What did you think of the clip of the pack teasing Jacob?  It’s a great reminder that they are just a bunch of teenage boys underneath all the fur, huh?  I’m looking forward to seeing more of Julia Jones playing Leah Clearwater.  As much as I want to punch Leah in the stories, she adds a great dimension to the dynamic of the pack.

David Slade’s interview was very interesting.  He is such a stark constrast to Catherine Hardwicke.  He seems very deliberate in everything that he does and the way that they analyzed the character’s emotions was really interesting.  I see some strong similarities to the attention to detail that Chris Weitz brought to “New Moon”.  I can’t wait to see the final product – I get chills when I see the newborns coming up out of the water!

Has anyone purchased any of the “Eclipse” merchandise yet?  I’ve got my eye a few things from Nordstrom.  I love the “Camp Cullen” t-shirt and the necklace tank.  I ordered some of the new Twilight Venom from Sephora yesterday.  I can’t wait to get it.  I loved the original stuff, but it’s just too dark for me to try to pull off in the summertime.
