Twilight Apoplexy

This is so silly, but I just watched a Twilight teaser on MTV.com and I’m sooooooooo excited for this movie! Almost as excited as I am to read Breaking Dawn when it comes out! I know a lot of people have criticisms about Twilight, and Bella, and the “Stephenie Meyer Hype” but it doesn’t change the fact that the books somehow tethered my emotions when I read them, and the movie looks like it’s going to do the same. 

My only problem is, who do I go see this with??? My husband is out – doesn’t like vampires, and like movies LESS. But I can’t just go with anyone. I think I need to see it with someone who has also read the books and loves them, and wants to do heavy comparisons and rehashing upon leaving the theater. ideally, I need a sixteen year-old girl. But I don’t have one! Not even close. One of my BFFs would go with me (and one might even read the books first), but they’re 2,000 miles away – a minor problem.

Guess I have until 12/12 to think about it. But I might just go alone. Nothing is worse than going to a movie you are crawling out of your skin to see – with the wrong person. It’ll be me in the theater – with 300 or so other Edward-salivating young girls. I’m 27. Maybe vampires can offer eternal youth… šŸ™‚
