Another Newbie

Postby StellaBlueBella » Wed Nov 10, 2010 12:56 pm

How did you pick your screen name? This is a name I have used for a long time.... When I was pregnant with my first child I was told he was going to be a SHE and I was going to name her Stella-Blue Bella after one of my favorite songs by the Grateful Dead "Stella Blue" which was inspired by Miles Davis' "Stella by Starlight", another great song. Anyway to my mother's great relief, I had a boy - two in fact, and never got to use my unusual name :( So I have satisfied my self by using at as my screen name.... Which happens to fit perfectly here!

How did you come to read Twilight and which book is your favorite? I became aware of the series through my 15 year old step-sister and just assumed it wasn't age appropriate for me - like a too short skirt or something. Then EVERYONE at work was talking about it and reading the books so I borrowed my sister Twilight DVD, had to rent New Moon the very next night and the day after that I was straight to the bookstore for Eclipse! (Of course I have read all the books a few times.) I was 8 months pregnant at the time and the heat index here was in the 110's - Forks and Edward's cold skin were the perfect escape.Thank You Stephenie!! Breaking Dawn is hands down my favorite book even though it was spoiled for me. I guess because I was pregnant I was immediately worried about Bella not being able to have a baby. A well meaning friend told me not to worry that Bella and Edward would have a baby. In her defense, people really don't like to see extremely pregnant women worry ;)

Who do you like best: Edward, Bella, or Jacob?
Wow that is a really hard question. Bella is definitely the most relatable; I was team Edward until Jacob's section in BD. I wanted Jacob to go find his own wolf-girl but once I got to know him through his POV - I love Jacob. Obviously, Bella and Edward are meant to be but I so want Jacob to find his happiness - he totally deserves it!

Who is your favorite minor character? Alice but I don't really consider her to be a minor character; Leah is my favorite truly minor character.

What are your hobbies? Reading, writing, hiking, biking, photograpy. Crafty stuff, for example I am into repurposing/recycling junk mail and old magazines into gift wrap, redecorating and then repurposing old jars and cans, etc.

Where are you from (general area like Montana, not exact town!) Sweet Home Alabama

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

Anything else you would like to share. So glad to know I am not the only one who thinks about this kinda stuff! Honestly, I didn't realize other people were so into to Twilight for a long time - I thought I was an odd ball or something, lol!
