Howie's Home!

Well, back to us at least. He hasn't been adopted yet so no "home" for him yet. He was thin to begin with but now he's even thinner because he didn't eat at the vet for two days. He's gaggy and coughy because of the huge seroma (a fluid filled lump the doctor says will go away on its own) on his throat. But overall, he seem pretty happy to be back. He's curled up next to me under a blanket right now. He's such a sweetie. Thanks for all the well wishes.

Also, today I am going to see Twilight with my mom and little sister. Yes, we are all in love with a fictional story and fictional characters. I'm trying to keep an open mind about the movie. I know that there is no way that it's going to be anywhere close to as good as the book. And they're probably going to change things around and omit stuff that I think needs to be in there. But, I am hoping that I still enjoy the movie. It's been awhile since I read it so at least all of the details aren't completely fresh in my mind.

Have any of you seen the movie? Like, love it, hate it? Have you read the books? Are you as in love as I am? Haha! Have a great Sunday everyone!

Yaaay for Howie. So glad he is back with you guys for some much needed spoiling and love.

Have not read the book or seen the movie, but the main character is my friend's daughter so I am hoping it does as well as it seems it might. Enjoy. I hear, if anything, it's entertaining.

I saw it Friday and plan on going again. I think you need to see it twice. Friday, I was just so excited to see how it played out that I probably missed alot. It's true to the book for the most part. I think a lot of people went into the movie thinking it would be exactly like the book and were disappointed. But Edward is hot and I wouldn't mind if he turned me into a vampire.
I'm glad Howie is back :)

Yea for Howie being home! I hope he has a speedy recovery. Have fun at the movie.

How are you feeling?

(I have a somewhat pregnancy-related verification word..."ankles." Swollen ankles? I don't think that comes until later.)

Glad to hear the puppy is okay. I want to know what the hell is happening to the neighbor's dogs!?

So how was Twilight? I'm VERY biased against it. I haven't read the book, but mostly because of what people have told me about it. The impression I get is - romance novel for 13-year old girls. Nothing wrong with that... just not my ball of wax.

We both read many books from that genre so I'd be interested to see your take on it.
