are YOU a twi-hard?

... Now I'm officially and forever stating for the fact that although I enjoyed the Twilight books as much as the next person - I am not, have never been, and never will be a "Twi-Hard"... 

So, how many of YOU stayed up all night to see the movie?  I don't even have my tickets yet - I prefer to wait and see it when the theatre is NOT full of teens that are screaming at the glittery hotness of Edward!  Besides - hubby said he'd go with me (he even read the book so he wouldn't be lost) and I'm certainly not going to subject him to the first weekend when it's 90% women!  Besides, I didn't buy a "Bite Me" shirt - so I don't dare show my face :) (shoot, couldn't find a little smiley that looked like vampire teeth - THAT would have been much cooler)

I'm pretty sure that there's no "spoilers" in the movie if I've already read the book, but just in case - let's not fill my comment section with "I can't believe you missed out on (insert awesome scene of your choice here)" because who knows, there might be SOME people out there who have yet to read the books!  And if you are close enough to me to ask (physically or emotionally), yes - you can borrow them!

Okay - that's all - just making sure that although I AM the one that read the first 3 books in 3 days (it would have been 2, but I had to wait for the book to be released the next morning) - I am NOT the one missing out on sleep in order to see the movie first!

I was blase about the books, so I'll probably just wait for the DVD to come out.

How dull am I? :)

I'm with you--I enjoyed the books (actually, I haven't read Breaking Dawn, yet); but I am not rushing out to see the movie, I won't be visiting Forks anytime soon, and I have no plans to buy any of Bella's jewelry. I doubt we'll see the movie before it comes out on DVD since we rarely make it to the theater.

I am with you as well Tonya. My sisters saw the movie at midnight last night and one thought it was too cheesey and the other one did like it. Our course my teenage neice loved it. I do know there is somethings missing from the movie that were in the book but they probably left them out for time issue so the movie wouldn't be too long.

Haven't read the book-- Should I?

I reviewed the book (well, books) awhile back over at my "other" blog... you're welcome to read my take on them there... It's hard to know what an individual person is going to like... but I think you'd enjoy them enough for a library visit :)

or a loan... that offer still stands too!

Not a twi-hard...finished Breaking Dawn like 10 minutes ago (FINALLY) and I won't see the movie until tomorrow. :D

I'm stretching out my Twi experience as long as possible. So I've only read through book 2 and am waiting for the right moment for the next one.
I must admit that Edward in the movie trailers is growing on me. I might not be able to stay away from that beautiful 'marble' skin!

I must admit, I havn't read the books. After Harry Potter was done I decided that was it. Done.
