*Dear Rob, We’re gonna let forum mod and awesome friend Kristin, take the wheel for this letter, kinda like Carrie Underwood let Jesus. So sit back and relax as one of our favorite ladies talks about her year in the fandom!*
Happy anniversary Moon and UC! I can’t believe its been a year! I started lurking at the blogs in January. And made my first comment in February. Its been all down hill since then. HA! I kid. Well, for my family, yes, downhill…because my laptop has fused to the tops of my thighs, which makes things a little difficult in real life. Never before in my life have I had such an obsession with something. So add a notch for me in your bedposts. I was a “obsessive fandom virgin”. If there was every any fandom I would want to associate myself with, it would you you two yahoos and these blogs. Y’all are my life now (said like Britney Spears quoting Twilight) and I can’t live without you.
So you want to know how my life has changed? I can’t go for a walk with out saying “sidewalk” and “candy”. I can’t call anyone a moron, its always super human moron. I no longer eat cream of anything soup (who knows what I’m talking about? 5 fangirl points), and I don’t take showers for weeks on end so I can come close to smelling as earthy as Rob. That is a lie. Here is not a lie – I actually opened my freezer and kissed my icemaker. If you haven’t done it, try it. I am thinking it is pretty close to what Edwards lips would feel like. I smile when I pass the hot pockets, vodka, heineken, string cheese and coke products in the grocery store. I’ve barely read anything since Twilight. I can’t. It feels like cheating. Here is something I thought I would never do after 8th grade again, I bought flannel and dusted off my Docs. I go to a new church, called St. Mattress, to worship His Holy Hotness. There is so much more but I have probably already embarrassed myself beyond repair. So basically, I’ve gone to the ledge of sanity, and kicked my legs over.
On this insane journey I have been far too lucky to meet the most beautiful, witty, smart, and hilarious people on this planet. At this point I can’t imagine my life with out them or their brand of crazy. I have so many inside jokes with people on this site, that i think I may have to start a catalog system. Anything from trapping Rob in a basement, to dumpster diving for a little nookie, and running to intersections in wedding dresses to die. That last one sounds really morbid..but trust me, given the chain of make believe events we have planned out, its worth it. . I have also committed to living in a “big love” style commune with all the hunky actors, marrying one and sharing the rest. . So I guess there is another way my life has changed. I am now accepting of having an open marriage and multiple partners. Mind you, only if Rob and friends are in tow.
Follow the cut for the rest of Kristin’s year…
There are so many fabulous people that I converse with on a weekly, if not daily basis, that I would have never known had Moon and UC not start these blogs. I need an MTV episode of True life, there are several options actually as to what I could call my episode. True Life: I met all my best friends on a Twilight website. or True Life: I would leave my husband for Robert Pattinson. Or True Life: I don’t know the real lyrics to “We Are The World” and “Hide and Seek” because they are all now about Rob and Twilight.
Kristin- thank you so much for being an original forum mod and helping walk us through how to use the darn thing since you were an old pro! And for always being up when I am late late late on the west coast. For writing fake songs with me and then even agreeing to sing them. I’m running for the intersection with the boombox, I’ll meet you there! XO- Moon
and of course…
