Monday Funnies: A Twilight Engagement

Dear Couple who got engaged at a screening of Eclipse,

Thanks for totally stealing my idea. This is always how I imagined it: my boyfriend in shorts and Airwalks, me in a Team Edward shirt and sweatpants. Him dropping to one knee in front of the concessions girls from the local AMC to declare his undying ETERNAL love for me. Then reciting something like this…

Moon (yes, he would call me by my blogging name, of course). My life was like a starless night until I met you (and he would quote Twilight of course) would you be the Bella to my Edward and forgo all Jacobs.

And then he would pull out a replica Bella’s engagement ring. I would feast my eyes on it’s epicness and of course say yes. Then after some “fade to black” he would turn me into a vampire cause that was part of the deal. Oh wait, I didn’t tell you he was a vampire? Obviously!

Or maybe it would just happen like this…

And then when she saw the replica Bella’s engagement ring inside that box she threw that shiz back at him and said ‘I may be a fan but my finger better be covered in Tiffany, not Hot Topic if you’re going to propose to me at a Twilight movie.’ DUH!

You KNOW this dude felt like a tool once he saw how Edward proposed to Bella and this chick suddenly rethought the whole thing. I mean, how can you even compete with a vampire like Edward Cullen? He has the hair, the Alice approved outfits, the gold brocade bedding, a wrought iron bed of awesomeness, and lines like “stolen kisses after I ask your father for your hand in marriage.” For realz dude, I’m sorry you even tried to compete with the likes of Edward Cullen on a 50 foot screen. But obviously you get points for even doing this and a big mazel to you and your lady. But next time bring your A game and rent an Edward Cullen costume if you want to get legit about his.

Mazel Tov kids!

What would you do if your boyfriend proposed to you before a Twilight movie? Whats the best and worst proposal idea? What did you think of Edward’s proposal in Eclipse?

Moon & UC’s Excellent Adventure Vol. 2: The Stephenie Meyer Interview

Dear LTTers,

UC POV

4:00 am, somewhere in Pennsylvania, an alarm clock is set to go off.
Silence
4:15 am, somewhere in PA, a back-up alarm clock is set to go off
Silence
4:30 am, somewhere, a “you’re an idiot if you’re not up by now, but I’ll set this just in case’ alarm clock is set to go off
Silence

Never drive faster that your guardian Larry can fly

6:30 am, Mr. Choice awakes to find me still in our bed, panic tears & wailing ensue. I rush, with teeth brushed (not hair) & no make-u applied, to the airport 1 hour away to try to catch a flight that leaves in ½ hour. After being told there are no more LA flights with room, oh wait, we found 1 seat in first class for $1500, oh no- sorry that flight won’t get you in until 7 pm, oh wait, just kidding we found one seat on the next flight to LA, I arrive in LA only 2 hours later than I was supposed to. Crisis Averted! I attribute it to one thing and one thing only- Larry411. The Twitter “celebrity” was on my flight and I feel as thought the universe knew that having me & Larry, two of the most important Twilight people EVER, on the plane was a necessity. (Yeah, it’s going to be awkward next time I run into him in Philly after I tweet him today showing him this picture I took while sitting 2 seats down from him, trying to work up the nerve to say “Hi, I’m UC, I like Twilight” but deciding against it b/c snot was pouring out of my nose due to previous crying spell.)

Moon POV

Being woken up at 5am by about 20 text messages is never a good thing. Unless the person sending them is Robert Pattinson looking for a booty call. This was not the case Thursday morning.

Since UC’s 2390429034 alarms failed and she missed her flight, I spent those extra hours running around doing errands, finding a blasted voice recorder so we could immortalize the interview forever and ever and make Stephenie Meyer saying “2nd hand embarrassed” (oh yes, she did!) our outgoing voice mail message.

After fetching UC from LAX we busted a groove over to Westwood so we could meet up with Twifans and Twilight Series Theories for lunch, which was deeeeeeeeeeeeelicious. And of course we debated what we thought would happen during the interview which was pretty much us saying we weren’t about to stay on topic (ie Bree and Eclipse).

*thinking* holy crap holy crap holy crap what are we gonna ask?!

So the countdown to SM time had begun and we hadn’t pow wow-ed about our potential questions for the NEXT day. So of course we ran down to the pool to get our sun on, which was conveniently behind a building thus making us shiver, and run through questions and potential scenarios. While we pondered what our first question would be: Jorts vs Tweed or Big Daddy vs Dick Pattz, some of the other sites came up to talk about how they thought it would go down and some of their potential questions. And well, you know us, we’re not exactly rules followers or the kind of people who want to know, in detail, what happened in Edward’s mind on page 78 so we got a bit spooked. Ok, we freaked!

It's everywhere!! We can't escape!

UC: You guys really put on the pressure! We knew that if we went in there asking when Fred’s birthday was (May 17, 1984, btw) you’d kill us. And rightfully so. We started having these joint, day-time nightmares of us asking a funny question and Stephenie saying, “I refuse to answer unless you somehow turn that really hilarious joke into a question about the intricacies of Bree’s life.” (If you think for one second I actually know what Fred’s birthday is, you’re fired as an LTT reader)

Moon: So we called an emergency dinner of the Los Angeles branch of the LTT family. We needed to be talked down by The Font and White Yorkie. Over sushi of course. Well, we ate sushi and the Font watched the Lakers and White Yorkie bailed on our asses.

UC POV

Since this was my first time meeting the guys, I’ll jump in to report that #1 they are huggers, #2 The Font wore some sort of 7 year old boys’ comic book or teenage-mutant ninja turtle t-shirt and #3 White Yorkie has action figure boxes on his bedroom walls. I assumed they were from Action-Figure Edward, but I didn’t ask.

The guys TOTALLY got us pumped up. They made us laugh, they reminded us that we’re not expected to be like any other site but ourselves & threatened to never do another LTT podcast or even SPEAK to us again if we weren’t absolutely cool. Oh, and they told us we better make Stephenie laugh.

Picture of us suitable for hanging next to your family members (that's what the note said!)

Later that night, after ordering a bottle of water from room service & being served Evian like it was Don Perignon, we wrapped our gifts for Stephenie, Moon finished up 2 mixed CDs she made her (Yes- she rules), and I said “I’m so tired I think I’m going to die” about 3,000 times.

OH NO IT'S TOMORROW!!!!!!!!!!

Moon: And when we got in bed we got Twilosophical & talked about how we just wanted to be true to ourselves and to the blog. If the interview was going to be lame and controlled, we were still going to TRY to ask the questions we wanted and all the LTTers wanted to have answered!

THE BIG DAY (after the jump!) Continue…

Day of Rest – Before we meet the creator of it all: Stephenie… not God

Note to self: Don't bite the Stephenie... unless she likes that sorta thing

Dear LTT-ers,

Instead of our usual post today we will be taking a self imposed day of rest from blogging, which we’ve pretty much never done. We’ve blogged consistently for the past year and a half… ok so maybe what I’m typing right now is considered blogging but let’s not get technical!

ANYWAY! Tomorrow UC and I will be fulfilling our dream (wow, that’s weird to say) and a year old New Year’s Resolution, since we first read the books and started this blog of MEETING STEPHENIE MEYER. I know we’ve talked a lot about it but wouldn’t you? We’re going to finally meet the woman who created all this, the women who conjured up Edward in her dreams one night, the women whom we owe this blog and all the people we’ve met or come to love because of to her.

So for that reason and to get our heads together because UC and I will be reunited like Peaches and Herb we’re taking the day off to contemplate meeting Stephenie and trying furiously to figure out how to hide Depends undergarments under our skinny jeans to prevent any nightmares from happening!

With that in mind what would be your nightmares when meeting Stephenie Meyer?

We’ll start you off…

01. What if the only thing I manage to squeak out to Stephenie on Friday is “Will you sign my copy of “The Host?”” #nightmares

02. Do you and Pancho play “Edward and Bella” at home? #nightmares

Add your nightmares to the comments! We’re also still looking for great (NON MIDNIGHT SUN related) questions to ask Stephenie so feel free to add those as well. We’ll be checking in regularly to approve comments but it may take a little longer!

Trying not to pee my pants!

One Year. It's been a long time coming! Celebrate our year in the Twilight fandom!

Oh hello outtake of Moon & UC in a disney forest!

Dear UnintendedChoice (I used your full fake name cause I’m serious. I’m also wearing a pair of Tweed jorts),

A year ago today (trust me, I counted) we started this “secret blog” which now a year later isn’t such a secret anymore, not to the thousands of visitors we get or the hundreds of commenters who comment on every post and not even to most people in my real life now. In fact more often than not I’m now introduced to people I don’t know with “Hi X, this is Moon* she runs a “famous” Twilight blog!” Uh, well, wham, bam, thank you ma’m. Not such a secret anymore I dare say!

Remember our very first layout EVER?!

People ask me why I don’t talk more about the blogs in my real life and it would be easy to say it’s embarrassing I write a blog every day about Twilight and Rob but truthfully I can’t be embarrassed anymore about a blog that’s become part of the fandom in a real and lasting way. I can’t be embarrassed that people have met their soul mates and friends and long lost bff’s because we write about Twilight. I can’t be embarrassed that things we’ve created: words, phrases, characters, fake names have become part of the lexicon of the Twilight/Rob fandom.  And I definitely can’t be embarrassed that because I write this blog I have found a new lease on life and created a deep and lasting friendship with one of the most wonderful people God ever created. You are a God send UC. Baby Jesus and Rob himself created you just for me in their plaid heaven in the sky.

May the source be with you!

Some people know a little bit of my back story that led up to creating this with you but for those who don’t I worked for an entertainment company for multiple years and worked my way up through the ranks to a position that had all the responsibility of a middle woman and none of the perks of an upper level executive. I regularly contemplated crashing my german made car into the free way underpass on the way to work every morning. Every Sunday night (or really just any day ending in Y) I would wake up with panic attacks that would leave me paralyzed in my bed. I would come home from work and go straight to bed at 7Pm until I had to get up and do it all again the next day. To say all of these things were unhealthy would be an understatement.

And then I found Twilight (cue choir of Angels) or rather it found me.
