Twilight, Loved it!

Ok so here I go finally posting. It has been crazy the last three weeks or so. Brett got sick and then Ryan got sick and then Brett got sick once again. So needless to say I got no sleep. But finally the got better and Ryan went back to school! Then finally after such a long wait, it was time to see Twilight. I had been waiting for this since I had found out that they were making a movie. I got to go to the midnight showing with one of my best friends Jenny. When

she went to pick up our tickets, the guy let her know that it was sold out and it would be wise to get there at least 2 hours early. He also said that others said they were going to be there at 7 to start lining up. So at 6:30 her and I went out to dinner. She wore her Edward Cullen shirt. While we were at dinner she had me take her picture and make sure we got the full shirt. After it was around 7:30 and I knew I was going to need some caffeine so we ran to 7 11 and I got a Code red. I figured that would keep me up. Then we got to the theater and we were the 4th and 5th in line. So we knew we were going to to get the seats we wanted. about 10 minutes later another 4 people showed up and that was it for the crazy people who got there so early. Jenny and I played Phase 10 and chatted. That was fun. It had been over a year since her and I had gotten together with no children. About 9 or so more people started so show. And when it came time for the movie to start the theater was full of 400 hundred people, most were women, few men and even a few young grade school girls, which I don't agree with but that is just me. I didn't go into the movie with high expectations and I think that is why I loved it so much. I had read and watched a lot of interviews so I knew there were things in movie that they added or changed. I knew that they were not going to be able to put everything in the movie, but I feel like they did a great job. I laughed more than I expected and I didn't cry, although I wanted to a a few parts! But overall I think the main thing they got right was Robert and Kristen. They had incredible chemistry which, for me, the main part of this series. So overall I was very pleased. We got home about 2:30ish and I couldn't go to sleep until 3. I then had to get up and get ready and get Ryan to school, so I was going on about 3 1/2 hours of sleep, but it was so worth it. Then I was lucky enough to go Friday night with another one of my best friends Denise. We left at 5:30 cause I was told that it was sold out also. But we only got there about 1 hour before the movie started. That was a lot of fun also. I hadn't seen Denise for quite some time and I really enjoyed the time we spent together. Also I liked the movie even more the 2nd time around and I would go again.! Kinda sad I know.
