I Might Need Professional Help..

I went to see Edward. Again. I NEVER see movies, again. Don't buy movies when they come out on DVD.. don't watch HBO reruns. Just don't. Not interested. (Wait. Except for Notting Hill. And Breakfast Club. And O.K.-- Titanic. But that's IT.) But somehow, after at least 6 months of not even being IN a movie theatre.. just hit it twice in 5 days. For the same movie. Should the people closest to me be concerned? When does one recognize it's time for an intervention? And when will I realize that no real man is ever gonna think I smell THAT good.. or take me to a restaurant when HE'S not even eating?? Call it an obsession. Call it a fantasy..(call it a mid-life crisis. I won't be offended.) But something about the forbidden yet undying (literally.. hardy-har) devotion and intensity of the relationship in the film, really has me fixated for a minute here. I will now do my best to focus on real life, and NOT return to the theatre for at LEAST a week-- but I can't promise anything.

I've never seen a movie twice in the theater but, I'm really thinking about it with this one.

Hey, sometimes movies just hit home. I can't wait to see it. I hope I am pathetically in love with it too.

There is nothing wrong with you unless we have all been stricken with the same thing!!!! I am going again tonight if you want to come! My little sister hasn't seen it yet!(GASP!!) Now I do think that something is wrong with her! Don't you think that it's my "responsibility" to take her and make sure that she doesn't miss out on this classic?!?!

Is this what happens when I leave town? Pull yourself together girlfriend! There are more movies to be seen! ha! ha! (Although something about seeing it again appeals to me--now knowing more about the storyline and all. It's kind of like the first time at the theatre was our "reading of the book"--everyone else had, we were new to it all (I have a good word to describe it, but little eyes are peering over my shoulder. Do you like how I just did a parenthesis inside a parenthesis?)--and then the next could be just enjoying the movie!) Hey and you could look at yourself as doing a favor to all the Edward lovers out there--by boosting their movie sales they will be more likely to make a sequel and another. :) Happy Thanksgiving!! See you soon!

I saw it tonight and when I got home James was in mid-sentence (no lie) when I said, "poor husbands, how can you possibly live up to vampires?" Is that really mean??
