So I'm reading the last book in the Twilight series (are we calling it that?) because it just came out and I read the first two and everyone is crazy obsessed with it and stuff. But I still really don't get it. It's not that great. The story is sort of boring and overdone and basically a huge cliche, and the writing is on par with some of the not-so-great fanfictions I've read. Mostly it's the characters that bug me though. Because if Edward Cullen is not the biggest Gary Stu to ever traverse modern literature then I have never opened a book in my life, so he totally is. Bella is also a deplorable Mary Sue and I sort of hate her because she is so dumb and has bad lines. Whatever. I guess I keep reading these books because I want to see what it is that has everyone so excited, but I dunno.... these books are awful. I hear they're making a movie though, so possibly, in the hands of a great director and writer, it could just be passable.

ETA: Dang it, the author is planning two more books in the series. One of which will be the entire first book, except told from Edward's point of view. This woman is seriously in love with her character. He is utterly perfect, has no characters flaws that are actual flaws, and that is why he is such a Gary Stu.

I forgot to mention I got my camera. So now there are pictures! I took a few at the book release, but I didn't get many good ones of my costume so I think I will have to do a photoshoot thing later. Anyway, I got camera happy...

OMG Harry Potter!


I went to the the midnight release of the book. It wasn't that fun, because mostly I just stood around for six hours, and there weren't even that many good costumes. I think my Tonks was probably the best one, except for one girl who dressed up as a house elf and another girl who was an awesome Quidditch player. So it was pretty boring, but I think kind of cool. We were almost the last people to actually get the book, and we didn't get it until 2:10, at which point I wanted I lay on the floor and cry because I was so tired. And by the time I got home at 3:30 I was too tired to actually read it, so I didn't even break open my copy any earlier than i probably would have done if I'd ordered it from Amazon or whatever. 

Anyway, 14 hours of reading later.... see the cut.

I hate the internet. *kicks it* It died again, by the way, so I've been gone for a long time. As usual, the universe hates me, so it decided to deprive me of the internet at the very least convenient time, namely the month of July. Not only did I miss about 50,000 Harry Potter-themed fanmixes over at fanmix, but I also missed my own birthday, when I was going to post pictures of legal pads and stuff because, yep, I'm legal now. And I almost missed going to the midnight showing of Order of the Phoenix because I couldn't check the times, before I realized I own a phone book, but that at least worked out in the end. Oh yeah, and I have a mini rant about the movie, for anyone who cares to read it...


So anyway, book release coming up on Friday night, no idea how I'm getting there, but I am getting there, even if I have to swim. I'm finishing up re-reading the books (which I put off waaaay too long, but it's okay, because I'm almost done with the sixth one, which, I'm horrified to admit, I only read once), and the costumes are done. I'm getting a camera within a couple of days so I can take pictures of my Tonks costume, which I am ridiculously proud of because it rocks 14,000 times more than the movie's, and Friday/Saturday is going to be the most awesome day/night ever. Then I'm going to camp out in my room and not leave until I'm done with the seventh book, and then I will probably just be really angsty for the next couple days because it's over, you know? Then I will post an analysis of the book and read some fanfiction or something. Like I said, busy week.

Frankly, I'm terrified of my f-list at the moment, but I guess I have to make a crack at it eventually. I'll see what I can do.

This is one of those posts where I say I was gone for a really long time and everyone is like, "Really? I didn't even notice." The internet connection broke down again, apparently because the "tower", which I think is the semi-mythological source of the internet out here in the wilds of Texas, falls down every time we have a storm. Don't ask me, that's all I know.

Also, I went to see Pirates of the Caribbean 3. Yeah, even though I swore I never would and I wouldn't even watch the commercials for it and stuff. Whatever. It wasn't as bad as the second one I guess, but I'm still pretending it doesn't exist. At least they didn't keep saying "Why is the rum gone?" every thirty seconds. They only said it every thirty minutes. 

Now I have to go read the 300 unread posts on my f-list. You guys post too much.

I make no apologies for my love of werewolves. Part classical, part metal, part classic rock, all crazy werewolf love.
