Embarrased to admit!

I admit it, finally. I have been in denial for a good 6 months now. I don't know exactly why I held out so long, but here it is! I love Twilight! Ok, that part is not that big of revelation. Anyone who knows me, knows that I really love the books and have read them several time, with the exception of New Moon. I could only handle that one once. Why you ask? Duh, Edward wasn't in that one very much! I know I am getting way off subject, you're here to see what I did...I bought Twilight movie merchandise!

I know I know, I said I never would, but I was lured in by sweet temptations, and who can resist a well planned advertising scheme, not to mention the curiosity to see what is beyond the clever and enticing packaging! I broke down and bought.........Twilight Sweethearts (conversation hearts) in four "Forbidden Fruit Flavors"!


I admit it, I am weak. I have bravely fought off the onslaught of movie mayhem, and overwhelming influx of t-shirts, books, magazine covers, book marks, and even make-up. I swore I would not buy a "Bite-Me" t-shirt or an I heart Edward Cullen bumper sticker. (Even though I secretly do) Ssshhhhh, don't tell my husband, he gets a bit jealous of my fascination with fictitious characters.


How could I resist the sugar and corn syrup calling out to me, and those sultry flavors hypnotizing my will to resist, Orange Obsession, Tempting Apple, Passion Fruit (it even sparkles), and Secret Strawberry. Don't they sound dangerous and naughty?!? You know you're tempted to run out and get some to see if they are all they are "sparkled" up to be! I must admit it was a teeny bit of a let down. I had to scour the box or this next picture. Not very many of the words are legible. Someone needs to do some quality control over at Necco. We twilight girls do have are standards you know.


I did manage to find a few cute ones. There is even one that says Forks on it! How fun is that.
You may not know that I live very close to Forks, within easy driving distance, but I have restrained myself, again too embarrassed to get sucked into the crazy mayhem. Plus I have a bit of an overactive scaredy cat gene and I am just the slightest bit worried there are real vampires up there. I even get scared when I go out to the barn and night because there are woods close to my house and it is dark and a vampire could be across the field in the blink of an eye and get me you know.
Although I know Edward would never do that because....I heart Edward Cullen!


In my sane rational mommy mind I know that vampires are not real, but dang that Stephenie Meyer for her great use of imagery! Run girls! Run out and get some! I'll wait, let me know what you think!

ok, those are fun! I think there might be real vampires around here, I kept seeing them as I was reading the books. pale skin is everywhere.

I too LOVED the books. I only read each one once though. That is all I have had time for. I was totally "sucked" (no pun intended), into that story line. I enjoyed the first movie, even though many said it was disappointing. I have refrained from adding the twilight blinkies to my blog as not to appear like an obsessed teenager. However, my insides are jumping up and down in anticipation for Stephanie to actually finish the next book (Midnight Sun).. that being the story told from Edwards point of view. Dang those thieves for stealing it. She probably would have finished it by now, and be ready for print.

There was a bus trip to Forks today for boys baseball. I really wanted to take it so I would have a really good excuse to go to Forks. Darn it, someone else took it. I have to admit now that I am reading the books I usually can't read them by myself if I am at home in the dark. I would have to say that I really like Jacob also.
Buy the movie so I can watch it.

Just read your comment. I did a post of Twilight recently. Before doing that I looked up Midnight Sun on her website. She originally said she was not going to finish it. BUT.. on June of 2008, it says that after many emails & encouragement from her fans.. Midnight Sun would be her next project. Who knows if she will actually finish it, but I'm hoping. I am refraining from reading any of it, as I would rather wait in hopes of reading it when completed. I also can't wait for the rest of the movies.. but I know they are on fast track as to keep her fans interested.

OH.. and if you are still interested in a button. My hubby said he would try to make you one. I would need you to email me the clip art of your choice. Not sure if he would need anything else, I don't think so. Anyway.. let me know, and I will give you my email address. No pressure, as email addresses are private and I understand if you don't want to give it out.

Anyway.. happy day!

funny post! I read all of them.. haven't seen the movie.. I think it is kinda funny how obsessed people get with the series.. I liked the books, I dont' think I could read them 2x.. Forks was part of the stake we grew up in.. We used to camp at mora, and hike on 1st and 2nd beach, and go to lapush.. it was super fun to read cause I have been to all those places.. and she has such a great desciption.. I can totally relate, when I was reading them it was winter and rainy and driving my kids to piano, I go through the woods for a bit, and oh boy.. I would totally freak myself out, like oh are "they" around?? :) so.. you're not alone!

I've never read the book or seen the movie....so I guess it's okay if I laugh at these candies....dang that woman is gonna make a fortune marketing her stuff. I think I'm the last woman on the planet to not have been sucked into the world of Edward!
Happy Easter!!!

Megan said...

Thanks for the laugh! Just when I thought I had seen it all, Twilight candies! I keep telling people I am not obsessed with these books, yet I keep reading them. I also have watched the movie twice in the past 2 weeks. Why does it have such a hold over me, dang it! It would be fun if we went to Forks together (and kept it a secret of course!)

O my gosh Maria, You kept me in stitches again. You really have a way with words and I apprecieated the fun way that you shared especially after my sad few weeks losing my dad. I did spend quite a few days in Forks myself lately as that is where Pa was buried and we are moving my mom there this week. Anyway You made my day. I sure hope that all of your kids are well and that you and Robb are ok too. I just love you Maria. Take care and God bless. Mona.....

My girls are obsessed with it too...and after seeing the movie I can see why. I loved the movie, it is very artistic and romantic. I would be obsessed if I we're a teen and would probably have a T'shirt!
