Soda Heads or Soda Jerks?

You decide. Recently I posted that the Soda Heads were talking behind my back. I titled it sort of tongue in cheek, but really, what else can you call it? They were discussing me without inviting me to the discussion. I was amused, so I blogged about it. I was flattered when they came and posted here after I posted about them. Then I went back and read the rest of the conversation which included comments about how I should be flattered that they were talking about my post and that their conversation should be viewed as complimentary because they hadn’t called me a dumbass. One of them commented on my blog that they rarely post outside of Soda Heads anymore because they tend to get flamed. Really? I can’t imagine why.

Note to self: Write an article about how the grammar and writing of Twilight isn’t nearly as bad as a lot of bloggers on the interwebs. Work in the difference between “good” and “pleasing” in art.

Recommended reading for the Soda Heads: Benjamin Wheeler’s blog. I’m sure you’d get a kick out of it.

Talking Behind My Back

LOL! I had no idea this was going on. I just happened to notice I had 8 hits from this same referrer. For those of you who don’t want to follow the link this is a thread written by an Anti-Twilight group at SodaHead regarding my On Vampire Lore post. This post by Christine was particularly vexing to me:

I repsect the opinoin. But the whole time I kept saying to myself, “But vampires aren’t real”
and notice how she didn’t touch the subject that REAL vampires simply DO NOT sparkle in the sunlight! I’m almost positive no other vampire story or movie ever has. And that truly is degrading to the religion.

Yeah, I tried to look at this with an open mind, but this really didn’t have an effect on me anyway.

I of course have questions. Why didn’t they post on my blog? I have allowed posts from outside WordPress. Does Christine believe vampires real or not? Religion? I wonder if Christine was talking about Twilight or my post when she said she tried to look on it with an open mind and that it had no effect. Either way it had enough of an effect to cause her to write on an anti-Twilight forum.

Oh the Jealousy!

Thursday my friend E-Fabulous and her BFF are road tripping to Port Angeles and Forks for Bella’s birthday celebration. I couldn’t be happier for them, or more jealous of them. I’m the one who gave them Twilight! I should be going! Whaaa! Oh well, I’ll be there in a way. I’ve sent them with a photo scavenger hunt. They are tasked to go forth and take pictures that will amuse and delight me. I can’t wait to post some! I’ve also asked for a postcard from Forks and a May The Forks Be With You t-shirt from Dazzled By Twilight. Have fun, girls!

Congrats, My Friends!

Congrats to my friends at LTT! I’m very excited for you!

And I also love you, the awesome Twilight (and maybe a few Hosts, too) fandom. I stalk your websites all the time—you guys are hilarious (I recently added LTT to my stalk list; thanks for the laugh lines, ladies). I’m looking forward to seeing some of you in November for a little movie release that I’m excited about. Too many months to go!

Love,
Steph

Steph, I’m so glad you found them. They really are hilarious, aren’t they?

FMCG: Chapter 12

It is perhaps fitting that my old friend Benjamin Wheeler begins his thoughts on Chapter 12: Balancing with, “Oh, Twilight, I’ve missed you. Since our last time together I’ve thought about you a lot, watched the movie based on you, cringed at the movie based on you, made fun of the movie based on you. And all of this made my more excited to get back to you, and finally, this windy afternoon, I have.” Benjamin was away for a while when real life called. I have been away too. My brain was too crammed with my new job and new schedule that I haven’t had time to ponder much. Lately, if I’ve had any blog time I’ve spent it over at Letters To Twilight, for the laughs. I have missed Twilight.

I’m sure that anyone who was following this thread is long gone, but I’ll continue on at whatever pace I can manage. My apologies to anyone who is annoyed that I could not keep up. In case you have forgotten the rules, go read his article and then come back for some discussion with me.

I’m with you on the movie, Benjamin. We could spend a lot of blog time on the various levels of horrible there.

We get some suggestion that Edward is comfortable, both ethically and practically, with breaking in Bella’s house. Instead of Bella walking home, Edward tells her (not offers to, mind you) that he will go to her house and retrieve her truck, which will be in the parking lot when she gets out of school. Bella notes that the key “was in the pocket of a pair of jeans I wore Wednesday, under a pile of clothes in the laundry room” (243). This is followed with a rather nonchalant, “Even if he broke into my house, or whatever he was planning, he’d never find it” (243). Have we actually reached so quickly the point in the story at which Bella is okay with Edward breaking into her house without her permission? It seems so.

I didn’t consider it B & E by this point either. Edward had been doing it for months, and Bella and I had had time to adjust to that. Besides, to me it was more like Edward trying to make up for inconveniencing Bella and showing off for her, at the same time. It made Edward more of a mystery to Bella, so win for him.

What really disturbed me about this was that Bella never refers to “keys”. She only ever says her “key”. She carries around her single car key and uses a house key kept under the eave. She never mentions a key ring or a keychain. I wondered why Stephenie Meyer wrote it like this. It’s like Bella considers herself a guest in Charlie’s house even though she comes in an takes charge. I suppose coming in part way through Junior year with, presumably, no intention of staying much past graduation, she must have considered herself a houseguest and endeavored to make her presence minimal.

Welcome Ireland and Nepal!

Ireland, land of my ancestors, welcome! I have a little shamrock tattoo to remind me where I come from.

Nepal! Wow! I got a hit from the top of the world. Thank you! I have this strange fascination with Nepal that I can’t quite explain, so this is really exciting for me. I’m honored.
