Okay, okay! I'll read it!

I was planning on NOT jumping on the Twilight bandwagon even though it seemed that all of you have read it and now seen the movie and RAVED over it like it was the greatest thing since sliced bread (I watched Annie last weekend to get that one). I mean, I'm a rebel, you know? I like to go against the odds. Mom mom always asked me, if everyone jumped off a bridge, would you? NO I WOULDN'T!



Well, I guess in this case, I was peer pressured into jumping off that bridge. Because my great and wonderful neighbors lent me a copy of their beloved Twilight with all the great reviews about this totally awesome Edward dude. I have had the book sitting next to my bed for three days and, well.... I can't take it anymore! I HAVE to read it. Yeah, I'm so behind the rest of you groupies and I usually don't read a book once the movie comes out because... well... it's kinda redundant. But today, as I sit staring at the cover of the book, the words on the inside just keep calling me and begging me to open to the first page.



So here I go. But you know what? I'm going in with skepticism and if I don't like it after the first 3 chapters or so, I'm blaming each and every one of you! Because now, after reading all of your post on how great it is, I expect a LOT! So it better be good!

Honest to goodness...I said the SAME thing! I even blogged about how I was going to hold the entire internet accountable if I thought is sucked!

But....it didn't. :D

Enjoy!!

Thanks for the encouragement on my blog about my business. I saw your teapot cake you made for your daughter's birthday....you are talented! You'll have to give me a tutorial on how to make that!

I think I'm also the only person in the world who hasn't read the Twilight books yet! My best friend is all into it. Let us know how they turn out!

I'm curious to hear what you think. I'm one of the folks who saw the movie and didn't read the book. Fwiw, I thought the movie was a bit stinky:P
Hey, thanks for your nwdesignsit.com suggestion. I think I might use it:)

DRINK THE KOOL AID! LOL That is my joke around here, I got my X SIL to read it and she talked her best friend, Amanda, into it and boy Amanda was NOT going to enjoy it, she just wasn't "into it"...that chick has now seen the movie THREE TIMES, read all of the books, found other places for us to go see the movie (a different type of venue)....and well, she's hooked! LOL She even told her hubby the other night in the head of passion to bite her neck, HAHAHAHAHA
