Girls' Afternoon Out...

Being a high school teacher, I sometimes get sucked into reading books that my students are reading. Case in point, the "Twilight" series. Last year one of my students became my "supplier" bringing me a book as I finished each one. Fortunately, they are an easy read (otherwise I wouldn't have wasted my time because of my brain injury). As I read them, I found that I preferred one character over another, Jacob. I was totally turned off by Edward, he was too controlling, too overprotective, telling Bella who she could be friends with, where she wasn't allowed to go, etc. Jacob reminded me of Ryan. They both wear their hearts on their sleeves.

Anyway, if you're not a teenage girl, or the mother of a teenage girl, the movie, "New Moon" came out on Friday. It's the second book and second movie of the "Twilight" series. A group of ladies from work arranged to go see the movie on Sunday, and I went with. It was the first movie I'd been to since "Prince Caspian". Needless to say, I was excited. It was nice to get out of the house, and be out with friends. Plus, I enjoyed the movie, as it was more about Jacob than about Edward.

Was it a cheesy love story? Yes. Was there action? Yes. Was the acting better than it was in the first movie? Yes. Does Ryan want to see it now? Yes.

Go Team Jacob!


  1. Dad said he would take me! and yes Go Team Jacob! Love, MOM

  2. Does Ryan know that it is not a cheerleading movie. If you want to see a real vampire and werewolf movie watch the Underworld movies not those twilight hot pile of steaming garbage--Bill

  3. I've been on the fence about this one. I saw Twilight and read the book. I haven't read New Moon and I haven't seen the movie. I was ready to until I saw the trailer. Now I'm not so sure......I definitely liked Jacob better even in the first movie.

  4. If I was a teenage girl, I'd be pining for jacob--haven't finished twilight or seen the movie, but the actor is cuter :)
