First off-- deadline on the collector's edition of Twilight contest ending soon (Dec 2nd Midnight) go here to enter: http://brooketaylorbooks.blogspot.com/2008/11/twilight-contest-no-edward-h8ers.html
Okay, so it was a bizzy bizzy Thanksgiving break. I had two huge meals in like 6 hours. They were essentially the exact same meal. I hurt still. My experimental pumpkin squares thingy was a big hit. It was something they had at Williams-Sonoma, so of course it was good. But for a minute there I thought I'd screwed it up because the crumbly crust business wasn't looking crumbly. Anyway, it was yummy.
On Friday I went to see Twilight! At long last! But... I had a hard time really getting into it and enjoying it and I think it kind of missed the mark somewhere (um--the cheeze factor?!?). Maybe it's just because it followed the book so closely that I knew everything already, but even so it just doesn't hold a candle to other cool supernatural teen flicks like Lost Boys or The Covenant. I did like Edward (was there any doubt?) and I actually like Bella better now (but I still don't get why Edward is so in love with her ???). My favorite character was her dad, he was hilarious. And most of my favorite scenes in the book were also my favorite scenes in the movie. I think it would've been better if it were told from Edward's perspective, and in that way not follow the book so closely and also really up all the emotions and the vampy coolness. I'm glad I went to see it and I think any Twilight fan should at least once. But don't expect it to change any of the haters' minds.
In other exciting news--I rode my two young horses for the first time on Saturday. They've been at the trainer's for the past two months. It was so exciting. They did so well. I can't wait to go trail riding on them here soon. Maybe this weekend if the weather's decent.
Sunday was my B-day and we went to The Cheesecake Factory--yum! But, um...still freaking stuffed from Thursday.
