We Went To See BREAKING DAWN, PART 1 and All I Got Was This Awesome T-Shirt!

So I guess by now you all know that we went to see Breaking Dawn: Part 1 this week? No? Well, we did. We went and we made a drinking game, WHILE drinking, which is no easy feat, let me tell you. Also while staying up waaay past our bedtime. Of course, the hardest part was deciding which ridiculous things to choose to drink to (like I totally had written down, but forgot to add "take one drink when Edward stands over Bella and watches her sleep 'for old times' sake'"). But I digress.

Here in Austin, John, of this review of the movie-fame, joined me before the midnight show started, and the two of us decided to try to interview as many people as possible -- both fans and people who were there to see just how cray this thing was going to get, while Megan no h and Alix, of A Tale of Two Pen Pals-fame went to see it on opening night with their Book Club! Following are the fruits of our labor.

John and I were really excited to talk to a ton of people who had been in the Twilight Saga Marathon theater. Partly because they were all really nice to us, but mostly because they had been playing our drinking games all day! Unfortunately, the theater was dark and also noisy, because everybody was having such a good time, so some of the recordings (like from two ladies who had never read the books, and had NO IDEA what they were in for) were rendered unsalvageable. Here's what we did get:

Of course, we weren't the only ones having a great time! Look at the lovely ladies from the Washington D.C. area FYA Book Club!

Underneath those winter coats, they have on some amazing t-shirts made by Alix! Here's what they look like:

OMG WANT! WANT! I never thought I'd want a Twilight-related t-shirt, but Alix's genius has CHANGED MY MIND! You'd think by looking at them that those shirts couldn't get any more awesome, but just look what Alix put on the backs!

Seriously? SERIOUSLY?!!! I'm so happy that this website has allowed us to get to know so many amazing and talented people! Because, I'm SO getting one of these!

I'll leave you with what was my own personal mission for the night: getting everybody to say two little words. Thankfully, Posh helped.

 

Shameless Self-Promotion!
