The Memory Game...

So, I'm putting this up even though hardly anyone leaves me comments (blog-stalkers!) so thanks Amie...... anyway...

Heres What you Do
1. As a comment on my blog, leave one memory that you and I had together. It doesn't matter if you knew me a little or a lot, anything you remember!

2. Next, re-post these instructions on your blog and see how many people leave a memory about you.It's actually pretty cool (and funny) to see the responses. If you leave a memory about me, I'll assume you're playing the game and I'll come to your blog and leave one about you.

And lastly....I can't wait for Friday night! I'm so stinkin' excited for Breaking Dawn I can't even read anything this week. I pick up a book and I just can't seem to get into it because I'm anticipating my new book. Urgh!! Hurry up!!!

Twilight Tag (Extremely Late)

Okay, so Amie tagged me awhile back, so I recorded a video response that came out horrible. I appear to be sitting behind Jabba the Hutt in a really dark room. So, I just couldn't do it. But, I have it to inspire me that I need to lose weight and install better lighting in the family room. Anyhoo, I decided this morning that I really needed to post this before Breaking Dawn comes out, so here we go:

Who is your favorite character?

Well, I have to admit, this sort of changes each time I read the series (or listen to it, I go to sleep w/my ipod playing sweet, sweet Twilight series). Right now, I would have to say Edward. I don't think I have to go into his positive attributes, but I just like that he plays with her hair, wants to know what she's thinking, listens to her (okay maybe because I'm lacking a bit of this right now in my life LOL).

Which character are you most like?

I don't have a character that I am most like, I just have little parts of many of them. I am a worrier, like Bella. No matter how much someone tells me not to worry, I do anyway. Not to mention the fact that I have weird dreams (but luckily, not always scary). I am like Renee in the fact that I pick up hobbies and quickly get bored w/them. Scrapping is one I've kept for awhile, so I'm proud of myself. Also, I can relate to her fear of Bella making the same mistake she did (or the mistake she thinks she made), and so inflicting a fear of marriage into Bella. I don't do that with my kids, just make sure they are fully aware that I will expect them to go to college, then get married and then have kids and not follow my path. I'm also a bit like Jacob (alright Amie, hold on, let me type LOL) because I can quickly morph into a wolf....okay, just kidding... I can quickly get angry or upset.

Team Edward or Team Jacob?

*sigh* Team Edward, but let me say this. I love Jacob. I understand him and haven't pushed him aside like many out there. It isn't his fault he fell for Bella, it's not his fault he can't control his emotions or temper. He's a stinkin' werewolf for heaven's sake. He is also really young and hasn't had the years of experience Edward has had to learn self control. But, that being said, even Edward fights with self control. When he is over 100 years old, he will behave better. He is also furry and warm like my husband LOL.

What are your predictions for Breaking Dawn?

I would really like for Jacob to imprint on someone, I think that we will definitely have some Italian visitors and I hope that Bella gets to take them on as a vampire. I think that we should get to experience Bella's change and education as a new vampire. I unfortunately do think that someone is not going to make it, and I don't like to dwell on that unfortunate thought, but heck, even Harry had to deal w/death and in Book 7 a whole lot of it!

What do you think Bella's powers will be?

Okay, this is not my idea, but one I read in a really interesting fanfic on Twilight Moms. I totally dug it and thought it would be interesting. So, let's go with it. Bella can use someone else's power when she is touching them and only when she is touching them. So, she can hear thoughts when touching Edward, see the future when touching Alice..get it? Also, her ability to not be influenced by peeps like the Volturi can also pass to someone when she touches them, so if Jane was trying to use her power on Edward, if Bella was touching him he would not feel it. (Jane is kinda like a Death Eater using the Cruciatus curse isn't she?)

So, there is my Twilight Tag....I am now going to tag Brooke and my Mom (Mom, do it on email to me please?!?) Amie, sorry it's so late and not on a vlog. Someday, when I'm not Jabba.....

Hey, let's also open this discussion up...where's the weirdest place you saw someone reading Twilight? I'll start.....foyer of the Temple on Saturday.....anyone else?

When you are torn...

So, yesterday I sang at the Variety Show here at my work. It's for the residents (remember I work in a Nursing Home) and for staff to just do skits or dance or sing or whatever. I sang "Evergreen" by Barbra Striesand since it's one I already know. I remembered all the words and everything LOL. When it was over the new Director of the agency I work for told me I did a good job and somehow everything twisted into them wanting me to perform at a Veteran's Fundraiser on Saturday. At a resturant.

Remember that old Saturday Night Live skit with the lounge singer.....

I was torn, I already had plans with my family on Saturday. I don't do performances like that. I don't have a repertoire I can just pull out of my...head...nor do I have the time to perfect it. I don't play and intrument (the kid they want me to sing w/ plays guitar and sings...literally think of a 17 year old Elvis, with the looks, the voice and even the southern accent, who is also the Director's son!). I would literally be doing karaoke. It's weird.

But, I can't help but feel bad about not doing it. Are they expecting me to? Am I ruining a chance to get in with the new director helping my career-a career I really don't want? I feel so, so I don't know. I've been so emotionally lately, that I can't help get teary just thinking about it. Yuck, I hate feeling this way.

So, should I feel bad turning them down? I did offer them my services in the future as long as I get some more planning. I just don't know. What do you think?
