What we were actually thinking during our Stephenie Meyer Interview

Dear LTTers,

You’ve learned that Stephenie actually reads LTT; you’ve seen our EPIC picture of the LEGHITCH with the creator of the LEGHITCH; you’ve heard about Midnight Sun- the book we hope she loses the manuscript for so no one has to read that piece of crap; you’ve heard us hint that there’s much more to share. We thought we were already pretty generous, but apparently sharing 3 pieces of our 4 hour conversation wasn’t enough for you all. Sheesh. So demanding.

Anyway, this week we had a chance to listen to some of the audio we took *sniff* 4 weeks ago today, and let me tell you: Re-listening to this stuff was pretty awesome. While it was only 4 weeks ago, so much has happened in both of our lives that it seems like it was FOREVER ago. So getting to hear Stephenie’s voice again nice & loud and clear (because Moon had the microphone all up in her personal space- she was basically sitting on her lap she was so close to her) was a great reminder of the amazing experience & how blessed we still feel for getting picked to be a part of the day!

Aww! The whole gang

Sappiness over. Let’s get real. Here’s what was really going through our heads during the interview:

Leg hitch, Hunt, Imprint

UC: I’m offended
Moon: ME too
UC: WHY does Stephenie immediately think we’d ask something that might make her blush? As if!

Moon: Which one is Fred again?
UC: He’s not Xavier! I know that…! Is he “The red head?”
Moon: No.. that’s Edward…Ohhh he’s the one who smells
UC: hahahaha (I totally read his “gift” as a smell thing- sorry Steph)

Vampires aren’t Stephenie’s “thing”

UC: Did Stephenie imply she and Michael Sheen were talking about how Stephen King is lovely?
Moon: Yeah I think so…. Do you think she knows?
UC: About the awful things he said about her!? Of course she knows. My grandma even knows! She cut out a newspaper clipping and mailed it to me when she read about that!
Moon: And yet.. she still called him lovely…
UC: Stephenie Meyer 1, Stephen King, 0

Oh heeeyyyyy Stephenie likes Xavier too

UC: So it’s official.. Cathy Hardi never got Stephenie high by telling her it was an herbal sleep aid?
Moon: I was so sure it happened at least once
UC: We’re still convinced though that Stephenie had a few sips of the Ultimate Cougarita (the drink named after Cathy at TGIFridays, in case you’ve forgotten) because Cathy told her it was a special virgin cocktail made especially for her?
Moon: Oh for SURE that happened. Cathy wasn’t going to try to sneak into Rob’s room without a partner!

My newfound respect for Bella

You know when you have a conversation with a friend, then you tell her to slow down or repeat what she said and while she’s speaking you take out a notebook and jot down the conversation so you can remember it for a blog post later? Or when a friend is telling you a completely unrelated story about something random and you interrupt her to tell her- YOU SHOULD TURN THAT INTO A BLOG POST FOR ME? Yeah… that’s become my life. That’s how Twilight Follows ME everywhere I go. So when I got an email from Alice_NaA about an experience she had the other day, I quickly took the opportunity to have her turn it into content for ME. I’m cool like that!

Dear Edward,

I just had my first ever laser hair removal session this morning. It BUUUUUUUUUURRRRRRRRRRRRNNNNNNNNSSSSS (and not in the ‘Ring of Fire’ kinda way). Like seriously. I nearly fainted afterward. No joke. I had to lie down for 5 minutes. It was really REALLY painful. (Dermatologists call it “uncomfortable”. Dermatologists also lie.) And then I started thinking:

This is just a fragment of how it must feel when you are being transformed into a vampire (the fact that I’m thinking about twilight, while my hair roots are being burned is normal). I understood that it must be a really painful experience.

“The pain was bewildering…It felt like I was being sawed in half, hit by a bus, punched by a prize fighter, trampled by bulls, and submerged in acid, all at the same time…like grabbing the wrong end of a curling iron…the fire blazed hotter” Bella, Breaking Dawn.

But truthfully, even with Stephenie Meyers uber-clear metaphors, I still didn’t really get it. Maybe that’s because I just happen to be the one person who has never been sewn in half or trampled by bulls. But I DID got pro-wave laser, and I TOTALLY get it now. Holy crap! She must have suffered SO badly. For me it was merely the first or whatever layer of epidermis, for a whole five minutes tops. I can only imagine what it must be like to have this pain for three whole days, EVERYWHERE. And just like that, I have gained a lot more respect for Bella.

For starters, the mere fact that she endured it. Although once you’re in that stage, there is kinda no way back, but still. She made sure chapter 19 was still an interesting read.

“Downstairs, someone was watching a ball game. The mariners were winning by two runs.”

Had that been me, chapter 19 would have been:

“IT BUUUUUUUUUUUUURRRRRRRRRNNNNNNNNNNNNNSSSSS.KILL ME.NOW! YOU’RE A DEAD MAN EDWARD!”

Secondly, she even didn’t get a nice pre-burning stage ceremony (aka sexytimes with you. on a rug. in front of the flickering flames of an open fireplace.), but had to witness a lot of bickering over the little monster that was slowly killing her from within her own womb. I at least had a yummy breakfast, a relaxing drive singing along with Talking Heads, thinking I was just gonna feel a little “uncomfortable”. (Dear doctors, the scale of comfort has a WIDE range. All the way from an afternoon nap in a sleep number bed with the Edward man pillow, to watching Big Daddy eat a burger after his annual one-day diet. BE MORE SPECIFIC.)

But most importantly, she let you believe she didn’t suffer any pain.

“I kept my face smooth and nodded and thanked my rarely lucky stars that Edward could not read my mind…I knew the numbness of the medicine was completely irrelevant while the venom seared through my veins. But there’d been no way I was going to mention that fact.”

I would have ripped your little lying ass to pieces the moment I woke up. All this CRAP about you not wanting her to lose her soul, while you mentioned the pain and burning sensation maybe once or twice.  I could only imagine a ‘stepping into a too hot bath’-burning feeling and I’m pretty sure that was what Bella was expecting too- Not that it REALLY BUUUUUUUUUUUUURRRRRRRRRNNNNNNNNNNNSSSSSS. DUDE. Should have treated Bella to a laser hair removal session to convince her to stay human. It would have worked. Trust.

Love,
Alice_NaA

First it’s been WAY too long since Edward got a letter, so thanks for remedying that, Alice! And secondly, how has Twilight crept into YOUR life lately?

Our internet game is ridiculous: LTR, The Forum, Twitter, The Store

News on Breaking Dawn Production aka NO news on Breaking Dawn Production!

Dear Twilight and well, Breaking Dawn I suppose…

Today two posts came out referencing news behind the production of Breaking Dawn. While a few months ago we all thought making BD was a foregone conclusion and Summit was just waiting for New Moon to shatter box office records to make it official it’s been almost a month and a half since New Moon’s release and still no announcement. Since news on the twi front has been about as sparse as smiles at a KStew photoshoot, so any sort of news to come out will indefinitely make waves. But after reading both posts from the bitchtastic Ted C and a dude in his mom’s basement in North East Philly we learn… exactly… NOTHING. Why yes, it’s like a Robsten rumor… a lot of drama, a lot of words, a lot of retweets, a lot of “maybe’s” but no actual substance or truth. Someone at the LA Times spoke with producer Wyck Godrey and got this bit of totally evasive information regarding the splitting of BD into two films  “…If it’s not organic, I don’t think it will be done, and if it is, it will be…” Wow, heavy.

Breaking Dawn = tons more creepy images made by fans!

So we still don’t know if it will be made into two films (please say yes), whether Summit will hire geneticists to create a human vampire hybrid in their lair of doom (aka studio offices in Santa Monica) to play Renesmee, whether Taylor Lautner will in fact act out imprinting on a newborn baby, if Nikki Reed and KStew can patch up their differences long enough to play convincing as frenemies on screen, will Jacob and Leah spend 3/4ths of the movie running around the perimeter of the Cullen’s house “on patrol” thus reenacting the most boring parts of BD, will there be a behind the scene documentary on the making of Isle Esme which features all the “fade to black” scenes they cut out?

Sooooo many questions and ZERO answers.

Monday Funnies: Inappropriate thoughts that haunt me about Twilight

Dear people sitting at work hungry for things to distract them from the fact that it’s Monday and you’re sitting at work,

With a new Twilight saga movie, we’re treated with TONS of things we can feature for Monday Funnies.  Get ready for this one. Put down your coffee cup. Go run and pee. Then go pee again and practice your quiet office giggle because this one is gonna have you rolling.  Thanks to @nwalmn on Twitter for sending this our way. And to the blogger, The Bloggess, who is bringing us today’s Monday Funnies:

Inappropriate thoughts that haunt me about Twilight:

1. Why the hell am I reading the Twilight series?

2. The Twilight vampires are so strong that they can inadvertently knock someone’s head off if they aren’t paying attention because humans are as softer than butter compared them. So wouldn’t having sex with Bella be like f*cking a wishing well?

3. No, really. Why am I reading these? I’m 35, for God’s sake. This is more embarrassing than that summer I had all those weird sex dreams about Dumbledore.

4. Wait, I mean Snape. Not Dumbledore. No one has sex dreams about Dumbledore. That would be disgusting.

5. Okay, fine. It was a three-way with Snape and Dumbledore. Ron Weasley was watching for some reason. That part was weird.

Umm Brilliant so far? Yes. Read the rest after the jump! Continue…

Wednesday LTT Twivia

Dear LTTers who need a refresher,

Tonight after I rocked the mic with Bon Jovi at our first ever LTT karaoke party in Los Angeles, some of the gals decided to do a little “Twivia” aka: Twilight Trivia. The loser had to down a really gross shot. I knew NONE of the answers. I was ashamed. And also kinda tipsy, so I blamed it on the Goose. But it got me thinking that maybe it was time for a refresher.  New Moon is coming out in less than 48 hours (YAY!) and SOME of us are re-reading it, but maybe it would be good to go over some of the most common questions that people have about the Twilight Saga- specifically about Breaking Dawn and all the love-making in front of a fire on a bear skin rug that apparently goes on.

I consulted my favorite source for quality questions and answers, Wikianswers and just know that the following information will be of great value for your life.

(Note: These are actual questions I found followed by actual answers by WikiAnswers users. MY response is in purple below the real answer)

Breaking Dawn might not come out because this is creepy as f*ck


Q
Why might breaking dawn not come out?

A:  Well on YouTube, it shows trailers of Breaking Dawn. Even pictures of the Reneesme’(s) playing Reneesme; so I’m pretty sure they are making Breaking Dawn in to a movie. I’ve seen the trailer’s for Breaking Dawn, and they totally relate to the book. The actors work on all the movies together, to get it done faster and to make more money, So they could be making Breaking Dawn right now.

On you tube there’s also a video of me with an Edward Cullen life-sized cut out holding hands and kissing in my bed. And that’s true- I am Edward Cullen’s real-life girlfriend, so I guess everything on you tube is rightt. So yes, Breaking Dawn must be coming out soon.

Q In Breaking Dawn do they describe the sex scene?

A: The sex scene in Breaking Dawn is described to some extent, however, Stephenie Meyer doesn’t go into very explicit details. She describes the before and the after scenes, and it does say that they had sex.But you know if bella skipped a period, that means she had sex and she’s pregnant.

Oh S*it. Is that what it means? I hear that sometimes though when you throw up to stay skinny you can skip a period. Maybe that’s why I haven’t gotten mine the past few months. What about this growing bump around my tummy though? Does Stephenie explain what that is? And I also hear that if you ride horses a lot when you’re younger you can lose your virginity. Is this true?

Q What is the name of Carlisle Cullen’s father?

A: Never told – But rumored to be Ptolemy, Which mean’s to Hunt, war, war like, and aggressive.

Wow- Twi-dork of the day award. Also, I agree. Ptolemy was a really popular name in London in the 1640s. Wasn’t it King Edward IV, then King George, King Charles then King Ptolemy?
