A Not-so-secret-admirer is in love with LTT

As a Valentine’s present to ourselves, Moon & I just had to share this letter we received that made our DAY- no- our WEEK!

Dear LTT, UC & Moon,

I have a confession. An obsession confession. And seeing as it is Valentine’s weekend and all, I figure I should come clean. LTT – I am majorly in love with you. I mean, like, bad.

It all started on a balmy summer afternoon way back in 2009 (switch to black and white and play old-timey music). I was doing normal things at work, like re-reading Midnight Sun, visiting all the links on Miss Meyer’s website, and cracking up at Rob/Claudia. Then I made a decision that would change my life forever: I thought it would be beyond fun and creepy to Google image search Renesmee. Yes – that’s what did it. That click right there led me down the rabbit hole from which I would never return. The horrifying image of that bronze-ringlet-ed baby caused me to literally spit my coffee all over my monitor (something which happens on a regular basis now), and as I cleaned the screen, lo and behold what did I unearth behind my coffee-saliva sprayings other than the lovely Letters to Twilight AKA the best part of my day!

I began reading entry after entry and quickly found the “My what a difference a year makes: Taylor Lautner then and now” timeline chart, and I was smitten! I sent it to all my Twilight loving friends! Then I saw the Holy Trinity “Evangelists” singing Steven Curtis Chapman and I knew I was home! I proceeded to read every single entry that had ever been written, starting with day one. I laughed, I cried, I laughed so hard I cried. And so it has been, every single day (switch back to color and modern-day music), I read the day’s entry and ALL the comments, yet I never comment. Why? Every single day I do this. But I’m not even signed up to comment…and it feels like I am hanging out with friends, they just don’t happen to know I am there. Kind of like what it will feel like when Chris Hansen throws me in jail and I am forced to live vicariously through letters from my friends on the outside. [UC Note: Thankfully, as of yesterday that is a moot point].

Anyway, what really motivated me to come out of the LTT closet was when I was minding my own business at work AKA relishing the fact that I was simultaneously reading about blonde Stewy, Eric “Feeny Fee-hee-hee-nay” Mathews, Rob’s pants, and JTT shout-outs, and a coworker walked by and looked at me and said, “Are you in love?” This really caught me off guard, as I am definitely not in love with any (real life) person. She said, “You just look really really happy…” Then, confused, I glanced again at the screen and thought YES! YES I guess I really am in love. I’m in love with LTT and all it’s amazing harem of people just like me and it’s probably time I let the wolf out of the bag and confess my true feelings.

How can you NOT love us?

I love you, LTT, UC and Moon!!! So what if I have re-read the same 4 books over and over for over a year (or 2)? So what if I get happy when it rains because it makes me feel like I am living in Forks for a day? So what if I can’t eat a hamburger patty without thinking about life behind bars? So what if when I mend a hem on my dress I am secretly wishing I was “mending a hem” on a certain someone’s pants? So what if I’m still slightly embarrassed that I am actually typing these words for all to see but I’m also relieved to finally get it out? So what if me and several other of my almost-30-year-old friends took up an entire row (and ate 4 giant buckets of popcorn…with refills) at the theater watching a certain movie November 20th? THAT’S NORMAL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

LTT, you are my true other half, my own personal brand of awesome. And I thank you. I thank you for not being too-cool-for-school and allowing us grown-ups to be the ridiculous fangirls (and fanFonts) we know we all are. In honor of my “coming out” I think I am going to throw a “No Longer Jailbait” party this weekend!

Love,

Your not-a-secret-anymore Admirer

After the jump, find out how YOU can grant us the best valentine’s day ever. Plus I have a Vtines gift for Moon! Continue reading

Breaking Down Swiftner aka we heart Taylor Lautner and Taylor Swift HARD!

taylorsvdaykingandqueen

How ridiculously perfect is this picture?! Seriously!

Dear LTT-ers and Robsteners,

We so get it now! After the pictures of the Taylors (aka Swiftner) came out this week and the ensuing letters I wrote to them UC and I fangirled out (it was mostly a lot of high pitched “oh-em-geeing) half the day about Swiftner and how much we loved them. I started watching the clips commenters posted in the letters to the Taylors post and I knew I had a new addiction. Here’s UC and I breaking it down…

The one where I “come out”
Moon:
I officially sound like the Swiftner version of a robsten fan*
UC hahahahahahha and i like it SO much more!
Moon Yes, it’s not nearly as annoying or annoying at ALL
UC RIGHT! just cute!
Moon dude ive SO watched like 2 videos of him at her concert in Chicago. Stop me
UC: hahahahahhahaha love it!
Moon: people are posting them in the comments. She sings 15 in the audience in front of Taylor and then comes to hug the folks where he’s sitting and when she hugs him and the crowd goes nuts. its SOOO embarrassing. im embarrassed for them. and then they do that lingering hand holding thing as she walks away. Swiftner lives folks! hahahaha
UC: awwwww!!!! sooo cute!!!!
Moon its super cute
UC dude.. that’s amazing. Send me the link to the video

Moon: OMG!!! HAHAHA its even more embarrassing from this other angle
UC: Watching! Awwww!
Moon SO CUTE!
UC he’s like “i love you” SOO cute! what if he sang? i’d die if he started singing along with her!
Moon: HAHAHAH they need to do a duet. I hope taylor has seen taylors crappy student video

Letters to Twilight in 10 words or less

Dear LTT-ers,

Just the other day I was talking to UC about how I wished I could just post two word letters or even three (go for the gold Moon!) because sometimes less is more especially when you see shiz like this:

Rob and Kristen spotted shopping in VINTAGE store

Rob and Kristen spotted shopping in VINTAGE store

Dear Rob and Kristen,

Be less predictable.

Love your pal,
moon

So I decided to summarize the following Twi-news, pictures and what have you in 10 words of less… can I do it and still be semi funny? Will you love me when I fail miserably?

Let’s see shall we?

Your faithful servant,
Moon

Take the cut to see if I can do it!

And the winners are…

Dear LTT/LTR Gals (and lost dudes)-

You all are the most creative, talented, generous and awesome-est people we know! UC and I have been blown away by the entries to our lil Twi-alentine’s contest. When we had the idea originally we had no clue what people would enter, if anything! But now all we can say is “WOW” because you all did NOT disappoint. After the contest closed UC and I met at Rob’s place behind closed doors  and had a jello wrestling match super top secret meeting to decide the winners. It was a tough job but someone had to do it!  So without further adieu the WINNERS!!!!!

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,
too hot for that flannel, dont ya think?

While you’re at it lose the beanie
and I’ll help you with those shoes..
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!
Gotta check ‘Letters to Rob’
and send this into the contest!
