I’m Thankful For… Day 21

I’m thankful for great entertainment! I went to see Twilight last night and I didn’t even have to wait until midnight! My friend Audrey rented out a theater for an 8:00 PM show!

Some of you know that I wasn’t too impressed with the books (don’t hate me) but I just didn’t catch the fever like some of the others I know… But after seeing the movie – I think I have! I LOVED the movie. Robert Pattinson did an awesome job as Edward. And I thought Kristen Stewart was the perfect Bella. Even if you weren’t a fan of the books – go see this movie! My husband with me and even he liked it :)

Stephanie Meyer….Blah

I know I’m taking a big risk (risk of death by stake through the heart…) by writing this post. And it’s a risk I’m willing to take. So bring on the comments!!

Stephanie Meyer was on Ellen today and she really rubbed me the wrong way. She came out acting like she had never picked up a pen and paper before, suddenly had a dream and ta dum! Twilight + 4 books were born.

Ellen: “But had you written before, ever?”

Stephanie: “No, no.”

Ellen: “Never?”

Stephanie: Nervously giggles

C’mon Stephanie. You must have written something before Twilight. You have a Bachelor’s Degree in English from BYU. The bio on your own Official Site says so. This was taken from the BYU English Majors Requirement page:

4. Because upper-division English courses require substantial writing, it is strongly recommended that students complete their Advanced Written and Oral Communications requirement as they begin their first upper-division courses, preferably in the second semester of their sophomore year.

Substantial writing. Hmm. I know you really meant to say “Other than the course work I did in college along with the other projects I’ve worked on that I didn’t have luck getting published before I became famous, I haven’t ever written.” Right? I don’t know…something about the entire interview just bugged me. Blah. Did anyone else see it? What did you think?
