I Know Three of You Will Judge Me

Now I know there are Twilight haters out there, but oh well. I enjoy the books and love the movies. My defense to those who mock is that I realize they aren't Proust. They are meant to be for entertainment, and entertaining they are. And yes, there are hilarious parts that aren't intentional, but that is part of the fun. So judge me if you want, I had fun. Lots of fun.

Some friends and I went to see New Moon on the night it came out. We decided to make shirts, because we enjoy the "cougaresque" feeling of ogling Shark-Boy with his shirt off. No, not really. (Is it just me or does he talk like a valley-girl?) I decided to try my hand at freezer-paper stencils, something I have been dying to do for ages. Here are the results. I also did some onesies for the BYU-U of U game. Go Max Hall! (This might be my most controversial post ever! And if you want take the side of the wounded in that argument, let's talk. Seriously people. Ok, moving on.)
If you don't get the joke there, the love triangle is Edward, Bella and Jacob Black. He figures prominently in this book. I'm not just making racially charged statements.

Here are the friends I went with. Can I just say I love my ward? Coolest chicks ever. From left, Moi, Marissa, Lexie, Aubrey and Jade.
We had such a great time!
I am woefully behind on blogging, so expect a few more "fall" and Thanksgiving posts to follow.

No controversy for me. I'm with you all the way. Nice looking shirts, also.

I'm glad someone realizes just how cool we are! I had a blast and plan on going again...and maybe even wearing my shirt for a second time...

I shan't judge (um, is "shan't" an actual word? I'm thinking no). Anyway, as always, I am fully aware that I am the odd man out with the Twilight love (or non-love, as the case may be). Which is why I've read every book, just trying to get it. Sad, because I love me a crappy but entertaining book.

Anyway, love that you did freezer paper stenciling. I've been dying to try it too. You are my personal crafting pioneer.
