Caption This: KStew at the Oscars

Dear Kristen,

You looked amaazzzing at the Oscars. Like seriously girl- I am coveting your dress. I knew you had girlie in you. I knew you had a hairstylist on speed dial. I knew you could glam it up for one night and chit chat with Hollywood elite and pretend to like it. It was the Oscars after all!

I was struck, after looking through the Oscar galleries from the red carpet & after parties, with the desire to figure out what was going on while the photos were being taken. I mean- you got a picture with Evan Lysacek gold medalist male ice skater. Was that on a dare from Taylor? Did Rob text you and request a picture for his mom?

So I declare today “After Oscars Caption Party,” and I’m gonna have fun! Thanks for letting me!

Love,
UnintendedChoice

Okay Anjelica Houston is TOO MUCH FUN to only caption one picture:

After the jump, join the fun in a caption contest!!! Continue reading

Valentines Day Contest & Giveaways

Dear LTT readers,

Remember when we used to run contests and give out fake prizes? Like a 3 day, 2 night tropical vacation to Isle Esme with Edward? Isn’t it nice that after a year plus of running the blogs we can actually giveaway REALLY GREAT prizes from some of our favorite places!? Well, get excited because we’re about to giveaway the most amazing stuff to some very lucky contest winners from our favorites: Bella Bejeweled, Dwell Deep, Jeweled Ambrosia & Lobotome.

We’ve got TWO ways to enter: The contest here on LTT contest is Twilight-related and LTR’s contest is Rob-related. The prizes are slightly different, so make sure you check out BOTH contests! PLUS we have two contest going on in The Forum! Have you joined yet?

Here are the details:

Like this... only BETTER!

Contest: So here’s the deal… remember those conversations hearts that you get around Valentine’s Day? Yea, those chalky little hearts with little sayings on them? Yes, the same ones that Jacob gave Bella for Valentine’s Day in New Moon. Yes, the same ones they released as Twilight merch that “sparkle” and taste awful and have boring little Twilight things written on them? Same thing. Only we’re kicking it up a notch and asking YOU to design funny, hilarious, cute, naughty, just plain wrong, Twilight and Rob conversation hearts! Go wild, add sayings, making up something funny, add an image what would REAL (LTT/LTR) Rob/Twilight conversation hearts say? Only thing is it’s gotta fit on the heart!

Need a heart to get your started? Here’s a couple…

Don’t have a photo editing program? You can upload one of these hearts to this awesome site called Picnik and add text and save! SUPER easy!

Rules: Email in your entry by 11:59pm Friday night (2/13) EST to Letterstotwilight@gmail.com. General Twilight (non-Rob)-related hearts will be eligible for the prizes below. Enter as many times as you’d like. Contest is open to EVERYONE. Even if you live in Antarctica

Prizes:

JeweledAmbrosia1st Place

Jeweled Ambrosia: The first place winner is gonna make everyone jealous with this amazing necklace from Jeweled Ambrosia. You’ll probably remember us raving about Jeweled Ambrosia’s adorable vintage-inspired Twilight jewelery a few weeks ago. I squeed when I saw this necklace with a Twilight charm and red 14mm Swarovski cystal heart!
Make sure you hop on over to Jeweled Ambrosia to lust over her other amazing jewelry. I was over there yesterday and saw this great “Create-your-own Twilight inspired jewelry” option! AWESOME Valentines gift idea! (Plus, mention LTT/LTR at checkout for FREE shipping!)

Dwell Deep2nd Place

Dwell Deep: Second place prize is a print of the amazing painting UC’s friend Sam from Dwell Deep did called “Loss or Lost.” We shared Sam’s art with you just last week and mentioned this painting was inspired by the Lykke Li song from the New Moon  soundtrack. In this print, a girl curls up in a nest of twigs, safe but lost. The text reads, “A silence… and a numb feeling to hide the pain.”
The image measures 7″ x 7″ centered on a white 8.5″ x 11″ sheet of heavy weighted paper. All of Sam’s drawings, paintings and crafts are really amazing, but we especially love this Twilight-inspired one! Plus this week in Sam’s Etsy shop, she has this print on sale for $10! (Originally $15!) You can check it out here (Want another chance to win this print!? We’re giving another one away in Rob’s Flat on the forum in the daily chat!)

3rd Place

Lobotome: The 3rd place winner will take home (aka we will mail you) our favorite notepad in the history of notepads: The “Bite Me” Notepad! You’ll probably remember the first time we talked about this Notepad when we gushed over it like crazy people, but literally we’ve had one of these notepads in our handbags every since we first got them! Plus we have a cute little image on our sidebar that glares at you every day, tempting you to buy one!

Bite Me Edward Notepad

If you’re looking for an affordable, amazing gift any Twilight lover would LOVE, pick up one (or many) of these Notepads. Hop on over to “Specials” on her webpage to check them out. Plus if you’re a part of the “Big Loser” weight-loss group on the Forum, we’re giving away Lobotome’s “FIT ME” healthy living notepad over there! Check out the details on THAT contest!

Seriously, we weren’t jokin about GREAT prizes, were we? (Fine- who are we kidding- a vaca to Isle Esme with a headboard breaking man is MUCH better!) So enter NOW and make sure to check out the contests over on LTR and The Forum!

Love,
UC & Moon

Imma enter a Twilight contest

Dear country music lovers, Twilight fans, lovers of contests & closet rappers,

Who can forget the night of September 13, 2009 when we all crowded around our TVs in fear of what Rob would show up wearing, wondering if Ash would have a nip slip on the red carpet, pondering if Kristen’s hair could possible look any worse than at ComicCon and hoping that Taylor wouldn’t charm us so much that we really consider moving to Georgia? And then, our hearts skipped a couple beats as said underage boy in a man’s suit stepped on stage and this happened:

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Congrats Kanye, you’ve again proved to be a douche.

But like everything in pop-culture, Kanye’s a-hole move quickly became a meme and provided us with countless LOLs as “KanyeGate” took over the radio, TV, news reports and interwebs.  It all came to a head when I discovered the Kanye Gate tumblr account, which, of course, had Twilight/Kanye mashups!

Seriously? Photoshopping a little Kanye image with Twilight-related stuff? That looks like SO much fun & RIGHT up my alley. So I gave it a shot (after the jump) Continue reading

Things that happen to me that make me think Twilight may be too big a part of my life

Dear Twilight,

It’s 12:18 am. I did approximately 4.5 hours of work today at my job although I was there for 8 hours and 15 minutes. The rest of the time I responded to blog emails, approved comments, responded to comments, lurked on the forum, played around on twitter, read through my google reader, sent a few emails to my pals: The Bitchin’ Bloggers, chatted with Moon on gchat about how Rob is clearly going to have a sexless summer- it was just another day at the office. I grabbed a quick bite to eat at my grandparent’s house where I kept my cell on vibrate. When I got out to my car I had a missed call and 2 texts from Moon. Plus a bajillion twitter updates. I called Moon immediately & from the moment she said hello until this very moment at 12:24 am, I have not stopped working on my “blog about vampires.” Just a normal Wednesday, or maybe today should go on the:

List of things that happen to me that make me think Twilight may be too big a part of my  life:

  • I got 6 birthday cards this year and 4 of them had Robert Pattinson’s face on them
  • My cousin, who is reading the books for the first time (yep- there are still virgins out there), texts me after she finishes every major section of a book and I call her immediately, making her rehash every feeling and emotion she is going through at that very moment, just so I can live vicariously through her first time. I miss my Twi-virginity so much
  • Someone gave me a book about Rob Pattinson and encouraged me “not to read it all in one sitting” (little do they know I read the entire thing in 30 minutes the day it was released at Barnes & Noble)
  • When I got my friendly monthly visitor in my white pajama pants, while going commando, instead of freaking out & looking around for the closest Tide detergent stick, I thought, “What was Stephanie Meyer’s answer for what Edward does when Bella gets her period again?”
  • I can’t even get my husband to respond to my e-mail, yet Ted C. from E!Online has written me 3 times in the last 2 days.
  • I write a blog about vampires that, for some reason, more people than I knew existed in the world read every day. Yesterday I only had 21 views on my personal blog.
  • When discussing plans for a Twilight DVD ‘girls-night-in’ night over e-mail with some real life friends, one of the RL friend’s coworkers walks into her cube. She invites her to join us for the movie and she says, “Wait, UnintendedChoice is going to be there?” Someone actually called me UnintendedChoice. In my real life.
  • My grandmother cuts out articles from the newspaper about Twilight and mails them to me
  • People I haven’t talked to for years who should have no idea that I run this blog write on my Facebook wall, “I just wanted to let you know I started Twilight and I love it!” (Do they think I wrote it!?)
    secret msg about buttcrack santa
  • I cropped a fannypack onto a man I never met (OH wait, that was Moon.. check it here)
    secret msg about buttcrack santa
  • If I haven’t seen a friend in a week or two, the first question out of their mouth is not, “How have you been,” but it’s, “How is living in the Twilight world?”
    secret msg about buttcrack santa
  • One of my best friends e-mailed me the other day and said “I feel like you have two lives. Real life UC & virtual life UC. I miss real life UC”
    secret msg about buttcrack santa
  • When I get a company e-mail reminding me the IT guy is coming around to everyone’s office & doing geeky crap to our computers & I go to clear my history, I notice that it’s full of phrases like:

“Rob Pattinson Bite Baby” and “Rob Pattinson lobster”

  • Because of that same IT guy I deleted my temporary files & download folder yesterday. It took 12 minutes. As I saw the file names zip past my eyes as they flew into the recycle bin, I realized not one was work-related.
  • I accidentally start everything, from emails, to facebook wall posts, to work coorespondance, to post-it notes with “To do’s” for my husband, to blogs on my personal blog, to my rent checks, with Dear ___________ and sign it Love, UnintendedChoice. I, alone, am keeping the “white out” product on the market.
I may also be obssessed with this fact that I found out there used to be a petition to have TomStu play Edward. TOMSTU

I may also be obssessed with this fact that I found out there used to be a petition to have TomStu play Edward. TOMSTU

What should I do? Pull back my involvement? Or do I just suck it up and say, “That’s Normal” I may or may not like Twilight

Love,
UnintendedChoice

PS: Add to list “The fact that I know who the hell TomStu is”

Okay confession time… what has happened to you to make you say… allright.. maybe I’m not that normal. (But oh! You are! That’s Normal)

Don’t forget to submit us some TwiPorn for our Porn-off with the Twilight Sisterhood

A million thanks to Calliope because without her, today’s post would have been a poll entitled “Who is hotter? Rob or Buttcrack Santa?”

Ready, set Bake-off!

Dear LTT darlings & unicorns,

On Friday we wrote a letter about the fake-sorority we’re starting. We had you suggest names for this sorta, kinda sorority, and DIED of laughter at the hilarious things you came up with.  We narrowed down our favs & want you to help us decide in a poll:

Thanks to ’86 rabbit, Jena, MegO and Proselyte3 for your suggestions! We both have a favorite, but we won’t say unless our choices win!

Oh, but there’s MORE. Much more. Another sorority THREATENED us! GASP. Check it after the cut Continue reading

Poems – write us your best “Roses are red…” Twilight related poem

01 all Twilight series characters
Winner:  Paige and Christina

Poem from KStew to her weed
Roses are red,
you are my green.
When I don’t smoke you,
I get bitchy and mean.

In the morning,
when I wake.
I fill my bowl,
and a hit I take.
Oregano and I sit,
on the steps outside.
We smoke until,
we are flying high.

I love you like,
girls love RPattz.
And even a little more,
than my own cats.

People tell me that,
I really should stop.
When they say this,
I tell them to stfu !

02 Rob
Winner: FutureMrsP

Roses are red
Violets are blue
Everyone at letters to Rob
Wants to spend V-day with you
We will leave our husbands
And our children too
Just to spend one night with you
It’s really not a lot to ask
We will make worth your while
Trying out new things
That is guaranteed to make you smile
So whether you want naughty, nice
Or even lots of spice
We promise to make it
The best day of your life

03. Misc. (Stephenie, Forks, fangirls, whatever your heart desires)
Winner: Melissa

Of course it wasn’t a roofie
that I slipped into your drink…
You’re right it’s getting hot in here,

While you’re at it lose the beanie

Put on your fave Morrissey album
and I’ll get you some more booze.

Better take off those dirty jeans,
& oh, those boxers are the bomb!
Yeah I’ll undo those handcuffs, Rob,
first just let me phone my Mom..

Hey while I’m at it let me log on..
Oh, Spunk Ransom, you’re the best!
