    OMG Savannah! That is the funniest thing I've read in a long while. The post about flatulance cracked me up! Thanks for sharing.

      o my!!! thats so funny!!.. thanks for that... as for the sex in the novel and appropriateness for children I think that If you can get through them then they should be allowed to read them... i agree with Savannah about the whole married part and the fact that there is never any detail about their encounters which is alot less than you see from music videos and the like.... IMO, if we 'censor' books for children we are asking for trouble because they will feel like they need to read it more and if they feel some sort of restraint in their behaviours then we are pretty much just asking for them to get into trouble...

        I'm glad I'm not the only one who feels this way. I don't like to make waves when I post (far too shy for my own good), but I am so passionate about not censoring reading material, I can sometimes get carried away. You two both said exactly what I feel, and I didn't need to get myself into trouble to do it. I'm a librarian so encouraging reading is a big thing for me, especially with children. They have so many distractions coming at them these days (tv, video games, the internet), when they show an interest in a book the least that adults can do is read along with them if they aren't sure of the subject matter. This way it opens up discussions rather than hiding so-called inappropriateness and making the kids more curious. And we all know what kids do when they are too curious...they find ways to get what they aren't supposed to have. I know, I read Flowers in the Attic when I was nine behind my mom's back (shhh!!) in my aunt's basement. Loved the book, understood it perfectly, but I would have rather read it with my mom's blessing than having to be sneaky about it.

        I stumbled upon this blog a while back, and thought you guys might get as much of a kick out of it as I did: TWITARDED: Edward Mini Makes Me Eat My Own Words

        And this is by far the funniest Twilight recap I've ever seen. m15m: Twilight in Fifteen Minutes

          Thanks for the advice!! I don't have a problem with the kids reading the books at home with their parents' permision, but I do not think they should be reading them at school at such a young age (3rd and 4th books). First of all, the difficulty level is too high for most 3rd graders. I don't let them read anything that was too difficult for them. I would also not make the books available to them in my classroom because then parents might complain that they are too mature for their kids. (It has happened in the past with other books) But I do think there is a difference on what can be read at school and what is read at home.

          Also, thanks to Savannah (again) for that hilarious website!!! Did your husband make that? LOL!!

          Jenn - thanks for your links too! SO funny!! :)

            Does anyone have a copy of the Midnight Sun that I can print out? I have the link from the website but I can't print it so I can snuggle up and read it in bed! I'll love you forever if someone can PM it to me!!!

                  This is probably blasphemous to the Twihards, but I just don't like Kristen. She's OK as Bella, though not who I pictured or would have cast. But something about her eyeliner or something just irks me. I thought she looked like hell at the MTV awards. Some people can have a funky style and pull it off. I don't think she is one of those people.

                  As far as her being with Rob, who knows. I think you would have to form some kind of relationship with someone you worked that closely with and kissed all the time on set. I think it also depends on your personality. I have a very affectionate bunch of friends and we kiss hello or put our arms around each other and it's not a big deal, we just have that level of comfort. With the shooting schedule the cast probably doesn't have a lot of extra time to spend with a SO.

                  I haven't really read anything other than the tabloid headlines so I can't really say if I think they are a secret couple.

                  Does anyone know if they will make the other books into movies? I thought I read somewhere that they were going to film them back to back, like Harry Potter or Lord of the Rings because of ages, etc.

                    I don't know Jax...I wouldn't be surprised if it is a stunt OR if it is real. A friend of mine is an actress and she said that it is very common for costars to have real feeling for each other. She said it is sometimes hard to separate the feeling you make yourself feel for your costar and real feelings. That they transfer over, especially in less experienced actors. The tabloids do also jum on anything and blow things out of proportion/context.

                    Erin - I also do not like Kristen's new look. I don't think the black hair & rocker/mullet cut suits her.

                      They are starting filming on Eclipse in August, but no word on Breaking Dawn yet. Members of the cast have said they are going to film it, but there are no set in stone plans for directors or timelines yet. The tentative release date right now for Eclipse in theatres is June 2010...I'm keeping my fingers crossed that is true!
