since we're fairly confident that blogger would crash if we posted ALL the pic's we have from our little trip, we've decided to break it up into two posts...
the first being
the happiest place on earth
we showed up in LA, (in the middle of the night thanks to our little detour we took in vegas at the H&M...love it!) not really knowing what to expect. we knew they were handing out wristbands at 6am, but that was pretty much the extent of our knowledge. however, we were ready for anything! lindsay had her running shoes on & was on the prowl, ready to pounce when something big happened. after hours of scouting out the competition and worrying about EVERYTHING, we finally got the wristbands that guaranteed us a spot at the premiere. and no one even got hurt in the process... :)
SUMMITT closed down what seemed to be all of downtown LA, to create this little universe in which the very bravest and most dedicated twilight fans were to reside for the next 4 days. this is TENT CITY...
after we set up camp, (took a while because the tent we brought was too big, so we had to run and buy a new one. actually our new friend beverly ran all over town to find one for us. love ya bev.) we came to the conclusion, we didn't hold a candle to our fellow campers. i mean, we thought we were twi-hards. we LOVE the books and have read them a million times. we LOVE the movies and have been at every midnight showing and then waited in the nasty wal-mart lines in the middle of the night to be the first to OWN the new release on DVD. for heavens sake, we left our lives in utah attend the world wide premiere of the second to last movie. that should count for something right? wrong. we are definitely not twihards, we are but mere fans in comparison. these people live, eat, and breath twilight. some a little too much.
So, not to be completely outdone, we got to work.
made t-shirts, check.
made posters, check.
decorated our tent, check.
embraced the crazy, double check.
we soon realized that tent city was as much for publicity as it was anything else.
we, along with all the other campers, became local celebrities being interviewed by all
the local media. and who wouldn't want to be on camera after camping for four days?
and um, no. we had to draw the line somewhere :)
we partied all night.
every night they would show one of the three twilight movies. we became deaf from the screaming... but it was fun to be surrounded with people who are passionate about it.
one of the nights they had five of the bands that are featured on the soundtrack put on a concert for us. it was awesome! the MC was demetri from the volturi.
better stick to acting...love ya charlie.
grab a snack and a bev, maybe even a little brown sack to breathe heavy into because the premiere was off the hook! stay tuned...
