Happy Birthday Chrissy!
Congrats on reaching your 20's—the best is yet to come!
~ We certainly hope any radiation doesn't reach your country, and we'll keep all of you in our thoughts and prayers, along with Japan, Hawaii, and anyone else in that region of the world. Glad to know everything's still okay.
I was pleasantly surprised to discover I actually had TWO
chapters of WDH to read....I don't know how I had missed the second part of Bella's visit with the Cullens. Both chapters were terrific, and I plan to reread them again since I gobbled them up so greedily last night.
I hope I've said this before, but your characterization of Bella and Edward amazes me. They are so perfectly like Stephanie Meyer's Bella and Edward, yet they're different in subtle ways and completely stand on their own, because of what they've encountered in your
story. I can't wait to see where you take this story, and which path you follow. I laughed out loud at your description of the “PFach hug at 12:00”. I'd forgotten that Arizona doesn't follow daylight savings time. For some reason I was thinking the state of Indiana also didn't follow DST....Caryn
~ Thanks for your thoughts on the Vanity Fair article; I'm glad you found the new issue. I finally found the new issue a few days ago, but still haven't read the article.
I think I was so pumped to finally find the issue after searching about ten different stores over the course of a couple of days.....I guess I was exhausted by the thrill of victory.
I'm looking forward to Rob's MTV interview, and I think it's the same day he'll be on Jay Leno. Time to set the DVR's now.
~ Loved the pictures of ActionRob you posted. It's good to know he's so helpful in the kitchen. I'll have to keep that in mind when he comes to visit here next month. Do you think he'll help with laundry too?
Thanks for enlightening me on the drink, "In Bru". I guess I thought it looked like bottled beer, and I always enjoy learning about your Scottish foods and customs. Hope your insomnia improves—maybe you could try getting up to read for awhile when you do wake, and see if that makes you sleepy again. The dark silver/gray colors for some of your wedding party sound very pretty. Have you started looking for your dress yet?
~ I'm glad you finally found the Vanity Fair issue too. I guess the southeastern US must be behind the times, as apparently it took Christina
awhile to find it too. Hope you adjust quickly to the time change. Do your students seem more tired, like the rest of us? I had to physically wake up both kids this morning from a dead sleep, because it was still dark outside at 6:45 am.
~ Hey there girl! Hope you're doing well and enjoying your classes. Thanks for checking in with us! The book WFE was very popular around the HH, and we're eagerly anticipating the movie's release.
~ Hope all is well with you. I love the “oldies but goodies” you posted for Trine
. Those were some of the first pictures we frequented around this place, and I remember being oh so proud
when I finally learned how to link Robcrack to the HH.
~ I'm glad to hear your friends in Japan are safe. How terrifying that they had to walk so far just to get to their eight-year-old daughter. I'm sure SonnyBoy (and you) are sad that Les Mis is finished, although at least you have your lives back.
I'm glad it was such a huge success, and a wonderful experience for him. Do you think Sonny Boy will consider participating in theatre in some form or fashion, in college? Is he sad that many of his close friends will probably attend college elsewhere, or is he excited about all the new people he'll meet next year? That's pretty cool that you were in Tofino (and Rob might be there too). Is there any chance your SIL would know Rob, if she were to randomly run across him out on the street?
I'm impressed with your knowledge of the NCAA tournament—you've definitely done your research.
You can also cheer for my team....Vanderbilt
willl be playing Richmond in the first round on Thursday at 3:10 (EST, I guess). We also have another Nashville team playing in the NCAA—Belmont University is a private, liberal arts college that's probably best known for their business and music programs. They're not as well known as most of the larger colleges and universities playing in the NCAA, but they're very well coached and almost upset Duke (one of the #1 seeds) in the first round last year. I'm a little out of synch with the time change too, and it was strange getting out of bed this morning when it was very dark, when I would much rather have been sleeping.
~ Are you already waiting by the mailbox for your Vanity Fair from Caryn
~ Thanks for the link to the production notes for WFE. I'll check those out tonight or tomorrow. I think the WFE soundtrack looks pretty neat. I like that it seems to have authentic music from the 20's and 30's on the soundtrack. I guess it's just one more way the cast and crew have worked hard to ensure this movie is a very accurate representation of the time period, and the traveling circus setting.
~ I'm glad you're enjoying your Zumba class--I've heard it's very fun and a great way to burn some major calories. I'm looking forward to Rob's MTV interview too. They do seem to be one of the few sites that don't always ask him all the typical "vampire" questions.
