Southern Comfort Review on TLS


Jiff and I are LOVING Twifanmom's review of Southern Comfort.  She has been a huge supporter and we could not have asked for a better review!

We swear we didn't pay her...unless Rob porn counts. 

Here's a little bit of what she had to say:

Reviewed by: Twi Fanmom

After scrolling through the list of nominated fics, wanting to read some so that I could be an educated voter, I was immediately intrigued by the title of Southern Comfort.  Hey, I’m a Georgia Girl, so I can easily relate to anything based in the South.  Plus, who hasn’t had a drink made with Southern Comfort, lovingly referred to as SoCo?  I started this story, only putting it down to feed my children and catch a few hours of sleep.  Seeing that a reviewer was needed, I jumped on it, thinking how hard can it be…you’ve just finished reading it and loved it.  Problem is, with seventeen chapters of fantastic, hilarious stuff, I basically wanted to copy and paste the entire story as the review. 

The authors of this story are a fabulously humorous team!  Jiff and JennyKate, both former Southern gals, will have you laughing out loud at the southern mannerisms and terminology of each character.  But the humor, as wonderful as it is, doesn’t overshadow the readers’ ability to feel the emotions of the characters.  One of my absolute favorite parts of this story is the song title they choose for chapter names and the A/Ns at the end.  The humorous, often *ahem* raunchy banter between the two is a must read!  Jiff and JK have been wonderful with review replies and we have bonded through our Cajunward Tweets!

Southern Comfort is based in French Settlement, Louisiana at The Cullen Plantation.  Bella descends upon the Plantation to photograph and write an article for Southern Living Magazine.  Given the geographical location of the story, and the often used Cajun terms, the Cullen family – Esme, Carlisle, Emmett and Edward – is quite different from other characters I’ve experienced in fanfic.  For example, the family uses the terms choux rouge, canaille, faiblesse…forcing Bella to “conclude right then that people need a passport to come down here.”  Don’t worry, JiffyKate, offers a Cajun term dictionary at the end of each chapter!

Bella quickly befriends Emmett & Edward, sharing dinner with them at the restaurant they own.  She discovers that not all pockets are the same.
As we walk inside, a girl with blonde hair pulled up in a ponytail greets us. She asks Emmett where he's been all night. Then she looks at me and says, "Welcome to Hot Pockets!"
When she walks away, I read the back of her shirt. It says, "Is that a gator in your pocket, or are you just happy to see me?"

XOXO,
Jenny Kate♥

FotW at The Lemonade Stand, Rob P0rn, and Southern Comfort

Jiff and I did good.  Southern Comfort made it into the top 5 last week on FotW @ The Lemonade Stand!  If you voted for us, THANK YOU...a million times over.  If you're reading our story, THANK YOU...with a nice *smack to the ass*!  


Any and all support is much appreciated.  


To show you exactly how appreciative I am, I'd like to share my #ToothpickPorn with you...you. are. welcome.






Rob made smoking hot, but he's making toothpicks HOTTER!!  I, for one, am so thankful he's not smoking any more.  I want to be able to fangirl over him when I have purple hair (a nice bright purple) and am living it up at Shady Pines.  

Hopefully, they'll hand out Rob posters for Bingo prizes!

I am just head-over-heels in love with the toothpick...and Rob.  

*le sigh*

Jiff and I started a blog for SoCo!  The creative genius, that is RoseArcadia, designed it for us.  We are backing up our story there; and also posting fic recs, recipes, pictures, etc.  www.jiffykate.blogspot.com - Stop by and visit us!

Hope you're all having a tolerable Monday!  *MWAH*

XOXO,
Jenny Kate♥

Please VOTE for SoCo!!!

My little fic I'm writing with the one and only @jiffsimpson, Southern Comfort, is up on the Fic of the Week poll at The Lemonade Stand this week!  *squeeeeeee* 

I've seriously discovered so many amazing fics from their FOTW polls and reviews, so it's surreal for SoCo to be on their sidebar!  *freaking out a little*  Just being mentioned will be enough, but your vote would be awesome!  So, if you love SoCo...or just love us *cheesy grin*, we'd appreciate you stopping by HERE (http://www.tehlemonadestand.net/) and voting! 

Perhaps you accept bribes?

We could pay in Rob porn...or cookies?  Oooooo, or SoCo Sours?  Jiff and I had one on Saturday when we went and watched SWATH and it was delicious!

SWATH was AH-mazing, btw!!  We could not have been more proud of our girl.  She did good.  But that's a whole 'nother blog post.

So, stop by TLS, go to their sidebar, and click on SoCo...easy peasy! 

We already love you guys forever, whether you vote or not. :)  We also LOVE Nic (@nicffwhisperer) for nominating us and pimping our story!  Thank you sooooo much, Nic!!

Southern Comfort, Cannes, Cosmopolis, and Thrusting Rob...read with caution.

HOLY GEEZ!! Has it seriously been that long since I posted. *double checks* Yep. It's official. I am a BLOGfreakinFAIL. *hangs head*


In my defense, I've been busier than a two-bit whore on nickle night!! Like seriously over-the-top busy. I planned two bridal showers, a wedding, and a birthday party...PLUS, work (and RL, in general) has been a royal biotch.


So, what do you owe this "honor" you ask? Well, Jiff and I are writing a fic! Annnnnnd, well, basically, I'm here to shamelessly pimp our story. Oh, and of course to say HI...and I love you guys hard. Really, I do. I also love this blog and sometimes it makes verrah sad when I come over here and see that I've basically deserted it. I swear I'm going to do better. Not sure I can come through on those promises right now though, because Jiff and I spend almost all of our free time writing about Cajunward...and French Settlement, LA...and green trees. *sigh* It's like my happy place right now.


Most of you know what a fic hoor I've become over this past year, but I never thought I would write my own! The more we talked about our little "plot bunny", the more we decided that it had to be written! Everyone needs a Cajunward in their life! And who can say no to a little southern hospitality?? *wink wink*


Anyway, so here we are tit-deep in writing our very own fan fic. It has been SOFA KING much fun. We laugh a lot...at ourselves. Thank goodness for some amazing pre-readers...@Smitten_RPattz and @allthingsHHH (aka our fan fic sensei...and Forks roomie!)


On a side note, Smitten is coming all the way from CANADA down to OKLAHOMA to spend a few days with Jiff and I!!! How freakin' exciting is that?!?! We're stoked.  I can't wait to squish her...and slap her ass. 


What?  I'm into that sort of thing. *wink*


If you're interested in reading our fic, you can follow this link - Southern Comfort (Profile link - JiffyKate)


We just posted chapter 2 yesterday, so it's in the beginning stages. Good news for those of you who are anti-WIP, we have 9 chapters written and are starting on chapter 10 tonight. So, there is no chance that we won't finish it...or that we won't post on time. Eventually, when we get the entire story written, we'll probably start posting more than twice a week. For now, we're posting updates on Saturdays and Wednesdays.


In other news, Rob and Kristen will both be at Cannes!!! I'm just over-the-moon excited about that! Both Cosmopolis (trailer at the bottom of post, in case you missed it) and On The Road will be at Cannes...wonder if they will be together or if they'll be working their respective movies?? I'm hoping for some serious facetime...and some Robsten moments!

*fingers crossed*

*putting on my lucky fangirl panties*

OH!!  I almost forgot (lack of oxygen to my brain from watching this).  If you haven't seen Thrusting DuRob, you MUST!!  Take all medical precautions...if you have heart problems or are pregnant, you should watch with caution.  Everyone else, be aware that instant pantie combustion may ensue.

Follow this link for Thrusting DuRob - Go HERE

Hope everyone is doing great!! Find me on Twitter if we're not already friends over there...but I should come with a warning or disclaimer or something. You just never know what I'll tweet. O.o

XOXO,
Jenny Kate♥

Just Because I'm Not Here Doesn't Mean I Don't Love You...OR Rob.

I'm making a conscious attempt to come back to blogging.  I miss it SOOOOO much and I miss interacting with everyone.  I've posted a couple of times over on my personal blog this week, so I thought it was time to post a little sumthin' sumthin' over here.

Although, I've been MIA for a few months, it doesn't mean I don't love you guys...or Rob...or Twilight.  If we follow each other on Twitter (which I hope we do), you know that my love still stands. 

Back in October, my big boss, The Gray-Heard Fox, made our whole office switch over to one gigantic server.  As an increased safety measure, he had some new software installed that essentially can track when you're on the Internet and WHERE you're at while you're there.  SUCKS.  Big stinky hairy balls.  I have always done the majority of my blogging from work, so this newly installed "Internet babysitting" put a kink in my schedule.

However, it just makes me TOO sad to stop by this blog or my personal one and feel like I've abandoned them.  If you're a blogger, you know that your blog feels like your personal space...kinda like you're "baby".  You start them and nurture them and watch them grow.  Sorta.  So, I'm going to try to blog more frequently...at least occasionally.

Who's stoked for BD1 on DVD/Blu-Ray next Friday?!?!  WHUT?! WHUT?!  I can BELIEVE that Summit is giving us the DVD already.  What has come over them?  They're never this nice to us.  I'm feeling suspicious.  But I'll take what they give me.  I'm still pissed that there are no reported "commen-tree" on the extras.  That is what MADE the Eclipse DVD.  I've watched it more than the movie.

So, where are you buying your DVD/Blu-Ray?  What's the extra and/or freebie you're wanting the most?

Jiff and I are heading over to Hastings for our Blu-Ray and we're getting some cute BD1 luggage tags!  Then we're probably buying our DVD from Wal-Mart for their Wedding Dress cover...and I think I heard you get a poster or something like that. 


You can check out BreakingDawn-TheMovie.com to find a midnight release party closest to you!

Love you guys like a back-alley whore loves crack.

Twilight Tuesdays

Summit is doing us a kindness and they are going to re-release Twilight, New Moon, and Eclipse one night each during the month of November!  They will play in theaters across the country starting on November 1st, with added bonus features such as; behind the scenes footage, comic con footage, and interviews with the cast!!


I'm kinda stoked for the Twilight Tuesday events. It's been a long time since I saw Twilight at the theaters (6 times). Almost 3 years ago...where has the time gone?

Oh, right. Fangirling. Obsessing. Drooling over The Precious.

Time well spent, if you ask me.

I don't know about you, but I'm not ready for this ride to be over...I'd sign up for another 3 years.

Where do I re-enlist?

Check your local theaters (through Fandango, possibly) and see if they are playing at a theater near you!

TwilightMoms.com has all the details. (click here)

#FORKS2011 - PSA

As I'm sorting through my 569 photos of my #FORKS2011 trip, I'm trying to decide how to post them and give you guys the full story without boring you to death with a major pic spam. So, I've decided to break them up into several blog posts. This first one consists of pictures from my iPhone. We all know that the real story is on the iPhone. You take pics with your iPhone (or other smart phone) that you wouldn't/didn't/shouldn't/couldn't take with your regular camera.

Think of these next few pictures as my personal Public Service Announcement for traveling to Forks. 

Plan to *squeeeeee* a lot at road signs.  I don't know what it is...just the tangible fact that you're in the land of Twitardia or what, but it initiates this frenzy...you really lose all control.


Go to Sully's.  They give you fangs with your Bella Burger and/or your Twilight Punch.  BUT be careful.  Fangs lead to hours of ridiculousness...and you could get black listed at Sully's.  I'm guess mine and Jiff's names are on there..."those that shall never be allowed to dine here again...from henceforth..." or something like that.

Frisking is what?  Good.  Right.  Do it.  LOTS.  And document it.  You'll thank yourself later.  And the weird dude in the parking lot will thank you too.  I was wondering if perhaps they have a surveillance camera set up to catch all the shenanigans that take place in the parking lot of the Forks Chamber of Commerce?


Go to the Cullen House...right next door to the Chamber of Commerce, if for nothing else than to participate in more shenanigans in Carlisle's Office...and take cheesy pictures in front of the graduation caps.  And the dude that runs the joint is really nice...and they have a pretty white kitty (so, heads up if you're allergic).

EVERYONE capitalizes on Steph's little story...and I mean EVERYONE...from the Forks Hospital to the little shack that sells firewood on your way out of town (Twilight Firewood...really?!  I highly doubt it was called that prior to 2008.)

Re-enact as many scenes as possible.  Come on.  When else will you be able to just walk to the edge of a forest with a cardboard Edward and say "say it...out loud" and your friends just laugh hysterically with you?!  Let me tell you.  NEVER.  So, take advantage of your location.
(while watching Twilight in our motel room that morning, we decided that this is how the "Distract Me" scene should have went down.)
If you run across a wooden lumberjack in the Forks Motel parking lot, it is NOT mounted properly.  Leg hitch with caution...especially while intoxicated.


Don't poop in The Hoh.  It's frowned upon.


Wherever you are...driving down the 101, venturing out into the Olympic National Forest, cruising through La Push...HONK FOR DEER. It's crucial.


We've found that they are quite lethargic and just asking to be hit.  So, do your good deed for the day and save a deers life.  It could be Edward's next meal.

This concludes my PSA for today.

No Pocket Edwards or deer were harmed during these events.  However,  a wooden lumberjack may be a tad bit more unstable.
