Just got back from the “Eclipse” midnight showing and was honestly a little disappointed that the crowd was so tame. I was anticipating a mob of teenagers ready to scream/faint at the sight of the vampire’s (or werewolf, if you’re into that kind of thing) dreamy, sparkly face, but our theater wasn’t even full. I feel like I didn’t get the full experience.

There were some good times, though. Like when the entire crowd collectively gasped at the sight of Taylor Lautner’s face. Or this:

Edward: Marry me.
Bella: Not yet.
Girl sitting right behind me: WHAT?!

Enough teen angst to last me all year!

I had lunch with my dear friend Mrs. Light on Friday. We hadn’t seen each other in a couple of years, I think, and had a lovely three-hour lunch catching up and remember some of the good ol’ times of our CHS band days. You’re all going to be really jealous when you see what she got me for graduation:

If you’re not familiar with the Baby-Sitters Club, I’m sorry. It truly helped define my childhood — so much so, in fact, that I had to admit to Mrs. Light that I’d already purchased and read this book (a prequel to the series, released earlier this year). It was initially difficult to stick with the story, as it’s, ahem, a little below my current reading level, but I was genuinely into it after about four chapters. I was transported back to my elementary/middle school years, reading about Kristy the tomboy, Mary Anne’s pigtails, Claudia’s crazy outfits and Stacey from NYC. Sweet, sweet nostalgia.

One of my greatest regrets in life is giving away all my BSC books after I (stupidly) thought I had outgrown them. Seriously.

A snapshot of my cell phone activity today:

Mom texting me to ask if I had borrowed her vacuum
Josh calling at 7:52 in the morning to ask if I could make myself available for a chat at noon
Noble calling to ask if I’d rather have a non-frosted shot glass from New Mexico or a frosted shot glass from somewhere else (I have a small collection of the frosted ones from different states)
Josh texting to ask if I had found him a funny hat/visor with a giraffe on it

My friend Kiera had a fab pair of sunglasses at DJNF training: they were covered in random text. The newspaper geek in me fell in love with them, and one of my first tasks upon returning home was to look for something similar on ebay. I love ebay.

One shipment from Thailand later, these are all mine:

The best part? They were only $8. I’ve found that cheap sunglasses usually work best for me because I tend to break and/or lose them. (:
