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!
