Meet me on the Equinox, Meet me Halfway...

New Moon opens in a little over 48 hours!!! Yes, I am a huge Twilight fan. I know there are many opinions out there on the subject, and yes, I know the series was written with the teen audience in mind, but I HEART Twilight and the entire Cullen Gang! I can't believe a year has flown by since last year's premiere of Twilight. The above layout shows photos from the Twilight party I hosted last year. It was amazing how that party brought so many women together -- women of different ages and backgrounds, women who've read vampire novels for years and those of us who swore we'd never be into vampires (raising hand here!), and women who are Team Edward and the few who are Team Jacob. (Yes, I am a little biased on that subject -- "Team Edward all the way, baby!" -- as you can see from my t-shirt in the above photo.) I find it fascinating that one single woman, Stephanie Meyer, created this unbelievable sensation all from a story that came to her in a dream! Amazing...

Have many of you purchased the New Moon soundtrack? I got it a few weeks ago, and initially I thought it really didn't compare to the Twilight soundtrack. I should mention that the Twilight soundtrack is one of my favorite Cd's of all time. Love it! But you know, the New Moon soundtrack has really grown on me in the last week or so. I think the Death Cab for Cutie song "Meet me on the Equinox" is SO rockin', and I especially like the track "Friends" by The Band of Skulls. Now, as I'm listening to it, I'm trying to figure out where in the movie each song will go. If you haven't checked out the soundtrack, I would really recommend it. Just skip over track number 4 "Possibilities" -- it is the creepiest song ever! Truly, so eerie and spooky, which I suppose is just perfect for a movie like this, uh?

I will be seeing the movie this weekend with the same group of friends from last year. It's funny, we were all friends before, but I do feel like we have a special connection because of Twilight. I mean, after all, who else would understand our conversations that have sentences that go something like this: "Man, it certainly looks like Forks around here today. Will the rain ever stop?" or "Gee, I wish my husband sparkled like Edward..." or even "Gosh, you must have been really late for school this morning -- We saw you driving like a Cullen!" It's great to have friends that GET IT (and coincidentally, they also GET scrapbooking, too! Pretty cool, uh?) Ah, the thought of girls night out, cocktails and seeing the gorgeous Edward Cullen is just intoxicating! Have fun seeing the movie and the great vampire eye candy! :)

I have to admit that I read only the first book and even didn't see the movie. To be honest it is too scary for me :) But my 11 years old daughter cant wait to see the New Moon.

Thanks for visiting my blog! I wish I knew you! No one I know will go with me to see New Moon! I was one of those who didn't start reading the series until the movie was being made, but I loved the books! Actually, New Moon was my least favorite just because she was so depressed for half the book. :) Have fun on Saturday!

I am really going to have to read these! I'm waiting for my daughter to be old enough to enjoy them..but I'm going to have to give in and just go get them I think.

I have my tickets for a 12:02 show tonight!! I can't wait! I also bought the soundtrack because I fell in love with the Twilight soundtrack, too.

I haven't seen them yet, but I hear a lot about them. I am a high school teacher and it is the favorite conversation of most of the girls in my classes.....

Enjoy the movie! Strangely, Twilight is one series that I just haven't ventured into yet. Guess I just don't want to make room in my life for one more obsession:) I really like your top photo in your right sidebar.

I've never read the book or seen the movie, but I have a few friends who are crazy for Twilight! If you visit my blog, you can click on Michelle Finn in my right sidebar under Fabulous Blogs and you will see what I mean...she's in love with the Twilight series!!! Oh and by the way, I'm stopping by from the Holidays in Hand class. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving! ~ Debra
