First off, some sort of bad news. If you want Twinkies, you'd better hurry up pretty damn fast. Wonder Hostess has shut down, and will only be resurrected if someone buys what's left of the company. This wouldn't be of any concern to me aside from the fact that my mom works/worked their and one of our friends works there, too. So when her store sells off it's inventory or when they get word, my mom will be layed off from work. She worked there 11 years and is about the longest she's worked at one place, aside from a 17 year stint at a John Deere dealership until the mid to late 90's.
I'm pissed off because my mom and one of our friends will lose their jobs soon, all because of incontinent management and a union that wanted to play hardball with said dumba$$ management. But in a way, I'm happy for mom and our friend, because now they can look for work at places that they can at least be treated decently by management and not (hopefully) screwed over. And hopefully my mom won't be out of a job for long
However, on a brighter note, I did get to have a turkey dinner at work today. I worked though one of my co-worker's lunch breaks (I mostly cover lunches) and then I went in for the kill. And if some of you don't feel like making a full dinner this Thanksgiving, then by all means cheat and have Bob Evans cater for you
Not as good as a normal Thanksgiving dinner, but great none the less.

: Great news about your daughter
And no, I don't plan on seeing BD2 any time soon. I'll probably wait for the DVD to come out. I don't like crowds and I find movie theaters to be really dark and stuffy. The only time I want to feel dark and stuffy is when I'm in bed during the winter, preferably with a girlfriend to cuddle with, but I haven't gotten that yet, of course
But anyways, I've never really liked going to movie theaters--they're expensive, its dark and stuffy, and I just don't feel comfortable in those places. DVDs are cheaper than a lot of the movie theaters around here, and I can watch in the privacy of my own home where I have "free" food and whatever. You get what I'm saying? I just don't like movie theaters. It's why I don't go to races around here--expensive, you can't see all the action, and it's noisy and crowded. The expense and the crowds are turn offs for me.Everyone part one
: If I addressed everyone who has seen BD2 already here, I'd be doing this for quite a while, and this message is gonna be fairly long anyways. I just hope that everyone enjoyed the films, and though it's sad that the saga has come to it's end (unless Stephanie decides to start writing more Twi novels soon, which isn't very likely), we're all friends here, and there will be fan fic writers and people like us who won't let the Twilight Saga die. We have to remember, too, that Kristen, Rob, Taylor, and the rest of the cast have given us countless hours of entertainment, have been extremely kind to the fans and are very proud of them, and all have given us good memories that will hopefully last forever. So the cast and crew deserve some thanks from us for, in general at least, making us happy BD2 Berlin
: For there press conference, it seemed that Kristen, Rob, Taylor and Bill had a plan and an agenda for fashion--keep it casual, and keep it black! They all matched during the press conference in casual dress in matching black colors. Only Wyck stood out, and only because he was wearing blue LOL. It seemed that K,R,T and B had a plan there
For the premiere, Kristen was back in gold--but probably more effectively than Monday in a floor length Elle Saab with a slit up the side of it. Even give that, it was probably one of the most conservative dresses or outfits that Kristen wore, but it worked. Again, I must say that the more Kristen and her stylists keep it simple, the more effective it is. Really busy clothes seem to distract from her great attributes such as her eyes and hair. As long as it's kept simple, her natural beauty shines.
Same thing for Rob. He wore a simple light grey suit today for the premiere. Again, simplicity was king, and it worked. As with Kristen, the simpler things are for Rob as far as his clothing, the more effective it is as far as being fashionable and letting the focus be on him as a package, instead of his clothes. It's a balancing act--the clothes make the man, and the woman too, but at the same time, Kristen and Rob do "make" their clothes, too. They have to shine as much as their outfits to make it work IMO. And the simpler, the better. Why? Their beauty is simple and pure, and so the clothes have to match that, and in K's case, the make up too. I like the smokey eye on her and she has beautiful eyes, but even with that, some of the stuff that she's done with that recently, if not for the color or style, would've given her raccoon eyes. Some of that stuff would only work on her, but few other people, as with the LA and London dresses. The simpler stuff is more wide open as to if it would work on others. And of course, be it Rob or most other decently handsome males, who can go wrong with a simple, well fitted suit? Damn sure not Rob!
As for Kristen and Rob, I hope that they get time to rest up and relax. There was a photo of Kristen and Rob in the car that drove them to the press conference, and it featured a clearly fatigued Rob and a slumped over, napping Kristen. It was kinda cute, but sad at the same time. I hope that they can get home soon, spend the holidays with their friends and family, and get some well deserved rest. They helped bring this saga to life on screen, and now that it's over, they deserve to enjoy their memories and work with their friends, families, and loved ones like we are now. It has been a great ride, but it's almost over, but we--like they will--will enjoy the memories and events that made such an impression on us.Everyone part 2
: This weekend, between the NASCAR stuff in Florida and F1 in Texas, I'm gonna try and work on my fan fic and rest up from this week and get ready for Thanksgiving. As for the saga ending, yeah, it's a bit sad, but it has to end sometime, and I'm glad that for most if not all of you that it's ended on a high note. We will have our memories, and there will be fan fic writers out there like me, Ginnie, Kayla, and the rest of you dedicated to your love of the fandom who won't let the saga die, ever. It will be in our hearts and minds forever, and no one can take any of that way.
I'll be back later
