I know,right? I'm pretty excited too!!
So of course, this has been an insane week..with all the Bel-Ami anticipation & now all the hot new Robporn from Water for Elephants. I've never been into the whole "blue-collar" sort of guy..but Rob could probably make me
So I guess, for my first post I'll just kind of introduce myself and give a little back-story on my Robsession...
I'm 42-Single Mom of 3 boys-knew nothing about Twilight until my friend "dragged" me along to see the movie 'cause she didn't want to go alone. I almost feel like that's where my life split in half and I was reborn..dramatic? Maybe..True? Absolutely. Sure Cedric was a cute little character...but he was now totally
What do you mean Voldemort killed me & I came back as a Vampire?!
Are you fucking kidding me?
Are you fucking kidding me?
The Twilight DVD came out, and I watched it several times with my youngest. My middle son refused to watch it because "it was stupid and lame and he wasn't a loser" LOL..gotta love kids.
Anyway, for one reason or another, he ended up sitting & watching the WHOLE movie...and a convert was made!! He was immediately Team Edward (bless his soul) and he wanted to read the books. Now, this is a kid who has never read a book willingly in his life-not even Harry Potter (which is not stupid/lame) so you can imagine how excited I was!! Whatever gets them to read, right? Even better still that it was my beloved Edward. When he finished New Moon, he HATED Jacob..nobody could even mention Jacob's name (which was funny because all my so-called friends are Team Jacob) without illiciting "he can burn in hell" from him.
I went to Comic-Con last year-I completely lucked out, because I had a ticket only for Thursday, and that was the day Twilight was going to be there!! I saw the movie again at the theater in San Diego, and all the stars were there & did a Q&A before the movie..we got all the special promo stuff that wasn't out yet & a signed poster. It was amazing!!
I saw New Moon at midnight, and it was so exciting! To see all the crazed fans (and most of them were not pre-teens as the media would like to condescendingly infer all the time). It was hysterical! I have never heard so much moaning outside of a bedroom before! All of my coworkers that went with me like Twilight but are not Twitards for sure. They were semi-apalled/shocked by all the grown women swooning over Jacob openly LOL (they did it too-but privately). There was 1 guy in our group..and he was completely floored!!
My office cubicle is wall to wall Edward/Rob..and people say "oh, you're the Twilight Girl". My coworkers/friends all get me Twilighty stuff for Bdays/Holidays and I change my desktop daily..because there is just too much Rob smexiness to just look at the same pic day after day :-)
I kinda think some people are perturbed by the bag of blood I have hanging...their prob-not mine!
I've seen Remember Me twice in the theater..bawled both times..I really thought it was a great movie-I loved Rob in it-I did not focus on the whole 9/11 aspect as it was such a tiny part of it. I think if that's all anyone took from it, they missed the point. Just my opinion...
Like all of you, I found Blogs..and now I have no free time lol.. I have my Eclipse tix in hand and am seeing Rob in all his sexy glory in IMAX!!! Doesn't get much better than that!
Next up I'm planning on reading Bel-Ami & WFE...I'm beyond excited for every project Rob is attached to!
Does anyone know where I can get Rob's laughter as a ringtone? That would just be the Ultimate!
Wake Up! Ok-enough about my boring life...anyone else have any interesting "How they became Twilight Fans" stories? *Pulls up a chair* Spill It..In the Comments..
Sidenote: I have lots of pics crammed on my comp from a clusterfuck of places...if you created any of them, please let me know so we can properly credit :-)
