If You Seek Amy

This is the 3rd post I have written.
I keep saying too much...
and then clicking 'new post'.

I feel like I need to address what happened yesterday
But I don't really feel the need to dwell on it.

The only reason I do want to touch on some of what
was said is because I'm rather sick and tired
of people telling me what I meant
telling me what I'm thinking
telling me how I feel.

It's bullshit.

This whole drama included me just because
someone ASSUMED that I was involved with BWAN.
She didn't ask me.
She had no proof.
She just ASSUMED it had to be me
Because... well...
So then she proceeded to @RoseSee every other word
and drag me thru her bullshit drama
That I had nothing to do with.
Strangely enough...
There are a lot more vocal people in this fandom than me...
Who can be very loud at times.
I write this blog... and tweet.
That's it.
And although I used to blog every day like it 
was my religion...
You may have noticed that I don't quite have the time
to even do that anymore.

So yeah.
I was accused of being behind BWAN...
And I will be perfectly honest that I was rather flattered.
I think they have written some intelligent
witty.. sarcastic
and flat out funny as hell posts.
I don't have a problem with BWAN.
But if you think about it...
Do I really need ANOTHER blog to say basically the same thing
that I already talk about in this one?
And while I appreciate BWAN's reasoning about having
to keep their identity secret
(it's hard to be a mole if people know who you are)
I stand behind every word I write
and feel no need to apologize for any of it.

Needless to say... the girl who started all this DID apologize to me
for her assumption...
And for what its worth...
she did seem genuinely sorry.
I have no ill will towards her.
She is entitled to her opinion of me and my blog.
It just didn't have to be like this...
But that leads me back to people being 'upset' about 
what I post.
Apparently because I call out the haters on their bullshit...
I make it worse.
Worse for who?

 I'm not a hater.
Show me where I have EVER said I have hated anyone.
No. I don't even hate the haters.
I have NEVER made my blog posts personal.
I don't call people out by name
I don't bring up their families... or their jobs.
I haven't made fun of anyone's appearance
or age... or relationship status.
And believe me... they have done it to me
on more than one occasion.
I don't chase them down on other blogs/forums...
or attack them on their twitter accounts
trying to get them to agree to my point of view.
If someone is reading my words...
they seek me out.
Not the other way around.

I just point my finger in the general direction...
but not at anyone specifically.
Because believe it or not...
I don't think ALL Nonst*ns are foaming hyenas.
I actually like a few.
At one point not too long ago
one of the mods over there 
shared some DMs with me...
and guess what?
I liked her.
She wasn't all that different from me.
She had kids...
and she was somewhat perplexed by
the extreme factions of this fandom.
Just like me.
We just disagreed on Rob and Kristen being together.
And I was perfectly OK with that.
I think she was too.
No... we don't talk anymore...
(Not sure what happened there.. but it was on her end)
But it just goes to show...
I'm not some Nonnie Hunter out to hunt them to extinction.
I can live and let live...

I just don't like the 
vicious, vile, venomous vitriol
(say that 5 times fast)
that is directed at Kristen

Should I ignore it?
Will that make it go away?
Will it get better if we pretend it doesn't exist?
Does my talking about it make it worse?
Can it get much worse?
Do I think Kristen needs defending?
Well... apparently I do.
Because I just don't get it.

Everyone is entitled to their opinion.
And that's all fine and good 
We all have one.
Go forth and frolic with your opinion!

But the hatred towards Kristen isn't an opinion.

What does she do that deserves such bitter anger?
She doesn't smile enough?
She doesn't dress the right way?
She wears a gold ring on her finger?
She drives a Mini Cooper that needs washing?
She flips off the paps?
She takes off her heels and puts on her keds?
You don't like her acting?
She's awkward in public?

Do any of these things deserve hatred?

Or is it because she spends a lot of time
with one of the most desirable...
Men on this planet?
A man who chooses to spend his free time...
Again and again...
With her.
And pretty much ONLY her.
That could be why.

Because you take Robert Pattinson out of the Kristen equation...
And they wouldn't even barely notice her.
And they most definitely wouldn't have forums/blogs
dedicated to criticizing her for being human.
For existing.
Because that is what Kristen Stewart does
to incite such hatred...

And finally...
(yeah... I know... Shut up)

I've gotten people who have told me that I talk about
the negative side of things too much...
Maybe they are right.
Maybe I do.
Maybe I should just focus on the good things about
Rob and Kristen.
There are a lot of good things after all.
They love each other.
They seem to love to be together as much as they can.
They certainly don't give a rat's ass about
all this petty drama about 
As long as they are both safe...
And Happy...
Whats else really matters?

And last but not least...
I was told that I talk about Rob and Kristen personal life..
Do you read my blog?
I speculate where they are on any given day...
I talk about how I think they are completely together
and how gloriously happy Robert always looks
whenever Kristen is near by...
I often find myself getting dizzy over pictures
of Robert walking
To and Fro
This way and That away
Here and There
and Everywhere...
I do write about that a lot...
But do I get personal?
Do I talk about their sex lives?
Do I fantasize about Rob?
Well... other than him walking to a pub
to hang out and have a couple of beers with me...
Do I beg for some sort of a sex tape?
Do I devour pictures of Robert's crotch
and speculate on size and girth?
I don't get involved in the intimate
personal details of their lives.
I just like seeing them together.
And happy.

Anything else?

Oh yeah.
Rob apparently left Toronto on Friday...
And look... a picture!
And lo and behold...
A vintage clothes shop in Sherman Oaks
Tweeted about having Rob and Kristen
shopping in their store for a while.
I guess...
As Always.

Hey... Ninnies might be irrelevant
but its always fun to push a button or two.

And yes.
Green Sheep.

This post is brought to you by Amy and Francis.

Love me hate me,
but can't you see what I see?
All of the boys and all of the girls 
are begging to if you seek Amy

Bye for now

P.S. I have NEVER claimed to have 'inside' sources.
I just give my opinion.

And really?
Lighten the fuck up
It's not that serious.


Groovie said...

Nice late night surprise post!
Tell it like it is!
You always do, and that's why I love reading your blog. That and all the wonderful people here!

Great post, great pix, thank u!

Hope Rob & Kristen are enjoying themselves, I'm sure Kristen especially is busy busy busy <-(said like the evil magician in Frosty lol!)

Few days until Comic-con, should be fun! Hope it doesn't get too loud & crazy! That would drive be nuts lol!

Hello to everyone! Hope u are all doing well and having a nice night!
2nd week back from vacation & work mode is officially back on, not very fun lol
Good news is I made it into the final 5 for the promotion I interviewed for at work! I have my final interview this week, so fingers crossed all goes well & I get the job!

dottie said...

I'm so glad I took a peek at twitter and saw that you posted.

Rose, It's completely selfish of me but I hope you keep blogging for a long long time. This place and your words have come to mean so much to us. There's never a hint of hate in Roseland, except for the occasional unwelcome visitor. Anyone who thinks you encourage hate hasn't been paying attention.

I love that you defend Kristen. She is not in a position to defend herself and probably wouldnt anyway, but she does deserve defending & YOU do it so well.

Thanks Rose!

dottie said...

My fingers are crossed for you to get that promotion, Groovie. Good luck!

Groovie said...

Ditto to dottie's post, very well said!
And thanks for the well wishes my friend! :)

Kay said...

Thanks for the late night post, Rose. There are so many things that go on in this wacky fandom that I'll never understand...why do people actually think it's okay to behave the way they do? Thank you for continuing to defend Kristen and fight against the hate out there, even though you have to put up with so much bullshit to do it.

Hi Dottie, Groovie and the rest of Roseland...good night and have a happy Tuesday everyone! :)

Hope said...

I appreciate every word you have written here tonight. You handled yourself and the deceitful drama perfectly as always.

I also love that you passionately defend and honor Kristen. It is the right thing to do. In fact, some of my favorite posts of yours have been the ones dedicated to Kristen.

Kristen has done NOTHING to deserve the sickening lies and hate directed at her.
Bottom line...JEALOUSY.

Thank you for continuing to shine a spotlight on this madness with your truth and Rose-isms.

Hey...Isn't it time to twirl again and get out those damn decoder rings?!

Now...if I can get these silly girls in bed....endless summer sleepovers are killing me. LOL

felicity said...

rose, i am sorry that you've got all this crap. who doesn't know your blog should not write to you about stuff they don't know anything about.

comic con is just a few days away and we all can't wait to see them together...again.

maybe they can sit side by side this year! i hope so! after all, this time it's about BD and in BD the main characters are Edward and Bella....Jacob is really just a side note!!

hugs Rose and please don't let some stupid people get to you!! you are soo much better than they are!!

Super RN Gas Passer said...

ROSE...You are a "defender" and because of your love and admiration for the Happy Couple, you are going to call the Bashers of R and K or just Kristen on their behavior. I find it absolutley fascinating that they get so worked up when you call a spade a spade but I find that in general most people can dish it out...but they can't take it! Oh well, too bad...

kstewrocks said...

I haven't typed on your blog in ages. So hi to all again, if it's the same people still.

I follow your blog posts though, and follow you twitter. I still love what you write. Sometimes it's not neccessary to read everyday, but other days it is.

kstewrocks said...

I saw this girl's blog. And no way does it compare to yours.

Yours is much nicer. Your opinions I respect, hers I don't. I just don't see how an R/K fan can condemn another R/K for defending either of the two against the haters.

You're like the anti-bullying campaign organised to defend Kristen, and you defend Rob when you need to as well. But yeah you're exactly that. I don't see how defending a young 21 year old female that just wants to live her life, against the haters is wrong compared to defending the haters by saying "it's their opinion."

As I said to this girl, an opinion is something you share every once in a while, not everyday! Hating is wrong. But yet she still justifies it, saying it's their opinion. I can have an opinion about her, and if that involves hate apparently I should be ashamed because I don't know her. That should apply to nonstens then surely, but she doesn't see it that way.

So of course your blog is much nicer than hers and always will be. Oh and Rose, you for sure have the defense on your side. :)

kstewrocks said...

Yeah you're right, you don't need another blog. This is a lovely blog already, and so many people already come here. You've got your listeners, the loveliest listeners.

You don't need to find another avenue to speak through.

Yes, you don't name the haters. Not exactly. You do copy and paste emails, but that's another fun part of your blog. And if they're embarrassed then they shouldn't harass your inbox with such emails. You were appalled by those petitions to kill nonstens or something like that, right?

I'm yet to see one nice nonsten. Okay to tell you the truth, I spoke to one who we just obv diagreed with. And she pointed me in the direction to only ONE respectful nonsten.

kstewrocks said...

If we left them alone to hate, everyday, a) we're not raising a need for concern in their mental health b) we're just letting them get away c) they'll be miserable too if they don't have the attention.

In connection to something I was creating the once, I found two quotes that I've just changed the word school to people/person to make it apply to this situation or to any situation.

"Bullying happens; good people are proactive in their approach and deal with incidents of bullying promptly, firmly and fairly. Bad people deny it, ignore it, justify it, rationalise it, handle it inappropriately, sweep it under the carpet, blame the victim of bullying, blame the parents of the victim of bullying, say they've "ticked all the boxes" and make lots of impressive noises but take no substantive action."

"Never ignore bullying; bullies use provocation to elicit a response from their target and if you ignore it the provocation will get worse. When people say "ignore it" they mean "don't engage and don't respond". When bullying starts, recognise it immediately, keep a log of events, do your research, and get your parents and (whoever else) involved. Be persistent. You have a right not to be bullied, harassed, assaulted or abused."

Kristen has a right not to be attacked.

EXACTLY! Plus these people do it everyday when they hate her. How is hating on someone everyday an opinion? If I was to ask any of your thoughts on soap operas on tv, would you tell me your answer everyday?

kstewrocks said...

Please don't ever change your blog. Don't you dare feel that defending Kristen is anything simiar to a bad move. Don't let people tell you that it's wrong. You're free to speak, you're free to defend.

It's better than sweeping what haters do/say under the carpet, like it's a good thing. It's bad what they do. They're attacking someone they don't know, everyday, and somedays in the most vile forms.

If people just let that happen, I wreckon they'd have more time on their hands to make things much worse. They'd feel their ideas of a next and new attack aren't being spied upon. People need to monitor their behaviour, because it's not normal.

One person said, who was defending you, on that other blog...that you'd both seen pictures of Kristen's name or something like that on a tombstone. I mean I guess after just reminding myself on the security that Rob and Kristen have; that they're protected, but if we can try to protect her a tinsy bit more and lessen the hate. Maybe we're making a difference.

But again, yesh I suppose this doesn't need to be done everyday. Just when it's neccessary.

A-M said...

Rose, kstewrock, 100% with u. People just don't get that Kristen, even if she often portrays(??) a girl with determination & sure of herself, I'm pretty sure she's the opposite. She's just a shy, timid little woman that's got a mind of her own! And yes, that makes her akward in public, but what the heck! And you know what? Rob saw it! Just look at the way he protects her! Love her, love her work, love Rob!
Keep it on Rose!
P.S. sorry about my "english!" I'm French speaking from Montreal!

RTP_KJS_Lover said...

I don't comment often, but I do read your blog every time you post.

I caught the tail end of the bullshit drama Boubie started on Sunday. I found her accusations quite pathetic and very hypocritical. I couldn't believe she dragged you and Delaney into her own personal hell. I do think it's quite humorous that for all her big talk, she backed down fairly quickly and apologized. Clearly we all have opinions and can post or blog about them, but when one goes about it with no proof, trying to make a point, and then fails miserably at it, I just gotta laugh. I am actually really embarrassed for her.

Anyway, I think you are one of the sanest bloggers in this fucked up fandom. I choose to read your blog, I always like what I read, I hope you continue on for as long as you would like to.

With or without their hate forum, the ninnies will continue on, it's nice to have you and BWAN and the Rob/Kristen blogs and the Kristen positive Rob blogs and the Rob positive Kristen blogs out there to champion our favorite couple. If you and other bloggers as well as readers of your blogs, want to "defend" Rob and Kris (not that they need it), we sure as hell can. Haters can suck it.

Was anyone surprised that Rob wrapped on a Thursday and flew out the next day to get back to L.A.? Didn't think so. He couldn't wait to get to Kris. LOVE IT!

Super excited for CC on Thursday.

Hope all have a lovely day, especially you, Rose.

sjjw said...

Good morning all! About to head out to a Dr. app't (just routine check up) but wanted to say


Please, keep doing what you do. I totally support, you and BWAN, in your efforts.

Off to fun times...not!


sjjw said...

Excuse the misplaced comma in that last post.

Annie said...

Good Morning Roseland!

I'm not familiar with BWAN and it looks as if I may have mistaken them for that other Because......I shouldn't have.

Rose continues to say it best, as she did a few blog posts back.....
Continue on Rose!

Have a great day everybody.

The heat is on here. A fourth straight day of tempersatures over 90 degrees!

PL said...

I woke up this morning and my first thought was are my clocks wrong because Rose never posts this early. I was even more surprised to see that she posted that late.

Rose is read by many because even if she speaks of the ninnies she doesn't single any one person out and try to ridicule them. Honestly, she doesn't have to because they make themselves objects of ridicule.

Rose, keep on doing what you do because if Rob or Kristen were ever to stumble across this blog I think they would appreciate what you write.

I can't say the same for the many other blog writers out there.

Good luck on the promotion.

*I*Believe* said...


I was so happy to see Rose's post!

I am a live and let live kind of person. You are welcome to do your thing as long as it doesn't hurt those I care about...BUT if you cross that line with me, don't expect me to sit around and watch you crap on those things and people that I hold dear. Rose is the same way....she says what she needs to when she needs to....again...her blog, her opinion...if you don't like it, don't read it.

I, too, am feed up with the people who target Kristen, a person the don't even know! My consolation is that SHE KNOWS WHO SHE IS and she navigates through the madness with strong character, a straight head and Robert by her side!

Rock on Roseland! Be well and COOL!

Birdie said...

Great post, Rose! It's unfortunate that you must repeat much of this time and again. Do they not read your disclaimer?
The only thing I have seen you make personal is your affection for Rob, Kristen and let's not forget Tom. There was a time that very few places were willing to talk about Rob and Kristen together and in a positive light. I believe that is why we all gravitated here. Why do we stay? Because it is a positive place and continues to respect Rob, Kristen and oh yes,Tom. The people who hate aren't just voicing opinions, they are on a mission, to discredit a young woman. You are so right, bottom line it is because she has a relationship with Rob. How incredibly weird is that? I also don't think you seek out those people. It is pretty apparent they come to you and we have all seen them visit here. Why wouldn't you speak up rather than passively sitting by? Not too many passive people in Roseland! Done with my morning rant. I so appreciate you, your creativity and ability to put up with bullshit!

IB, well said!

Good luck,Groovie!

Everyone surviving the heat?

*I*Believe* said...

Hi Bridie!

Groovie~Good Luck too!

sue said...

I don't know what the BWAN drama is about, I don't do twitter (don't have time for all the bs, lies and crap being told), I don't comment but read your blog every day and I love it. You say it as you see it and I like that. Everybody is entitled to their opinion if you can found it with arguments. But there are too many people in this world who hate without reason, mindless people jumping on the bandwagon. They read something on internet, so it must be true. My son told me there are groups who just write comments on blogs or sites for the fun of it, to see what reaction they get, it's a game to them. I find this very sick, internet is a very dangerous media. I don't know how bad the hate towards Kristen is but I find it very disturbing. It is so so sad that people hate her just because they are a couple, loving each other. I hope the 'good' fans outweigh the 'bad' ones.

Birdie said...

Morning IB!

Man,there certainly is a lot of heat out there! There is enough outside so maybe we should all cool it down. Haha! Rupert Murdoch is on the hot seat as we speak.
Well,I am going out to drip and pick raspberries.

Freddie said...

Hi Rose,

I think I said most of my thoughts on the last thread, but I will reiterate my thanks to you for all that you do. It is appreciated by many.

Hello to everyone is Roseland. I hope you have a wonderful day.

Hope said...

Good Morning!

Super...have fun at the beach. You were up early too considering you are on vacation. LOL

Groovie...Good Luck with the job interview. Fingers crossed!

SJ...I would spend my last dime on my dog. Hope everything works out for your baby.

Angelica...hope this alternative to surgery works and gives you relief!

Freddie...Hi! Sounds like you are getting the heat too.

Rhonda...I am excited that you are getting a well deserved vacation soon. Yay!

DK...are you up to your ears in boxes? Bless your heart.

Gruff...well, we are always so happy to see YOU!!

FIO...your video deserves an award if YouTube had such a thing.

Hey Rose, IB, Birdie, KStew, dottie, Felicity, Kay, Annie, PL, and everyone stopping by today. Stay cool!

Kelly said...

I totally support you and your opinions and speculations, etc. I read your blog whenever you post one, and I hope you keep on keeping on; I enjoy reading everything you have to say, and of course looking at all the 'pretty'. Hugs, Kelly1918

dottie said...

Happy Tuesday!

It's a beautiful day here, even if it is a hot one. I'm trying to assemble a shelf for my pantry w/Florence blasting on the stereo to keep me company.

Rhonda, I love SC! Hope you have a wonderful time there.

Super, Enjoy your beach vacation.

Have a great day everyone!

Sydney said...

Well, I don't know what kind of complacent, apathetic, bullshit fandom this girl is hoping to achieve, but she's not going to find her supporters from this blog.

So we shall continue on. I'm happy CC is coming so we can see them again, and together. So many cute moments have come from CC. But I personally find it to be PAINFUL. The screaming and yelling and shouting...the immature questions. Ugh. Whatever...of course I won't be able to keep myself from watching anyway.

katy said...

Rose, Great post, beautiful pics (By the why, I vote for Rob wearing V-neck tee...forever!!) Love Reading your blog and I support you 100%. Thank you for everything that you do!

Hello, Freddie, Groovie, Hope, Kay, Dottie, Sydney, Sue, Believe, Sjjw, Super, Annie, Felicity, A-M, Lover, KstewRocks!!

PS: Groovie, Good luck with job interview...I hope you get that promotion!:)

Take care and be happy everyone

dd said...

Hi Rose,

Unfortunately, I think that girl regrets posting that nonsense because of the negative reaction she got, not because she has realized how hypocrite, contradicting and inaccurate were the things she said. She regrets the drama, not her words.
She doesn't understand the difference btw having a negative opinion about someone and bashing someone.
When I asked her if she was sure that you were behind BWAN, since she wrote an entire post BASHING you based on that assumption, she answered that was her "opinion". See? She doesn't get it.
If she did, she wouldn't have said "Let them hate Kristen all they want, it's their opinion"... She doesn't understand that those people are sharing (and spreading) their hate, not their opinions. Maybe she should read BecauseWeAreNot after all...
She's ok with people hating on Kristen, but she's not ok with people defending her. How twisted is that concept??? We wouldn't have to react to the hate, if it didn't exist.
I have no problem with people that choose to ignore it, but how fucked would be the world (more than it is already) if nobody would stand for others in a more vulnerable position? Kristen may have "hundreds of thousands of dollars to spend on her protection", but regarding the internet she can't do much. We can't either, but at least we can try, supporting her AND giving a different perspective when she's unfairly critisized/bashed.
That's what you do so well in your blog Rose, so please keep doing it!

justme@31 said...

Once again I´m nodding me head in agreement and saying Thank you Rose, for existing and for creating this wonderful blog.

And to you and all of you in Roseland...Have a great great day:)

PL said...

This is totally off topic and not related to anything here but it was sent to me and I have to share.

It is totally crazy.


st said...

@Melinda-you were absolutely right in being cynical about her "apology".Yesterday she said she was sorry and that she wouldn't post....Her apology was given for the sole reason that the majority of comments were disagreeing with her(except of course the "lovely" E and the delusional one-that one she actually thanked for her maturity...lol).She must be so happy that ns are posting there today-after all we should be friends with them because otherwise we will be called stans according to her new post(the one that she wouldn't post for a while).Hypocrisy at its finest(rude on twitter-polite in the comments section-check answer to guest-totally different on twitter-blasts guest about e-mail). Rose,check her friends on twitter-they are the ones that are passive-aggressive towards you, indirectly of course...believers acting above the hatred...(and of course only interested in the sex-the ones that blasted K about not behaving like they want her to-ex.PCAS,MTVVAS-,why she was not in Toronto the whole time etc you know the drill)

DreamerKind said...

Happy Day!

I hear you..and it was nice to have a late night post to ponder last night.

So glad to be a part of your life, even in a small way, joining you in your support of Kristen & Rob, and to have these very special blog buddies, to play with while we seek our somethings, everywhere.

Don't know what to say about that linked item that would make sense. I know if I were a child, I'd want one. As a mother, would I buy one for my child? I don't know and am so glad my kids are grown. Those kind of decisions will be theirs, when I am finally a grandmama, someday, if I am fortunate.

Bless yours, too! I am in the shallow end with packing, and need to venture out into the deeper water, but not get caught in the undertow. Know what I'm talking about?

Vangie said...

HI ladies, i so want to change my icon, but i cannot remember how, help me please! and all the accusing they were bashing rob, look at this! soon is comic, con,yeah!and did you'll reas JAMES FRANCO, wanted rob, on a projest, and it seems he turn him down, read it on twitter, straight from james franco, mouth

PL said...


I can find no earthly reason for the existence of that doll.

Are they going to make a boy doll with a penis so they can show him all the nifty things he can do with it?

Go to your account and edit picture. Delete the picture you have. Find another picture on the web and right click on it and copy image URL. Go back to your account and where it asks for profile picture paste the new one in where it asks for web address. Save profile changes.

angelica1 said...

PL - I was trying to formulate a response to that doll but I'm actually speechless!

DreamerKind said...

You remember the Ken doll with the pseudo penis, don't you? I had one, and somtimes, I put Barbie and Ken on top of each other, and left the room, didn't come back for hours! Think I was 10.

Didn't know what I wanted them to do, but thought they deserved some time alone, I guess. Bet you knew my response would be "out of this world", lol.

Sydney said...

OMG DK! My sister and I totally did that. When my mom would call us up for the night, we would put Ken on top of Barbie in their bed. And yes, I think we did know what that meant.

PL: That doll is creepy. So, it will be breastfeeding little girls? That's gross and disturbing.

DreamerKind said...

And let's not even discuss the inflatable variety of dolls with replicas of real anatomy parts, that pretend work. Oops, I went there didn't I.

Just in a lighthearted mood today, for good things are ahead and the some of the past few days of bad, are behind us, for now.

Thinking about some red wine, too and that always makes me happy.

Hi, there. We could share some vino?

PL said...

Did you all see the price of that doll? I'm pretty sure there are cute baby dolls with BOTTLES cheaper than $89.

You ladies were way more advanced than I was. I never did anything more than have my Barbie and Ken kiss. And I never had an anatomically correct Ken. Damn, I really was a sheltered Catholic school girl.

angelica1 said...

Hi DK, vino sounds great!

Hello DK,DOTTIE,HOPE,KATY,KAY,FREDDIE,DD,ST,PL,MELINDA,RHONDA,KELLY,SYDNEY and anyone I may have missed....FREDDIE...I am almost finished with the WM and Kate book....WOW...Amazing life the royals have...and I have been laughing all the way thru the book...I'm sure ANGELICA and LJ know all about the Wm and Harry escapades...I can just see the bodyfuards chasing them all over the countryside and various continents and islands...carrying them out the back door of numerous pubs because they had "one too many"....OMG....there's a job for ya! We are heading to Broadway at the Beach for Yamatos...a Japanese Steak House....TTYL! And I forgot who commented..Hope?...I often check the blog in the wee hours of the am...heh...

DreamerKind said...

How funny is that? Very funny!

I guess I did know that babies came from a Mom and Dad, and some of the rest of it, so I wanted babies from Barbie/Ken.

I didn't know the realz facts until 12, when someone ruined my innocent thinking with graphic details of the birds/bees (mostly likely my sister, the brat).

No there were no more pumpkin/garden patch or the stork stories, after that.

Probs. was a good thing though, so I could fast forward my life to get married only 4 years later (due to the War in Vietnam, now hate all wars for other reasons!).

Super RN Gas Passer said...

PL...Haha...I saw that this morning on the news...I will stick my neck out and just say it...In my humble opinion, that is over the line...that's the problem with kids today...they are robbed of their childhoods way too early...its one thing to give a baby a bottle and pretend to change its wet diaper but its another thing entirely to pretend to put a baby to breastfeed...it opens the door too early and although breastfeeding is entirely nurturing and appropriate for a new mother it conjures all kinds of potentially harmful things in my mind when little girls are encouraged to "pretend" they are breastfeeding a doll....OK...enough said:)

DreamerKind said...

I am so salivating right at this moment over the Japanese restaurant meal to come for you, and the antics of Wm & Harry.

I've done the unthinkable! I've chilled some Malbec and am enjoying it anyway. My toast-"To England, where my love lies." (Prince Charles, of course.)

I had a Chatty Cathy doll, too, and you can read my comments and understand where that led.

Annie said...

Whatever happened to having simple, innocent childhoods........Those first years go by so quickly.

DreamerKind said...

Nice neck, that you stuck out, and I'm thinking that it is safe from being hacked off. LOL. I see your point and everyone else's. Only glad I don't have to state my own, since it is unformed and silly to boot.

DreamerKind said...

Good day to you!
I agree, innocence is chased away today, certainly with the advertising/media exploitation of children.
Parents have a hard battle, fighting for their children's right, to not know things that may harm them or make them cynical later.

By the way, did you send me a Twitter follow request?

Super RN Gas Passer said...

ANNIE..I agree and look what happened to Michael Jackson because he wasn't allowed to have a "childhood"...

Annie said...

Hi DK! Good day to you too.....How are you? :)

No, I didn't send you a Twitter follow request. I don't have a Twitter account.

Hi Super...Exactly!

DreamerKind said...

Doing fairly well, thanks. Must have been another Annie on Twit.

I'm still on lockdown there, since I am so famous, NOT, but careful about choosing pals there. Unlike on Roseland, where we have Syd, Gruff, Smitty, and Leo, who protect us.

DreamerKind said...

Yoohoo, what are you sipping?

Annie said...

I don't know about Twitter.
I read Rose's tweets but signing up for an account myself just doesn't appeal to me. Twitter seems like a scary place sometimes.

How's the moving/packing going for you?

angelica1 said...

DK - I have Shiraz tonight :)

Mad World

Gary Jules:

All around me are familiar faces
Worn out places
Worn out faces

Bright and early for the daily races
Going no where
Going no where

Their tears are filling up their glasses
No expression
No expression

Hide my head I wanna drown my sorrow
No tomorrow
No tomorrow

And I find I kind of funny
I find it kind of sad
The dreams in which I’m dying
Are the best I’ve ever had

I find it hard to tell you
I find it hard to take
When people run in circles

It's a very very
Mad world
Mad world

Children waiting for the day
They feel good
Happy birthday
Happy birthday

And I feel the way
That every child should
Sit and listen
Sit and listen

Went to school and I was very nervous
No one knew me
No one knew me

Hello teacher tell me
What’s my lesson
Look right through me
Look right through me

And I find I kind of funny
I find it kind of sad
The dreams in which I’m dying
Are the best I’ve ever had

I find it hard to tell you
I find it hard to take
When people run in circles

It's a very very
Mad world
Mad world

Enlarging your world
Mad world

Thank you/orijimi

DreamerKind said...

Moving? Got to see the apt. I'm holding and don't like the location, so will have to choose another, which will delay the move. :)

Packing? Bit by bit, as needed.

As far as Twitter is considered, I am only curious, not invested. Do enjoy having instant chats with my group of twatters.


Annie said...

Hey DK, how about the song Red,Red Wine?

DreamerKind said...

Marley or Diamond?

Annie said...

Hmmm......Decisions, decisions! :)


Berry said...

Just reading this today...great words Rose! Keep them coming! Can't wait for Comic-Con! Good evening everyone!

angelica1 said...

Annie - I like UB40 too

Annie said...

Hi Angelica.......:)
Did you ever see them in concert?

Birdie said...

Hello ladies!

Not moving into the Towers? Do you have an alternate in the works?

I'll weigh in. Really who dreamed that one up? Weird, I don't think I would want my daughter running around pretending to breastfeed. What happened to naturally discovering life's little mysteries? Let's just hang it all out there!

DreamerKind said...

@Annie & angelica1
Nice song choice, didn't think of UB40.

Yeah, bring on Comic Con!
Folks, that we love, being questioned and filmed, for our endless future entertainment.
And it's part of their film promotions, so we need not feel any guilt or angst for admitting that it is. Makes a grown woman, cry...

Annie said...

Thank you! :) :)

Another one of their songs that I absolutely love is:

(I can't help) Falling in love with you.
LOL............My verification word is NONIZ. LOL

DreamerKind said...

Oh, favo one! Still the Towers, only a diff apts. to decide on and maybe have to change move out date with the landlord, if he'll budge.

Too late, B! It's all been hangin out, all over the place, for years now, in many cultures.

Annie said...

Hi Birdie. :)

I read that people are already lining up for Twilight at Comic-con but it isn't until Thursday,isn't it?

DreamerKind said...

Let It All Hang Out

The Hombres-1967:

A preachment, dear friend
You are about to receive on John Barleycorn
Nicotine and the temptations of Eve

No parkin' by the sewer sign
Hot dog, my razors broke
Water drippin' up the spout
But I dont care, let it all hang out

Hangin' from a pine tree by my knees
Sun is shinin' through the shade
Nobody knows what its all about
It's too much, man, let it all hang out

Saw a man walkin' upside down
My T.V.s on the blink
Made Galileo look like a Boy Scout
Sorry 'bout that, let it all hang out

Sleep all day, drive all night
Brain my numb, can't stop now
For sure ain't no doubt
Keep an open mind, let it all hang out

It's rainin' inside a big brown moon
How does that mess you baby up, leg
Eatin' a Reuben sandwich with sauerkraut
Don't stop now, baby, let it all hang out

Let it all hang out
Let it all hang out

Thank you/74sodapop

angelica1 said...

Annie - Yes, a long time ago, 1990 maybe?

DreamerKind said...

Will put the other UB40 favo on later this evening, at some romantic moment...

Birdie said...

I'm glad you are staying at the Towers. They seem to offer so much.
Didn't like the view?

Hi Annie!
I can barely stand in line at the store. That must be quite an undertaking to set up camp for days.

Rhonda said...

Hi Roseland!

Hope & dottie- Thanks, 3 days and counting...can't wait!

PL- That doll is seriously scary :)

Super- Have a nice vacation.

Angelica & DK- I'll join you with my usual red :)

angelica1 said...

Hi Rhonda - I'll pour you a glass :)

Rhonda said...

Thanks, Angelica :)

Birdie said...

Hi Rhonda,
Lucky you! Where are you going?

Rhonda said...

Hi Birdie- The beaches in SC :)

Birdie said...

Sounds wonderful! Are they in this heat wave? At least you will be by the water.

Rhonda said...

Birdie- Yes, the water should help. At least, I hope it does. I'll probably still be fried, though :)

DreamerKind said...

Discovered the view was mostly outside parking lot (large one) and outside smoking/bbq/party/pool area. Not my style, been there etc. Need to see trees, water, and stuff.

Birdie said...

Are they being cooperative about moving you? I would do the same.

Sunscreen,sunscreen! It beats having rain.

DreamerKind said...

Hey! SC sounds lovely. Keep well oiled and watered, but of course, you know that.

Rhonda said...

Birdie & DK- Thanks, I will. I'm fair-skinned anyway,so too much sun has never been my friend :)

DK- I'm sorry about the apt.

Groovie- I just read your comment about the job...good luck!

DreamerKind said...

The bldg. rep is working closely with me, but the landlord here, don't know yet.

Put me down as a refence and they'll be sure to promote you after I tell them how great thou art. Best of luck, too, and I'll wave the wand for you.

angelica1 said...

Rhonda, I really need to decide where I'm going on holiday,it's only 4 weeks away and I've considered just about everywhere in the world :)

Birdie said...

Put that old DK charm on that landlord and a little wave of your wand. No problem.

Rhonda said...

Angelica- LOL! It's a tough decision, but if it were me, I'd go with tropical and warm. What's the rest of your household thinking?

Birdie said...

Now that is a dilemma I would like to have!

DreamerKind said...

U.S.A! Come to see us.

angelica1 said...

Rhonda - We have the usual - one who's sick of airports and one who thinks Brazil's a great idea :)

Birdie - I know, I shouldn't complain, I'm overthinking it!

angelica1 said...

DK - I will be in a few months :)

dottie said...

Hello my loves!

Angelica, you'll have to let us know where you decide to vacation. The possibilities are endless!

Melinda, I hope today has been better for you.

Rhonda, I just love the Carolina beaches!

Hugs to all the regs!

dottie said...

Angelica, I imagine with as much as your husband travels, being at home is his idea of a dream vacation. :)

Rhonda said...

Hi dottie :)

Angelica- Brazil sounds good :)

Birdie said...

Have you ever been to Brazil? I don't think I could pass on that.

angelica1 said...

dottie - It is, or failing that, anywhere that doesn't involve flights!

Rhonda, Birdie - I haven't been to Brazil yet, I do want to go. My sister and I are planning to take my niece next year but she doesn't know yet. We're trying to deflect her :)

dottie said...

Brazil does sound good, Angelica. And very romantic!

Hi Rhonda and Birdie :)

Birdie said...

Hello Dottie!
Staying cool?

PL said...

Hi Rhonda, Angelica, Birdie, Dottie.

If I had my choice of anywhere in the world for vacation I would pick Tuscany, but, Angelica, you've probably already been there. How about Bali?


I laughed at your pun about the doll when you said let's let it all hang out.

Rhonda said...

Angelica- Oh, that will be a great girls trip :)

Birdie- I can't remember if I asked about your sister's visit. Did you have a nice time with her?

Rhonda said...

Hi PL :)

Kenzz said...

Hello to all my favorite ladies in Roseland :)

Rose, keep doin' what you do so well... where might we all be without your funny, irreverent, somehow sane, and ultimately "tell-it-like-it-is" words?

Super & Rhonda: have fun on vaca!

DK: Keep packin', honey! Hope that move finally gets under way to a place deserving of our FGM!

Groovie: I'll add my good thoughts to that possible promotion...never overlook the power of Roseland positive thinking! lol

Hi to dottie, angelica, Birdie, Annie, and anyone else still on the blog this evening... happy Tuesday :)

Last, but certainly not least, to Smitty & Gruff: you're both unbearably sweet to care about Rose so much... what lovely friends you are to her and all of us here in Roseland <3

angelica1 said...

PL - Tuscany is beautiful :) He has issues with Bali, mention of it induces outbursts of foul language usually!

angelica1 said...

Hi Kenzz :)

Birdie said...

Thanks for asking. Yes, I love my siblings, but enjoy her the most. So it is just easy to hang with her.

Rhonda said...

Hi Kenzz :)

PL said...


What possible issues could he have with Bali?

Native girls in grass skirts? Is he opposed to that? I don't really know if there are native girls, just sounded good.

dottie said...

Birdie, I'm trying to stay cool but it's not easy here!

Hi PL and Kenzz :)

Angelica, does your husband go to the same places all the time or is he able to go to different places?

Freddie said...

Hi dottie, Rhonda, Birdie, Angelica, PL and Kenzz – I hope you are all well. I’m just popping in to say hi.

Birdie – how is the remaining rodent??

Angelica and Rhonda – all this talk of vacation has me envious (despite the fact that I already had some vacation). Somehow other people's vacations always sound more exotic than my own LOL. Enjoy Rhonda, in case I miss you between now and when you leave. Angelica – good luck with the Brazil negotiations with your hubby.

Dottie – how’s the house? Any other Christmas presents like your kitchen table?

Groovie – I’m not sure if you will see this now, but I also wanted to wish you good luck with your interview.

Kenzz – where ya been? You were missed.

PL – have things cooled down at all?

angelica1 said...

PL - When he was there on business a few years ago, they apparently invited him to a traditional celebration and made him wear "a pink dress thing"

Birdie said...

Hi Kenzz!

dottie said...

Hi Freddie! House is good :P

Sydney said...

Angelica: too bad Greece is such a mess right now. That is one of my favorite places I've ever been. Hungary is about to have their big national holiday in August...it's always a big party. I also love Croatia and Southern France.

DK: I just got back from a happy hour which you inspired. There's this bar near my office that serves chilled red wine. Delicious!

Freddie said...

Angelica - how about Bora Bora? It always looks beautiful.

What does your husband like to do on vacation?

angelica1 said...

dottie - He used to cover Europe,Middle East and Asia but his role changed earlier this year and he's now global although his "office" is technically in Brussels

Rhonda said...

Angelica- LMAO! You needed pictures of that one :)

Hi Freddie- Thank you :)

Birdie said...

Still alive and that garage is damn hot. I think rats have a strong constitution.

PL said...

Angelica, I hope you got a picture of him in "the pink dress thing". I could see where he wouldn't want a repeat.


It is still hot here as most of the country is experiencing. I don't think my air conditioning has stopped all day. I'm fortunate to have the lake so close. I feel for those that don't have central air and window units are hard to come by right now.

dottie said...

Angelica, Wow! I can see why your husband isn't excited about getting back on an airplane. Maybe a cruise? lol

Hey Sydney!

Rhonda said...

Hi Sydney- I loved Hungary when I went too :)

I've never been to Greece. I bet it was beautiful.

Freddie said...

Pl - it's toasty here as well and expected to get worse through the week end. My air conditioner has been going since the end of May. I tell myself it's for the cat's sake. Ya right. LOL Stay as cool as you can. Lake side sounds wonderful.

angelica1 said...

Hi Freddie - I agree, Bora Bora does look good :) His ideal holiday is a cottage in the country. He likes to walk the dogs, drink wine, just ordinary things which he rarely gets the chance to do.

Sydney - Greece is great and I have a feeling France is where we'll end up. It's probably the middle ground,I get sun and we can go by ferry :)

Freddie said...

Hi Sydney!

I'd love to see Greece as well - particularly the ruins at Mykonos.

Rhonda said...

Angelica- Awww, that's actually kind of sweet :)

Freddie- MyKonos...me too :)

Sydney said...

Hi Dottie!

Rhonda: right? I thought Hungary would be all depressing Eastern Bloc, but Budapest is gorgeous. We also went to Croatia during that trip. It's like the new Italian Riviera. It was also stunning.

angelica1 said...

PL, Rhonda - There is a picture, his best friend has it. There's an agreement that if he goes to the Motor Show with him whenever it's on,work permitting, the picture stays private :)

Rhonda said...

Angelica- HaHa...that's too funny!

Sydney- I thought Heroes Square was cool.

DreamerKind said...

We would have a great time, you and I, anywhere in the world!

@dottie, Kenzz, Freddie, PL

Been in and out of here the past while, so already said "Boo" to the rest of you...:)

Word verf: dystfu

"Darlin', you stfu!"

Freddie said...

Hi DK - how are you? Liked your song choices this afternoon.

DreamerKind said...

That's cool, between two friends, keeping fun memories, private.

dottie said...

Hi DK :)

DreamerKind said...

I'm well, and enjoying the travel talk you are all having, while dreaming of other places/climes. Living vicariously through y'all.

Sydney said...

Rhonda, Heroes Square is where the museums and galleries are right? I enjoyed that too. We stayed in a place right on the Danube. Everything was within walking distance...these like, huge outdoor beer garden/club places. We had a blast.

PL said...

It is too hot to walk STFU so I'm going to go read for awhile, after hula hooping, of course.

Catch you all later.

Kenzz said...

HI Freddie, PL, and Sydney...

Freddie, I missed you guys, too... you know how that pesky real life gets in the way of my guilty pleasure (pattinsonintoxication.com!)

I've been keeping tabs in-and-out... looked at that blog that Smitty brought up... what a great group of Roselanders who responded... especially enjoyed Smitty's comments .. lol

angelica: the story about why the hubs doesn't like Bora Bora- priceless! An affront to his manhood such as that takes a long time to get over!

Rhonda said...

Sydney- Yes, that's right. We took a boat ride on the Danube.

Bye PL :)

Freddie said...

PL - have a good evening.

Kenzz - yeah, that real life thing can be quite an annoyance. LOL. Nice that you could pop in. You missed the wedding planning....

beaculen said...

OH NOOOO, more drama! Funny how it's usually the haters stirrring up the shit. Funny how that works lol. Sorry you have to deal with it Rose, but I will say you handle it very well. I agree with you about defending Kristen, she needs it. And your right, the main reason is who she happened to fall in love with, and who happens to love her. I know eventually this will blow over, but geez there's still people who hate Angelina Jolie because Brad Pitt's not married to Jennifer Aniston anymore. Some people have so much opinion about people they don't even know, amazing. Great post Rose, keep up the good work!

Kenzz said...

Nite PL... happy reading

I read the wedding stuff the next day on our way to the lake or the Cape (can't remember I've been out & about so much this summer!)... I just about choked to death I was both laughing so hard, and marvelling at the creativity of the Roselanders! It was great to see Syd stop in, and I don't know how Rose could possibly resist his entreaties of marriage(well, of course Mr. Rose probably has SOMETHING to say about the situation! haha)

How has your summer been so far?

Kenzz said...

HI beacullen...

LIZ said...

GEE, I feel so left out. I have ABSOLUTELY NO IDEA WHAT JUST HAPPENED!!!! I was following Twitter the last few days just like everyone but I guess I wasn't following the right (or the wrong) people.

ROSE, glad you straightened them out, whatever happened. WE all know what you do, how well you do it and I wouldn't be surprised if Rob & Kristen know about your wonderful blog.

Thanks for being here.

Freddie said...

Kenzz - yes, Roselanders are very creative.

Summer has been good, although it's gone by so incredibly fast. I can't wrap my head around the fact that it's the middle of July. I had a nice week in Montreal a few weeks ago, but it's been back to work since then. I suspect my next break won't be until late October/ November.

You sound like you've been busy - a good busy. The Cape and Maine sound wonderful.

Kenzz said...

Freddie, I forgot about your Montreal trip... hope it was all you were hoping for...

Maine and Cape Cod have been great weather-wise, but the packing, unpacking, traffic jams, and spending just a few too many days with extended family have been...tiresome? We're home for a couple of weeks now, so I'm planning my turn at hosting the monthly book club this week...hoping to hold it outside, if the rain holds off...

Freddie said...

Kenzz - travel and seeing family is wonderful, but it's always nice to get home and relax. Good luck with the book club event. I'm sure you will be the hostest with the mostest.

Kenzz said...

Freddie, thanks for teh vote of confidence...I decide on my apps menu tomorrow...

Hubs just walked thru the door after a dinner out, so I'll bid you all "adieu"!

Atticus said...

Hi Rose, haven't commented for awhile but still faithfully read your blog. This fandom is so fucked up and IMO need more posts from you, Delaney, BWAN and many others if for no other reason than stirring the fucking pot to get all that nasty putrid sledge to evaporate into a black void. If I knew how to start one, I would.

I'll hold anyone in high esteem who defends Kristen and Rob, but more importantly, Kristen because she is the one that receives most of this bullshit. She could avoid all this drama if she wasn't a delicously handsome someone's GF but the heart knows what the heart wants and that is Kristen loves Rob loves Kristen and now they both love Bear.

cutiestar said...


I finally read the post from that other blog and I’m usually pretty mild tempered, but this kind of set me off. Basically, this person is telling us we should ignore hate, sweep it under the rug, pretend it doesn’t exist. All I can think is how passive aggressive and what a coward they are.

A problem is a problem and should not be ignored, especially when it comes to hate. If we all just ignored hate than racism would still be as bad as it was Pre-Civil Rights Movement, women would still not be able to vote, there would not be any disability laws, gay marriages would still be completely unheard of, and I can keep going. But thanks to courageous people that chose to fight for others, selflessly, and represent and champion the cause, there have been changes for the better. I know some may think these are extreme examples, but the point is that if someone didn’t have the courage to stand up against wrong doing and hatred, then there would never had been any progress in eliminating it.

So Rose, thanks for not being a coward and devoting your time and energy to fight unjust and neurotic hate against a now 21 year old actress, who never did anything but love, support, and always stuck by Robert Pattinson. Thanks Rose for being the voice of reason against grown women who cannot seem to understand that Robert Pattinson is not an object or the fictional character that they have created in their heads, but is a live human being with a heartbeat, brains, his own thoughts, ambitions, and feelings.

I’ve said this many times, but I'll say it again...keep doing what you do and never feel like it is wrong or for nothing because your words and passion behind your words are heard and felt by many. You have a band of people who support and thank you everyday.

Change The World

Eric Clapton:

If I could reach the stars
I'd pull one down for you
Shine it on my heart
So you could see the truth

That this love I have inside
Is everything it seems
But for now I find
It's only in my dreams

That I can change the world
I would be the sunlight in your universe
You will think my love was really something good
Baby if I could change the world

If I could be king even for a day
I'd take you as my queen
I'd have it no other way

And our love will rule
In this kingdom we have made
Till then I'd be a fool
Wishin' for the day

That I can change the world
I would be the sunlight in your universe
You will think my love was really something good
Baby if I could change the world

Thank you/Clark200666

(I Can't Help) Falling In Love With You


Wise men say
Only fools rush in
But I can't help
Falling in love with you

Shall I stay
Would it be a sin
If I can't help
Falling in love with you

As a river flows
Gently to the sea
Darling so it goes
Some things
Are meant to be

Take my hand
Take my whole life too
For I can't help
Falling in love with you

For I can't help
Falling in love
With you

Thank you/houstonjohn5

It's Worth It

Choosey Lover

The Isley Brothers-1983:

Choosey lover
Girl, I'm so proud of you

I'm so glad you chose me, baby (Baby)
And I'll make you so happy

(Thought I had a lover) Thought I had a lover
But I was kiddin' myself, baby

(By the time I learned about it) By the time I learned the truth about it
She was sleepin' with someone else
Oh, but not you, baby

'Cause you've given me
(Given me security)
Given me security, baby
And you're provin' what you said

(I never worry about you) Never worry about you, baby
Jumpin' in and out of bed
No, not my baby

Choosey lover (You're so choosey)
Girl, I'm so proud of you
I'm so glad you chose me, baby (Baby)
And I'll make you so happy

Choosey lover (You're so choosey)
Girl, I'm so proud of you
I'm so glad you chose me, baby
And I'll make you so happy

Mary Chapin Carpenter:

Sun goes down and says goodnight
Pull your covers up real tight
By your bed we'll leave a light
To guide you off to dreamland

Your pillows soft
Your bed is warm
Your eyes are tired
When day is done

One more kiss
And you'll be gone
On your way
To dreamland

Every sleepy boy and girl
In every bed
Around the world

Can hear the stars
Up in the sky
Whispering a lullaby

Who knows where
You'll fly away
Winging past the light of day

The man in the moon
And the milky way
Welcome you to dreamland

Thank you/ozinesz

Hi all!

See I have been out of the loop for a while here. I check the blog and of course! What do I see? More drama. Old.. Really fucken Old...

I have too add, I know Boubie though we have not spoken for a while I am a bit confused and disappointed on what exactly happened here unless things have changed I was under the impression she was a KS and RP supporter and was always on there side. ANYWAY I think sometimes when people get blogs they can lose focus on what matters maybe trying too get hits? More twitter followers?( cause ya know having the most twitter followers means you are cool)...

People need too remember words HURT. Words can cut, think before you speak. It's not that hard people. Please just stop being manic!! For me there is a difference between a Hater and having a opinion. Having a "opinion" should not be used as excuse too hate!

Rose you have never claimed too be a "insider" or know anything. If fucken pisses me off that people cant either read? Or make there own assumptions and state it as truth with that end up twisting the truth into there own reality.

I have said this before and I will say it again.

If you dont like what Rose writes DON'T READ HERE.

But I will tell you, that it is yours LOSS. ;)

WOW I am so out of the loop. I just read I must be a STAN? WTF is that now ? And who makes this shit up?

OMG people Really!! Ugh..... So sick of it.

Why cant people rally against bulling and not be called names?

Why cant people stick up for others without being criticized? Is that not a GOOD thing?

Why it easier just too hate for some?

I am so done with this shit.

So, who was the "guest" on that blog, commenting about "militants"?

Was it meant as an insult or what? ...I'm just going to clarify after this comment, as fast as I can so people don't think I went on that blog to cause trouble.

Yes I used to comment here very frequently. I did used to get into this whole, R/K who has the most haters debat, which I realised from a lovely bunch of people here - only stirred up drama. When I saw others trying to start that up, what I got warned about I remember trying to warn others themselves, to I suppose help you all out. I changed my way of commenting anyway. So I'm hoping some of you have gotten over that, and don't hold a grudge.

Also as I've said and what you've probably understood, I don't comment here hardly anymore. I'm a busy person. But I do follow Rose's blog and her twitter to hear of any updates, because as well all agree: she's got good intentions and is funny and is so welcoming.

Good morning and happy Wednesday everyone!

Once again Rose you have addressed the bs that people throw at you with humor and class (which is sadly lacking in the fandom).

I quite like the cleverness of the title post. Pretty sure if I were in your shoes that would be me too.

Sometimes I feel the internet has done a huge disservice to the human race. People now think it's okay to act however they want under the disguise of an "opinion" while using "anonymity". It's wrong and if there are people that want to shine a light on it more power to them.

Now who's excited for CC? I know I am! I hope we see some great moments and have lots of laughs (and maybe a little less screaming? One could hope, right?)!

Dottie- Yesterday was much better. Done with lay offs, which there are pros and cons associated with so now onto the next part. Thanks for the concern! :)

Angelica- Does your husband like Brussels? I want to go there one day. It's #3 on my list of places to visit.

PL- That doll...I just can't get over the price! Some little girls will "nurse" their babies when playing house but a $10 doll does the same thing. Why anyone would buy it is beyond me.

Groovie- Good luck with the interview. If it is meant to be yours you will get it!

Kenzz- Glad to see you back! Hope you enjoyed the Cape. It has always looked like a pretty place to visit.

It's time for a cup of Joe. My throat is sightly sore (I have been around sick nieces so I'm sure I got their summer cold) and the warmth sounds just right. TTFN!

Okay so to clarify...I heard about what happened. I'm not going to drag it up again. It's something we all should move on from.

But I commented on that girl's blog. I saw a pattern of how she was condemning fans of R/K especially anyone who wants to defend Kristen against unnamed, unidentified hyenas/haters. And then how she was justifying/defending haters by saying it's their opinion. So an opinion or an obsession, gives people the right to send death threats or to continue calling someone a b****?

Someone I know, said clearly it's not an opinion. It's mad obsession. I gave an example of an opinion. Being asked about opinions on TV soap operas. We won't everday share our opinion on TV soap operars. But every once in a while when we see fit. When it's an everday thing that's a mad obsession.

I saw a lot of people disagreeing with that girl. I thought it best to tell her, and get her off that high horse of hers. But she's still firmly in the saddle. And doesn't want any advice, which you'd think for example, if Rose offended us or gave the wrong impression to anyone (eg people think she loves and focuses on the negatives), that she'd defend her point. But put that girl's ideas down to being in denial, that she doesn't want to feel like the one in the wrong even after everything she's been back and forth on.

But the problem with a girl when they're in denial, and believe me, on the internet you meet a lot of in denial people...is that they'll agree with hate unless they think they're being hated on and then they won't tolerate it and insult others by insults or labels. They reply to what they want to reply to try and look smart.

My last comment I'm sure was, that she was desperate for people to talk to. Someone said they'd leave and come onto reading a post on here. But soon after that comment, the girl said she'd attempt to listen or talk to her. Where were the attempts at an early stage?

I said to her I didn't mean offence. I was giving her advice. I gave her a last chance to say something to me, instead of a "fuck you". I even apologized and suggested we clear the air. But she didn't respond in any form, to an apology or suggestions. R U D E. But there you have it.

kstewrocks said...

Melinda, I'm definitely excited for CC. Have you all figured out how you'll watch it? Through a livestream or video links, or just by word of mouth on twitter?

angelica1 said...

Hi Melinda - Brussels is really nice, you should definitely go when you have the chance :)

Melinda said...


I think I am going to go with MTV's live stream. Those in the UK will not have access according to the website which sucks for the UK fans.

Robstenation has a list of links for a few live streams if you are looking for one.

Got to grab my coffee and head to work. Hope you have a great day/evening.

PS- Angelica I just saw you had replied as I was getting ready to post. Brussels looks like a really beautiful city so I've always wanted to go. Good luck in the vacation search. It's always hard for me because I have too many places I want to visit!!

kstewrocks said...

Ah I know, Melinda, I heard about how UK fans won't be able to watch. I think there's an EW stream though? I'll have a look on there again to confirm.

Good morning dear Rose and Roselanders,

Groovie, wishing you good luck and the very best with your interview for the job promotiion.

Hope y'all are staying safe with the unusually hot weather throughout most of the country here stateside.

Am smiling a huge smile after seeing that a wonderful young man, his adorable dog and his best buddy, were out and about enjoying the day. Walking, laughing, taking in the fresh air and sunshine, looking carefree and very happy. Do feel bad that they were snapped by the razzi. Hope they were able to continue on with their walk and have a great visit.

Have been very busy, but that is good because I'm getting closer to vacay time. After reading the comments, dear Roselanders, I must say y'all have been to some amazing and wonderful places.

Hugs for y'all. Am so proud of you, Rose and all of y'all who consistently stand up for defending what is right. Honesty, sanity, and kindness.

Have a wonderful Wednesday. Tomorrow, the start of CC, will be here before we know it!
Enjoy, life is good!

Hi Olivia! Getting ready for school?

dottie said...

Happy Humpday, Roseland!

I hope all of you are happy and enjoying the day.

Hi IB, quick **wave** to dottie, too!
Yes, have been doing some unit planning and activity creation. You know it is a never ending process. As soon as one year ends, we begin planning for the next one. I do love the creativity involved. My students are so wonderful, bright and a joy to work with. I tell them that they keep me young and on my toes.

My other home away from home is at at a little shoppe and is just part time. It is a fun, busy, and up to date place where I truly enjoy the young staff, see lots of friends in the community and keep my clothing habit in check with the wonderful discount. No homework from here and it keeps me busy year round and out of trouble, especially during the holidays and summers when the university girls need more time off.

Meant to mention how I thought of Cosmopolis (the part where André Petrescu, the pastry assassin "crèmed" Eric Packer), when I watched the evening news last night. Murdoch got it good....a cream pie in the face.....plus......who knew his wife could throw a right hook! What a monumental, insidious and revolting scandal this is turning out to be as more and more information is uncovered and released.

Off to work. Will peek in later this evening. Take care everyone.
Hugs for Rose, Smitty, Gruff and Syd.
