Twilight is my new obsession

on my wallSo I went to see Twilight on the cinema, and - just like I said - I loved it! I loved it enough to go see it no less than 4 times! Yes, I know, I can’t really believe it either, but it’s true. I’ve seen it 4 times and I still can’t wait to get it on DVD. I’ve never been to see the same movie on the cinema more then once - never in my whole life. It’s weird.. it’s a first.

Well, since I loved the movie so much, I decided to read the books. In one week I had finished all four (3 in swedish and Breaking Dawn in english since it hasn’t been translated yet). Then I re-read the 3 first in swedish and now I’ve started re-reading them all from the start in English. They are better in their original language I think.

I just fell in love with the whole story and I really wish that Stephenie Meyer could finish Midnight Sun and release it.

My sister is reading them all as well and she keeps telling me that I’m so much like Bella. Maybe that’s why I like the books so much - I can really relate to her. Only, I wish I had more of her good qualities and less of her bad ones. Cause the whole clumsy, pale, shy-thing I’ve got. But put me in a kitchen and you’ll be happy if the kitchen makes it out of the experience alive. I even broke my kitchen fan!

Anyways, I’ve got a couple of Twilight-things to make sure that noone miss my huge addiction when they enter my place. For starters I bought the “Twilight Saga Box” with all four books in English.

It also included some collectors cards or something. Big cards with the book-cover images on. I decided to frame them and put them up on my wall next to my bed.

After that I turned to my loyal friend Ebay to search for Twilight goodies. They have all sort of things there. Like replicas of the Cullen familys jewellry.

In the movies they have added something that isn’t included in the books. A family crest for the Cullens. Every member of the family wears this crest as a piece of jewellry. Carlisle has a ring, Esme a bracelet, Rosalie a necklace, Emmet, Jasper & Edward a leather bracelet and Alice a choker.

I decided to get the one thing that is connected in the way that it has the Cullen crest, but it isn’t worn by anyone in the movie. A locket.

I simply love it!

After that I had to have Bellas bracelet. Not any of the ones she wore in the movie, but the one from the books. If you’ve read Twilight, you know what I’m talking about.

Once again I turned to Ebay, but this time I didn’t find anything I liked, so I made my own version. The bracelet is in silver as well as the clasps on the charms. The wolf isn’t in wood, but in stone. It’s brown stone though, so it sort of resembles wood, right?

So… have you read Twilight? Any fanpires among my readers?

How do I do it?

Is there some way to turn off clumsiness? Ok, it’s good that I can prolong people’s lifes by having them laugh at me, but there is a point where “ouch… ouch… ouch!“ just doesn’t include “haha”. I haven’t reached it yet, (actually I’m often the one laughing the loudest and hardest) but I’m starting to think I should be nearing it soon.

Today I got a text telling me about a meeting at my 2nd work, just as I finished my day at my 1st work. I went, but looking back I might have done better staying home. Then again.. it’s me, so you never know. I can understand how my sister laughed so hard when reading what Edward said to Bella in the Twilight series: “Are you referring to the fact that you can’t walk across a flat, stable surface without finding something to trip over?” and then turned and said to me “Ellen, you are so much like Bella!”

To start my day I went to work with three workmates. All three of them walked gracefully down a hill on their way to work so I decided to follow their shorter path and not going the longer (safer) path. Well, I’m not graceful. I fell real hard on my butt (it’s still aching like crazy). And to get up I needed to turn over on my knees. All this was done in the dark but I quickly realised I had fallen in some real wet mud! My jeans are now more brown then blue and the bag is…. oh, my poor poor bag! *cries*

I should have turned and got back home as quickly as possible. There is no such thing as “the lightning doesn’t strike twice”!

At work we played lasergame and by some magic I manage to stay on my feet and even get in a few hits on the guys from the other team. Well, don’t think that made me safe. When we got out one of the guys missed the table and hit my face with his sweaty team shirt. - Although the smile on his face and his quick departure makes me wonder if it may not have been as unintentional as I hope.

I hoped my bad luck had ended by then, but no!

I needed to sign some papers in the office and while going in I manage to trip over the threshold, fly into a chair that hit my boss so she went flying into the wall. I simply lay my head on the chair and gave up as the laughters burst out all around me.

Somehow I managed to get home without more accidents, but the day isn’t over yet, so I won’t get my hopes up. Instead I’ll go back to my new obsession; Twilight. I’m on book #4 “breaking dawn” now. I wish I could turn into a graceful vampire. Bellas description of Alice’s grace always makes me green with envy. To bad stories ends with the book. I’d like a fairytale ending of my own.

Preferrably one without bruises.

Twilight

I just happened to be walking by the tele when the Twilight-trailer started playing. I just froze. I need to see that movie! Everything in the trailer just screamed that I would love it!

I threw myself on the phone to call my sister and ask if she wanted to go see it with me. Unfortunatelly she can’t afford it until sometime after the 25th so I’ll have to wait. But still, I will se it!

I haven’t read the book, but believe me, now I will. And Paramore being on the soundtrack is a nice bonus.
