~ The cover of your book looks great--congratulations! Is this the final cover or still just a possibility? Enjoy you 2nd viewing of BD, and I look forward to reading your thoughts.Susie~
Good luck with your Toastmaster's Speech this week. Your potluck lunch at work sounds especially yummy, and what a wonderful way to celebrate the Thanksiving holiday. When will Sonny Boy be home? Fourth viewing of BD2 already, hmmmm.....you might be giving Caryn
a run for her money. Grayce~
I hope everything's okay with your stepson and am sorry he's unhappy. I remember C. Thomas Howell, Patrick Swayze, and all those guys...loved The Outsiders. Now I'm really
I think the revamped Red Dawn looks good, although I get tired of all these movie reduxs....not really necessary, in my opinion. Regarding Jacob's mortality in the saga.....don't the wolves stop aging beyond their current state, as long as they're still actively shifting to/from human and wolf-form, or am I getting mixed up with fanfiction? That's too funny that you son heard at school that "Carmichael died,"
although it's disappointing the kids are spoiling the ending for one another. I remember my daughter being so upset when she heard at school that Dumbledore died, before she had the chance to read HP and the Half-Blood Prince. I, too loved Lee Pace as Garrett, and would have been happy with a little more screeen time for him. I believe Bill Condon said something about filming Garret's inspiring battlefield speech, and that it will be part of the deleted scenes. Sandy~
Are your girls keeping you and hubs running in ninety different directions these days? Which fanfic are you reading?Sarah~
I remember reading Midnight Sun just after finishing all four Twilight books in the summer of 2008. I missed the series so much and didn't want it to end, and I read everything Twi-related I could get my hands on, including MS and the outtakes from Stephenie's website. MS is "the bomb"....there's just nothing quite like Edward's point of view.Amanda Beth~
I totally agree with your thoughts about "A Thousand Years," and I've teared up just hearing the first couple of notes of it during my commute to and from work the past couple of days. I'm seriously in a post-Twilight funk with some definite withdrawal going on.
Just in case I ever get around to posting a picture directly to the Lex, how do I shrink it to the appropriate size? In English, please? Austin~

I'm glad you were able to finally see the movie and would be interested to know, from a guy's perspective, which parts were emotional for you. I, too remember reading Stephenie's excerpt of Midnight Sun several years ago and nearly bashed my computer against the wall when I realized Steph stopped writing, before
the meadow scene. Marielle~
The book series I've mentioned in the past, and Sandy, Desiree, and I have read is called The Mortal Instruments
, by Cassandra Clare. The world consists of humans (mundanes), Shadowhunters (who hunt demons), vampires, werewolves, fairies, and various supernatural characters. The stories are very compelling and the books are rather addictive, although not quite to the level of Twilight. Jamie Campbell Bower from Harry Potter will play the lead male protagonist in the movie.
Hello to Desiree, Kayla, Lulu, Tonise, Sean, Ann Marie, Brenda, Caryn, Amy, Brienna
, and anyone else I've missed.
I'm leaving directly from work Wednesday afternoon to drive to my in-laws, where hubs and the kids have been visiting since Monday. To those of you who celebrate Thanksgiving, have a happy and blessed holiday....and a wonderful week to the rest of you, as well. I'm thankful for all my amazing HH siblings, and to the unforgettable Twilight saga, which brought us all here together in the first place.
