Gone to the USA!

I shouldn't be on here right now.
I have to get up at 6 to catch a flight in time in the morning.
But oh well. It happens this way :/

I'm going to America for 5 weeks!!
This time tomorrow I'll be in New York :)

It's Eclipse time!!

So I went to see Eclipse with the lovely Emma Myers today. It's our tradition.
We go to see the twilight films on the day they come out. And we sit in the same seats. And we throw popcorn.
It's an amazing tradition.

I usually have to watch the film twice before I can form a proper opinion. The first time, I'm just comparing it to the book and picking holes in it to laugh about.
It's quite fun.

So I'm not quite sure about it as a film. But as a companion to the book?
Well they missed a lot out. And the special parts from the book they didn't miss out? Well, they weren't explained very well. They sort of ended up more as a special part for those who have read it that others wouldn't exactly understand...

But there's a lot to laugh at. There always seems to be. Unintentional funny.
It's usually at how ridiculously awful Robert Pattinson's acting is, especially with Kristen Stewart's ridiculous performance alongside it.
I'll say one thing, the cinema would most definitely have hated us by the end, after we burst out laughing at random moments.

At least Taylor Lautener was looking good :)
(or TLautz as... well no one calls him. I made it up as a compliment to RPattz and KStew ;) )
Though the dramatic music and slow motion as he made his entrance was a little too much...

Like I said, lots of funny

Where's the Cougar in Cougar town?

So a few days ago I was just browsing the internet, trying to find something fun to watch...

And I found "Cougar Town".
It's a comedy with Courteny Cox as the lead.
Produced by Coquette Productions - her and her husband's company. (It's the Co from Courteney and the quette from David ;) )
It's a funny word xD

So I decided to watch it to try it out. And I liked it :)
I've finished the whole series and it was pretty good! The sort of light-hearted comedy that you can even half-watch and still understand.

One tiny gripe though...
The name? Cougar Town?
Where's the cougar?
Urban Dictionary defines a Cougar as:

An older woman who frequents clubs in order to score with a much younger man. The cougar can be anyone from an overly surgically altered wind tunnel victim, to an absolute sad and bloated old horn-meister, to a real hottie or milf.

Now it might have just been me missing something blindingly obvious, but at no point does Courteney go clubbing and looking for younger guys...
If anyone's doing that, it's her neighbour Grayson - but then he's a guy so that doesn't count.
Perhaps they named it based on the pilot, which is the only indication to 'Cougarism' (i made up a word :) ) Though in the actual series she doesn't go looking for a guy at all. The script writers make anything like that come to her.
But, what else are they going to call it? "Woman in the suburbs"? "Divorced Mom's Coffee Club"? (I actually quite like the second xD though it would probably be a better film than TV show...)

But apart from that, I really liked it :)
At one point, they were watching TV and when the camera angle switched, I could see they were watching scrubs :D That gained a lot of love.

My house is a mess.

We're getting the builders in. And no euphemisms. We are literally getting people to come and fix things in our house :)

Brand new kitchen and bathroom and bedroom. It's all change!!

So of course that means we have to empty all those rooms and strip the wallpaper. Which would be fair enough under normal circumstances. Except I also have to get ready to go on a 5 week holiday. Yeah...

I have a feeling I won't be getting much sleep the night before...

I've just seen the new volvo advert.


They're using Twilight to advertise volvos completely.
I was actually wondering how long it would take...
But oh dear.

Do they really think their widest target audience is the Twilight readers?
