All right...I will freely admit that since last fall I have had a (huge?) obsession with all things Twilight. I've read the book series a few times, seen the movie 4 times at the theater, have both soundtracks on my iPod, visit several Twilight-themed blogs and Web sites daily, and am a proud owner of the "Pocket Edward".
And so...today was THE day. March 21...the release date of the Twilight DVD. Never in my life have I: (1) been so excited about a DVD, (2) arrived at a store BEFORE it opened in order to get a copy of said DVD, and (3) wanted to lock myself away in a quiet room so I could watch all 3 discs tonight. Alone.
That being said...these are just a few of the crazy things I've done in the past 24 hours that are related to Twilight:
1. Went with my sister to buy decorations for our Twilight viewing party -- decorations include: plastic red apples, a "red carpet" for our guest to walk, a director's clapboard, movie themed decorations, and red and black M&Ms.
2. Attended the local Border's Twilight Midnight release party...if only for about 20 minutes. We came, we saw, we were surrounded by too many crazy girls and so we left. I will state for the record however, that we were NOT the oldest people in the crowd. Yes, there were many teens in attendance, but also a good number of 30-somethings...all grabbing lots of Twilight related things to purchase. I was thisclose to buying a very cool Twilight tote bag...but couldn't bring myself to pay $25 for it.
3. And this morning, at 7:45 a.m., I arrived at my local Target store and sat in the car w/ my sister and her friend Shannon until 7:58 a.m. when all the other women who were waiting in their cars started descending on the front doors of Target. About 20 crazy Twilighters stood outside the doors (annoyed Target employee: "If you stand in front of the doors they will NOT open. Back up!") and when the doors were opened we quickly made our way to the DVD/Blue-ray display (Target employee: "It's at Aisle 15"). [I would like to add that I did NOT run...I walked calmly and left the running to the tweens....].
So there you have it...the crazy things I will do for my Twilight obsession. And now, if you'll excuse me, I have to go download the movie to my iPod.
Oh. My. Edward.
