The Time Traveler's Wife Movie


I just saw the trailer for the movie, coming out on August 14th. I absolutely adored this book and can not wait - check it out:

Here's take two of what this book did to me:

I am sitting at the kitchen table trying desperately to finish "The Time Traveler's Wife" before book club tonight. Work is on hold after a couple of hours, and the Wii is babysitting my monsters for the moment.

Dry, shaken sobs start to rack through me as I near the end of the book. I know what's going to happen. It even tells you it's going to happen. But as the words in front of me take shape in my mind, in my heart...

I can't help but feel like I KNOW these people. They're not characters in a book anymore, they're people you've gotten to know in the last 500 pages. I've been talking to them silently in my head as I've been catching up with them, laughing out loud, causing hubby to take a curious peek at me.

Silly, silly girl. It's just a book. What are you crying for? I laugh at myself, at the sight of me. At the idea of it. I need to break up these emotions, take the edge off... and stuff my face with fries to keep my tears at bay.

Now I really AM a sight to see.

I imagine one of my sons hopping in to the kitchen, ready for lunch... stopping in his tracks and apprehensively coming to my side to ask, "Why are you crying, Mom?"

Because of a book?

"Because your Mom is a dork. That's all."

(sigh) But I ain't ashamed. ;)

Any other book lovers out there?

Win the Backing of Peter Facinelli's Twilight Chair

If you're already a part of Twitterville, then you've already heard about the bet between Peter Facinelli and Robert DeFranco.

With the deadline looming in, midnight on Friday, June 19th, Peter is still short of his goal to gain 500,000 followers.

If he loses, he has to give up the backing of his director's chair from Twilight to Rob.

But if he wins... Rob has to dance down Hollywood Blvd - wearing a bikini - while singing Beyonce's "All The Single Ladies," and holding a sign saying "Twitter Me".

Not to mention, one lucky follower will win the backing of his Twilight chair. Hear it straight from Peter himself:

And follow him at @peterfacinelli - let's make sure one of us gets that chair instead of Rob. And seeing Rob do his thang on Hollywood will SURE be a sight.

Who else is following? :)

Michael Trevino on The Mentalist

Do you guys watch The Mentalist? I friggin' LOVE that show - Patrick Jane cracks me up. Not to mention, Simon Baker is pretty easy on the eyes.

I've told Hubz I'd go for Simon any day ;)

Thank gawd for Billy Burke and Simon Baker, coz I can't keep oogling my fantasy boy toys, can I? But catching up on my DVR last night, that damned Michael Trevino just had to go and make a guest appearance on The Mentalist, didn't he?

See? He's already helping me curb my OCD. Okay... well maybe just a lil' bit. ;)

Twilight Interview - Raw Footage

I don't get a chance to peruse cyber space very much for footage on our favorite vampires, so lucky for me that Twilight_4000 sent me this video.

I love just watching how they interact with each other - you can see how much they genuinely enjoy each other's company. But don't take my word for it... check it out for yourself. ;)

What's your favorite part? I personally love the bit when they're talking about snuggies and onesies. Even IF they hopped off on a bunny trail - I thought it was too cute! :)

Billy Burke with the Power of Attorney

There's only so many shows I can keep up with. One of them is "The Closer."

Imagine my surprise to find out our own Billy Burke showed up on the show as a smooth-talking lawyer named Philip Stroh.

Hubz saw his name come up as the show started. "Hey - isn't that your boyfriend?"

It cracks me up that even though he's never read the book, never watched the movie - he can still recognize the names of my favorite Twilight celebs.

Of course, it probably doesn't help that I have all of their photos perched up on the fireplace mantle in my office. ;)

Click here to check out Billy's wicked performance in "The Closer - Power of Attorney."

Twilight in Photos and The Hillywood Show

Did I mention that I also took photos with Mike Welch? And Jerad, Lead Guitarist for Jackson's band 100 Monkeys?

Check out the pics here and TELL ME Jerad isn't a cutie?!

It has taken me all week to try and come down from my high from last week. I've been trying not to look at the pics or watch the videos coz if I do... it starts all over again!

One thing I can't help - is this video they showed at the con. I'm not usually a fan of parodies - but this one is helluva cute. They stayed in character ALL weekend - and at the Vampire Ball, even taught everyone the dance from the video. It was awesome. I got lucky and got a pic with the cast, too!
