in hotness. (although I'm not sure hotness is a word?) Everyone else in New York evidently doesn't know how to spell hot, and instead they spell it Hawt. (Telling Ashley what you like about her on her birthday.)

As a former school teacher, mother of 4, grandmother to 8, and Primary teacher, it makes me crazy when people purposely spell words incorrectly. It REALLY confuses children.

good point mom. we wouldn't want to confuse all the children who read this blog.

No worries on being thankful for Patterson b/c I am thankful for and have a recent and very intense obsession for Chris Martin - frontrunner for Coldplay. I have loved this band for several years now but Friday I saw them in concert and now I am off my rocker. I've spent all morning reading on the internet anything I can find/view regarding this man who seems so cool. He is quiet and funny and obstains/disdains alcohol and drugs. His band and music are brilliant. In every song he sang, played the piano, and the guitar. Anyone who can ever see them in concert is a lucky and better person for it.

I wonder if they need an accountant???

I didn't think I loved the movie, but I'm dying to see it again...asap. so, i must have liked it.

I went to see the movie with girlfriends also, and it was just fun being out with the girls. I only read book 1, and couldn't put it down, but also didn't love it. I loved the movie, though! Yes, totally cheesy, but that's what I liked. I laughed so much. It was great, and I would definitely see it again!

angela, you are officially invited for screening #2 with ashley and i. we discussed it on sunday and decided we must see it again, in theaters, pretty soon. but ashley declared that no one who didn't like it could come because she "didn't want their negativity." we can't have anyone bringing us down.
