What’s Going On – ‘Breaking Dawn,’ ‘Idol,’ Metallica

4 Aug

Merry Monday, loves.

Hope you had a good weekend! Mine was pretty awesome.

One of my besties, Debbie, and I went to Memphis to see “Gone With the Wind” at the Orpheum. It’s been a long time since I’d seen “GWtW,” so it was so nice to see it, especially in such a beautiful setting. Some of the movie is maddening (that “happy slave” thing in particular), but a majority of it is pretty rad.

After the movie we raced across town to find a midnight “Breaking Dawn” release party. We finally ran up on one and ran in at exactly midnight, so we didn’t exactly party. But Debbie got her book, and I got mine the next day.

Speaking of, looks like the final book in Stephenie Meyer’s “Twilight” series did very well on its first day out.

I’m only about 300 pages in, so once I’m finished, I’ll write a review and we can discuss it. So, no spoilers just yet!!! That would be just evil.

What did you do this weekend? Did anyone go to a local “Breaking Dawn” party

Here are some newsy bits:

  • “Idol” runner-up David Archuleta has released his first single, “Crush.”

By the way, I just noticed this, and normally I don’t post gossip-y bits, but isn’t quite gossip-y as it is news: Morgan Freeman was injured in a car crash in Ruleville, Miss., last night. Ruleville is between Cleveland and Grenada. Here’s to a fast heal, Mr. Freeman!
