Its been hectic here, and I was feeling a bit down. Beth got ill (just a cold and feeling yucky, not serious) and couldn't go to see Twilight with me, and then, last night was the end of True Blood on HBO till next summer! I'll miss Vampire Bill. Of course, I could re-read all the Sookie Books, that might hold me over.
I wonder though, why is the vampire always the one to win the girl? Now, I am a huge vampire fan myself, and the Buffy series will always be my number one favorite show, but I have to wonder, why do werewolves always lose out to vamps when it comes to love?
(Yea, I know these photos have nothing to do with what I am talking about. I just listed this stuff onEtsy and was feeling kind of proud of myself for accomplishing something).
In the Twilight series, I was pulling for Jake. In True Blood, for Sam. Maybe it is the broodiness of vampires? The dog-guys seem happier and more fun to be with, while the blood suckers are dark and gloomy. Not all that romantic to me. That might be why I was a Spike fan instead of an Angel fan.
(Yes, more photos that don't' go along with what I am saying... this is the giveaway for November, made in my Sally Jean class)
I hope to see Twilight soon, but really hate to think about young girls seeing it. OK,here is where I put on my granny hat and start harping about kids today.... I personally was bothered by the fact that Edward was 100 years older than Bella. I know, I know, Angel and Spike were older than Buffy and that never bothered me, but Buffy was super human. Bella is just a kid.
A kid who wants to give up her entire life for her first love? As a person who married her first love and years later came to regret it, and was able to start over with a wonderful man and live happily ever after, I hate to see young girls everywhere drooling over the romantic dreams of puppy-lovesick Bella.
(here is the back of the pendant for the giveaway, my fairy grand baby!)
Maybe because I have a young lady in my life, someone I want to grow up strong and smart and healthy, I abhor what Bella is doing to herself for her teen age hormone induced cravings for a MUCH older man.
Ok, rant over. And I am still going to go and see the movie.
Anyway, I was feeling a bit down, due to a few things. Like someone saying some unkind things about me on a chat board, and it hurt my feelings. But, an apology came and I feel much better. Also, look what came in the mail! A sweet reader, for no reason, just kindness, sent me some ephemera and old books she knew I would love. How can you be down when there are nice people like that around?
Her goodie box and that apology came on a good day, when I needed it. There is a lesson there somewhere. Like, always take the time to do or say something nice, you never know when it will be just the thing someone needs at that moment!
And of course, I have this event to look forward to! Read about it here.
