Have you checked out here blog?  It's hilarious!  You really should get over there and see what LwE and mini-Edward are up to!

Without further ado....here's LwE.................

What got you into Twilight?
I first heard of Twilight on TV in December of 2008. I remember seeing previews for it and then I saw something on one of those movie review shows and I thought it looked really interesting. I didn’t even know it was based on a book. I always liked vampire things but I can’t watch anything scary. I was actually worried that Twilight was going to be a bit scary because it was about vampires. I finally decided to see it right after Christmas with my husband. We both really liked it and went to see it again a week later. I saw it 5 times in the theater, then I bought the book. I don’t like to read, so that was huge for me. I got addicted to the story then, and read the whole saga in a week.

Do your family and friends know how deep your twi-obsession goes (be specific about what your obsession is, how do you hide it, or how do you advertise it)
My husband knows everything. But he is a bit obsessed himself. He is constantly quoting the movies to the point of annoyance. He is very supportive of my blog and sometimes helps with the photography. Some of my family know. My mom knows about my blog and has helped with a few pics of mini Edward herself although I don’t think she has ever seen the blog. And on my most recent trip to visit my dad, he even got involved, which I was shocked at. But I don’t really do much with my obsession besides my blog and read the others. I have some merch. But even that I try to get on clearance and I’m not an avid collector of it. Except for the action figures. I’ll have to include a pic of the insane army I have.
from left to right: Edward, Edward who will remain in box, EC, Unbroken Jasper, Alice, Ed, Bella, Anthony, Eddie, Broken arm Jasper, Cullen, gasp! is that Victoria I see?!, Masen, and Newdward.
Are you team Edward, team Jacob, team (fill in the blank)? Why, is it because of the character or the person that plays them in the movie?
Team Edward, all the way. I love Edward’s character. And I have a thing for vamps and a thing for Rob. The first time I saw the movie, I actually wasn’t really that impressed with his looks. (Runs for cover) I thought he played a really neat vampire with him acting so human on the brink of losing it. That is what really fascinated me to the point that I wanted to see it again. But it didn’t take long for me to fall for the sex on legs that is Robert Pattinson.

Which Twilight book is your favorite and why?
This is a tough question for me. It’s a pretty close tie between Eclipse and Breaking Dawn. Eclipse has a really intense story and a lot of interesting character development. But I think Breaking Dawn had more suspense in it because no one could really guess how the baby was going to turn out and all that. And what was going to happen with the Volturi. Even though it was the battle that never wasn’t I’m glad no one had to die. I also really loved reading about Bella experiencing vampirism. I found that really interesting. That is my favorite part of the whole saga, but I’m not sure BD is my favorite book. I guess it depends on my mood.

If you read fanfic and your willing to admit it which is your favorite story?
Oh god! There are too many. I read all my FF on Twilighted.net. My current faves are Harvest Moon, Beyond Time, Hide and Drink, Across the Universe, Waking Up, The Woods are Lovely Dark and Deep, The Unaccompanied Soul, At Your Own Risk, and so many more. If you have time, look some of these up. You probably all have your own giant lists.

Which person would you most likely still be into if they were not involved in Twilight; explain why.
Probably Rob. I really enjoy his acting. However the only other movie of his I saw was Remember Me. Still waiting to see How To Be. I’ve had a movie out at Blockbuster since October and I don’t think I can rent anything until I pay for it. But I just found out that Blockbuster closed so now I have nowhere to rent movies. And he really has a unique look. He doesn’t look even similar to any one else to compare to.
If you ever met your favorite Twilight star how would you react? What would you do or say?
I have no idea. I know what I wouldn’t do. I would not scream or jump up and down or do anything obnoxious like that. I’m way too cool. J I would probably not know what to say though. I guess I would do the typical ask for the autograph thing and say I love your work and blah blah blah. I would hope that I would be able to come up with a funny sarcastic comment to make them laugh and not feel weird about me. It would most likely be a completely un-rememberable event for them. I may have them sign my mini Edward, but then that might contradict the plan of them not feeling weird about me.

If you were to replace any person in Twilight who would you replace them with and why?
Kristen Stewart, in a heartbeat. It’s not that I don’t like her, I do think she is a very good actress, but I can’t see her as a believable Bella. She’s too rough around the edges I think. I don’t think she portrays Bella’s love for Edward well enough in all three of the movies. It seems more like she thinks of Edward as a buddy. She just doesn’t display the emotion that Bella claims to have in the books. I understand that a character who is quiet and insecure would be a bit underplayed, I think Kristen underplays Bella on an extreme.

How many times have you read the Twilight Saga? If you've read it multiple times, what makes you keep rereading? If you've only read it once, why haven't you reread it?????
I’ve read the whole saga 7 or 8 times. Then last October I finally got my own computer, found fan fiction and haven’t touched the saga again. LOL

What is your most precious item in your Twilight collection and why? (share pics if possible)
My most precious item is and autographed photo of Robert Pattinson. My mom’s boyfriend got it for me for Christmas.
What is the craziest Twilight related thing you've done? (include pics if possible)
I am embarking on a trip across the country to room with people I’ve never met and hang out with all of the Twi blog hostesses for an incredible weekend of epic crazy funness. All in the name of Twilight. My husband and I don’t even get to take trips together except for when we visit my dad in Michigan. So this is a bit crazy for me.
Meeting people in person that I met online seemed like a crazy thing to me too, but I decided to try it in going to see Eclipse with Dangrdafne, her friend DangrDonna, and Mrs. P. I am so glad I did. It was one of the most fun nights ever.
DangrDonna, Dangrdafne, me, and Mrs. P at Eclipse

What is your favorite song from the Twilight Saga and why?
Probably Super Massive Black Hole by Muse. It is just an awesome song. I have no other reasons.

Tell us your favorite quote from each book.
Twilight: “Do you remember when you told me that I didn’t see myself very clearly?” I asked, raising my eyebrows. “You obviously have the same blindness.”
New Moon: “Well, I’m nearly a hundred and ten. It’s time I settled down.”
Eclipse: “I was all braced for the wrath that was going to put grizzlies to shame, and this is what I get? I should infuriate you more often.”
Breaking Dawn: “It goes against the grain,” he explained, “letting you wrestle with lions. I was having an anxiety attack the whole time.”

Has Twilight taken over your life? Explain.
Yes and no. It hasn’t changed the way that I live my life but my extra curricular activities are usually Twi related. If I read, it’s Fanfiction. Most of my time on the computer is used to read all of your lovely blogs. But come to think of it, I would not have bought my laptop if it wasn’t for Twilight. I was reading the blogs at work for about 9 months before I bought my computer. The systems that our work computers have do not allow commenting on the blogs so I really couldn’t get involved. I even bought my digital camera because of Twilight. I was going to go see 100 Monkeys and there was no way that I was going to see Jackson Rathbone or meet him with out photographing it. And not to mention I had to buy mini Edward. I had him and the camera for about a month before the computer, and I needed the computer to start Living with Edward. So I guess to sum up, Twilight hasn’t taken over my life but it does influence some of my decisions. And thankfully to this point, those decisions have only ended in good consequences.

Tell us anything else Twilighty about yourself that you would like to share.
Sometimes I drive like a Cullen.

Thanks LwE for sharing with us!!!!  I love the autographed pic of the Precious!  It is beautiful.....I ♥ that photo shoot!  I need to get an ah-my of Edwards!!!!
LOL!  But I guess I should just be glad I was able to sneak one into the house!

Next week is open if you want to featured!


  1. Uh Ohhhhh.....

    Corrine - sweets...just a warning. Both Sandy & I are RABID fans of Kristen Stewart. Maybe we can just avoid that subject altogether in FFFOOORRKKKS and stick to the Rob worship. ;-)


  2. I love your Team mini Edward shirt!!!! It's really cool that your hubs is into Twilight too. I absolutely love reading your blog those boys slay me :) PS Where is Bella??? LOL

    Thank you for sharing with us!

  3. great answers LwE!

    I really love reading everyone's favorite quotes. Yours were great!

    Alice had a vision. The craziest thing you'll ever do is kiss bye-bye to your Rob photo/autograph and send it to me. :P

  4. @Mama Cougar: I do like Kristen. She is a very god actress. There were spots in all 3 Twi films where I liked what she did and thought it was very Bella like, but I didn't like her as Bella as a whole. I thought she just underplayed it a bit too much, bringing in more of her own character in rather than Bella's. Please don't hate me. LOL

    @Kassie: To answer your question about Bella, I DON'T KNOW!! No body knows!! You think 8 Edwards could find one measly little Bella. I have been making fun of them relentlessly.

    @TT: Alice's visions are subjective. The future can always change. (jumps off rock all emo like)

  5. @LwE - I would never hate you for your opinion. But for me, Bella is the character most open to interpretation in the entire series, which leaves more room for creative license.

    Kristen has gone on record as much as saying she did not like the way Catherine Harwicke directed her to play Bella in Twilight. She wasn't a fan of the whiny, withering wallflower vulnerability that was asked of her, but in the end, it was her job to act as she was directed. That must have sucked to have to do something counterintuitive to how you feel about your character.

    I loved Kristen's New Moon Bella. I can't imagine anyone pulling off a nearly suicidal, catatonic teenager in better than she did.

    Also, I ADORE Kristen's chemistry with Billy Burke. For me, that was the highlight of Eclipse.

    It's probably the age differece that accounts for our difference of perspective and I totally respect that. As long as we agree that Rob belongs IN our room & Taylor can curl up outside the door, we're GOLDEN baby!!!


  6. PS

    Can I just add here that @Mrs.P is hot?!? 'Cause she totally is.

    And those danger girls...something tells me they are indeed, Dangerous. Maybe it's the mischeivous eye twinkles? Those girls is trubble.


  7. @MC: There were quite a few scenes in New Moon that I really loved Kristen in. My fave scene of hers is the one in the rain with Jacob. I think she killed that scene, in a good way. And I totally agree with you on her and Billy Burke. They are so funny together.

    I also think the script writing definitely leaves something to be desired with every character in the series. I totally think there were a lot of missed oppurtunities that really created a lack of "character" especially in Edward and Bella. I understand that they only have 2 hours to fill the whole plot and blah blah blah, but they could have went 2 hours and 20 minutes or so if it meant the film was more full.

    I definitely agree that Rob should be in our room, for sure. Too bad you are already sharing your bed with Sandy. Oh well. And Jacob can totally stay outside the door. I don't care if I get cold.

  8. I'd always had an odd feeling about how Bella was played. I could never put my finger on it but your comments and the others here made me realize that it wasn't the acting skills of Kristen, because I agree she preformed the best in New Moon, so maybe the directing did play a big part. I really didn't like how Bella came across in Eclipse, don't know why or who's to blame, but Eclipse book Bella's emotions were soooo different than movie Bella. Edward's general feel was pretty smooth all through the movies bringing in the emotions of book Edward and how he changed etc. and of course Rob can do no wrong anyway...
    I loved your insights, and blog/ff whore that I am, I'll be checking out your site and taking your ff suggestions. I'm still "pimping" my favorite ff to everyone (Emancipation Proclamation), and you didn't mention it in your list, give it a try, you won't regret it!

  9. Great post! It's so fun to learn more about the people who are behind all these fantastic blogs we all read!! So, LwE is married to a "unicorn"! That's so sweet! I love that he's supportive of the cause...and is a bit obsessed himself. Her pictures on her blog always make me smile and LOL at times.

    I'm soooooo jealous of all these people getting read for the trip to FORKS!!! Gah. I want to go!!
