It’s time to find out how Normal you are: That’s Normal is here.

Dear Rob,

Are you like us? Is the internet more than just a place to Google where your Britpack friends are since they’re not returning your calls or find the best Robsten fan videos so you can send them to your sisters to gross them out? Yea, us too. Don’t get us wrong, we LOVE a good sepia toned video of TRUE love as much as the next Twi fan but we also love pondering the relationship status of Ryan Gosling and Eva Mendes or discussing the how awesome/awful Hannah from Girls is and of course there’s nothing like Googling awful Games of Thrones fan art.

I know. We just said “Game of Thrones” which you have to know by now has hunky, young guys such as yourself that girls are now dreaming about. Yep. Competition. And you thought your only worry these days was Channing’s ass in Magic Mike.

Well, the time has come. Many have been asking.. and many have not been asking. No, we’re not talking about UC and Moon’s civil union ceremony.  We’re talking about our latest blogging venture. It’s called That’s Normal because as we’ve come to find out over the last almost 4 years (!!!) nothing we do is ever normal but we found people out there (YOU!) who like the same bizarro crap we do. So because of that and because we have so much more to talk about than just you, Rob, we are happy/excited/scared/ecstatic to announce our new blog –

That’s Normal!

Yup, you know why we chose that name, it all started here. That’s Normal is full of the same stuff you’ve come to love here at LTR and LTT but now we’re branching out into everything! TV, film, books, weird stuff on the interwebs, why that Carly Rae Jenson song is infectious and so annoying at the same time and pretty much everything else we find interesting.

We’re currently in the construction phase of the brand spanking new blog but you can find a taste of what’s to come over at our Tumblr.

Does this mean the death of LTR?? HALE to the nah. We still love you, Rob. But we’ve missed talking about super relevant stuff– and you ARE relevant…don’t get us wrong.. but just not as often as you were before. So we’ll talk about you when we feel like it (our mantra for the last year+!) and also talk about Channing Tatum’s ass over at TN when we feel like THAT.

We hope you’ll join us as we roll out this new chapter in blogging because we love ya so much and we knew we just couldn’t quit you!

That’s Normal (duh),
Moon & UC

Am I a better person or a raving lunatic because of you?

Wondering if Moon is back YET!? I just might tell you, but first read this wonderful letter from MariaCecila

Dear Rob,

I just came back from swanning around the south of France for two weeks’ vacation with friends, and I had to stop and reflect over the question of whether my obsession with you and Twilight has made me a better, more well-informed person than before, or if it has made me a monomaniac lunatic.

Wanna hook-up in the back of my car that kinda looks like a mini-van?

Item 1. When we arrive at the airport and go to the car rental company to check out our Ford, we are informed that we have this cool, black Volvo instead. I squeal, not because of the additional safety and space, but because, I tell my friends “That is just like the car Edward drove Bella in the movie Eclipse!!” Dumbfounded friends and unsure smiles, and I decide not to elaborate on how it should really have been silver, but I snap a discrete picture just the same.

Item 2. When we arrive at our rented house in the charming French village close to the Pyrenees, I find that above my bed is a – dreamcatcher! I squeal, not because of the big bed, the charming 18th century house or the amazing view of the mountains but because “That is so much like the dream catcher Jacob gave Bella in New Moon!” Crooked smile from husband coupled with an eye-roll tells me that this is not the time to elaborate on the plot of New Moon and the Jacob vs Edward issue. Since I am Switzerland I keep my mouth shut and go out to have a three course dinner with my friends in the warm summer night instead.

You drove to Spain to see me!?

Item 3. I insist that we drive across the border to nearby Spain to visit Salvador Dali’s hometown Figueres, and once we’ve seen the museum, I drag my friends around town to find the-artist-formerly-played-by-Rob’s birth house. It’s a quite ordinary house in an ordinary street, and my friends seem unable to understand why I feel I have to take a picture of it.

Item 4. I then insist that we drive out to the coast, to visit the small town where the-artist-formerly-played-by-Rob spent his summers and the place by the sea where he built his house, and on the road I squeal repeatedly when a) I tell my friends that this looks JUST like those hills where Rob, I mean Dali, biked around with his dear friend, the famous writer Gabriel Garcia Lorca, and b) this bay is JUST like the bay where Rob, I mean Dali, went moonlight skinny dipping with his friend Lorca. The rest of the party is seemingly unimpressed by my extensive knowledge of the life of Dali.

Item 5. When a local fiesta bring people in quaint costumes out milling around and dancing in the streets and square, I can’t help remarking to my friends how much this reminds me of the tradition of yearly celebrating the absence of vampires in the Italian medieval town of Volterra, which is really very much like the French town Carcassonne that we visited the other day. After some incredulous looks I hasten to add that while of course Volterra is a real town, I myself have never been there, so I wouldn’t know for sure about this celebration from personal experience, it was just in this movie I saw…

This spot of dock should be the 8th wonder of the world!

Item 6. I completely fail to persuade my friends that we should take a day’s drive to see Cannes, since my best argument seems to be that I want to see if I can “find that spot where Rob was photographed on the quay wearing that striped shirt”. Instead we go to the beach, and I can’t help pointing out to my husband how much a young guy who is wind surfing resembles Taylor Lautner. My husband just huffs and asks me to rub some sun lotion on his back.

Item 7. When we visit a market one evening in a charming seaside town, I am unable to leave and go home because, as I explain to my friends, there is this bracelet which I don’t know if I should buy or not, because it looks remarkably like Bella’s bracelet, but then again this is clearly not Navajo handicraft, so it is not really like Bella’s bracelet, only it is the one copy I’ve seen so far that is most like it, but of course, I am not quite sure that this is a genuine turquoise since the bracelet only costs 25 dollars, but 25 bucks is 25 bucks and…this is where my husband gently starts dragging me by my shoulders to the car.

So, I know a lot more now about car makes, Spanish artists and writers, Indian handicraft, medieval architecture and traditional religious celebrations, and I am well informed about a lot of places where I myself have never been. Does this make me a wiser, better informed person, or just an obsessed lunatic who references almost everything I see either to Twilight or to you, Rob? I really need to know.

P.S. I read a copy of In Touch – in Spanish – that I found on the plane, just because they had some pictures of you at the press conference at Comic Con. It was trash, but I couldn’t help myself. Just a lapse in judgement. Sorry. But at least now I know that Daniel Radcliffe doesn’t use Q-tips. Do you?


Maria, I don’t know about the rest of them, but the only thing I think about ALL of the above is That’s Normal!

Guess what?

Even the Sexy Sax man is excited Moon is back! (Picture courtesy of our dear friend, Kim!)

Do you remember, Rob?

Pardon me while we reminisce today

Oh, I remember....

Dear Rob,

Do you remember why Moon & I started LTR (almost) 2 years ago!? It was because we were obsessing- watching every video & interview you did & right click saving every picture of you on our harddrives. And also feeling very alone.. Because besides each other, Twilight fans seemed kinda, well, special. They were what you’d expect in a fandom- crazy dressing-up as a bruised bride, “Marry me Rob” sign-waving, screaming in your presence, teenager or lonely housewife. There was no one representing us. Where were the other normal, college-educated, working 20-somethings who couldn’t believe they had fallen hard for you? Was it really just Moon & I?

That’s when LTR was born. It was born from this idea that we had to do something. We had to exploit this feeling inside us. It wasn’t normal, was it? This wasn’t us…. So we took the craziest thing we could think of that the time and decided to write “Letters” to you, daily. This was inspired by the fan videos we watched of people pouring their hearts out to you. Or from the blog posts we read from the special fans who thought maybe, just maybe you’d read what they wrote, declare your love and run away with them. I mean, what’s crazier than sharing our deepest, darkest thoughts & hopes & dreams & desires with you, Rob Pattinson, who would never read whatever we wrote after “Dear Rob?” (Turns out a lot more is crazy, but that’s what we thought at the time!)

And so we began. We began with a joke. We began from the beginning making fun of ourselves and this “Not Normal” obsession. We began in that very first week making fun of you. And then the next day we loved you. And then we questioned you. Then we got serious about you. And along the way, we found out we weren’t alone. No- there was a hugeeeeeeee group of people who did not fit the “Normal Twilight fan” mold. There were 20-somethings, teenagers, house-wives, hot older cougars, MILFS, 30-somethings, college grads, high-school drop-outs, employees at NASA (true): all who came to LTR for one thing: Laughter, swooning, discussing, friendly-banter, sometimes heated discussions all over YOU- Robert Thomas Pattinson. Which was the one thing, at the end of the day, we all agreed on.

This is Normal

And overtime, things changed. People changed. Some people’s feelings faded, some grew stronger. Some couldn’t get past your supposed relationship. We chose to make up what we thought it was or wasn’t in our heads & run with that. Because the truth isn’t funny- the truth is kinda boring. It’s funnier to tell you that last night in the throes of passion I yelled out “Rob” instead of Mr. Choice’s name instead of what we really did (fell asleep on the couch at 8:30 pm). Some people thought we had changed instead of choosing to remember that we’ve always been this way- pushing the envelope, saying the things that some people think but few dare to speak outloud. And those people left. And that was okay with us- because we have always been this way. And our philosophy isn’t going to jive with everyone out there. [Our philosophy, of course, being “That’s Normal:” The term coined for not so normal things done so often in this fandom that it has become the norm!]

At the end of the day we are,  have always been and always will be what we set out to be- a place for the outsider Twilight fan. And we don’t cater to anyone but ourselves.  And we take responsibility for everything we say. We know we offend. We know we won’t have 100% agreement (or even 10% agreement some days!!). But at the end of the day, we can all agree on this: We are Rob Pattinson fans. No matter how many people say, “Fans wouldn’t make fun of Rob the way you do,” that doesn’t change it. We are his fans. Even if they throw out the, “A fan of Rob wouldn’t HATE his girlfriend,” it doesn’t change a thing. (Mostly because we don’t hate his girlfriend but shhh don’t tell that to those who insist we do! We’re fine continuing to let them think that. Their burning hatred for us & the potential for aneurysms from the stress of LTT-hatred is quite entertaining.) WE ARE ROB’S FANS.

And we’re normal. Like last night I didn’t even think about him, once. Imagine that!? (Shall we say it together? That’s Normal)

You don't piss me off

So to those of you who have understood LTR & have been here since the beginning: we heart you. It’s nice not to be alone. And to those who found us along the way: We’re so glad you joined the crazy fun! And to those who continue to find us on a daily basis: Welcome- this is who we are. And to the lurkers who are even too “normal” to comment, you are loved. And we hope that the many of you who lurk (or comment) and don’t get it, continue to bring us much joy with the tweets you think we don’t see & aneurysms it really seems like you’re about to have with your shouty IN CAPS threats. But don’t think that’s going to change anything. This is who we are- it’s who we’ve always been. And we’re not going anywhere (well, until we’re ready to! Aka after Rob declares his love because he saw my Hot Pocket Tent at the Breaking Dawn premiere)

A wise (and very successful) blogger once told us, if you’re not pissing off 1/2 of your audience much of the time, then you’re not a good blogger!

Hoping to piss you off at least 2 weeks out of the month,


UC & Moon

Rob, here’s my fancard I give up!

Dear Rob,

I was all fine with packing up my tchotchkes for the big move (5 minutes from my current place) and  having an emo night by myself until I saw this picture of you surprising the crowd at the IMAX screening of Eclipse in Century City.

FML. I mean really? FML. I’m home throwing photo albums labeled “Bitches and Hos” and framed pictures of my grandparents into boxes and you’re showing up at movie theaters in my city? And speaking of my city… you were downtown filming that movie Water for Elephants (which I will read at the end of the month on my big trip) which is conveniently located minutes from my shack and after RARELY stopping to take pics with fans or even show your smug mug on the Filmore set you stop and take pictures with fans now?! In a Penguin hoodie?! COME ON!

It’s times like these that I can’t take living here. It’s knowing you may be 10 minutes from my house, your trailer at an intersection of downtown that I know very well, you at a movie theater I walked past a week ago, and it’s just you being in my general vicinity that I can’t take. I feel like I’m on high alert all that time, that as any moment I could cross your path. I even thought about (for a hot minute) going to said IMAX theater last night but then I caught a glimpse of my crazy self in the base of the mercury glass candle stick I was packing and remembered I’m not a psycho and should calm the ef down! I repeated the mantra “I am normal… I am normal… do not walk out of this door with your greasy ass hair thinking you’re going to see Rob. Freak… I am normal.”

Unlike this girl…

Though I can’t say I blame her those cardboard cutout things aren’t cheap AND they make a great conversation piece next to all your tchotchkes (isn’t that the best word ever?)… I can’t also blame her because I would have dared someone to do this during the “Truth or Dare” portion of #leghitch2010 only we never got that far, we only dared someone to sharpie a teardrop under Kristen Stewart’s eye and look how that turned out**. Laugh now, cry later, after all. But don’t think we won’t be daring someone to rip off the Breaking Dawn cardboard cutout at a Burger King or Borders during #PillowBite2011. That is SOOO happening.

So even though you’re out running a muck in my city (like how I’ve claimed it for myself?) I just can’t be on high alert anymore, I might go crazy… or worse yet not get my packing done and then I’ll be the crazy girl with no house and a ripped up Edward cutout from Eastern Europe or wherever that was. So I hope you’ll accept my resignation and revoke my fan card for failing to be at any of these events in Los Angeles. But maybe you’ll understand and hand me that special “I’m Normal” card you’ve got hidden in your back pocket for special folks like me?? I can only hope.


**CALM DOWN I’M KIDDING! I’m SO JOKING about the Sharpie, it was a little girl who accidentally got her sharpie filled hand knocked into Kristen’s face,  not us. We have eye witnesses! JOKES PEOPLE! I hate that I have to write this here, but some folks lack of a sense of humor makes me do it**

But anyway… Who wants to pack up my house while I go try to reclaim my fancard? Or is the “I’m Normal” card better to have? Have you thought about using the 5 finger discount on a cardboard Edward in a store near you?
