Coming up to breathe....

Hello all! I'm still at my parents house and enjoying some days off.

My mom is incredible, she's in high spirits and insisted on having Thanksgiving at our house. With the help of some wonderful relatives, Thanksgiving went off without a hitch.

This morning at 2:30am the Mr. left my parents house to drive to STL to head back to Texas. I miss him already. It was great to get to see him for a couple days, but its never enough.

And we finally saw Twilight on Friday afternoon. As you may know we both read the books and waited to see it together. It was OK. Cedric Diggory (Rob Patterson) won me over. I'm convinced he can be Edward. But the actress that plays Bella annoys the crap out of me. Also, the actor that plays Jacob, while very cute I'm not won over. Also, I didn't like the actors that played his friends. These "boys" are supposed to turn into werewolves. I'm not convinced.

I also had problems with a lot of the actors selected for the movie. A couple of other things, I understand you made this movie on the cheap. But seriously, you're going to gross a ridiculous amount of money so please, please, please, make the special effects better. Edward sweating glitter was horrible. The transformations into the werewolves better not look stupid.

Glad to hear your mom is doing well on the mend! Enjoy every minute at home.

and I agree if your going to remake a movie, go all out, and make it GREAT. Not just good.

I didn't really like any of the actors who played the Cullens. I thought the girl who played Alice was pretty right on but why did they have to make Peter Faccinelli's (sp?) hair like bleach blonde??
