My brother, Ben, just shared this with me. It's now one of my new favs.

In other news, "Twilight" did well this weekend at the Box Office, sucking in a cool $70 mill in ticket sales. Not bad considering it cost $37 mill to make.

There now will most definitely be a sequel. Hopefully the special effects are better.

Don't get me wrong, I liked it, I just didn't love it.

What did you?

Happy Twilighting

Hi everyone. I'm sitting here at work trying my hardest not to run out of here to the nearest theater to see Twilight.

As most of you who have read this blog in the past month or so know, I'm obsessed with Stephenie Meyer's vampire series. I'm also a fan of this band from the Pacific Northwest, Band of Horses.

This morning I attempted to buy tickets to their New Years Eve show in Atlanta, but they had already sold out. I was pretty bummed.

At the risk of sounding overly dramatic, these two distractions-music and Twilight- have been my crutches these past few months. I've been able to bury myself in them and forget for whole minutes that Morgan's gone.

Anyway, just thought I'd write about how happy I am to have found these interests and now, in just a matter of weeks, I'll be able to share at least one of them with my husband.

In conclusion, I managed to find tickets to see Band of Horses on New Years in Atlanta online so M and I are going! It's going to be great. Bet you I cry at some point in the night.

Man it'll be good to have him back.

Goodbye Wojdakowski

I went to a pretty awesome change of command ceremony yesterday.

Fort Benning's commander, Maj. Gen. Walter Wojdakowski, will retire Jan. 1, but as of about 10:30 a.m., Maj. Gen. Michael Barbero is the installation's 49th CG.

Here's the story I wrote.

Here's the story Mick Walsh, former Ledger military reporter, did on Wojdakowski.

Also, just because it's cute, here's a real life FURBY!

Man cured of AIDS

My brother, Ben, shared this with me this morning after admonishing me for never reading the paper.

Umm, Ben, I work at a newspaper, why would I read them? Dah.

My apologies, again, for being a bad blogger. Life is just busy right now. Hopefully, I'll be able to buckle down after the holidays and focus on just one beat here at the Ledger.

The countdown to Morgan's return to the U.S. of A is still underway. It's driving me a little insane. Why can't Dec. 20 just be here already?

Also-and I don't put this on the same level of importance as Morgan's homecoming- the countdown to the "Twilight" movie release is also underway. Though I won't be able to see it opening weekend (Nov. 21) because of work commitments, I am going to check it out the following weekend with fam and friends whilst in Boston. So excited!
