Maybe I should give that new vampire movie a chance...

I’ve been skimming through the Nablopomo soup thread to see what everyone else is writing about.  Some are talking about the new Breaking Dawn movie.

Is that one of those Twilight movies?

I’m so out of touch with the latest pop culture, but I’m guessing that’s what it is.

I have yet to read or watch any of the Twilight series.  Nor have I read or seen any of the Harry Potter series. 

Is there anyone else in the country not confined to a nursing home who can say the same?

I’m just not into the fantasy genre.  I have watched a couple of the Lord of the Rings movies and enjoyed them, and one of these days, I want to read the series.

Maybe I’m just being stubborn…I could be cheating myself out of something I’d really enjoy.

Maybe the taste for fantasy is an acquired taste, like learning to like broccoli or coffee.   After all, I resisted American Idol until about the sixth season, until I eventually got caught up in it with my girls.

We began to make a date night of it of sorts and passed many cold winter evenings sipping orange spice tea and puzzling over the bizarre behavior of Paula Abdul.  

I’m already looking forward to January and the beginning of a new season although I still miss Simon somethin’ awful.

  1. Ha! I read The Lord of the Rings series several times as a teenager, even though I'm not a true fantasy buff.

    I resisted the Twilight series as long as I could, but I have now read it. I teach English at a community college and I felt too far out of the loop not knowing what Twilight was all about!

    Like you, I haven't read Harry Potter yet. I plan to read it sometime, and I expect I'll like it.

    I know I'm hopelessly out-of-date with most pop culture, but maybe that makes me "quaint"? :-) Like an old quilt???
