TMI Tuesday #34-"Whaaaa???"

TMI Tuesday:

"What does that say???"-edition

Some months ago I was driving when I saw a car with a sticker that made no sense to me at first...
The reference was pretty obscure, 
I think
and did not merit an entire back window car sticker of its own. 

I'd be interested in what you think:

"I drive like a Cullen" 
(Sorry, poor quality)


It took me a looooong time to process what it meant
 I was hardly able to capture this picture.

I've read Twilight. 
Tried to like it. 
Pretending to love it 
(so I could participate when women at church and my sisters gushed about it)

But I have come to terms with it and am totally okay with saying the following:

"Twilight is laaaaaaaaaame" 
(I won't even get into how terrible I think it is for young impressionable girls to read because I think the message it teaches is damaging)

And I am all about being a fanatic...

Have you seen my phone case?

Or my Pinterest board?

Fandoms I nurture:
Doctor Who
Harry Potter
Phineas and Ferb (I know, it is Disney but deserves its own line)
Anything Disney really
The IT Crowd (that is a new one!!)
Mad Men
Etc. Etc. Etc. 

I am a book worm and a Netflix-Nerd and a DisneyDork

and a proud Twilight-despiser



  1. When I read this, I think, what an awesome sister I have. I liked the fighting scenes from Twilight, but certainly not the love sick, campy, but often pornographic, emotions running through Bella's head.

    You missed one on your list of fandom. Burn Notice...

  2. I am so glad I am not the only one who didn't really like "Twilight." I read all the books. I would read for awhile and then I would think, "Why am I spending time in my life reading this book?" Then I would pick them up and read again. It took a long time, but now I know I don't like them. Most of the time I felt like slapping her! Put me in the Disney Dork column any time!

  3. Haha! Yes, true literary junk food. And yet, no matter how much the characters and story annoyed me, I have to admit couldn't put them down. It was a love-hate relationship for me. The basic plot and the redefinition of an entire myth/legend was fascinating to me. I had a blast getting all excited about the new ones coming out, and going to the movies with friends. I totally agree that it's full of potential negative influences for all of us, and not at all a good example of healthy relationships. But then again, when has fantasy ever provided excellent relationship role models? Ask most any Disney princess...
