Good luck on the housing situation. I decided a long time ago that selling mine would be out of the question - I have a lot of work to do on it.
As far as Twilight the movie - I saw it in the theater and was horribly disappointed. Catherine Hardwick & Melissa Rosenberg completely butchered the book for their own purposes, telling the story through the lens of "teen angst" and dark indie crap. They have no clue on this genre. Basically they looked at the books and said "These are great, now let's change everything." No meadow scene, no blood typing scene, no conversations between Edward & Bella in the cafeteria, Bella not cooking?! No development of the love between E & B - this movie SUCKED!!!!
Twilight was a romance between a vampire & a human - not a teen anger fest with remnants of "13" & Lords of Dogtown. I'm glad CH was canned - too bad MR was no sent out the door, too.
Oh well, to each his/her own. We will see what Chris Weitz will do with New Moon.
