my big fat forks summer

For the past year or so, I've periodically written about Forks, Washington ... in many different capacities. It's rather of an enigma-town for me: it's the place that "took" my husband to serve away from us for a while, yet also the place that started my love affair for all things Twilight. But for the next six weeks, Forks will simply be the place where Aidan and I will spend our summer vacation.

I've been horrible about packing because, to be honest, I've been putting off breaking out our sweats and jackets again. But, despite the cold and rain (perfect vampire weather, BTW), it should be quite an adventure.

I have no idea what the next several weeks have in store for us, but it should be memorable. Maybe I'll experience a few things that will be blog-worthy. ;)

david letterman is pathetic

Just a thought ... would the public reaction have been the same had David Letterman made similar comments about an underage Sasha or Malia Obama being "knocked up" by a ARod?

Yeah, as if. I think not.

Double-standards suck.

And what the fuck is wrong with the collective [lack of] morals in this country? I mean, the laughter from the audience after Letterman's comments was almost as sick as the original slur.
Letterman came under fire for his Tuesday night monologue in which he noted that the 2008 Republican vice presidential candidate attended a Yankees game during a trip to New York City, where she was honored by a special needs group. Letterman referred to Palin as having the style of a "slutty flight attendant."

He then took a shot at Palin's daughter, saying, "during the seventh inning, her daughter was knocked up by Alex Rodriguez."
Letterman later attempted to spin things by saying he was referring to Palin's older daughter, Bristol, not 14-year-old Willow. Pssst ... hey, Dave. In case you weren't aware, Bristol wasn't even at the game ... Willow was.
"Acceptance of inappropriate sexual comments about an underage girl, who could be anyone's daughter, contributes to the atrociously high rate of sexual exploitation of minors by older men who use and abuse others," she said.

Palin's husband, Todd, echoed her sentiments, telling, "Any ‘jokes’ about raping my 14-year-old are despicable. Alaskans know it, and I believe the rest of the world knows it, too."

The whole thing really pisses me off. The number of "celebrities" I can stomach these days is becoming fewer and fewer.

Totally out of control.

not on the team, but maybe a cheerleader ....

OK. I'm as Team Edward as they come.

But if Jacob Black (aka Taylor Lautner) keeps looking like this (according to People, that is indeed the plan), my inner cougar may have to make an occasional appearance or two. Meow.
As the anticipation for the Twilight sequel New Moon and future follow-ups get bigger and bigger, so does Taylor Lautner, who'll be putting on even more bulk for the third film Eclipse.

"Jacob's character is continually growing throughout the series," Lautner told PEOPLE at the MTV Movie Awards Sunday night, "so I got about eight weeks off before I go back again for Eclipse and I'm going to be hitting the gym."

Wow. Our little Jacob is growing up.
