No More Spoilers and a Double Meme

So here we are, checking out the blogs and wait a minute, whats this? We were tagged by Latchkey Wife for the Twilight Blog Meme! Blushing. Let's do it! SP and SW provide the answers:

1) What is the craziest/most stupid thing you've ever done (that you would be willing to share!)?
SW: There are a lot of crazy/stupid things I've done that I would not be willing to share (SP has witnessed some of them first hand). I, in fact, do stupid things all the time. But something crazy that I'd be willing to share...once while intoxicated, Mr.W's boss made a pass at me in front of Mr.W. So I slapped him and called him out in front of all his subordinates (Mr. W is in the military). Which might not sound so crazy, but in a military structure, when some little girlfriend slaps her boyfriend's boss and calls him a prick to his face in a loud voice, it silences the room. And then I got a round of applause.

SP: Ooh! Good one SW! I am a sad, boring person who really does nothing "crazy." I have to be pretty laid back because Mr. Swan is the one who gets into all sorts of shenanigans. So I'll have to rely on my ability to embarrass the shit out of myself. Which luckily, I am pretty good at most of the time. Like when SW and I went to a nice little cookie swap with a group of ladies. We didn't really know anyone (or each other), but we were attempting to mingle like good little military wives do. We're sitting in the living room, when a certain young lady begins talking about her plans for Christmas leave. She mentions that they're going to visit the in-laws and then looked at me and asked, "What are you doing?" Being the polite person that I am, I reciprocate with my own holiday plans. The girl looks at me with the weirdest face and says "I wasn't talking to YOU." It was then that we noticed she had a GOOGLY EYE. SW and I just looked at each other in shock and tried not to laugh. I was so embarrassed because of the whole situation, and SW and I later bonded over the moment. Yes, we are the kind of people who are heartless bitches and make fun of people behind their backs. To this day we still call her Googly Eyes...

So there you have it. I'm officially lame.

2) One my personal favorite games: Fuck, Marry, Kill. With the Twilight cast.

SW: Fuck: Jasper, Marry: Edward, Kill: Caius. Just to note, once I married Edward, I'd stop fucking Jasper. Promise. And Caius is just a prick. An evil prick. It was still hard to chose between him and Jessica Stanely though. And I figured that killing Jacob was just too easy. Plus, FC over at WeBitePrettyHard already took care of him for me.

SP: Well, I'll be a good friend and only Fuck: Edward and Marry: Jasper. I'll let SW fuck my hubby once if I can do hers once too. ;) (I have a thing for Jasper's only grown worse since I started reading fanfic!) And I definitely need to kill Mike. Ugh!! He is such a dumb ass! I'll be happy to get rid of him. [Note: If for some reason Mr. White or Mr. Swan are reading this, I meant the husband sharing part ONLY in regards to Edward and Jasper. Thank you, that is all. ]

3) What is your favorite band/type of music?

SW: I have a lot of favorites, and they change on a regular basis. And I'm very eclectic. Current favorites: Dashboard Confessional, Death Cab For Cutie, Snow Patrol, The Strokes, The Radio Dept., and...Taylor Swift ( I don't care who you are, you want to sing along when that girl's songs come on the radio!).

SP: I'm an alternative rock kinda girl, though I like most kinds of music too. Of course I have to say that one of my long-time favorite bands is the All-American Rejects. Some of my other favs include The Used, Rise Against, Papa Roach, and (my newest) the Silversun Pickups.

4) What is your favorite movie besides Twilight?

SW: Since I can't just choose one, here are my top five: Pride and Prejudice (w/ Kiera Knightley), 3:10 to Yuma, The Royal Tenenbaums, Little Miss Sunshine, and Breakfast at Tiffany's.

SP: My favorite movie is also Pride and Prejudice. Ah, Mr. Darcy...he held my heart until Edward came along...

5) Do you RL life family/friends know you’re addicted to Twilight? A blogger?

SW: Well my husband knows about the blog and my obsession (he's not highly pleased about it, but he attempts to be a good sport). Most of my family knows that I like Twilight, but they have no idea about the blog, and I plan to keep that way. I swear a lot and talk about sex on this blog, all I need is for my MIL to find it. Shudder. Gag. As for friends, some of my friends are co-writers on the blog, but most of friends have no idea it exists. But I've given up on trying to hide how much I love the Twilight books/movie.

SP: Mr. Swan knows that I am passionate about Twilight (and constantly reading “my stories,” as he calls fanfic) but he doesn’t know that I blog about it! My best friends and my sisters pretty much have to bear the brunt of my obsessiveness and listen to me go on and on about all things Twilight.

6) How many hours a week do you spend doing Twi related things? You know, blogging, looking at pictures of the cast, reading fan fiction, etc.

SW: While I have been totally slacking on blog posts, I make time daily to check out fanfic and other people's blogs. Perhaps: 15-20 hours a week? Which is my low number. And that is just sad. Like, SP, I also need an IPhone.

SP: Well, I would say now that I’m working again (I’m a teacher) and also working on my masters, that I am only able to spend around 15 hours a week on my Twi-related activities. If only we had internet at work….MUST. GET. iPHONE!

7) Any random fact you might want to share. Big or small, it doesn't matter.

SW: For the past three years, I have asked for a copy of Mastering the Art of French Cooking for Christmas, and no one will get it for me.

SP: I am a total perfectionist, and I have a complex system for my calendar. Everything is color coded, and I have stickers to mark certain events. Oh and I have to have giant boxes to write in (lined of course, so that my writing isn't crooked). So, yeah....

PS, from SW: I also have my closet color coordinated. I know that SP does too.
