New Moon

Last week was just one of those weeks - illness, visit to A&E, torture that was the physio which also happens again this week, doctors appointments, screaming kids, misbehaving dogs......the list goes on.

Anyway on a more positive note NEW MOON. Any fan won't need me to elaborate but the second film in the Twilight saga certainly didn't disappoint. I've always felt sorry for Jacob when reading the books and actually wanted them to end up together. I think New Moon will have brought Taylor Lautner lots of new fans. He reminds me of a young Anthony Keidis but obviously without the drugs etc.

and whilst browsing the net I found a link to the actor who will be playing Seth Clearwater in Eclipse - cute little kid.

I don't think I would choose to be in the cinema with the same crowd of people. The 20ish woman sat next to me was obviously drunk, kept laughing at inappropriate moments and didn't have a clue about some of the characters but tried to make out she did. The rest of the audience wasn't too bad but there was a lot of talking during the showing which I am assuming is people discussing certain events in comparison to the book. What surprised me is how young some of the people were. One lady had a young boy with her who was probably around 8 or 9. My guess is that she wanted to see it desperately but couldn't get a babysitter. There were also crowds of girls who I would estimate at around 11 or 12. Personally having read all the books I wouldn't think it suitable for under 13s maybe even older. It gets a bit deep at times especially in Breaking Dawn.

Got lots of catching up to do with lots of things. One in particular is the Holidays In Hand class by Jessica Sprague. I signed up on the very first day but it is now day 8 and I haven't done anything other than looked at the first two days.

I haven't seen the movie yet - hoping to get to it this weekend - can't wait! And hopefully the crowds will be a little less crazy...
