Happy Bits

The other day, I took a break from baking and J and I were standing up and snuggling with each other in the front room. Ella came up to us and wrapped her arms around our legs and looked up at us with this glorious little smile and said, "best friends."

Twilight was fun. The movie itself was entertaining enough, but the company was great. My nephew ended up coming along, too, (more to get out of the house than anything else, I suspect), but we had a nice time. The obnoxious part about teen movies would be the teen audience. And we had the great misfortune to sit in front of a row of kids who had already seen the film so they had no compunctions about talking through most of it. Ah well, at least I've seen it now and, oh holy hell yes, Robert Pattinson is damn hot.

I'm watching White Christmas and it just makes me so happy.

********

I'm meeting my former boss for lunch tomorrow and am really looking forward to it. It's been months since we've gotten together and she's a dear friend. We very much need to catch up.

********

I have tentative plans to meet up with two friends from middle school (oh that was sooo long ago!) for dinner in a few weeks. It should be a fun girls' night out. God knows I need one.

********

There's still one more day left to the weekend!

i am going to buy that vampire book that you just saw the movie of. twilight right?
i remember marc carlson and i went to movies years ago and we sat behind old ladies (haha maybe they were 40-50's b/c we were in HS) and they were saying how the movie didnt compare to the book the whole time. it was highly irritating! so marc and i were the quiet teens and the rowdy moms/grandmoms were in front of us. funny.
