How did you pick your screen name?
When I saw the Eclipse movie, I wore a shirt that says “Be careful what you say, it’ll probably remind me of Twilight.” Everyone I know said that was perfect for me…since I am constantly making Twilight references. I had to cut it a few letters short when I registered though, so it's "EverythingRemindsMeOfTwili" instead of the makes a little more sense, "EverythingRemindsMeOfTwilight". :P

How did you come to read Twilight and which book is your favorite?
I was a stay-at-home Mom with 2 young kids and I hadn’t read a book in years. I was desperate to read something that I’d never read before and everyone kept talking about this Twilight book, so I bought the first to give it a try and couldn’t put it down. My kids were sick, so I sent my husband out for the next 3 and finished them all in 5 days (which considering the cooties and chaos was rather remarkable…totally could have had them done sooner otherwise). My favorite book is Eclipse.

Who do you like best: Edward, Bella, or Jacob?
Ummm….is this a loaded question? I really don’t know that I could pick just one that I could say I like the “best” because they’re all such different people. It would feel like someone asking me which of my daughters I liked best. They’re such highly individualized entities and there’s something awesome and loveable about all of them. I, personally, relate so much to Edward’s freaking out and overprotective-ness, and “old-fashioned” ways and his frustration trying to read Bella’s mind; and I also relate to Bella’s not fitting in anywhere that’s “normal” and being self-conscious and never wearing makeup (I know that may seem silly but growing up in L.A., it’s a big deal) and her bravery and self-sacrifice and trying to take care of everyone else first; but again I also relate to Jake—he’s honest, he’s funny, he’s sarcastic, he’s protective of the people he loves and he stumbles trying to do things well. Do I have to pick just one? …..if I ABSOLUTELY had to, then maybe it might be Bella---because let’s face it, I’m a woman and her point of view, I REALLY understand.

Who is your favorite minor character?
Let’s see…Carlisle, Alice, Jasper, Emmett, Esme, Rosalie, Charlie, Seth, Renesmee….how do I pick just one?

What are your hobbies?
Mostly talking to my mom and sisters—a LOT! Little kids don’t leave time for a lot of hobbies but I do like to read (obviously), crotchet and cross stitch some, I’d play World of Warcraft if I had more time...

Where are you from (general area like Montana, not exact town!)
California

How old are you? (In general, like teen, 20's, 30's, 40's etc)
Early 30’s

Looking forward to discussing all things Twilight with all of you!!
