Musings #2

Recently, my fall break decided to spring itself upon me. Or rather, fall upon me. Spring break springs upon me. My bad. There was a moment there where I was unsure if it would be a good fall break, but like all breaks, this one was rather nice. Having two little adoring sisters at home helps.

I spent a lot of time driving here and there and everywhere. I spent a teensy bit of time with just about everyone. Except for Grace, that is. Grace I spent the most time with, simply because we were in the car for six hours together, at least. I'm shocked she didn't comment more on my driving. You shouldn't either.

Over fall break, I tried vainly to pick up New Moon, by Stephanie Meyer, for those of you who are constantly stuck in the closet. It's not the first time I've read it. In fact, it's the third. I own all four books, and can pick them up at leisure. I had just finished Twilight for the third time and decided that picking up New Moon (because that's the next book) wouldn't be a bad thing. I read maybe two chapters. All of them during the depressing part of the book. Now, you're going to think that I'm a little crazy, but I, and I think every girl that has had a relationship that didn't work (doesn't have to be with a boyfriend), can relate to Bella during this book. The feelings of inadequacy. Knowing that maybe if you'd been more interesting or beautiful or something maybe it would have worked. Stephanie Meyer makes the ending beautiful, telling the readers that Edward telling Bella that he didn't want her was "the blackest kind of hypocrisy." I love it.

Needless to say, I've been getting increasingly excited over Twilight, the books and the movie. My only hope is that the movie actually does it justice. I've read a lot of interviews where the actors say that they think the movie does do it justice, but I almost doubt that. Eh, call me a sceptic.

Look at that, I've managed to tangent. I didn't think this post was going to be about twilight, or that it wasn't going to be all about fall break. huh. Well, make the best of it. If you will, I will. Good think I waited till the last sentence to think up a title for this post.

  2. Sorry. ^That^ was me.

    Anyway, what you said about New Moon: agreed. I haven't read the depressing parts since the first time I did in June. I've read other parts more than once, but those chapters I haven't read again. Maybe sometime down the road I will...

    I'm glad you had a nice break. :-)




    In other news, the word verification for this post is "bednest".

  4. I actually have pretty high hopes for the movie. :) I'm expecting to be impressed. Who knows, maybe it'll even be one of the rare cases when I like the movie better than the book.

    And thanks for making me crave New Moon when I can't have it!!!! *sniffle* Oh well... first thing when I get home is get chocolate, get coffee, and get Twilight. :P

  5. Thanks Shannon. Sorry Joy... KB, that's weird... o.0
