There are so many blog posts in my head... so little time! But first things first, I want to ask if ANY of you sent me a T-shirt anonymously. I know it's a stretch, since my latest obsession I haven't even confessed on the blog yet, but I have exhausted all immediate possibilities, so I need to reach out to all of you. Okay, I guess in order to truly get the dirt on who sent me this shirt, I will have to go ahead and let the dirty little cat out of the ugly little bag he's been hiding in.
I am reading the Twilight series. (stunned silence from the crowd)
Yes, yes, I know, it's "beneath me", I said the SAME thing! (So glad you agree!) But, as it turns out, I'm not actually as smart or as "above average" reader as I actually thought I was. True enough, I love a good Emerson or Dostoevsky as much as the next guy... but it turns out I also like the immortal and the damned. So, my confession is this... I'm not just READING the series, I'm hooked (like the crazy lady who carries her book everywhere kind of hooked) on them. Since January 3 I have read two of the four books. I'm enthralled by the leading man, never mind that he's an ice-cold vampire, about which I could not care less, who is "hard as granite." I am not an Anne Rice fan, I have never been particularly interested in high school level reading, even when I was in high school. And for this reason, I protested and pro-longed when my best friend begged me to read it (she's already finished all four.) Never one to resist peer pressure, when all the mom's starting gushing over it, I couldn't be left out, but I was determined that I was going to read the first one so that I could poo-poo all the trash reading moms who aren't "real readers." Ahem, guess who is a trash reading gutter dweller. Yep... I retract all the statements I made about the lack of seriousness of your reading choices, Amie. Next thing you know I'll be seen with a Danielle Steele book (not that there's anything wrong with Danielle Steele lest you all bombard me with pleas to read HER books and I have to be seen at the pool with a Romance novel! :) Ahem... ahem... I digress.
This brings me to the question of the day... who the HECK sent me a Twilight T-shirt from Cafe Press? I have hidden the fact that I was even reading it, sticking to dark alley's and the cover of my own bedroom after midnight, I haven't told anyone that I am reading these books, let alone that I LOVE these books. So... who among you knew and sent me this T-shirt just to taunt me? I've asked all the usual suspects.... now someone needs to make a confession of their own!
I wish I could leave you with some enlightening quote from the book... but I don't think there actually are any... just good old fashioned teenage girl obsession and one VERY hot (although he's ice cold) leading man! :)
