We had a nice chat about the world, the quilts he had seen in him many years on earth, and a bit about that Trampire Kristen Stewart. Then he set about to make me dinner. He made a lovely pasta with garlic sauce. Garlic and vampires, you say? Don't worry, I brushed my teeth thoroughly before we made out.
Then he got right to work doing the dishes. "Let me help," I exclaimed, but he insisted I sit and relax. "You give me everything just by breathing," he said. So I put my feet up and let him go about his work.
After dinner, it was the Twilight hour, so we took a romantic walk in the park. I know, as a vampire, he doesn't get cold, but I still offered him my latest cowl, the Big Herringbone Cowl by Purl Bee, knit in Madelinetosh chunky wool in Cove. He loved the intricate herringbone pattern and said the soft texture of the wool was even soft to his stony skin.
All too soon he had to go. But luckily, I had a date already planned with him for Friday night. It is a tradition for the girls at work to go and see each instalment of the Twilight movie on opening night. It did not disappoint! Loved it, though sad for it coming to an end.
On the way home, I spied someone peering at me through the window of my office.....
(Gotta love the sense of humor of my staff :)
Are you a Twihard? Did you see the movie?? What did you think? Discuss.
p.s. as someone will invariably ask....yes, I do own a life-sized cardboard Edward. I bought it in a small town in Minnesota several years ago, and it was worth every penny. It led to an interesting encounter with the Canada/USA border control on our return....
"What did you buy from the USA to bring back into Canada?"
" A 2-4 of beer, and a life sized Edward."
They then proceeded to search our vehicle. :P
