NEW MOON

Victor really likes his cell phone and often checks his bank accounts; the weather and the phases of the moon.  At such times, Victor will announce:  "It's a full moon tonight."  I reply back:  "No it's not; it's a New Moon."  He states:  "My cell phone shows a picutre of the moon and it's a full moon."  I respond with more firmness:  "No.  It is New Moon.  Go outside and look.  There is no moon out there." 

He never goes outside to look.

So, last Saturday the Victor and the sons went to the annual Turkey Shoot and the girls went to the movies to watch, you guessed it, New Moon.

The very beginning of the movie shows the phases of the moon from full moon to new moon.  As the moon transitions to the new moon phase the title of the movie phases in "NEW MOON".

I thought:  "HA! When Victor and the boys go with us tonight he will see with his very own eyes the difference between a new moon and a full moon."

Yes, I watched New Moon twice on Saturday.

No, Victor paid no attention to the giant Moon on the big screen.

Any way, bit of trivia:  During Twilight Stephanie Meyer appears during one of the cafe scenes.  A very obvious screen shot of her.  The waitress even addresses her as "Stephanie".  Check it out, you'll see.

Now it has become customary for authors to appear in their books turned movies.  I had two opportunities to watch the movie last Saturday and I am quite certain that she appears in the movie.  If I am right, the only part of your face that you see is shadowed by the red hooded cloak (no she is not red ridinghood) that she is wearing and she turns to look at Bella as she runs past her through the plaza to the fountain.  She looks at Bella and looks straight into the camera.  Check it out.  Tell me if I'm wrong.

The moon is currently transitioning to the full moon status.  Full Moon is December 2nd.

She was in the first movie too. She had a quick 2 second cameo at the diner Bella and her dad eat at. :)

I saw the space shuttle and the space station last night. I have a feeling that will be more exciting than the movie.
