I said BRR, it's cold in here

It's been really chilly these days. I mean, yeah it's the Christmas season and all but it's really FREAKIN' COLD! Seriously. I think I could end up wearing socks at night. Don't you feel cold at all? During day time, I do wear shorts but I don't think my legs would be able to hold up if I don't change into something longer once the moon has showed up. BRR. It's just so cold that I could almost see snow falling from the sky. I know this is nothing compared to what winter has to offer but, cmon! we're so not used to this. Rarr! Well, okay. I know it's better than our sizzling hot summers but still, it's really freezing. What's happening to the world? Have we all been that bad that we are being frozen to death (I'm being exagg, I know)? *Sigh*

It's the second night of Simbang Gabi and I went with only my mom. We were waiting for my dad to pick us up somewhere a bit nearer to our house. I wanted to go elsewhere to see my friend but to my disappointment, she didn't let me saying that my dad would be there any minute and we can't afford to make him wait (He's just not the most patient person in the world). I told her that I wouldn't take long and that my dad would prolly arrive later as always. Huh, that still didn't convince her, but guess what? I was right. Turns out, my dad fell asleep so she decided that we start walking. It was damn freezing cold! I didn't bring my jacket, to make matters worse. Gahh! So coooold. What's happening to the world?!

Uh. Sigh. Hug, anyone?

Hundreds and thousands of fans have probably critiqued the movie version of the world-wide phenomenon, Twilight...yet, here I am still continuing with this.

Well yeah, the saga made me all goo-goo-ga-ga over 'em. Seriously. It was an amazing story. That is if you're into romance and all that. Like Harry Potter, I wished for it to be magically viewed in the big screen. Sure, it'd be quite tricky and stuff but HP pulled it off so why not Twilight?
Poof! And now, look at the picture. Yes, indeed that is the movie I was wishing for months back. Finally! Because the wait was too long and hard to bare (exagg, I know!). Little by little, trailers and sneak previews came out and the fans (including me, myself and I) just went wild with anticipation. Then, after the very looooooooooooooooooooooooooong wait, it was time for the movie's release.

Anyway, let's just get to the point, shall we? To cut it short, I was finally able to watch it. Unfortunately, impatience got the best of me so I ended up watching it from the Internet. And let me tell you, it wasn't of good quality just yet. As for the movie, I give it a star. Yey! You think that's good? Well, you know how rating goes, right? The highest to give are five shining, shimmering stars. I'm quite sure some would beg to differ but I know there are those who are just as disappointed as I am.

I do know that the movie version usually has lots of scenes from the original story taken out to make it shorter and more precise but I don't think they did a good job doing that. Honestly, I thought they cut most of the important parts. Some of what they've taken out are essential to the other three books. How they would relate them next time? We have yet to witness.

So, how about you? How do you find the movie version of the best selling novel, Twilight?
