Hello ladies! Hope everyone's had a lovely start to their weekend.
I haven't been home long, and was able to finally see The King's Speech
at the theatre with a coworker tonight. It was wonderful, and I absolutely loved Colin Firth, Geoffrey Rush, and Helena Bonham Carter's performances. For you Harry Potter fans out there....even Dumbledore and Wormtail made brief appearances in the movie.
But equally as good as the movie—was the fact that the first preview shown was for Water for Elephants
My friend and I were excited and thought the movie looked amazing, and of course Robkowski looked gorgeous on that big screen. My friend (who is a Twi-fan, but not nearly as obsessed as myself) said she hasn't looked forward to a movie's release this much since Twilight.
I'm enjoying a bit of quiet Lexing time to myself tonight. Hubs and the kids drove to his parents in East Tennessee last night. I'm riding up that way with some close friends tomorrow morning, and our families are staying in a chalet in the Smoky Mountains for a couple of days. It should be relaxing and a good time, but I will miss my girls here at the “House”, as well as my Robcrack.
~ Loved your wild Halfway House dream, and am flattered that we were so well represented.
~ I hope your friend decides to give WFE a try. I've actually just lent my first copy of WFE for the third time, to another co-worker. I just knew
there was a reason I felt compelled to buy a second copy of WFE, with the beautiful cover photo of Robkowski and Marlena (I hope to read it one more time before April 22nd).
I'm sorry for your loss of certain family members and friends. As Jaclyn asked, was this related to the earthquake? I hope you have a great time on your upcoming holiday.
You're absolutely right about the character of August—I think Christoph Waltz was a brilliant choice, and he'll convey just the right mix of charming, handsome, and extremely dangerous, at the same time. Way to get into the St. Patty's Day spirit with your green font yesterday, and especially Leprochan Rob.
Good luck to your Butler Bulldogs Saturday! Thanks for your condolences about Vandy's loss. I'm just so frustrated with them.
This is the third time in four years they've been “upset” in the first round, to a significantly lower seed. We actually had much better luck in the tourney about six or seven years ago as a lower seed, when we unexpectedly made it to the Sweet 16 in consecutive years. Maybe Vandy is just better as an underdog. Be safe on your trip to Cincinnati.
~ I loved Colin Firth and Hugh Grant in both Bridget Jones movies too. Something about Hugh Grant makes me laugh too, especially when he acts a little awkward and goofy; I absolutely loved him in Nottinghill. I'm excited that you've started reading Water for Elephants
.....we can't wait to hear your thoughts. It' seems like there has been beautiful weather almost everywhere the past day or so. I think Mother Nature is trying to remind us that Spring really is on the way. Hope you had a nice time cooking for your parents, and let us know how your new recipes turned out.
~ I appreciate your support for my team, but I'm so sorry you put Vandy in the final four of your bracket at work. Had I known ahead of time, I would have warned you not to pick them too far
(as they've lost in the first round of the tourney the past couple of years). But that's part of what makes filling out those brackets so much fun.....you win some, and you lose some. I hope you enjoy your week off work during Sonny Boy's Spring Break. Any big plans for you or the family? Does your hubby have any days off work yet? I certainly hope we see at least a bit of Robward's “full booty” in Breaking Dawn Part 1 and
Thanks for reminding us about Rob's Leno appearance. The DVR is recording as we speak, and I'll check it out in a bit. Did anyone see his appearance on MTV tonight? Or was he only on MTV.com? We're happy to see you whether you leave us with a megapost, or a minipost. Sometimes making megaposts can be a little exhausting.
Hope your Dad has a wonderful birthday, and I'm sure your family will have a great time celebrating this weekend. How is American Idol this season? This is the first time I haven't watched it in five or six seasons, but I just couldn't muster up the enthusiasm after all the changes with the judges.
~ We'll keep you and your family in our thoughts and prayers for good test results for your mom.
~ Hope your day improved.
