Its time to put the book down.

So I am reading the Twighlight Series by Stephenie Meyer, just finished the second book. For those of you who don't know anything about the books, its basically about two teenagers, one is a vampire, the other human, who desperately love each other. Its their story, but the other characters play a major role in the books too, some are vampires, some are humans, some are werewolves....

Its SO not my kind of book. I am not a sci-fi reader at all, much to my family's horror. I think I was the only one from my father's side of the family that did not inherit the sci-fi gene. I think it is all pretty much ridiculous (sorry fam!). So there is no other explanation as to why I am completely intrigued in this series. The writing reminds me of my sister's way of writing, maybe that's why, I don't know. But anyway, I am really in to them.

Which brings me to this point. Last night, I cut myself a little bit, no more than a paper-cut. But my first reaction was of panic, because I didn't want to attract thirsy vampires. And then I realized that I was at home, in the real world. And then I realized that I am a big ole' nerd.

You are too funny! You are also the first person to finally explain this whole series to me. I'm not sure if I would like it or not?

lol... when I was about, oh, 17 or so, I was reading a good vampire story... can't remember now which one it was... but I do remember getting it into my head late that night that one of your dad's friends, Steve Spradlin, was a vampire, and I went to bed that night thinking to myself, "they can't come in unless you invite them... they can't come in unless you invite them... "

Sugar, you're just in denial. All the family knows it. For years it was "cute", but we're all getting a bit concerned now. If you suppress it too long, then when it comes out it the swing can be very intense. You are approaching that point where your family vacations are all going to coincide with "trekkie" conventions.
I see spock ears in your future.
