I went on another photo safari (this seems to be a new Saturday morning tradition), this time at Hobby Lobby, a terrifyingly huge artsy-craftsy emporium. (The reason the photo safaris happen on Twitter is because you can take a picture on your phone and email it straight to TwitPic from there, which then appears automatically on your Twitter feed.) I mean, I spent fifteen minutes in that thing and I am ready to craft THE SHIT out of something. You take TLE there, he'll think he's died (again) and gone to heaven. Note on photos: we did not even get into any of the vertical aisles at the store. This is simply the shallow end of the pool.

@cleolinda omg, this package is epic. (Mostly it pertains to TLB.)
Hee, and exactly a month from my birthday, too. And one of the items was, coincidentally, something I desperately needed. Thanks, wombatgirl !
As a side note, I must issue a correction regarding...
@cleolinda I find it sad that the immediate source of my disgust is, "Did you even READ the books?"
... as I was reminded by several people that Edward's favorite food is mountain lion. So I concede the pun.
@cleolinda RT @ebertchicago: We have never seen Juliette Binoche like this before. Never. http://j.mp/888B8
@cleolinda RT @moijojojo @cleolinda Could you pimp #thefandomgivesback auction http://bit.ly/vfFgs, to benefit @alexslemonade?
Also: alliancesjr's continuing attempts to read Twilight for himself. I think it's taken him a month to get to chapter four. Now you know why I tried to take that bullet for you guys.
And then, the dogs this morning:
@cleolinda http://twitpic.com/pqv1h - Sam is not impressed
@cleolinda http://twitpic.com/pqv91 - Look, I don't know, she crazy
Back to work. Apparently the best part of the movie (minus John Cusack's best line) is online completely legally. Enjoy.
