I am currently reading “Twilight” by Stephanie Myers, and hoping I finish it before the movie comes out. Not that I’m going to race to the theater and camp out to be the first person to see the movie, but I would like to finish the story before it’s splashed all over the place any more than it already will be.
My daughter got the series from her room mate and passed the along to me. I was not in a rush to read them until a friend said she’s zipped through the whole series after being urged to by her mother. Then I began hearing some of the kids I work with talking about it as well. Just like I did with Harry Potter, I decided to take the plunge and see what everyone was yammering about.
The story has been good so far, and I’m about halfway through the book, but I wouldn’t be giving a darn thing away if I tell you that one of the main characters is supposed to be a vampire. In one part they refer to the family of vampires as “the cold ones”. As soon as I read that I began to get an inkling of fear.
I’m constantly cold. My hands are blue, like ice cubes. People cringe from me when I go to touch them. But unlike the lightning fast ability to move, my movements are a bit more slow. However, compare my movements and the amount I get done in a day to most of the people I know, and I bet I’m whizzing along in double time!!
The vampires in this book choose to dine on wildlife rather than humans…. hey! me too!! I’ll take a nice bison steak on the juicy red side any time of the day over humans!
The vampires don’t sleep. Have you ever noticed the time stamp on most of my blogs? I don’t sleep much either.
The vampires are iridescent. Ok, with a little glitter powder I can do that too… or if I just don’t go outside to soak up any rays for a few months, I’d be so white that I’d glow too!!
Yikes!! Have I been a vampire all this time and not realized it???
Then I remembered that I hadn’t taken my thyroid meds in a few days because I forgot to pick up the prescription, hehehehe… I sure am glad I’m only ingesting dessicated bovine thyroid and not something disgusting like human blood!
