Dear LTT-ers and people who like scary movies and watch stuff like the Scream Awards-
Ashley, Chelsea and I had the pleasure of attending the Scream awards last night at the Greek Theater wherein Twilight was nominated for like 8 bajillion awards and wherein apparently EVERY celeb feels like showing up to check out the freaks n geeks. Mostly freaks. And wherein we dressed up like Twilight characters. Yup.
Here’s our story…
Being the freaks we are and because we had to (audience members come in costume) we went for authentic Twilight, New Moon Costumes. Like seriously we analyzed each characters outfits and pulled together costumes down to the minute details. Here we are as Alice, Rosalie and Victoria (as seen in New Moon)
Alice, Victoria and Rosalie giving our best bitch face
Ok, maybe we're not so mean!

Remember seeing this everywhere? (With the old release date!)
There’s nothing like your first time. The nerves, the jitters, the excitement, that nauseous feeling in the pit of your stomach. And then it’s over and suddenly you know what everyone has been talking about. You are no longer a virgin. A Twilight Movie virgin, that is! What did you think I was talking about?
We’ve talked about our first everything’s on here… first time reading the books, first time seeing the NM trailer, first time seeing each other in years, there’s a first time for everything BUT we’ve never talked about the first time we saw the movie in the theater. And it just so happens the other day UC and I were having a conversation about just this subject and here’s what we had to say…
UC: In August after I finished the books I found out it was going to be made into a movie and i was PISSED that it was being made into a movie b/c i knew it would suck. I saw ‘that girl from that movie with adam brody’ and then Cedric as Edward and was like “what the?” i will NOT watch this.” but duh.. time went on Moon: Hmmm Adam Brody… how about when you went and saw it? UC: I found 4 random people to see the movie with and then had drinks at pf changs after and stayed quiet while they talked about how Edward was NOT cute enough and how cheesy it was and i just had this FEELING Moon: (like the black eyed peas?) UC: (yup, like that)
Follow the cut to read the rest of our first time Continue…
You know one of our favorite things to do is ramble on about Twilight and Rob and have extended chats about everything in the twi-world which we dubbed “Breaking it down Vanity Fair style” in homage to our very first chat of this nature that spurred the creation of this blog. SOOOO when the new trailer came out Sunday night and after many folks requested we break it down, here we are BREAKIN’ IT DOWN for you! And as usual it devolves into a chat about something completely different but yet oddly related to Twilight. So since this is a loooong one… grab a cocktail (or a diet coke) and settle in as UC, Calli and I break this shiz down!
UGGGGhhh uuhhh AHHH!!
(refresh yo memory… as if you need it)
Wait, Carlisle is HOW old??
The one where Bella second guesses this whole thing…
Moon: ok burning daylight, lets hit it Moon: i love that because cathy was so fail and didn’t include some of the volturi legend they have to do all this backtracking… “the volturi?! who’s that?! they have LAWS??” Yea you should have known that from the last book Bella. UC: wasting chris weitz’ precious time Calliope: she’s all like HOLD UP BACKUP UC: and while youre at it.. who is buttcrack santa again? This changes EVERYTHING! Calliope: wtf didn’t you tell me about this LAST TIME UC: I wouldn’t’ have fallen in love with you had I known about the Volturi! Carlisle is HOW OLD? Dude? I’m crushing on you’re 300something year old dad? Moon: I’m not sure I wanna date you now Edward, is that Newton kid still down? Calliope: I bet Edward says.. “Second thoughts bella?” all assholey on her like “TOLD YOU SO” Calliope: she’s like … hold up… you’ve been celibate for HOW LONG Moon: HAHAHA FOR THIS?! UC: wait.. you eat MOUNTAIN LIONS? Ew Moon: this changes everything! Trailer fades to black. The end Calliope: yeah though granted, it makes more sense to discuss the volturi now, for the non-readers (all 10 of them) to have movie flow UC: good job cathy the cougar Calliope: but seriously. Bella needed this info LAST movie UC: right… we really do need to worry about the 10 ppl left in the world who haven’t read Moon: and dont forget they still have to touch on jaspers special power UC: and they did NOTHING with the Alice story Calliope: “wait a second,… jasper controls my emotions?!?! WTF edward… i trusted you!!!!!!!!!!!!!” UC: So it’s Jasper that’s been making me feel that tingly feeling down there? I thought you were skilled! Moon: so my first unicorn was all a ruse by you and your emotion altering BROTHER?! What kind of sick family is this?! Calliope: Oh edward… clearly this is his first relationship. Edward is suck a fail boyfriend… just tells her what he wants her to hear.
Wanna see what else we talked about? Hint: Matlock, Mattresses and Afros… YUP follow the cut Continue…
Today’s the day for the MTV Music Video awards aka the day we get to see the trailer (a higher quality version at least), see some Twilight star action and of course the music video for Meet Me on the Equinox by Death Cab for Cutie! It’s an action packed day to say the least. Though some/most of you might after already seen the trailer by now that was leaked online, I am taking one for the team because I have agreed to record myself and my viewing parties reaction to the trailer ON VIDEO. Yea, I might totes embarrass myself but hey, that’s normal right? So I’m prepping my vocal chords for my best fangirl sqee’s, microwaving some carrots for hor’dourves and ironing my Pattinson Pants to prepare for tonight’s festivities.
Don't trip yall! I mean Kristen!
Since I’ve vowed to remain a pure virgin (that’s what Rob likes) until the big moment to preserve my honest reaction I’ve stayed away from the interwebs since Friday except to write this blog post and created my purity my own personal purity campaign: “Worth the Way 09.” And since the temptation is so strong I’ve even had a sponsor to help me stay on track since UC is away on a mini weekend vacay. Kristin (rockin’ forum mod) has talked me down from several ledges in my quest to stay pure. Everytime I’d get the itch or I just happen to be getting on my computer to “check my email” she’d text out of the blue to ask me what I was up to or to tell me Rob didn’t like it when I lied. It’s like SHE KNEW! I was just a junky looking to hide my attempts at getting my hit. It was like my other personal episode of Intervention. Only I’m addicted to Vampires and a boy named Rob and a book written for teens and not the bad stuff. Buuutttt here we are, we’re finally to Sunday and it’s t-minus a few hours until I can finally see what we’ve all be waiting for: shirtless Rob The New Moon Trailer!!!!!
What I’m looking forward to:
Death Cab music video
Ashley as the fashion correspondent on the red carpet. Can we just imagine for 2 seconds how she’s going to lie when she asks Rob/KStew who they’re wearing and then tells them they look great
Seeing whether Rob steals his shirt from David Slade or the hotel bel hop
Double checking that the front doors and windows are locked for when Taylor presents. I don’t need Chris Hansen sneeking in
Will Kstew, trip, fall or otherwise make out entire evenings?
The trailer (uh, duh)
(yup, this is it if you haven’t seen it yet)
So what are you looking forward to? And won’t you join us as I live Tweet the awards from the West Coast starting at 830ishPST. Will I pass out? Will Rob revive me with only his gaze through the TV screen? How many cupcakes will I shove in my mouth? Only time will tell!
As you all know Thursday I was able to attend the 2nd coming of Jesus, aka the New Moon panel at Comic Con and I have a little (ok, it’s quite long) story to share with you! So that means it’s story time with Moon!
Sit back relax grab your poison of choice (mine’s a diet coke as the CC folks learned) and let’s get to it!
Once the news came out that there would in fact be a New Moon panel and presentation at Comic Con the California LTT/LTR gals KNEW we had to be there, come hell or high water. And trust, there was a lot of hell and a lot of high water. But finally tickets were secured and plans made for several groups of Cali gals to converge on Comic Con last Thursday…
Making up part of the LA/OC group Chelsea and I headed down to San Diego Wednesday afternoon to meet up with our SD gals to plot, plan and scheme how we would make this happen. By Wednesday morning there were already reports of 100-ish Twihards in line and by the time we reached San Diego that evening a reported 500 were now in line. So we jumped in the car with VickyB and headed down to scope out our competition…
The sign pointed us towards heaven on earth
An impromptu little tent city of Twihards set up on the outside of Hall H. Since we knew there was no point in waiting in line over night at this point and in all honesty we didn’t want to (we just wanted to be in the room not in the front row), we honked and continued on in search of food and good times
Since we were going to be seeing Rob the next day we first stopped off to get some slutty outfits for our Comic Con Preparedness Kits. No Cullen crest or Team Jacob shirts for us. It was hooker lucite heels, cootchie cutter shorts and whips that we were looking for!
Let me tell you the rest of the story… after the cut! Continue…
