*grabs new box of tissues* Okay *takes a deep breath* Twilight-Headed is coming to an end because, to quote Alice, "It's time." *shakes head, confused* Wait?! Did I just freaking quote Alice? WTH?! *inhales Jasper's calm* Okay, let's try this another way... *tries in vain to blink away tears that fall in a steady stream from my eyes, types* For various reasons we as a group have voted to end the blog today, on Christmas Eve, a la Seinfeld... before we jump the shark. But this is not goodbye:
Spank is NOT leaving the Twi-World, she is here to
I have grown so much over this past year within this special community of Twi-friends, and I am so incredibly grateful for each of you who have supported this fun venture between four friends who were joined by the love of a "little book" named Twilight. Though Twilight-Headed is ending, these friendships will never EVER end. I truly love you all.
*grabs last tissue out of the box and sings through tears* "Pick up the bags and get in the limousine. Soon we'll be away from here, step on the gas and wipe that tear away... One sweet dream came true today, came true today." *runs from the computer sobbing*
*sniffling* I'm going to miss this, truly. *glaring at Spank's empty tissue box as if it's the stupid box's fault* So, what can I say here? I love The League and have learned so much in this past year. Each one of my sisters-in-crime have brought something very special to my life. It's been an amazing experience to spread my writing wings with their support. *purposefully avoiding the obvious "Wind Beneath My Wings" segue there*
I, too, will still be around in the Twi-world. (Since I'm writing a Twilight FanFic, it'd be kinda hard to just up and leave, wouldn't it? My little FanFic home can be found at http://www.fanfiction.net/~meadowc.) I know that both Rain and Spank are thinking of creating homes for themselves in the blogosphere and I'm planning on bringing my special brand of nonsensical rambling to their doorsteps from time to time. I hope that you all will stick with us as we venture out into new beginnings. I'll remain on Twitter and look forward to the continued conversations with you, our fans. **group fandom hug**
I've said my farewell to this chapter of my life and have cried my tears. Life is about growing and changing, and I can't wait to see what 2010 has in store for us all. *looking around at the girls* We're gonna make it after all, girls. Wanna join me in a Mary-Tyler-Moore-Esque hat toss? Because if you don't, I'm gonna start to sob, and that'll kinda take away from the "Be strong, we're moving on, this is a good thing" message I had above. *humming the Mary Tyler Moore show theme and only missing a few notes because of sniffles*
I'll do you one better than a hat toss: *tosses @Little_Edward in the air once again for old time's sake*
*tears streaming down my face* I can't even begin to say how much these girls mean to me. Never before have I had so much fun while "working." For me, Twilight-Headed is more than just a blog we wrote. It's a sisterhood, a circle of friends, and for that, I am oh so very grateful. Even though I was late to the party, I've been 'talking' with my sisters here for a year now, and I know there is no way that will end.
One thing I will miss terribly is the hilarious and heartfelt comments from you all, our readers. You welcomed me so warmly when I joined Twilight Headed, and I love hearing your feedback - both here at the blog and on twitter. We honestly could not have asked for a better readership, and I thank you all. I will miss you *sobs* but I hope I'll still see you all on twitter, because I'm not leaving either.
I've also decided to pour my energy into my own blog. I haven't completely figured it out, but since I spend untold amounts of money on books (mostly young adult fiction), I thought it might be fun to have a place to talk about those books as well as the movies that come from them. So, yeah, Twilight will be a recurring topic, of course.
And, before I end up in the fetal position on the floor, I'd like to say thank you to Spank, Ginger & Meadow. For asking me to be a part of this amazing blog (because Meadow, I know you had some say in that even though you were technically retired at that point) and for helping me to find my way. I've learned so much about myself over the past months, and I owe so much of that to you three. I love you - each and every one of you. *ugly-crying deep breath* Smooches my friends.
*crying so hard I'm snotting* It has been an amazing year at Twilight-Headed, and in many ways I'm sad to see it end. I cherish my League girls and am so happy this has given us all the boost to move on in our own ventures. We've had the BEST readers ever. Seriously. I'm also not going anywhere. I'll still be on Twitter, as Ginger, will still live at The League Mansion with my girls and... I suppose it's time to share that I have my own personal blog. Yep, I've been holding out on you guys. So if you want to keep up with me and my family, you can find me at I Love Purple More Than You. I too am excited to see what 2010 brings us.
Spank, really? You said the wolves will continue to eat us out of house and home? O.o Have you switched sides?
NO, I am NOT switching teams *shudders* but they are like starving strays... I would NEVER date a dog *raises my brow at you* but nevertheless I cannot be cruel to animals.
*sighs and smiles* See? No matter what, some things will never change.
