how to attract vampires

This is probably the lamest thing I've ever done. Or at least the lamest thing I've ever admitted to.

I'm really trying here, but I just can't seem to come up with anything I've done that's as lame as this. Not even buckling my belt on the side. (Yes, I did this. Because I heard that rock stars did it to prevent the buckle from scratching their guitar. And, well, I wanted people to think I was a rock star. The sad part was I don't even play guitar that much. And when I do, I sit. So imagine just how lame that side belt buckle thing was.)

Well this is definitely lamer.

Do you see that jacket up there in that photo? The one Bella is wearing? Well, here it is again:

That's right folks. I have the official Bella jacket. Now before you make too much fun of me, you will note that I'm not alone. My friend Bekah has it too. So that makes it ok.

And yes, I'd jump off a cliff if my friends jumped off a cliff.

(Here is our emo pose ... life is better when you throw in an emo pose)

I will say, though, that the jacket has this odd magic to it. Because when I was in the dressing room, trying it on, I felt an icy breath against my neck and I turned and for a split-second saw a curious-haired boy dissolve into the shadows.

Ok, that didn't happen, but it IS true that the first words out of my mouth after zipping the jacket up were,


Bekah can vouch for that one. She was there.

And I believe she also admitted to uttering a similar plea upon zipping up the jacket.

Except she looked at her husband when she said it.

And his name isn't Edward. It's Brad.

(Here we are, waiting for Edward to come get us. Apparently, I thought that Edward could fly.
Note the forest in the background

I must admit, though, that if this coat was just sitting on a rack and had no connection to TWILIGHT, I'd walk right by.

To see our coat in action:


  1. Hey everyone has their thing.Even if you dont like Twilight lol I have a HARRY POTTER SCARF its ok! Erin and rachel have one too!!! people make fun of me because of the scarf...but its ok... :-)

  2. This is so funny. Looks like you guys had fun posing. It made me want to Photoshop your Twilight Poster.

    This also reminds me of the SNL Firelight spoof.
    "Say it. Out loud."

  3. ha! i love this! although i look more lame than you do in the photos.

  4. Hilarious! Thanks for the laughs, Amanda.

  5. I must admit that I too want to buy an outfit I've seen in a movie and wear it around different places.

    Only problem is, my dream is an authentic set of Darth Vader's armor.

  6. @ Jill Williamson - I really do want to do the twilight poster thing ... we'll see.

    @ bekah thomas - I think we'll have to post starring you just to prove that you aren't awkward looking :)
