A rose by any other name ...

would smell just as bad.

I don't really like the smell of roses.

I don't really like the smell of the Twilight series, either. But this post is not about the reasons I don't like Twilight.

It's about how today I was clearing out my e-mail inbox in an effort to clear my head while studying for finals. I found several conversations with the label "Edward, me." Who is Edward? I wondered. And then I realized they were correspondance with my former professor Ted Pease who wrote me a few letters of recommendation a few months ago. That makes sense, I thought. No one actually goes by Edward, right? Which led me to thinking ...

Wouldn't it be awesome if Bella called her vampire boyfriend Ted??

and

Why aren't teenage girls chanting the name Ted or Eddie?

Personally, I think it would be a huge improvement over the original version.

I, those of us who openly mock the books, call him Eddie-kins, a la Dudley from Harry Potter. Which is the greatly superior book series!

I'm so glad to know that I'm not the only one who didn't like the books! I'm going to call him Ted from now on!
I also posted on my dislike of Twilight today, not by pointing out everything I hated, but by posting a youtube video I thoroughly enjoyed.

She calls her husband Tedward. Yeah.
