If you're familiar with even the tiniest bit of the fandom that is Twilight, then you're aware that whenever this handsome man so much as shrugs his shoulders, grown women faint, little girls cry, and even heterosexual men stop and take notice. All he has to utter is a simple, "Um..." and the resulting screams reverberate around the world. Until this past weekend I found this phenomenon rather bewildering. I mean, I love me some Robert Pattinson (he is altogether delicious, but no replacement for my boyfriend, Jason!), but mass hysteria for one man alone? Well, OK. And then I went to SoCal with Heather and Tiffany.
I now understand what Rob must feel when swarmed by fans...demanding pictures, thrusting for autographs, screaming his name. Because seriously...we three girls got this our entire weekend. Kid you not. We felt so famous...all we had to say was, "We are bloggers," and folks lost their minds...demanding pictures, thrusting for autographs, screaming our names. OK, maybe there was no screaming, but there were many requests for our blog addresses...and pictures too numerous to count. For real, y'all. We've decided we roll well in the fast lane of fame. And that's always good to know. In advance. I'm just sayin'.
Here's Tiffany eating the best Mexican food on the planet. She's all, "Wait while I savor this bite..." And scene.
I'm convinced that should Heather ever record a CD of any kind, this right here should be the album cover. It's so blingy...so mysterious...so sexy. It makes me want to kiss her. Again.
Have you ever toured four wineries in one day? Eaten a fabulously prepared picnic lunch on the grounds of a gorgeous vineyard? Consumed two bottles of wine--apiece--in mere hours? If you answer "no" to any of these questions, I highly recommend you take measures to amend this situation. Because it is a good time. Indeed.
And while enjoying the various wineries, you must befriend the coolest gals on the tour bus. Because then you are guaranteed many more laughs than you thought possible...and it's always nice to have new BFFs. Especially when you ask these new BFFs, "Hey, wanna eat Mexican with us tonight?" and they're all, "Word!" Then they show up at Rosa's (the best Mexican food on the planet--did I mention that already?) and see what you've ordered and remark, "Oh, I have died and gone to Heaven. Amen!" If we didn't know it before that moment, we knew it when we supped together. Amy, Tonda, and Sharon...y'all were so fun...when are we planning our next vacation?
My final Heather, Lula, and Tiffany In California installment is tomorrow. Someone got a tattoo on this trip. I'm not saying whom and I'm not saying where the ink was placed. You just gotta come back to find out, is all.
p.s. Yesterday's picture? With the Filipino Fellas? Please...they are totally our new boyfriends. Did you even have to ask?
