Go ahead and call me a loser, but I saw you there too!


Yeah, so I went to the Breaking Dawn release party. So?? I HAD to go. Someone had to take my 14 year old sister... Right?
The party was actually pretty lame-o. There was some guy there that was suppose to be Edward. Yeah- if that's Edward then he NEEDS Bella to protect HIM. Holy wimp. And then there was a guy that I was like, "Who's he suppose to be? James?" because he was white and walking around yelling "Bella!? Where are you!?!" and was all angry. Um, ok- he was suppose to be Jacob. Whaaa?? He was so not my 6'8", 108.9 degrees of pure hottness, werewolf of a man! I didn't even bother to take a pic with him. We didn't stick around til midnite because we both pre-ordered our book from Overstock.com. It was way cheaper, so... I'm all about cheap. My book still isn't here and if it's not here tomorrow I'm going to the store so I can read it before I get to Portland on Friday afternoon!
Here are the highlites:

Ali and me before we left. I had on my "Edward Who?" button.
Ali took the personality quiz and was equally Bella, Jacob and Edward.
She had a bracelet made to represent her Love-Triangle personality.
I was Bella, which I said I would be from the beginning because I give "Mom-ish" answers. If I had changed the 2 that I was undecided about I would have been Jacob.
For the record I am so NOT Bella.

Ali and Wimpy EdwardThis is "Alice" aka a Magic 8 ball. I asked if Jacob would imprint on Angela.Then I had Ali ask if Bella would be changed out of necessity rather than choice. I'm thinking Alice was a little off just from the spoilers I've read, but I won't tell the answers we received.

Anyway.... I thought the nite was fun and I am going crazy waiting for my book. I think it's funny how popular the whole series has gotten considering when I read & posted about it most of my bloggy friends had never heard of Twilight! :)

And just a reminder: Jacob is mine. (Not weirdo Jacob at the book release party- the real Jacob. And by "real" I mean the fictional character in the book.)

Tori :) said...

Lonely Paul- Um, hi.

Lotto- Do you have a crush on me? You leave me random comments that have nothing to do with my post and a lot of time aren't in English. But then you're offended when I delete them...

Forksgirl - Hey!!! Welcome!

Yvonne said...

You know I didn't have a clue what Twilight was until I started blogging ; )

Hope you get your book soon.

Camille said...

Hey, I'm just delurking here. I might have left a comment before, I don't remember, but I love your fun posts and randomness.
Anyway, I went to a BD release party too. It was lame and my friends and I were almost the oldest ones there. These two guys were dressed up as random vampires and they went screaming down the mall courtyard and one of them tripped and fell. I have to admit it was pretty funny. That was the highlight of the night, other than getting the book, of course. I hope you get yours soon. It's so great! (sorry for such a long comment!)

I went to a midnight release party because I know myself well enough to realize that even though I ordered the book in February, I wouldn't be able to wait the four whole days after the releasing for it to get here. So now I have two copies. I think one is headed for the library. I'd loan it to you if we were still neighbors.

OH! The employees at B&N all had white makeup and FANG marks. Good glory. Read the dumb books, people!

That Edward is stupid. Everyone knows Edward doesn't wear Jedi Knight clothes...and he doesn't get meddy when he hunts. Psh.

As for the midnight release parties...I had to go. If I didn't it would have been blasphemous. Too bad I hated it...so bad. And I had to buy a second book because mine didn't come in.

Lauren said...

Mebby=Messy...aparently.

swampbaby said...

In case you can't wait, it is $12.95 at Costco. And you'll have to read it because from what I've read it sounds like most people don't like it and that it didn't even seem like she was the one writing it. Hope not!

swampbaby said...

I meant to write "you'll have to read it and let me know what you think"...since I won't get to read it until I bum it off somebody.

Millie said...

Breaking Dawn was so great! Thanks for sucking me in!!!! :)

Jacob who?

Millie said...

P.S. That wimpy Edward looked suspiciously like a Jedi-wannabe.

Suzanne said...

Tori, you are the coolest big sister ever! And yeah, Edward looks wimpy. And why is he dressed like Anakin Skywalker??? :D I hope you get your book in time!

Suzanne said...

See I'm not the only one who thinks he looks like a Star Wars character! :D

Mindi said...

i love that you went--you took one for the team, right?

btw, that post about bella's whining has got to be one of my all time favorites--i told it to my non-blogging buddies last sunday on our ride home from park city before we started reading breaking dawn outloud all the way home, and they all concurred. nicely done.

Mindi said...

ps. NO LONG KHAKI SKIRTS!!!!!

txmommy said...

that was supposed to be Edward??Yuck!

Stepherz said...

I got my book Saturday morning and have only read one page so far. I can't wait until things slow down a little so I can get into it! I even bought a bottle of wine to go with: Bella Sara. Seemed appropriate.

Sounds like SUCH a fun little shin-dig. And I don't think that Edward is doing it for me, nor the one cast for the movie. Makes me sad. My Edwards looks more like Daniel Craig or Gerard Butler.

Heffalump said...

I think that the "Edward" guy must have been between scifi conventions.
"Help me Obiwan, you're my only hope!"

Nancy Face said...

Yeah, so I went to the Breaking Dawn release party. So?? I HAD to go. Someone had to take my 20 year old daughter...right?

I think our release party was more lame-o than yours! We didn't even get to take a quiz...
