I Was 14 Again and a Sidebar

For the most part I consider myself mature for my age. At 32, I work full time, carry a mortgage, am in a serious relationship, and put money away in my savings account. Real adult.

However, last night I regressed to my 14 year old self with braces and crisply crimped bad hair. Why? The New Kids on the Block concert. Penny and I went and had a BLAST!!!

They are AMAZING live and so hot. The opening acts were a little suspect, but I think it meant to highlight the awesomeness that are the NKOTB. I mean, I really felt all tingly inside when they first came out and when Penny and I jumped out of our seats and started singing and dancing along with the songs, I realized that I am just faking the funk with all my adult business, and deep down inside I am still a perpetual 14 year old. Could be worse. :P

P.S.: I am totally buying the Property of Donnie shirt for myself from their website.


Now for the sidebar:

I have been reading the Twilight series, and have seen the trailers for the movies, and would like to go on record as saying that I think the movie will suck. It will never reach the levels of awesomeness that HP did, and I'm a little sad about that.

Shocker, I know. Hear me out:

While the story of the book would make an excellent movie, from the previews, I don't think that they are respecting the nature of the book. I don't think that the actors playing Bella and Edward display any sort of chemistry together onscreen and I also think that their acting seems stilted.

We will see on 11/21. I hope I'm wrong, but the vividness of the story that I have in my mind is NOT what I see in that trailer. I mean, I am still going to see the movie, but that is neither here nor there. Make it happen Twilight people. Prove me wrong!

I agree about the movie... The trailers are so so... I'll still go see it.

Just started #4!

I'm going to see the movie for sure but no matter what it will never measure up to how I've pictured it in my mind.

I totally agree about the actors in the Twilight trailors. It sounds like they are just reading from the book. Doesn't bode well.

I'm so glad to hear that everyone feels the same.

Yeah, Twilight the movie wont be epic like Harry Potter! But it will feed another part of my vampire mania, lol. I have read the twilight series...I am hooked on HBO's True blood...I'm making everyone in my family be vampires for Halloween this year...and it just wouldn't be right to miss Twilight in theaters!

Plus I think that Cedrick Diggory is hot. And that is good enough for me. :D

i'm going to like it anyways, but i do agree. movies never live up to the hype of books. although in my opinion, the hp movies were better than the books.

i think the acting is fine on Edwards side, as i like his acting ability. i havent seen her since panic room, so i don't really know what she can do.

i'll still buy it on dvd and watch it nonstop:)
