The Twilight Saga

::::::::::clears throat::::::::
Hi, My name is Cyndi and I have a problem.
I am a Twi-aholic
I am a 44 year old female reduced to a 15 year old girlie-girl.
Oh, I had the teen crushes, Donny Osmond, Luke Skywalker, Han Solo/ Indy.
I'm a teen from the 80's not to many manly men to choose from, men had longer hair than women and wore make up.
Billy Idol was a role model.
On I whim I picked up the DVD of Twilight. I was afraid I'd be missing a generations "star wars"
....OMG.....
I watched it through, ..then I watched again with the commentary on..then I watch all the extra's...then I went and bought all four books and started to read...took me three days...and I still haven't quite regained my focus.
I purchased the sound track. I downloaded it to my pc. I looked up the lyrics. I coped them so that I could sing along.
(and I really couldn't make out all that Rob P was singing)
I tricked my 22 year old son into watching it. I made him watch the making of sequences.
I've been accused of watching it 10 times already. I balk but truthfully It's been playing on repeat mode for a few days so It's way past 10!
I started reading the books over.

Where did this giggling little girl come from? I vaguely remember her from years past. Where has she been?

Bouts of giggling excitement would washed over me in waves so strong that I'd have to shut the book and evaluate the situation. That giggle...was tha me? Wasn't I just complaining about how old I feeling?

Thank you Stephenie Meyer for stirring the inner child in me.
Thank you Cathrine Hardwicke for bring your love of the book into your little film.
Thank you cast of Twilight for making me not only wish I was younger again but making me feel that way too.

Can I just tell you that I was smiling the entire time reading your blog because that is me in a nutshell as well. I am a 35-year-old woman married with an 11-year-old son, who has reduced herself to a page on here, and more things from Twilight than I had ever imagined myself getting into. I was at the store for the midnight release of the DVD. Again, I will be at the midnight showing of New Moon as well. Me and 6 of my friends are going. I wrangled 3 of my friends into the Twilight loop who used to laugh at me, and now we are laughing together because they are almost, not quite, as bad with it as I am. I totally agree with what you said about bringing the inner girl out again because that is how I felt when I read the books and get involved with this stuff. It is just surreal to even myself at times. One of the best comments on your blog was the 80s men. How true it is. I also was a teenager in high school during the 80s with the big hair on guys and girls, as well as makeup on both, and you are right there were slim pickings then. How funny to think back as I was reading your post and laughing through half of it. It is so nice to finally meet someone on here who is like me in regards to age and standing at this point in time. Rock on friend! I will continue to do the same!

OMG!!! I am exactly the same way! But only 29. I am so infatuated with this whole thing that it still gives me butterflies in my stomach every time I see a picture or start to read my books again. Even when I found this site and started blogging for the first time in my life. I've been sooooo consumed with my kids, husband and general life that I've never gotten hooked on any one thing cause I knew that there was never time. NOW, I make time! It is a great feeling to talk to others whom are crazy about this like I am. For petes sake, I even have a new moon pic as my wallpaper on my cell phone. LOVIN IT!!!!!!!!!!!
