I didn’t understand all the fuss about the Twilight series a while back, when I haven’t read the entire saga myself. I thought I wouldn’t like a love story involving vampires, but boy I was wrong. So now I am a huge fan, and although far from being obsessed, I look forward to watching Eclipse (haven’t seen it yet) and Breaking Dawn with Paulie. We saw Twilight and New Moon together, so I thought it’d only be fair to watch the other two movies with him as well.
Personalized t-shirts with the Twilight theme are all the rage right now, as well as all sorts of the saga’s memorabilia. I think someone’s fanaticism over the Twilight series is also measured by the number of collectible items that he or she owns, but if that was the case, I have a lot to catch up on. If I have some extra cash to spare in my hand right now, I wouldn’t think twice to buy New Moon apparel, or maybe a coffee cup with the faces of the cast in it.
I know wanting one or two Twilight items cannot be called an obsession yet, and I sure hope that my desire to own those stops at just that. I’d rather see other people stocking up on the series’ items than be in that position myself. I can be quite engrossed about something and lose discipline, and this is not an obsession I think I can handle well.
