It's taking over

Twilight has taken over my town, the high school, the internet, the television, the radio, twitter and my life. I am anxiously awaiting Friday's premiere...and there are millions like me.

I bought my tickets yesterday - Friday @ 8PM I will be staring at Twilight on the big screen. ~swoon~

They were talking on the radio this morning about the sold out midnight shows - more than 500 showings are already SOLD OUT! Fandango reports that 86% of the tickets they are selling are just for Twilight. That's H-U-G-E!

Unfortunately I will have to wait an additional 8 hours to see it, but there was no way in hell S was going to see this movie at midnight. It's okay. He doesn't get it.

There are dozens of websites dedicated to nothing but Twilight...these are a few of the more interesting ones:

Custom Scents Online - selling scents of Twilight (Spoiler Alert! If you haven't read all 4 published books - DO NOT go here!)
Patrice Wright's Etsy shop - Twilight inspired bookmarks
Chasing the Frog - One of a billion sites selling Twilight shirts
Twilight Teez - Sells shirts, hoodies and replica of Bella's bracelet.
Designs by Laurie - Twilight shoes

If you are looking for Twilight enhanced jewelry go no further than Etsy since searching for "Twilight" brings up 162 pages. They even have something called Glimmer mist. Guess it's for when you want to add a little sparkle to your favorite guy.

I told you about two Twilight giveaways here but if you want the real scoop on this movie go visit Julie. That lucky lady got to go to a special screening for the Cast & Crew and let's just say I'm green with envy.

Am I the only one that still gets chills watching the movie trailer?

Do you ever wonder where the fan base is coming from? I haven't read the books, but I've heard so much about it!

I got my tickets for 12:01 Friday morning. I'll twitter you all about it after I get out!

Okay, I won't do that...

I'm halfway through book one and it's good, but I have to say I'm still not getting the hype. We'll see what I think when I'm done with the first book...

I wish I knew people that were excited about it. Besides me. And my daughter. We have decided to go to the 10am show on Friday. And it's only $6!

Shannon said...

Oh, man! I am getting so excited!

Is it Friday yet?!?!!???!?!

I am right with you on this one. We have a big group of girls going, ranging in age from 15 to 53. Isn't that crazy? I hope it lives up to all the expectations. I have a feeling it will. And that I will want to see it again and again, then buy it when it comes out on DVD.
