Edward Strikes A Pose

First off, I just want to say that I have no idea why this is on automatic underline. I am not very computer savvy so I have no idea how to remedy it.

Second of all, at the request of Tongue Twied, Edward agreed to also be inspired by Madonna, and strike a pose. It's a fad that he has already seen come and go, so there was no challenge for him.

Here Edward tries to get as close as he can to vogue-ing.


This next pose was inspired by MJ's Thriller video. Edward says that is one of his favorites of all time. But he is not a fan of the part where MJ turns into a werewolf looking thing.

Edward's next pose is inspired by Elvis. Edward never understood the big Elvis hype because Edward claims to be way better looking than Elvis and a much better musician. He does, however, really like the song You Ain't Nothing But A Hound Dog. He has found that song useful at times.


Then Edward pulled out a pose from the 80's and started doing the Robot. Edward is very good at this dance. I should have videoed it instead. Oh, well, too late.


Then Edward decided to bring sexy back. He was starting to get a little to into it, so I decided that striking a pose time was over.

It looked like he was going to try to take that pea coat off if I didn't stop him. I'm not sure what kind of damage that would have caused to his tiny plastic structure.
So there you have it. Edward's homage to Madonna and other various trendy artists. Hope you enjoyed.

Edward Visits Charlotte

I am blogging from Charlotte North Carolina. I was going to wait until I got home, but I'm stuck here. Long story. So I'm taking a moment to share some of what Edward did. He wasn't very impressed with Charlotte, so they're aren't very many photos. So this will be a relatively short post.

When we first got to the hotel, Edward found the complementary soap and was immediately reminded of some one. This is Edward's shout out to 17foreverlisa.

He really likes her because of how nice she is, fun she is, and she likes baseball. Edward wishes she was going with him to go see Eclipse. I hope Edward enjoys disappointment. Haha, I made a funny.

Anyway, we went to Charlotte to visit some friends. But 2 days before we went, I found out that 2 of my favorite bands, Skillet and Red, were playing near me that day and it was way to late for me to go and I had to use all my money for the trip. So I was sad. I always wanted to see a show with those two bands together, but never thought they would play together, so that made me really sad. So 2 days later we head down to Charlotte. We were in the city having lunch, and my friends get a text from another friend of theirs who says that she is in Charlotte for a day and would like to see them. Turns out she works for Skillet and there was a show that night and she put us on the guest list! We got to go for free and be in the front and walk around back stage. It was so awesome. I didn't know the bands were even going to be there. It really is a small world. So here is Edward in my purse with my ticket.

Edward enjoyed the show for the most part. Apart from the blaring noise he said the bands were pretty good.
Here is a pic of Edward with us out at lunch in the city. My sub from Jimmy John's had a sticker on the wrapper. Edward thought it portrayed a good message.

I guess Edward is an advocate of love. Who knew?
Edward also pointed out a sign in Jimmy John's. He laughed when he saw it, because it states my most commonly stated catch phrase.

That's right, your mom. I can't get through a whole conversation without cracking a your mom joke. When Edward found it he said, "Hey look, your mom." I was surprised to hear him say that. Edward has never made a your mom joke. So when I turned around to see him pointing to this, I understood. I love when Edward is silly. And yes, we were both aware of how disgusting that sign is. Edward said, "Ew."
Well, that's all from Charlotte. Just waiting to get out of here now. Hopefully it won't be too long. I have to be at work at 8 in the morning tomorrow and it is a 10 hour drive back. It's 2:00 o'clock now. I wonder if we will just stay here for the night. Who knows. Until next time chickadees and possible chickadics. <--- I stole that from Tongue Twied.

Happy Birthday To Me!

So today was my birthday, and Edward went out of his way to make it memorable for me even though I still had to work and go through the whole daily bump and grind and it was kinda cold and cloudy and rainy all day. However, Edward didn't really mind the weather.

Anyway, this is how my day started once I woke up. Edward had a flower for me and also got a custom made T shirt made just to show his appreciation for me on my special day.

"Good morning, love. Happy Birthday!"

He really is a total sweetie. I heart him, too. After this, we went to work and Edward wore his shirt all day long. I actually had a pretty crappy day at work, but Edward promised me that things would definitely get better once we got home. Then he winked. Hmmmm, so he is up to something I see. When I did get home, I changed out of my work clothes and took a moment to contemplate why the hell I work at all. Then I remembered. Ah yes, to support my Twilight habit. Then I went to grab a snack and when I got back to my room, I found this:

Edward, Alice, and Jasper all yelled "Surprise" and had presents waiting for me. I wasn't expecting a surprise party. I have never had one of those before. I was very excited and could barely contain it. That little vampire knows me so well.
Alice quickly went into party mode. She shoved Edward off the dresser and wanted to take a picture of us. So Edward and I stood next to each other while Alice played photographer.

Here is me and Edward. Alice is a bit short so she kinda took a little off the top, as you can see. And yes, I have my Mrs. P boots on under my jeans. After the photo, Alice insisted on opening the presents. At first, I felt reluctant because I didn't want to seem like the present whore who just wants to dive into the gifts, and I started to protest and suggest something else. But then, I felt very agreeable to gift opening. Yes, open the gifts, that makes me feel happy. Do birthdays cause fickle emotions? Jasper and Alice went first. Their gifts are the ones wrapped in green.
I think we are going to go for rainbow text again. E-blue A-pink J-green Me-red

"Open this one first!" Alice was very excited. I ripped open the paper and pulled out....something. I had no idea what it was.

So Jasper took the liberty to take the clear packaging off the object and demonstrate what it was.

"Edward said that you get REALLY bored at work, so I got you something that can help occupy your time. I got you a mini slinky because, for one, they are fun. And two, Edward also said that you were very easily amused."
"Aww, that's sweet. Thank you guys." I could feel nothing but love from this gesture. As you can see, Edward looks to be very intrigued with the slinky. Jasper offered it to him and within seconds, Edward had it stuck on his head.
But it didn't take him too long to regain control over the toy.

Then Jasper was annoyed with Edward's antics and took the slinky away and put it behind himself, and didn't let Edward touch it again for the rest of the night. Then we moved on to the next gift.

I then spotted my own opportunity to have some fun. As I dug my finger into the paper I quickly recoiled my hand and cried, "Ow, paper cut." Edward right away, using full on protect mode, jumped right in front of Jasper, who looked like he was about to lunge. Alice just stood there flabbergasted. Since this was a split decision on my part, she obviously didn't see it coming.


I couldn't contain my laughter. Geez, they are so sensitive. They looked at me confused while I laughed out, "I'm kidding, I'm kidding. There is no paper cut." They relaxed a bit but still weren't amused.

"That is not funny, love. You could have gotten very hurt or worse." This made me laugh more. "Hahahaha. Yes very hurt by the little five ounce vampire with the toy slinky. Hahaha!"
Then I heard a couple of small growls. Ok, so they still weren't amused. Then I felt complete remorse for what I did and no longer felt any humor for my little stunt. So I apologised. Yep, I'm convinced birthdays cause fickle emotions. What on earth else could it possibly be? The group decided to let me have a "free pass", as they call it, because it was my birthday, and we resumed with the gift opening.

"Oooooooo, pretty. What are they?"


"They're rose hair clips, silly. See?" Those are kinda cute, but at the moment they kind of look like little vampire cheerleader pom pons. I thanked Alice for the hair clips and she gave me the last one from her and Jasper.

That paper didn't last very long. I pulled out the gift and found a really cool plaid, studded bracelet. I really liked it.

I thanked Alice and Jasper gratefully for the gifts and for coming. Then it was Edward's turn. He was very excited.

"Here, love. Open the big one first." Has anyone else noticed the vast improvements on Edward's manners and attitude. I have to remember to thank Jasper for beating the crap out of Edward. Anyway, I opened the gift.

"Ooo, little E post it notes!? Those are perfect! I love it!"
"Yes, well, I know that you forget a lot of things....A LOT of things, so now you can write down the important things you need to remember and be reminded of me at the same time."
"Aw, that's sweet. But as if I could forget about you in the first place."
"You did that one day when you left for work without me."
"That's different. I didn't forget about you, I just forgot that you weren't in my purse. And I apologised for that. "
"And now there will be a post it note on your purse everyday. Just a precaution." Then Edward handed me his next gift.

Inside was a little fox key chain. Edward lifted it up to explain it's significance.

"I got you this because it resembles your dog. And I know how much you like things that look like your dog. And I wanted you to know that I am in complete support of your dog and think of him as an important part of the family. I'm totally Team Derek." This just about brought me to tears. Edward acknowledging that Derek is a dog, not a werewolf, and an important part of the family is a big thing for him. Knowing that he has put all of that behind him is such a relief. "But he still smells." Well, I guess some things won't change, but I can deal with this. Then Edward gave me the last gift.


I opened it and gasped. What I saw made me very happy.


In that little clear box is a whole bunch of belly button rings. Edward ordered all the items on my wish list from piercedfish.com! The three vampires held them up for display.

"Edward, those are perfect. How did you know....Oh right. Stupid question." Edward gave a knowing laugh. The rest of the night was really fun. We talked and laughed, and Jasper refused to let Edward play with the slinky, or let me touch anything else paper. Alice did my hair and Edward was organizing naval rings. Speaking of pretty dangly naval rings, I gotta work out. Looks like Edward also got me an obligation. Well, I guess he just wants to bring out the best in me. After Alice and Jasper left, I thanked Edward for everything he did. "Oh, it was nothing. Anything for you, love." I then grabbed the little E post its and wrote Edward my own version of a thank you note letting him know that I appreciate him, too.

He was very moved by my note. "I will cherish it forever. Happy Birthday, love."
"Thank you, Edward."
"Oh, by the way, before I forget, while you were getting a snack earlier, Jasper and I were ruff-housing and we knocked a hole in the wall, cracked a window, ripped some carpet, and broke a mirror."
Facepalm.

Edward Wants You.......

To go see Eclipse with him!


"Come on, you know you want to go with me."

Hey guys. Edward is looking for hot dates to go with him to the midnight showing of Eclipse. Keep dreaming Edward.

In all seriousness, Dangrdafne and I are looking to put together a twihard gathering for the midnight release of Eclipse. We are looking for twihards in eastern Pennsylvania and/or western New Jersey. Primarily the Lehigh Valley area, Bucks county area, Phillipsburg, NJ area, possibly Hunterdon county NJ, or any other area surrounding said places. Or if you a are a bit further than that and want to come too, by all means we won't stop you. If you want to come down from New York, then bring it! Drive up from Delaware? Knock yourself out. Fly in from the mid west? I'll give ya a cookie!! Basically, come one, come all, and Let's Do This!!

At this time we do not have a specific city or theater to meet. We want to figure out where most of you are and then pick the most convenient venue for everyone. We might not be able to accommodate every one's travel needs but I'm pretty sure we can come close.

So if you are interested in this fun filled festivity, you can let me know in the comments, email me at livingwithedward@yahoo.com, or contact Dangredafne here. Just tell us who you are, where you are located and how far you are willing to drive, fly, swim, or run at vampiric speed.

And any of you with your own blogs can help us out by spreading the word. I only have 17 followers who read this, so if you could just put a link to this post in one of your up coming posts, that would be great. Thanks in advance!! Edward really appreciates it!


Tickets will probably go on presale next month, so get back to us soon so that they aren't sold out before we can figure out our location.

Hope to see you all there!!!

Don't Mess With Edward!

Edward's hoodie experiment seemed to prove well, so he has been wearing it every where outside of the house. He has also been using all this time to formulate a plan to be rid of his stalker for good. Well today was finally the day to execute said plan! Edward was very excited and went right into predator mode while setting up his trap. He waited until the sun was about to go down, donned his hoodie to keep in disguise and we went on a little trip to Edward's chosen, secluded location.

Edward's first preparation was to make a decoy that he could use to lure the stalker while he was off hiding in the hoodie. So Edward put his artistic skills to good use and created this:

That is Edward's decoy, or as I refer to it, mini FSE. However, mini FSE is still a little to small to be FS. It's a pretty good likeness otherwise, complete with it's own crooked smile, custom pea coat, and lavishly quaffed bouffant. Anyway, Edward finds a good place to prop the decoy. Edward's predator mode can be a bit intimidating. The whole time he was doing this, you could here the little snarls and excited growls coming from him. If it wasn't quite so daunting, it would be laughable.

Then Edward set up the trap. Edward is pretty old school, so he didn't go for anything elaborate. When I asked Edward if he really thought that it was the best method to use he replied, "It worked for Bugs Bunny..........mmmmm, bunny. Remind me to go hunting after this." No problem Edward.


When Edward had everything set up he hid behind a rock and waited..........and waited.....


........and waited..........................waited some more...................kept waiting.........


..................He was still waiting...................................Edward is very patient.............

............and waited........until many hours later someone decided to show up.


The decoy actually worked! The stalker went right up to it with no reservations or suspicion. Edward wasted no time and pulled at the shoe lace and had the stalker imprisoned in seconds. As you can see he is quite pleased with himself.


No longer needing to hide Edward removed the hoodie to finish the rest of his plan. While the stalker lay trapped in the box, Edward ran around gathering twigs and broken leaves and started piling them on a rock.

Once the pyre was complete, Edward went to retrieve the stalker from the box. He brought it over to the pile of sticks and gave him his own version of last rites. "You will never stalk anyone ever again. I will make sure that no one has to go through what I did. I will never wear a hoodie again either...............unless I want to, then it's ok. But I will never be forced again......unless the sun is out and I need to cover up, but that is a completely different circumstance. But never to conceal my identity........unless there happens to be someone I don't want to talk to, then the hoodie could be useful."

GET ON WITH IT EDWARD!! "Oh, yes. Sorry." And with that, Edward shoved the stalker into the stack of twigs and prepared for the "big event" as he called it.

"Alright love, light 'er up!" That was my cue to begin the last phase of Edward's plan. I was glad that I got to light the fire. It made me feel like I was helping to protect Edward and let him know that I was always there for him when he needed me. I was also glad because I was afraid Edward might get carried away and accidentally melt himself.

The fire burned and burned while Edward jumped up and down and shouted "Victory is mine! Victory is mine!" I have a feeling that Edward has been watching too many cartoons.
Not much remained of the stalker after the fire. Just one small little piece. Edward fished it out of the pile of ashes and decided to keep it as a memento of his efforts. He also wanted to keep it as a warning for others who may harbor cruel intentions toward him.


Here he his is holding the remains up in warning, proving that you don't mess with Edward!!
