I'm stuck at home on the couch today with my box of kleenex and a sinus infection. My body doesn't feel capable of much and being alone in the house provided me with the opportunity to finally watch Twilight. I've never really seen the appeal. I wanted to read the books just to see what the hype was about, and while I still can't speak for the story in the books, I can finally see why there is this obsession with Edward Cullen.
Twilight is crack-cocaine-porn for women.
Watching the on-screen interaction between Edward and Bella left me breathless more than once. Is that what we want as women? Is it the utterly passionate longing that makes us go weak in the knees? Girls long to experience it, and women want to experience it again.
