why have one date when you can have TWO?

i couldn't choose!
so i said, "to hell with it,"
and bought a third ticket.
one for me
one for craig
and one for alex!

teehee.

so thursdee night, we congregated at the 34th street imax and put on our crowns...
alex and craig in their cute little homemade starbucks coffee cup crowns, me in my gold max crown.

and in we went...

to see
what was one of the most
beautiful
movies
i have ever seen.

the score, the scenery, the wild things, the script, the message, the feeling that i got...
all so beautiful.

even now when i think back to watching it, i feel like there's a big fluffy blanket cuddling over me.

i want to see it again now please!






tomorrow and tomorrow and tomorrow!!!


i'm counting down the minutes! i cannot wait!!!


there was a red carpet in front of my school yesterday for the premiere in alice tully hall.
not fair!

so close, yet so far.
