This morning, I get to stream EC's premiere (thru E! online) and it was kinda cool to see the massive fans out there and like camping out for days to get a glimpse of the cast. And I'm like thinking if I am living near LA, am I going to that as well? hehe. And I love how some of 'em like Billy Burke and Peter and Jackson visited the tent city and checked some of 'em. R and K and Taylor were all great in the premiere, I'm not a fan of Rob's maroon/red tux but it was okay. Kristen has super hot dress and Taylor was just really nice with the interviews and all.

Friday here already and no plans for the weekend..I think I have to clean my room and just plain rest. And on the 30th is Eclipse already and it's a holiday here. We're just lucky that on that day it's the inauguration of our new president and so they declared it holiday. so yay! I might see the film much earlier I guess since no work and all. :)

Okay time to go now. Hope you all have a fun weekend! Love you all!

Hi all! Just wanted to remind you all that our policy about Eclipse Movie spoilers can be found here. It's a bit complicated, what with the Premiere and early screenings happening this weekend and the proper release not till next Wednesday, so do have a look before posting about the movie. I know you guys all like to keep us happy! (*grin*).

Explain your avatar: A quote from one of my favorite books from one of my least favorite series from one of my favorite authors.

Tattoos piercings: Ears double pierced, cartiledge left ear, nose, navel, used to have a tongue ring. Have a tattoo of a star with a music note in it.

Hobbies, interests (3): Reading, writing, music
3 songs that should be played at your funeral: never thought about, but I do know there will be a stipulation in my will that there will be drinking at my wake, someone must tell an embarassing childhood story at the memorial and a limmerick, bawdy song, or dirty joke must be told at the funeral.

Girls who know how to have a good time, don't take things too seriously, don't continually obsess about appearance and are not afraid to get dirty
Label me like this: once at school I tried to get people to put a label on me or fit me into a category. They came up with one just for me, it's called "Sami"

Hey, people: just a reminder that as a matter of internet safety, YOU SHOULD NOT POST YOUR FULL NAME AND/OR PERSONAL DETAILS ON THE BOARDS. Our conversations here feel very private but everyone and their uncle can (and does) read what we write on the Lex!

See HERE for our guidelines (ie rules) concerning internet safety.




*takes off mod hat for a moment to add...*

The Ghost and Mrs. Muir!!! I LOVED that movie. Now there is a film that I can honestly say I liked much better than the book -- which I have also read!

@december, I think people in this thread are old enough to know if they want to share their full name online. And come on, it's not like they're sharing creditcardnumbers, it's just a name, that you can easily look up anyway. Right?
That being said, maybe i need to read the rules again, it's been a while..:)

Hey Lexlings, i ddon't have much to say today, everything has been said in the lexily rant topic..

So i hope you all have a great weekend :)

MOD REPLY: I think what you fail to understand is that this is a Lexicon policy. We don't use real full names in the public areas. I tried to hint at it the first time, trying to be nice about it. December was more to the point with the link to the policy. You are definitely old enough to share your full name, address, whatever you want with each other, but do it in pm. You can even pm multiple people at a time (I think up to 7 people). In light of that, I will be editing out your full names. Please help us out with this. Thank you.

@mods fair enough, i guess weve been here so long, the rules have become a far away memory for us. We might need to read it again to save you guys some work and probs :) I also think we tend to forget we are part of a greater thing, because we are so close in this topic and most dont even stray to other topics :) So thnx for the reminder and Im sure we are all going to be on our best behaviour from now on..
