Twilight

Okay... so I am not a Twihard or whatever they call those crazy people who are obessed with the Twilight Series by Stephenie Meyer. I did REALLY enjoy the books a couple years ago and introduced them to my in-laws.
I had NO IDEA what I was doing to myself with that small act. First my Sister-in-Law read them and passed them on to my mother-in-laws (don't ask... it's complicated). My MILs are pretty into it and we actually WENT to Forks on a road trip last September for a day... me dragging my 6-month-old baby in a minivan with 5 other people (2 MILs, 1 SIL & 2 neices). See below picture.
But no matter... it was fun and I don't do a lot of things with them outside of family get togethers, so it was nice. THEN... I have no idea what happened, but my SIL has turned into a CRAZY Twilighter! She wanted us all to go to the midnight showing of the New Moon movie, but I said I had to work (even though I didn't). I never even made it to the theater to see it! Then she went to our local mall and stood in line to get a picture with the guy who plays Dr. Cullen in the movie for hours and paid $25 for the picture! Anyway... she's just obessed. So when she asked me to come to the midnight showing of Eclipse, I knew I should go. I would have just felt bad lying again... so I said I would go.

Little did I know what I was getting myself into. Not only are we going to see Eclipse at midnight tonight, but the theater is showing Twilight and New Moon BEFORE midnight and we're going to see ALL THREE! I honestly think I might die. I know it will be fun, but SIX HOURS? I think I'm more worried about all the other people who will be there like my SIL - the crazies! Anyway... I will be leaving my house at 2:30 in the afternoon to attend these things (because of course we have to get there early because ALL the showing are SOLD OUT and we have to get a seat!).

Pray for me... hopefully I'll be back to post tomorrow and not crushed by a mob of Twihards!

Didn't we all kind of fall into the Twilight Series unintentionally? I know I did! I certainly didn't mean to become as engrossed in the books as I did! Have fun at the movie!
Anyway I'm your newest follower and I sure would welcome you with open arms over at my place, AGalNeeds...! Come on over!
