If you’re plugged into pop culture, it’s everywhere you turn: Kristen Stewart…Robert Pattinson…Twilight frenzy…New Moon trailers…when will the madness stop?! My knee-jerk reaction is to throw a quilt over my shoulders, boil a cup of tea and grumble on my front porch about kids these days as mewing cats circle my ankles–but surely I’m not so out of touch with those Twilight-loving youngsters (and oldsters…you know who you are!) that I can’t see the appeal.
So. Kristen Stewart.
She’s pouty, she’s moody, she’s oddly pinched in the face, and she doesn’t appear to care how her hair and makeup look. She’s totally different from the Hollywood Zombies currently being stuffed down our throats by paparazzi.
Wait a minute! On second thought, she’s awesome!

By all accounts, she’s a darn cool girl–just nineteen, so painfully young–and one who happens to be lucky enough (or unlucky enough) to have fallen for the Teenage Catnip Adonis from Above that is Rob Pattinson.
I might not completely understand it. But I’m not ready to embrace my inner grandmother either. So…let’s give it a go one more time. D.–can you relend me your copy of Twilight?
