You know you’re too obsessed

I love Robsten

Fun on Twi FB wall

This weekend I was bored (a good bored- a relaxing bored- a “drank a bottle of red wine myself bored”- a much needed bored, but I’m ready to no longer be bored bored, too) and spent a lot of time on Facebook. For about 23 hours I creeped out my friends by letting them see a picture of myself from the summer before 9th grade, where I resembled a guy whose house Chris Hansen might show up to. After successfully receiving many “OMG your picture is creeping me out” comments, I decided enough was enough and looked through all 1058 pictures I am tagged in to find a new Facebook Profile pic. One thing led to another and I ended up looking through pictures from late 2008- after I had just discovered Twilight- and then pics in 2009 from our first LA Twilight trip to celebrate New Moon’s release. And I settled on a picture where I’m showing off my XXXL Team Jacob shirt from this past summer. It was then I realized I might have a problem. I am obsessed with Twilight (And Facebook). But before I signed off I had a little fun on the Twilight Facebook’s wall. I caught up on some email & found an email from my long-lost real life friend, found again through LTT, about HER realization that she’s a little too obsessed with Twilight. And I felt better about myself (So I went back on Facebook… sigh….) Hope you enjoy!

Dear LTTers,

I have come to the conclusion of late that my obsession with all things Twilight might be a little over the top. Books have always been so much a part of my life that I often fantasize about fictional situations becoming reality (is there anyone who has read Harry Potter that doesn’t wish she could apperate every so often? Or wondered after finishing To Kill a Mockingbird if your dad secretly harbors an amazing talent like being an expert marksman/kick-butt attorney like Atticus Finch? Or wished that they could spend a dinner party with the entire cast of The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society? Or, my personal favorite, read Pride and Prejudice and not fallen in love with Mr. Darcy a little bit?). No series has managed to worm its way into my daily thought processes quite so much as this saga, however…and there are times I’m not even sure why that is.

So here you go, LTTers:

The Plane Friend’s Reasons Why I Might Be a Little Too Obsessed with Twilight:

  • I can quote whole sections of the novels verbatim. I almost never have to look up a quote or fact when commenting on LTT…or slyly inserting Twilight-related phrases into daily conversation and wondering if anyone else will notice. I’ve found that others notice Twilight-speak a lot less than when I’ve been reading Jane Austen and start phrasing my sentences in Regency period English.
  • I can’t even escape Twilight on vacation, though Plane Husband sometimes makes me try:

o       Plane Husband and I went to Gettysburg with some friends a few months ago. As we were driving into town, I saw a restaurant called La Bella Italia. I immediately pointed out that the Port Angeles restaurant where Edward and Bella had their first date was named the same thing. (Plane Husband rolled his eyes).

o      Also while in Gettysburg, we took a tour of a battle field. While the Ranger was explaining details of Pickett’s Charge, all I could imagine was Jacksper in his Civil War uniform.

o      In Guatemala for an anniversary trip, while we were exploring the ruins of Tikal, our Guatemalan guide pointed up into the trees to show us a few spider monkeys. I silently cursed Ms. Rosenberg (or whoever was responsible) for that freaking idiotic line that—of course—popped right into my head.

  • I ordered mushroom ravioli at a restaurant one night. And yeah, you can guess why.
  • When looking at the mountains of snow in backyard get hit by the only bit of sunshine we’ve had in weeks, I wondered if the way it sparkled is similar to how Edward & co. do.
  • The other day, I was scrubbing down my bathroom sink while my one-year-old clung to my leg, and I wished that Alice and her never-ending energy could come help me. I then got to wondering why, in New Moon, when Charlie is at Harry’s funeral and Bella decides to clean the house for him, Alice just watches her and chats instead of helping her. If I were Bella, I would have been annoyed by the lack of super-speed vampire help.
  • I had an incredibly involved dream in which I lied my way onto the Breaking Dawn set. (By telling them I was the new director? Dreams make no sense!) I got really mad when they were shooting a costumed Halloween party (see previous parenthetical), I got to approve the wedding dress—which was pretty in my dream, became good friends with KStew (?!) and Wyck Godfrey tried to make a pass at me (umm, he’s married, dream self. I didn’t, however, cheat on Plane Husband even in my weird Twilight dream).
  • I have a manuscript in the hands of a literary agent. As I’ve been waiting on pins and needles (for over two months now!) hoping that she’ll call and want to represent me, I have done a lot of daydreaming. And I’ve had the thought that if my wildest dreams came true, I became a published author, and some day someone interviewed me (it could happen, right?), I think I would—proudly–announce that if I could meet any living author, it would be Stephenie, because I have a million-and-a-half questions I’d love to ask her. To prove I’m somewhat normal, though, I mostly dream about seeing a book with my name on the cover…and being on the NY Times bestseller list.
  • And, the most embarrassing (or maybe normal?) admission. When Plane Husband was reading a previous post of mine on LTT, he asked me what the LEGHITCH was. Instead of explaining, I opened the passage in Eclipse so that he could read it…just in case he ever wants to try it out!

So, what do you think, LTT readers? Am I totally normal, or have I crossed the line and taken it a little too far? And what random things from your day remind you of the Twilight world?

Love,
The Plane Friend

  • papercutsRdangerous

    totally normal. actually, so normal, you make normal look boring, so i might try to be abit more normal like you!

  • efam

    Totally normal!! I was in NYC visiting my sister this weekend and we ran into a guy dressed as Captain Morgan (promoting the rum at a bar). We took a picture with him and he hitched up his leg. I was totally confused and I asked him if I was supposed to hold his leg. “Um, sure”. Haha…I now realize that it’s his pose on the bottle. I thought he was doing the Leghitch.

    • MariaCecilia

      It could have been a Marx brothers reference too: do you remember how Harpo kept hitching up his leg for other people to hold, with his goofy grin? Don’t tell anyone, though, we don’t want anyone suing Stephenie for stealing the leg hitch idea!

      • natteringyeahrobber

        Harpo had no shame. He leg hitched anyone who was sucker enough to fall for it (which was nearly everyone). I would love to see the Twilight cast do Rob do a Marx Bros. skit – I’m thinking Charlie as Groucho (already has the stache), Rob as Harpo (cause I always sorta had a crush on Harpo), Mike as Chico (“wassa matter bella you-a no likin’ tha rain?”), Jacob as Zeppo, and Bella as that woman (Ms. Dumont?) who is always gasping at stuff and looking perturbed.

  • Anonymous

    NORMAL. I had a dream last night that Rob bumped his head and I took him to the ER……and we had to wait for 10 hours…..so we just sat in the ER with his head in my lap…..that’s normal, right?right?

    • The Plane Friend

      Totally normal :)

    • Stacey

      Much better than the dream I had about Rob as my real estate agent and the one where he was drinking coffee with my dad wearing the People’s Choice jacket. And as good as the one with him wearing the GG suit snd hanging out with a kilt wearing Johnathan Rhys Myers. I need to stop drinking coffee before bed.

        LOL love that you wrote he’s wearing JRM. Freudian slip of the day.

    I have the leghitch part bookmarked, when I bought the books for a friend who “refused” to read them, i highlighted my favorite parts and wrote notes in the margins (she has read them and is obsessed now, duh). So tots normal on that front.

    Just based on your comments about your husband, it seems as though ours would get along well, rolling their eyes at us.

    • Anonymous

      Love it! I do have favorite passages I like to reread, like at the end of New Moon when Bella is trying to figure out if she is dreaming or not. Just curious what type of notes you wrote in the comments

    So your husband actually read the passage from the book? My husband would have rolled his eyes, but not read the passage. At least he will watch the movies with me, and doesn’t make a comment when I am forever reading and re-reading the books.

    • The Plane Friend

      Oh, esteez, my husband REREAD that scene…he’s VERY good about my twilight obsession…see: http://letterstotwilight.com/2010/08/03/the-husband-and-twilight/

        Wow, I forgot about that post. Good re-read. I like how he read them and would discuss them, but just a little. ‘Can we stop talking about Twilight now?’

      • TeamSeth

        OMG! This post just reminded me how I found LTT for the second time! I couldn’t ever remember, I thought it maybe was the snail, but actually it was from a little cartoon about Edward! The “turn me” one where he thinks it anal sex. WOW! Yay! Thanks Plane Friend… it was as if I’d left the kettle on, but now I know to turn off the stove and drink my tea. :)

    Oh, I have thought many, many times about how handy it would be to have a vampire pal or two around when it is time to mop floors or pull weeds or fold laundry. Or maybe just have Stephenie Meyer’s money so I could hire someone to do all that crap. That works, too.

    And yeah, I may have had that secret fantasy about getting published, too…though I suppose I’d have to do more than write FF to make that happen, right? Congrats on getting a manuscript COMPLETED and in the hands of someone who could actually make something happen!! Keep us posted. What’s it about?

    • The Plane Friend

      nocoolname, go for it. Write the book. If I can do it w/a infant/toddler, anyone can.

      I was just promising UC last night that I will shout it from the rooftops if I actually am going to be published–LTT won’t be safe from that.

      My book is a memoir about infertility and using a surrogate in India to carry our daughter. And if that doesn’t sell, I’m hard at work on a novel, too.

      I just need to have a fabulous dream to turn into a bestselling YA saga…

        wow, that is a very courageous thing that you are chosing to share with the world. Congrats on the baby!

        On the YA side of lit, all you have to do is make up some perfect guy with some magical power (mind reading, flying, great cook etc)and some helpless boring girl, they are all the same book… just change the names. I am a YA junkie and LITERALLY its the same story over and over again.

      Hey, Cassandra Clare author of The Mortal Instrument series started out writing fanficiton, so you’re fanatasy is not so far fetched. I love your story Wrenfield Hall and thinnk you’re a lovely writer.

      • Anonymous

        Thanks! Did you read that series? I tried SO hard to get into it but I felt that it was overly complicated and too much of a ripoff of Harry Potter. I really wanted to like it, as it was recommended by our town librarian, who is a full-fledged unicorn, but just couldn’t get into it. I didn’t realize Clare had started in FF until I had just about given up on it. I gave it another go but couldn’t do it. I think I had that first book from our library for like three months..

          I had a hard time getting into the series at first but I was absolutely hooked by the 2nd and 3rd.

          I hear you re: Harry Potter comment, on the other hand I felt she contributes enough of her own original ideas it didn’t bother me, especially once you get into the books. Unlike other books, such as The Mysterious Benedict Society… OMG…such a direct rip-off, I felt I was literally reading about Harry in another setting. (I read a lot of YA because my mom is a middle school librarian and she hands me about 10 books to read every time I visit ;))

          Other good series (that fall in the YA urban fantasy/romance/adventure) are basically any series by Scott Westerfeld (his work is very original and very easy to get into, esp. Uglies) or Holly Black.

            By the way, I miss when Stephenie used to recommend books through her website and (way back when) through Twilight Moms. They were always really good books. I wonder what Stephenie is reading now?! *coughcoughAHEM* Not that we WANT to know or anything… not that I am waiting to see an update on her website to that effect…

            Of course I can imagine that would be fraught with complications nowadays, too. I imagine a book she recommends would be nearly as big as an Oprah endorsement.

          • The Plane Friend

            I wish Stephenie would make more recommendations, too. Through her, I’ve found Shannon Hale and a few others. Then reading Shannon Hale’s blog, I found Megan Whalen Turner and have more on my to-be-read list. I like authors I like making recommendations. I’m so much more likely to enjoy those books than things I randomly pick up off the shelf.

          • http://twitter.com/tracitalynne Traci Olsen

            I just finished Maggie Stievater’s Shiver and it’s sequel Linger. SOooo good- werewolves, not vampires, and the werewolves rarely rip their shirts off all willy nilly. Sweet love story, well written, funny, cute, angsty. She’s got a great blog, too. Recommend!

            Ooh, also, not YA, but I am a marketer for a girl named Jen DeLucy and she is writing a series, the first one is Seers of Light and her vamp is TASTY. I actually read her book before I went to work for the company, so I am just a SuperFan.

            Okay, I swear that was not a spammy tasteless plug. I am on my free time right now!

  • MariaCecilia

    Of course you are Normal, by definition, since you are on LTT!
    I totally sympathize since I am constantly reminded of things Twi, but unfortunately can never count on anything but blank stares if I voice my thoughts. Last night my son asked me if I trusted him, and I immediately replied that “like Bella says when Edward asks her if she trusts him in Twilight: “In theory.”
    Amused and condescending smirk from said son, and I sighed internally…no one will ever understand how RELEVANT my Twilight references are!

  • JustGoWithIt

    Well I had a questioning my normalcy moment the other week. I posted something on LTR, something about doing a Edward’s hair and makeup comparison through the movies, you know, for fun. I mentioned a certain pro-Robsten blog. A person commented in a way that insinuated that I had lost it, although she could have been just joking. I mean why would you be reading through (and posting) on Letters To Rob if you were not harboring your own Twilight/Rob obsession? No, she must have been making fun WITH me, not of me. I’m normal.

  • TongueTwied

    100% Normal. I’ve been known to direct friends to exact page numbers of scenes or refer to chapter titles at least where a particular scene is.

    added trivia for you next gettysburg trip: Jackson Rathbone is a descendent of Stonewall Jackson

    good luck with your manuscript. I think we would all like to meet Stephenie to thank her…and ask her a few questions. :)

  • natteringyeahrobber

    Everyone is allowed an obsession or two. Even three. Before LTR/LTT, mine was handbags. Totally went out of control, at some point I think I owned like 15 handbags at the same time. I was able to stop myself and I quit TPF cold turkey (if you don’t know what TPF is, consider yourself lucky, LOL). I’m down to just a few bags now, one of which is Twilight related (that brown leather bag Bella carried for just a few scenes in Twilight – it was hanging off her bedroom chair in New Moon). It’s great because when I carry it, I’m reminded of Twilight, but the bag doesn’t give me away as a Twilight fanatic to just anyone. Just other detail-oriented Twilight fans. I do secretly hope someone one day stops me on the street and whispers…”Bella’s bag, right?”

      • natteringyeahrobber

        The rain jacket from La Push, brown one from parking lot, the pocketed blue number? Owning her jacket is normal, especially since you are ONLY 29. I’m pushing 40 and carrying around Bella’s purse for Chrissakes. It’s funny, there is a good Rob photo porn thread on the handbag site (TPF) I used to frequent. And if I remember correctly, a Twilight thread or two on that site, too.

          I love that you know about ALL the jackets she has…..and she has a bunch thoughout the movies (I have the blue one)

            She does! I think I like the yellow one from NM the most. Or the brown hoodie from NM on La Push w/ Jake in the infamous “So you’re a werewolf” pause, break the fourth wall: “So you guys are watching a movie about werewolves, btw.”

  • Stacey

    This is completely not normal, but I was watching BIG Love on HBO last night and I kept thinking about Twilight. Not because, Stephenie’s Mormon, but just randomly thinking Edward’s kind of bossy like Bill Henderson is to his wives. Then that kind of spun off into what if Edward was a polygamist. Would he have a bunch of sister wives running around Forks and would Jessica be one! Then it spun off into would Bella rebel from Edward’s demands like she did in New Moon which would be similar to what Barb(one of the wives) is doing on the show? It was odd. And all I was drinking was raspberry seltzer.

    Then I started watching that show Shameless on Showtime and that show is so crazy you couldn’t tie it together at all…except that New Moon is now on Showtime OnDemand, so I started thinking about that. It’s a downward Twi spiral, my friends.

    • natteringyeahrobber

      You know Jessica would be a wife. In a heartbeat. She wants in. She’s always wanted in. She wants “together together.” Jessica would be Edward’s overly loyal wife. When Edward messes up with one of the wives, she fixes, just because she wants a happy household for her Edward. She is the planner wife – she probably even coordinates the weddings for all the other Edward wives, you know?

      • Stacey

        Jessica would be the ‘Nikki’ of the Cullen sister wives. She would make them all cry with her insensitive comments. Angela would be like the quiet one, who does the laundry. Bella would be the rebel with her flirty glances at the neighbor, Jacob Black. It would be pretty funny.

        • natteringyeahrobber

          Angela on constant laundry duty, LMAO! Betcha she “accidentally” bleaches a lot of Bella’s clothes!

    “I’ve been reading Jane Austen and start phrasing my sentences in Regency period English.” Oh I do this!!! Sigh. Just imitation of what I read–I try not to read Twilight before working on my novel as to avoid “chagrin”, “glower”, and those weird overemotional moments of brooding. (my characters are both really non-broody)

    On Alice, I like to think that she understood Bella needed to get out her emotions through cleaning. Doing dishes always helps me with that.

    Fingers crossed on your novel!!! :)

    I am reminded more about Twilight in my everyday life if I see something that is connected to a former LTT post or joke. If I see anything about Chris Hanson (he was trending last night on Twitter… he must have been on guard about what you were going to write today), Taylor Swift, Alpacas, McDonalds, Olive Garden, breadsticks, alpacas, my alpaca sweater, Vanity Fair, a breakdown, a leg hitch, Biggest Loser, purple, green, … my mind jumps to something related to LTT and by extension Twilight. That’s a lot of stuff every day. I guess being a LTT reader for a year and a half has had its impact on me. Stop brainwashing me! I’ll be good…I promise.

    I am not nearly as enthralled with Twilight as I used to be, and find myself rarely focusing on it in my everyday life (outside of LTT time, of course). Actually, it kind of wore off the moment when the crazies first descended (that is when, thankfully, I found LTT, otherwise I’m afraid I’d be a full-blown hater by now simply out of frustration toward the wacky ones.) Sometimes I run across the fandom for other authors and series (Cassandra Clare, Holly Black, etc.) online, on Twitter, etc., and I am a tad bit jealous because those authors are really good at mingling with their fan base, answering questions regularly, etc. because their fan base is smaller (though still large) and also just not filled with crazies. It’s unfortunate that authors like Stephenie and J.K. Rowling (yes, I know, that comparison again, but I can’t think of anyone else really) who are so talented in their own ways but are shunned to the background because they’re just so incredibly in the spotlight and simply don’t have the freedom or can’t operate the same way as most other authors can. I am really frustrated about that aspect of Twilight – to the extent that it’s a series that really isn’t that enjoyable to concentrate on anymore. I have a feeling the craze will die down once the movies are over and maybe Stephenie can come out of the woodwork a little and at least give us another book to enjoy. (If she wants to. Not that she HAS to. Or should. You know…) (Same goes for JK Rowling by the way).

    I have gone really off topic. Again. I guess that’s what happens when I try to procrastinate.

  • Stella

    I am just gonna say ditto to all of that goodness! NORMAL! Oh and yesterday a silver Volvo (just like the one Edward drove in Twilight) drove into the parking lot at the post office and I actually waited to see who got out of the car before I drove away!!! As if Edward was going to materialize or something…NORMAL! Some young girl popped out and I felt really lame like she KNEW I was looking for Edward or something. Then I thought, at least I didn’t go as far as buying his car!! Ha!

    • ladyofthemeadow

      Totally normal, Stella. I sometimes take a detour to home just to pass by a house with “Edward’s car”. Once I saw it in the grocery store parking lot and got all flustered when I saw a middle aged woman get out. I even priced them out, just for for fun. All this without the knowledge of my hubby and kids!

    So, this convo just happened in the other office by me between two of my female coworkers:

    CW1: Hm. So did you talk to that guy from Company Name?
    CW2: Not yet… what was his name, Pancho?

          I was thinking it would be funny if your husband had a nickname (we always name our cars, now that I think about it, I don’t know if that is something everyone does) for the car, which might be funny in combination with the fact that it is Edwards car. My husband named our car after the daughter we never had (we’ve got boys), just like Stephanie did with Bella.

            Yes, my car is Cecile. We’ve been through a lot, me and my Corolla, but it’s never led me astray. Only been to the shop once (after I hit a curb and need realignment) and I got it 2002! Best.car.ever. (Cecile is named after the song “I think I’m gonna like it here” from the Annie musical. The lyric goes “Cecile will pick out all your clothes.” It just popped in my head during car naming time. These things happen.)

          The obvious would be stupid shiny Volvo, but that is a little long, and kind of insulting.

          • TeamSeth

            I think Stu might be the way to go. Not only is it shortened for stupid shiny volvo, it’s got a fun roundabout rob reference. That’s like how I want to name my dachshund Spade if I ever get one… ‘cuz David Slade has a dachshund, but I don’t want it to be Slade (how obvious, ahem) Told Mr. Seth and he LOVED the name Spade. WIN!

    I would totally think I wrote this letter if I didn’t know that I don’t have multiple personalities. :D

    LOVE IT! :D

    me n my roommate use twilight talk in daily conversations ALL the time. like even today, she was really mad at something and she was like “distract me.” without thinking, i referred to when edward says that in twilight after he rescues bella from those psychos. she immediately burst out laughing. so yeah… plane friend, you are as normal as any other twilight fan(atics) :)

    Oh so totally normal. I think about it Every. Day. EVERY DAY. Dreaming, awake, all of it. I have THEORIES! Lots of them!

    I have knit Bella’s mittens, both the La Push hat AND the stripey green Eclipse hat, AND Alice’s fingerless mitts, and I wear them all the time and it makes me OH SO HAPPY. When I make pasta, I always think, “I am making Italiano!” Oh, and a good friend of mine complains about her British boss all the time, and his name is Edward, so it’s fun to sit with her and complain about Edward. Edward Edward Edward.

    there’s more, but I think I have embarrassed myself enough for one comment. ;)

    • JustGoWithIt

      Well that is a plus for your friend if you enjoy hearing her bitch about her boss. I have a great boss right now, but I have had bosses in the past that I could have complained about endlessly.

        I do like to hear her bitch, because dude, Edward is old school British crazy. He *dictates* his emails to a secretary, who then emails them. It’s fantastic.

        • TeamSeth

          HE DICTATES HIS CORRESPONDENCE?! That’s like…that’s like… Wow. How early 19th century.

      Her name’s Bella! Wow, now I will be thinking about this each time I make pasta…

      You made her GIANT mittens from the Twi ice doesn’t help the uncoordinated scene? Awesome!

      • Tracitalynne

        I did, they are absurd, so I made them flip-top so they would be actually functional. Knitters be crazy; the minute anything is knitted onscreen, someone has deconstructed it and made a pattern.

      Reading this I just realized I’m wearing a plaid flannel shirt and an index finger ring. AHHH!! The power of Twi.

    Not unrelated: On http://www.bellasugar.com there is an interview section with 13 Twilight fans with Twilight tattoos. They didn’t get proud owners of truly botched Edward tattoos, but oh well.

  • Lindsay’s Friend Val

    Yeah that’s totally normal!
