I’m writing this as I take my mundane Bart ride home from work, and as I’m writing, the post vacation trauma finally hits me albeit a day late. Anyone who’s ever come back to work after an awesome vacation knows what I’m talking about. It’s that downward spiral of coming back down to reality and realizing just how much you hate your job and seemingly stagnant life. I convinced myself to go on the WTFancouver trip even though I am currently living paycheck to paycheck not necessarily to stalk Twilight cast members (Although a good amount of that did occur) but mainly to surround myself with beautiful, talented, and successful women in hopes of motivating myself to finally pursue the career I’ve always hoped for and ultimately the happiness I believe I deserve.
I got that and then some.
My bf who I’ve compromised with and have now branded a “supportive penis toting hater,” asked me if I’d still be as heavily involved with WTForks during the entire duration of filming for the rest of the series. He then asked me, “What happens when the movies are done?”
GAH! While the thought had never occured to me, it was still something I could not fathom. If Summit decides to film 1 movie a year, by the time Breaking Dawn releases it will be 2011 and I will be *GASP* 30 (That deserves a holy shit and a good God). Will I still be as Twihard then? Will fans still be fanatics? Will WTForks still have as many hits? Is the Twilight phenomenon just a current trend or will it attain long lasting credibility and dedicated fans that parrallel those of Star Wars? I can’t imagine coming to work and actually working instead of WTForks blogging or reading other Twilight blogs lol!
Not trying to be pessimistic – just realistic.
But then I felt somewhat comforted knowing that as long as I have at least 1 more person to talk to about Twilight with, I’ll always be an “active” fan. And regardless of if the hype dies and movies are done, I will still have memories of the trip and more importantly, the friendships I’ve made from it – no homo.
So what about YOU? Is there life after Twilight? What does it look like?
Now, to lighten up the end of this blog I wanna leave you with some fun facts I learned about each of these WTFabulous ladies during our trip ‘cuz I’m seriously starting to get slightly depressed lol.
Miss Lawn – Does the best Vietnamese nail shop lady impersonation next to Anjela Johnson. I swear it started to freak me out ‘cuz she was so on point. “Why u hah no boy-freh?”
The Mayor – Is the biggest Sam Bradley/The Darcys fan EVER (lol). Or at least you would’ve thought it by the way she was GIGGIN at the concert. Never in my life have I witnessed a brown girl rock out so hard, it was the cutest thing ever.
Betsey J – Betsey sleeps with a smile. I promise. The first night in Vancouver I sat up from the pull out couch and saw Betsey sleeping on her stomach with a smile on her face. She MUST’VE been dreaming about Edward.
Jessica Cullen – THIS is a natural pose for Jess.
Queenie – Is the best bed buddy ever. She doesn’t make weird noises. She doesn’t move around unecessarily. She doesn’t hog the blanket. And she doesn’t play footsie, even though she says she does. I look forward to spooning with her in the future.
Josie – Is related to Rino Nakasone, or needs to be. ‘Cuz I swear they look alike.
Melissa – Does not chew her food when she eats. On our drive to Vancouver from Seattle we stopped by McDonalds for a bite to eat. We both ordered a Big Mac but I swear she was done before I could even take a sip of my sweet tea. She has since suffered the consequences of this and has learned to chew before swallowing *AHEM* Mel! LOL.
Michelle – Really does have OCD. Any sanitary accesory you need, she’s sure to have in her sandwhich bag which STAYS in her purse at all times. Dromamine? Check. Wet wipes? Check. Period pads? Check. Purell? Check. I’ve even grown accustomed to wiping my utencils before using them because of her ass. Thanks Miche for making me scared to eat in public.
And there you have it. I feel better already! Ladies, feel free to add 🙂
