Team Seth- NOT a pedophile- celebrates an anniversary

Dear LTT,

You have bewitched me body and soul, and I love, I love, I love you. I never wish to be parted from you from this day on.

Happy Anniversary!  One year of laughs and love.  It goes by so fast!  Now, I know we technically met in August 2009, because I remember finding you via Stephenie Meyer’s website after writing the web producer an embarrassing email (you know, Steph’s little brother, Seth. Ahem). But I didn’t really get you then, so I wasn’t too interested. Your set up was confusing, and it was hard to shuffle through your past. You were like Mr. Darcy at the Meryton ball, and I just couldn’t figure you out. About a month went by. Then one lonely day in September I was googling snails because my friend and I had had a discussion about some aspect of snails, and I wanted to figure out what the deal was (I’d give details, but I don’t remember them).

AmanDuh, is that you?

Instead I found The Snail. My life was changed. Not because of the horrific body mutilation photo, but because I refound you!  And you made sense this time!  I loved you immediately. Your sense of humor was wonderful, your friends were hilarious and passionate, your loyalty to being a constant daily event in my life was comforting.  As I looked over your recent tales, I found Cyndi’s letter… Tear Jerker Thursday.  This was really the turning point.  I felt a real connection to you. I needed you. I liked you more than Twilight itself.

My first comment was under a false name, well, my RL name, but not the name you and I use.  Then on September 16th, the magic happened. I remember how long it took me to come up with my name (approximately 7 minutes while snacking on chips & salsa). But I realized that Seth really was my favorite character–and at that point I didn’t know BooBoo was playing him so there was no pedophile creepiness involved–plus I though Seth Morgan [Stephenie’s bro] was pretty cute. That day I commented about my disappointment in Aro’s lack of paperlike skin in the NM trailer and how Caius looked like Mr. Filch from Harry Potter. That day I also wrote a whopping THREE letters to you! Then within 10 days you were already showcasing our correspondence about David Slade’s 40th birthday.  I couldn’t believe it. You’d accepted me so quickly, it was wonderful. Those early days lasted forever. I imagine it’s how Edward and Bella felt at the beginning. By October 3rd I had fully committed. I created a gmail account, twitter, and gravatar. (@goteamseth and goteamseth@gmail.com).

Yeah, ten. (click to enlarge)

I remember that time I made some 10 entries into the Imma Let You Finish contest because I had that much free time on my hands. My boyfriend didn’t appreciate me spending a whole day on that instead of job searching. Oh well.  I enjoyed myself.  Then there was the time I found out UC and Moon’s RL names. I felt so nervous as I uncovered them online. A mystery I shouldn’t know. There was a let down afterward. A mystique gone. A virginity I could never get back.  And I remember when I submitted the article pitch about you and UC/Moon to Glamour, only to have an out-of-office reply come from the editor I emailed, which said (paraphrased), “I’m moving on to a new adventure in my life. Thanks for everything.” #Fail.

Yeah, we're pretty much besties now. Thanks, LTT!

Oh, and you introduced me to Billy Burke, Charlie Bewley, and Daniel Cudmore. Heeeey!  Remember that time I semi-stalked Bewley’s friend on twitter and ended up forming a real friendship with him? How awkward. We still talk though, which is kind of wild.

You carried me through my unemployment. Those dark months of handing out resumes in bulk. Rejection after rejection after rejection. You were there for me. Your friends took me in, emailed me, chatted with me. People I’d never met, and many I likely will never meet, treating me like a bestie.

Super. That makes me really happy.

You enabled me to go to Forks and create tons of inside jokes with my sister, to make a Walmart cami with a Charlie Swan iron-on to wear to the New Moon premiere, to get a little bottle for Christmas from Buttcrack Santa himself, to try my hand at acting, to buy a Tweed Serious tshirt, to create a unicorn, to meet an LTTer in South Africa to watch the Eclipse premiere with while I was there.  So much you’ve given me!  I know we had our ups and downs. Times when I was going to leave you. But you pleaded me to stay, so I did. After all, where else am I gonna go?

So thank you for everything. And Imma let you finish, but I just gotta say, you’re the best blog of all time. Of all time.

Kind Regards,
TeamSeth

Um, TeamSeth? I think you forgot to mention you got drunk with UC a few weeks ago when you came to visit your sister in Philly!!! That should be your favorite thing to come out of LTT!

Awwww we LOVE hearing your LTT stories! Think you got a good one? Send it in!!!

    Yay Team Seth!

    You forgot to mention how when we went to Forks & went to the Twilight store they had a basket of buttons and you STOLE from me the ONLY “Vampires Yay” button!

    Also- seeing New Moon at Christmas time with our juice boxes of wine. That was fun times.

    • TeamSeth

      I found it first! And who got you that awesome Eclipse viewing kit? With jorts in it!

  • Sue G.

    Great post! This site does feel like it’s family! :o)

    • Luludee

      ::Virtual group hug:: :D

      • TeamSeth

        On group hug days I’ve begun listening to track 3 (The Bravery “Ours” song) on the Eclipse soundtrack. It’s just so feel good and perfect.
        “This time is ours! If I can hold this moment in my hands, I’d stop the world from moving. I’d stop the glass* from turning!
        This time is ours! Inside a frozen memory of us. And we are motionless, motionless. (this time is ours).”

        Around 2:45 it becomes a little like we’re all doing a choreographed dance… but who doesn’t love a random choreographed group dance?

        *um, what is this word? I always sing ‘glass’ as in hour glass

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

          Oh my gosh TeamSeth I love you so much for this comment.

        • Alice_NaA

          I’m all for random choreographed group dances! As long as my fake me can have a little grand jeté solo.

  • ChillinWithCullens

    Love this post!! Team Seth, you’re amazing and LTT wouldn’t have been the same crazy experience without you!!

  • Stacey

    On days like these I wish I knew you in RL. You always bring the funny and insightful comments. You also mention Mr. David Tennant, which makes me all types of happy. You also are Team Damon, so that’a a win! (Yeah, I am excited about tonight’s episode!)

    That Kayne West 10 things just killed me this morning. That’s the way to start a morning right!

    Anyway, I adore you lady! (It amazes me how many wonderful people, I have gotten to meet on this sight!)

    • Bea

      Hi Stacy– Keep meaning to leave you a note. On LTT-less days I’m having fun reading your fanfic. Thanks for the giggles… Alice in the body paint and then being punished by having to wear khakis kills me.

      • Stacey

        Thank you! I am blushing right now!

      • http://www.twitter.com/_lindelle Lindelle

        Wasn’t that hilarious?? Perfect punishment for Alice!

      • http://soexcitedto TeamJacobEdward

        IKR? When I checked yesterday to see if there were new chapters and saw she posted chapters 10 & 11, I did a little happy dance celebration before reading them.

        (Stacey, new chapters again soon?) :)

        • Stacey

          Very soon! Promise! I also owe you an email with my computer finally behaving!

          • TeamJacobEdward

            Squee! Yey!

    • TeamSeth

      Warm fuzzies! And this.

      • Stacey

        Fantastic!

          “What a beau-ty”

  • Edible Art ?

    I love that last photo – Hiding your face by the MASSIVE forks sign ha ha

    It kind of sums up how I feel about my twi/robsession gotta get the shot but NO ONE will know it’s me !!!

    • TeamSeth

      I have to be honest here, it took me like 5 rereads to figure out that ‘shot’ meant with a camera, not some other, er, ReNameme-making shot.

  • Edible Art ?

    I love that last photo – Hiding your face next to the MASSIVE forks sign !!!

    It kind of sums up how I feel about my Twi/Robsession – gotta get the shot but NO ONE will know it’s me !!!

  • Edible Art ?

    double post – I am sooooo second hand embarressed ! oh wait it’s first hand – you are all second hand embarressed

  • Goodgirlgoneplaid

    On my trip to the cinema to watch E-clipse (cheers oprah) I couldn’t help but notice the best line of the movie “I’m still virgin” (worth the ticket price alone) took place by our old favourite…The Sink!! I couldn’t help Giggling along with everyone else. BUT I had a little secret smile thanks to YOU TeamSeth and one if your brillz comments a while back.

    I soooo love all the secret smiles that I’ve gotten since I’ve been reading LTT/R and the fact that there are bloody millions of them. :))

    • Rachel B

      I love secret smiles too! Sometimes I secret smile to myself and my husband will ask me why I’m smiling and I just have to say “its a twilight thing” lol

      • Goodgirl goneplaid

        We’ve all been there. #Normal

  • Midnight_Cyn

    Ohh TS..thanks for taking me with you down memory lane! Lately, I have been spending WAY too many middle of the night hours rereading the LTT archives and time after time YOUR comments have made me smile/lol/cry etc. We have become friends through this jouney as have so many of us have here even though we have yet to meet ( THAT WILL CHANGE!) LOVES YOU! XOXO

    • TeamSeth

      Awww!!! LOVE YOU TOO! I need to go back and read your comments–you’re always so funny. I do remember that day you learned what “shocker” meant. hehe And the chicken misplacement day. Well that was a couple days I think. And did I ever tell you that I have a visual of your house? I always imagine that you have a green couch with a loose knit afghan on it. But don’t tell me otherwise because I want to keep the dream alive. ;)

      • Midnight_Cyn

        OMG..TEAM SETH…How could you have THAT visual of my house!!! I am truly offended!! “a green couch with a loose knit afghan on it.” SERIOUSLY! Do you picture me with gray hair and an housecoat too???? ((shudders)…and you of all ppl should KNOW I sleep with Blanket Eddie everynight….okay…I have an electric blanket too but in all fairness its freezing here and it is UNDER my sheet on the couch…I happen to be wearing a Twilight tee at the moment btw.. :)
        still love you though….

        • TeamSeth

          No! I didn’t say you USE the afghan. Of course you sleep with Blanket Eddie! We never use our afghan, but it’s always there, just hanging out.

          And why you dissin’ on the green couch?! I have a green couch :'( Do you picture me in a housecoat with gray hair?

          • Midnight_Cyn

            LOL..I am not dissin’ on green couches…I guess in my head (you never know what my brain will conjure up) I had pictured something like my Mom had years ago, pleather and with plastic covering it! LOL…Now if you had said purple couch a whole different image would have appeared, cause I think that would be “cool”!

            Also, I have seen your picture, I KNOW how beautiful u are!

          • TeamSeth

            Purple may be cool, but green is what? Good! :)

  • kristen’s bestie

    Ahahaha! Very funny! Word to everyone else on LTT….if you haven’t yet clicked on “The Snail” and then further clicked on the “Snail” picture. Don’t do it!!!! I am forever changed. But that is what LTT/LTR has done to me. I now know what The Shocker is, which is another memorable item that I learned here. LTT/LTR is full of educational moments for me… and I do love it here!

    • TeamSeth

      I just want to put the disclaimer that UC put in the link to The Snail. I know what she did to you. And Kristen’s Bestie, I would never ever do that.

      • kristen’s bestie

        I will never be able to hear the word snail again and not think of “The Snail”. I thought it was going to be something about AmanDuh!

        • TeamSeth

          I’m starting to think The Snail is like Bella’s prom–it’s an important rite of passage.

          • Midnight_Cyn

            Okay please let the dim witted in on the “snail” joke??? I hate being left out…. :)

          • The Old One

            Please, Midnight Cyn, for the love of Edward, please do not click on The Snail! You will regret it forever. Just let it go.

          • kristen’s bestie

            Then I guess I’m like Bella in that respect… I could of lived w/o it. It’s something I could have lived the rest of my life without knowing things like The Snail exist.

          • TeamSeth

            MidCyn! Noooooo!!!! DO NOT CLICK. It’s so much worse than the blue button. Step away from The Snail link. Far, far away from it.

          • kristen’s bestie

            MCyn – Do not look at The Snail in the second paragraph of TeamSeth’s letter. You will never be the same. Trust.

        • Midnight_Cyn

          @TOO: “for the love of Edward, please do not click on The Snail!” Well when you put it THAT way….I not going anywhere near it…..

          @Teamseth: I will trust you on this one too…. :)

  • operarose

    Happy 1 year TeamSeth!!! I think you found LTT about the same time I did. The Snail Incident was around the time I first visited. Also, love your premiere outfit. Awesome.

    • operarose

      P.S. here’s to hoping we really meet in an airport someday! And I want a cool t-shirt like yours.

      • TeamSeth

        I do too! (about the meeting thing) I think ECFF2011 is in the works… so maybe then (East Coast Feather Fest 2011) You are EC right?

        Anyhow, which tshirt? The cami with Sit down, have some plaid. on it? I have another one! It was 2 for $5 at Walmart! Well, it was a “two pack” technically, but you get it. Cheap enough that Summit should’ve been to amp up the money spent on the wigs.

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

        Yep, I’m putting the feelers out for ECFF2011. (Thanks for coming up with the name, TeamSeth – also for the alternate meaning, Edward Cullen Fan Fic. Brilliant.)

        In the next month or so I’ll be putting the word out more so people can start to think about it. What think you, EC people? Boston? Montreal? Burlington, VT? Portland, ME? Newport, RI? Can we do this next November?

        • Stacey

          This Connecticut girl is so ready! Just need a cover story for SGjr. Any ideas?

          • Midnight_Cyn

            You could always say that your going to visit a “old” friend that had an accident and needs lots of support…tee hee

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

            Isn’t there something you could bargain with? I have a friend who recently got her husband to agree to try for a fourth child by letting him go on a trip to some football game (involving plane tickets and a hotel – a real trip). Crazy but true story. Isn’t there something SGjr would like in trade…? Or is the problem that you don’t want him to KNOW where you are and what you are doing? Because that I can understand, too…

            Or how about you just call this an online book club? We discuss books quite a bit! Then it’s not a lie and it sounds respectable enough!!

          • TeamSeth

            Online book club, ftw!

          • frightenedflips

            Online Book Club!!!! Thats kinda what I tod MrFlips when TeamSeth came to visit! It must have worked cos he agreed to have complete strangers from the other side of the world come stay with us.
            In hindsight, (how do I word this?…bear with me), it really shows the increadible bonds we form on LTT/LTR. And how easily we just “get” each other, that I would feel absolutely no qualms about convincing my husband to welcome “random people I met online” into our home. Its not something I have ever done before, but here again is where the combination of The Story, THIS blog and THESE people are like a rare and beautiful comet, it doesn’t happen often, but when it does, its just magical.

          • TeamSeth

            @FrightenedFlips, and you and Mr. Flips and Mom Flips 1 & 2 and Flips Jr were the best hosts ever!!!!! (Go Spain hehe)

          • Stacey

            The book club is good! Here’s the issue… SGjr. has no skills with the children. The girl child rules over him with an iron fist (not me, just him) and he seems afraid to be left alone with the baby. (as was seen with the Eclipse movie debacle.) I am trying to break him in. Hopefully my awesome MIL can be of assistance.

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

            Oooh, I see your problem. Luckily, we are talking about over a year from now, so the baby will be a bit older and (hopefully) easier, and that’s plenty of time for you to drop hints to your MIL that you really need a break…

        • TeamSeth

          Oooh! Newport! Rhode Island is on my list of remaining 10 states to visit!!!

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

            Newport is super cool! The houses there are totally insane.

          • Stacey

            Newport is very nice!

  • Ang

    Happy Anniversary TeamSeth! I came out of LTT retirement today to see your fabulous post! :-) And wow…that Forking sign IS huge!

    Er, wait, didn’t I quote “you have bewitched me…” to you recently? Guess it means more coming from Mr. Darcy. Awkward!

    • TeamSeth

      Thanks! And yes, you did. Can never have too much of a good thing! Except for really rich fudge, because then it makes me feel sick.

      • Ang

        Hmm…could you have too much Vitamin R? No, probably not.

        • TeamSeth

          Depends on who you’re drinking it with…

        • Midnight_Cyn

          ANG…………where have you been!!!!!! I have missed you so!!!! I will have to shoot you an email now that it is FINALLY working again! We have so much to catch up on!! HUGE HUGS….xo

  • ICanHandleIt

    TeamSeth… today’s the day, and I’m just gonna say it… I think you rock!! I always read your posts, cause your Kung Fu is strong. :-)

    • TeamSeth

      Thanks :) The bears won’t get the drop on me!

  • BrookeLockart

    Cheers to Team Seth! In honor of your anniversary today I will reveal the fact that I am responsible for the snail and the dragon. Last summer I came across those pictures on twitter, so I emailed them to Moon and dared her to put them in a post. I never thought that she would…never in a million years.

    Sorry that I missed you over labor day!

    • TeamSeth

      GASP. You are responsible? You know, it’s fine. Some girls like guys with genital mutilation. Not all girls, apparently. Though I’m surprised UC even posted it all.

      Sorry to have missed you too. Except that you were in Toronto and I’m jealous of that.

    • eatmyjorts

      Brooke, it was you? You scarred me for life. Well, on the inside, not like the actual snail & dragon & their ‘owners’. I always wanted to know…can these people still have specialsnugglesexuals? You’re responsible & now I need answers. And who would they have sss with? Who could stop laughing/retching long enough?

      And Team Seth – I think you were one of the first people to say hi here to me in person, back when I was still BeakerJ & had no idea what the shocker was, & didn’t know Cyn’s story. Boy, has life changed…..

      I’m so glad to see you by the sign! I couldn’t do it, I’d just drive past pretending to be cool, but run back later & give it a little kissy.

      • Luludee

        How did I not know you used to be BeakerJ? How did I miss that? Good to know you are one and the same!

        • TeamSeth

          OMG! Seriously! I had NO idea. With the cute little beaker icon. I’d wondered where she went… but apparently to the LTT court house to get a name change.

          • eatmyjorts

            No, I never had the Beaker icon, if I had I might not have changed my name…can’t remember who had the pic, just that I coveted it. BeakerJ is just too close to my real name & I wanted to be able to *express* myself more anonymously!

          • TeamSeth

            Your name EatMyJorts always makes me think of Salute Your Shorts. #normal

      • Midnight_Cyn

        EMJ…would you please tell me what the snail joke is…I asked above and haven’t heard yet..I know you will set me straight..oh and “the shocker”???

        As for the sign..YOU know you would SO stop and take a picture.. “) Me.. I would not only stop I would have a lil ole knife with me and carve “Eddie and I were here” Oh..and when I get arrested I will expect bail from fellow LTT’ers! Yup I would so do that….I am after all crazier than sh*t…

        • Luludee

          Cyn, I don’t think you really want to know about ‘the snail.’ It was a picture, but it can best be described as male genital mutilation.

        • TeamSeth

          Eddie and I were here! Cyn that made me laugh out loud. Thank goodness my boss is in a meeting elsewhere.

        • eatmyjorts

          The Snail should not be seen by decent human eyes Cyn, It makes me wish (almost) that I had short term memory issues so it would have floated by without sticking to my neurons….Just cuddle Blanket Eddie & let it goooooooooooooooooooooooooo…..

          I don’t really want to kiss the Town sign at all (much, would if I could), I want to run through the woods shouting ‘They’re not bears’, randomness is much more my style.

          • Midnight_Cyn

            “I want to run through the woods shouting ‘They’re not bears’” you forgot……. NAKED!!!! :)

    • kristen’s bestie

      This does not surprise me! You were responsible for The Shocker as well!! Were you not?!?! LOL!

  • Luludee

    Yay, a Team Seth letter!! Your Imma let you finish entries were hilar!
    I think my anniversary is about the same time. I’d seen LTT links on other sites but the name actually made me think that it was going to be pretty much the opposite of what it is. I think the first post I ever read here, or maybe it was LTR, was the one where Moon spotted Rob and Kristen at that concert and got a snapshot. I started exploring the site and I was hooked!
    I don’t remember when I first commented; took a few weeks or maybe a month I think. But you are one of the commenters that I remember seeing at that time, and you’ve always been one of my favs. Happy Anniversary to you!

    • Luludee

      P.S. Lolz, you kinda cyber-stalked Bewley’s friend? That’s hilarious. But this means that you’re only 1 person removed from Bewley? So I’m sort of almost only 2 people removed from Bewley?!

      • TeamSeth

        Short answer? Oh hale yes!
        Actually me and him have a tentative double date with our significant others set up for next time I’m in London. Now I just have to get back to London…

        • eatmyjorts

          Send up the LTT signal when you get there…am only 50 miles out…will take me about an hour!

          • TeamSeth

            Will do! Um, is the LTT signal similar to the wolf call that the jortspack does? (which according to C-Dubs commentary is actually what Quiluetes do to say hey–random)

            Bhahaha–this one is for Stacey: I’m now imagining that scene from the end of season 4 (new series) when they are boosting the signal out of the Torchwood Tower (er, the Water Tower in Roald Dahl Plass in Cardiff). Like the LTT signal is emanating out into the universe!

          • Stacey

            Team Seth-

            I know of what you speak of. Actually, it makes me happy to say that I know another person other than myself and my dad that watches Dr. Who or by it’s other name, “Harry Potter” (SGjr strikes again)

          • TeamSeth

            I don’t get the Harry Potter thing :(

          • Stacey

            Oh sorry, he calls Twilight, Lord of the Rings, Dr. Who etc. Harry Potter. And he calls Harry Potter,”that wizard kid”. He only like sports & cars. Sigh.

  • Midnight_Cyn

    TS..how did you figure out when your Lttversary was? I wanna do that too..IT DEFINATELY WAS A DAY TO BE REMEMBERED (this from someone who can’t remember yesterday lol) and CELEBRATED…LIFE ALTERING TO SAY THE LEAST!!! I did after all “meet” and become a member of this AWESOME family!!!

    • TeamSeth

      It actually took forever! My first comment that I remember commenting (besides to read Austen on the main page of the old site under my RL name) was about the Cullens cars. But for the life of me I couldn’t find that post because I don’t think the post itself had anything to do with cars! I think I’d just picked a post at random and commented, so lord knows when it was from. Anyway, I knew it was August time frame… but I did more research (i.e. clicking through EVERY post and doing ctrl + F for “team seth” and “teamseth”) and found that 9/16 was my first ‘real’ comment that kicked off my [nearly] daily commenting.

      I think you started on Tear Jerker Thursday. Or at least your commenting started then. The link to that day is in the post itself today.

  • Cam

    Okay..have to comment before I even read the post — LOVE LOVE LOVE Matthew McFayden as Mr. Darcy — and that quote from the movie —OMG. Kills me.

    Secretly I may love Matthew more than Rob. Did I just say that? Thumbs down ladies, but between MI-5, Pride & Prejudice & one quick backside shot in Frost/Nixon…Matthew makes me melt!

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

      I hear you, Cam. That shot of McFayden/Darcy coming through the early morning mist to Elizabeth is just…one of the best bits to ever be captured on film.

      (Though I do also have a bit of a Colin Firth thing…I guess anyone who plays Darcy kind of gets me going. Hmmm, maybe I should dress up Mr. Name in an early 19th century pair of breeches and coat…)

      • TeamSeth

        It’s enough to get your knickers in a knot… MacFayden will never be a knickerblocker!

        • TeamJacobEdward

          Ah memories of the day I wondered about people who called shorts knickers, if the term they’d use the term jickers instead of jorts. Them we preceded to discuss knickers, knickerbockers, the Knicks, and misconceptions of knickers being underwear instead if outerwear. And of course knickerblockers.

          :)

            (as you can read above apparently typing coherent sentences with my phone presents a challenge)

            I was just thinking, some call “jean” material “denim.” So what if a person used both terms denim and knickers… Would jorts then be called, “dickers”?

      Oops, just tried to thumbs up you again. #fail I <3 him too! He was in the miniseries of Pillars of the Earth recently, but it was on Starz or something and I couldn't see it for free. :'( So, I will have to wait some time until it's out on DVD and I can borrow it from the library.

    Fun letter, TeamSeth!

  • The Old One

    Happy Anniversary, TeamSeth. I started reading LTT/LTR about the same time, I think. It truly boggles the mind all that has gone on here/been discussed and dissected in a year. I feel I’ve gotten to know many commenters here, some have come and gone, but you have been a constant that I’ve enjoyed so much!

    Cheers,
    TOO

    • TeamSeth

      Aw shucks. I love seeing your comments :) It’s nice to have constants, keeps cancers like me feeling good.

      • TeamSeth

        Why did I get a thumbs down for that? Cancer as in zodiac sign, and TOO is a constant for me, which was what I meant. Sheesh people!

  • TeamJacobEdward

    TS- I make a point to check LTT later in the day to read your comments because you crack me up. I can always count on a good, “Bahahaha!” from you.

    LTT wouldn’t be the same without all awesomely hilarious commenters. LTT is greatness in itself but with all the amazingly funny commenters it’s MAGICNESS!

    • TeamSeth

      :) I’m glad my Oregon Trail timezone trek didn’t hinder your reading. (and I too check back too much a lot to see people’s comments, including yours)

  • http://ltt Drawing A Blank

    Ok, So me being a newbie to LTT and To most of the inside jokes was stupid enough to let me curiosity over ride sense. I clicked THE SNAIL!!!! OMG!!! I am going to have nightmares. Also What is the Shocker?????

    P.S Loved your post Stacie

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

      Just like you (and ME, TOO) should have left that snail link unclicked, leave the shocker thing alone, too. Trust.

      (I have to say that at first I accidentally typed “leave that snail link unlicked.” Ew, ew ew.)

    • TeamSeth

      I’m so sorry. I did not know UC was going to link to The Snail!

      Anyway, welcome to the secret society LTT. Have some plaid!

    • theseviolentdelights

      “Also What is the Shocker?????”
      You can google it. ;)

  • Midnight_Cyn

    Soooo after all the talk about THE SNAIL, I have fought myself the entire day (which by the way I should have spent working non stop putting silver glitter on pearls, but NO I can’t tear myself away from LTT) I finally clicked on the link…fully prepared to be forever ruined/blinded/damned to hell (at least until I fall asleep and forget I saw it)…only to discover that it brought me to a Letters to Rob page….God is Great!!! I was spared from whatever nightmare and probable heart attack you were all trying to save me from…. :)

    • TeamSeth

      The Lord hath smiled upon you tonight, Cyn.

    i love the pride & prejudice picture :P
    when i read the caption i laughed hahaha

  • TeamSeth

    @MidCyn, I know it’s late, so hopefully you’ll come back here tomorrow/today, but I had to tell you this. I went to go read your first letter from Tear Jerker Thursday again and I got towards the end to this part:
    “Who knows what is next, maybe I WILL find the courage to go OUT to see New Moon! The thought alone terrifies me, but I know that I have to keep trying, that I can NEVER give up because dreams do come true!”

    And I just cried and cried. Because you did go see it. And it really meant a lot to me and I think to many others on LTT that you were able to go. It’s just amazing to have you as a part of my life, however online it is, it’s still real.

    • Midnight_Cyn

      TS, it is because of people like you and everyone here that I was able to go see NM (and a little trickery from my son) ! Every day when I come here I am not the damaged person that my so called RL friends and even family see, I am just me! I can laugh, cry, be inspired and shocked :)! I feel so honored to belong to the best online “book club” without judgement or “that look” I always get from people that knew me “before” and cannot accept the “after”. It probably sounds pathetic but for me LTT is my only connection to the outside world, however, it is the best place I could ever “go” and spend time with the most sincere, genuine people I have ever “met”. I am so blessed to have found you all…xoxox

  • youweregone

    Happy Anniversary TeamSeth! I have discovered LTT nine months ago. I have been lurking ever since and sending shock waves through family members by suddenly bursting out laughing and occasionally spluttering my drink all over the computer screen while reading this blog. I sent my first comment just two days ago.
    Although I live literally on the other side of the world from many of you, I kinda love you all very much!! But that’s normal, right?
    Thanks for the cosiest and funniest place in the cyber universe.

    • Midnight_Cyn

      Welcome! “Thanks for the cosiest and funniest place in the cyber universe” = TRUTH!!
      Hope you keep visiting and posting!

  • kitkat

    Happy one day late anniversary! Darn school schedule not letting me check LTT all the time…

    PS- I’m definitely down with a real life meeting of our “online book club” if I have any money left after studying abroad. Although, I’m surprised the world can handle the awesomeness that is a mass LTT meeting. :)

    • Midnight_Cyn

      It wouldn’t be complete w/o you there! hugs!

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

      kitkat, are you east coast? (or will you be after you come back from wherever you are – where are you?)

    • frightenedflips

      Kitkat, are you Southern Hemisphere? :)

    • kitkat

      I’m usually West Coast (PacNW) but I’m currently in Paris pour le semestre.

      • TeamSeth

        PacNW?! Where at? Corvalis/Eugene area?!

        • kitkat

          No, Seattle-ish.

          • TeamSeth

            Cool! I’m in Portland.

  • Midnight_Cyn

    Okay off to glitter pearls again (can you believe it has taken me a whole week to accomplish this one task :( which is why I have allowed mons. to get this all done :) ), and apply color to the roses for the cake…tricky with one hand and poor vision..lol…God help me and them (bride & groom) LOL
    Where is “Alice” when I need her…. :)

  • Midnight_Cyn

    Need some wedding help please….
    As you know I doing the rehersal dinner and at first I had planned on a cash bar…that is what the restraunt suggested…but after talking with my son, he doesn’t want the bridal party paying for anything AND he didn’t want us to either, so he said he would pick up the bar tab, which we don’t want either. So what do I do? I originally planned on a champage toast which is $15. a bottle: aprox. $75 total, but now I am rethinking that and am considering an open bar but I don’t have the money if everyone starts drinking alot…from what I gather most of the 25 ppl are wine/beer drinkers…any thoughts anyone!!
    Thanks in advance for your help!! XO
    P.S. FINALLY finished the damn glitter pearls! YEAH!

    • TeamSeth

      First off, thank goodness the glitter pearls are done! I can’t believe Alice didn’t show. She must have foreseen something that prevented her from coming. Who knows what though…

      Second, I’ve not had a wedding, but at the two I’ve been in they both did an open bar with a maximum dollar limit. Once that limit is met it becomes cash only/pay per drink. Maybe you could do something like that? Or if you think you can trust the wedding guests (Did you mean 25 in total?), you could have it be pay per drink, but then have the bridal party/family have like a ticket or something they show the bartender and they get free drinks that you/your son pay the tab on afterward? So then non-wedding party guests pay per drink, but your son’s request is still met.

      Hopefully that made sense. Just some ideas.

      • Midnight_Cyn

        “First off, thank goodness the glitter pearls are done! I can’t believe Alice didn’t show. She must have foreseen something that prevented her from coming. Who knows what though…” OKAY I AM LITERALLY CRYING FROM LAUGHING SO HARD AT THAT…THANK YOU….

        Regarding the guests..this is NOT the wedding just the rehersal dinner that I am hosting (and trust for me this is a HUGE challenge) for the bridal party only…(I WISH there were only going to 25 instead of the 300 that are going to be attending the wedding itself (see why I am terrified) I think your limit idea is great I just dont know how to 1)set the limit and 2) properly make the switch to paying to not paying…but thanks so much for the imput..I really could use the advice..mind stopping by since Alice never showed.. :)

        • TeamSeth

          Are you guys having a bartender or are you just buying to drinks straight from the store for the rehearsal dinner? If bartender I think you just tell t hem and then they keep track (they write down each drink they serve–and each drink has a price to it, so they can just add up as they go) and then switch over once their tally is the limit price. As far as setting the limit, maybe your son could help on that? If you’re buying the booze from the store… I don’t know. Cap your purchases, but have someone on call to do a liquor store run if necessary? (like your hubs or one of your daughters)

          Um, and 300?! Are you serious? Gulp. I would be terrified about that. I guess you’ve already said this and I just forgot. I’m having slight deja vu now about you saying this and me responding exactly the same way. haha. But, wow. 300 is a lot of people.
