My Horrifying Love of Twilight

My obsession with Twilight is my newest fear. I know, this isn't really about Halloween or pumpkins, but I have to talk about it before I explode.

First of all, being obsessed with any one thing is spOoOOOOoOOoOky because it's all you think about, and sometimes it gets expensive ($75 on the books...), and goes out of control....
which is where i'm teetering now.
It all started last Saturday when Renee asked me to go see it with her and Cos, so I figured what the heck. I hadn't even heard of Twilight until I started seeing the signs for it everywhere plastered all over the place "When you can live forever what do you live for" blah blah blah. whatever, I'll go see it, how bad can it be? I mean, there are Vampires in it!

We saw it at 11 am, and by 1:30 (the movie is 2 hours long), I was at the register at Border's Books buying the book.
I walked immediately from the theater to the book store, I needed no more proof.
Now I'm becoming horrified at myself because it's completely taken over my brain and thought process.

First of all, let's talk about the movie. Have you seen it yet? Ladies? This movie is based on the book of the same name by Stephenie Meyer, and is seeping with perfect romance that us sappy saps love to hate...and hate to love. I hate mushy gushy lovey dovey garbage...but for some reason...this movie....I can't get enough. I want to BE in the movie and book.
And then, there's this guy:
That's Edward Cullen, who is played by Robert Pattinson:

Who I also had never heard of until this movie because I am not an avid Harry Potter fan. But seriously, where has this dude been all my life?
Anyways, he plays the most romantic vampire in the world, and the chemistry between him and Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart) almost made me break a sweat because they seriously should consider dating in real life.

Don't they make a good couple?
I literally watched the entire film with one hand on my cheek and making loud sighs with a huge grin on my face that would say "awwwwwwwwwwwwwww that's niiiiiice" the entire time.
After watching the movie and hating that my life isn't as magical as theirs, we had a reading party where I proceeded to go into a coma of literature. I never read anything more "literary" (*for lack of a better word) than People magazine, and here I am, tearing through a Young Adult section book that is aimed at 12 year old girls and I can't get enough of.
Then Renee and I went again, dragging poor defenseless Jim who rolled his eyes and made gagging noises...while I pointed out all of the things that Edward did and said that I thought Jim might like to take note of...he didn't enjoy that very much.
Then I finished the entire first book, which I think has over 500 pages if memory serves, in about 2 1/2 days.
I decided to speed up the inevitable and so I purchased the other 3 books at 10:00 PM on a Tuesday night at Barnes & Noble. I couldn't imagine not having the rest of the books handy when I finished New Moon, I'd be destroyed.
Then I read the entire unfinished book, kind of out of order, I know, but not really, in one sitting because I couldn't look away. It was leaked online and Stephenie Meyer put it on her website for her readers.
and then Renee I went to see it AGAIN...with Jim once again kicking and screaming the whole way in.
Anyway, I don't want to spoil it for you if you haven't seen it...I mean, I'd love to spoil it for you and blab away about it....
Here's more pictures of him that I like to drool over:

Edward Cullen in a suit is perfection, in my book. SpoOoOooOoky hot vampire perfection, I mean.

While the blogmaster of the Monster Bash Blog may have wanted to hold back details of the film for fear of spoiling it, I have no such reservations:

The one guy is a vampire.

Then he kisses other vampires.

Then he kisses the girl who isn't a vampire.

Then they kiss some more.

Then they kiss.

Then hold hands.

Then he climbs trees with her on his back.

Then he talks about "his world."

Then they dance at a prom.

The End.

Well, Jim, while I appreciate your comment, you're a little incorrect on a few facts from the movie...

Edward and Bella only kiss twice in the movie...aside from a forehead kiss every now and then.

also, Edward doesn't kiss other vampires, you were sleeping...what movie were you watching?

Also they don't really hold hands much because of his cold skin.

i love "his world".
