Matchmaker matchmaker make me a match

Seriously. I mean I'm going to be 43 tomorrow. I would love to meet my match. Where the hell is he??? Apparently he isn't anywhere I've been because as you can see...I am still single.

Good grief that word just looms like a huge thunderhead threatening to spew out an F5 tornado. Let's just draw attention to ourselves shall we? When I was younger the word "Single" was not ugly. It meant you were enjoying life. Partying and having fun. Did you know that the "S" word for a woman of a certain age draws really horrific visions in a person's mind? Such as...

and worst of all...

It is disconcerting. It really is. I'm not one of those women who thinks that life is over if I don't have a man in my life. Believe it or not...I CAN live without a man. I don't need a man to make it through this story someone decided to start for me. Do you sometimes question what the hell our parents were thinking? We did not ask for this story of life but yet here we are! Now to figure out how to write it so we aren't on our deathbed thinking "You have GOT to be kidding me!!!". So here I am figuring out the chapters and filling in the blank pages with..well not a whole lot of anything. I want to meet someone. Someone who can help me fill in those blank pages.

I'm not a fan of self help books. Actually I try to avoid them at all costs. I prefer to live in the fantasy world of Stephenie Meyer and other wonderful authors. But there is one self help that has come into my possession. The title is quite catchy. Become your own Matchmaker by Patti Stanger. Don't know who Patti is? You don't watch Bravo TV do you? Patti is the Millionaire Matchmaker. Love her show and love her. She is a no hold barred, kick you in the balls truth teller. If you don't want the truth then don't ask her for advice. She is awesome.


So here I sit...holding onto a book that could quite possibly change everything for me in the romantical department. I will read it. I will contemplate it. I will hopefully take some of what she says, apply it to my life and meet my Edward. Hey!!! It could happen.

Just gets better

I don't care what anyone thinks or says...the Twilight world is a fabulous world. Yes I know it's fantasy. Yes I know that it will one day fade way. For now...I'm enjoying every moment I can spend in Stephenie's world. Today Stephenie announced that she has written a novella that is part of the Twilight world. It isn't about the Cullens. It isn't about any of the wolfpack. It's about a newborn and her name is Bree. If you have read Eclipse then you know who she is. If you haven't read Eclipse then all I can say is that she is a newborn vampire and was changed by Victoria. Don't know who Victoria is? She is a nomad vampire who hates Bella and Edward. Don't know who Bella and Edward are? You must be living under a rock.

Anyway...Stephenie is giving us a glimpse into a newborn's life as it begins. I am so glad she chose Bree. Bree has a very small but yet significant part in Eclipse. To see how her "life" began will be really interesting. What makes this even more wonderful, as if getting a new Twilight book wasn't enough already...Jodelle Ferland, who is playing Bree in Eclipse which is premiering June 30th in case you didn't know, will be sailing with us in August.

A lot of people weren't all kinds of excited when it was announced she was sailing with us. Now that there is a book about her character? I think Jodelle has just been thrust into the limelight without even trying. I have a feeling that poor girl is going to be signing a whole lot of these:


Yes...she will be signing mine. Duh. ;)

Summer 2010

Is going to be nothing short of amazing. Yes...most of it revolves around Twilight. That goes without saying. If you know anything about me you will know that my life is all about Twilight. :)

June is the beginning of all things Twilight. If you will look at the countdown to the right you will see that Eclipse will be released June 30th. Will I be at the midnight showing? I certainly hope so. I wasn't able to go to the midnight showing of New Moon which completely bummed me out. Even if I don't go at that time I will be going that weekend. It's mandatory. Another duh statement. ;)

July is beginning to be the month where some friends from the cruise and I are going to get together in Seaside, OR and checking out all of the Twilight set locations. Yes I know...I've been before but there is no such thing as too much Twilight. This is just one of the places we will be going...

August will be the month I have been living for since June of last year. August 5th I will be leaving for Seattle to enjoy 10 days of nothing but Twilight and people who truly understand my obsession. A week and 1/2 of partying and doing nothing but enjoying myself and relaxing. :)

A fabulously wonderful Summer 2010. :)

April is such a good month

They say that a person's favorite month is the month they were born. This year is quite accurate for me. Starting on the 1st I will have 2 paid days off. A friend from Seattle is going to be in Ellensburg but driving to Yakima and taking me to lunch. She is one of my cruise friends and I love her to death! We are making tentative plans to go visit the Twilight sets down in Oregon sometime before the cruise but that is still up in the air. If we do go there will be a few of us having way too much Twilight fun. :)

April 3 - 4 I'm being treated to a pampering type of weekend in Seattle. I only know a limited amount of info on this one. I'm being flown to Seattle. Going to dinner and then to see Michael Buble. The rest is all a question. He has it all planned out and I'm just supposed to relax and have fun.

A couple of weeks later I'm heading back to Seattle for a day trip. Linda and Bobbi, the cruise organizers, have invited me to join them at a Mariners game. I'm going to drive over early enough to wander around for awhile before meeting up with them. This will be my first game since the train accident. I will do my best to hold things together and not let it affect me. I need to face my demons and finally exorsize them from my life. The memory will always be there but I don't need to allow it to control me.

All in all...April is shaping up quite nicely. :)

Sometimes you just gotta say "Why the hell not?!?!"

I received an unexpected email last week. Shocked the heck out of me to be honest. It was from a man I dated a couple of years ago. We tried chatting back around the holidays but it got ugly and I blocked him from texting or calling me. Didn't block the email which is really unlike me. When someone pisses me off that person is pretty much blocked completely. His email was not something I even thought he would ever do. He apologized for being a complete jerk to me. Okay...that took me by surprise. He has never apologized for anything from our relationship. After his, what I felt was a genuine and sincere apology, he asked me to go see Michael Buble' with him. What the what??? Seriously? I was floored. I was supposed to go see MB with him 2 years ago but our relationship ended just before the concert. After a lot of thinking about whether I should go with him I decided to take a leap of faith. He has told me that he does not expect anything from me other than to relax and enjoy myself. I know this man and when he says he is going to take care of everything...that is exactly what he means. I also know that he will be a perfect gentleman. He has his moments of being a complete and utter ass but if there is one thing I know about him it's that he is a gentleman. I know that he will treat me with respect and complete consideration. He knows that I want more out of a relationship than what he can offer. He is okay with that and said that just being friends with me is enough. I may sound completely naive but I believe him. 2 weeks I will be having a great weekend with a nice dinner and seeing Michael Buble'.

OMT!!!! It's about freaking time!!!! Now to wait 110 days. Yes...I have the countdown on my phone. Would you expect anything less? ;)
