So Kristin and I went to see New Moon last night.
I'd like to clarify something for a moment.
I DID read the books. I am NOT one of those 30 something-year-olds wearing a Twilight tee shirt to the movie and I do not have couragish longings for teenage vampires. (And besides, I am quite SURE that you have to be at LEAST 40 to be considered a Cougar anyway.)
That said, I have to mention that when Taylor Lautner took off his shirt for the first time there were AUDIBLE (not from me) gasps and giggles in the theater. Audible. From a lot of people. I've never heard that before at a movie. I think I blushed but it was too dark to tell. I spent much of the time that he had his shirt off, slightly embarrassed that I was looking (intently).
Anyway, the movie was good. Much less hokey than Twilight and Bella didn't look like she was suffering through a stomach bug through this entire movie. I have to say, I think I'm one of the few people who find the Jacob/Bella story more compelling than the epic love of Bella and Edward. I can clearly see how being with a werewolf would have distinct advantages over being with a vampire (abs notwithstanding).
Oh, did I just say that out loud???
