Do you know about the Harry Potter hang over? or Mickey Mouse hang over?

Well, after reading each book, Jason and I joked about having a Harry Potter hang over. Just sad that it's over. Knowing you have to wait for a year and a half or however long it took for the next book to come out. The movies were no different - oh the waiting and waiting and anticipation. Well, it's no different when you go to Disney - you just can't wait to get there. We always want to do things we haven't done before and then always do our favorites. Then we go home and just feel all sad. Nothing's magical anymore. There are no cute characters standing around town for you to take pictures with. And there you are - HUNG OVER and sad it's all done.

So, that's where I am tonight. I've read the Twilight Saga. I went to see the movie tonight. And I would love to talk about what I thought, how I feel about it - what I liked or didn't like. BUT I don't want to spoil it for anyone. So, I guess I'll wait and see. Give it some time. All I will say is that with today's advanced computer graphics I was extremely disappointed at one point (I think Edward and Bella were in Biology lab) when there was a really close close-up of Edwards eyes - all black and thirsty - and I could totally see the ring around his eye from the contact lens used to make his eyes look dark. THAT was a bummer.

I'm sleepy and feel the need to go read something to get my mind OFF Twilight and that is something I never thought I would say.

I totally, totally, totally understand.

It's been a few months since I've read the books, but I think I'm going to put off re-reading them a little longer and re-read the HP series (again). I figure I'll just eternally cycle these two series. hehe said...

What a bummer. I haven't read the books nor seen the movie, after your post I think I'll skip the movie and just read the books. :)
