I was happy to see the special effects were considerably better... the running and the glittery skin was better, the wolves turned out pretty good too. I was worried that they were the size of real wolves but luckily they were gigantic like they are supposed to be in the book. All in all I have yet to think of something I didn't like about it. It stayed true to the book for the most part. ( there was a little more action with the Volturi but they needed more action and it was nothing crazy). Every aspect of this movie was better than Twilight. They did really well with making it depressing and dark and really showing the shift in Bella's character. I'm not gonna lie, I did really like Jacob alot more in the movie. I did NOT like him the first time I read Twilight, but the more times I have read the series the more he grows on me.
I really hope they pick up Breaking Dawn as well because there are SO many things that happen in that book that I want to see. The fourth is by FAR my favorite. I can't imagine that they wouldn't though because this movie franchise brings in SO much money and the fans would probably go insane if they didn't make it. Tweens everywhere going mental.
I also can't wait until Eclipse, which I think comes out in June. I hope it turns out as good as this one did! The only thing I could have done without last night doesn't even have to do with the movie. I could have done without that retarded line and disorganized theater, as well as those uncomfortable chairs, and all the idiot girls that had to scream when Jacob wasn't wearing his shirt and during kissing scenes. UGH shut up you idiots.
Well I think that is enough of my Nerdy post. Time to get to work...

I also finally got some shelves up in my newly painted dressing/ sewing room. So my Dunnys ( well some of them...) are back on display! Still have some in the box :( and I do not want the ones on my shelf with the pottery to stay there. So I need some more shelving/ displays. But at least some are out. Zach and I have a total of 82 different dunnys, not including repeats. I love my collection!

This is a serious step but he seems like he definately wants to try and do it. It would definately be better to be putting our money into something we own rather than "throwing it away" on rent. Pretty exciting but scary at the same time. Major financial responsibility. Not sure if it will ACTUALLY happen but its a big possibility. And I am wondering if he wants to go through with this.. if there is more in store for us than just buying a house. No idea though. I am in the dark. HA! Only time will tell.
Also work is SERIOUSLY overloading me. I am super overwhelmed right now. I litterally have 18 BIG projects that all pretty much need to be done ASAP. Pretty sure I have too much work for one person to handle. Not to mention that is only things dealing with marketing, and I run a store on top of all that! Sheesh! I hate feeling stressed and anxious, but at the moment I don't think it is possible....

So the color really isn't awful for now. But I think I am going to make it look a little more rustic and do a wash over it with a lighter green, but the darkercolor will still come through. Maybe I'll paint it and then wipe the edges? Not sure. Guess I need to google techniques on antiquing.

I had just finished my lunch and was at the front desk and a car pulled up. The passenger opened the door and was hunched over outside the door. And I am sitting there thinking.... what the heck. then they wiped there mouth with a towel and I am thinking OMG they are throwing up! Gross. Anyone who knows me should know I HATE throw up. So I am on the phone with my mom and I am like what do I do!? I tell her their license plate number. The woman is now standing outside barfing. My mom tells me to ask if they are going to clean it up. So they are pulling up to turn around and I go out there. I ask them excuse me are you going to clean that up? And they just look at me like I am insane. So I say this is a business and I can't have that in my parking lot. You need to clean it up. So they are like well she was throwing up before she got here. I say well that makes no difference. So they are like well she's pregnant. And I'm like I don't care if shes pregnant it is still pretty disgusting. Then they proceed to tell me I'm disgusting and I need to clean it up and drive away.
So now I have a vomit pile in the dead center of my parking lot where customers will see it and have to walk by it if they come here. Thankfully a flock of blackbirds ate all the chunks.
How are there people that inconsiderate and filthy. At least throw up in the grass! UGH. I am so grossed out and disgusted.
