Truth be told...

I have not yet started Breaking Dawn. I have meant to, honest, it's just that the past 3-4 weeks, possibly longer, have been pure and utter chaos. With the Heritage Makers convention in Anaheim, a gall bladder attack and 4 days in the happiest place on earth (Disneyland, of course) I haven't had time to breath.

With that said, I am hoping to start it soon—does anyone know if there is a way to get a few more hours out of a day?

Eclipse: Epilogue Choice

I will be starting Breaking Dawn either tonight or tomorrow on the ride to work. I have to say that Eclipse has been my favorite of the three, but I also liked the first one a lot. What a great series.

Thursday, September 4, 2008

This blog has not been forgotten, I promise...

I have not forgotten about this blog and I will not neglect it. It's just that work is totally crazy right now and I need to figure out how to squeeze a few more ours out of the day...

With that said, here's a quick update. I am still not done with Eclipse. Edward and Jacob are talking in the tent during the storm... The Support SM site is doing well, we added another 30 names to the list tonight, bringing the total to 1,083. That's about it for now. More to come soon, I promise.

I am almost done with Eclipse...

Even with work being crazy busy, both for Heritage Makers and freelance, and with an unexpected trip to San Jose for a funeral—I have still managed to find the time to read in what is turning out to be the best book of the Twilight series (calm down, I still haven't read Breaking Dawn). Most of my reading happens during the commute to and from work (I carpool in a van, for those of you who might worry that I am crazy enough to read and drive).

Anyways...more work to do.

Show your support for Stephenie Meyer

Okay, for those of you who don't know, I (with some prodding from some fellow Twi-hards) have started a blog where you can list your name (send first and last name, plus state where you live—outside the US send country—to supportstepheniemeyer@gmail.com) in support of Stephenie Meyer and the Twilight series.


Apparently, there is a SM fan who is upset with the way Breaking Dawn ended and is now telling people to return their copies and damage SM and her reputation as a writer. While I have not yet read Breaking Dawn (half way through Eclipse) I can't imagine not liking it to the point that I would consider returning it to the store. That seems to be something you would do with a pair of jeans you thought you could squeeze into—only to discover that you couldn't. Anyways...

Check out the blog and send in your name to show your support for SM.

New Twilight-inspired ad for Volvo



Okay, so I think this would totally be an awesome billboard or ad to see somewhere. Who knows, Volvo just might sell a few more of these bad boys.

Able to view images now

I don't know what I did, but I am now able to simply click on the images in my anniversary post and they pop-up in a window at the full size. Can anyone else verify this for me?

Thursday, August 14, 2008

I finished New Moon

I finished New Moon. Finished last night actually. Great book, even with Edward's absence for a good chunk of the book. I really enjoy the way that the story is progressing. I have started Eclipse, only about 23 pages into it, but I am enjoying it so far.

More thoughts later.

Images in previous post

I thought it was possible to be able to click on an image and have it open in a new window to see the larger version... I will do some research and see if I can figure it out. If anyone has any ideas, please let me know. For now, I guess you can download the image and view it that way.

Thanks.

9 Years of bliss... celebrated Twi-style

Yesterday was my nine-year anniversary of marriage to the love of my life, Heather. It was my year to plan what we were doing. Neither of us mentioned anything about the day until Heather called me in the early afternoon hours to casually mention Happy Anniversary. I feigned like I had sort of forgot that it was our anniversary, trying to set the stage for my plans. I am still not sure if she bought it 100%. I like to try and surprise Heather with things like this—like the time I surprised her with a pink iPod shuffle for Valentines Day—she had no idea on that one.

So, I got her roses, of course—seems to be one of the safe things to get for an anniversary. But the real gift was—and this is where Twilight comes in—a home-made card and 4 bookmarks (one for each of her Stephenie Meyer Twilight novels). First, the bookmarks. They are double-sided and laminated. Here's what they looked like:


Now, for the card. It's hard to explain how it folds, but some of you might get the idea. It's in three panels, and when opened it has a zig-zag shape to it. That's not really what's important, though. It's what's on the card—the message—that is what's important. See for yourself:


And the best part about it is she loved it. What a great anniversary.

Another Monday, another chapter in New Moon

Well, I read more on the ride into work this morning. I am just about to start chapter 16 in New Moon. Heather said that it's going to be getting better. She warned me that soon, it will be really hard to put the book down. I have to say, though, that this book has not been as hard to read as a lot of people have made it out to be—even with Edward gone (maybe that's cause I know he's coming back). Anyways...

I need to do a little work before I read more...

Saturday, August 9, 2008

The first Twilight wallpaper is here...



From time to time I like to mix it up with how my computer looks—well, at least what image is on the screen(s). Here is the what's now on the home computer. Still not sure if this is the final phrase that I want on it, but that's the nice thing about Photoshop. I can change it anytime.

Feel free to download this image and use it as your own. This file is ideal for 1920x1200 screen resolution. I will try and get a few different sizes up, for those of you who may need a different size for your screen. Feel free to email me if there is something you are specifically looking for.

Now, onto read more of New Moon (half way done).

Friday, August 8, 2008

Swimming in a sea of emotion...

I am about 130 pages or so into New Moon. Not good. I hate Edward for leaving Bella, and I am not happy about Bella rebounding to Jacob (sorry to all the Jacob fans out there, but Bella is rebounding to him, and hard).

I think it's a good thing that I know from talking with Heather when she read the series that Edward comes back in New Moon. If I didn't know he was coming back I think I might be a little bit of a wreck. Yeah, go ahead and laugh.

Thursday, August 7, 2008

I finished Twilight!

Well, after waiting for what seemed like an eternity for the CDs to become available from the library and having a friend (Gina) send me a DVD with all three books on it, I can say I have finally been able to partake in what pre-teens, teens and moms with kids have experienced with the Twilight story. And here's the kicker—I never listened to the book. I read it.

I think I was spoiled with listening to the whole Harry Potter series read by Jim Dale. If any of you have had the chance to listen to them, you know what I am talking about. Jim Dale is phenomenal. Truly a wonder to listen to. The lady who read the Twilight series was a little less than that. Ah, who am I kidding—she was awful to listen to. With that said...

I loved the story of Twilight. Loved it. I see how this can turn into an obsession for some readers... for most readers. It took me about a week to read, here and there at night and to and from work (don't worry, I am not reading while driving—I am part of a ride-share carpool). I actually finished it this morning and have started reading the first chapter of New Moon that's in the back of Twilight. I am interested to see if this next book pulls me in like Twilight did. I'll keep you posted.

And, for all the guys out there that haven't read Twilight—you really don't know what you're missing. You really don't.

Breaking Dawn

Well, Heather has had her copy of Breaking Dawn now for almost 24 hours and is half-way through it. After picking up her copy last night at Barnes & Nobel shortly after midnight she read until around 3am and then went to bed. When the kids woke up at their usual time of 6:30, I took them downstairs and let Heather sleep. She woke up around 9:30 and went straight to reading Breaking Dawn again. Anyways, it's almost 8:00 pm and Heather's back to reading. I am "watching" the kids—they are being entertained by a movie until they are ready for bed. Fun.

Wednesday, July 30, 2008

I'm still here...

Well, I have sort of been busy with doing stuff that pays the bills and have neglected this blog. Many apologies. I am pleased to announce that Heather is getting excited with the release of Breaking Dawn just days away. She is planning on reading this entire weekend and hoped to be able to finish it before Monday—knowing her, it shouldn't be that hard for her to do.

I am going to be posting some wallpapers that I have created using images from the latest teaser trailer for the Twilight movie that was released a week or so ago. Not sure what sizes I will be offering, but they will be free and I would love any feedback on them when I get them up.

Follow up: Something you won't see...

I don't want anyone to think I am bitter, angry or anything like towards Stephenie or Seth. I just don't understand why you wouldn't want to take a great and well visited site and make it better. I just don't understand.

Friday, June 6, 2008

Something you won't see...

Well, I have closed the poll early I had added to this blog. According to the overwhelming number of votes I received (a grand total of 2) it looks like people would like to see a new design for stepheniemeyer.com.

While it is primarily an information site, I still feel very strongly that it could use an update—especially with the release of Breaking Dawn and Twilight the movie just around the corner. I have been trading emails with Seth Meyer, Stephenie's little brother, who is the webmaster for the site over the past few weeks to see if it would be possible to help him with getting a new and updated look for the site. I offered to do the design work for free. No charge. I have some extra time on my hands between freelance projects and work—plus, I am a huge work-a-holic—my wife can attest to this. Here's the kicker—Seth says that Stephenie has no interest at all in changing the way the site is. Huh? Are you kidding? It's like having a car, it gets you from point A to B, the paint's a little dated and the leather's a tad faded and cracking, and there are definitely some miles on it—but it's a good car. Then, out of the blue, someone offers to do a lot of work on the car—new engine, new paint, new interior—the works—all for free, no strings attached. What do you do? Do you stay with the old car or do you take a chance on the "to good to be true" new car offer? Below is a sample of one of the few pages I put together for Seth.



Maybe enough people will read this and agree with me. Maybe Stephenie will change her mind. Maybe.

Fight scene between James and Edward

For those of you who are not aware, here is the first completed scene from the new Twilight movie due out this December. It's short, and it appears to be spliced, but what a rush. I thought Heather was going to have a mild heart attack when she watched it this morning before I went to work. Enjoy!

Passing the time...

So, Heather (my beautiful and gorgeous wife) has been playing Guitar Hero 3, passing the time until Breaking Dawn comes out. Here is a video of her playing GH3 on expert—she doesn't play very much, but you wouldn't know it given how good she is. She doesn't play anything but hard and now expert—everything else is too slow.

The Start of a Fan Base?


As many of you know, my wife went to the Stephenie Meyer book signing for The Host this past week. As they (my wife and the rest of the Twi-hards) took their seats and settled in to wait another couple of hours for the discussion and book signing to begin more discussions arouse—the topics numerous, but I am more than sure the name of "Edward" was mentioned at least 3 times a minute, followed by sighs of love and fantasy. My wife and her friend Amy (and Amy's sister) were in row nine, in the center section. One row back (my wife tells me) were a group of 14-year old girls who were having a discussion. As it's really hard not to eavesdrop when you're that close, Heather tells me that one of the girls asked the other girls if they'd heard of a blog titled Spouses of Edward Cullen Fans—my wife turned around and told them that was her husband's blog. The details of the rest of the conversation are a blur to me, but my wife did manage to snap a shot of the girls (see above).

Thanks for the support and comments, Kel Bel and friends—look for some neat stuff to come in the next few weeks.

Breaking Dawn release date theory

I received an email today from one of my friends, Gina Nielson, who came across this email about a possible theory as to why Breaking Dawn is set to release on August 2nd. This is pure speculation on my part, as I am sure it is of the author. As far as I know, Stepenie Meyer nor her publicist have confirmed nor denied what you are about to read.

(You can find this post at the following address: http://twilightseriestheories.com/2008/05/book-news/it-will-truly-be-a-breaking-dawn)

Since February 7th we have been counting down the exact number of days until the release of Breaking Dawn. When I learned the date I rushed to my calendar to circle August 2nd. “Why August 2nd,” I had wondered? Looking at my calendar, I soon discovered why… August 1st happens to be an exciting night for all of us Twilighters… Following the usual time of Twilight, there happens to be a New Moon and a total solar Eclipse, making the morning after: Breaking Dawn! Coincidence that August 2nd was chosen? I think not. After my exciting discovery, I waited to see if any fan sites posted this piece of news. And waited, and waited… Either Stephenie or her publishers must have chosen the release date for this reason, so why hadn’t the press release included anything about this? Three months later, it didn’t seem like anyone was going to be commenting on the release date. So I decided to write to Kassie and Kallie about my discovery. Surely I’m not the only one to have noticed the awesome pick for the release date?

~ Reported by Nicole from Seattle, WA


Anyways, I am sure that's already circulated the growing world of Twi-hards at least once, but I still found it interesting.

Saturday, May 17, 2008

My wife is the best!

So, Heather got back from the signing and you know what she brought me? IHOP food! That's where they went to eat and she got an extra big meal so she would have something left to bring me!

That right there is how a Twi-hard supports her husband who supports her.

Stephenie Meyer & Thanksging Point

Well, it's almost 10:30pm. Heather went to the book signing and review tonight for Stephenie Meyer's new book, The Host. I expect her back anytime now—she went to grab a bite to eat with her friends.

I will post the pictures she took while at the event so all of you who were unable to attend can see the mad-house you missed. More later...

Tuesday, May 13, 2008

So, Friday's the big day...

Friday is almost here. For those of you who actually got a ticket to the Stephenie Meyer book signing and discussion, this week is going to drag... kind of funny actually. It's like Christmas Eve as a small child—lying in bed at night, wanting to sleep, but sleep doesn't come. Funny.

I will not be attending, for a few reasons. The first, and most obvious, is that I did not purchase a ticket. Second, and more importantly, is that I will be watching the children (just my three—I am not offering my baby-sitting services, sorry). I don't mind, though. My kids are awesome. I am trying to learn from them on how to be a better Dad.

Anyways, lots of luck to those of you lucky enough to have a ticket—be prepared to wait in line.

Support Your Wife's Obsession Tip #2



Stephenie Meyer, The Host and four cold hours in the wee morning.

Trust me, this has everything to do with supporting your wife's obsession. If your wife has memorized the Twilight series and is looking for something to pass the time until Breaking Dawn comes out, you'll understand.

This past Tuesday morning (May 6th) at 8:00 tickets went on sale for a book signing and Q&A session with Stephenie Meyer promoting her new book, The Host. There were two Barnes & Nobel locations selling these tickets, 500 per store. My wife, Heather, was planning on purchasing a ticket (which included a copy of the book), but didn't expect to get hit with the flu. I, being the loving husband that I try and be, offered to buy the ticket for her—this was my idea and did not come from my wife at all, I need to make that clear. I called the store and discovered that there were already people camping out in line, waiting. Oh, crap. Twi-hards.

After some discussion, we both decided it would be best for me to simply wake up real early and go and get in line. I was more than willing to go the night before and simply sleep in line, but I didn't want to leave Heather alone without any help, as our youngest was sick as well. So, 4:00am rolls around and I roll out of bed. On the road and at the store at 4:40am, I could smell the blood in the air—yeah, call it cliche, but I like vampires, too. There was already a line that snaked around the building, and into the depths of darkness between the other stores. I made my way to the back of the line, plopped down and tried to stay warm. Other's followed in my footsteps. I was about 70 or so people back. The group in front of me was busy being entertained by watching Keira Knightley's version of Pride & Prejudice and laughing at the vertical struggles of Mr. Collins. I eventually broke the ice with the people around me and conversations and a cool card game followed. As time wore on, the sun started to come out and after 20 or so minutes of really, really cold wind, we found a little life coming back into our limbs. To make a long story short, as I am tired and needing to get to bed, the store opened on time and we slowly—and I do mean slowly—made our way inside to buy our tickets. There was a little panic and anticipation as we saw people leaving the store with multiple copies of the book, each containing a much-coveted ticket.

But, in the end, all that mattered was that I was able to get a ticket and a copy of the book for my wife, and one for her friend and her friend's sister.

And then I went home, showered and went to work.

Support Your Wife's Obsession Tip #1



Here's a good tip for all you guys out there wanting to impress your wives and show her that you really do love her and support her addictive obsession, otherwise known as Edward.

The next time you can, get a piece or two of ice, and without letting your wife see what your doing, rub the ice on your lips until they are good and numb. Timing here is essential—if you wait to long, your lips will return to their normal temperature—but if you rush over to your wife without taking the time to at least wipe the excess water off your lips, she's bound to think your nuts—or something. With perfect timing, you'll be able to slip next to your wife and give her an "Edward kiss"— or, as it should be known, a [your name here] on-the-rocks kiss.

Try it, you never know where it will lead...

Friday, May 2, 2008

I love you, Heather...


I haven't posted anything lately, work and freelance have kept me pretty busy. But, I did want to post this one little thing tonight—

I love you, Heather and happy birthday (May 3). Thanks for loving me back, even if I don't glisten in the sun and watch you while you sleep.

Tuesday, April 29, 2008

Join the Ranks

Well, it has been a few days since I have posted anything—yes, I know, it's hard to believe that I have a life outside of this blog...

I think it would be interesting to see how many fellas out there are supporting their better-half in this whole Twi-mare (for those who are a little Twi-challenged, I am referring to...naw, you can figure it out). And what better way to do that than with a petition—but not any old petition, I want this to be a photo petition. Spread the word ladies—we're looking for photos of your hubbies or boyfriends (Edward DOES NOT count, sorry) supporting you in your obsession.

Please send photos to jenglish1976@gmail.com and put VSG photo petition in the subject line. I will post these images when I get them. Who wants to be first?

Saturday, April 26, 2008

I thought I had found something new...

Well, I was poking around, trying to uncover more details on the rumored release date for the Twilight teaser trailer that is rumored to appear before the movie Speed Racer when it opens in two weeks (9th of May) when I came across some production photos from the Twilight set.

I thought that I had found something new, and I was really excited to show my wife, Heather—but she had already seen them. For those of you who have not seen them, here you go:

http://amhphotography.typepad.com/photos/kalama/index.html

If anyone knows when we can expect to see the teaser trailer for Twilight, please let me know where and when—my wife, along with all her Twi-hard friends, would appreciate it.

No, really, we took this together...

Okay, time for one more post before I head upstairs to pass out. Shortly after my wife, Heather, started reading the Twi-series she came to me and told me of an activity the Relief Society was doing—something to do with getting to know each other better. She told me they needed a photo of her doing something that she enjoyed, something unique. She told me how she would like to have a picture of her either playing Guitar Hero 3 on the xbox360 or reading Twilight. I know, I know, guys—I am blessed with a beautiful, sensitive, romantic, extremely gorgeous wife that likes to play video games (well, just Guitar Hero 3—and she totally can kick my trash at it). In the end, though, the reading of Twilight was her pick, and below is the collaborative effort of the both of us, a digital camera and Photoshop (which is one of my drugs of choice). Enjoy!

You know you're a Twi-hard if...

Let's face it, we all should be familiar with Jeff Foxworthy and his "you might be a redneck" comedy—if you're not, go ahead and crawl back under your rock. With that said, I think it's appropriate that I share this list* with you.

*This list is more or a less a compilation of other lists I have seen around. If there is something missing, let me know and we'll grow this list.

You know you're a obsessed Twi-hard (or Twi-lover) if...
  • You channel surf the radio so you can score Twilight movie tickets.
  • You nearly run off the road if you see a silver Volvo or old, red pick up truck.
  • You enter any business establishment and scope out all the young men for those who might be handsome enough to portray Edward. Sadly, you enjoy little success. They are all pimply 17 year olds which is normal!
  • You tell your husband that you spend all your time on TM's because it's a great place to share recipes and child rearing advice.
  • You create a My Space account for the simple reason that everyone else on TM's seems to have one.
  • You sit for hours in front of Photo Shop trying to figure out how the hell to manipulate a photo.
  • You actually consider having a t-shirt custom printed that reads "Support Robert!" - Costs about $25 incl. delivery!
  • You write your very first fan letter ever to an actor & actress who are young enough to be your children.
  • You wake up at 4:00 every morning and wonder what you missed on TM's overnight.
  • You lay in bed until 5:30, when you feel it's a reasonable hour to get out of bed for the day, and run to check for new news.
  • You have to check TM's before you go start a pot of coffee.
  • You spend hours wishing that SM would rewrite all the books from Edward's POV.
  • You force yourself to stop at 13 obsessions because any more would simply seem pathetic!
  • Your kids think you have the stomach flu because you lock yourself in the bathroom for hours at a time just to be able to read alone!
  • You bribe your husband with cash or favors to take the kids out of the house so you can read without interruptions.
  • You take your kids to a movie and use the light from your cel phone to read as much as you can before you start getting dirty looks.
  • You are willing to visit your in-laws because you know it's a long enough drive that you can read at least 4 chapters.
  • Your husband kisses you and you're disappointed because his lips aren't cold.
  • You start going up to random people to tell them you want an Edward.
  • You think your next door neighbor looks like a vampire, or he really is a vampire.
  • You try to control your thoughts because Edward might hear them.
  • You've read Twilight, New Moon and Eclipse at least 5 times each.
  • You think your best friend's crazy for not reading Twilight, New Moon and Eclipse.
  • You give your teachers Twilight and/or New Moon for Christmas.
  • You see a box labeled "Forks" at a restruant you think there's something imported from Forks, Washington in there.
  • The Twilight series has ruined any and all future reading for you.
  • You use Twilight for every single school project that pops up.
  • You break up with your boyfriend because he doesn't glitter in the sun like Edward does.
  • Your mom is sick of you calling her Bella.
  • Your dad is sick of you calling him Edward.
  • You have uncontrollable fits of laughter every time someone says something funny in Twilight.
  • You refuse to read New Moon (again) because it causes physical pain when Edward leaves Bella.
  • After reading Twilight you start to wonder if your cat is a vampire and you try to get it to bite you so you can be a vampire and go find Edward.
  • Your neighbors come home from vacation wondering why after you took care of their dog it now answers to Bella instead of its real name.
  • You get mad at your friend because she's had your Twilight book for almost a week.
  • You have hour long phone conversations focused entirely on Edward.
  • You start talking about Twilight out loud to yourself.
  • You've already got your neighbor and your neighbor's daughter anxiously awaiting the arrival of the fourth book in the series.
  • You convince your parents to name your new baby sister Isabella.
  • You see the car name of "Eclipse" and you gasp a little and become giddy.
  • You actually get showered and ready for bed in a rush because you think that Edward will be waiting for you.
  • You get disappointed when he's not there to watch you sleep.
  • You pretend he's there any way.
  • Sometimes while reading Twilight you look up from the book shocked to find you're not in Forks and you don't actually remember were you are.
  • Every night a few minutes before midnight you get on StephenieMeyer.com and watch the countdown to Breaking Dawn get one day closer.
  • You randomly walk into a church and pray to Stephenie Meyer with your copy of Twilight that you bring everywhere.
  • You dream about having one wish and that one wish is that Twilight was reality and you were Edward's "mate".
  • You realize that every thing you've ever written and dreamt of will never compare to Twilight at all.
  • You want to take calculus because it's on Edward's timetable even though you argued with your teacher that you hated it.
  • You get embarrassed about thoughts you have because you never know who could be 'listening'.
  • You practise closing your mind so if you came across an Edward he wouldn't judge you.
  • You break up with your boyfriend because "it's not sexy to sleep, you have to watch me".
  • You at first loathe Rosalie, but when she apologizes to Bella, you start to like her.
  • You drive to school on an icy day, thinking to yourself the whole way there if Edward will save you from an out of control van.
  • When you almost get hit by a van, you freak out when Edward wasn't the one who saved you.
  • You want to go cliff diving.
  • You constantly imagine how seductive (XD) Edward smells.
  • You've spent countless hours drawing anything Twilight, New Moon, Eclipse related.
  • When people ask you what you want to be when you grow up, you immidiately say you want to be a doctor...who's also a vampire.
  • You get dizzy when you smell blood.
  • You get nervous if you go into a ballet studio
  • You spend however much time needed picturing what the Twilight character's look like.
  • You hate Dracula movies.
  • When you're sitting at home reading "the book" on Halloween (you finished trick or treating) and a group of kids come to your door, they're all wearing those awful vampire costumes, and you reluctantly give them each one half of a small chocolate bar. When they pout, you tell them "if you sparkle in the sun, I might consider giving you seconds."
  • You want to go to Brigham Young University.
  • You're determined to learn how to play piano, even though you have no musical talent whatsoever.
  • You don't eat your lunch and when your friends ask, you say "I just had my share of an irritable grizzly".
  • You try to run as fast as you can (faster, even) in hopes that you could be as fast as a vampire.
  • You're desperate to have freezing skin.
  • You want to have the graceful dancer's walk like Alice has...psh, you just want to be graceful!
  • You constantly remind people that vampires don't burn up in the sun, don't sleep in coffins, etc.
  • You get mad at your friend when you tell her your theory that Bella's hallucinations aren't just that, they're because Edward truly is looking after her and your friend laughs and tells you otherwise.
  • Harry Potter 7 used to be the #1 book you had to get this summer... now it's Breaking Dawn! Harry who?
  • You and your friend have complete discussions about what will happen next in the book/series.
  • Whenever you and your friends talk about Edward, your voices get higher and higher until your words are nothing but a squeal, and everyone around you stares at you like you're total freaks.
I am sure there are many, many more of these floating around out there, so comment back and let's grow this list and give Jeff Foxworthy a run for his money.

My Wife Heather—A Cullen-Convert



I have to admit, I am impressed that my wife has gotten into the Twilight series as deep as she has.

She is waiting until the end of May to buy the third book, Eclipse, because it will have the first chapter of the fourth book at the end of it. She hates reading the majority of the second book, for obvious reasons. She belongs to a book club in our neighborhood and has many Twilight addicted friends. She even has one of the Bite Me t-shirts.

I am sure that her Twilight obsession is fairly mild compared to some out there, and thank goodness—the last thing I need is a life-size cutout of Edward in my bedroom.

My wife Heather—a Cullen-convert.

A Little Clarification

I think I need to make one thing absolutely clear. This is not an anti-Edward Cullen blog. No way it could be since I have not read the series, let alone the first book—I am actually waiting for the library to email me when it's my turn to get them on CD. For me, it's the only way to go—listening to books on CD. It allows me to be free to do other tasks while I listen, like design or draw.

So, once again, this blog is in no way anti-Edward—it's just set up for the guys whose better halves are obsessed with the Twilight series—to whatever degree their obsession may be.

A Few Good Men...

I was talking with a friend earlier about this blog, and he suggested we make of list of possible men who could take on Edward and actually win. In my opinion, the list is small, but it does exist.

Here's what I have so far:

• Chuck Norris (no contest)
• Jack Bauer
• John McClane
• John Wayne (if he was still alive)

Like I said, the list is small, but it's there. There might be more out there—let me know if you think you have a potential candidate to add to the list.

The Latest Scoop on the Twilight movie

My wife found this the other day—go figure—and I thought I'd share it.

I think it's great that they are going the route of making this movie appeal to both female and male. This is going to be a big hit this winter—and I am sure it will be added to our collection of movies when it comes out on DVD.

Welcome to the Group...

Well, I figured this is long overdue, especially since my lovely wife (and now die-hard Edward Cullen fan) is now reading Eclipse for the third time—in less than a month.

Welcome to the Vampire Support Group—yeah, yeah, I know the idea is cheesy, but I thought better now than never to get on the Edward Cullen band wagon. The idea behind this blog is to give the husbands/boyfriends of the crazed throng of Edward Cullen fans a place to discuss/vent their thoughts and feeling about the series and the effect it's had on everything—and I mean everything. Plus, I will try and keep everyone abreast of the Twilight movie due out in December—definitely more than just a chick flick romance with a vampire...

I am hopefully going to post at least once a week to start—and we'll go from there. Hopefully, this will catch on and in the next month or so we'll have a following of our own.
