Stan & Mary's mini Twi convention

Sooooo, finally we got to see New Moon and I'm still feeling post-coital-esque about it *sigh*.

I arrived at Mary's, thankfully the weather held off so I didn't have to ride a sheep - which, for the record we don't keep for kinky reasons.  Thanks for that Mary *tut* ;o).  And I only got told off by Mr Stan a few times on the journey down for my random and uncontrolled "WOOOOOOOHOOOOOOOOS" and involuntary handclaps.

I jumped out of the car at Mary's and we WOOOOHOOOOOO'd at each other and waved Mr Stan and the Stanlets off to my parent's house.  We were very good, got our Rob mugs out for the occasion (I use mine every day, but Mary's was yet to be christened) and settled down to watch Twilight.

Part way through I excused myself to go to the toilet and changed into a little surprise I'd prepared for Mary. Muahahahaaaa!  Her reaction was priceless, I really wished you could all have seen her when I walked back into the room as..........



Uncanny, I think you'll agree

I thought Mary was going to collapse on the floor, or at least wet herself, but thankfully she managed to get back under control.  I thought about keeping the outfit on, we hatched a plan that Mary could pose as my carer and it would keep the fangirls away, but in the end I did change back, November is a little too chilly for jorts when you're not a werewolf.  I did keep her on her toes with unexpected mask wearing throughout the rest of the day though.

Mary hadn't heard the soundtrack for New Moon, so we had a little listen while Mary cooked dinner.  Here is our review, as requested by TwiWeasel:  Not very impressed, overall mainly shit.  Skipped at least three tracks after about 20 seconds because they were especially shit, the rest were not quite as bad, although still not really our thing.

Finally, and many WOOOOOOOOHOOOOOOOs and handclaps later (good job her house isn't overlooked!) it was time to leave. 



Mini-E, Chimpsten & Mini-J ready to go

I gave Mary instructions that, should I get knocked down in the car park that she should still have me wheeled into the cinema to watch the film.  It was very British, we had to queue to get through the doors, then they had another queue and were taking people through in small groups.  We got seated and, due to the fact we were a good 20yrs older than most of the rest of the audience I decided not to get Mini-E and Mini-J out, although there's no holding Chimpsten back and she got herself comfy in the cupholder, which kept us giggling during the film everytime we looked down at her.

Anyway, we LOVED the film!  We won't give any spoilers yet seeing as not everybody has seen it.  Obviously there were bits that we were both disappointed to see missing, but we realise that not everything could be fitted into 2hrs 10mins (although we'd happily have sat through several hours more of it!).

Sadly Mary woke up very ill yesterday.  I've heard from her this morning and she has swine flu.  She thinks it's God passing judgement on her for perving at the man-boy (I did this without shame so escaped the judgement muahaha!) and I agree.

Get well soon Mary, you dirty swine...

To everybody still to se it, especially TwiWeasel and mmMoxie who are seeing it today, have a fantastic time, we'll swap notes soon!

Oh my, I love your blog Stan, so great. I went to see New Moon friday with my girlfriends and we all absolutely loved it, the place was packed. " friends couldn't go as they were ill but the nice young man (ooo young man) gave me a refund on 2 of the tickets after we had seen the film. I say yay for long blonde hair & big boobs-it works wonders and I'm in no mood to change a winning formula lol.
The film was utterly fangtastic, I loved Jacob (grudgingly) and let out an almighty PHWOAR when Robert appeared sans shirt. Those trousers hang impossibly low-ohhhhhhhhhhhh happy trails!!!!!! I HAVE to go see it again and again and again and again, then buy the DVD. Waiting for Remember Me to come out now-apparently March 2010 then its Eclipse SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE! To make my life perfect besides Robert agreeing to live in my attic and being my sexual plaything (SIGH-keep the dream alive ladies) Steph would finish Midnight Sun and email me personally to read it first and comment on it LOL yeah right.....in my ever loving Robert dreams

Jelena said...

Oh no, Mary, get well soon. I symphatize completely as I have been sick, wondering whether I have the swine flu too, some mild version, since I didn't have fever at all.

I'll take your advice Stan, and see if I can see NM with those teens.

Btw, lovely impression of Jacob. What the hell are those things on your biceps anyway? LoL

Jelena said...

Just wanted to add that I was too late, that they finished putting people on the list for that screening, as the limit was 1,000! WTF! When I read that, I was glad I was too late. Me, amongs 999 teenagers? Oh lord, I think there would definitely be some blood shed. :D

ROFLOL at the dream catcher jorts guy! I will have that picture burned in my mind as I am touring colleges (university to you folks over there) with my son today. Mary, get well soon! I had it too, felt so bad for three days I would have jumped off a cliff like Bella, if I'd had the energy. However, I did survive.

TwiWeasel said...

@ Nebilet - Long blonde hair and big boobs are a winning combo...I've cut my hair and went brunette (it seems that's what God has intended) but I still got me some boobalicious hooters!! A low cut shirt can do wonders to the male brain. And let them get a little peek at a leopard print bra...RESULTS!! Oh, and I'm keeping the dream alive, as well as the one where we win the lotto...

@ Jelena - too bad!! At least we've diverted the blood shed.

@ Z Any Mouse - I will feel free to let out a little squeek in your honor...

And now ladies, I'm off to the show!!!!! SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!

sprtzmom1721 said...

@Stan - Bella totally would have chosen that Jacob over Edward. LOL!!! Too funny.

@Mary - So sorry. Get better soon.

@Z Any Mouse - We've talked about it before, but I just want to say again that you have my sympathy regarding the college visits and what that means to your family dynamic. Exciting for your son, but mixed emotions for you, I know. Good luck and let me know how it went. Thank God you got the show to lift your spirits. ENJOY!!

@Nibbleit & TwiWeasal - Bitches! Thanks for reminding me that my boobalicious days are long gone ;)

Snarkier Than You said...

LOL!!! LOVE your Tayboc - and i have to admit I was impressed with him in the movie, too...

: )

Snarkier Than You said...

p.s. my veriword was "venem" - lol!

Meg said...

Great jorts. I think we should all rock jorts next summer. Start a new trend.

Mary, get well soon. God loves you perving out on Taybait; you probably just got sneezed on while on the train or something. ;-)

mmMoxie said...

I finally saw it! Had a good time with the Saga Mafia. I'll post about it later...........I still haven't found the words.

So glad to be able to share these experiences with all my bloggy friends!

Mary said...

Hi biatches. Fab film but I'd happily jump off a cliff to make this pain stop too x

Stan said...

(((hugs))) Mary.

Thanks everyone for your compliments on the jorts, and I'm glad that at least some of you recognised it was a dreamcatcher (NOT a rat TwiWeasel *tut*), it's all in the little details ladies ;o).

Jelena said...

Update: I'm in! They announced that there will be 200 more tickets, so I put my friend and me on the list to see prescreening of NM this weekend. Now I can finally go SQUEEEE too. :D

Stan said...

@Jelena, YAY! Really pleased for you! And then we'll be able to discuss it too LOL!

Z Any Mouse said...

True to my word, as I was wandering around the University of Southern California for seven hours yesterday, I kept giggling to myself thinking of Jorts Stan holding the rat (ha! TwiWeasel). I know Mr. Any Mouse and my college-bound son thought I was nuts, but it was a great stress reliever.

TwiWeasel said...

@ Jelena - WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!! I am so excited for you!!!!!

TwiWeasel said...

@ Stan - I hadn't seen the movie yet when I said that. Sheesh!
