The Bad Attitude RETURNSSSSS!!!

Attention Loyal Readers:

I am alive.
Mostly.

Yes I realize I haven't updated since February.
Dammit, I've been kinda busy this year.

So anyway, I told you back in February that my sister was having baby #2.
Guess what.
He's seven months old now and I've never posted a picture of him on my blog.
Bad aunt Kelley!!
Okay okay, you can totally say it now.
Awwwwwww!!!
Yeah, I know.  I have super cute nephews.
It's pretty cool.
I got them their Thing 1 and Thing 2 shirts when I went to Florida recently.

Sooooooooo...
I realize I am nowhere near finished posting the England pics yet.
Or the Charlie Brown Ice pictures.
Or even uploaded my Harry Potter theme park pics to my computer from my phone.

Whoa!
Yes, I said Harry Potter theme park!
Booyah!
It was like heaaaaaaaaven!
Minus the fact that it was like one hundred degrees outside that day.

I have a lot to go over.
I guess I can try to do that now.

Hmmm...where to start...

Welcome to Insane Nashville Weather 2010!!!

This happened in January when we went to Twitour.


Frozen Tundra of Doom.
Nashville doesn't get a lot of snow, but we are fond of our ice storms.
Especially when everything shuts down.
Awesome.
NOT.

Then this happened in May.
Even less awesome than January's Frozen Tundra of Doom.


Why, hello there, Cumberland and Harpeth Rivers!
Welcome to our homes!
I hope no one has any mutant babies due to the toxic flood waters.



The awesomeness reached my parent's neighborhood, but luckily the house did not get any damage.
I can't say the same for the houses across the street...
Or most of the homes in Bellevue, including my Grandmother's.
Someone could have made a total killing selling boats on the side of the flooded road.
Just sayin'...

Well, since we had such a cold winter that came with a kick-ass ice storm and a spring that came with a great flood of nasty water, we could only assume that at least the summer was going to be somewhat mild and not at all like hell fire.

WRONG!!!!!

Thank you heat index for nearly killing me the majority of the summer.
Nashville was a total sauna!
No lie.
It was a nightmare to my hair.

Ah yes.
I moved.
And then I moved again.
Let's just say...
I should take up the art of moving and turn it into a profession.


Here are some pictures of my recent trip to Orlando, FL!!



Me in front of Cinderella's Castle.
Haha!

Me and my friend Amy ridin' the waves at Universal Studios!
Apparently that little person can walk on water.
Get out of our picture, dammit!

Me and my friend Melissa, aka My Puppet Master.
She totally controls everything I do.
#StupidLies


I made a new friend at IHOP!
Isn't he cute?
I still haven't named him.


Here is my total fangirl moment at Universal Studios.
See Hogwarts?
OMGGGGGGGG!!!!
*dies of excitement again*


Can you guess what I'm drinking there in the magical land of Harry Potter world?
BUTTERBEER!!!!!
It was everything I ever hoped it would be...
minus the alcoholic content.
Damn.
The Butterbeer line was longer than the line for the rides.
Hot damn.


Girl's Night the day before I left.
We went to Bubba Gump's.
It was fabulous.
That's Melissa, Me, Amy, and Keira.
I love those girls!
They all rock!!

I MISS FLORIDA!!!!

And now it's time to show some love to one of my friends!!
Paola, I love ya!
Follow her on twitter!!
She makes me laugh a lot!!
Just do it!
Do it, I say!


She's not a rabbit, but she's definitely hyper!

And now for your moments of Zen:


I totally love the brunette JM.
Just sayin'...


*fangirls hardcore because I can...and because it's all I apparently do*
Follow the funniest Castiel and Dean on twitter.
That's a total order too.

Okay, that's all I have for now.
I promise to start updating more frequently again.
Well, I'm not going to promise.
I promise to try to try to update more often.
O.o

Thanks for reading!

Love,
The Bad Attitude Queen

TWITOUR ON ICE!!!

Hello readers!
Here I am!
I am alive and kicking and back from
TWITOUR!!!!

Now, before I begin, I have a couple of things to talk about.

ONE:
My sister will be having a baby tomorrow!
He was supposed to come out on February 12th, but due to complications they are taking him out earlier.
So tomorrow we will be welcoming
Matthew Jacob
into the world!
I am so excited!
I hope Patrick loves his little brother because there goes all his attention!


I love this kid!
He's the greatest!
(PS-This is a picture from Charlie Brown ICE at Opry Mills.  I will post those later.  Better late than never!  And I still haven't finished posting my England pictures either!  I fail at updating!)

TWO:
I went and saw Avatar with my co-teacher last weekend.
Two words:
FREAKING AMAZING!!!
If you have not yet seen this movie or are unsure about it,
I am telling you now.
GO SEE IT!
You will not regret it.


Sam Worthington is fabulous!
I have not spoken of my love for Sworthy recently!
He rocks my socks off!

Okay...
the moment you have all been waiting for!

TWITOUR NASHVILLE 2010!

First things first.

Kellan Lutz did not show up like we were all hoping.
We bought the photo op tickets.


*kicks Kellan*
Thanks for opting to go skiing instead of letting us take pictures with you!
All right, I feel better now.

Anyhoo, in his place we got Charlie Bewley and Michael Welch with Gil Birmingham as the surprise guest!
So in the end, it was well worth it!
We were happy!
Charlie and Mike were hilarious!
Gil is just awesome!


Welcome to THREE DAYS of nothing but Twilight!
We had quite the exhausting but fabulous weekend!




Here I am with Julie and Nori, ready to geek out all weekend long!
Aren't we so spiffy looking?
Yeah...


Gil Birmingham and the Billy Black Stare!
He was awesome to listen to!
And so funny!
We got him for two days!!


Bee tee dub!
How awesome are Nori and I?
We totally sported the Burger King Twilight Crowns all over the hotel!
Okay back on topic.


Peter Facinelli
OMG
I love him even more now!
He is funny!
And he is such a nice guy!!
I am so glad I got to meet him!


Photo op picture!
Fyi: I had to take a picture of it with my phone, hence the random glare right in the middle.
When I can get the actual photos scanned onto a computer, I will change to the better looking image!  Peter's head looks funny because of the angle.  He's so much better looking than what you see here!


I now have two autographs from Peter Facinelli!
I had the stars sign my Eclipse book.
I didn't get vampire fangs at the bottom of his autograph because he was so upset about spelling my name wrong.  He had to go put that E back up in there!  Oh well.
I still love him!


This is one of my favorite moments of Twitour!
Check out how close my face is to the PFach there!
Have I mentioned how cool he is?
He's so nice to all of his fans!

Side note: I lost my voice on Friday.
I told Peter he was following me on Twitter.
I'm not sure how well he understood me!

And oh yeah!
This happened before we even got to Twitour!


The Julieperk got to drive on sheets of ice for three days.
It was all kinds of fun!


So here is Bronson Pelletier!
He plays Werewolf Jared.
Okay, so he is definitely hotter in person!
He's also crazy hyper, but he was fun to watch onstage!
When it came to answering questions from the audience, he just hopped right off that stage and walked into the audience.
Fangirls died a little.
It was pretty neat.


Kiowa Gordon (aka Embry Call) arrived to the hotel right before he got onstage.
The poor guy was sick and had been on a plane for six hours.
So stupid fangirls asked ridiculous questions.
"What color is your toothbrush?"
"Do you have a girlfriend?" He does.
"Is she famous?" No.
"Does Bronson have a girlfriend?"
So I almost committed several acts of homicide.
Poor guy.
Still, I enjoyed getting my photo taken with them.


Again, crappy photo op image because I had to take a picture of the picture with my camera phone.
Team Wolf Pack!
Woot!!


Ummm...Mike Newton!
You got hot!
What's going on with my face in this picture?
I so got to talk to him.
It was awesomespice!
Does anyone else think Michael Welch resembles John Cusack?
Anybody?
Nope?
Just me?
Okay!


Daniel Cudmore photo op!
Yeah he's like 6'7".
I came up to his armpit.
Nice.


Check out me and Nori at the Volturi Vampire Ball!
I was supposed to be Bella.
Yeah...not so much huh?

Anyhoo, back to the hot men.
Most importantly, this one...


That's right.
Charlie Bewley and a SUCKER!
*dies*
The fact that he is British totally helped out too!
But damn, that boy is HOT AS HELL!!!

And now we come to my favorite picture from Twitour weekend.


That's right, ladies and some gentlemen!
I got to hug Charlie Bewley!
And it was....
FABULOUS!
Again, once I manage to scan these pictures onto a computer instead of taking a picture of a picture these will look so much better.
I promise!

It is time for everyone to make way for....

SUPER DEMETRI!!!!!!!!!!!!!


He's impossibly fast and strong.
He can track anyone on earth.
His accent is HOTNESS!

So amazing weekend!
Kellan sucks for not showing up.
But seriously...it's hard to not love Kellan so all is forgiven.
Especially because I got a hug from Charlie Bewley.

Anyway, that sums up the Twitour experience.
Hot men, lots of fangirls, pictures galore.
I HAD FUN!!!

Let's do it again next year.
TWITOUR NASHVILLE COMING IN MARCH 2011!


I hope everyone is appropriately jealous by this point!
I know I would be!
*cheeky grin*

Over and out!

Reasons Why I Fail At Life

Reason #1:
I cannot cook
anything!!!

Once upon a time,
about a year ago,
I was trying to cook macaroni and cheese.



I've cooked this a million times in my life.
However, on this one fateful night
THIS HAPPENED!




I turned on the wrong burner and there were eye covers.
Needless to say...
FAIL!

I recently attempted to cook bacon in the microwave the way my dear sweet BFF Julieperk told me to.
She did it.
She explained how I need to do it.
Well well well...
I have no picture to explain this but let's just say...
FAIL!

Last night, I had a Totino's pizza which I put in the oven.




Guess who forgot to take the pizza out of the oven for almost five minutes after the timer went off?
FAIL!

Tonight, I tried to microwave some instant coffee from Starbucks.




Guess what?
I burned my coffee!
FAIL!

Reason #2:
I have not updated this blog since before Thanksgiving!
And it's not like there hasn't been some bad attitude going around!
I've simply been busy.
CHA!
FAIL!

Reason #3:
I've been reading the same book for over two weeks  now.
Why?
Because I've been busy.




Wonderful book...what I have read so far!
But I am only in the early early part of the book.
I usually read like it's going out of style.
FAIL!

Reason #4:
I can't walk!
Seriously...
I can't walk!



FAIL!

Reason #5:
I know this frickin' awesome...thing!
But it's a secret!
So I can't tell anyone!
AND IT SUCKS!




Luckily I'm not a blabbermouth...
BUT DAMN!
This sucks!
I want to tell everyone!
And I can't!
FAIL!
Or maybe that counts as a
WIN
because I'm keeping this secret like asked!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

GUESS WHAT!!!

Twitour is less than a month away!
Pretty soon I will be meeting the following people!




The totally awesome PFach
who still follows me on Twitter!
Rock on!




And the super cool Kellan Lutz!

Hey guys!
I'm the bombdotcom!
Don't forget it!

So I totally love my BFF!!!




Julie is also the bombdotcom!
True story!

Anyway, I don't really have anything to talk about!
The Bad Attitude will be back shortly!

Just a brief update...

Bad Attitude's Book Review
The Girl Next Door
by Jack Ketchum



I read this book over a period of two days, and I can say, without a doubt, that the subject matter of this book is beyond disturbing.  The story is about a girl named Meg and her sister Susan who go to live with their Aunt Ruth and three male cousins after their parents are killed in a car accident in 1958.  Susan is temporarily crippled from injuries sustained in the accident, and Meg comes out with one big scar on her arm.  The story is told in first person from the perspective of a twelve-year-old boy named David, who lives next door to the characters in the book.  Meg is a fourteen-year-old girl who is suddenly forced to endure punishments that gradually become more heinous as time goes on at the hands of her aunt.  She also lets her three sons, and eventually other children in the neighborhood punish her however they like.  She is locked in a basement where she is often tied, gagged, and blindfolded while being beaten, tortured, and ultimately raped.  The narrator, who meets Meg and befriends her at the beginning of the story, goes from being a spectator (never a participant) to trying to help Meg and her sister escape from their prison.  While completely disgusted by the abuse this girl suffers, I found myself unable to put the book down, simply searching for the light at the end of the tunnel.  The book itself is amazing although difficult to stomach at times.  I have not seen the movie, and I am not sure if I would be able to handle it, truth be told.

I was quickly brought back to the real world while reading this book.  If only we really had heroic vampires and adventurous wizards to save us.

End Review

Now that I've thoroughly depressed/distrubed everyone with my less than humorous opening for my blog, I will now turn to things of a lighter note.

Potter Puppet Pals: Snape's Diary



Since I'm so insanely obsessed with Harry Potter (moreso than Twilight), I'm going to talk about it.

Sooooooo...

I would like to discuss my favorite character.



From the moment I first began reading Harry Potter, Professor Snape was my favorite character despite being sallow and mean to his students.
I always knew there was more to him than we knew.
When he killed Dumbledore (for the love of God, if you did not know this bit of information by this point, then you need to catch up like right now), I refused to believe that he was a bad guy.
And when I learned the whole truth about Snape in the Deathly Hallows, I loved him even more.
I was a Snape supporter from beginning to end!!
There is so much more I'd love to say about this character, but I do have friends who have not made it to the final book, and since there is not yet a movie, I do not want to ruin anything more than I have.
So, who else out there is a big Snape fan?

I'm feeling especially introspective today.
I'm not sure why.
I always have more to write about, but usually forget about it by the time I start a'writin'.
Such is life.




Perhaps this will be your moment of zen.

I need sleep.
Tomorrow is Wednesday.
And then I get a
FOUR DAY WEEKEND!

Keep your fingers crossed that my sense of humor comes back in full swing soon!

New Moon Mania!!!

Kellebelle's New Moon Review
brought to you by
My Bad Attitude

WARNING: CONTAINS SPOILERS FROM ALL BOOKS AND BOTH MOVIES!!!
DO NOT READ IF YOU DON'T WANT ANY SURPRISES RUINED FOR YOU!!!


I feel the need to discuss aspects of the movie I particularly enjoyed or those that simply stuck out in my mind.
So here goes.

1) Edward Cullen
(wow, like we didn't see that one coming)



Why, hello tall, pale, and handsome!
We've waited many many (and believe me when I say many) days for you!
Of course, I also expected to sit through the movie saying
"Where's Edward?  OMG!"
Then there were shirtless werewolves and I got distracted....
Anyhoo...
the subject of Edward Cullen leads me to this.

2) The Break-Up Scene
(if I've spoiled anything for anyone, deal with it)





Luckily, I got my "boo-hoo's" out of the way the first time I saw this movie.
It was heartbreaking.
I felt Bella's pain because breaking up sucks for everyone.
Basically the whole movie is all about Bella being extremely depressed and becoming an adrenaline junkie just so she can hear Edward's voice, but not receiving any form of psychiatric help for her odd behavior.
However, I'm lead to believe that Edward was even more down in the dumps after leaving Bella for this particular reason.





Aside from the fact that Edward is trying to kill himself so he doesn't have to live in a world without Bella (because he believes her to be dead), Edward wears the same outfit for the entire movie.
That boy was gone for six months and did not change his clothes once!
Talk about lacking motivation!
Hello, Edward, just because you don't have to shower doesn't mean your clothes aren't going to get a bit ripe after awhile!  I mean, you were in the jungle at one point!!

3) The Volturi





I attempted to find the Solimena painting of the Volturi shown in the movie, but there were no images of it on google.  So I'm using this image to discuss the painting.
I thought this scene was quite comical...I can't really figure out why.
It just made me laugh.
However, as Edward went on to describe the Volturi, and the camera panned in on the painting, the characters started to...move!
I thought this only happened in Harry Potter!!
So I might have geeked out for a second because I thought of Harry Potter, and I may have lost focus for a few seconds.  No big deal really.
It was a nice way of explaining the Volturi, and showing a bit of Carlisle's past since that was blatantly left out of the first movie!

4) Charlie Swan



I love Bella's dad!!!
 I wish Billy Burke had not been so deadset on having the ugly pornostache for the movie, but he's still hot, and this is probably because he is totally hilarious.
Charlie referring to himself as a "terminal bachelor" and being "a real ladies man" had me rolling through all three viewings (yes three, shut up) of the movie.
That guy has also come close to death by crazy vampires more than once and has no clue.
He doesn't even know this his own daughter's boyfriend is a vampire and that her best friend is a werewolf.
He's a good dad though, and does everything he can to protect Bella.

5) Harry Clearwater





What a great character.
"Don't worry, Bella.  Those bears won't get the drop on me."
So I was discussing what happened to Harry with a friend of mine because what happens to him in the book isn't exactly what happens to him in the movie.
His heart attack is a result of his son and daughter turning into werewolves in the book, but in the movie his heart attack is a result of Victoria basically scaring him to death.
She's a scary bitch.
That's a true story.
I do think that what happened in the movie made things more personal when the Cullens and the Quileutes have to go up against Victoria and her army of newborn vampires in Eclipse.
Graham Greene did a great job with the character, and I wish he was going to be in the final two movies.

6) Victoria





What a badass!!!
Geez!
I am so glad the movie added action sequences that were not in the book!
And can we say creepy?
While Bella was busy drowning in the ocean because apparently cliffdiving is the most wonderful idea to see Edward and hear his voice, Victoria is swimming towards her, and she kind of reminded me of a shark.
The red eyes probably had a lot to do with it too.
Hmmm...I don't know.
Anyway, after seeing Rachelle Lefevre's (I don't know how to spell her freakin' last name) performance in the movie, I'm almost sad that she is being replaced.
Almost.





Bryce Dallas Howard will be playing Victoria in Eclipse.  She's a whopping one day older than me and a thousand times more successful.
Oh well.
I haven't seen her play a bad guy yet, so this should be fun to watch.

7) Jacob Black
(holy hell, son!)





Hot damn!
I mean...*thud*...
Just...damn!
I can't decide if I'm Team Jacob or Team Edward now!
Please don't put a shirt on.
And please hurry up and turn 18!!
And after you turn 18, please don't put a shirt on!
The same goes for the rest of your wolf pack!





How many well-toned abs can you fit into one movie?!?!
How much drool can one little keyboard take?!?!

8) Hearing Damage

And no, I'm not talking about the result of way too many teeny boppers screaming during the movie the first time Jacob removed his shirt or when Edward slow-walked from his Volvo at the beginning of the movie.

I'm actually referring to the song Hearing Damage by Thom Yorke played during a very pivotal moment during the movie.

It sort of brought everything together nicely before the big climax of the movie.

I don't have a picture to share with you.
Deal with it.

9) Alice's Vision





Good God.
Really?
This was the most lamespice moment of the movie, as depicted in this lamespice picture of Edward and Bella running through the woods together after she becomes a vampire in the future (aka Breaking Dawn).

10) Jane




Dakota Fanning.
Yikes.
I hope I never make you mad!
I'm not particularly fond of your brand of pain!

11) Aro





Delightfully creepy, yet bizarrely charming.

12) Felix





You are huge!
O_o
Daniel Cudmore makes 6'1" Robert Pattinson look like a hobbit!
And Felix kicks Edward's ass!

13) Carlisle





I heart Peter Facinelli!
Carlisle, there is no way you are going to hell!

Okay, I'm gonna wrap this up.
Me and the Julieperk enjoyed watching the movie together twice and laughing at highly inappropriate times (i.e. while Bella was drowning, when Laurent was getting ready to kill Bella, when Jacob jumps through Bella's window) all thanks to Peter Coffin and his fake New Moon trailers/parodies.
New Moon was way better than Twilight.
Eclipse will be here on June 30th!

And I'm still trying not to get too impatient over Harry Potter coming out either.
My friend Tricia posted this video on Facebook, and I stole it (well, not technically since it wasn't hers).

FYI: This might contain spoilers for those of you miscreants who haven't read the books yet!



I'm going to cry like a crazy person when Harry Potter is finished for good.

Well, that's all I have to say for now!
Over and out!

Kellebelle1981 :)
