Distractions

I haven't read at all yesterday or today! That almost never happens. But, yesterday, I got my amazon order in...

Based on my previously mentioned obssession with The Office, then I had to have a marathon viewing session. I've now finished it (I only saw a few-maybe four-episodes while it was being aired), and I was very, very impressed. I am so excited for season four!

And then, I went to see this movie tonight-you guys probably haven't even heard of it-but it's based on a novel, apparently by some author called Ned? No..Neil. ;) Yep-I just got back from Stardust!!! I was kind of nervous going in, because I really liked the book, but I haven't read the book in quite a while (going to reread it soon), so I figured I was safe. And it was so much fun. :D Especially how Tristan suddenly becomes super-hot half way through. I'm thinking Stardust will be on the list of Swoonworthy Reads now! Come on...take a look (note my shameless cropping of as much of the girls as possible)...

It's amazing what some hair texture and a kickass coat can do! Of course, the knee high boots + pantaloons certainly don't hurt. ;)

Well, I was just checking in. I promise there's bookish talk to come soon! And for now...well, I'll be basking the afterglow of Stardust. Hope everyone's having a good weekend!

Edited to add: in the preview, all of the pictures of Tristan were lined up, but in the actual blog, they're taking up more space. *pout*

You're making me really want to see the film! I probably won't get a chance to see it on the big screen, since I don't have the book and don't want to see the movie without reading it first. Sigh.

Plus, I kind of used up my movie-going impetus for the year on OotP.

I'm reading (and loving!) Stardust. Now, I can't wait to see the movie!

Yeah, that Tristan character could sure be called a "distraction"

LOL, love this post! I have an unhealthy obsession with all things Steve Carrell, so I should really watch all of The Office. :)

Poodlerat, it looks really good on the big screen, so I'd at least consider going to see it without reading the book. My mom and my sister hadn't read the book, and they both really enjoyed the movie. :)

Susan, awesome! It'll be interesting to reread the book now that I've seen the movie.

Stephanie, lol. Lately it seems I can't post without having a distracting picture up . :D

Andi, Steve Carrell is awesome in the show, but he's so good at being his character that it's often painful to watch! I'm not going to lie-a big part of the show for me is John Krasinski. So adorable.
