Yes, It's True...

I am apparently completely in love with a fictional character. I am also completely embarrassed by this. I don't want to be classified along with all those teenyboppers. That's what my Dad would call them... teenyboppers.

Gypsy (Cam) and I went to the movies yesterday to see "Twilight". There were several cars in the parking lot, but I wasn't scared. There was a small line at the box office window, but I wasn't upset. I purchased our tickets ONLINE. That's right, none of that sold-out business for us. I was kind of worried because Cam hasn't read any of the books at all, I've read all of them. In fact, I read them all in about a month. I bought one every week, then proceeded to read each one in only 2 to 3 days. I guess it's an understatement to say that I found them interesting.

The movie experience went well with only minor irritations. Firstly, there was the girl who, as I stood up to take off my coat, decided she wanted to sit in the aisle we were in and just walked up to me then walked right in front of me with her cell phone attached to her ear. Did she say excuse me? No. Did I? You are damn right. Then, after she finished her conversation, said, "I'm so sorry. I was talking to my boyfriend." Um... who cares? Say excuse me. That's what I wanted to say, but I didn't. I just nodded and Cam said, "It's ok." No one says excuse me anymore. It seems everyone feels entitled to just do whatever. I pointed out to Cam after that when anyone else came down our aisle... every single one of them said excuse me or pardon me. Let me clarify that these were older, not like gray hair or anything, but not teenagers or 20-somethings, that said the excuse me's. The first girl was younger. Hence cell phone attached to ear socket. Any way.... the only other flub-ub was the lady who answered her cell phone. In the middle of the movie. TWICE. Oh no she diiidn't, you say? Oh yes, she did.

I was glad that Cam did indeed enjoy the movie. The whole series is a little "sappy, teenage lovestory-esqe", but I love it anyway.

I left the movie theater wondering where I could get myself an Edward and how soon could I take my husband to see the movie and point out to him the imaginary mans' most attractive features....


  1. Ahh, you crack me up. You shouldn't be embarrased, all the women at our family dinner tonight were on their way to seeing it this week. And, my aunt said she read all books in one weekend.

    I really liked the movie! I'm soo glad you took me with you! I'm gonna buy it when it's released to DVD!

    You and I will always be teenyboppers at heart!

  2. Okay, I don't think any of us believe she really read all of those books in one weekend. Not with as much as she works and has to do. Please.
