I'm doing the 8 things that make me happy in 8 days meme. Here's day one:

+ I got petrol for only 89.7 cents a litre! Compared to the 1.70 a litre that it was a while ago, that's fricken awesome!!
+ We had cake for morning tea.
+ The stats that I'm doing at the moment are significant!! YAY!
+ I've been rewatching season 3 of Due South again. I absolutely love it. Oh Callum and Paul, how are you so awesome?
+ I'm re-reading Twilight again. It's my kind of crack!
+ [profile] fawkesielady_ed sent me 5 cds of music! (Thanks again hon!)
+ I've finally finished paying off my credit cards and can start saving for my next holiday!
+ I'm going to Sydney in only 38 days!

In other news, where has this year gone? I can't believe it's almost Christmas. I feel so unprepared. I haven't done much shopping yet, and I haven't even thought about Christmas cards. I swear that there must be some kind of crack in the space-time continuum that's making time go quicker for me.
kaaatie: (Twilight: Bella and Edward)
So, I'm still completely addicted to the Twilight Series (it's like I'm channelling a 15 year old girl or something!!)

I've now finished Twilight, New Moon and Midnight Sun, and I've read almost half of Eclipse.

I can't really explain the attraction --- in theory, it doesn't have much going for it. The writing isn't amazing, the story isn't particularly unique, and I'm usually incredibly frustrated by teenage angst and drama. But yet, I can't put them down! It's just... addictive! A strange, undeniable, irresistible addiction.

It's that perfect kind of mindless drivel. The books that I usually read require a lot of concentration, and since I read so much at work, when I get home, the last thing that I usually want to do is read something else that will require me to think. With Twilight, my mind can relax, and I can become completely engrossed in the book and forget about everything else. Like a drug!

More under the cut - nothing that I consider spoilery )
