Teen Fest 2008


I took a group of teens to see Twilight, just as any good mom would, anticipating getting some good movie popcorn and little else. Boy was I wrong! The popcorn wasn't all that good and the movie was unexpectedly fantastic! I am looking forward to reading the Stephenie Meyers series upon which the movie was based.

The theatre was FULL of girls, teenage girls, shrill voiced teenage girls. This could have been bad, very bad indeed, but this particular group was quiet, mature, respectful, and all around very well behaved. No cell phones ringing, no shrill shrieking, and good hearted well meant clapping when the movie ended. It was a great night! WooHoo!!!!!!!!!!!

Edward and Bella are beautiful and life is good!

I walked away laughing, but not sure, the hairdresser in me felt some had good hair days, others left in the wind (or trees), who couldn't guess the 'father'pire was not by his pale skin and blonde over'do...*snicker* I will read the books, I am a hard core vampire lover, and related to Stoker himself through my father's side. I grew up hearing how 'she looks just like a Stoker'...my devilish Irish good looks :)

Hope your holiday was marvelous...

Chef E: You are right about the hair styles... messy, messy, messy...

Cool about your blood relatives... I think I'd be exploiting that information every chance I got!

hmmm, It makes me wonder, though, how do you like your steaks?
