Last Call for Manip Monday

Well, at least Illinois didn't get hit with the 6-10" of snow they were predicting. It ended up being closer to 4", which was driveable and meant I didn't have to waste another day off of work due to weather. That's one good thing I can say about this Monday. I always feel better looking at all of the fanmade Robart and videos, though, so the day is looking up.

Sparkle for Twilight has a beautiful blog and has created two gorgeous wallpapers using Eclipse images and quotes. If you are not trying to stay Twipure, please click here to check them out!

I don't have a new manip for this post because I haven't seen anything lately that surpasses ones I've used in previous Manip Monday posts or the recent Details photo shoot. Let's face it, nothing compares to the reality that is Rob. He is beautiful enough on his own. Honolulu Girl at True Blood Twilight put this video together, which may save the day : )

Personal Note

When I started my blog, I didn't have any expectations. It started because I enjoyed looking up pictures of Rob and sharing them with my co-workers who got me started reading the books, etc. One of my co-workers, who I had told about Twitarded, mentioned she had a family blog and that it was easy to set up. She encouraged me to start my own so that they all would have a place to go to see pictures and get information about Rob and company. I had no idea I would fall in love with it and become addicted. However, running a blog should be fun. Right now, it's not.

I was recently asked to be honest. Well, my blog couldn't be more honest. It's my real name. It's my real profile. It's my real hometown. My real-life family, friends, and co-workers read it sometimes. I've let it go too far. If my blog were anonymous, I could say and do whatever I wanted without fear. But it's not.

Trust me, you won't be getting rid of me that easily. I will still follow blogs and, of course, all things Rob; but as far as posting goes, I will take it one day at a time. I think that MC at The Cougar's Den has it right. She posts when she has time and when she really feels like she has something to say. I don't want to give up everything for the sake of blogging, which is what seems to have happened to me. I've also found myself apologizing or being apologized to lately. I hate conflict and don't ever want to be the cause of it.

Don't forget, there's my Bucket List guitar lessons, with the goal of learning Never Think at the very least. There's my mad Photoshop skillz to build on for PicSpam at RobMusement. There's the New Moon DVD Release Party to attend, hosted by MC at The Cougar's Den. I'd like to figure out how to make videos and gifs. There's Drunk Mad Libs at Twilight SagaPalooza on Friday nights, even if I have to do it from the hotel or the restaurant bathroom (right, Mox?). There's a ff rolling around in my head that I'd like to write, and lots of ff I've yet to read. There are lots of Twilight cast member movies coming up I want to see, etc., etc., or yada, yada.

This is also my son's last year of college baseball. It's the perfect time to take a break. We will be following the team on their spring training trip again this year and throughout the season, which ends in late May. There's no place I'd rather be than on the road watching his games.

It's crazy how much all of you have come to mean to me in such a short amount of time. I appreciate you stopping by and commenting more than you will ever know, even when I cause scrollitis, a phrase coined by Mrs. P at TwiBite ; )

So I leave you with this. Rob's music. It's what pushed me over the edge into Robsanity in the first place. It's my favorite song of his and seems fitting to close out this post. It may be the closest I get to seeing him perform live, too, although I sure hope not.

Shout Out Sunday

I love Shout Out Sundays, and I hate Shout Out Sundays. I love looking back over the week in my Robuniverse, but I hate that tomorrow is Monday and the start of another work week.

Always, Rob.

When I looked back at the week at Twitarded, there was a definite theme – Eclipse. JJ and STY basically flipped a coin to see who would get to see it all and who would try and remain pure. JJ "won" the coin toss and the right to go nuts. You would think that was a match made in Heaven. Who knew?!



The bloggy world as we know it practically shut down when Mrs. P announced that she was taking a mini-vacation and would be MIA last weekend. I kid you not. Luckily, I was able to keep in touch with her via internet service on her cell, but my bloggy world did not right itself until she got back. I know a lot of you felt it too.

And unless you're living under a rock, you all know that Rob attended the BAFTA Awards tonight. Clearly, he read this post and heeded Mrs. P's advice.

Yes, Mrs. P, I wore a black suit,
white shirt, and skinny tie ;)

How cute is he?!!

Bel Ami-length sideburns; confirmation he won't be sporting a (real) stache for the movie; and proof that they did NOT need to paint his lips for the Twilight Saga

I would be the last person to give fashion advice (I'm such a tomboy), but even I am left wondering what this girl was thinking. If you went through the trouble of waiting in line for hours to get a front-row spot on the red carpet AND hit the freaking lottery when he actually stops and poses for a photo with you, do you leave the pink and black gloves on? Hell. Do you even wear them in the first place?! Mrs. P???

My Rob Addiction
All of the above photos were swiped from my newest blog addiction. You can also go there to check out videos of Rob walking the red carpet and presenting an award.

Walk With Mrs. P
Mrs. P relieved some of our stress by rolling out a second blog – Walk With Mrs. P. It's totally non-Twilight and already proving to be a fun bitch session.

For the love of RPattz
I've said it before, and I'll say it again. RPG gets me. Do you see these gorgeous eyes? To see the rest of this picture and more, check out her blog.

Ramblings of a Latchkey Wife

It doesn't matter what LKW posts. Without fail, it makes me laugh. Her loyal commentor VitaminR is also a riot. Both of them are spawns of Twitarded, which probably explains it all ;)

Our Life on NO List
This blog was recommended to me by Mrs. P at TwiBite, and these girls are sassy.

There's always something fun to do at the Park, even a Rob crossword puzzle. And she has the biggest collection of Rob pics in the bloggy universe.

Tigerlily's Tirade
This newest addition to my favorite day of the week, Friday, always leaves me smiling.

Tina's Been Rob'd
This is cute and naughty all at the same time. It's a letter to her "grandkids."

True Blood Twilight
I love Honolulu Girl, her blog, and her awesome videos. Here's one more reason to love her. She let her Twibestie, KP, do a guest post. Funny stuff.

Twi-sted Edbrella
They hit 100 Followers this week, too. Congrats again, girls!! There's always room for more under the Edbrella (or in the sheltered corner), so don't be shy. They aren't ;)

Twilight Mommy
Another find of Mrs. P's. If successful, the authors of this blog will make this contest a recurring post.

Twilight SagaPalooza
Who knew that a Rabbit could cause so much controversy. I love being an honorary member of The Saga Mafia.

twilight, travel, and treats
I cannot say enough about this blog. There is absolutely something for everyone.

So Twired Sarah wrote a post about one of my favorite places, and the internal conversation she had with another customer is priceless.

On a side note, thanks to everyone who usually stops by and comments. My son was home from college this weekend because his baseball coach gave the team time off when their games were cancelled. I didn't do much blogging and fell behind acknowledging comments. Please know that they were very much appreciated. I still hope to get them. Hope you had a great weekend!

This may be my favorite KStew quote to date.

*Updated Note: I know not everyone is a KStew fan or a member of the I Give A Crapsten club like me, but she really does confirm news about Breaking Dawn in the video clip. And after the pictures, there is a Jib Jab video from a bloggy bestie. Thanks.

Kristen talked to MTV about one of the more anticipated sequences in the film story, the proposal scene.

"I didn't want to look stupid. I didn't want it to look like kids getting married. You know what I mean? I wanted to be, like, 'Oh! Wow! I would say yes too!' You know what I mean? So I don't know how you do that. You try to do it for real, and it felt good. I hope it turned out alright."

To read the entire MTV article and watch the clip, click here.

So why do I like that quote so much? Rob proposed to her onscreen. She got to play it real and accept his proposal. She said it felt good. HELL. TO. THE. YES! (For the record, I got engaged at 17 and married at 18. Not because I had to - because I wanted to. We were married five years before we had our daughter. We'll be married 30 years in October, so it can work. Just sayin'.)

I'd love to post the 'Eclipse' still for this, but I love my Twipure Followers more, so I'll take a different approach. (Source: Harper's Bizarre)

You are so me.

Time to pull an SM and skip over the sex.

It's also awesome to hear Kristen say that she expects 'Breaking Dawn' to start filming in November, even though she's not sure if it will be one or two movies.

Interviewer: "And then I'm hearing also that 'Breaking Dawn' is going to be like split into two movies. Is that true?"

Kristen: "That's. Maybe. It's still sort of up in the air. We don't know yet. But. It'll. We'll probably start shooting in November. So it's, it's happening pretty soon."

Here's the entire interview with cast members from 'The Yellow Handkerchief.'

This is off topic, but I just have to share. One of my new bloggy besties, twilightcupcake at Twilight, Travel, and Treats, liked the Jib Jab I did for So Twired Jen at Twired so well, that she decided to make a few for her RL friends. She even made one for me and emailed it to me this morning. I was trying to remember who I had put for my Freebie 5 at Twired when I pushed play and started LMAO! Twilightcupcake knows me well. There really isn't anyone on my list these days other than Rob. Thanks again, TC! (FYI - TC lives in Vancouver and has been blogging about her family's experience at the Winter Olympics, too. Check it out!)

Don't forget DML at Twilight SagaPalooza starts at 7:30 pm CST and twitter jail can't be far behind. Cheers!!

Beer Goggles

Here is a definition of beer goggles according to the Urban Dictionary: Modification of your opinion of an ugly chick based on the amount of beer you have drunk. The more you drink, the better looking the girls are.

Example: Hey, did you see that hag that Rob is hitting on? He's got his beer goggles on again.

I shit you not. That was the example. I'm sure Mrs. P at TwiBite is going to love that one, as will mmMoxie from Twilight SagaPalooza, who is fond of calling my Robsten love the T-word. Not sure how I ended up with a Super Bloggy BFF and a bloggy bestie who do not share my Robsten love, but somehow it all works : )

Speaking of my bloggy bestie Mox, I mentioned her in my post about being put in Twitter Jail. I had gone to a surprise 40th birthday party and met someone who reminded me of her. I had had just enough to drink to ask my husband's cousin to take a picture of the two of us, and this gal had had just enough to drink to agree to having her picture taken with a complete stranger. The real Mox then commented that she couldn't wait to see the resemblance that I saw through my beer goggles.

Well, I did indeed have my beer goggles on that night, but you tell me what you think.

Derble and Real Mox

Me and Faux Mox

I rest my case. Well, tomorrow is Friday, so you know what that means – time for Drunk Mad Libs at Twilight SagaPalooza and twitter jail. I'll be wearing my beer goggles. See you there!

*UPDATE* I can't believe how many of you thought I was really wearing those goggles. Apparently, I Photoshopped them on a little too well. Here is the original picture just for the record. (Not that I look any better, actually.) LMAO!

Okay. Fine. I can't leave you without a pretty picture of Rob. I feel very protective of him.

Wet Wednesday

What a wet week it has been for we Rob fans. Good grief! Did I dream that all of this happened since we last got together? It can't be real. He can't be real. (Click on the Source links for more pictures.)

I'll have what she's having. Just sayin'.

Remember Me Behind The Scenes Video

For you girls who don't like spoilers, try hitting play and closing your eyes. That way you can listen to Rob and cast members Emilie de Ravin, Pierce Brosnan, and Chris Cooper talk about Rob's acting without seeing any movie footage. It's worth it just to listen to Rob talk in his beautiful British accent. *sigh*

See how much I love you girls? I'm not posting any of them here. They're still out there. I thought we'd take a look back at the face that launched it all instead. It's still Wet Wednesday worthy.

Oldies but goodies.
Time for some music to scroll by.

Hold up. Someone got cropped out.

That's better.

The lighting on those pictures makes me think of the movie The Unbearable Lightness of Being. So I went in search of a quote from the movie and found this:

"The brain appears to possess a special area which we might call poetic memory and which records everything that charms or touches us, that makes our lives beautiful." (5.12.6)

Rome Rob, Hobolicious Rob, Chippendale Rob?

Today is So Twired Jen's 30th birthday. I decided to send her a Jib Jab birthday wish. When I was looking through the video choices, I came across this one that featured five dancers. This reminded me of Jen's recent post about her Freebie 5. So in honor of her list, I sent this Jib Jab with the note that it was the best I could do to get her Freebie 5 to her for her birthday :)

A little Rome Rob and Hobolicious Rob before we go.
