While Moon & I were together in LA, we were asked by the girls at Twilight Series Theories to join them & a few other fansites in a podcast sponsored by Yahoo! There were panels discussing favorite moments of the series, what we’re looking forward to in Breaking Dawn and Twilight Trivia brought to you by Moon & UC.
Wondering if one of us held an apple (YOU know the way) for the contestant to grab when they knew the right answer? Yep. Of course we did that.
Oh and Boo Boo Stewart was there. We made Mr. Choice tweet while we were trivia-ing it up, and I think he thought it was Justin Bieber.
(No I can’t tell you when we come in because I’m too 1st-hand embarrassed to listen to ourselves! We are RIGHT in the beginning & then close to the end)
As of press time (aka 5:52 pm on Sunday evening while in my pink robe & before heading out the door to see PAUL MCCARTNEY (yes, a Beatle! WEE) I haven’t even spoken to Moon yet except through a few text messages. She’s home. She’s safe. She’s exhausted. I’m sure she is going through a transition of going from a 3rd world country back to LA…. where the world’s couldn’t be any different. So while we can’t wait to hear from her and ALL about her trip…. I thought we’d give her a day or so to debrief. And talk about how much we missed her and how much she missed!!!
While you were gone… Rob fell for me, Kellan repented & joined the priesthood, Big Daddy ate an entire Olive Garden (yes, even the bar stools) and Mr. Choice literally joined Team Jacob. He and Taylor Lautner ran off together which makes it easy to be with Rob now….
Okay not really- that’s my dream “While Moon was gone” (minus my husband and Taylor opening up an Alpaca farm together) But a LOT of stuff happened. In fact, we thought of you ALL THE FREAKIN’ TIME. And so I asked the readers we know and love so well to send in stuff that made them think of you- Twi related… or not. And did they EVER! We got so many submissions that I can’t even post them all. And I was SO good at keeping track of them all (as you’ll see by my daily break-down of stuff that happened) and then I went on vacation and missed a few days- whoops. But you get the point. We missed you SO much.. and are SO glad you’re home. I can’t wait to catch up- hear all about Africa, tell you ALL the drama that went down while you were gone (oh there was drama!) and celebrate your return!
While Moon was Gone…… this stuff happened….
Day 1 7/30/10 @Twilight tweeted about US!
The world ended (and clearly they don’t know about the not-so-friendly “Dear Summit” letters we’ve written:
Check it out! RT @TSTPodcast: New blog post: Fan Junket Friday With TwiFans & Letters To Twilight http://bit.ly/dt2Vod
@Janetrigs kept on hatin’ on
to tell you this from her new work email:
Please tell Moon, I hate her. That is my message.
Greeting Cards to get me through..
An LTT friend sent me this card to get me through the time you are gone:
Day 2 7/31/10
While you were gone you missed the most 2nd hand embarrassing moment evah…..
A fan video taping Kellan at LaGuardia airport in NY, who told him to tell her he loved her to her video camera, fell on her ass and he had to pick her up and give her a hug for her 2nd hand embarrassment (which the 2nd hand embarrasment happened twice so she should win an award. 1) she had him tell her he loved her and 2) she biffed it big time). I’m 110% sure after he got in his driver’s car he may have peed his pants a little laughing because that’s what I did (well I didn’t pee, but I almost did) when a lady ran into me in an elevator full force on my college campus and fell on her ass after she bounced off of me and the minute I got outside I almost peed my pants until I got to my car b/c I was laughing so hard.
Hope you are having a safe time!
A person who laughs hard at people who fall down b/c she can’t help it,
Among all the blog lines
Sifting through I hide.
Lurking and knowing,
Relating to all described.
Laughing and blushing at all this good fun
While knowing that knowing is unfit.
That’s normal, don’t fear.
Come join in our play land.
Where vampires sparkle.
They glint and they glisten.
An unintended choice
To evolve into a beast.
Starving and hungry
For the next witty feast.
Not a love sick wolf
In some lust driven strife.
But a tormented average girl
Consumed by the lines.
Kiss, Kiss to Edward,
Kiss, Kiss Taycob, baby.
Charlie and Jasper,
Carlisle and Nessie.
You’re real in my head
and you rest near my pillow.
I delight in your story,
Clutch me tight and hold me closer.
I need you to fill empty spots of my days,
Never quite clear why your draw never fades.
Pages and pages
Week after week.
With the turn of the moon,
I grow and
Still I break.
Through a screen name I write.
Deep in the mess
of the twilight plight.
You make me happy and sad
and all things considered
I rather do this
Than be on facebook
So thank you
to all you who make my day
so very nice.
And thank you,
Oh, thank you for all these delights.
Love Spelled Backwards
FIGURED IT OUT!
While Moon was Gone… I heard a song on Pandora called “The Moon is Down” by Explosions in the Sky and finally figured out her sign-off…maybe?!
Dear people who don’t live in a Twilight bubble (aka normal people, most people in the universe & people I should spend more time with),
Sometimes when I see/hear/think of things in the Twilight world that you are also seeing/hearing/experiencing without being in the Twilight bubble yourself, I get really 2nd-hand embarrassed. Like, it’s one thing for ME to go to see a band play who’s lead singer is the baby mama of the 2nd-cousin of the father of the dude who plays Jacob’s sister Rebecca’s husband and see a crazed fan with a Twilight-themed tattoo and her fake lesbian life partner holding all 4 books plus a print-out of Midnight Sun for the the lead singer to sign, but for “normal” people to see that? Or even KNOW it exists? I apologize on behalf of the fandom.
I recently came across this website that has a ‘guide’ for all things Twilight called, “The Internet has spoken: Twilight is lame.” I read what they posted; I laughed along with them, and then I covered my face in 2nd-hand embarrassment because THEY think WE ALL are crazy for liking Twilight and are ALL crazy fans. And now I’m sure ALL FOUR of their readers probably agree with them. So I’m gonna do what any respectable 2nd-hand embarrassed person would do- share the embarrassment with all of MY readers so that we can, once again, thank the Twilight god (Buttcrack Santa, of course, turned into a god after his ascension into heaven) that we can proudly exclaim about all our Twilight actions: “That’s Normal.” (All our actions except attending that 100Monkey’s show. That was not normal! )
