The Twilight cast visits Belgium. Wait where?

I asked LTT friends Alice & Bella from funny, snarky site NotanAddikt (RIP!) to take meticulous notes when Twilight descended upon Belgium. Yes, that’s right- the land of the waffles, beer and monks got a Twilight actor more famous than Philadelphia did (Sorry Jackson & wolf that came with him) Here is their tale:

Dear Summit,

We don’t know who bribed you into sending Ashley Greene and Xavier Samuel to Belgium, of all places, for the Eclipse premiere, but we sure are greatful. We don’t usually get many US celebrities around here in Belgium. We may be home to the capital of Europe, the best chocolate in the world and a different brand of beer for every day of the year, but the closest we usually get to Hollywood celebrities is when they jet by on their way from London to Paris. We’re not a particularly proud or easily offended nation, so we shrug and turn to YouTube for our Tinseltown fixes. But holy canoly, heavenly forces gathered, planets aligned and Sauron himself must have sent a recommendation letter for Belgium to you, because here they were!

After some resistance from Alice (“I don’t want to go stand between throngs of shrieking teens to see celebrities! I’m better than that!” – she’s such a Bella sometimes) we finally decided to brave the rabid Belgian twihards and purchased tickets for the three-movie marathon in Antwerp that Ashley and Xavier and three-thousand Belgian and Dutch twiteens would attend. (It was the spotting of crazies that finally did Alice in.) We were told that Ash and Xavier would arrive at 7pm, but were recommended to come around 4pm to make sure we got good spots and enjoyed the animation beforehand. Here’s how our day went down…

4:00pm: Alice and Bella are happily shopping in downtown Antwerp.

5:30pm: Alice and Bella are still happily shopping in downtown Antwerp…

6:00pm: Alice and Bella have a long debate about whether to just go for a quick dessert at Wagamama where they had lunch, whether to get another dinner (gotta get that protein in there!), or whether to get their lazy post-menstrual asses to the theatre and just survive on an XL bucket of popcorn and chips.

We obviously had the red mullet special

6:30pm: After half an hour of debating what to do – in which they could have easily had the dang dessert (white chocolate cheese cake with raspberry coulis, y’all) – they realize that it’s just an ordinary weekday for all other normal Belgians, and they’ll be stuck in traffic on the way to the theatre and will likely miss the arrival of Ashley and Xavier (and let’s face it, movie snacks are also deliciously good in all their crappiness).

6:35pm: Alice and Bella hit themselves and each other over the head for their stupidity, while rushing through the supermarket to get big bottles of water to avoid forking out a fortune for expensive tiny diet cokes in the theatre to compensate the excessive salt intake in the near future.

6:45pm: Alice and Bella are stuck in traffic.

Of course an Eclipse poster had to whisk by on a bus to remind us of what we were about to miss

6:50pm: Alice and Bella realize they have never been to the theater in Antwerp, and hence don’t exactly know where it is. Bella works up the balls to ask a bald guy in a convertible where the theatre is at the red light. Bald guy flirts with Alice and Bella. Alice and Bella get directions and take off with screeching tires.

Does Belgium throw an Eclipse event to rival the US!? Find out after the jump!

7:00pm: Alice and Bella are lucky and find a great parking spot in a creepy secluded parking lot where they can change into their fabulous LTT t-shirts amidst heroin syringes and dead bodies dumped here and there.

6:50pm: Alice and Bella take a quick picture before facing the madness that is awaiting them.

(UC Note: You too can look this hot if you buy an LTT Tshirt)

Throngs of Belgian teen girls have flocked to the red carpet area. They don’t seem particularly rabid or crazy (much to our disappointment) but there are simply many of them, so we head inside and find a good enough spot near the stage where Ashley and Xavier will receive some kind of award or something.

All perfectly normal

That's not even a real tattoo. amateurs!

Our own tiny jortspack! But srsly… Is this all you’ve got lowlands?

7:10pm: Alice and Bella are extremely happy they haven’t been standing there from 4pm since the announced twilight ‘animation’ is just the dude who almost got that job at the local radio station shouting “Are you excited to see a certain…*checks paper*… Riiiiileeyyyyy???”, followed by tons of screams and the people surrounding us wondering “Was Riley that wolf?” (Alice and Bella bite their tongues multiple times). Well that and announcing like every 5 minutes that they are really REALLY close now (add one ‘really’ every 5 minutes).7:15pm: No sign of Ashley and Xavier. Fashionably late, as expected of them. At this time Ashley probably woke up from her Jetlag nap in her 5 star Brussels retreat.

7:30pm: Still no sign of Ash and Xav. Alice and Bella are not particularly patient people.

7:45pm: Still no sign of Ash and Xav. C’mon now, people, we’ve got a movie we’ve already seen a hundred times to catch.

7:50pm: Ear-deafening screeching erupts outside. They have arrived! Ashley and Xavier do their red carpet thingy – autographs, posing for pictures, short interviews here and there, explaining to our retarded press who the crap they are. Fortunately for us, they arrive inside pretty quickly and are ushered to a small stage in front of a giant Eclipse poster. Somehow, whoever organized this forgot to order a mike, so Ashley and Xavier just stand there on the stage waving and mouthing ‘Hi’ and ‘Thank you’ to the audience, surrounded by a bunch of unknown and hence unimportant people in suits. Very ‘Snow white and Prince Charming in the disney parade’ -ish.

They're really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really close now people!

You wished I wore the outfit from what ad, you say?

They are presented with a big metal star with their name engraved in it (the ‘best B-list Twi-actors we could get’ award? the start of our very own Antwerp walk of fame? a silly souvenir of which Ashley thought ‘I wish they’d gifted me with a box of Godiva truffles instead’? So many questions, so little people who know what the eff they’re doing…) To top it all off, they send up a waiter with glasses of champagne to the stage, of which Ashley and Xavier sip politely and uncomfortably. Suddenly Ash and Xav are whisked off the stage and… that’s it.

8:00 pm: Mayhem ensues as people try to get to the bathroom, closest snack counter and to the right room of the 12 different rooms that are showing the Twilight marathon. We’re just happy to be finally able to sit down, relax and have some plaid food.

8:30 pm: Twilight is finally starting. And we’ve got two devoted fake members of the Cullen clan in all their team Edward-tees-and-crest-necklaces glory sitting next to us.
8:40 pm: Edward enters the cafetaria. Girls scream. We’re not happy campers.
8:40pm – 0:45am: Teens have been remarkably quiet for the remainder of the movies.

0:45am: Ash and Xav walk in the theater after the radio-dude had to come ask the audience to show a lot of enthousiasm. Only here do Twi actors need a crowd worker, only here... Ash and Xav answer the same questions they had to answer in the other 12 rooms. And the applause already died out before they left the room, even though Ashley was a good sport and asserted that the Belgian audience totally topped American audiences. Myeah… I don’t think we’ll be seeing them here again soon…

Ashley brought along her best pout; the one Rob labeled pout #53

1:00am: FINALLY. What it’s all about: Eclipse. Devoted Cullen clan member next to Alice already falls asleep after 15 minutes. Amateurs!

3:30am: We’ve swooned, almost cried happy tears (don’t even ask which scene) and left the theater in a post-coital-like bliss.

4.30am: We’re ready to go to sleep, if only the stupid rooster and birds would STFU.

10.30am: ready to go to work to make up for our lost morning aka emailing back and forth over the awesomeness of Eclipse and ordering tickets for the next day.

Even bigger marathon next year? Defs yes, but that time we won’t skip dessert, not even for Bronson Pelletier!

Love,
Alice & Bella

Oh Poor Bronson! Burrrnnn! Is it just me or are European Twilight fans better behaved? What is it? The language barrier? European tattoo artists can’t master “Quil clout lay” in ink? Americans are just crazier? (Probably) Also… oh heyyyyy Xavier!

Did you see our two cute Belgian friends in their LTT shirts!? We want to feature YOU in YOUR shirt! We’ve been collecting them as they’ve been email in- so send us a pic of you in your shirt. Just smile pretty or be creative (EX: Leg hitch your dog)! We can’t wait to see your shining face!

Our internet game is ridiculous: LTR, The Forum, Twitter, The Store

    Wow!!! So glad to finally see pics!
    You chicas were right, Ashley’s dress was adorable!
    And, duh, Xav is effing hawt.
    God, I wish something like that would happen here!!
    Then again, they’d probably never come to Brisbane, it’d be Melbourne or Sydney, like always.
    UC is right, Belgians seems so chillax!
    Although I gotta say, our fellow cinema-goers were pretty well behaved… for the most part.

    Thanks for sharing, lovelies!
    xo

    • http://notanaddikt.blogspot.com Bella_NaA

      Well, we never thought any Twilight cast members would come to Belgium, so there! They usually go to Paris or London, maybe Amsterdam, but never Belgium. We got lucky because the London premiere was a few days later, I guess. So there’s hope for Brisbane!

  • http://notanaddikt.blogspot.com Bella_NaA

    I knooooow! We’d so hoped for a few crazies, but nope… tiny jortspack was all we got. I guess Belgians aren’t that, erm, creative. Alice and I did NOT feel normal. :-)

    • Xylem108.9

      That letter is more than kind of awesome! And you girls look absolutely beautiful in your LTT gear (Alice looks like a long lost Pattinson sister). I love the way you guys describe the awkwardness in the staging. That’s stuff is always fun to watch specially when the holy trinity goes abroad and Rob tries to joke… Which of course always fails, luckily, he’s pretty and so people alwyays laugh with him. What was I saying again?… Oh, yeah, great letter!!!

  • Sassysmart

    You ladies are GORGEOUS!!!!

    And this story is full of awesome.

  • Stacey

    Bella and Alice, I loved the story of your adventure to see Ashley and Xavier. Thank you for the wonderful pictures, mostly the ones of Xavier. :0)New crush!

    You two looked great in your LTT tees! Definitely the most fashionable there!

  • natashadushi

    Red mullet! Lekker!!!! THis is a epic letter! I laughed my heart out reading the letter and what a great pictures! I hope me and Dutch Josie can write the same letter but from Dutch pov for Breaking Dawn. I think that Summit will send the actors who will play Eliazar and Jenks to Amsterdam LMAO

    And yes we Europeans are better behaved LOL

    • NotWutheringHeights

      Eliazar and Jenks! So awesome.

      Great letter girls. You shone in that sedate crowd.

  • TeamJacobEdward

    Is it just me, or does it look like Ashley is wearing a black bra around her waist? (Yes I realize it’s a bow.) Maybe it’s my phone…

    • http://notanaddikt.blogspot.com Bella_NaA

      Myeah, the bow may be up for ‘interpretation’…

  • Sj

    So Belgium has placid teenage Twifans and big carparks just lying around empty in the middle of the cities – now that is plenty crazy for me, the mini-jorts pack nearly tipped me over the edge.

    PS I bet Ashley was killing herself for forgetting to take her mousekateer ears, she could have given you a fab rendition of Minnie Mouse. That dress?!

    • http://notanaddikt.blogspot.com Bella_NaA

      Bahaha, indeed, some Minnie Mouse ears would have made a GREAT combination!

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

    “the ‘best B-list Twi-actors we could get’ award?”
    Bahahaha, I had to laugh at this, but then I felt bad ’cause I adore Xavier.
    Great letter ladies! Looks like you’ve had fun. And yes Belgians twi-fans do seem like a tamer bunch….God knows if the poor stars were sent here to Dhaka, only 5 people would recognize them. Which is why they probably didn’t release Eclipse here…hmmm now it makes sense.

  • FacePunch

    The Red Mullet special! Muahahaha! Move over, mushroom ravioli!

    Such a funny tale! Very nicely written. Quite a journey, and when you got to that creepy parking garage I was beginning to get nervous.

    Ash and Xav looked very pretty, as always. And if any crazed Twi-hards try to tackle them in the future they can always use those plaques as ninja throwing stars. “WhooshwhooshWHOOSH! WACK!!”

    “Are you excited to see a certain…*checks paper*… Riiiiileeyyyyy???”

    LMAO

    • natashadushi

      “Are you excited to see a certain…*checks paper*… Riiiiileeyyyyy???”

      That was sooooooooo funny! hahahaha

  • AJ

    I love Ashleys dress. It’s so Jackie O

    • Alice_NaA

      I love love love the dress too! I don’t understand why every pretty actress has to wear a mega short glittery outfit and ridiculously high heels these days…

      • Sj

        That does score a point for the dress, not a fan of the tight mini dresses. And KStew complins about wearing heels but turns up in ridiculously high ones. Don’t get it.

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

    How come EVERYTHING looks cooler in Europe!? Sheesh. Love this letter.

    • http://notanaddikt.blogspot.com Bella_NaA

      To us, everything seems to look cooler in the US. Guess the grass is always greener…

      • natashadushi

        WORD!! lmao

      • ChillinWithCullens

        EPIC!! Alice and Bella ftw! Everything really does look cooler in Europe – the menu, even the bus! And you girls look adorable! Soooo Jealous of you seeing Ashley and Xavier in person, even if it was a tad awkward, and totes 2nd hand embarrassing. Love the fake tat and the jorts!

  • Stacey

    I forgot to ask if you two liked Eclipse?

    I finally saw it on Saturday! (Thanks to everybody who let me know, what to watch for this weekend! I don’t think I missed anything, because I didn’t blink through the whole thing!)

    I, of course, loved it. (Even with the wigs!) More, importantly my friends who were questioning my sanity, loved it more (maybe). They were gushing about it afterwards and not laughing at my jokes about jorts and Carlise disappearing accent! (Still love ya Mike Dexter!)

    We even had sitting next to us a dad who was going absolutely nuts next to us during the fight scenes. He was actually yelling, “No you didn’t!” when heads were being ripped off. His daughter was absolutely embarassed! It was awesome!

    My problems with it were tiny, like not enough Yorkie and Newton. And whatever Bella was wearing to the party. Wouldn’t Alice have forcibly crammed her into a nice and expensive dress? Luckily, every single Edward scene made up for it! And Riley too!

    Honestly, in terms of celebrity boy crushes Pattinson is still #1, but Xavier is now in the top 5. You better start bringing it Somerhalder and Mr. Shue, because even confederate Jasper and Kellan’s abs are gaining on you!

    OMG, this is so long! I am so sorry! You guys are the only ones I can say this to, because believe me, nobody else wants to hear it in my RL!

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

      “Luckily, every single Edward scene made up for it! And Riley too!”
      THIS!
      I totes loved the creepy way Riley says to Edward in the end, “You’re dead.”

      And your comment is even more win because you mentioned Rob, Xavier, Ian Somerhaulder AND my fav Mr. Shue ALL in one place. ( A new Glee-watcher. So please pardon my excitement at all things Glee.)

      • Stacey

        I love my Ian and Mr. Shue, but Xavier completely had me as soon as he walked out of the bar at the beginning of the movie!

    • http://notanaddikt.blogspot.com Bella_NaA

      Of course we LOVED Eclipse! Hands down the best movie of the three! All the actors performances were such an improvement with respect to the previous movies, but the story generally was very well brought to life on screen. My next life project is to hug David Slade!

      • Stacey

        It was really great! The fact that my friends liked it so much reinforced to me how great a job that Slade did! Now I need to wait until it comes to DVD to see it again! Unfortunately, my husband had a rough time w/ the baby. I came home to a half naked infant in a swing and a husband crying in a corner. True story. I have a feeling I won’t be getting out by myself anytime soon!

        • Midnight_Cyn

          Stacey, its okay! Once in a while it is a GOOD thing to give the hubs a small glimpse in to the hardest job in the world..being a MOM and a wife! He’ll definately appreciate you more now..plus its always good to “remind him” after you’ve had a rough day and he starts complaining about “his” day…trust! :)

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

          I have BEEN THERE (have four little ones – sort of am still there). Trust me, it will get better. It is TOUGH to be in the middle of it, I know.

          • Stacey

            The sad thing is that I only left him with the baby! The three-year old stayed with her grandparents. He might have been hiding in the closet covered in stickers if she stayed home too! Then, the cranky pants had the nerve to say that I he hoped I enjoyed my dirty vampire movie boyfriend, while he was suffering with the crying baby. Argh!

          • WakeUpDead25

            I gotta say I totally respect you ladies that have kids. I only have to deal with a husband, a cat and a job and sometimes I wanna rip my hair out.

  • LissyLoo

    Girls, I love it!!
    Too cute in ur t-shirts!
    I love that everyone was so well behaved!
    Maybe I’ll come to belgium for next premiere!
    Xox

  • Robjunkie

    You guys are adorbs. Too cute.

    Here in South Africa people are also pretty blase and laid back, or lazy, whatever. They don’t even dress up in any merch. There are no long lines at the theatres, it’s all very civilised. I’m pretty sure the cashier at the theatre, where I’ve now seen Eclipse 3 times, was judging me. Sigh, I defs don’t feel normal here.

    I guess Americans just aren’t so afraid to let their freak flag fly.

    • http://notanaddikt.blogspot.com Bella_NaA

      Maybe all the Twihards were distracted by the World Cup?
      *sits and thinks for a minute* Nah… that probably wasn’t it.

      Did you survive the invasion of crazy Dutch supporters? No offense to the dutchies here, but we Belgians are kind of freaked out by all their ‘Orange crazy’!

      • natashadushi

        As a Antillian living in Holland I can say that I was also creeped out of so much orange. I even made a picture of an “orange street” a few blocks of my own street. Here is the pic http://twitpic.com/24elnd

        • http://notanaddikt.blogspot.com Bella_NaA

          Oh my, that’s a LOT of orange! I just can’t imagine seeing such an outburst of national pride here in Belgium! Then again we never qualify for the world cup so there’s no reason…

      • Robjunkie

        The Dutch supporters were cool. I loved their crazy orange-ness. Felt so bad for them last night.

    • hepburn

      Are there even any merch here in South Africa? I don’t think I’ve seen anybody wear anything Twi- related… The only Twilight related stuff we see is the movie posters. I love the idea of wearing an LTT t- shirt and have it guaranteed that no South African will ‘get it’

      And Bella_NaA the dutch supporters are a bit of a rowdy bunch but so was every other footie supporter. I love the oranje craziness! I was a full on Spain supporter last night, so glad they won. :)

      Summit, how about some promo in SA? The actors would actually love that they can leave their earplugs at home. Nobody will scream, maybe sing, blow a vuvuzela but no screaming. Promise.

      Was the screaming during the movies done by American fans first? That now every fan around the world thinks its ok, cause I’ve never understood it. Noone screams here or claps.

      • TeamSeth

        Yay Spain!

    • TeamSeth

      Wait, where in SA?! I was in Cape Town with FrightenedFlips for the premiere. We were at the Spain/Portugal game then hauled through post-game traffic to see the midnight showing. People did scream in our theater when the title screen came up, but the rest of the film was tame. I had to work hard to control my giggles when the bed was indeed the golden horror described in the book. I wish we’d seen you cuz we were rocking our LTT (Leg Hitch 2010 and Tweed Serious) shirts and it would’ve been epic to meet another LTTer while abroad (I’m American, went for the World Cup. Spain supporter woot woot!).

      • TeamSeth

        premiere = midnight showing

      • hepburn

        I live in Cape Town but made sure to avoid the tweens in the theatre so went to a late show the day after the premiere. I would have definitely approached you if you were wearing an Ltt t- shirt!

        And I could forgive the gold bedsheets when I saw that ugly ring, then I soon forgot about the ugly ring when the next shot was of Edwards shy grin. I’ll just make sure to blink when I know the ring shot will come on in my next viewing. I also closed my eyes during the Jacob kiss, so have to keep them peeled next time to.

        Hope you enjoyed your time in SA! :) I think I might be suffering from post- WC blues now, can’t remember what I did to pass the time before football games.

        • TeamSeth

          hehe, I know what you mean about post world cup blues! It was disappointing to come back home and all the Sports sections were talking about Lebron James and not Sneijder or Villa (or Casillas mmm). Oh well, the US will never be as into soccer as the rest of the world.

          I did enjoy SA! Cape Town was the best! i even tried some snoek and chips (and decided to stick to the hake from now on). Got lost driving in Joburg and it was a bit stressful, but we found our way to the airport in time for our flight. And went to Kruger… which is just surreal. So amazing, the excitement of it hasn’t worn off. Felt like such a privilege to be among the animals like that.

          • Midnight_Cyn

            Sounds SO wonderful!! Missed you TS..glad you had a great time!!

          • hepburn

            It’s so true the best looking sportsmen are definitely football players! Makes watching the beautiful game so much more fun lol.

            The Kruger is definitely something that cannot be explained, I’ve only been there on two separate occasions, any other time I saw a lion has been at a Zoo or on National Geographic lol. Glad to hear you had a fab time in SA and enjoyed typical Capetonian cuisine! :)

          • TeamSeth

            I did! Oh, and I had the most amazing cocktail at Julep. If you’ve not been, you must go. It’s just down the alley/street off of Long at the corner of the irish pub.

          • hepburn

            I’ll definitely check that place out! Would be a nice change to my usual hang out, Fiction on Long. :)

          • TeamSeth

            Just saw they have Happy Hour R20 cocktails 5-8 Tue-Sat and all night Mon! What a deal!

          • Sj

            Dear TS – I love that we now have an international bar reviewer right here on LTT. Where to next? Will be so helpful for the LTT world tour for BD.

      • Stacey

        It sounds like you had a great time! What a wonderful trip!

    • natashadushi
      • http://notanaddikt.blogspot.com Bella_NaA

        Haha, who knows! There’s also abbey cheese, and don’t forget the Westvletere abbey beer which was elected best beer in the world! (I forget by whom, hopefully someone important)

  • Pinky

    Fantastic letter! You ladies are adorable and hilarious.

    I’m not sure if I could handle the tameness of the Belgium crowd. My life wouldn’t be complete without hearing a movie goer scream ‘dumbass’ whenever Bella comes on the screen.

  • Midnight_Cyn

    THANKS LADIES! One of the many reasons I love love love this site is that I get to live vicariously (sp?) through everyone’s adventures…(whoa weirdness…phone call..name pops up on TV.. “Taylor, S” and of course I am thinking Taylor Swift!) Yeah I need a life…
    Peter F on LIVE w/Regis (already admitted I need a life don’t judge) he looks sooo “rough” (in a good way) scruffy hair and some facial hairiness…lookin good PF…..
    Happy Monday..(yeah right)…. :)

    • Midnight_Cyn

      P.S. I am alittle (alot) concerned about Peter… he was wearing a jean jacket that seriously looked like it might be his wifes!! It had what appeared to be cutout then glued on appliques on the shoulders??? WTH???

      • TeamSeth

        Yikes! That is worrisome

    • Obava

      Good morning, Cyn!

      • Midnight_Cyn

        Good Morning to you also! :) Hope you had a great weekend! I indulged in nonstop Twi viewing and a bowl of popcorn..almost like really being at the movie theater (I wish) but close enough until my bird started screeching (I pretended she was an over the top Twi-hard fan) then she surprised (thrillled) me by yelling Edward (in Bella’s voice)..I LOVE THAT BIRD!!! :)

  • StotheP

    That was hilarious! I always love reading about Twi stuff from the NotanAddikt perspective. Even though the rest of my day is spent mumbling, “It’s not a habit, it’s cool, I feel alive. If you don’t have it you’re on the other side. I’m not an addict (maybe, that’s a liiiiiiie).”

    So. I’ve read the rest of your comments and I have to share with you at least this one thing that might be but probably isn’t exclusive to me: Bella and Alice, you guys are, *snaps bubblegum*like, so cool.

    For serious. Maybe, like you said, the grass is just always greener, but . . . I’m pretty sure your grass also has better clothes and a kickass accent. Even though I’m no travel newb, I’m always impressed at these glimpses into your “exotic” world. Oh, look! That menu’s in a different LANGUAGE! Hey! People Over There like Twilight, TOO! Oh, wow! “Jorts” means the same thing in Belgium as it does here in Amerkuh!

    Now I feel like Borat. Great.

    Wa wa wee wa!

    • same

      So glad I’m not the only one who goes to K’ Choice every time! I swear, Paradise in Me has gotten more play time on my iPod in the year or so Ikve been coming to LTT then the prior 10 years combined!

      • Alice_NaA

        hehehe Sarah Bettens should pay US instead of her PR person.

    • Alice_NaA

      There are many cool kids here, but I’m pretty sure our real life friends would have a good laugh if they knew poeple think we’re part of them. But the country IS cool and so is purple :).

  • operarose

    What kind of shopping place were you standing in that first picture… it looks gorgeous?! I totally want to go to Belgium now. Everything, including Ashley and Xavier, look so chic and sophisticated compared to North America! Minus the freaky parking garage. But we have plenty of those here too.

    Thanks for sharing your story! I love to see what LTT girls around the world are doing. I’m glad a teeny bit of Hollywood visited you!

    • natashadushi

      “Minus the freaky parking garage. But we have plenty of those here too” MWahahahahahahahaahahahaha Epic!

      That’s how we ended up in the creepy parking lot!

    Hey, Belgium is awesome! It’s the home of Hercule Poirot, the world’s greatest detective. Think of all the Twilight mysteries he could solve:

    The Mysterious Meaning of KStew’s Necklace
    The Hunt for Harry Clearwater’s Secret Fish Fry Recipe
    The Cryptic “Quil Clout Lay” Clue
    The Great Are-o/Air-o Debate
    The Search for Taylor’s Sexual Orientation

    And if anyone could get 100% confirmation of Robsten, it’s him. The little grey cells, they are never wrong!

    • StotheP

      Yes, Are-o v. Air-o has driven me crazy (ehhh) for months! I heard Daniel Cudmore say Air-o in a clip, and then in the movie he said Are-o in the same spot! Voice-over? Hopefully someone can get to the bottom of this.

      And The Search for Taylor’s Sexual Orientation? Ohmygosh. Too funny. Like Where’s Waldo, only we’re looking for tiny eyes and jorts in a sea of blue men and never-nudes.

      • Robjunkie

        Never nudes! Oh you slay me.

      • http://www.welcometoforksyall.blogspot.com Grey

        I NOTICED THAT, TOO! And then went all shouty caps in the theater. I bet people hated sitting by me and Andee.

    • Alice_NaA

      I would read this. For serious. (and I haven’t read the Bree story, so that’s saying something!)

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

      I love me some David Suchet. This is all too funny.

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

    That sounds fabulous! You two are sooooooooo adorable. :)

    And I agree with StotheP (as always). You two ARE cool. Like really, really *twirls hair*. The farthest I’ve ever been was to Mexico and all I remember is the horrifying sunburn, people screeching, “DON’T DRINK THE WATER” as I held the glass up to my mouth, and children trying to sell me swiss army knives.

    So… ya. You two are cool. Someday (when I’m rich and famous… and NOT rock ‘n rolls lamest— someone kill me for that reference) I’ll visit your beautiful and uhmazing country to shop and eat chocolate. :)

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

      I would like to let the world know that that reference I used doesn’t exist. Sometimes (all the time) I make up song lyrics and think they are actually the lyrics after awhile. That is one of them.

      *curtsies*

      • WakeUpDead25

        OMG you’re hilarious :)

    • http://notanaddikt.blogspot.com Bella_NaA

      Some day when you have the moolah and the time you are very welcome to visit our country to shop, eat chocolate and appreciate our general coolness. ;-) You too StotheP!

      • Alice_NaA

        Although the coolness might fade to sad. But we’ll feed you lots of chocolate to make up for that.

        • JellyBeanRainbow

          Your coolness will never fade, you have a lifetime certificate, you’re Not-an-addikts AND you’re LTT readers.
          Plus you are very beautiful, hot and very well dressed.
          Funny letter, btw!

    • Midnight_Cyn

      TAKE ME W/YOU PLEZ!!!! :) I can be the entertainment..lol

  • TeamSeth

    Did you turn your Fade to Sad shirt into one of those tees that could function as a dress when you wear tights underneath?! It looks like that from the pic, and it’s soooo adorable. I may have to do that with my Tweed Serious tee! Do a little tweed elongating at the bottom.

    I’m jealous of your being so close to Xavier. He’s so beautiful. I’m glad you guys kept it real and showed up fashionably late (though still technically early), but good call on making the dessert happen next time!

    • Alice_NaA

      Yep. It’s a simple long H&M tank top. I always want my tops extra long, to cover up the fact that I’m wearing comfortable jeggings instead of mega tight skinny jeans. popcorn folks…

      • TeamSeth

        To quote a certain RPattz, Genius! Pure genius!

  • SarahG

    Thanks for giving us a view of what this “craziness” looks like in Europe (ie, it NOT crazy…kinda like they’re not bears…haha. I slay me sometimes…)

    PS I didn’t know Sauron was Belgian? :)

  • http://missamyjoon.tumblr.com Amy

    Hey Alice & Bella!

    I miss your blog posts, so of course I read this straight away when I saw Belgium in the title!

    This sounds like my perfect Twilight fan event. Not having to wait hours and hours in line to get a peek or clamoring through throngs of girls. You Belgians really are normal! :)

    • Alice_NaA

      We still love you long time!!!

      • http://notanaddikt.blogspot.com Bella_NaA

        I second that. Miss you too!

  • rpisthenewps

    Everytime I look at those pics with the metal star award-thing, I keep thinking – please. no one. trip. Can someone say ‘dagger to the heart’?

    • http://notanaddikt.blogspot.com Bella_NaA

      WIN!
      Those things looked pointy indeed…

      • rpisthenewps

        With Ashley’s white dress, we could have some 3rd-wife action going on!

  • lapushbaby

    It’s official, I love you girls!! Next time I’m in Europe, look out, I may stalk you.

  • snowwhitedrifted

    The NaA girls are such cuties and can rock those tees!

    So funny- “4.30am: We’re ready to go to sleep, if only the stupid rooster and birds would STFU”.

  • Edible Art ?

    I am such a dork just realised why you had red mullett – bwahahahaha !!

    Loved the rundown – sounded totes 2nd hand embarressing for Ash & the other one.

    Just been on holiday to Belgium had a great time in Knokke Heist !!! but got stuck in terrible traffic on the ring road around Antwerp :-( you do not want to hit that road on a Friday afternoon at 4.30pm. LTR now giving travel updates !!!!

    • Edible Art ?

      Whoops I mean LTT – Rob would not give travel updates he can barely drive !!

      • Alice_NaA

        “the other one” lol

        I will think about Rob giving travel updates before I go to sleep tonight…

        P.S. you don’t to hit ANY road here in the morning in early evening.

    • http://notanaddikt.blogspot.com Bella_NaA

    just so u know,in Antwerp Ashley nd Xavier didnt visit all rooms only 3 or 4…so u were lucky!!
    and we are not tame :p i saw 5 women fighting over a poster (which u can just buy in a store , not autographed or anything)and ripped it to pieces :s cwazy like a cwocwonut^

  • thischickrunswithvampires

    “Alice and Bella are lucky and find a great parking spot in a creepy secluded parking lot where they can change into their fabulous LTT t-shirts amidst heroin syringes and dead bodies dumped here and there.”

    I had to stay away from LTT while waiting to see Eclipse. I love this letter – I’ve read it twice. :)

  • sharelle

    it was so amazing!
    i was there too and i had a giant poster and a autograph of ashley greene (l)
    the only thing is that i had to wait one more hour till i could get of the parking place,
    and i’m also from the netherlands so i was at home 4.30 a clock
    and 2 hours later, i had to go to work.
    really tired,
    but IT WAS WORTH IT

    eclipse is the best of the three till now.
    can’t wait to see breaking dawn!
