~sigh~ :)

 

 

I have just gotten back from watching the movie "Twilight".  I unlike most everyone else in the world have not read the books.  I know, I know its shocking.  How could I go watch the movie without reading the books.  Well I did it anyway and now its done, its done, the movie has been watched, the characters are in my head, and well I am now hooked.  So this week I have added two new guilty pleasures to the list.

1) Beyonce's "Single Ladies"  Sing it with me now, "if you liked it  then you should've put a ring on it".  Ok now I am going to be singing that in my sleep.

2) "Twilight" ~sigh~  Oh to be 17 again........Ok no wait, I had just had a baby, ummm nope I am done with that.

Now off to actually read the books.

Ok well after I sleep, It's 12:30 and well,  I am tired!

I haven't read the books, either, so I was wondering if I'd like the movie. Glad you wrote this post; guess I'll have to go see it :)

Ok, have you seen the Beyonce and Justin Timberlake skit on SNL with that song?? I have laughed all week over that.

Carrie said...

I got wait to see the movie the books are so good I am on the third one! You won't be able to put them down.

Letti said...

I have only read the first two books and to tell you the truth it took me a littl ewhile to get into them. I still have not seen the movie but I will as soon as the crowds die down.

I have read the books (once) and seen the movie (twice, long story). Share your thoughts when you are finished with the books.

Hubby who has also not read the books really enjoyed the movie too.

Now I'm singing that dang song!!! I haven't read these yet either but the hype has me curious. I'm asking for it for Christmas!

Becoming Me said...

Cute post! I have not read the books yet either, but want to.

jennifer said...

You are killing me with the "Oh I just had a baby never mind" statement. Lord girl, I just adore you!

That movie has gotten away with me and I want to see it again. I love REALLY good first kiss scenes and SIGH SIGH SIGH that was a GOOD one! Like, maybe one of my all time favorite smooch scenes!

And I am half way through the first book. Started reading last night and I am going to lay back down to read after I leave your blog!

I haven't seen the movie yet, but enjoyed the books. You lucky dog, getting to go read them now...you're going to LOVE them. That first exposure is so much fun.

Jenette said...

My husband and son have not read the books but they came with me to see the movie! And now they both want to read them! LOL!

This must be one good book/movie! It's what everyone is talking about.

All I get to watch is Wow Wow Wubbzy and all I get to read is...the cow goes moooooo...A B C D,etc!! I really need to get a sitter and go out for a little while!!

Tamara Jansen said...

My daughter just made me aware of these books but I'm still not qite convinced that I should tackle them.....they're awfully thick. I'm not sure when I'd find the time to read them :(

Amanda@Imperfectly Beautiful said...

Ok, I've read all 4 books twice...yes, I know that's pathetic. I HEART Twilight. And I am a dork.

p.s. Loved the movie.

marky said...

I have not read the books and hang my head in shame not having a clue what the movie is about.

jennifer said...

FINISHED! Started it Friday night and finished Sunday night. GOOD BOOK! And I am going to be at Sam's when it opens to get the others. Tell Syd you was right on the money with how good it was.

And there are things that I shall never discuss on the internet, good things, that have resulted from watching the movie and reading the book. Just ask Bryan.

Have a great week!

I'm here to suck your blood.....Are you sticking your tongue out at me? Caught you didn't I?

I called Pottery Barn and they are only offering the class at 10:00 on the two Sundays. I wish they would do it at 2:00 or something so it would not interfere with church! I asked my husband and he said he does not mind if I missed a Sunday and had a girls time out. I went ahead and signed us up for the Nov 30th class. I hope you can work this out but will understand if it being during church time it would not be a good time. I was planning on asking two friends from church- one is new to blogging(don't think she will miss church b/c she sings on the praise team a lot) and the other is new to church and we were in dinner group together. Connie from Laughter by Lakeside is also planning on going. If you have someone you wanted ask we can call and add them to the class. The class/demo takes about an hour so I thought we could all go to lunch and if anyone wanted to maybe hit a few other stores. I hope you can still make it even with this awful time. We need to nicely tell Pottery Barn their time stinks and they need to do it at 2:00 next time-just for us!

Connie said...

Don't know a thing about Twilight, but sounds fun. So I heard that you're going to Pottery Barn on Sunday. So that means we finally get to meet. Yahooo!!! Can't wait.

tipper said...

Twilight Twilight thats all I've been hearing from one of my girls!! I'm glad you got to watch it and liked it too.

Louise said...

I just watched it last night and I really enjoyed it..I did read the books,the detail in them is great. Neat to hear how someone who hasn't read the books found the movie, I thought it might be hard to understand for someone who hasn't read the books, so goo to hear that you enjoyed it!!
You will love the books!

I think I am the only person on the planet that probably won't read the books or watch the movie. I am a big fat chicken! hee hee

To answer your questions Yes we drive to Huntsville Campus every week we do have Scottsboro Campus but we just are in Hsv! ;)
