Twilight is quite addicting. I have read 4 novels in a span of 3 weeks and Twilight is my newest addition. Thanks to Nat and Bethany raving about it, I had to give it a shot. I went to the library hoping to check it out, but to my dismay, there was already a long waiting list for the book. I didn't want to buy it because 1) We are trying to save money 2) I read books so fast, it almost becomes a waste of money. So a couple days ago, I succumbed to buying it, as the paperback was on sale at Target. I started it yesterday... and well I am done today. No worries, I wasn't a neglectful mom and I still made and sent out my orders, I really am just an unusually fast reader, which has its pros and cons. Novels can be the death of me... it is such an addiction.
Anyhow, I started reading yesterday and Bella (the main character) was cooking for her dad, Charlie, for the first time. It was steak and potatoes. Now, I am not usually a red meat eater, we don't ever buy it at our house. But at the instance, I had to have it. Even while I ate my lunch, fish tacos, it didn't taste so good compared to the idea of steak and potatoes. I had to have it.
Immediately, I called my Ben and declared my immediate need for it. He was surprised. But the good and loving man that he is, he came home with a steak and a potato (and he is quite thrifty in that he got the steak from the discounted meat section of the market for $2.50!). Then, he whipped it up for me with a delicious recipe he found. Then with utter contentment, I relished in my steak and potatoes as I continued to read...
So now, the books is done. I have decided that for my birthday I would like the rest of the series, but the only problem is, my birthday is still 3 weeks away and I am not sure if I could wait that long.
Since my Benny reads this, here is my birthday wish list (just in case he wants to get me something):
1. wide angle lens (though I know with the economy Ben is scared to spend).
2. these shoes (they're on sale).
3. or these (doubt anyone is gonna have them shipped from the UK).
4. this basket (but I can probably find a similar one for cheaper at the flea market).
5. and I would really love one of her Lumi dolls (this would be for me to play with).
But really, I want the rest of the Twilight series, but I don't think I could wait that long, so I probably will have them before then. I mean, come on, who could wait to continue the story of Edward and Bella, so very much forbidden, yet so romantic.
My Ben is my Edward.
I know, I am a sap who loves to read. Reading is like watching a movie in your mind. If you love movies, you would love to read. Reading is actually better, cause it doesn't end in 2 hours. For me, it ends in 4.
Well, anyways, happy thursday! Tomorrow I may have some new things to show you...
