Time Passing- that was well done. The one downer- It doesn't snow in Washington!!!
Edward's Chameleon-Esque Car
If his lousy parking job distracted you, perhaps you didn't notice that when Edward pulled into Forks High, his famed Volvo was no longer gray, as it was in the novels and the first movie. Hey, Chris Weitz, what gives? "I've taken a real spanking for this, a lot of heat," the director explained. "I'll tell you exactly why: Volvo wanted to give us a new, different car so I didn't want to paint it exactly the same silver color, because then [Twilighters] would be saying, 'Why are they trying to say that it's the same car; it's obviously not.' So, I thought, 'Well, I'll choose a new color!' And I thought I would choose slate black, not a reflective black, because it actually absorbs light and it would reflect the mood and melancholy and depression [of his character]. I know I got it wrong, I apologize for that. But that is my reasoning."

When it came time for Edward to strip, my younger niece leans over to me and whispers "Pay attention to his nipples."
Her: "Just look." Then, reveal. "See? They don't look right!"
I hope Mr. Pattinson reads this at some point, because I defended his nipples. "I think it's just all the makeup and lightning and CGI." Then later, after the fight, where Felix has him in a chokehold, I lean over to her and say "See? They look just fine there."
We were still having this discussion when we left the theater (after pausing to watch the rest of the movie of course). My older niece defused the situation by saying "And then we have Taylor, who's got tiny little nipples on his pecs. They're just tiny round things." (She even made a motion of indicating on her chest where they were on his pecs.)
I love my family.
Oh and Vi- tell your mom she rocks.

I know she said read his mind -- he's not going to hurt me, but I just remember in the book where Bella is reaching out to Jake and Edward is holding her back. I just wonder how it is going to play in Eclipse with Edward not wanting her it be around Jake at all -- seems like it will be a reversal, maybe they will say it's because it's at LaPush and he can't be there and Alice can't see...I don't know, that's just the only thing that made me wonder.
I also have a question. If anyone knows -- What did Aro say at the end of his scene when they are walking out before Heidi comes in? He says something in a foreign language. I'm guessing Italian? I looked back in my book to see if I had forgotten, but I couldn't find anything. I know they discuss la tua cantante in the beginning of the scene, but this is different. Any ideas?

I beg to differ! I live in Washington and last snow season we had a new record snowfall for the season of over 100 inches. However, what I presume you meant to say here was that it doesn't snow in Forks. Again, I beg to differ. My first husband was born and raised in Forks and I can assure you that it does snow there, although not often due to the proximity to the ocean. So for any of you who thought that didn't seem realistic, you can decide for yourself, I guess.
