Every since the h00rs over at Twitarded announced their idea of making a pilgrimage to Forks in the Fall, I was hooked...on the idea that is. I couldn't commit at the time, because as some of you may know I'm not in the best financial situation. When my position was outsourced at work, I was thankfully able to keep my job, however my rate of pay went down. I'm still looking for a new job, so wish me luck! Anyways, I debated back and forth for quite some time, and as time went on, my desire to go and meet all of you increased significantly. Fortunately I reserved a hotel room at the Forks Motel when I first got wind of (JJ's farts) the trip, but I held off on buying my plane ticket and mentally giving myself the go ahead. I was almost ready to forget the whole idea when my Grandma & a lovely tax return came through for me. So guess what?!?!?
I'M GOING TO FORRRRRRRRKKKKKKKKKSSSSSSS!!!
I cannot express to you just how giddy I am. ES (aka, my lil' Sis) is not coming though, and I respect her reasons. She has a new & exciting position at work and needs to focus on that & other things in her life at the moment. Although I'll miss her, I've got all of you to keep me company!
The plan thus far is to fly into Seattle Thursday morning...thankfully it's only about a 2 hour flight from San Diego. I'm going to rent a car & drive to Foooorrrrks solo! Call me weird, but I'm sort of excited about driving by myself. I almost feel like it will be a spiritual experience of sorts [insert laugh here.] I can stop where I want and take pictures like a fool, I can stop for food/drinks when & where I want...heck, I can even toot in the car! :) Apparently the drive is a bit over 3 hours so I should be in Forks by mid afternoon on Thurs. Then I fly home Sunday evening.
I'm just so ridiculously excited to get there & experience "The Motherland," and more importantly, meet all of you. I think if I didn't go, I'd regret it for the rest of my life. Honestly. Moving on... I have heard rumors of karaoke on the forum that Twitarded has set up... I'm all over that! Admittedly I have never done it before, but just give me a few drinks in the company of a bunch of Twitards and it's on! I have dibs on "Ch Ch Ch CHERRY BOMB!"
Anyways I just wanted to share this with all of you. There are so many of you that I'm looking forward to meeting. I believe it's going to be an amazing time. We all have one common goal, and that's to just have fun. Oh and for some of us....we're going to GET DRUNK & GO IN SEARCH OF EDWARD....er...maybe Chief Swan, depending on the situation ;) Maybe I should bring bail $? jk.
Are you going? Share your excitement in the comments...or wish me luck in my quest to find Edward!
P.S. I do have a room with 2 Queens...I'm still unsure about whether or not I want to find a roommate. I kinda like my space, and am sort of scared about not being able to get enough sleep. I'm also kinda scared of sharing a room with someone I don't know at all. Ok there, I said it.
