I read an article the other day about Stephanie Meyer and how religion influenced her writing, and it was surprisingly not boring, so when I wandered into Borders looking for a book I had not read a dozen times, I was compelled to pick up "Twilight".
Six days later, I've read all three of the books twice, and I'm starting "Twilight" again.
God damn it, I have like, two posters and four poster abstracts and a lecture to write by Friday! I'm not supposed to be reading anything unless it mentions synchrotrons, metalloproteins, or Gaussian peak-fitting!
And I watched the trailer a little while ago. A couple of times. You know, just seven or eight... teen.
Can it be December yet?
I think the trailer broke my brain. I don't know about the casting -- Robert Pattinson doesn't really look like the Edward in my head, but he seems to play Edward very well. Very, very well. Kristen Stewart is like, awesome and totally Bella. I loff her. And Kellan Lutz! OMG, he's SO Emmett! Smaller than I imagined him, but his attitude is perfect! I love Emmett. He is quite possibly my favourite character in the whole series, if only for that line where he's like, "How come Bella gets to fight with werewolves?" OMG, Emmett.
Ashley Greene is less petite than the teeny-tiny Alice that Bella goes on about, but she's got the perfectly freakish look going on. Yay Alice! Esme's too old, Carlisle blond hair looks HORRIBLE -- every time I read "Carlisle" in the books, I wonder why they all call him by his last name, because I keep thinking of Peter Carlisle from Blackpool, and it really messes me up -- and Rosalie just looks too nice and not bitchy enough. But based on the clips I've seen, they're all really, really good in their roles.
But this summarizes pretty much how I feel about the whole thing, including the part where I had to download the series to my iPod. *headdesk*
If it can't be December, can it at least be August already?
