Really Late Twilight Thoughts. And Some Shirts.

I've been watching "New Moon" whilst on the treadmill this week.  The previous week, it was "Paranormal Activity" (pretty good!).  Before that: "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" (hardcore!!!!).  I chose "New Moon" because I gave "Twilight" (the movie) a second chance recently and didn't hate it.  To rewind, my history with "Twilight" began when TWILIGHT was the only book out by Stephenie Meyer.  In fact, Stephenie and I had a little email friendship going for a while.  We discussed how I was afraid of the revision process for GET WELL SOON, and she told me how she was working on her revisions for NEW MOON.  Crazy, huh?  She was sweet and super nice.  Admittedly, I only read the first book in the series.  I read books as a librarian, not for my own pleasure, so once a series is super popular, I generally move on to other books.  Harry Potter and Georgia Nicolsen books, not included.

Because I haven't read more than the first book, my opinions may be a little off from those who read the novels.  But I really don't get the appeal of Edward AT ALL.  What does Bella see in him?  What does he see in Bella?  They don't even seem to enjoy each other's company.  It's all stupid stares and brooding looks and PAIN and longing.  Ugh.  They are so BORING.  Now, Jacob, he seems like a nice guy.  Not the brightest bulb, but at least he makes Bella laugh.  They can talk.  Fix up bikes together.  Something more than looking at each other with constipated looks on their faces.  And I'm not just saying this because of Jacob's buff bod; that's not my thang.  Edward does nothing for me, though.  Nothing.  And I don't like the other vampires, either.  They are so snobby.  What makes them better than the werewolves?  At least the werewolves are born that way, part of a tribe.  The vampires are at the mercy of other vampires who have to turn them.  I don't know.  I'm having trouble focusing on writing this blog post while I watch "Cake Boss" at the same time.  Plus, I can't stop thinking about this taffy apple I have in the kitchen.  The post was waaayyyy funnier when I wrote it in my head yesterday.  Sorry.  But it's a Sunday post, so I don't think many of you are reading it anyway.

Now for my favorite Sunday activity: the hideous newspaper clothing ad.  Today's ad is for all you dudes out there looking to bring back the grunge look.  With snaps.
How can you go wrong?  I bet Edward would think he was too cool for these shirts.  And Jacob wouldn't bother wearing one.  Or he would be all, what's a snap?  Neither could resist the multiple offerings of free postage, though.  Such a deal!

I wish you'd post more hideous newspaper ads. They're hilarious!
