I went and saw the movie Twilight last night, it's caught hell from the critics, but I loved it, so did my good friend who was with me. The movie is based on the first book of an amazing series by Stephanie Meyers. It's about a young girl who moves to the pacific northwest and falls in love with a vampire, yes it's hokey! Sometimes it's fun to lose yourself in the impossible, to fall in love with a perfect being that we all know doesn't exist. Whether you're 13 or 43, trust me, you will fall in love with Edward Cullen. He's the ultimate dream guy, good looking, protective, funny and completely and totally unreal!! I think that's why I got so into these books; it gave me a chance to escape reality without the use of mind altering substances. I'm that woman who still loves Disneyland and fairy tales, who can completely lose herself in a good book. I finished all 4 of these books within 2 weeks. I would read until the wee hours of the morning, bring the book to work and read all through my lunch break. I now have to read them all again. this is one of those things that you just don't want to end!! It's fun to dream, I think that it's wonderful to still have fun with things like this, vampire love stories :) I will probably go see the movie again, and of course buy the DVD as soon as it comes out. As I write this, my perfectly wonderful boyfriend is asleep on the couch and I find myself wishing that he was a vampire!! Not really of course. He's fantastic... But in the undying words of Cyndi Lauper, "Girls just wanna have fun" And that's what these books, this movie, was. A chance for this girl to have fun, a chance to escape the nasty times that we are living in and a chance to believe the impossible... If only for a few hours!
