Twilight, isn't that the time between day and night?

Okay I will admit that I have never been one to keep up with the latest  and greatest. 

So my sister was making fun of the other day - my much older sister.  You see I have never been one to follow celebrities, the latest movies or most popular books.  I posted on Facebook that it was VERY foggy that morning.  A teen friend of mine posted that she was in Forks, WA.  This kind of confused me as it was a school day, but I assumed it must be some school trip.  Then my sister asked if I saw sparkly people.  HUH?  Well it went on from there and I was the only one who did not have a clue.  My sister did finally clue me in to what they were talking about - the Twilight books. 

My sister mentioned that popular culture has never been my interest and she is right, but maybe that needs to change.  Maybe I need to catch up a bit - after all if my sister can text then maybe I can figure it out too.  So I have made a pledge to investigate and catch up a bit. 
First I sent a text to my occasional baby sitter and one to my sister too - they were both shocked. I do love reading even if time is limited, so I put the Twilight book on reserve at the library. I have a Kindle, but it is still in the box it came in at Christmas.  As for movies, I have no idea where to start.  We have a Netflix account, do you have any suggestions on what we should rent?   The theater is not a good option for me since "in town" we only have 2 screens.  I am also, as I am sure you guessed,  working on blogging too.  I hope to be able to ad pictures to my next post. 

I would love to hear from you on what you think I should check out or try. What am I missing?  Any ideas or thoughts?

I'm afraid I can't help you, Carol, 'cuz I probably could have written the same thing you just did. I tried texting once, but couldn't figure out have to do numbers & gave up. I have an iPhone now, so I could probably do it, but don't see the point.

You need to check out the up and coming iPad. I want one! Also, I think you need to get the Xbox Natal and we should too and then our families can have family game night together!
