I think tomorrow we'll end our one-week "no spoiler" grace period and get on with it - we're d-y-i-n-g to talk about everything we loooved and everything we maybe didn't love so much... Until then, take it away, TO_Twicat!
Hi, Jenny and STY! Like I promised on the message board, here’s my little adventure... Has to be up there in the top weekends of all time!!
Got to Kelowna on Thursday night shortly after 9. My friend, Pam picked me up and we went back to her place where we watched Twilight on her big screen TV as a warm-up for the next evening.
Friday morning, we were up early and out the door by 8AM. We drove through some of the most beautiful country I've ever seen...seriously. Just breathtaking up in the mountains – in spite of the snow.
Mini Edward loved it! Arrived in Langley just after 12. This is the town/suburb of Vancouver where a lot of New Moon and Eclipse were filmed. Yeah – I went a wee bit crazy when I realized that some of Rob’s DNA might still be hovering over the town! LOL!. We headed to our friend, Tamie's and then headed out to the theatre with her and her 12 year old daughter around 3PM. Got to the theatre took our place in line - eventually, with everyone meeting up, we had 12 in our group, including some teenagers to make us look somewhat legit - LOL! hey! There was a dude there!! Bet he got lucky that night… here’s us!! The cute red-head second from the right…with Mini E, that would be me!
Mini Edward had the most comfy seat in the house!
It was around 6ish when the theatre manager came out and told us they had opened up another theatre for the movie and if we wanted to see it at 6:15 instead of 7:15, we could. Um...YEAH!!!! (they had the movie running in about 6 theatres)

the infamous Kobi Meatballs aka “Rob Balls” – I had to have 2 of ‘em –they’re bigger than they look [that’s what she said!!]
the private bar they would have enjoyed…
As you may have read on Twitarded, The Cullen house is up for sale so we went to find it and to see if we could go in. When we got there, Pam started to chicken out but Tamie said, "Well, it's for sale so I'm sure they aren't going to say anything if a couple of people show up." So, we parked on the street and walked down to the house.
In the car, Pam and Tamie started to argue over who was going to knock on the door. Then, they turned to me and said, “YOU DO IT!”. I said I would so, we walked up to the front door of the Cullen house and I KNOCKED ON EDWARD CULLEN’S FRONT DOOR! A man, we assumed the real estate agent, opened it.
I told him I was in from Toronto and had no idea that the house was for sale until I got into town and could we come in for a minute and just look around? He was very nice and said that he wished he could say yes but he'd already turned down some people from Germany earlier. But he said we could take some pictures outside.
BTW - Pam and I checked this morning. That wasn't the real estate agent - it was the owner! OMG - I asked a perfect stranger if we could come into his house and look around! LOL!
On the way back to Langley, we stopped to check out where Bella's house was.....WAS. Seems they tore it down a few weeks ago once "Eclipse" was done. But I stood where it was...
bella’s house stood here. there are the woods where edward deserted her. new sod was put down by film crew after they took down the house me standing in where the Swan kitchen was – i think! where bella asked edward to kiss her on her birthday – would you believe they added fake trees to the front of the house and then removed them? not sure what they did with this fence thing… The rest of the weekend was spent traveling back to Kelowna so I could catch my plane the next day back to Toronto.
BTW - we're doing this alllll again in June when "Eclipse" comes out!! What do we do now until March???? ;-) Cheers, ladies! Thanks for doing all you do!!!!
