This is how the Saga will end

We're several hundred days away from the release of the first part of Breaking Dawn. I imagine that this, right now, it was it's going to feel like when the entire Saga is done. It's a bit... boring in the fandom right now.

PhotobucketI can't remember what I did pre-Twilight. I read a lot of different books than I do now and I think I watched a lot more television. I don't watch any now and I read a lot of Twilight smut fan fiction.

Anyway, I joined a Twilight forum and I'm chatting with other Twilighters. We share Rob porn pictures, we joke, and right now for the summer, we're banding together to loose some weight. I've never met these ladies but they encourage me to eat healthier and get outside and exercise.

I also got addicted to another book series complete with fan sites, podcasts, fan art, fan fics, etc. What am I reading? The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. This is a great series and I'm anxiously counting down the the third, and last book, in the series.

I think, when all is said and done and I still feel like blogging, I'll probably turn this into a Twilight fan fiction blog because I love it so much =) If you haven't read any or maybe you have and didn't like it, I highly recommend you give it a (second) chance. Head over to my fan fiction links on the right (--->) and find a story that strikes your fancy and tell me how you like it. I love talking about fan fics.

My Eclipse movie review

This is going to be very long and very picture heavy. I'm putting it all after the jump.

Basically, I enjoyed it. I give it 4 out of 5. It was exactly what I expected to see so I didn't leave the theater gasping muttering ohmygodohmygod. I had very very high standards and the movie met all of them. It had all of the and important parts of the book and then some. I think that this movie could stand on its own. Non-Twilight fans won't leave the theater that it was a complete waste of time.

After the jump is really detailed re-cap and review of the movie.

Rob and Kristen at the AMC in LA

This 4th of July weekend, several cast members showed up to theaters across America to say hello to the fans and introducing Eclipse. I was fortunate enough to attend one of these...

Ok, so it's hard to contain myself even hours later but literally a few hours ago after watching Eclipse in IMAX, Rob and Kristen walked into the theater. We knew before hand that "talent" would be at our theater but we didn't know who would show up. I was thinking Peter, Charlie and/or Jackson. Never in my wildest dreams would I think that Rob and Kristen would show up. But they did!

Cue freak out.

It's so crazy how this never gets easier with practice. I've seen them three times before but adrenaline is funny, it keeps flowin'. I'm chanting "ohmygod ohmygod" the entire time and panting. I have my video camera in one hand and my still camera in my other hand just holding them up and snapping photos every second. They say hello, thanks for making Eclipse have such a great weekend, and bye. There were there a total of approximately 2 minutes. I'm shaking for the next 15, still freaking out.

There was theater security, Summit security, and personal security (Rob doesn't go anywhere with out Dean). We could tell which way they left by the mob of security guards blocking an exit.

I'd have awesome pictures and video if I wasn't such an epic failure. My video camera didn't have its memory card (so I was holding it up for nothing) and my still camera didn't have the flash on so 80% of the photos I took are trashed. I managed to take 6 ok-ish ones. Still, I'm so thankful for a room full of other fans who managed to not be such big failures as I am. New pictures and videos are popping up all over the place.

To see these, I recommend you heading over to Robert Pattinson Life. I think they hire minions or something =D
