The night started at 6pm with a fun gathering at Julie's- complete with some Italiano cuisine, mint chocolate Forks cake balls, sliced apples & Edward ice cream pie! A very lively Twi-gift exchange kept everyone laughing while Twilight played on the Blue Ray.

The Twilight movie board game and a bag of blood. LOL it's actually a fruit energy drink. I'm saving that for an extra boost staying awake for the midnight movie coming up. My hubby has actually challenged me to a game! Does he think he could really win??? Should I let him win? We all know who is the TwiMom in this house! He is a sweetie.
Exclusive: Melissa Rosenberg on 'New Moon,' Edward's Proposal, and 'Breaking Dawn'Tue., Nov. 3, 2009 11:01 AM PST , by Jen Yamato
FEARnet spoke exclusively with Rosenberg from her home in Los Angeles, where she had recently returned from a whirlwind trip to Rome to unveil new footage for Italian Twilighters. Among other topics, Rosenberg discussed her favorite new scenes and explained how that proposal scene will be split between New Moon and Eclipse -- and that, if she were to write Breaking Dawn, the subject matter wouldn’t be a problem.
Have you seen the final cut of New Moon yet?
I saw an early cut of it, yeah. Some of the special effects weren’t there, stuff like that. But I have to tell you, it’s funny because for writers, and for me – I often will dread a director’s cut. As a writer, you have already seen the movie in your head. And the movie in your head costs a gazillion dollars; you can’t actually make the movie in your head, but you’ve seen it. And so, a director’s cut is almost always a disappointment because it’s not what you’ve seen in your head. It can be a major adjustment, it’s not what's in my head but this one’s different, but as good.
When I saw Chris’s cut, about ten minutes into the movie I started smiling. I thought to myself, I get to put my name on this. It was just so thrilling. It’s really good. I have to tell you, in all sincerity, it’s really good.
I saw you last on a set visit to New Moon’s Vancouver stages, and you had just arrived to watch the dailies. You seemed really pleased with what you were seeing from the Volturi scenes in particular.
Yes, and that was on a sound stage. The big screen version really lives up to it. It just looks lush and beautiful; it looks like a big movie. And the budget didn’t increase that significantly. Harry Potter budgets are what, $150-200 million? This is half of that, at least.
You’ve added a few scenes to New Moon that weren’t in the book, like the one where Jacob gives Bella a gift of a dream catcher. Can you tell us about that?
Actually, I got the idea from a writer friend of mine. I was searching around for that moment... You had to establish the relationship between Bella and Jacob; he can give her gifts and Edward can’t. The sort of easy friendship with the two of them, and yet also, show that Jacob actually has feelings for her. He sort of casually presents the dream catcher, but really he’s shopped around for it for quite a while. I wanted it to be something that was special to him and his culture, and it was so thematic to Bella; the movie is laden with her dreams. Her dream life is a very rich part of the film. So thematically, it really blended well. I thank my friend for coming up with that.
What’s one of your favorite new scenes or extended scenes that you’ve written into New Moon?
One of my favorites is actually the end, when they go to Volterra and confront a couple of Volturi. In the book, the conflict in that scene is verbal; there is an attack on Edward by Jane, and it works in the book, it’s beautiful in the book. It’s never acted out; it never explodes. For the movie, because it’s a visual medium, I felt like I wanted to externalize that conflict more, turn it into more of a battle. So it’s the same scenario, it’s just enacted and externalized. We get to see an actual fight.
We see that fight between Edward (Robert Pattinson) and Felix (Daniel Cudmore) in one of the latest trailers, and with its slow-motion elements it looks great.
I’m telling you: Chris and his stunt guys and the DP are just fantastic. Daniel Cudmore, who plays Felix, did a tremendous job. I love Daniel Cudmore! Not only is he terrific in this role, he’s also just the greatest guy. Funny and charming.
In your script for Twilight, you wrote in a number of direct quotes from Stephenie Meyer’s book. Can we expect the same in New Moon and Eclipse?
There are definitely some quotes sprinkled throughout. In some cases I’m paraphrasing, but I do try to include as many as I can. It’s very important. It brings the flavor of the book into the movie, so I definitely try to.
Fans want to know: Did the proposal scene make it into New Moon?
The proposal comes into the end of New Moon, and that is the first proposal. Absolutely in Eclipse, the proposal when they’re on the bed, yes -- to me, that was a quintessential scene from the book. When Edward gets on his knees, with his mother’s ring, and she says yes -- that was one of the most romantic scenes that Stephenie wrote in all four books.
There are so many specific scenes and events in the Twilight books, it doesn’t seem like you could take them out and still remain true to the story.
Yes. There are several that are so essential to the storytelling that you absolutely must put them in.
Wyck Godfrey specifically said that if Breaking Dawn was made, it would absolutely be a PG-13 film, so it seems that staying true to that story’s specific events while making it suitable for younger audiences would be challenging.
Well yes, you have to know your audience. And... there’s no reason for it not to be. It could be PG-13.
Obviously by the fourth book in The Twilight Saga, there will be subjects and events that do seem unsuitable for the younger side of the Twilight audience. How would you tackle that challenge?
If I were to be writing that, I think there are many things that probably are inappropriate, and there are probably other things that can be implied. I don’t think that it will be a problem.

Ok, nevermind the fact that Alice is being almost choked. I adore her hair in this movie! I'm seriously thinking of cutting mine to look something like it. Nothing like a cut & color to change a mood from summer to fall.
Whatcha think? LOL I think I'm gonna do it :)

Stop over and read her latest post on Bella's Birthday Party & wish her a happy one too! While at the OME dinner last Saturday, Julie and I got inspired about party favors...and we collaborated till we came up with this concept. I had to see if this really worked and there was no better time than for her birthday :)

Literally, I want to kick up my heels and sing
"I've got a golden ticket, I've got a golden ticket..!"
I will barely refrain, lol.
So, on a whim I checked the
AMC movie theater website in my area to see if maybe by some chance they posted when advance tickets for New Moon would be available.
Not only did they say when, they were on sale NOW!
No joke, so check out your local AMC theater's site.
Sweet Julie, ordered ourgroups tickets online quick.
Excited is an understatement.

We were so warmly welcomed and felt apart of the group quickly.
Why wouldn't we?
This is a group of women who love the same things we do when no one else understands!
I joined O.M.E. today! Very excited to do more with this wonderful group of ladies.

"FIRST LOOK: Twilight Barbie Dolls Are Here!
Twilight Barbie Dolls Pink Label Collection
If Twilight-inspired greeting cards and clothing wasn’t enough to satisfy fan-pires’ desires, now they can add Edward Cullen and Bella Swan Barbie Dolls to their collections! As a tribute to the on-screen lovers, Barbie has created a set of dolls modeled after Robert Pattinson’s Edward Cullen and Kristen Stewart’s Bella Swan. Featuring Robert’s strong jaw line and vampire-glow and Kristen’s long brunette hair and innocent face, the dolls are almost an exact replica of the stars. Looks like Bella’s wish for immortality is finally coming true! The Twilight Barbies, $25 each, will be available starting November 1, 2009 — just in time for the release of New Moon — at Walmart, Walmart.com and barbiecollector.com. Mark your calendars! "
Ok, so this seems to anti Twilight to me.
Bella is supposed to be awkward and clumsy- no where near perfect...as Barbie is. Hey, Edward could have fallen in love with Tayna or Rosalie if he was searching for seamless beauty, but he wasn't. I don't think I'll be buying this for my daughter and I think Mattel should read the books and give us "reality". Well, as much "reality" as you can from a fictional teenage vampire romance! lol
