Tonight is a night for puppy pictures.

It is a night for such things because I went downstairs for dinner, ran into one of the pilots and some of the first words out of his mouth were "You look like that girl from Twilight"


I face palmed when he said it. What more could I do besides cry my little eyes out?

So now I'm editing critter pics because puppies and kittehs make me happy and I forget about Twilight for a moment. I am perfectly okay with how shallow this is.
I'm feeling a bit guilty.

I have a 48 hour layover in Leipzig, which rarely happens, and my tentative plans to go to the Leipzig Zoo are falling through (my coworkers like to drink, this always screws plans for the day after). Normally, I'd be all 'screw this' and go alone, but I REALLY don't feel like it today.

A big part of me just wants to veg out for 48 hours (except for the part where I head into Leipzig to pick up absinthe for people).

I want to watch TV on my computer (OMG CHUCK HAS BEEN AWESOME LATELY!), edit Abandoned Farm Colony photos and catch up on e-mails.

And I feel so guilty about this because shouldn't I be out and about experiencing life and doing things and enjoying Germany? (even though I'm in Leipzig more then I'm in Texas and New York...)


On an unrelated note.

I have now had a grand total of 5 people tell me I "look like that girl from Twilight"


I introduce myself and the first thing people say is "you look like someone" and after that I know what they're going to say and its all downhill from there.


"very fair-skinned, with long, straight, dark brown hair and chocolate brown eyes. Her face is heart-shaped—a wide forehead with a widow's peak, large, wide-spaced eyes, prominent cheekbones, and then a thin nose and a narrow jaw with a pointed chin. Her lips are a little out of proportion, a bit too full for her jaw line. Her eyebrows are darker than her hair and more straight than they are arched. She's five foot four inches tall, slender but not at all muscular, and weighs about 115 pounds. She has stubby fingernails because she has a nervous habit of biting them."

Except for having ash blonde hair, blue eyes, no widow's peak, being 5 foot six and having FANTASTIC fingernails, it's spot on don't you think?

And just for reference: PHOTOS )

Also, I got into an arguement (again) with the military about the relative merits of Twilight. Usually this happens with the female soldiers. This time it was GUYS. MEN, I'M LOOSING FAITH IN YOUR MACHO DON'T LET ME DOWN!
I have rubbed my knees raw.

At this point most of my flist is going "mmm hmmm and what were YOU doing?"

This is where I say: I was painting the bathroom. Trufax! It's all teal and pretty now.


The entire reason for this post is that I have been laughing myself silly over This Bit of RPattz's News for the past day.

Yes Twihards, THAT is the man you are drooling over. You are welcome to him.
Twilight has hit the planes: as a movie we are playing for the troops as they go home.

Haven't they suffered enough?

Of course I found out this information whilst standing in Cabin A in front of all our passengers and apparently I could not control my reaction to the point that the first 8 rows of the plane were cracking up.

Apparently I have very strong Twilight related feelings. None of them positive.

Although I do like that one soldier called it the Dawson's Creek of Vampire Movies (very true) and when I passed him quietly confided that he had seen the movie and could I please not pass that information around as he found it embarrassing.

So, not only did the passengers get me started on a Twilight rant (and laughed at every minute of it) I carried that rant into the forward galley where I proceeded to tell my coworkers all about it (until they escaped to other galleys) and having a captive audience in the cockpit ended up unburdening myself on the subject up there.

I don't think they knew what hit them.

It's going to be a long long 2 months of Twilight related rants methinks.
