Secret Circle Episode 2: “Bound” or…

In anticipation of tonight’s episode…

He better not start singing, “Friday, I’m in Love”.

Buddy, Are You Wearing Eyeliner?

*Poof! Spoilers!*

Here we go with episode two, and it appears this show is starting to find it’s groove. We had more humor, some more special effects (aka magic) and more character development. My only problem still…Adam. I don’t know what the issue is fully. He’s seems very intense, has super dark eyelashes (like he’s wearing mascara and eyeliner) and has a staring problem. He’s one episode away from starting a THE CURE tribute band. I can see him serenading, FRIDAY, I’M IN LOVE to Cassie in the quad on, you know, Friday and then singing, BOYS DON’T CRY to Diana on Monday. He’s a fickle, fickle boy. I had an idea of Adam in my head when I read the books in my teenager years, in between the times I was getting my doses of teen angst in the Sweet Valley High series. This television Adam is like a Edward Cullen/Stefan Salvatore hybrid, witch edition. Isn’t two of those, enough?

My original idea of Adam was found in these books.

Don’t worry… characters on shows grow on me and perhaps Adam will someday. Hopefully, by the next episode. Now that I vented…(sorry about that!) what happened in “Bound”? This is the picture recap…

Cassie tries to light a candle. Instead she breaks Nick's window.

 

That teaches a guy to be a Peeping Tom, immediately after he has secret...umm...sex with another girl.

 

School is hard enough without having these two in your class.Obviously, starting dangerous fires in school does not actually set off the sprinkler system. #safetyfail"

 

"I will serende The Cure songs to you forever...after I sing them to Cassie first."

 

Mr. Staring Problem is going to teach Cassie some "magic". (Is that what the kids are calling it these days?)

 

Oh I get it...their forbidden love creates the energy of light. Ugh. But it makes a nifty party trick!

 
 

Making "potions" is not a good thing, young man. Also you need to hang out with nicer girls like...Cassie.

 

What did I tell you about hanging out with nice girls, Don Juan? (Plus making poor Melissa jealous is just not cool.)

 

It's all fun and games until you magically push the Student Council President to her death on the jagged rocks.

  

Luckily, bad Faye's mommy and bad Diana's daddy have a crystal to bring her back to life.

 

Oops! It also kills your grandpa!

 
 

Luckily, those powers are officially binded! That will make everything better! Right? Right? At least a little? *crickets*

What will happen tonight, dear readers? Hopefully, more Cassie and Nick scenes. (One can only hope!)

Vampire Diaries recap: The Hybrid

…or the one where I got really bored. (EC: Until the end!!!!!)

**SPOILERS**

RIP lil Roy. Your beard will be missed #stubblefan

Woods woods, walking, woods, woods, walking, woods.. etc. Then about 20 minutes of various wolf groaning. Then they all died. I didn’t care, I was so bored with this episode. It was so full of whining and “I’m going” “No you’re not.” Oh please, How many seasons and different vampire franchises does it take to get the human heroines to “Keep Away?” No one knows because it doesn’t exist.

EC: That was just a bunch of gross. Like an episode of True Blood and crying vampires. Yuck.

Just let em help, vamps, and be there for back up. It’s usually the human women saving the immortal vamp dudes asses anyway, so just quit your over protectaive machismo BS.

EC: Not counting Elena. The only way that she can save anybody is her constant attempts at sacrificing herself. She is rather a liability, isn’t she? At least being constantly in danger, gives Elena something to do except for crying in a corner. Where’s our kick ass heroine?” Yeah, Bonnie’s been MIA so far.  

*Steps down from soap box*

Anywho, Matt is sad and it hurts too much when Jeremy mentions his dead sister. Oh wah. Just help holy cow is that whiny? Mmmphm! Jeremy.

EC: HELLLOOOO there, Jeremy! Once Bonnie gets back we have a 50/50 chance that Jeremy is going to get ‘Whiny’ again. His cuteness quotient could be going down accordingly. It’s simple mathematics. 

NICE!

Carol Lockwood and the Sheriff. Really, ladies? There are vampires and wolves in your town. Just get used to it and go play bunko. Stop shooting Caroline!

EC: That was a shocker when the Mayor saw her boy, get super hairy. Does she need to start supplying him with flea collars and chew toys? Poor Caroline! It gets worse. See below!

Where did Alaric’s cutie bed head scruffy ‘do go? It morphed into hipster. Not approved.

EC: I like the hipster. Alaric’s like Elena’s deadbeat, drunk surrogate dad. What a cute family. I really liked his “Supernatural Adventure Pack”. Everything you need for a leasurely walk in the woods , you know, just in case you run into a hairy, snarling beast. Or that kid from 7th Heaven.

Well, Stefan’s Ripper side chooses uber low v-necks once again. I’m not as opposed since he’s killing people and it’s entertaining. Maybe his tee will become as iconic and endearing as Eric Northman’s black tank top. No?

EC: Oh joy. Super low and tight girl shirt. He must be shopping at EXPRESS or THE LIMITED again. Klaus thinks it’s fetching.

I missed having the women in this episode. True, most of them are dead or shot or whatever, but it was just Elena. In improper hiking gear. Also, did anyone else think this, “She’s walking in wet shorts after being tossed in the lake? Ouch, hello chaffing!” ‘Cuz that happened to me on our Hawaiian honeymoon when we went kayaking, then hiking to (and back from) a waterfall. Och aye, me thighs! Wet board shorts are brutal I tell you. I see why they wear the grass skirts. I was in a pareau for the rest of the trip. #digressing

EC: Did you notice Ian…I mean…Damon…staring at Nina’s…I mean Elena’s chest in the pond scene? His eye’s were doing that crazy wide eye look where you can see all of the whites. It was very distracting. It’s like he’s trying to hypnotize you through the television screen. To recycle bottles. Or to install solar panels. 

Damon better carry me. I neglected to pop by REI for proper outdoor full moon werewolf protection gear. Yes, they have a section for that.

So Stefan got bit by Roy the wolf boy and needs Klaus to heal him. He was telling Klaus, “… do with me what you wish, I failed you” when my DVR cut off. I didn’t see the end. I have to admit, I didn’t mind. This epi was a snoozer.

EC: Ahh yes! The end! This is where it gets good! Jeremy is getting begged by ghost Vicki to “save her”, but… Anna appears warning him not to trust Vicki. Never trust Vicki, Jeremy, she’ll just try to tempt you with ghostly drugs and you’ll be forced to hang out with Matt more.

THEN… Caroline was kidnapped be HRG from Heroes!!! Aaaaahhhh!!!! I really liked Heroes, Season one. Let’s not talk about later seasons of Heroes. sigh. Who is her….FATHER!!!! Poor Caroline’s day is getting worse by the minute!

What will happen next week? Will Bonnie return in awesome footwear? How will have the super glossed lips now that Jenna is dead? Well, besides Klaus. *wink*

The Secret Circle…Next Vampire Diaries?

Posted in Secret Circle, Uncategorized, Vampire Diaries with tags , on September 22, 2011 by talksupe
posted by EC Stacey

THE VERDICT IS…MAYBE? PERHAPS? COULD HAPPEN?

I hope Marnie fromTrue Blood isn't running this group

Tonight is the second episode of the Secret Circle. For this reason, we feel that you need our seal of approval of this new show. (Actually, you don’t. But we do have a inflated sense of self and feel that our opinions matter. Just humor us for a bit.) So what did we think? Here’s the breakdown…

1. Like the first episode (the entire season one) of Vampire Diaries, Secret Circle needs to find it’s groove:

It’s always hard to determine the worth of the first episode of a new show by the very first episode. There are always a few exceptions, like Zooey Deschanel’s The New Girl and Will Arnett’s Up All Night. The first episode’s of those two were hilarious and you should definitely check them both out. But, usually except if the show is horrible, it takes a couple episodes. Like with last Thursday’s Secret Circle, the episode was setting up characters and the beginnings of the plot. While there were some cool things going on it was still a bit dry. Hopefully, the next episode will bring in some lighthearted fun to the angst. It took Vampire Diaries the whole first season to go from pretty good to fantastic. Kevin Williamson and Company must have figured out the formula, so hopefully the transition will go quicker. 

Faye: "You have potential, Cassie." Cassie: "Potential to be in a series that can have be critically acclaimed AND actually have viewers?"

2. It’s all about the characters:

The Girls:

All I need is to get Lux's snark into this character

I have always liked the actress who plays Cassie, Britt Robertson. (Of course, the character was a red head in the books, but I will forgive that for now.) She was great on the show Life Unexpected, full of snark and toughness. You can only see glimmers of this in the character of Cassie. Of course, these are two different characters. I just would love to see a female character that is a strong role model for young women. (Even Vamp Di’s Elena isn’t at that point yet.) Let’s see what happens next episode.

I need to get back to Salem! I need to find Patch and Kayla...oh...wrong show.

Look it’s Stephenie from Days of Our Lives! Actually, it’s head witch Diana. It will be interesting to see if she can bring something extra to the character who even in the book was a virtuous character. Which means…yawn.

This is my bad girl look. It's the look I give the whole episode.

The bad girl is Faye. Yeah…umm…let’s get this character to be more well rounded and well dressed.

Got nothing.

There is another girl. I don’t think they really said anything about her, except that she’s Faye’s sidekick.

The Boys:

Will you love me if I have Edward Cullen hair?

Adam is Cassie’s star crossed love/Diana’s boyfriend. It’s like they took Stefan and Edward Cullen (for you Twilight fans) rolled them up, made them human and a wet blanket. The kid’s all squinty smouldering  stares, fishy kissy lips and creepy protective girly manliness over Cassie. I need this character to be attractive likeable and he’s not there yet. Either he will grow on me (like a fungus) or I need one of those soap opera type recasts. You know the ones, one episode the actor is there then magically a pretty actor is in the next episode in that part.

Hey Adam...don't you have a girlfriend?

I also need to point out that while I think he’s supposed to be a good guy, Adam’s drunk dad is a bit too interested in Cassie. All intense looks and “I loved your Mom. You look like her.” It’s as if he wants Adam to date Cassie to fill in for his lost love affair or to distract him for breaking the law and dating her himself. Actually, that could be interesting.

This is a romantic lead I could like

Nick. Oh Nick. You had me at Peeping Tom. Now that kid can be the bad boy romantic lead. Not the boarder-line cheater romantic lead. (See above). Plus, he has humor potential.  

The Villians:

Creepy and well dressed! It's like a hetero episode of Queer as Folk.

Diana’s Dad is played by Gale Harold from Queer as Folk! He plays fantastic bad guys. Also, well dressed gay men. Now this is what I like to see in a show. His character already has killed Cassie’s mom and almost murdered Adam’s dad! This should be interesting to see how it plays out with the big mystery of the books. I won’t give anything away, but rewatch the scene where he starts the fire at Cassie’s house. Take note of his wet footprints, but there is no water around.

I used to be the ingenue…

Faye’s mom is played by Natasha Henstridge. Didn’t she play that alien in Species? (Which I never watched, but I heard it was scary from the guy I had a crush on in 12th grade.) Now she’s playing a mom and high school principal. I feel so old.

3. Special Effects and Drama

That's the way to woo a girl! Pretty, sparkly water droplets!

That’s where this show is mirroring Vampire Diaries! We had the big house fire, Cassie’s car bursting into flames, pretty water droplet’s filling the sky and Adam’s dad drowning on the floor of the diner. If they can get that silly thing of character development fixed, we can have a great show.

You could have just helped her out of the car. Her legs aren't broken, Romeo.

 

Look out! It's the well dressed fire starter!

4. Humor.

Vampire Diaries is funny. Intentionally funny. (Unlike the Twilight movies, which are unintentionally funny and the intentionally funny is lame.) Secret Circle needs more funny like a snarky Damon. I am keeping my fingers crossed.

Bringing the snark...One episode at a time!

So when watching Secret Circle tonight, keep an open mind. There is a lot of possibility in this one and it might be a great fit for the CW and Vampire Diaries.

Vampire Diaries Recap: The Birthday or…

posted by EC Stacey

We're Back!

Bubbles, Bubbles, Bubbles Everywhere

*Spoilers, spoilers, spoilers everywhere too!

Vampire Diaries is back and it’s looking great. Damon surrounded by well placed bubbles looks mighty great! Tonight is episode two, so let’s look back to last Thursday and get reminded by the big plot points. (Aka making jokes about the big plot points.)

So much going on...which means a great season of Vampire Diaries!

When Will They Ever Learn…Mystic Falls Events Equal Casualties:

It’s Elena’s 18th Birthday, y’all! You know what that means…she’s legal for Civil War era vampires! (That’s creepy when you see it written down. Yikes!) What a way to celebrate your birthday then to be confronted be a “Bubbly”Damon. Then a massive party planned by Caroline’s party planning company, Not a Good Idea Events. Underage drinking, sexual frolicking and usually a dead body. When will they ever learn…large functions in Mystic Falls never turn out good!

This guy likes bubble baths.

Ohh…bye, bye Scarf Lady! (That was just harsh, Stefan.)

I will miss you...actually your collection of scarves.

 

A good party for Mystic Falls means beer, making out and only one death

Here Comes The Ripper:

Somebody's being a very bad boy.

You know how we didn’t dig Simpleton Eric on True Blood? Well, the opposite for Ripper Stefan! He’s better when he’s bad. Take that Edward Cullen! (Your Twilight mention of the post) Those poor girls in the house! Also, poor Alaric when saw what Stefan did to those girls. Rolling heads do nothing to help settle upset stomachs. They didn’t show it, but I bet Damon had to leave the room to giggle. At least Stefan put them together again, like those dolls you can get for your daughters that you can change their outfits by popping off a torso and maybe an arm. Do they still make those?

Did you really need to make me see that girl's head fall off? I lost my ham and cheese sandwich.

Look who it is…

Aww...it's little Simon!

Poor Reverend Camden…Simon left 7th Heaven and became a dirty werewolf trucker who drinks beers named Ray. Since I watched 7th Heaven when I was a youn’un to ogle the guy who played Simon’s brother. I find this disturbing, but kind of cool. Like when Stefan used Ray as a human dart board. Poor Ray…not only was he all marked up by darts, but he’s a vamp/wolf. That can’t be a comfortable transformation.

Guess this is what happens when you stop going to Sunday School!

“I See Dead People.” Jeremy Style:

"I see dead girlfriends...who wants to get their chronic on?"

All of a sudden Jeremy looks hot again. Is it because Bonnie was pretty much MIA this episode and he couldn’t whine at her? Or is it that Ghost Whisper might be getting an actual plot. He’s the Vampire Diaries Lafayette. (Question, will he now see Jesus from True Blood and start dressing more flamboyantly? I would much prefer seeing Jesus then Vicki and Anna. Just sayin’.) I am concerned that Jeremy is going to go down hill now that he’s partaking again in the wacky weed and hanging out with annoying Matt. (Sorry WC, he’s my new least favorite character now that Tyler’s been redeemed.)

Hello Tyler and Caroline! The Two Most Narcissistic Characters Are Actually Wonderful Together:

I'm pretty and you're pretty...it's been destined in the stars

Do opposites attract? Sometimes. Do two characters that actually have like personalities, but one like to bite necks and the other gets REALLY hairy once a month have super chemistry? Absolutely!!! These two get jealous and fight. Then they go at it like the rabbits they both chase and then eat. Much better, than that Caroline and prejudiced Matt mess! 

Unfortunately, new love cannot go smooth! (The ratings would plummet!) Caroline get’s shot by Tyler’s mom. (That’s the future mother-in-law from hell. That’s never a good sign for a future relationship!)

Those Poor Star Crossed Lovers! Sniff Sniff!

The final scene with the sad Stefan and Elena phone call brought a tear to my eyes! But not enough to get rid of Ripper Stefan!

Memories..of pouting at each other

True Blood Season Finale…

Posted in Recaps, True Blood with tags , , , , , , , , , on September 19, 2011 by talksupe
posted by EC Stacey

ALAN BALL, WHAT DID YOU DO!!!!!

When I was about to think that True Blood was going to go out with a wimper it went out with a bang! Two of them in fact. I must add that I wasn’t exactly pleased by these developments, yet they sure were surprising and exciting! Let’s just get to the most important parts…

Good bye Jesus!!! That’s right, the poor guy was killed off in another show. (RIP, Detective in Southland) By the character’s possessed boyfriend. Layfette is going to need therapy on this one!

Worst date ever!

Marnie was sent off with Sookie’s grandmother, where ever dead people go in True Blood. I was hoping something more dramatic. But it seems that Jesus will be hanging around and haunting Layfette due to his medium abilities. Which sure will put a damper on any future relationships. (Which reminds me of Jeremy, of Vampire Diaries, issues. It’s starting to get annoying how these show are mimicing each other.)

Bill and Eric were almost vampire BBQ, which would have put a damper on their budding bromance. Which will now be more possible that Sookie kicked them to the curb!

Nope to King Bill. Royality is such a bossy pain sometimes.

Nope, Simpleton Eric and Snarky Eric. Loving one vampire is enough without dealing with multiple personalities!

Hello, Handsome! Sookie's head is quite taken with your hero personality and those...abs.

Noel from Felicity stops by, but not as Quinn! If you are to have an actor like Scott Foley, you give him a BIG ROLE. Not one that centers on Terry, Arlene and Andy. One that hooks him up with Sookie. It’s Noel, people! He didn’t end up with Felicity, he should at least get some action with the lead heroine of this show!

Why doesn't Felicity...I mean Sookie...want me?

Looks like our favorite psychopathic king is coming back!

Welcome back, King Crazy!

Sam buried a brother and gained a family…and a crazy mother wannabe. Also, didn’t know until now that Sam’s shirts are also available for funerals. Hmm.

Jason gets beat up, but manages to get a lady.

Jason gets the girl, but loses the boy

Finally, Tara… not everyboy’s favorite, but I always liked her. Couldn’t Ball at least let her have some happiness and… a relationship with Sam. Tara kept saving Sookie this season and all she gets in a bullet in the brain! Is she really dead? In the hospital? Will someone turn her into a vampire? Will Layfette have constant companions with the ghostly Tara and Jesus? I could imagine their running commentary on his outfits right now! (That would be pretty funny!)

Real friends will take a bullet for you, even after you keep defending the vampire that's always trying to kill that friend. Poor Tara!

At least, no more Debbie! (yay!)

Freedom, Alcide! Freedom!!!!

Can’t wait for next summer! Already counting down the days!

Season 3 of the Vampire Diaries is Now Upon Us Boys and Girls and I Have To Say…

Posted in guest spots, Team Jacob Edward's Thought, Uncategorized, Vampire Diaries with tags , , , , , on September 15, 2011 by talksupe
posted by EC Stacey

“It’s about freaking time!”

Team Jacob Edward is going to refresh on the epic season two of Vampire Diaries for tonight’s season premiere! Thank goodness, because I forgot some major plot points!!!!!

Okay, so I really don’t have the right to say that since I watched part of Season 2 for the first time with WB’s re-runs and then the rest in a whirlwind the day the DVD came out until just the other day.  So kill me.  I’m used to large concentrated doses with watching Season 1 on DVD one episode after the other, and Season 2 in similar fashion.  Finally being caught up with the rest of the world kind of sucks!  I’m no longer allowed to sit in my bedroom with the remote saying, “just one more [episode]”. (EC: Me too!)

 When EC Stacey asked me if I wanted to do the honors and write a post about the start of VampDi Season 3, my first reaction was flattered and honored, my very next was similar to the feeling you get when you realize you have a test to take but didn’t study.  Literally the thought, “oh crap!  I should have taken notes!” ran through my head.

 You laugh, but seriously, SO much happened in Season 2.  You guys weren’t lying when you said that Season 2 was even better than Season 1.  And it seemed every episode had some major thing going on.

 “But TJE, you just watched the entire Season 2, it should all be fresh in your head for a recap,” you say?

Well, Season 2 went by in kind of a blur sitting in my bedroom taking hit after hit of VampDi as soon as my kidlets were sleeping or playing and poor Mr TJE being neglected (not really but he would probably tell you he was).

 Okay, so what did happen in Season 2? 

 Caroline turns into a vampire.  (that was interesting)

 We find out the Lockwoods are lycanthropes. 

“Dude, what’s with your eyes?” “ It’s um, the fluorescents.”

Damon kills hot Uncle Mason Lockwood… who was doing Katherine. (She really is willing to do anything to get what she wants isn’t she?  Well, okay, so the guys she does aren’t exactly trolls or anything.)

A moment of silence for Mason

 

Elena and Stefan fake fight.  (I hate you.  –wink, wink—) 

The newest plan to kill Katherine backfires (shocker) because Katherine had a witch put a spell on her which essentially delivers every blow they give to Katherine to Elena too, only she’s human, so she nearly dies.  (she’s outsmarted us again!)

Do they not get that already?  You just can’t kill her.  She’s like a cockroach.  Plus Katherine always knows what they’re going to do, she’s quite cunning.  No.  She’s more evolved than a cockroach.  It’s like if Edward and Alice had a kid that turned out to be an evil incarnate of them (sorry for the Twilight reference, I couldn’t help myself). 

Katherine’s like a real demon baby!

Katherine can’t literally read minds like Edward or tell the future like Alice, but she can read people and predict their next moves with such accuracy she may as well have those supernatural abilities.  But unlike Edward and Alice, Katherine doesn’t use her talents for the greater good.

Moving on.

There are new witches in town… well warlocks to be precise.  But we don’t like them because they’re on Elijah’s side.  Elijah is an original and is out to kill Elena.

We also meet Rose, who kidnaps Elena, but then ends up working with Damon to search for Klaus.

Elena offers herself up to Klaus.  (silly, silly girl)

Tyler triggers the curse (inevitable) and Caroline helps him through it.  You know, I kind of like those two together. Caroline is taken hostage and tortured by a couple of werewolves.  Jerks.

Katherine is back out of the tomb… did I mention that above.  Right, she was in the tomb, now she’s playing nice and joining team Salvatore to kill Klaus.  But she still can’t be trusted.

Klaus is… Alaric?!?!  WTF?  Well, no, he’s not, he’s just borrowing the body with his witch and warlock buddies help.  I did not see that one coming.

Klaus is werewolf/vamp hybrid

Isobel kills herself under Klaus’ compulsion in front of Elena’s eyes.

(Hmmm… I wonder… if Jake and Renesmee have babies, would their spawn be super-creatures like Klaus?  DUDE!  THAT is how the Cullen’s will overthrow the Volturi!  I finally figured it out!  They’ll have a whole litter (hehe) of super-creatures!)

We’re going to kick Volturi butt!

Ahem.  Sorry.  VampDi.  Not Twilight.  Right.  Focus TJE.

Elijah after Elena un-stakes him gets him to agree to help her kill Klaus.

We find out Elijah was in love with Katherine too…. I’m starting to think every guy fell in love with Katherine.  Jeesh.

Caroline and Tyler narrowly escape being hybrid sacrifices but Tyler bites Damon in the process.  (OH NO!)

Damon freaks out, not trusting Elijah’s get away, and forces Elena to drink his blood.  She effectively freaks out and confesses she loves Stefan but doesn’t want forever with him because she doesn’t want to be a vampire.  (break my heart for Stefan)  😦

John sacrifices himself to keep Elena human and alive after Klaus drains her blood.

Klaus is not thwarted by Caroline and Tyler escaping.  Instead he uses Jules for the wolf and Jenna as the vampire.  (holy what!?!?!?)

Klaus performs the ritual and begins to turn wolf.  Bonnie, having the power of one hundred dead witches weakens him to the point of his death.  Elijah punches through Klaus’ chest to finish him off as he agreed to, but Klaus convinces him into not killing him saying he’ll show Elijah where their family is.  (Stupid, stupid, stupid!)

Bonnie barters with Emily to safe Jeremy’s life because she loves him (I like them together)… but there seems to be a price… dead vampires(!?)

Damon is dying from the werewolf bite.  Stefan, desperately trying to save his brother, seeks out Klaus for a cure.  Klaus is the cure and Stefan pays the price slamming bag after bag of human blood, like alcoholic downing booze under Klaus’ command.  Katherine delivers the cure to Damon just in the nick of time.

Did I get it all?  No?  Too bad, that’s a LOT and my head is spinning.

So, what do I want to happen this season?  There are a lot of things, but the biggest one:  I personally hope that Elena falls in love with Damon.  What!?  Don’t hate me for that.  I like Stefan and all, but dang it, Damon deserves to get the girl for once.  Besides, Elena loves Stefan for how he is.  Damon used to be that brother until he got all surly.  Everything Elena hated about Damon, is exactly what Stefan is like now…. And Damon is softening up, showing more emotion.  They’re switching roles.  It’s only appropriate for Elena to fall in love with Damon while Stefan is out being a “ripper” for Klaus.

Think about it.

 Do you agree?  Do you think I’m the most horrible person for wanting that?

What do you want to see happen in Season 3?

TJE

 
 
 

Happiest of Birthdays to…Not Who You Think!

MY FABULOUS SISTER, “Steve”!

Wishes she could be "Steve"

I know that today is the hallowed day that Isabella Marie Swan was born. Except, Isabella Maria Swan is not real. She’s a character in Twilight. However, there is someone who was born today that is pretty fantastic and she’s real. So here is the top reasons my sister, “Steve” (her super heroine name) is cooler than the fictional Bella.

"Steve" loves these little guys!

1. “Steve” doesn’t stumble through life like Bella. Or for that matter, stumble over curbs, logs or the occasionally thin air. (That would be me.)

2. “Steve” is getting a doctorate AND running a non-profit. Bella just wants to get changed into the undead. Priorities, Bella, priorities!

3. While Bella runs around in over sized flannels and dirty converse, “Steve” rocks in Anthropologie and Banana Republic! (And teeth shirts, which is odd and somewhat Cullen approved.)

4. Bella only cares for Edward, while “Steve” does great things for her friends, family and the clients of her non-profit.

5. “Steve” has a cool husband who takes great photographs and doesn’t creepily watch her sleep. (at least I hope not.)

"Sorry, Bella. I only want to watch "Steve" sleep now." (BTW, "Steve" would be creeped out)

6. Bella sits arounds mooning over Wuthering Heights and Edward, while “Steve” runs around doing millions of actually important things.

7. “Steve” is a talented artist. Bella…umm…might be able to cook fish.

"Steve" does love the Vampire Diaries! Happy Thursday!

So I ask all of you to wish “Steve” the happiest of birthdays!
