And speaking of the walking dead...

Once again, I must apologize to my loyal (and obviously insane) readers for my recent lack of posts. What I've been doing in my absence is simply enjoying the outdoors before the last weeks of summer are gone. I HAD to get a little sun time - I was starting to look like a vampire.

And speaking of the walking dead, what the fuck is up with grown adults incessantly  talking about how they love to read the 'Twilight' series? Seriously, these books are meant for teenagers. I don’t care that you think adults can enjoy them too...they’re not for you. Sweet Imaginary Baby Jesus - just let it go.

Inevitably these stories-for-tweens-lovin' freaks corner you with the relentless and infuriating bloodsucker inquisition. I’ll usually try to politely break the news that 'Twilight' isn’t really my thing, and hopefully gently deflect the topic. Very rarely does the information that I haven’t read any of the books get a pass. Thus begins the conversation I've had a thousand times:

“Really, you haven't read 'Twilight'?! Oh, you should, they’re great.”
"Yeah, I've-"
"They're not just for kids! You should read one, you'll love it!"
“Nah… I don’t think I’d really enjo-“
“That’s what I thought and then I read just one, and now I’m hooked!”
“Great, but I’m still not –“
“Just read one, I promise you’ll get into it! You can borrow mine.”

Damn people, back up OFF my puss - are you getting paid for this? Is this a pyramid scheme? Wait, I get it…this is Scientology, right?

I swear these people are a hair cut and a robe away from crazy. I’m talking matching turquoise running suits crazy. 

Listen 'Twilight' people, I haven’t read the books. I will never read the books. Ever. Understand? Actually, you know what? I don’t think you DO understand me, so let me make it very clear…

I would rather swallow a roll of razor wire.

I would rather eat a used baby diaper.

I would rather forcibly shove a glass thermometer deep into my cervix and smash it with a hammer.

I would rather ride a unicycle with a machete for a seat.

I would rather sucker punch a gang member and try to run away wearing ski boots.

The day I read 'Twilight' is the day I get invited by Bill and Ted to travel back in time to cut Jesus’ umbilical chord with a lightsaber.

I would rather drink a gravel and Drano smoothie.

I would rather wipe my ass with fiberglass insulation.

The day I read 'Twilight' is the day Mr. T stops pitying fools.

I would rather have unprotected sex with a Taiwanese transsexual.

I would rather swim in a dumpster full of vomit.

The day I read 'Twilight' is the day I stick my tongue out at the Pope and knock his hat off.

I would rather siphon a septic tank.

The day I read 'Twilight' is the day I breakdance fight a sasquatch, and lose.

I would rather open mouth kiss a crocodile.

The day I read 'Twilight' is the day I have a three way with the Green Lantern and Skeletor on the back of a unicorn.

The day I read 'Twilight' is the day I pull a switch blade on E.T. over an argument concerning Brazil’s steadily growing agricultural market, and the impact on U.S. farming economy.

The day I read 'Twilight' is the day I have a harmonica jam with the FOX news anchors.

I would rather brush my teeth with shitpaste.

I'd rather be buried alive.

The day I read 'Twilight' is the day I give Papa Smurf a beej in the bathroom at Castle Greyskull.

'Twilight' fans, listen to me. And listen good, you vile buncha conformists... STOP trying to recruit me to your inner reading circle! I will NEVER read 'Twilight'. Ever. Truth be told, I would prefer to read a more creative work of fiction. Something that's REALLY 'out there', as opposed to yet another tired vampire saga. You know, something a bit more imaginative... like the bible.

You have all been named douchebag of the day for your poor reading list choices. On a scale of one to ten, fuck off.

HAHAHAHA! I totally agree. Talk about brain-dead..."Twilight" is definitely for dead brains. I really hate the fact that any it literature, TV shows, movies, art in general (paintings....blah, blah, exhibits, has really turned to shit. I am referring to popular "art" if that is what you want to call it. What happened to quality? T.V., computers (abuse of that is), video games, modern technology, etc, has really allowed for people to take their brains out and flush them down the toilet. Me? Well, I still have a brain and so apparently do you. Why can't people see the absurdity of the cheap crap that is being dished out to the public? Boo hoo!!!! Bleh!!! Oh, yeah, Did you hear about "Twilight"? That shit is da bomb. IDIOTS!

Now that's the Kim we know and love. I mentioned 'Twilight' to my 13 yr old niece, & she wondered why an adult would WANT to read about teenagers when they had their own books? So there you have it!

The 3-way on a unicorn is a painful visual. I have a bible you can borrow ;)

Genius! I completely agree. "Some angst ridden, misogynistic vampire garbage...really you want me to read that shit? Next thing you'll be telling me that Harry Potter is for adults. Loser. Read a proper book like Crime and Punishment you dick."

Hey I read twilight when I was pregnant so does that mean I am not crazy since I was obviously under some kind of weird influence. I do not push the series on others.

DirtDog, Sounds like a helluva good idea!

I couldn't agree with you more. It's just like those ADULTS who read Harry Potter. I don't get it and never will. Grow up and read a book written for adults already. Geez.

I agree with you so much that there are not words to emphasize it enough! I thought it was bad enough when my youngest tried to recruit me, but then the (adult) cashier at Target tried to recruit me the other day. Why would any adult want to read 'Twilight?????' It's a teen vampire romance novel and no amount of vampire will change the teen romance part!!! I will never, ever read 'Twilight' and I love most things vampire. I also never say 'never' about anything, but I'm pretty sure about this one.

Have a great day!
