So not only did I get a Twilight-star signed Twilight DVD this weekend, I also went on a musical binge. Ouch. But! My brother's musical theater friend was in town. He wanted to go to one. So Saturday we went to Shrek. It was ok. It was cute...not my speed.

Then on Sunday, I send the boys out, and curl up with my Twilight DVD extras. Around 4:30 I get a call from my little bro, "Would you want to see Hair?" I said sure why not. They win lottery tix (the only way you can afford 2 shows in one weekend) and Mike gives me his seat, which was really close to the front balcony. As we're walking in, I remember that the original Malchior was in Hair when it was at Broadway in the park. Well, we sit down, I overread the guy in front of me's text, and it said "sitting behind John Groft @ Hair." What? I look up, and sure enough it was him! What was cooler was teh fact that the WHOLE broadway cast was kind of focused on him 2 rows in front of me. So, this dude that sings "touch me" and "totally f***ed"which I listen to basically EVERY day was 2 rows in front of me. Awesome.

#8 is the new #1

Standing in line at Borders Penn Plaza at 6:50 AM in the snow on Friday, March 20, I had a revelation. It follows: I don't do things half way. I'm either all in or all out. Which is exactly why you're going to think I'm crazy after you read this post. But I'm not crazy......just dedicated!! And now live in New York City, which is a place where, if you're dedicated enough, you can probably manage a few awesome super fan experiences.......

So a few months ago, I tried to preorder the Borders DVD b/c it was the super of super awesome in terms of Twilight DVDs. After on and off weeks of harassing Borders, I quit. Then I called back a month later, and said I wasn't going to be able to get their exclusive copy. So, a little bit later, they released that if you got a wristband teh day of teh release, you MIGHT be able to get a copy. So, the dedicated Twilight fan I am, decided to go early that Friday morning. Then it came out Thursday that actors from Twilight were going to be making appearences around the nation at these parties (Hello...totally mine...Twilight Moms are podcasting). So, this gave me final incentive to roll my behind out of bed at 5:45 am to go get my wrist band. Who wouldn't take 3 hours less sleep to possibly be in the same room as Robert Pattenson?

Got there. I was #8. A lady with a really funny flower bow was first. Two ghetto fabulous annoying teenagers. Then me, and a nice lady and her sister behind me. Then 30 minutes later, the super crazies showed up. A man in a green hat that slept in Penn Station, a lady with boots and a hot pink mini skirt that dated Scott from Five (?). But, at 8:00, I got my #8 wrist band. And headed to work. And let everyone I saw that day know that I'm #8 to get Twilight.

Karina and I head back to Borders at 8:00 PM, go assume our place, I reveal that I know a lot more about Twilight than most of the fans there (I do credit this to Twilight Lexicon, His Golden Eyes and TwiCrack Addict). We get shipped upstairs. Listen to a very boring podcast. Then the fangirl screaming started. We stand....trivia.....then they disband to do a scavenger hunt. We think this is a perfect time to move up. Then the fangirl screaming starts. And continues. We position ourself for a prime location should a Twilight star show up. I end up standing next to the girl I was behind last week @ the Ashley Greene signing. Then, sure enough, Edi Gathegi shows up. He asnwers a few fan questions. INCLUDING MINE!!!!

My question: How do you feel about the new contacts for New Moon? (See Alice's here) He loves them. They make vampire eyes "pop" and they're easier to put in. Way to go me that an evil vampire would show up to the party!!! (I'm still letting everyone knwo I'm #8...I was kind of excited about that) So he finishes. We go get in line. #1-#7 don't show up. Well, I'm in front. At midnight the guy in the green hat says its midnight!! Go!! I get there, and some blog with a video camera interviews me. If i find it, i'll post it. Then I turn to teh guy and he says he doesnt have his DVDs yet. So I smile pretty and ask if since I'm the first to buy a Twilight, can I get a signed DVD? He says yes. About this time. Ghetto fabulous and her obnoxious friend show up, try to take the dvd and then get kicked to the back of the line. hahaha...it was nice. so then I skip back in line to visit Karina at her #50 spot and do a happy dnace b/c 1) I own Twilight 2) IT'S SIGNED BY AN ACTOR FROM TWILIGHT and 3) Only NYC allows things like this. We get up to her number, and she gets a signed copy too.

We go outside, jump up and down a litte, take pics. And I go home and watch deleted and extneded scenes. The DVD rocks. And now they're filming New Moon. And we get to do this all again starting November 20. Wehoo!!!

Yellow leadbetter

So, what's better than your favorite books movie coming out on your birthday? Nothing. Absolutely nothing. OK, maybe New Moon the day before my birthday. But maybe not. What's next?

Friday. Friday is REALLY close!! Why, you ask?

Well, Spring Awakening tix for when it is in Philly go on sale. Stage seats is the goal. And if no stage seats, well, there's still the gloriousness of Moma who bore me (x2), Bitch of Living, My Junk, Touch Me, Mirror blue night, I believe, The Guilty Ones, Dont do sadness/blue wind, Totally f*cked, and Those You've Known. And a new cast who keep a totally awesome blog. Find link to right. *Let's through totally f*cked in there again. That song is just so much fun to watch*

TWILIGHT!! No stars this weekend (that was last weekend, I so met Ashley Green!!) but we have a few more minutes of Edward/Bella goodness in DVD form. AND! I live in New York City, so the fun perk of Borders parties with Twilight fan celebs. Wehoo!!

Basketball. Did I really but NCAA round 2 weekend at #3? Yes.

And I get to bust out the coolest shirt I own. And then I get to spend the weekend with my brother. Who is bringing me more of those tasty sweethearts. And then I'm spending next weekend in Vegas. What?!

Don't you evah

OK, taking a train as transporation 99.9% of the time, any New Yorker has that one moment where you want to give that one dumbass a swift kick in the ass for being and idiot and sticking their hand in the door. This is usually followed by the conductor saying something to the extent of "Please do not place any objects in the door when the train is leaving the station." My favorite daily read, Overheard in New York, which dedicated some of its on-liners to conductors who spiced it up a little.

Wednesdays Will Let Go Of the One-Liners When They're Damn Good and Ready

Train conductor: Ladies and gentlemen, if you see the doors are closing, don't throw yourselves at them.

--Uptown 6 Train

Conductor: Ladies and gentlemen, use all train doors. This is not a high school cafeteria line. Use all doors!

--C Train

Conductor: Stand clear of the closing doors. Please. Folks, I am not kidding, stand clear of the closing doors. Unless you like that whole cut-in-half look, then go right ahead and stand in the way.

--Uptown A Train

Overheard by: queen

Conductor: We are not auditioning for any amateur doormen today. Please let go of the closing doors.

--1 Train

Overheard by: RG

Conductor: Ladies and gentlemen in the first car, please let the doors close. (people keep the doors open) Excuse me, please let the doors close. (people keep the doors open) Ladies and gentlemen, if you do not let the doors close, I will bite you. (doors close)

--Uptown 1 Train

Mirror blue night

Um, I still heart Hunter Parrish......


AND, I was flipping channels tonight, and a random Dashboard show was on. Hands Down never ceases to be just as awesome as it was the first time. So, without further ado......Hand down this is one of the best songs ever......
