New Moon* tonight, and

Going to Alabama with David tomorrow afternoon! We had been planning to drive, of course, but then his mother called yesterday morning and said she'd found cheap-ish plane tickets and wanted to fly us down there. I guess I shouldn't have been so surprised to hear that from such a generous woman. I tried to talk her out of it, but she bought them, and we're flying out at 4pm. I'm hoping it'll go well. I mean, David's mom and grandparents are awesome, I think they're great, but he and I have both been a little down lately, and that's always hard for me to handle. So we'll see. We're flying back up on Tuesday and heading toward our own respective family Thanksgiving celebrations.

*New Moon: I am pretty excited and slightly ashamed. Kelly, Maggie, Chloe, Taylor, and Kelly's and my two mentees, China and Christina, are going to the 11 pm showing tonight. Let's not even get into how stupid it was for me to invite a 15 year old who lives about 35 minutes from me and God knows how far from the theater to a movie that won't end until at least 1 am. I just wasn't thinking. But hopefully it'll go well and I won't get into a car accident on my way home at 3 am or whatever.

Other movies I want to see that are out now or will be shortly: Precious; Pirate Radio, Men Who Stare At Goats. I feel like there were others, but I have no idea what they were. David is determined to get me to see Big Trouble In Little China. I cannot wait until Voyage of the Dawn Treader comes out, but that won't be for a while. (Oh, woe to me.)


  1. omg! so glad you're flying and not driving!! that's insanely nice of her... don't forget about you time while you're there!

    haha i hope new moon is good! i've had some major twilight cravings recently (i'm embarrassed to say..) and yes, don't get into a wreck while you're driving home.

    i also want to see precious and men who stare at goats... i like the story in pirate radio but it looks like love actually on a ship. or like, a million love stories you don't really care about obfuscating a good plot. sigh. hopefully i'm wrong though! i'm still dying to see where the wild things are, ponya, cloudy with a chance of meatballs... and a bunch of others i've missed. =S.

    i'm cooking dessert, cranberry sauce, and mashed potatoes for thanksgiving dinner!! /scared and excited.

    ummm i miss you and eat my delicious cakeballs! if you enjoy i will send out a new thanksgiving batch monday-ish. (and one will go to kelly too of course ;))

  2. omg also. 4 pm your time is 1 pm my time which means you cant help me shopping tomorrow
