601.

That's right, I have had 601 views to my blog in the last month! How awesome is that? Thanks to all who stop by.

Okay, about Twilight. Don't take my word for the movie and book being good. (Even though I was up for a full 24 hours yesterday because of it... after teaching and working at my part-time job until 1 AM, I had to finish the book!) I'm not incredibly picky. And keep in mind that I saw the movie before I read the book, so I didn't have expectations for it. I love a good love story, and I thought this one was unique. In the movie, some of the acting is bad. And there isn't a whole lot of action. And some things are moved around and some things are missing. They've added characters and changed others. This is just how the movie business goes. But the actors playing Bella and Edward had great chemistry, and I believed they loved each other. And like I said... I'm all for a good love story. Being in love is something sorely lacking in my life at the moment, so I like to let myself get immersed in their (fake) love affair.

And I would feel awful if you went out and spent $10 to see it because I gushed about how great it was, and then hate it. Like I said, I'm not picky. Some of my favorite movies are those that others hated. So take what I've said with a grain of salt.

So, yes. It is 1:17 in the afternoon and I just awoke fifteen minutes ago, thanks to Edward and Bella. And now I need the second book! I'm not getting it until Friday, so I am reading the 7th Harry Potter in the meantime. (I know, I know. I really meant to read it when it first came out, but I had so much trouble getting through the 6th one. It was just so boring!) I've heard lots of good things about the 7th one, so I plan on spending today cleaning my apartment, doing laundry, and reading it. I'll probably be done by tomorrow evening, since I have tomorrow completely free, too.

So, those are my Thanksgiving day plans. How about you? (:

Happy Thanksgiving! Enjoy your book reading. We are having a bunch of people over for dinner even though I would much rather just lay around in my pjs and read.

Good luck on the love thing.
