My husband just actually turned to me and said "Baby am I your Edward?" .... "No, you're not really so much an Edward".... "Baby can I at least be your Jacob?".... "Sure sweetie"

Now remember, he has never read the series and repeatedly laughs at me for my obsession. I think he's jealous.

Lol.

It was really cute. I was actually just shocked he even knew the names of the characters.... okay not that shocked... I do sort of talk about it all the time.

He's always teasing me (playfully, of course) over my obsession. I have NEVER in my life been obsessed with anything, and I always teased him for his computer games, Lord of the Rings, and obsessions of that nature.... so now he is having fun with returning the favor.

I'm still determined to make him read!

Awww that's sweet. My boyfriend call Edward "The Vampire guy", Jacob "Wolf Boy", and Bella "The Confused One".

At least in his own way he's trying! How cute! I'm sure he'd probably hope to be your Edward, but he knows enough about Jacob to know he's in good company. At least he goes along with it all and isn't mean about your obsession, he sounds supportive and I've read around some threads that that isn't always the case. Some brownie points to your hubby!

My boyfriend gets mad when I tell him I think he'd be on Team Jacob (if he ever read the books) while I and most other people I know that have read them are Team Edward.

Maybe I'll make him a "Personal Space Heater" shirt to appease him. :)

On a different subject, how did you all find the series? I was drawn to it after seeing the first teaser trailer in the theaters. I then picked up Twilight and it was sitting on my shelf for a while ... I think subconsciously I knew I'd immediately get sucked into the world and I needed to wait until I had the time/was ready. Needless to say, I read the entire first three books in three nights and have been totally gone ever since. :)

I got hooked because I moved out of state and didn't start my new job for a couple of weeks so I needed something ot occupy my time and my friend back home told me about the books. I was like eh. ok and then it was all downhill from there I didn't talk to my husband the first 4 days and then wehn I'd reread them I'd be like ok it will last me more than 4 days. and it usually did it lasted 5 days. Lol. Now he's starting to read it but he doesn't like reading so it's like pulling teeth and nails to actually have him TRY and read it.

:lol: Your shirt idea made me laugh. You should totally do that.

I honestly avoided Twilight for over a year before agreeing to read it. My best friend borrowed it from her little sister, who, at the time, was in 8th grade. She read Twilight and New Moon and was raving about them, but when she told me about them, I assumed they'd be pretty lame and never read them. Then, the movie previews started playing and I realized that my 3 closest friends had ALL read the books and thought, "ok, I'll see what all the fuss is about".

I proceeded read all the books, including Breaking Dawn, in a 4 day period. I was gone before Edward and Bella even got to the Meadow. 8-)

Needless to say, I got sucked in and you know the rest of the story. :D


AND about what I intend to wear to the premier... I'll probably go in all black with colored contacts and appropriate pale make up. I'm also considering making a shirt that says either "La Tua Cantante" or "Edward can bite my pillows anytime". hahaha.
