By the way, I've also disappeared because I buried myself in the Twilight series by Stephenie Meyer. Vince is annoyed with me because all I do now is shout, "That's Edward's car!" whenever we pass by a Volvo showroom, "I became Edward and Bella's friend on Facebook today!", "Anyone who chooses a werewolf over a vampire is nuts!", "Kissing your best friend is cheating! You're an idiot, Bella!", "OMG, Kristen is Bella and Robert is Edward!"
If you didn't understand all that then I'm sure you'll agree with Vince who swears I've gone absolutely crazy. He thinks that I'm a little too old for the Twilight books, but he patiently went with me to bookstores as I put myself on several reservation lists for the fourth (and last?) book, Breaking Dawn. And I've also convinced about five people to read Twilight, and I hope through this blog, many many more will read the series (Hey, Stephenie, I ought to get a commission here!).
Now I'm not going to talk about the books at all. Suffice it to say that the plot goes a little something like this: simple city girl moves to a tiny town where she's strangely attracted to a ravishingly good-looking boy who happens to be a vampire who is dangerously attracted to her blood but because they fall in love he won't eat her up and so both of them have a seriously life-or-death relationship that I can't stand because the sexual tension is driving me crazy but they can't do it because she might end up as dinner! And that's just the start!!!
Darn. I can't wait for Breaking Dawn. I think I'll really go insane by the time August rolls around.
On a side note, because of Twilight, I really really want a Volvo. Then I watched Iron Man yesterday and now I desperately want an Audi. Okay, so I dream crazy, too, but you never know!
