Actual Train of Thought

March 15, 2009 @ 12:53 pm | Filed under:

I had just read these lines at Toddled Dredge, where Veronica so often makes me grin:

During my hiatus, I read Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight. Apparently it is a requirement of being a thirty-something housewife (it’s on the list right between “make ironic references to eighties pop” and “own yoga pants”).

And I thought:

Hey, that’s three strikes for me—I haven’t read Twilight, I don’t own yoga pants, and when I make references to eighties pop I am nearly always completely sincere. (Oh Adam Ant, how I miss you.) (Sincerely.) Huh, guess I’m not a typical thirty-something housewife. OH WAIT I’M NOT A THIRTY-SOMETHING HOUSEWIFE AT ALL NOW THAT I AM FORTY.

Sometimes I forget.

    Guess that is why Twilight doesn’t appeal to me either.

    Hee hee.
    I’ve mostly managed to avoid Twilight-mania, mainly because I’m just REALLY TIRED of vampires. New monster, please!

    Adam Ant?!? Me too. And I haven’t read Twilight either.

    Are the yoga pants actually for doing yoga? Or is everyone else, like me, trying to pass them off as dressier-than-jeans pants?

    Another non-Twilight reading forty-something mama here too.

    I *used* to have yoga pants… in my thirties… LOL

    I’m more of a Hall & Oats fan myself… (good heavens don’t tell anyone!)

    “make ironic references to eighties pop”…
    Maybe it should be “make references to iconic eighties pop.”
