Hola! I'm a long time craft-admirer and I've decided to give crafting a go myself! I'm currently learning how to knit. Pretty bright colours and glitter make me smile. I'm a total cuteness monster. Add me if you like, I love friends!

Hi Sarah no problem! but midterms? in october? that sucks! ok- have you seen all the stuff they have released from twilight movie (17 days left!!!!!)? if not watch them!!! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dNODWQa9mC0 and http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6TRCq5K2jNc i just want to see if you notice something extremely wrong with what bella wears during the make-out scene. i can't finish this but watch them if you haven't yet and if you did- tell me what you think!!!

Hey Esme! Sorry for the late reply - I had midterms last week *shudders* How did your Halloween party go? Did you still dress up as the tooth fairy?
I don't know why they under-use Rupert Grint (isn't that a fabulous name?) so much. He has a HUGE role in the books as Harry's best friend, even more so than Hermione does. But they always render him useless in the movies. Even on magazine covers of the trio, there are times when it's only Daniel and Emma on the cover and Rupert can only be seen inside the magazine. That REALLY bugs me.
The woman who plays Mrs. Weasley is PERFECT. She IS Mrs. Weasley, I love her too. Was the moving about driving? It had driving in the title... I forget the name, I wanted to see it but missed it in the theatres.
Emma's hair is REALLY ANNOYING. In the first movie it was perfectly bushy and adorable, but since the 2nd film they decided to go for more "pretty" than bushy. Making her hair wavy is NOT bushy!! Why couldn't they dork her up a bit? Hermione is supposed to be the ultimate nerd, not a model!!
I'm really curious to see how Bonnie Wright fares in the movies too, now that she has a bigger role. Isn't it weird that she's had that role earmarked for her since 2001 when she was only like 9 or 10, but she's never actually been in the movies, save for a few scenes in CoS? They could have made a huge casting mistake! For all we and the directors know, she could be horrible as Harry's love interest, and there's nothing they can do about it since they cast her 8 years ago. It's also going to be totally weird seeing Harry and Ginny kiss on screen... I just really can't imagine it. I keep thinking of that awkward Cho/Harry kiss and cringing lol!

I totally know what you mean about rupert grint!!! he had like what? like three lines in the fifth movie. he was in this other movie...ooh i forgot owhat the name was, with the actress who played mrs. weasley(i LOVE her, did you see her in Mama Mia???) and he is actually a not so terrible actor. Emma watson- annoys me. 1. her hair is not bushy enough 2. she doesn't carry or read enough books (tho that may be the director's fault) and 3. she calls ron ronald!! don't even get me started on daniel radcliffe, though he was pretty good in the movie my boy jack (very depressing but very good, especially if you need a good cry) i'm really curious to see how bonnie wright (ginnie) is going to turn our b/c she's never really had any lines so far and she'll really come into the story (wink wink)
Everyone else is pretty good though - I wish they gave rupert grint more screen time, I think he has a lot more potential. Emma is a bit of an over-actor lol, expecially when she's playing "upset Hermione" (which is most of the time these days). And Daniel's just a dork. He has that dorky vibe lol.

the character cho annoyed me in the book too. like at madam puddyfoots i really just wanted to like, shake her at tell her to get over herself! alan rickman i think is one of the only actors in movies based on books who completely does the character justice. it's like j.k rowling was writing the part for him and you're right, ever since like the 3rd one they've been using him less and less. also michael gambon is about the worst actor to portray a book character ever (but we haven't seen twilight yet)! the way he performs is an insult to richard harris and the real albus wolfericke percival brian dumbledore's memeory! (i may have forgotten some of his names) when he took over after the 1st guy died, he said he was going to make the part his own, but all he did was sabotage dumbledore! yea that part sucks but the other part i don't like is in the 4th when dumbledore grabs harry and yells at himm "did you put your name in that goblet?!?!?!" i saw the picture- it was really funny. i have to send you this hilarious twilight parody on youtube but not right now-i'm suppose to be righting an essay...oops Happy

i totally will upload a pic! yea- the hp scene was really awkward but that may have been what it was like in the book (i wouldn't know) but they weren't even touching. i don't have that much experience in that department but it seems unlikely that all that is touching is your lips in real life. umbridge was FANTASTIC! she is such a good actor because i was convince no one would be able to do her justice. she is in this other movie called vera drake that i am dying to see. alan rickman and richard geer are my idols! even thought they are both really old i think they are hot!!! none of your friend read it?? that totally sucks, and really surprises me. i'm going to see it with my book club the saturday it comes out because my friend i was going to see it with suddenly decided that she will not see it b/c it will ruin the book. what do you think about the split of the 7th movie? sirius's death was a little anti-climactic i thought but maybe they will do dumbledore betterHappy

tooth fairy!!! that is what i will be!!!!! thanks so much!!!!!!!!! yea nikki whats-her-name is really pretty-WHEN SHE HAS BROWN HAIR!!!! they should have a real blond to do it. yea i'm really not a big fan of the hp movies. i think the 5th one was the best though. it seems like whether you loved the 5th or you hated it, when i talk to ppl who saw it. what do you think? thanks thanks thanks for the costume help- you have saved my life!!

you are absolutely right....about everything!!! yea i showed the trailer to my younger brother (bad idea) and we agreed that it may have been the corniest music for a trailer ever. i'm sure catherine hardewicke is doing her very best with the movie but i don't think she has enough experience, she doirected like what 2 movies. and what on earth is with robert pattinson's stubble?!?! i know that they would never in a million years be able to get an edward hot enough but you'd think the least they could do is give him a good shave. however i must admit that the whole scene with the "i just want to try one thing" was extremely sexy, no matter how unrealistic it was to the book. i'm pretty sure alice and jasper will be semi-good tho. what do you think?

you know i didn't even really consider that until now. i could never put my finger on what was wrong and you're absolutely right. it's like all they every talked about in eclipse and breaking dawn was "ooh lets have sex" "no bella i'll hurt you" and did you notice that bella and edward never really talked about anything. all they ever said to each other was how much they loved each other, which is completely unrealistic b/c how on earth can you form such a strong relationship on absolutely no conversation?! when i read the 7th book i cried to and my brothers were making fun of me so much. it was so funny because in the 5th or 6th book i remember getting really upset when fang (hagrid's dog) was caught in hagrid's burning house, and it was like right before dumbledore dies (o so it must have been the 6th) did you see the latest trailer for twilight, or are you not into the whole movie thing??

wow omg we are totally on the same wavelength!!! i know exactly what you mean about the anticlimactic-ness of the ending....it was like...what? thats it?!?! i read on her website that she said "I'm not the kind of person who writes a Hamlet ending." well some of us WANT a hamlet ending! i try to explain stephenie meyer to my friends who haven't read the books and its hard, it's like--she writes great stories but isn't that great of a writer. i'd have to say the 3rd or 7th books are a tie for my favorite (sirius <3) be careful when you read the host, it's a little slow in the beginning but stick with it, it'll pick up.

that's so fun that you're re-reading hp, i just finished the 5th one over again. i thought breaking dawn was.....not really up to par with stephenie meyer's other books. i guess it was ok, but what on earth was with the name renesmee?! i am huge fan of the first three though so it was very disappointing. you?

Thanks for your lovely comment. I have watched Kinky boots loads of times, but don't know anyone else who has, until now. It's a great film and the fact that it is based on the real factory makes it even better.

I am pleased you like my recipes, I made the banana loaf yesterdey and it has all gone! I keep trying to upload some meals, but always seem to be in a hurry around dinner time and forget to time or photo what I am making.

There is always something to do here, I am having a lot of fun Happy
