First and foremost – go rent “Waitress”. It came out last year and was betrayed by whoever was supposed to be marketing it. Jon and I watched it last night and it was one of the best movies that I’ve seen in a while. I liked it as much as I liked Juno, except I have the feeling I’ll love this one more and more each time I watch it (I still love Juno, but some of the dialogue gets tedious the second and third time. Don’t you think? Anyone? Anyone? No? Maybe?).
Second – I let Jon pick the movie this weekend and he chose Hellboy. Which ended up being pretty much just what I expected (very fantastical, but otherwise not even worth another word)…but I’d just like to say that if you’d like to wet your pants in terror, then look up a trailer for “Quarantine”. The preview played before our movie and it took five years off my life.
Third, I got released from my calling on Sunday. I was only in Young Women’s for about six months, but the rest of the presidency has been in for a couple of years, so they released us all. No new calling yet, but I’ve been told not to get “too comfortable”.
And fourth, we spent some time in Borders the other night, a day or two after “Breaking Dawn” was released (The fourth and final installment of the Twilight series) and just for fun, I picked up a copy and flipped to the end to see if I could find out the finale by skimming a couple of pages. I KID YOU NOT, I opened the book up directly to THIS PAGE.
Sorry for the blurriness, but please look at the FIRST WORDS on the FIRST (and only) PAGE I LOOKED AT. Thank you, Stephanie Meyer. Thank you. Really. I mean it. You made my night. You really did.
PS- I don't think "chuckle" means what she thinks it means. Is it really possible to "laugh inwardly or quietly" "expressing great joy or triumph"? Hm. You decide.
And I promise that this is the last time I'll mention these books.
