Life After Twilight

Postby JodieO » Thu Dec 20, 2012 10:52 am

So it's all over! Was it a fun ride? It sure was a roller coaster at some times, but I'm glad we all took the ride together anyway. There's no finer ladies I"d want to take such a journey with and I hope that even though there won't be any more Twilight that you'll all continue to hang out here and entertain me have fun just like always.

The last two pages of the last thread are full of book recommendations and I highly suggest you peruse them because we'll need a new obsession before long! Or at the very least a reason to all meet up for something. Right?

This is my latest obsession. Feel free to post photos of him all you want. And if anyone ever wants to crunk North & South and swoon with me, then just say the word.

Mind you, I'm still on my men of Downton Abbey kick, too...

Who is everyone else into right now?

I get most of my audiobooks through the library. Either through audiobook CDs or through their Downloadable book website. IF there are any that you are interested in and can't find or have too many holds, let me know and I will check my online library. I can give you my info and you can download them. I also have several (20+) ripped to my itunes so I can put them in my Cloud and you can get them from there. Once you download an audiobook to your ipod it will stay on there forever until you delete it.

My favorite romance novel audiobook is Natural Born Charmer by Suasan Elizabeth Phillips. It is read by my favorite FEMALE narrator, Anna Fields aka Kate Fleming. It is an old book (1990's) but whenever I just want something light and funny with a smidge of smut, it's my go to book. I bet I read/listen to it about once a year.

sounds like my DH & son would like this one too 8-)


I couldn't get into that book, but maybe I will give it a try again.

I started reading/listening to Ready Player One but I stopped because I think my 12 yr old boy will LOVE it too so I am waiting to continue because we are getting it for him for Christmas. it will be fun to read it "together".

btw, I'm one of the few who isn't phased by the Twi movies being over. it isn't "the end" to me, I mean technically the storyline is not moving forward, yes ;) but my Twi obsession is still the same :) I won't be getting new content to swoon/discuss, but it's not "dead" to me :geek:

oh, that one sounds good too! I'm getting so many great suggestions 8-) I actually started my "list" while I was looking for books that my 12yr. old boy would like (he's very picky :roll: ) so I googled "YA books for boys" and came across a few diff't reading lists where I hope he'll be able to find something.

Hello! I took yesterday off in the hopes of wrapping all the things and getting a few last minute teacher presents (ie: Gift Cards purchased), but unfortunately my 9 yr old had other plans for me. She threw up on Tuesday night and was generally miserable yesterday morning. So my morning of gift wrapping in peace and quiet turned into a trip to the Dr. to learn that she has a bug. :roll: Then she was a gigantic PITA the rest of the day. She bitched when I stopped at Starbucks on the way home from the Dr. She did lay down and nap for an hour, but then she wanted to "help" while I wrapped. Gone was my peace and quiet, gone was my Christmas music . . . . She really did want to help, but you know that made everything take longer. :x Then since the oldest one knew I was home, she called and begged me to drop everything and pick her up at school to avoid riding the bus. . . . . End result: only 3/4 of the things are wrapped, but I'll get the rest done tonight. Hopefully after they all go to bed and without any "help".

Greetings from my igloo! We got 13 inches of snow last night, with an additional 2 or 3 this morning. Worst part is the wind...we are getting gusts of 40-50 MPH so everything is drifting everywhere. Mr G is out trying to snowblow the driveway and sidewalks and he's been out there a while. It took our neighbors well over an hour. :|
Right now I am working at the kitchen table and I have hot cocoa going on the stove for when he gets done.

This was out my dining room window this morning...it just LOOKS cold:

Warning: boring dentist story ahead, with no actual point. skip if you're in a hurry.

i went to the dentist yesterday. I needed a tiny filling at the base of one of my teeth. It has been super sensitive for the past year or so. it's not a cavity but instead, its just where the gum line has receded and exposes part of my tooth that doesn't have enough protective enamel.

SO he knows that I don't take well to anesthetic, (meaning: i always need more than the average person) so he said he is going to give me something that shoots straight into the bone in my jaw (insert cringing here :? )

LONG story longer: it takes him an HOUR just to get me SORT OF numb. He finally says, "this is a small job, can you handle 10 seconds of pain?" After an hour of him shooting about 85 needles into my jaw and gums I told him to "just get it done". It took him 8 seconds to drill the hole. He did the actually filling in about 3 minutes.

It was a very tense hour yesterday. And today my mouth is SO SORE!!!! It took a beating yesterday. He said the only other person he has ever had in his 20 years of practice, that the "bone" shot didn't work on was....my son. He said we have VERY dense bones...which normally is a great thing.

so this means no osteoporosis for amy!!!

My oldest shared this funny story with me yesterday when I asked about her day at school. She was assigned to work with this guy in class and she said he has a British accent. I asked if he moved from the UK. Her response: "You'd think so huh? But no. He's just crazy." Apparently this kid has spoken with a British accent since school started in Sept. (This is middle school, so she didn't go to school with him before Sept.) Once a teacher told him to use his real voice in class and he just keep answering with an accent. Since she was working with him, she asked yesterday, "So are you from the UK?" He said No. She asked if his parents were from the UK. No. The whole time he kept talking in a British accent. She finally just lost it and asked "Then why do you talk with an accent that sounds like you came from London?" His response: British people are cool. :roll: :roll: :roll: She said she rolled her eyes, decided he was nuts and went back to the school work. Apparently since Sept, she had never heard him speak without a British accent. :roll: This kid must drive his parents nuts. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Sounds like your daughter is smart! Or maybe HE is actually not crazy, but rather he knows that girls swoon for the British accent...he's just gearing up for high school!!

Um, no. There will be no leaving the house today, sadly! If you lived close enough, I would put on my snow gear and traipse on over for a wrapping party! ;)
