Paper Chain Countdown

I only wish I could claim credit for this photo. Le sigh; I lack the vision.

2 weeks, folks. 2 weeks. As we speak, Annie has put her children to work making a paper chain counting down to the big day. As she says, they don't care what it's for.

So, this movie represents a pretty big departure from the story I know. Though I hadn't read the previous books, I had a pretty good idea where the story was heading. From here on in however, I'm sailing in uncharted waters. My understanding is that one (one might say the) major conflict gets solved pretty early in the story, so I'm interested in seeing what happens after that (and when I say interested, I mean jazzed).

Oh, and for the record, if anyone tells me ANYTHING about it, so help me, you will be the recipient of one icy, icy stare.

I like to go in fresh--no previews (because has anyone else noticed that previews these days are pretty much just mini movies. i don't mind though, it saves me from ever having to see an Amanda Seyfried movie. ever), no interviews, no People magazine exclusives--nothing. This makes for the ideal movie watching experience.

Also important for ideal movie watching experience: themed t-shirts, candy (large quantities), coke (ditto), and like-minded friends.

2 weeks.

  2. I'm kind of freaking out about it. I think I'm most excited to see what Lee Pace is doing in the movies now.

    no but seriously, when I see a preview, I can't breath.

  3. I love that you are Annie's friend, and so, by osmosis you are mine. Can't wait to see you and your little "joybell"*.
