Give me this any day.

I am a loyal person. Loyal friend, loyal pet owner, loyal fan. So when New Moon came out on Friday and several people told me that I might find myself leaning toward Team Jacob, I laughed in their faces. Never. Though I do love dogs and CGI werewolves are rather adorable, I am solidly Team Edward. I will say that the movie version of New Moon did make me sympathize more with Jacob because as opposed to in the book, Bella was not so forthright in her purely friendly feelings for him. But let's leave Bella out of this. She's pathetic, whiny, and makes women look like creatures who bend to the every whim of men. Anyway. Some people made the transition to Team Jacob because of his brand spakin' new physique. Yes, it is impressive, but too obviously so. His body screams I-worked-out-24-hours-a-day-every-day-and-ate-too-many-protein-bars-so-I-wouldn't-lose-my-part-to-a-beefier-stud. Edward's body, on the other hand is more understated and says something more along the lines of I-work-out-pretty-regularly-and-maybe-even-did-a-light-round-of-P90X-but-also-eat-the-occasional-hamburger-and-I-can't-help-that-I'm this-pale-because-I'm-a-vampire. I like hamburgers, vampires, and normal looking muscles.

Have you ever had that feeling while watching a movie or a TV show when you become really embarrassed for one of the characters because of the awkward situation they are in? Even though it's all fake, you can't help but feel really uncomfortable for them. This happens to me a lot, and today it happened again...except this time it was not a fictional character I was embarrassed for. It was myself. I was distractedly watching TV/day dreaming and just started mentally going over moments and situations in my life. Make outs, guys I've dated, embarrassing moments, etc. When I came to some situations, I found myself literally cringing and covering myself with my blanket, as if doing so would erase that moment of ill judgement from my past. I will not specifically mention which memories I was thinking of, but some of you can probably pull from some of my outrageous moments and perhaps guess a few of the ones I might be talking about. There are several. What was I thinking? Why did I do that? How in the world did I feel that that was a good decision? Does that other person feel as awkward as I do? These were some of the questions flashing through my mind as I recounted moments from my past. I finally had to give myself a slight little slap to snap me out of my trip down memory lane. But, embarrassed as I may be about some of the things I've done, I know they make me who I am. And of course, made for good stories at the time that they occurred (and perhaps will continue making for an entertaining tale). No regrets?
