TwiNerds....

...that's the best way to describe us. Well...a good way to describe lots of women out there who have read the books and gotten caught up in the phenomenon that is everything Twilight. We love it!! Like Shelley's husband says...it's good to be passionate about something...even if that something is sparkle-y vampires :).

So...we three went to see the Twilight TRILOGY...not just the premiere of Eclipse, but the whole she-bang, Uno, Dos, Tres. It was a great experience...the screaming every time Jacob took his shirt off (which is mostly all thru New Moon), the chick sitting behind us that thought she should narrate all thru Twilight, Shelley and her neck pillow, the staff dressing up as Twilight characters, the bags full of junk food, me almost winning a free tshirt but I couldn't think of the name for the actor playing Victoria!!!!!!! Gah! I KNEW it, but totally had a brain fart.
Like I said before, the theater people dressed up as characters from the movie...the mc-dude was Jasper :). They had trivia and giveaways all thru the movie intermissions. They had these life-size Edward and Jacob figures...who were actually given away to 2 lucky people (not us...cause we're not lucky like that). They had a poll Team Edward vs Team Jacob...and of course Edward won!
The movie itself was really good! I enjoy seeing the books on the big screen...thru all three movies, they really do keep the integrity of the books, and I love that! There were some funny little quips added, such as: "Doesn't that guy ever keep his shirt on?" Or something along those lines...said by Edward, talking about Jacob...and it was SO TRUE...obviously, since we were deaf from all the screaming during New Moon. And then "Let's face it, I'm hotter than you." ...said by Jacob, talking to Edward.

I'm now doubly excited to see Breaking Dawn...so I googled the release date and it looks like November 11, 2011, which is absolutely ridiculous, so I hope that's not true! Over a year to wait?? That's just not nice! And then the 2nd part in 2012...have they not seen that movie?! lol...I'd like to finish the saga before the world ends! (kidding, people, kidding)

As we are TRUE TwiNerds....we made shirts for the occasion!
We are definitely OCD....obsessed with the good stuff! We cut out the letters and appliqued them to the shirt...then hand-stitched them on. The "obsessive Cullen disorder" is done with a Cricut and freezer paper (which I'm now addicted to...freezer paper stencils, more on that to come...).
Then we dazzled it up...why?? Because the Cullens' SPARKLE!
I made us some necklaces as a little souvenier for the night. If you look up at the pic of all 3 of us, you'll see them...if you click on this image below...it prints out very nicely and you can make it into just about anything. I REALLY wanted a shirt that looked like this...but, I'm not quite that talented....yet Ü.
I'm going to see the movie again on Saturday and I'm super excited! It will be interesting to see what I missed due to complete exhaustion at 1am!!
