Formerly known as BFF

I’ve posted links to my SIL Hannah’s blog before. She’s my BFF and an all-around awesome person. Well, WAS my BFF – want to know what she did? Really, it’s what she’s GOING to do:

That bitch is going to Forks!!

Here’s the back story:

I’ve told the story of how I got back into reading again mid-2008, starting with Twilight and devouring the whole series. Well, shortly after that, Hurricane Ike rolled through Houston, and even though my brother and his wife didn’t have a lot of damage, they had no power for over a week and the city was a danger zone – no electric or food in the grocery stores, gas shortages, and with firsthand images of Hurricane Katrina’s aftermath still fresh in everyone’s mind, my brother sent her to stay with us for awhile until things were back to at least liveable in Houston. She was missing her husband and, honestly, when you’re married with no kids and dropped into a household with three kids and two working parents it can get to be a bit much. So I lent her my copy of Twilight. I can still see her sitting there after work in my uncomfortable chair, reading and ignoring the chaos around her, occasionally stepping outside to smoke, bringing the book with her. She also tore through the series, and after that I introduced her to the sexiness of TrueBlood and the Black Dagger Brotherhood. She's not one to read romance, but in the case of these three series we do lust over share a fondness for these delicious men.

But I digress… point is we have a special bond over Twilight. She came to New Orleans to watch Twilight and New Moon in the theatre. I sent her the Twilight audiobook and she sent me the rest. We mail each other Twilight candy. I’ve got an Edward Cullen doll, she has a Twilight lunchbox she actually brings her lunch to work in. (OMG, I think we’re nerds!)

And when she goes to visit her mom in April, she’s going to stop by and visit Forks. Without me.

(*clears throat* give me just a moment here to compose myself *sniff*)

She’s going to Forks without me. She’s taking my brother, who doesn’t even know what Forks is. Waaaahhhhh!!!!

Well, *puts on big girl panties*, seriously – I hope she has a great time and I told her if she doesn’t take an obscene amount of pictures I’ll never forgive her. And I expect souveniers.

The real question is – are we going to make my brother wear a Team Edward or Team Jacob t-shirt for the trip?

On a side note: Did you know if you type "Edward and Jacob" into google that "Edward and Jacob kissing" is one of your choices that pops up? Wow!
