Whoop, whoop, whoop!

That's the "Nerd"ar going off. And it is me that it is sensing.

A picture says a thousand words.

Damn skippy, I am wearing a "Twilight" shirt. I figure I am old enough to embrace my goofiness, so I wear it proudly.

As I was buying it yesterday, the little young cutie guy at the register asked me if I was going to any of the DVD release parties that were happening at midnight. He told me that Hot Topic and F.Y.E. were having big throwdowns to celebrate the movie's release. I asked him didn't he think they may throw my old ass out of Hot Topic, to which he paused, looked at me...and said, "Well, maybe you should go to the one at F.Y.E." Damn whippersnapper.

But, no, I did not go out at midnight and buy the DVD. The only thing I saw at midnight was the backs of my eyelids. That is what happens when you are almost (shhhh...) 40. Which begs the question...if you are not young enough to stay up past midnight, are you too old to be a Twilighter?

Even if I was so inclined to attend a Twilight party, I highly doubt it would have been at Hot Topic. All of those young'uns with their pierced and tattooed parts, who aren't completely convinced they are not vampires in real life... in the words of my youngest...no fanks.

So, I am headed out in a little while to get my DVD. Although the book was better than the movie by a mile (aren't they all?) I am looking forward to seeing some Rob Pattinson goodness.

Nummy, nummy, nummy.

Being closer to 40 than 39 myself I get where you are coming from!

I don't understand the whole Twillight thing either but I'm an old fart and that young man is young enough to get me arrested. :)

Enjoy the DVD!

I went to the Twilight release party for Breaking Dawn at Borders, which was nice, b/c my friends and I (all moms over 30 thank you very much!!) really enjoyed ourselves. We used the coffee bar there, snagged a table, and looked at celebrity gossip mags until our number was called to get in line for our book. There were a few random scraggly-lookin vampire wannabes, but more nice young giggly teens, many with parents (we saw one sorry looking dad trailing his daughter and her friends and a set of grandparents looking around in amusement!). I would never do Hot Topic!! And my BFF and I proudly wore our shirts! ;)
