But right now, I am going to take a minute and reveal my complete and utter "book nerd" status. Tonight, I spent almost 5 hours at a party talking about books, and a movie made from those books, and the pros and cons - and several rabbit trails about other books and movies.
But mostly, we talked about .....
Here is where I must state emphatically that I am not a "movie person". Not at all. I am very much a "book person". Tonight we watched Twilight, and it was my first time to see it. There have been very few movies made from books that have pleased me.
This was not one of them.
I didn't hate it, or anything that extreme. But it really couldn't compete with this...
I think I will read the whole series again. I have only read it once, and it has been at least six months.
Does that make me a nerd?
Is that a surprise?
I had a wonderful time at a party, met new ladies (who were at least as nerdy as me, and I mean that totally as a complement, if any of you are reading this!) and I got to gawk as some really hot young actors in a trendy movie.
They did not fulfill my imagination of what the characters looked like, or should act like, and none of them were as handsome as my gorgeous, talented and romantic husband (who occasionally stops by to read my blog) but it was a fun night.
I'm so glad the written language was invented... and the printing press... and the handy dandy personal computer.
I love words!
