Who’s a Twihard?

A week ago I would have said, “What’s a Twihard.” Now I know that it is a person totally obsessed with a movie that hasn’t even come out yet. Yes, the buzz around “Twilight,” the movie based on Stephenie Meyer’s runaway best-seller about sexy vampires, is huge. We even have our own local connection.

In order to separate the died-hard Twihards from the mere Twilighters, Urban Dictionary offers a long list of symptoms (here are some excerpts).

You know you’re a Twihard if:

You dream of going to Forks, or living in Forks. (My comment: You know you’re a die hard Kitsap resident if you even know where Forks is.)

You’ve supplied said literary crack to your friends, and wouldn’t talk to them until they read the series.

Your school projects all relate to Twilight in some way.

You dream of driving a red 1953 Chevy Pickup, while your husband drives a silver Volvo s60 r. (My comment: This happens to me a lot.)

You’ve Photoshopped yourself & made yourself really pale, given yourself golden eyes, and bruises underneath your eyes.

You look up to the sky on a rainy day, and think “Damn I feel as if I’m in Forks!” (My comment: This happens to me a lot.)

If you’re really hooked on “Twilight” you will already have taken one of the hundreds of personality quizzes on the Web (I may be exaggerating but only a little) to see what character you are.

P.S. The Poulsbo Cinema 10 manager just e-mailed me that that theater is sold out for midnight Friday.
