Oh that's adorable!! What are the odds?
Speaking of odds, pandemonium broke out in our lounge roughly 20 minutes ago. I invited myself over to my mum's in the country coz I've got the day off work and I didn't realise she was having friends over. Anyway I was just sitting in the lounge with the friend's two teenage kids (very shy, sort of annoying) and I just happened to be watching The View. Anyway, Haley Joel Osment's sister was on, talking about Hannah Montana which she's apparently on, and then at the end of the interview they asked her what books she liked, and she said: "Oh well there's this great book I'm reading at the moment..."
And I suddenly thought Twilight.
Then she went on and said: "It's a series actually, it's three books..."
"And it's by Stephenie Meyer, and it's called Twilight."
And I was like .
And then she went on and said: "There are three books in the series, Twilight, New Moon and Eclipse."
And I said out loud: "That is unbelievable, I'm reading New Moon right now!"
And the two kids next to me suddenly went: "Oh my god I'm on Twilight/Eclipse!"
And I was like "You're joking!"
And then Whoopi Goldberg on TV interrupted Osment and said: "You're reading number one? Get out of here! I'm reading it too! I'm up to New Moon!"
And Osment's like: "That's amazing! I am in LOVE with it!"
And then my mum and her friend came into the room because they noticed that everyone, in the lounge AND on the TV, were talking and they were like "what's going on?"
And we're all talking about Twilight and then we point to the TV and say that THEY are discussing Twilight, and then my mum says "Oh I'm up to Eclipse!" And I'm like "What!?!?" and she tells me she borrowed number one from me and then went on and bought the other two. And then the friend says: "Oh yes I'm up to New Moon."
And then I swear, every single person on the TV and in my lounge were marvelling at the familiarity we all had with the books.
Is everybody all of a sudden reading these books???
