As with anything, I always recommend beginning at the beginning. However, in case you don't want to peruse my entries from the beginning (& hey, it's your loss), here's a quickie for you.

I basically like Twilight. I appreciate it for what it is, and recognize it's shortcomings. If you're a crazed Twi-fanatic, consider yourself warned.

Kristen Stewart is on my shortlist of favorite actors, and Robert Pattinson is not only gorgeous, he's talented too.

The cast in general blows my mind. Not for their acting skills (which are super sweet), but the fact that they are all so normal seeming. And they get along. No cat fights, no set drama. I'd love to see a remake of The Breakfast club with this cast, where they act as themselves. someone make that happen k thanks.

Stephenie Meyer, as a stay-at-home mom of multiple kids, wrote a book. She's kinda my hero. I want to do what she's done.

All opinions and thoughts are welcome here, so please feel free to speak your mind. :)

PS-I tend to go off on tangents like no one's business, and occasionally stray from what I really wanted to say. I'm also too impatient to go back and re-read what I've written to make sure it sounds right. I apologize for any ramblings, incoherence, and other minor transgressions I might make.

Twilight-The Movie

I went and saw Twilight on a Tuesday night, at 10:oo, by myself, something I've never done before. There were maybe seven other people in the theater, and they all sat behind me, so it was like being alone in the theater with the movie.

I knew as soon as I walked out of the movie that I would see it again in the theater, something I haven't done since the Matrix was in theaters.

I wore my heavy winter coat to the show, and tucked my ticket stub in the pocket.

I cannot take it out of my pocket.

I put my coat on a few times a day to go outside, and each time I slip my hand into my pocket, I feel the ticket there. A really good feeling fills me up inside and I can't not smile because of it.

I think that's a good indication of how I felt about the movie, and a good place to leave this blog for now; feeling that good feeling, like anything is possible, and trying to hold back the little smile that always comes with it.


So This Is Goodbye (for now)

I've come to realize I just don't have enough time, or creative energy for that matter, to keep up with all the writings I want to do. One day perhaps, but right now my kids take up all my time, and my writing priority lies with my attempt at a novel, and the blog I vent into about said novel.

There are so many things I want to dissect about Twilight, the actors, the fanaticism that follows both, and Stephenie's influence. But I can't commit to all of it right now, so I'm going to leave it alone for a while.

I'm coming back to finish, and I am putting one other entry in, after this, because I think it sums up my feeling about the movie pretty well, and I'm thinking it will be quickly written.

So goodbye for now, but not forever.
