But I Am Le Tired.... (And a movie review!)

I'm so tired today. I stayed up way past my bedtime crafting last night. Then I couldn't go to sleep when I did get to bed. Then I kept waking up every few minutes once I finally got to sleep. It was a rough night. But at least I got some quality crafting done! I'll show you what I was making soon. It's a little something for one of my favorite people (who I know is probably reading this) so I don't want to spoil the surprise.

In other news, I finally watched The Runaways last night.

Has anybody else seen it? I'm curious what other people think. Here are a few thoughts (in my extremely unprofessional opinion):

1. I love me some Joan Jett. All the way to my core.
2. It was weird seeing Bella Swan drop the f-bomb every 5 seconds.
3. It was weirder seeing Dakota Fanning snort coke lines.
4. Kristen Stewart is just plain awkward. No matter who you dress her up as.
5. Even with all the sex, drugs and rock & roll, it somehow was still "soft" to me. I don't mean this as a compliment. I wanted it to be slightly more gritty.
6. It had the emotional range of a cactus.
7. Okay, so the scene where the guitar instructor tries to teach Joan how to play "On Top of Old Smokey" made me laugh.
8. "K-Stew" really does look like a young JJ in the movie. She does not, however sound like one. No more singing, please.

Conclusion: It certainly wasn't the worst movie I've ever seen. I'd watch it again... if I caught it on cable and there was nothing else on.

And now, the actual Runaways:

Happy Monday!
