Just for shits and giggles

Life is too short not to laugh, right? Exactly.

There is a whole series of videos by TooVamptastic on YouTube
done Family Guy style. Here are two of my favorites.

Kristen gets the last laugh on this video as two different photographers
fall down while trying to take pictures of her arriving at JFK.

I found this online one day looking for images of Rob (shocker, I know).

It prompted me to create this.

Damn her and her fade to black!

If you aren't familiar with Rifftrax, you need to visit Twitarded
and watch the Rifftrax videos posted there. Too funny!

Speaking of too funny, do yourself a favor and check out this new blog: Tongue Twied. It won't
take you long to get caught up on all her posts. I promise you, every one of them is full of WIN – 
so much so, that I'm willing to forgive her a few things *coughsheisnotabigrobstenfancough*.

I am also loving Musing Bella's blog called Cheaper Than Therapy.

And a big welcome to smartEpantz who just launched
her brand new blog called Take Some E.

If you're still with me, I'll leave you with this. It's the video I made about
my Pocket Edward's adventure with Mrs. P at TwiBite's avi.

I know, I know. I said I was leaving you with that video. But if you
are into Pocket Edward, visit the blog Living with Edward.
It makes me laugh...out loud...every time she posts!!

Live, Laugh, Love

Remember Rob

Remember when we said we couldn't wait to see
Rob looking like Rob instead of a pale vampire?

Remember when we were drooling over the
videos and pictures during filming in NYC?

Seriously! How tiny is she?!

Remember when the movie poster was released
and we thought it was so beautiful?

Remember when he finally went on the press junket
and we got awesome TV interviews and pictures?

Total win!!!!!

Remember when Kristen attended the
LA premiere to support her man?

Couldn't resist.

Remember when it finally opened in theaters?

I was following my son's college baseball team
on their spring training trip when the movie was
released. I saw it at this small theater in Arkansas.

So what happened? I've talked to a lot of you who haven't seen the movie yet. I know the ending is controversial, and I understand the heightened emotions surrounding it. I wish I was a better writer and could tell you all the reasons why you should see it, though. Luckily, I know someone who is.

I urge you to read the review written by SuzsPetals and reconsider. Thank you, Suz, for writing such a thoughtful review and for allowing me to link back to it: 'Remember Me' breaks the vampire out of his coffin by SuzsPetals.

Remember Rob

On a side note, Suz also has an awesome fanfic story that she is writing. It's not like anything else I've read, meaning it's not your smut-for-the-sake-of-smut story ; ) It has an engrossing plot and is so well written. Check out "The Family Business" here.

About three things I am absolutely positive.

First, I am Team Edward.


New Moon


Breaking Dawn
 *fingers crossed*

Second, I am Team Rob.

Vanity Fair
(deleted scenes only)

Ring of the Nibelungs
(voice dubbed)

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

The Haunted Airman

The Bad Mother's Handbook
(available on YouTube in 8 parts)

The Summer House
(12-minute short, not released)

How to Be
(DVD extras are priceless!)

Little Ashes

Remember Me
(Please support Rob and see this movie!)

Bel-Ami (filming)

Water for Elephants (signed on)

And third, I am Team Travis.

My son turned 22 on Friday. He spent the day doing what he loves – pitching. He pitched a complete game and recorded his college baseball team's first conference win of their young season. He had been sick all week, so we didn't think he would pull it off, but he did. It was the best way to spend his birthday : )

Mama Cougar's New Moon DVD Release Party Kicked Ass!

Well, it finally happened. My real life collided with my blogging life. It was awesome! I found Mama Cougar through Twitarded when I first started blogging. MC and I bonded over blogging, Rob, and living in Illinois.

I had read about and seen pictures of MC's Twilight DVD Release Party, so when she invited me to attend the one she was hosting for New Moon, I jumped at the chance. It was everything I had hoped it would be and more. Those of you who have already been lucky enough to meet fellow Twihards know what I'm talking about. You get the chance to hang out with people who get it/you.

With MapQuest directions in hand, I made the three-hour trek to the small, rural town that is home to The Cougar's Den. It looks a lot like the small, rural town of Taylor Ridge that I live in.

Having 17 in the population number was a "good sign." LOL!

Here is MC's video about the party preparations and
the specific contents of our incredible swag bags.

Swag Bags

Party Central

Great attention to detail

Alice's yellow Porsche (or Ferrari as Natalie called it - lol)

Mary (aka Mama Cougar) and Me

Sarah (aka Lil Cougar), Me, and Mary

Papa Cougar was unbelievable! He ran for the pizza, made sure
our drinks were always refilled, took pictures for us, etc., etc.
Click here to read more about him and see pictures
from last year's Twilight DVD Release Party.

The early crew – our group doubled before the night was over.

Our toast to @VitaminR70 with Charlie's drink of choice

Our Jell-O shot toast to Robward

Pocket Edward found something he liked.

Look closely at the receipt. Our pizza was
ordered by none other than Bella Swan ; )

The infamous room!

Bella (panting after Robward, I'm sure)

Our Jell-O shot toast to New Moon

Mary getting ready to replace the Forks DVD with New Moon.
She bought the Walmart special edition DVD btw.

Rules of our drinking game. Papa Cougar was busy handling refills!
Who knew drinking every time we saw plaid would be what did us in.

The plaid count started immediately with the Remember Me trailer.
Completely forgot it would be included on the DVD. If you haven't
seen Rob's performance in this movie yet, you're missing out. Go!

It's time, it's time, it's time!

She moaned, he moaned, we all moaned ; )

Edward: Marry me.
Bella: *gasp*
Us: *applause*

Then we watched the special features, which included behind-the-scenes footage and a sneak peak of Eclipse. Mary and I totally FREAKED OUT when we saw Rob running with his beanie on. One more reason I love her – she loves Rob's beanie!! (I watched some of New Moon with the commentary turned on with Mary before I left this morning, and it was very interesting and funny. Can't wait to listen to all of it.)

I can't thank Mary and her family enough for hosting the party and taking me into their home. We are already making plans to meet half way to watch The Runaways together, and I look forward to many more "play dates."

Eclipse Behind-the-Scenes and Sneak Peek Video

I watched this video again this morning at Our Life On No List, and they wanted to know what we thought about the footage. I am posting the video here and asking you the same question. My random observations are listed below.

– Love the way Rob says Beller.

– Hate hearing Mike Welch saying that this movie is going to be darker, which is why they got David Slade. Darker than New Moon? Let's hope not!

– Love Rosalie's hairstyle, especially the braid.

– I wish Rob had gone barefoot instead of wearing the short black socks while running, but still love it/him.

– Anyone else think it's gross that Taylor catches grapes thrown by people who probably haven't washed their hands recently?

– 3:36 mark – Looks like Kristen is wearing Rob's shirt. LOL!

– Jackson's hair looks better in most of the scenes, too. THANK GOD!

– I love listening to the entire dialogue between Bella and Edward, but hearing Robward whisper "I've told you" gives me shivers.

Last, but not least, Amy from missamyjoon designed my current banner. Thanks, Amy!!!
