I can't believe I have a Twilight blog…

Kristen Stewart Lovefest! November 7, 2009

Finally! I was feeling bad for taking so long on this Kstew Lovefest, but then all these articles came out this week which made me love her even more.  And THEN the press junket in LA came along last night and now there’s all sorts of interview videos out there that have only increased my love even more!  My Kstew love-tank is the fullest it’s ever been, therefore this is the perfect time to write all about how much I love her.  And this time around, I’m not saying a single mean thing.  Not one.  All love this time Kristen, I promise.  ALL. LOVE.

First, I want to share what her fellow cast members have been saying about her.  Vanity Fair has been releasing interviews from various cast members throughout the last couple of weeks, most of them ending with a “Describe the following people in one word” section.  Here are the words that Kristen’s peers chose for her:

 

Kellan Lutz: “Adventurous”

Peter Facinelli: “Sweet.”

Chaske Spencer: “Fighter.”

Kiowa Gordon: “Edgy.”

Alex Meraz: “Badass.”

 

Adventurous, sweet, fighter, edgy, and badass?  This sounds like my kind of girl!  In a recent video interview with Ben Lyons for E!, Billy Burke was asked whether or not he feels protective of little Kristen:  “No. She can handle herself.  I’m scared of her actually.”   Awesome.  And of course, we want to know what Rob has to say about her, right?  Right.  (Regardless of whether you are Team Robsten or Team Nonsten, you can’t deny that he probably knows her better than most.)  Some of my favorite quotes from him:

Look at those shoes!!

 

“Kristen doesn’t take any slack.  She sticks to her guns — and that’s difficult to do.”

 

“She’ll decide on someone a lot quicker. She has a lot more self-esteem than I do, so she’s like, ‘You’re an idiot and I don’t want to talk to you,’ and I’m like, ‘I’m an idiot too!’ So I’ll talk to an idiot for like three days before deciding.”  (Side note:  Hey Rob, if Kristen doesn’t talk to idiots, and she talks to you, then you couldn’t be an idiot, correct?  Except that I kind of feel like you’re an idiot for not realizing that.   J/K, idiot free!  No one is an idiot!  Unless, of course, Kristen says you are.)

 

“Kristen was very different from how I expected the girl who played Bella would be. I was kind of intimidated.”

 

“She’s a unique girl.  You really don’t meet many people like Kristen.”

 

When Rob talks about Kristen it makes me jealous that I’m not friends with her.  Lately I have had the extreme misfortune of dealing with some sensitive, passive-aggressive, fake-ass babies in the forms of grown women (coworkers), and Kristen sounds like the perfect antidote.

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.
