Get your contest on!

dvdcoverDear LTR/LTT Gals-

So we know all about the DVD preorders and what all those other stores are doing to celebrate in fact we’re in final countdown here including our OWN itinerary and tips for throwing a twi-party… but did you know WalMart is throwing their own Twilight release parties?! Well, they are so now you can celebrate with fellow Twi-hards, win contests, get your DVD AND buy toliet paper all at the same time! How thoughtful!

In honor of these fun parties, we’re giving away one of the Twilight Fun-Packs just like the one you COULD win if you go to a midnight release party, courtesy of Walmart! Now you know how we live to talk on these blogs… so in honor of our theme song video today, if you wanna win jump to the comments and share with us a song that makes you think of Twilight (doesn’t need to be on the Soundtrack) and YOU COULD WIN! We’ll announce a winner Tuesday.

Good luck and get to commenting!

The one where Heather meets Rob

Dear Rob,

I often think about how I will meet you someday. I’ve even starting compiling a list of what TO DO and what NOT to do on that magical day (for example, I will not mention Twilight even once nor the fact that I run a blog about you. That will be my little secret. But I will ask for a cigarette and then we will smoke together)

For the past few weeks Moon & I have had 3 virtually “unseen” pictures of you on our computers-we’ve hoarded them like they were the crown jewels or something- only showing them to the friends we love best. We felt pretty special that they were sent to us- one of our wonderful readers, Heather, sent us her first-hand account of meeting you (AND WE ARE SO JEALOUS) and the pictures along with it. She has graciously agreed for us to share her story on the blog, and we have begrudgingly agreed to allow other people access to these pictures, although now we’ll feel much less special.

Can’t wait until I have my very own pictures of you and I to hoard,
UnintendedChoice xo

My story of how I met Robert Pattinson

I was online browsing various sites for Twilight news, and I saw a contest on Ryan Seacrest’s website to win a trip to L.A. for the Twilight premiere. The contest was scheduled to end on Friday November 14th and it was Thursday November 13th. I decided what the heck. Why not enter it, knowing full and well that I wouldn’t win it. I never win anything.

So I filled out the form and submitted it. I have a horrible internet connection and had to fill out and submit the form several times before it finally went through. (Thank God I am persistent) I get up on Friday and go about my day as usual. I am on the computer browsing again when my cell phone starts ringing. It says “Restricted”. I usually ignore those numbers but something told me to answer it. When I did, a voice comes on the line and I immediately recognize it. It is Ryan Seacrest! I knew why he was calling. He told me I won the contest and would be flying out on Sunday to L.A. (I am from NC and have never flown before then.)

So we fly out to L.A. and stay at the Hotel Angeleno. In the hotel elevator I meet several girls who are there for a TwiCon event at a bookstore in L.A.

On Monday night we are driven to the Twilight premiere. (insert note from UnintendedChoice- the PREMIERE! OMG! You could have stopped there and the story would have been amazing- but NO.. it has to go and get even better!) My husband and I get out of our car, and I just stand there taking it all in. I turn around to see who was in the car behind us and it is Jackson Rathbone.

While waiting in line to get into the theater I spot Peter Facinelli and his wife Jenni Garth. We are rushed into the theater to wait for the movie to start. I began to hear all sorts of yelling outside and immediately know why- Rob has arrived. They won’t let us leave the theater to go back outside, though. There were several people upset by this, but I just kept thinking “Wednesday morning you will get to meet him one-on-one. It will be OK.” So we watch the movie, which was amazing to see with so many Twilight fans. They all ooohd and ahhhhd at the right moments and were quiet at the right times.

Then Wednesday morning comes: I wake up early and turn on the hotel radio and listen to Ryan’s show while getting ready. I was so nervous. The driver comes and picks us up and takes us to the studios. I get out and see lots of girls lined up outside. As the guards lead us in I immediately began to feel eyes boring into me. We go inside and wait for Rob to arrive. Ryan comes out and takes a few minutes to talk to me and my husband and we get a few pictures. Rob has to do his interview with Ryan before I get to meet him. All of the sudden there is alot of commotion, and I see several people walk by near me and then……Robert Pattinson.

Two things: The beanie *swoon* and check out the size of his hands!

I almost beat the crap out of my husband’s arms. He forgot to turn the camera on and missed that pic opportunity. (note from UC- immediately fire your husband, thanks) Well, then we had a chance to listen to his interview with Ryan. So then, I know it is over. He is coming to meet me. When I see him round that corner and he starts walking toward me, I felt a little like Bella Swan, I totally forgot to breathe and almost fainted. LOL. I was shaking. I say Hello to him, and he shook my hand.

The first thing he said to me was “Are you English?” I guess I must have said Hello in a weird way or accent. I say no and he laughs. He takes a picture with me and has his arm around me. (God Bless my husband for being so understanding of my fangirliness) He then asks me how long I have been a fan of Twilight. He asks me what all I had done in L.A. so far. 

octnov2008-0421

Okay this is too freakin' adorable. I hate and love you all at the same time, Heather

I told him that we went to the premiere and he asked me how I like it. I told him that I loved it and he told me that he didn’t even stay at the premiere to watch it and that he hates watching himself. (note from UC- wow! I didn’t know you were ‘allowed’ to leave your own premiere!) (During this whole conversation he is leaning on the table and listening intently) 

I hand him my books asking him to sign them. I beging to panic realizing I don’t have a pen and being asking anyone in the room if they have a pen. “Pen Pen anyone have a pen?” I then hear laughing coming from Rob and he begins to mock my Southern Accent in a high pitch voice saying “Pen, Pen, Pen” and laughing. It was wonderful. <3 So he signs my books. He really looks like he doesn’t want to leave but he is flying out of L.A. to New York because the next morning he is scheduled to be on the Today Show. He then tells me goodbye and says I would tell you to enjoy the movie but since you have already seen it I won’t, all the while smiling that wonderful smile. I tell him that I plan on seeing it more and he laughs.

And then Rob & I went into Ryan Seacrest’s office where, with one quick swipe of his hand, he cleared off from his desk all the pictures of Ryan and celebrities he thinks he’s friends with but who hate him in actuality and threw me down on it- having his way with me with his lips. Er.. sorry. That wasn’t part of Heather’s story. That was part of MY fantasy of meeting Rob at the Ryan Seacrest show (my fantasy ends with both of us punching Ryan in the face)

Thanks Heather!!!

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,

Yeah I’ll undo those handcuffs, Rob,

Oh, Spunk Ransom, you’re the best!
