LETTERS FROM STEVO: Gobble! Gobble! & other Random Warblings

We had a great Thanksgiving. We spent the lovely holiday in the thriving metropolis of Farmington. Big Dave and I played in a turkey bowl...and yes, it was tackle(because that is how we do it!). We stayed in our chairs, kept our hands up, kept our heads on a swivel and insert all the other football cliches here. The trip was good other than the flight home. Peyton threw a massive temper tantrum because he didn't get to sit by his mama. I was burning with so much fury, you could've fried an egg on my head! In other words, I was so angry, I wanted to shove gun powder up my nose, light a match and REALLY blow it! GRRR!

This last week, we went on a date night with the Shafs and the Cory/Tiff combo to watch the much ballyhooed "Twilight". I had heard of these illustrious books written by some mormon gal, but have not read them and was only vaguely familiar with the story. Emily in particular is a dedicated fan. The story is an estrogen filled teeny bopper's dreamland; full of unrealistic human behavior. An average girl with little personality being stalked relentlessly by a "dashing" young man of equally little personality but great looks. My favorite part was the vampire taking the girl up to the sunlight to show her what he really was. I remember thinking, "excellent! He's gonna be this cool looking demonic monster thing!" Well, not quite. Instead, he's "sparkly". Are you kidding me??? Sparkly??? Say it with a lisp for added effect. I often wonder what I was doing watching that movie that night...

On an unrelated topic, Mya needs to learn how to treat her boyfriends. This past week, one of her boyfriends complimented the dress she was wearing and she shot back that it was not a dress, but a skirt! It's called grace and tact Mya...sheesh! Even I know that! Graceless lady! You know who I am. You know I can't let you...slide through my hand!

We are sorry we missed out! I have to say, I am a seriously dedicated Twilight fan, but I laughed out loud multiple times at that movie, especially at the sparkle scene. Way too low budget. Maybe they will get a bigger budget, an almost entire new cast, and a new wardrobe for the 2nd one and make it halfway decent!

Mya is cute enough and smart enough that I think she can slide by (at least for now) without the grace. Kudos girl, for giving it to him straight.

I don't care how much money, amazingly good actors, or wardrobe they have for any subsequent twilight movies. They will all suck. I can't believe your wife dragged you to that movie and called it a date night! Were they punishing you for something? What did you do? You are a sucker for sure. I refused to read the books and am also refusing to see the movie. Have some cajones stevo!! You don't have to subject yourself to crap just because it was written by a mormon gal or your wife thinks it would be a fun date (sorry amy). Ummm...maybe this is why I'm still single?

I can't believe I hadn't read this until today. Hilarious. Steffan was actually crying when he thought the lead actress was going to die. He even had to stop eating his reeses pieces to use a tissue. Adorable!
