Hey You - Wanna Watch Twilight With Us?!?

Bring a snack! And a delicious adult beverage, of course...

So the other day I was on Twitter (seriously, if you are not on Twitter and following us, you are missing out! Even my mom could be on Twitter but she won't be because I will never tell her how easy it is or that I am on it because Jenny Jerkface's mom is gonna follow her on Twitter while we are in Forks and she's totally gonna be grounded for like a month after I cart her sorry hung-over ass back to Joisey) and Texas Katherine was saying that she was watching Twilight and I said it was too bad I was going to bed because we should watch it together and then something clicked and HEY! I tweeted that we should all watch it together one night!! Aaaand I got a bunch of responses from people who were TOTALLY into it!

So I was sort of kidding and just being flip at the time but then I got to thinking about it... Let's do this thang!!!

What are you doing this Friday night? Saaaaay around 9:00 to 11:00 Eastern time??? You know, after you've done Drunk [Dirty] Mad Libs with mmMoxie over at Twilight SagaPalooza (if you have never participated, this it the p-e-r-f-e-c-t pre-game to collective Twi-watching!)??? Wanna have a hot date at the Twitarded virtual movie theater with yours truly, Jenny Jerkface, and maybe a hundred-ish of your bestest bloggy best friends ??? C'mon - you know you love us more than those RL twats...

It'll be like that time when JJ & I watched Twilight in Central Park except it won't be raining and we won't be outside and our liquor won't be camouflaged in emptied Smart Water bottles...OK it won't be like that at all - it'll be awesomer - and Twi in the Park was awesome!

As an added bonus, you can bring your own Skittles, Sno-Caps and popcorn without fear of reprisal AND you can booze it up without trying to hide the fact that you nipping a flask (or doing awkward semi-hidden shots like we were at the New Moon premiere). WOOT!

We're thinking we'll get the ball rolling a little before 9:00 and start the move at nine on the dot after we all synchronize our watches. We'll chat in in the comments here and see what happens! You know all that stuff you always wanted to say in the theater but didn't want to be that jerk who talks the whole time? Well bring it on! It might get a little nuts (at least I hope it will) but I have a feeling this will be epic fun!! Twitarded Goes to the Movies - be there or be square!

So are you ready to hit "Play" with us??? Let us know if you're on board--and if you have any suggestions, we're all vampy-extra-super-powered ears!

[JJ's note - Just for the record, STY is a pretty... non-bouncy, non-excitable person. She generally does a very dignified SQUEEEE, but it's all breathy and cute-like and I kind of secretly hate the fact that she doesn't tinkle every time she gets all worked up about something. I totally started laughing when I read this because it's pretty obvious STY is hand-flapping, bouncy bouncy fucking stoked about doing this. I've got my fingers crossed she pees herself. ]

[P.S. from STY - You know we'll be at your house, right? I'll pee all over your sofa if it'll make you happy but don't say you didn't encourage me to do it after the fact when ML gets cranky.]

  1. Erm - we'll see. I'm probably going to see a movie with Mr CC. Maybe. Depends on if the snot factory in my sinuses finally shuts down (ie. If I'm feeling better, we're going out) If not, well then, erm, sorry.

    I LOVE the idea though and we should do it for new moon too!!!!!!

  2. Hey sounds like a blast. Too bad you scheduled your fun fun movie party RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF DML. Thanks for stealing what little thunder I have you skanky whores! :'(

    Just kidding...I'm not mad but you really did. We start DML at 6:30 Mountain Time which is 8:30 Eastern Time.

    I'll bet the pervs who play DML will rip through the game quicker than Edward speed fucks so we can all watch Twilight together! (and we will be drunk, oh yes we will)

  3. ee i wanna! forgive my idiotness butttttt i have no idea about timezone differences. how do i work out what time it will be here in australia when its 9 your time?

    this will probably work out well for me because i think were about 12 hours ahead of America so it will be saturday for me and im free to watch it!

  4. (had to check the hockey schedule first - hey! I'm Canadian! It's Gold Metal time!)

    I'm in!

    And def do it for New Moon as well!

    Hey! Double Feature night!

    ReplyDelete
  5. fml mmMoxie - seriously i thought you started at 7-ish (i swear i have a tweet from someone last week saying that was what time you started!!) - i can make it later - i love DML even if i can't keep uo! maybe we can do it another night - this day/date/time is not etched in stone... [gah! i really meant to do it after - like i calculated the time and everything! aaaand got it all wrong, natch.]

    ReplyDelete
  6. So happy to have the week off so I can DML and watch twilight with you guys. Good idea. Everyone's always on Twitter anyways. Might as well make it a party watching what we love.

    ReplyDelete
  7. I'm so up for this! But it's a little early for me since I get home around the time you are going to start this. But I will join in after I get dh and the dogs fed!

    ReplyDelete
  8. I think that I can swing this. Especially since I usually have Twilight on to fall asleep in my bed in the hopes that I will have a hot, steamy dream about the Precious. It has happened a few times, but not as often as I'd like! I hope that you'll follow me on Twitter so that it can be a reciprocated twigasm event.

    ReplyDelete
  9. Talk about timing! Would you ladies believe I *just* got my copy of the DVD in the mail today? That I have never seen the movie?? What a way to pop my Twi-movie cherry!

    So ya, I'm on board if y'all don't make too much fun of the fact that I'm a total fail late-bloomer! :)

    ReplyDelete
  10. @STY - no way. We can do it. I'll just post one ML instead of two. We'll be finished by 9:00 (your time).

    If not, fuck it. I've been jonesing to watch the movie since I let my MIL borrow it. Maybe if I watch it with you all, I won't fall asleep by the hospital scene. (it's my subconscious sparing me from that scene)

    ReplyDelete
  11. Oh I'm so totally in on this one! I'm always up for an actual purpose of watching the movie again. This is such a fuck-awesome idea!

    ReplyDelete
  12. Dont mind me i just worked it out, im 13 hours ahead of you guys sooo 10am Saturday morning ill be watching Twilight with you!

    There's nothing wrong with being drunk before noon is there....?

    ReplyDelete
  13. FUCKIN' A RIGHT WHORES!!
    STY - Bloody brilliant idea...it's so simple, yet so completely fucking genius.
    It's like I'mma have a real date on a Friday night and shit!
    I will have the kidlets in bed and be on the couch with jammies on and shot glass in hand...

  14. Sounds fun!! If my old alter ego shows up (Twifixx), you'll know it's really me. (Wink. Wink.) I may have my teenaged daughter with me who will no doubt want to join in the fun. I don't mind exposing her to all the dirrty whores on Twitarded; I just don't want her to know Im one of them!

  15. Dammit! I always miss all the fun....I will be driving to our cabin on dark country roads with no Internet access at that time. Have fun all I will drink a Rainier and think of you all.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Oh, man! I wanna play, but I have dinner plans (and am three hours behind you, making my dinner plans a true conflict). This sounds like such fun!
    If you do it for New Moon, I will cancel on my grandma if I have to so I can participate. I can't wait to read what y'all are up to when I get home on Friday! I have definite opinions about that first movie...

    ReplyDelete
  17. I will be there. This will be fun. It will be like a giant Twitarded sleepover. @Latchkey Wife can wear her penguin pj's. $10 says there's a pillow fight before the night is over.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Sounds like fun - count me in! So are we chatting in the blog comments, on twitter, or both? I have a feeling I'll be watching it on my ipod while my family makes fun of me (if I even tell them what I'm doing), but it will be worth it.

    ReplyDelete
  19. I'm so there! Bring on the debauchery!

    ReplyDelete
  20. I'm totally in! That will be 6pm Pacific time, so right after work.

    Sounds perfect. Me, a beer, iPhone in hand. I'll have to plop the kids in front of a video game or something.

    Yay! Can't wait!

    ReplyDelete
  21. I’m in even though, I’m the last one to get home *coughs hawaii time* DML, watching Twilight... all of it.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Il be working...nightshift :(
    But I think I'll watch anyway..such a good idea.

    ReplyDelete
  23. So, will we be playing here, on FB or on Twitter?

    How many of us are on MSN??

    ReplyDelete
  24. I would really like to but I am afraid my non Twilight fan friends who have me commited..plus I am supposed to go rollerskating that night. Oh and while 9 is a great time for you East Coasters 6 is not for my West Coast ass...although getting drunk that early would be fun hhhmmmm...

    ReplyDelete
  25. i think its twitter where we are congregating?

    not sure if you guys are familiar with chatzys, but you can create your own chat room, and just give all the twitards the link, so it will sort of be like msn but for any who doesn't have it? thats if you dont go with the twitter idea, is all

    ReplyDelete
  26. OMG! I am so down for this! RL friends can suck it! Twilight viewing & twitter party? With theatre snacks & alcohol? woot woot!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Sadly, I highly doubt I will participate in this, cause when it's 9 p.m. in NYC, it's 3 a.m. here. I managed to stay up last Friday and do DML, and it was soooo fun. Those of you in N.A. should definitely attend it, especially you TC, I know you'll have fun. =)

    ReplyDelete
  28. This sounds like so much fun- good plan!!

    With time diff, it would be 2am here when you all plan to kick off. I am going to a fancy do that night, so I will probably be making my way home sometime around then anyhow, albeit probably stumbling home(ha,ha,ha). Which would be a great way to join the madness, so sure if I can make it, I'll be there!

    Will you be chatting here? or on Twitter? Or other?

    ReplyDelete
  29. I have the same problem as Jelena - So I'll se if I stay awake... We are 6 hours ahead of you!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Oh btw - I would love to be in a Twilight viewing/twitter party, but won't we all have to follow each other to be able to see all the tweets? I have't really figured Twitter out yet - I mostly use it to follow some of my favourite writers but it seems like nobody can see my tweets. Twitter help sections said that only people that follow you can see your tweets, is that correct?

    ReplyDelete
  31. I totally want to this! Sounds hilariously awesome! Although I'm not sure I'll be home by 7:00 pm Mountain Time on Friday...we'll see I guess. Everyone participating will have to follow each other on Twitter though, otherwise we won't be able to see everyone's tweets.

    So, maybe you could do a blog post just for this event where everyone can post their Twitter usernames?

    Mine is http://Twitter.com/nNoela (yes, two N's)

    ReplyDelete
  32. I WANNA PLAY TOOOOOOOO! I just hope I can stay awake - I can't promise my Tweets won't suddenly drop off around 3am (GMT) but I'll try :)

  33. I think I can play this virtual twilight. how fun!

    ReplyDelete
  34. awwwwww I so wanna!!! but the final decision will be up to mt two kids and whether theyre gonna allow mummy to have 2 hours to herself!!!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Sounds like a blast.....although I swear I am a total tard when it comes to Twitter! LOL Luckily hubs will be working that night, but I still have to deal with the obnoxious 13 year making snide comments the whole time. See you guys Friday!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Aw I wish I didn't have plans already. I haven't watch Twilight in so long - I have to prep myself for the March 20th double DVD feature party... :3

    ReplyDelete
  37. @TK - You're fucking right I'll be in my penguin pajamas!

    Now I'll just have to figure out a way to roofie my husband so he falls asleep on the couch and I can watch uninterrupted!

    Dude.... go back to second shift! You're ruining my fun! (shit, did I say that out loud... that was supposed to be an in-the-head thought only!)

    ReplyDelete
  38. Yay! I'm sorry for all your folks who will be screwed with the time difference.

    I was thinking that we could do this on Twitter AND in the comments here, for those of you that don't use Twitter. I also don't think it's necessary to follow everyone - just pop into their twitter streams every once in awhile and jump into the fray.

    We'll figure it out. Somehow! :)

    ReplyDelete
  39. Are you in my head? I haven't watched (or read, a la Monday's post) Twilight in so long. What a great way to rebreak my Twi-hymen. I'm there! I'm on twitter so if someone comes up with a list of other Twitards to follow, I'll get to work.

    Is it Friday night yet?

    ReplyDelete
  40. Cool (and apologies again to mmMoxie! I'll make it up to you!! I must have gotten the time I THOUGHT you started from someone in another timezone - dur...) - we will be in the comments here and I think we can lake a Twitter list so that we can all follow each other's tweets without everyone having to follow us? is that right? like if we all include #Twi or #TwiParty in our tweets if i create the group we'll be able to follow along that way??? can someone who understands how the lists thing on Twitter works help me out here - lol??? 'cause i am a total tech FAIL and you all know that!

    : )

    this will be awesome fun - sorry the time isn't great for everyone - i was trying to make it so at least the east coasters and west coasters could swing it but i realized that even that means that you west coasters are gonna have to order pizza or takeout for dinner that night...

    We could make is slightly later??? like start at 10:00? personally i don't care about going until midnight on a friday night but i know some of you go to sleep at a decent hour...

    let me know what you all think!!

    : )

    CAN'T WAIT!!

    ReplyDelete
  41. I'm so down for this, but I am also completely twitter retarded. I follow you guys, but I have no idea how to respond to tweets, so I feel all lame and out of the loop. I'll just have to follow in the comments!!!!!

    I'll be watching though. Perfect timing too. Kiddies in bed, husband hiding behind the house pretending he is not smoking...perfect!!!

    ReplyDelete
  42. oh and @Paper Bell - omg I can't believe this will be your first time watching Twilight!! how cool will it be to have a movie newbie/virgin in our midst?? love it! yay!

    ReplyDelete
  43. I am getting about 15 of us twi junkies together to watch with you. Making everyone load twitter to their phones. Should be a drunken, foul mouth, Rpatz filled nigth and I CANT WAIT...see you friday

    ReplyDelete
  44. I'll try but if I drink and watch Twilight I'm game to fall asleep. Also, watch movie, drink, and twitter - I'm not that smart or coordinated.

    And what the hell is DML? Someone please tell me.

    ReplyDelete
  45. @TJB - DML = Drunk Mad Libs. It's dirty and I hear it's fun but I'm not dirty enough to participate...

    ReplyDelete
  46. I am so there! This is somuchfun!!! See you all in Twilight land...
    Where's that damned bottle...

    ReplyDelete
  47. Well, I probably won't be participating in this due to prior committments, but I do have a suggestion on the twitter issue.

    Because of the following issue on twitter, and because many of us are no only TWITARDS, BUT ALSO TWITTER-TARDS...I would suggest the following:

    Work off a comment section in a blog post. That is exactly how we communicate during Drunk Mad Libs...then you don't have people feeling left out.

    When you have the comment box open in the blog post, you keep hitting the F 5 key for instant comment box refreshing. So it really isn't a pain at all.

    Have fun!!

    And we must coordinate a New Moon viewing after that comes out. Wouldn't it be fun to do that one together?

    ReplyDelete
  48. Im so there!
    just made the arangements to send the kiddies to the ex's house. invited a few girlfriends over....im thinking frozen drinks

    ReplyDelete
  49. @Latchkey Wife thanks for the info. That sounds like a lot of fun.

    ReplyDelete
  50. FUCK YEAH!!! i'll have to try and convince the roommmate to join in the fun or make plans elsewhere cause this will be GREAT! i haven't watched it in awhile either! YYYEESSSSSSSS!!! i'm happy that i picked this week to actually try and figure out twitter... (@JustGotMyVamp if anyone wants to read my occasional tweets) SOOOOOO excited! (and the big bottle of vodka in my freezer is too!)

    ReplyDelete
  51. Here's a link to World Clock - you can used New York for Twitarded Time!

  52. NOOOOOOOOOOOO!
    Why so damn early?! For us West-coasters that 6:00 :( Way to early, not even enough time to make it home from work and feed the rug rats.
    Maybe I can at least catch the end...

    ReplyDelete
  53. So there! This will be Epic Fuckery! Awesome idea Snarky!

    ReplyDelete
  54. wish i could. i'll be out of town.

    count me in for the new moon viewing! i can start my dvd player at precisely the same time as you twitards. i'm in the midwest.

    how much do you love my new pic? as much as me? that would be hard to do.

    ReplyDelete
  55. Awww man, I'm going to the movies with Twired Sista'..going to see Valentines Day..I think. I actually was just telling Mrs. P @ Twibite last night that I was bout to pop in Twilight. I watched it up until the bad vampires arrived. Enjoy! I'm bummed I'm going to miss it, I can just see the twitter comments now..AND, u know people are going to be getting thrown in twitter jail left and right! lmao!

    ReplyDelete
  56. @fanficzombie i love yor suggestion.. i am twitter challenged

    Yay- this sounds like such fun. will stock up of alcohol after class this evening :-)

    ReplyDelete
  57. After reading all the comments, I figure we will likely stick mostly to the comments here and not get people thrown into Twitter jail for over-tweeting their thoughts on Twilight (we'd all end up in the slammer - i know we all have a LOT to say on the subject).

    : )

    ReplyDelete
  58. Really gonna try - LOVE the idea so that means my husband will laugh at me. :) Oh well, won't be the first time.

    I don't know how I'm gonna keep up with the comments and the screen ** drool on keyboard.

    Thank goodness I bought the Target version with ITunes download. Gonna download so I can type and watch easily and not hog the big TV in the house . It's the only one with the blueray plater. Oh, then I can transfer it to my phone and take with me anywhere. Sweet!

    Great idea - now I need to go pre-order New Moon - once I finally figure out which one to get. gggrrr

    ReplyDelete
  59. I'm totally in, but there is a significant time delay with comments...what about a twitter account just for the occasion?

    ReplyDelete
  60. Hi there. Long time, I know.

    So, I'll do the math, like all international Twitardeds :) to hit play at the right hour

    The one thing on my way is work... Yeap, I work shifts and I'll be working friday night - me thinks, gonna check out - but I really want to watch Twilight with you girls!!! Real life is getting so on the way of my Twi life.

    Loooots of kisses.

  64. Oh fuck I want to do this!! Does it make me a bad mom if I want to roofie my kid as well as my husband??

    Don't answer that...

    I will try to be there, and everyone in my house will remain conscious. I swear.

    ReplyDelete
  65. My husband will be annoyed, but FUCK HIM...I'm in..SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEE!

    ReplyDelete
  66. HOLY SHIT! Friday nights are my fucking favorite!!!!

    Drunk Mad Libs at 5:30pm Pacific time at Twilight SagaPalooza, then Drunk Twilight movie viewing with all my favorite Twitards! Add in Twitter and comments and I'm SO there!

    I may even have to convince Mr. SV that it needs to be a margarita night for me, so get the bucket.

    YAY! Great idea STY! It'll be TwiMania!

    ReplyDelete
  67. Like the idea of using comments, that way everyone is happy! We could also use that little chat box on the right?

    ReplyDelete
  68. We watchin' it with the subtitles on or off?

    Junie :)

    ReplyDelete
  69. I haven´t seen Twilight since November. For me it doesn´t matter if your event starts at 3:00am. Sleep is overrated anyways and if I can stay up all nicht to watch the Oscar-Gala, I can have fun with you in the middle of the night, too. And my family will be deep asleep (hope so), so there will be no fight over the TV set and no annoying comments.

    ReplyDelete
  70. Damn date night with hubby to hell! This sounds like fun, so have fun without me!

  81. Squueeeee - I invited a friend and her daughter (friend seen Twi but no Tard and daughter still has Twihymen) so we now get to use the big TV! Yippee.

    So gonna have to let the daughter take home the movie since she won't be able to hear the TV over my typing and drunkidy giggles.

    See u at 8pm Central - ATX time! - Austin, TX that is :)

  82. This sounds like complete & total Defcon 10 Fuckery, and you know I'm so there.

    I'm CST, so 8 pm my time right? That gives me three hours to guzzle my cheap Moscato and get WRECKED.

    ReplyDelete
  83. I'm in too.
    If ones puts the hashtag #twiparty one only has to go to search.twitter.com and put #twiparty in the search box to see all the chatter! It's a real time result thing so it would update with new tweets with the hastag included. It would be an easy way for tweeters to comment about the movie! Just a suggestion.

    ReplyDelete
  84. I actually just re-watched the movie last weekend, first time in a long time. Anyway this sounds like fun, will try to join in, if I can stay awake, LOL. It's been a long week! :)

  86. Sounds like fun but I can't see TV from my computer and I don't have a laptop...yet.

    ReplyDelete
  87. @STY - This really is a great idea! So what's the official start time tonight?

    ReplyDelete
  88. Have a great idea. This should also become a drinking game - how about everytime 'Bella' stutters or bites her lip?? Oh, or when 'Edward' has a serious scowl on his face?? We drink!
    (Not that I really need an extra reason.)

    Gonna stop on way home and buy some extra bubbly for the cause - Tonight calls for Carnegie Cocktails. If you haven't tried one, u r missing out!

    ReplyDelete
  89. Awesome, awesome idea! Gonna do my best to join, we'll have to see if I can make it (I'm in PST so it'll be tough to make it after work). So excited!

  96. Sadly, I highly doubt I will participate in this, cause when it's 9 p.m. in NYC, it's 3 a.m. here. I managed to stay up last Friday and do DML, and it was soooo fun. Those of you in N.A. should definitely attend it, especially you TC, I know you'll have fun. =)
