After I finished rereading New Moon, I posted the following on Facebook:
The second book of the Twilight Saga helped me realize 3 things:
1. Bella Swan might be the dumbest character in the history of the written word.
2. After reading and rereading the phrases “velvet voice” and “hole in my chest” my brain is considering the benefits of self-defenestration via the windows of my eye sockets.
The responses to the status update were very interesting; the public and the private ones. I will discuss both (particularly the latter) this weekend. Hm, I seem to have forgotten the 3rd realization. Mayhap it helped me feel more sparkly? Nah, I was already glittery to the bone ;-)

Nobody said it was easy… No one ever said it would be this hard.”
