Random Weekend Observations

A few things of note:

Joanna Krupa's name was brought up when I was watching E! News and for a minute, I couldn't figure out where I had heard her name. Turns out, on Stephenie Meyer's original Twilight movie site (constructed before any of the actual casting had been made), she had listed Joanna as someone who looked like Rosalie to her. I totally agree. Anyway, Joanna is starring in an upcoming movie this year called Six Days in Paradise.

The SVC coven leaders came over to my house last night, and we had several exciting events occur, includingbutnotlimitedto me taking an embarrassing picture at the town festival of my husband with a former coworker he barely knew, simply because she was wearing a "I Run With Vampires/Team Edward" tshirt, toasting to Jace, some AWESOMEAWESOME LaPush mementos from Corinne, and a bird flying into my house at the end of the night (I think it was the Scribe Virgin at work). We also listened to Crash and Burn by Jesse McCartney, which (much to Alison's dismay) is totally a Jace and Clary song, as pointed out by Jes.

I just finished Evermore by Alyson Noel - Kari lended it to me, and I really enjoyed it. The ending was okay-ish for me, but for the most part, I loved it! There are sososo many parallels to Twilight! And I laughed out loud when I got to the end and realized the sequel (due out July 7, 2009) is titled Blue Moon. Niiiiiice. I am so checking out her blog!

Many, many random things. We have an exciting week ahead: a SVC baby shower, Corinne's birthday celebration, and we may get to begin planning for our girls' cabin weekend? YAY!

7 enjoyed the bouquet.:

How did I miss this picture with Matt's co-worker? Was it when we were slamming beers? Mmmmm beers.

Also, no mention of beer pong?

lol on the Scribe Virgin!!!

Erin said...

How on earth did I forget the pong? And the relays. Tippy cup!

We saw the co-worker when Jeremy and Matt were finishing their beers before they could leave the beer garden and you and Erik had left to get mini-donuts. :-D

Love hearing about your get togethers! I look forward to some pics of the SVC baby shower and the cabin fun! You guys'll have to fill in on all the fun!

I too wish I lived just a wee bit closer so I could take part in the SVC fun, (if I was allowed!) sadly I live almost 2 hours away from Downtown! :(

What's Evermore about? Is is YA fic?
