Well, kind of. I'm playing with a couple of outlines, thinking about new ideas, cleaning and running errands. I went to my local B&N and signed stock. Check out my Tweets on my sidebar if you want to see a pic. They only had 1 copy of BEST ENEMIES, so that was cool.
Now we must talk Twilight and New Moon. Be prepared for girly craziness. :D
On Thursday, my theater was cool enough to show Twilight first, at 9:15 and then to show New Moon at midnight. I was freaking out all day and even only drank 1 Diet Coke so I didn't make BFF crazy with my already hyper state. One of our convos that day:
BFF: Are you totally spazzing?
Me: YES! But I only had one Diet Coke since, you know, I want to live and you'd kill me in my hyper state.
BFF: Ohhhhhhh, greeeat. (She was half-serious.) ;)
She told me to just go to our fave place for sparkly drinks and to calm down before she got there. I tried and spent 20something minutes talking to anyone near me, including my fave BR peeps, abt the night's awesomeness.
BFF arrived with a rose for me (again, pic on the Twitter feed) 'cause she knew tonight was a huuuuge deal for me. We talked Twilight/New Moon and eventually headed to the theater where we meet up with her boy.
Since I'd never seen Twilight on the big screen, I almost lost it when RPattz walked into the caf for the first time. It. Was. Awesome. Watching Twilight on a screen that size was like I'd never seen the movie before. I started thinking about where I was that time last year and remembered BFF had called me just before going to see Twilight at the same theater and telling me about it. Very cool that we got to see it together. Surreal.
Then...25 mins till New Moon. Everyone was ready. The theater was packed with all ages and lots of guys. (Most of whom were Team Jacob when they vocalized it in the theater.) The movie started and I thought hyperventilation might occur. But, you know, I stayed cool. Ish. ;)
The movie crowd was the best--there was cheering, sighing (longing sighs), and shout outs for Jacob or Edward.
The high points:
* Taylor Lautner (Yes, I put him first.) The kid thought he was going to lose his job after Twilight and he worked his butt off to put on 30 pounds of muscle to play werewolf Jake.
* RPattz looking as if he'd been dying without KStew during their separation.
* Alice driving the car through Italy.
* The fight sequence with the Volturi.
* Dakota Fanning killing it as Jane. Scary with the red contacts. And speaking of...
* New contacts for the vamps. Awesome.
* The special effects for the wolf transformations. I was a little worried, but they pulled it off quite well.
* The acting. Much improved.
Okay! Forcing myself to stop here. :) It's better, in a different way, than Twilight. I cannot wait for Eclipse. Where's my countdown clock?
