I went to see PS I LOVE YOU AGAIN on the way home from school yesterday. Still loved it.

I have a quibble with ALL THROUGH THE NIGHT. How come all the REALLY emotional scenes are in a secondary character's POV? The proposal was in Sam's POV and the good news Robin got was in Dolphina's. What's up with that?

I'm thinking this list is about to be pared down, given your new, pained reality. :(

#7--did you get entries already? I didn't think they were sending them out until Dec. 31st. How much vacation DO you get from school, anyway? :)

#14--saw both, LOVED them. Also saw PS I Love You tonight, loved it, too. :)

I got my entries the week before Christmas, and I get 2 weeks off - WOOT!

I did not love Legend. Quite a lot didn't love it. Very much a downer.

I thought his death was kind of preordained. Didn't care for the ending, really, but wasn't surprised by it, and it didn't change my appreciation for the rest of the movie. There was no romance involved, I think that's the difference. I'm furious if someone dies after falling in love.

I find myself strangely put out that you got your GH entries before they were supposed to be sent. LOL I wonder if I won't get to judge this year? It would be the first year, I think, since I joined RWA.
