As some of you know, last March I took a good look at myself and decided I didn't really like what I saw. Physically, I mean. So, long story short, I began walking in the mornings. I've kept this up for almost eight months now, and when I look in the mirror now, I'm much happier at what I see reflected.
But that isn't what this post is about...
You may or may not be aware that I live in a pretty small town. I mean, like 500 people in the town small. Which is A LOT smaller than Forks, by the way.
Anyhoo, I've been going out and walking around the town in the mornings. Occasionally, I'll run into friends who are also out walking or jogging. This post is about a couple of them...and what they saw.
Now, when I go out to walk at 6:00-ish in the morning, it. is. dark. But I'm ok with that. I'm familiar with the streets, and the people on them. But the other day, something happened to make me question walking.
In the dark.
Two friends of mine (I'll go with the term friends because we have kids the same age and are at the same activities together a lot...you know, forced friendship) go jogging together in the mornings. BTW, I do not jog. Chicks with big tits shouldn't jog. It's painful, both to watch and to do. But I digress...
I would trust both of these ladies to always tell the truth. They are not flighty or flakey. They are the kind of women that, when they tell you something, you believe it...until now.
They. Saw. A. Ghost.
I don't think it was this one though.
Now, I read a lot of books with supernatural stuff in them. Vampires. Werewolves. Fairies. Witches. Goblins. Giants. Dragons. Shapeshifters. There are more, but I'm not going to take the time to list them all.
[Side note...for some reason listing all of these made me think of this line: "Oh, he's very popular Ed. The sportos, the motorheads, geeks, sluts, bloods, wastoids, dweebies, dickheads - they all adore him. They think he's a righteous dude. " Ahhh...gotta love Ferris Bueller's Day Off!]
Why am I having trouble believing in a ghost? I don't know. Perhaps it's because all those things listed above are in books...not real life.
So, what did I do?
I went ghost hunting, that's what! Yes, I braved the dark and scary street. All by myself. In the dark. And I saw...
But I gotta be honest with you. Before I turned down the street, I took a deep breath and pulled out my ear buds so I could hear any mysterious ghosty sounds. Then I took off walking.
And I promise you this, if someone had snuck up behind me and yelled "boo," I would have simultaneously shit my pants and judo chopped them in the head.
Yep, I'm that good.
Still my favorite pic...
PS...I did this post, pictures and all, all by myself. You should be proud of me.

Okay, it was only a letter in a magazine but it still counts right??
Well I say it counts so there.
Over here in Blighty we have a magazine called Heat. it's full of celeb goss etc. Me and Stan LOVE it and usually text each other excitedly when they put someone worth perving over as their torso of the week.
Well a couple of weeks ago I had a text from to say have you got Heat? you're going to love page whatever it was.
The dirty, filthy, fuckers had only printed a photo of the worlds most vom inducing man in the world ...Cliff Richard....photo from Stan to follow, It hurts me to just type that name *shudder*
I had to complain at the wrongness so I e mailed them
The moral of this story is after all the years I've know Stanley I still can't trust the bitch!

Er I googled kassie Cullen and up popped this...um is that you Kassie? I love, love, love your hair, now go put some clothes on, you'll catch your death!
Hey it's Kassie ie:TheonlyMrs(Kassie)Cullen and these are my questions for FFF.
1) You get to tour the set of Breaking Dawn *gasp swoon thud* so you get to tour the set and Rob will be there with you *squee* but you can't speak to him... nope not at all, but you get to bring along one other cast member with you and you can speak to them, who would you choose?
(um you obviously haven't gotten to know me that well...me? Lost for words? Unable to speak, ain't gonna happen hunny lol)
Blasphemy!!! Go beat yourself with a switch whoever drew this thing lol, actually its very well drawn and I don't care it Tay & Stew get together I will comfort Rob....
3) What is one song that when it plays it makes you automatically think of Rob? Don't cheat and choose Let Me Sign or Never Think lol
I'm supposed to think what reminds me of you Rob, not the other way round, don't mention the pony club or the private annexe off the attic....of the damned ok...shh
Yes Stan if you have thought "Hello, those pics look familiar, I have stolen them from you cos they're lush (except the Tay one hehe)
4) Your collection of Robp0rn goes up in smoke and you are only allowed to replace it with one photo shoot, which one would you choose?
5) You can take a tumble in the sheets with Rob, Twilight Edward, Fifty, Wide Awake Edward, or choose your own ff Edward. Pick one and please feel free to be explicit if you'd like ;)
Hooo boy yep yep...
Red seems appropriate...
Eeep, all my dreams come true
I hope I didn't do any repeats :)
Kassie you did great girl and I really enjoyed doing this; can't wait to see what everyone's answers are...think I can guess a couple of Lisa's hehe

Here is the song "Chop Suey" by System of a Down, can't put original video in because Sony are tossers!! (note to Sony, I have tourettes and therefore cannot be responsible for what I say-Thank you...wankers) Seee....
Right the drama started when I took my car in for MOT last week (we discussed this in the group and Lacey said she felt redneck lol) You're so NOT a redneck Lace!!!
This is what came up when I googled redneck girl....looks like a normal night up town!
Anyway I tool car in to mate's garage and came back to be informed it needed fookin shed loads of work doing on it! I was gutted, me poor little car Nobby was a wreck. But they could rebuild him, make him better than ever! Hope was abounding!!!
Nah not really, he still looks the same but runs better and stops properly. Still don't know how much it is gonna cost cos me mate ain't sorted out a price for me sigh....not looking forward to that bit I can tell you!
So I still had to go get my tracking done (tracking aligns the wheels correctly, in case anyone didn't know) and get a new rear tyre. £86!!!!! Can you believe it, bloody cost...rediculous
Now if the guys in there had looked like this, I'd have bought more tyres than I needed...however they didn't although one young man (ooo I say young man) was rather tasty, he liked the music on in my car (it was Greenday's Last of the American Girls), he liked my skull keyring and my vampire teeth and lips keyring, he chatted, smiled, generally really nice...
Then he says can I take your postcode (a lot of shops do this now USA friends, post code is zip code) so I tells him, then he says house number, so I tells him then he says "Ooohhh I live round the corner from you its number so and so Hilton Road" So I says "oh right, ok." He then says "I know your name now...." so I looked at him and he said "That came out a bit stalkery" PMSL I said um yeah. He looked so sheepish, bless him but he did say "I'll keep an eye out for you". LOL does a old ho's heart good not to mention the ego lmhao.
and here is a video from the band Madness that were big here in the 80's, this is where I got the title for the post from lol and just so we don't forget why we're all here and why we love silver volvo's...
Right off to do the FFF now, just a filler seeing as I haven't posted in ages!

Annnnnnd on with the post:
I may not post a great deal, but I really want you girls to know that I think of you each and every day.
So, I've compiled a list of things from my daily life that remind me of one or more of you...
When I find hair in the shower drain. Just...ew.
Folding clothes...and not ironing them.
Holes in my underwear.
Jello (with or without ice cream)
My SIL has declared that she doesn't like the word "sucks." Instead, they use the word "nibbles." As in, "it really nibbles when I have to get up at the ass crack of dawn." It's quite amusing to me, in a way they can't possibly understand.
When I see an awesome cake...or make one myself...I'm thinking of you.
The merest mention of Gluten. (And I still don't know wtf it is for sure!)
Black boots..mine or anyone elses.
The numbers 17 and 50.
Joan Jett, Brett Michaels, Beyonce, Ke$ha...there are several others, but I think I'll save that for a future post.
The sound of a cash register. Ka-Ching!!
The word "debil."
Drinking boxed wine...and the headache I get afterward.
That's not all, not by a long shot. But that's what I came up with in the last five minutes or so.
*sigh* I love you girls.

By RoseArcadia and borrowed from the MoTU Tribute Site
Goooooood morning Hobags! Friday again, where do the weeks go??
I'd like to thank everyone for the lovely comments they made on our anniversary, it was lovely reading them all and I'm thrilled that we've all found each other :o).
Anyway, I won't hang around pontificating; I'm hoping to get a new chapter of Elusively Yours up in the next day or so, so I need to get writing to finish it off. For anyone who missed my teaser on Twitter last night, I'll post it again here in the name of shameless pimpage ;o)
“Broken? What do you mean broken?”
She looked guilty, as though she was internally kicking herself for saying too much.
“I’m sorry, Bella, I can’t,” she said, shaking her head. “If Edward hasn’t told you, I don’t think I can. It wouldn’t be fair.”
I shrugged as I stood and gathered our empty cups from the coffee table.
“Well, whatever. It was only a kiss, and like you say, it’s going to be irrelevant as soon as he finds out about me and Jake anyway.” Alice jumped up and skipped after me as I trailed back to the kitchen to dump the cups in the sink.
“Bella,” she said, pausing until I turned to face her and she knew she had my full attention. “I’m not going to tell him.” She looked a little excited, and I was starting to think that she had a hidden sadistic streak.
“You’re going to make me do it myself,” I stated flatly, sure that I’d caught the meaning behind her words.
“Of course not!” she exclaimed, before walking right up to me and placing her hands on my upper arms. She bent forward and stage whispered. “I have a much better plan…we don’t tell him!”
Ok, let's get on with this! Last week RobzSinger chose the lovely doc, Twilight Cupcake of Twilight, Travel, and Treats as the winner. She's kindly taken a few moments out of her MoTU obsession to come up with some questions for us! Over to TC....
Congrats to Edbrella on the Anniversary! I am thrilled to be chosen by RobzSinger as last week's FFF champion.
Let's get to it. Forgive me if there are repeats...
1) What is the most erotic/sexiest outfit you have? Describe in details people.
4) If you were only allowed to have sex in one position what position would you choose?
I've been busy quizzing the world about MotU so please come check it out. Tomorrow's the last day for entries.
Also make sure to see the MotU Tribute site I've worked on with Hoot in honour of the MotU anniversary. Okay pimping done - TC out!
Thanks TC, bloody hell, that was a linktastic edition of the FFF!
Ok, get answering ladies!

It's Edbrellas anniversary wooooooooooohooooooooooooooo.
This is my celebration post of all my fave Twi-Edbrella stuff over the past 12 months....
My best bits....and i'm not talking about my rack!
Looking through the old posts it seems the most popular ones have been the games, such as FFF and the CFF. Here's where that all started Here
I'd have to say that all those old posts where we just went off on one in the comments have definately been my faves :) You Ho's never fail to make me smile, or more often than not do my attractive snorting/snotty laughter all over my laptop.
Of course over time I've made some really good friends. I mean REALLY good friends. The sort I can open my heart to and they still actually like me! Distance means nothing really. It would be lovely to be able to meet up more often, or at all in the case of my overseas besties, but just knowing that they're there for me is enough. *wipes a tear away* No doubt it's Twilight that shoved us all in a darkened room together and made us confess our sins of lusting over Edward and co. Thank fuckery for Twilight I say!
(Note from Stan ~ I reckon the dark-haired woman left of centre must be a relation - she's got my double chin!!)
I also fell a little bit in love with Jasper in Eclipse *blush*
Then there's Rob. No words needed, just enjoy
Hellooooooooooooooooooooo still with me ? Focus Ho's!!!!
I'm going to end this by saying a huge thank you to everyone who takes the time and and makes the effort to read and comment on any of the posts here.
I love you all and thank you for being along for the ride
Yep, September 15th is officially Edbrella's birthday. Is it really only a year?! I say that because the friends I've made along the way make me feel as though I've known them forever.
It's hard to believe now that I started this on my own. Me and Mary actually had our own little joint venture Twilight blog elsewhere, but eventually I got The Wease on board blogging with me after she did some holiday blog-sitting for me, and then persauded Mary to join us and we left our other little blog empty to move in here together.
Next thing, Nibbles appeared in our blogosphere creating all kinds of mayhem with her manic comments. I knew we had to have her, so I enticed her in. Finally we met fellow Brit Becky, and although she doesn't blog diectly, she does join in if we have any discussions on anything - if we can get her nose out of the thirty or so fanfics she reads a week.
Soooo, my favourite, and now somewhat legendary, Edbrella post I think, is the New Moon trailer, featuring Chimpsten. Refresh your memories here.
This year for me has been special, not least because of a special birthday...

Ok, let's hand it over..
First off, I have to say thank you for letting me do FFF! I was really excited to be the "chosen one". Now I know how Rob feels. :)
Okay, I'm sending 7 but I'm an overachiever like that;) lol.
1) Rob. You. His Guitar. A small room with dim lighting (that makes your ass look fabulous by the way) and a bed. He asks you if you have any requests. What's the one song you want Roh-bear to play for you? After you're done using the bed of course.
2) If you had the time, resources, and energy, what is one thing you'd like to learn how to do?
3) What is your porn name? This is either your middle name and the street you grew up on or your first pet's name and a street you lived on...
Mine are Katherine Stone Harbor and Dusty Fairfield. Raawwr.
Who's your co-star? What scene would you like to act out?
4) I wrote a post about TWILIGHTisms, ya know the quotes from the movie that you use on a regular basis in everyday life. What's the one phrase that you say the most often in RL and then giggle to yourself. Please give the context.
5) If Rob could have been in any movie role, from the past to present day, what would movie part would you have liked to see him play?
Hmm, sounds like a good excuse to have a look at this for consideration ;o)
6) I would probably blow a good chunk of money (sorry about that college fund kids) to get my hands on the behind the scenes footage of a certan Details photo shoot. If the powers that be opened up the ROB vault what do you wish you had an all access pass to?
7) Rob and Kristen break up!! *GASP* I know, I know that will sooooo never happen *snort*. What starlet do you think Rob will fall in love with next? Ya know, since I'm not available.

Back to normal here today hobags, Dave's just gone out to the office. Yesterday was nice, although everything was tinged for one reason or another. I had my hair cut and coloured so am back to being dark again, the last colour had faded so much I was almost blonde. This was good until the hairdresser nicked one of the tiny skin tags on my neck with her clippers. You'd have sworn the damn thing was connected to an artery the amount of bleeding it did.
She sent me out with a piece of tissue stuck to my neck like an eejit. I hadn't realised how much it was bleeding until I was driving home. She obviously did because she rang home shortly after to make sure I was ok! Good job I wasn't going home to a vampire is all I can say.
After that Dave took me out for lunch. It was a bit surreal. We were able to do this because our youngest has just started going to nursery for full days. Of course, we've done evenings out just the two of us, just nothing during the day in the past six and a half years or so.
Apparently most people in our age group are in the same situation. This combined with the fact that I'd had my hair done so had no grey showing, meant that I was feeling very young when I scanned the restaurant at our fellow diners.
I miss our regular Thursday fun and games with Community FanFic, so how about a little Community Fuck, Marry, Abandon in a desolate place (I'm in a good mood today, I really don't want to see anybody getting hurt). Ok, I'll start, next person answers and then sets their own for the next person. It doesn't have to be Twilight related, but I'll start it that way:
Catherine Hardwicke, Chris Weitz, David Slade ;o)

Hi Stan! What's that you say...you wanna play a game? Well ok...
1) What sort fanfic Edward would you most like to read about? (You have to make your own Edward up, not steal one from a fanfic you're reading!!)
Mmmm wide awake Edward was fabbo!
2) Your favourite Twi-guy is burnt out and asks for a fun day out to take his mind off things. Who do you pick, where do you go and what do you do?
I say let's all dress up as monkey's guys....guys?
3) If money were no object what would you get your other half as a present?
Like this but bigger perhaps....
4) What's your best girly friend memory?
Everything I learned, I learned from my drunk ass friends...s'true!
5) Your local zoo is having to re home it's animals. They will build the housing needed for you. What animal do you choose and why?
