maybe i'm a little twi-hard . . .
Ok, so i've had a headache for a couple of days & no amount of water, rest or head massaging (read: drilling my knuckles into my temples) is helping . . . so i took to a dark cool cinema this morning to see the first release of the new Twilight movie. You can call me keen, i don't mind. I discovered a must-be-used free ticket & after a few goes with lighting, playing the movie & getting the sound on (in a coordinated fashion) the movie was finally running. I had made brownies before school & packed myself a lunch box with cashews, a turkey sandwich & bottle of water too. Throw in validated parking & my Twilight experience . . . was free!!
Look, i haven't read the Twilight books or taken a side for Team Edward/ Jacob, i don't even think Kristen Stewart is a half decent actress . . . i just find the movies entertaining. I'm not after an intellectual brain drain. I especially love the stylish decor, gorgeous actors (Vampires not Voltaire) & fashionable clothes as the back drop to the movies. The scenes filmed in Canada were breathtaking & the wolves were more . . . believable . . . if you know what i mean - they weren't doing that awkward wolf talking like the other movies. Jacob even acted 'happy' which suits him better than broody.
I was expecting a bunch of school girls giggling in the cinema, nope, it was me, 4 housewives & a husband. We chatted on the way out (complete strangers - bonded by the fact we're all at a Twilight movie at 9.30a.m.) & we liked how ALL the characters from each movie, were listed at the end.
So the verdict . . . i really enjoyed Breaking Dawn Part 2. I'd take my daughters & see it again. It was much better than Part 1 & i would happily watch any spin off movies from the characters. This finale in the saga had heads rolling (literally) & the girls were totally kick arse (Alice, Rosalie, Bella.) I'm still trying to stomach the baby being named Renesme, i wonder how they kept a straight face calling her that?? Truly!! She's a beautiful young actress though.
I treated myself to a little Christmas decorating shopping (after my movie savings) . . . i love rustic, wooden, red & white themed ornaments i would use all year round. I think the stars are a bit witchy wicker.
I took the children swimming on Monday & realised six of our beach towels are at my husband's bachelor pad in Brisbane, so best i top up the collection here in Canberra. As i said on Instagram tonight, "i've never met a tassel fringed towel i didn't like" & at 25% off Country Road VIP sale, i couldn't resist these four.
A lovely day, good movie, great shopping & delicious lunch. Off to bed to see if i can have another 9 hour nap like last night, it was bliss, even if i wasn't well. Love Posie
