"Wow, he does look like he's in pain!"

(a.k.a. We watched Twilight)

So Jeremy and I sat down to watch Twilight on Wednesday. More specifically, we were planning to watch a movie. I asked him what we had on Netflix. He said "Well, Twilight, and ..." And I didn't let him finish. :) Because for as cheesy as I thought the book was, I had to watch the train wreck that was the movie. (I also have to read New Moon before that movie comes out, so we can see it in the theater.)

And let me tell you. Serious train wreck. It was so bad, it kept me marginally entertained. Mostly, it was the acting that was just atrocious. I mean, I like the fact that they didn't cast any big name Hollywood stars in the movie. But at the same time, I half suspect that any big name Hollywood stars who read the script would have backed away, possibly using a cross to defend themselves.

I have to say that the best acting probably came from the guy who played Jasper, because as soon as one of the other characters said "The one who always looks like he's in pain is Jasper," I responded with "Wow, he does look like he's in pain!" Kudos to him for that magnificent acting feat. :) I wonder if he actually managed to hurt himself to make him more convincing? :)

And that's about as close as we come to End of the Work Week Wisdom this week. Short version: watch Twilight if you like laughing at bad acting. It's spectacular. :)


And in other news of the shameless plug variety, I'm offering free shipping on all of my hats until the end of August. Yeah, I know it's way too early to even think about winter wear, but if you buy now, you can get a head start on the weather AND save a bit of cash. :)
