Life is good in general.

  • Work is good.
  • No love life to speak of but I have some awesome crushes and that’s all I can handle right now.
  • I’m catching up on Castle (Hi Nathan! I’ve missed you.)
  • I have great friends.
  • I’m excited for E-Fabulous who is starting her career change. So proud!

I’m looking forward to:

  • My trip to IL for cousin Jennifer’s wedding.
  • My trip to IL for the family reunion (wish me luck, I’m still working this one out).
  • The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner! (or Midnight Sun, whichever comes out first. LOL)
  • The Eclipse movie (leg hitch and tent scene here we come!)
  • The next Sookie Stackhouse book.
  • True Blood!
  • The next A Song of Ice and Fire book (please GRRM?!?)
  • Make It Monday (even those E-Fabulous and I had dinner last night, sorta, and will have dinner again tonight).

Thanks to StephenieMeyer.com and Caroolee7 I have seen the New Moon trailer. Thank you, really!

Ok, I think my head has stopped spinning and I’ve cleaned up enough of the pea soup that to post about this choice. *deep breath* Here I go.

To be clear, we are talking about David Slade, not David Spade.

Hello World! It’s official. I’ve been blogging for a year as of today. It’s been a crazy ride. At  first I didn’t really know what to do, but quickly caught on that if I post about Twilight, I get a ton of views. (Thank you Stephenie Meyer!) My following is steadily growing. As of this minute I’ve had 14,315 views, most of them related to either Luke Grimes or the New Moon casting call in Phoenix that I crashed, with a bit of ‘Bella Swan Porn’ thrown in for good measure.

Thank you all for continuing to show up. I can hardly wait to see what the next year has in store. As I said last year: Since this is posting after midnight somewhere, Happy Earth Day.

It always amazes me when people link back to my blog. Just when I think no one is really reading, someone will like something I wrote enough to recommend it to others. It’s always nice. Not only did Twilight Blogs link to my blog, they listed me as Source 2. Their subject is the Phoenix New Moon Casting Call I posted about this weekend. I had fun taking that little fact finding trip. Little did I know it would be an actual scoop. Thanks again, everyone, for your interest.

Squidoo has a lot to say about auditions and production too.

Stephen King made his opinion of Stephenie Meyer’s writing quite clear.  You can follow that link for the whole story. I just want to comment on this:

Attempting to explain the enormous success of Meyer’s novels, King speculated that Twilighters simply aren’t yet ready for a depiction of real, adult romance: “It’s exciting and it’s thrilling and it’s not particularly threatening, because they’re not overtly sexual. A lot of the physical side of it is conveyed in things like the vampire will touch her forearm or run a hand over skin, and she just flushes all hot and cold. And for girls, that’s a shorthand for all the feelings that they’re not ready to deal with yet.”

I wonder if Mr. King knows about Cougars and Twilight Moms. There are a lot of us out there. I’m 38, and I assure you I’ve been ready to deal with those feelings for quite some time. Romance and sexual tension are sexy. I don’t think it matters what age you are. Is it light reading? Sure. It’s wonderfully light and easy to read. That’s what I love about Ms. Meyer’s style. Is it poorly written? That’s debatable. You’d have to define poorly written. I’ll take a writer that is not so technically proficient but can tell a story over a textbook writer anyday. For the record, I’m not calling Mr. King a textbook writer. I’ve never read anything he’s written, except reviews like this, so I couldn’t really say. I have read the Twilight Saga four times though.
