I got a kick out of reading everyone’s guesses for my “Which One is the Lie” post from yesterday! But you are all anxious to know the answer. 😄 I put some thought into my choice of facts–I picked truths that didn’t sound quite right and made up a lie that could be believable with knowledge of other evidence.
Here’s a reminder of the choices:
A. I have seen all the Twilight movies and own several pieces of merchandise.
B. Last summer I developed a phobia for scorpions.
C. The Two Towers if my most favorite LotR’s film.
And the false fact is!…….. *cough* drumroll please *cough*…..
Fact B: Last summer I developed a phobia for scorpions.
Yep. False. While indeed, last summer I was stung in my sleep by a scorpion, I did not develop a phobia for them. I purposefully hunt for them in my backyard every few nights with a black light and I do not have conniptions or issues with looking at them or getting very close to them. Phobia free, I’m happy to say!
Fact C is true fact: The Two Towers is my most favorite of the Lord of the Rings movies… because it was basically the most flawless film out of the trilogy. I have so much love for that movie, too. ❤ And yep, this fact is public knowledge, as written here in my Lord of the Rings post. 😀
So…that means that Fact A is also true.
I found it amusing and awesome that Fact A was the most guessed answer as being false! Y’all are awesome. I know a couple of you are thinking at this moment, “THAT FACT IS TRUE? ARE YOU A TWILIGHT FAN? YOU HAVE MERCHANDISE?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?”
I can’t say that I’m a Twilight fan. But I have seen all the movies and I DO have two pieces of Twilight-themed merch! Which basically means I don’t hate it because of reasons.
So here’s the scoop on why I don’t hate the Twilight Series.
Two years ago I had the pleasure of flying by myself to Washington State to visit family! Not only did my Aunt Rachel share her Twilight movies with me while I was there, but she and my grandma agreed to drive me to visit the real Forks town, where Twilight takes place. (These are photos I took on location!)
It was an entire day trip but very awesome. I got to see the buildings, forests, things from the movie Native America reservations, and La Push beach that the stories took place on. It was and incredible day of sight-seeing!
In Forks, I bought two pieces of Twilight merchandise: a white t-shirt with heart outlines (made from blood of course) with the Forks town name–it is my favorite pajama shirt!–and a baseball with the letter C printed on it, for Cullen. Because the Cullens play super baseball. 😄 I keep it on my shelf next to my Walking Dead and Disney merchandise so I always remember that I got see the edge of America with my family…and be where vampires and werewolves supposedly roam. It was a wonderful vacation.
As to the movies…the first is the worst. There’s some horribly written dialogue in that movie. Gag me with a spoon. But I rather enjoyed the last film as it had a surprising end twist that just about knocked me from my chair…and most people will miss it because they’ll never watch Twilight. Plus…Anna Kendrick! I can’t say I would recommend Twilight to anyone (*cough* GO WATCH HARRY POTTER INSTEAD *cough*), as the romance/relationship is pretty dysfunctional and immature but I’m glad that I got to watch the movies to connect with my more distant family.
And I guess I can say I’ve stood where a vampire supposedly stood, which is cool. I can’t say that for most other movies I’ve seen. And vampires are awesome…though it’s a general rule that I prefer them as menacing, not sparkling. 😄 #KindaTeamEdwardButNotReally #IGuessImMoreTeamVampire #TeamVampire
