I may have had a break with reality or two yesterday:
I was thirsty, tired from too much Guitar Hero the night before (I rock Linkin Park, BTW–99%!), my flight was delayed making me worry about making my connection, and our plane was taken out of service meaning we had to run to our new gate. That being said, I thought I saw Robert Pattinson at O’Hare, from a distance, until I reminded myself that my friends at Letters to Rob had informed me that Rob was in London for his holidays. Then when I boarded my plane a man who looked remarkably like Peter Facinelli was sitting in First Class. No lie.
That’s when I saw a unicorn! And by that I mean a mythical beast: a grown man reading New Moon in public.
P.S. Christapie is our first friend at LTT (letters to twilight)- she found us on day 1! And she really did see a grown man reading New Moon in public! Read the whole hilarious story here!
Dear Hot Topic (and other fine Twilight retailers),
All I want for Christmas is a Twilight Calendar. I even wrote a song about it (enjoy below). My husband says (yes, I have a husband and want a twi-cal, so what?) that when he asks for them at your store and other calendar stores, the clerks literally LAUGH at him. Why don’t you stop laughing at my husband and just give him a twi-cal to let me open Christmas morn?
It’s a bummer.. I saw tons of calendars last month.. he should’ve bought one then. Oh well, it’s his fault if I divorce him when I don’t get my only Christmas wish. Or it’s your fault. Or amazon’s fault for selling a calendar made by a poor 7 year old boy in a third world country for $49.89
PS: I’d also take Rob, naked, wrapped in a bow under my tree. xo
*Do YOU have a Twilight wish for Christmas? Write your own letter and email it to email@example.com or comment below!
I’m going on date #5 with Brian this week. Sometimes when I look at pictures of Brian’s sister, I think about how I know we’ll be friends. I think tomorrow when I see Brian I’m going to urge him to let us meet. I’ll say “but I’m going to love her Brian.”
It’s taking over. The lines are blurring. Sometimes when I clench my jaw or my heartbeat quickens, I wonder if he is picking up on it like Edward would.
*received this morning via Facebook. Has Twilight taken over your life like it has for LL (and us?) Tell us about it. Send us a letter to firstname.lastname@example.org or comment below! xo
i finally saw you! and i LOVED you!
yes, i had my issues with you… how rushed bella and edward’s relationship was, (although i did feel it was rushed in the book too), how you could have done so much more with edward’s vampire abilities and attributes, how choppy the story was and how you just threw so many parts of the book randomly into the movie… and overall could have adapted the screenplay much better and told the story in a more cohesive manner….
but you know what? i didn’t care. i enjoyed myself the entire time and was excited to finally see the story and characters in my head… in real life. well, in movie life.
of course, the casting of edward and bella were pretty much perfect. also perfect? JESSICA. omg, like, omg so totally perfect!! *giggle* i also fell in love with alice and wish i could throw a baseball as gracefully as she. surprisingly, i found mike endearing and kinda funny (i found him pretty annoying in the book). i was also surprised at how disappointed i was with jacob. i guess i like him better in my head…my jacob. and rosalie was not the drop dead gorgeous model she could/should have been. oh, and i did not realize how ethnically diverse Forks high school is? i mean, come on now… but actually, i’m glad that you decided to use diversity (hollywood is always lacking). i do have one question though…. eric? really?
oh, and the song choices! its like you were speaking right to my heart. and i read somewhere that kristen stewart was the one who chose the iron and wine song for the ending of the movie. mmm…yes. i had such a good time and i will definitely watch you again. i am excited for what you will do with the sequel… can’t wait.
*note from editor: I was trying to find a great video for the end of this post, and I got really distracted looking at vids of the kissing scene. I was so annoyed b/c most of them were from the trailer (why didn’t any little girls use their iphones to record THAT scene in the theater?) and to the song “Kiss me” by Sixpence none the Richer… but I found this. And at first I laughed, then I swooned… sigh
This conversation happened via AIM chat and e-mail with my college roommate:
11pm 12/14 via AIM chat: i know you understand this, but i just spent the last 40 minutes googling twilight because i don’t want to do my [grad school] final.
i want to go see the movie again, i think i might go one afternoon this week by myself
We discussed her thoughts on Breaking Dawn (which she just finished) and I told her about Midnight Sun- WHICH SHE DID NOT KNOW ABOUT! (oh- do YOU not know about it? Stop what you’re doing. Must read now) We said good-night. I awoke this morning to this email:
4:03 am 12/15 e-mail: if i do bad on my final it’s all your fault because I just finished reading midnight sun. And thank goodness it wasn’t the whole book or I probably wouldn’t go to bed and wouldn’t study at all.
darn twilight and it’s irrestible plot. darn edward cullen for being so darn attractive and perfect.
