It's the eve of Twilight, the movie, and my Maude has absolutely driven me CRAZY this last week. Now, don't get me wrong, I adore the fact that this book has gotten teens to pick up books in general, stop texting and start reading, but seriously??? No, really, seriously?? It was ok, it was entertaining, perfect for the genre it was written for. But these nutsy Twilight moms???? What on earth is that all about? There are old ladies, yeah, that means they are my age, drooling over this fictional character, who, in my opinion doesn't have a tenth of the depth of Mr. Darcy. But, that's a whole other ball game. Well, I guess it's not really, you see Mr. Darcy was written I think, (and humor myself) for the more mature mind. And really, Edward...really? So, my question is, are there honestly that many middle aged, miserably married, longing for the teenage twitters of years gone by women??? Apparently so. It has been my finding (yes it was a very extensive research project-not) that the women (and that's what we really are ladies, grown women)who didn't fall deeply in love with Edward and said books, are educated, well read, and pretty happy. (of course I found that, since I fit into that group.) But that's just me. All the rest of you...well you seem a bit unhinged to me. It's terribly odd. And that, my now much offended friends, is what drives me batty about Twilight.
That being said, I will let you know if the movie is better than the book (I think it will be) because I am taking Maude tomorrow night. Pray for any crazy Twilight Moms that I may encounter, and maybe, just maybe I will hold my tongue and only smile sadly at them. :)
