Ode to lost innocense.

Ok so sadly I really really didn’t like Twilight.
I haven’t read the books, but the movie did nothing for me at all. I didn’t think it was wonderful, romantic or dreamy. Not like the steam between Buffy and Angel, or even Buffy and Spike. Why do I always find myself comparing everything to Buffy haha. I am just madly in love with that series.
Anyhow, ya Twilight inspired nothing in me at all. Outside it’s not great acting it has a plot full of holes.  Again maybe the books answer all these questions, all these plot holes. All I kept thinking was "It’s never going to work losers, do you not think your parent’s won’t notice he doesn’t age, do you not think the entire community you live in will not notice he never ages?..or do you plan on just moving every couple of years…and eventually, people will just think it’s gross when she is 65 and he is still 17 haha. Also, it’s still in the air if vampires can even have sex. Dave says they orgasm glitter hahaha. WTF was up with the glitter, vampires DO NOT glitter in the sunlight, they burn. Duh!!

The ode to lost innocense title relates to the fact that I once, as a silly teenage girl probably would have liked this, now with life experience behind me, I am just way to rational. The sexiest man to me is one who will provide for me and my family, do half the chores, be an excellent parent to our children and still be able to please me in bed a few times a week. Perfect dream man right there.

“Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance you must keep moving.” — Albert Einstein. When it feels like your world has been shattered, and you have reached rock bottom, you must make a choice: Stay where you are and fade away, or keep moving forward. Thankfully I chose to move forward and was blessed with the two most wonderful children after the death of my first in early labor. Things are looking up.

  1. I totally agree with your review of Twilight. Total cheese. So disappointing!

  2. I heard they have sex in the 4th or 5th (?) book, but that’s WAY too long to wait for sex, imo, so I will not read/ see them.
    (And the glittering vampires pisses me OFF b/c you just can’t go around breaking long-established rules like that… if your vamps are day walkers, there needs to be a REASON and it better fucking not be glitter!)
    (I ❤ vampires…)

    • I also heart vampires, which why I disliked the damn glitter thing as well. Oh no’s I can’t go out in direct sunlight, no because I will catch fire but because I will glitter?? Ya exactly, messing with years of well established rules. I like some of how they portayed the vampire’s but some of it was just way to over the top for me.

  3. The books really are better. I tried getting my husband into it by having him watch the movie. He just makes fun of it now instead of being halfway interested in reading them.

    • The movie is laughworthy.
      An emo chick get’s stalked by an emo guy, finds out he is a vampire and the live happily ever after??
      I did like the baseball scene though hahah.

  4. a-ha, but you must read the books to really see that those plot holes don’t really exist 😉 I’ve read all the books and I’ve seen the movie a few times. Once you’ve read the first couple of books, you’ll see things in the movie that make sense!

  5. I LOVED the movie because it had me cackling wildly throughout. Isn’t Edward like, the stereotypical “boyfriend you should avoid” type? Controlling, obsessive, just plain weird. I don’t get why people like him.

    • I know right, he follows her, takes all her time, and I would not find it amusing to turn around see some dude snuck into my room and then told me he did it all the time.
      Plus I was like how are you irrevocably in love with him, you just met him, It take me months to really fall in love with someone.
      Whatever, it’s just far stretched for me.

  6. I feel the same way Jaime. I watched Before Sunset and it just didn’t cut it for me, that whole romantic innocence, falling in love with a stranger thing. It’s so flighty and not at all practical!

  7. aw i wanna see this movie!
