I believe the store is defining "out of town" as more than two hours away. And they have run out of spaces on the "out of town" list anyhow. I guess they only allowed for so many. My friend tried to reserve one, but she was put on a waiting list in case anyone cancels. Like that's going to happen.

so are we going to plan any official get together?? do we want to do it before or after? where? are we reserving a table?? etc..

I'm still not sure if I can come, but I really hope I can make it. But if I get a job, I guess there probably isn't much chance of me being able to get there in time to get a book.

Hmm... well... I'd like to get together after, but I'm dragging my mom along with me to get a second wristband for a friend (hopefully) so I'm betting she's going to want to go straight home and back to bed. XD

Alsooo... I'm thinking about making a t-shirt to give to Stephenie. It's going to be about her Texas fans, so I wanted to get people to sign it while we're in line to get our books. Would anyone be interested?

I think that we should probably do it after because some people are going to want to be there extra early that day to get good seats. We probably should reserve a table. But we need to find out how many to reserve for.

I like the t-shirt Idea. What kind of ideas do you have for it?

The plan right now is to have the front say, "Jasper isn't the only awesome thing to come from Texas!"

and then on the back, "Fans with hearts the size of Texas," with a bunch of signatures underneath.

Also, I think we'd still be able to eat together somewhere after even if we don't reserve a table. Nothing is going to be particularly busy that early in the morning, unless maybe we find an IHOP or Cracker Barrel or something to go to. Do we even know if anything in the mall (Cheesecake Factory, etc) will be open? I'm not really familiar with that area, so I don't know what our options would be. =\

How many wristbands are they giving out? because if its a lot it may take a while for everyone to get through. I mean it could be a couple hour difference between for those at the front of the line and those at the end of the line?? just a thought, I've never been to one so I don't know how it works.

And the only thing about the reservation thing is that it will make it easier if they can prepare a table big enough and it makes it easier to find each other if you can say you are there for reservations under someones name.

I think we need to start getting a count of who all is coming. So everyone post yes, no, maybe if you want to meet up. And also put the number of people coming with you (including yourself)

maybe -1 (as long as I get a wristband, which will probably still be up in the air until the day before.)

Yes- 3 (four total).

We should probably set the reservation for a later time and we can all just meet up then. Usually the signing itself will take a couple of hours. It probably wont be done until the late afternoon. Does anyone know what time it officially starts?

And, I really like the idea for the t-shirt. I think that she'll like is alot.

Oooh, is the plan to meet after the signing now? XD My bad. Earlier they were talking about meeting after we all got our books. If that's the case, then I'd have

Yes - 2

for sure, if I get directions to wherever we're meeting. If we do it after we get the books, then at this point it's maybe 2. I'm trying to convince my brother to go, but he has to see if he can change his exam schedule. Haha. Oh, the things we do for Stephenie... :P

I love the t-shirt idea! :D

And did y'all know that the guy from twilightguy.com is planning to go? I don't know if any of you have been keeping up with that, but he's pretty funny.

Um, I probably wouldn't be able to meet up after getting my book. My mom has to get back to work. And I suppose school would be a good thing to consider for me, heh. I'm still trying to convince my mom to take me out there in the morning to get the tickets. She seems rather hesitant to be missing work. But, I'll work my persuasive charms on her. (Which, unfortunately, are sadly lacking. But then again, she's a push-over, so I don't need much cajoling powress.)

But! After/before the signing should be fine. Before might be fun.
Anyways, so I guess one? Maybe two.
I have to solidify my plans a bit more before I give a definitive answer, heh. xD

who else is excited about tomorrow!!! I'll be relieved once I have the ticket in my hand!!!

And I'm going to have to back out of the get together. Its just going to be to hard to do it after since these things can take a long time, and I don't want to just be hanging out for a couple hours by myself.

Hopefully I can meet some fellow Twilighters at a BD release party.
