I feel that it is time for me to start doing this again. It gives me a chance to spill some of my vitriol on the unsuspecting people who used to read my blog but now no longer do, because, dear former readers, it seems to be months between posts.
Well, that will change. I need more practice writing. I assume it's something that I'm brilliant at and it would be a shame to deprive everybody of my brilliant and eccentric (perhaps egocentric?) but definitely esoteric prose. Additionally, my thoughts are so grand and wonderful and downright thoughtful that, as previously typed, it would be a tragedy not to share.
The first half hour of Twilight makes me want to rip off my own ears (as I am listening to it on my Zune) just to get the sound of Bella's whining out of my head.
I hyperbolize. And I make up words. I'd never rip off my own ears. And it's still early in the book. There's plenty of time left to learn to hate her.
A few things stick out at me so far. First; prologues suck. This one especially. It tries to foreshadow, I guess, but just ends up ruining the book. Like "Kill Bill, Vol. 1" where the first 15 minutes of the movie is actually the last 15 minutes of the movie. Whatever fear or trepidation I had for the heroine is gone because I know she lives. Same thing here.
Second, why is she in Forks if she doesn't want to be. Probably, some major plot point later in the story. This is just slightly buggy to me right now.
Third, if you can get a sunburn on a cloudy day, real vampires will die on a cloudy day. That's all there is to it.
Lastly, someone who looks like they're just recovering from a broken nose is not gorgeous. I don't care who they are.

You have a Zune? Wow, I guess it has been a while since we talked... ;)
Good to see you writing again. Hope all is well. If I can find five free seconds in the next couple of days, I'll give you a call...
