"just saw Stephenie on Oprah, where there was a teaser stating she would specify if Midnight Sun would ever be finished and published, but I was pulled away for a few short moments in which she probably gave her answer. Anyone catch it?"

Love to read!
I love to be part of a bigger picture--hence, I'll join clubs and rallies, etc., if my life permits it.
When Did You First Read Twilight (year) and how many times have you read a Twilight Book (total)?
My BlogHer roommate mailed me her copy of "Twilight" a couple months ago (Sept. 09) and I've been hooked ever since!
So far, I've only gotten through the first three books once each...waiting to borrow the fourth one. But I expect to read them again if I get the set for Christmas.
Team Edward or Team Jacob? Why?
Team Edward. There was never a doubt. While Jake is cute, sweet, and his enthusiasm is incredibly contagious, I prefer Edwards calmer, more mature demeanor. I love his century of wisdom and how he continues to try to put Bella first; that his love for her is such that he could never live with himself should he hurt her. And I love his interactions with his family...maybe because it reminds me of my own a little. But Jacob's (temporary) teenage antics and way he handles things just doesn't suit me right. But maybe because I'm in my early 30s; ten years ago I might've preferred Jake because of his youthfulness.
Which Character Are You Most Like?
I would have to say Alice. While I'm not as daring as her in the fashion department, and when I'm not bogged down by work, I have a pretty bubbly and friendly attitude, and always want to help someone in need.
I hate to say the "Twilight" series since I only just started reading them, but it's been quite a while since I got so entrenched in any book like this. I can really identify with all of Meyer's characters--they're so real.
I also really enjoy the Harry Potter series. Again, I think it's because Rowling takes special pains to let you in on each character. Even minor characters have such neat little details that other authors tend to leave out.
The Kay Scarpetta novels (Patricia Cornwell), especially the earlier ones are also favorites.
Beyond that, no other novels come to mind, however, I am a big fan of Mark Levin's "Liberty and Tyranny: A Conservative Manifesto"...his attention to details and dates and such is incredibly, as well as his knowledge of all things US Constitution. His writing style is still easy to read, even if the subject matter is less than easy to sit through; I never once felt as if I was reading a textbook, like I do with so many other political books.
What is Your Favorite Music
My favorite varies across the spectrum. I like just about anything that can get me up and moving but dont' care too much for most techno. It needs to be something fun and with a driving beat.
I also enjoy artists with in-depth lyrics...Peter Gabriel, Tori Amos, and some others that my brain fails to tell me at the moment. Some other favs are Foo Fighters, U2, Radiohead, Aerosmith, Maroon 5....
Favorite Movies, TV Shows, Games:
Movies: Oscar, Return to Me, Harry Potter Series, Narnia Series
TV Shows: Grey's Anatomy, Criminal Minds, Heroes, Chuck, Bones, House, The Closer, Saving Grace
Games: I've got a 2yr old and 5 yr old...so I guess Hungry Hungry Hippos
don't really have any...but this quote from "Eclipse" had me laughing for a solid five minutes (this is a paraphrase since I don't have the book with me at the moment):
"Did you fall again, Bella?" asked Emmet
"No, I punched a werewolf" I answered.
