World Tour

Forks, WA


Yes, there is more where that came from!

In honor of the announcement of a new director for New Moon, I decided to treat myself to another Twilight post. Or two.

I’m kind of addicted…

…can you blame me?!

In my defense, this is really a perfect Bella/Edward pose. It fits them. It’s really not because of the breathtaking beauty that I saved this photo. I’m just being a loyal reader, seeking out faithful depictions of the much-loved characters. Really!

A feast for the eyes!

Okay, so these photos aren’t even movie stills. They are, in fact, taken from this month’s issue of In Style. Which I do subscribe to, conveniently. What can I say? I’m quite taken with the chemistry that seems to exude out of these two…

And here they are at the premiere. Quite fashionable, as you’ll notice.

I fear it is now totally evident why I’m having difficulty getting anything done around here. Back to work!

Do the words "I can’t get enough" mean anything to you?

ParamoreNew MusicMore Music Videos

It’s not just for the footage that I include this video. I actually think the song is great, all Twilighting aside. The soundtrack, which I of course bought and downloaded on the day of release, is awesome, incidentally. Especially this song. 🙂

And finally,

Sigh. Swoon.

more of my late evening thoughts…

October 25, 2008

I can’t even begin to say how excited I am about our upcoming vacation to Harbour Island in the Bahamas. We’ll be staying at a different house, but it looks just as amazing as our last rental:

Harbour Island is one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever been, if not THE most beautiful. The sand is a pale pink, the water a stunning turquoise…the island itself is utterly charming. Roosters are a permanent fixture, strolling around the entire island like neighborhood cats. The local seafood specialty is conch, and you can head down to the dock every night to watch the daily catch being brought in. We had such a wonderful time last year, and I can’t wait to return!

On an unrelated note, my attachment to the Twilight saga and all it entails is becoming dangerously obsessive. I found myself worrying about Robert Pattinson (the heretofore relatively unknown British actor playing Edward Cullen) and the fact that I literally cannot think of another movie role, in HISTORY, that comes with such a great amount of pressure. I’m not quite sure he can handle this fame! I also couldn’t help but return to Twilight while I was indulging in the AMC Fear Fest in my previous post-there has been a promo on every commercial break for the Jodie Foster movie “Panic Room”, which stars Kristen Stewart, Bella Swan in Twilight. Is it not terrible that my mind instantly reverted to thoughts like “Hey, that’s Bella! A young Bella, but it’s her!” This is getting out of hand.

Blogging from my new house…

October 13, 2008

Yes, I’m cheating, “borrowing” a wireless connection that miraculously has no password to blog from my house. We have been working hard all day, and I am taking the briefest of breaks before I return to the neverending list of tasks that need doing. Currently, I am sanding the cabinets in the kitchen to prepare them for painting. We’ve decided upon “vermont cream” as our color of choice. I would love to know who has the job of naming the paint colors. You would not believe how many shades of cream we had to sift through before we lit upon “vermont cream.” I have to admit, I’m still a little disappointed that “pot of cream” didn’t make the final cut. It sounded so charming and cute.

I arrived at the house at the crack of dawn this morning, as we had an “all-day” appointment with the gas company, which basically means that someone had to be at the house to anticipate the gas man’s arrival from 8:00 am to 8:00 pm. There is no shortage of work to be done, but being that I was alone, I determined that I had to amuse myself whilst busily scrubbing, sanding, and peeling like a worker bee.

I tuned in to a few old Bones episodes while I gave the cabinets a thorough cleaning. I particularly loved this Halloween episode,

…but alas, I wasn’t able to find it on, and had to resort to a few other episodes.

I also whiled away the time listening to this lovely audiobook:

Still, I cannot get enough of Edward and Bella. I’m an addict. The Twilight saga is exactly “my kind of heroin.” (Twilighters will understand what I mean)

I’m hoping to convince my wonderful husband, who arrived a bit later in the morning and has also been working ceaselessly, if we might stop for dinner at Elephant Bar, a California (or Northwest, West) chain restaurant that I have found to be very appealing. Macadamia nut-crusted fish sounds absolutely heavenly to me at this moment, and I think it would be nice to eat at an establishment in our new neighborhood.

On that note, I should return to my kitchen. There is more work to be done! I’ll finish my post with one of my favorite Booth/Brennan videos-it includes the moment that I decided I loved this show, when Brennan kicks her legs up! How anyone could not LOVE the two of them after that scene, I don’t know. Enjoy!

more Edward and Bella

October 8, 2008

I couldn’t resist throwing this lovely image onto my blog. What can I say? I am bursting with anticipation for this movie! Reading all of the books in the Twilight series was such a wonderful experience, and it’s so exciting to see hints of what seems like a very well-cast, well-executed film. November 21 cannot arrive quickly enough.
