Drove to FORKS.
Got stoked!

Normal Convo Ya'll

It happened one January evening. I was feeling a little weird...and this is how it went down.

Jaymes: "Dude, you know how you get that weird Deja vu feeling where you get all dizzy?"

Demanda: "Yeah…"

Jaymes: "I’ve had that for like 20 minutes. Seriously, what the hell is going on?"

Demanda: "Um… What’s wrong with you? Are you gonna die? Im gonna take a shower but I’ll take my phone in there just in case. So if you die, call me."

Jaymes: "I don’t think I’m gonna die but what if I disappear like that guy from The Time Traveler’s Wife*? If I’m not here when you’re out of the shower, that’s what happened. So I won’t be able to call you because my phone will still be here."

Demanda: "Are we seriously having this conversation?"

Jaymes: "Yes."

Demanda: "Ok, just checking."

....aaaaand then I was sick for a month.


*The Time Traveler's Wife is one of my favorite books of all time. If you've never read it, please do it. For me.

Vampires: You're Doing it Wrong

Dear Twilight Makeup/Hair/Wardrobe Team-

I know you don't know me but I think you may benefit from some suggestions in this post. Just to give you a little background on me, it just so happens that I'm TERRIFIED of vampires.


 I almost didn't read Twilight. What a shame that would have been, huh? But really, my friends had to actively force me to watch Interview with a Vampire and Bram Stoker's Dracula in high school and I had nightmares for days. I can't watch anything even close to scary or it's bye bye sleep for me. So imagine my excitement when I was over at my co-worker's house back in 2006 and she had this sitting on her coffee table.

Wow, it's been 5 years since I picked this thing up?! 

I picked it up and read the back cover, then immediately put it back down. Vampires? No way. But she has amazing taste in books and told me I HAD to read it. Even after I told her that vampires make me pee my pants, she told me they were good vampires and to read the first chapter. If I didn't like it, I didn't have to read it. One chapter later and I was asking if I could borrow the book. One day later and I was asking if I could borrow New Moon. She was still reading it but I borrowed it afterwards and then had to wait for Eclipse and Breaking Dawn to come out (which was a LONG time).

Anyway, I'm getting off topic. When I found out Twilight was being made into a movie and I saw the cast, I wasn't impressed. Maybe it was bad photos that were released or something.

Seriously, can you blame me? Gross.
And why are his fingernails dirty?!?

I've since realized I have never seen such a beautiful group of people in 1 (or 5) movies. I mean come on...

Yeah, you people are ridiculous. 

Although this cast is unnaturally hot in real life, you somehow manage to make them look less than awesome. Let's take a looksies, shall we?

Real life Rob. Delish.

Not horrible but I prefer the live version.

Ashley Greene = gorgeous

It's like Ashley Greene's ugly twin took her finger out of the light socket long enough to take a photo.

Nikki Reed radiates beauty. 

Stephenie Meyer said Rosalie Hale was the most gorgeous girl in the world or something.
She lied. 

Jackson Rathbone is well... you know. Yum.

Someone call PETA. A poodle has been killed and used as a wig! 

That's just a few examples. I could have kept going with many many more photos but I don't want to torment you that much. Nor do I have that kind of time on my hands. Call me crazy but the Twi cast would have been much better off if they had been left alone with just some added pale makeup and contacts. 

I do have another suggestion that may benefit you if you ever choose to work on another vampire movie in the future. Head on over to the set of another vamp series that I've been recently obsessing over watching and maybe intern there for a day or two so you can see how it's SUPPOSED to be done. Because it seems to me (and probably the rest of the viewers) that the crew on the set of The Vampire Diaries really knows what they're doing when it comes to making the cast look hot as hell. I've provided you with some examples below.

That Paul Wesley sure knows what he's doing when it comes to looking hot. does Stefan Salvatore. They almost look like the same person.

Ian Somerhalder, congratulations on your face. 

It's just as hot as Damon Salvatore's. Also, nice body.

Beautiful Nina Dobrev

If Katherine didn't annoy me so much, I'd have a major girl crush.

Daniel Gillies makes my girly parts tingle
BTW if you don't follow him on twitter, you should. He's hilarious!

As does the equally hot and badass 'Elijah'. 

I would again post more examples but I don't have all night. Plus I don't wanna spoiler alert people who aren't all caught up or haven't watched (shame on you!) to which characters are vampires and which one's aren't.  (spoiler alert: everyone is) 

So you see, dear Twilight crew, there IS a way to make vampires hot without caking on the unnatural looking chalk makeup, adding some Kmart wigs, and putting in alien-like contacts. Maybe in a few decades when they decided to remake Twilight (I shudder at the thought of a cheesy remake) the people on that crew will stumble upon this post and take my words of wisdom to heart. But until then, just know this:

Just for the FORK(S) of it - #26

Ok so we promised we would do the "Just for the FORK(S) of it' posts every Friday until FOOOOORKS. We lied. So sue us. Or don't because we don't have that kind of money. Also, if we got sued, we wouldn't be able to take this fantastical trip.

Now that the introduction is out of the way, we'll say what we came here to say.

T MINUS 26 DAYS!!!!! 

In the airport on the way to Seattle. This was the solution to the fact that Demanda looks cute all doped up on valuim (she's scared of planes) but I  kept taking photos with only one eye open.
What do you expect?! It was 6am.
And I love pirates.


Thursday, September 1, 2011


Why hello, long time no blog. I, Demanda, have made a pact with myself and @musingbella that I will blog every day this month leading up to the day Jaymes and I leave for “Seattle.” My friends and family think I am going to “Seattle” for a few days.  .  . little do they know I am going to the Mothership that is Forks, Washington. Gah,  I c a n n o t wait ladies!

I see Borderline Phenomenal has new followers and I wanted to re-introduce myself and Jaymes.  I would love to meet all of you in Seattle and Forks if you are going. 

Demanda:  I love long walks on the beach. . . just kidding. I am a late bloomer when it comes to loving anything that remotely has to do with Twilight. I used to endlessly make fun of Jaymes and her love for Twilight. Every time I saw a disco ball I would scream “EDWARD!” (I still do). I admit I watched Twilight (hated it) New Moon (hated it) then Eclipse (LOVED IT) On June 30th, 2010 I entered into the fandom that is Twilight and what a fantastic ride it has been ever since. After watching Eclipse, I read all four books in three weeks. My entire life revolved around that damn Saga. I would spend unhealthy amount of hours Google-ing topics on Twilight, Rob, Robsten, Kellan, locations of filming, Kellan, release dates on upcoming movies, Kellan; and then I came across my first Twi-Blog Twired. I fell in love with TwiredJen and Elusive_S From Jen’s blog I found Twitarded and it was all downhill from there. I went to Forks with everyone in 2010 , more on that in another post, and had one of the BEST weekend of my life.

Oh hai, Edward!

 I live with Jaymes in a small beach community in California.  My blogger handle is Demanda, on Twitter I am @amandakmelby, and my real life name is Amanda, go figure! Jaymes and I are getting into Seattle early Wednesday morning to get in some tourist attractions before the meet up in the Red Room of Pain. I would consider myself to be extremely outgoing so if you need a dance partner, karaoke partner, or drinking buddy. . come find me!  Thursday we’re driving to Forks after we pick up luvsmesumedward  and her sister and staying until Sunday afternoon.

Jaymes: What up h00rs! I'm Jaymes. I've been awesome since 1982 when I was made at a Cinco de Mayo party in the woods of a small Iowa town. I enjoy dancing, champagne, laughter, and 99 cent shrimp cocktail.  Some people may see me as a Sarcastic Sally but I see myself as stellar. I've been addicted to Twilight since I saw New Moon sitting on the coffee table of a previous co-workers house. "What's this?" I asked. She stated it was a vampire book and I immediately threw it down like it had lit my hand on fire. "I don't DO vampires" I stated (my, how things have changed.. I would give anything to do a vampire now!) She told me the books were amazing and to read the first chapter of Twilight. If I wasn't convinced, I never had to look at them again. One chapter later and I was asking her if I could borrow the book. I promptly returned it to her the next day and asked to borrow New Moon. I returned THAT to her the next day and she gave me devastating news; Eclipse wouldn't be out for a few months. I waited patiently for Eclipse and Breaking Dawn to come out and read them the day they hit the bookstores. As soon as I found out they were being made into a movie, I squee'ed with my co-workers and then we all sat around curiously wondering who would be playing the lead characters. When I found out it was Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart, I didn't want to see the movies anymore. As soon as I saw the movies, I immediately changed my mind and fell in love then tried to push them on Demanda like a bad crack habit. She didn't budge very easily. Even after seeing Twilight and New Moon. When she went on a trip for a week with nothing to do, I made sure to pack all 4 books in her suitcase. She came home and stated "I read one chapter but then I got sick and slept the rest of the time." After rethinking our friendship for a long time, I decided to give her another chance. Thankfully she came around so we could fangirl out together and watch/read/talk/smell/lick all things Twi. We had a FANTASTICAL time in Foooooooooorks last year and can't wait to see all of your sexy faces again!
