I don't have $250 to blow right now, though (and if I didn't get the Bella, you know we'd never hear the end of it), so Serafina Pekkadoll's going to be my priority because SERAFINA OMG, and if the Twilights sell out
ETA, 7:08 pm: Okay, I'm not going to hit post until the ABC red carpet's over, but I am here and getting down to business.
