Nothing to look forward to…..

Forgot to preface this with a note: We probably have one more week of Stephenie Interview recaps, but didn’t get it done in time for today. Forgive us, and enjoy this letter!

Dear Twilight,

Remember when you were in school & worked & worked & worked your ass off and somehow got through finals and then at the end of the semester, usually right before a major holiday or a fabulous summer vacation with your friends, you crashed? And got strep throat/ear infection/threw up for 2 weeks straight (but hey! You fit into that new bikini) ? Was that just me? Well, that happened to me all the time at the end of a school semester…. and I feel like that’s where my life is right now. After Moon & I made our “announcement” that we’re blogging when we want instead of when you want (daily) I crashed. It was like all the stress & busyness of managing work/husband/friends/sisters/blogging/Robsessing for 1 year and 8 + months caught up to me, and I coudln’t keep my eyes opened. Remember when I talked about that task in my Outlook task manager that was 32 weeks overdue? Well, it was now 76 weeks overdue and…. dun dun dunnnn I completed it! I turned on the TV and actually paid attention to what was happening. I read! A book. NOT TWILIGHT. I went out on a worknight. I got to bed before the rooster crowed. It was magical. And exhausting. Doing nothing is just really boring. And makes me tired.

On Monday I was telling Moon how I felt a little “Blah.” I explained how tired I am and how I have nothing to look forward to- we have no trips planned. The summer is almost over. I’m completely moved into our Philly loft minus the 3 boxes that I don’t feel like unpacking & I swear to you will still be there a year from now. A week ago nothing was different- I just had LTT & LTR to worry about every second and so it kept me from thinking about how I really should unpack that box or how depressing it is that there was nothing planned to get me away from “real life” for even a long weekend. Now…. I have time to think about how bored I am. And besides an embarrassing show to a Emmy after party in what might as well have been sweats & a holey tshirt, Rob & the rest of the Twi cast has been just as boring as I’ve been. Moon knew just what I needed though:

Moon: its the lack of fierce kbitch in your life. i know. it’s alright you can say it to me
UC: you’re right.  so right
Moon: you need a “bitch brow” to make your day better
UC: what’s that?
Moon: that’s what they call kstews look she gives- the bitch brow or something. or bitch face
UC: omg yes The Bitch Face. All I need is to go look at the monday bitch face & all my woes will be cheered
Moon: yes, reread over the krisbian oath & then you’re case of the mondays will be cured

Krisbian Oath

So then I put my thinking cap on to try to come up with something to look forward to over the next few months- and I mean Twi-related stuff (But if you’re wondering my personal list looks like this: buy new underpants, go see that drew barrymore & justin long movie, @janetrigs birthday celebration in philly, christmas, my 28th birthday in June where I’ll be obliterated drunk b/c 28 sucks, having kids in 5 years, kids going to college and retirement) And this is the list I came up with:

Twilight things to look forward to

  • Learning which of the Pageant moms who email us on a weekly basis insisting their child is the perfect Renesmee wins out and their toddler is ruined forever as the child star of a major motion picture and in the future gets into the kind of trouble that would make even Paris & Lindsey blush.
  • Seeing Taylor Lautner on the big screen as one year older that way when I accidentally think he looks good in a scene or two I feel less creepy
  • Finding out what color airbrush paint the cosmetic team uses on Rob’s abs this year and how they plan to make sure it doesn’t come off in the “Isle Esme” water when Edward goes skinny-dipping
  • Watching Bella consume dozens of eggs. Do you think it’ll look like Gaston in Beauty & the Beast? That’s how I picture it in my head…
  • Learning how many more marshmallow’s Mike Welch can fit in his mouth this time around since he’s confirmed for Breaking Dawn Part 1
  • Slow mo-ing one of Leah’s many transformations into a wolf, hoping to catch a little boob action- what? she’s hot!
  • Rockin’ my new pirate patch I picked up just for the Isle Esme scenes- so I can block out one person & keep my focus on the other

What am I missing!? What else can I start to look forward to!?

    “Rockin’ my new pirate patch I picked up just for the Isle Esme scenes- so I can block out one person & keep my focus on the other”

    What? Am I the only one who blocks out Kristen and put myself in place of her during all of her scenes with Rob? Isn’t what we’ve been doing all this time? And isn’t this what we did while reading the books?

    Hmm, on the other hand a pirate patch does sound like a good idea.

    • snowwhitedrifted

      *random*
      Talk like a pirate day is this month.
      *something to look forward to* 9/19

      • Sj

        It’s right up there with Zombie Day on my fav. day list. serious.

      • superhumanmoron

        Uh….of course!! It’s on my birthday, therefore 9/19=total win.

      • kitkat

        I’m a fan of Velociraptor Awareness Day, which I think is usually in April.

    • robsfuturemate

      @RSMS, maybe it’s because of our names but you are DEF not the only one to do that! LTT/LTTR should sell pirate patches with the anti-mullet on it perhaps?!

  • aleisha

    Add to the list:

    Release of Eclipse on DVD — not so we can see the movie again, but so we can post all of the ridiculous shit we see after the 347th viewing (i.e. Dakota’s eyebrows, anyone — you KNOW there’s a ton more stuff we’ll notice).

    Also, finding ways to avoid non-Twilight books by continuing my immersion into the world of fanfiction and reading all of the millions of incarnations of Bella and Edward that ultimately end in hot smutty sex and marriage.

    • Bea

      Release of the Eclipse DVD is also to be looked forward to because SM promised that she used the word “jorts” in the commmentary. Hopefully she’ll use her producer power to get it into the BD movie script!

    • Erica

      To me, the release of a Twilight DVD also means the release of a related RiffTrax for it. That means it is time for a viewing party where we’re not allowed to have snacks or drinks for fear of spewing them all over the coffee table.
      Bonus points for hitting the TV.

    • an’yergroundedfertherestofyerlife

      Can’t wait for the DVD to confirm that Charlie has an earring hole in earlobe. (Thought I saw it in Twilight Saga Eclipse – The IMAX Experience”) I would love to think Chief Swan sported an earring in his earlier/more carefree/flighty Renee days.

      BTW, Billy Burke rocks.

    • TeamJacobEdward

      Like i swear there are plane lights behind jasper and that boy vamp in the flash back before he kills him

    • P.S.

      What about in the tent scene where Jacob says ‘get your hands off me’ but it looks like Edward is the one saying it.

    • http://isuckatbloggingbuticanbite.blogspot.com/ Janetrigs

      WAIT STOP!! Put down the Fanfic. There are REAL BOOKS to read that are goo. Down with FF!

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

        Recommendations, please!

        (Seriously…I keep going to the library, desperately trying to find a good book while 3-year-old hangs off my arm, 2-year-old heads for the stairs and 1-year-old starts to cry. Then I just grab something like “The Fascinating Story of the Building of the Roman Aquaducts” or a Suzanne Somers diet book, neither which are filling my need for a good read.)

        • The Old One

          The Glass Castle

        • TeamJacobEdward

          The Hunger Games books obviously.
          I really liked a YA book called “Fallen” the next book, “Torment” comes out end of this month.

          • http://isuckatbloggingbuticanbite.blogspot.com/ Janetrigs

            YEEAHHH all of those are goo! And thumbs down, because I got thumbs downed.

          • lindsaylee

            oops, sorry dearie, thumbs downed you

        • http://isuckatbloggingbuticanbite.blogspot.com/ Janetrigs

          Non-YA
          the sookie stackhouse series
          Jeanine Frost series (there are two)
          The Historian (kinda like a text book, but serious vampire info)

          YA
          the maze runner (very LOST-esque)
          Birthmarked (amazing, just amazing)
          The uglies series

          • http://isuckatbloggingbuticanbite.blogspot.com/ Janetrigs

            It’s http://jeanienefrost.com/ Obviously I misspelled. You can’t be surprised

        • Twi Mom(not like on O)

          I dont know if it has a series anme but The Girl with the Dragon Tatoo and the 2 that follow it.

          For a quick read but fun look at Greek Mythology. I liked the Percey Jackson Series.

          I cannot remember the name of the book, but it is by the woman who is the wife of the bassist in Weezer. It is a true story about the time she spent in a Harem. I have not read it but it is high on my to read list.

          • TeamJacobEdward

            Weezer?! I totally heart them. Uber lots. I’m a complete geek about Weezer. I’ll totally have to check that book on… you said the bassist, right?… Scott’s wife out. (Yeah I know all their names, like I said, complete and total geek.)

        • Jerzeylisa

          Yes to the Sookie Stackhouse series and
          The Mortal Instruments, 3 in that series, with a Prequel, Clockwork Angel, that just came out. I read the series as fast as I read Twilight.

        • Renie

          Relialbe Wife, 1,000 White Women, The Fountainhead, The Help, reading the Hunger Games series now and it’s great for YA. Some many great books so little time.

          • Renie

            ..that’s “Reliable”

      • superhumanmoron

        Aw…you got a thumbs down for reading published literature. (Because we win.)

        • http://isuckatbloggingbuticanbite.blogspot.com/ Janetrigs

          YOU WIN! and thumbs down because I like you!

          • snowwhitedrifted

            I thumbsupped you because I think I’m conditioned to want drinks when I see your avi. ;)

      • Stacey

        Can I like both? I did thumbsup you for the love of books!

        I’m reading Hunger Games, The Help and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.

        I also wrote some Fanfic. I am going to hide again under my pillow. #iamadork

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

            It’s funny. Read it.

          • TeamJacobEdward

            Yey! Can’t wait to read it!

            *insert Brandon Frasier clap here*

            Thanks Stacey EC and WC!
            (one for writing it one for posting the link)

            Side note: every time I see “Stacey EC” I think of Edward Cullen, instead of East Coast as intended.

            Ps… Stacey, you have to tell me how to get the courage to post your writing. I have one shots I’ve been toying with posting but too afraid to. Help me grow some sparkly, edward disco balls. ;)

          • Stacey

            I hope you like it TJE! I have no idea what actually made me to do it, but I am pretty glad I did!(No wait…it was WC Stacey!) I think it will help me build my confidence up to write my own things again. That’s what happens when you let things distract you from something you used to love. You should put yours on too! I would love to read it!

            No Cool Name: Thank you for your review! I want to read yours, too!

          • TeamJacobEdward

            I will def let you know when I get a min to read it.

            Funny that ff got you writing because my couple one shots got me writing. I was like, “this is fun.” Now I have a half completed story and another story I’ve completed but like it so much I’ve started to add to it from a different perspective….now it’s the size of two full books and I’m not done. Both stories are completely ask my own. lol I never knew I liked much less loved writing.

            The problem is no one knows but the friend who read my completed one and tells me I should really try to get it published. Okay so the real problem is I care WAY too much what other people think.

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

          I totally read it and YES, it’s funny! Read it, guys!!

          • Stacey

            Thank you! *blushing*

            I am putting more chapters up on Sunday, while my husband is drinking beer in MA, leaving me alone with two small children. #naptimeproject

            Why did someone thumbsdown SnowwhiteDrifted? She was just being a good friend! Makes me a little sad. :0(

  • Bea

    I’m still looking forward to Stephenie interview posts, but I suppose those are less interesting for you since you were there.
    We can look forward to the inevitable cast members getting drunk in New Orleans… hopefully they’re in Louisiana during Mardi Gras!
    Ooh, and I read the other day that some aspiring filmmaker won a mentorship from Cougar Cathy. I can’t wait to see what kind of movie that results in!

    • Bea

      Bets on who will get caught flashing a float for beads?

      • lindsaylee

        Nikki, hands down

        • TeamJacobEdward

          I thumbs up your Nikki hands down!

          (Why do I feel like I’m playing poker? “I see your hands down and raise you a thumbs up.” Please excuse me, my husband had WSP on lately…)

      • The Old One

        I would say it’s gonna be a tie between Ashley and Kellan. Both major exhibitionists!

        • Bea

          Ashley’ll do it, but she’ll be wearing pasties, so it won’t count. My money’s on Ms. Reed getting Elizabeth Reaser nice and drunk and her being the one who gets caught.

  • JodieO

    I thought part of that krisbian oath was to harass people on Twitter, Facebook, and Ted C’s blog who don’t worship her. Keeping all those fake accounts should take up plenty of time! Bonus points when you post someone’s personal information or you get someone to shut down their account!

    In serious, though, take a night class! Learn to mambo or cook Greek food or learn to sew. That’ll at least come in handy for when those babies come along in 5 years or when you have 40′ windows you need to cover.

    • ChillinWithCullens

      I’m with you JodieO – I learned to knit and joined a Stitch n’ Bitch group, and it totally changed my world!

    • Midnight_Cyn

      Jodie you ALREADY know how to sew and beautifully…hope your kitty is better today…HUGS!

  • http://Twitter.com/Jayde17 Jayde

    I’m looking forward to the Eclipse DVD release. Also, maybe if Steph finished that God-awful thing called Midnight Sun we could look forward to reading what is sure to be crap. *cough*

    P.S. I actually saw Beauty and the Beast today at the cinemas. In 3D!

    • Alice_NaA

      Ohhh I love me some beauty and the beast…

  • superhumanmoron

    I’m most looking foward to seeing who is cast as J. Jenks. Naturally.

    • Sj

      Sean Penn pleeeease.

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

        That would be AWESOME, though I’m pretty sure he’ll still be busy saving Haiti and won’t have time.

        (That’s not a crack at Penn for his work in Haiti – rock on, Penn.)

        • ChillinWithCullens

          Ha! I saw Sean Penn on Jackass last night dumping green paint on someone’s car! He def takes breaks from his humanitarian efforts…

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

            Oh. Well then, J. Jenks for sure.

    • Stacey

      My fingers are crossed for Mr. Tracy Morgan. He would totally bring it as Jenks. Plus, some intentional humor is always a nice addition. Which would be a nice contrast to the unintentional humor that usually pop up in the films. (Looking at you wigs.)

  • dazzledtodeath

    pirate patch=excellent idea. thanks.

    • snowwhitedrifted

      Sadly, at first read, I thought she was referring to a new style of bikini wax.

      • Renie

        Oh, geez, me too. Must be the wine.

    • The Old One

      I thought she was referring to the kind of modesty patch they use for filming sex scenes on tropical islands.

      • snowwhitedrifted

        “snatch patch”

        • Midnight_Cyn

          Oh Gawd…PLEASE let me forget I ever read “snatch patch”!

          • snowwhitedrifted

            *smiles* I should offer brain bleach with about 80% of my comments.
            ;)

            Hi Cyn!!!

        • Jerzeylisa

          “snatch patch”, that’s so funny! In this months issue of Rolling Stone, Steven Moyer talks about the sock that he wears for modesty and how Alexandar Starsgard refuses to wear one.
          What can we call Rob’s sock? A cock sock, perhaps? Will he even wear one?

  • operarose

    I’m looking forward to Deathly Hallows in November. Uh…sorry. Wrong place. But still. Who isn’t?! For one reason, part of me is relieved I’ll soon be over with not one but two fandoms. Although, who am I kidding, I am forever at the mercy of SMeyer and JK Rowling, so when and where they decide to release their next books, I’ll once again be at their service until those books have been well-analyzed all tweed style and movies are released and scrutinized, etc.

    I have no idea what I’m looking forward to in BD. To be optimistic, I guess I’m looking forward to when I can breathe a sigh of relief after watching the film, when I realize they decided to fade to black during the birth of Renesmee and did not (really) fade to black on Isle Esme. Or, maybe I’ll just have a sigh of relief when the whole thing turns out to not be as horrifying as I (we) have imagined it could be. Seriously, I liked the BD book, but do not envy anyone trying to translate this to screen.

    And UC, as much as I miss LTT every day, I am glad you got a well-earned break. It’s not worth killing yourself over a blog. Congrats on finishing the report. Also, I plan on having kids in roughly 5 years. By then will you change Letters to Twilight to Letters to Twilight Moms? (or MILFs?) Just curious. That might make the concept of motherhood easier to face. Or, when they go to college, will you have Letters to Twilight: AARP Edition? (Because by then LTT will have a massive sponsor like the AARP, of course, and you’ll be raking in the money and blogging full-time… no more overdue reports.)

  • natashadushi

    Looking forward of Bella armwresteling Emmet (BD@= part 2), and Bella pulvering a rock.
    The casting: will Paris Hilton be cast as Eliazar (please no!), Zac Eferon as Renesmee, Tomstu as J.Jenks….. and the prostetic stomach that Kristen is going to wear

    • The Old One

      Yes, TomStu as J. Jenks. Or anybody, really. Maybe I’ll start a campaign to have TomStu cast as somebody, anybody in BD. There are plenty of random vamp parts that need to be filled.

      • HowToBe

        NO! TomStu as Garrett, SERIOUSLY

        • The Old One

          I think Rob and Kristin were influential in getting TomStu the part in On The Road, so if he were interested (would he want to, do you suppose?) I’m sure they could pull some strings to get him the part of Garrett. I don’t mean to imply that he couldn’t get parts on his own talents! I think he’s great!

  • snowwhitedrifted

    “Seeing Taylor Lautner on the big screen as one year older that way when I accidentally think he looks good in a scene or two I feel less creepy”

    That’s funny… *mumbles* and true.

    Well, one thing to look forward to:
    It’s Friday of a 3 day weekend!! Let the cougarita consumption begin.
    *The bars is open*
    What can I getcha?

  • lindsaylee

    Rockin’ my new pirate patch I picked up just for the Isle Esme scenes- so I can block out one person & keep my focus on the other

    genious!! Thats the best idea i have heard yet. Once again for htis one, my husband will not be allowed to sit with me, if he is even allowed to come (twss).

    Loved the post! Im so sorry that you are bored UC, we certainly miss you around here!

  • ThePlaneFriend

    I’m looking forward to watching BD (1&2) in the theaters and saying to Plane Husband “It was just as bad I I thought it would be.” (Sorry, I think I’m always going to like the version in my head best).

    I’m also looking forward to seeing how creepy they can make a computer-animated baby look, how strange KStew will look with pale make-up and red contacts, the wrestling matches she has as a vamp when she’s learning to fight (and I’m sure the noises she’ll make will be strangely similar to the ones she made when James attacked her, she had nightmares in NM, when she broke her hand in Eclipse, and probably during labor and vamp conversion in BD too…), and, of course, I am looking forward to how badly they gross us out with a birth scene/Taycob imprinting!

    • The Old One

      Somebody is upset either because you don’t think BD is gonna be Oscar material, or that you are dissing the Stew’s acting skills. Or both. Reality, people, reality.

      • ThePlaneFriend

        I knew I’d get some thumbs-down when I re-read my post :) No worries.

        Thanks for the vote of confidence, Old One (although I have to say it feels rude to call someone Old One!)

        • The Old One

          No worries! It’s not rude if you’re old, and proud of it!

    JK. Please don’t put me on the crazies list.

Sending the birds & bee’s book to UC to read that it doesn’t take 5 years to make babies (Literally a min. or two if your lucky) it does however take a lifetime to raise them…also reiminding her that turning 28 definately DOES NOT SUCK..TRUST!

        And it wasn’t me this time, but now I’ll thumbs down you because you asked why. :)

        • Midnight_Cyn

          That’s why I am hatin on you ..(NOT)..xo
          I am just having a bad day and too sensitive……

    • frightenedflips

      matching bibles – hahahah!!!!!!!

      • TeamSeth

        Serious! That made me laugh too. :)

    • The Old One

      Hi Cyn! Glad to hear the wedding is on, and you’re surviving, and you’re going to meet other LTT’ers! Things are looking up. I’m kinda jealous now.

      • Midnight_Cyn

        Hugs to you T.O.O!!! You read to fast though…I am barely surviving the wedding…YOU HAVE NO IDEA..tee hee..ask my family…lol..as for meeting up with LTT’ers that is my fantasy! Kinda like spending the day with Eddie..so don’t be jealous..and if it was to ever happen YOU of course would HAVE to be there! xo

    • Bea

      I want to see pictures of the Twilight themed rehearsal dinner!

      • Midnight_Cyn

        It really wasn’t intentional..subconciously maybe..but the colors for the wedding are red/black/silver sooo what else did they expect..lol…I did do something on purpose tho..I bought some Victoria’s Secret body spray that makes you sparkle and my dress is silver….I couldn’t stop myself…

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

          Sparkly Cyn = fantastic.

          • Midnight_Cyn

            LOL…if only Eddie would show up and we could dance..wait..(ummm dancing, not such a good idea for me..said in my best Bella voice) but I can dream right!! Yeah I just finished watching Twilight…oh which reminds me…random question here…You would think after my 7th zillion time watching Twilight I would have had this question before? When at the prom, during Edward and Bella’s conversation when he kisses (swoon) her neck and he says “Is it not enough to have a long and happy life with me?” What if she had said yes..how could she have a long/happy life with him…say for 70-80 yrs with not being able to umm do more than steal a kiss or leghitch here and there..sounds like misery/torture to me?

          • The Old One

            Midnight Cyn, this is why fanfiction was invented.

    • Stacey

      I just gave you a thumbsup! I get sensitive about thumbsdowns too. Actually, my RL little sister gave me one on the post I did with Snowwhitedrifted. Isn’t she sweet.

      I love the idea about the East Coast LTTers!

      • Midnight_Cyn

        Thanks Stacey! I don’t know why it bothers me so much, I guess I am always just worried that what I wrote doesn’t read like I meant it to etc., because I often “see or read” the words wrong. Am I a just overly sensitive these days..1st child getting married and all..stressed about embarrassing him by doing/saying something stupid.Haven’t been around people in almost 4yrs nevermind almost 300!..will be glad when the day arrives!
        BTW GREAT post the other day with snow! xo

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

          Cyn, you will totally rock the wedding. Just be your cool self like you are here. Also, I’m guessing all of the 300 people at the wedding know you and love you and will forgive (or, likely not even notice) any faux pas.

          • Midnight_Cyn

            NCN..thanks for the vote of confidence but unfortunately I won’t know at least 250 people there….they are all from the brides family and I am only partially sane here b/c it is perfectly quiet and I am not talking only typing and you all know how I screw that up!! LOL..this whole thing terrifies me! Example: For the 1st time in almost 4 yrs the hubs had to stop at a store on the way home from my doc appt. the other day and he wanted me to go in..BIG MISTAKE..there were only like 35 ppl in the store, but the lights, conversations, music all short circuited my brain and I didn’t even realize that my hubs was talking to me b/c I had “locked on” a flashing light and never even heard him, he said I was just stopped and staring, so he took me back out to the car..how the hell I am going to handle 300 yelling/dancing people that I don’t know????

    • eatmyjorts

      I’m hoping whoever thumbsdowned you did it by mistake. Otherwise, be warned, Cyn’s pretty much off limits here…do you also torture kittens & ruin parties? I feel you must. Sheesh, what is with some people? Just thumbsdown me instead.

    • TeamJacobEdward

      Hey Cyn! SO glad the wedding went well!

      You mentioned in another comment light flashes and extra stimuli affecting you. I wonder if it’s a common brain injury thing because that stuff gets to me too…and stress (that one is the worst) Only for me it ends up with headaches. There really was no point in mentioning that, just that it got me thinking about wondering what our head injuries have in common, or if it’s just the norm… I’ll have to try to remember to ask my brain dr (good luck to me with that, my memory sucks).

      Hope you’re well.

      • Midnight_Cyn

        Hey TJE!! I WISH the wedding had already happened and I knew that it went well but its not for another 21 days!!
        I definately know about the headaches, I still have them daly it just depends on the severity..so I really hope yours are not too bad..you have been through enough!
        This stress I think is the worst, it gives me awful migranes and YOU I am sure know what that leads to…I am now also worried that my dress is not going to fit and its too late to order a smaller size and I am not even sure there is one smaller so that means trying to alter it..urghhh..
        The worst of this is the guilt..This is supposed to be such a happy day and all I am doing is worrying… :(

        • TeamJacobEdward

          Oh laud! I thought my reading/comprehension was back at near normal… Apparently not. :( Somehow I thought the wedding happened. *sigh*

          Yes, I completely understand about the headaches. Me too, everyday. I’m glad that mine’ve gotten so much better, but they still hit and tend to wipe me out when they lash out at me. I feelbad for my husband and kids when they get bad because I’m completely useless. Which makes me feel bad, which makes me worry, which is essentially is a stress…and so it goes round and around. And because stress and bright lights are big triggers for the headaches it’s been slow going getting back to work.

          Anyway, I hope the wedding will be great and you get to enjoy it and feel great. PS: A great seamstress should be able to alter your dress flawlessly. Great seamstress’ are under-rated. Too bad you don’t live around me, my great aunt is fab.

          • Midnight_Cyn

            I sure wish we lived closer (I am not even sure what part of the country you are in lol) but it would be so nice to talk to someone who really understands what this type of injury can do to your life and that of your family. Like you I have such a hard time feeling so guilty all the time about not being able to do any of the things I used to be able to. I was/am a type A personality and on the go all the time..worked 10 hour days, ran the house, shopped, took care of 4 kids, 5 if you count the hubs, did all the bookeeping for the his business etc., even when I had Breast Cancer..but this..has turned our world upside down and I have such a struggle trying to accept who I am now….but you of course would understand all this…((hugs))

          • TeamJacobEdward

            Well I THOUGHT I’d read in a comment something about you living out east… But now I realize my reading comprehension / memory is not as recovered as I thought so now I’m not sure. LOL. I’m in frosty MN. “Ya, sure, you bet ‘cha. Uffda.” and all that. ;) One time at work I was talking to one of our reps in California, he told me “thank you” for helping him, I told him, “you bet ‘cha.” He busted out laughing so hard and said he couldn’t believe we actually said that. -lol- While our accents in movies are waaaay overdone, some things are true.

            Anyway, I’m going to be sending out good thoughts and sending up prayers for you for the wedding. One thing that has helped me was my husband kept making sure I was okay when we went to weddings and things this year. When I started feeling overloaded I’d tell him I needed to head out. So getting someone to whisk you out when you need before you’re at the point of full on horrible headaches and things helps uber lots…. And on-the-spot meds, and quiet recovery time the next day. Those things helped me even though I wasn’t the mother of the groom. I’m sure they couldn’t hurt for you. (((hugs)))

          • Midnight_Cyn

            HAPPY LABOR DAY EVERYONE! P.S. Glad I past the point of EVER going into Labor again..especially if the Dad is Edward..although would have fun trying…tee hee… :)

  • Twi Mom(not like on O)

    So sorry you are bored!! Take JT’s advice and take some fun classes.

    Unfortunatly I read online that there will be no ftb for Renessmes birth. Lets hope that is a horrible rumor someone started!

    I am so not looking forward to that craptastic other book that no one will read.

    I am looking forward to seeing who will be cast in the roles as witnesses. I would prefer one long list after it is all set, rather than how they they make such a big deal about people that are shown for like 2 sec in the movies. (like they did about Heidi in NM)

    I am also looking forward to HP:DH. I can mention it because it is only 1 degree apart from Twi since Rob was Cedric, right?

    Everyone have a good labor day weekend!!

  • theseviolentdelights

    I’m looking forward to the hilariously creepy face I’m expecting Taylor Launter to make in the scene where Jacob imprints on Nessie.
    I’m thinking something like this:
    http://media.photobucket.com/image/pork%20and%20beans%20music%20video/Kakashislover11/creepychipmunk.png?o=3

    • theseviolentdelights

      Launter = Lautner.
      eh, typing fail.

  • frightenedflips

    “Pirate Patch 2011″ LTT-shirts need to happen!!!!

    • P.S.

      Cool. We could all wear them on ‘talk like a pirate day’ and be totally inconspicuous. BTW, shirts are 20% off at the LTT store this weekend. Just saw it on a facebook post. That makes me so happy that I just ordered my first shirt YESTERDAY! (penguins) Lovely.

  • Midnight_Cyn

    After UC’s comment about the eyepatch: I must make a confession: Is it normal that when I listen to the soundtrack of Twilight while trying to fall asleep and Bella’s theme comes on, for just a few moments I imagine its me sitting next to Edward as he plays the piano???

    • Bea

      Yes dear, that’s normal.
      Also, your glitter body spray for the wedding is way more normal than several things I’ve seen mothers do do at weddings. You’re going to do great!

    • eatmyjorts

      Yeah, about the wedding, Cyn. You just need a designated quiet space you can go to if you need to reset after getting ‘stuck’ on something. Is it normally lights? Do dark glasses help? When I was really ill with Immunne Deficient Chronic Fatigue Syndrome I’d get total sensory overload a lot, & need to carry dark glasses & earplugs to zone stuff out for a while.

      • Midnight_Cyn

        EMJ..first off..LOVE YOU…what you wrote…sniffles…(and no one better thumbsdown you ever!)
        As for the quiet place, great idea! I just hope I am “aware” of zoning out..I wasn’t in the store…yes lights are a big problem for me especially flashing ones, but also there seems to be other triggers..like loud repetetive noises..the way the doctors explained it is that my brain can really only handle one stimulus at a time…too much and it just basically shuts down but I have never really experienced it as I did in the store. Then again, I am never out of the house except for doctors visits so I am not sure what to expect…
        How are you??? I have wanted to write you but I can’t get my email addys from yahoo to Gmail but as it turns out I may have to go back to my regular Yahoo account anyway because I have had nothing but trouble with the Gmail page..as we “speak” it is frozen open and I can’t close it or use it. I wasn’t even able to log on to it for days and now that I can it won’t work for more than a day..so maybe I will send you and email from my old account…again..loves you! xo

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

          Wish I had better advice for on how to handle this whole wedding business, Cyn. Sounds like a toughie. Here’s what I can offer: let us all know here when the wedding is and I can promise that I (and, I’m sure, a whole heck of a lot of us) will pray for you that day (and others can just send good thoughts and vibes into the universe for you, if that’s how they roll).

          Worth a shot. :)

          • eatmyjorts

            That´s a good idea! Sign me up.

            Cyn, you just have to commision someone to keep an eye out for you, who´ll spot if you´re phasing out, & can steer you away to safety! At my BFF´s Dad´s funeral I had my eagle eye on her in case it was all too much. I had valium, Jack Daniels & keys to the getaway car in my handbag. I think those who didn´t know me thought I was either a) her lesbian luvva, or b) a stalker. But it was vital to be able to whisk her away if it all became too much – it was a big occasion with lots of peeps too.

            It´ll all be ok, you´ll see.

          • Midnight_Cyn

            NCN & EMJ…have I told you lately how much I appreciate your friendship and support??? You are both super awesome and such an inspiration to me, making me almost believe I can do things I never thought possible..what are you both doing on the 25th tee hee…seriously, all of my BFF’s here are SO great and you all know who you are…right JodieO, Ang, TOO, TS, TJE, JT, Bea of course UC/Moon and on and on the list goes…I love you all xoxo

  • Stacey

    Once filming on this thing starts there’s is going to be ALOT to look forward to! The casting is already making me feel giddy! For instance when they announced Benjamin. I first asked myself, “Which one is that? Too many new characters. I just care about Garrett?” Then I read it was an Egyptian character and I was still confused. Then I had no idea who the actor is and I remained confused.

    See fun.

    • http://notanaddikt.blogspot.com Bella_NaA

      I’m soooooooo looking forward to finding out who they’ll cast as Eleazar.

      *crickets*

      Who’s Garrett?

      * more crickets*

      You know, maybe we should have a collective BD reread. That’d be something to look forward to!

      • Bea

        The only reason I remember who all these vampires are is I did a reread last month when my paperback of BD came that I ordered in the spring… I’d totally forgotten! Both that I’d ordered it and who Zafrina was!

  • TeamSeth

    Am I glue? I think I just hallucinated that you said 440 days until BD comes out. There’s a release date? Already?

    Otherwise, ::insert loud squee:: add “G&Ts with TeamSeth” to your list of personal things to look forward to in the super duper near future as in just over 24 hours. (or if you’re over the G&T, maybe some hurricanes just to be timely)

    YAY! See you tomorrow!

    • The Old One

      TeamSeth, was it you who was blogging about trying to land a role in BD? If it was you, what happened/didn’t happen–if you’d care to share?

      • TeamSeth

        Yes, that was me. Kate was the character. Well… it went fine, I mean, for what it could be. I had to give up the dream because I got a job and had to go to work every day instead of being available to go to auditions. So, there wasn’t much need to get an agent any longer, since nothing was being shot during the weekends/nights. Oh well. I am still acting though, and the web series I shot got picked up by a distributor and I’m actually getting paid for it! hehe Very exciting. So, we’ll see. I’m trying to keep up my chronicle of it somewhat, but it’s few and far between posts since I decided to commit to writing.

        So… I did tweet my friend who is friend’s with Bewley and remind him that he said he’d tell Charlie about me and my goals. hehe I’m not holding my breath.

        • Stacey

          Congratulations on the web series! That’s great! Bewley better come through!

          • TeamSeth

            All I saw was “Bewley better come” You’re darn skippy!

    • ChillinWithCullens

      Drinkin one for you TeamSeth!

    • TeamJacobEdward

      *coughs* I’m such a geek for knowing this. First I confess my “math” skills with knowing exactly how long between theater release and dvd release of Twi & NM to give a prediction of when Eclipse will bee out on dvd. Now this…

      BD I movie release date its set for Nov 18, 2011. BD II has a release date too, it’s Nov 23, 2012.

      “I accept this total and complete geek award…”

      • TeamJacobEdward

        LOL! Whoops! (Nov 23 is someone’s birthday…hahaha)

        BD II hits theaters November 16, 2012.

        • TeamSeth

          I’m like, “Oh, I guess it her hubs birthday.” Um… yeah. That’s how often I think of Rob. Basically… never. Oops. I have too many Bewleys and Cudmores to deal with… though Cudmore does has a really cute younger brother who plays rugby…I mean, not that I, uh, look into these things or know his older brother is married or know that his mom is more or less in charge of the film bureau of canada. Whatevs…

  • Waytoooldforthistoo

    Dear Letters to Twilight,
    I don’t know what to do. I started a new job a couple of days ago. Today I overheard one of my coworkers talking to another coworker about her baby girl whose name happens to be Bella. I couldn’t help myself from blurting out, “Are you a Twilight fan?” Her and another coworker both said “Yes” and giggled a little bit, then confessed that the idea for the baby’s name came from the book! (I was so excited!) They continued with the conversation they were having before I so rudely interrupted. But then the most horrible thing happened. I realized they were talking about the baby and the plans for her upcoming first birthday. I couldn’t help myself… I interrupted again, and said in the most elated and disturbing manner, “Is her birthday September 13th?” Four coworkers stopped what they were doing and looked at me and laughed. I’m old enough to be most of those ladies’ mother! Maybe they’ll forget by Tuesday. Thank goodness for the long holiday weekend!

  • http://sweetinator88.wordpress.com sweetinator88

    “Finding out what color airbrush paint the cosmetic team uses on Rob’s abs this year and how they plan to make sure it doesn’t come off in the “Isle Esme” water when Edward goes skinny-dipping”

    Alls I’m sayin’ is they better shave his chest and cover up the moles and freckles on his back because I seem to remember Edwards skin being hairless and flawless? Yeah, no offense to Robert Pattinson, but… he has flaws… at least on his skin…
    I don’t think I’ll be able to feel the effect of Isle Esme in BD if Edward is pale and beautiful eeeexxceeept his hairy chest and moley back…. I’ll just be thinking about that the whole time hahaha :/

    • TeamSeth

      Thank you! Fully agreed about the moleyness and the hair. Greek god statue Summit! Greek god. Charlie Bewley has the build down, of course his character is named after a Greek god, but still. Statue of David here, people. That’s all I’m saying.

      • http://sweetinator88.wordpress.com sweetinator88

        yess! hahah
        im sick of everyone ignoring the gross hairy chest.
        hair on a guy is okay. hair on *Edward* is NOT okay!
        especially cuz they make him so pale for the part. dark hair all over pale chest = gross.

  • Midnight_Cyn

    Happy Long Weekend Everyone! Enjoy and be safe! <3

  • robsfuturemate

    Ummm, looking forward to Bel Ami and Water for Elephants! *runs to hide at LTR*

    But srsly, those are great books if you haven’t read them!

  • theC

    First and foremost….LTT/LTR is always my favorite thing to look forward to each day….just to read the comments alone makes my day,all of “you” are the funniest and loveliest out there!

    As far as anything to look forward to….I am attending my “first” Twiconvention in Oct and I have no idea what to expect (other then what I’ve read from Moon). I have to say I’m alittle scarred but also alittle excited…..wish me luck!

    • Midnight_Cyn

      Just Have FUN at the Convention and make sure you take lots of notes/pics for the rest of us!! We will expect a full report lol..

      • theC

        Thanks Cyn I’ll do my best,but evidently I also need to take lots of ca$h to one of these things,just to take a picture with Carlisle (pfach) is $50 bucks,as much as I love me some daddy C, I don’t have a Cullen bank balance!

        • Midnight_Cyn

          Holy Cullens!!! Are you serious??? $50 bucks after all the money they have made from us Twi-fans..seriously that is ridiculous! Well I don’t feel quite so bad that I can’t go to one of them after all… Just a thought …I’d get one of those high tech camera’s that look like flower pins or something and snap away any time you get close enough :) !!!
          Hope you have a blast!

  • Mariam

    i hate kristen…she ruined Bella in my opinion…but i LOVE Alice and Jasper…they’re my fav couple

    • http://sweetinator88.wordpress.com sweetinator88

      i dont like Kristen or Rob for either part really… *ducks*
      Kristen is too twitchy, but thats really just the worst of her problems…
      Rob is actually getting better, but like i said up ^ there further, he needs to lose the Chest Hair.
      …i capitalized on accident.. but it seems fit, i think its time The Chest Hair becomes a thing. ;]
