FORKS UPDATE: We Want You! To Help Us Decorate...And Clean.



Good evening my twatwaffle-y friends. I hope Monday was better to you than it was to me. Monday usually makes me feel like I was gang-raped by gorillas and today was no exception. I'm sure it was just payback for taking a long weekend.


In this edition of the Forks Update, I'd like to talk to you about decorating. Decorating is fun and we need your help! You see, since we're invading the Forks Elks Lodge this year, chances are slim there will be even one measly poster of Edward Cullen's mug and we thought it might be fun to fancy the place up a bit. Here's where you all come in. We're looking for a group of maybe 5-10 volunteers to be in charge of all things decoration-related. Just think of it like that prom committee you were on (or not) in high school, except everyone will be way cooler and possibly drunk.

Here's the kicker... the Elks Lodge, er, Elks dudes are very strict about what we can and can't do. Mostly what we can't do. We can't use tape or tacks to hang anything so we'll have to get really creative. And we CANNOT use glitter. The penalty for the glitter offense is... well, I'm not sure, but I NEVER want to find out. Those Elks dudes might have a really big chest freezer in the basement... like someone else I know. *whistles innocently*

THEY WILL RIP US APART AND BURN THE PIECES, PEOPLE. And I'm pretty sure if that kills a Cullen, it'll do us in for sure.

This place needs a woman's touch!

We will also be responsible for leaving the Lodge in the same state it was in -- which I'm assuming is relatively clean and sans any Twilight-y loving touches. I'm sure JJ, STY and I will be randomly picking shit up as the night goes on but we'd love to have some help in this department. I doubt it will be a huge undertaking since no one will be starting any food fights... lest they want to end up in a certain (fairly empty) freezer deep in the Maine boonies.

So if you're interested in either the decorating or cleaning committee, please email me ASAP -- latchkeywife207@gmail.com -- and let me know your interest. It might be good to coordinate with some people who will be driving and might be willing to bring along an FSE or some posters. I would think between the lot of us, there will be lots of Twi-stuff!

Thank you muchly... and OMFG! 45 more days!!

  2. Sorry - I meant to clarify -- you can use tape as long as it's not going to peel off the paint on the walls. So maybe masking tape or that fun tak stuff...

  11. Thanks to everyone who's offering to help us make this trip awesome! I have a feeling the Elks Lodge is going to have a Twilighty make-over - lol...

    And fwiw, I find that wandering around picking up things during parties is very good for managing my anxiety. People have been known to forcibly remove empty cups from my hands in an effort to make me socialize. : )

  12. I lurve decorating. I'd be willing to bring stuff (or mail stuff to the Forks Motel...whatev), decorate, and/or clean-up.

  13. I can help clean up. Finally my OCD tendencies will come in handy!

    And since I'm paying my sister's way, she'll help too. I gotta collect my "sister tax" somehow. LOL

  14. sending you email

  15. Hey y'all. I just spoke with my closest co-worker who is BIG in the Does (female part of Elks). Here is her advise.

    Blue painter's tape will not tear paint off of walls. Many Elks lodges have a drop ceiling with tiles just like in offices. Get some of that clear string you sporty types use for fishing & hange stuff from the ceiling.

    I'll be more than happy to help if I can find a way to visit Forks for under $800. The forum eats all my comments, so don't even consider recommending I go there.

  16. @Twitarded Mom -- thanks for the tips - that will be very helpful. And sorry you can't make it to Forks... :(

  17. LKY- Good news. I finally manned up and decided to go. Since my birthday is in a few weeks I'm asking the parent's for $$$ for Forks trip to be my presents.

    One more decorating idea. 3M makes a line called Commmand for haning things on walls, then taking them down without leaving any marks. Even 50 left marks when he was in Command. tee hee

  19. LTTP... What else is new. Count me in to decorate. I will be so sleep deprived by the time I get there that there is probably no way that I'll make it to the end of the party for clean up.
