Serious Values For Such An Unconventional Story

I never made it to the theaters for the screening of Twilight which is odd. I'm totally into the whole romanticism of vampires (not the demon stories so much as the forever love stories) and really enjoy teen movies. Don't judge!

It was not until after Twilight was out of the theaters that I found out that the author of the book by the same title (Stephanie Myers) is a mormon. Interesting. I am not a mormon, but since I have many friends who are, I have gotten a little glimpse into their values and beliefs.... love story you say? Very Interesting. I then did a little research and found out that this love story is the old fashion kind, the kind that I LOVE. You know, the kind where two people actually get to know each other and don't give too much of themselves away... what!?! This is a vampire story right? Ok, so I'll cut to the chase. I just bought this movie (sight unseen) and am set to pick it up at 11:00 p.m. this evening at the release party being held at the video store. Yes, this DVD debut is being rolled out at a release party full on with a costume contest (character make-up encouraged) and "good guy/bad guy" debate. I think the thing is going to be catered as well. Wow! This is going to be an experience. Someone mentioned that Stephanie Myers was even going to make an appearance at the video store on the west side, I think they said that she lives in AZ. This is beyond crazy and is building the suspense to see this film. But I am a sucker for a good love story and even more of a sucker for a VAMPIRE LOVE STORY!!! This better not suck (pardon the puns... overkill)!
Edit Note: Apparently I cannot pick this DVD up until midnight. The party starts at 11:00 p.m. for anyone who might be going. Wanted to make sure that the correct info is out there. Also, the Stephanie Myers appearance is a rumor...
