The happiest of birthdays to themoonisdown

Dear themoonisdown,

HAPPIEST OF HAPPY BIRTHDAYS!!!!! Today we’re celebrating YOU & sharing all the things we love. 15 things to be exact. Why 15? Well, 15 was an awkward age no one wants to remember. So you should be grateful you’re not turning 15 today! So without further ado, here are the 15 Things about YOU that I love, plus a bunch of LTT friends love too:

1. I love that when I first met Moon (and UC) back at the New Moon premiere time (remember that whole gyno debacle?) she immediately hugged me like she had known me for years and made me feel like we were life long friends! -KrazyKidd (whose excuses to her job for why she needs time off to come to LA for a movie premiere have ranged from a 3-day long gyno appointment to claiming she’s IN a wedding (which of course meant she was attending Bella & Edward’s wedding))

2. She reps her love for Jacksper.  Our first LTT connection was over a swoon-tastic picture of Jackson Rathbone (in the wake of Twilight, pre-100 Monkeys and not showering).  Then she put the epic picture of Jackson on a bicycle up on the forum.  We had many a happy chat over that hot midget.  We shipped some Jashley (another bicycle that I’m SURE Jackson rode) for a while.  And then, the first time I met Moon in person, she was lounging by a pool in LA wearing a Jackson Rathbone Twi t-shirt on loan from our fellow Jackson lover, TxLiLi.

Jackson has changed over the years, and so have we, but trust me, Moon only gets better and better.  Freya

3. I love Moon because 3 years ago she sent me a picture of Rob that has been displayed by my computer ever since. He’s strumming his imaginary guitar & she made a bubble with “You shook me all night long” on it. I cherish it. -lula34

4. Everyone once in a while “Let Me Sign” comes on the ipod…and I immediately stop what I’m doing and picture Moon and I. Our boom box, the random dog on the street corner, us in wedding dresses and doc martens….running into traffic. That is probably one of my favorite inside jokes ever, and one I won’t ever forget. She even made me a jpg of our little carefully thought out scenario on the blog for my birthday that year, which I’m sure everyone thought was creepy and weird. No worries, we aren’t suicidal, just realistic that it was more likely we would die in traffic than actually get swept off our feet by Edward Cullen… :)

One of my other favorite Moonie memories over the years was rewriting songs with her. There was always lots of flannel mentioned, and those chats were so long, into the night, and with our 2 hour time difference, I would say “oh its 4am…I should probably sleep. My poor kids ate cereal on those mornings. We even attempted to record us singing on of the songs…on the phone…or something. It didn’t work. At all.

Can’t believe LTT and LTR became what they did, and I cherish the friendships I’ve made. Happy Birthday Moon! I’ll meet ya in traffic! -Kristin

5. Happy Birthday Moon!!! Thank you for the years of laughing inappropriately at work! Thanks for bringing the Twilight snark with style. Even now, 3 years later, when my wee one watches cartoons, and this comes on:

I ALWAYS fight the urge to exclaim, THEY’RE NOT BEARS!” Who am I kidding, I give in to the urge. You are responsible for that. Happy Birthday Lady!! -snowwhitedrifted

6. I love how many pictures of Action Figure we took together during a 3 day period back in 2009 -unintededchoice

7. I LOVE that although she vowed NEVER to camp out for anything twi related she was such a trooper last year and actually camped out for one night for the Breaking Dawn panel. -KrazyKidd

8. I love Moon for her AMAZING fashion sense. -Carter

9. I love that I can count on Moon to break down and explain every soundtrack for Twi. I would also like her to do this for every other soundtrack that sounds good. I need music explained to me. I am music stupid. Also I will always and forever love her for the picture that almost broke twitter of Robsten getting into the cab. Amazing Ninja picster. -Janetrigs

 

10. I love that she does photoshoots with me in the woods that look like Forks where it’s completely normal to have “Edward” photoshopped into the tree afterward -unintendedchoice

11. well, I  remember /the/ night not so long ago (august 2009?) that I met her at The Hotel Cafe to see Marcus, Sam or Bobby perform, not sure I don’t remember… but, the night I met Moon in real life (Ashfrag was also with her) was also the night that HHH Rob showed up with, wait as I type this it’s all coming back to me… Bobby was performing, it was the weekend of the teen choice awards, Rob showed up with Kristen and Moon got the photo of them!  Marcus was also there and they stood just feet from us!  What a way to meet and make such a wonderful friend. Then radar online started a fight about not seeing Rob and Nikki was “whatchu talking bout willis” I got interviewed as a “onlooker and source” by peoplemagazine online and yeah, best, most epic weekend ever, all because I met Moon! -emmyloowhoo

12. I love Moon because she lets me come over to the big blue house, drink her diet coke, watch her tv, she fills me in on the twi-gossip (aka the crazies on the internets) and oh, we also talk about our lives. she’s pretty awesome. -hisoneandonly

13. Happy Birthday Moon!! To the one girl who would understand the sentiment of a Ralph’s sheet cake with the word “Ole” on top which was hand crafted & decorated on the hood of a truck!! Big hugs on your BIG day!! xxoo -Obird

14. I love that Moon is always game. I mean, SHE WAS ON A TWILIGHT BLOG PANEL at TWICON. How can you not love that she’ll totally embarrass herself for our enjoyment?

Men also fall at her feet. I totally ship her and a certain guy who loves starbucks… TOTES. -Brookelockart

15. I love that this was our combined Twilight collection in 2009 & it’s probably 3 times as big now. And how incredibly normal this makes me feel:

In fact, that’s what I love most about you, Moon— you make me feel normal about all these things that have been so-very-far-from-normal for all these years!!

Happy Birthday dear friend. I’m not sure anything can top the last few years we had together. But I’m happy to try! XOXO forever and ever and ever

Love,
UnintendedChoice & friends

THANKS TO EVERYONE WHO SENT ME LOVE FOR MOON’S BIRTHDAY!

Now it’s YOUR turn– share something that YOU love about Moon!

And I promised a winner from the comments last week. This is what made me LAUGH OUT LOUD the hardest:

Congrats Kindred Spirit! E-mail us @ letterstotwilight@gmail.com with your address & we’ll get you your prize!

The worst part about the end of the Holidays (and a Monday Funny)

Been away for the holiday and LTT for a few weeks? Remember there are auto-playing ads that you can STOP from annoying you by hitting mute/the volume button once, after which you’ll never hear them again

Dear Twilight,

Mr. Choice is a better Twilight blogger than me (click this)

Do you know what the worst part about the end of the holidays is? No longer having an excuse to not be productive. (Coming in at a close second is: Sobering Up after 3 weeks of being constantly tispy; The cookies are all stale; Accepting the fact that eating 8 cookies at day for 3 weeks made you fat; Having to stand in long lines to return the horrific gifts you were given; The month old Christmas Tree causes bleeding when you attempt to drag it down 4 sets of stairs to the trash; Having to clean & reorganize your closet now that you have extra things to put in them; You feel really guilty about throwing out your friends & families cute (and over priced) cards/pictures of their kids)

And boy did I EVER enjoy that excuse this holiday! Don’t get me wrong, I was SUPER productive- I have to be with a job that depends on me [gotta sell those hot tubs y’all!] plus a part time job that has quickly taken up more and more of my time & attention. But if something didn’t have to get done this past month, like I’d still get paid (or not paid) if it didn’t happen, or no one would die or get sick or be sad or kill me, then I didn’t do it. I embraced the “It’s the Holidays” excuse BIG TIME and just STOPPED doing things that needed to get done.

Yes, Twilight, that includes you. I don’t even remember tweeting “Merry Christmas” “Happy Hanukkah” or “Happy New Years” this year. Even Mr. CHOICE tweeted you all a Happy New Years message! And I’d like to tell you that today, on January 1, 2012, as I’m writing this, things are going to be different. I’m starting 2012 off RIGHT and with a BANG with some new/amazing/awesome/EPIC* news or blog post, but I’m not. I barely even have an excuse because despite finishing off a bottle of wine plus 1/2 bottle of champagne last night, I feel fine today. I was even up for brunch at 9am. And while I technically could say “It’s the Holidays” because it is January 1st, and all, and I don’t have off tomorrow like the rest of the world, the reality is I’m just being lazy & want to get in my PJs early & watch a movie/TV/peruse blogs that didn’t use the “holiday” excuse/pin things on pinterest/eat more cookies/play with my cats/fall asleep <—- any of those excuses work.

I will leave you, however, with a small Monday Funny that was sent to us by LTT reader, Lindsay, who came across this news item that included a picture of a girl who can only be Kristen Stewart’s inbred cousin:

kristen Stewart inbred cousin

Although attacking a man with a bowl of spaghetti totally sounds like something that could have happened between Kristen & Rob or any one of the Britpack guys, really, during a drunken New Years Eve.

Happy New Year. I promise to be a good blogger soon (as soon as I don’t think of another excuse)

xo,
UnintendedChoice

*crap… I totally promised myself I wasn’t saying EPIC in 2012. Already failed. UGH

A Year in Review and our 2012 Twilight Resolutions

Dear Twilight,

It’s that time of year when we recap the previous year & look back at our resolutions from 2011 & rate HOW we did. Are UC & Moon winning or are those people who want us to fail succeeding in their quest to bring down LTT & all who go with it? First started in 2008 with: Resolutions we promise to keep longer than a week, then followed up with our Resolutions for 2010 and picking up last year with our Year in Review and 2011 Resolutions, let’s recap our resolutions for this past year and take a look at what 2012 might have to bring!

We WON the resolution for most random Twi picture EVER!

1. Breaking Dawn Part 1 (and 2) RED CARPET! – We’re starting our recap off with a big HECK YES WE DID THAT! Who could forget that chilly LA evening when Moon did LTT proud & got hit on by actors whose names we forget while doing everything she could to get Rob’s attention. We were so proud of our girl, and as I stood shivering in my section of the carpet getting pictures with Billy Black and NOT Jackson (intentionally- did I tell you that story? No?) I thought of how PROUD I was that we could yell a big HALE YES to this resolution (no seriously– as I was standing there in the presence of Rob, Stephenie & that guy from Revenge, I thought about this blog post. That’s Normal) Verdit= WIN

UC/Moon- 1 People who want us to fail- 0

2. Meet Big Daddy – Sadly, this was the 2nd year where we failed at this resolution. Does the universe really not want us to meet the greatest Big Daddy in all the land? Verdit= FAIL!
UC/Moon- 1 People who want us to fail- 1

3. Make another appearance at this year’s Comic Con in San Diego. Not only did LTT have represntation at 2011 Comic Con but Moon CAMPED OUT OVERNIGHT. Oh yes, she broke her own personal code of “I will never ever camp out for any thing unless it’s Justin Timberlake related” for US. And has been filled with 2nd hand embarrassment over the fandom since. Verdit= WIN
UC/Moon- 2 People who want us to fail- 1

4. Since UC got to meet and interview Jackson Rathbone and be bequeathed the most unfortunate name of: Superfan, Moon too must undergo the embarrassment of being called Twilight Superfan in 2011 by interviewing Kellan Lutz or another 2nd tier cast member. Well, it wasn’t Kellan Lutz or Jackson Rathbone, but does NOT talking to Mike Welch while trying to get Rob’s attention count?? I think so!

Verdit=WIN!
UC/Moon- 3 People who want us to fail- 1

5. Host another LTT blow out shin dig during the premiere week of Breaking Dawn Part 1! Preferably with karaoke because “Back to December” will NEVER sound as good as it would at an LTT party after drinking Cougarita’s or Mr. Choice’s special concoction called “Bella’s Blood.” Oh host a shindig we did!!! While this year’s party wasn’t as big as last year’s party, we did have better door prizes. I mean a Twilight flat iron? And stuff from the LTT store? HECK YES! And Mr. Choice made his Bella’s Blood again.. and of course to make his “I’m the best bartender in the world” big head even bigger, it was the first drink we ran out of! Verdit= WIN!
UC/Moon- 4 People who want us to fail- 1

6. Infiltrate the set of Breaking Dawn for some sort of exclusive access. The people who wanted us to fail won out on this one! We had absolutely NOTHING that resembled a Breaking Dawn set visit. Verdit= FAIL!
UC/Moon- 4 People who want us to fail- 2

7. Go to Venice Beach, break into Cathi’s groovy beach pad and steal THE AUDITION TAPE so that we can finally put to rest her claims of their amazing chemistry for what it really is: 2 awkward young adults making out on an old ladies bed while she tapes it. Hahaha this resolution STILL makes me laugh & while I wish more than ANYTHING we could tell you we have an end of the year surprise- a screening of THE AUDITION tape starting at 12 am on New Years Day, sadly, we stayed far, far away from Venice Beach and all forms of TGIFridays. Or wait…. did I ever tell you about the time that our Belgian LTT friends Alice & Bella from the long gone (SAD) site Not an Addikt visited New York City & I met them for the day? And we ended our time with drinks at the, gulp, TGIFridays in TIME SQUARE??? I’m so ashamed for us and all the Asian tourists that were also there. And the sad bartender from Jersey. Verdict= FAIL!
UC/Moon- 4 People who want us to fail- 3

Oh would you look at that score card? 4 to 3? Looks like we WON 2011!!!!

After the jump, catch our resolutions for 2012!!
Continue…
