Today my inner nerd is coming out. If you have been reading my blogs then you already know that I am a Twilight fan. The cat is out of the bag and now I will share with you my best Twilight story thus far.
I must admit. I am a band waggon fan. I did not read the books before the movie came out and I did not watch the movie until it was on DVD. I thought it was going to absolutely stupid but after I watched it the first time, it stayed on the rest of the night.
Needless to say, I was hooked.
When October rolled around I had already read all of the books and was more than ready for New Moon, the second one, to come out in theatre.
Being the Twihard that I am, I did some research and found out that some of the cast would be doing a mall tour and they were coming right here to Houston.
Of course it didn't say which part of the cast and of course I wanted it to be Edward, Bella, and Jacob but I knew it would probably not be them.
This was the deal. You had to be one of the first 75 people in Nordstroms and spend $75 on Twilight merchandise or you could be the first 500 at Hot Topic and spend $25 on merchandise.
I chose Nordstroms because there you got to meet them, take a picture with them, and get their autograph. At Hot Topic you only got their autograph.
The knowledgeable person that I am knew that I would have to be in line the night before and sure enough when I got there there was already a line. I was about the 40th person in line for Nordstroms, got a wrist band, and had a guaranteed spot. Now I had to sit in this closed off area for us 75 people watch Twilight and Transformers all night, take Twilight trivia quizzes and make new twihard fans.
I warned y'all before. I am a nerd.
When 7:00 am rolled around they brought us donuts and coffee and at 8:00 they let us loose in the store.
They also announced that it would be two werewolves that we wold meet. Alex Meraz (Paul) and Kiowa Gordon (Embry).
May I add that all of the Hot Topic people did not get movies or food. Boo-yah.
This is the shirt I bought...
this is from when boyfriend and I went to Breaking Dawn Part 1 at midnight.
I also bought a team Jacob necklace and an Edward keychain. Yes, I played both sides. Now I am solely Team Edward.
After we bought our merchandise We got our passes to come back and meet the stars.
The day of the event I came back super early and super eager. I actually was the 2nd person in line.
And then it was my turn...
One of the best moments of my life. I was actually on TV for this too.
The link is here.
The first video I am at the 2:00 mark and the 2nd I am around the :49 mark. Look for my black and white shirt.
Alex, the one in the black jacket actually said he liked my necklace. Thanks bro!
After we met them there was a Q&A session that I got first row for.
This picture makes me so mad. They were looking right at me!
This is a story that shows patience pays off. There was alot of lines and alot of waiting and sitting but it was well worth it.
And this is why I call this story "The day I hung with some werewolves."
Always a Twihard.
This week I will be back on track guys and all of the stuff I have been promising will be coming this week. Promises. And I promise not to break them!
