I'm LATE!! Yes, I am quite tardy getting today's post up. BUT I have an awesome excuse. I went to see ECLIPSE last night!!!
Yes, I was one of the weirdly devoted Twi-Moms who clamored in alongside tweenie and teenie boppers for the chance to oogle Jacob and that other guy, Edward. lol
My town ran a triple play, so I was standing my pregnant booty in the heat for almost two hours to watch Twilight, New Moon, and Eclipse. It was a fantastic night of girl talk and tons of sweets! I had a very cool posse of pals to hang with and that totally made the night special!
I think this installment to the Saga was by far the best! I really enjoyed the rivalry between the two boys (yes, boys! lol) However, there times I wished it were a Sookie Stackhouse book-turned-movie I was watching. LOL Especially when the tension between Bella and her suitors grew the point where I was like, "Ok, just kiss him already!!" Sheesh! Sometimes there is a lot to be said for being adult. *wink wink*
It was kind of funny when Edward was explaining his old fashioned views on sex (which is no spoiler to those who haven't seen the movie) and this dad in the crowd yelled, "AMEN!!" Everyone laughed! It was hilarious and I hope some of the youngsters in the crowd might have took something away from that. Maybe? Or I am too hopeful? LOL
Also, I was informed by an slightly older woman than I that was NOT a "cougar" for having a thing for Jacob, but a "puma" aka "A cougar-in-training"!!! OMG! My peeps and I just about died laughing! Hilarious!
So, now I am dragging booty since it was well after 2am when I got home. I didn't accomplish anything yesterday in regards to writing, cleaning, or laundry. *sigh* So, it's all waiting for me today! Yippee!
I know not a lot of authorial-type people don't dig the Twilight Saga, but I think it's a darn good story. Maybe the writing isn't anything superb, but think about it-- here was an aspiring author who just sat down and wrote. Sure it's a Cinderella story, but I have to give the lady props, because she turned on a whole generation of youth to reading!! That right there is a pretty sweet accomplishment, because those readers are going to mature and start looking for a love story with a more adult theme like: "enter YOUR book title here."LOL
Did anyone else brave the crowds to view the latest feather in Stephenie Meyer's cap?
