I've got a confession to make...
In honor of the midnight release of the Twilight dvd, I am going to let the bat out of the coffin and fess up to something you may not know about me.
I love Vampire Chick Lit.
I can already hear some of your brains wrapping around the weirdness of me reading Vampire love stories. It's true...I love them.
I think the roots of my love began for me in my youth watching this show...
The vampire chick lit marathon started last year at the library. There was this super hottie with shades hiding in the dark recesses of the fiction area. I felt this weird vibe that he wanted to bite me. I tried to get away but he managed to pop up wherever I was headed! Finally, he captured me in the cookbook section (stop snorting, Chilly), tilted my head back, fangs popped out and then...
Ok, so I'm making that up. (hee hee hee) Actually, I was waiting for my kids to choose their books when the library lady plopped down a stack of books to put away. On top of the stack was "UnDead and UnWed" by MaryJanice Davidson. The cover looked cute. (I am a big believer in judging a book by it's cover.) I grabbed it (and the kids) and off we went. I started reading it that afternoon and was hooked on the story of Betsy Taylor from that moment on. (MaryJanice, in the very tiny chance that you may someday read my little bloggy, I just want to say I love you and WHEN IS THE NEXT UNDEAD BOOK COMING OUT???)
I read all the UnDead books over the summer and then came....Twilight. I was mush from the moment I began it. I read the whole series and couldn't wait to see the film. I wasn't able to see it at the theater so imagine how excited I am for midnight to arrive tonight! (I will NOT be in line at midnight! I will pick my copy up tomorrow morning! lol!)
Just recently, my sweet little sister got me hooked on the Sookie Stackhouse series by Charlaine Harris which is now the HBO series "True Blood." I read every book and want more, Charlaine! Do you hear me? MORE!
So there you have it...I am a "sucker" for vampire chick lit (literature).
And listen Chilly, don't sit there and judge me...you know you love the old re-runs of "The Kindred." (Does anyone remember the names of the Vampire groups from this series?)
While we are on the subject of vampires, I have noticed that Catherine (my 6 yr old daughter) does have some very vampiric tendencies.....hmmm...
For instance, vampires are very beautiful creatures that like to dress elegantly and can sneak up on you very quietly. (that does sound like her...)
They also like to use Jedi mind tricks to convince you to do their bidding...(see how creepy this is getting?????)
They have superhuman strength (oh no...there was that time when Cat lifted up the end of her toddler bed to help me carry it...and she does like to lift my weights....uh...oh.....)
She also fries up like a lobster if she's near sunlight....yikes!
I guess I should have paid closer attention when at age 3 she would run around the house saying, "I suck your blood! I suck your blood!"
I better warn Connor....Cat has been wearing her shades during the day with alarming frequency...I'm off to fashion a necklace out of garlic cloves...Cat will be up soon.....
