Like so many others before me...

I have decided to do the 9 best things of 2009. This post WILL come before the first of the year. Otherwise it would just be pointless, right? Coming soon, I will tell you the 9 most awesome things of 2009. This post serves no purpose other than to pressure me to actually write that post.

Peace out!

More thoughts on New Moon

As much as I love New Moon (and according to previous blog post, I soooo loved it) something about it has been bothering me. I can't understand why I'm not AS fanatical about this movie as I was about Twilight. Something about my feelings toward this movie are a bit off... I've been racking my brain trying to understand why. I've seen the movie 3 times now and each time I come out wondering what is missing. And by george...I think I've figured it out. I was reading a review in the paper the other day and I came across this quote: "This teen soap is lighter and goofier than the first movie." The paper also gave the movie a C, which I totes disagree with, but I think that quote hit the nail on the head - this movie was lighter and goofier than Twilight. And that's the problem. New Moon was such a heavier book than Twilight, but the movie didn't reflect that. There were too many lol moments for my taste. I mean, yes, I love Mike Newton's humor and Eric crying at R&J, but the hard parts of the movie weren't hard enough for me. Maybe if these moments were as tough to see as they were to read, there may have been a bit more balance in the movie. I dunno. Just my two cents...

It would be nice...

To be able to feel whatever the fuck I wanna feel without having someone throw how much worse their life is than mine in my face. Yea. No wonder I feel like my emotions aren't legitimate. Every time I express them, someone makes me feel like I have no right to them.

An honorary It's Sexy Time!!

So, we all know that since RL intervened I had to let my beloved It's Sexy Time Wednesdays fall to the wayside. R.I.P. But what with all the major Rob hotness lately (everyday), I can't ignore him any longer. I can't tell you how guilty I feel that I don't honor his sexiness once a week like I used to. I mean, I privately honor his sex everyday. Wait...that sounds perverted. ;) Anywho, could it get anymore WIN than this?

Or this?


Rob, I miss you. See you tonight, babe.

Enjoy more sex over at ROBsessed.

Here it is my friends

I'm gonna keep it short and sweet. I would be willing to best most of you have already seen the movie and if you haven't...go now.

First, I gotta start by saying I'm tired of all the hatin' on Twilight. New Moon was phenomenal. Fantastic. Freakin' genius. But, so was Twilight. Now everybody is beating up Catherine Hardwicke and the first flick and it's pissing me off. The first movie started it all for me. If it weren't for Twilight, I never would have read the books and discovered the series. I saw Twilight in theatres 6 times. And loved it more every time. I think Catherine did an amazing job and I really don't understand why everyone hates it so much. We all watch it ad nauseum on DVD, don't we? Stop the hate.

With that being said, I don't think that New Moon was soooo much better than Twilight. I'm not even sure they are equally as good. Don't get me wrong, I LOVED New Moon, but I have a special place for Twilight in my heart.

Big thoughts on the movie:
-HATED the contacts the vamps wore. And the makeup. Their eyes looked irritated and they were too pasty in this film. They looked too obviously vampire. The subtlety of the makeup in Twilight was where it's at. The vamps are supposed to be otherworldly, but not overtly unnatural looking. Oh, and I hated Jasper's wig. And the weird look he gives Bella at the beginning of the movie when he uses his mind control action. Constipation much?
-The scene where Edward and Bella kiss (when she does the weird eyebrow raise thing? Loves you Kristen) is hotness times 10.
-The Volturi/reunion scene=full on WIN (I was bugged by the fight, tho. So didn't happen in the book - I tried not to do this too much, but I couldn't help but be bugged by some of the innaccuracies. Esp. when Edward calls and Jake answers and says "He's planning a funeral." He was totes supposed to think it was Carlisle.)
-Kristen Stewart is so amazing. I am in love.
-The scene where Edward walks toward the screen in slow motion=drool.
-Taylor Lautner blew me OUT of the freakin' water. I was so impressed. I never really took him seriously until now. How stupid I was.
-How funny is Mike Newton?
-I loved Edward quoting Romeo and Juliet. thud.
-And the whole "Can you forgive me?" stuff. Crikey.
-Dramatic ending: "Marry me, Bella." OMG.

Bottom line: Fuckin' great.

I think I have a hard time saying I liked New Moon better than Twilight cuz when I saw Twilight I knew nothing of the series and it really opened me up to a whole new world. And I am so grateful for that. I would give anything to be able to go back to that time. As my roommate put it (about the scene when Edward discovers Bella is "dead" and crushes his cell phone in distress): "What about the people who hadn't read New Moon? Can you imagine seeing that for the first time?" Can you imagine indeed? And what about the ending? If you haven't read the series at this point, you gotta be scrambling to see what happens in Eclipse, right?

New Moon count: Twice. Plans for the mom and me on Friday. I am so gonna break the Twi record.

"Kiss me."

I know what you're expecting...

But, I'm not gonna give it...yet. My New Moon post is coming. I don't have the energy needed to write that post yet. So until then, enjoy the sex:

Mass hyperventilation...

is going to happen tomorrow night at midnight. Why? Like you didn't know. How many ladies are seeing the New Moon premiere at midnight? I'd be willing to bet most everyone who reads this blog. (*waves at her most fave people in the world* shout out to spellbound and my homie Honolulu girl - the faithful commenter she is)

I have pretty much tried to avoid as many spoilers as possible. Early on, I watched a few New Moon trailers, but when my fave sites started posting EVERY detail of EVERY scene of the effing movie, I tuned out. I don't wanna see the damn thing before I SEE the damn thing. You know what I mean. Anywho, I cant wait. It feels like just yesterday that I was a normal girl who knew nothing of this "vampire book." And now I'm crazed. It felt like New Moon would never come. Alas, it has. I cherish my crazy.

I'm sooo excited to see Twilight before New Moon too. Some asshole idiot dude on the radio was talking about how stupid it was for us fans to pay "10 bucks to see a movie in theatres that you could easily watch in the comfort of your own home." Okay, douchebag A) I only paid 5 bucks to see Twilight in theatres :) B) Everyone knows watching a movie at the theatre is totes different than watching at home. It's an experience. And C) Are you fucking crazy calling Twilight fans stupid? We'll cut a bitch.

Can't wait til tomorrow. It will be number 6 in theatres for Twilight. I totes plan to break my record by seeing New Moon at LEAST twice as much. I already have plans to see it with my roommate, my mom, and my friend. And, I will see it many times by myself - which is how I prefer to see a movie anyway. No distractions. Yeah, I'm a freak. And I wouldn't have it any other way.

P.S. Are you reading Emancipation Proclamation? No? Go read it now. Thanks.

British Invasion...part II

Hello again, kids. And it continues....

November 10th. It's pouring down rain. I just find out my dog had to be put to sleep because he had a stroke. He was 15. I had had him since I was 8. Depressing times.

RIP Jacky.

So the day's not going so well.

We get ready and leave kinda early this time. The show started at 8. We left at 7. We park and it's still POURING. And FML, I've left my umbrella in my car. So we have one umbrella for two people. Sarah's in heels. I'm in chucks. Mismatched steps. Mismatched heights. Wind blowing. Not a good combo. We have to walk a block and my entire right side is SOAKED when we get there. I swear we were the only ones who got wet. And were above the age of 15. Everyone was there for this Justin Nozuka guy. Whoever that is. Apparently, he's the next big thing for the acne prone set. I guess they all got daddy to pay the 15 fucking dollars for the covered parking garage. We're skint as the Brits say, we paid three dollars and walked. Yeah, we suffered. Ish.

The act before Sam was sweet. I think they were called Elizabeth and the Catapults. She was like a mix between Norah Jones, Fiona Apple, and Sara Bareilles. She looked like Sara, had Fiona-ish lyrics, and sounded like Norah. Pretty cool.

Sam was next and he was amazing. I only recognized one song. I'm a bad fan, but it was great nonetheless. He said he would be at his table after his performance and encouraged us to come say hi. Didn't have to tell us twice. We left right after his performance and waited on him in the lobby. We saw his guitar players walk by first. And they were super hot too and had really tight pants. I'm liking this trend...

Then he appeared. And this drunk guy who was apparently in love with him started yelling at him "It's fucking SAM BRADLEY!!!" It was awkward. And then this other guy (back off dudes) went up to him and he was pretty drunk too. He was semi-heckling him during his performance, which brought out the bodyguard in me. I kinda wanted to punch this drunk asstard "John." He told Sam that he covered "Too Far Gone" well. COVERED. Get a grip. This guy knows nothing. a) Sam wrote the shit. b) How do you know about Rob's version? Your girlfriend? Sure... c) Why are you still standing here? He then tells Sam that the next time he comes to Atlanta that Sam should come see HIM. What the fuck? Yeah. Fucker.

Finally, it's our turn. Sarah goes up and gets a pic. And I ask him why he didn't sing SoHo Whores. I tell him it's my fave. He kinda laughs and mumbles something. Then I tell him we love him and that we walked in the rain to see him. (I had to milk it. Hey, we did walk from our car!) I tell him I don't want to get him wet and he says "It's okay." He already had me wet. *wink* I'm a slut. I thanked him for coming to Atlanta and I say "Come see Atlanta again." How retarded could I sound? And towards the end I gradually start walking away feeling all awkward and I think he was still trying to talk to me. But, I waved this retarded goodbye and kinda bolt. My boldness had worn off. I just feel like such an asshole going up to someone and saying "I really like your music." No shit. Why the fuck else would I be there? Anyway, I'm getting better at it. I'm such a groupie. Soon I will be fucking them. *rubs hand together* Srsly, tho. How do people become groupies? You gotta have balls man.

Anyways, Exhibit A:



















B:























And jackpot:


















Money. Life is good.

Oh, by the way, Rob knows this guy. Yeah. And he's probably touched him. No bigs.

British Invasion

So I know I've been away a while, but there is justification. I've been working. A LOT. And then there was that whole dark day that I won't talk about on this blog. (My Rob lovers know what I'm talkin' about. le sigh) And then there's this whole British invasion happening in my life. Yes, my friends the year is 1965....not really. But, it is kinda like the second coming (hehe) of the Brits. I got to go see #2 and #11 on my list. (Those are not completely random numbers. They were deliberately and meticulously picked out for these men.)

November 5th I went to see Mr. Bobby LONGGGG in concert. There's this whole story. And of course you get to hear it. Ok, so....we left the apartment a little later than I wanted to (I leave WAY early for stuff) and we got there and didn't have to pay for parking and we found a spot right in front of the club. Way to go being a procastinator Sarah! We get in, head to the bar and I start looking for a place to sit because I'm in heels and I didn't really wanna stand. But, there was no place, so I picked this railing to lean up against that was off to the side of the stage. We're standing there watching this guy Corey Crowder, who was good - just not my style, when Sarah looks at me and starts telling me something through clenched teeth. She has this sort of panicked look on her face and I couldn't understand her. I finally lean over and she whispers to me (BOBBY IS RIGHT BEHIND YOU). I froze. "NO WAY. No he's not." I said. I couldn't turn around. He was leaning up against the wall watching the other guy perfrom. She kept telling me he was there, but I was too afraid to look. Sarah wanted to take a picture with him, but I was paralyzed. Then these girls went up to him and asked for a picture and he vanished (cuz he's classy - I assume - and didn't want to take away from the other guy's performance). After he was gone, Sarah showed me where he was standing. I SWEAR, if I had taken just one step back, I woulda been all up in his muffin. I started freaking.

Anywho, he performed. He was awesome and cute and I knew all of the songs he sang this time. It turns out that where we were standing was kismet. Bobby's table of goodies was set up right in front of us and I was determined to ask this nice lady selling his stuff if she could get us the "in" to meet him. Meanwhile (while I was scheming) Bobby talked about liking America's fine dining restaurants (Waffle House) and our aquarium here in GA. He went last time and was going again the next day. Oh, and I gotta mention the pants. They were sooooo tight. Like, you could see the outline of his muffin tight. Sex. Yeah.

After the show, we stood around waiting to see what was gonna go down and I was working up the nerve to ask T-shirt lady the big question when I hear this guy ask, "Is Bobby gonna come out and mingle?" She says "I don't want to tell you yes and he doesn't and you get mad, but it's unusual for him not to come talk to his fans." She tells him to hang on and asks this other girl. (The whole convo between them was whispered, but I could hear it cuz I was RIGHT next to them. I had to tell Sarah all of this was happening.) The girl tells her that Bobby said no, he was afraid that it would cause a scene. So, I get uber disappointed, but I wasn't about to give up. It just made me determined to get that girl to let me meet him. Next thing I know, though, Sarah spots him in the lobby. And...

I freeze. Again.

But, I work up the balls when I see a little line forming. We were third in line and Sarah shakes his hand and takes a picture. I go over and shake his hand and he says...get this..."Hi. I'm Bobby Long." UNGH. I shake his hand and he puts his arm around me to take the pic. Melt. And I thank him for coming out and he says "Cheers." FUCKING CHEERS!!! I almost lost it then. But we cooly and calmly walk to the car. We get in and proceed to scream our effing lungs out. You woulda thought we were 14 and just met Nick Carter. It was crazy amazing.  And here's the evidence folks:


Sex.



Part two? Coming up....

Wednesday, November 4, 2009

So a year ago, I discovered something...

wonderful! I can't believe it has been a year since I read Twilight. I am going to do this whole long, boring post about how I found out about it, what it means to me, yada, yada, yada. I'm saving that for another day. I'm sure you all can't wait. I feel like I owe it to the universe to shout out a thanks for sending this big ball of awesome my way. But, that post can wait. For now, I'm going to give you another New Moon quote. Because I can. And it is but a tiny look at why Twilight means so much to me:

"I didn't want to fight anymore. And it wasn't the light-headedness, or the cold, or the failure of my arms as the muscles gave out in exhaustion, that made me conent to stay where I was. I was almost happy that it was over. this was an easier death than others I'd faced. Oddly peaceful.
   I thought briefly of the cliches, about how you were suppose to see your life flash before you eyes. I was so much luckier. Who wanted to see a rerun, anyway?
   I saw him, and I had no will to fight. It was so clear, so much more defined than any memory. My subconscious had stored Edward away in flawless detail, saving him for this final moment. I could see his perfect face as if he were really there; the exact shade of his icy skin, the shape of his lips, the line of his jaw, the gold glinting in his furious eyes. He was angry, naturally, that I was giving up. His teeth were clenched and his nostrils flared with rage.
  'No! Bella, no!'
   My eyes were flooded wit the freezing water, but his voice was clearer than ever. I ignored his words and concentrated on the sound of his voice. Why would I fight when I was so happy where I was? Even as my lungs burned for more air and my legs cramped in the icy cold, I was content. I'd forgotten what real happiness felt like.
   Happiness. It made the whole dying thing pretty bearable."

I cannot try and really explain or justify why this hits so close to home for me. It will always come out as trite or overly dramatic. But, a few years ago I could have plunged myself off of that cliff in La Push and it would have felt like a relief. Anything would have been better than the pain. But I lived. And so does Bella.

That is why I get so defensive when people call her weak. Because who hasn't been? What she makes of herself in the end is what makes her so strong. That she pulls herself through it. Her need and love for Edward, and his for her is NOT a weakness. To love and trust someone the way she does is a strength. To be able to trust your heart so fully with someone takes a LOT of courage. At least for me it does. I think that is ultimately why New Moon is my favorite book in the series. I relate to it so much. Stephenie writes the words as if she has experienced that kind of pain and loss herself, although she says that she never has. Girl can write it like she's lived it though.

And I'm thu. Expect another delightfully Twilosophical post when my one year annivesary of the Twi-love hits. (Not until late November...I don't have an EXACT date that I started the books. That would make me a freak. sheesh.)

Thanks for listening folks! Feel free to tell me why Twilight means so much to you. I'd love to hear it!

This is my little brother...



Yeah. I can't make this shit up.

I love him regardless.

The last 14 days of my life...and Rob's (of course)

I have missed my blog so much!! It's been too long. So Imma give you the run-down.

My thoughts on VD last week:
-It's sort of bittersweet that ugly girl is dead. Now we may never see Elena's little bro get it on. And who will Damon's little play thing be next? Perhaps Elena...How sweet would that be??
-Shut up with the whole crooked faced girl witch storyline. NO ONE cares.
-You know this show is good when my mom (who never really watches) calls me and yells "Who killed Vicki???"
-It "gives me the sads" when Elena's bro (is it Jeremy?) says "Why does everyone around me die?" And how awesome is Damon for erasing the memory? Stefan is such a play-by-the rules puss. I think it's pretty obvs this is gonna be Damon's way into Elena's heart. Watch out Stefan...sadly enough the bad boys usually win.
-Sad times: I can't watch this week. I am going somewhere. Happy times: That somewhere is Bobby Long. Again!!

Where am I in New Moon?
-No, I still haven't finished. I have a distraction, which I'll get to later.
-Bells just discovered Jake is a werewolf and she is hanging in La Push to avoid Victoria.
-My current distraction? Emancipation Proclamation I'm not sure if it's okay to like this story...It is so bizarre. And fucked up. And when I told my roommate about it I realized how unbelievable and ridiculous it is. But, apparently I love ridic because I can't stop reading it. Mucho sexy times.
-I have made a rule for myself: After I finish the rest of the Twilight series, I am focusing on exclusively reading fanfic. I think if I read all of the infamous ones out there (ya know, the more well known, less shiteously written ones), I can purge this affliction from my system. (I really love it...shhhh)

My Halloween:
-Amazing. I was the Mad Hatter from Alice and Wonderland. And boy did I get d-runk. But I had a lot of fun! I never drink and it was nice to let loose and not be so friggin' conscious of me and what everyone else may or may not be thinking. Yeah, I'm one of those girls. I tend to think everyone is looking at me (narcissism) and judging me. I couldn't give a fuck when I'm drunk, which is nice. I was everyone's friend Saturday night. I feel an alcoholic brewing... kidding.
-My roommate was Mrs. Lovett from Sweeney Todd. Brills.
-There were so many other female Mad Hatters, it was ridics. I took a pic with an Alice and a Queen of Hearts. That was pretty cool. Apparently, I completed the set.
-There was ONE kick ass Tim Burton-authentic Mad Hatter there. He had the Johnny Depp fruity eyebrows and huge hat and he was just plain awesome.

What do I think of these?:










There is a barfy sensation mixed with a little bit of happy. They are THE world's cutest couple. Whether they are or not. And it's getting hard for even me to deny it. And I swore I would never comment on the Robsten/Nonsten-ness. You'll never hear it again. I just think they look really happy. And they both deserve to be...so how can we hate on 'em? P.S. I WANT that Alexander McQueen dress. Now.


Love!

Thanks ROBsessed. You are my dealer.

Stefan who?

So last week's episode of The Vampire Diaries was complete WIN! Best episode yet. And I am totally over Stefan. Yeah, he has fan-fucking-tastic abs, but even with them, he is still no where near as sexy as Damon. He is so fucking evil. And boy would I like to fuck evil...

Anyone else love it when he snapped ugly girl's neck?? But how sad to find out she will live. The only good thing about this is that maybe there will be some hot vamp sex with Elena's brother. That sounds gross...maybe I should learn his name.

And Katherine was a super whore. I don't get why Damon and Stefan are still obsessed with her. Hello...she totally played you both and then pitted you against each other. Oh and that little thing she did to both of you...damned you to an eternity in Mystic Falls with boring cliche teenagers. Cuz I know if I were immortal I would be hanging out in a lame ass town in Virginia with the local town folk. Fuck.

What I loved:
1. Snap! Nuff said.
2. The minimal role crooked face played in this episode.
3. Newscaster guy dies. Bastard.
4. Damon and ugly girl dancing around his house 80s music video style.
5. Stefan's bad hair in the Civil War flashback. (To be honest, this might have pushed me over the edge to Team Damon-are people gonna start saying that? I hope not. I just annoyed myself with it.)

What I hated:
1. The fucking compass. Really?
2. That Damon and Stefan are still totally puppy-dog over Katherine. And why the fuck do they think that hanging with Elena will ease the pain? For Damon, getting Elena is totes payback. I get it. But, why does Stefan give a fuck? It's not like Elena IS Katherine. She is just alarmingly similar in appearance...and in her annoying personality traits.
3. How Elena is all pissed off at Stefan cuz of what Damon did. He can't control that shiz. Damon will not be tamed.
4. The fact that Damon hasn't really gotten to properly show off HIS abs. Let's see 'em.
5. The fact that I have to wait 'til Thursday for a new epi. This show has become my crack.

For my atheist friends...

















Boo-yah!

Still not a believer? What about this?














Thank you Robsessed!!

I'm a big baby...

So, I started crying at work the other day. Srsly crying. I never cry. And guess what it was that made me break down like a little baby? New Moon. I am such a puss. Thankfully my coworker was engaged in doing actual work and therefore didn't really notice the tears sliding down my face. I am lame. I knew Edward was gonna leave, but that didn't stop me from being super sad. I lit'rally (hehe) felt dread for what was to come and when Bella curled up onto the forest floor, I wanted to too.

Reason number 7,849,344 why I love Stephenie Meyer:
"October. November. December. January." Could should have captured the complete sense of desperation and sadness that Bella felt any better than in those four words? I think not, my friends.

"Time passes. Even when it seems impossible. Even when each tick of the second hand aches like the pulse of blood behind a bruise. It passes unevenly, in strange lurches and dragging lulls, but pass it does. Even for me." Brills.

*waves at new follower Needs Intervention* Don't we all??

Fanfiction and the epicness that is Twilight

So it's no secret that I love me some Twilight fanfiction. Mostly, I stick to the all human variety. I have yet to read a Twilight fic where any of the characters are actually vampires. I have only ever read one fic that stars Rob and I really didn't like it. It felt a little skeevy to be reading these explicit sex scenes about an actual person. But let's face it - when we are reading are Twi fics, we are totally picturing Rob.

NEWAYS, I talk about fanfiction all the time. And I finally badgered my roomie into writing her own. She has never read or written any Twific, but she is a writer and has had forays into BSB fanfic. (Maybe I wasn't supposed to reveal that. Shhhh...) Don't judge, bitches, You know you read it back in the day.

Anyway, the whole point of this fanfic ramble is that I am so excited that she has finally written a fic and she has graciously asked me to be her beta. ME!!! It's really cool to be in on the ground floor of a fic and she is actually going to let me help her come up with a name. And best believe as soon as I can convince her of her awesomeness, she will be posting it on Twilighted and I will totes be pimping it here. So look out for it. Oh, and here are some of my fave fanfics. PLEASE list some of your faves in the comments. I will heart you forever. I am always on the look-out for fresh Twi porn.

The Blessing and The Curse
Wide Awake
Clipped Wings and Inked Armor
The Office
The Dominant
The Submissive

My fave fics are angsty. THE fanfic to read is Wide Awake. If you never read another fic, you must read this one. The Blessing and The Curse is def. my second fave. Anyone, if you can suggest any angsty fics, that would be great. I like my Edward fucked up...

Secondly, I finished reading Twilight...again. And each and every time I finish it, this wave of EPIC rolls over me. You can almost forget how amazing the book is until you read passages like this:

"You're wrong, you know," he said quietly.
"What?" I gasped.
"I can feel what you're feeling now - and you are worth it."

I mean, how beautiful is that? Who hasn't felt unworthy at some point in their life? And it really breaks my heart to read that every time.

I still manage to tear up at Bella's letter everytime:
"I love you. I am so sorry. He has my mom and I have to try. I know it may not work. I am so very, very sorry. Don't be angry with Alice and Jasper. If I get away from them it will be a miracle. Tell them thank you for me. Alice especially, please. And please, please don't come after him. That's what he wants. I think. I can't bear it if anyone has to be hurt because of me, especially you. Please, this is the only thing I can ask you now. For me. I love you. Forgive me."

Bella's numbness and acceptance of her fate is chilling:
"Alice and Jasper spent a long time looking at the departing flights board. I could hear them discussing the pros and cons of New York, Atlanta, Chicago. Places I'd never seen. And would never see."

Stephenie so easily paints a vivid and sad picture:
"I couldn't help imagining Edward, where he would stand at the edge of the road when he found the end of my trail. I couldn't cry yet, I told myself. I still had a long way to go."

I forget how really sad and beautiful the story is until I read it again. It is so easy for all of us (myself included) to poke fun at our favorite subject. There is so much cheese surrounding the movies and the stars, but when I go back to the basics and just read the words, I remember why I fell in love with the story. I just felt like I should take the time to be serious for a minute and write about my true appreciation for the stories. With that being said...I am going to read New Moon. I only have 37 days to finish it before I get to see it in action!

P.S. Don't think I didn't notice you new follower...cuz I did. Thanks Peggy W!! I love my followers. I send you a very sexually frustrated Edward. Stephenie Meyer just constantly cock blocks him. Think you can help him?

Why does the Death Cab for Cutie video make me puke-y?

I just watched the Meet Me At the Equinox video and I feel a little nauseous. This is a good thing. That is my excited feeling. When I feel like I might hurl a teensy bit, it means I am exctited for something. Weird, I know. I cannot believe how close New Moon is. I had better take a barf bag with me November 21.

Guess what tonight is bitches. That's right! The Vampire Diaries! The show I love to hate. Oh, and don't think I missed last week's episode. I totally love the Twilight reference. I am just too lame to post lately. Actually, I never have time for my blog anymore and that pisses me off, my friends. I miss you all!

Whenever I want you, all I have to do is...dream, dream, dream

It happened again. I dreamt of THE MAN. But it was slightly disappointing...

So, Sarah and I are in some kind of classroom and our teacher is one of my bosses from IHOP. (bizarre-o) We are sitting at our desks cutting stuff out of construction paper and I look out into the hallway and I see Mr. Pattinson walking by talking to some girl, so Sarah and I go out into the hallway and she just stares at him, but I decide to go up to him. He is finishing his conversation with the girl and I feel my heart racing. I tell him I am such a big fan and I ask him for a hug. He says he doesn't touch people's upper bodies because they are germy (like Rob would ever care about germs), so he gives me this weird Vulcan-like handshake. Oh and get this---his nails are painted black! I then go back to the class slightly deflated, but I tell everyone that I don't care if I get fired (why am I getting fired in a classroom), at least I got to meet Rob effing Pattinson.

So weird. Rob is never as attractive in my dreams as he is in reality. Sad. But at least I dream of him. le sigh.

P.S. While I was bored at work today, I played FLAMES with mine and Rob's names. (Who remembers that game?) True story.

The Vampire Diaries Ep. 3

I know I said I was gonna blog about episode 2, but I didn't really like episode two. So, that's all I have to say about that. Instead, you get to hear all about epi 3. Oh goody!

Mmmkay. So a couple of things about Thursday night's episode that annoyed me:

1. Homegirl's massive overbite (or is it underbite? I always confuse the two. bite haha). Oh and how her face is kinda crooked. (I guess this is true in every episode). I better stop or she will put a hex on me. Puh-lease!! That storyline is so gay.















2. Stefan is a football player? Seriously. And Elena is a cheerleader? How lame.














3. That other friend? The dumbass blonde one who is fucking Damon? What a massive bitch! I want to choke her with that scarf. Die.













4. How quickly Elena and Stefan got into a relationship. I mean, we don't exactly know how much time has passed between episodes, but come on! We are supposed to believe they are already falling in love? Naw, man.

I don't understand why we are supposed to care about these characters. The main character is this gorgeous cheerleader type who has this amazingly sexy-football-player-vampire in love with her. Oh poor Elena. I am so sad for you. Not.

Can you tell cheerleaders and football players were mean to me in high school?

And it's not just that. The characters have zero depth. Maybe it is too early in the show to judge that yet. The only character that I remotely care about is Elena's little brother. His story is interesting to me. I dig the whole unrequited love thing he has going for that ugly girl - who by the way is an idiot for choosing that douche bag ugly guy over him.

I am interested to get to know the whole back-story behind the Katherine-Damon-Stefan love triangle. I also really like Damon's character. He is deliciously evil. But, you get the feeling that somewhere underneath there is some good left. And I want to see him seduce Elena. Cuz I am a sick-o like that.

You might be wondering with all the negatives I listed, why I am still watching the show. I just can't stop, that's why. It is addictive. I really like how Damon toys with the humans. That's not something you usually see happen in vampire stuff. There always seems to be major consequences for the vamps. I mean, of course vampire kill humans, but what Damon is doing is almost worse. He is taking away their freedom and really fucking with them. It's kinda cool.

Later homies!

I heart my followers!

Thanks My Life Since Twilight!!! I'm up to 14. Woo-hooooo!! Posts coming soon...I promise. I have a juicy Rob dream to share. Ooh. And my "critique" of episode 2 of The Vampire Diaries.

My thoughts on The Vampire Diaries

I don't think I was the only Twi fan that watched this show Thursday night. I am obsessed with all things vampire...as we all know. And I was both vaguely annoyed and really excited to see how much this show/book series had in common with Twilight. I don't know which series was published first...hold on, let me "wiki that shit" (WA anyone?)...okay so The Awakening (the first book in the series) was published in 1991 WAY before Steph's books. So, the comparisons have to be made.

In the books, Elena is a blonde, popular girl who all the guys want and all the girls wanna be. That annoys me to begin with. Now, let me say, I am only on chapter 2 of The Awakening so I don't know a whole lot about this shiz yet, but who the hell wants to read about a beautiful, popular girl who has a beautiful, otherworldly guy lusting after them? How is that fair? That's what happens in real life. If I wanted to see that shit, I could look out my effing window. I wanna read about the socially awkward, unconventionally attractive, unpopular girl who has a total fucking hottie vampire wanting her blood/body. (Which is reason number 1 why Twilight is way superior to The Vampire Diaries in my eyes.)

So when the books were translated into a show, I was more than a little miffed to find that the heroine is now a brunette. And come on, what's with Stefan and the Ray Bans? Really? Do you think you are fooling us, CW? Oh!!! OHHHH!! And the part when Vicki is the victim of an ANIMAL ATTACK?!?! I laughed out fucking loud on that one! HAHAHA!

And as I'm reading The Awakening, I come across this fucking line: "The sleek black 911 Turbo purred through the parking lot..." And I made that part yellow on purpose. I MEAN COME ON!!!

And rationally, I know that if anyone has ripped anyone off here, it's Stephenie Meyer since L.J. Smith's book was published well over a decade  before Steph's. But, I just cannot be mad at Mrs. Meyer. I will always take her side. No matter how many times she is accused of plagiarism...which has been a lot lately.

I honestly don't believe that Stephanie plagiarized anything. But, it is really unusual how a lot of these vampire stories have overlapping shiz. The Southern Vampire Mysteries by Charlaine Harris (aka the books that True Blood is based off of) has alot in common with both of these series' as well. I think the order of these three authors' series are as follows: L.J. Smith's The Vampire Diaries, Charlaine Harris' The Southern Vampire Mysteries, and of course Stephanie Meyer's Twilight saga.

Anywho, I guess there is no one to blame here, considering I really liked the show. But, if I was L.J. Smith I would probably be a little pissed that Steph's work blew up in the past year...before mine had a chance to hit it big. And to the uninformed it would look like L.J. is the copycat. There are plenty of squeeing fangirls to share, I guess since this whole vampire thing is exploding right now. Which is a whole other topic to explore. (I have been a vamp fan since the wee days of Buffy, BTW. *puffs up chest*)

My thoughts on the show? Yeah, that's why we're here, isn't it? Sorry, I get up on a soapbox and it can be hard to knock me off. Yeah. I wasn't wowed. But I wasn't really disappointed, either. I think a good foundation was laid out for a potentially awesome show rife with sexy times and thrilling cliff hangers. I am going to like the whole brother vs. brother for Elena thing. Really sexy. Not sure how I feel about Elena's bff Bonnie. She's a little retarded acting if you ask me. And there was some cheesy, stereotypical teenage behavior shit going on that annoyed me. The cast is most def. good looking, to say the least. Elena is gorg, of course. And Stefan is a major effin hottie. Damon is ehhh. His whole evil thing is kinda hot. But, you know who I think is hot and is not going to get enough credit for it? Elena's little brother. Maybe I like him cuz I tend to have a thing for damaged, dark haired boys who wear black nail polish. For so long, I denied my love of the emo boys. I used to really loathe them. Then one day I woke up and realized that nothing is more attractive than an unwashed, black nail polish wearing, girl jean clad emo boy. Srsly.
The end.
Update: Holy shit! So, I was looking up the guy who plays Stefan cuz I knew he was a familiar face. And he totes played Tommy Callahan on Everwood. You know, the drug-dealer boyfriend Amy gets sidetracked by? You have no idea what I'm talking about, do you? It's okay. I'm a WB nerd.

My reading list

1. The Hunger Games series by Suzanne Collins












2. The Vampire Diaries series by L.J. Smith












3. Enormous amounts of Twi fanfic
      -Including finishing Clipped Wings and Inked Armor and The Blessing and the Curse





4. Bel Ami by Guy de Maupassant 

YouTube is a bitch

So, I promised you all video from the Bobby Long concert. But, I am afraid I can't deliver beacuse YouTube hates me. For some unknown, lamespice (thanks busy bee lauren!) reason my videos won't upload. I'm going to try again tomorrow. Cross your fingers that it works.

Oh, and Sarah - don't fear if they won't upload, you'll get to see them.

Things I am excited about...

1. Manson - a documentary coming on the History channel Monday. People may think it is weird, but I have always been fascinated by this story. How this one little man could convince seemingly normal people to commit such heinous murders. Back when I was reading Helter Skelter, I used to sneak around with the book. When I was in public, I would always try and hide the cover when I was reading it. I felt like people would think I was crazy for reading a book like that, but if you get the chance, you should read it. It is completely fascinating the way Manson's mind worked.

2. The Vampire Diaries - Although I was previously vehemently against this whole series, I have come around. I still think it is kind of a rip off of Twilight (even though I believe the first book in this series was actually published before Twilight. What can I say? My allegiance to Twilight and Steph is strong!), but I am interested to see how the show plays out. And if I like the show, I may very well have a new series of books to start.

3. Actually finishing my reading list. I have so much I want to read right now. I am currently reading the fanfic Clipped Wings and Inked Armor, which I am loving BTW. I am still waiting on AG to update Wide Awake and I am dying for an update on The Blessing and the Curse (which is my second fave fanfic ever!! WA being number one of course). In actual book land, I am reading Twilight and Midnight Sun simultaneously. I want to finish the Sookie Stackhouse series and read through the Jane Austen's I recently bought. I have all these books and I always end up reading fanfic instead. Dammit!

4. Twicon in March!!!!!!!!!! Nuff said on that.

Peace out my homies!

Some things never change...

Lots of new things in my life. I recently started a new job. And I am training on the horrendous night shift - 11 PM to 7 AM and yes I feel like a zombie. Thus, is the reasoning for my no It's Sexy Time! this week. Forgive me. I'm not sure how long I will be training on this shift, so these posts may disappear for a bit. I am also in the process of moving into my brand, spanking new apartment! So needless to say, my life is a little busy right now. But, I don't come here to blog about this.

I come to talk of Twilight.

So, I have been carrying my Twilight tote bag to work with me every night. So lame. I know. And totes against my rules. I don't want to be a 2nd hand embarassment (thanks LTT/LTR!). But, I just said "fuck it" and put in it the massive amounts of shiz I have to take with me. And one of the girls I work with was like "Is that Elvis on your bag?" I almost spit out my Coke Zero. I guess it was the (in my best Rob voice) bouffant.

The Bobby Post

Here it is. A bit late, but better than never, right?

After a lovely dinner at the Cheesecake Factory, Sarah and I made our way to East Andrews. We got there a little early and immediately discovered that we were overdressed. Yeah. We looked cute anyway. So we were standing in line scoping out the other concert-goers, looking for other Twi nerds. There were these two cute Asian girls who were obvs there because of Bobby's Twilight connection. They were cute. While standing in line, we decided that we were not allowed to utter the "forbidden words." You know "Twilight", "Rob", "Sam", "Marcus", "Stephenie Meyer", "Kristen", "Ashley", "Kellan"....etc. We couldn't have anyone thinking we were Twi nerds now could we?

Anywho, we got inside and headed straight for the stage. Well, then we decided to get a drink. Sarah ordered me this drink with Firefly sweet tea, lemon sour, Sprite...I dunno. I'm not much of a drinker, so I leave the hooch up to her. (Not that she's a lush. ;) ) Anyway, while standing at the bar, I decided to go back to the stage cuz I wanted to hold us a spot. While Sarah was still getting the drinks, I saw this cute dude walk on the stage all hunched over with a guitar. Yeah. It was Bobby and I totes didn't realize it until he was off stage. He looks different in person. I swear, I'm not retarded. No one reacted at all when he walked across the stage, so I didn't realize it was anyone important. Oh, but it was.

While we were waiting for the show to start, this girl next to us tried to make conversation. She asked us how we knew about Bobby. Since we couldn't use the "forbidden words" and because we didn't want to geek ourselves out, Sarah told her that we found out about his music on his myspace. Well that wasn't enough for the girl. She kept pushing. "How'd you find his myspace?," she asks. Sarah totally blanked for like 10 seconds. Srsly crickets. And I totally bailed. I sort of turned the other way and was like "hmmm hmmm hmmm." Sarah had a good recovery, though. She said she found his myspace by surfing on YouTube and finding his videos. I don't think she bought it. Oh well. She was obvs there for his Twi connection too. She was trying to ferret us out. Or just being a total bitch by trying to call us out. Either way, we weren't interested in talking to her. We were there for THE MAN.

Yeah. So Tim Brantley performed first. And let me tell you. I didn't really care to hear him sing at all. I enjoy live music and I was enjoying him, but I was just thinking "Bring on the Brit." Well after Tim's first song, I wasn't really thinking that anymore. I'll save the gushing I have for this man and the new love I have discovered since I already dedicated some time to him a few posts ago. But, do check out his myspace and buy his CD Goldtop Heights on iTunes or at Best Buy. (I'm not his pimp.) Turns out Tim was kinda why a lot of people were there. Believe it or not people started getting rowdy. Pushing up on us and yelling his name out repeatedly. There was this one lady, who was in her fifties, who I swear had a completely fried, peroxide blonde mullet down to her waist. She had on a dress who I, as a girl in her twenties, would never wear because of its sheer sluttiness. It was a periwinkle halter dress that totally had the girls COMPLETELY on display. And I have never seen a worse eyeliner job in my life. Anyway, she kept screaming Tim's name while he was trying to sing. She was trying to get his attention to take his picture. It was so annoying. She was obvs pretty drunk and she kept swinging her ugly mullet all over Sarah. I thought Sarah was gonna lose it. It was hilarious because she was headbanging and giving devil horns like she was at a fucking Bullet For My Valentine show. Come on, srsly lady? Yeah and at one point Tim was joking with her and was totes like, "That lady just showed me her breasts." And naturally I looked at her and she reacted with a  shocked "not me" face and she [edit: On my first posting, I put that "he proceeded to take her breasts out." OMG. Would that have been a totally different story] proceeded to take her breasts out, cup them in her hands, and jiggle this about. Luckily, I didn't see any nip, but I definitely saw some side boob. I am totally traumatized. And what about Sarah, who was standing next to this nip showing slut of an old lady? She didn't see any of it. Lucky bitch.

Tim was so amazing. He is like the little kid in your second grade class who always got in trouble because he wouldn't keep still in his seat. The whole time he performed he was wiggling about. It was like he couldn't contain his passion for the music he was playing. It was so adorable and inspiring. And he does this thing where he sticks his tongue out of the corner of his mouth in concentration. Luvs it. Oh, and during his first song, I totes made eye contact and it was weird cuz we held the stare for like 5 extremely awkward seconds and he so gave me the little "what's up" head bob. I fell in love.
                                                                                        
Okay, so on to Bobby. He came out with his Heinken (of course) and I am ashamed to say I only recognized three of the songs he played. But that's ok. That's why I bought his CD at the show - to school myself on the Bobby. He kept his eyes closed pretty much the entire time he performed. And his hair was constantly in his face. And I wanted to lick him brush his hair out of his eyes. He completely radiated passion during his songs. He really feels what he sings, which is amazing. Up until I saw him that night, Penance Fire Blues was my fave song of his. But, Dead and Done is so amazing live and is a new contender for my fave. I officially now love the harmonica. In between songs, he would swig his Heineken and he told this adorable story about visiting our aquarium. He is coming back in November and we are so going to see him again. We had the most amazing time and I have decided that our weekly social outing has to be to a place where there is live music. I am a total whore for some acoustic guitar.

P.S. Tim's band included a fucking CELLIST. How badass is that?
P.P.S. I do not love Tim more than Bobby. But it's pretty close.
P.P.P.S. You know who I love more than Tim and Bobby? Take a wild guess. I'll even give you a clue: He's British, lanky, and also plays guitar. Hmmmm.....



More of the sex:





< Blurry Heiney











< Thank God for British boys.













< Oh harmonica!











Yes, there is video. Coming soon.... I am such a tease.

It's sexy time!

"It's that time again!" 10 points if you can tell me what Rob movie that is from. 5 more points if you can tell me what the name of the character is who says it. And 100 points if you can tell me that actor's name. What can you redeem those points for, you ask? Fun times with Rob!

Anywho, here's Rob looking James Dean-ish. Thanks Robsessed!

Tim Brantley

Friday night I went to the Bobby Long concert. Yes, you know that already. And the post is coming....soon. I just wanted to give a quick mention of the other act that played that night - Tim Brantley. He's from Atlanta (my turf) and he is an amazing artist who I SWEAR is the next big things. His voice is so unique and his lyrics beautiful. Plus, he's easy on the eyes. I went and bought his CD today - Goldtop Heights. Definitely give his music a listen. I can't really compare him to anyone. I think he is pretty innovative. I felt like I was in on the ground floor of something big and exciting when I saw him play. He's like Atlanta's secret that will soon be exploding. Anyway, he lists his influences as Fleetwood Mac, Bruce Springsteen, Hall & Oates so if you are into them, then maybe you'll like him. I dunno. Give him a listen: www.myspace.com/timbrantley. The Race and Damage are the best! He's got some videos on YouTube, too. Gold is one of my faves of his, but unfortunately it's not on his CD. You can actually buy his CD at Best Buy and on iTunes. More about his performance in the Bobby post.

P.S. I feel like his pimp. If only....

Twilight + Midnight Sun

So, I am finally doing it - reading Twilight and Midnight Sun together and I gotta admit, I kinda feel like I'm reading fanfiction. I am so used to reading EPOV/BPOV in my fics that I find myself expecting lemons any second. But I am always disappointed.

Anyway, while I am reading these, I have decided to be uber-geeky. I am currently taking notes as I am reading on the differences between the book and the movie. I know that numerous other blogs have already made note of these differences, but I want to do it to. So there! That post will come as soon as I am done with the book. Which will be in approximately...3 years. No seriously, a few weeks probably. What can I say? I'm a slow reader. Back in November '08, I started Twilight and I didn't finish Breaking Dawn and Midnight Sun until February of this year. And it wasn't for lack of interest. Obvs I love the books. I just like to savor what I read. Dammit! Why am I justifying myself to you? I am going to go lose myself in MS now.

Later!

-The forbidden words

Girls I would totally go gay for...volume 1

I was having this weird convo. with Sarah today about which female member of the Twi cast we would get it on with (if we were of that persuasion and excluding Kristen -of course- cuz duh she would win) and it got me to thinking about my girl crushes. So since we've already established that I'm a "big fat lesbian" because of my Twi love, I thought I would go ahead and share who I would totally go gay for. My girl crush list tends to change pretty frequently, so this may only be the beginning of a beautiful series. :) Wanna see which female Twi cast member I lust after? Check it out below.
And these are in no particular order.
1. Kat Von D
I just think she is so feisty and she has such a good heart. She is curvy and I love that she is all tatted up. If I were gay, I think I would be WAY into Latino women. She is just so gorgeous and an amazingly talented artist.
2. Gwen Stefani
This should be a "NO DUH!" to anyone who has ever looked at this blog. She is and always will be my number 1 girl crush. Her platinum blonde hair, gorgeous legs, amazing song writing abilities, and unique singing voice makes me swoon. I love her style and her ability to just be one of the guys and also totally glam it up! I could go on and on and on and on about this one....but I'll just keep it to this.
3. Nikki Reed
Yes! Nikki is the winner. I loved her in the movie Thirteen! I love her little wild streak and her amazing acting abilities. She is curvacious and has the most beautiful hair. Plus, she has the cutest button nose!

4. Kristen Stewart

Where to start? I love Kristen! Each movie I have seen her in has impressed me more and more. She is WAY more than Bella Swan. The fire you can see in her beautiful green eyes is admirable in someone as young as she is. And she is one of the few women who is equally hot as both a blonde and a brunette.
5. Dita Von Teese
How is it possible for one woman to be so sexy and classy at once? Dita is an icon! I want to be her. I love her pin-up ways and porcelain skin. Anyone with skin like mine is a winner!
6. Nicole Kidman
I love this woman. No one was happier than me when I heard she was marrying Keith Urban. And when she got pregnant with Sunday Rose? Fa-ged-aboud-it! Her skin is flawless and she is the actress I would aspire to be like. Oh, and her Chanel No. 5 ads have to be the most beautiful pictures ever. Her hair in those ads was the inspiration for my "prom hair" senior year.
7. Marilyn Monroe

This shouldn't require any explanation. She was an icon. And if she isn't on your "girls I would totally go gay for" list, then you are not a very good pretend lesbian.
8. Fiona Apple
"I've been a bad, bad girl." She had from Criminal. I remember the first time I saw that video. I was a little scandalized. The woman just oozes sex. And Extraordinary Machine is one of my top ten CDs of all time.
9. Sarah Michelle Gellar

Meow-zah! I love Sarah mostly because she played arguably the most kick ass female character on television EVER - Buffy! She made that character at turns vulnerable and amazingly strong. Even when staking the vamps and having her heart trampled on by one, she always managed to look beautiful. And I am so stoked she's preggers!
10. Natalie Portman
Natalie is so beautiful, talented, and intelligent. She is so articulate and has a fantastic sense of humor. I love how humble she is and how she doesn't take her self so seriously. And she never ceases to wow me in whatever movie she is in.
So, the moral of the story is: I love women who are empowered and intelligent, who have an underlying spark and who dare to be who they are without excuses.
But, in the words of Ms. Bridget Jones: "I'm afraid it's still men in general...Mark Darcy Rob Pattinson in particular."
Now, go ahead and share your secret girl crushes. I won't tell!

Denial...it ain't just a river in Egypt

So tonight we (my bestie and I) were watching L.A. Ink and this dude was getting a Transformer tattoo on his chest and we were totes laughing our asses off at his lameness. And then it dawned on me. I can no longer make fun of Star Trek/Stargate/Firefly nerds. Wanna know why???

Yes, my friends. It is official. I am going to the official Twilight convention in March. And once you go to a Twi convention, there is no turning back. You are sucked into the nerdy abyss.

I think I was already there, but just in denial. But, I'll tell you what. I'd have it no other way.

A new follower!

Thanks spellbound for the follow! I'm up to 12 and I love you all for taking time to read my incredibly lame and sometimes boring bloggy!!!

It's sexy time!

So I am being pretty lazy this week and I am going to post a pic from ROBsessed. Didn't do any major digging for this one, but enjoy none the less. Hunky, serious Rob in 3-2-1...

I almost lost my sauce

I just found out that the Twi cast is coming to Atlanta March 5-7 and I am already scheming how to come up with the money/get the time off from work. I MUST MUST MUST go!!! I missed when P Fatch, Ashley, and Kellan came this year and I felt sad all day that I wasn't a part of the awesomeness. There is no way I'm missing out this time around. The package for the full weekend is $319, which is do-able. I don't know if I am going to go the whole weekend or just one day or what. All of the info. isn't up yet. But, I assure you that I will write about it many, many times on this blog. :)

Oh yeah, Bobby Long tomorrow!!! WOOOOOT! My friend Sarah thinks that BL is a portal to Rob. He's the portkey, like in Goblet of Fire. One touch of BL and we will magically be transported to Robbie's lap. What do you think? All jokes aside, I can't wait to hear him play and I HOPE HOPE he has CDs for sale at the show.

P.S. Sorry for no It's sexy time! this week. I am falling way behind on that. I've been working Wednesdays (making it 6....yes count 'em....6 days a week), so I am not here in the mornings to do the post and by the afternoon I've completely forgotten about it. sigh.

It was a Twilight kind of day

So, it's not really miraculous that most things remind me of Twilight. It just so happens that at least once a day, I see or hear something that makes me think of my beloved vampire tale. Today, I just so happened to have three "man I'm really obsessed with Twilight" moments.

First, my friend at work tells me "I finally saw that vampire movie you like so much." I tried to play it cool with a "Oh, really? You like it?" Inside I was squeeing all over the place. Then my friend George says "Isn't Twilight a movie only gay people like?" And I laugh it off with a "No. And if that were the case, then I'm a big, fat lesbian." Ha. Gotta love the weirdos I work with.

Secondly, I was at the social security office today. And no, I wasn't there to collect my check. I'm not considered mentally incompetent or physically handicapped...yet. (I'm convinced that somehow this Twilight obsession will eventually have a detrimental effect on my mental or physical health.) I was there to get a new social security card and as I'm waiting for my number to be called, I saw a teenage girl walk up front with her copy of Eclipse. She is about a 1/4 of the way in and I immediately smile. I tried to remember approximately what could be happening 1/4 of the way into Eclipse, but I have no clue. It has been so long since I read it. Bad fangirl, bad.

Thirdly, I am sitting here watching Gilmore Girls as we speak and Rory's dad comes to Stars Hollow in his....wait for it... VOLVO! Gotta love it.

I'm not sick.

Later!

Nothing but pure, unadulterated squee

It's sexy time!

So this one isn't exclusively of our Mr. Hunky, but hell the whole cast looked very sexy at the awards. And I can't friggin' wait til November 20. I loved Kristen's dress. (Don't hate.) And I soooooo wanted to rip Megan Fox's head off!

Pic from my fave peeps over at Letters to Rob.

Later!

Speak

So, anyone who thinks KStew can't act can suck it should watch this movie. It was fantasmical. We get to see Kristen act with Mr. Oregano who, by the way, has a pretty small role in this movie and he looks really different than he does now. They both do. They look so young.

Anywho, for those who don't know, Kristen plays a 15 year old beginning her first year in high school. Over the summer her character was raped at a party and she calls the police, but is unable to tell them what happened. The police show up and put the kabosh on the party, which causes her "friends" to be very angry with her. The rest of the movie, she is unable to explain to anyone why she has affectively shut down. Throughout the movie, little bits and pieces of what happened that night are weaved through the current goings-on of the character's life.

Kristen gives a fantastic performance. You really feel the pain and isolation her character is going through. Steve Zahn is also great here, as the art teacher who helps bring Kristen's characer back to life. Two thumbs up!

I'm an eavesdropper

Today while I was rolling silverware and preparing to leave my wonderful (heavy on the sarcasm) job today, I overheard this woman telling her guy friend "I read the WHOLE Twilight series." And then she laughed sort of like she was embarassed. It's okay, young one. Be proud of your love for the Twilight series. You could hear in her voice that she was sort of hesitant to tell him this. But, you know she probably reads blogs like ours everyday. Come out of the closet already! Don't be ashamed.

Speak

I am watching Speak right now and I think I might love Kristen Stewart more than Rob. Review later.

Another new fave Rob video

Every day my love grows and grows. I just want to eat his face. And I love the way he says "grahams." sigh.



Special thanks to Sarah who pointed this one and the one before this one out to me. Love ya girlie!

What the eff, Rob?

How have I missed this one? What the eff?! Is he serious?



A) I love the way he says Buddah.
B) I'm a little worried for his mental health.
C) Can I be the girl he becomes completely obsessed with???

Stephenie Meyer has way too much influence on my life

Last week I was out apartment hunting with my homie and the very first apartment we stopped at, we both totes fell in love with. Her reasoning was slightly different from mine. You see, the apartments are close to the city via the interstate, but they are in a pretty isolated area. They are completely surrounded by woods. Which is what both Sarah and I loved. When I was standing in the sunroom (yes the sunroom!) and was looking out the window, I kept thinking one thing: "This is just like the Cullen house." Sarah didn't agree, but surrounded by windows overlooking a vast amount of trees, I couldn't help but feel like a Cullen. Crazy, I know. And everything we saw after that didn't compare for me. I felt like it was fate screaming at me "This is the apartment!!" Well, that and the fact that it was the cheapest rent of all the apartments we saw that day. Since last week, however, Sarah has found some negative reviews of the apartment online. And while I feel that it would be pretty hard to find an apartment ANYWHERE that didn't have some negative reviews, I realize that we should really take that into account and check out other places. Even if I don't want to and feel traitorous to my Twi-senses in doing so. Crazy, I know.

Later that day we both wanted to eat pizza. So we got out Sarah's sister's lovely GPS (who I think we both have finally grown to trust and love) and looked for a nearby pizza place. Several were listed and, of course, I chose Bella's Pizzeria. And it actually turned out to be very good! I think I might be a little psycho. Stephenie Meyer is influencing way too many aspects of my life. Yikes.

It's sexy time!

Since I have to work at an ungodly hour in the morning, I won't be able to post an It's sexy time tomorrow. And since I missed it last week (I am still sad and ashamed), I decided to go ahead and give you all a little gift and give you It's sexy time early. Enjoy some black and white Rob.
