DNA Malfunctions

I think I am missing a few standard-issue female genes. Like the ones that cause most women to enjoy shopping and manicures, and to buy a purse to match every outfit they own.

But those things are relatively minor flaws in my girliness, I admit. So in the way of more serious confessions, here is a true shocker: I cannot stand Stephenie Meyer's "Twilight" vampire series. I know I'm setting myself up for hate mail from half the women I know, but seriously, Bella is such an idiot, and "Twilight" is just not a love story. And that's all I can say about it because if I dwell on the subject any longer I will get so worked up I will be unable to speak rationally.

Like I said, I must be missing something.

Those books drive me nuts as well, and most of my friends are considering disowning me. Um, yes, let's encourage young women to fall for dangerous guys who will cause them harm because, hey, they are so "beautiful".

I can't say one way or the other since I haven't read them, but I CAN say I really have no desire to read them...
