They Got Me!


twilightI had avoided the entire Twilight hysteria for good reason – I knew that I would get sucked in to this mystical world that Stephenie Meyer had created and I wouldn’t be able to leave it behind and go back to my real world without feeling a sense of loss. A loss that comes with a mystical world where young love blossoms and things always seem to just work out the way you want them to. A world of fantasy that leaves you with pangs for that initial feeling of falling in love. I had avoided Twilight for these reasons – well that and perhaps because I didn’t want to be swept in to the general teeny-bopper category that obsess over the film. But it was today that they finally got me. As I walked in to the Cardio Theater at the gym I saw the familiar murky setting, the cloudy atmosphere on the screen and the familiar faces – I was sucked in.

For 40 minutes I ran the elliptical not daring to tear my eyes from the screen and when my time was finished I was torn, I wanted to finish the film but there was no way I could survive another hour of the gym and so I reluctantly left. As I sit now at my desk I am left wondering what happened with those strange vampires or whatever they were that showed up at the baseball game, what happened to Bella…but most of all, how could I let this happen! I am not one of ‘them,’ the people who got sucked in to this dark fairytale that almost makes your soul ache because fantasy is always so much better than reality.

I thought I’d be angry that I got sucked in, I thought I’d at least pretend that I hated it to save face…but I didn’t, I told Buzz that I’d liked it and that I wanted to finish the film soon. I’m not sure that I fall in to the crazed teeny-bopper subsection of fans, nor the housewives who drool over Edward Cullen (he is a tad effeminate for my taste…although he is sort of cute…) but I fall somewhere in the realm of contentment and wonder.

    ahhh I am so sorry. The books killed me – waste of my life. They aren’t that bad though just so full of cliches. Love the movie though and can’t wait for New Moon ๐Ÿ™‚
