The things we do for Twilight

Dear Twilight,

You’ve made me crazy. Yep. Crazy. There I was- a perfectly normal 25 year old girl with a slight love of subway sandwiches, Harry Potter, Facebook, kittens (okay I’m obsessed with kittens) and music. Suddenly, after being quite bored on a family vacation, I’m obsessed with vampires. VAMPIRES! And then after seeing a movie with a few friends in November (a movie that wasn’t actually that good, by the way) I’m suddenly obsessed with a BOY (who, coincidentally was IN Harry Potter.. so WIN for me!) I’m married! I love my husband! A lot! And this BOY is younger than the geeky cousin- EW!

I’ve done the craziest things for you:

-I took a 5 hour flight to visit a friend and then stood outside a HOT TOPIC to meet Ashley Greene and buy a DVD that I just ended up selling on ebay. Let me repeat. I went to Hot Topic (multiple times actually) And stood in a line. Until 5am (eastern time.) I forgot to mention above, I’m obsessed with sleep

-I went to a 100Monkey’s concert. And I’m a music snob. And they’re not good

-I talk DAILY to friends I made on the internet. How do I know you aren’t 54-year old men who play with themselves while looking at pics I text you, EastFriend & WestFriend? (uh, note to self, stop sending EastFriend & WestFriend half dressed phone pics of myself.. just in case)

I got picked up by Vickyb at the San Diego train station & we met Mrs.P for lunch downtown. I just trusted that Vickyb wasn’t gonna kill me.  And how did I know that Mrs.P’s teeny daughter wasn’t a cute ploy to get me to let down my guard so they could rob me of my millions?

-I went BY MYSELF to Philly to a Jewish-Southern fusion brunch place and met AmourPSU. First of all, what the freak is Jewish-Southern fusion? Do you think AmourPSU made it up and staged a brunch place so she could drug me, insert something into my brain and steal all my creative ideas?

-The other night I was at a loud, crowded bar with some friends. I could barely hear my friend Ray say, “That’s what she said” after everything my husband said (he says it so often I’ve changed it to: “That’s what Ray says”). But don’t worry, I heard the girl at the next table explain to her date how she likes the series “Twilight,” and I swung my head around so hard my neck muscles STILL hurt.  No one else noticed. And I wasn’t even the closest person to her.

twilightpartyOne day I was just minding my own business driving home when, going 45 m.p.h. I pass a road sign that I SWEAR says “Twilight Party 5/30.” I SWERVE into the parking lot and drive to the other entrance to see if my eyes deceived me or not. They did not. The mudshack pottery studio is having a Twilight Party on Saturday. What are they gonna do? Make clay figurines of Edward? How gay. Oh, and you know I’ll be there…

What happened? How did I, a perfectly sane girl who occasionally did crazy things like dress up like Moaning Myrtle for the Harry Potter opening movie night become the: meets internet friends in person without a second thought, stays up till 5am at a HOT TOPIC to meet a girl from a movie that wasn’t that good, looks awkward in public places, almost gets into accidents, makes a fool out of herself-type girl over a book ABOUT VAMPIRES…… Oh, I also have given up all hobbies, all real life friends and spend Friday nights at home…. all to run 2 blogs….

FML? or…no.. I love my life…

You’re worth it. Friends, vampires, Rob, the Internets, Twilight…. I ❤ you enough to go crazy for you

Love,
UnintendedChoice
*omg… I’m KNOWN by a fake name from a MUSE song..! ugh!

I love all my internet friends more than you’ll ever know. And EastFriend/WestFriend if you DO turn out to be old dudes, well, I think you’ll be the best old dude friends I’ll ever have… you can’t get rid of me!

The well-rounded Twilight Fan

Dear Twilight fandom,

This is the story of how to be a well-rounded Twilight fan.  It IS possible that your husbands, significant others, moms, dad, kids, etc. can be “proud” of you, despite your obsessing over “just a book about Vampires” (who has had someone in their life refer to it as that before? I have, I have!) Moon & I, through reading your letters and amazing emails, have discovered the key to maintaining a healthy, balanced life, while never really leaving the Twilight world.

By using the suggestions described by the following stories, we feel you will emerge a better, fuller, more whole, smarter, sexier, well-rounded person. (Or at least well-rounded in the 5 areas we consider to be most important in life: Music, Parties, Film, Fun and Art.)

Enjoy a snippet of each of these important life areas, brought to you by something Twilight related, below:

Music

Raise your hand if you’ve heard music related to the Twilight saga that sucks. ME. So you can imagine my surprise when one of our readers, Brodie-Ann, sent us “Twilight Wishes and Vampires Kisses” in the form of a song from her band Felinedown that not only DOESN’T suck but is ACTUALLY quite good! Here is her explanation of the song:

This song, Push, is based on New Moon from Bella’s perspective. I created it really as a gift for Stephanie – to thank her for Twilight and all our characters she has really inspired me both personally and as a song writer.

Go ahead, listen! And let Brodie-Ann know what you think in the comments!

Parties

Remember RhoJo and her amazing friends who created the amazing Twilight Drinking Game for a DVD release party that included instructions like: take a drink every time Bella stumbles, falls or stutters? Well, she sent us pictures of the amazing party she threw for her and her friends.

They all wore uniforms of course

The Edward action figure is kinda a slut…

Dear Edward,

I can hang with the fact that you’re a 108 year old vampire trapped inside the body of a beautiful, sexy, perfect 17-yr-old, but what I don’t get is this miniature version of you that’s EVERY WHERE these days. How do you do it!? I know you run fast… but you’re EVERY WHERE at ONCE!

Not to mention that no one seems to know what to call you. We’ve always just referred to you as the “Edward Cullen Doll” (or my ‘very own crappy Edward‘) but have also heard you called micro-Edward, little Edward or, our favorite, “Pocket Edward” (which of course was the creation of our dear friend, Lauren, from Lauren’s Bite). Regardless of what we call you, you seem kinda slutty. You’re spending a lot of time with a LOT of woman, and I’m getting a little jealous.

Stop it, k?
❤ UnintendedChoice

laurendollJust promise me you didn’t send any of the “other” girls a Valentine like the one you and Lauren made for me (in case you’re wondering if Eddie wrote that he’s depressed because

1) he’s stuck with Bella
2) I am married and
3) he was late with his v-tines greeting, all those things are true.

aCarla saw you at the hospital
miniedward4I was at the hospital this morning visiting my husband when I heard a page for Dr. Cullen to room 744.

I thought this can’t be Dr. Carlisle Cullen, what would he be doing here? I went down the hall and there stood Edward, I was in shock! I asked him what he and Dr. Cullen were doing here in Kansas and he said that they were passing through and stopped by to check up on an old patient of Dr. Cullen’s that was ill.

Edward and I walked around the hospital talking while Dr. Cullen tended to his patient and he didn’t mind if I took pictures. It was a great time and I wanted to share them. By the way, no pictures of my husband and Edward as my husband was asleep at the time, but Dr. Cullen checked on him and said that he was going to be fine. Carla

You took AJ & her friends to the beach near the Ohio University campus (AJ says she uses the term beach loosely, and I’m glad because I didn’t THINK there were “beaches” in Ohio!)

Unicorns and Edward sightings

Unicorn Spotted in Australia

I was at my local club  standing with my boyfriend (a non-Twilight lover who shamed me by falling asleep in the movie) when lo’ and behold, across the room my eyes met with one of the most amazing-looking gents I have ever seen! He looked exactly like Jasper Cullen/Hale (Jackson Rathbone). I turned to my boyfriend a squealed “oh my god that guy looks like Jasper,” and I think he was shaking his head as I ran off. The conversation I had with the unicorn is as follows:

ME: “Have you seen Twilight?”
Hot Stranger (HS): “Yeah of course!”
ME: “Oh my god! You look like Jasper, you know Jasper?”
HS: “Yeah I know all of the Cullens. He’s Alices boyfriend right? The one who is new to vegetarianism (chuckles)”
ME: (giddy and slightly red in the face with excitement): Yep that’s him!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!…. I like your vest”
HS: Bows and walks out of my life forever….

Looking back there are so many more questions I could have asked like: Did you see it with a girl? Have you read the books? Are you gay? All of these came to me hours later when my mind wasn’t running around a thousand miles an hour..

AA, did he really bow? Because that is awesome if he did…
