Life is good in general.

  • Work is good.
  • No love life to speak of but I have some awesome crushes and that’s all I can handle right now.
  • I’m catching up on Castle (Hi Nathan! I’ve missed you.)
  • I have great friends.
  • I’m excited for E-Fabulous who is starting her career change. So proud!

I’m looking forward to:

  • My trip to IL for cousin Jennifer’s wedding.
  • My trip to IL for the family reunion (wish me luck, I’m still working this one out).
  • The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner! (or Midnight Sun, whichever comes out first. LOL)
  • The Eclipse movie (leg hitch and tent scene here we come!)
  • The next Sookie Stackhouse book.
  • True Blood!
  • The next A Song of Ice and Fire book (please GRRM?!?)
  • Make It Monday (even those E-Fabulous and I had dinner last night, sorta, and will have dinner again tonight).

Dear Annette,

I feel like I have known you for years. Our mutual friend, Patty, has been telling me about your adventures in college for almost as long as I’ve known her. I have long admired the important work you did in the state of Washington. Imagine our surprise when we found out about your new vocation! I had of course already heard about Dazzled By Twilight, but I had know way of knowing that Patty’s Annette and Dazzled’s Annette were one in the same!

It sounds like you and I discovered Twilight around the same time. I can assure you I’m just as devoted a fan even though I’m not quite as out there in the public eye as you are. I have a semi-anonymous Twilight blog, but I don’t do a podcast or run a store devoted to Twilight or anything. Speaking of that, I thought about sending you my resume when I lost my job in January, but then I realized I wasn’t quite ready for that kind of move. Consider me for any locations in Phoenix though. I’d be happy to represent for Bella’s home town.

You’re probably still wondering who I am. I am the one who sent those girls into your store to meet you today. My friend E and her friend M are in Forks for Bella’s Birthday festivities. I sent them with my very own Twilight scavenger hunt, which I hear you took a look at. One of the items on the list was to get a picture with you. E called me from your store today to let me know she’d just met you. I can’t wait for Patty to see the picture. I meant for it to be a surprise, but now I wish I’d talked to her first. She said you would have gotten a kick out of helping them find a Statue of Liberty paperweight.

It’s past my bedtime so I’ll close with a big Happy Birthday To You! Sharing Bella’s birthday is pretty much like being born on the 4th of July for a Twilighter, I imagine. Fireworks and parades and whatnot. Cool. I do know you’ll probably be working hard so I hope you get some time to enjoy the festivities. I also hope to meet you soon, and not just because that’ll mean I’m in Forks.

The more things change the more things stay the same. I’ve had a lot of ups and downs lately, as you can tell by previous posts. I went permanent at work (yea for no more probation!), but there has been some drama too. Thank goodness for my blog stats. I know that life goes on when I see people are still fascinated with Luke Grimes.

I’ve been delighted the past three weeks to get to know my new teammates through happy hour. It’s too busy to really get to talk at work. I felt pretty isolated at first, until I realized that it was just that everyone is so busy. Now, thanks to happy hour, I don’t feel like the stinky kid anymore.

Tonight, as it was my supervisor’s last happy hour as our supervisor, I decided to stay longer than I have been. It’s a good thing I did. I discovered that there are a few True Blood fans on my team, and even better a Unicorn! Woohoo!

Thanks again, Old Man Bobby, for being cool with me cancelling our plans at the last minute so I could stick around for “team building”.

Between getting firing, job hunting, getting hired, training, adjusting to my new job, and the general tunnel vision I’ve had for New Moon, July somehow snuck up on me. My friend asked last week if Harry Potter comes out this week or next. I must have looked at him so strangely. I thought, “He’s crazy! It doesn’t come out until…Merlin’s Pants! It’s July 1st!” I saw the latest trailer in the theater. I still have such high hopes. It really looks like it will be spectacular.

casting call twilight mesa az – Don’t know why I find this funny, really. I just do.

who is ryan on brothes and sisters is it – Whoa! Keywords, that’s all the Google needs.

luke grimes what films has he been in? – IMDB.com is your friend. Don’t resist.

how many inches tall is jacob black – Oh my. Do you mean Feet? Or do you mean Long? Do you mean at the shoulders in wolf form? It’s a very different question, depending.

The other day Old Man Bobby and I were listening to some Sketching in Stereo and talking about our buddies from the band. I was shocked to find that Rob had been hit by a cab in NYC. I didn’t even know Rob was in NYC! Old Man Bobby promised Rob was OK, and went on to ask if Charlie’s troubles were over. Neither of us knew. (We’re thinking of you Chaaaarrrlieee!)

Imagine my surprise when the very next day I read on Letters to Twilight that Robert Pattinson had been hit by a NYC cab. What a coinci–! My thought process went something like this: “Son of a bitch! Old Man Bobby let me go on and on about Rockstar Rob and didn’t tell me he was talking about RPattz! How embarrassing! I’m glad it was just us in the car.”

So later I told him I had a bone to pick. The use of the word Bone always gets his attention, naturally. When he caught on to my tone he got a little nervous. I chastised him for letting me go on and on about Rockstar Rob like that. He had no idea what I was talking about. I reminded him we had been talking about Sketching in Stereo, then he told me about Rob, and then we started talking about Charlie, and I asked him what part of that conversation was supposed to clue me in that he was talking about RPattz. Warn a girl when your mental train jumps the tracks for crying out loud!

He was embarrassed enough that I didn’t even bring up the fact that he had referred to Robert Pattinson simply as Rob AND expected me to follow along. Not as Your Rob. Not as Rob Pattinson. Not as RPattz. Not even as The Forehead, as he normally does. Just Rob. Anyone know how to spot a Unicorn in camouflage?

BTW, I’m glad you’re OK Rob! Both of you!
