Lewi sent me an email talking about the classes he is teaching this semester. The poor guy has to teach Twilight. In a literature course. I read the books, despite hating pretty much every second of it, because I was morbidly curious and I am also a completionist. I read lines out loud to Lewi and he cringed and once he told me he refused to read them or watch the movies because he didn't want to support SMeyer's career since she shouldn't have one, and I so agree.

I enjoy the movies. I enjoy them because the actors are basically aware the source material is largely bollocks so they get on getting on. And Jacob is yummy even though that makes me feel like a dirty old woman. Billy Burke's moustache, also. It is just amazing. The movies can whiz by in an hour and a half and it doesn't matter that they don't have much to them because it's trashy fun. The books though. They basically read like a how to guide to having no self-esteem and they go on FOREVER. Poor Lewis being forced to read them! It must be like exquisite torture. His own personal hell. I told him not to go into the light.

I should link him to the m15m review by Cleolinda when he's done. It will be his reward.

Speaking of good, trashy fun, I am now on season 5 of Grey's Anatomy. It is ridiculous, but JDM is in them again and his smiling face basically makes me feel better about the world at large.

...Helios just stole my sock, the ginger bitch!

Where and what is this place where 'Twilight' is part of official educational curriculum ? Please tell me, I really must know.
