We're ever-so-slowly pulling
On Wednesday 9/28, we'll be staying in Seattle. I wish we were going to be there longer because it's a lovely city from what I could tell from the time we were there last year. Sadly, I lasted approximately twenty minutes into our dinner at the lovely Etta's before almost doing a face-plant into my delicious sirloin steak (which eventually ended up in a skillet in Forks - I love me some fancy leftovers for breakfast!) and carting my jet-lagged ass back to the hotel for 10 hours of comatose recovery.
If you have been following the updates in the Forks Forum (and you should be), you are likely aware that Double Dippin' has negotiated a great rate for us at The Mayflower Hotel. Granted, on the surface this place might look a little highfalutin for our needs, but it's centrally located (light rail service from SeaTac airport can drop you right across the street) and the price is right. We'll be determining our meet-up place for the night in the near future - no need to hang out in a pricey hotel bar when all of downtown Seattle beckons! If you are staying at the Mayflower, mention Twitarded for the discounted rate (you can DOOOOO it!). Of course everyone is free to stay elsewhere - there are a lot of great hotels in the area. As always, if you're a local and have any suggestions, please feel free to leave them in the comments.
As a little teaser to help get us ready for Forks2011, we have a new video to share!
I know this video is long and that 11+ minutes is like vampy eternity in blogger years, but believe me, it's captivating. I asked Gus Gus to keep the videos he's editing to under three minutes because I know that we all have the attention span of coked-up Jack Russell terriers, so when he sent this to me I was all "What the what?!" but it goes by in a moment and you'll snap out of your trance twelve minutes later wanting to hug someone. Or book a flight to Forks. Also, I think some of our readers are actually Banshees. Or Sirens. Which ones are the screamers? Anyway, you will not be able to resist their call...
Can you FEEL the love?! Yes you can. Do you want to be there this year? Yes you do.
