Not alright with this New Moon Hair & Makeup Dept.

if I was one of these girls or Jackson, I'd be crying openly

Dear New Moon Hair/Wig people-

I’ve never been more sad in my life.

This is just NOT alright. I am seriously sad and may think of boycotting you for making Jacksper look this ridiculous. His hair is poofy and NOT CUTE. What did you do wash and set it with sponge curlers ala 5th grade? I mean it must take a lot of work to take a normally great looking guy and make him look like a poodle at the Westminster Dog Show. In fact I think that’s where you must be going to get all the wigs that were in Twilight and now New Moon. Jacob’s half up, half down wig makes him look like a Native American My Little Pony. All he’s missing are the bejeweled eyes.

If this is the hair Jasper has when he kicks butt and draws blood at Bella’s birthday party someone will have to hold me in my seat because I may not be able to help myself. I need a bad ass Jasper taking a swipe at Bella and not some fancy boy with Shirley Temple hair.

I have no more to say about this. I’m going to act as if this never happened. I have my eye on you Wig wranglers!

The end.

PPS UC, i ❤ you and would never give you poodle hair if I was a hair stylist

We may or may not be excited for New Moon

He works hard for the money... so hard for the money so you better treat him right!

Caution: Extreme fangirl letter!

Dear Chris Weitz,

THIS IS WHY WE DO THIS! We blog for moments like today when we saw the ET promo videos for New Moon. Because we LOVE THIS SAGA and THIS is what it’s all about! (Believe it or not, THIS is what we blog for! Not forums, Not comments, Not haters, Not complainers but THIS!) It’s about The Characters! The Story! The Angst!

Is it possible that our fasting and prayers have worked? And that New Moon is going to meet or, gasp, SURPASS our expectations!? (Because if so, please let us know so we can pack a defibrillator to bring with us on opening night!)

Always the Jacob never the Edward

Always the Jacob never the Edward

Could we actually walk away from the theater saying less about how hot Rob was and say more things like “Remember that moment, after Edward leaves, when, in the book it’s 4 blank pages? Wasn’t what Chris did visually to represent that emptiness just perfect?”

And will this theme ring true throughout the whole film:

Time passes. Even when it seems impossible. Even when each tick of the second hand aches like the pulse of blood behind a bruise. It passes unevenly, in strange lurches and dragging lulls, but pass it does. Even for me.

Edward WHO?

Edward WHO?

Will we feel that pain?

And, OMG, will we actually, seriously contemplate TEAM JACOB?? Because honestly (and don’t tell Rob this) we ARE considering it. (And if we wouldn’t get thrown in jail for thinking it out loud, we’d be considering Taylor too! (we’re still thinking it.. despite the risks- did you SEE that tight thermal he was wearing? GOOD CALL CHRIS!!))

Just from those quick clips, Moon almost broke a window in her office from her freak out. She slapped her desk and yelled stuff out loud. And UC felt JUST like Glow Worm (ya know, the affectionate name we gave the craziest Twilight

Repeat it with me... he is 17... he is 17!

Repeat it with me... he is 17... he is 17!

fan we’ve ever seen. No, we won’t tell you who she is.. it’s too mean). She gasped.. she jumped.. her eyes were wide! She squeed so loud that her husband ran in to find out what was wrong.. and all she said was… JACOB!

And pure WIN during the part when Jacob told Bella he wasn’t giving up- he was wearing a pretty half-ponytail! We want to comb his hair with our “My Little Pony” combs!

This is when we can’t keep it contained- the Fangirl in both of us. There’s nothing we can do to stop it. We can try to pretend all day long that we’re too cool for freak outs.  We can write little sarcastic, snarky blogs, but at the end of the day, when it comes down to it- we’re as nerdy about it as 14 year old girls. And we don’t care anymore. We’re outting ourselves.

We’re gonna let the wild, out of control, Glow Worm-style anticipation begin! We’re gonna stop this “I may or may not like Twilight” shit… We LIKE it. We LOVE it. And That’s Normal

Cannot FREAKIN’ wait for November 20th,

Celebrate Good Times, COME ON!

Dear LTT gals and lads,

Just like KC and the Sunshine Band sang it’s time for a Celebration! Just the other night we had this conversation…

Moon: I just want to hug all these people [our readers] and be like you know what? You’re pretty cool. I can be having a shitty day, working for people who suck and clients who hate me, but I know somewhere there’s someone reading the blog and THEY like me! Very gushy I know, and maybe a tad drunk, but still gushyand NORMAL
UC: and I feel the same way
Moon: “Gushy” is one of my favorite terms because though I come off as a tough bitch on the exterior to most people, inside I am a truly and deeply sentimental person. Probably almost to a fault, but it’s true, and I can’t deny it- I love to gush.

Today we’re gushing because in our wildest imagination, 4 months ago on December 8th, 2008, we never imagined we’d be HERE with you all, over 500,000 views and 30,000+ comments later! Whew!

However large these blogs end up getting, we hope that one thing remains the same- that you feel personally connected to us and the other readers here, because if nothing else we want this to be a personal experience (albeit a funny one!) because Stephenie Meyer’s books are exactly that- a truly personal look at love and relationships. We can only hope that we convey one ounce of that to you all.

Happy FOUR MONTH anniversary to us! After the jump you can see ours and some of our very own commenters hand-picked favorite posts from the past 4 months.

We love you all and look forward to the next 4,
themoonisdown and UnintendedChoice

Our Favorite LTT Posts…

Moon and UC’s fave’s

kellanbloodWe’re gonna have to go old school with the very first post EVER “The Purpose Driven Vampire” I mean HELLO I (moon) thought of and wrote the entire post in my head while using the potty! TMI? That’s NORMAL! And it’s where the whole Kellan/youth group story line comes from…

(12/08/08)
The Purpose Driven Vampire

Here are some of the letter highlights:

“Last night after watching the Vanity Fair outtakes video, I decided I hadn’t wasted enough time so why not read all TWELVE interviews? Then I got to yours. And I read that your favorite book is “The Purpose Driven Life” … so that got me to thinking you chose this for two reasons…” Read letter here!

Another Moon/UC Favorite:

Besides quoting the Disney Pocahontas song UC pleads to be cast as Emily and then genius strikes and asks to be cast as Tanya instead in New Moon. So much win in that one. We still laugh reading it.

(01/27/09)
new-moon-cover1I Can Paint With All The Colors of the Wind

Here are some of the letter highlights:

“Hello. My name is UnintendedChoice, and I wanted to introduce myself because I am coming to visit you really soon. Actually, it’s a good idea for us to become bff’s because you’ll be seeing a lot of me in the upcoming months, starting on Sunday, February 8, from 9am-12pm at the Second Ave Studios.

You see, I have what we call an acute fondness for Robert Pattinson (not to mention a sorta unhealthy obsession of looking at this picture of Taylor Lautner)…” Read letter here!

Monday Funnies, Twilight saga in 16 frames

(In an effort to bring back Monday Funnies I’ve found some comics by Lucy Kinsley to help lighten the mood… cause let’s face it most Monday’s SUCK and who couldn’t use a few laughs to start off the week? So without further adieu…)

Dear LTT gals and guys (yes we have a few Unicorns around these parts)

Have you ever tried to explain the Twilight saga to a super cynical “it’s a story about teen vampires” person or even a friend and somewhere around “Yea he doesn’t come to school on sunny days and she’s all ‘he hates me’ and then he shows her his skin and he sparkles like diamonds in the sun light…” you think, oh crap what am I really reading here? Then this comic should make you LOL just because of the absurdity of it all… then you can tell your friend TRUST ME, JUST READ IT!!

I especially love how she NAILS Breaking Dawn and Jacob as the Werewolf!

Enjoy and God Speed Friday!

2nd Hand Embarrassed – Jacob/Renesmee

Dear Stephenie Meyer-

I’ve always been a little weirded out with the whole Jacob/Renesmee imprinting scenario, never mind how I can NEVER spell “Renesmee” correctly. But that’s a different post for another day. Back to Jacob and Renesmee… seriously though I understand it’s not like a sick-o gross pedi thing and I get that it totally adds another wrinkle to the storyline that make the future possibilities OH SO interesting but STILL.

We’ve all been there, we’ve convinced a friend to read the Twilight saga and they’re WAY into it, then they get to Breaking Dawn and you inevitably get the text late at night that says “JACOB IMPRINTED ON RENESMEE?? WTF!?” And then you have to explain yes, a 17 yr old boy is oddly “in love” with Edward and Bella’s baby.   UH YEA. I find the “I’m unexplainably drawn to love/protect/obsess/someday marry” a baby storyline super weird.com. And bordering on some Dateline NBC shiz.

So when I saw this fanmade video I knew it was gonna be some whacky stuff and it did NOT disappoint.

Please Stephenie, write the Jacob/Renesmee story so I can wash these bad memories out of my brain!

Mildly creeped out…

Worlfpack pride!

Phase me baby

Phase me baby

Dear Wolves-

Shhhhh what I’m about to tell you is TOP SECRET!! Ok, ready?

I’m having second thoughts…

I feel like a traitor for saying this around these parts… but for the first time I think I get it! After the photos of the wolfpack came out this week I can say I understand what all the fuss is about with Team Jacob. Only I want to call it Team Wolves! You boys are smoking hot and every kind of WIN I can think of. It got me thinking ‘wow, the Cullens seem kinda Pansy-ish all of a sudden and maybe the Wolves really could take them in a fight!’ I know!! I know, don’t spread it around but you’re totally making me have second thoughts.

I also gotta say that this is the first time I’ve felt really excited about New Moon after seeing you guys I was like let’s get this OOONNNN and I mentally started picking out songs in my head for the wolfpack and when that happens I KNOW I’m interested! While driving to work “Woman” by Wolfmother came on and all I could see was Jacob shredding on a motorcycle in a hot leather jacket!

RED HOT vs ICE COLD

RED HOT vs ICE COLD

I’ll always be Team Edward in the end but for Bella to be able to move on we needed some kind of convincing and boy, did we ever just get it. Now, I feel like this is totally possible. These guys are showing up ready to DO WORK SON! (name that quote). Now with hunky, hot, do-able Wolves this is easier to swallow and is already making me itch to pull out New Moon and Eclipse and read them again right now, just to imagine you boys as those characters. With you Wolves the fights in Eclipse are completely plausible now and I’m DYING to see how this all turns out.

talk nerdy to me, wolf on the right!!

talk nerdy to me, wolf on the right!!

I was talking to good pal Lula about how you guys are hot red blooded American MEN, real men and how this makes us feel like we’re cheating on Edward. I feel a little naughty and I like it! I just can’t help myself now. No need for Team Switzerland and we get Team Jacob finally but ef all that noise we wanna call it TEAM WOLVES, stand up and declare yourselves folks!

BIG UPS to casting, Chris Weitz, the PA, WHOEVER it was that made THIS happen I can totally see it now.

I feel the trembling, would you please phase me?

Stuff my guy says about Twilight

Dear Twilight,

Over at LTR, we post about the funny things our guys say about Rob.  Well, my husband randomly said two hilarious things yesterday about YOU.

(Mr. D thinks I’m rediculous for loving Twilight, loving Rob and blogging obsessively about it. I often try to convince him I am awesome and not the crazy fan-girl he thinks I am)

Me: Some of the readers on the site think I should do stand up.
Mr. D: Oh, the same people who believe in vampires?

_______________________________________________________

(Back when I knew nothing about the Twilight movie (I was SUCH a fan of the books that I refused to read/listen to/watch anything movie-related because I was so sure it would suck. How I regret all that time I could’ve spend loving Rob) I got the soundtrack- not knowing it was Rob singing two songs. I thought it was Ray LaMontagne)

Me: (while listening to Sirius radio) Oh- turn it up. It’s Ray LaMontagne. I love him
Mr. D: You just like him because of that guy.
Me: Nuh uh. I’ve liked him for forever. Anyway, what guy are you talking about? What’s his name?
Mr. D: Jake. From your blog “LettersToJake”

Love,
UnintendedChoice
