Let’s go back to 2008, shall we?
About two and a half years ago, I walked into Barnes & Noble at the Mall of Georgia with Drew and Alison. We browsed around for quite some time, eventually separating and going our own way. I went upstairs, not searching for anything in particular. What I came across though was unexpected.
Reidy: "Mom, Cassie and Jamie are reading about vampires!"
Exhibit B (they look so young!)
Instantaneous excitement ensued. Hello, Kristen Stewart!! I’m not going to go on and on about her in this post, because if you read this here little blog, you probably know about my obsession already. I’ll spare you. You’re welcome. So now we have not one, but two things to wait for; Breaking Dawn in August 2008 and Twilight in November 2008. Whew, it was tough.
I’m not going to lie to you and say that we didn’t go buy BD at midnight when it came out. Because we did. We actually hadn’t planned on it, but we were awake, so why not? We hopped in the car and made the thirty minute drive to Borders. Luckily by the time we got there, the crowd had died down considerably. We bought our books, drove back home, and went to bed reading.
I read Breaking Dawn really slow. I didn’t want it to end. I knew it was the last, and I wasn’t ready to say goodbye. I read it so slow. I can still remember where I was when I finished it. It’s kind of like the questions, “Where were you when JFK was shot? On September 11th? When Michael Jackson died?” Seriously, where were you when you finished the Twilight saga? Me, I was sitting on the edge of a hotel bed in Indianapolis, IN. We’d driven up for DCI Finals, it was finals night and we were headed to the stadium. I had ten pages left and I couldn’t leave until I finished. I finished. I loved it. And I was immediately upset at the fact that there would be no more.
Team Edward? (yes, they DO sparkle)
Or Team Jacob (LIES)
I think this is more times than CC has seen the movie all together! Haha!!
CC sent me this yesterday. Do you see my painting in front of the TV? She brought it with her! So...it's like I AM there!
When next we speak, I will have seen it. I’m sure you will have too.
Happy Eclipse-ing everyone!
