The Best Day

Yesterday was an awesome day for a few reasons.

Number 1: Eclipse. Hubs and I went to Columbia to go see a midnight showing with my best friend. The movie was amazing! The best yet. For films like Twilight that are based on books, it is sometimes hard to keep certain parts from being... "stupid" (for lack of a better word). Its like those really awkward scenes where the whole Twilight world kind of falls apart for a moment because of a stupid line, bad acting, or weird visual that makes you go "I'm a little embarrassed to be watching this right now." That being said, Eclipse lacked a lot of these stupid scenes, which is awesome and hard for filmmakers to accomplish with the fantasy subject matter. The film flowed brilliantly. The acting was much improved, although I think that Kristen Stewart still can't act (although she has improved) and is totally wrong for the role, but thats a different story. I felt it wasn't a far cry from the book, which is always good. And I basically just had a great time watching it and I really can't wait to see it again.

Number 2: USC won the college world series! We watched the game from 7:30 last night up until we had to leave for the theater at 11. We were sitting in the theater waiting for the movie to start when someone yelled "We won!" So exciting. I wish we could have seen the end of the game, but its always cool to be sitting in a room with a bunch of Gamecock fans and hearing you just won the national title in baseball. We've been waiting for this day for a long time and it feels awesome.

Number 3: Beezers. Haven't heard of Beezers? They make the most amazing sandwiches that are the staple of a college student's diet. Its amazingly tasty, its cheap, its better for you than pizza, they're open until 4am and they deliver. What could be better for a college student? I went there several times a week when I was at USC and since we were in Columbia last night we were able to go. Twice. Once for supper, once for a 3am snack after the movie. Beezers tastes like college, and I guess that's why I love it so much. It reminds me of the best years of my life and I only wish there was a shop closer to my house. Clearly, I'm obsessed.

It was a wonderful day.
