All's Vanity Fair in Love and War

Why must he always have a hat on? And why THAT hat?


Where do I start?
My God.

Right now...
I'm just exhausted from reading all the bullshit drama.
"So why do you read it, Rose?"
Excellent question.
Brilliant question.

I guess I read it because I'm still intoxicated with Robert.
That will never change.
I still want to read about him...
I still want to read what he has to say.
The other stuff...
Not so much.

There is nothing sexier than Robert with a piano or guitar.

Random thoughts.

1. Rob mentions Kristen in the article...
But if you are looking for some declaration of love
You will be waiting for a long time.
That's not gonna happen.
And if you were hoping for some sort of denial?
That's not gonna happen either.
I know there is massive foaming about Kristen
being mentioned at all...
But she is in his life.
It's only natural.
Get used to it.

2. Robert sounds exhausted with the whole roller coaster of Twilight
The ups and downs that come with great fame.
He doesn't sound ungrateful...
He just sounds tired.
And who can blame him?
Can you imagine people screeching and screaming at you all the time?
People stalking you...
Trying to GET you?
And this has been going on for years now.
I don't doubt that he wishes he could just get
back to being 'just' Robert...
and live his life the way he wants to.


3. The whole 'was he/wasn't he' in LA this weekend.
JFC.

I'm fucking dizzy from all the shit that has been spewed.

There were numerous sightings of Rob/Kristen in L.A. this weekend.
Busy busy busy.
Vets, conservatories, parties, shopping.
Is any of it true?
Does it matter?

The creepy thing was someone produced a supposed
'first class seating chart'
from a flight taken on Feb 25th.
LAX TO VANCOUVER
Robert Pattinson was on the list.
I don't know if this is even close to legit...
I have no knowledge of airline stuff.
But WTF?
Honestly... it looks like she got it out of the trash...
(it's all stained... what the hell?)
So...
Supposedly this person just happened to take a picture
of a very private and guarded document....
(cutting off the year and other info)
AND
she said she took a pic of sleeping "Rob"
(No, that's not fucking stalky creepy at all)
which of course didn't turn out...

My thoughts?
It's all a bit too convenient for me.
Rob takes a COMMERCIAL flight 
from LAX to VANCOUVER
and ONE person sees him?
One.
No paps are hanging out at either LAX or VC?
Really?
Like the paps in VC aren't fucking waiting for this?
I'm thinking that this chart isn't what it seems...
or
Maybe Rob just wasn't on this flight at all.
A name on a list is nothing more than that.
It's no guarantee he was there.
And come on...
I admit to curiosity about the whole thing
but looking up flights/airlines/airports
to prove a point?
No thanks.

Bottom Line?
Whether Rob went back to Vancouver the same day
or a different day...
They did spend time together in L.A.
(So much for the 'exit strategy')
And I'm guessing they will continue to spend time together...
In fact...
I'll be willing to bet that they are together
RIGHT NOW!


*sigh*

4. With every interview...
Every public appearance
People have all these expectations of what THEY think
Rob and Kristen should do.
And when they don't do or say what they want 
They lose their minds.
Neither Rob or Kristen will perform for you.
And considering all the fucking bullshit
they deal with on daily basis...
Doesn't wanting to just KEEP their relationship
for themselves...
Not talk about it...
Not sell it...
make perfect sense?


5. I'm sad.
I'm sad because Rob sounded so raw...
so completely depleted
And I've always felt so protective over him.
I can't help it.
I just want Robert to be happy.
Happy Rob is good.
Happy Rob = Happy Rose

I'm looking at myself here...
my blog
my part in all this.
Do I contribute to Rob's sadness?
Does my writing my opinion about the daily happenings
in his relationship with Kristen...
make things worse?
(and I don't mean that in a 'Rob reads my blog' kinda way)

I hope not.
I know that I don't scream at Rob.
Nor do I follow him around the country and hide 
in the shadows ready to pounce.
I don't stalk him.
I don't harass him.
I adore him and Kristen... from afar...
and only have good things to say about both of them.
I support his career 100%
and Kristen's.
And I don't hate on someone he obviously adores.

This makes it all worth it...


 6. The good stuff.
Martin.
Rob was so incredibly sweet and kind to the dog...
And isn't Martin the cutest name EVER?

 Rob sounds exhausted, but we don't need
to scrutinize and twist every syllable.
Just take his words
Enjoy them.
Because they are honest...
Vulnerable.
They are Rob.

The whole Twilight thing
It is winding down...
Slowly.
He will get his life back.
He will have a wonderful career
and WFE will be a massive success for him.



And he found Kristen.
I'm guessing he is grateful for having her in his life.
Someone to not only share the whirlwind that fame has become
but who can make him smile...
Like only she can do.
Someone who has made it all worthwhile.
Someone who makes him HAPPY.

This post is brought to you by the letter *C*

C for Creepy.
Stalky.
Who even THINKS of taking a pic of a passenger list?

This is why Rob can't relax.
Can't live his life.

Creepy people who cross the line
again and again.
I'm exhausted just reading about it...
Can you imagine having to live it?

I want to hug Robert.

Rob Gives Good Hug.

Bye for now

Vanity Fair pics are beautiful.

I wish some peace and relaxation for him.

Kay said...

I really liked the article, even though he sounds tired and raw and vulnerable.......it shows the funny, kind and sweet Rob that is so intriguing to so many of us. How he and Kristen deal with what they do yet remain so grounded is amazing.

Have a great day Rose and everyone lurking out there in Roseland. :D

Sydney said...

Rose, you bring up a good point. It's one thing for haters to dislike what he does and says...I don't agree with that either, but it is what it is. But it's another entirely when his so-called "fans," the "Robsessed," are disappointed in what he does, says, thinks.

Are you sure you're really a fan? I mean, if he hangs with people you can't STAND (and he does), if he says things you can't STAND (and he does), if he does things you can't STAND (and he does), perhaps you should reevaluate whether you're a fan of his at all.

I'm pretty unconditional in my support. To me, that's what a fan is. I like both Rob and Kristen. They happen to be together a lot, so for me, that's kind of a bonus. But even if they weren't, I would still be a fan and respect their choices.

These hatestens or whatever you wanna call them...the Kristen haters...they are the ones who absolutely cannot tell the difference between Edward and Rob. They are the ones who have him on this unrealistic pedestal. They discount who Rob actually IS. They objectify the shit out of him.

Instead of burying your head in the sand, and pretending he isn't doing what it is obvious he IS doing, perhaps you should find a new target upon which you can project your delusions. He will not miss you.

Kay said...

SueBee!!!!!!!!! Miss you, but gotta run. <3

Robin said...

Great post, Rose. I too felt sad for Rob when I read the VF article.

And no, I don't think you add to the problem by having your blog. You are supportive and protective of both Rob and Kristen and give fans a venue to love either or both of them in a sane way.

I love your eloquent and ballsy style.

dottie said...

I hope Rob (& Kristen,too) are seeing the light at the end of the Twilight tunnel now. They have given so much of themselves to that franchise. Kudos to them for keeping something for themselves.

It comforts me to think that even though the Twilight experience has been very "traumatic", it was worth it to them because they found each other.

Great job as always, Rose.

cityofglass920 said...

Great post as always. This Vanity Fair article is so insightful as to the craziness Rob has to deal with on a daily basis. Geez, I feel embarassed just hearing how some of these women behave, I mean really? Why would one have to need to be banging on windows when he's trying to have dinner and of all the things to be scream, you scream some absurdity about wanting to touch his hair? What could that possibly accomplish?
I hope these people who hacked into his e-mail got their just punishment? I mean, is nothing personal anymore? There are just no words for that type of behavior. Normal curiousity is one thing but that's just above and beyond crossing the line.
I mean, what other word aside from "traumatic" can you use to describe that madness. You can definitely see why they fight so hard to keep what is theirs personal and not share it with the world.

deb said...

I want to HUG him to Rose Love the sexy Vanity pic BUT thats OUR ROB he looks good in anything Hope he can find rest soon Thank You Rose YOU are A GOOD PERSON . DEB.

30 said...

Well Rose once again, This post proves why I come too your blog. I agree with you 150% on every word written here. No need to put anymore of my two sense in here.


Well I lied I do have too add this. The fucking stalker crazies make me want too rip THERE hair out. I really wish Rob and or his team would just once sue the crap out of these people. Who does this shit? Who checks a manifold list for an ACTOR? Who posts this shit on the internet? What kind of people act this way? I am literally scared for Rob and Kirsten both.

Oh and Teds board needs too be reported, the people who post there need to be investigated FULLY and prosecuted too the fullest. I was disgusted reading what I did this morning. Why I even went there I have no idea I am just gluten for punishment I guess.

Smitty said...

Rose great post.

CONGRATULATIONS! I read on Twitter that you are expecting triplets. My gosh how happy you must be. AND I read on Twitter that you are being nominated for MTV's Best Kiss too. Let's all get out and support Rose for the MTV Best Kiss Award.

I think I read on Twitter something about Tom moving too! Everything on Twitter is true so good luck with the triplets and the award and look for Tom to be moving into an apartment in Chicago or maybe Iowa?? Who knows but I'm sure Twitter will get it right!

angelica1 said...

Firstly,as someone who works in Aviation Security,that supposed passenger list, which I don't believe is current for several reasons which I'm not sharing, bugs the hell out of me! Do these brainless morons have any concept of the potential risk they could be subjecting him to if his travel arrangements are made public? Passenger lists were a secure document before 9/11,the level of security is even tighter now! Since "fan" is short for "fanatic", these people should look up the definition sometime,they epitomise it. Clearly,trying to be "right" is far more important to them than Rob's safety or happiness is.

And no Rose, you don't add to it. I'm pretty sure you're the kind of fan they actually want.

Rose said...

Thanks Smitts.
Yeah... Me and Tom are expecting triplets. Do you think the husband will mind? Doubt it.
I will just say its OK on Twitter... and it will be so.

angelica1 said...

Smitty - It's true about the triplets, Edward Bella and Jacob!

30 said...

Triplets? OUCH Rose that's gonna hurt. LOL

Hope said...

Rob looks as handsome as ever and I enjoyed the article even though the tone was sad in parts. However, Rob has a wonderful head on his shoulders. I admire that fact that he is an avid reader, works hard and remains professional on the set.

Wishing Rob and Kristen can take a LONG vacation to an island or somewhere and just relax. Hopefully they can make the time to do this in between their projects this spring/summer and the release of BD in the fall.

Oh...and the cover to me is Indiana Rob...and love Piano Rob too.

SupportRP said...

A beautiful man, a beautiful person. I'm feeling so sad I can barely stand it. I wish somehow Rob knew how much love and support and "no hysteria" is out here for him - and for Kristen too. How much we want to protect them. I would bet they don't get much, if any, positive reinforcement. I just wish they knew. Thank you Rose for giving us an honest, loving place to share our feelings about these two.

Soleil Anne said...

NO, you donot add to the problem.

Regular fans like us donot stalk,
lie, steal just to get near R/K & make their lives like HELL.

Like you I would just like to give him a HUG of reassurance that not all fans are cr*zy.

We love, respect,admire them from AFAR which I think they would like.

Soleil from Germany

oldcoach said...

I just thought I would say something. I don't post much but I read everyday. Love everything you have to say. But I get the impression from the article he is one tired young man. BD hadn't really started filming when this article was written. He must be exhausted by now. The pictures of Kristen at the airport make her look very tired also. I think they both need some serious down time. You could even see the dark circles under eyes. Love everything you write

Annie said...

Stupidity never had a better canvas than some of the idiots in the Twilight fandom who with the anonymity the internet offers, continue to show their ignorance and embarrass the rest of us continually!
-------------------------

I like the pics of Rob in this issue of VF.

@Rose: No, you don't add to it.......you are among the very few who make it tolerable.
Thank you!

angelica1 said...

Annie - That VF cover,he reminds me of another actor and I can't think who!

frenchothfan said...

Agreed with everything you said. As usual.

To be honest, I don't really see the point in trying to know where they are at every seconds. People freak out over whether they're in LA, or VC.. Together/Apart... Who cares? We know they're happy. How is it gonna help to know where they are all the times. It doesn't help at all. It's awfully stalkerish & unecessary, IMO.
We should just, be interested in their projects, like the fact that they make each other happy, like when there are pics of them together that come out. But we should stop it there. I never understood the need to know super ~sekrit things about them. Does it make people feel special just because they know stuff that others don't? Probably.. But it's not healthy to be soo interested in some people's lives. That's why I don't get the stalkers and psychos.

He sounded on the verge of being depressed because of all the hysteria surrounding twilight and I understand him. The number of psychos that follow him everywhere & think that they will one day be Mrs pattinson is scary as hell. And I still don't know how some people can't believe that Kristen & Rob are not together either. The number of people that hate Kristen just because of that is unbelievable.

Anyway. Staying positive. :) Keep being that amazing by making your posts. It's always a pleasure to read them. <3

itsyblue said...

I love your blog, and no I don't think you are contributing to the craziness.

When all this Robsten, Nonsten stuff started, my first thoughts were "I'm neither. I'm for whatever makes Rob happysten!" That is what is important - his happiness; which must be hard in all the nuttiness that is his life.

I will say one thing about Rob and Kristen. If a man EVER looks at me the way Rob looks at Kristen, I will follow him to the end of the earth.

He looks at her with such love you feel it. She makes him happy! Whether it's true love or friendship love, I don't care. I just want him to be happy and make wonderful movies for us to enjoy.

And music... I want Rob music.

Brewski said...

Hello fellow Roselanders.

Rose, great post. I couldn't agree more with your comments. Just when you think things can't get any worse for these two, you have people posting flight manifests. WTF! I am so beyond disgusted by the behaviour of this fandom that my heart truly aches for them.

Hang on Rob and Kristen. The insanity known as Twilight is almost over, and I believe with all my heart that bigger, brighter, and better days are awaiting you both.

Annie said...

Hi Angelica:

Are you thinking of a young Harrison Ford maybe?

angelica1 said...

Actually Annie, I think it's a young Paul Newman

Groovie said...

Great post!
And I agree! The sense of entitlement some "fans" feel they have is absurd.
I enjoyed the interview, it was insightful and genuine.
All we can do is hope some of the crazies recognize their behavior being pointed out & how much Rob hates that shit.

Once the twi craze dies down, life will hopefully be easier for Rob & Kristen and they can move on from it happily together with successful careers. I'm glad they have each other to lean on when things get crazy.
I know I will continue to support both of them and that support certainly isn't in the form of crazy screaming & stalking.

I'm digging the photos too; Nothing better than Rob at a piano! And I love the cover with the gator.

Hope u are all having a great day!

Annie said...

Paul Newman......Yes! :)

Annie said...

Be back soon.
Just one more thing before I go.....I think those idiots who are running off at the mouth misquoting what Rob said in VF, need a course in reading and comprehension. Seriously!

Kenzz said...

Hi Rose...

Like you, one of my first thoughts after reading the VF article was wondering if my own interest in these actors has contributed to his sad portrayal. After some introspection, I guess I'm left hoping that the type of enjoyment that those of us who "tune in" daily to your blog take from your words is appreciated on some level by these kids.

I certainly don't believe that your funny, devoted, loyal, and "intoxicated" musings would be perceived as adding to their traumatic experience.

I have to imagine that the stalkerish behavior of some of these creepy people goes away when Twilight is finally put to bed. Maybe then R & K can move on in a more normal fashion and live the life they so obviously crave.

Peace to everyone out there in Roseland...

Birdie said...

Rose,
I think from reading all the comments here you should realize that your blog is not part of the problem. Everyone here reflects what you write and are HERE because they support and admire both Rob and Kristen from afar. No one here stalks, obsesses or objectifies either of these two. I don't think it would go down well for them if they did.
The article is bittersweet, but I think it also gives a little insight to this remarkable young man. It describes a man that is inquisitive, hard-working,kind,well-read, humble and genuine....Yeah, the list goes on. Not alot of that in Hollywood these days. So for those that are new to him and/or think they KNOW him, learn something. Maybe the loons could take it down a few notches and give him some space.
Great post as always. Good luck with the triplets. I think you and Rob deserve that hug!

Melinda said...

Lovely post today Rose. Haven't read the article since I plan on buying it.


I feel for the both of them. Neither crave being famewhores. So it is hard to be thrust into something like this and try to navigate it.

I do believe it will get better. There is strength in numbers and they have each other. And a great support system around them.


As for the creepy manifest. Well people are wackados. I did read with a grain of salt that that manifest was old. Someone in the airline industry said no such flight number currently exists for flights from LAX to Vancouver.

Angelica- Rob is a young Paul Newman. You got that right. How is your back? Did you decide what you are going to do?


Hope everyone is enjoying their day so far.

30 said...

Have any of you ever made homemade pizza? I just made it, so yummy. :)

Freddie said...

I haven’t read the VF article yet myself, so I haven’t been able to form my own impression, but by reading Rose’s words and many of the comments here, I feel concern and sadness for both Rob and Kristen. I’m a fairly private individual myself (with this foray into internet commenting being a complete anomaly for me) so I know that I wouldn’t have dealt with the public scrutiny half as well as they have. I truly feel for them and like Rose, feel the need to reevaluate my place and role in this fandom. I’m glad Rob has such wonderful parents and friends around him to give him well grounded support and normalcy. Above all, I am grateful for the friend/partner/soul mate he has found in Kristen. I shouldn’t ascribe feelings to two people I’ve never met, but it really does seems that they sustain and nurture each other. I hope there is great comfort in that.

I am a fan of both of them (and hopefully not a “fanatic” as someone pointed out above) but a part of me still struggles with this, thinking that perhaps this is wrong. Am I supporter or voyeur? This is something I still need to reconcile for myself. That said, there is something undeniably special about Robert and Kristen that has touched me - whether it is their “normalcy”; their ethics in how they approach their work and their friendships; their seeming devotion to each other (I mean who can’t help but smile when they are smiling at each other) – something that makes normal people who have never met them want to root for, and protect them. They can be proud of the way they conduct themselves and lead their lives when surrounded by such insanity.

My thanks to Rose, and my fellow Roselanders, for such thoughtful comments on the blog today. I hope everyone has a peaceful evening.

angelica1 said...

Hi Melinda - I'm suffering a bit this week,It's worse when I'm deskbound oddly enough. I'm going to need surgery.We're just trying to figure out a time when my calendar is reasonably clear and one of the family can be around to help me,since my other half travels so much!

30 - Homemade piza is delicious :)

rolange said...

I really liked the article, even though he sounds tired and raw and vulnerable.......it shows the funny, kind and sweet Rob that is so intriguing to so many of us. How he and Kristen deal with what they do yet remain so grounded is amazing.

I just copied what Kay said because she said everything I wanted to and that I'm too tired to say. I'm looking forward to reading the entire interview in print (yes, I still read print) and drooling over the pictures (don't judge me).

Hang in there Rose!!

Hope said...

Freddie...**Swish, Swish**...Can you guess where I am?? LOL

I love what you wrote because your thoughts align with mine. I came to this blog not in search of Robert but in search of Rob and Kristen...their love story. It is refreshing in the sea of Hollywood crap.

Angelica...sorry you are not feeling well today...hopefully you can make time for your surgery soon.

30...we make homemade pizzas a lot...sundried tomatoes, mushrooms, meats..yummy I am getting hungry.

Melinda said...

Angelica-

Sorry to hear you are having a bad week. I hope things get easier for you allowing the time for you to get what you need done to feel better.

Hugs to you.

30 said...

Hi Angelica! I hope you are OK. I feel kind of bad I haven't asked. I have only skimmed the comments, but from what I read you are not feeling too well as of late. Feel better my friend. xo

Freddie, I love your words today and I agree with you on the "evaluating are part" It makes me sad too. I also feel protective of Rob and Kris I think we all do.Even though we have all never met them, watching them grow and pretty much watching Kristen grow up the past 2-3 years in front of us make me feel for them in every way.

angelica1 said...

30 Don't feel bad! I sometimes miss when people aren't well too. I always appreciate everyone's concern though : )

katy said...

Hi, Rose!! Awesome post

Rob looks so gorgeous in those VF pics, I particularly love the one with Rob at the piano.
Loved the interview, I found it very honest and genuine, though it made me sad too. I just felt some sadness and vulnerability in his words, regarding the 'Twilight hysteria'. However, Rob was the sweet, honest, good soul person that he always is.

Despite of all the craziness surronding Rob and Kristen, I think they handle all of it very well, even if it's hard at times...They are both very special and wise young people and I wish them the very best of everything.


Hi, everyone!! Hope you are all having a great day.

Hugs to all, take care and be happy.

Annie said...

Angelica: I'm sorry to hear that you're not well this week with your back.
I sincerely hope that the surgery helps.

Freddie said...

Oh Hope - you made me smile. I'm so happy you're enjoying some down time. I hope the weather is good for you and if it isn't, that you enjoy some apres ski. Have a wonderful time.

30 - thanks so much for the feedback. You were right on the mark with your comments this morning.

Angelica - I hope you feel better soon. Take it easy and let the hubbie do any heavy lifting.

Hi Annie, Melinda, Kenzz, Katy, Birdie and all the other Roselanders.

Have a good night all.

angelica1 said...

Thanks Freddie and Annie :)

Super RN Gas Passer said...

ROSE..I cant beleive it..you got so caught up in Rob today that you did not put in a pic of Tom! heh...

I dont blame you..a n d ..lucky lady that got that nice (HUG)!!!!

Yeah, sounds like Twitter has the goods on you and Tom, Rose. heh..they have as much validity as the Sun ...HEADLINE ...90 year old delivers alien baby from Mars!! yeah, right!

On a more serious note, I, too, feel bad if our collective obsession for Rob has hurt him in any way..I love him so... for the reasons that were all so perfectly stated by fellow bloggers today. All things must pass... and I hope 10 years from now, he will look back on all of this and remember the Good and not so much the bad..

And yes, I love Rob with a piano!!!

Mafalda said...

You contribute to the craziness, even if it is ward for you to admit it.

Kenzz said...

angelica: I'm sending happy healing thoughts your way...I'm sure the surgery will lead to a reduction of your pain..

Freddie: your comments completely stated how I feel..thanks for your eloquence!

30: agreed with your comments from this AM...also, love homemade pizza here, we've made it with a brown rice crust that we do on the grill (I'm all about "the healthy", much to my kids chagrin!)

BTW, going out on a limb here to say I'm not 100% sold yet on that VF cover...perhaps it needs to grow on me! Obviously Rob can't take a bad picture (& I love the pic with the piano fingers!), but I guess I just expected something with more WOW from Annie L. However, the gator looks pleased as punch!

Hi to Hope, Annie, Katy, Melinda, and a bunch of great souls whom I've missed!

Kenzz said...

Hi Super! I missed your comment because I take so long to type my thoughts!

I forgot about Smitty's rendering of Twitter feeds about Rose! We must, as loyal Roselanders, help Rose come up with names for her upcoming delivery of triplets. Come on, all you creative gals...let's shout out a few suggestions for Queen Rose.

Oh, Rose, with triplets coming I don't believe your husband will have a problem with you bringing Tom into your relationship...you're going to need all the help you can get with those numerous hungry mouths! :)

Brenda said...

Geez, I don't go online for a couple of days and all hell breaks loose. I had no idea you were expecting triplets, Rose. Uh...congrats? ;-)

I'm feeling very sad for Rob and Kristen. I hope months and years from now he doesn't remember this as a bad time in his life. But he does sound fed up. I'm glad they have each other and their friends and family. I'm sure people will be foaming now that he is ungrateful. I think he's just exhausted and probably never wants to hear the word "twilight" ever again.

Hi, everybody. Agree totally with you, Freddie.

30 said...

Hi Kenzz! That pizza sounds different and something I would love too try one day. I would love the recipe if you ever have time to post. :)

Ya the VF pics, not feeling them. And unfortunately Robs Charlie Sheen comment couldn't have come at a worst time then today. CS is off his rocker, an abuser/druggie. It's sad watching his public meltdown.I just saw on Nancy Grace ( a child advocate show) that CS x wife is going too court to keep the kids away from him. He is just a manic mess. And of course Robs mention of him is being ripped and changed by people just too hate on him.

lady quinzy said...

somehow everything you wrote are all true. so sad that the very person who gives us happiness can't even have just a little for himself.

Super RN Gas Passer said...

KENZZ, How was your weekend trip? Good to see you tonight.

I agree about Charlie Sheen, he is spiraling out of control..ALWAYS soooo very sad to see...and the thing about it is, the drugs(and yes, alchohol IS A DRUG) when abused ...really alters how one "thinks"...they are NOT themselves, and they dont realize it, so they say and do things they never would otherwise...My heart goes out to his family and children.

Super RN Gas Passer said...

NAMES FOR THE "TRIPLETS" well, lets see....we HAVE to include R&K in the names... Gender male/female...ROB/ROBIN...KRIS/KRISSY..THOMAS/THOMASENA..heh

Super RN Gas Passer said...

THOMAS/THOMASENA..dont know why it didnt come through

word verif dinglani

Kenzz said...

30: it'll take me a few days to track that recipe down...it realy tastes like a regular crust, and not rice!

Super: The ski trip was fun..my son does the adaptive skiing, and had a blast! I, as usual, hung out in the lodge with my trusty Kindle, and relaxed during a rare no kids, no hubby, no responsibilities day (well, 3 hours!)

How's your work & family?

Super RN Gas Passer said...

KENZZ...Everybody is good..Hubby out of town..just got off Skype with him, son home from school, daughter and I went to Thai tonight..so Ive had my California rolls..Im goood...no hot Saki tonight though since Im On Call for the hospital this evening....BooHoo

word verif dopholep (I think Im being insulted here!) lol

Freddie said...

Hi Kenzz – how is the President (or Vice President – I can’t remember which one you are) of the Northeast chapter of Roseland? Thanks for the feedback but I thought you expressed things beautifully yourself. Yes, we should name the triplets. I’ve been sitting here trying to come up with something good with no success….I’m so not witty! Glad you had a nice break.

30 – I agree. The cover isn’t one of my favourites, but I do really like the piano picture.

Hey Super – how are you? It sounds like you’ve been very busy and needing to catch up on sleep. Hope all is well.

Hi Brenda – how’s it going up in Ottawa?

CONGRATS to Rose and Tom on their TRIPLE BLESSING!!!

I read it on the internet so I KNOW it must be true! ;)

Mr. Rose is one understanding dude!

Super RN Gas Passer said...

FREDDIE..doing good...nice to see you this evening..Did you have a good and productive day???

30.. and BRENDA...I meant to say hello..If you guys are still around..

Kenzz said...

Freddie: I'm sooo not witty, either, but I was thinking names similar to the 7 dwarfs (since I'm still holding out hope for Kris in Snow White!)... how about Sparkly, Chilly, and Bloodie?

Super: I have a Skype account, but I never use it because I always want to go touch up my make-up before I get in front of the computer's webcam!!

Freddie said...

Hi Super, I'm pretty good thanks, and I actually did have a pretty productive work day, but I'm glad for the chance to pop in here tonight. I missed chatting with everyone last week. It sounds like you've had a good evening so far.

How is the house hunting going? (I hope I have that right...)

Hi dottie.

dottie said...

Hi Freddie :)

Super RN Gas Passer said...

KENZZ...I KNOW..lol....must be nice to be a guy..I let my husband see me..I told him tonight he has seen me better but he has also seen me MUCH worse...If you ever want to Skype, let me know..at least it gives you the option of allowing the video to run ..or NOT...heh

Freddie said...

Kenzz - I love the names. It sounds like the cold weather inspired you with the name "chilly". Did you guys get hit with more bad weather?

Super RN Gas Passer said...

FREDDIE..the housing market is still NADA...If we ever get an offer on this house, hopefully before I die...Im starting to wonder...THEN we will look for a house or possibly build again..

Good Night Guys..going to lurker status....over and out!

Freddie said...

Good night Super. Have a good one.

Kenzz said...

Super: keep the faith on the sale of the house...they say the market is FINALLY picking up! Goodnite :)

Freddie: see, this is why I don't try to be wittty..just ain't happenin'! My references were towards Edward's physical characteristics in Twilight, in deference to Rose's "intoxication"! hahaha

Brenda said...

Hi Freddie, Super, and everyone else! It's a beautiful day here in Ottawa. We have less snow than Vancouver.

Freddie said...

Kenzz, I like the names. They work perfectly and I think Rose (and Tom) would like the tribute to Edward. LOL. I had been thinking of Edward, Tyler and Jacob (Jankowski not Black). So we were thinking along similar lines.

Brenda - yes, it is weird that the east has less snow than the west at the moment. Works for me, though.

Kenzz said...

Hi Brenda!

Ladies, got to run...hubby about to walk in the door after a 12+ hr day, and I'm putting on the finishing touches to my famous (well, in my mind, at least!!) Fruited Lamb Stew, in honor of the first day of March (and hopefully the end of this wretched winter!)

((Hugs)) to you all...especially to Gruff, Smitty, and Syd... take care of each other, as friends do so well.

I have just finished reading the full article and like many have mixed emotions. The strongest I feel is sadness. That it is unfortunate at how crazy it has become. Everybody no matter how famous or how much they are being paid(the industry has set the bar on how much money these actors make) deserves privacy to some extent. I do feel that they should give autographs chat with their fans etc. That being said there is also a time and place for that. The Paps and obsessive fans are out of control and it scares me a bit to think that it won't change until they unfortunately cause accidents or hurt them this goes for all actors. Its kinda like some intersections around me needed to have a certain amount of accidents before they made it a 4 way stop or put in a traffic light. I dunno I hope you understand what I am trying to explain. I really felt sad when he was talking about Kristen. I am actually shocked that he said as much as he did. I still think that they are together but after reading part of me wonders maybe they are not as together as we think at least anymore. Do they look at each other like soul mates? Yes more times then we can probably count. And especially when they think no way is looking. We all know what we see is the real deal between them but do they see it like we do? I dunno sometimes outsiders see things differently. I just feel like when he was answering it came across funny. They can love each other so much but maybe it is just not going to be enough because they can't be like a normal couple I am still pulling for them!

On a side not it seems that out of Rob/Kris/Taylor that Taylor is the best Ninja of all You never see him at all.

Barbara Fenwick said...

Rose, I too feel sad for Rob and Kris, and the way they have to hide and sneak around while they are just trying to live their lives. I can't believe the things people do...it just seems crazy.I hope after all the Twilight craziness is over, their lives will return to normal

Freddie said...

Night Kenzz. Have a good rest of the evening. Nice talking with you again.

Barbara Fenwick said...

Sorry, I forgot to add something. Rose you absolutely do NOT add to the problem, you are one of the few voices of reason. You only state your opinion, and all of us depend on you.

cutiestar said...

Great post Rose and Standing Ovation for Mr. Robert Pattinson for his best interview to date. He was honest, raw, and to the point about many subjects, especially the overzealous and insatiable Twilight Fandom that has intrusively and in some cases illegally invaded his personal life as well as his friends and family. And, if anyone took offense to his comments than they are probably the people he was commenting about that does not know how to respect boundaries and disassociate a character on screen from a real person. Rob just wants to be Rob and not all the labels that are put on him. I can only imagine the hell of living in a fishbowl with 24/7 security, not being able to go to the grocery store, step outside on your balcony, go out on a normal date with your girl to the movies or dinner, pick your nose or a wedgie without 1,000,000 tweets and pics flying across the world about it and being dissected most likely incorrectly. I hope that he does what makes him happy in life (personally and professionally) and knows that this craziness will settle down in a few years and just hang in there.

olivia said...

Thank you Rose for always writing sane, honest, and supportive words about Rob and Kristen.

May they enjoy privacy, respect, peace and calm during their private times. Thank goodness they have loving family, friends, and trusted associates around them. This craziness shall pass. May they stay strong, sane, centered and focused and also continue to find renewal and sanctuary in each other in the meanwhile.

Hugs for you Rose, Smitty, Gruff, Syd, and of course, for all the lovely, caring Roselanders.

DreamerKind said...

@cutiestar
I'm with you, completely!

*****************************************

Hang in there, all of us, meaning this life is damn hard, did you think otherwise?

Twilight will pass into the nostalgic place it belongs, and we, we will go on. Love will find a way, says the old hippie/soul that I am.

Now, today I lost a dear friend. He was 72 and suffered great physical pain, and he was a joy and difficult, who wouldn't be and who isn't.

Live and love, that's it. Lucky to have it, and still there is no guarantee.

I support you all, and respect your life. Rose, Rob, Kristen, Tom, Smitty, Gruff, Syd, you, me and everyone beloved one of us!

(I'm drunk and getting drunker, so forgive and forget, will ya please?)

DK/Dreamer/Dee

Oh, and Darling Smitty, I am so glad that Twitter has determined that sweetest Tom is moving to Chicago or even Iowa, for I will be there for him, and whoever needs me, bet my usual hundo on that! ((Smooches))

May not post any songs tonight, unless I can and will celebrate the life we fucking HAVE.

Rhonda said...

Rose,

Thoughtful post today. I think you're the very best kind of fan. I'm pretty sure Rob and Kristen would think so too ;)

Congrats on the triplets! LOL!

Freddie- Your comment was beautifully stated. I feel the same.

Hi Everyone! I hope you had a great day :)

*I*Believe* said...

Hi Everyone~

I wish Rob and Kristen peace and happiness. Like Freddie said, I am glad they have each other for love and support during these crazy times.

Annie said...

I think Rob's answers regarding his relationship with Kristen Stewart is a typical answer for both him and her......They never confirm nor deny. They deflect masterfully.

DK; My condolences on the passing of your friend.
I hope you find solace in your memoories of him.

Annie said...

Sorry, spelling error............Memories.

olivia said...

DK,
I am so very sorry about the passing of your friend. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
Hug

Rhonda said...

DK- I'm so sorry about the loss of your friend ((Hugs))

DreamerKind said...

Here I go, celebrating, despite the facts, odds, and appearances!

Look Through Any Window

The Hollies:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xfIgPUYStMk

Look through any window, yeah
What do you see?
Smiling faces all around
Rushing through the busy town

Where do they go?
Moving on their way
Walking down the highways and the byways

Where do they go?
Moving on their way
Are people with their shy ways and their sly ways

You can see the little children all around
You can see the little ladies in their gowns

When you look through any window, yeah
Any time of day
See the drivers on the roads
Button down their heavy loads

Where do they go?
Moving on their way
A-driving down the highways and the byways

Where do they go?
Moving on their way
Are drivers with their shy ways and their sly ways

You can see the little children all around
You can see the little ladies in their gowns

When you look through any window, yeah
What do you see?
Smiling faces all around
Rushing through the busy town

Moving on their way...
Ooh...moving on their way...
Where do they go...?
Moving on their way...ooh...

Thank you/4OldiesButGoodies

DreamerKind said...

You are darlings, all, and I thank you...

Freddie said...

DK - I'm so sorry for the loss of your friend. It is never easy when it happens. Like Annie said, take solace in the good memories.

Hi IB and Rhonda - how's it going? I missed talking with everyone.

*I*Believe* said...

DK~For your loss, I am sorry.

*I*Believe* said...

Hey there Freddie!

Busy here, second day back after vacay....hope all is well in your world~

Annie said...

Hi everyone!.....How are all of you?

@IB: Have you reached your goal yet? I'm still cheering for you!

Rhonda said...

Hi Freddie, IB and Annie :)

olivia said...

DK,

Remember to "weep not for the memories".
A song for you and your friend.

Night y'all

Freddie said...

IB - yes, things are good, thanks. So is vacation only a distant memory, now that you are back at work? It sounds like you had a busy week, but I hope it was enjoyable, in any case.

Freddie said...

Hey Rhonda - how are things? I think I owe you an e-mail.

Rhonda said...

Freddie- How was the business trip?

IB- I forgot..I guess you're back to school now?

Rhonda said...

Freddie- I'm good, busy, but good :)

*I*Believe* said...

Hey Annie~Almost lost another 5.

Yup, back at school this week:)

Rhonda said...

IB- Good job!!

*I*Believe* said...

Hello Rhonda!

Annie~How is the City?

Rhonda said...

IB- your snow pic is pretty :)

Freddie said...

Rhonda - the trip was good for the most part. We had a day and a half of business sessions along with an "awards" dinner for the sales team. The dinner was actually quite fun and they had a "People's Choice Awards" part, where we voted on winners for categories like "Most embarrasing Sales story" or "support person who saved a sales person's ass".

I also got to see my folks so that was great as well. But I'm home now and back to the grind stone.

It sounds like you have been working hard.

Annie said...

@IB: Yeah! :)

The city today was sunny but windy and chilly and I'm nursing a cold!

Freddie said...

IB - congrats on the 5 pounds. That's great.

Annie - how's it going? Is the weather improving in New York?

Kay said...

So sorry for your loss, DK

Rhonda said...

Freddie- I'm glad all went well and you were able to spend some time with your family :)

Rhonda said...

Annie- I'm sorry you're sick :(

Rhonda said...

I wish I could stay and chat but work will be early tomorrow..

Goodnight ladies :)

*I*Believe* said...

Rhonda~Thanks...I wanted to let you all see what it looks like in the Great White North

Freddie~I have a grind stone too!

Annie~Your weather sounds like our...bright, sunny but windy and freezing

*I*Believe* said...

Good night Rhonda!

Annie~Hope you feel better too!

Freddie said...

Good night Rhonda - have a good one and good day at work tomorrow.

I'm going to have to call it a night as well. Have a good night ladies.

*I*Believe* said...

Nite Freddie~Glad you got to see your parents!

Annie said...

It's just the sniffles but I'm totally blaming this yo-yo weather.
Warm, cold, freezing, wet, snow, sun and then repeat the pattern! :)

Annie said...

Goodnight Freddie and Rhonda.

IB: Are you out too?

*I*Believe* said...

Guess it's time to turn over Roseland to the night crew! Be well everyone!

*I*Believe* said...

Yes, Annie...I have to hit the hay...take care of those sniffles!

Annie said...

IB: Thanks! Goodnight. :)

nycalways82 said...

Great post! The VF pics are lovely with a great interview that is honest, raw and insightful. The obsessed be they admirers or haters need to learn some boundaries and back off him. Rob has been weathering it well but enough is enough. Here's hoping he and Kris can get some downtime together and just relax away from the spotlight.

DreamerKind said...

@Olivia
Ah, such a song, for us all. I weep not for memories, I weep for what I know loved ones suffer. Memories are selective and grand, as it should be. Grand living, as it can be.

*IB*

The Night Crew is present but more will be here, soon, thanks.

Love, Folks, Nothing More

I Have A Love & One Hand One Heart

Barbra Streisand/Johnny Mathis:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xUy0MLhp364&feature=related

[Johnny Mathis:]
I have a love and it's all that I have
Right or wrong, what else can I do?

[Barbra:]
I love him; I'm his,
And ev'rything he is
I am too...

[Johnny Mathis:]
I am too...

[Barbra:]
I have a love and it's all that I need.
Right or wrong, and he needs me too.

[Johnny Mathis:]
I love her, we're one,

[Barbra:]
I love him,

[Johnny Mathis:]
There's nothing to be done.

[Barbra:]
Nothing to be done.

[Johnny Mathis:]
Not a thing I can do,

[Barbra:]
But hold him,

[Johnny Mathis:]
But hold her,
Hold her forever,

[Both:]
Be with her now--

[Johnny Mathis:]
Tomorrow
And all of my life...

[Barbra:]
I have a love and it's all that I need...

Make of our hands one hand,
Make of our hearts one heart,
Make of our vows one last vow,
Only death will part...
Us now.

[Johnny Mathis:]
Make of our lives one life,

[Both:]
Day after day one life.
Now it begins, now we start
One hand, one heart;
Even death won't part...

[Barbra:]
Us now...

[Johnny Mathis:]
Make of our lives one life,

[Both:]
Day after day one life.

[Johnny Mathis:]
Now it begins,

[Barbra:]
Now it begins,

[Johnny Mathis:]
Now we start

[Barbra:]
Now we start

[Johnny Mathis:]
One hand,

[Barbra:]
One hand,

[Johnny Mathis:]
One heart;

[Barbra:]
One heart;

[Both:]
Even death won't part us now.

When love comes so strong,
There is no right or wrong,
Your love is,
Your love is,
Your love is,
Your life!

Thank you/albertdiner

Rose, the Vanity Fair pictures are so beautiful. I can't wait to buy my copy. I hope R/K both get some vacation time soon. DK, I'm so sorry for your loss.

wig4usc said...

I don't think you or the blog add to the crazy, its the main reason I'm here. I don't want to be a crazy screaming fan, I like being a grown up who can simply enjoy and talk to others who feel the same. Thanks for that, and thanks for sharing the cover. I need to get me one of those VF's!

Birdie said...

DK, are you out in there in cyberspace somewhere? I was so sorry to read about the loss of your friend. I'll check back to see if you check in. Thinking of you!

Wildhart007 said...

Morning Roseland!

DK I am so sorry for the loss of your friend. Celebrate your friend's life! Your memories will keep him close forever.

In a meeting trying to act like I'm paying attention.

Linda

dottie said...

Just peeking in.

DK I'm sorry about the loss of your friend. I'll be thinking of you.

sillylamb said...

I've been reading your posts for several months and have enjoyed them. But today's I so totally agree with that I had to put my two cents in. I worry that the 'fandom' could do to him what it did to Elvis, and in those days there was even less access.

I wish he and Kristin would take a year or two off and just enjoy their lives and each other while it's still possible.
They looked so playful, and having a ball on the shoot you use for a banner, they need to get back to that before it all sours.
I know you can't go back but Lord, don't loose the future because of a 'horde of idiots' that were never raised to show respect for anything or anyone.

Annie said...

I think they are many interviewers who want to be the first to get the "big get" from either Rob or Kristen.

The intereviewers all go the same route......Some examples:

How would you compare your relationship to that of Bella and Edwards?

Is your relationship as intense as Bella and Edward's? and on and on.

These interviewers always try and compare Rob and Kristen to their Twilight characters. The question I ask is why?

That questioning has not changed and neither has Rob and Kristen's response to it!
Asking questions like that will get you the same answers as always because Rob and Kristen are NOT, I repeat NOT Bella and Edward.

Interviewers should move on from the lame ass questions!

My favourite interviewer is MTV's Josh Horowitz. Now that's an interviewer who doesn't bore me half to death.

Wopuld any of us really want a relationship like Bella and Edward's as written by Stephanie Meyer.......Edward is sweet in parts and so is Bella but much of books leave you with a feeling as if that were real life many of us would be telling Edward to chill and for Bella to grow a backbone (Bella does and Edward finally chills)

Annie said...

Ouch! Spelling errors........Reminder, do not comment without my glasses on! Sorry.

cj said...

Hi Rose!
This is my first time commenting on any site. I just wanted to express my appreciation for all that you do. I am a fan of Rob and Kris, think they are wonderful, down-to-earth people with so much talent! They are so not your typical Hollywood types, if they were I would not be a fan! Sometimes it gets depressing to read what other people say about them, dissecting every little move they make! I come to your site for some sanity and reminders of what I know in my heart! That they are together and happy and so absolutely in love!!! You only have to see their faces around each other to know the truth of it. We don't need any confirmation or affirmation by them, and, frankly, they don't owe us anything! I sincerely hope the craziness goes away after BD, and the unstable fans find some other obsession. While I am a huge fan, I would not even approach Rob if I saw him in a restaurant or some other situation. Everyone deserves a private life, even celebrities. I hope he and Kris are able to hang onto what they have and ride out this craziness! Thanks again, Rose!!!

cj said...

Rose,
This is my first time posting on any site. I just wanted to say how very much I love the support you give to Rob and Kris! It means alot to us, their true fans! I have so much more to say, but not the time at the moment. Keep up the good work, Rose!
