Eclipse This

Yes I love it. Yes I'm excited. Don't judge.

Stephenie Meyer's - "Eclipse", while not my favorite of the series is the better written of all four books (grammatically, the story line itself is somewhat lacking). Oh and let us not forget, there is finally some action and fighting.

Personally I'm looking forward to this movie out of all four (or maybe five?) films. I see some real potential to actually witness descent acting from the cast and some more mature directing. I know that most of the actors are better than the performances that have been show to date!

With New Moon set for DVD release in just over one week and the movie Eclipse coming in June the first trailer Eclipse is here!

I see some real promise! Well from Robert Pattinson anyway. I can't say much for what I see of the only other two shown in this trailer.

So what do you think? Are you into the Twilight Saga at all? Are sparkly vampires just not your thing? Love the books, but hate the movies? Love or hate all young adult literature?

Let's discuss it!

Drawing a Blank

Last night Husband and I were watching Enemy at the Gates. Which just happens to have 4 fabulous actors in it, all of which happen to be easy on the eyes. (Jude Law = nicccce!)

I was enthralled in the story, invested in the characters, nearly bitting my nails. Our conversation:

Me - "I can't believe that we own this and I've never seen it!"

Husband - "Yes you have. We saw it in the theater when it first came out."

Me - " I have no recollection of ever having seen this movie before."

Husband - " We even had a lengthy conversation about the awkward sex scene."

Me - "Really? Are you sure?"

I still don't have any memory of having ever seen the movie before last night. He does this to me occasionally. I think I must periodically blank out or repress certain random events for our relationship.

Unless... He went and saw it with his 'other girlfriend'.

Which would mean I'm still sane. Now if only I could explain the supposed conversations, that he claims we had, about plans for the weekend, that I have no memory of, on this 'imaginary other girlfriend'...

What's Glowing in the Sky?

...Oh right that would be the sun! It has been so beautiful out and we've been celebrating at home.

Well celebrating as much as Husband studying for his OB/GYN test and OSCE and me trying to finish processing pictures of the sweetest little newborn girl! (slideshow to come!)

We opened the blinds and the doors and let the sunlight pour in through our many windows. The heat was off and there was a fire in the fireplace all weekend to keep the chill out of the house. It was wonderful. Even the antisocial neighbor was outside!

I got in a couple of runs that were great considering I'm STILL trying to shake the last of this retched cold. I've almost made it to the 130 mile mark for the year. I think I will need to celebrate the 150 mark with a race!

On another note Marissa over at Married to a Medical Student gave me this:


Thanks Marissa! And I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you in the Match!

Along the same lines, I've notice a few new readers recently. I'd like to say welcome to my little corner of the blog world!
