Twilight Tuesday

Every year, the Post publishes a list of what's in/what's out for the new year, and for 2009, not only did the Twihards replace the Claymates, but they also ranked #1 in the "what's in" column.

For the unitiated, Twihards are uber-Twilight fans, one step above the less obsessed Twilighters. Which brings me to the list of what makes a person a Twihard. I had a feeling I would qualify - and I do, based on these~

  • Twilight Tuesday is the most important day of the week.
  • You dream of going to Forks, or living in Forks.
  • You have urges to visit Italy.
  • You've supplied said literary crack to your friends, and wouldn't talk to them until they read the series. (I've turned at least two people to the dark side, and I aim to turn more!)
  • When you grow up, one of your kids is going to be named Edward. (Mr Hazel doesn't know this yet, but it will be so)
  • You dream of driving a red 1953 Chevy Pickup, while your husband drives a silver Volvo s60 r.
  • You look up to the sky on a rainy day, and think "Damn I feel as if I'm in Forks!"
  • You hate how Edward has a fattish, hairy chest while Jacob has a six pack. (This is depressing, but so true - RPattz needs to work on this for New Moon)
  • You hate Jasper's hair, since it looks like the wig is about to pop off any minute.
  • All you want is everything to be perfect in the movie.
  • You have considered sprinkling glitter on your future/husband so you can pretend you're with Edward.
  • You have seen a silver Volvo parked outside a store, and have either taken a picture with it and/or gone inside the store and look for Edward.
  • All of your friends think you need to see a shrink.
  • Talking with random strangers about Twilight is fun!
  • Edward Cullen is your (fictional) boyfriend.
  • You've forced your boyfriend/husband/best boy friend to read Twilight, and made them take Edward's actions to heart. (Sadly, this didn't work)
  • Your [blog] is either dedicated to Twilight, or has a huge portion of it dedicated to Twilight.
  • You enjoy criticizing every aspect of the Twilight movie, since you know they are only taking out your favorite quote/scene just to annoy you.
  • When someone makes fun of Twilight, it's like they are making fun of you, and you jump into an argument with them about how Twilight kicks ass.
  • You felt betrayed when you found out Edward would drive a hatchback instead of the s60 r.
  • You refer to to Robert Pattinson as RPattz or Spunk Ransom.

Ok, I swear soon you WILL make a Twilight fan out of me as well.;)

Alissa said...

Spunk Ransom?!?!?! It sounds like a porn name.

Highmaintenancemom said...

I don't understand the Spunk Ransom?

I don't believe I'm a Twihard, but I do have to say I'm pretty intrigued so far with the books!

I still need to see the movie....why don't you live closer to me so we can go together?!

I can happily say there are five people out there who not only have read the books, but are now twihards because of me. Spreadin' the gospel, baby!

And I do call him RPattz lol. And I always oogle silver volvos.

Protege, I'm working on it!

Hazel Designs said...

PS - Protege, I will make you a Twihard yet!!

Hazel Designs said...

Alissa, doesn't it?? That was the name RPattz joked on an interview he would rather have because he hates his real name. Or something like that. I think he made it up on the fly.

Hazel Designs said...

HMM, I'll make a special roadtrip just for you so we can see the movie together! Does LMD not want to see it? Les and I will make a Twihard out of you yet!

Hazel Designs said...

Les, I bow to your superior Twihard-turning expertise! Five people is impressive. I wonder how many silver Volvos got sold because of this.
