I have always imagined Stephenie Meyer on weekends...wearing her *Twicrap (definition below) and watching movies with the kids. Occasionally sneaking to Target and the greek salad place with her "I dream of Edward Cullen" shirt on. Disguised with big sunglasses on. Is this your vision of a typical Saturday with Steph? Don't lie.
You know she must own every Twilight thing under the sun. I personally have a Twilight closet. And if I have a closet...what kind of room would Steph have with all kinds of custom twi-goodies??
Wait till you hear...shocked, I tell ya, I was shocked with what she said. BUT we do know one thing that is in her office....our Kanye West card! She said she was getting it framed for her desk!! And before you ask...yes we freaked out silently when she said that and then did this!
What is Stephenie's family joke!?! A t-shirt donning a shirtless Jacob Black! H-I-L-A-R-I-O-U-S especially since Steph has three brothers and only 2 sisters.
Does Stephenie actually say "Edward body pillow?" AKA the Edward manillow!!!! (It never gets old. Truth.)
LTT: So what have you been given where you’re, like, “Oh! Okay…that’s interesting…”
SM: What’s the weirdest thing I’ve been given? I been given some really amazing stuff, because someone gave me a quilt that…….I mean, I don’t have words. It’s amazing. Each square was made by someone different. And they depict scenes from different scenes from the book. And it’s lovely. Someone knitted a giant Twilight book cover with the hand and the apple. It’s a bed-size blanket. And it’s amazing. That took a lot of effort!
Meghan: The drum?
SM: Oh, the drum….that was amazing. That’s one of my
favorite things. From the Quileute Nation, they sent me a drum, and I guess part of the package was “you have to make your first drum,” and it was somebody’s first drum that they had made, and it’s really beautiful. There’s one very similar to it hanging in Emily’s house. That was really cool. But they want things that are funny that I’ve gotten.
Meghan: Oh, funny! Well…
SM: I’m trying to remember…Something like, “Edward would
wait” and had a picture of Edward and things like that. And those are like, oh, man! The absolute embarrassment!
Kallie (TST): I remember last year at the premiere, there was a girl
who had Twilight, but then you turned it around and I guess it said “vampire”?
SM: I mean you gotta give her points. That’s kinda cool.
Nikki (LTT): What about
the one that’s, like, Edward’s head, but he had, like, huge eyes.
(more chatter about various Twilight gifts and “30 Rock” TV
show & EDWARD MANILLOW)
SM: Yeah, there’s some stuff out there, especially the non-sanctioned stuff.
Alison (twifans): Do you have a room that you put all of the stuff in? Do you have a Twilight room?
SM: I have a Twilight storage shed. We have 3 storage sheds. They give me all of the official merchandise too. If you try and think, there are people who want this, you know, maybe I’ll give it to someone…
Meghan: You guys are getting some of it!
SM: For Christmas, we always do a White Elephant exchange in
my family. Kinda like a good joke. It’s like, who can get the best thing, right? I have a lot of brothers, so I got, like, the extra large Jacob with no shirt on.
*Twicrap: Twilight merchandise that is coveted by Twifans/Twihards but not appreciated by a civilian.
