What the Freak?! Breaking Dawn Spoiler alert! Don't read this unless you've read the book...or you don't care.

Bella's a little skank...at least she's married to the man she's skanking on.

Edward's freaked cuz he's fathered a baby that's killing his wife?!

Edward fathered a killer baby!!

Jacob takes on his role as the Alpha male. Gosh, didn't see that one coming.

Bella named her baby Renesmee?!

Jacob imprinted on Renesmee?! OK, I REALLY didn't see that one coming.

Bella FINALLY got bitten! Thank goodness.

Renesmee gets nicknamed Nessie. Thank goodness.

Nessie isn't a killer baby after all!

And they all lived happily ever after...

So, my question is, do they keep up the charade in Forks? How long can they stay without being discovered? Do they wait until Nessie is "fully grown" before moving on? And do they start in high school again? And do Bella and Edward do high school with their daughter? When they have to move, does Jacob go with them? If he does, what about his calling to watch over La Push--being the alpha male and all? And if he stays in La Push, what about Renesmee? And when she grows up, how does that love switch from being guardian/caretaker love to love-of-my-life love? And when it does change to that romantic love, how do Bella and Edward deal? And do Jacob and Nessie have babies? What ARE they, if they do? Half Indian-Shapeshifter, a quarter human, a quarter vampire. So, then what kind of characteristics do they take on? They'd be MOSTLY human, so do they eat human food only, or does the vampire thirst dominate? And because they'll most likely be raised around their vampire family, and this shapeshifting thing is active when vampires are present, do they all become shapeshifters?

These are only a few of my questions. I also wanna know why Marcus is always so bored. And what happens with Garrett and Kate? And does Jasper ever fully accept his new way of life? Does Rosalie ever fully accept Bella? Does Nessie call her parents by their first names, like Bella and Edward call/refer to their parents by their first names, or does she call/refer to them by Mom and Dad? And what about Carlisle and Esme? Are they grandpa and grandma? And the rest, are they aunts and uncles?

See, my curiosity is out of control. I need these things answered. I like that at the end of Harry Potter, JK Rowling told us what happened to and with the characters we were most curious about, like that Ginny was a pro Quidditch player for a while before having babies, and Ron works with George in the joke shop, etc. These are the kinds of things I want answered from Stephenie Meyer.

I'm a steamroller for you, babe...

Oh My Goodness. James Taylor and the Band of Legends... Amazing!!
What an incredible concert! I've heard horror stories about the USANA, but I thought it was really, very fun! Of course, it could be that I was listening to James Taylor...wow.

He played covers from his new album of covers. Which, as he said, just is a different way of saying they're gonna play other people's songs. It was SO good!

Wichita Lineman
Why Baby Why
Some Days You Gotta Dance
Hound Dog
Oh, What a Beautiful Mornin' (yes, from the musical Oklahoma!)

Plus his classics:
Sweet Baby James
Shower the People
How Sweet it is
Steamroller Blues
Fire and Rain
Shed a Little Light
Up on the Roof
You're Smiling Face
Walking Man
Country Roads
Carolina on the Mind

And of course a ton of others. It was seriously the best show I've been to. SO much fun, GREAT music, and just a happy, carefree atmosphere. I loved it! I'd really love to see him again.
