Twilight eats the month of June (and spits out a SUPERFAN) Part 1

Dear month of June,

I wondered where you went. And then I remembered. You went to Twilight.

First there was that time we met Stephenie Meyer which was kinda cool. I mean meeting a sort-of-hero, someone who inspired us to be who we’ve become, reason we’ve gotten through many of the days for the past year and 1/2? Yeah…. no biggie. We made some videos. Try not to love us too much:

After the epic meeting I put on a new shirt (Thanks Moon!) hopped on a red eye flight home to Philadelphia where I arrived at 6 am. Then I packed some final boxes because friends & family showed up at 8 am to move us ah hour away. I have no recollection of that day.

But I love British Boys....

Oh WAIT, before the British shirt & the red eye & the moving, Moon & I laid at the pool & wrote an article for CREME magazine in New Zealand. They are a teen magazine with whom we’ve become friendly & they wanted to hear about our experience with Stephenie. More on that later.

After 6 days in my new house, it was time to put on my SUPERFAN face. Basically a few weeks prior I got a phone call from my roommate from college who runs Urlesque.com which is owned by AOL which owns Moviefone.com. Moviefone was doing some secret Twilight events, one is in Philly. Did I want to go!? HECK YES! Then she said she could probably get me involved. Would I like to be? HECK YES. Somehow, I end up becoming a SUPERFAN which was actually QUITE fun- I got to interview Jackson Rathbone! SUPERFAN WHAT!?

I was worried about what to wear to interview Jackson. I tried this on but it didn’t seem right….

I dragged along some friends and my sister, who I made promise wouldn’t embarrass me, thought that getting a wolfpck tattoo would hold up her end of the bargain (Which I called The Cullen Crest- #FanFail)

Funny story- after the Jackson deal we went to an art show at a loft down the street from my house in Philly- the artist complimented my sister & her friends on their tattoos & asked if they were FRIENDSHIP tattoos. She thought they were real. As any regular LTT reader would know, you’re supposed to respond, “yes, yes that is a friendship tattoo” but noooo she admitted they were wolfpack tattoos & confessed I was a SUPERFAN.

But first this happened after the jump: Continue…

Remember when we met Stephenie Meyer?!

Dear Stephenie Meyer,

Remember that time you invited us and some other folks to come meet you, hang out for 4 hours, eat bacon, and talk about Twilight? Yea, well we were beginning to think it was all a crazy dream we had after eating some bad mushroom ravioli from the Olive Garden (Big Daddy’s birthday celebration!), kinda like when you had the dream about Bella and Edward in the meadow that spawned Twilight. Only as it turns out after opening our inbox and finding the following pictures it really DID happen after all!

Looking back at these pictures we can finally remembered what really happened…


Witness our last moment of dignity before I would tard/Brenden Fraser clap and UC would talk about her life being complete after a Wolfpack member mentioned “jorts” in an interview. Because, well our life would be complete if that happened. Oh and eating at the Olive Garden with Big Daddy. This isn’t too much to ask, is it?


Series Theories: Letters to what? Who let those girls in?
Twifans: We should definitely call security…


What Jodie, you’re a closet Gil Birmingham fan too? You’re SO right, Gil circa the Diana Ross video could definitely give Taylor Lautner a run for his money!


Lipgloss check… yup, still on.


UC: What do you think she’s thinking here?
Moon: She’s totes thinking if she cuts this interview 15 minutes early she still has time to run to the Water for Elephants set and beat traffic, dontcha think?
UC: Wait, I think she heard us…
Moon: but can we talk about how much the waiter looks like Mr. Molina? I bet the omlette bar has “the golden onion” as an ingredient!
UC: No, seriously she heard us. She just kicked me under the table with her cowboy boot.
Moon: that’s one long leg…

Caught in the act! Too busy breaking the Stephenie Meyer interview down Vanity Fair style WHILE in the interview to listen to whatever mind blowing Twilosophical thing you’re explaining about Edward at this exact moment.

Follow the cut to see the most epicness of all time. Trust me.

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!
