Teenage Girls Gone Wild


I forgot to blog about taking my daughter to the movie, "Twilight". This was a much-anticipated movie for my daughter because she read the book years ago and absolutely became addicted to the author and this series. I never read the book and didn't know what to expect, but after watching the teen flick I started reading the book. It's a quick read and I had to stop due to homework but I'll end up reading the whole series, I can tell.

Even as a 37 year old, I have to say that Robert Pattinson who played Edward in the movie is quite a good-looking lad and deserves the shrieks he received in the movie theater.

Speaking of the shrieks, it was absolutely wonderful to sit in the theater FULL of teenaged girls who swooned every time Edward displayed on the screen. The "ooohhhh's" and "ahhhh's" were so loud and I even heard a girl next to us say, "I wouldn't mind waking up to that every morning!". I looked over to see who said it and she must have been only 13 years old. What is the world coming to? I then sat there and tried to remember if I thought that way at 13. Well, sure I did! But I just never spoke it out loud to a bunch of strangers! The couth!!

I also remembered being at the movie theaters at 16 years of age watching the movie, "Dirty Dancing" for the first time. I had feelings in my privates I don't think I had felt before while watching a movie. Is that a bit too much information? Probably so, but I can't help it! My word, the way Patrick Swayze's hips undulated on the big screen was a bit too much for me. It's for sure that Swazye swayed around that movie! (OK, that was cheesy to say, but I HAD TO!)


Ahhh, the newness of youth! I would never go back to my teenage years but there are parts of it that I fondly remember. I just hope that my daughter's teenage years are filled with happy memories and not too many bad ones. I have tried very hard as her mother to ensure that. I hope it works out that way. Only time will tell.

I tried reading book #1 but it just didn't grab me and I didn't care for the writing style. I've heard good things about the movie though so I might rent it when it's available that way.

I see we are similar in age (I'm 34). I remember having a very strong response to Dirty Dancing as well...

I sure hope your daughter realizes that she has it pretty good - she's lucky to have you as her mom. You have such a wonderful spirit - it's infectious in your writing. I've offered you a wee bit of recognition today at my blog in gratitude. - John

Having a son takes me to all sorts of boy movies. Quite a different experience.

I always liked movies like Rocky, Superman, Star Wars, Alien and things like that. Unlike all the girls at school I never like chick flicks. I have actually never seen Dirty Dancing. Plus I loved any science fiction stuff or real kiddy movies. Animation movies I just love. Especially Japanese stuff.

Just as well I had a son. The thought of having to see High School Musical 3 would make me want to vomit.

Ha! Count me in as one of the 30-somethings in love not only with Robert Patinson (Edward) but also the Twilight series.

I want a boyfriend that sparkles!

Seriously, I now have a somewhat unhealthy obsession with vampires.
