It’s Almost Time!!!

In less then 7 hours from now… I will be sitting in a blackened theatre, with my Sis Pam and my BFF Terry and about 100 oogling females. Tonight, we see Twilight at 9PM, and New Moon directly after at the stroke of midnight.

I am not one who normally goes to midnight showings… I don’t even like to catch a new flick within the first couple of weeks of it’s opening. But, this is different. I don’t get to go out too often, and as far as going to the movies? Well my friends, Twilight was the last movie I saw at the theatre! Hello??? That was like, a year ago! I needed this little bit of Alison time. Things have been pretty stressful around here, and what better way to blow off some steam then to see a bunch of vampires? Well I suppose I could think of a couple of other things that would be better… but we won’t go there. ;}

So the three of us will ride off in to the night, 2 of us decked out in some of our finest vampy attire, whilst our adrenaline pulses through us like heroine. We will be giddy like 4 year olds. Possibly obnoxious like 12 year olds. Definitely not acting our ages. but who cares? A movie is a place where you are meant to lose yourself. To fall in to an alternate reality. To dream about the impossible (wait… you mean there might not really be an Edward Cullen?!?!? Bah!). We are going to have a BLAST!!!

Yes, photos will be taken. For those of you who are avid readers of either my blog or TTIC’S, you know that I am issuing a special scrapbook challenge specifically for the release of New Moon. Bring your camera!!!!! Take a ton of silly and embarrassing photos of your friends. Make SURE there are photos of YOU too!!!

And tomorrow, be sure to check out both of the fang-tastic blog hops I will be in. One of course is for Twilight Tuesday. The other is for the exciting Artful INKables. Both are huge (TTIC has over 50 participants!!!). Both are exciting! Both have blog candy!

And then, it’s time to dish. Chat about the good the bad and the ugly (?) of this newest installment of the Twilight Saga. I cannot wait to rant and rave for months on end about it. Until then… see you on the other side of the New Moon!!!
