Well, went to see twilight the movie on Friday 11/21/08 and I thought it was great. Yes, there were things in the movie that weren't in the book and things that were in the book that weren't in the movie but no adaptation is ever as good as the book so I was very happy with the movie. I plan on going to see it again because I was too close to the screen the first time. I also plan on buying the DVD as soon as it comes out. I am still trying to figure out how to do my pendants for the book without copyright infringement....just haven't figured anything out yet. Well, that is not completely true, I do have a flameheart with the name Cullen in it on one of my pendants and I could do one for Edward, Bella, Jacob, so forth. Just wish I could come up with a picture though that would convey the movie that was not copyrighted. Oh well, something will come to me or the graphic artist that I have asked to work on it. When she figures it out I will be happy and she will be able to make some money....LOL.
The production company announced the next day that they "will" be making the next book in the series into a movie....New Moon. I can't wait......I love this series!! They made their investment back on the movie twice over just this weekend. They spent $37 million to make the movie and they made $70.4 million just over this weekend!! They had a very small budget because they are an indie film maker and they had never had a blockbuster before....this is only their 6th film so I think they did fantastic, all things considered, and I believe they will do even better on the next one. The stars have already signed on for the sequel.
I actually had to work today because we are in training and will be missing Thursday and Friday. It wasn't too bad though, the instructor kept us busy so the day went by fast but hated getting up that early on a Sunday!!
Well, I guess we will start looking at Christmas things next week. Happy Thanksgiving everyone!!

I recently went job hunting because I was not happy with the changes that were going on at my work. I had already been told that come the first of the year, because of being bought by another company, that I was going to lose my Assistant Supervisor title and I had already lost the actual job. They weren't going to take my pay away but my whole point of the promotion in the first place was to move up and they were making it clear that was not happening. I was not the only one they did that to though, all of the Assistant Supervisors lost their job and will lose the title in January. Well, went out and found another job, pays slightly less but considering my job at old company and the one at new company it should have been a lot less....hmmmm.
Anyway, start the new job Monday and it will be 5 days a week for the 6 weeks of training and then I go to 4 on and 3 off....Woo Hoo!!!! I love being in training, it is always so easy!! If I could make money by being in school constantly I definitely would. Yes, I know some people actually do that by changing their major before they finish, but I hate not finishing something so, that is not an option for me.....LOL.
So, what do we have for Thanksgiving Shops on etsy....
Well, today is my birthday....age? what's age? LOL. Anyway, my oldest daughter (digital altered art is of her) and her boyfriend and her oldest daughter took me to dinner last night for my birthday. They took me to Mickey Mantles in the city. OMG!!! They kept telling me not to look at the prices but.....it was sooooo expensive. The dinners come with nothing but the meat/seafood and the lowest one I saw was 29.95!!! If you want potatoes, vegetables, etc. then it costs extra, anywhere from 5.95 for the baked potato on up, the stuffed mushroom appetizer was 10.95. I am just not used to spending so much for one dinner, but I did have a good time and I finally ignored the prices and got what I wanted, I figured this was a one time indulgence that I get to have without having to pay for it myself....LOL.
So, let's see what I can find for Thanksgiving today on etsy.....
OMG I am sooooo sorry I have been so lax in my blog! I started reading the book twilight and couldn't stop, ended up reading all four books and then went to Stephanie Meyer's website and read the rough draft of book 5. I LOVE this series and now I found out the movie for the first book twilight is coming out this month.... 11/21/08, I can hardly wait and I don't usually go see movies I just wait for them to come out on DVD, not this one though!!!! I added the movie trailer above this post...hope you like it. Now, back to work.
I made my first and second sale. First was on 10/23/08 and the second one was on 11/01/08. I was so excited!!! I am still on cloud nine about them. I am going to go surf etsy now and see if I can find those Thanksgiving sites I promised. Hold on, be right back......LOL.
