Oh To Be Young and Vampire

I have my ticket in my hot little hands and I’m excited.

We’re off to see Breaking Dawn Part 2 tonight – my teenage daughter works well as a prop in this instance – and I can’t wait to see Bella as a vampire. I was born to be a vampire, she says in the trailer, and I was born to fall in love with people (or werewolves, vampires, robots, whatever) falling in love on gigantic screens while eating popcorn. We all have our things.

I realize it’s not cool for a person of my vintage to love the Twilight series, and I have patiently waited for the super-crazy Twilight fans among us to attend their midnight showings and wait in line for hours to see the movie during opening week. I’m a fan but I’m not an idiot. I’m hoping for an empty seat in front of me on which to fold my coat, ensuring a clear view of the shirtless Jacob.

I’m bemused that even after four movies, the series isn’t getting old for me, unlike the Sex and the City movies, which should have died on the table after movie number one. Will tonight be the final straw? Will Edward’s sparkling skin no longer appeal? Will the vampire and werewolf culture fail to interest me? Will I be done with this love triangle, and be happy to say goodbye to rainy Forks? Will I finally have outgrown my addiction?

Stay tuned.

    Ah! I wish I had a teen daughter for a prop. There have been many a cheesy Zac Efron rom-com that I’m too embarrassed to admit I want to see 🙂 I am so far behind the times and life in general that I STILL have yet to read or watch the Twilight stuff.

      Twilight will be waiting for you when you have more time – I think part of my love affair with it is that it gets me out to a movie theater to begin with, since my daughter is begging to go. Simply sitting there for two hours is such a treat. (And I have a serious crush on Edward.)
