While Moon was Gone…
As of press time (aka 5:52 pm on Sunday evening while in my pink robe & before heading out the door to see PAUL MCCARTNEY (yes, a Beatle! WEE) I haven’t even spoken to Moon yet except through a few text messages. She’s home. She’s safe. She’s exhausted. I’m sure she is going through a transition of going from a 3rd world country back to LA…. where the world’s couldn’t be any different. So while we can’t wait to hear from her and ALL about her trip…. I thought we’d give her a day or so to debrief. And talk about how much we missed her and how much she missed!!!
While you were gone… Rob fell for me, Kellan repented & joined the priesthood, Big Daddy ate an entire Olive Garden (yes, even the bar stools) and Mr. Choice literally joined Team Jacob. He and Taylor Lautner ran off together which makes it easy to be with Rob now….
Okay not really- that’s my dream “While Moon was gone” (minus my husband and Taylor opening up an Alpaca farm together) But a LOT of stuff happened. In fact, we thought of you ALL THE FREAKIN’ TIME. And so I asked the readers we know and love so well to send in stuff that made them think of you- Twi related… or not. And did they EVER! We got so many submissions that I can’t even post them all. And I was SO good at keeping track of them all (as you’ll see by my daily break-down of stuff that happened) and then I went on vacation and missed a few days- whoops. But you get the point. We missed you SO much.. and are SO glad you’re home. I can’t wait to catch up- hear all about Africa, tell you ALL the drama that went down while you were gone (oh there was drama!) and celebrate your return!
While Moon was Gone…… this stuff happened….
Day 1 7/30/10
@Twilight tweeted about US!
The world ended (and clearly they don’t know about the not-so-friendly “Dear Summit” letters we’ve written:
Check it out! RT @TSTPodcast: New blog post: Fan Junket Friday With TwiFans & Letters To Twilight http://bit.ly/dt2Vod
@Janetrigs kept on hatin’ on
to tell you this from her new work email:
Please tell Moon, I hate her. That is my message.
Greeting Cards to get me through..
An LTT friend sent me this card to get me through the time you are gone:
Day 2 7/31/10
While you were gone you missed the most 2nd hand embarrassing moment evah…..
A fan video taping Kellan at LaGuardia airport in NY, who told him to tell her he loved her to her video camera, fell on her ass and he had to pick her up and give her a hug for her 2nd hand embarrassment (which the 2nd hand embarrasment happened twice so she should win an award. 1) she had him tell her he loved her and 2) she biffed it big time). I’m 110% sure after he got in his driver’s car he may have peed his pants a little laughing because that’s what I did (well I didn’t pee, but I almost did) when a lady ran into me in an elevator full force on my college campus and fell on her ass after she bounced off of me and the minute I got outside I almost peed my pants until I got to my car b/c I was laughing so hard.
Hope you are having a safe time!
A person who laughs hard at people who fall down b/c she can’t help it,
An excuse to laugh
Then this article came out: If Eclipse was 10 times shorter, 100 times more honest (read that, seriously)
Day 3 8/1/10
Samalia got THIS done:
(She said Team Mullelephant wasn’t available.)
Someone wrote you THIS poem:
Among all the blog lines
Sifting through I hide.
Lurking and knowing,
Relating to all described.
Laughing and blushing at all this good fun
While knowing that knowing is unfit.
That’s normal, don’t fear.
Come join in our play land.
Where vampires sparkle.
They glint and they glisten.
An unintended choice
To evolve into a beast.
Starving and hungry
For the next witty feast.
Not a love sick wolf
In some lust driven strife.
But a tormented average girl
Consumed by the lines.
Kiss, Kiss to Edward,
Kiss, Kiss Taycob, baby.
Charlie and Jasper,
Carlisle and Nessie.
You’re real in my head
and you rest near my pillow.
I delight in your story,
Clutch me tight and hold me closer.
I need you to fill empty spots of my days,
Never quite clear why your draw never fades.
Pages and pages
Week after week.
With the turn of the moon,
I grow and
Still I break.
Through a screen name I write.
Deep in the mess
of the twilight plight.
You make me happy and sad
and all things considered
I rather do this
Than be on facebook
So thank you
to all you who make my day
so very nice.
And thank you,
Oh, thank you for all these delights.
Love Spelled Backwards
FIGURED IT OUT!
While Moon was Gone… I heard a song on Pandora called “The Moon is Down” by Explosions in the Sky and finally figured out her sign-off…maybe?!
More after the jump!
Day 4 8/2/10
This got me through a Monday. Tweeted by @jet_set_go
Did you consider adopting an African orphan? NOT SO FAST…
So…I was perusing the interwebs and came across this lovely little diddy.
Moon missed out as the adoption seems to have taken place on July 30—one day after she left the country.
Oh well, perhaps we can hold out for a Renesmee or maybe for a welcome back gift for Moon, we can get the seller to make a little wolf baby offspring of Sam and Emily’s.
I may have nightmares tonight. Well, maybe even for the next month or so.
Day 5 8/3/10
Snore: This press release
The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 – 11/16/12
Director: Bill Condon
Cast: Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner
The astonishing conclusion to the series, THE TWILIGHT SAGA: BREAKING DAWN, PART 2, illuminates the secrets and mysteries of this spellbinding romantic epic that has entranced millions
I was just looking online and came upon some “interesting” and “special”
fan arts and manips
Moon just shouldn’t miss.
whenever I look at that picture the nose is the only thing I see…
Unicorn at Target
I ran to Target today to pick up (among other things) the paperback copy of Breaking Dawn–because I couldn’t have mix-matched paperback and hard cover so this will finally complete my sets… wait, no, I’ll still have to get the Bree paperback when that comes out. Ugh. Damn my Libra-ness unable to handle having mismatched sets.
Anyway a teenage boy rang me up. When he got to the BD book he says; “that’s a really good book. I loved the whole series.”
A unicorn? A real life, in-the, flesh unicorn? No freaking way.
I look up at him with new eyes. Sure he’s a teenage kid, a little scrawny, far too young to look at that way, but I’m impressed. He’ll make some girl very happy. Feeling oddly star-struck, I stupidly blurt, “really? I don’t know of too many guys who think that.”
Stupid! Stupid! Stupid! He’s an insecure teenager. I probably just made him embarrassed about that fact.
He shuffles his feet a little awkwardly as he bags up my items and then says as if he can’t believe he’s going to say this but he does, “yeah, I’ve read the series twice.”
And them he blushes! He’s too adorable. Wanting to ease his embarrassment I admit to him in a whisper as I swipe and sign my card, my whole two copy, complete set thing. He smiles and relaxes obviously feeling better that he’s not the normal person I am.
And that, my dear Moon is what you missed while you were wondering around on the other side of the world.
I was driving to work yesterday evening through Forks-like forests (yes, 15 minutes from my home in the heart of the capital city there is a forest and the airport is right in the middle of it) and on the edge of tree line there was a group of deers, mama deer and three baby deers. They were so cute and I said to them: “You’re not bears!” And when I took the camera out of my bag to tape them, they ran away. And I knew I have to share it with Moon & UC!
Day 6 8/4/10
Bea says: The husband informs me that Twilight has reached total cultural saturation:
The fact that he regularly reads this comic exempts me from all mocking associated with Twilight.
Day 7 8/5/10
The UPS guy dropped off package from ThinkGeek with this in it:
and I was like “Whaaat? I didn’t order this!” Apparently my husband did, though, and when I asked him who it was for he looked at me like I had two heads and said “For your brother’s baby who was born last week. Who did you think it was for?” Ummm, right. Definitely not for me…what do I need a creepy baby vampire pacifier for? No reason. Not because it’s super weird and I want to show it to all my crazy internet pals. Nope, not at all.
Day 8 8/6/10
Look-alike in backwoods PA
So I’m driving my way solo down through the backwoods of Pennsylvania, not a human being or signs of civilization for miles (and miles, and miles) when I spotted a total Taycob lookalike (completely ripped, tan, dark hair, no shirt, sporting the jorts, even the same circle-y, upper arm tattoo). I practically careened my little Ford Focus into his front yard where he was doing something with a garden rake (like, I don’t know, raking?). He gave me a smile (!!!) and I drove on, feeling like a complete wackjob (and a pervy one at that – I’d been staring, wait, make that ogling) and then I noticed that his house was on Stewart Ave! Get it?! Like Kristen?!! Oh, I need a life.
Dreams about Moon
You don’t know me, because I’m new to LTT and haven’t yet gotten up the courage to even introduce myself, but I am one of the many lurking fans who love you and UC and LTT/LTR.
As proof of that devotion, I offer this: This week I dreamed I met you! (I’ve never even dreamed about Robward, sadly. Well, I mean, yes, I’ve day-dreamed, because That’s Normal, right?!)
Anyway, in my dream I recognized you right away because you were wearing an “I <3 LTT” choker, with a big red heart on a white satin ribbon. I know, I know, wouldn’t-be-caught-dead-in, blah blah blah, but you know how dreams are. And in my dream, I was just as excited as if it had been Rob (well, OK, I’m exaggerating just the teensiest bit there).
But you were great: you were totally willing to have your picture taken with me, and you kept smiling as graciously as Rob himself would have as I tried and tried to take the picture and fumbled with my camera, which kept failing. (Hmm. Wonder what Freud would make of that? OK, let’s not go there.)
Oh, and I was witty, too, in my dream: I came up with a hilarious “second-hand something-or-other,” and you thought it was really funny, too! Unfortunately, once I woke up I couldn’t remember what my brilliant insight was. I was so planning on sharing it with the class!
Anyway, I guess I must really miss you if you’re showing up in my dreams, so I thought I’d pass this along to UC for you.

Wouldn’t Daddy Lautner be proud? Bet he asks the Olive Garden waitresses to address him as Big Daddy Hotner after this.
Day 15 8/12/10
