Also, it was death snow.
Anyway, ML and I were all excited because we react to shit like this just like every other adult - we get drunk and throw snowballs at each other. In the house. Plus, as we watched the snow getting deeper and deeper, we both knew there wasn't a chance in hell either of was going into the office today. Thanks, Mother Nature!!
There is something warm and cuddly about being snowbound. Warm coffee, grilled cheese sandwiches and forced interactions are what snow days are all about. So last night I grabbed my Edward blankie and hunted ML down.
Me - "Let's watch the Eclipse video you got me for Christmas."
ML - "Um, no."
Me - "C'mon, please?"
ML - "I'd rather gnaw on broken glass. No."
Me - "We can watch it with the commentary. Robert Pattinson says "boobs" in it."
ML - "Why don't I just say boobs in a British accent and call it a day?"
Me - "C'mooooooooooon!!! Please?"
ML - "Actually, how about you show me your boobs?"
Me - "Will you watch Eclipse with me if I do?"
ML - "Nope."
Me - "You suck. Drink a bowl of herpes."
Then me and my blankie sulked our way down to my office, where we finished watching Season five of Weeds and plotted our revenge on ML.
I actually like watching the movies with ML, mainly because it's like having my own personal Rifftrax commentary. A few weeks ago I forced him watch New Moon with me. I even made him cuddle under the Edward blankie and ignored the long suffering sighs that followed shortly thereafter. ML was in full agreement that Edward should kill himself throughout the entire movie, thought Bella was short for "bellowed" after he watched the whole "I'm-screaming-in-my-sleep-but-actually-making-a-really-inhuman-sound" scenes.
And he wanted to know why no one thought it was weird that a bunch of dudes wandered around the Olympic Peninsula shirtless, regardless of the weather.
So it's really ML's fault that I make him watch the movies. If he actually enjoyed them, I probably wouldn't even ask him to watch them.
Because I'm a nice girlfriend like that.
Edward: Bella, Eclipse was so hot I want to leg hitch you for all of eternity. Or until we get married, anyway. Then I want to have wicked vampy sex and possibly stick my icy cold peen in your pooper.
Did any of you spend your holiday/blizzard watching anything Twilighty? Did you have an S/O (or kid or unwitting neighbor) that watched with you? Maybe more importantly, how do you get your unwilling movie-viewing partner to sit through 124-ish minutes of a Twilight movie? Blow jobs? Blackmail? Roofies? Inquiring minds want to know. Unless it was really graphic and/or involved medical instruments. Oh, who am I kidding? We probably want to hear about it anyway.
