Do I love Twilight?  Yes.  Am I slightly obsessed?  Yes.  Did I go at midnight to buy Breaking Dawn?  Yes.  Did I stand in line at Borders will all the crazy twilighters?  No.

There was a time when I thought I should have gone and been a part of all the craziness.  Then there was last Tuesday night.  I had my first experience with the real true "Twihard" fandome.  Can I say....never again?  The actors that play Victoria, Laurent and Jacob were at my mall on Tuesday night.  All the crazies gathered outside my store about 2 hours before the actors even got there. It was a very eventful evening as I listened to them scream and chant "Jacob" for approximately 4 hours.  The funniest thing I saw all night was a girl sobbing while her mother comforted her.  Why you ask?  She met Jacob...oh JACOB...JACOB!!!!  AHHHHH...JACOB!  

One of my sales associates was a part of all this madness.  She is way more obsessed with the series than anybody I know.  She even came back from the signing and said it was totally crazy.  Especially with all the little teenagers high-pitched screaming all night long!  She stood in line all night long to get a poster of Victoria, James and Laurent signed.  But, there someone missing?  Jacob wasn't even on the poster.  WHAT?  

Aside from all my friends I have not met any grown ups that are Twilight fans.  Then the other night in my store I overheard, said sales associate, talking about Twilight to one of our clients.  I looked up because I was wondering why in the world she was doing this.  When she saw that I was paying attention to her she said, "she likes Twilight too!"  I was so excited to finally meet a fellow grown up Twilighter, one would have assumed I was one of those crazy fans standing out in the cold!

So, will I go see the movie?  Yes.  Will I go for the midnight showing?  Most definitely not!  Will I go sometime opening weekend when there is more likely going to be more adults that rabid teenage fans?  Most absolutely yes!
