Regression

Something strang is happening to me, and I can't quite explain it.

I'm regressing back into my teenager years. Only with better hair.

Perhaps I'm having an early mid-life crisis, although I'm only in my early-thirties, so I doubt that is what it is.

Maybe it's just me. I mean, I certainly still sometimes feel like I'm just 'playing house'.

I'm a mom of two, yet my two favourite things right now, (besides my children, of course) are:

GLEE

and

TWILIGHT



And Twilight, the biggest selling book in 2008, the first book in a series of four books about a high school student who falls in love with a vampire, is totally awesome, okay?

Edward and Bella. Sigh.

And Oh, my God. I cannot put this book down.

I feel like I'm a teenager again! I never in a million years thought I would read this book, let alone see the movie. And yet, one night, Twilight was on TV. So I watched it. And a few days later, I went out and bought the books. Yup, I did. And I'm a 33 year old mother of two. I'm reading books that teenagers are reading. And I know I will be lining up next week to see New Moon, the next movie in the series.

Who is with me here? Did you fall in love with Twilight, too? It's so romantic...and dark... and just... addictive.

And what about Glee?



The best one-hour on television right now? I think so! This musical-comedy is a totally fun show to watch. The music is fantastic - and the characters are great, too. I'm hooked! Again, this is a show about teenagers. Oh, and the teachers. I love the teachers. Especially Sue. And I love it... are you a Gleek, too? (You can even take a quiz to find out!)

So what does this all say about me? Well, that I'm young at heart, of course! And there is nothing wrong with that, right?

Now... back to reading Twilight...

You are not alone! Twilight Moms unite!
I love this series, but admit, I felt a bit silly when I was at a family party last year and realized I was discussing a book with my 11 year old cousin. I got over it. Can't wait to see New Moon!

I have posted randomly on my blog on more than one occasion about my obsession w/ this series. I started reading way back when it was totally not even a big thing and I have stayed with the series through all the craziness... just utter JOY... for me... I LOVE Vampires and this is such a great series. I already have my tickets for next week!

T Rex Mom said...

We're all entitled to some regression once in a while!

Nenette AM said...

OMG, yes, me too! I read the series last fall because I was thinking of watching the movie when it came out.
Well, of course, I would've been trampled if I did, so I ended up waiting to see the movie until a couple of months ago.

Meanwhile, I continued to read all 4 books a total of 5 times.

I'm a totally addicted 40yo woman! Oh, the shame of it all!

Right there with ya!

Lady Mama said...

Oh no! You have gone to the dark side Loukia! Just kidding. I love Glee but am not into Twighlight. Anyway it's fun to regress once in a while.

HaB said...

Glee is just not my cup of tea. I don't know - I feel like I missed the boat on that one. I have tried and tried and tried to watch it, but, it just does not catch my interest.

Twilight.....Oh...how I adore thee! I read all four books in less than a week - I don't think I slept at all that week - between work, and Madaline and life in general. Ohh...I love me some Twilight. I can't wait for the movie to be out on Friday.

blueviolet said...

I'm so sad because I feel like I've totally been missing the boat here!

I need to regress as well!

Yikes. What does it mean if I am a 28-year-old father of one who's ultra-secret guilty pleasure is Twilight (and reading blogs). My wife won't even read the books and I've yet to discover how on earth I'll see the movie. I can't go with another guy, the wife won't go, so I'm afraid I'm left with Netflix (or a late night showing when I sit in the back).

Edward Cullen is the love of my life.

Brittany said...

Sweetie, we share a brain!

I never meant to get hooked, but Twilight was on, I watched it, four days later I finished all the books and my house was a mess.

I don't know what happened.

And now? 7 days until New Moon.

I am apparently 16.

Mommy Melee said...

I don't think I ever progressed beyond 14, to be honest.

Karl said...

I hate Twilight. Haven't seen Glee. And yet, still I find you irresistable. Odd.

HappyHourSue said...

Welcome to your Inappropriate Twilight Obsession, (and thanks for stopping by the blog...)

You're not alone. 6 more days.......and also? When you're done with the books and feel like your life is over, move on to Twilight (hotttttt) fanfiction. I recommend The Office, The List and Wide Awake.

and regarding Glee? PUUUUUUCCCCCCCCKKKKKK. **sigh**

Krystyn said...

You are not alone at all! This mom read all of them. In fact, I read the last two when I was nursing, pumping, late night feedings, etc. I haven't read them again, but I'm thinking a repeat is coming!

Leslie said...

I have asked my boyfriend if he would consider pretending to be Edward...you know, since he bought me the first book...he looked at me like I had lost my mind.

Wait until New Moon, Eclipse & Breaking Dawn come your way...*swoooooon*

PS - I am totally Team Jacob in New Moon, and I think it's against the law to be so attracted to Taylor Lautner! haha!

I had very little interest in Twilight but somehow ended up with the first book. So of course, I couldn't put it down and plowed through the next three in short order. I just HAD to know if Bella would really become a vampire.

But yeah - they're badly written teenager books. So it really is hard to admit that you read and maybe even (gasp) enjoyed it.

Haven't see Glee yet. But I think I have to order season 1 on Netflix.

Jillian Livingston said...

I too have boys, 3, and I consider myself lucky if I find a book, any book, that can hold my attention.

The last book I read, The Tender Bar, was one of the best books I had ever read. J.R. Moehringer kept me up until three in the morning almost every night. My kids suffered from it though as I was not as charming with out my sleep.

I have not yet read Twilight but loved all the Anne Rice books. I'll give a shot.

Maria said...

Edward Cullen forever :)

Sara @ Domestically Challenged said...

Um, I am {not} a member of this club...I am the president. Just ask any of my students! I am pretty sure edward is going to marry me.

Scattered Mom said...

I have zero interest in Twilight. Haven't read the books or seen the movies.

I also haven't watched Glee yet, mostly because I'm not a TV watcher in general. I might check it out, if I can ever wrestle the remote from Hub's clutches.

Linda @ My Trendy Tykes said...

I still haven't seen Glee yet But Twilight??? Ah, I just don't get it. I really don't.

Trueblood.....now there's a REAL GOOD Vampire show!

Pres. Kathy said...

I have to admit that I don't follow these, but your post put a smile on my face. It reminded me of many years ago when my cousins and I went to an N'Sync concert. While we were in the bathroom, a lady came up tp me and commented, "So you are stuck here with your little girl too?" I just giggled. If only she knew that a group of 6 women were there to watch the show! :-) I have to say though, we had a blast!!!! Have a wonderful weekend!

Chrissy MacCEO said...

Hey--stop by my blog---I tagged you...you're it!

Crystal D said...

I love both things too!
I practically jump of my couch and break out in song and dance when I watch Glee. LOL My husband just rolls his eyes. I would totally join an adult Glee club. ;-)

Neena said...

so glad you're finally regressing like the rest of us!!!

Courtney Kirkland said...

YEAH For Twilight Moms! Welcome to the obsession. You've started just in time to see the "New Moon" movie. I started the books earlier this year and could not put them down. I read the whole series in 4 days. I think it's called...addiction. :)

Shannon @ AnchorMommy said...

I guess I'm missing out. I'm hearing SO much talk about Glee and Twilight lately! Thanks a lot, Loukia. Now I just feel old. ;-)

Lesley said...

I'm a twilight mama.....my husband was worried about me for awhile I think!

Jessica said...

You and the rest of the world! Enjoy it- consider it a rebirth of your teenage years rather than a "Midlife" crisis :) Now go out and find some Electric Youth and rock it, mama! xo

Nap Warden said...

OMG...Glee! I love Glee! I am also all over New Moon...but don't tell anyone;)

hoobingfamilyadventures.com said...

Twilight totally got me through the first trimester of my pregnancy, giving me something to look forward to after work each day. I am definitely not one of the obsessed and started to become a little annoyed at parts of the series but who am I kidding, I couldn't put it down!

Am new to your site and like it a lot! Kudos!

Jessica said...

Hahahah You're so funny. And I'm RIGHT THERE WITH YOU!!

Anthony's constantly making fun of my obsession with Edward and my best friend and I always argue for our teams (she's Team Jacob).

You know what it is, right?? It's because Edward is the perfect man: eternally 17 outwardly (remember a 17 yo's sex drive??), but he's 100+ years old. You can't get better than that! And anyone who thinks Jacob, a little ol' wolf is better than that, is just plain crazy! haha

Re: Glee, man, that show's like crack. You know I started watching it cuz of you?? Yep, you made me an addict, too!!

We can watch reruns at BlogHer next year hehehe

I'm a 27-year old male and I teach English at a sixth form (that's the British version of high school) I'm not a big Twilight fan although my students are - I've read the first two books, which are quite addictive, but not entirely my thing. If it's any consolation, a friend of mine, who is in her early thirties, mother of twins and a university lecturer in children's lit and narratology, is hooked though... And now to Glee... I LOVE IT. I'm totally hooked and I cannot wait to see more. I've been singing in choirs since the age of 11 and currently rehearse every Saturday afternoon. Sadly we tend to perform rather more classical pieces and I'd love to do contemporary work. I do amateur dramatics and singing with my students at school and it's a blast - the more I teach teens, the more I seem to be on their wavelength... This morning a student jokingly told me I'm becoming more like them everyday.
