I keep a small stack of books in the backseat of my car. Traveling - there is a lot of unexpected downtime with my job... These books come in handy, for example, when your mustang decides to kick-it in SouthBend, Indiana.....
It was the concoction of my car breaking down and this stack of books which kept me from updating my blog this week. When that burly tow-truck driver said, "Gettcho stuff outta the caww, ma'am! Gotwa get home n'see ma wife!" My hands slipped behind the passenger's seat, gripping the first book they touched - Who knew if Motel 6 would have Internet!? Who knew if I was going to have to spend the next five hours watching infomercials?
Ahhh! I grabbed the Twlight novel that my mother bought me for Christmas! Agh! Why oh why did I grab that book!? The first novel was oppressively horrible to get through. The dialogue was unrealistic and the writing was downright pathetic - yet three days later? I find myself purchasing the second book!? The second novel put me through physical pain..... I wanted to throw myself off the cliff with Bella. Drown! Drown! Yet, I could not stop reading them..... while in Milwaukee I picked up the third book, in Cleveland I bought the fourth. The fourth book was actually a really enjoyable read...... Spent most of today, reading the online copy of the fifth book (which was illegally distributed all over the internet, poor Stephanie....)
But taking a step away from Stephanie's books..... what is going on with this whole vampire-phenomenon? Vampires are everywhere! Walmart has plastered Twlight posters and memorabilia all over the walls - all over the bookstores, the Internet, the TV - The guy that checked me out at the bookstore the other day had Edward hair - no one in their right mind should wear their hair like that!? No one!... I feel so lame for falling into all this vampire-commercialism (ha, that is funny... cause commercialism sucks life away..... get it.... ha.... haha... vampire... yea....whatever) Geeze! Someone please pass the depressing, heartbreaking Oprah book.....!!! I cannot take this anymore.... ahhh... vampires!!
