I've found a lovely new meaning for this phrase.
It's taking over my life and turning me into the brooding-love-sick-boy-crazy teenager I once was.
I used to consider this phrase as simply my natural response to the errant motorist who decided to give me the bird (for no reason at all b/c bad driving is my pet peeve, which naturally means I'm never at fault), or the disgruntled Walmart employee who refuses to allow me to return something that is so obviously from their craptastic store.
These situations provoked me to yell (while in my car with the windows tightly rolled up), or at least think (and possibly mutter as I exited to the parking lot) my favorite phrase: Bite me.
Now, bite me provokes something else entirely.
It causes me to summon images such as this:
Because I am obsessed with the life (or non life, or whatever it is) of Stephenie Meyer's vampires (they are of the fictional sort, please do not leave comments on this post if you are, or think you may be a real life vampire; I'm so not down with that), their werewolf enemies, and their human sidekick.
I tried to avoid it. I made jokes about it. I ridiculed, I teased.
But, alas, I too have fallen victim to the vampire/werewolf/human love triangle elaborated upon in Twilight, and I don't want to be saved.
As a matter of fact, I got a commemorative poster of the cast when I purchased the book. I'm considering posting it alongside my bed (so high school, right), so I can go to sleep and wake up to Edward's intense stare. Think Hubby will go along with that? Yeah, me neither.
There's a possibility that he is jealous of the time I've been spending with this young (hot-alluring-so-easy-to-fall-in-love-with-never-mind-damnation) vampire.
Can not wait until November when I can stand in line (on line?) with all the tweens and teens to be the first to glimpse Edward Cullen (and Bella, but not as much) in the second installment of the film, New Moon.
And, if you are one of those rare people who read but didn't enjoy the series (I mean, the SAGA), then you can bite me, and I mean that in the traditional sense of the term:).
