Twilight: It STILL follows me everywhere

Dear Twilight,

Moon & I started having a conversation late last week about “When it’s over.” With Breaking Dawn wrapping filming in Louisiana and moving to the last shooting location, the reality that eventually this saga will come to an end is becoming more clear. Sure- we have awhile before the next film let alone the last one. But once filming wraps & besides the weeks leading up to the films’ releases, Twilight-world will be QUIET. Can you imagine that drastic change in all of our lives? I can’t. I’ll let Moon lead us in that discussion sometime soon, but it got me thinking about how wrapped up Twilight is in my life. We’ve discussed it time-and-time before, and to be honest, I can’t believe it hasn’t let up!

For example: we had an impromptu get-together Friday night at our loft & our friend Dan asked, “How’s work?” To which I responded, “It’s okay. Hot Tub sales are slow but I’ve been traveling a lot to some different trainings.” He quickly corrected, “Oh no! I mean the blogs!!!” Still to this day my guy friends want to discuss my ahem “work!”

Welcome to the neighborhood, Brookie

Twilight STILL follows me everywhere. On Saturday, LTT-turned real-life friend turned role-play partner of Moon’s @Brookelockart moved into new digs in Philadelphia. Mr. Choice & I went to help her move in (and due to the fact that it’s a 3rd floor walk-up, the muscles in my legs are now broken for as long as Bella & Edward will love each other. Which is forever. Thanks Brookie). Outside of the U-HAUL truck, I noticed a little present to welcome Brookie to the neighborhood. I pointed it out to her and said “Look- Jacob brought you a dream catcher.” And no lie, a dream catcher was on the ground just outside of the truck. And I swear-to-you- it was not there when I first arrived to help.

As seems to be my Sunday afternoon/early evening routine these days, I tend to stalk people I barely know on Facebook, “like” pictures I was tagged in 2-3 years ago & just overall reminisce about the past. Yesterday was no different and that meant I looked through all 1,018 pictures in which I’m tagged. And what I found was… well, Twilight is still everywhere

For example:

In 2009, I got tagged in a picture posted by a family member because some girl I don’t know did her senior thesis on Gender Stereotyping in literature- focusing on Twilight:

I bet she got an A

My sister went to Spain- and then tagged me in a picture of Twilight in Spanish:

No comprendo

In December 2008 my friend Tagged me in THIS picture with the caption spelled exactly how I have it listed below:

Believe it or not, this was the dude from twilite in 88

Edward?

My Grandmother bought me THIS for Christmas 2 years ago & shared it with all her Facebook friends:

And who could forget that EPIC moment in the summer of 2008 when I was sitting on the beach reading the final pages of Breaking Dawn, and some family member dared interrupt me for a group picture:

LET ME READ ABOUT THE HALF-VAMPIRE BABY IN PEACE!

And of course as I was internet-stalking/reminiscing about the last 6 years old my life captured on Facebook forever, I was listening to iTunes on shuffle. And shuffle it did- to THIS beautiful audio-clip:

Audio clip: Adobe Flash Player (version 9 or above) is required to play this audio clip. Download the latest version here. You also need to have JavaScript enabled in your browser.

IT follows me- EVERYWHERE! And for some reason, it still surprises me… even after all this time!

Don’t change, Twilight. I’m not ready to say good-bye to you quite yet,

Love,
UnitendedChoice

Where has Twilight followed YOU lately!? Share in the comments! And whoa- the actors haven’t even arrived in Vancouver yet and we ALREADY have more info & pictures leaked than we did the entire time they were in Louisiana? Phew- gives us something to talk about later this week!

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

      IKR? Where the heck are all the romance movies to replace Twilight?

      I want love triangles with hot guys and passionate love/unrequited love or passionate admiration from afar..

      Titanic, The notebook, Twilight Saga – That’s IT? That’s all we get?

      doesn’t take a genius to figure out that judging by the huge response to these movies there’s a gaping market gap here!!!! Heck We’ll even follow Ross and Rachel for months and even the skinny lovesick Miles from Frazier in our 100’s of thousands.

      Hollywood – your audience is speaking to you but you aint listening!!

      Maybe this is your next mission dear LTT….write some scripts and get ‘em made into the movies we wanna see!

      ooh or maybe we could do a “fantasy movie league” and pick our fave books and actors…..

      There’s this Brazilian undewear model….

      • JustGoWithIt

        Well we may have the Hunger Games movies to look forward to, right? They are bound to bump up the romance on those, right?

        • Nelle

          I liked the Hunger Games but sorry – just never got the romance. The guy see left behind seemed like a hunk but never really came on strong- and the guy she went to the games with seemed kind of wimply. And she was kind of wishy-washy on them both. Not like Bella who couldn’t make up her mind but was at least, obsessive, about both guys. Not making sense- but Hunger Games just didn’t do it for me romance-wise.

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

            I am with you. (TEAMGALE!) Katniss was totally like, Meh, whichevs, I don’t care so much I have no sexuality at all I am just gonna let myself get pushed into a fake relationship and then huh wha? you want me to overthrow the capitol well I guess I can try. Which one is the dude I am supposed to make out with? Is it the naked one?

          • JustGoWithIt

            Katniss does have two guys professing their love for her. That is something to work with darn it. I’m hoping it will be good.

          • JustGoWithIt

            I know, but I think it could be pushed. It would never be as good as Edward/Bella/Jacob, but it could be good. If they pushed the tension between Katniss and Peeta. They do get together in the end, so I don’t think it would be butchering the story to add a little more romantic interest.

          • Anonymous

            Katniss hasn’t opened her eyes to the possibility because of her hard life and possibly hard heart. She is untrusting. Gale is the one that knows her best and the one she is most comfortable with. Then Peeta is sensitive where Gale is not. It could get juicy, if the story continued.

      • MariaCecilia

        I read The Time-traveller’s wife last week, cried, and then had to go rent the movie..which was not as good as the book, but nevermind. There is some romance for you – loved it! But I bet they could probably ruin that one too by making it into a TV-series. With vampires. Time-travelling vampires. *sigh*

          Holy crow I SOBBED at the end of Time Traveler’s Wife. (the movie, meh. A little in the meadow (!) but that was mostly because I was already invested from the book.)

        • cosi bella

          Time Travellers wife – Didn’t read the book – just saw the movie. Was hoping that it had some of the “notebook” magic in it cos I loved Rachel McAdams in that – but nope – just wasn’t in the same league. How hard is it to produce …oh I’m not greedy…say 5 really great romance movies a year? …even made for TV/straight to video……ahm not picky……
          (cosi bella really really secrectly hoping that some hollywood types read LTT – lol!)

            Okay FULL DISCLOSURE I do marketing for this girl, but I actually knew her and read her book before working for the publisher. (read: I am not a spammer I swear please don’t make me leave LTT) She is working on the 3rd in the series and it is super romance hotness and paranormal but in an awesome way. ALSO: No Fade to Black. ahem.
            here is a link to the book if you are interested, but no pressure just sharing knowledge srsly you people keep me sane:

            K then. If it’s got the right story line as you say – Get one of the top Twi fan fic writers to do a movie script (Not the one who did they script for the TT wife – it didn’t ‘work’ did it?) – there’s only one fan fic author I’ve read and that is Blueandblack. sure she’ll do an epic job.

            BUT -Moon and UC Have to be on board as “creative directors” or “romance directors” …I dunno what the job title would be…watchin every single “daily” and screaming NOOOOOO whenever they get it wrong….!!! :))))

            Dude, I think they should do a fan fic contest to ghost write Midnight Sun.

    We’re staying with family this week and there’s a dreamcatcher hanging from the bedroom ceiling. My thoughts: ‘Isn’t that supposed to hang from the headboard? That’s where Bella’s goes.’
    Also, I just woke up early from a dream where I was involved in filming a vampire movie that suddenly became vampires vs. zombies in a toy store. Huge, adrenaline filled fight scene, but totally bloodless because they had to add the special effects in later. Normal?

    • Anonymous

      I guess I was a Twilight fan before Steph even knew she wanted to be a writer. I totally used to have a small dreamcatcher on my headboard for my bed (for years!) that I think I got from girl scouts or something when I was a kid. It was made with turqoise leather, had black netting in the middle and white and black beads and white feathers.

      AND I dreamt about wolves last night! (sans dreamcatcher) I never actually saw them in my dream though, just knew they were out there and that they might want to eat me. :(

      • MariaCecilia

        You are one prophetic girl! And don’t worry, those cute wolves only want to nibble a little. All good!

    • natterinyeahrobber

      The few times I’ve used dreamcatchers, I’ve had nightmares. Come to think of it, Bella didn’t have luck with her dream catcher either…

      As for your dream, totally normal if you were working for Summit. Since you were in a toy store, there would be lots of potential for entire displays to get knocked over. The zombies could knock over Twilight merchandise displays and snap Edward dolls in half while playing Thriller on kazoos. Vampires could back at the zombies with insults like “at least we have merchandise displays…what do zombies have? You guys have not been merchandised since Scooby Doo…”

      • cosi bella

        lol. I really really wanna see Zombies playing kazoos!!!

  • Anonymous

    So the question remains. Brookelockart? Did you hang the dreamcatcher on your headboard? ‘Cause, you know, maybe Jacob will climb up the tree outside your bedroom window and visit you shirtless in the middle of the night if you did. I mean. He did leave you the dreamcatcher afterall. ;)

    • Stacey

      A woman I know gave a dream catcher to help with bad dreams for her child and I said (Of course, without thinking), “Just like Bella got from Jacob!” She looked at me like I was nuts.

      Then…I met a baby named Bella at my kid’s music class. I keep having to say in my head…DO NOT MENTION TWILIGHT…DO NOT MENTION TWILIGHT…instead of singing the Itsy Bitsy Spider. Ugh.

      • Anonymous

        Well, Isabella was the #1 baby name for 2009 and #2 for 2010….. Bella also made the top 100. So you may be running into this problem more and more. ;)

        I don’t know about you, but I’d bet a LOT of money that the name Isabella (and Bella for that matter) saw a spike in popularity since… when was it that Twilight first came out? 2004? (I didn’t sign on until 2008 right when BD came out… late comer, I know.)

        I have a 4 and 6 year old…. I should start paying attention to the number of Isabellas there are in their classes.

        And maybe you should ask Bella’s mommy about the name. Maybe not mention Twilight outright because she could either start gushing, get annoyed or get ticked…. so feel it out. Maybe she’s a crazy. You could do a letter here on LTT about her. ;) Or maybe she’s not crazy, she just named her kid that for other reasons, and maybe she’s an LTTer or LTT lurker….. you never can tell.

        • Anonymous

          I have this weird hobby of looking up baby name stats so I’m familiar with the trends of which you speak. (*normal*) And yes, Isabella did spike in popularity around that time and has continued going strong. Also around that time Jacob kicked Michael out of the top spot in years. It is still up there. Edward hasn’t made a comeback though. I think it is just a little too old-fashioned.

          • Anonymous

            “Edward hasn’t made a comeback though. I think it is just a little too old-fashioned.”
            Or maybe it is because they don’t want to name their kid after someone they had the hots for. I mean, that would bother me…

    I know what you mean! I was at the Philly outlet mall the other day and heard a song from the New Moon soundtrack! It was the first thing I noticed when we walked into Wilson’s Leather.

    One day, they may ease up on marketing Twilight merchandise, and it won’t be all over the place anymore reminding us, but then I can turn to scrapbooking the umpteenth magazines I have collected over the years, and that will tide me over to whatever comes first; retirement, heart attack or becoming a vampire…(Ooo, I must start doing print screens of all your most awesome blogs!

    You guys. I think about Twilight in some form or another Every. Day. And not just when I read this insane blog. I mean, this normal blog. I am one of those people who were like, “Pssht. Why would I read some stupid YA book? Okay I am on vacation, I will read it for a laughOMGNOBODYF**KINGTALKTOMEIAMREADING4BOOKSINONEWEEK.

    Twilight quite literally changed my life in a profound way (not hyperbolic. I am trying to figure out a way to write about it that doesn’t make me sound insane, but it’s true. Hubs can attest.) I am hoping there will always be a community of die-hards, like there is for Star Trek or Dr. Who or like, Civil War re-enactors or something. Oh, internet, I love you.

    • natterinyeahrobber

      Summit will make us all wait exactly one year after the release of the final Breaking Dawn for a “big announcement.” The big announcement will of course be the Twilight television series. Then we’ll have to wait another year for casting. There will a “So You Think You Can Be Edward and Bella” reality show where the audience can be in charge of casting. And a “Dances with the Wolves” reality show too (will be confusing at first, but Kevin Costner will be a guest judge to blur the lines between movie and reality show) for Jacob & other wolf-casting. As soon as Edward is cast, there will be a faux-reality show called “Being Edward” which will provide a behind-the-scenes look at the daily life of Edward. Basically, what he does when Bella is not around, like eat ground squirrels and thunder arm wrestle with Emmett.

      It won’t end. Don’t worry. And count me in for any non-battle re-enacting events.

        I was thinking that in 10 or 15 years, Hollywood will be looking back at it’s money makers and deciding which films they need to remake for new audiences. Twilight Saga might be on that list…

        • natterinyeahrobber

          You are right. And there will have to be a Twilight prequel (or two or three) too – showing how Edward killed time those other 100+ years, and maybe a racy romance about Charlie and Renee in the groovy 1970’s (fondue dates and Tupperware-turned-key parties).

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

            Okay if any of those things happen I might die of second hand embarrassment. Except if the dude playing Edward is really hot and we get to see him sitting around reading medical texts while trying not to listen to everyone else in the house humping. I would actually pay money to see that.

            I am actually not opposed to a Twilight remake once the original cast is too old and has moved on. Perhaps next time they could film the meadow scene…IN A MEADOW. (deep, cleansing breath)

            You know how they kept making Star Trek movies with the original cast members, and we had Fat Kirk and Fat Scotty and Ancient Wrinkly Spock? What if they keep making sequels with the original cast of Twilight, and we have Pudgy Bella and Wrinkly Edward? It may be even worse because they will try to make them seem eternally 17 years old with corsets and wigs and wierd facial prosthetics Not pretty!

          • natteringyeahrobber

            It wouldn’t be pretty. But I’d love to see them all at age 39, in high school, still trying to pass for 17. Bella still shopping at Forever 21 and Old Navy. Edward in that same tweed jacket, only now it is way too tight. They can keep deluding themselves, telling themselves vampires don’t age. Other students will snicker at them, call them names like “adult learners” (that’s what happened to me when I went back to school at age 31 – the younguns in my program called me “the adult learner” – ouch, worse than any curse word, really).

            And the spidermonkey scene – Edward throws out his back and Bella falls off his deck before they even make it up the hill into the trees.

            Please Summit/Condon do NOT give us any good pre-vampire flashbacks. But if you do (and I encourage you NOT to), please let the flashback include a fleshy rosy naked Edward in a big clawfoot bathtub. Slowing sponging himself from toes to neck, while Uma Thurman watches (leftover footage from Bel Ami would work, you don’t even have to shoot this scene for BD). Whatever you do, please do NOT show pre-vampire Edward in a bathtub, sponging his human form.

          • sw_twi_fan

            Or they could have sequels. Like when Renesmee comes of age, and Jacob can actually like her without being too pervy. George Lucas has allowed others to officially write stories, from full length to graphic novels, in the Star Wars universe. I think the Twi universe/characters can be just as big and diverse. If Stephenie isn’t feeling the Twi-muse anymore, she could let other people write for her because I think there’s still a huge appetite for it. Look at all the Twi fanfics.

      Traci, I’m with you… I was a “literary snob” who would “never read a book about Vampires and Wherewolves”. Eventually borrowed them from my eldest daughter [who kept telling me they were great] last March, when I had run out of “mainstream” and read them in 5 days. Hardly slept and stopped cooking for those days [luckily, had lots of frozen meals I'd previously cooked otherwise Hubs would have starved]. I’ve never read [and reread and reread] a series I’ve enjoyed so much [any genre]. I’m the addicted one in the family….4 books and a Novella, just aren’t enough !!! These books and Movies “are my own personal form of Heroin”, I’m not ready to “stop using”!!!! “God Bless” Stephenie Meyer, Moon, UC, plus all you wonderful LTT members, you keep me giggling and reaffirm I’m “totally normal” and have excellent taste.

    It is funny to think about how many times I might re-read those books in my lifetime. I’m not going to start counting. I still don’t own Twilight (I’ve got New Moon and Eclipse, won’t hesitate when BD 1 & 2 come out), that may have to change.
    Twilight merch.: I don’t have any particular desire to own calendars or T-shirts or large NKOTB style Twilight shirt pins. EDWARD! BELLA! But I can fully picture them being worth $$ in the future when they are no longer freshly produced. Probably even now original Twilight (movie and book 1) are worth something on ebay

ALL BLACK AND RED…All I could think about was twilight…and than my cell phone rings…of course you know Bella’s theme is my ringtone…so I bought 10 pair. Too bad there wasn’t any purple…”Purples Cool”…

    Don’t worry! The Twi Reunion tours will start in like two years! You know the wolf pack, Newton/Yorkie and all the Volturi guard will be there. And then they’ll be back the next year and then the next until the are way into theie 60’s. Oh and Boo Boo and the little girl playing THE BABY will be married. (An arranged one set up by their managers.) It will go on forever.

    I’ll miss Twilight. Luckily, I will still have Somerhalder and you know, Paul on VampDi. The great thing about TV shows is that they can go on for a very long time until cancellation. Plus new episodes weekly. Yay TV!

    • JustGoWithIt

      That’s right. I didn’t even think of that…reunions. Of course their will be.
      Robert Pattinson has it freaking made with a forever type fan base thanks to playing our dearly devoted and immortal boyfriend Edward. Raise your hand if you’re likely to see any movie staring Rob probably for the rest of his acting career, or see any show you can get yourself to if he has a music career that takes off.

        yeah I will watch anything he and KStew do (on film! er, I mean, in the movies! for public consumption! yikes!). I am glad they seem to make the kinds of movies I like. There are only so many romcoms I can take.

    • cosi bella

      …yeah and Twilight will develop a Rocky horror show style cult following for decades to come and we’ll all be there with our fading wolf tatoos and and Volturi capes at midnight showings

      ..and there’ll be a whole audience dialogue like the newspapers in Rocky horror except we’ll bring baseball caps and put them on during the baseball sene and yell “Spider Monkey!!!” in unison and “Wig fail!!!” every time there’s a really bad wig moment

      …And we’ll be word perfect and join on on the “it’s not a LIFESTYLE choice Bella!” (cos certain actors will be clay-aitken-style out of the closet by then with their adopted babies ….

      Twilight For EVA and EVA !!

      • natteringyeahrobber

        I’m all for this. I’ll be there with my best Bella prom dress, black Converse and fake cast. Only I can rarely make it to midnight anymore…so can these showings be at 3 p.m. on a workday instead? I’d rather ditch work for this sort of event.

        • TeamSeth

          Just drink so caffeine. I know how you have a low tolerance for it…

          • Anonymous

            It would take 5 cups of coffee. And after that much coffee, I’d be out of control. I’d just have play Edward in that scene where he opens the car door for Bella (outside the Cullen house, when she first comes over). Maybe I can make a cardboard Volvo and just circle around it at 50 mph, opening & closing the passenger door constantly.

            You mean the whooosh-whooosh noise? That’s a given, since after 5 cups of coffee I’ll be hyperventilating into a paper bag (instant sound-effects!)

    LOL the guy in that picture is definitely not the “dude from twilite in 88″ but I do know him LOL, he was part of a very successful (at least in Spain, México, etc) and very young pop group back in like 1981 I swear God I still got some awful LP disc somewhere…

    • TeamSeth

      I don’t get why pocket eddies all look like they’re about to rip someone’s heart out. Edward’s usually looking broody with that sourpuss pursed lip thing as if he has fake fangs in, or he’s smiling at Bella. The like 5 times he’s all angry face I hate you jacob/volturi/james does not constitute a permanent action figure face. I’m very sad about this.

    • natteringyeahrobber

      I love Edward drinking TruBlood (too bad it isn’t partially concealed in a brown paper bag).

  • TeamSeth

    Who knew Edward was married in ’88.

    Twi just shows up daily in little things. Little quotes here and there, Goodwill having Twilight for sale at the same price as Rite Aid, constantly wondering if people can read minds, explaining to friends/family how Mr. Seth felt after not getting a really awesome job as “it’s like a huge hole has been punched in his chest. The absence of the job is everywhere he looks. He wakes up in a panic attacks from nightmares every night. He’s not like a car you can fix up. He’s never gonna run right.” Etc. You know, it’s just in all sorts of things, scattered throughout the day.

    • JustGoWithIt

      That’s great. I like it. Universally usable explanation for the misery of loss. Cue Mr. Seth staring out the window for months at a time and waking up screaming in the night and Charlie coming to comfort him…………..wait a minute.

      • TeamSeth

        Hm. I like that because we share a bed!

  • cosi bella

    lol. I have no idea how to fnd him again. I didn’t save his image. I just remember thinking wow! he’s got that certain something that Jacob/taylor thing going on……I refuse to look him up any further for fear of finding out that he’s planning his civil union with his long term lover ‘Fillipe’.

    There’s something to be said for the cliche “ignorance is bliss” either that or I can always hope that I’m reincarnated as a gay man.

    :))))

    I’ve been considering life after Twilight ever since I read my first Twilight book! I was so totally engrossed by reading and then I had the dreadful thought that one day, the books would be all read, and my rollercoaster ride would be over. It was almost like realizing that my secret addiction had to end! And I had barely started!

    But then I discovered the movies, and they gave me a new lease on life… then I discovered fanfic… and I’m still (kind of) on the rollercoaster!

    • Anonymous

      Yeah, if Stephenie doesn’t release any other Twi related books, at least we have fanfic. Sweet, sweet, fan fiction.

  • Anonymous

    OMG! I’m watching Chuck and there was a bear skin rug in the first 5 minutes! Had to come and share :)

    • ladyofthemeadow

      Thanks for sharing.

      The poor girl who just got voted off The Bachelor looks a teeny bit like Bella. I can’t turn off my Twilight lens on the world. So embarrassing when my nearest and dearest have moved on. At least we can share here and feel normal.

  • thischickrunswithvampires

    “Annoyed UC.” :) That’s how I felt – every phone call or interruption at work (the book tucked under my sweater), or stop light (enough time to read a paragraph), or my hungry toddler and husband, was REALLY annoying. I actually lost a few pounds that week.

    I just don’t want to reach the point where I DON’T think about it on a regular basis, or when the great book moments don’t (gasp!) give me butterflies!!! At least now I can actually read books or watch movies that aren’t Twilight-related. It’s not always in my head now, and I miss that crazy person of the early Twilight days. Too bad I spent almost an hour last night trying to figure out how to purchase the white-covered copies…so she’s not completely gone…

  • Bubs

    Don’t know about the rest of the Twilight world but in the Sutherland Shire [in Sydney, Australia] there are ‘Eclipse’ type Volvo’s EVERYWHERE. Considering we’re a long way from Sweden and they’re all being driven by women…a coincidence ? I think not. Today confirmed it – Hubs n I were on our way to the movies to see Hereafter [we really liked it] and coming in the other direction was “Edwards car” with a number plate that read “Bella 7″ [we can order personalised plates here]. Every time I see a Volvo……great product placement on their part and a continual reminder for me. May the Saga continue……

      Oh you Sydney-siders, so flamboyant. I’ve yet to spot a Twi numberplate in Melbourne. ;)

      • TeamSeth

        New colours!

  • Bubs

    It’s “THE SHIRE” baby…we’re “special” !!!!! Let’s add “flamboyant” [thank you] and “classy” to that mix …. I’m sure if you take a look around Toorak ["THE SUBURB" in Melbourne for those who don't know what we Aussies are talking about] they’ll be coming out of those palatial driveways in droves…..but will they have “Bella” number plates ????? Nahhhh, Sydney always wins !

      I Graciously acknowledge Syd superiority in Twi numberplates – but don’t get cocky ;)

    Just last night, my new (totes cute) boyfriend was on my computer looking at the SF Weekly online. I’m about to get in the shower and I hear raucous laughter followed by “should I comment on this article as ‘micheal sheen is a DILF?'”

    Ummmm….

    • Anonymous

      well, bonus points for him if he agrees; double bonus points if new boyfriend is michael sheen.

      • TeamSeth

        Yeah, screw McAdams. Though if it was him, and he did comment as MichaelSheenIsADILF, not only would it be pretty cocky, it’d also be him speaking in the third person about himself… you know, like the Taylors in their love articles from before.

        • natteringyeahrobber

          LOL. Well, if Michael Sheen comments in third person, and thought he was a DILF, that would be cocky. But if he prefaced every sentence with “michael sheen is a DILF” i, that would be funny.

          “michael sheen is a DILF who is hungry for thai food tonight.”
          “michael sheen is a DILF who got tired of rachel and ditched her for someone with a more ego-soothing username.”
          “michael sheen is a DILF wants more cozy couch time and less role playing aro time.”

    Yesterday I was shopping at riteaid, and the cashier was speaking to another cashier about some vampire fangs. And she was like, “I thought they would be gone after Halloween but since everyone is so crazy about the vampire thing, it’s still here.”
    I was like :) ……..
    It was funny because I was just thinking about twilight before they brought it up.

  • natteringyeahrobber

    The other week as I was having my teeth cleaned, I heard Claire de Lune in my dentist’s office. That song instantly transports me to Edward’s bedless room. I think that 30 years from now, I’ll still think of that scene when I hear that song (sort of like Massive Attack’s Teardrop – it is now the House song, no going back). Everything in time and space stops when I hear it. In fact, I had to watch a YouTube clip of that scene right after the appointment (thank God for smart phones & headphones – I was on the bus), just for image gratification.

    Slightly unrelated but I just watched twilight with my cousin who has never seen it before and was actually physically unable to stop myself saying all my favourite lines before the actors. Oh and comment on the boufiness of Rob’s hair in various scenes. And tell her random factoids like the fact that the prom pond was full of frogs.

    My cousin is 15 and I was fangirling more than her! Normal?

    She then told my entire extended family that I knew all the lines to twilight… SHE OUTED ME!!! I thought we’d be cool, her being a hormone-riddled teenager and all, but she watched Jacob’s pre- “sort of beautiful” shirt lift and nothing! No squealing AT ALL! She’s 15!!! I’m 22! There’s definitely something wrong with this picture…

    Oh and I totally used Twilight in my dissertation topic like the girl in the pic… all the character names in the stories me and my dissertation partner read to the school kids we were working with were from Twilight. Luckily they were too young to have heard of twilight so we got away with it…. got some funny looks from the teachers though :-)
