As a reformed "Interview with the Vampire" junkie still in recovery from an unhealthy obsession with Anne Rice, I thought my taste for blood would wane over time.
Don't tell a soul but I'm smitten with Stephenie Meyer's "Twilight" book series. In fact, I got a little weak when I heard that Edward Cullen (played by Robert Pattinson) is making a guest appearance at Hot Topic at Square One Mall in Saugus on Friday, Nov. 14 at 6 p.m.
One caveat: You have to be one of the first 500 customers to snag the $30 "Twilight" tour T-shirt at Hot Topic this Friday to get a wristband. No shirt, no access.
While I'll probably not make the trek to Saugus this weekend, odds are good I'll be first in line when "Twilight" hits theaters on Friday, Nov. 21.

UPDATE: At least one teen was hurt at a San Francisco mall on Monday, Nov. 10 after a huge mob of roughly 3,000 teens prompted cops to cancel Robert Pattinson's scheduled appearance at the Stonestown Galleria Hot Topic. On Wednesday, Nov. 12, more Pattinson mania at the Orland Square Mall near Chicago.
Meanwhile, hundreds lined up overnight on Friday, Nov. 14 in the rain in Saugus according to the Herald here for VIP access to the meet-and-greet session with Pattinson.
