And a third post this evening...

So after I post, I have a habit of reading everyone else's blogs from my blog roll. And I read my friend Sara's. Who had recently read another friend's blog and posted this link about the actors for the Cullen family in the upcoming movie production of Twilight. Be prepared, fellow Twilight obsessed fans...Edward is sorely disappointing. I mean, he's Cedric Diggory. I would have done most of the casting differently, I think. I'm afraid the story is going to turn Harry Potter-ish, which is sad. (And not just because of the actor casted as Edward.) I love the Harry Potter books. The movies, on the other hand, don't do the books justice. Sure they are fun to watch (especially around Halloween), but one must keep in mind that the books and the movies are two separate things ENTIRELY. And I'm afraid, especially from the looks of the cast, that Twilight, the movie, will do the same thing. Oh well. I'm sure I'll still go see it. But let me know what you think...

...Ok, I just read further down and saw the actress they cast as Bella Swan. I have to say, I'm impressed. I guess the casting directors have gotten a lot of flack for casting Kristen Stewart, but in my mind, she's right on. And Elizabeth Reaser, playing the character of Esme, is better known as Ava/Rebecca from Grey's Anatomy. Interesting...

So yeah... I teach piano =)
I teach in Lehi at my mom and dad's house since they have a BEAUTIFUL piano, and we figured I could get more per lesson up there. I would teach down here, and maybe I will sometime, when I can figure how to get my piano A) Tuned and B) out of my bedroom. =) I have had a few people like you that heard that I am teaching that may want to take down here, so we will see. I am teaching my lessons up in Lehi for $12.50 a lesson, but maybe with adults I would mix it up and do semi-private instead of private, or something. In any case, it is paying for my baby insurance!! Yay!

I agree about Edward. I don't think there's an actor that exists that would work right for the movie. I think Bella will do ok and Alice is right on for me. Esme and Carlisle seem too young. I just looked at the website again and Stephenie went on the set and had dinner with the cast members. How weird is that?! You'll have to read what she said, it's pretty funny!
