I realize there's been a lot of craziness about Twilight this past year. I first heard about Twilight from blogging pal Shannon at FrecklesQuilts--she's a huge fan! So I bought the book--me and 40 million other people! I read a page or two and got busy. I passed it on to my daughters and they both read it and later bought the rest of the books in the Twilight series. They were hooked. I kept telling myself I'd get to reading that book when quilting slowed down a bit. Needless to say, it hasn't slowed down. The book has been sitting on a shelf, now collecting dust.
Last night Daughter #2 took me to finally see Twilight-The Movie. We even went to the dollar-theater. After all, it will be out on DVD soon, won't it? It was Daughter #2's second time seeing the movie.
I was surprised to see the theater packed! Typical nights at the dollar-theater have many empty seats. And the majority of the viewers last night were young girls. The first time the character Edward appeared on the screen, the young girls in the theater squealed and clapped. I looked around and laughed and said to Daughter #2, "Oh my, what's this all about?"
Ok, so now I'm hooked! I enjoyed the film very much. I was the only one making comments throughout. Everyone else was glued to the screen. I would ask my daughter, now who's that guy? and why did that happen? etc. Yes, I'm one of those annoying viewers! You know the kind. You've probably turned around and said "Shhhhh!" to me in the theater. Daughter #2 told me "Shhhhh!" and said, "You have to read the book Mom, then you'll understand everything."
Am I a converted "Twilighter"???
Maybe so. I'm just a newbie, though. Of course, I dusted off my copy of the book this morning and started reading it again. I'll let you know how it goes. I can't wait for the DVD release! (Where has Robert Pattinson been? Those eyes! My goodness!)
Now, back to work, Vivian!
(How can Vivian get back to work, when she'd rather read all about Edward Cullen....Except for the whole vampire thing...does a man like that even exist!!!?)
