Weekend Recap

So we finally made it out to see Twilight this weekend. My review:
From left to right (for those who haven't read the book or seen the movie)
Emmet - very cute
Rosalie - beautiful
Esme - perfect
Edward - could have been cuter
Carlisle - perfect and cute
Alice - good choice, love the hair
Jasper - cute, though he looked painfully constipated throughout the movie

Bella - hmm...not really sure, sometimes I just wanted to give her a swift kick in the butt and tell her to smile, she's way more serious in the movie than I pictured her to be while reading
Jacob - way cute, bad wig (as my husband noticed), but cute

And that's about all I have to say. I was neither impressed nor disappointed.
We visited my brother-in-law and his family Saturday evening. We got some more Christmas gifts taken care of on Sunday. That was about it for the weekend.
I took off for work this morning about 10 minutes late. It was raining (though it was below freezing, that still gets me) which made for a wonderful drive. I got about 3 blocks from the apartment and realized that I had a flat tire. Wonderful! Called David, he brought me his car and took mine to get the tire fixed. Got to school and the parking lot was full due to a 5th grade band concert. Raced another car (as well as I could on the ice/snow covered parking lot) to the only available parking spot, and won. The school day went pretty well except some sort of stomach bug is going around so I'm hoping I miss out on that one. Left work at 4, went out to the car only to have to pry the car door because it was frozen shut; the whole car was an ice cube. Turned on the defrost and looked around for a scraper and couldn't find one. Called David and asked him if there was a scraper in his car, to which he said no. Told him I'd be home in an hour because the windows were completely frozen and snowed over. He told me he'd bring a scraper. About 15 minutes later he showed up, scraped the windows, and traded cars. So he saved me twice today. I'm really tired of winter already. Ok, so it's kind of fun to sit here and watch the snow fall but I hate it when I'm out in it.

I feel kind of like you about the movie. I loved Alice....I thought Jasper was odd...I definitely thought Bella needed acting lessons.

Your husband is so considerate!

I wish we had snow. We are actually expecting severe thunderstorms tonight. Weird for December!

I agree with your thoughts on the characters except I did not like Jasper at all. i think I had seen him in something else and not liked him but he just seemed not right for the part to me. I loved the movie though!

I'm sorry to hear about your flat tire and your frozen car. I'm glad you have such a sweet and considerate husband!

I loved it. I can't wait for the next movie :D

Jodi said...

I was hoping to hear how your husband like the movie! :) Sorry you had a few mishaps the other day. But maybe you just got them all out of the way and you'll have a perfect rest of the winter! :)

Ha! Great way of describing Jasper's look in the movie. I know it was because he was trying to control his "thirst" but it kind of creeped us out! Though I did really enjoy the movie. Looking forward to the rest. I'm just beginning to read Eclipse right now.

And what an awesome hubby you have, saving you twice in the snow!

Emmett is my favorite. Alice was definately perfect. Hopefully we'll see more out of Jasper in the next one -- I can tell he has potential.

I miss snow. I really do. But it's just not possible here..

Tabitha Blue said...

I agree... I was neither impressed nor disappointed. I never expect movies to be as good as the book, so that may have helped. I thought Emmet was perfect and Jacob was cute. I think all the girls needed a little help though, I pictured Rosalie prettier. :)

Good overview though!!!

That movie is a bit dull..If someone will try to critisize me, i will tell him: That's my opinion, ok? Is it clear?

I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own blog and was curious what all is needed to get setup? I'm
assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
I'm not very web savvy so I'm not 100% certain. Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated. Kudos

solved soon. Cheers

Awesome blog! Do you have any hints for aspiring writers? I'm planning to start my own site soon but I'm a little lost on everything.
Would you advise starting with a free platform like Wordpress or go for a paid option?

There are so many choices out there that I'm totally confused .. Any tips? Appreciate it!
