Vampires on my mind

Um so let me explain why I haven't posted anything yet this week. It's because I have been reading Stephenie Meyer's Twilight series and avoiding doing anything else. Seriously I am obsessed. Jen is the one who told me to read these books because she herself is obsessed. So I picked up Twilight to take to Virginia Beach. I was a little unsure because it's for teenagers, but I mean let's take an honest look at me: I love shows about teenagers, I love movies about teenagers, my maturity level is that of a 16 year old (on a good day) and I love vampire stuff (Buffy, Lost Boys, etc.). The odds were good I would like it.

You guys, I am actually embarassed at the speed at which I am going through these books. It's pathetic. I absolutely love them, and I cannot put them down. I must know what is going to happen next at all times. It's like my replacement Olympics where I'm actually going without sleep just so I can keep reading. To be fair, Sharda read Twilight at the same time as me and didn't like it. So keep in mind it's just my opinion and that might not mean much. But I will say that if you don't like it something is wrong with you. Just kidding, Sharda. Not really, you guys.

I will be going to see the movie version of this the day it opens in November. I'll wear too much eyeliner and no jacket and complain about my parents to try and fit in with the other teenagers.

On an unrelated note, did anyone watch "Fringe" on Tuesday? I thought it was pretty good. A little forced in some places, but show pilots are hardly ever great. You usually have to give it a couple episodes so they can set up the story and characters and stuff. But I thought this one was interesting. And gross. Um...those people were melting! That guy's jaw fell off! I almost puked. Then I saw Joshua Jackson and all was well. I'll watch this one just to see him every week. Mmm...I love you, Pacey.

I was the same way about Stephenie Meyer's books. I tore through them. You should try her adult book, "The Host", too.

We watched Fringe. I thought it was pretty good- except for the lead chick, her acting was pretty rough in parts. She must give good head. Awesome plot line though.

I'm gonna catch fringe online if you say it's worth it.

The books? Sometimes I wish I could go back and read the boxcar children (damn it I loved those books) and a few years ago I found a Goosebumps book in a box of stuff packed up at my moms. And I didn't have anything. And I was bored. And... yeah :P

So you tell us about your books any time! I will always make you feel better about yourself.

Vegetarian vampires=awesome. I still am dying for someone to finish book four so I can talk to them about it. Anyone, internet?

I watched "Fringe" the other night, too. I thought it was good, although they probably weeded out a lot of viewers by their more-graphic-than-it-needed-to-be opening scene.

I'm anxiously awaiting the next episodes, because I sold some photo's of mine to the production company for "Fringe" for use on the set on Olivia Dunham's apartment.

I think the show looks promising. We'll see how it goes in the upcoming episodes.

loved fringe. it's "lost like" to me and that makes it my new bff. I am already sucked into the clues in the show, and finding "the pattern". i mean, the commercials, the symbols. (a six fingered hand??? apple with embryos instead of seeds?)

I'm waiting for someone to start a "fringepedia" like "lostpedia"

omg they're totally gonna read that dead guys mind! Sweet!

Ummm. . . if you're into Vampires you should watch that new show on HBO called True Blood. It's on before Entourage and the last two weeks we've ended up watching the encore that follows Entourage. It's good. And Anna Paquin stars in it.

It also has a lot of sex in it now that I think about it. At least the last two episodes have.

Lis, I've finished it. Call me.

(just kidding. but totally comment or something on my blog and we'll talk. Important question - back before the fourth book, would you have picked Edward or Jacob? There is only one correct answer to this question.)
