Twilight Saga: New Moon → A Delightful Escape10:37 AM
So I'm no movie critic, but I wanted to post a quick note regarding my due date and how I distracted myself from it. My due date was yesterday, 11/24/09. Apparently my baby isn't a conformist and will come when she's good and ready. I suppose she is quite comfortable in mommy's womb. I always wondered why women even expect to go early or on their due date. Enter real life. Why?! Seriously? Because you feel like you've been pregnant forever. Because you love your baby so much and can't imagine loving her any more, but you haven't even met her. Because while watching your stomach roll and contort is quite fascinating, you have a sneaky suspicion that watching the real thing will be SO much better. Because you pee every 30 to 45 minutes. I'm getting carried away. The point is I am super anxious to meet her and needed something to distract me. That's where Twilight comes in.
Other random observations: as expected, everyone is way prettier in this movie, especially Bella. Not sure if that's a good or a bad thing but as someone who loves hair, makeup, and styling, I appreciated it. Also, I loved the small role Dakota Fanning--who adds depth to anything she touches, played. Another thing- get ready for lots of bare chested young men. No more comment there. Lastly you can anticipate lots of near kisses. Depending on whose "team" you're on, you may or may not want these kisses to happen so I won't tell you if that desire will be satiated (or not). OK, so I'm rambling; I told you I'm no movie critic. All in all, I say see it! Read it! Enjoy the escape from whatever real life drama is plaguing you-- be it work, relationships, or waiting anxiously to meet your brand new bundle of joy. I guarantee you'll think of nothing but love, romance, Bella, Edward, Jacob, Victoria, and the Volturi for at least 2 delightful hours.
