I went on a Twifan's dream vacation in the midst of a family holiday! What a brilliant idea to go to Vancouver for a family vacation while New Moon is filming. Effing brilliant!!!
So we thought we probably had all the luck we were going to have already on Day 1 and Day 2 of our trip to Vancouver, British Columbia but the fun didn't stop there.
We had made tons of "stalker" friends outside our hotel. Twilight fans are the nicest and dedicated fans I have ever encountered. I bet most people would say the same. Robert says "resourceful", Kristen says "physcotic" but whatever! My favorite friends I met were Kat...she has been blogging on her since I told her about Twifans! Go Kat. Stephanie and her wonderful Dad...yes the elusive Twi-Dad. He was an amazing stalker day and night. And the crazy Virginia gals, Lisa and Srother! I will tell of our tales of stalking as we go.
I never did get as lucky as my daughter on part 1
of day 2. She got the most beautiful picture with Taylor. I was too busy being star struck to jump in the picture. But I was excited when I stumbled upon these photos and look you can see me, well kind of...
These pictures were taken while making new Twi-friends outside the hotel. Fans had been camped out there all day and the door man and valet were laughing. I said those are my people and yelled hi Twilight friends to them and then had to go make friends.
Most of them were foreign exchange students that didn't speak very good English but loved them some Twilight. This is when I met Kat.
A California gal like me that had driven 16 hours straight to visit Vancouver before the Olympics? Come on Kat I wasn't buying that one. You were a true stalker extraordinaire. Kat and I exchanged cell numbers and decided that 2 heads were better than one and we could help each other and that is exactly what we did the rest of the week.
Savannah seemed to have the best luck. But I am kicking myself now! Most of the time it was just me and her wondering around running into the stars. And when this would happen I would let her get in the picture while I took it. Now I wish I had been pushy enough to ask for another one with Taylor and with Rachelle.
We bumped into Rachelle several times. Each time she was so nice. The first time we asked her for a picture she was on her way to get her hair dyed. She said she had been in a pool all day and that the chlorine had stripped the red right out of her hair. I am now wishing I asked her the Loreal color she showed me....damn. While trying to get the picture I couldn't get Savannah's camera to work so Rachelle helped me lol. Here is the picture after about 5 minutes of playing with the camera.
To me her hair looked plenty red but after she dyed it, it was extreme red.
We really had an amazing day. We were very excited for what the rest of our vacation would have in store. To be continued....
