Older women and Twilight

So at work today I learned that one of my coworkers, a 42 year old woman, took a vacation day. Upon further investigation (waiting 5 seconds while her neighbor told me where she was) I learned that she was out of work so she could go watch the new Twilight movie at the Epicenter in Charlotte.

My question is... is this weird? I really found it to be almost disturbing.

I know a girl in her 30s who used to post on here regularly who did the same thing.

And she wasn't taking her kids. She has 3 boys. And the woman I asked said she went with one of her friends who is also an older woman.

I think it's a bit silly myself, but people like what they like.

That same lady might think it weird when we took off from work to go see grown men practicing together, as I'm sure will be the case when training camp rolls around.

One of my wife's friends is in a "group"... something like "Twilight Moms" or some such... they went to the midnight showing last night... most of these women also do not have kids to take to see it... they're all in their early 30's with really young kids.

most of the women on my facebook page have albums of going to see it last night. They took pics outside wearing their Twilight shirts buying tix, pics of them getting their stub, pics of them finding a seat while gawking at all the other soccer moms wearing their Twilight shirts and stuff. It's insane.

I guess women are more into romance than men, even as they get older. I admittedly know very little about Twilight, but it seems to be a "teen love fest". I just figured older people grew out of that. But I know some older people who like Harry Potter. I guess it's the same.
