I Think I Can, I Think I Can.....

I sit here like a grounded teenager... Kind of. Some friends of mine are going to see Twilight tonight and I'm not with them. I was invited, I contemplated requesting a night out with the girls, but in the end decided against it for a few reasons. I figured that if I can actually refrain from seeing it tonight, that means I'm not addicted. Right? Not going proves that I am stronger than it is. I didn't say these were rational reasons, just reasons. I also took into account the unholy amount of grief that would come my way, via Hubby if I told him I was going to see the movie again. He has been a gracious sport so far, but there's no point in testing the depths of his patience.

Sure. I thought long and hard about this decision. I was planning and plotting in my head ways to justify going. I could have simply said I was going to the movies, lie by omission. Then if asked, point blank lie through my teeth, and say I was seeing "The Changeling." I thought of offering up sexual favors in exchange for this night out, but this is one of those areas where I have to be very careful. It would have to be something different, not your everyday, run of the mill sexual favor. It would have to be something new or exciting, something I wouldn't normally offer up on any given Wednesday night. Then I thought, there are reasons I don't offer those things up on a normal basis. (Read: if ever) and knowing my husband, he would create a loophole in the deal and I would end up agreeing to things I have never heard of. Things that could involve, hot fudge sundaes, jumper cables and the neighbors from 2 streets over, you just never know....

So here I sit, listening to my soundtrack and contemplating piracy laws. If I could just get a quick fix, I would be ok until my next invite at which point I will probably be more agreeable to some type of unique roll in the hay, (hot fudge or motor oil.....)

I don't have the courage to tell my husband that I'm dying to see it again. So what is a girl to do but dream? Sweet dreams. With just enough creativity and the power of positive thinking during that "twilight" time just before you fall off into sleep ensures a visions of vampires during my long winter's nap.

Will you hate me if I confess to having all 4 books and I haven't read any of them yet? Nor have I seen the movie?

I plan to. I really do. I swear!

Jumper cables? WHAT?!

:)

So are you saying that you want to go see it this weekend?

I am addicted (I'm past the denial stage) and I have to see it one more time before it goes off in the theaters.

This is when Debussy's, Clair de lune will come in handy to lower your blood pressure

Apparently you can watch Twilight online. I haven't tried it yet, but probably will soon because I need my fix! I hope this helps you out!

Back to lurking now. :)

We missed you. I won't even tell you how much better it is in the theater than on that blurry, boot-legged link. You know how great he is. And how great his hair is. And how great his lips are....

I really think I have to go once more before it's off the big screen. Or wait, once more before it's at the $1 movie. Then it's on!

I'm still giggling that you have such an addiction. I'm going again tomorrow for my birthday with a group that hasn't seen it at all. I've told them to read MS, but I don't know if any of them has done it yet. Good luck in breaking the habit.
