Where are my Twilight DVD's?

Well, as most of my twitter friends know. I have ordered 4 copies of the Twilight movie. Yes, I think Twilight/Rob has made me lose my mind, however, I can't seem to resist all the extras. I started with the Amazon copy then moved on to Borders, Best Buy(Bluray version) and then of course I had to have the 3-disk version from Target. Note: I ordered the Bluray version without actually possessing a bluray player. I then proceeded to announce to my husband that we were going to purchase a bluray player and a new HD flatscreen tv. My obsession has taken on new heights, I know.

However, here it is Sunday the 22 of March and I have 0 DVD's in my possession. Well, my twitter friends will be proud of me for exhibiting extraordinary strength and control while shopping in my local Wal-mart store yesterday. I was able to even actually pick up a copy of the Twilight Single-Disk version and not place it into my shopping cart. I even made it out of the store without going back and getting it. Of course, I did pick up a copy of Life & Style that had Rob and Kristen on the cover. All they have to do is stick a picture of Rob on the cover and I just have to have it.

Well, I anxiously look forward to getting my copies of Twilight this week. I have read all the chatter for those of you that have already received your copies and am delighted. All I can say now is that I better clean my house today, because I will not be getting anything done this week. I can assure you of that. Happy Sunday everyone. Have a good one.

My "The Bad Mother's Handbook" Story

OK, I cringe to even write this down but since my DH and DFriends have benefited from my ignorance(and did their fair share of LAO), here I go. I have this thing about researching actors after I see a movie that I love. I had seen KStew in several of hers, Peter Fac. in Supernova(OMG he is hot), Elizabeth in Grey's Anatomy, well you get the picture. I started researching Rob Pattinson and since he hasn't done a lot of movies it was difficult. I guess it is virtually impossible to get a copy of The Haunted Airman(I even contacted BBC to no avail). I did see bits on YouTube. He does a great job by the way. Well, I WANTED The Bad Mother's Handbook. So, I ordered it off I thought I was brillant. Well, after I ordered it and it was on its way, I found out that there are different DVD regions in the world. Well, just so you guys know(I may be the only person who didn't know), North America is Region 1. UK is region 2. Needless to say that my much anticipated movie will not work in my DVD players. But there is hope, I (with some more exhausting research) figured out that most computers will allow you to switch between regions 4 or 5 times before finalizing on a region. So, I made my first switch and was able to at least watch it once. Well, I thought I would try to rip it to my Zune and guess what? It worked. So I have a copy of it on my Zune that I can watch(can't watch the DVD but this will have to do until they come to their senses and release it in region 1). So beware my friends, If you order DVD's from overseas, make sure that they are Region 1. Haha
This is my first attempt at a blog. It is still in the creating stage so be patient. I don't really know what I am doing..haha.
