I’ve succumbed...

...to the dark side. A million years after everyone else I know, I’m reading the first Twilight book. I’ve had absolutely no desire to read this series because fantasy of any sort really doesn’t appeal to me. Dragons, fairies, Star Trek, Star Wars, paranormal, vampires—whatever—I’ll take reality. But almost every single girl I work with is obsessed with these books, and they finally convinced the other skeptic (traitor) to read the first one. So when she finished, she plopped it on my desk and said, “Your turn.” Yes, I gave into peer pressure, and I’m about three chapters in now. The first ten pages were probably the worst ten pages ever written, but I persevered. I’m not totally impressed so far, but I’m no quitter, so I’ll probably have to finish the whole thing. Don’t worry, I’ll let you know what I think and whether or not I become seduced by Edward.

Don't fail me! There has to be someone else in the world who doesn't think Ed-vard hung the moon. Good luck . . .

Oh Em, quit being so melodramatic! haha. I love how you refer to Steph as a traitor. When you are finished you can read the book from Edward's p.o.v. online. All tell you all about it at work next week. Have a luxury long weekend.
