My occupational therapist is the best:
So, I love Micah's occupational therapist not only because she has helped us solve the Mystery of Micah, but also because she is just so cool. I love chatting with her. She and I both are crazy about the Twilight series, and this last Wednesday, she asked me if I was going to the movie on the 21st. I said, "Naw, I can't afford the tickets. I'll have to wait until next paycheck, maybe." Later that night, she shows up on my doorstep with two movie ticket vouchers. I guess her hubby gets a lot of free movie vouchers from the Edwards Cinema from his work. Can you believe how sweet that was? So Ben went and got us tickets. I thought he'd get us tickets to go to it last night, but he got tickets for the 12:30 showing on Thursday night/Friday morning!!
And it was a BLAST. (Thanks, Mom, for giving up your sleep and comfort to come baby-sit/sleep uncomfortably on our couch for a couple of hours.) There is just something about die-hards getting together at these kinds of things. We were all laughing so hard at the part where Edward first catches a whiff of Bella. When we first caught a glimpse of Jacob Black, there was an audible gasp from everyone in the audience (he is CUTE). We all growled at Jessica. I could hear several squeals when Edward and Bella first kissed. Tons of people came in t-shirts they had bought or made, and I even saw a teenaged dude dressed as Rosalie. Not kidding!!
I was at work for a couple of hours on Thursday evening, and while I scanned, I was looking at Twilight t-shirts online and fantasizing about which t-shirt I would have worn to the premiere, if I could have afforded one.
And Blogger is being a brat and not uploading the pictures of the shirts correctly, but really, they're shirts with words on them, so I'm going to tell you my favorites:
Forks, Wa. It Sprinkles so You Don't Sparkle.
Jacob Black, I Want to La Push You Off a Cliff! [That one made me think of Nat and Pete. They have had many conversations about how they hate Jacob, which has brought some confusion into their house, as their listening son, Jakob, thought they were talking about him!]
Yes, I'm a Mom. Yes, I've Read Twilight. Yes, I Love Edward. (Don't Tell My Husband.)
A Sparkly Man From Forks Told Me I Smell Good. [A bunch of my co-workers ordered those and wore them to the midnight premiere.]
Meanwhile, in a Town Named Spoons...
Cedward: So, Aveda Kedavra Just Turns You Into a Really Hot Vampire? Great Plan, Voldy.
So funny. I thought my fellow Twi-Hards would appreciate those. As my friend Patty would say, as far as the movie goes, I "la-hoved it." I'm wanting to see it again and again. I am such an addict. This is why I need to stay away from the books for awhile. I get so wrapped up in stuff like this, and then normal life seems really depressing. I'm such a weirdo.
