I kinda had a crappy, stressful week. I have A LOT going on with my job. Not that I'm complaining, because Lord knows, I'm grateful for having a job in the pharmaceutical industry right now, as so many companies have downsized. So, because of that, the attitude that pretty permeates all things is "Bend over and take it..." if you know what I mean. This week was the official kick-off of the bending over part and will cumulate in a 5 day frenzy of bending over in a few weeks. (i.e. National Sales Meeting.)
That all being said, I needed to cut loose last night. Have some fun- and guess what I did? I drove to two different theaters with Youngest to try to get tickets to see "New Moon." Yes- I was one of those moms- in line with all the other moms (very few dads- I must say...) and teenagers galore! I will also say- there were lots of other women in my age category out with their friends minus the kids part....
Now, I don't go to many opening night premieres of movies so this was a treat to have so much audience participation. When the trailers ended and the opening of the film was starting- the entire audience gasped and applauded. Throughout different parts in the movie- (primarily when one of the lead male characters was on screen- especially without a shirt..) the audience would erupt in cheer, followed by "shush" because no one wanted to miss a word of the dialog.
My opinion of the film? I thought they did a fine job of telling the story of New Moon- but as a reader- I feel you can never the do the book the justice it truly deserves. That being said- I do think the casting of these characters is spot on- and they bring the characters to life.
Youngest and I had a great time and it was just the stress reliever I needed to forget about my crappy week....can't ask for more than that.
Oh- and the winners of the Jewels by Jules contest-
Beth and Terese! Congrats and thanks for your comments.
p.s. Management reserves the right to not photograph the official contest winner being chosen- because if you waited for that to happen you would have to wait until next Christmas to wear the winning items...(see above for explanation.) Thank you.
