I am so tired. Today was the first day I’ve been to work after having 6 days off and I am bloody knackered! I have the next two days off and then back to work Friday and then the weekend before it’s back to work for good. To say I’m not looking forward to work is a bit of an understatement right now. Not because I don’t like it, but because I’d much rather be doing other things. Any other things.
So I’m sitting here, at 6pm, attempting not to fall asleep at my keyboard because I am so tired. I’ve spent god knows how long today surfing all things Twilight related (I said I was obsessed!). I have not been this obsessed with something in a very, very long time. I don’t know exactly what it is about the series that has completely and utterly pulled me in, but here I am.
I only first came across any mention of the books two or three months ago. I had no idea what it was about, mind you, and did a quick google to find they were books about a vampire and a girl. I was interested, but not so much that I ran out to buy any straight away. Then a month or so later I came across someone’s blog and he had reviewed them. That made me more interested, but still I kept my distance. Until my husband spotted the first book in the WH Smith in Edinburgh airport before we flew home. I bought it then and there and read it all the way home and finished it the next day.
Thankfully the film came out the following Friday so we saw it that weekend. Then in the book shop afterward hubby wouldn’t let me buy the others! I hoped that it was because he had gotten them for me for Christmas. Thankfully, I was right. I started New Moon that morning and finished Breaking Dawn at 2pm the following Sunday. I didn’t go to bed Saturday night. I will admit the only other books I’ve been so fervent about was the Harry Potter series, possibly some Anne Rice as well but not on this great a scale.
I can’t work it out just yet. Edward Cullen is… perfect. Romantic, unfailingly virtuous at times and maddeningly passionate. Now, no one can ever live up to this character, which is even more maddening. And due to the film, Rob Pattinson is now the object of my affection (and fantasies (second only to my wonderful (but not Edward Cullen) husband)).
Maddening. Yes. All those parentheses!
