Adventures in Twilightland
First, we want you all to know that we realize there is more to life than Twilight. We don't spend every waking moment talking and thinking about Twilight, but it is near and dear to our hearts.
Within this blog you will find our Twilight musings, declarations of adoration, and all sorts of other silly Twilight-related nonsense. And to all you other Twilight fans, we'd love to hear from you.

Twilight Grubbin'

Remember when you found out most of the locations in the Twilight Saga books were real and you spent hours browsing websites and travel brochures planning your Forks vacation? What, Little T and I are the only ones who actually did that?

Alas, that trip has not yet come to fruition, but I haven't given up hope yet. In the meantime, maybe we'll take advantage of the interesting option Bella Italia has been offering since 2011 - they will ship their mushroom ravioli straight to your house.

In case you forgot, Bella Italia is the Italian restaurant in Port Angeles that Edward takes Bella to in the book - Twilight. She orders the first thing she eyes on the menu and ends up eating while Edward chit chats with her and tries to avoid the advances of the waitress.

Well, for only $21.98 you can purchase 20 ounces of delicious frozen mushroom raviolis and dine like a girl who is in love with a vampire in your very own kitchen. Mind you, this product is shipped overnight, which is the real kicker.

I live in Wisconsin, a good distance from Washington, so I expected shipping to be a bit pricey, but not $83.32 pricey! That would bring my grand total to $105.30. Ouch. Think I'll just save the cash and put it away into my "Dorks in Forks" trip fund. I'd rather eat it fresh anyway.

Missing You

Please note that I am just going to pretend that we are all caught up on the movies. Why? Because I am lazy like that. Just play along. It'll be less painful that way.

Throughout the Twilight Saga movies, each director has tried to leave their footprint on the series. Whether it be their choice of music, costumes, or actors, sometimes you shouldn't mess with the original.

1. Edward's hair - Am I the only person who misses the bouffant-like hairstyle Edward sported in the first film? I felt it made him seem more like a teenager slightly lost in time, not a dude in his mid-20s hoping he doesn't have to stop filming in order to shave the 5 o'clock shadow off his face. *There are many, many more hair-related comments I could make about other cast members, but we'll just stick with this one. Though I mourn the loss of Alice's slightly longer hair and weep at Carlisle's helmet head.

He's sexy and he knows it.  

2. The original Victoria - Watching Bryce Dallas Howard take on the Victoria role was both painful and annoying. Mind you, I really enjoy this actress in other movies, but Rachelle Lefevre had a perfect predatory, menacing, manipulative vibe going on. Curse you for giving Rachelle the boot rather than work out a filming schedule that suited everyone's needs. 


I'm going to eat your face, Bella! 

3. Bella's klutziness - Maybe I'm a bit fuzzy on the details, but Bella was waaaaay more klutzy and accident prone in the first 2 flicks, right? Did Kristin Stewart get tired of having to fall off motorcycles and hit people with volleyballs? 

Sorry, couldn't find an image of Bella slipping on the ice outside her house. Its mouth is already hanging open, so just imagine a brown wig on the bear and you're all set.

Breaking Dawn Part 2 Trailer

Admit it, you thought I was dead, didn't you? Meh, it's ok. No offense taken.

Here, watch this while I go ponder what Twilighty-goodness to include in the next blog post.
