Twilight Junkie Tuesday Featuring.....Lety!!!!

This week's featured Twilight Junkie is Lety from 
She's new to the bloggysphere so give her a warm welcome and head over to her
blog and show her some love!!!!!!

What got you into Twilight?
My daughter :)  My husband rented Twilight when it first came out for my daughter. He said it seemed like something she would like to see.  I refused to watch it, only because I hate when the media tells me whats in. I have been hearing so much about the Twilight Saga, I honestly thought it was a cable show series. My daughter got into the movie and rented the movie a few more times.  I finally sat down and watched the ending where James and Edward fight at the ballet studio. I thought that was pretty cool, so I made her start the movie again. Of course I got distracted and didn't see. She rented it another day and only seen the prom scene. That did it for me, I ended up starting the movie over and there is where my obsession began. Then her birthday came up and I purchased the deluxe DVD edition.  Few weeks later we were at the airport waiting for our flight out to California for our summer vacation, and I decided to go get reading material for the plane ride.  Of course, I got Twilight and was immediately hooked, As soon as I came back home, I read New Moon, Eclipse and Breaking Dawn all within 2 weeks!!!!

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)
Oh yea, everyone know. I always wear Twilight shirts, almost everyday :)  The cool thing is the people who I hang out with the most, are awesome.  I can talk Twilight and they don't make fun of me or roll their eyes.  My neighbors have seen me glued to Twilight books and know not to bother me.  My mom and her friends are now converted and ask to borrow my movies from time to time. I have other friends who like the movies but not obsessed like I am, and I am the go to girl if they have questions. So it is very easy for me to act and dress Twilighty :)  I am so lucky to have my daughter as what she calls herself "Twilight Freak" and my TwiMom friend who I hang out with and do Twilighty stuff together.

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?
I am definitely Team Edward!!!!!!!!! Edward is so perfect! He is gorgeous, and oh such a gentleman. He knows how to treat a lady, he knows what exactly to say. Imagine such a man to exist!!! Where his life would just revolve around me, my every breath.  I can just melt thinking about it, lol.

Which Twilight book is your favorite and why?
It's really hard for me to say. My favorites are Eclipse and Breaking Dawn.  I love Eclipse because of the Quileute history and of course my Jasper's story. I love how there was so much action in Eclipse book. When I read the book I already knew that the movie was going to have awesome battle scenes. I also love Breaking Dawn, I am actually rereading it now. Stephanie Meyer rocks. I just love the honeymoon, pregnancy, the birth, and the covens!!!

If you read fanfic and your willing to admit it which is your favorite story?
Honestly, I started to read fanfic, but didn't get far. I can't sit and read off of a screen for a long time. I need the real deal to be in my hands and turn the actual pages. Sometimes I sit back and wonder what my fellow TwiMoms are talking about. Oh well, the fanpics will do.

Which person would you most likely still be into if they were not involved in Twilight; explain why.
None, before Twilight I was not a celebrity follower. I just watched a movie because it seemed pretty cool and that was it.  I never went to a movie just because so and so was in it. 

If you ever met your favorite Twilight star how would you react? What would you do or say.
I already met a few, Peter Facinelli (1ce), Michael Welch (2ce), Bronson Pelleteir (2ce), Kiowa Gordon (1ce), Alex Meraz (1ce) they were awesome. For some reason with Bronson Pelletier I was standing there in shock. Nothing came out, I just stood in front of him frozen like a dork (and I am not even Team Wolf Pack!). But my dream would be to meet Robert Pattinson!!!! I don't know what I will say, well that is if I don't stand there frozen like a dork!!! I have to start rehearsing. I hope I don't squee and scare him away.

If you were to replace any person in Twilight who would you replace them with and why?
Oh! I so would want to replace Kristen Stewart!! I want to be Edward's girl!!! I think I would faint at the prom scene!!! Just to have Edward's face that close to mine and tease me with a kiss on my neck instead of a bite.

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 have read the Twilight 3 times, New Moon just 1ce (my least favorite), Eclipse 3 times, and Breaking Dawn 3 times, going on 4.

What is your most precious item in your Twilight collection and why? (share pics if possible)
My most precious item!! That is sooo hard to say!!! We have soo many, there is no way we can choose!!!!

What is the craziest Twilight related thing you've done? (include pics if possible)
When my TwiMom friend and I decided to go look for Robert Pattinson when he went to the Oprah Show, we left at 4a.m!!!!! I slept only 2hours that night, I was soo excited. Can't believe we stood outside that long, but I am glad we did. We met alot of wonderful TwilightMoms there who are now my friends.

What is your favorite song from the Twilight Saga and why?
WITH YOU IN MY HEAD!!!!! The training scene in Eclipse!!! I just love Jasper!!!! I have that song on replay when I am getting ready to go out to pump me up. I also have that song on replay while I clean to give me energy :)  Oh on our family vacation this summer we would have With You In My Head on replay during our mini road trips up/down the mountains. (sometimes we would be driving in the mountains for 3-4hours!!) My husband did not mind, he said as long as we are enjoying our vacation and we are happy :) 

Tell us your favorite quote from each book?
Twilight, Chapter 13, page 274  Bella and Edward
"And so the lion fell in love with the lamb...," he murmured. I looked away, hiding my eyes as I thrilled to the word. "What a stupid lamb," I sighed. "What a sick, masochistic lion."
New Moon, Chapter 23, page 510 Edward
You’re not asleep, and you’re not dead. I’m here, and I love you. I have always loved you, and Iwill always love you. I was thinking of you, seeing your face in my mind, every second that I was away. When I told you that I didn’t want you, it was the very blackest kind of blasphemy.
Eclipse, Chapter 13, page 301 Alice and Jasper
"And you ducked your head, like a good Southern gentleman, and said, "I'm sorry, ma'am."  Alice laughed at the memory. Jasper smiled down at her. "You held out your hand, and I took it without stopping to make sense of what I was doing.  For the first time in almost a century, I felt hope."
Breaking Dawn, Chapter 39, page 753 Bella "CULLEN"
I knew it was working then, so I concentrated even harder, dredging up specific memories I’d saved for this moment, letting them flood my mind, and hopefully his as well. Some of the memories were not clear – dim human memories, seen through weak eyes and heard through weak ears: the first time I’d seen his face… the way it felt when he’d held me in the meadow… the sound of his voice through the darkness of my faltering consciousness when he’d saved me from James… his face as he waited under a canopy of flowers to marry me… every precious moment from the island… his cold hands touching our baby through my skin… And the sharp memories, perfectly recalled: his face when I’d opened my eyes to my new life, to the endless dawn of immortality… that first kiss… that first night…

Has Twilight taken over your life? Explain.
Taken over my life? I wouldn't say taken over my life, but I find a way to make everyday Twilighty. There is always something Twilighty going on in my life. If there is something going on that is Twilight related, believe me I am there!!!! Plus, I carry around a Pocket Edward, whenever there is a cool what seems to be Twilighty moment, I take a pic :)

Tell us anything else Twilighty about yourself that you would like to share.
I am getting Twilight related tattoos next year.  Alot of people who don't understand would probably react negatively. What people don't know is how Twilight is part of my life now. My daughter and I have have always been super close, but Twilight gave us a special bond.  These past few years have been awesome for us, including my husband, brother and parents.  The tatoo is a representation of these past few years and the coming years of our Twilighty adventures.  The crazy stuff my daughter and I have done because of Twilight. I LOVE IT!! again Thank You Stephanie Meyer for everything

  2. Hi TT , thanx for leaving a comment on here and on my blog <3

  3. Hi Lety,
    Nice to meet you! I love the outside Oprah pictures, I would have been thrilled to be able to just stand outside of where they all were and get those pictures, wow just to be in Chicago would have been cool.
    Also love how you and your daughter can bond over this, it will serve you well that you have this between you. And of course I love all your Twilight related treasures.

  4. Hey Lety thanks so much for sharing with us.

    I can't believe you were outside Oprah, we probably saw each other and didn't even know it. I remember seeing the one security guard from your first pic... too funny :)
