My in-laws are visiting this weekend, so I probably won't be getting around to visit you all as much as I'd like. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and I'll see you soon!

Late breaking news: xtranormal.com (the website where we create these videos) has started charging for them, so this will be Jen's last Something v. Something battle. She promises she's got something else fun and creative up her sleeve to replace it, but for now, make sure you check out these links - it will be your last opportunity!

Great job Susan! Loved it!!! You went the wet dog approach as well, which I loved! Jacob is the winner for me through and through, you are right two words: Jacob shirtless... Bahahaha :)

Susan Fields said...

Jen - You'd never know it from my video, but I'm Team Edward all the way! I guess I had my mind made up from reading the books and couldn't be swayed, though if I'd seen the movies first I might have decided differently. :)

Joanne said...

Enjoy your in-law visit, and have a great weekend!

The Alliterative Allomorph said...

I didn't understand a thing. I've never read the books, or seen the movie :) LOL

Slushpile Slut said...

Jacob shirtless!! Enough said :) Awesome entry Susan!

Creepy Query Girl said...

'I just wish he didn't want to suck my blood'- lol. Too funny. Yeah, the whole jacob- bella's dauther thing was just...weird.

Amy Allgeyer Cook said...

Have a great weekend, Susan!!

Crystal Cook said...

I'm with you Susan, team Edward all the way. The books made up my mind for me waaaaay before shirtless Jacob/Taylor came along.

Cool video too :)

Lynn said...

Jacob falls in love with Bella's daughter?? I love all these videos, and I'll miss seeing them from all the contributors. Everyone did a fantastic job!

Lindsay (a.k.a Isabella) said...

Heehee great vid.:)
So sad they are starting to charge for the vids. Such a shame.

Hema P. said...

This video is making want to read the books, which I have avoided all this while. Too bad we won't get to watch these creative videos any more!

Susan Fields said...

Joanne and Amy - Thanks! You guys have a great weekend, too. :)

Jessica - It's hard to believe you don't know anything about Twilight - I have kids about that age and there was a time it was everywhere I looked. Of course, I ended up getting more hooked on the series than any of my kids. :)

Angela - You're right...enough said! What more does Bella need to know?

Susan Fields said...

CQG - Yeah, I didn't see that whole thing coming with Jacob and Bella's daughter - very weird!

Crystal - I got so mad at Bella in the third book because I thought she might choose Jacob. I was definitely rooting for Edward every step of the way. :)

Lynn - Yes, it's very weird, but Jacob and Bella/Edward's daughter are destined to be together forever. Very strange...

Lindsay - I know, I was just figuring out the whole video thing and now they start charging - it's very sad. I'll miss Jen's Friday battles. :(

Hema - I have to admit, I totally ate up the books. I couldn't put them down, and it's nice to know what all the hoopla is about, too.

Jennie Bailey said...

"The whole bloodsucking thing is a real problem" - I couldn't stop laughing!

Team Jacob all the way - who wants a pale, pasty white guy when you can have a hot native american guy with washboard abs!

MT said...

I still love the way those computer voices put the emphasis on the wrong parts of the sentence. Ha! Great job on that one. It's too bad they're going to start charging.
Have a great weekend. :)

Jackee said...

Get rid of the leech.

Ha! Thanks for sharing. That's a bummer there'll be no more of these. I've been wanting to do one with Jen and now I'll not get the chance.

Have a lovely weekend with the in-laws. I did that last weekend... do you want me to send chocolate??? :o)

Susan Fields said...

Jennie - Based on the movies, I'd probably be Team Jacob, but I read the books first so (believe it or not) I'd have to go with the pale, pasty white guy. Crazy, I know!

Michelle - I know, I love the way the computer voices say things too - that's half the fun!

Jackee - Please, no chocolate! I'm so stuffed from going out to dinner and having dessert at my mom's house last night I can barely move. We're supposed to go out to brunch in a little while - I don't know where I'm going to put more food!

Ann said...

That is too bad, this was fun.
Enjoy your weekend.

Susan Fields said...

Ann - Thanks! I hopy you have a great weekend, too.

Lydia Kang said...

Bronze and butterscotch. Yep, that's Edward.
Sweet! This was so funny.

Susan Fields said...

Lydia - Those are exact quotes from the book. I didn't have to look far to find Bella swooning over Edward. :)

Jingle said...

live and fun video,
thank you for sharing!

Crimey said...

Susan,
I love that she's got to choose between flees and fangs. Awesome. Love these videos.

Sharon K. Mayhew said...

That was totally cool...expect an email from me asking how to make one of these!

Bossy Betty said...

I'm impressed with your video! Hope your weekend is a good one!

Susan Fields said...

Crimey - I know, what a choice, huh?

Sharon - Email me any time and I'll help you all I can. For a quick start, just go to www.xtranormal.com. They have a little ten second tutorial which is enough to get you started. Unfortunately they're charging for them now. :(

Betty - Thanks! You have a good weekend, too!

Susan Fields said...

Jingle - You're very welcome! These videos are so fun to make, I'm going to miss them now that they're charging. :(

Dawn Simon said...

Hilarious! It's so funny because when I read the books, Jacob wasn't even in the contest as far as I was concerned. But once I saw the movie Jacob...different story. ;)

Susan Fields said...

Dawn - I'm totally with you on that. I couldn't understand the whole Team Jacob concept. Then I saw the movies and suddenly I understood. :)

Shannon said...

Great job, Susan! Loved the "I just wish he didn't want to suck my blood" comment. Well done.

I'm oh so lame and didn't get a video done. :(

Theresa Milstein said...

Argh, the Twilight Saga! I can't believe Bella and Jacob are now the most popular baby names.

Too bad they'll be charging for these videos. I've been enjoying them.

Susan Fields said...

Shannon - I know how you feel. I missed last week's battle. Sometimes we just can't do it all...

Theresa - Is Bella really the most popular baby girl name? I had no idea. I know people who have named their dogs Bella, but not their babies. Of course, I don't know too many people who are still having babies at this point in my life.

Carolina Valdez Miller said...

Too, too funny!! Well done, susan. Two words: Jacob shirtless.

Hahaha! That's great.

Somehow I've missed these before now. I'm so sad it's over. But so glad I caught it before the end. Very funny. Good luck with your entry!

~Nicole Ducleroir~ said...

LOL - Awesome video! Bummer the site is charging for its services now. Boo!

Tara said...

Ha! Haven't read/seen Twilight, but the gist of that was funny.

I had company this weekend, too.

Jen said...

Susan you crack me up!!! You're right I never would have guessed!! Sorry it took me so long to come back for a visit!

I actually don't know anything about twilight so I just based it all on looks. Doesn't every girl!

Susan Fields said...

Nicole - I know, I'm so sad about not doing these videos anymore. I was just getting it figured out!

Tara - I read your post about your company. Luckily mine was very quiet. :)

Jen - I can't believe you don't know anything about Twilight and you gave us this challenge anyway! Was it my begging and pleading? Thank you for giving us this one, I had a lot of fun with it.

Paul C said...

I am really enjoying your video scripts. So entertaining!
