Twilight Movie

Okay, so the thing is, I'm super excited to see it. Sorta. Kinda. I mean, as long as it doesn't suck. Which right now you're probably asking, "But MomBabe? Why would it suck?" To which I would answer, "Umm, I don't know. Probably because every time I read a book and THEN see the movie, it totally blows."

No seriously. Congo the book? Scary and awesome. The movie? Ultimate. Suckage. (Actually, a lot of Crichton's adaptations have been REALLY BAD. Sphere. Eaters of the Dead (film version was The 13th Warrior). The Andromeda Stain. bad. all of them. really, really, bad.)

The Descent - book version - super scary and awesome. The movie? Shared the name and that's about it.

Then of course we have to include The Scarlett Letter and Dracula. and Eragon was awful. the DaVinci Code was kinda, well, LAME.

so of course, I'm totally worried that I'll see Twilight and then have to stab my eyeballs out. (Which I'm kinda fond of. Seeing and such.)

And don't think I haven't already noticed discrepancies. Oh no, DON'T THINK I HAVEN'T NOTICED.

For one, Laurent is supposed to be, well, ummm, white. Not trying to ruffle feathers but there's a pretty thorough description of the guy and he doesn't look like this.

Also, I'm concerned about the whole Jacob Black thing. No really, I am.

And so I sit and fret and ponder about whether or not I should see the movie. Yes, I am officially MORE CONCERNED WITH TWILIGHT THAN THE PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION.

Don't look so shocked. You know you feel the same way.

Do you think I should be worried? Are YOU worried? I'm worried.

worried. WoRrIeD. worried.

P.S. Worried is a funny word.

P.P.S. Number of times I said worried - 9

P.P.P.S. I think I need a thesauraus.
