I'm gonna live forever ...

... or at least until the 11pm news.

I took a media call today about, of all things, Twilight (or rather, The Twilight Saga: New Moon) and 10 minutes later, a TV news reporter and her camera guy pulled up to my office and asked me some questions on camera, and 3 minutes after that, it was all done.

Two hours later, interspersed among clips teenagers in high school parking lots talking about Taylor Lautner's hotness and random people at the mall food court decrying teen lit, is a five second clip of me talking about the sexual tension in the novel and how we're never sure Bella is going to become a vampire or not. Immediate cut to a scene from the film, a juxtaposition sure never to be repeated.

Me.

Then Edward.

Then Bella.

(Oh my.)

Then we switched over to Treehouse on demand for a command performance of Dora and Diego save the lost spectacled bears.

Media stardom was exciting, while it lasted.

You did look fetching in your purple coat though. Serious coveting over here.

i wish i could have caught you - just i haven't had a television inside my home for three years now...i'm sure you were brilliant though! someone just gave me the first book so i'll have to check it out. i thought the film was awful LOL but i liked the young girl in it (Bella) - i liked that she wasn't cast stereotypically "stunning"/model beauty-type - she is very beautiful but in an unusual way, now what you'd expect. maybe i would like the film better once i read the actual book (or maybe i will think it's still bad) ;) wish i could have caught you on the telly, though!
