It’s warm here in the OC. You know what that means? Time to break out the JORTS.
Which got me wondering. Since Jacob imprints (eww) on Renesmeee. To show his
creepiness devotion, do you think for a baby gift he brings her these:
Will we soon find this, wandering around the pre schools of La Push?
And all of this makes this sooooo much creepier. That’s Quil!
I’ll leave you with this blog. Just Jorts . It’ll make your mullet stand on end.
Christmas time has arrived and I have been super busy. Decorating the house and Christmas tree, baking cookies (Perhaps burning some. OOPS! Your fault, Somerhalder!), visiting Santa and Christmas shopping is fun and exhausting! In my rush to do all these things, I still couldn’t settle on the perfect gift for WC Stacey (SWD).
What to get her…what to get her…well how about a movie about these two kids?
Nevermind…she already has all of the movies…how about clothing? Like…
and for me…
Maybe some British television shows…
But Team Seth enjoys the newest version (maybe both for you, WC?)
How about I stay away from the supernatural genre and get you hooked on my favorite show, since you love Scotland!
It is a bit late to send gifts to the West Coast from the frigid east, this close to the big day. So…
Have the most wonderful Christmas, dear friend! (Also all our friends reading our silliness!)
East Coast Stace
Did you know that both East Coast Stacey and I are graphic designers? See, cosmic twins afterall. Well, designing t-shirts is my (SWD’s) day job. As some of you know, I design the shirts for the letters to twilight shirt shop , which started out as a favor to a commenter, with one design, and turned into this:
I even made that ^ into a banner for an Eclipse- themed dinner party (gone awry, by the way, which is fuel for another post). Yeah, printed it through work #laughingstock.
Then this summer, I decided I needed to express my appreciation for the Viking Sheriff.
more embarrassing better way than with a t-shirt? (*side note: I’m sure that’s what #hotalex had in mind when signing on to the show, that it’d lead to us 30 something married moms with “Property of Sheriff Northman” on their tatas.) Well designing one leads to designing 12, because I’m a shirt making strumpet (TB word of the day, right there) and my True Blood shirt shop was born.
…Then of course came the Vampire Diaries section. Because what new mother doesn’t want a Salvatore baby bib? Or who wants to express her enthusiasm for a fictious high school that she is 15 years too old to attend?
Anyway, last month I realized the Scottish festival/Highland games was coming up (in May, nonetheless, I like to be prepared). I wanted a Jamie Fraser inspired garment to sport while I watch
men in kilts caber tossing and stone putting (and trying to remember if anyone in the entertainment band aptly named , “Bad Haggis”,
resembles Roger). So, voilà, the Outlander section came into being. Again, like potato chips, can’t do just one.
With the holidays approaching and gift giving season coming to a head, why not stop to think… Do you have a friend who is fond of supes and inside jokes? Need a white elephant gift that will really make ’em say “What the…?” Nothing says Happy Holidays like a silly tee… or my personal favorite, beer stein bookends!
Happy Halloween, to all our Talk Supe friends! I know that a lot of you are eagarly awaiting the big candy-thon that is heading your way. Not to mention, some of you might be heading to a rockin’ Halloween party with your favorite guys and ghouls. Gosh, WC Stacey (SWD) already modeled some fabulous costume ideas for you. Well here’s my deepest, darkest secret for only you guys…I am not that excited about the Great Pumpkin Day.
I love Fall with it’s turning leaves, apple cider and pumpkin pies. Halloween, however, fills me with dread. That day means scary masks, trick or treating in blustery Northern weather and gory Halloween movies. If I do ever dress up for Halloween it’s usually things like angels, princesses, the occasional hippie chick and Strawberry Shortcake. Oh and not sexy versions, but non-threatening cute ones. Also, something usually bad happens in those costumes like the fateful year my sophmore year of college, when I landed face first in amud puddle wearing an angel costume. This is a cautionary tale of not drinking and trying to climb a fence while wearing heels in the rain. Mud just doesn’t come out of white, people!
You see I DO like supernatural movies and television shows. but really only the romantic ones that are pretty much glorified soap operas with minimal gore. Just not scary, super gory ones like Nightmare on Elm Street, Halloween and Friday the 13th. Don’t even get me started on Saw and Hostel. Want to see a girl chanting, “Please make it stop” under a blanket. Well, that would be me on most Halloweens.
Add in some zombies, oh I hate zombies, and see a new side of fear. AMC’s new zombie show, Walking Dead is going to do me in. How I miss you Don Draper and your Mad Men! I couldn’t even enjoy last night’s NBC’s Community, since they did a zombie spoof. (The Office, however, with it’s ‘Bill Compton’ Andy and ‘Sookie’ Meredith was all types of hilarious!) It did, however, lead me to an important discovery…I really like vampire stuff, but aren’t they just really pretty zombies? Who drink blood, instead of munching on their victim’s brains? They are both the undead. So for this Halloween, instead of frightening you, dear readers, with ghastly images (I do not want THOSE on my harddrive) I will be showing you happy Halloween images. Enjoy!
Don’t Damon and Stefan Salvatore give you all types of warm fuzzies? Stefan in his lumberjack shirts and cartigans. Damon ripping out Uncle Mason’s heart. Wait… what… *sniff, sniff* Damon how could you!
Ohh…look it’s our buddy Sam!
A puppy…wearing a Halloween costume!
Ahhh, finally Halloween is just around the corner. I have always loved Halloween, even as a wee tiny lass. I would always come up with very inventive costumes and sometimes would change various times during the night. As a small child, I dressed as the usual child things, bride, baby, wonder woman, etc. But as I got older, say ten, I started to gravitate to the more unusual, darker, costumes. Sure I was a pirate, but I was a battling matey, complete with battle scars and a enormous bruise on my face that my mother couldn’t even look at. I did a beautiful make- up job, wound make up was my specialty. (side note: Seriously, in my “Stage Make-Up” college course (aren’t you jealous of my major) I got an A+ for my final project, specialty wounds. I did vampire make up complete with deep puncture wounds that “bled” when the “skin” was punctured.) So it’s no wonder that some of the highlights in my costume repertoire have been: Victor Pascow (the dead jogger from Pet Semetary): age 14, Bride of Dracula: age 18, Coachman of Death, age: 19, Lady MacBeth complete with foot long dagger protruding from my gut: age 20, Mia Wallace (Pulp Fiction) after the incident (complete with red “target” and syringe) age :21, Titanic victim: age 23, dead Blair from The Facts of Life age:25, Sorceress age: 26, … and later, as I decided the smexy costumes were more fun…Captain Hooker. But still, the creeptasticness of the macabre has always been there, and finally, during this month alone (and well, on this blog daily…) I get to let me ghoulish flag fly.
And which supe will I choose to dress as this year? *Second Hand embarassment ahead*
For this month only I do not have to hide my bliss when stumbling upon items such as this:
I do not have to bypass fondling toy coffins in Target because it’s Halloween for goodness sake. It’s during this time of year that the middle of the road stores sell the stuff you’d only find at Hot Topic…or Forest Lawn.
The downside? Overhearing people discussing Halloween vampires, ghosts, witches, etc. and dying to join their conversation with my $0.02, but restraining. Because, well, a random stranger pontificating on the quality of fangs in “Costume Castle” and wondering why they can’t have ones that make that cool clicking noise like on True Blood is, well, just weird.
So, with a Halloween lovin’ mama, what is Snow Jr. going to dress as? Well, I took her to the costume super store aka “costume in a bag”. Yes, this coming form the former costume designer who made everything and would change costumes a few times during Halloween, because I couldn’t choose. Anyway, we’re in the store and she’s asking me “Mommy, what is this…and what is that…” I say, ‘Oh that’s a zombie, that’s a ghost, that’s a vampire.” She answers. “Oh mommy, I don’t like vampires.” I snicker and mumble, “you will”. Then we pass a Twilight poster on the way out. #trainingstartsnow.

So, did you all know we Stacey’s were in the same sorority? Sure, different chapters, different universities, and (slightly) different years, but the same letters nonetheless. Our actual houses may have differed, as well as the paths of the walk of shame, (EC: Ours was a much longer walk…the more they tried to segregate the boys and girls, the more coeds crossed the quad wearing Dave Matthews teeshirts and oversized sweatpants.), but we both have nightmares about red carnations and Bessie Grooms. (EC: Hey Feat LilJ, you were the President of my Chapter. Who would have thought we would be discussing Supe stuff. Nope, we were watching Buffy together even back then! Also just for a fun note: Our sorority has a Founder’s Day like Mystic Fall, but with no Salvatore Brothers or, you know, carnage) Anyway, I was watching one of my favorite movies, “Sorority Boys” and it got me to thinking… What if there was a Greek System for our Supernatural friends? We think it would go something like this:
Welcome to the hallowed halls of the University of Vlad. Home of the Fighting Impalers. Where you come for the academics and remain, because well…you become the undead.
Fraternity- Kappa Omicron Kappa (KOK), like the Delta house was also known as “Animal House” this one is simply known as ‘HELL House”, due to the Benjamin Moore: Bahama Sunrise paint that Eric chose for the walls.) KOK houses the alpha male Vampires. Eric Northman is president and Damon Salvatore is Pledgemaster. Have you seen Vampire Diaries season 1? Our Damon would put the fear in to those incoming freshman boys. Hazing becomes a new art form when you have to take out a werewolf! Mitchell (Being Human) is an honorary member of KOK, as of last semester’s behavior. (What! You haven’t watched it yet? Tsk Tsk!) Emmett is the member best known for crushing cans of TruBlood on his head and surfing the stairs on a coffin lid. (That’s my boy!)
Fraternity- Rho Omicron Tau (ROT), consists of the Volturi (sans Jane)- it’s all male, as all fraternities are, but …. we still think, ahem, Aro (and Caius, don’t forget Caius) prefers it that way. Their letters are embroidered on their silk Hermes scarves in calligraphy. There’s no blood keg in this mausoleum, these boys drink out of goblets and listen to early Baroque chamber music. Initiation consists of, um, actual spanking spiking. Won in last years IFC Trivia Bowl challenge, Talbot in a Jar resides in their trophy case.
Fraternity- Episilon Mu Omicron (EMO), is similiar to real life Lambda Chi. Led by president Edward Cullen, many self loathing, yet gorgeous, sensitive and caring, yet lethal, vamps reside at EMO. The RUSH chair, Stefan Salvatore holds monthly gatherings (every 28 days or so) to attract new members. (He’s a teacher that one. A very sensitive teacher) This is serious business. Period. Bill Compton is the resident advisor to EMO, but has been seen as of late partying at KOK. EMO is a dry house and is located next to the sorority Nu Alpha Gamma (NAG) for this reason. The parties there are not the most exciting, the boys seem to listen to Matchbox 20, John Mayer and Taylor Swift, while holding hands and talking about…feelings. (Mostly theirs, the drama queens)
Sorority- Nu Alpha Gamma (NAG), is compromised of our human sympathizers (Angela, Tara, etc) who are lonely and miserable because they are the late night/one night hook ups of the supe greeks. They’re the Jack in the Box drive thru meals for supes. Their house mom, or house aunt, because she’s young, cool and hip is Aunt Jenna. She allows boys (“boys”?) on the second floor. *wink wink* Some of the girls are ultra cranky, like Tara. Not a good thing, now that she’s rooming with Bonnie. They didn’t know that young lady can start fires with her mind during Rush. Oops. Those two young ladies are going to be trouble for KOK, but very popular at DOG.
Sorority- Sigma Nu Kappa (SN(ac)K), It’s just Bella, Elena and Sookie. Their walls are completely covered in maxi pads, because if one drop of accidental bloodshed escapes this house, a feeding frenzy would ensue. These girls are the most sought out on campus for that reason. Bella Swan was originally the president, but was usurped by Miss Stackhouse due to Bella’s wishy-washiness almost getting them slaughtered weekly. Elena, well as social chair, she plays with her hair and is constantly texting Stefan about buying her wine coolers.
Fraternity -Delta Omicron Gamma (DOG), is led by Alcide Herveaux. The Lockwood men, Jacob, George, Sam, Quil, Embry and the rest howl it up nightly in this dog house. It’s a mess in that house with all the…umm…marking taking place. Poor George is always running around the house with paper towels and saying, “Honestly, we are gentlemen. Could you please attempt to use the lavatory?” They all take turns patrolling the borders of the Row, making sure no one is eaten during a midnight walk of shame. Also, in this house, these puppies get neutered if imprinting on underage coeds occurs. They do lock up Tyler in the basement often, not for turning, just being generally annoyed by him.
Sorority- Delta Iota Epsilon (DIE), These are the badass female supes. This is obvs. the top sorority and their parties are killers. All the male Greeks are dying, well, many of them are already dead, to get into a DIE party. With fashionista president Alice Cullen, their Rush outfits are the best. No stupid matching sleeveless blazers, pearl necklaces, and khaki shorts here. Well, there may be pearl necklaces, but those come later, thanks to the KOK house. (oh boy…you didn’t just go there!) Jane is Pledge “Educator”. Not a step is missed during initiation with her in charge. Pam, Katherine, Jessica and Sophie Anne have been known to do naked row runs and end up for days in the KOK basement. No chains needed, unless requested.
Fraternity- Beta Rho Omicron (BRO) Our semi- supernatural friends, men with some powers, but not full blown supe. Members include Alaric, Lafayette, Jesus, the brothers Winchester: Sam and Dean, and Jeremy, aka Whiny-the-vampire-Slayer (although he’s just a pledge they took in at the last minute because finances were down due to Jason Stackhouse’s infamous bottomless keg stands…and take bottomless to mean both the keg and Jason). And Jeremy has a hot sister they want to bang. Well, Lafayette and Jesus just want to go sparkly belt shopping with her. Most likely he will be kicked out before initiation and sent to live with his sister. She’s the only one who can stand him. Bella likes to bake him cookies.
Fraternity- The house known as DUL (Delta Upsilon Lambda ) boasts (really?) Mike Newton as President, Eggs as Social Chair and Eric Yorkie as house decorator. House decorator, that’s uh, a new one. Tyler likes to pick up the ladies in his rockin’ van. Head of Campus Security, Charlie keeps a close watch on this one due to their abnormal activity of having 40’s (the malt beverage, to Yorkie’s dismay) parties on the front lawn, which has more than it’s fair share of couches. Also surprisingly, he hangs outside of Edward’s EMO house cleaning his shotgun, instead of watching out for the coeds at the party house of KOK. Priorities, Chief, priorites. Just cause, Bella only likes to hang out at EMO and DUL, doesn’t mean you don’t have a job to do!
Row Gods: Eric Northman, Alcide Herveaux, Edward Cullen, Jasper Hale (He brings the good vibrations to every gathering! Also 100 Monkeys, but not everybody’s perfect)… oh Hale, aren’t they alll row gods?
Row goddesses: EC and SWD, because it’s our blog, dammit.
Interfraternity Council (IFC) President: Carlisle “can’t we all just get along” Cullen
And of course, Panhellenic President: Jessica Stanley (Of course, she is)
So there you have it. By no means do these houses use white togas in their initiation rituals. They do a full outright ritual sacrifice, with stonehenge rocks, lamb blood and virgins. White’s just too hard to clean… besides, initiaiton is always after labor day.
Love in the Lyre and stealing KOK’s composite,
**Trivial fact, each series has a Sam: Merlotte, Clearwater, and Winchester. *
