5 Hours, 42 Minutes and 20, 19, 18, 17. . . seconds until NEW MOON!


New Moon Movie and Twilight News


FINALLY! Last year while attending a workshop, the instructional specialist veered off topic and began discussing the book Twilight. She was about the 50th person that told me I MUST read Twilight! The following Saturday I found myself wandering around Wal-Mart, and I happened upon the Twilight display. Only one book remained! I snatched it up and ran to the register with the rest of my purchases.

So, that night I crawled into bed, turned on Beethoven's Sonata #14 "Moonlight", threw caution to the wind and dove head first into my Twilight addiction. About three weeks later I finished the series! Yes, three weeks! Have you seen these books? Two of them contained over 500 pages. In some instance, I read a whole book in 2 or 3 days. The series rivaled that of CRACK (not that I have ever done crack or anything)!

At times I found myself at stoplights in the dark reading, while using my Blackberry as a flashlight. I finished the third book Eclipse in the parking lot of Borders. After I read the last page I threw the book down, dashed in the store to purchase Breaking Dawn (the final book), and read the first chapter before I left the parking lot. When I ran into the store I had a wild look in my eye and the salesperson probably thought I was INSANE! CRACK I tell ya! Sometimes I lost chunks of time as well as sleep.

So, next week during Thanksgiving Break I plan to see New Moon. I may even rock a Team Jacob shirt. Yes, Team Jacob. I always tend to go against the grain or the majority. I'm kinda like a rebel...well a rebel without a cause (lol). So what does this have to do with weight loss? Nothing. Well, not entirely nothing. Let me share my movie popcorn alternative with you

  1. Oh Yeah! Team Jacob rocks!! I was the same way, people were telling me I should read it and I was like whatever...I don't want to read some teen drama/romance/horror book. However, I did pick up Twightlight devoured the entire series in a few weeks. And Taylor Lautner...if I was 20 years younger!! Oh well!

    I'm itching to sneak and see it before you and pretend that I never saw it! LOL! Insane I know! I am so geeked. I've been trying not to watch too many specials about the movie so I don't find myself in a daze and sleep driving to the theater!
