I spent part of my day watching Twilight on FX . I still can’t get over how bad the acting is. Maybe I’m just being overly critical because I loved the books, and consequently expected so much for the movie version of the story. I just think the movie version could have been better, that’s all. Better acting, better interpretation of the story. I cringe everytime I see movie Bella tell movie Edward romantic love lines and vice versa. I guess the problem is that I don’t believe them. Or I envisioned the lines being told so differently. And yet I’ll watch these movies, because I do like the story. I like supporting the franchise. I appreciate the movie efforts, even if it doesn’t meet personal expectations. I’ll buy them all in DVD just for the sake of buying them all in DVD format. I guess my love for the story is greater than wanting to watch a quality movie. At least I think The Hunger Games first movie rates higher than the first Twilight movie, but my complaint is still the same. I'd rather read the book. I shouldn't be blue. Isn't that usually the case? The book is always better than the movie? For Twilight and The Hunger Games, I say yes.
Okay, I'll go through my stuff ONE MORE TIME. And I'll try something new while I'm at it. It may change my perception of how (or why) I'm attached to certain stuff. I'm going to take an inventory of everything I have, write it all down. And I hope it doesn't take more than a day. Sometimes things look differently on paper. So, this may be painful, but it may be worth the effort. I think it'll be a true test to just how much I want ALL the stuff that I have. I have a feeling it'll be a real eye-opener.
Note to self: after I move and get settled in my new place, please go back to eating better! Why don't I do it now? Because I'm a mess, and I just want to eat emotionally when I'm stressed. But, I swear, once I'm more settled, I'm going back to 1% low-fat chocolate milk, granola cereal with almond milk, and veggie burger patties with egg whites. I miss my healthier food choices.
