...going to the midnight opening of Breaking Dawn, Part 2 tonight, huh? I know the prevailing opinion on Stephenie Meyer around here.
But, I'm taking a gaggle of teenage girls, one of whom is our special friend whom I met when my daughter was in the NICU. Anya (my daughter) was born 16 weeks early, and our little friend Alysia had a ton of congenital defects. The nurses put Anya and Alysia's cribs near each other because we were both going to be there for a looooong time, and our families got to know each other really well. We've all stayed friends, and now the little girl is celebrating her 17th birthday today. Cool coincidence, since she's the biggest Twihard I've ever met!
When they decided to split the last book into 2 movies, we despaired, because we really weren't sure our little superfan would make it through. She's never been medically stable, and she's been going downhill fast the last year. So, it's not just a movie and a birthday party, it's a "Yay, she made it!" celebration!
So, I'm sure I won't run into many SK fans there, but that's OK. More Twilight for Alysia and the rest of us.
