Cyber-Mom here. I finally got my Mrs. Cope banner to work! So to the questions...'
How did you pick your screen name? The first car I ever purchased on my own was a hot little Nissan 240. I drove it up until two car seats just wouldn't fit in the jumpseats. We graduated to a Nissan Pathfinder and I drove it for 12 years. I sold it just this year and now I drive a...Toyota Highlander. I couldn't change my username though, it would confuse me as much as everyone else!
How did you come to read Twilight and which book is your favorite? I was a book snob...wouldn't read Twilight. Didn't "do" vampires. Vampires didn't constitute real literature. I had a friend who tried to force it on me again and again and I refused again and again. Just before Eclipse came out I was at my monthly book club when my firend was trying to give me Twilight yet again and another woman said completely in passing, "Oh, that was cute." That got my attention. This woman didn't read Harry Potter because it was evil. Clearly Twilight didn't fit any of my preconceived notions. The next time my friend offered me the book I took it. Still, it sat on my nightstand for a couple of weeks. I couldn't sleep one night (I read a lot in the middle of the night - let's hear it for being "older") so I picked up the book and began. I was not immediately hooked. Clearly Edward was the vampire but I spent the entire next day trying to figure out what he was doing in a high school and what Bella had done to tick him off. Then I had a V8 moment and realized...heeey...I could just read the rest of the book and find out. Yeah, I read all three books that fast, found my way to the Lex and met Stephenie at the Cincinnati book signing all within a few weeks time.
My favorite book, tough call. I love each of them for different reasons. Twilight introduced us to the characters. I fell in love with Jacob in New Moon, and Eclipse was just a fun ride. I think I'm gonna have to go with Eclipse. Of the first three, it's the one I re-read the most.
Who do you like best: Edward, Bella, or Jacob? I love Edward and adore Jacob.
Who is your favorite minor character? Mrs. Cope! The woman feels my pain.
What are your hobbies? I play the flute, play on my computer, I love spinning, chocolate and baking, and spend the most of my time trying to maintain my high maintenance family.
Where are you from? I'm originally from the San Francisco Bay Area, have moved a ton and now live in a tiny suburb of Cincinnati, Ohio.
How old are you? (In general, like teen, 20's, 30's, 40's etc) As my banner proudly declares, I'm 40-something. My birthday is next week and I'll be more something than forty.
Anything else? Will not mourn my post count. I'm looking forward just to being here again.
