    i am tickled pink! really, so thrilled... i just wish they wouldn't spread them out so much. oh-well.
    but i think that, if they do the book justice, then a climactic point to stop it would be... (dum-dum-DUM) right after she gived birth and Jacob and Edward both think she'd dead. or maybe right before that happens so when it stops we'll all scream "NOOOOooooo!!!"

    thanks for the fun ladies!
