No More Spoilers and a Double Meme

So here we are, checking out the blogs and wait a minute, whats this? We were tagged by Latchkey Wife for the Twilight Blog Meme! Blushing. Let's do it! SP and SW provide the answers:

1) What is the craziest/most stupid thing you've ever done (that you would be willing to share!)?
SW: There are a lot of crazy/stupid things I've done that I would not be willing to share (SP has witnessed some of them first hand). I, in fact, do stupid things all the time. But something crazy that I'd be willing to share...once while intoxicated, Mr.W's boss made a pass at me in front of Mr.W. So I slapped him and called him out in front of all his subordinates (Mr. W is in the military). Which might not sound so crazy, but in a military structure, when some little girlfriend slaps her boyfriend's boss and calls him a prick to his face in a loud voice, it silences the room. And then I got a round of applause.

SP: Ooh! Good one SW! I am a sad, boring person who really does nothing "crazy." I have to be pretty laid back because Mr. Swan is the one who gets into all sorts of shenanigans. So I'll have to rely on my ability to embarrass the shit out of myself. Which luckily, I am pretty good at most of the time. Like when SW and I went to a nice little cookie swap with a group of ladies. We didn't really know anyone (or each other), but we were attempting to mingle like good little military wives do. We're sitting in the living room, when a certain young lady begins talking about her plans for Christmas leave. She mentions that they're going to visit the in-laws and then looked at me and asked, "What are you doing?" Being the polite person that I am, I reciprocate with my own holiday plans. The girl looks at me with the weirdest face and says "I wasn't talking to YOU." It was then that we noticed she had a GOOGLY EYE. SW and I just looked at each other in shock and tried not to laugh. I was so embarrassed because of the whole situation, and SW and I later bonded over the moment. Yes, we are the kind of people who are heartless bitches and make fun of people behind their backs. To this day we still call her Googly Eyes...

So there you have it. I'm officially lame.

2) One my personal favorite games: Fuck, Marry, Kill. With the Twilight cast.

SW: Fuck: Jasper, Marry: Edward, Kill: Caius. Just to note, once I married Edward, I'd stop fucking Jasper. Promise. And Caius is just a prick. An evil prick. It was still hard to chose between him and Jessica Stanely though. And I figured that killing Jacob was just too easy. Plus, FC over at WeBitePrettyHard already took care of him for me.

SP: Well, I'll be a good friend and only Fuck: Edward and Marry: Jasper. I'll let SW fuck my hubby once if I can do hers once too. ;) (I have a thing for Jasper's only grown worse since I started reading fanfic!) And I definitely need to kill Mike. Ugh!! He is such a dumb ass! I'll be happy to get rid of him. [Note: If for some reason Mr. White or Mr. Swan are reading this, I meant the husband sharing part ONLY in regards to Edward and Jasper. Thank you, that is all. ]

3) What is your favorite band/type of music?

SW: I have a lot of favorites, and they change on a regular basis. And I'm very eclectic. Current favorites: Dashboard Confessional, Death Cab For Cutie, Snow Patrol, The Strokes, The Radio Dept., and...Taylor Swift ( I don't care who you are, you want to sing along when that girl's songs come on the radio!).

SP: I'm an alternative rock kinda girl, though I like most kinds of music too. Of course I have to say that one of my long-time favorite bands is the All-American Rejects. Some of my other favs include The Used, Rise Against, Papa Roach, and (my newest) the Silversun Pickups.

4) What is your favorite movie besides Twilight?

SW: Since I can't just choose one, here are my top five: Pride and Prejudice (w/ Kiera Knightley), 3:10 to Yuma, The Royal Tenenbaums, Little Miss Sunshine, and Breakfast at Tiffany's.

SP: My favorite movie is also Pride and Prejudice. Ah, Mr. Darcy...he held my heart until Edward came along...

5) Do you RL life family/friends know you’re addicted to Twilight? A blogger?

SW: Well my husband knows about the blog and my obsession (he's not highly pleased about it, but he attempts to be a good sport). Most of my family knows that I like Twilight, but they have no idea about the blog, and I plan to keep that way. I swear a lot and talk about sex on this blog, all I need is for my MIL to find it. Shudder. Gag. As for friends, some of my friends are co-writers on the blog, but most of friends have no idea it exists. But I've given up on trying to hide how much I love the Twilight books/movie.

SP: Mr. Swan knows that I am passionate about Twilight (and constantly reading “my stories,” as he calls fanfic) but he doesn’t know that I blog about it! My best friends and my sisters pretty much have to bear the brunt of my obsessiveness and listen to me go on and on about all things Twilight.

6) How many hours a week do you spend doing Twi related things? You know, blogging, looking at pictures of the cast, reading fan fiction, etc.

SW: While I have been totally slacking on blog posts, I make time daily to check out fanfic and other people's blogs. Perhaps: 15-20 hours a week? Which is my low number. And that is just sad. Like, SP, I also need an IPhone.

SP: Well, I would say now that I’m working again (I’m a teacher) and also working on my masters, that I am only able to spend around 15 hours a week on my Twi-related activities. If only we had internet at work….MUST. GET. iPHONE!

7) Any random fact you might want to share. Big or small, it doesn't matter.

SW: For the past three years, I have asked for a copy of Mastering the Art of French Cooking for Christmas, and no one will get it for me.

SP: I am a total perfectionist, and I have a complex system for my calendar. Everything is color coded, and I have stickers to mark certain events. Oh and I have to have giant boxes to write in (lined of course, so that my writing isn't crooked). So, yeah....

PS, from SW: I also have my closet color coordinated. I know that SP does too.

Also, we won't be posting anymore spoilers until New Moon is out. Promise.

Summit Wants All of Twitarded's Merch For It's Own!

This morning, I got on the computer, and did what I do most (okay, every) morning. I ran through my Twilight blog list to see what everyone is up to. And to my horror and great annoyance: this. Evidently, the girls over at Twitarded are having The Man come down on them. Seems to be that Summit Entertainment thinks they own Twitarded's personal images, to include the picture in their header and on all their merchandise. An image that was created by Snarky's Mr. Snarky. Does Summit also think they own everything with the word Twi in it? Because let me tell you something: the production company that decided to replace Rachelle Lafevre as Victoria doesn't own MY blog.

Twitarded holds a special place in my heart. They were the first Twilight-related blog I found that was more then just paparazzi clips and leaked movie info. JJ and STY introduced me to the world of smart, hilarious, non-teenager bloggers who are out there with an undying love for all things Twilight. And the fact that Summit would come down on such makers of joy, pissed me the fuck off.
Tiny E throws his hands up in disgust. He'd be giving the man the finger, but they don't pose. Trust, he's thinking about it though.

Perhaps Summit realizes the greatness that is JJ and STY. I just bet they are taking claim to all that merch and hording it for themselves. They are walking around their little production office with Twitarded buttons and drinking their coffee out of Twitarded mugs and have their keys attached to Twitarded key chains. Greedy mofos. What about the rest of us? Pay for it like everyone else, movie-making bitches! Those buttons only cost a $1.50!

And since they only cost $1.50, I say go now and get yours. Before they take them all away.

The Man Is Trying To Kill Us.

Is that a bear skin rug? And come and get me eyes? AND skin? Good Lord. I might be hyperventilating. I might, in fact, be dead from his hotness. Is that possible?
Thanks for the image Confessions of a Twicrack Addict! Thank you soooo much.

Sweeeeet! And, HOT.

It's been a crappy week. Things keep going wrong. Very wrong. But then, I walk into my local Walgreens and once again they come out victorious. Because, although it's not suppose to be out until Friday, this was out on stands:

I grabbed two copies (one for me and one for QP). Might I add, the ONLY two copies. And as I did my happy dance, thanked my lucky stars that Walgreens workers have no concept of correct dates for magazine releases, and assured the cashier, that yes, I did know I had two copies of the magazine, I realized that no matter how bad a week is, hottie pics of Robert Pattinson can makes things a little brighter.

Return of Saturday Sparklers!

That's right all...the weekly shout-outs return!

I am in love. With Letters to Twilight. UC and Moon have some suggestions for the Twilight Saga cast memebers on how they can make some extra cash on the side.

Twitarded Googles all things Twilight related. Hilarity insues (Robert Pattinson a virgin? Bawh ha ha.)

Latchkey Wife debates how to come out of the Twicloset to her Mr. Latchkey. Let's hope he lets her continue blogging/live after he finds out how much she wants to have crazy wild sex with Robward. Now that I type that, I realize we haven't heard from Latchkey for a couple days...hope she's okay!

And the girls at Twisessed give us this wonderful whipped cream gift.

Attention: I Hate Jacob and Here's Why.

There's no room for you, Taycob, in this twosome.

In case we haven't made it clear, we are a tad bit excited that New Moon is coming out next month. However, I want to make something very clear. Despite New Moon being a big Jacob franchise, we are firmly Team Edward. We don't really care for Jacob much. And after reading Letters to Twilight's fantastically funny post today about Team affiliation, I thought I'd climb up on my soap box and give my opinion.

Ahem. Hi all. My name is SW and I am Team Edward. Hard-core. After reading Twilight and then watching the movie and getting a visual of the perfection that is Edward Cullen, I fell madly in love with him. When I read New Moon and he left I was beside myself. I hated that Bella kept spending time with Jacob (go hang out with Angela, idiot). And then there was Eclipse. I hated how selfish, how ridiculous Bella was throughout that book (and yes, it did annoy me that Edward didn't just suck it up and fight for his girl instead of being all mature and shit and taking the fucking high road. Or at least pretending to take the high road.). But nothing compared to my hatred of Jacob. The mouth rape for starters. No means no, asshole. And the general being mean to Bella. Not the way to win the girl. Of course, stupid Bella keeps going back for more, keeps forgiving him. When she should just say, "Look dude, I'm sorry about this, but you and I can't hang out anymore. I'm busy trying to seduce my vampire boyfriend/true love forever into sex before marriage and you are putting a crimp in that. Plus you forced kissed me and you are generally douche-y. Laters."

And then there is the infamous real kiss. I hated hated hated this scene. There was nothing I liked about it. Nothing. When I read it, I slammed the book shut and had this conversation with Mr. W:

SW, yelling: "What the hell, bitch! Oh my God!"
Mr. W, looking at me with worry: "Who are you talking about?"
SW: "Bella. What a bitch."
Mr. W, confused and amused: "Bella? The character in those books you're reading? She's not real, honey."
SW, pissed off at Bella and Mr. W: "Shut up. You don't even know what you're talking about."

I hated Jacob for being such a fuckstick to fake that he was going to kill himself if Bella wouldn't kiss him. And I hated Bella for believing him, and doing it. In hindsight, I can give Bella a little credit here. She's confused by this friend-love and the supernatural force that is pulling them together since she's going to give birth to the object of Jacob's imprint. Not to mention the poor girl is sexually frustrated by the hot boyfriend who won't get naked with her. Combine all those factors and you have her living out her sexual wants for Edward transferred into Jacob, even though she doesn't seem to realize that at the time. But still, you're engaged to someone you want to love forever. Quit kissing other people! And yes, I know they're teenagers. But still. Hate Jacob's manipulative ass. Even more I hate how he tries to be all high and mighty at the end when she chooses Edward. Whatever shithead.

Breaking Dawn did make it a little easier to like Jacob a bit. However, when I first came across Part II in Jacob's perspective, I nearly stopped reading it. But I moved forward and it all worked out okay. And because I know how it all turns out, I can enjoy New Moon the Movie even more. Thank you.

So there you have it. SW's take on what Team is the right Team. And I think we all know the answer to that, right?
