Things I miss about Twilight

Dear Twilight,

I’ve had some time to do some thinking on my mini-break while Moon is in Europe & a few things have come to mind: I miss you. I miss when you were EVERYWHERE. Sure you’re still around. And this Fall you’ll be crazy again with Breaking Dawn Part 1, but I miss when everyday things made me think of you & made me laugh in the oddest ways.

I had a great opportunity to meet 2 girls I met through LTT who are from BELGIUM (remember Alice & Bella from Not an Addikt?) this past weekend in New York. I’ll share more about that later, but being with them reminded me of a few things I miss. So without further ado:

Cathy Hardi & her love for the Ultimate “Cougarita” at TGIFridays. Why TGIFridays? Why a big, watered-down margarita? Who knows! But it fits, you know it does:

Click me for ultimate LOLs

Big Daddy and his love for Fish-o-Filet sandwiches (and our inability to call that sammy by the correct name), The Olive Garden & any sort of fried delight:

Buttcrack Santa and all the places he’d pop up. Plus it gave us many excuses to post disgusting pictures of drunk, naked Santa Clauses:

I miss you

Wolfgirl. You early readers will remember when Moon & I started a campaign to marry Taylor Lautner & my youngest sister:

Meeting Stephenie Meyer cause that was just awesome. And this June is really hard without excitement like last year!

I also miss that hairclip. I lost it.

Moon cause she does stuff like this, among other things:

I could go on and on!!! I’ll save more for another time.  What do you miss!?

Love,
UnintendedChoice

    I miss my first time. 

    I miss when Disqus actually liked me and I didn’t have to fight with it to type in the little white box.

  • natteringyeahrobber

    I came to LTT late in the game, so there isn’t much to miss (yet). I still barely get any of the references or how they came about, and when I go to Google to figure out the origins of the Cougarita, I only get lots of links to LTT, none of which offer an explanation. It is if it just simply came to be, like a new species of bird or fern. Who knows how it happened, it just did? Maybe someone with a lot of free time & drawing skills can author an illustrated history of LTT. Or not. But can someone tell me: did Taylor ever even eat a Fillet-o-Fish? 

    • Anonymous

      Yeah, I am late to the game, too. (True Confessions: when I was frantically searching the internet for Normal People, I thought “Letters to Twilight” sounded like a site for 14  year old girls to write misspelled squee-laden insanity. Sorry. I was so wrong, and I missed out on So! Much!)

      An illustrated glossary would be great. I hope stuff like DragonArt gets in.

      • Anonymous

        I thought that too. I thought the letter came from fans all over, rather than mostly two normal people. But, I did assume that since I was looking there, other normal people must write in as well (or it would at least be a laugh reading a few crazy letters), so I gave it a shot.
        I also have to say, I really enjoy LTR’s brand of Rob stalking. Not too serious. Makes me feel like a squealing 14 year old in a good way.

    • Bubs

      An illustrated history ! What a brilliant idea for us latecomers UC. Does anybody have the time to write it ????  :-]

      • Anonymous

        You’ll have to do what every latecomer to LTT/LTR did: go to the archives and start reading letters from day one on.
         I was just a couple of months late and didn’t miss that much, but didn’t feel as a part of this community until I read them all.

    • TeamSeth

      Taylor isn’t the fish eater (oh my, so many ways to take that), his dad is.  Big Daddy Lautner.  TayTay eats the meat patties.

      Cougarita I think just happened. With Cougwicke’s rasta braids, it was the right way … B-list Twi stars and Catherine hanging at a mediocre restaurant bar. Margarita, cougarita, same thing.  I hope she goes on Dancing With The Stars.  That would be a dream come true for me.

      • natteringyeahrobber

        Ahhh. OK. But has Daddy Lautner been caught eating fish sandwiches? Where did that even come from?

        I don’t know, I associate rasta braids with other beverages. Like pina coladas or daquiris or mai tais. Maybe even a cuba libre. Pina Cougada? Cougar Libre?

        • TeamSeth

          CougaLibre! FTW!

        ‘hope she goes on Dancing With The Stars.’ I would watch it.

        Yes, we need a glossary.  I had to do my share of research and sometimes just had to flat out ask.  Now I’ve got my kids saying Jorts.

        On another note, Mr. E made me blush the other day; no not that way.  He told a mother of my dauther’s friend (got it?) that it had been raining so much lately he felt like he was in a scene from Twilight.

    I miss all the crazy people. When Eclipse came out, they all came scurrying out of the woodwork. You know, with their Twilight themed tattoos, crying hysterically on national television news about their love of Jacob and Edward (the ages of these ranged around 14 to 45) and can’t forget about all those stalkers!

    Luckily, the MTV Movie awards are on Sunday. Which means first look at Breaking Dawn (Fingers crossed about the teeth c-section scene! just kidding! Well a little bit), see if Rob and Kristen will finally pucker up (it will be questionable if the even win due to being against the girl on girl kiss of Black Swan. It’s ultimately the tween girl vote against the frat boy one (I’m thinking the boys of Theta Chi will be coming out in force for that one) and awkward Twilight jokes/spoofs by Jason Sukalis. It’s going be great! Oh and “supposedly Ashley and Jackson were caught making out”. I have no idea if this is even true, due to getting my news from E! Online. 

    The fact that I am in my early 30′s and I am absolutely giddy about this is a tad worrisome. I am just going to pretend to read the Wall Street Journal Magazine right now and act cultured. Of course, it doesn’t hurt that there’s a photo spread of Michael Fassbender in it. He would have been lovely in Breaking Dawn. Or I could just ogle Alex Skarsgard in my husband’s GQ. I am so never going to grow up.

      I hate not being able to watch those since I don’t live in the US, and don’t pay extra to get MTV on my TV. I end up having to watch Rob on MTV in YouTube clips when the are posted, or weeks when it gets aired here.

        There’s always several live streams available to watch anywhere in the world (I’m in Europe and our retarded MTV Adria airs every show a week  or so later). go to Twitter or check RobsessedBlog , thinking of Rob or Strictly Rob or similar sites, they post links to the live stream all the time and update them if they don’t work properly. 
        Getting excited!!!!

      Growing up is for suckers. I am considering liveblogging the whole MTV Awards, as I am Freaking The Fuck Out about the BD trailer. Also, I can’t wait for the epic awkwardness. It will be epic.

       Also? J and A making out? Probably! Think about it:
      “Hi. I am super good looking.”
      “Hi! I am also really good looking.”
      “Hey, we are working together/are in proximity.”
      “That we are. Let’s make out!”
      “Okee doke!”

      That right there is Every Actor Ever, from dinner theater to Hollywood.

      • natteringyeahrobber

        You MUST liveblog the MTV Music Awards. Or at least live-Tweet. I don’t have a laptop and the computer is in another room, so I cannot look at both the computer and TV at the same time. And my crappy Blackberry would not be able to handle a liveblogging site, it can’t even handle LTT or LTR. But it can at least handle Twitter.

        I’ll be watching. It will be awkward, no doubt about that, but…Rob does awkward so well. He’d better be there.

        • Anonymous

          I think I will. I am a part time blogger at Twilighters.org, so I think I will post it all there to have room for me writhing on the floor in second hand embarrassment agony. I will tweet the links, and probably the stuff I can’t say on there (prying under-18 eyes and all) (goddam kids messing up my fun)

          Rob wasn’t in the promos, so maybe he is too Cosmopolized to be there?

          • natteringyeahrobber

            Some random fan who recently scored a Rob autograph twittered that she asked Rob if he was going to be there and he said “I think so.”

            So there you have it, it’s official.

            If that’s not an official source, I don’t know what is.

            That is as official as training your dog to walk like you do.

            “I think so”…what kind of horrible assistant does he have? I want that bitch’s job. Oh wait, no I don’t. No fraternizing with the help, and I really don’t think that would work with OPERATION: Best Friends With Benefits.

          • Stacey

            I am sure his assistant told him many times. I am also somewhat sure sweet Robbie was too busy to listen because he was…

            1. Drinking a Henekin and getting distracted when peeling off the label
            2. Prank calling Paul and Ian from Vampire Diaries
            3. Going junk food shopping with TomStu
            4. Writing rap songs in his head to perform the next time he’s on the Graham Norton show. He looked jealous that the guy who plays House got to jam with his jazz band. I think he felt left out.

            Ooh, thanks for reminding me I wanted to find that Graham Norton episode. I used to watch him all the time! My favorite is the one where Marilyn Manson kept sniffing Rhianna and everyone was creeped out.

            The Rob and Reese one was good! Supposedly there is going to be an even better one next month on BBC America with Rob Lowe, Bradley Cooper and Ed Helms. I can’t wait!

            Rob did look a little forlorn on Graham Norton, when Hugh Laurie was belting it out (Hugh Laurie’s singing voice is really odd). He was probably sad he couldn’t join as backup, or at least do his own performance. I would love a Laurie-Pattonson duet. Laurie with his alien soul-singer voice and Rob with his mumble-folk. It would be totally awesome.

          • Anonymous

            I liked that Hugh’s song was about coffee (okay I only listened to part). Rob sould sing about Heinekins for sure!!

            like, not the adorkable RPattz stuff, but just…yish. Yeesh. But wait. I have faith. Faith in the Pattz and the Condon, and the fact that I will be swept up in Tha Momentz by the time AWK!ward comes on. And that sometimes things out of context look worse, like when I am making a really weird face in every single photograph of me, but if I were really making that face all the time nobody would actually talk to me.

            Also I don’t really give a shiz about the wedding. I am all Meh about the wedding.

            Also, outdoor wedding in Forks, WA?  You are kidding, right? 
            And, rumor has it Bill Condon is the minister.  Definitely spotted Stephenie Meyer among the guests, courtesy of screen caps and CTRL +, via Robessed.

            Ha. Good point. It rains every day here! Let’s do an outdoor wedding! Maybe Alice *saw* that it would be good? Still, how to convince the caterers of that? *shrug*

            Outside Wedding in Forks=makes no sense. But I think that’s how Steph wrote it. Maybe because she hasn’t lived in the PNW she forgot how crazy that would be!

          • Anonymous

            I don’t think she did, though. I remember some drama about walking down the Cullen stairs in heels, and how the inside was transformed blah blah just like the graduation party. There was an outdoor, under tent reception but the ceremony was indoors, wasn’t it?…guh. don’t make me go get the books. I am supposed to be working…like a Grown Up. :)

          • TeamSeth

            Indoor ceremony, outdoor reception.  You are correct.  This reminds me of a great and often untapped for the second meaning line:

            “Why’d you move to the wettest place in the continental US?”
            Oh heeyyy

            But the rain in Forks is more of a mist. It’s seriously always “raining” there. Every time I’ve gone (which is like two or three times), it’s rained. But not a proper rain.  Well the one night I camped it was a proper hard rain…spiteful weather.

            However, if there’s stuff hanging down, I’d think that it is under a tent.  I’d rewatch but i can’t see videos at work. I always imagined that the ceremony would be her coming down the stairs then walking towards the area where the birthday cake table of doom was in NM. With Eddie all pleasant looking and her going from spastic nervous to feeling super calm when she sees him (awww). Of course, I have zero faith that Kristen will EVER be able to pull that subtle internal emotional shift… she does 1) “Don’t let me fall.” to her dad; 2) Sees giant crowd and is nervous; 3) Sees gaping empty spot where Jacob should be…her “best man” (eye roll); 4) Sees Edward once she rounds the stairwell (which is assumingly more like movie Twi than NM and Eclipse, oh well, maybe they remade the set more appropriately) and all her concerns disappear and she’s finally happy that she’s getting married to him.

            Little does she know she’ll have a baby in a month and a half. Bahm Bahm Baaaahm.

            restaining from running down the aisle it Edwards arms. No, the movie Bella
            is much too independent (?) for that.

            Ick, right? I never understood why M. Rosenberg never wanted to make Bella *want* to be with Edward. She is just as insane-obsessed as he is, that’s what makes the crazy death-defyingness okay, don’t you get it?! Otherwise there is no story. I think she is trying to make B “independent”, like you say, but it just makes her decisions make no sense. If B is not cross-eyed nuts about E, why risk your life?

            Hey! Where did this tweed come from?!

          • TeamSeth

            No… I think they’ll show her face.  I think it was a teaser for this to make people more anticipatory of whether or not she’ll smile.

            ZOMy lotsa KStew bashing today. Full disclosure, I think she’s lovely. However I did watch the Cake Eaters and was totally impressed until I realized that she was just playing a slightly more impaired Bella. Hm.

          • TeamSeth

            haha, i think she’s lovely too actually. And I did like her as Bella in Twilight. And some in NM too.  She’s especially hot in the Let me try one thing scene.  Eclipse was a little lost on me, but I could hardly finish the book so I think that plays into it a bit.

            She has really gorgeous eyes, not that I’m really an eye person, but exceptional eyes are attention grabbers.  I just wish make-up would quit over curling her lashes! If it’s that big of a deal, just give her fake ones.

            I may have moved on.  I mean, I’m enough of a celeb crush slut to go with all of them, but… Alexander sort of… raises the bar. That scene when he says “I love it” to sookie in bed (season 2 in Dallas hotel dream sequence). I just melt. I fall apart. It’s the hottest thing ever to ever happen (not in RL–love you Mr. Seth!). He’s just so lean, but so built and so tall and so sculpted… he is male body perfection but has a slightly non-perfect face. I love it. ;)  When I was younger, I would always get the stuffed animal with a slight manufacturer defect. No one understood it, but they were so special–one of a kind. That is Skarsgard.

          He just said that to get the Twilight vote. Did he REALLY read them, or did he just watch YouTube clips of Twilight? Wonder what his favorite scenes were. Maybe he’ll incorporate Twilight references into his campaign platform. Illegal immigrants are like Volturi! Climate change means more direct sunlight which means fewer vampires out in the open! Gun control not necessary as long as we have shields like Bella! CarlisleCare, not ObamaCare! Or something like that.

    It has been a long time since I first read the books, so by now I miss enjoying re-reading them. I still pick one up occasionally, but don’t go start to finish, and it’s just not the same as the first time I re-read.
    I miss some member of Twi cast being on a late night show/Ellen pretty much every week.
    It is blasphemy, but I miss Robsten speculation (blasphemy that I say that because I’m with them with how gross the paps are, and find it embarrassing for myself looking at pictures of people looking thoroughly harassed).

  • GracieB

    I miss the crazy, hard-core fans, too.  I was also musing last night about re-reading the books (for the – gulp – 6th time).  I feel like I’ve forgotten why I fell in love with the Saga in the first place.  The lines going from Team Edward, to Team Jacob have blurred into fanfic (embarrassing, I know), and twitter stalking.  BUT, on a happy note, I found LTT, and have spent the last year and a half laughing quietly to myself (loudly, at times, too) over Big Daddy, Cathy Hardi, and all the other crazy stuff you girls post.

      If you are looking to fall in crazylove with Edward again, a friend of mine just got the flu so decided to read Twilight in conjunction with Midnight Sun, and now she is right back into babbling incoherency about the Epicness of Edward.

    Oh, and The Cougarita is real? I really thought that was something made up. I still kind of think it is? Are we sure that image is not fan made? Do we have TGIFridays here in Canada? I think we might, but I don’t think I’ve ever been. I am obviously missing out.

    • operarose

      I am fairly sure it is made up. TGIFridays does have a giant (watery) margarita that they like to brag about. But I am fairly certain it’s not called a cougarita – at least formally.

      My Canadian husband told me he thought Canada used to have TGIFridays but they apparently went out of business (at least in the area where we live). Ironically, later this year I am moving with him to a remote city in South America. When I visited that city last year, I discovered they have no Starbucks, only one McDonalds….but they do have a TGIFridays. And their famous Couga-I mean, margarita. Which I naturally ordered in honor of Cathy.

        Has anyone ever ordered a Cougarita at TGIF, just to find out if the bartender is a Twilight fan? OK, if there is ever a LTT convention, a field trip to TGIF is in order. 40 pitchers of Cougaritas, please!

        • TeamSeth

          I only know of where an applebee’s is near me.  We play trivia there once a month or so…  I’d not been there for seriously two months and the waitress said, “Greyhound?”  Um, yeah…  How did she remember that?!  Insanity.  Though we do tip well cuz it’s late night happy hour.

          • Anonymous

            You go to Applebee’s and play trivia on a regular basis? Twilight trivia? I am dying. That sounds like an ideal situation (I’ve never been to Applebee’s, but I think I get the general idea) I would never start such a thing, I don’t know any serious Twi nerds in person, not like me anyway. I would just embarrass myself in a bad way if I invited the a bunch of girls who have only seen/read some of the Twi books/movies to come down to Applebee’s for some Twi trivia.

            I don’t know why this is reminding me of this, but:
            I went to see Bridesmaids the other night. It was hilarious. But it also made me feel a touch sad/embarrassed for myself, because I kept thinking “Annie” reminds me of me, but not as funny (although good luck being as funny as Kristin Wiig), without the willowy body & hot legs & not as together hair. Not so much in the John Hamm is my jerky Fbuddy and I ended up falling for an adorable police man, more doing embarrassing things and being poor and bitter. I realized the other day, as I saw it that I was trying to be funny, and said “cunt” loudly in a group of co-workers recently (but not at work). Why would I do that exactly? I’d only had one glass of champagne, so that could not have been any excuse.

          • TeamSeth

            Um… no it’s not Twilight trivia (did I write that?  Reviewing… no, okay phew)  It’s “anything” trivia.  Though one week it was the Simpsons guy Matt Groening. He’s from Portland area, so it was “local trivia” in a way.

            My fiance and I say “cunt” all the time, but we don’t view it as a “bad word”.  So… I can’t help you there.  Maybe you were trying to play the Penis Game, but with only yourself?  Wait that sounded weirded than necessary.  Oh and don’t post game updates if you respond cuz we’re DVRing it to watch once I get home (which won’t be by 5pm) :D

        I had a dream that I was on a date with Harrison Ford. We went to a Lady Gaga concert, did some coke (ew), and then went for a long walk in the rain together. And it wasn’t Hans Solo Harrison Ford. It was his age now Harrison Ford. Not that he’s not still got it, but the whole thing was a bit off.

            It was one of those not a nightmare, but certainly a wasted chance for the sexy. If it had been Hans Solo Ford, preferably in that costume, no coke at the Lady Gaga Concert (not my #1 choice of concert, I’ve seen bits of her live show and she does a lot of snarly motivational type speaking, but I’ll leave it in), and we had made out in the rain, it would have been a much better use of dream time.

          Remember him in Witness? The original Amishward. To. Die. For.

          There’s a consultant who comes in to work with us from time to time and he’s a deadringer for Harrison Ford. He’s also extremely tall, smart, kind and charming, just like I imagine Harrison in RL. This guy’s pushing 65, but looks aaahmazing. I think he’s the oldest guy I’ve ever had, you know, THOUGHTS about.

          I’ve never admitted these thoughts to anyone… but I know it’s all kinds of normal here.

    Don’t feel down, UC! Last June, it was so fun to read about the excitement leading up to your meeting with Stephenie and then reading the recaps after. Even I feel the letdown a teeny bit this June after all of those good times on here last year.
    I don’t know why she didn’t ask to have annual meetings with you, however. Even though the last 10 months or so have been fairly slow, I am sure there are hours’ worth of things you (and LTTers) would have to discuss with her. Like what it was like to travel to Isle Esme with Robsten? (which bikini was the best? what apps did Rob have on his iPad? was a bearskin rug included in the set of the house for their afternoon liaison? Bella’s and Edward’s on-screen liaison, of course…) and it’s ideally if we can remind her at least yearly about how much we do NOT want Midnight Sun, a sequel, prequel, etc. (<<to those late in the game: search "reverse psychology"). So much to cover.

    And yes, about the crazy fans. As much as they irritate us to no end – they force us into our Twi-fan shells so we refuse to admit in front of friends and family that we like the same book that the 50 year old lady with 20 Bella and Edward quotes and tulip tattoos and pants covered in the likeness of Rob – they also amuse us to no end. Where have all the crazies gone? It's a love-hate relationship. But I miss them. Sort of.

    I miss daliy LTT/LTR postings!! Or at least the triple week postings. I was finally able to balance my LTT and LTR time well and still feel like I knew what was going on over here. I feel the end times upon us with these random posting days :(

    Okay enough with the drama… ;)

    I was missing the total fangirl excitement feeling… and then I saw the teaser for the teaser trailer tonight and there it is again!  Woo-hoo!!  What a week for Moon to be out of the country between this and the dump of Cosmopolis set pics.  I suppose Europe is well and good, but wedding pictures!  Squee!  And now that I’ve totally fangirled I can go to bed.

    What did happen to Wolfgirl? Was she not normal enough to hang around? Sisters can be so ungrateful at times.

    Glad to see earlier report via Lisahoff of Big Daddy news but where is Bald Bodyguard?? I miss him.

        I didn’t even notice he wasn’t here until right now. I was too busy still disliking KStew’s hairdo in it.

          I would love for her to chop it all of like Emma Watson did, just to see the reaction.
