“The Twilight Saga: Eclipse” Release!
I feel like I did when *Nsync came out with a new CD, or when JTT (Johnathan Taylor Thomas, for all you youngins out there) made his grand appearance down the stairs on “Home Improvement” every week.
Eclipse just released today. **My Heart Flutters**
First of all, I am Team Edward fully and completely. (I will refrain from stating my opinion of Jacob, for I don’t want to lose any blog readers over it.)
Second of all…I NEVER imagined I would be *into* vampire lore. EVER. When I first was told by my friend Stef to read the Twilight books – I practically scoffed at her. “Dude…(I recall saying)…I’m not into Vampires.” I am sure she said something along the lines of, “You’ll love it…give it a chance…” or at least something to that extent. I finally caved in when my friend Beth offered to let me borrow the first and second books. (After all, she’s a mother with three kids – one of them almost in his teens. If *she* likes them, then there must be something to them!)
To say it plainly, I read the entire series within four days. It’s all I did. It consumed me.
Now, I attend the midnight releases of the films. Stef and I get together at Asian Nights casino for an evening of drinks (sometimes dancing) – and walk into a theater packed with tweens and teens always asking, “Do you know you smell like alcohol?” It’s hilarious! As if we’re not well over the legal drinking age… (*NOTICE* – you never get out of these films until about 3:00-3:15 in the morning, just enough time to sober up after a good time with a girlfriend – no judgements please!!)
SOOOOOOOO…to make a long story, well…longer – Eclipse is now in my posession.
Do you think I can convince the hubby to stay awake long enough to watch the entire movie tonight? Hmmm…we’ll see…
