I always like new friends, love meeting new people from other states and other countries. BUT...if you speak and write in Russian which I can't read, it's going to be pretty impossible for us to communicate, therefore there's not a lot of reason for us to friend each other. It takes too long for me to try to translate something. I wish I spoke or read another language but I don't, only English. The reason I'm posting this is I've gotten several friend requests lately but all the peoples' journals are in Russian and I don't know what they're saying.
Although I had intended to wait until next week, I managed to maneuver events this afternoon in such a way that I found myself headed to the local theater for the 4:15 Eclipse showing. Armed with a too sweet Dr. Thunder, nachos with extra peppers, and a big box of Milk Duds, I sat back in my seat and thoroughly enjoyed the next two hours. Yeah, I can't help it, I'm an Edward fan. Jacob can take his shirt off all day long and I'm sorry I'm just not impressed with someone who thinks so much of himself. Bella...she had a little more life to her than in the previous films but she still gets on my nerves in a big way. Love Alice, Jasper, Carlisle, Rosalie, & Emmett. Don't know what happened to Esme, she just was kind of there & that's it. Great Victoria and the new guy Riley. Did not miss Bella's friends being absent through most of the movie. Got a kick out of Charlie, he never changes.
So now we wait how long? Did I hear Nov. 2011? Oh well, something to pine over. The Narnia preview looked good as did the Harry Potter. I miss having a new Harry Potter book to look forward to.
Did anybody watch Supernatural tonight? I was pleasantly surprised to find it was one I had missed seeing somehow, must've been on one of the kids basketball or football game nights or something. I liked the interaction between Bobby & Dean. "Idgit." I don't know who the old guy was who played Dean but he did pretty good.:)
I've been reading the latest book by Elizabeth Peters, an Amelia Peabody mystery though the character of Ramses has slowly become my favorite over the years. Finally finished reading To Kill a Mockingbird last night, wish I had the old movie to watch, maybe the library has it.
I need to go to bed, just one of those nights where my body is tired but my mind is still racing along too fast, wish it had a switch sometimes.
I finally got around to coloring my hair again. I was looking fairly ridiculous with a wide band of graying hair showing. Some people look good with gray hair. I just look old, I swear it magnifies the wrinkles and washes the color out of my face.
I've been moving around the house all evening, trying to find a quiet spot to re-read To Kill a Mockingbird and get away from the argumentative children. I love this book but it's to be read slowly and with pauses so the reader can get the full effect of it. So many things about it are eerily familiar from my own childhood, especially from when I was very small. The way people talked and thought about things then.
I should be going to bed, haven't slept very well in a while. But I have a sense of the days passing by too quickly and there are things I should be doing, things I should have already done. Maybe that's why I can't sleep well.
