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!

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 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.

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.
