Open Weekend Post: We just met Stephenie Meyer

Dear LTTers,

Don’t hate us.

But we’re exhausted.

We have so much to share

SO.MUCH.TO.SHARE

We interviewed Stephenie Meyer yesterday. No, scratch that- we hung out with Stephenie Meyer yesterday for four hours.

Yes. You heard that. FOUR HOURS.

We have amazing photos (We’re pretty sure the photographer got some good ones of us stuffing strawberries in our faces & feeding each other grapes) and H-O-U-R-S of conversations to pour over.

But we can’t give that to you today- we just can’t. (Besides since Eclipse isn’t out yet, we have to have those convos approved. And we don’t have the photos yet)

Here are a few other reasons why:

It’s 5:30 pm on Friday night & Moon is about to go to work. UC leaves for the airport in 3 hours- where she’ll fly on a red eye back to Philadelphia (oh yeah, we’re in LA- you can know that now) She arrives at 6 am. The moving truck arrives at her home at 9 am to MOVE HER to a new home. Plus the four sites at the Stephenie interview agreed we needed some time to process, re-listen to our audio & really give the interviews the time & attention they deserve. Seriously- FOUR HOURS OF CONVERSATIONS!

But we will say this: Today was beyond anything we could have ever imagined. Stephenie is just as incredible as we envisioned in our minds- she’s literally one of us- just famouser. (Word copyrighted by Moon&UC 2010) Get ready for EPIC information (straight from the horses mouth) on everything you wanted to know (and A LOT of stuff you never thought about before. Hint: Dick Pattinson used to be some sort of well-known musician)

We appreciate SO MUCH all your texts, calls, tweets, emails, comments, facebook messages, carrier pigeons, prayers & advice as we would have been way more freaked out without knowing we had all of you cheering us on!

We can’t wait to share more details. We love you all!

Xo,

Moon & UC

          AAAAAH I can´t WAIT for your story!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • AussieECfan

    Awww, bless you both :) Sounds like you had terrific fun, and whilst I can’t wait for you both to spill BIG TIME, I can understand why you need the time to digest and recharge. I’d seriously be all kinds of dead if I lived in the US and had been in your positions!

    :)

    Thanks for the update, ladies, and good luck with the move, UC. Wish I was close enough to help (for real – I’m a good packer – mover).

  • superhumanmoron

    Anxiously awaiting the details!!

  • Bea

    Yaaaaaay! Now I’ll have something fun to look forward to on Monday!

  • natashadushi

    yaaaaaaaaay! can’t wait for the pics!

  • Robjunkie

    I’m so happy that you had an amazing time. I totes understand that y”all need time to process it all. This little update is more than enough for now.

    Good luck with the move UC – I know how stressful it can be.

    Heart you guys, hard.

  • Nelle

    Sounds great! No nightmares. No blathering. No peeing in your jorts. So happy for you that it met (exceeded) your expectations. Can’t wait to read all about it!

  • Tigerkitten36

    Ugh good luck with the move, Moon.

    Cant wait for the update next week

  • Somebodyelse

    This just made my day/night soooo much better. Can’t wait to read all about it.

    Also, loving the tag “I want to nap” and “Tired” :P

    Get some rest and process everything! And good luck with the move UC!

  • Doffie

    Congrats, girls! I can’t wait to hear everything.

  • Carrie Jo

    I want DETAILS!!!

    4 hours????? like FOUR HOURS???? O.M.G.!!!!
    SPEECHLESS!!!!!

    and happy for you
    what an amazing experience!!!!

    can’t wait for the details!
    hugs!

  • eatmyjorts

    I am so excited for all the Jorts news! I’ll pray the move goes well. XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

  • http://www.twitter.com/ScienceGeek91 Rob’s slow mo’ strut

    Oh Em Gee you girls have done it! Yayy!
    It’s great to know that Stephenie is just like one of us. Success only comes to the well-deserving people!

    UC, I don’t mean to sound stalkerish a la Edward Cullen style, but I thought you lived in Arizona? Now I know you live in Philadelphia? #badLTT-er Here I thought you were the only person I could say “What’s up Arizona?”

    Anyway, happy moving. I can’t wait to see Monday’s post and the pictures!

    • Obava

      It’s my understanding that UC goes to AZ to visit family (her mother?).

      • Luludee

        It’s the other way around. Moon is from AZ but lives in LA. UC lives in and is from Philly. I think she works in her family’s business.

        • eatmyjorts

          I always thought UC was from Russia, Moon from the Caribbean, & they lived together in a wing of Disneyland aka that set from the Details shoot, where the only clothing allowed was shoes. Shows what I know.

          • Michelle

            I was with you on that eatmyjorts? How wrong we had it!

  • drsaka

    Dear UC and Moon, congratulations on the interview. What an experience! I know that your post will be incredible. Looking forward to it!

  • NotWutheringHeights

    Get some sleep ladies. You’ve done well!

    The details can wait. But not for too long. ;)

  • http://Seventwentysk.com Proudlove

    I’m a long time lurker & I totaly just shed a couple tears reading this. Congratulations: you have both worked so hard, you deserve every second of this!

  • Wendy

    Good luck on the move… I can only imagine how utterly exhausted you are. And Moon, having to go to work right after? Uhg! That must have sucked…

    Congratulations girls! Just soooo freakin excited for you! Can’t wait to hear it broken down.

  • Minderelly9

    Wow. I’m so excited that she gave you that much time for questions. She is such an impressive lady. It’s awesome to know that she loves us as much as we love her! Can’t wait to hear all the deets! Well done girls!

    Good luck with your move, UC!

    #Exclamationpointoverload!

  • tuesdaymidnight

    I have a big dopey grin on my face because I’m so thrilled for both you. :D

    I’m also happy to hear that Stephenie is completely genuine. She always seems that way, but confirmation is nice.

  • MrsKowski

    I am so happy for you both! I’m glad she turned out to be so down to earth and one of us. My goodness I can’t wait to hear why you feel that way!!! YAY!!!

    I really can’t wait to hear how often she ventures to this site!

    I hope your move goes smoothly UC and that you get some much needed rest!

    • Luludee

      They did say that she is literally one of us. A frequent reader and commenter? Let the speculation begin!

      • http://mainericefamily.blogspot.com/ no cool name

        That’s how I took it. Guess we’ll see! It would totally make sense, though – UC and Moon are awesome, we’re all awesome, Stephenie is awesome – awesome attracts awesome.

  • jazzled

    I kinda can’t wait to hear about this party. So jeal, I feel like I wasn’t invited to the popular girl’s slumber party, so my BFF has to give me the DL ; )

  • MyNieceIsaFanRIGHT

    Do you realize how much your status on the cool-o-meter just jumped ????? You can peak out of the closet and wave flags and like EVERYTHING, like even get that sing-songie voice . . . I hung out with SM, I hung out with SM, and she actually talked to me and answered back . . . and don’t forget the nee-nee-niee-niee part too!

    Now you girls get some rest after you zombie through the rest of your weekend – UC make sure NOT to leave that black bag of garbage in the kitchen because the movers will pack it – don’t ask but I know these things. Can’t wait to hear/read more when you girls are all “fresh” and “sparkly” . . .

    by the way, you are my heroes and make me laugh on a daily basis way before I had enough guts to post. Thank you for having a blog that makes even the shyest Twilight site lurkers want to join in . . . you make coming out of the closet (I’m tearing up) so much easier since you GET IT and get it even more when we run back in the closet with that scared look on our face!

    • MyNieceIsaFanRIGHT

      Let’s retype that shall we . . . You can peek out the closet as you peak . . . ok, lame but tried to save it . . .

  • Sue G.

    I am sooooo excited to hear about the meeting. I can’t believe it is over already!

    UC good luck with the move! Enjoy the new house!

  • Lovintherain

    Closing my eyes and waking up on Monday….not really- actually headed out to a swim meet, but a girl can dream.
    Congrats!! Can’t wait to read all the juicy details!

  • misty

    Dear UC and Moon,
    I can’t wait to hear all about the four hour convo Broken Down VF with lots of details Broken Down Detail mag style!
    Congrats!
    Misty

    Ugh. This is KILLING me! I have to wait til Monday? What if my stolen internet connection flubs up by then. And I start my new job (WOOHOO!) on Wednesday. Hopefully I’ll have plenty of downtime to hang out here, but ugh! I’m totally freaking OUT wanting news!! Did Stephenie hire a photographer or was it just you guys taking candids? Did you record any of the time? Ugh I can’t wait!!!!

    • eatmyjorts

      Ha ha, you said flub.

  • efam

    So…I’ve only posted one other time (on the Introduce Yourself post a few weeks ago), and I have to say that I’m SPEECHLESS.

    I cannot wait to hear everything! I’m seriously sooo happy for you guys.

  • Obava

    Wait- you guys didn’t get the owl I sent you?

    Seriously- take your time, ladies. No pressure on getting the info to us. I’ve transcribed interviews before and it took me like 3 hours of work for every 30 minutes of tape. So I can imagine how long it will take you to go through the SM Tapes! I, for one, will patiently wait until after Eclipse to hear your awesome story if that’s what it takes.

    Good job- not only surviving yesterday, but also enjoying it!!

    xo obava

    • Luludee

      Seconded!!
      I’m just still so happy for you guys! I want to shout from the rooftops that my friends (whom I’ve never actually met and don’t even know their real names – NORMAL) got to meet their and so many other people’s hero!

      Can’t wait to hear all about it, but no pressure on you!

    • Sj

      Obava – maybe it was a mistake to Errol as your owl.

      • robsfuturemate

        Hehe! But, I think Errol is better than Pigwigdeon…it could’ve been worse!

  • http://m244robp.wordpress.com m244robp

    Congratulations ladies! You have worked so hard on these two fun websites. You are certainly major assets to this fandom!

    Can’t wait to read your post on your visit. Four hours! Wow!

  • http://www.twitter.com/aramisette Marta

    That’s so amazing! I can’t wait to hear all about it! Good luck on your move, UC. Moving suuuucks. :-)

  • TeamJorts

    Holy Rob’s hair in Twilight, you spent HALF THE DAY chilling with Stephenie Meyer! How incredible and exciting. I feel so proud my two favorite blog writers/podcast creators lived their dream! Congratulations!

    UC I hope your move goes wonderfully!!!! Maybe your new friend Stephenie will send some of the cast to help out. Kellan and Taylor would be excellent movers. :)

  • http://www.twitter.com/antisocialangel fangbanger

    Oh, YAY! I can’t wait to hear all about it. :)

  • Xylem108

    I. Can. Not. Wait! It’s awesome to know SM is just as cool and down to earth as we imagined… But in truth, I think we’ve always known this. After all she did give us the Jacob book in BD, which if you forget about Nessie, Edward and Bella for a minute is one of the funniest things ever written. Oh, and she also dressed Edward in a button down sleeveless shirt and to do that, you must have a sense of humor. MUST!

    Can hardly wait to read all the Dick deets… Again, as in Rob’s apparently famous musician dad, NOT the sparkle peen variety.

    • Sj

      The Book of Jacob…*sigh*.

    • The Old One

      The Dick Deets! Is it going to be revealed that Richard was the fifth Beatle? I can’t wait! Truly this is the most exciting thing in my life right now!

  • owl_ransom

    I am sooooo happy for you guys and I can’t WAIT to hear what you talked about with SM.. yaaaaay!!! and we know RL has to be dealt with too, we’ll be patient :D

  • che

    seriously can’t wait!!!!!!!!!

  • Xylem108

    By the way, if you are like me and at least once had the thought: “Ugh! it’s been two years, Why can’t I get over this freaking teen vampire already?!” You must read this article. It is certifiable proof that we really are NORMAL… And not for fake this time! http://bit.ly/6qBXv6

    • Luludee

      Holy Crow!! That was the most spot on explanation I’ve ever read! It’s sooooooo perfect!
      Thanks for sharing, Xylem!

      • robsfuturemate

        That was spot on! It made me remember why I fell for Edward in the first place! (Yes, I admit I’ve faltered in that area when I fell for Rob.)

        “who thinks you are perfect because you are not Edward Cullen, and thinks Edward Cullen is perfect because he is not anyone at all.”

        Best. Quote. Ever.

        • Xylem108

          @ Robsfuturemate and @luludee.

          IKR. I usually shy away from sharing links because that is spammer behavior, but that article was too good not to share. I love that she separated the three elements of hotness and how what they all have in common is that we want to do them, BADLY!…. ALL OF THEM. ROB, THE VAMPIRE and EDWARD. That would make an interesting foursome… although, I’d be afraid for Rob around the real vampire <— (evidence that I have spent too much time thinking about doing bad things to Rob and also, that I may need to relinquish my "NORMAL" card).

          • robsfuturemate

            No, I would never want to leave Rob alone with a vampire…he hasn’t had that many fight scenes yet!!

      • Xylem108

        You are welcomed.

    • Heidi’sMom

      Yes, one thousand times, yes.

      • Xylem108

        “I’ll have what she’s having”

        -”When Harry Met Sally”

        • robsfuturemate

          Oh, and Xylem, don’t relinquish your normal card…yet!! Unless you were the one yesterday who said they’re fav movie was “Sorority Boys”!

          • Xylem108

            Eek! Nope! That wasn’t me. Yay!!!! I get to hang on to the my card a bit longer.

    • efam

      Um, that was one of the best Twilight article’s I have ever read. I’ve read some explainations that didn’t really hit home like that one did. I just sent this to my bff so she can stop looking at me like a crazy person when I talk about Twilight. Maybe now she will get it!
      Thanks!

      **going to read it again**

    • efam

      You should also check out her other Twilight article…just click on “JW” (her initials below the title of the article), and it will take you to a page that lists her 2 articles. The other article is titled “Twilight. Our personal brand of heroin.”

      We need to find this woman! She’s a genius.

      • robsfuturemate

        Thanks efam! That was a great article! I totally agree with everything she said. Especially about the writing, it’s not the best written story but the story reels you in and keeps you wanting more!

        What a wise woman!

  • http://www.twifans.com/ kimc333

    It was so awesome & glad we could share it together! Love you Moon & UC! I wished we lived by each other so we could hang together every week!

  • TeamJacobEdward

    “Stephenie is just as incredible as we envisioned in our minds- she’s literally one of us”

    *sings to tune of 90s song*
    What if Stephenie was one of us?
    Just a slob like one of us?…

    I can’t wait to hear Stephenie is every bit as cool as we’ve all imagined

    :)

    • Its no irritable grizzly…

      which 90′s song are you singing?

  • surfsister

    um, “literally” one of us! can you imagine being literally one of us AND then dreaming up your ideal man…then having him embodied in perfect form?! can you imagine! that would just be waaaaaaay to cool! except for i think that i`d be `bothered` a lot.

  • Rob’s flaming dashboard

    Like my new name?

    I have been checking in on you dying to hear how it went and so glad you tossed us a crumb! Can’t wait until Monday…

    • robsfuturemate

      Love the new name!! There’s so many good ones to choose from now with all the word vomit!! I was thinking about changing mine too…something more…refined!?

  • aleisha

    I am so happy for you two. And excited to hear everything. Wow, having to go to work after that must suck and moving after it would suck even harder. Get some rest and prepare to be bombarded by comments of 2nd hand happiness on Monday.

    • Luludee

      That was meant to be a thumbs up. Finger/droid fail.

  • http://adriennetrafford.blogspot.com adrienne

    this is so exciting – can’t wait to hear everything and wouldn’t be surprised if it’s so much info that you’ll have to make it into two parts like Breaking Dawn!

  • blvr

    OMG! Even just this tease is such good news, you didn’t just ask about Midnight Sun and cry :)! Meeting celebrities is always hit and miss (as some of them are insufferable) and I’m beyond relieved to know that SM is super cool in person. This is wonderful, Edward-topped, fan-fricking-tastic news.

    Take your time telling us about it, I’m sure we’ll have have to digest it all in small bits anyway in between cringe-worthy breaking dawn news for the next year.

    Great job, ladies!

  • Sj

    You came back! With treats for us all! All is good with the world.

    I’m going to be jumping up and down ’til it’s time for us to gather round your feet all wide-eyed for storytime. I feel like a 3yo who has had too many red jellybeans (must go and change out of LTT tee before I start dribbling). Try & get some rest, or some really good coffee.

  • http://www.twitter.com/pamkinz Pamela

    Eek! I’m excited!!! :D

  • @barnesgirl11

    can.not.wait!!!
