Open Post: Love Letter to Jackson Rathbone, her new #1!

(Oh Jackson you’re always getting the love even when we dog you! Lieutenant Twilight writes you a letter today while we’ve Gone Fishin’. Tuck it between your banjo-lin and the trimmings from your catfish facial hair to read when times are tough. xo, moon)

Ladies Love Cool J

Dear Jackson,

I love you!

Whew… Glad I got that out of the way.  You see, most people in the twi-fandom have been cast under some sort of spell by Rob.  I never was.  I never understood the draw, ok well I UNDERSTAND it, I just remain unaffected.  You see, for about 11 years I have always had the same #1 celeb crush.  That’s dedication my friend.  And now, you’ve won me over and… well you’re my #1! I don’t know when it happened and I don’t know how I am supposed to let HIM know.  I mean, he’s been there from my tween years! However, after staring at you and hearing what you’d like to dress up as, I at least know WHY it happened!  You see the previous winner of my top 3 was the Johnny Depp.  I was committed to his sexiness from a very early age and continued on until I was introduced to you.

Ranks higher than Johnny Depp?!

You have similar features and want to dress up like characters he has already played.  You play “music” and have terrible tattoos.  It’s like you’re a younger version of him, only you have something that appeals to me more, and that is your awkward sense of humor and outgoing personality.  Unlike my Mr. Depp, who is shy and reserved.  Therefore, you’ve become my #1 man.  My list now reads #1 Jackson Rathbone, #2 Johnny Depp, and #3 Scarlett Johansson (nope, not a lez, but ScarJo is too pretty for me to deny my crush).  So lately I’ve been trying to scheme my way into meeting you and getting in your pants…  I’ve considered a 100 Monkeys show, but alas there are none in driving distance.  I’ve thought briefly about flying to LA to go to a show, but then my conscience kicked in and said that was too extreme.  But is it? I mean I could meet you and never really fall in love or give special hugs because I have a fantastic husband who actually owns a Stetson and Spurs (cuz he really is in the Cavalry! I know… I’m a lucky girl!!)  So I shall continue to swoon over you from a distance and die a little inside if ever you should develop an actual relationship with someone.   Because you have overcome Johnny Depp on my list and he was a multiple winner of “Sexiest Man Alive” and maintained a #1 position in my heart for 11 years!  I hope beyond hope that you can do the same!

Playing Dress up with my husband,

DUDE a hat AND spurs… forget Jackson let’s see pics of Lt. Twilight’s hubs! So what is it about Jackson? Besides Rob Jacky gets the next highest number of letters in our inbox…higher than Taylor even. Whats up with that? Is it the side talking? The weird band? Is it because I love to call him Jacky?

Today is the day- Moon returns home!! I am SO ready! I only wish I could give her a big hug. We’ll talk to you Monday- ready to jump back INTO it!

Open Post: BrookeLockart gets on the red carpet

For this week’s Open Post, we remember back to when that movie about vampires came out in June. Remember the one? Remember all the stuff that happened during the month of June for LTT & our friends? Well, we didn’t even get to all the stories yet! @Brookelockart got ON the red carpet & she regales her story with glee for us this weekend!

Dear LTTers,

Once upon a time, a bright-eyed, bushy-tailed, girl (me, duh) traveled across the country to the mean streets of L.A., on no sleep to venture to her first movie premiere ever! Not buying the innocent Brooke? Yeah, okay – I was freaking ecstatic about getting into the Eclipse premiere. I mean when @Lolashoes told me she came across tickets and asked me to go, I think that all brain functioning stopped.  I suddenly yelled out a, “SHUT THE FRONT DOOR!” in response to the amazing news. After Lola stopped laughing at my hokey outburst, we decided on our plans: I would meet @tby789 at the airport then go and pick up Lola and @wearingwords on our way to LA.

The Last Minute Twitter Fashion Show where I still hide my face

I stressed over what to wear to LA and gave my twitter following a mini fashion show to help me pick an outfit out. I mean really… what does one wear?

Sweet and innocent: Red Top and Polka dot skirt

All dressed up with somewhere to go! H&M party dress

Simple and breezy: The Loft silver/gray dress for elegance

Party Animal!: NY&CO Animal print

I’m not a lucky biatch like Moon is who has a different premiere to attend every month. These decisions were hard! I mean, what if I did run into Rob in the rest room… I mean lobby of the theatre? MUST look my best!

California Girls!

Fast forward to LA. We quickly (and by quickly, I mean that I changed my outfit 4 times) got ready at a nearby hotel, and we strutted our stuff over to LA Live. While the other ladies went to wait in the will call line, I called over to Moon to find out where she was hiding…

Can you spot Moon? Hint: She’s wearing pink

There was no way I could get to Moon in the stands, so I found my other #leghitch2010 ladies chilling at the ESPN zone where they had a clutch spot to see all the action.

Let me just tell you that I had no idea what to expect and there was no way I could have even imagined the insanity. Fans screaming, offering their first born, yelling for the stars’ attention while the MC of the event spoke like he just rolled in from East Compton. It was around the time that Tia and Tamara Mowry (Yeah, I watched Sister Sister, too!) rolled up when I got the call from Lola to haul ass over to will call because they were being ushered in.

Read the rest after the jump!

F*cking Amazing Luck for Lola and Me

I finally find Lola after power walking around the Nokia Theatre in 4.5 inch heels, where she’s waiting for me and a friend of a friend (let’s call him Bill) who’s coming by to make sure everything was okay with our tickets. Apparently while I was off with my LTT girls, there were issues finding the tickets. Bill finds Lola and me and offers to take us out to the red carpet. I’m sweaty, my hair is frizzing and starting to recurl, but THIS East Coaster was NOT going to miss out on this opportunity. Lola and I look at each other with wide eyes and give a resounding YES! Sadly for our friends, they had already gone in the theatre so we did what any modern ladies do: text them what’s happening and say we wished they were here too! We really did miss you @tby789 and @wearingwords!

Drunk on the Red Carpet

There we are, on the Red Capet – well the area next to the red carpet – and we’re drunk. There were a few drinks to be had while getting ready for the event and maybe a chocolate cake shot with @obird to celebrate #leghitch2010. So imagine how surreal being on a red carpet can feel… now imagine that a bit tipsy. YEAH!

There was no way I was letting this opportunity pass us by… I went into full East Coast mode: AGGRESSIVE. I politely loudly called over several stars, spoke to some and got photos with others… Just one little problem.. my cell and camera were about to die. Please, do not let this EVER happen to you because my cell and camera did eventually conk out, right around the time Kristen hit the red carpet. Sigh.

No fan girling here…

The first celeb that I inner fangirled over was Daniel Cudmore. My exact words to Lola were, “I think that I just want to rub my body against him” He is QUITE hot and manly in person. I was in LUST.

The celebrities flowed; I spoke to Anna and drunkenly told her she owns every scene she’s in. Really meant to say she steals every scene she’s in, but hey… close enough.

Got pictures with Peter (o hai Dr. Cullen), who was basically being groped by his wife as he walked around the red carpet (Jennie looked really pretty though).

Made eye contact with Mr. Copstache himself who sadly was sans stache. No matter, he was still looking fine and we got a fantastic photo with him.

And then I spotted Stephenie. I made it my mission to get her to come over and take a picture. I called her name a gazillion times and then called her assistant’s name, hoping that it was her assistant. After making a fool of myself for a good 10 minutes, Stephenie came over and took a picture with Lola and me (yes, the picture is full of irony)… I turned thanked her and then did what anyone does… I name dropped! Told her I was good friends with UC and we chatted about LTT. Stephenie gave me the tidbit about the Jorts making it into the commentary and babbled on…wondered if she knew I was the one that wrote the letter about Bree and asked her if she wouldn’t mind taking another picture with just me. FYI – I rule at the self-portrait.

(See Stephenie, LTT gives me laugh lines too)

Stephenie started talking to some other fans nearby and someone asked where she got her necklace. When she responded Anthropologie, my drunk ass decided to interject, “You know, Anthro’s headquarters are in Philly… you should come visit me and UC!” GAH, OMG, so embarrassing. Yes, I invited the queen of Twi universe to come chill with UC and me. *facepalm* At that point I just had to let her walk away. You are all welcome to be second-hand embarrassed for me because I’m certainly embarrassed for myself. (BTW Steph, that invite is still open)

We saw more celebs and Olympians. I loudly called them over and got some great pics. I saw Rob and Kristen fly by with their entourages. I loudly called them over too, but I was drowned out from the apparently team Jacob crowd fangirling so loudly that I couldn’t hear myself think. I never realized how many 15 year old girls somehow get onto the red carpet.

I get really really sappy

It was the experience of a lifetime! There are so many little funny stories that happened on the red carpet or in the theatre, but apparently I cannot tell this as a short story (sorry for the long read). Yes, I got to see Rob and Kristen, got pictures with Kellan, Peter and Billy, fell in lust with Daniel Cudmore, but it truly meant the most to me to meet Stephenie. Without her, there’d be no #leghitch2010, no friendship with Lola and no LTT girls. It’s been a rough couple years and that week in LA with my LTT besties was EXACTLY what I needed.

With much love and much embarrassment,


Aww! Don’t be embarrassed Brookie! We’ve all been there & done that drunkenly around Peter, Billy Burke, Anna, Rob, Kristen & Stephenie before! Oh wait….. never mind….

Open Post: Call us Team Switzerland

Here’s what we’ve learned when it comes to Kristen Stewart: You either LOVE her, or HATE her.  But we’ve discovered the secret to blogging about her while avoiding death threats being sent via misspelled tweets. Although, I’m not sure we want to avoid those… Haven’t you noticed by now we love a little drama? It’s too fun when the crazies come out of their lairs. So, anyway, this weekend we’re bringing you a K-Stew lova’ and a hata.’ Just call us TEAM SWITZERLAND!

Confessions of a Stewlaholic

Dear LTT,

I’m finally coming out of the closet and admitting – I am a major Stew-aholic. I have admitted defeat and realised that I am in the minority but I cannot hold it in any longer – Kristen Stewart makes me question my sexuality. During the course of this fan letter I will talk you through the stages of my apparent Stewsession (see what I did there?!)

Stage 1 – The First Meeting

It’s November 20th 2008 and I find myself sat in a slightly crowded cinema screen with my sister. The God that is Sir Robert Pattinson graces the screen and I find myself head over heels in love with this beautiful, beautiful man. Bella blinks and breathes quite a bit. Two hours later and after a lot of swooning, I leave the cinema screen knowing that this is only the beginning, that HHH will be occupying my thoughts, computer screen and walls for a long while to come. Twilight was an intoxicating experience for me, not having read the books, and naturally Edward was more of a focal point for me than Bella was. And then came the books . . .

Stage 2 – Getting to Know One Another

Naturally, about a day later I found myself purchasing all four books, then proceeding to read all four within one weekend. Bella was a nice companion to read with, she had an understandable teenage girls mind that I felt I could relate to myself, since we’re both ridiculously level-headed and mature for our age. And then I read the series again . . . and again, and my books became more and more tattered as I read nothing but them. I soon found myself entranced by the characters, in particular Bella & Edward, so took to the internet to do a spot of light reading . . .

KStewlaidStage 3 – Intense Research & Analysis

So after a few minutes of googling I find myself useful sites such as & , which eventually led me to these two wonders, LTT & LTR. The sites open me up to the enigma that is Kristen Stewart, her everyday life and the criticism that surrounds her. A nice 3 week holiday in San Francisco, L.A & Florida later and I return with ‘In The Land Of Women’ on DVD, that I happened to spot by chance in Target and let my curiosity for what she has to offer outside of Bella Swan get the better of me. I must admit, easy-on-the-eyes Adam Brody plays a lead role in making this movie good, but Kristen has the self-conscious teenager role down to a tee, her acting made me admire her even more. So I did what any loyal fan would do and I imdb’d that shit, and as soon as that was done I headed down to my local HMV (yes, that was the music store RobStu were pictured in in London) and bought myself a copy of Panic Room & Into The Wild. (Just to clear up, I did not find her in the slightest bit attractive in Panic Room, I don’t want Chris Hanson on my case . . .)

Stage 4 – Realization

Go Ahead... Click that

So it was around the beginning of October 2009 (almost a whole year after first laying eyes on KStew) that I realised that I have a big, fat lesbian crush on her (so so tempted to quote Mean Girls then..) and nobody can help me now. I’m not in the slightest bit ashamed to admit that the folder entitled “Kristen Stewart” holds more than 80 more pictures than the one called “Robert Pattinson”, (bring on the “wtf’s?!”!).

In conclusion:

Now my daily internet time is mainly spent reading about whatever news my 3 main sites have to offer me on Kristen Stewart.
Being the make-up junkie that I am, I select a picture at random of her everyday and try to replicate her eye make-up since it is always seemingly flawless. I spent a sick day in bed perusing the internet and managed to watch her on Jay Leno three times because I found her so adorable. I’ve based my Art GCSE final piece on her public image and the criticism she receives from the media for her acting. I wrote an essay about her in my English class. And after writing this letter I really do think I have the potential to be a lesbian… Plus she has the most enviable pair of legs I think I have ever laid eyes on.

(Apologies for the over usage of brackets and ellipsis in this letter! They’re like my own personal brand of “irrevocably” and “smooth contours of Edwards chest”).

Lovin’ me some Stewie 2k10,

Team No-Stew after the jump! Continue…

Open Weekend Post: Um, Duh Summit

Dear Summit,

I’d like to draw our reader’s attention to today’s “What the F*ck Moment” courtesy of YOU (yet again)

Seriously? First of all everyone claims they sell “Bella’s Jacket” including my very favorite (which sold out QUICKLY back in 2006- or maybe it was 2009- whatever. FOREVER ago)  MAYBE this is the ‘real’ Bella’s jacket & maybe they shouldn’t be claiming connection to Twilight without permission, but dude. Seriously? Do you guys not have anything better to do other than sue people? You sued a fan (Delaneyg84 on Twitter for those of you in the dark (aka lucky) who loves Robsten & leaked Eclipse stills before anyone else did), you sued someone who took a video camera into a theater & got a shitty capture of PART of New Moon for her digital scrapbook. What’s next?

I figured I’d take the liberty of helping you out with some ideas of who to sue:

  • Olive Garden- for making such delicious breadsticks that Big Daddy, and therefore Taylor, can’t resist. Free advertising for them due to your Golden Boy!
  • All restaurants in New Orleans for using Fish Fry. Harry did NOT okay that
  • The estate of Kurt Kobain for all the flannel he wore in the 90s
  • Bears. Everywhere. Cause they should be wolves. Bella said.
  • Hipsters with mustaches- they didn’t get Charlie’s permission.
  • People holding apples in supermarkets. They don’t have the license to do that- the hand model is the only one allowed.
  • Vampire Diaries- do I have to explain? Vampires? Love story? Love triangle? Twilight did it forty millionth first
  • Spider-monkeys
  • God for not getting permission before the partial lunar Eclipse last Saturday
  • Moon & I for all our wise cracks over the years. BRING.IT.ON. Imagine all the letter possibilities!

That should get you started! Happy suing random people!


Who ELSE should Summit sue!??

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!
