Countdown to Eclipse.....

I wouldn't exactly call myself a "Twi-hard", still I am going to the Premier of the Eclipse film tomorrow night. Yes, I will be up in the middle of the night with hordes of vampire-thirsty women and teenagers, many of them dressed to resemble their favorite characters. I figure I'm participating in an historic event, right? In fact, I've never seen anything quite like the Twilight Fever. It's CRAZY. Of course, I wouldn't miss it for anything. Not just because I enjoyed the books, of course, but because one of my best friends is definitely a Twi-Hard and I don't want to be left out of the fun! Plus, who's going to say no to a girls' night out?

Today, I saw an article about Twilight's effect on marriages. People (and not just women) are actually choosing fictional characters over their real-life, warm-bodied HUMAN spouses. WOW! I always give my friend a hard time for her infatuation, but at least she's not this bad, I hope. Now, don't get me wrong, I get into a good book and little fantasy just like anyone else, but I wouldn't necessarily trade my real life for it (well, except for when I'm reading, that is). In fact, I think it's just a little creepy how intense this teen-age relationship is. Here's hoping my daughters are never this obsessed over a boy!!

So, which way do you swing? Are you on Team Jacob or Team Edward? After the last movie, I'm definitely leaning towards Jake. But, I'll let you know how I feel after Eclipse. Stay tuned.

For those of you who care, here's a thrilling clip from the movie. Oooh, it looks like it's gonna be so good!


  1. there is nothing wrong with a healthy dose of twilight madness!!! :)

    I am not a nut job (at least I hope I'm not), I'm just passionate about things I like. I have my Edward fantasies but not to the point that I would trade in my sanity for them.

    Twilight actually helped my relationship. I didn't have the greatest role models in my life on how to love & as odd as it may sound, I learned a lot about how to love my husband from these books. I think it's nuts that someone would take their obsession to the point that they are trading in their spouse & possibly their family for something that doesn't exist.

  2. My daughter Madisen (18) is Team Jacob and I am Team JAKEWARD. That way Bella gets the best of both worlds. She loves them both, but Edward is her sole mate and she would be miserable with out him. She will never love Jacob the way she she loves Edward and Jake will always know it. Jacob will always be there as her best friend. It's a win-win, she gets them both ...Vampires and Wolfs, after all she did bring them together!

  3. Suzann, I think my friend Annie would love you! She's the one who got me into the whole Twilight thing. I've had a lot of fun with it and I definitely think this last movie was the best!
