Ok…. two cups of COFFEE in to my morning… I have a confession.
*just rip the band-aid off…*
I almost went to the triple movie showing last night of all three of the Twilight movies.
I know – I know! If you know me you know I love adventures and love to be a part of unique things – I mean seriously, I waited 6 hours with my 18-year-old son a couple of years back for a Wii that was going to be released at midnight in Wal-Mart. I stood in line among Quiddich clad youth to go to a midnight showing of the last Harry Potter movie with Chance….. I mean,
this is what I do.
And, for a moment, ok – more like for an hour and a half, I seriously thought my friend Wendy and I were going to do the triple movie experience. It started at 7:00 pm with Twilight, followed at 9:25 pm by New Moon, and at 12:05 am Eclipse.
Then I thought about it and knew I could not do 7+ hours in the movie theater…. plus, I have a 9:30 am meeting this morning that not looking like I have been up half the night wearing a Team Edward shirt and ju ju bees stuck to the side of face (and probably in my hair) would be a plus.
However. Today. This afternoon…. Wendy and I will be going to the afternoon showing of Eclipse. I have seen the other two movies and thought they were good, I read all the books back when they were first released, and yes, I am continuing my Twilight adventure with my head held high (hopefully ju ju bee free) to the completion of the movies.
Last night, I read the short second life of bree tanner, in part, because Bree shows up in the book Eclipse. I hope to have that review up this afternoon. My only hint…. it wasn’t like the other books.
For giggles – here are my original reviews of the books – note: I wrote these pre blog. This means, I didn’t really format them for other readers, they are mainly my on-line journal – and probably a bit raw and totally unplugged:
Twilight (I have my Sally Field moment here… I like it, I really like it)
New Moon (I fight the critics here that say this book is awful…)
Eclipse (in this one I gush a little too much about Edward and threaten to bite someone…)
breaking dawn (I rave about…. the title. And something about locking the characters in a box with Harry Potter….)
