Homage is a funny word. (aka QVC makes even nail guns look appealing.)

by

At the risk of alienating people, what the fuck is the big deal about Twilight? It was entertaining in the way any competant book for teenagers is entertaining. I didn’t think it was the most amazing book I’d ever read, which is certainly what I was veering towards due to the rave reviews of everyone I know.

I think the power of literature shines when it appeals to a large audience. I can certainly say that I have friends from all over who thought this book was absolutely cracktastic, and I think that’s cool. Me? Not so much.

I did like the whole crazy vampire chase thing at the end. But there were some poor plotting/character points. Also, predictable much?

All that aside, I am still planning on reading the others. Started New Moon last night and so far have no real compulsion to pick it up. I do think Twilight could have contributed to my, shall we say, ‘antsy-ness’ last night. And for that alone, I thank it.

This morning I’m in pain. Last night was a shit sleep, as the only position there is any comfort in is when I am angled on my side. I am now wearing the two sizes too big sweatpants I bought for the egg collection, and they fit like a glove. I really think we’ll be told after the scan tomorrow that the egg collection is this Wednesday.

I hope so. Because next Wednesday at work is a like a big group field trip. We’ve won this very elite national award, and we all get to be hoity toity. I just think it’ll be fun fun fun. Plus, it means my first day back in the office is A Fun Day, as opposed to having to juggle things around and miss two weekly groups in a row.

Ouch.

All these mothauckas, ucking up my shi.

    I guess I can appreciate “Twilight” for the simple fact that it’s getting some people more interested in reading. The girls who pick up Twilight are probably going to pick up Anne Rice books too, because all the sudden vampires are so super sexy that if they don’t read more about vampires, they’re going to die.

    But yeah, from all I’ve heard, it’s a super predictable series. Written for teenagers like you said, so it is what it should be :]

    Lookin forward to news about the scan!

    I don’t think ANY writing should be predictable, though! I mean, I accept that 12 year olds might think this was super hot. And I also accept that I’m not 12. Not sure where I’m going with this.

    I’m excited about the scan too. If only to see that I haven’t popped some of these follicles under my own steam. Am jumpin’ and jivin’ in pain today – thank god for Laguna Beach, hot chocolate, and TMD.

    I’m not a teenager……….and you know my deep love for twilight.

    it gets better every time i read it.

    and fyi, if the last book in the series (breaking dawn) is predictable, then hats off to you. at least it blew my mind.
