Twitards, Vol. 1

The “it factor” can be defined as someone with je ne sais quoi, or the indefinable something that makes someone special. Most often, it is applied to celebrities that seem to radiate charisma and charm. Determining the “it factor” can be a matter of taste, viewpoints, and preferences.

The “it factor” can apply not only to celebrities but also to politicians, to people seeking work, or to religious leaders. Mother Theresa eschewed the fashionable world and lived a life of privation to serve others. Her “it factor” had everything to do with the spiritual way in which she lived her life. People would wait for days for an audience with her.

So let me see if I have this right. You have the “it factor” if you:

  • have an indefinable something that makes you special
  • are a celebrity that radiates charisma and charm
  • live your life in a spiritual way
  • have people waiting for days for an audience with you
I guess the staff of a certain magazine (It Which Must Not Be Named) didn’t get the memo. The one that stated it was their job to choose someone who has the “it factor” based on America’s current taste, viewpoints, and preferences and put that person on the cover of their special yearly issue. Well the residents of Twitardia got the memo, and our decision was unanimous.

Well how do I get myself a subscription to this baby!!!! Beautiful magazine cover, babe!!!! (And might I add, did we pop our "fuck" cherry with this post? I'm not sure if you used that word yet...way to go girl)

sprtzmom1721 said...

Yes, Mrs. P, I did. Leave it to you to notice. I must have hovered over the "submit" button for a full five minutes before deciding to go through with it. I've decided that the people I'm worrying about offending don't check my blog anyway. Guess I need to add a disclaimer now ;)

Mrs. P @ TwiBite said...

LMAO!!!!! I knew it!!!! HAHAHA!!!! I'm actually belly laughing in my kitchen right now....LOLOL!!!!

sprtzmom1721 said...

I thought I told you to go to bed! I just put up the damn disclaimer. Good night. For real this time! *BIG HUG*

Stan said...

Fantastic mag! I agree with MrsP, I'll have me a subscription to that piece of loveliness please!

Am sitting in blissful ignorance of what all the offence and disclaimer stuff, etc means though lol!

I really need to look at making Twi-sted Edbrella as pretty as your blog with everyone's links. I'm such a techy-fail!

sprtzmom1721 said...

@Stan - Mrs. P "outed me." I'm a potty mouth in RL and on every other blog I visit, but up until the faux mag cover I created for this post, I hadn't used the f-bomb on my site. So I felt compelled to put a disclaimer up in the top lh corner just in case. And mainly because Mrs. P is so naughty with her comments ;) In fact, if Mrs. P and I ever joined blogging forces, I'd be the STY to her JJ :)

Stan said...

Aaah, congratulations on popping your f'ing cherry in that case!

Gotta love Mrs. P! xx

Jelena said...

Who did that magazine whose title we shall not mention put on their cover?

sprtzmom1721 said...

@Jelena - Not that I have anything against him, but it was Johnny Depp :(

TwiWeasel said...

Congrats on popping your fucking "fuck" cherry! Bwhahaha! Let me just say that this mag cover is *Halelluia Chorale* AWESOME!!! I would buy it in a freaking heartbeat (and then hide it from my husband, of course.) And yes, RPattz was ROBBED (ha)... Johnny Depp is hot, sure (especially as Captain Jack Sparrow) but he is NOTHING compared to The Precious!! Savvy?

sprtzmom1721 said...

@TwiWeasel - "Halelluia Chorale" You kill me! So what's it going to take to get your mug up in my list of BFFs (aka Followers). Maybe a glossy 8x10 of the faux cover? *begging*

Lisa

Mrs. P @ TwiBite said...

I apologize for turning the focus of this post from a beautifully crafted magazine cover to the popping of your cherry. Wait...no I don't. HA!!! XOXOXOX

sprtzmom1721 said...

@Mrs. P - You're right. You don't ;) Did you EVER go to bed last night/this morning?!

Z Any Mouse said...

Fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck! Wow, that felt good! Now mine is popped too. I think I need a cigarette, even though I don't smoke.

RP is the sexiest man alive, no doubt!

Team Six Pack said...

Um seriously want it... NOW! lol. I can't explain the hotness that is Rob. smoking is a deal breaker for me and yet I'd forgive him right away and he makes me want to pick up a nasty habit myself!

p.s. at first I thought this post was going to be a "most wanted list" of our mugs & infamous twitarded behavior. I'm glad it's just rob ;)

pps. the new lay out looks fantastic!

Mama Cougar said...

Well FMRAaWMR! <--Fuck Me Roughly Against a Walgreen's Magazine Rack!

Agreed. JDepp is a yummy slice of man cake, but TPO is the cake, the ambrosia ice cream and a heaping goblet of dessert wine IMHO.

LOVES the Mag cover....so stealing it.

MC

rottymama said...

I'll take one please to go!

sprtzmom1721 said...

@Z Any Mouse - What did you say? Not sure I got it the first time. LOL!

@Team Six Pack - Apparently no one could explain the hotness of Rob to the dipshits at P#*ple either. And I know that it's not healthy for The Pretty, but I love smokin' hot, slightly scruffy Rob the best! (Glad you like the blog design. Dana's been great to work with.)

@Mama Cougar - I finally figured out that the path to your Den is via twitter ;) Your FMRAaWMR win's best laugh of the day btw (Did I just abbreviate?!). The image is there for the taking. ENJOY!

@rottymama - Right click, save, and take it on home with you :)

Mrs. P @ TwiBite said...

@Stan---give me all your passwords and I'll fix the Edbrella up REAL NICE...filled with links to certain other blogs that just totally rock...blogs with the word 'Bite" in them and stuff...

Snarkier said...

He SO shoulda had the "not-named" mag award/recognition - and I looove Johnny Depp! Just not as much as...other people. Natch.

: )

If there were a Twitards mag, I'd want it to look JUST like that!

sprtzmom1721 said...

@STY - *big sigh of relief* You have no idea how much I was sweating your approval. Well, maybe you do, actually ;)

And let me be the first to say that if you ever decide to put a mag together, I'm first in line to be on the design team.

<3 you guys BIG time.

Lisa

Twilove1 said...

Not to diss Johnny Depp, but editors at "The Magazine That Must Not Be Named" must have been under a Confundus Spell, cause they definitely got it wrong this time. Love the Twitards mag mock-up!

@Team Six Pack- I know exactly what you mean! I am so anti-smoking, yet it seems to be totally hot when Rob does it.

Jelena said...

Er... well, sorry everyone, especially you sprtzmom, but to me Johnny Depp will always, always be #1, like so forever, I could fucking tattoo it. :D

*runs away ducking and screaming as a pile of tomatoes is flying her way*

sprtzmom1721 said...

@Twilove1 - Good to hear from you. I noticed you were MIA most of the night. But then again, I turned in early (gasp!). While I was stalking the internet for all things Rob (is there anything else out there?!), I actually fell asleep in front of the computer. When I opened my eyes and realized what I had done, I called it a night.

At any rate, I'm glad you liked the Twitards cover. For me, all roads lead back to the land of Twitarded. That's where I popped my blogger cherry, where I was inspired to try my own blog, and where I met fellow Twitards like you :)

TwiWeasel said...

*sing song* Oh Lisa...I am now a follower. Where's my 8 x 10 glossy? Oh, yeah, click,save, print! Got it!!

@ Jelena - Not Johnny Depp...Captain Jack Sparrow!! Savvy?

sprtzmom1721 said...

@TwiWeasel - *sing song while doing the happy dance* Thanks for the early Christmas present!!

@Jelena - I love Johnny Depp, too (especially as Jack Sparrow as TwiWeasel mentioned), but the cover should be given to the "it" guy right now. And on this or any other planet, Rob's the "it" guy right now. I still think it's an epic fail on their part. And I'd never throw anything at you for stating your opinion here; unless, of course, you're not following my blog. Just sayin'!!

Jelena said...

@TwiWeasel and @sprtzmom - Jack Sparrow is definitely not my fave JD character. I love Johnny because of who he is (not that I know him, lol)

Good thing I'm a follower, Lisa. Phew! And you're absolutely right, Rob's definitely the "it" guy now. It was just my undying devotion to JD that made me write my previous post. :D

Jelena said...

Woopsie, I didn't realize that I didn't click "Follow" on your blog before. I definitely corrected that error, as you can see. My bad. Sorrys! No tomatoes, please.

Btw, I replied to your review.

sprtzmom1721 said...

@Jelena - I like what I see!! Btw, I got your reply to my review and tried to reply back but it said that since I'm a new member, I won't be able to send direct emails until December 6th. Basically, what I wanted to say was that *blushing wildly* I would have been okay if you had gone "there" with your story. And I don't have a problem suspending the ss issue in the name of ff ;) I also commented over on MC's blog that I didn't know there was another chapter. Geez, girlie. I'm never going to get my Christmas tree up!

spellbound said...

Love it! I don't know what they were thinking, Rob has NO competition at all. But I guess if it had to be someone other than Rob, I'm glad it was Johnny. He is the only one who even comes close to Rob IMO.

Stan said...

Mrs. P, thanks so much for your offer, emailing you now! xx

(LOL at 'links to blogs with the word bite in them ;o) )

sprtzmom1721 said...

@spellbound - Exactly!

@Stan & Mrs. P - I was trying to work on a button for Twi-sted last night (Stan, I just needed to know which NM umbrella you ordered [black and gold or navy and gold] and if you wanted to use that one for the button or your old one). I'd still be happy to do it if you want me to and send that info to Mrs. P. If you're going to do it Mrs. P, let me know when it's ready so I can add it to the Blogs I Heart :) Thanks, girls!
