Aaah, that's better :o)
Ok, so one line in and I'm already going to go off on a tangent, I saved these untagged VF pics from the ROBsessed site and didn't change the file name when I saved them, so now whenever I upload one here it tells me that, for example, 'rpat13sharp.jpg' is loading. Now, to anybody outside the UK I'm guessing that doesn't look too sinister. Anybody over here who grew up watching 'Fun House' though would probably, like me, scared that there'd been some terrible mix-up and that this was about to pop up:
The Mullet-tastic Pat Sharpe
Thanks for letting me share that, it's been haunting me since I got these pics, hopefully that will have helped me conquer my inner Pat Sharpe demons. [Note from TwiWeasel...this guy looks JUST like my neighbor...I am not kidding.]
Anyway, Edbrella is changing a little from today. Not that much as you might have noticed from that little diversion above, but enough that I'm going to tell you about it. Now, when I first started blogging here I had lots of pent-up, frustrated, creative energy which manifested itself a bit like this:
Then I met TwiWeasel and it all went downhill *sniggers*. [Note from TwiWeasel...you ain't seen nothin' yet. Muahahaha!] In a very good way of course. I started sharing a FanFic I'd been writing with her and my other good friend Mary. They were both very kind and said that they both liked it and have been fantastic at encouraging me to carry on with it - and even put lemony bits in (they're a bit rude like that *tut*). [Note from TwiWeasel...Rude, Schmude...that lemon was awesome! And if you, dear reader, haven't read it...Go. Now. I mean it!]
Since then I really started pushing myself with my fic and sadly, although I could do with more, there are only so many hours in a day. Unfortunately that's meant that I've not had as much time to spend on here.
Now I'd also started writing a Twi blog with Mary, Twi-sted. I've been feeling bad because I've been posting there even less, any bits of bloggy inspiration I've had time for have mostly ended up here. Soooo, I put a suggestion to the girls - how about merging Edbrella with Twi-sted. They were both for it YAY! So here we are now as Twi-sted Edbrella. [Note from TwiWeasel...because we are some seriously twisted bitches. I mean that in a good way.] I'm hoping that you'll like it as much as before, in fact, you'd better, Edbrella is a bit like my baby, if they drop it and hurt it I'll be a little annoyed, I'll be honest with you. No pressure then? Muhahahahaaa!
"You posted what on the blog???"
I joke. Mary & TwiWeasel are my best bloggy buds, they crack me up all the time, so I'm sure all will be fine.
So, TwiWeasel was already here after doing a fab job [Note from TwiWeasel...Awwwww.]covering for me while I was away on my hols last week and I hope you'll welcome Mary here too. [Note from TwiWeasel...Go Mary! Go Mary! *does the running man* not really, I never did master that dance move.]
Oh, and I've changed the name a bit to Twi-sted Edbrella, partly to show the merger and partly because poor Edbrella's framework has become a bit, erm, bent lately (Mr Stan would probably argue it was always bent in another respect, anyway ;o)). I try not to let it bother me but I have to admit, I don't have such a spring in my step on rainy days anymore, more a wistful look on my face *sigh*.
So, by way of welcome, let's post a couple of celebratory pics:
TwiWeasels's fave pic
Mary's fave pic
Awww, how fab to have Twi friends who, not only do you know which are their fave pics, but you have them saved because they shared them with you!
Which has given me a thought - let's all share our faves! Email them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll put them all in a post (if you can't decide on one, two will do ;o)).
