Someone please pass me a tissue so I can stem the bleeding from my ears.

This was a comment I left on The Book Pixie's post about the same book and I tickled myself so damn much with it I had to post it here. Is that bad?


Learning vocabulary from Twilight is like learning dining etiquette from Jeffrey Dahmer.

I can haz brainz nao. This is were yule end up leaning words if yule us Twilight.

Put the liquids down NOW! It's of the utmost impotence!

I saw this book in August when I was walking out of Borders and thought, "WT-effin-F?!?" The back cover cracked me up.

My second thought: "What is this book going to teach kids ... the meaning of golden, topaz, rainy, beautiful, sadly, slowly, unconditionally, and irrevocably?"

I'm not attempting to knock Twilight here, but even people that love the books rag on the vocab. So seriously? Se-ri-ous-ly?

But what the hell. If it teaches even one kid a new word ... Nah, it's still creepy. :)

I found it in the Park Bench blog (google it it's a great blog), although Withering Heights=Abusive/Self-Destructive Relationship=Twilight=Abusive/Self-Destructive Relationship.

So yeah!

I guess there are still people out there who don't know the meaning of "chuckle"

Twilight has thoroughly become the whore on the corner with torn fishnets and bad make-up.

I've actually met Taylor Mali! He's really really awesome in person, and his slam poetry is fantastic. I love his poem about teaching, "I'll tell you what I make, I make a fucking difference" plus his poem "Like Lily, Like Wilson" is awesome. I agree 100% with your comment about Defining Twilight. Twilight is not the place to learn new words.
