Forks Road Trip and Girls' Day Out

You guys should all start hanging out with Inksplasher, Karlene Browning. Throughout the month of June, she held the most awesome blog contest ever, a virtual road trip to Forks, Washington, to celebrate the release of Eclipse. We had some serious fun. Here's me with Suan at the top of the Space Needle.We went shopping for prom dresses to go to a Twilight prom. I think I look divine.
And we went cliff diving - yes, indeed we did - and I bought this fab-u-lous T-shirt.Then Sarah Eden and I went up to the Cullen's house, but they weren't home. Stupid unpredictable vampires.We even went to a Twilight convention and Sandra and I posed with Jacob. I wanted to pose with Carlisle, but he was busy.

Then last Saturday, we went to see the movie together as a group of ten. No, we didn't go at midnight on opening day - we're not that looney - but we had a lot of fun going at the perfectly sane time of 11:45 am.

The movie was pretty good - they've improved their special effects and make-up quite a bit, and I liked how this one was put together.

After the movie, some members of the group had to leave, but the rest of us went to lunch. Left to right: April, Cassidy, Megan, Ryan, Suan, Me, Sandra, and Karlene. (A charming and somewhat technologically challenged waiter took our picture.)

Karlene sent us home with great goodie bags full of Twilight-related stuff, including this great fork (Get it? It's set in Forks?) theme candy, a Twilight bingo game, and sorts of other cool prizes.Thanks for hosting such a fun party, Karlene, and I'm definitely in for the next one.

I guess I'm loony then, because I went at midnight. Actually, I went at 6:30 pm and watched all 3 movies in a row.

Even I think that was a bit loony, but I was with 2 friends (that I've known since school days) and it was a lot of fun to hang out with them all evening.

I did mean loony in a very loving way, Anna. :)

I had a blast! It was lots of fun. If I were independently wealthy, I'd do one of these crazy trips on a regular basis but IRL. :)
