It's time for more What I Learned This Week over at Musings of a Housewife. What did you learn this week?
This week I learned so much...about sparkly vampires.
First, a little background. My husband has always been a lover of all things vampire and/or zombie. That's to say that he was, until the sparkly vampires came along. You know what I'm talking about. Twilight. Vampires and adolescent hormones. My husband's worst nightmare. Now just bring out some touchy-feely zombies and his misery will be complete.
So the Twilight craze is going gangbusters, but I had yet to read any of the books. I have to admit that part of the reason I hadn't read them is because I'd feel like I was cheating on Harry. You know, Potter. I love Harry. But my bloggy friends can be very persuasive (read: pushy) so I decided I'd look into checking the book out from the library. I thought I'd have to wait forever to get a copy, but one became available less than a week after I requested it. So I brought it home.
And my husband's head exploded.
Okay, not really. But he has been eyeing me suspiciously since I started reading it. Hey, if he can be a scary vampire, I can be a sparkly one. So I read. I have to say that it was pretty good, too. Oh, I'm not saying it compares to Harry. But still, pretty good. I think I like sparkly vampires. I finished reading book 1 this morning then went online to my library's website to put a request in for book 2...
There are 75 people ahead of me on the waiting list.
I'm not that patient a person. I was left with no choice but to go buy New Moon. I think there are forces conspiring against me much in the way that a drug pusher would. Here - read the first book. It's easy to get. You'll like it... Then I get sucked (vampire reference duly noted) into it and BAM! I can't get the next one so easily. But they've got me. They know they do. And I have to buy more to support my habit. They're just evil that way. And not even in a sparkly way.
Now if you'll excuse me, I have sparkly vampires to tend to.
Still here? Then how about checking out the Life is Funny blog carnival? No sparkly vampires, but there is a cute little redhead with a sparkling personality.
