"You Can't Trust Vampires - Trust Me"

Our New Moon party was a blast. Yes, it was. We had about 8 people there, nearly all of whom I believe were over 35. And we feasted on such delicacies as Emily's Muffins, Werewolf Kibble, Vegetarian Vampire Pizza, Rising Moon Beer, and various other red drinks and items that matched the mood. We hung posters and displayed the books. And everyone got their picture taken with Edward.

You know what? Sometimes it's fun to act like a teenager again. It's so easy to get wrapped up in the day-to-day details of being a mom and wife, or of whatever other job you might hold, and forget that we used to know how to be goofy, used to know the rush of wondering if he liked you or didn't like you, used to think some of the biggest decisions revolved around clothing and hairstyles, and whether or not to call someone... Well, O.K., yeah, we thought about bigger issues than that, but I can remember when romance felt so all-consuming, and it's fun to revisit that, whether through book or film. One of the reasons I love the Twilight series.

Plus, it was just darn fun to have an all-women get together. It really was.
