:: New Moon Mania ::

Thursday night was a day that I had been waiting for since the summer when I first read the Twilight series. Ask anybody that knows me well and they will tell you I simply do not read romance/fantasy books, ever. The only reason I ended up with Twilight in my hands was because I was desperate to have something to read for the rest of our holiday and borrowed it from a friend. Long story short I was quickly hooked and could barely wait for New Moon to come out. I had started re-reading Twilight a couple weeks ago and finished in time to pick up New Moon and refresh myself. I also borrowed the Twilight movie from my friend Megan (to the left of me in the picture) and watched it not once, but twice this past week.
We were lucky enough to get tickets for the sneak preview! Megan called me on Tuesday morning and asked if I wanted a "Team Edward" shirt. I asked her if she was getting one and with a laugh we both decided we would do it.
I left early on Thursday evening to give myself lots of time to get there in the torrential down pour and also to get a few errands done. I arrived at the theater at 7:00 and met Megan and her group of co-workers in line. Apparently one of the girls had paid her teenage brother to get in line at 1:00 in the afternoon to hold a good spot in line for us and thanks to him we were the second group in line.
:: Team Edward :: Keep in mind that the youngest lady in this group was me at 25 :)
They let us in at 9:00ish and at 10:00 the lights went down and the screaming started. I was really worried that silly teenagers would scream during the movie and ruin it for me but surprisingly that didn't happen.
By the time the last scene rolled around, I could hardly breathe and then, it was over. Black screen and gasping all around the theater.
We had a ridiculously good time laughing and acting like we were a lot younger than we are!
The movie? Loved it......of course the book was way better but they followed the story line really well and even quoted the book verbatim a handful of times.
Not going to lie, I'll probably watch it in the theater again ;)
