Eight things to do while we wait for Breaking Dawn to be out in theaters

Why did I not think of this?

Dear Breaking Dawn,

Last week to celebrate the 71 lone days left before Breaking Dawn is released, the Village Voice (yes, the Village Voice) wrote a piece called “71 Things to do While you Wait for Breaking Dawn to finally be out in Theaters”

That’s right. They had 71 ideas. I read about 10 of them before I got bored (no offense, it’s just that… well, 71 is a lot of ideas.) But I particularly loved the image the included (left) and #53:

53. Consider how the title of Breaking Dawn includes all of the letters for “Edward.” Get chills.


But I thought it was a good idea. So now there are 66 days until Breaking Dawn Appears, and that is basically TEN weeks until it’s Breaking Dawn week. So here are my 8 ideas of what you can do while you wait for Breaking Dawn to FINALLY be out in theaters, because coming up with 10 was too hard:

Hellooo Joe Anderson, aka Alistair (who...?)

1. Re-watch Twilight and be reminded that no one will ever be as loved as much as Buttcrack Santa

2. Learn who the heck the new vampires are and which are the cutest so you’re prepared for the crush you’ll inevitably develop on one of them (wait…. are we going to see new vamps in Part 1?)

3. Listen to the Twilight soundtrack while at work and TRY NOT to get all gooey inside during Iron & Wine’s “Flightless Bird, American Mouth” (aka the “Prom song.”) And I DARE YOU not to sing along to Paramore’s “Decode” or think about Rob making fun of how Hayley sings “Here”

4. Re-read your favorite fan fic version of Isle Esme & remind yourself that the movie won’t be like that because we don’t WANT Breaking Dawn Porn (Here is one Isle Esme fic I found after searching through the 334 messages that include the phrase “Isle Esme” in my gmail inbox (seriously))

One of the many things Action Figure Edwad has done over the years with Moon & Myself (um THAT sentence could be taken the wrong way...)

5. Start throwing LTT jokes into every day conversation with random people to see if anyone “gets” it. “Look at that guy’s jorts. He could be a member of the wolfpack,” or “Hold me back, Chris Hansen” when you see a cute, younger guy (but, uh, not young enough that Chris Hansen should actually hold you back.)

6. Plan your voyage to “Mecca” (aka LA around November 18-22. You ARE coming right? I’ll be there with Moon! Get excited for something fun for LTT readers. Hopefully it involves Paramore Karoke)

7. Dust off Action-Figure Edward and have an adventure with him. Did you get a new job in the last 2 years? I’m pretty sure Edward needs to visit your office & be “accidentally” left in the kitchen so you can see how long it is until someone comments about him.

8. Re-watch some of our famous LTT videos & be reminded about how much fun we’ve had over the years:

and my personal favorite:

Is it November yet!?


10 weeks!!! Can you believe it? What else can we do to fill our time & prepare our hearts & minds for November’s craziness!

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

Edward Cullen sightings in Missouri

Dear Twilight,

Earlier in the year we heard from Jessica about a phenomenon occurring in Blue Springs, Missouri:

While shopping at my local grocery store this weekend I noticed a display of my newest sweet tooth craving…. Twizzlers. As I walked around the rather large display to the front of it, I noticed something, NAY, some one shares the same affinity as myself for the awesome red candy!

It is important to add that this is a full size cutout standing in the middle of all these boxes, and somehow I doubt that Twizzlers would be the product of choice were he to have a say in the matter…

It’s not the only appearance he has made. The other week he was selling Sun Drop soda! I sign next to him says “A drop of sun will make you sparkle like me.”

We want to sell you Kale

And a few weeks later Jessica wrote again:

Our Edward has made another appearance. This time he isn’t selling anything, just looking down from the 2nd floor balcony with a Justin Beiber cutout next to him. It’s funny because birds like to find their way into the store and their new favorite perch is Edward’s head…. My dad said to the cashier the other day “There’s a little pecker on Edward’s head.” Kudos to dad for knowing who he is… Epic fail for the cashier who didn’t even crack a smile.

But then sadly:

Bad news… Edward was shat upon and has therefore been sequestered into an interior chamber at the store for cleaning. I know cardboard is not submersible but I could possibly come up with some sort of moisture barrier… I will keep you updated on any sightings henceforth as now that he is sparkling (hehe) clean, they will for sure want to show him off somehow. I have an idea, he could sell us dog treats! I must phone the grocery store at once!

The sighting in Blue springs got me thinking about all the places I’ve seen Edward: Hot Topic & FYE music store in the mall (Did I ever tell you about the time that the mall cops yelled at me for taking a picture of the cutout in Hot Topic (This was before I knew what “normal” was!) and made me delete it from my phone? (I tweeted it quickly first. I rule) And Edward is, of course, in the background of all the pictures you all send us of your bedrooms (don’t TRY To tell me that you’re teenage daughters room!) But I don’t see Edward in NEAR enough places! I live in a MAJOR CITY. Edward should be all over the place. Like the Rocky Statue:

(True story: I’ve never seen it. I don’t care) Or on top of city hall, hanging with William Penn:

And a TON more people would visit the Liberty Bell if Edward was nearby:

And I’d SERIOUSLY reconsider my 10 year foray as a vegetarian & partake in a Philly cheesesteak if Edward was selling them!


Has Edward been anywhere interesting in YOUR town? Think the marketing gal (obviously!) at the grocery store in Blue Springs, MO is an LTT reader? Where have you spotted one of the Twi-charcters cut outs!?

After the jump, an important announcement! Continue…

The things we do for Twilight

Dear Twilight,

You’ve made me crazy. Yep. Crazy. There I was- a perfectly normal 25 year old girl with a slight love of subway sandwiches, Harry Potter, Facebook, kittens (okay I’m obsessed with kittens) and music. Suddenly, after being quite bored on a family vacation, I’m obsessed with vampires. VAMPIRES! And then after seeing a movie with a few friends in November (a movie that wasn’t actually that good, by the way) I’m suddenly obsessed with a BOY (who, coincidentally was IN Harry Potter.. so WIN for me!) I’m married! I love my husband! A lot! And this BOY is younger than the geeky cousin- EW!

I’ve done the craziest things for you:

-I took a 5 hour flight to visit a friend and then stood outside a HOT TOPIC to meet Ashley Greene and buy a DVD that I just ended up selling on ebay. Let me repeat. I went to Hot Topic (multiple times actually) And stood in a line. Until 5am (eastern time.) I forgot to mention above, I’m obsessed with sleep

-I went to a 100Monkey’s concert. And I’m a music snob. And they’re not good

-I talk DAILY to friends I made on the internet. How do I know you aren’t 54-year old men who play with themselves while looking at pics I text you, EastFriend & WestFriend? (uh, note to self, stop sending EastFriend & WestFriend half dressed phone pics of myself.. just in case)


I got picked up by Vickyb at the San Diego train station & we met Mrs.P for lunch downtown. I just trusted that Vickyb wasn’t gonna kill me.  And how did I know that Mrs.P’s teeny daughter wasn’t a cute ploy to get me to let down my guard so they could rob me of my millions?

If you're wondering if Mini Edward greeted me in San Diego, he did...

Please say hi to my gangsta booty

-I went BY MYSELF to Philly to a Jewish-Southern fusion brunch place and met AmourPSU. First of all, what the freak is Jewish-Southern fusion? Do you think AmourPSU made it up and staged a brunch place so she could drug me, insert something into my brain and steal all my creative ideas?

-The other night I was at a loud, crowded bar with some friends. I could barely hear my friend Ray say, “That’s what she said” after everything my husband said (he says it so often I’ve changed it to: “That’s what Ray says”). But don’t worry, I heard the girl at the next table explain to her date how she likes the series “Twilight,” and I swung my head around so hard my neck muscles STILL hurt.  No one else noticed. And I wasn’t even the closest person to her.

twilightpartyOne day I was just minding my own business driving home when, going 45 m.p.h. I pass a road sign that I SWEAR says “Twilight Party 5/30.” I SWERVE into the parking lot and drive to the other entrance to see if my eyes deceived me or not. They did not. The mudshack pottery studio is having a Twilight Party on Saturday. What are they gonna do? Make clay figurines of Edward? How gay. Oh, and you know I’ll be there…

What happened? How did I, a perfectly sane girl who occasionally did crazy things like dress up like Moaning Myrtle for the Harry Potter opening movie night become the: meets internet friends in person without a second thought, stays up till 5am at a HOT TOPIC to meet a girl from a movie that wasn’t that good, looks awkward in public places, almost gets into accidents, makes a fool out of herself-type girl over a book ABOUT VAMPIRES…… Oh, I also have given up all hobbies, all real life friends and spend Friday nights at home…. all to run 2 blogs….

FML? or…no.. I love my life…

You’re worth it. Friends, vampires, Rob, the Internets, Twilight…. I <3 you enough to go crazy for you

*omg… I’m KNOWN by a fake name from a MUSE song..! ugh!

I love all my internet friends more than you’ll ever know. And EastFriend/WestFriend if you DO turn out to be old dudes, well, I think you’ll be the best old dude friends I’ll ever have… you can’t get rid of me!

We have some FUN stuff planned for the MTV movie awards so check back this weekend on The Forum our Twitter & the Blogs!

The well-rounded Twilight Fan

Dear Twilight fandom,

This is the story of how to be a well-rounded Twilight fan.  It IS possible that your husbands, significant others, moms, dad, kids, etc. can be “proud” of you, despite your obsessing over “just a book about Vampires” (who has had someone in their life refer to it as that before? I have, I have!) Moon & I, through reading your letters and amazing emails, have discovered the key to maintaining a healthy, balanced life, while never really leaving the Twilight world.

By using the suggestions described by the following stories, we feel you will emerge a better, fuller, more whole, smarter, sexier, well-rounded person. (Or at least well-rounded in the 5 areas we consider to be most important in life: Music, Parties, Film, Fun and Art.)

Enjoy a snippet of each of these important life areas, brought to you by something Twilight related, below:


Raise your hand if you’ve heard music related to the Twilight saga that sucks. ME. So you can imagine my surprise when one of our readers, Brodie-Ann, sent us “Twilight Wishes and Vampires Kisses” in the form of a song from her band Felinedown that not only DOESN’T suck but is ACTUALLY quite good! Here is her explanation of the song:

This song, Push, is based on New Moon from Bella’s perspective. I created it really as a gift for Stephanie – to thank her for Twilight and all our characters she has really inspired me both personally and as a song writer.

Go ahead, listen! And let Brodie-Ann know what you think in the comments!

Remember RhoJo and her amazing friends who created the amazing Twilight Drinking Game for a DVD release party that included instructions like: take a drink every time Bella stumbles, falls or stutters? Well, she sent us pictures of the amazing party she threw for her and her friends.

They all wore uniforms of course

The Edward action figure is kinda a slut…

Dear Edward,

I can hang with the fact that you’re a 108 year old vampire trapped inside the body of a beautiful, sexy, perfect 17-yr-old, but what I don’t get is this miniature version of you that’s EVERY WHERE these days. How do you do it!? I know you run fast… but you’re EVERY WHERE at ONCE!

Not to mention that no one seems to know what to call you. We’ve always just referred to you as the “Edward Cullen Doll” (or my ‘very own crappy Edward‘) but have also heard you called micro-Edward, little Edward or, our favorite, “Pocket Edward” (which of course was the creation of our dear friend, Lauren, from Lauren’s Bite). Regardless of what we call you, you seem kinda slutty. You’re spending a lot of time with a LOT of woman, and I’m getting a little jealous.

Stop it, k?
<3 UnintendedChoice

laurendollJust promise me you didn’t send any of the “other” girls a Valentine like the one you and Lauren made for me (in case you’re wondering if Eddie wrote that he’s depressed because

1) he’s stuck with Bella
2) I am married and
3) he was late with his v-tines greeting, all those things are true.


aCarla saw you at the hospital
miniedward4I was at the hospital this morning visiting my husband when I heard a page for Dr. Cullen to room 744.

I thought this can’t be Dr. Carlisle Cullen, what would he be doing here? I went down the hall and there stood Edward, I was in shock! I asked him what he and Dr. Cullen were doing here in Kansas and he said that they were passing through and stopped by to check up on an old patient of Dr. Cullen’s that was ill.

Edward and I walked around the hospital talking while Dr. Cullen tended to his patient and he didn’t mind if I took pictures. It was a great time and I wanted to share them. By the way, no pictures of my husband and Edward as my husband was asleep at the time, but Dr. Cullen checked on him and said that he was going to be fine. Carla



A day at the (fake) beach


You took AJ & her friends to the beach near the Ohio University campus (AJ says she uses the term beach loosely, and I’m glad because I didn’t THINK there were “beaches” in Ohio!)




Pocket Edward enjoys his first hockey game

Jena said she had a LOT of fun with you at the University of Nebraska at Omaha vs. Notre Dame hockey game, even though UNO lost 3-4.
