A year’s worth of Twilight and Rob shenanigans caught on video!

Dear LTT/LTR’ers,

Since we began planning this anniversary week I knew I wanted to make a video to help capture a little bit of the magic from this past year. I wanted to show all the people who met, all the concerts we went to, the cast members we met, all the 2nd hand embarrassing crap we did and all the stuff that we’ve written about that’s become folklore on the blog. And I even knew the song I wanted to use during the video… as it turns out we did SO much of that stuff, met so many people and had way too many good times I had to loop the song three times (it’s a short song) to fit it all in and I didn’t even scratch the surface of all the people who have met on here so I hope you’ve forgive me because I don’t have pictures of everyone but I hope you enjoy a little look back at the first year of Letters to Twilight and Letters to Rob.

Enjoy!

We love and appreciate you all so much! Words, videos and letters can’t come close to expressing it. Just know this is the place where we always hope you’ll come whether it’s a good day or a bad day, whether we’re funny or not, we love this little community!

Have a rad weekend!
Themoonisdown

This was my very first attempt at making a video with “moving parts!” Pat me on the back people! HA, I kid, but it is super fun! Since we don’t all live in Boston near “Cheers” what bar would you take us to if we came to visit? Share it with us in the comments!

One Year later and our internet game is still ridiculous: The Forum, LTR, Twitter

    Beautiful!

  2. Morning everyone! 🙂 It’s Friday! Already laughing loud enough to wake the neighbors!

    • Truth = so obviously I haven’t even read what Moon wrote yet, I was just so proud of myself for being able to see this early in the morning and had a real chance at being the first to post ! Cause it always takes me forever to read and I don’t get to post till like noon, figures its the ONE morning that she decides to be serious (only found this out after reading THE FIRST comment (which I was not and wonder why that bothers me so much, so NOT normal)! Gotta go read….

      • Naw! The video totally had some funny parts. I was laughing through lots of it. =)

        Hope your today is better than yesterday! *HUGS*

        Or that you can at least laugh at yesterday now that it’s over..

    • i hafta reply to what you wrote in your long post yesterday (i read it this morning) I’M SO SORRRY! stupid tree, crazy animals. you sounded like you really needed a huge hug… my face got all contorted as i read your post… consider yourself TOTALLY hugged *raps Blanked Rob about your shoulders*
      i hope that today is a 180 to yesterday. truth.
      *hug*

      • Aww Ambushed…how I luv ya…yes it was one of those days..in truth..that is a typical day which is why I love coming here so very much…no matter how bad it gets..everything is put back together here, b/c of people like you! (Also if I am on the couch/computer I am apt to NOT get in to trouble) !!
        Today the sun is shiny, the bird is still covered and I am here! All is right with the world!
        Loves ya but ya know that!
        xoxo

  3. First of all, O-M-G, that vid was hilar!
    Second: ya’ll look so cute!! There was many-a-outfit in that vid that I thought “Oh my gosh, bitchin’ outfit!”
    Seriously, I heart you all so bad!

    Mwah-ness.
    Jayde.

  4. Awe, loved the video!!

    And I DO live in Boston, so Cheers it is, because you want to be where everybody knows your name.

  5. Moon, that was just about perfect! The Tuck, Manbangs, Uncle Eddie, Buttcrack Santa, excessive blinking, Jacksper’s bat… and of course, the man we all know and love (and by “love,” I mean look around shifty-eyed for every time we catch ourselves looking at Taylor for a little *too* long) – Chris Hansen!

    Really, the only thing missing was Billy Burke, but that’s okay, I have enough Billy love to share. 😉

    (Incidentally, there is a full-length version of the Cheers theme. It has other verses! You can google it.)

    • P.S.- If you came to Memphis, I’d take you to the Lamplighter, it’s like drinking in your Grandma’s basement.

    • I have heard enough about the copstache to last me decades, thank you very much. Excuse me, I need to continue the brain bleaching process and attempt to remove myself from the fetal position today. Bwahahahaha!

      • Gah! Effery! and other assorted swears…Thanks Sparkle LOL….that is all

      • Hahahahaha! Well, if you’re at the brain bleaching step, then that means you’ve gotten out from under the covers?

        • Yes, I am no longer wearing my protective fleece blanky burka.

        • You girls are soooo weak. Imma buy you all slashfic purity rings for xmas (except tuesday, HIGH FIVE PARTNER IN CRIME!)

          • *HIGH FIVE* I ❤ your dirty mind! (Even though it wasn't THAT dirty, but I have all the faith in the world that you could have gone further into its pervy depths… hehe, pervy depths.)

          • It really wasn’t that dirty! They just think slashfic is “ew”. Their loss! Honestly, I bet that they’d totes be fine with a Burke/Bewley threesome.

  6. i think we have a mutual appreciation club goingon here…

    but in answer to you question about a “Cheers” type place i’d take you to Winslows Tavern. It’s absolutely awesome and not too expensive and the front is like a bar/pub and the back is restaurant/wine/coffee-bar. it used to be an OLD hardware store downtown and it has the rafters and wood floors, but they’s been stripped so the wood is a blond color instead of dark. they have like 80 beers on tap (a plus) and the food is very good. it has a small loft overlooking the bar for small groups/parties (that’s where we’d go) and i love it there. if i hadn’t moved to another town i’d go there every week.

    • Where is this magical place?!

      • Greenville NC (USA)

        and from the back side of the same building is an adorable boutique named Dulcinea (not named after the Toad the Wet Sprocket album) and it is super awesome. the lady that runs it did the decor for the tavern owners and they are both loves of mine. she makes glass jewlery (and has other indi artists there too) and she makes some of the glass stuff to look like tiny sweets. (i have a tiny glass frosted cupcake on a necklace and a tiny slice of cake and a life size glass strawberry on a necklace, also a square ring that the center looks like a petit four http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Petit_four )

        i don’t have Facebook but if you do you can check out the place on there. LOVE it.

        • Toad the Wet Sprocket! That takes me back…

          • totally…. i love “fly from heaven”, “stupid”, “windmills” and most of all “crowing” – imma listen to it RIGHT NOW! *sigh*

            hey, i just realized “crowing” totally fits bella and jake, or Edward (depends on which part you apply it to) – HA! real-life meets Twilight AGAIN!

  7. Love, love it! Ah the memories. I got a tad nervous when Mr. Hansen appeared, though.

  8. Moon, LOVE LOVE LOVE the video, makes me feel like I really know you guys now although I had to use the last of my precious Edward tissues! I think you did such an awesome job!! You should do video’s from now on (for the reading challenged..ummm ME) Made me so want to really hang with you all…”Please come to Boston…”singing in my bad morning voice, don’t worry it doesn’t get better as the day progresses…and we will have an East Coast LTT convention…,I grew up in Boston and I had a memory back then…oh the places we could go and the things we could do..would make weaker women quiver!!!
    Thanks for making me cry/laugh at the same time.
    IT IS YOU AND UC that deserve all the love for giving us a 2nd home and family! Loves you lots…xoxox

    • *ships 2 virtual crates of Edward tissues to Cyndi*

      *blows kiss*

    • Cyndi! There is going to be a Twilight Convention next year at the Boston Convention Center! I’m going to bring you with me. No asking. It’s just going to happen.

      And yeah. A Twilight Convention. I am that much of a dork.

      • NO WAY!! Are you serious!! In Boston!!! OMELE!!! I am so going to that…(so I say right now..lol) Oh you made my day!!! BTW if your a dork…what does that make me???
        I can’t believe there is really a twi-convention in BOSTON! When is it..so I can start worrying about it now…lol…..you do realize it may require kidnapping to get me there right???

    • awwww cyndi you used the last of the edward tissues on us! im honored!

  9. Love!

  10. Awww … that was such a rollercoaster of feelings (yea, I’m THAT original)! I’ve LOL-ed and Awwwww-ed and my eyes are wet. Thank you for all the shenanigans.

  11. What a great video of your adventures. I so totes want to be there too..maybe for Eclipse (at IMAX!!!! 50 ft rob? Squeeee).

    A girl can dream.

  12. Too funny! Thanks for everything!

  13. Oh. Em. Gee. That was absolutely FABULOUS!

    CAPS LOCK DOES NOT TRULY EXPRESS MY FANGIRLY JOY!!!!

    You people are so much fun and I really appreciate this little video to remind me of that fact and make me laugh. So much fun over the last year.

    Thanks a million (laughs)

    ❤ you "ladies"

  14. That was so sweet!

    Fav part was pot bikini followed by the stew flipping everyone off.

    *wipes away tear*

    I wouldn’t take anyone to a bar because I’m a freak who doesn’t drink and hates loud music.

    We could totally go to my moms house and play guitar hero and rock band though. My house isn’t big enough.

    I know, I’m lame. I never said I was any different.

  15. That vid was hilarious!!!! and Hansen was so well-timed…Bravo Moon Bravo!

    In case Rob and Hugh Does come to NZ next year…my apartment is always open…to them as well as you…

    Happy cookie!
    Morning everybody!!!!

    • Grammar and caps lock fail…”Does” pffftttt..sorry

      • Morning ILWL..sorry I bailed last night…but I knew you would stay up just to keep me company and I so heart you for that, but you needed to sleep…so I went back to online shopping..I don’t think I found anything though…hope you rested..I am in need of the Trifecta full force!! xoxo

        • i missed u yesterday! but as u predicted i crashed on the couch and had to be relocated by fiance so that i dont develop spine problems…teehee…I’ll be in a little late cause I have work as usual (mutter mutter)…but i shouldnt be later than when we usually meet…LOL..

    • OH YAY!!!!! I’M SO GLAD YOU’RE ON RIGHT NOW.

      i saw something online the other day that made me think of you and i wanted to make sure that you’d see it.

      http://icanhascheezburger.com/2007/01/15/i-made-you-a-cookie/

      when i saw it you popped into my head, no lie.
      hope you like. (it’s SOOOOOO adorable)

        p.s. must practice those eyes…they will be very useful..for things…in June….teehee

        • YAY! i’m tickled pink (twss) that you like it! really does make me think of you… that’s weird, i know… don’t even “know” you… ah-well, i’m a visual person…

          MUAH!

          • teehee…Ur not the first LTT buddy to send me Twi-cookie stuff so its NOT weird at all…. 😀
            I’ve been called “cookie” since I was a baby…so I always love a good namesake…muah! for the smiles…

            I think we “know” each other…just not in a biblical or i’ve-met-you-in-RL way..and as of June…that might change..(not biblically though…I wish…but I’m saving meself for Tay) bahahahahaha

      • That’s soooo cute. I eated it. hehehe

    • Meeting you . . . meeting you AND Rob AND Hugh . . . meeting you AND Rob AND Hugh in NZ? I’m going to climb in someone’s suitcase because I can’t be left out of this.

      • You be left out of an Illegal Hugh Rob reunion? NEVER!!!

        May pics of Swiftner making out (fur realz) come out before that happens…(ok typing that made my heart hurt and squee at the same time) so weird….
        muah!

  16. I live in Philly & if you guys came to visit we would deff go to Apothocary bar…the best bar in Philly (in my opinion!). Not just UC & Moon but anyone on here!!!!!

    I was telling someone a story and I used the word unicorn. They looked confused so I said “oh thats what my friends call guys who like Twilight” wait. what? My friends? So now you people who I dont know and I mostly just read your comments and dont comment back…you are my friends…and thats normal!!!!

    My blog: (just started writing again)

  17. That video is great! While somewhat of a fringe member, I feel like this community of ladies is one of the funnest and best out there.

    If I do ever meet you ladies someday, be prepared because I have my own maryjane bikini and I’m not too shy to wear it to a red carpet event. Mine has detachable roach clip feather accessories, tho.

  18. OMG Moonie Pie the video was AMAZEBALLS!! Thanks a lot for letting join in on the craziness and bringing a bunch of us together! We love you guys and thank you for the good times and the memories!!

    • BTW I would definitely take you guys to The Londoner, Sherlock’s, or The Big Apple if you came to my side of town! 😀 Love you girls! XO 😉

  19. Crying…LOL….one loud unattractive, guffaw…..crying….spewing coffee…..crying…….LOL………raw, unbridled jealously tinged with hate…..crying…..
    LOL…….crying.

    The last picture…. ❤

    Here's to a fabulous year of, 'taking advantage of time I was already wasting.' (as per UC.)

    Love you all.

  20. I was doing just fine till the pic of Kristen in her pot bikini. And then I may have cried.

    Precious, tender, holy memories.

    That’s just good programming right there.

  21. Seeing The Tuck in the montage was like watching one of those videos of a peaceful countryside where suddenly a zombie pops up.

    It is my 2010 New Year’s Resolution to appear in your 2nd Anniversary video. I’m willing to partake in all of the cast stalking, jorts wearing and Heineken drinking necessary to make this happen.

  22. The karaoke part just slayed me for some reason! [nice editing btw – fan-girl shrieking-into-singing – lol] You’re too cute! Having a Twi-bff/partner-in-crime is the best. thing. ever.

    maybe i am just a big sap (ok i am definitely a big sap) but that made me feel all warm and fuzzy. except for the photoshopped pics, anyway. Um, those made me feel icky. jortsy-mullet Rob = {{{shudder}}}

    : )

  23. Awww, I am sad I can’t watch this at work. 😦 THIS is why I hate my job! (ok, not really, but still)

    Aaaaand, I live near Boston and the Cheers bar. No one there knows my name. Only here. YAY!

  24. Wow, pretty sure there isn’t one pic of me in there where I wasn’t highly under the influence.

    Good times…wouldn’t trade them for the world.

    Moonie, I can’t wait to get home and listen to this with sound!!

    PS, almost spit out my coffee when the tuck came strolling by. JFC, warn a sister. mmmkay?

  25. That made me miss Brookie and Marta (HAPPY BIRTHDAY again) even more than regular. And miss Ms. Kristy, even though I just saw her, and Carter (who I could possibly see soon if she comes “home” for Xmas), and UC (for a yum yum brunch), and Moon, who I haven’t met, and all the crazies from #bobbypoloza. That gave me tears and I hardly ever tear up in front of people….

    #LegHitch2010, next year BITCHES!

  26. Of course, the irony with choosing that song is that few people here know your actual names…

  27. Omg that video is the best. I laughed at some parts but I also had goosebumps. I’m such a dork.

    I love you guys-you make my day, every day. I hope someday I’ll be able able to meet some of the hilarious women from this community-maybe even UC or Moon. How about an East Coast LTR/LTT get-together, UC?

    • yes.. yes.. we need to. Moon is the party-planning one. I am NOT.. but calliopeblabs was in a sorority.. so you know what that means… amazing skills at planning parties… so I’ve commissioned her to help me (with brookie & some others) plan something for this winter. after the holidays!

  28. Awww Good times 😀
    And no ribbons….

  29. Just got laid off from work and right before Christmas! Anyway, had to come here today (as I do everyday) for some smiles and laughter. Thanks ladies!

    • BIG Hugs from someone who knows what that’s like.. 😦 (not me.. but the husband..) Glad we could cheer you up today
      XO

      • Yeah, my hubby just got a GREAT Christmas bonus and I got laid off…………….strange times we live in. Anyhoo, is it normal that this is the first place I wanted to come to cheer me up? HALE yeah, that’s normal! 🙂

        • And once again my gravatar doesn’t show up though someone told me it was there. I give up on that silly little picture!

    • I’m so sorry, you’re not alone. I hope you will still have a very Merry Christmas despite of that. My DH was laid off 3 yrs ago and I got pregnant right after that. It was very hard.

      Big hugs.
      SB

    • i’m SO sorry about the job… that is a major stinker-roo. i hope things improve for you quickly and that you’ll get a replacement job quickly. buck-up and try to keep a stiff-upper-lip and all that… *offers a comforting hug*

    • Sorry about the job! At least DH got a bonus though, right?

      For your avatar issues, make sure you put in the right email addy that corresponds to your wordpress acct.

  30. Moon, I LOVE IT!!!

    The “I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter” picture made me snort my coffee through my nose, omg…

    As I mentioned on an earlier post – man, I wish I had some Twi-friends to experience these types of shenanigans with…

    When I get home I’ll have to listen to the movie with sound, lol. I can’t use speakers here at work..

    -Athena

  31. So reminds me of the videos I get from the preschool each year. Makes me wanna sing “Best friends, always together. Best friends, never apart.” *tear*

  32. ahahahaha, The Tuck made me choke on my Honeycomb. Hilarious, video completely with a bunch of people I want to meet, and one I have. haha 🙂

    XOXO!

    I really like that slogan – “taking advantage of time I was already wasting!”…

  33. That last picture of you two is beautiful. Totally sismance-worthy. (Is there such a word as sismance? There should be, anyway, and it would totally apply to you).

    The vid is like “a bluffer’s pocket guide to LTT: everything you need to know if you’ve been too lazy (and crazy, for that matter) to read their laugh lines every day for the past year”. Bril!

  34. What a sweet video!
    I’m sure I’m not the first to say it – but you gals are freakin’ HAWT! Go You!

  35. Looks like you gals have so much fun!!
    I would take you all to our local brewery/pub, but watch out….we call our state the “Land of EnTRAPment” and you might not beable to get home!

  36. Ah…makes me wish I could meet some of you (all of you!) in person!!

    speaking of *ahem* … so, there’s apparently a Twilight Convention in Arlington, VA in April and I really want to go, but there’s no one in my RL who shares my level of commitment/passion/frightening obsession to all things Twilight. But a girl cant go alone, right?? So…if anyone is in the greater DC area and is thinking about going and needs a partner-in-crime/enabler, let me know! Apparently Kellan and Peter and some worlfpack and volturi will be there, so yay!!

  37. Oh my God! You are all such beautiful ladies!
    Dany!! I can see you there!!!! eso chica!!!

    Thank you for a year of laughs and happiness

    xoxo

  38. That video was great. You ladies have certainly had a lot of fun over the last year!!!

  39. WWRD?

    He would laugh his @ss off, have a beer and ask himself what’s he doing with the mullet when he could be with the awesomeness that is you. Then he would put on his plaid shirt and go find a dumpster.

  40. I love this – you ladies know how to rock it.
    If any of the LTT/LTR posse is heading to Aspen,CO I would love to take you out..anytime any where..I would be thrilled to have you!

    • ASPEN? (I just said that like they do in Dumb & Dumber) it’s my dream to go there!

      • Where the beer flows like wine and the women instinctively flock to the tune of Capistrano?? yes…that’s the place…ha

        You should come visit!!! I would totally host a big LTT/LTR ladies trip to the mountains..summer or winter….I have lived here all my life so I can get screaming deals on lodging..tickets all the goods…

        You know how to find me…like I said…anytime!

  41. I have to post before reading the comments, because this is just TOO MUCH!

    That video is made of win! Uhmazing! No Twilight movie marathon will be complete now without it!

    You’ve really outdone yourselves. And exposed yourselves to us . . hehe. Don’t worry, if any of us loyal subjects ever find you behind a dumpster, we’ll just pet your heads . . .

  42. I remember when you first started and am so glad for your incredible successes over this year… and for bringing us all such good laughs. I am totally outing myself as a wuss but your video made me cry. This “fandom” has brought so much to me personally — solid relationships that I never would have had if not for a young girl and her sparkly vampire and the women like you who also have the guts to both love it and make fun of it….

    And may I personally thank you for 2:05 in your video. It made me jizz in my pants. xoxo

  43. Awwwwwww!!! Love you girls!!

    Side note: I’ve kinda been wondering where that forest photo shoot took place. And who did the photography! Hehe. 😛

    • haha… yeah.. we haven’t mentioned that yet… maybe we’ll do an EPIC post with our EPIC pictures…. we had a photoshoot….
      🙂

      HAPPY BIRTHDAY MARTA!!!!

      (and i”m sad you weren’t in those pictures- the one pic I have with you I don’t think Moon has ever seen… It’s on my facebook though. She was probably too lazy to find it. Lazy Moon. Staying up till 3:30 am to make a video, forgetting to include you!)

      • Thank you (for the bday wishes)!! How was dinner w/sis?

        😦 I was almost forgotten?! S’ok. I figured that would be the pic you used if you remembered. What about that one of all of us at brunch?! Surprised that’s not in there. Sad.

  44. Loved the video! I really has been an amazing year in the fandom. Thanks for letting us experience it all with you through your blog every day. All the ladies of LTR/LTT are so funny, witty and snarky 🙂

  45. First, thank you for providing me with definite proof, to show to my so-called friends that there are women of color over the age of 20 who like “Twilight.”

    Second, it looks like you had a blast over the past year and I hope you have 3 times as much fun over the next 200 days to “Eclipse.”

  46. aww i wanna see the shenanigans and the Tuck. *pout* i’ve been waiting all morning but it won’t come up on my computer. major fail… i think i need a tissue. this is awful. *sniffle* i can click and double click and refresh and wait and nothing appears.

    sad panda.

  47. So when Moon said “I hope you’re okay with your face showing for a second or two here and there” and I said “okay. just for a second” I didn’t realize she REALLY MEANT it would show for the whole entire video PLUS she’d include a clip of me singing Bon Jovi’s finest (ps.. i haven’t seen that vid- i need to see that vid!)
    but I guess that’s what I deserve for saying yesterday that she reads fan fic at church… (totally untrue. but would be awesome if she did)

    I cried. I laughed. I shrieked at the sight of The Tuck. I wished EastFriend & WestFriend were in there. I missed my (2) LA trips to see you (and all the others). I wanted bbq tacos. I totally didn’t care that our faces showed because I love that last picture so much. I realize HOW many pictures we haven’t’ posted on the blog yet (The pic of us in front of the dumpster banner? How could we forget!?) I missed lilcrazycow when I saw the pic of the 3 of us in the theater drinking diet cokes (Moon’s cousin- she was there when I visited and dealt with our late-night blogging & snickering while she tried to sleep) I.Loved.IT!

  48. Awesome. I cracked up at Animal Attack, and the little bottles, then I DIED at Eddie’s van!!! Great video, I LOVED it. You ladies totally rule, it’s true. AND there was a pic of Rob in the LB hat, thank you for that.

    If you ever come to Seattle, I am putting you in my hot car, getting on a ferry and we are driving our asses out to Forks. We will find that bar where they serve Bella Burgers and Vitamin R. I know you are vegetarians so we will just eat the buns….or just drink the beer. 🙂

    Oh, are you not up for a road trip? then we will go where ever is close to your hotel with Vitamin R on tap..

    Loves and hugs.
    lpb

  49. ZOMG!! I am crying…tears of joy, laughter…and just freakin’ good times!! I had totally forgotten about some of those pics/events. How I almost pee’d my pants when we “thought” we saw “him” at Sam’s show FakerPattz, that was so funny!
    Come to think of it…I have been with you all when all this cool stuff happens. I mean we were together at ComiCon when we saw PPLady, that in itself is enough to give thanks. Myth…Busted! I had ALMOST forgotten the baseballscene (jorts on the brain) but you just reminded me how hot Jasper was and then instantly cringed at the hideousness of the new wig. *fail*. Then….the Pot Brownie. Took me right back to my Spring Break visits to Panama City Beach where there are Corona Bikinis and Pot Leaf Bikinis a plenty. Goo Times….Goo Times! The last picture was so full of win. The only way it could have been better is if UC would have been on Moons shoulders and we heard a “hold on tight spider monkey”…just sayin’

    I ❤ you all so much!!!
    Looking forward to another year!!

  50. The video is funny. I´m kinda “new” to the Twilight universe but I´m always lurking around. Rob and his priceless (and gorgeous) presence, the interesting cast of Twilight.
    LMAO from 2:15 until the end of the video …hysterical.
    You guys are hilarious!
