games, games, games..

i have seen twilight 4 times now...oh dear! eek. ...the sky. i keep looking at it recently...i have no idea why. i just do.
i am so rubbish at lips/singstar/whatever its called!!! i like singing..well for fun anyway..i really cannot sing! but i suck at the game! my friend is amazing, she is a great singer though....so i guess that helps!! :)ah so its that time again, that time that is meant to be fun, amazing, a new year!!! wahoo!! yay....NOT. new years is a horrible time. it is meant to be fun, but the night always seems to suck, whatever you do. i have never been a fan of new years eve...but i was invited to my friends house for a little party, which sounds fun...but i never have high hopes on new years. however, fun was had! and we did play monopoly..and what is new year without this amazing game! after snacks..more snacks and bits and pieces it was then time to count down.......and now its January...a whole new year. with lots to be getting on with!ah and i have just come across a movie....i really wanna see....Adventureland. it looks amazing. its from director Greg Mottola- who last project was superbad! and it stars The Squid and the Whale star Jesse Eisenberg. plus Kristen Stewart and Bill Hader are in it. also there are some amazing looking characters in the movie. it all takes place during the summer of 1987, recent college grad James Brennan takes what he thinks is a going-nowhere job at his local amusement park, only to discover it's a perfect opportunity to prepare himself for the real world. if you have not already seen a trailer, please try and find it and watch it!!! it doesn't come out in the states until march....so i am guessing we English will not get it until the summer. :(
right, i am off to watch Into the Wild, which i have been wanting to watch for some time! hope everyone is well! :) and happy new year to you all! oooh wait, just found another movie i really wanna see!! Fanboys- "In 1998, five friends stole their way into history". Star Wars fans travel to Skywalker Ranch to steal an early copy of Episode I: The Phantom Menace....
what more can i say!!!! wahoo! plus kirsten bell is gonna be in it!- she looks wicked with dark hair!

I haven't seen Twilight at all!
Actually, I take that back. I saw like 10 minutes on some illegal movie site online(hah) but it was all teen angst-ey and..i dunno. Just not my cup of tea I think!

Do a lot of people play monopoly on New Years? One of my friends does that too! I've never heard of that tradition.

lina said...

Twilight sounds amazing. I got the first book for christmas, but already I've almost finished it. I haven't seen the film yet though. If you like Kristen Stewart, try watching Speak. It's an amazing film.

Alyssa said...

hey. i still haven't seen twilight yet XD
did you know adventureland was filmed at an amusement park that is right by me and I go to twice a year? yeah. I was going to be an extra in the movie, but I was away when it happened :(

It sounds like you had a great NYE. A lot of my have sucked in the past before too.

Adventureland sounds pretty awesome - I must go check it out when it makes it's way down to Australia.

Aisha said...

You must be truly a fan to watch a movie four times! I couldn't do that, even if I was a fan.
