My tiny little pity party

I'm just a tad bit miffed. All the girls, (my daughter, her friends, Jake's girlfriend, and all the teenage girls that normally hang out at my house, eating my cookies and giggling at my cute son) have mostly disappeared this weekend and left me all alone. 'Why?' you ask? And more importantly, 'why should I care?'
Because, they have all gathered together, in their constantly changing and rotating little cliques, and have spent this past weekend having multiple Twilight Parties, to oooh and ahhh over their personal copy of Twilight that has just been released on DVD. And not one of these snotty little brats has invited me to even one of their parties, nor have they offered to bring a copy to my house.

And because I have to pay bills, and shell out all kinds of time and money to bake cookies for these ungrateful little creeps, I have no moola to buy my own copy of Twilight until next week. (IF I'm lucky) Who was it that introduced them to Stephanie Meyer's work, and encouraged these silly little girls to actually READ the books to begin with? Who was it who loaded her mini van full of girls, and drove them to the bookstore for the midnight release of Breaking Dawn? Who was it who has loaned out all of her hardback copies of the Twilight Series to every teenage girl in the neighborhood; who then, loaned it to her friends, and her friends' friends? ME. That's who. It's just not fair !!! Oh well, I guess this is what happens when we get old. . . *sigh*

Hey I watched it (rented) on dvd yesterday and was amazed at how much I loved this movei - seriously I had no idea I would adore it as much as I did - do - and wow what a turn on a vampire can be right?!!

Oh that is SO NOT FAIR! No, no, no. Just because we are, ah, of a certain 'age' doesn't mean we don't want to stay up in our pj's, giggling and swooning over Edward with a bunch of other girls as we munch on popcorn. That sounds like fun. Maybe if you come to Canberra, we can have our own Twilight party :)
