Team Charlie

*I'm very excited to see Eclipse Monday with Madley for our date...I am as giddy as a school girl. Have you seen it?

I was telling Emily from Life at the White House that I am not on Team Jacob or Team Edward. I am on Team Charlie.

 I am a mature woman and I would still be sort of a cougar with our age differences (I'm 53 he's 46) but who cares. He has no teenage angst.

I'm thinking about making a TEAM CHARLIE T-shirt...what do you think?


*Update! We saw the movie and I was happy. I know there are those out there that criticize the Twilight mania, but I just like the light reading and story. I am not obsessed...I am smitten.

A few years ago, I found a newspaper at Borders in Mesa AZ, and there was an article on the front page about a local writer, Stephenie Meyer, and her the first book, Twilight. This was before most people knew about it. I was intrigued...vampires have always interested me. 

I like that the author is LDS (Mormon) because I am LDS and I like to support other LDS authors when I can.

I bought Twilight and liked it. I never thought it would take off like it has. Criticize all you want, I don't care. Don't read the books or watch the movies. Problem solved.

I read a lot of styles of books from YA, Fantasy to Mystery novels. I never read romance novels with Twilight being the exception.

I know I told you, but I am writing a is not fantasy or about vampires. But I guarantee laughter.

I love you as much as my Aunt Bessy's Peach Cobbler,



  1. NICE! Love it!! Then I can make my Team Mike Newton shirt to represent the realistic crowd. Underneath it I can write. "He won't kill you." ha ha. Ah, but no one would be that entertained, just me.

  2. I've been seeing the "Team Charlie" thing a lot and even though I saw the first two movies, I JUST NOW realized he's Bella's father. (I'm a little slow.)

    It's funny, I had some people over on Saturday to rewatch the first two movies (I don't care for them, but I like having people over, so ...). As we were watching, I was thinking that the best-looking and coolest guy of all the guys was her father! lol But then I realized that was gross in terms of the movie because he's her father and all. But for ME, yeah, it would be Charlie. If I had to choose or something.

    If not, it will always be Team Madmartigan.

  3. Thank you, Renee. I haven't read the books in a while and I couldn't think of who Charlie was.


  4. Renee~ Madmartigan...from Willow?

    I like Fantasy books and Twilight was light reading and brought up my spirits at a time they were down...I am not obsessed and the movies haven't been the best...I still enjoy them :) I'm easy to please.

    I have never seen Team Charlie stuff...that's funny.

  5. Saw Eclipse and loved it! I was surprised at all they were able to work in with Jasper and Rosalie's back stories. Charlie is such a great character. Wear that shirt with pride!

  6. Young Wife~ saw the movie today...didn't have time to make the T-Shirt but I will! I did like the back stories...can't wait for the next one!

  7. "Renee~ Madmartigan...from Willow?"

    My first love. Yes, ma'am! There's never been another to take his place. *sigh*

    I haven't seen shirts or anything saying "Team Charlie" (although I haven't seen them saying anything else, either, even though I know they exist), but I've read a couple other blogs talking about "Team Charlie."

    I get the brain candy aspect of the books. I've picked up a romance novel or two at the library when I wanted something silly and easy to read. I imagine it's somewhat the same thing with Twilight. Someday, I'll probably read the books. I hated the first two movies, though.

  8. Renee, I may have not liked the movies if I hadn't read the books. But I thought they were pretty good. I am easy to please!

  9. Nope, didn't see the movie. I read the books. I enjoyed them for what they are. The Twilight movies don't really interest me.


Let me know you were here!
