I admit it. I’m a “Twerd”, a “Twilight” nerd. Edward Cullen is my boyfriend, and I don’t care who knows it. I’m taking him to school with me when we return from Christmas break tomorrow. Seriously. I am. Geoff bought me a life-sized, cardboard cut out of Edward, and I’m putting him right behind my desk. I’ve seen the movie three times, I’m more than half-way through the third novel for the second time, and I’m anxiously awaiting the release of “New Moon”.
Call me crazy. I’ve been called worse. I’ve been called a fang-banger. I have a T-shirt that I wear every time I go see the movie that says, “TEAM EDWARD! Because Jacob Doesn’t SPARKLE!” Yes, it’s hot pink. Yes, it sparkles. Of course, it does! Sean-Martin wants a T-shirt that says, “Suck THIS, Edward!” but I won’t let him have one. Geoff wants the T-shirt that says, “Meanwhile, in a town called ‘Spoons’”.
I never understood the Potter/Wizard frenzy or the Rings/Hobbit frenzy or even the Force/Vader frenzy, although Lando WAS hot! But, boy, I’m telling you what! I sure get the Vampire/Cullen frenzy! Can’t get enough of it!
Can anybody relate?
