Twilight: A Snowman Love Story

I decided to watch “Twilight” to see what all the hype was about. About 10 minutes in, I realized how grave my mistake was.

Being the eternal optimist that I am (pff), I opted to make the best of my self-imposed torture.

I started tweeting (how nerdy am I?) about my issues with the movie. I decided this may make for good blog-fodder, so it will be posted below for your reading pleasure.

I would apologize to Bethis for my Twilight-bashing, but her blog died. Her blog succumbed to the most common of causes for blog-death: its writer met a love interest.

But I digress…

“For some reason I’m watching Twilight. I regret this choice. This film has issues. I will detail them for ur enjoyment or boredom, whichever”
…six minutes later…
1. How come no one seems to notice how pale the vampires are? It’s like glaringly obvious. It’s worse than an albino…”

2. This movie is way too teen angsty”

3. Okay. Seriously. It looks like Edward Cullen is made out of ice. He’s so white he is clear.”

4. Kristen Stewart is CLEARLY Jena Malone. Who are they trying to fool? Photographic proof will be my next tweet”

PROOF

…I decided to stop tweeting at this point and continue the list here…

a. So…when vampires go into the sunlight they become glittery? Something about a vampire with gems glued to him isn’t all that frightening.

b. Note to girl in the movie – When a vampire says he’s never wanted someone’s blood more than yours, follows that up by imploring you not to trust him and then proceeds to compare you to heroin…you should run away, not try to befriend him.

c. So even if they fall in love…what happens when she gets older and he just stays 17? Is he gonna stay with her when she hits 50? My money is on him biting her no lter than her 30th birthday.

d. “This isn’t real! stuff like this doens’t exist!” – as she looks at a large river in the forest. She is easily impressed…and apparently doesn’t get out much.

e. Vampires play baseball..who knew?

f. I guess if you are going to get poisoned, it would help to have a vampire for a boyfriend.

g. So your daughter goes out with a boy and ends up in the hospital with broken bones…so you still let her go out with him a second time…

That movie was terrible.

The Hazards of Love

Where to begin, where to begin…

Do I go with the story that will garner the most attention first? Or Last?

The fate of my journal could rest on this decision.

1. I had a great day on Saturday. I went to Buffalo Wild Wings with Swan and CF to watch the UConn game. Afterward we met up with another friend and hung at my apartment. We watched some TV and attempted to skateboard. No one was injured, so we’ll consider that a great success.

That night I went to my friend, KL’s house. I brought CF, Swan, and two other friends to her house. We also hung out with her two neighbors. I freakin love hanging with KL and her two friends. They are always a riot. We just sat around and drank. We shared stories, asked each other random questions and just had a blast.

Side note – KL’s neighbors are a young, gay couple and they both said I was hot. Now, they had beer goggles on at the time, but I’ll take any compliment I can get. That now brings the total number of girls to call me hot this month to a solid zero and the number of guys to call me hot up to two. Yes! Sort of…Whatever I’m an attention whore, I’ll take it.

2. Sigh. Cute Starbucks Barista is confusing. We’ve talked on the phone and/or texted each other almost every day, but when I mentioned hanging out, she always had a reason why she could not. It’s hard to say how truthful she is, but I want to believe what she says. I know she is a ridiculously busy person – two jobs, school, dance, etc. but I felt like if she wanted to, she could make time to hang out.

I decided I was gonna back off.  I know, typical guy move. Of course, no sooner do I make this decision and she calls me and we talk for like an hour. However, our conversations sometimes go back to the hanging out thing and it never gets anywhere. She also mentions how she went on a date with a guy a few weeks back. These seem like bad signs.

On top of the age thing and these bad signs, she’s also planning on going to school in Columbia (an hour away) next year. She mentioned not being sure if she wants a relationship before transferring there. And today she mentioned not being into the whole “just having fun” thing.

She obviously wants to talk to me because it’s not always me who instigates it. What the hell is going on? Did I already fall into the friend zone?

Maybe she was never interested and just enjoys attention/being friends? Or maybe she was interested but the whole age difference thing kinda freaks her out so she’s afraid to move it past being friends?

I mean, I have no idea what I feel about her, but from what little I know so far, I like. She’s fun to talk to and we seem to get along well. I would like to actually hang out. As you can see the whole situation is strange. I’m not sure what to make of it or what to do.

Thoughts?

3. Things with the Ex have gone oddly well. That is until Friday…

As usual, she came to pick up the puppy (she gets her on the weekends…yea, I know it sounds like I’m talking about two parents going through a divorce and spitting time with a child), but she asked if she could do laundry at my place. She doesn’t have a washer or dryer (I got them in the break-up), so I’ll usually let her use them. I was going to be at work the whole time, so it didn’t bother me.

When I came home that night, she was still there and was visibly bothered by something. I asked her what was wrong and she kept repeating “nothing.” It was clear she was lying for whatever reason. I soon noticed that my computer was on. It was off when I went to work.

I sat at my computer and asked her again to tell me what was wrong. She said it was nothing so I looked at my browser history. I quickly saw that she was on Facebook. I am autologged in, so when she went to the site she was able to see my information. I noticed she had look at my Inbox. Awesome.

I asked her again what was wrong and if she was sure there was nothing she wanted to tell me. She again told me nothing. I then asked: “You know I can see the history on my computer right?”

She then confessed. I was angry and annoyed, but I didn’t make that huge of a deal out of it. I mean, if I used her computer and went to facebook and was autologged in to her account, I’d be extremely tempted to snoop. What I did not know was what was exactly bothering her. The only two messages she could be upset about were to Bloggy and a friend I used to work with.

The message to Bloggy mentioned hanging out when I was home with her and Shorty. I assumed this was it.

Surprisingly, I was wrong. The message to the friend I used to work with was the culprit. I was talking to her about her recent break-up with her boyfriend. In the message I mentioned how the Ex and I still hang out and it was going well. But I made some comment about how it seemed we might be hanging out because it was comfortable and not because there was any excitement/spark left. Since the Ex and I are not hooking up, I thought this was obvious to her.

She said she knew this was the case, but had never heard me admit to it. She was bothered by the fact, that I had finally caved and admitted we had lost the so-called magic.

We talked for a little bit and then she went home. It was odd. It’s human nature to want your Ex to still want you. It’s a comfort thing. You don’t want them to move on because they could be your back-up. Or things could turn around. I can understand that feeling and that’s what appears was going on in her mind I guess.

You’d think at 26 I’d have all this relationship business figured out.

I’m Not Comfortable in My Own Skin

It’s been a little since I’ve updated, but that’s mostly because there is not too much going on.

Quick Updates on the proverbial issues…

Work – Still a major pain in the ass. If it wasn’t for my work friends and day dreaming about upcoming events I don’t know if I could survive throughout the day.

Dog – The pup has been getting into a lot of trouble lately. She has gotten into the trash, taken every single sock I own and threw them around my room, attempted and subsequently caught a bird in her mouth, and continues to bug me every 5 minutes to go outside. I don’t know what her deal is, but I still love the mutt.

School – I am finishing up my most recent course and I only have one left! I will be done in May and officially the smartest person at work (on paper).

Apartment – Bought some more stuff and decorated a little. I still have a ways to go, but it is getting there.

Girls – Same old here too.
Cute Starbucks Barista
We’ve done some chatting via text and she called me the other night and talked to me for about 45 minutes. I learned a lot about her and to be honest I am rarely remind of the age thing. She doesn’t seem immature, but every once in a while she mentions something that is going on in her life that reminds me of her age. She is always crazy busy so it’s damn near impossible to actually see her and I don’t know if I want to try and make plans. I said I would let her handle all that because I didn’t want to seem pushy – again, due to the age thing it could be perceived wrong. Does that make sense?
The Ex – We continue to hang out from time to time and everything is fine. No arguments, no “us” talks, no drama. It’s just nice. Two best friends hanging out. Sure, it can be confusing (and no there is nothing physical that has happened), but I’m happy with the situation.
The Avid Texter – She had the baby (remember she was a surrogate) and has been quite MIA because of that. She started texting me today, so it looks like she will be back in full force. She is aware of the CSB and seems to be cool with it, so maybe my worries about her liking me were false. This would be good, because she was fun to hang out with.

Upcoming Excitement
-I am off this weekend so I’m trying to get some awesome plans in order. I hope to go out drinking with friends at least one night and maaaaaybe I can try and sneak something with CSB in there. We’ll see though.
-April 1-7th: I will be back in beautiful Connecticut to see my family and friends. I can not wait to see everyone. I also have plans to meet up with Shorty and Bloggy! I’m really excited to be Shorty who has been one of my best friends for years. I am equally excited to be meeting Bloggy! I doubt our plans will be as epic as Bloggy’s recent endeavors, but that’s okay. We can’t all be rockstars.
-April 24 – dmb in Charlotte!!! I’m still hoping to get enough money to get 4th row seats like last year. That was one of the best experiences of my life.

I hope you are all having a great week!

Folie a Deux

I am so incredibly happy that I created this blog and then joined The 20 Something Blogger community. Both of these actions were inspired by Bloggy McFlirtsalot. It’s really strange on this journal came to be. I’ve never even met Bloggy, but just by being introduced to her blog via a mutual friend, I’ve been able to “meet” or read about some awesome people.

I’m at a point in my life that could be called a number a things, but the most important thing I needed was to feel connected to some new people through our mutual understanding and experiences. The responses have been amazing. I’ve found there are a lot of cool people out there that I will probably never meet but they have left some kind of imprint on my life. Granted I may not remember ever comment or pseudo convo we had through message boards and comment sections, but that’s not the point. For a fraction of a second or minute they brought some kind of joy or humor to my life. There is nothing much more exciting than getting an e-mail letting me know that someone has commented on my journal.

People remind me that there are so many people that understand what I am going through. We all have our issues and I’m sure our blogs are our ways of reaching out for some “companionship” or advice when our regular friends are not around or just are not doing the trick. (FYI – I just typed out “drink” when I went to put “trick.” Wow…can you tell where my head is at?)

Whether reconnecting with some of my close friends (Partner-in-Crime and more to come) through their new journals or comments to mine, or learning about other people throughout the world, I’ve been able to gain some perspective on other people in my age group. We’re a lot more similar than we imagine. I’m sure the picture-perfect view we have of each other could be shattered in 10 mins of getting to know each other, but that’s part of the beauty. I am more likely to assume a fellow blogger is totally awesome, whereas if I meet someone in public something usually happens within the first few minutes of meeting them that will turn me off.

I’ve been able to read about the sexcapades of “Courtney” and “Christina,” the highs and lows of relationships passed of Jordan, the awesome adventures and thoughts of a girl from Argentina, to name just a few.  Many of these fellow bloggers have linked to my blog and vice-versa. This leads to more readership and my blog views continue to rise because of it. Every week someone new leaves me a message or requests my friendship. It’s a really neat experience. So, yea – Thanks. You kids rock.

On that note – I believe I am in need of some scandal. I need this on a personal level (revenge, self-esteem, etc.) and on a blog level. Everyone else has these great stories and sure, I could rehash some from my glory days, but I need something new.

I need a great scandal. One that does not involve the Avid Texter. That may be becoming an unwanted situation, but more on that later.

I ideally need to just get a little drunk and go do something nice and stupid. Preferably, it would involve a pretty girl going through the same types of things as me and does not want a damn thing out of it. Aaaah this brings back memories of college. I miss those times.

So what do you say? Want to be my “nice and stupid” something? Sounds even more enticing when I refer to you as that, huh?

But seriously, is there anything better than having a mutual no-strings-attached night of fun with someone who’s just a tad off center like yourself?

…is going to force me to retire from the blog world. I was just beginning to find my stride and then she writes the blog of all blogs. My life is so boring right now that I could not touch her latest entry. Anything I planned to write will be utterly boring in comparison. My ego haz been shamed.
