The Reluctant Twilighter

I can't believe I have a Twilight blog…

I Got A Fever… September 19, 2009

 

And the only prescription… is MORE NEW MOON!*

 

This morning, I bought nine tickets (for me and my Twilight army) for the midnight premiere on November 19th.  Exactly from two months from now, I will be in line at my nearest 21 and over (no annoying preteen girls!) movie theater, impatiently waiting with my friends for this movie. This movie that, now more than ever, I still faithfully believe is going to be so much better than the crapfest that was Twilight.

 

Pair that with the new trailer that came out last week, which was soooo good.  So good that my older brother texted me this: “K, at least New Moon has more action and less emo pouting.  And for once the werewolves don’t look stupid.”  So good that every time I watch it I still get goosebumps.  EVERY. TIME.

 

PLUS the release of Death Cab For Cutie’s single (which I actually think is kind of boring, sorry boys), AND rumors of a full track list being released by Summit any day now and…

 

I’ve. got. it. BAD.

 

How do I cope when I’m growing this impatient?  We still have two more months!  I’m guessing at some point more and more clips and interviews will start popping up, which will help a little I suppose.  But until then, I’m lost!  My tickets are bought and my soundtrack is pre-ordered… what else is a girl to do?  Somebody help me!

 

I don’t really know what else to say right now.  I’m just venting, I guess.  Perhaps I’ll grab New Moon off my bookshelf and finally dive in again.  We’ll see if that will quench my thirst for now…

P.S. Did everybody see that Rob did a guest tweet on Peter Facinelli’s Twitter account?  It made me more than a little happy.  Basically, I was grinning like an idiot all day yesterday.  Take a look:

Rob's Tweet

P.P.S. Did anyone else think that kid intern from The Office this week kind of  looked like a baby Taylor?  Oh, really? No?  It’s just me?  Oh.  Okay.  PARKOUR!

 

*Sorry for the cowbell reference.  I usually hate it since it’s been so overdone, but I can’t deny, it is a crowd-pleaser.

Quick Recap September 14, 2009

Yesterday was a big day.  I would love to go into major detail right now, but I’m super-tired so here’s what I can say right now:

Fact: Kristen looked beautiful.   I loved her hair and her dress.

Fact: Ashley Greene also looked beautiful. I loved her hair and her dress too.

Fact: Everyone else I know thought Ashley looked beautiful too. I don’t know what the folks over at Entertainment Weekly were smoking when they put her on their worst dressed list… why E.W.? WHY?  Usually I’m on your side on everything, but not today.  YOU HAVE FAILED ME.

Fact: Muse kicked ass.  I can’t wait for the new album.

Fact: Beyonce wins MVP of the night. That girl’s got everything.

Fact: Watching the New Moon trailer on a big screen TV is way better than on my laptop. I got goosebumps either way.

Fact: Today is my sister’s birthday!!!   Happy Birthday Sister!!!  Thank you for being one of my 3 regular readers!

Fact: November 20th is TOO FAR AWAY!!!!

Be back soon!!

 

Big Time Stuff September 12, 2009

I remembered that this blog came about originally because I used to email a friend with all the latest and greatest Twilight news.  She was a busy lady, who still is, so I feel the need today to make sure everyone is well-informed on the events of this weekend.  Big time stuff coming up.

First, the Video Music Awards is airing on Sunday night on MTV.  This. is. big.  BIG! TIME! STUFF!  Ashley Greene will be fashion correspondent on the red carpet.  Muse will be performing a song from their new album.  (As we all know, Muse is one of Stephenie Meyer’s favorite bands who inspired her while she was writing the Twilight series.  Plus, they kick ass.)  Death Cab for Cutie will be premiering their song, “Meet Me On The Equinox” on MTV.com.  Why does this matter to me, you ask?  Because this song was written exclusively for the New Moon soundtrack!  These Northwest boys apparently LOVE Twilight…well, not really I don’t think.  But they were kind enough to help Chris Weitz out and make a song.  Looks like the entire soundtrack is going to be pretty awesome, I heard Bon Iver is contributing as well.  I can’t wait.  BTW, you can already pre-order the soundtrack.  Done and done.

Hometown Heroes!!

Hometown Heroes!!

Furthermore, on this same awards show, Rob, Kristen, and Taylor will be presenting a third New Moon trailer.  A trailer that leaked onto the internet today but was snatched up by Summit before I had a chance to watch it.  Now I want to take this time to talk to everyone about a situation that could possibly arise on Sunday night.  Last year, the VMA’s were hosted by a Mr. Russell Brand.  His hosting did not go over very well, both in the Twilight world and in the regular, non-Twilight one (does such a world exist?) as well.  This is because he made some not-so-nice jokes about the Jonas brothers and their purity rings, called George Bush a retarded cowboy, and much more devastating, interrupted the cast of Twilight while they were trying to introduce a performance by Paramore.  He jumped in with his crazy antics, completely cutting off Rob’s lines, not allowing him to speak at all.  Thus causing chaos in the Twilight world.  War was declared on poor Russell and I’m actually pretty surprised that they asked him to come back this year.  Pleasantly surprised, that is.  I love Russell Brand.  I think he is hilarious.  I read his book, it was really interesting.  I watched his comedy special, and I laughed HARD.  He has a great website with lots of funny videos and posts.  (JUST ADDED! Go check out his website! Today he posted a video today where he sings a little song to a picture of Rob!) Now, there is a possibility that Russell could F things up again, and I hope that if that happens you all can forgive him.  He really means well, he just has a problem controlling himself sometimes.  So give him a break, okay?  The best we can hope for is that they chain him up backstage when it’s time for the Twilight kids to do their thing.  At the very least, turn off his mic when the trailer starts.

Give him a chance.  He's actually quite nice.

Give him a chance. He's actually quite nice.

Another important event this weekend is Bella’s birthday, (Sunday, September 13th) which means Stephenie Meyer Day in Forks!  The real town of Forks has chosen this day each year to honor Stephenie and all the attention that her books have brought to their little town.  Exciting activities include: a tour of Forks High School, a character look-alike contest, a car-decorating contest, a bonfire at First Beach, and cake!!  WOOT!  WOOT!  Try not to go too crazy, kids.

Let's get this party started!

Let's get this party started!

Even if you can’t make it to Forks, at least do a little something for Bella on her birthday.  Sing a birthday song, eat a cupcake, whatever you gotta do.  The first time I ever went to Forks and La Push was a year ago, on the day after Stephenie Meyer Day.  The entire town was still decorated for Bella’s birthday.   Banners and balloons in every store window.  I was so embarrassed to be there and declared it the nerdiest thing I had ever done.  Little did I know that a year later I’d be doing this…

Anyways, I hope you all enjoy the events of this weekend, I know for sure I will!

 

Twilight in the Workplace June 24, 2009

Hello again!  Sorry for the long time between posts, it’s been an unusually rough week at work.  Amidst all the hustle and bustle though, Twilight still crept its way into the workplace over and over.  On my drive home today I was struck with the realization of how often Twilight and Twilight-related subjects are discussed, even in a busy doctor’s office. 

 

A good friend came to stay at my house for a night this weekend.  Within the first five minutes of her arrival, I confessed to her that I had started a Twilight blog.  She still wanted to be my friend, so we went out to dinner.  While we were waiting to be called to our table, we went to the bookstore next door.  We laughed at the amusing Twilight merchandise.  We spent the majority of dinner discussing Twilight (very philosophical stuff, I assure you.)  After coming home for the night, we then watched some of the extras on the Twilight DVD.  I actually made my mom drive over to give me back my copy so we could watch it.  My point is, all of this seems perfectly normal to me.  This is where I expect Twilight to show up in my life.  But at work?  Really?  Let me explain what I’m talking about…

 

-3 different people rushed into my office this week on seperate occasions to ask me about the Robert Pattinson/Kristen Stewart rumors.  “But I saw the cover of OK! magazine!  They said it’s official!!”  “Don’t believe any of that.   There have been no official announcements.  I will announce to you if they actually announce anything, I promise.”  (For some reason these magazines have not looked up the definition of official.  I think they’re confused about what exactly it means.) 

 

-My boss needed to borrow Eclipse because she’s reading the series again.  That led to a discussion of which books were our favorites, which led to her explaining she liked the ones that have more Quileute interactions, which led to me glaring at her saying, “Oh yeah, I forgot.  You’re Team Jacob.”  (She’s dead to me now.)

 

-The clinice nurse needed to borrow my copy of New Moon because her mom is almost finished with Twilight.  Let me point out that her mother is an elderly Armenian woman.   I think that’s funny. 

 

-One of our doctors told me that she was watching “one of those entertainment news shows” and they had a feature discussing how Twilight has influenced fashion.  She saw the styles and immediately thought they all looked like me!  (I took it as a compliment, but I’m not sure if she meant it to be one.)

 

-A different doctor recently went on vacation and brought back a box of those Sweethearts with the Twilight sayings on them for me.  She’s never read Twilight, but she saw the picture of Edward on the box and “just had to get them for me.”  Which was so sweet of her, because I would never, EVER walk up to a counter with a box of Twilight Sweethearts.  That’s just too embarrassing for words.  I can’t imagine the look she must of gotten from the cashier; a successful, intelligent,  middle-aged woman buying candy with a picture of a sexy vampire on the box.  Ha!

 

-Every once in awhile we’ll get a patient who walks through our doors with one of the books (or a Forks shirt) and I just about go crazy.  Somehow I manage NOT to jump over the counter and squeal at them like a little girl, but the temptation is definitely there.  Instead I run through the halls, squealing to anyone that will listen, “Guys!  Guys!  Did you see!?!?!  Did you see that girl who had an Edward Cullen totebag?!?!  Did anyone ask her which book is her favorite??”

 

-The Monday after the MTV Movie Awards aired the New Moon trailer, there were quite a few people who either didn’t realize a trailer was going to be shown or had forgotten.  Either way, they hadn’t seen it yet and I ended up reenacting the trailer for them in the break room quite a few times throughout the week.  I don’t want to brag, but I must say I got pretty good at it.

 

-It is understood throughout the clinic that when “my boyfriend” is discussed, we’re talking about Rob.  Even the losers who haven’t jumped on the bandwagon (yet) know.  They’ve been thoroughly educated on this matter.  “Oh, I saw your boyfriend on TV last night…”  I love it.

 

In all seriousness, I think Twilight has actually helped us to become a closer group of coworkers, and I’m forever grateful to Stephenie Meyer for that.  There are people at work that I didn’t think I really had anything in common with, but now I can gush over Edward or discuss imprinting with them.  I’m so happy that I don’t have to leave my obsession at home when I come to work every day!  

 

Speaking of work, it’s going to be another hectic day tomorrow, full of Robsten debates and New Moon countdowns (oh, and helping patients I suppose) so I must head for bed now.  Thanks for visiting!!
