Team Jacob. Totally.

My friend Eileen Brennan is blogging today on the Liquid Silver blog about the impending release of the Twilight DVD. She doesn't really get the obsession with Edward.

As I mentioned in the comments, I don't really either. I was always firmly on Team Jacob, a fact which all of my Twilight-reading friends think is very, very weird. I think it has to do with being the mother of two girls. As I told Eileen in the comments section of her blog, I would want my girls to choose the NICE guy who is always there for them--not the suicide-threatening drama queen who freely admits he is constantly tempted KILL THEM IN THEIR SLEEP. This is not a healthy relationship, people.

The movie did make me appreciate it more. I know a lot of people will be headed to Borders at midnight to get the DVD, but as my brother Troy, Font of All Pop Culture Knowledge, informed me, Target's DVD is a better deal. You get more extras and an exclusive digital version for your iPod.

I like Edward. I was just as angsty as Kristen. And would have loved a fellow brooder.

Jacob - well, he needs to look a little more grown up for me to even swoon over him. Maybe all the muscle building stuff will help. But I have other actors in mind who would have been fantastic for that role. Oh well.

I pre-ordered my copy. Not sure what comes with it. I'm looking forward to this series. Brings my youth back to me.

I don't get the Twilight obsession, either, but I'm glad to see another Team Jacob friend. My thoughts are similar -- Jacob is just a nicer guy and nowhere near as freakishly obsessed/overprotective as Edward.

I don't lust after the actor who is playing Jacob at all--I agree that he looks like a baby! But while I was reading the books? Jacob all the way!

High five, Mariann! I am shocked to discover two Team Jacob people in one day!
