1. If there were a reality show starring Cat Deeley and Tim Gunn, doing something - anything - for an hour every week, I would watch it.

2. SYTYCD is the lamest show in the history of time.

(I don't really mean it. I love you, show, I do. I just don't like you very much right now.)

3. This morning I did a very silly thing. I went early in the morning to the Good Morning America studios to shriek with a bunch of fangirls for Stephenie Meyer. (For those who may not know, she is a BYU grad who writes books about sparkly teenage vampires and the whiny emo girls who love them. Also, shirtless werewolves.) My old roommate Jenny emailed me on Tuesday saying that the publisher was looking for Twilight fans to be in the studio for Stephenie's interview, and all you had to do was email them with your name. So I thought, why not? And I did.

Let me first explain the way I feel about the Twilight books. They are like cake. I know that cake contains way too much sugar and has zero substance and will probably make me feel kind of ashamed after I finish it, but if you offer me a piece of cake I will eat it, and I will love every minute of it. Because I don't eat cake for the nutritional value. And you know what? If the inventor of cake was on Good Morning America, I would go on the show and thank that person for bringing the sweet, delicious nonsense into my life.

Anyway, it was a lot of fun, although Jenny and I were probably the only people who didn't have t-shirts and/or posters. BUT I did bring my Twilight book and got it signed. Stephenie's rep said she probably wouldn't have time to stick around and meet fans after the show, but Stephenie actually came out before her segment and spent time signing autographs and taking pictures with the 150 or so fans that were there - she was really nice, and made sure she didn't miss anyone. Also, she said she loved my hair.

Also, Diane Sawyer was there, and she is lovely.


  1. Why the lack of love? Were you hoping that Mark would stick around? Or Chelsie? Will should still be on. At least he would give Joshua some serious competition. Katee is the best chance that the women have.

    Or maybe it's that you were diggin' Mary's outfit?

    Do explain....

  2. I love your analogy of cake and Twilight because I agree with it.

  3. You just hit the nail right on the head with the Twilight phenomenon..I feel the exact same way. I hate admitting I liked the books, but they are fun and different and it's so indulgent to be mindlessly girly now and then. I love you hair too.

  4. Heck, I'd just go for Diane Sawyer! My sisters love the vampire books- and put 3 of them down in one weekend. i've not cracked one open, dont think it's my style. maybe if they made us weekly a book, i'd read that.


  5. You have perfectly expressed why I read and love the books. LOVE your analogy. Also, like Stephenie, love your hair.

  6. Love the pictures! Isn't Stephenie adorable! That would have been awesome to be there! Glad you had fun!

  7. you are beautiful. the twilight series is in every shape and form, a piece of literary cake.

    you should come to utah and see the movie with me, it comes out the day before my birthday. hmm you should come. may i bribe you with the promises of real cake?

  8. Okay, I'm betting that you'll get an email about this comment, or else you'll never get it, seeing that this was forever ago.

    I remembered this post, so when you linked to it I had to read it with my new Twilight-eyes--I have to tell you, I have been bursting into laughter at uncomfortable weird times (like walking out of King Soopers, or just cleaning the house) when the phrase "Sparkly teenage vampires and the whiny, emo girls who love them. Also, shirtless werewolves."comes into my head. Seriously, I can see you saying that in my head and I laugh out loud every time I think about it. I might quote you when I do my Twilight review, if you don't mind. :)
