It's Been A Wait

A long time ago I wrote a little ditty about my favorite book. The Time Travelers Wife. I love this book so much. After I read it I told everyone I knew to read it. I judged people on whether they liked it or not. Like it, I'll be your friend. Don't like it, beat it. Thank God my Mom loved it. I wasn't ready to let her go.

Actually quite a few people just didn't get it. Or they would say they couldn't get into it. Seriously then, please put the book down. Get off the babysitter Joel. I didn't want to have to explain to people why I loved this book so much. For a long time I didn't even understand what the draw was for me. Now I do.

Tonight my friend Lisa and I are going to see the movie together. I'm a little anxious cause if it was anything like that debacle of the movie version of the book Twilight I am going to throw a fit right in the theater. If I like the book I want to love the movie, like Shawshank. I am crossing my fingers and praying to the Sun that it's good. I don't expect great. I just don't want to have to stamp my feet and throw stuff in the theater. Although Lisa is usually entertained by me so I don't think I'd lose a friend. And there is always that after movie cocktail to look forward to no matter what. Silver lining, I hope I don't need it for this one.

Fingers crossed.

Guess I need to dust off my silver glove and "don't you ever come around here."

(Sniff. Sniff.) Parting is such sweet sorrow.

Yeah right! Can't get rid of me that easily. Besides, I totally agree with Shawshank Redemption.

Wow, that was awkward said...

You can sit still long enough to read?

I FINALLY got this book! I have 2 other books to read before I can start it though...and I won't see the movie until I read it, of course. The movies are almost NEVER as good as the book, but I hope this one lives up to your expectations! Have fun!
