Eclipse, Drinking Games and Hotel Romping w/ a Volturi…

Ok, not really, but I got your attention, didn’t I? Read on to find out what the fuss is about…

Today is the day! Today is the day! All that stands between me and an advanced screening of Eclipse is 8 1/2 hours. Yeesh that seems like an eternity right now. I am SO freaking excited. Obviously I won’t be able to post my feelings on the movie until later in the week, but in the meantime, a few random Twi-notes.

1. Last night I stayed up way too late re-reading Eclipse. I was on page 173 when I started and while I didn’t finish—eventually I just started re-reading scenes I’m looking forward to—I made a serious dent, which means I’m running on nothing but adrenaline (and a some delicious Dunkin Donuts coffee) today. Despite my lack of sleep I seriously cannot keep from bouncing in my chair, which I am sure my co-workers find totally normal.

2. Speaking of my co-workiers finding things totally normal, I brought the Edward doll to work today. Why? I don’t know. But I just felt like if ever there was a day to have him by my side—and look like a total psycho weirdo to those around me—today was the day! Right now, he’s overseeing product development. That Edward!

What a sick, masochistic knitted doll....

3. Saturday night, some friends and I hit up TwiNight for the New Moon screening. (NOTE: I do not condone open containers, underage drinking, drinking in public places that are not bars, or loud talking during Twi-films.) (ANOTHER NOTE: my friends and I ARE of age.) Now that that’s out of the way, I gotta level with you people: we made some delicious alcoholic concoctions and brought them in water bottles and enjoyed a rousing rendition of the New Moon Drinking Game under the stars. I have to say: I’ve never played my own game before. The Twilight game, yes, but I was much less Twi-Drinking Game savvy at the time and had yet to get rules from P-Fatch, so that one’s MUCH tamer than New Moon, which has over 20 rules. And I will tell you: that drink every time someone is wearing plaid rule is a killer! People wear plaid in that movie like people wear plaid on set in Vancouver! It’s crazy! Halfway through, the plaid rule became the most hysterical thing ever and our obnoxious laughter probably ruined the experience for some of the folks around us. That said, the ear-piercing screaming (mostly for Tay, interestingly enough…settle down, there, soccer moms, he’s jailbait) probably drowned out our obnoxious laughter.

Bella and the bottle: The New Moon Drinking Game.

4. And speaking of TwiNight, I had a little tete-a-tete with a certain member of the Volturi in a hotel suite before the screening. We all know that I am OBVIOUSLY Team Edward/Team Rob, with a certain sexual loyalty to Team Emmett/Team Kellan (especially dark-haired, non-bowlcut Team Kellan), but I have joined a new team: Team Felix/Team Daniel Cudmore. Holy effing nearly 7 feet of hotness. I went in there knowing he’d be attractive, but SWEET JESUS, I was not expecting the level of attractive my wondering eyes fell upon. Yeeesh. I mean. Yeeeeeeesh. And he couldn’t have been nicer! I’ll let you guys know when the full story is running in the paper and link you, after that I’ll be able to post our whole convo for you. I am almost scared to listen to my tape recorder because I know I spent way too much time giggling like a school girl and getting lost in the visible plains of his sculpted chest under his t-shirt. Sigh. Wait, what was I saying? Ah yes, super nice! We joked around a lot and he was really cute about the Eclipse Drinking Game rule question. He took it very seriously (as most cast members do. Seriously, I interview these people about real stuff and they fire off answers but when it comes to drinking game rules, they take their time.) He even put his head down on the table for some serious rule contemplation. In the end, he came up with a short and simple rule that he claims will have everyone on the floor very early in the film. I’ll post it along with the rest of the game this weekend after I’ve done my proper research. (Read: when I have seen the movie several times in a very short period.) And while I don’t often (ever?) post pics of myself on this site (anonymity is key when Twi-blogging), I feel the need to post the sheer hotness that is Dan Cudmore. Especially since I’m pretty sure my legit job will not. PS when I asked if we could take a pic together, he was super nice about it and even offered to hold the camera MySpace style AND posed us in front of the Eclipse poster in the room. I made some comment about with him holding the camera up we were going to look like giants (the man is 6’8″!) and he said, “did you just call me a giant?” I was like, “no, I mean, I did, but I didn’t mean it like that.” Awwwwwkward. But he laughed and was super nice. He also retook the picture a couple times because he kept not liking it, LOL. In the end I promised not to tag him in it. You know, like we’re friends on Facebook. Cause we could be, you never know. Also, in true A fashion, I dropped the cap to my water bottle as I was leaving. Since I was wearing a completely appropriate super-short dress and my highest wedges (to lessen the distance between our faces, natch) bending over to pick up the cap was a total loser moment. There was some bizarre squatting involved. Then he reached out to shake my hand and thank me and I shook his and said, “I have a cap in my hand.” Smooth, A.

It's like a prom pic. But without the formalwear!

Ok, so I’ll report back tomorrow with no actual information on Eclipse, just a regular old post that might mention how freaking awesome it is. Because we already know that much anyway. Ahhhhh!!! So excited!!!

We left our heart in San Diego…

We don’t have to remind you what today is, Twi-hards, do we? It’s Thursday! Which means New Moon-related Comic-Con activity goes down TODAY!! While we’re sadder than Bella on a forest floor that we couldn’t get out there for the Con, we’re uber-excited to start getting deets as they leak onto the ‘net. (In fact, Co-Creator A is considering sitting by her computer all day. Oh wait, she already does that.)

Between never-before-seen clips from New Moon (though we’re still debating how much of this darn movie we want to see before November 20. We need a little surprise at the theater!) and the will-they-or-won’t-they appearance of our fave trio, this is possibly the most exciting Twi-time we’ve had since the DVD release party!

Sure, sure, we’d rather be there. (Did we mention we won’t be attending?) But you know what? Let those other Twi-sites—like our friends at Pattinson Online,  Twilight Lexicon and Letters to Twilight—deal with the ear-piercing shrieks from the fans. Let them handle the shoving crowds and the fainting girls. Let them see RPattz’s beautiful, beautiful face in person and possibly bump into Tay-La’s perfectly sculpted abs…we digress.

Seriously though, you know we’re going to have a lot to say about all the goods coming out of Comic-Con today, so check back to see how we’re handling the whole thing. And share your thoughts on it all, too! 

And don’t forget to follow us on Twitter @AwesomeTM. It will be just like following someone who’s at Comic-Con. Except we’re not.

Gone (Crazy) ’til November

Co-Creator A here, and I think you all know what this post is going to be about. Unless you were visiting family in Denali, you saw last night’s Mtv Movie Awards. I will attempt to say everything I need to do say before making another lap around my house, screaming “OH MY GOD I CAN’T WAIT ‘TIL NOVEMBER!!”

Deep breath.

Ok, firstly. Rob is ridiculously hot. No one can pull of a 1980s royal blue blazer (that may very well have been cut for a woman) like our RPattz. Swoon city! Confession: everytime he was on camera (which was about 8,000 times) I screamed and giggled like a schoolgirl. Seriously, it was like the second coming of the British Invasion in my living room. My dog was practically hiding in the bathtub. I digress.

Second, KStew. Here at ATWIM, we’ve made no secret of our dislike for KStew. However, last night she out KStew-ed herself and it made her kind of endearing. First she SHOCKED us with her complete not-awkwardness during the Best Kiss award. In fact, she looked downright confident while pretending to kiss Rob! (A hint that something really is happening with them??) When she presented the trailer, we welcomed back our old KStew as she shuffled her Converse (seriously, at least wear a pair of Sam & Libby’s!), stared at the floor and looked like she was considering making a break for it when it was her turn to say her lines, which she eventually mumbled to the floorboards. When she dropped her popcorn during her Best Actress acceptance speech, the tide changed for us. Anyone that bumbling and Bella-like has to be our friend. Heck, it looked like something I would have done! I can’t hate on that! When she recovered by saying, “so it was just about as awkward as you thought it would be,” we were sold. We kind of heart her now. 

Ok, enough about the wins (5 in total), time to say what we’re all thinking: The New Moon trailer was perfect!! PERFECT!!! I cannot say enough about how freaking perfect it was. (I think I need to take another screaming lap, BRB.) Phew. Ok, seriously. The CG was not at all cheesy, Tay-La looked amazing (so much so that I dreamt about making out with a 17-year-old, thanks Tay), Edward had no trace of a weird accent…it was all though all the stars aligned! Chris Weitz is definitely my hero right now!

So, now what? We have to wait until November to see the rest of the movie!!!! In the meantime, there’s a good chance I will wear a trail around my living room from all the running and screaming. That is, if I don’t get evicted for all the noise first. 

What did you think of the trailer?? Discuss!!

Happy Birthday, Rob!!!!

We at ATWIM would like to wish Rob Pattinson a very happy 23rd birthday! We know you love him just as much as we do, so we’ve created this handy and very celebratory birthday shot. Replace KStew’s missing face with your own and tell all your friends how much fun you had ushering in the big 2-3 with RPattz! Just remember to mention specifics from your evening to make your story more believable: Say that the two of you chain smoked the night away, while he awkwardly posed for photos with fans, all the while singing Van Morrison songs in your ear and swigging from his bottle of Heineken.
