but actually a little bit better! Yes, it is...Australia! (You thought I was going to say Twilight, didn't you? I'll talk about that in a minute.) If you know about my old obsession with Gone with the Wind, you know that it takes a lot for me to admit that something is better than that lovely old costume epic. But Australia really takes the cake. It's just a few minutes short of 3 hours and yet, an hour into the movie, I looked at my watch and was surprised that it had already been an hour. It moves really fast, the story is enjoyable, and Hugh Jackman is yummy, yummier even than TSH (but don't tell him that!). I don't want to tell you all too much about it, but go see it! Go see it. Go see it. Then we can talk about it!
Okay, this post was going to be titled "Twilight--So nice, I had to see it twice" but then I saw Australia and I had to start with it. But I totally loved Twlight. And it wasn't just because I was crazy with fatigue because it was 12 o'clock in the AM and it was almost 24 hours since I had woken up in the morning before I crawled back into bed for a long 3 1/2 hour sleep. It was so awesome! I laughed, I cried, I was on the edge of my seat! And then I told Amy that I wanted to go see it again, so we went and saw it yesterday. And I loved it just as much the second time. And I want to see it again. (Hey, thanks to my parents for watching my boys Friday and Saturday when I went to the movies with Amy and Tavia. I so owe you for it.)
Well, Thanksgiving weekend is now almost over. I actually got the boys' room and the front room cleaned and vacuumed this weekend, so I'm grateful for that. And almost all of my Christmas shopping is already done. Rock on! *head banging*
I hope you all have had a wonderful weekend and I hope you'll go see my two new favorite movies.
