In the run-up to the release of
Let me ask the most basic question:
Really. Think about it... Why do you love Twilight??? At some point, it became clear to me that I don't have a readily-available, articulate response to that seemingly simple question, despite the fact that I have pretty much turned my life upside-down for Twilight over the course of the last eleven months, and don't see said life being up-ended any time in the near future. Apparently, "just because" isn't sufficient, nor is "I don't know why I love it but I do so just read the fucking books and you'll love it, too."
I could go on for a while about how I've been trying - unsuccessfully - to come up with an answer that fully encompasses why I love the entire saga, but I won't... I already know that I don't have a great response and that a little more contemplating is in order. Just when I thought I couldn't possibly spend any more time on Twilight than I already do... Well, there you go...
So what do you think??? Do you have your Twilight house in sufficient order to know exactly what it is that makes you live and breath it 24/7? JJ and I need to hear from you! Clearly, we've both come to terms with our Twilight obsession, but I can't say for sure that we truly understand it - or can relate what we feel to other people - even now. Who knew?!
P.S. The reporter we spoke to at The Washington Post - Monica Hesse (a Twilight fan herself - yay!) - is writing a piece specifically on how people have been blindsided by their Twilight obsession... She would love to hear from some of our [ahem] mature readers who, despite initial reserve or outright resistance, found themselves falling helplessly down the Twilight rabbit hole (we know you are out there - you tell us...things). If you were later arrivals on the Twilight scene, all the better for her article. If you have a story to tell and are ok with the possibility of your full name appearing in print, drop her a line - asap! - at HesseM@washpost.com. Tell her Twitarded sent you!
P.P.S. We are extremely grateful and thankful for all of the donations we have received for the Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation fundraiser/Dinner With Peter Facinelli auction! Um, but we're going to need the donations to keep coming if we want to win it! Do you have any idea how much dinner for four costs in NYC without a celebrity guest to sweeten the pot?! I am in the process of hitting up everyone I know for a few bucks - we can make this happen!!! If you haven't donated yet and want to, click on the link below! PFach will thank you someday... really! We'll be gentle...
