New Moon

You know, I really hate going to theaters that I'm not very familiar with.  I usually go to Cinemark when I go to the movies but being that everything was sold out for New Moon we found tickets at another theater that wasn't as popular. 

I wasn't planning to go see New Moon the week it came out.  I wanted to wait 'till the crowd and fans died out a bit before going to watch it myself, but my boyfriend's aunt, which I consider her my aunt as well, called me in reply to a message I had sent.  Since my aunt and I love to go shopping on Saturdays I had texted early to ask if she wanted to go to the Mall with me.  So she calls back:

Tia Dani: "I can't go shopping because we're going to go the movies."

Grace: "Oh... you are going to the movies?" I was starting to feel a little sad because I had been looking forward to hanging out with her.

Tia Dani: "No, WE are going to the movies."

Grace: "Me too?"

Tia Dani: "Yes! we got tickets to the 3 o'clock New Moon showing."  To clarify, that was 3 p.m. not a.m.

Of course got excited because 1. I love to go the movies.  2.  I love hanging out with Tia Dani and her kids.  3.  I really wanted to see New Moon.  So I told her I would go and meet her at the theater after my hair appointment.  After getting my hair trimmed I speeded my way  to the theater because I was already 30 minutes late (thank goodness they were saving my seat).  When I entered the theater, I don't know if it was because I was at an unfamiliar setting but my eyes took forever to adjust to the dark.  For the life of me I could not see squat. zip. nada.

"Tia, I can't see anything..."  I whispered.

Tia Dani tried to guide me by taking my hand but I still stumbled up the stairs to my seat.  And then, she let my hand go. And I was lost...  I still couldn't see...  I didn't know where I was supposed to sit.  So in my struggle to get to my seat (wherever that was) I have no idea but I touched something or someone.  I thought maybe I had grabbed the seat or my aunt's shoulder or one of our other friends.  I squinted trying real hard to get a good look and I saw a gray patch of hair! Oooops! Wrong person!  I accidentally touched an older man's head!  Of course, I apologized as I tried real hard to hold my laughter in.  Finally, after what seemed the longest minutes of my life I was able to get to my seat.  Yeah, please call me graceful.

I really enjoyed New Moon although some of the scenes looked a little fake and the acting was a little rusty in some parts.  Nevertheless, I loved it.  The books will always be better than the movies in my opinion.  For those who haven't read the books, I would advice you read them after you see the movies and not before; you'll enjoy it more that way.


  1. Oh no- did you ever figure out what happened in the movie theatre? I LOVED New Moon- I'm totally not a Twihard, but I loved the plot and action.. and Taylor's abs. :D

  2. Hehehehe! Indeed, his abs do look appealing. LoL. You know I can't wait for when they make "Breaking Dawn". :)
