I just went around the apartment (and out to the parking lot) to take pictures of all our Twilight merch, and I will just say that I’m going to have to do something special for Jeremy when he gets home, like spend all day making his favorite meal or something because I just realized exactly how tolerant he is of me and this Twilight obsession I have going on. As you will see with this post, he is really, REALLY indulgent of me.
Also, please no emails or comments signifying your concern for me after seeing all the stuff I’ve been hoarding. I know, ok? I know I’m a total weirdo. I need Twilight rehab, but if there even was such a thing, I wouldn’t go. If loving Twilight so much is wrong, I don’t want to be right! (Sorry if some of these are blurry, I have a crap camera). This is one of the three Twilight posters in our living room. The things hanging down from the ends are the Twilight dog tag necklaces from Wal Mart that I practically went through hell and back to try to get. Jessie and I are planning on wearing these to the midnight showing of New Moon in November. Jeremy doesn’t think so now, but he will be wearing one too.
Poster number 2 in the living room
This is the third poster we have, incidentally the first one we bought. It’s sharing the wall with one of Jeremy’s Beatles posters. See? We can live together in *singing* haarmonnyyyy! Funny story, my mom came over not too long ago and scoffed, “What are all these Beatles posters doing in here?” like our entire apartment should be just Twilight. Heaven forbid I actually allow Jeremy to display his things in our apartment. Oh, my mom. She’s so silly.
Next, we move into our closet sized kitchen. Twilight even managed to find it’s way in here too. I was at another Wal Mart in our area (not the one in our town, nothing Twilight related in that hell hole) and saw these in the dollar aisle. Of course I had to get all three. They’re collectibles! I haven’t even opened them to try the candy inside. I’m curious to see if the hearts are actually sparkly.
Then there is the refrigerator. As soon as I saw the magnet set at Hot Topic, I had to have it. I still think that was a cute idea, although they need to work on the quality. I nearly tore that Twilight text logo to pieces trying to remove it from the packaging. Hey, wait? What is Edward looking at with such smoldering, sexy intensity? Who is that hot beautiful beotch that Edward can’t take his eyes off of? Oh, yeah. That’s me! (and that’s one of my senior portraits. I don’t usually pose for pictures like that, in case you were wondering) I think you’re pretty hot too, Edward. In fact…I-
Sorry, I got carried away. In a way, having Edward on my fridge is a good thing. I go in to superfluously snack and Edward is there to distract me. Edward Cullen is my diet plan!
Ok, moving on. Lets head down the hall. We used to just have that Monet print. Classy and cultured, right? Well, it was missing some Twilight, so I took care of that. Now it’s perfect.
On to the bedroom. This is where the magic happens (unneccesary MTV Cribs refrence!) Jeremy was even so gracious to even allow Twilight to permeate here too. Super sweet (and smart) of him. This is my favorite Twilight item in the house. It’s the giant 5 ft (that’s 10 inches taller than me!) Edward Cullen poster. This is only available at certain Blockbuster stores, and luckily I found it at our local store on first try. I absolutely adore it. Jeremy even helped me hang it up! It fits in with the bedroom since our decorating “theme” in there is black and white. Plus, I was already picturing him in there enough (oh snap!), so I’m glad we made that happen.
This is my bedside table. That GQ cover is gorgeous and I have the interview Rob did behind the cover in that frame too. The funky looking CD is the Twilight movie score soundtrack (thanks Jessie!) and under it is the Twilight:Director’s Notebook (again, thanks Jessie!). The prints on the wall are pencil drawings of New Orleans (my family is Cajun) except for the eye drawing. I drew that in high school art class.
I really need to change my flowers, huh? I’m trying to keep up with that. Now, lets step outside to head downstairs. On the way to the front door, this is what we see every day. Those are the party favors I got during the Twilight DVD release party at Hot Topic in March. I promise, a post with videos and pictures from that night is coming soon. I’m having issues uploading the videos to you tube (i.e, I can’t do it), but stay tuned because that post is coming very soon.
Also, ignore the bratty message Jeremy scrawled on our message board before he left. He lashes out any way he can, poor guy.
On to Jeremy’s truck, parked downstairs. This is the full proof of his love for me, that all the world gets to see as we drive around. That’s right. We represent every where we freakin’ go. Apparently though, Jeremy has caught some flack for these stickers at his job. When the Team Edward one was pretty new, his boss came in to the office and said, “You know what Jeremy? Team Jacob. Team. Jacob.” Jeremy was a little confused until he remembered. It’s a running joke among his coworkers, which I think Jeremy is pretty cool about. Can I just say again that I feel so lucky to have someone who loves me so much?
Then, we have all the little things that migrate around the apartment as I use and move them. These are the things I use frequently. First, because it’s the most important, the very laptop I’m typing on now. It’s a Dell Mini 9, and it’s so tiny I can take it anywhere. I even use this thing in the bathtub (I’m talented that way). I haven’t had this thing very long, but I feel naked without it. It keeps me connected to the Twilight fandom (and my other real life family and friends too, ya know) The stickers came from Hot Topic and so did the Twilight band-aids. Jessie bought the band-aids and let me have a few for decoration. I owe her a lot (Love you girl!)
Here is my laptop background image, which I think you’ll find as sexy as I do. In case you can’t read the print at the bottom, it says, “Hey girl, are you thinking of me when you’re with him?” It’s one of the many examples of Rob Porn, which is featured at Letters to Rob and many other places on my blog roll. I don’t remember the exact place where I got this one from, but if you let me know I will credit you.
These are my keys. They are very loud. I can’t sneak up on anyone with these. The menacing black thing on my key chain is the holder from my mace. Jump back, pervs. I’m armed. As I was taking that picture, Kitty came over to investigate.
My books and movies are just waiting around to be read/watched again. I have two copies of the movie. One from the Hot Topic party, and the other from Target so I could have that extra disc of goodies. When Jeremy and I finally join the rest of civilization and get an HD TV, we will get another copy of Twilight in Blu Ray. I’m working on building my book collection up again. It’s smart to have a set for personal use, and another for loaning to friends who haven’t been indoctrinated yet. Finally, the last thing for this post is someone the regular readers have been introduced to before. In a horrible accident, I ended up with Jessie’s Mini Edward along with mine, and they’ve been making friends until I can get him back to her.
Yeah, they’re besties.
Y’all, this isn’t even all my Twilight shiz. I didn’t even take pictures of all my T shirts or bags or buttons. This post will be continued. Give me a chance to build up my arsenal. I will certainly be adding to my collection in the next few months, especially since I’ve been doing lots of browsing on Etsy and E Bay.
Let us know in the comments, what is your favorite piece of Twilight merch? Anything you’re lusting after hardcore? Are you waiting on something special to hit stores?
