Last week, I received hate mail from a lady called Margaret who wrote that “I feel very sorry for you that you are not educated enough to appreciate certain things in life. If you could appreciate brilliant literature and the beautiful world Stephenie Meyer has created that has touched us all with the eternal love story between Bella and Edward it would be different for you. Life is more than gossip. Life is love. How silly of us “Twi-hards” to expect a gossip blogger to read. I wish you well even though you don’t wish us well.”

Twi-hards believe Stephenie Meyer is like A S Byatt?

You’re welcome.

Those of us who are not so enlightened, who cannot appreciate great writing then probably prefer Charlaine Harris and Sookie Stackhouse. Alan Ball, of course, is doing a marvelous job adapting it for HBO. Have you watched True Blood?

I don’t write about True Blood much because I feel about it the way I feel about Caleb Followill from Kings of Leon. Some things you want to keep to yourself. Such is True Blood.

But Anna Paquin and Steven Moyer – real life couple – are so rarely photographed together, this post was a must. Here they are last night at Paley Fest promoting the show…

Please don’t rag on her gap. I love her gap.
