2 Disappoinments in One Day!

So, I finally watched Twilight. I've been hearing about this movie/book for months - admittedly the comments haven't all been good but on a whole I would say most people I have talked to loved the movie and have watched it at least 15 times (well, Isabella Tunstall has anyway).

It hasn't been released in NZ yet but a friend of ours lent us a copy she got from the states. I was so excited to see what all the hype was about! So I'm watching and after about 10 minutes I start thinking - surely this is going to get better! But it doesn't! I wouldn't watch it again if you paid me and I am super happy I didn't actually spend money going to see it at the movies. It was lame. Utterly Disappointed!

The second disappoinment of the day came when I made Easter Bunny cookies for the kids to take to school. Did you know that for some bizaare reason M&M's are now sold as single colours? Thats right people - no more lovely rainbow of colours - just one boring colour per bag! I'm thinking maybe the recession has hit the m&m company and they can no longer afford to pay someone to mix up all the colours.
I got the m&m's to be the eyes on the bunnies and my lucky colour was yellow - so all the bunnies had to have yellow eyes. I think they would have looked much better with all different coloured eyes but I guess now there won't be kids fighting over who gets the red eyes and who gets the blue eyes. Yellow's not so bad but I'll be really annoyed if I ever buy a bag of m&m's and they're all brown ... And Mum will hate to get a bag of blue ones cos she reakons she can taste the difference!?!

What are you talking about? M&Ms has gone crazy? You can buy them in single colours here- but it costs extra! That's the dumbest thing I have heard of today.

yeah the m&ms things is so stupid. It would be ok if you could choose your colour, but it's the luck of the draw. weird. but if you find a mixed up bag you win cash. I wonder if its forever, or just a promotion??

re: twilight - you should read the book, i think you will have a better idea of the hype, and why teenage girls love it. All the longing stares between bella and edward.

I can't believe the M&Ms only come in one color. They always have decorated ones for every holiday. You can choose the plain pastel colors but they've come up with some speckled egg shapes too. LIke wade said, the single colors up here cost like 4 bucks for a 1/2 cup of candy! CRAZY and I haven't read or watched the movie Twilight. Not sure about it yet...
