The Roo-girl is currently OBSESSED with a series of books written by Stephenie Meyer.
It is the story of a reasonably ordinary girl who finds herself involved with a coven (coven? is that what they're called) of vampires who attend her high school.
Roo is very funny when she gets involved in something like this. She wants to share.
After she finished the first book, "Twilight," she thrust it at me and insisted that I read it too. Meanwhile, she threw herself into the second book, "New Moon," and then the third, "Eclipse" (which was, in fact, was what led to the ... ahem ... nakiness story from yesterday).
I finished the first book over the competition weekend, and I must admit I was sucked into the world of vampires too. (Heh, sucked into the world of vampires. I crack myself up sometimes!)
So now that Roo and I have this cast of characters in common, we can discuss it indepth. And the questions keep on coming from her:
"Who was your favorite character?"
"What color do you think Edward's hair is?"
"Did you like Jacob? I absolutely hate him."
"Who do you think should play Edward if they make a movie?"
I didn't have anyone in mind for the role of the drop-dead gorgeous, eternally romantic 17-year-old vampire. But Roo did.
"Johnny Depp ... TOTALLY!"
Johnny Depp? I looked at her and rolled my eyes. "Roo, he's too OLD to play a high school student."
"Oh, Mom," she retorted. "Johnny Depp is perfect. He's TIMELESS."
I think I'm going to be ill.
