No, my friends I'm not a super geek, but I am super geeked. You see, I went and saw New Moon last night (which BTW totally loved) and I left the theater smiling like a fool? Why? Was it Edward's sparkliness? Jacob's ripped bod?
It was the fact that all this media greatness started with a book, an idea, a dream. TWILIGHT, LOTR, HARRY POTTER - heck, LOVELY BONES has been made into a movie too.
I really get excited when books have a mass impact on culture and thus society. It makes my academic and creative brains go into a tizzy. I get so excited I'm not sure if I want to write a new novel or work on my dissertation. I just can't decide!!!!!
Either way, I'm happy. Life is good. Books are awesome. And it's Friday.
