Bitten

A couple of new obsessions to speak about.

#1. My blog has been looking so BLAH!! next to everyone else who has all these customized skins and title bars, etc. It all looks so pretty. So I asked Christa, "Hey what's up girl? How the heck do I do that?" (well, not exactly in those words). And then she told me. And then I checked it out. And then I TOTALLY messed everything up. And then I thought it was certain "death" for my current blog because I had somehow messed things up so badly. And then I started to cry (well, almost). But then I got my head on straight ahead. And here I am. I decided I needed some colour. What do you think?

#2. I went to Deer Lake the other day. Went into Lawtons Drug Store. I sometimes look at the book/magazine rack just to browse, read the back of the covers, flip through to check out the latest gossip in celeb world. I never buy any of them. The store clerks hate me, I'm certain. But I saw a book that immediately caught my eye. "Twilight". Read the back. Said to Jamie, "I'm getting this!' and he looked at me, "Like when did you start actually buying books?". And then I read the whole thing in less than 24 hours. Loved it! For those of you who started out with me in the "Buffy" years, you know I have this weird vampire obsession thing. I know, I know...but don't we all have some kind of strange psychotic tendencies sometimes?

And that all leads me into my next obsession...

#3. I found out "Twilight" has been made into a movie and is coming to theatres this month!!! Can we all say "YAY!!!!" I'm so excited! (Now if only I had a theatre closer than over an hour away!)

Here's the trailer from YouTube

And here's the book review from Chapters/Indigo.

Enjoy!

#4. Since Christa mentioned me on her blog, I am now obsessed with trying to come up with some good posts to make up for my lack of decent storytelling. Sorry, my brain is muddled so please have some patience with me.

Now I want a new background. Have to figure out how. I may have to check that book out too-I have an obsession with witches.

Sorry everyone, just figured out that the links I posted to check out "twilight" via YouTube and Chapters...well, I did something wrong...so it's not working. You could always just google if you're interested :)
