Yes, the ticker is about to show 3 more days till Breaking Dawn comes out, and I'm so excited and anxious!!!! I've been reading Twilight these last couple of days, and now I'm in New Moon. Let's see if I can make it by Friday. I want to have all the books re-read. I think the reason I'm so excited is because after Harry Potter 7, that July 21st by 6 in the morning, I had already finished it, and I felt this emptiness in my heart. No more waiting for a HP to come out, the count downs, the release parties, the dressing up were all over. But I found this new saga, a wonderful love story, and being the romantic that I am, I fell in love with it! Notice that I said it, meaning the story, and not HIM, which could mean Edward or Jacob. I was just
on the phone with Jeff, and our conversation always gravitates to what I'm reading that day. I must have been talking about Twilight forever, but just now, he realizes Edward is a vampire. "A vampire?!" He shrieked, "I thought you were terrified of vampires!" And the funny thing is, I am. When I was little I watched my share of scary shows, and I was at the same time fascinated by and terrified of vampires. I remember making sure I closed the shutters every day before it was dark outside, and sleeping with my hands over my neck (as if that would have stopped a vampire, ha!) to deter any attacks. By the time I was in my teens, I was so afraid of vampires that I couldn't even watch Buffy or Angel. But now, it's different. Edward is a good vampire, and even though in the story there are bad vampires (the regular kind, I should say), I tend to ignore them. When we were in Missouri I read "The Historian" which is another story about a bad vampire, Dracula, in fact. That one was very eerie, but in some parts (a lot actually) it was just so boring that it took all the suspense away!
For now, I'm just pouring over the fan sites, getting excited with every one's obsessions. I keep wondering what Stephenie Meyer is feeling right now, what she's thinking. I'd be collapsed from the emotion. Yes, that's me, no middle ground. I'd be floored with the fear, the happiness, anxiety and relief.
I'm still debating about what I'll do on Friday. I'm planning on going to the Barnes and Noble release party and taking my Swan Princess, to have a girls night out. We'll see. My Gorgeous Boy will be such a perfect Edward when he grows up. He's beautiful, sensitive, musical, and he loves to cook. I hope when it's his turn to find his "Bella" she'll be a worthy one.
I know, I've been all over the place with this post, but I'm wound up, in case you haven't noticed. I just wanted to document these feelings because last year for Harry Potter I didn't. I had all this excitement, but like I said, when I finished the book so fast, I didn't have anything else to look forward to. This time it will be different. And one last thing, I won't even flip to the last page to see who's still alive. Doing that really ruined my experience with Harry, I'll never do that again.
