Robert Pattinson's 'Twilight' is hot topic in Saugus

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.

Not lately.

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.

I was there! I drove from Barre VT to stand in line from 4:30 pm on Thursday, (with a squillion other psychos), until 7 AM on Friday morning. In the freezing rain. We were escorted in at that time to get our t-shirts and wristbands. I have to say it was very well organized, and there were no stampedes. The mall security and Saugus police were very good to us, as well as the Hot Topic crew. They gave us pizza and water, and at around 2 in the morning, when we were all slowly slipping into a hypothermic coma, they gave out hand warmers! Robert's security people were a bunch of asses, though. Heads up to the bald guy; you can be competent,and not be a jerk...did you know? He, however, was cordial, friendly, and did his job well. All I have to say is, that it's a good thing he likes Hot Pockets, because I don't think the poor man will be able to go anywhere in Public. It was like the Beatles...the screams, oh my. I think I sustained a 40% hearing loss!
