You mean you didn't get an invitation?

Well, it was one swell bash, that wrap party that Twilight: Eclipse held at the aquarium in Stanley Park here in Vancouver.

Hosted by director David Slade, just about everyone was there. Yep, Rob Pattinson was there among the belugas and otters, smartly turned out in a trademark baseball cap, eschewing cricket whites.

And the crowd held its breath as on his arm one. Kristen Stewart blew the party off, and who can blame her? It's not like she's hankering for more attention during the media magnet that is Twilight.

Oh, you should have been there. It was great.

I could have danced all night. If I'd been invited. Don't get out much anymore. I just sit in a corner, alone, reading the OK website.

But Rob, Kristen and Taylor Lautner are up for frolicking in the Big Apple in a week or show after the Eclipse shooting wraps. The Twilight trio will be in New York to pump the Nov. 20 opening of New Moon, says the venerable Plan to get up early to watch the Today Show triple play, starring Pattinson on Nov. 18, Stewart Nov. 19 and Lautner on the day the new Twilight dawns.

Meanwhile, you naughty Twi-hards, RPattz's rendition of Edward Cullen won the Pearl and Dean poll, asking movie fans who is the best vampire ever. Rob won with a whopping 38 per cent of those polled. Wonder how many of you put Mr. Pattinson over the top?

It's enough to make Max Schreck turn over in his grave. Schreck, you'll recall, played creepy Graf Orlok in the 1922 classic Nosferatu. Looks like dreamboat trumps terror in the race to outdo the undead.

And how does Rob win the hearts of so many. Could be his screen persona got a little boost from the decidedly dead dreamboat, James Dean.

Pattinson told USA Today that the Dean classic, Rebel Without a Cause, "was a big influence" on the first Twilight flick. “It influenced the hairdo and stuff.”

And we always thought Sonny Tufts was the American icon that filled the British star's sails.

Of course, Albion's take two on Jimmy Dean was asked the now-mandatory question: Uh, so ahh, Rob, whattzit with you and all the fame and adoration and stuff...

“I’m not entirely sure what it is,” he said. “I’ll probably realize afterward how I could have controlled it a little bit more. But I am still like a deer in headlights.”

Oh well, at least you get invited to parties. Last party I was invited to was my sister's 12th birthday when I was five. Mom made her invite me.
