Continuing my fake homage (fauxmage?) to The Bloggess, I present "Shit You Missed Recently Because I Forgot to Tell You."
First and foremost, I want to share this fantastaballs group photo that our fave photographer Gus took while we were in Forks. We wanted to do a group photo last year but we sort of forgot and really, getting a hundred and some-odd women (and a handful of men) do something like this is like herding kittens. Wonderful, exuberant, beautiful kittens.
Clicky for SUPER BIG! [twss]
You can view all of Gus's Forks photos HERE! And if anyone wants to leave a link in the comments to the other Twitards photos being gathered online, I'd appreciate it!
One...attendee conspicuously missing from the group shot is BlowWard [ok I was informed by LKW that BlowWard IS indeed present in this photo. It's like a pornographic "Where's Waldo" - can you find him???], everyone's favorite well-endowed Edward Cullen blow-up doll (or maybe it was Ron Jeremy with a picture of Edward taped to his face - who can tell, really?). Luckily, we have secret footage of BlowWard in the Hoh with his...lady friends, ToeFunny, Billi, and Forks Pimp -
Say it. Out loud. Bacon whore!!!
We ran out of the "FOOORRRKKS!!! 2011" black rubber bracelets that we brought to Forks (I'm hoping some extras ultimately made it to people who could not be there), but My After Car is an XKR has lots of her cool, purple "TWITARDED 2011" bracelets due to the fact that she kinda forgot to give them out while we were there (oops - sounds like something I would do!). She has graciously offered to mail them to people who would like one - while supplies last! You can contact her on Twitter HERE.
Speaking of things we brought to Forks (and omissions from my "Things I Learned In Forks" post), I shipped every single Twilight-themed napkin and paper plate that I had in my collection (which was quite a few) and learned - the hard way - that the napkins are apparently for display use only. If you make the mistake of using them to wipe, say, cupcake schmutz off your face, all the ink will rub off all over your hands and mouth and you will look like you have a cheap newspaper fetish. Disappointed! But at least we didn't buy tons...
Next, I wanted to let everyone know that Red Bella now has the pillowcases (both standard and
WTF was I thinking?! I mean...I love you bitches SO much. Also, I drool in my sleep.
While we were preparing for Forks (read: as I began throwing shit in boxes and suitcases a week before we were leaving), I accidentally mailed out the personalized (to me) Creative Cussin' book by Sarah Royal (it's the the "Redneck Edition" of our beloved "Creative Cursing") and not the one that she had signed specifically for a blog reader to win. Because I am a good sport and also wasn't able to carry one more ounce of anything back to NJ in my luggage, I gave away that copy when we did the raffle Saturday night. I don't remember who won it, but if it was you and you are game, I'd like to offer an exchange. The one dedicated to a Twitarded reader says:
CC on my laptop (aka "where the magic happens" and "the only not-cluttered surface in my house")
Moving on... As I have been reading the comments you've left on our prior Forks-related posts, it's been made abundantly clear to me that we all might have missed some real gems, conversation wise. And antics-wise. And honestly, I want to know what we missed. Because this little blurb left in the comments by libbybelle last week had me in stitches (and cleaning up my monitor after I snorteled all over it) -
@muffintop i'll never forget when you sat at our table and the first thing out of your mouth was "if i was going down on a lady she would have to be bare" ....and that's when i fell in love with you!So share your Forksy anecdotes in the comments! I imagine it'll be like a cross between Reader's Digest "Life in These United States" and the letters in Penthouse Forum.
