Dear Beloved readers, friends and Twipeoples far and wide,
Come gather round, hop on our bearskin rug we bought especially for this occasional (trust us it’s a bitch to find one this large) and lets stoke up the fireplace. Someone fire up the microwave and pop a top on some Andre because TODAY IS OUR TWO YEAR ANNIVERSARY!!! Last year we each remembered what a year of LTT and LTR had meant to us. So this year we decided to remember all those special moments during our second year of reeking havoc in the Twidom.
Moment of Magicness #1
UC: I had 2 cups of coffee this am
Moon: speaking of 2…. TWO YEARS, dude
Moon: 2 years!
Moon: the number 2….. 2 turtle doves
UC: ROBSTEN… it’s a sign
Moon: no. it’s not. but we can talk about our own fireplace moments like leg hitching with steph?
UC: oh yes- DUDE
Moon: Dude, why are you stealing my word?
I’m sure we can all agree that the biggest thing that happened to LTT and UC and me would be getting picked to interview Stephenie Meyer before the Eclipse premiere last June. BUUUTTT I would like to argue that perhaps an even bigger moment came when after jokingly I suggested we get an official leg hitch picture, Stephenie actually agreed and if we’re all being honest her I think she may have been a little excited about it, but don’t tell anyone! Honestly (this is a lot of honesty in this post already) I think UC and I are beyond grateful that we were chosen and got to meet the lady behind the saga and the ultimate reason we began this thing. She was super wonderful, nice and beautiful to boot. And really, talking about high schools where we grew up and lipstick with a best selling author just doesn’t happen every day. Unless you’re like Pancho or something and in that case he probably doesn’t want to hear about her lipstick. HIS LOSE!
Moment of Magicness #2
UC: Remember when you went to the Runaways premiere?
Moon: and I took a poster of a mullet? Yes, I do!
Me and some LA pals went to the premiere of the Runaways last spring to see what we could see: Kristen, Dakota, Joan, etc etc and we thought well we can’t show up empty handed so we brought this poster:
We may have gotten a few looks for the homeless dude on the corner waiting to see some girl-on-girl action but we knew Kristen would appreciate it. SEE! We don’t hate Kristen! Geez.
Moment of Magicness #3
UC: big moment: seeing Larry411 in the airport
Moon: Awwww you and Larry!
After UC’s alarm clock malfuntion and missing her flight to LA for the Stephenie Meyer interview and being rebooked on another flight (thank God!) UC was greeted at her gate by a familar face. Not Rob (sadly) but almost as good, it was Larry411 Twilight tweeter and blogger extrodiaire and personal pet favorite of ours. Amidst the snot and tears and near heart attacks it was like the angels opened a portal from heaven and placed Larry411 at UC’s gate. Who else can be
blamed credited for this miracle than God because why else would two big ol twihards be on the same plane together if it wasn’t for a little prayer being answered.
Moment of Magicness #4
Moon: How about jorts and ltt immortalized in the Eclipse DVD commentary
Really, I mean there are no words. Just this last Saturday we both finally got to hear it with our own two ears after the Eclipse DVD finally came out and it was pretty awesome to say the least. I felt like a rockstar in my own house after Stephenie mentioned LTT and everyone started clapping and hollering for me. It was like an 80s movie slow clap. Maybe I should have jumped up on the bar and gave a small speech something like this:
Oh my gosh, you guys! I mean it was a honor to even be nominated… I mean write this blog let alone take a term like jorts and make it popular amongst the Twi crowd. I’m so sad UC couldn’t be here but she’s currently in Baton Rouge being a stand in for BooBoo but we’d both like to thank God and WordPress and our poor poor families for putting up with us and the makers of Andre.
Moment of Magicness #5
UC: Another moment: our big party in LA at your house
Moon: awwwww that was a whole lotta magicness
UC: that moment when, perhaps I had one too many sips of “Bella’s Blood” that Mr. Choice made me, but I looked around & realized “Whoa… there are people here who wouldn’t be here were it not for LTT….” people who would have never talked- maybe woudln’t have anything in common…. and got a little sappy when we ran to your bedroom to put prizees together for our LTT-trivia game! right after Obird sang us opera in your bedroom!
Moment of Magicness #6
Moon: What about seeing eclipse with like 45 people?!
UC: yes- you telling me where you put all the tickets you bought, just in case you died before the movie
Moon: cause THATS IMPORTANT and normal!
Moon: i still wanted people to see eclipse even if i died… and maybe yell out my name at the leg hitch in memoriam
Moment of Magicness #7
UC: the first thing Stephenie saying to us “I read LTT every day, I’m more nervous to meet you than you are to meet me”
Yea, that was like crushing on that cute guy in your homeroom for like 6 months and then finally one night at a football game he comes over to where you’re sitting and asks if you and your girls want to get slices (or tacos in my case) with him and his boys after. UM, HALE YES?!
Moment of Magicness #8
Moon: what about you interviewing Jacky in Philadephia for Moviefone and being called the SUPERFAN!!!
What else can be said for UC standing in the middle of a busy outdoor venue in Philly to take part in Moviefone’s Eclipse fan events all over the country?! She represented by asking Jackson what was up with all those heinous wigs and since Jasper has different hair in every movie would BD Jasper have a red mullet? Oh yes. She did.
Moment of Magicness #9
UC: dude we had a HUGE YEAR wtf?
Moon: dude our JUNE was HUGE!! Part 1 and Part Two!
Moon: June was out of control! Switching from WordPress.com to our self hosted sites (finally!), all the Steph stuff, you interviewing Jackson, Eclipse Con, the premiere and what about the video we made about kstews fashion for VH1 that never hit the airwaves?!
UC: yes! which would have been hilarious!
Moon: remember the Popsicle sticks with ratings we madeL “Stew-pid” and “Stew-pendous?” AH! Sad the world was deprived of that. And what about us being interviewed by that Philly tv channel on Eclipse premiere day?
UC: At 6AM, in our PJ pants.
Moon: I’m pretty sure my roommates may have thought we were insane getting all twilsophical at 6am LOUDLY. I also like that the interview made it look like I’m a mute (far from it) because they edited out the end when I said some stuff. Thanks UC!
Moment of Magicness #10 & 11
Moon: Oh and we can’t forget the epicness of your birthday greetings! Who knew that people would remember your story about clutching a loaf of bread while drunk on a toliet? One of my favorite posts to put together cause our readers are SO creative and remember everything!
UC: YES, that was the best
Moon: that also makes me think of the “While You Were Away” posts on LTT and LTR you and readers put together for me while I was away in Kenya this summer. We had talked about what would happen if some big news or event happened while I was gone and how we’d deal And I was worried about being behind when I got back but you had it covered!
UC: awww this makes me miss you. i wish we were in front of a real fireplace remembering right now!
Moon: With the sounds of Robsten on commentary in the background, cause they have the true magicness but I guess we’ll have to settle for IM since that’s how we’ve made this work for the last 2 years, why mess up a good thing?
What a year! Who knows what year THREE will bring us! We can’t wait!
A personal note:
I always feel inadequate when I’m tasked to describe our blogs and the people who frequent them because it’s easy for the outside world, “civilians” to generalize what they think a “Twilight Fan” is when we all know that there’s so much more to it. We’re not all tweens, we’re not all crazy Twimoms on Oprah, and we’re not all cat ladies. Sure there are those among us but they just make this a lot more fun (and embarrassing!). I always want to tell the people who ask that you’re all so much more and not only are you fantastic readers but many of you are fantastic FRIENDS! Seriously, some of your are some of my closest friends. I guess loving these sparkly vampires brings people together. I used to always tells my friends in high school that liking NSYNC brings people together and it’s the same thing with Twilight. Liking Twilight has been the catalyst for so many friendships, you find out someone else likes it then a whole world opens up and you find common ground and it becomes so much more than Twilight. I just want to thank YOU for being so much more to us that you can ever imagine.
And to UC I can’t put into words our partnership (though we tried last year at this time) or how much this whole thing has meant to me but you mean the world to me! Shall we do another year? I’m in it if you are!
Super Special Thanks the LTT/LTR Family: our forum mods (past and present) you keep that place rolling and have built an amazing community. The Font and White Yorkie for podcasting with us and providing a very hilarious male point of view, for talking us off ledges, making fun of us and braving this thing. Stacey, our shop designer who kills it with the merch and keeps us all looking less 2nd hand embarrassed. EVERYONE who has ever contributed a guest post and saved our butts more than a few late nights! We truly couldn’t do it without you all!
Thank you all for reading over the past two years, for hanging in there when you didn’t agree, for being happy with us when exciting things happen, for having our backs and for just being you.
Love and other goopy things!
