As many of you know, STY and I were recently contacted by CNN to do a piece on "older women" who are bat-shit crazy about Twilight. Ahem. I don't think they put it as bluntly as that but whatever.
CNN was very nice to us. They could have really thrown us under the bus but... they got it [and us] and we are so happy that finally someone has written an article that doesn't paint us all as crazy pudges with limited mental capacity who wear muumuus while eating bon bons and lamenting over the fact that our husbands do not look exactly like Robert Pattinson.Or Edward. Or that they don't sparkle...
Anyway, because I was all excited that I was in a paper [fiiine, it was online but paper sounds better] and it's not because I did something illegal I sent that shit to my folks.
I mean, it's not every day I get to be like "Hey, Mommy (not a)Jerkface, check out this interview that STY and I did and I TOTALLY never said fuck, vagina or poop!! Not even once!! Now, where the fuck is my gold star? WHERE IS IT?!"
I didn't get a gold star but I did get an email from Mommy (not a)Jerkface...
Read the CNN article today . . . well done . . . bravo!!! Your comments (and STY's) were intelligent, mature and direct. I am so proud of you.
After reading the article and being the supportive Mom that I am, I ran out tonight and bought “Eclipse”. I’m trying really hard to understand why these books appeal to the mature woman (who are confident and all powerful ). I hate those words “older women” - it’s so negative... it conjures up the opposite which is “younger women” who are whiny and insecure... [this is a total jab at my teenage years, I think. Payback's a bitch.]
Ooh that sounds like “what’s her puss”! I’ve forgotten her name, you know--the twit from Twilight? Anyway, I digress. I will read Eclipse and hopefully this one will help me understand why “older women crave sparkly vampires”. I will keep you posted.
By the way, if this book really sucks, you owe me $7.99.
Love - Moo
First of all, it's pretty obvious that the apple does not fall far from the tree. Oh, and for those of you that don't know, M(na)J has some very "strong" feelings about Bella... and none of them are good.
Which reminds me... Since there are probably a few people who read the article and came over here to lurk and possibly be totally freaking horrified we figured we'd be nice and provide links to some of the posts we consider our favorites. Hope you enjoy.
We've got Twitarded confessionals AND the best readers. Ever.

STY and I also recently did an interview with the Washington Post and I know quite a few of you were interviewed as well or at least had the opportunity to connect with the reporter (who thinks our readers are "amazing" btw - natch!). As soon as the article comes out we will post a link to it on Twitarded. We are very excited to hear what you all had to say!
Annnnd now I need to get back to trolling the interwebs for Robert Pattinson pictures...
