Lisa: happy birthday to me!

Blake planned an incredible Twilight birthday party for me with Sarah's help, complete with blood-red drinks,

goody bags including glittery vamp-skin lotion,

and a huge cake depicting a vampire/werewolf battle.

Oh, and of course we saw the movie, which was kind of awesomely serious and cheesy and mockable.

My only disappointment? Not getting to see Edward's enormous, satin-draped bed. Oh, and the fact that the restaurant staff somehow got the impression that I'm a rabid Twilight fan.

But you have to admit the teenage girl inside you loved the movie. Or was it just mine?

No, you're totally right. And I would watch it again, especially if the movie was projected up onto a wall and there were snacks and props and possibly an interactive game of some kind.

It sounds fun! I wish I would have been able to go. Instead, I was at a Twilight-themed book discussion party where the general consensus was that the movie was so bad it was good. I kept getting the giggles during the movie (especially when Jacob's dad gave Edward the stink-eye and anytime Jasper's face appeared on screen) and I was pleased that most of the audience was snickering right along with me.

OH MY GOSH. I almost forgot about Jasper! Why couldn't he move his neck? And I lost it during the science classroom scene with the fan sending Bella's scent to Edward.

I didn't help with any planning, it was all Blake! He's a good sort.

The movie is super cheesy and takes itself too seriously. But I'd still make out with Edward.

Who decorated that cake? Pretty impressive.
