Rob and Kristen- 10 Good Things.

One look says it all...

There is a lot of negativity out there in this fandom.
I know... I sometimes promote it.
Hey... What can I say?
I'm a cynic by nature.
I see some of the bullshit... I respond to it.
So sometimes it's better if I just post without reading
my email/DMs/Twitter/Blog first.

I decided to try and write about the 10 things
I love about this fandom...
The movies... the books... the people.
OK... OK...
10 might be a stretch
(See? Cynicism)
But there really have been GOOD things
to come out of all this.
There really has.
And btw...
Before I get started.
You DID note my being a cynic... right?
And me...
Who doesn't believe anything at face value
Who doesn't trust easily
Who has doubts on the best of intentions
Has no trouble believing in 
Rob and Kristen.
Imagine that.


10 Things I Love About Twilight
And its Fandom
(in no particular order)

This is as close to Edward as I am ever going to get...
1. Edward.

Funny thing is...
Over the course of the last 3 years
(Yes, it's been 3 years and I'm still here!)
I've forgotten about my love for Edward.
I mean... he started this all.
I know the Twilight books get a lot of shit...
And OK... they aren't classic masterpieces.
But they were enjoyable to read
and they had Edward.
You gotta give Stephenie Meyers credit for that.
I was completely fascinated by Edward.
And I had a version of him in my head...
And when I saw the above picture of Rob?
I knew everything was going to be OK.
This is why Twilight remains my favorite of the movies
(Thus far)
Because it gave me my Edward...
and with Edward came Robert Pattinson.

Hello Edward!

I can admit it.
I STILL get chills when I see this scene.
Edward strolling into the cafeteria...
Looking all beautiful and complex.
It was the first time I got to see my Edward
up close...
and outside of my head.
I wasn't disappointed.

Why so gorgeous Robert?
2. Shit... I'm only on 2???

So Edward leads us to Robert.
And oh what a joyous wonderful trip it has been!
Robert Pattinson.
Whom I briefly recalled as the beautiful boy from Harry Potter...
Crashed into my head...
and my heart
with every new picture I saw...
with every adorable, charming
completely mesmerizing word he uttered.
And it never seemed to have an end...
Because with every interview
I found something else to love 
about this modest, witty and adorkable man.
And he still has that effect on me
Even now.

And that brings us to...

Big green eyes and they're as wide as the moon.
3. Kristen.
Twilight led me to Kristen as well.
And OK...
At first I was a bit envious of her close proximity
to Robert Pattinson.
I didn't know much about her
But as time went along
I saw a lot of things I liked.
First of all...
She's naturally beautiful
She's shy and awkward in public
(Although she is proving to have conquered that recently)
She's not a girly girl..
who is overly concerned with her hair and makeup
She dresses for comfort rather than style...
and yet has a unique style all her own.
She's immensely dedicated to the characters she portrays on screen...
and puts a piece of herself in every one...
which makes her vulnerable.
She's quirky and funny
and she swears as naturally as breathing.
She's honest and doesn't suffer fools gladly.
Best of all?
She makes Robert happy.
Well it's obviously a mutual thing
seeing as they both are beautifully happy
and full of smiles and laughter
when they are together.

And yes.
I find myself kinda protective of her.
I think a lot of the shit that gets thrown at her 
on a daily basis 
is undeserved and based on jealousy and hatred.
Both wasted emotions.
So I choose to focus on the love and happiness
That I see between her and Robert.

Twirling > Foaming

Those eyes...

4. Thomas Sturridge.
Well... Robert led me to Tom.
I didn't know who he was at first either.
But I kept seeing him...
Kinda in the background where Rob was.
All beardY and lurkY.
And the pictures that came out of Rob and Tom together
always showed two guys who were really great friends.
How can you NOT love that?
Tom goes out of his way not to discuss his friend.
Tom is loyal.
Tom is true.
Tom is Rob's best friend for a reason.
But lets get past Rob for a minute.
Let's look at Tom on his own... OK?
I mean... sometimes I think you have to have 
piercing eyes and a great jawline
to even be a member of the "Brit Pack"
But Tom is more than gorgeous...
Have you watched some of his movies?
I'm particularly fond of Pirate Radio.
He's funny and sweet and sexy
and his accent?
I stand by my opinion that Tom's accent
trumps Rob's.
It just does.
Listening to him talk makes me meltY...
and swoonY
and any other word I can randomly attach a Y to.
I adore Tom Sturridge.

3 amigos
How can you look at this picture...
and NOT smile?
Rob and Tom.
Laughing and walking.
Being friends.

Loyalty and Friendship mean a lot.

Triangle of heaven?

5. Halfway there!!

Being in this Twilight fandom...
has also made me aware of the above...
I know you are all aware of my penchant 
for the man in motion.
Maybe it started when he strolled thru the cafeteria 
in Twilight?
Interesting thought.

Sexy Strut.
Then seeing Rob stroll across the parking lot in New Moon?
I can thank Twilight
(and Catherine Hardwick, I suppose)
for exposing me to my 
Robert Pattinson Walking Addiction.
But guess what?
I'm not complaining.
Not me.

Rob. Piano. Died.

7. Robert.
I must thank Catherine Hardwicke for bringing this to the screen.
She cast Robert.
She introduced him by walking into the cafeteria...
she not only had him play piano in Twilight
but she put a couple of his songs on the soundtrack.
I mean...
Music is important to Edward...
And the imagery of Robert at the piano?
You get it.
I know you do.
So thanks to this...
I'm a huge fan of Rob and his music.
Have you really listened to him play guitar?
It breaks my heart.

I hoping if he has time off that he gets a chance
to explore his musical side...
Perhaps write some (love) songs
and work on a CD?
Puppies are adorkable.
8. Bear
Bear is a positive...
He was in a shelter.
Rob and Kristen
(You know it's true)
rescued his adorable floppy eared self.
Rob says where his dog is... is home.
And since it's their dog...
I guess Kristen is home.

And one small thing...
I have a German Shepherd
(which Bear is part mixed with)
And when I got Kaia...
She was almost completely black
and had floppy ears...
She is Tan/Black
and her ears are straight up..

Don't mess with her...
That's what happens with puppies.
They grow...
They change...
Their ears sometimes stop being floppy.

As long as they only have ONE personality... I'm OK.

9. Twilight led me to Robert...
And Robert led me here.
3 years ago the forums and blogs about Robert
weren't as plentiful as they are now.
And I found myself commenting at one in particular
more and more often.
ROBsessed was my first taste of what this community
could really offer.
I found women there... who shared my love of Rob
and Twilight.
We could laugh and chat
and knowing they were there...
Sharing my thoughts and feelings...
Made it better for me.
Made me feel OK.
Made me feel like I wasn't completely insane
for crushing on this actor.
I made some good friends there...
And I still love them to this day.
Rob also led me to Twitter.
Twitter is where I go to have a laugh
(and my lord, there are plenty to be found there)
To hang out with like minded people...
Again... I've made some good buddies on Twitter...
People I truly consider friends.
Twitter is also a great place to get 
UP TO THE MINUTE news on Rob/Kristen/Tom
and anything else you might have an interest in.
I know that a lot of stuff you see on Twitter
needs huge amounts of salt
And you really need a good sense of humor
to plow through the daily bullshit and drama.
But good people.
Good times.
A few laughs...
and knowing its not serious stuff.
It's fucking Twitter.

10. Vampires.
So what if I liked vampires before Twilight?
I've always kinda had a thing for them.
Goes back to "Salem's Lot" by Stephen King
(Good book...you should read it)
I'm kinda fascinated by them.
When I first heard about Twilight 
the thing that actually made me buy the books
were that they were about vampires.
So can we thank Twilight for
Vampire Diaries?
True Blood?
Probably not...
I think those were books before Twilight...
and obviously vampires have been around for a long time.
But the look of Vampire Diaries?
That is ALL Twilight
(and more Edward)
And I love both Vampire Diaries
and True Blood...
And sometimes I wonder if those shows would
have been even made if not for the phenomenon
(Damn I can hear Oprah saying that word)
that was Twilight.
Maybe so?
It doesn't really matter.
When I don't have Edward to watch...
I can watch Damon and Stephen
or Eric

Now THAT'S a werewolf!

or Alcide
(OK, Alcide is a werewolf... but HOT DAMN
The lyrics...
"Whatta man, whatta man, whatta mighty good man"
Just pops into my head.)

So there you have it.
10 Good things that Twilight brought me.
And my next post?
1 million shitty things about Twilight.
I will try to cut it down by the time I actually post it.

This post is brought to you by the sheep that is green.
Long live the sheep.
May it always be green.

Bye for now

Hi everyone,

Great post Rose!...very cute :)

Thanks to everyone who sent good wishes for my brothers wedding. It was a gorgeous day and the weather stayed sunny all weekend.

Right I'm off to google the guy in the last picture........freaking hell Rose who IS he?? haha

Massive love to all,


Syd said...

Hello Liza!

What's this I heard about you having love bites round your whole neck? I'm not sure what to think except whoever put them there is not good enough for you.


Groovie said...

Good post Rose!
There may be fan bullshit & fan drama, but there is a lot of good, positive & happy things about the "fandom" in general.
Sane, cool fans coming together for events like comic-con, sharing the pix/vids and loving the cuteness & happiness that Rob & Kristen bring.
Good stuff!

Love all the cute pix as well.
Rob & Kristen are definite "good" that came from twilight. Love to see all the positive things happening in their lives both professionally & personally!
And Tom too, I also LOVE Pirate Radio, excellent film!

Hello to everyone, hope u are all having a good day! And that its going by faster than mine, work is dragging! Lol!

Groovie said...

Also, your doggie is really cute Rose! She looks fierce too!

Lil Bear will grow up someday and hopefully scare the shit out of paparazzi that try to get too close to take his picture when he is out with "mom and dad" lol!

Hello Liza & Syd

Kay said...

Sweet post of all the positives out there in the midst of all the fandom crazy.....curious what your secret #6 is.....hehe ;)

Hi Liza! So glad you had a fabulous time and that everything went well for the wedding! :)

Wishing you all a peaceful and happy Tuesday <3

toncit said...

hi rose
I always thought it's necessary take positivity about everything and this list includes many of the things I love!
I have to say the best quote if you let me"She makes Robert happy"and"Well it's obviously a mutual thing" this is my favorite part!
thanks for posting

MySoCalledLife said...

Oh Rose! I loved this one. It's full of goodness... Also, your dog is so cute (although, per your caption, I would NOT want to mess with him).

I'm staying far away from the usual drama and am still reveling in all the R/K wins from this weekend. That Bel Ami trailer knocked me out and Kristen as Snow White?!! So bad ass! Love her.... Love them. All good things to them & you.

Hi to everyone in Roseland. Hope you all have a good day.

Kay said...

Hi Syd, Groovie and anyone else I miss. Have a great day!

LJ said...

Hey Syd! long time no speak :)

HAHAHAHA! Oh you should have seen him Syd love, he looked just like the guy in Roses's last pic only fitter. Not only did I have love bites round my whole neck, he wrote my name in them all down my back it was so romantic.............LOL

dottie said...

Great post, ROSE! Your dog is gorgeous, by the way.

LIZA, I'm glad your brother's wedding was a success. See, I'm not the only one who doesn't believe your "curling iron" excuse! LOL Hey SYD!

Have a great day, fellow Roselanders!

LJ said...

Hi Groovie, Kay and Dottie!

Syd said...

What's good for the ram is good for the ewe I suppose so, without further delay, I present 10 things I love about RoseSee

1. She is creative. Her writing (regardless of the topic) is refreshing and unique and makes me smile.

2. She is loyal. If you ever wonder what the real Rose is like, imagine the best friend you could ever have. Someone who would keep secrets, listen, worry for you, laugh with you and make you feel special. That's Rose.

3. She gets really really annoyed when she spells something wrong. Its adorable and funny and completely entertaining.

4. She is one of the world's greatest mothers. Without going into detail here, the term "mama bear" may have evolved after someone watched Rose ferociously and enthusiastically raise her children. No children have ever been loved more than hers.

5. When Rose drinks she dances. I haven't witnessed this myself yet but apparently, its quite amusing and sexy. Hmmmmmm....

6. Rose has a Nana named Rose who makes double chocolate cake with cream cheese frosting and pasta and all other kinds of delicious food.

7. Rose is beautiful. Trust me on this, she's a naturally beautiful person, inside and out. Of course, there's this one orange..oh nevermind.

8. Rose is smart. She understands more than most people will ever know. She knows not just academic things but she knows people. She gives excellent advise.

9. Rose is funny. REALLY funny. Funny as in, literally fall of the bed laughing funny. I think it goes with the smart thing but her sense of humour is lovely.

10. Rose likes me. She puts up with all kinds of crap and still is my friend. You have to admire anyone who puts up with my shit. Thanks for liking me Rose. I'm glad we are friends.

Syd said...

LIZA you cannot allow this to go on!!! I am wondering exactly, did he write just "Liza" or your whole name because that would mean he would not fit it all on your back but would be.....


You should behave sweet girl. That last guy btw, he's nice if you don't mind the transgender type. Didn't know that suited you but to each her own.

Syd said...

Hi to the rest too--Groovie, Dottie, Kay and anyone I missed.

Groovie said...

Syd, look at you getting all cute with your list, its very sweet!

Hi dottie & kay!

dottie said...

Hey Groovie and Kay!

I love your list, SYD. ROSE is indeed a special person. You only have to read her blog a few times to see that.

LIZA, You are hilarious! Believe it or not, I really and truly did use the curling iron excuse once. Looking back, I don't think my mother believed me at all. LOL

Syd said...


Of course your mother didn't believe you. NOBODY actually believes that excuse.

Claire said...


I don't disagree with much that you right, but I prefer Rob's accent all day LOL

When he said ''making love on the beach'' at the Breaking Dawn panel I think most of the female viewers were sitting in a puddle PMSL

Claire said...

That should read *write* not *right*

LJ said...

Oh yes the whole name Syd...where would be the fun in it otherwise?..

...and the last guy, well he has the body, but hes no 6th picture down lets face it.

Aww...and the 10 things you love about Rose is very sweet. She's lucky to have you as a friend too.

DreamerKind said...

@Syd, Liza, dottie, Groovie, Kay, Groovie, MYSCL & toncit, and anyone else I'm missing...happy day!

Nice gathering of loyal Rose fans here. Perfect description of Rose, makes me feel I've met her. She's a rare one, an exotic bloom.

Was great to read about what led you down the Twilight/Robert/Kristen/Tom, roads to happiness!


Claire said...

Oi Syd!!

Knock it off, Rose is a married woman

jk jk

You are too adorable for words

dottie said...

Hi DK and CLAIR :)

angelica1 said...

Hi Everyone!

Great post Rose - I need to dognap Bear :)

Awww Syd,look at you getting all soppy about your future wife!!

Liza - If the guy in that pic turned up at my door,I'd happily let him write the whole of War and Peace on me in lvoe bites :)

DreamerKind said...

You've killed me, War & Peace!

dottie said...

Oops SYD, I was the one who used the curling iron excuse-not GROOVIE. I don't want her to get a bad rep. I'm sure she was way smarter than I was as a teen. :D

LIZA How is your mom's eye? Poor dear!

dottie said...

Hey ANGELICA!!! "War and Peace" eh?? Who knew you were such a fan of Russian lit? haha

How long before you leave for Brussels?

Groovie said...

Lol! Angelica, I'm sure u aren't the only one!

And Dottie- I was well-behaved, always...therefore no excuses were ever necessary. LOL! Heh

dottie said...

Yes GROOVIE, I've always had that perception of you - angelic! ;)

angelica1 said...

dottie - I have very eclectic tastes in everything :)

Groovie said...

Dottie- "angelic" lol!!! I can say that word has never been used to describe me.. Hahahahahaha!
I do refer to myself as the golden child though to my parents, cuz I know I had zero drama & my sisters sure as hell don't lol!
See its all part of my clever scheme, I was the perfect kid, thus I wasn't "watched" which resulted in me being able to do whatever the hell I wanted, always!

LJ said...

Hi DK and Angelica,

Ha...loved the War & Peace comment Angelica.

Dottie my mum still has a black eye but its fading, you couldn't see it at all on the day with a lot of concealer and more eye make up than usual!

Aww Angelica lucky you going to Brussels. I really want to go to Bruges for a weekend soon.

dottie said...

LIZA, I saw a pic you posted of the bride and groom. Her dress was so gorgeous! I'm glad that at least in the pics your mom's black eye won't be noticeable.

GROOVIE, That was a good plan! Wish I had thought of it.

DK, I hope your move is going smoothly.

Kay said...

Rose, I hope you know I was only teasing you about #6 in a super-secret Roseland decoder ring, invisible ink, olives and tomes sort of way.....

Hi Dottie, Angelica, DK, MSCL, Toncit, and Claire - now I really do have to run. ;)

angelica1 said...

Liza -c We'll be going to Bruges while we're there. I'm glad your mum managed to cover up the black eye :)

Groovie - My approach was to always tell the truth about where I was going...just not necessarily mention everyone who'd be there!

Freddie said...

Hi all,

I'm just ducking my head in between appointments. I just wanted to say hello. I hope everyone is well.

I'll try to catch up with everyone later. Stay well.

dottie said...

Hi Fredster! Hope you are having a good day.

Rosey said...

Lovely post Rose. Rob, Kristen and Bear are certainly the best to come out of Twilight. They have enriched all our lives I think. Love Syd's list on the lovely things about Rose. All too true I believe.

DreamerKind said...

The packing/move goes much more smoothly when I'm laughing, and having a merry time, like now. Thanks for the fun!
Going to have the neck cracked soon, so must away.

Bye for now, to all of you so clever, and got away with it, lovelies, here on Roseland.

Chow, Syd. Happy woo!


Jacks said...

On the look out for transgender types right now! The guy plays a werewolf in True Blood.

PL said...

Just popping in for a quick hello.

dottie and Liza,

Just a few weeks ago I had an episode with the love machine curling iron. I saw my doctor a few days later and she was complimenting me on my longer hairstyle. She then glanced at my neck and said, I see Mr PL likes it too. I didn't understand what she meant at first. Anyway, even a doctor can't tell the difference.

Syd said...

For the record, I believe Liza and the curling iron episode. I just wish she would stop hitting her mum...what kind of way is that for a daughter to treat her sweet mother?

Who really like that whole love bite/hickey thing anyway? Once you are over the age of 15 its a bit odd I think. I prefer to just slap a big old "MINE" on a woman's forehead in permanent ink. Much easier to see.

I have to go but I hope you all have a lovely weekend.

LJ said...

Haha Syd you are so cute.

Bye love, it was really great to bump into you.


Melinda said...

Happy Tuesday! Great post Rose. Your dog is beautiful. Lots of delish pictures too!

Something I get a kick out of in this fandom is when something good comes out. The shouty caps go full force on twitter and I just smile at all the cute excitement.

Syd- very sweet sentiments about your friend Rose. She is pretty darn great from what I can tell.

Hope everyone is having a great start to the week! Gotta jet to the store to pick up the stuff I need for dinner.

LJ said...

Hi PL, glad its not just me :)

Syd said...

Should I correct all the things I misspelled in my post to Rose? You all believe already I am an idiot so I think I will let it alone.

Sorry Rose, hope you can decipher it. Advise=advice and so on...

angelica1 said...

PL, Liza - I had a burn from my straighteners right across my forehead last winter when it was really cold.It was SO painful when I went outside! I have also been known to sit on them and once managed to drop them down the front of my bathrobe - that was particularly painful

PL said...


Down the front of your robe? I bet you had some explaining to do.

angelica1 said...

Syd - I can assure youI will take my straighteners to the very first person who calls you an idiot!!

dottie said...


Funny story, PL. :D

Bye SYD. It's always fun when you pop in.

katy said...

Hi Rose,

LOVE this post!! and you have beautiful dog!

Though, I think Tom has a sexy accent, I have to say Rob accent is the one that makes me all swoony and melty, and with all do respect...very much like that porfile pic of him. 'Why so gorgeous Robert?'

Again...I absoluty LOVE that banner!!

AWW, Syd, you are adorable, the 10 things you love about Rose are so sweet!!

Hi, Liza, Freddie, Claire, Dottie, Groovie, Angelica, Dreamer, Kay, Melinda, Penny, Toncit, Mysocalledlife, Rosey.

Hope you are all having a wonderful day.

Take care and be happy

LJ said...

Haha Angelica! brilliant.

Ok I'm out too...just also wanted to add I'm so sad about Amy Winehouse. I was a huge fan of her music, such an amazing lyricist.

Anyway....this is one of my favourite songs.


Catch you all soon.


DreamerKind said...

You an idiot? I'd as soon call myself a wit! You're a trip, on gossamer wings.
Just thought "advise" was the proper English way to use it, so you can always claim that, if needed. Proper, on Roseland, ain't necessarily so.
Why am I still here? Plans changed and now it's time for some crispy white wine! Back to packing, so might as well be "good to go".

DreamerKind said...

Fab song link of Amy. Yes, gone too soon, but never forgotten.


Fiorels said...

Hekki everyobe,
thanks Rose!
One of my favourite posts! I love when they are like this..
ans Syd's list is so sweet lol I don't know you that much, well, not at all actually but seeing what you do here is enough to know you're a special person :)

Liza, sorry i'm late to the party but congrats to your brother and wife :)

Hello back to you, wherever we are, Miss Inspiration.

Claire said...


Yes I did see the situation with Nikki and the fliers.

The girl never ceases to amaze me. If it was anybody else I would find it cute, but with her there seems to be an ulterior motive behind almost everything. I mean announcing your 'engagement' at the MTV Movie Awards? That is the definition of class right there.

Fiorels said...

Hello Smitty!

Oh the Nikki Reed thing.. *shakes head*
wonder how may will actually get in a row to actually have an autograph..?

LOL the story is funny actually! Well maybe it wouldnt be funny if she was a good person but since she's horrible then i guess karma made its own job lol

which leads me, on a kinda different and trivial note, to not be able to share a good word for Amy Winehouse..
I know people who were born and doomed to stay on a wheel-chair, i know people ill with multiple sclerosis, i know people fighting everyday for life..
and she just wasted with her hands...
I'm sorry she was so young and maybe needed help or something..
but she had a life and she lost it by herself..

Anyway sorry for the disgression.

angelica1 said...

Smitty - Thats' hilarious. I don't even feel bad for laughing :)

Yeah, I'm assuming he grew a beard to stop her stubble from scratching him...

Fiorels said...

Hello dear!
I know i'm missing a lot.. i am seriously freaking out haha
last exam went bad haha but i have another one and am studying basicallt also at night ;/

how are you??
any big news here?

LJ said...

Ok I was going but I would just like to point out that although Smittys story refers to a hickey.....is it not about me....I may have burned my neck but definitely did not burn my boobs!

Is her NR's boyfriend gay and shes really his beard? she just gets more and more ridiculous.


Groovie said...

That is an excellent story! And I can think of quite a few reasons she likes BEARDS! Lol!

Oh btw, had an animal style last night, twas delicious!
Hope u are well!

Hi katy, claire, freddie, dk & fio!

Claire said...

Also, the fact that you could only have her autograph if you promised to buy a copy of his album.

Bitch please, not many people would want your fucking autograph even if they didn't have to buy his album

angelica1 said...

Liza - I think she's hoping he'll make her relevant for 5 minutes but he's even tackier than she is

Fiorels said...

Claire- lol
indeed i think i would literally pull back the paper if i'd ever happen to see her in front of me lol

hello groovie, angelica, liza
and who else is here?

katy said...

WAVES Smitty, thats is hilarious...thanks for the laughs

DreamerKind said...

We're making big news here, right now!
You'll do alright on your exams overall, maybe even outstanding, as you are an "A" student, don't forget that.

You are an excellent source for news of this ironical kind, too, and I appreciate your posts.

Quote: B.A. Baracus:
"I pity the fool who goes out tryin' a' take over da world, then runs home cryin' to his momma!"

Fiorels said...

DK- lol you always say that but i'm so sorry that i'm always missing all the comments here cause of those fucking books..

any plans you have for the summer?

Claire said...

My favourite Nikki moment was at the Eclipse premiere when she tried to approach Rob while he was signing autographs (she was obviously looking for a photo op).

Stephanie spots her making her way over and she and a bodyguard proceed to block her from getting to Rob, who is oblivious to the whole situation.

She looks absolutely mortified LOL. And the fact she was dressed like a bird just added more comedy value to an already hysterical situation.

DreamerKind said...

Of course, we all knew you could not, would not, be that person Smitty described-and to which my quote would, could and does apply.

LJ said...

Thanks Fiorels for your good wishes for my brother.

We will have to agree to disagree on Amy Winehouse, I just don't see why there has to be a choice of who to feel sad for. I would like to think my heart can stretch big enough to feeling this for anyone, whatever their situation.

But that of course is just my opinion.

Ok I really promise I'm going now!

Take care everyone,


Groovie said...

speaking of nikki's fiancé dude, some fan had him sign a new moon dvd (why?? No fucking clue) and he wrote "Team Jacob!" Next to his signature
Wtf?! LOL!
That's just...childish & petty, and totally lame

Claire said...

@ Groovie

Childish, petty and lame ?

Nikki must be rubbing off on the guy

angelica1 said...

Liza - I agree with you about Amy Winehouse.She needed compassion,not condemnation. Good night :)

Fiorels said...

That's also a good point Liza...

gonna take a shower, be back in a few :)

angelica1 said...

Groovie - I suppose I can't entirely blame him for not being Team Edward. After all, Rob took home first prize and he ends up with everyone's leftovers

DreamerKind said...

You just might have some purpose behind all of this hard work of studying, making vids, leaving comments, and there is brilliance to that. Persistence pays in all ways.

Yes, of course, I will always say that, that's my job as Fairy God Mother and you're one of my "adopted" brood, sillybilly.

Big plans for my summer, always, and they appear without any effort on my part, life happens.
Dressed like a bird! Yes, I forgot that...so funny, so heartbreakingly sad. A child, adrift in so many ways, mean, spiteful and so lost. She needs to make different choices.

DreamerKind said...

Ah, yes, there but for the grace of G, go I. Bye.

Ditto what you said.

re: Amy Winehouse

At the end of the day addict's can be offered all the help they want, but they have to want to help themselves. It's up to them and only them to kick their addiction.

It's an absolute tragedy what happened to her. Just 27 yrs old and so talented. I guess that's what fame can do to some people, and I think others need to realise that famous people are human too and are not immune to everyday problems and struggles.

I watched some news coverage of her family visiting a gathering where people have left tributes near their home, I hope that brought them some comfort seeing how much love a lot of people had for her.

Not only was it a waste of ridiculous music talent but it was a waste of life, period.

For Our Darlin' Cynical Rose

It Ain't Necessarily So

Aretha Franklin:

It ain't necessarily so
It ain't necessarily so

The things that you're liable
To read in the Bible,
It ain't necessarily so.

Now David was small
But oh my
Little David was small

But oh my
He fought big Goliath
Who lay down and dieth
David was small but oh my

To get into heaven
Don't snap for a seven
Live clean
Forget your faults

I take the gospel
Whenever it's possible
But with a grain of salt

Oh Jonah he lived in a whale
Oh Jonah he lived in a whale
He made his home
In that fishes abdomen
Oh Jonah he lived in a whale

Methuselah lived 900 years
Methuselah lived 900 years
Who calls that livin'
When no gal will give in
To no man what's 900 years

It ain't necessarily so
It ain't necessarily so
The things that you're liable
To read in the Bible,
It ain't necessarily so.

Thank you/differentgail

dottie said...

SMITTY, You just made my day w/that story! bahahaha!!!

Fiorels said...

Claire- agree with that!
they can have all the help they receive but it's always their choice at the end to live or not..
and of course for me it's unconceivable that it happened to her just as it would have been if it happened to any other person in the world..
people die everyday..

her own mother said it was just matter of time..
i feel sorry for them cause there's a definition for those who lose parents and it's "orphan"; yet there's no one for those who has lost children...
it's unnatural.

DK - so you basically have a great summer without doing nothing..? lol

and thanks so much for your support! really appreciated!

I remember that bit of Nikki at the Eclipse premiere lmao!
also i remember thinking she had "deplumed" an ostrich wearing that dress lol

sjjw said...

HI everyone! What a wonderful post. I love the positive. I have met so many wonderful supportive people on here, as well as twitter. While my husband worries the people I "talk" to are really convicts in prison waiting to rape and pillage our family (he's a worrier) I am careful and have met awesome folk like all of you! And to think, it was our obsession w/ Rob (in a good way) that brought us all together!

And for those who have been kind in worrying, my dog Mollie seems a bit better. I appreciate all the kind thoughts and well-wishes!

Off to real life...ciao!

dottie said...

LJ, Nobody would ever think that story was about YOU, darling girl!

About NR and her beard(ed) dude - I happened to be watching American Idol the night she met him & I called it! I told my hubby that she is going to get her claws into him, just you wait. It made my cold, black heart happy that he was booted off before she got the chance to sit in the audience and gaze adoringly at him on national TV whilst he sang. She was stuck in Vancouver working, I suppose. Anyway, I normally don't revel in another person's misery but in this case I can't help myself! LOL

DreamerKind said...

You SO get me, dear one!

Good news about Mollie. Tell hubby I won't rest until I meet him-stalker DK! Have a fine time in real life.

Claire said...

@ dottie

Me neither PMSL

She brings it on herself with her jealousy ridden remarks.

Annie said...

Good evening everybody.

Re; Amy Winehouse; Russell Brand wrote such a touching tribute to her on his blog, it's worth a read.

As for Nikki Reed: The less said about that young woman the better.
Also, if her fiancee is going to be that petty then they deserve each other!
Had hoped that her finding love would have matured her a bit. It seems as if it has not.

Super RN Gas Passer said...

Good Evening ROSE and ROSELANDERS...

ROSE...One of your finest posts!!!...in my humble opinion..I read Salems Lot..it was a great book. I think I will see if I can download it on my kindle and read it again!!! ROSE...I wish you would post a pic of yourself...from the front...heh...I believe "everything" SYD says about you!! Red is my favorite color and I wish I had a grandma Rose to cook all that good food for me...:)

SMITTY...I laughed my head OFF when I read your post...Just suffice it to say...desperate people do "desperate" things...like getting engaged to people to attempt to prove that they are OVER being dumped by a certain handsome(insanely gorgeous...Im trying to find the best word..wonderful...funny...sweetest..man...maybe on the earth..that looks at a certain woman:)..like NO MAN HAS EVER LOOKED at a woman in all of time....No Im not exaggerating)...and she will never have any man look at her like that and SHE CANT STAND IT)...:(

Damn..those curling irons!!!!!

Barbara Fenwick said...

Oh Rose, I have missed you. I lost my internet 2 weeks ago due to lightning, so have been out of touch. I have felt lost and wondering what I have missed. I loved your blog, and what RoBsessed did for you, you did for me. The day I found your blog saved my life. Before, I felt lost and all along, wondering if I was going crazy. It felt wonderful to find out there were like-minded people. I love Robert and Kristen, they make me so happy just seeing them happy. Thank you so much. Your blog is the only websight I visit now so I don't see any of the negative. We know the negative is not true...the happy couple with Bear is the real thing. Thank you.

Fiorels said...

sjjw - dont really know what happened to Mollie but am glad she's better!

lol at your hubby!
my mom is the same, always like "So these peopel you talk to are all Twilight fans??" and then she gives that look like she has a degenerate daughter or whatever.. lol

DK- you are easy to get!

DreamerKind said...

Tell it like it is, babe!

Fiorels said...

Anyway I was watching the CC press and literally lmao at the "Breakfast time" comment by Rob! hahaha
what was that??

Groovie said...

I wouldn't say nikki "found love" more like she found a convenient way to continue her famewhore ways!

If she was in love & it was important to her, she would take a leaf out of Rob & Kristen's book and keep what's important, private. I bet you'll never see them announce an engagement/wedding on a red carpet!

She is the poster child for a manipulative, famewhoring bitch!

Fiorels said...

Groovie- ditto!
come on, she could never take a lesson from rob and kristen...
it's her nature to be like this..

dottie said...

SJ - My son teases me about my online friends. He says you all are dirty old men who will one day kidnap me. haha
So happy about Mollie!
OK Why is DK stalking your hubby? Inquiring minds want to know???

SUPER - How can you dump something you never picked up to begin with??? ;) Hope you are well.

Hi Fio and Annie.

I have been online far too much today.

Annie said...

Hi Groovie: Yes, I agree but I was trying to give said manipulative, famewhoring bitch the benefit of the doubt.

Fiorels said...

hello super, barbare and dottie :)

dottie said...

Welcome back Barbara F. Roseland just isn't the same without your sweet and thoughtful posts.

katy said...

Groovie, Ditto!!!

DreamerKind said...

I've been online too longer today, myself but apparently self-control isn't my forte.
Was joking to SJ about her hubs fears about cyber friends, that's what I meant.

Tell your son, I'm planning to kidnap you, as soon as we meet up somewhere. Watch out local bars and brew pubs, right?

dottie said...

DK - OK now I get it! I'm a bit slow today. Is that YOU parked outside my house in the black van???

DreamerKind said...

Simple Simon says: DK jump and DK says?

So funny, little hunny.

You were missed. Tonight I am planning to do a shout out for those who have gone missing for a while. (You know who you are, save me some time and just pop in, and be counted.)

Nice to know that you are around, and that you found what you needed here from Rose, along with the rest of us. Lucky us!

DreamerKind said...

Does the van have a Heineken sign painted on it?

Super RN Gas Passer said...


Hahaha DOTTIE..You made a great point!

Im so hyped up over Roses post today and I need to revisit some of these other vampire books and shows...I wonder if Rose ever watch Dark Shadows...that was my first vampire crush, Barnabas Collins!!!!

PL...I meant to tell you that season 2 of True Blood is way better than season 1...

LJ and ANGELICA..Dont know if you are still around but I enjoyed your comments very much:)

Annie said...

Hello all! :)

Fiorels said...

DK- wish i had fantasy enough to elaborate an answer in rhyme but am tired and off to bed so I guess I'll make it another time!

Oh look, i did it! lol

have a great day you all!
was nice talking to you tonight ^^

sjjw said...

Hey all! Hubby changed his mind a bit when a twitter friend got my son an interview at a college he loved and took us to lunch! The power of the internet....

We are going to San Francisco in a few weeks. He's not minding relying on another twitter friend who lives there for advice and restaurant rec's! lol

Thanks again for the well-wishes for Mollie!

Super RN Gas Passer said...

Good Night FIO...sleep well!

HI ANNIE...We just had a downpour of rain...temp has dropped to 78..How was the heat up there today?

Brewski said...

Hello fellow Roselanders!

@Smitty LMFAO! I seriously cannot stop laughing at your stories. God, is there anything more repulsive than being FAKE? YUCK! Promise you will NEVER change girl, cause you are a TRUE one of a kind!

@Syd, we've never met here but you're tribute to Rose was touching and we can tell it comes from your heart! Thanks for sharing.

I'm sure we all could come up with our top 10 list for our good friend Rose, but I'm going to sum up mine with one word. AMAZING! Thanks for being you Rose. You're a one of a kind and definately a bright ray of needed sunshine! Cheers!

Smitty said...

Oops that's YOUR tribute not you're! Spelling is so overrated! lol

Super RN Gas Passer said...

SJJW..The Internet has certainly changed the world. Speaking of contacts, I guess it is a common occurence,one of our OR nurses married a man she met through a dating website..her third trip to the altar..I asked her today if the third time was the charm...she said YES..Hahaha

Fiorels said...

Smitty- i'm sure here we all know the lack, better saying complete absence, of Rob's interest in Nikki..
i dont think anyone here ever thought the opposite lol
Rob had zero interest in her back than and it's like under zero now..

Annie said...

Ahhh Super......Yesterday started our break from this opppresive weather. A bit of rain yesterday and another lovely day today.

I am no longer wilting!

Super RN Gas Passer said...

SMITTY...I hear you! Thanks..now we know....THE REST OF THE STORY:)

I bet that light bulb DID hurt...ouch!

Groovie said...

Negative interest in her, too right! His actions speak for themselves.

Smitty added a great adjective to what I said earlier, "soulless"

Soulless, manipulative, famewhoring bitch

DreamerKind said...

For Smitty Clear As Glass & Loved Just As Hard

Tell It Like It Is

Little Willie John:

I'll love you, darling
For a hundred years
And my falling tears
Tell it like it is

Take my hand
Girl and walk with me
Make my soul
Feel heavenly

I just can't help it
Pretty baby
All my falling tears
Tell it like it is

I'm your soldier
Yes, I'm your dream
And I'll be your little darling
Just treat me tenderly

Cause ever since I laid eyes
On you baby
My falling tears
Tell you like it is

The more I see you
The more I want you
Then my eyes ?
Into a flame

I sure can't have you
Yes, and be digging my grave, too
If I go crazy
You'll be the blame

Dry my tears
And hush my fears
Be my little darlin
Yeah, for a hundred years

Cause I just can't do without you
All my falling tears
Tell it like is

Thank you/melkorzeblack

Claire said...


On Rob and Nikki

He's already shown he has IMPECCABLE taste

Why settle for bacon when you've got steak ;) LOL

Annie said...

Gosh, did I seriously spell "oppresive" with 3 "P's"...sorry!

Claire said...



The amount of spelling errors I make on here people reading my post's must think I'm illiterate

angelica1 said...

Smitty - So glad you cleared that particular piece of absolute BS up!

Groovie said...

Claire- spot on!
However "bacon" is too generous. Lots of people love bacon and think its delicious...
Dog food vs steak is more apt!

dottie said...

SMITTY- I can understand why that would be a pet peeve, especially since there are so many false stories floating around. Just from the little bit I've read and seen, I've always assumed it was exactly the way you described. It's pretty easy to see that Rob had no interest in anyone but Kristen. Nikki's motives are pretty obvious as well.

Annie said...

@Claire :)
It's mortfying when you look back at it afterwards.
Blogger does not let you correct once you hit that enter button!

Claire said...


It always seems to be simple words with me.


You're right

Bacon is too good for her, how about spam??

Claire said...


Me too

That girl is as transparent as they come.

Lets be straight though. Who would you go for? Kristen or Nikki? Not much of a contest is it?

A beautiful, talented, smart woman? Or Nikki Reed?

DreamerKind said...

Knew you would do it, trickster! Sleep well.

Sorry, didn't see you. Hello!

Some words need lots of "p's" or other letters to really make their point and empathize it, empathetically.

We don't sweat anything here on Roseland, except a lack of things.

There's so much more irony in your bacon statement, if you were referring to Paul Newman's, but it is not a happy story, nor is this one for NR.

But, we are all happy on Rose's Land, and so is Kristen & Le Rob, and that's why we are here.

Annie said...

LOL..........Oh good Lord! I did it again!
I think I just covered my spelling errors for the next month!

dottie said...

SJ, Just noticed that you are going to SF. One of my FAVORITE places ever! When we lived in CA we spent lots of time there and north of SF in Marin Co. It's just gorgeous. Can you tell I'm a teensy bit jealous? ;) It will be a nice break from the heat. Hope you have fun!

Hello there DK! :)

Rose said...

Syd and Smitty...

1. Syd... I loved your 10 things... but being your friend is the easiest thing in the world. I could say more... but you already know.

I absolutely adore you.

This should be interesting.

katy said...

Smitty, I never thought that Rob had any interest in Nikki, always seen things the way you described...Rob beeing the kind person that he is, was being nice and Nikki beeing the Famewhore that she is, was just using him.

DreamerKind said...

"Like sand in an hourglass, so are the days of our lives." Remember, that?

DK...Hahaha...Speaking of Days of Our Lives....I am currently reading an autobiography that Alison Sweeney(Sami)and also (Biggest Loser)wrote several years ago.. She has been in front of the camera since she was 4...she started with commercials...seems like a really nice girl.

"She's totally committed to major independance, but she's a lady through and through. She gives them quite a battle. All that they can handle. She'll bruise some she'll hurt some too. But oh, they love to watch her strut. Oh they do respect her but. They love to watch her strut!" Cheers!

Huey Lewis & The News:

We've had some fun, and yes we've had our ups and downs
Been down that rocky road, but here we are, still around

We thought about someone else, but neither one took the bait
We thought about breaking up, but now we know it's much too late

We are bound by all the rest
Like the same phone number
All the same friends
And the same address

Yes, it's true, (yes it's true)
I am happy to be stuck with you
Yes, it's true, (yes it's true)

I'm so happy to be stuck with you
'Cause I can see, (I can see)
That you're happy to be stuck
With me

Thank you/cray0752

Hi ladies!

And Smitty... 5 or 10 is on the low side. HAHAHAHA!

(But I love it)

Brewski said...

@Smitty, LMAO envisioning you doing your best Donald Trump signature cobra move YOUR FIRED! LOL If only it were that easy for us fans to make the bad go away. I'd wave my magic wand and "poof"

Hey Rose, is it cocktail time yet? Cheers!

Haha SMITTY.... I think its been taken care of:)

DreamerKind said...

Aww, that's so hard...may I play it in their honor, on my late night shift? You tell me, yea or nay.

Have a glass of chilled white and Super will sweep the floor clean and shiny.

We are on the same page...so cheers to you and us.

We worry a little about you, but Syd takes the cake. As long as I read, that you are enjoying the fruit of the vine, I know you're fine. <3

dottie said...

Smitty, You made a lot of great points. No need to be sorry at all. It's always nice to get to chat w/you. :)
Take care!

Super RN Gas Passer said...

SMITTY..Please come back soon. I promise to be good next time:)

Brewski said...

@Claire my deepest sympathies to you for your loss. I can appreciate how you feel. Both of my folks are gone too. I love Against the Wind. Not to get all sappy but it really makes me think of how life is truly a crazy journey and you have to keep your eye on the bigger picture yet somehow allow yourself to just live in the moment! Cheers!

dottie said...

Super, You are funny :) It's so much fun here and we get a little too comfortable sometimes. hee hee

What is that grandboy of yours up to these days? I'm sure he is brilliant. We already know he is beautiful!

DreamerKind said...

Anyone would want your bf, since he is a famous explorer of the North or South Poles, and has written volumes of scientific studies dealing with the melting of the polar ice caps. Not everyone can have a "brainy" bf, like yours, so concerned with global warming, etc.

Claire said...


A big YES!!!

That was the only song I listened to for a couple of months after we lost them.

My Dad died of cancer in late January and my Mum passed away 3 weeks later. In a way I'm glad they weren't apart too long. They met each other when my Mum was 19 and Dad was 23, got married 2 years later and spent the rest of their lives together.

I'd love it if you added that song to your lyrics list. I've just put it on now actually.

Annie said...

Please accept my condolences.

Hi Rose and everyone else,

Rose, in my list, your blog is definitely one of the best things about this fandom :)
You always express perfectly what I think!

And of course I agree with everyone here regarding *that* girl...
Everything about her sounds fake and dishonest. And please (PLEASE!) can someone tell her to stop smiling and laughing hysterically all the time like an idiot. It makes her look... like an idiot! It's really annoying, lol.

Gruff: Tongue In Cheek For The Scientist:
(Am not changing one word)

So Nice So Smart (Juno Movie):

I was quiet as a mouse
when i snuck into your house
and took roofies with your spouse
in a nit and out a louse

and lice are lousy all the time
they suck your blood drink your wine
say shut up and quit your crying
give it time and you'll be fine

you're so nice and you're so smart
you're such a good friend i have to break your heart

tell you that i love you then i'll tear your world apart
just pretend i didn't tear your world apart

i like boys with strong convictions
and convicts with perfect diction
underdogs with good intentions
amputees with stamp collections

plywood skinboards ride the ocean
salty noses suntan lotion
always seriously joking
and rambunctiously soft-spoken

i like boys that like their mothers
and i have a thing for brothers
but they always wait til we're under the covers
to say i'm sure glad we're not lovers

you're so nice and you're so smart
you're such a good friend i have to break our heart
tell you that i love you then i'll tear your world apart
just pretend i didn't tear your world apart

I'll Be Loving You Always

Stevie Wonder:

As around the sun the earth knows she's revolving
And the rosebuds know to bloom in early May

Just as hate knows love's the cure
You can rest your mind assure
That I'll be loving you always

As now can't reveal the mystery of tomorrow
But in passing will grow older every day

Just as all that's born is new
You know what I say is true
That I'll be loving you always

(Until the rainbow burns the stars out in the sky)
(Until the ocean covers every mountain high)
(Until the dolphin flies and parrots live at sea)
(Until we dream of life and life becomes a dream)

Did you know that true love asks for nothing
No no her acceptance is the way we pay

Did you know that life has given love a guarantee
To last through forever and another day

Just as time knew to move on since the beginning
And the seasons know exactly when to change

Just as kindness knows no shame
Know through all your joy and pain
That I'll be loving you always

As today I know I'm living
But tomorrow could make me the past
But that I mustn't fear

For I'll know deep in my mind
The love of me I've left behind
'Cause I'll be loving you always

(Until the day is night and night becomes the day)
(Until the trees and seas just up and fly away)

(Until the day that eight times eight times eight is four)
(Until the day that is the day that are no more)
Did you know you're loved by somebody
(Until the day the earth starts turnin' right to left)

(Until the earth just for the sun denies itself)
I'll be lovin you forever
(Until dear mother nature says her work is through)

(Until the day that you are me and I am you)
(Until the rainbow burns the stars out in the sky
Until the ocean severs every mountain high)
Always mm mm

We all know sometimes life hates and troubles
Can make you wish you were born in another time and space

But you can bet your lifetimes that and twice it's double
That God knew exactly where he wanted you to be placed

So make sure when you say you're in it, but not of it
You're not helpin' to make this earth
A place sometimes called hell

Change your words into truths
And then change that truth into love
And maybe our children's grandchildren

And their great grandchildren will tell
I'll be loving you until the rainbow burns the stars out in the sky

Thank you/MrSeban

Awww, looks like I missed a fun nite with Syd & Smitty... hope you're both well!!

Rose, such a sweet post...and as funny as David Letterman's top 10! :) Of course, Syd's giving you a run for your money in the list competition...

DK: great playlist recently... thanks for all you do to entertain us, FGM. Wishing you great success in packing/moving this week.

Super: your avi with the grandbaby...SO SWEET!!

sjjw: I promise I will neither stalk nor kidnap you :) As for myself being kidnapped, I know that he'd bring me back as soon as he realized I never stop talking! (Well, according to my Mom when I was a kid!)

Liza: sooo glad to hear Mother Nature cooperated for your bro's wedding (although I missed the info on Mom's black eye, and the hickey's???) Sounds like a great wedding! lol

Special hello's to my lovely friends in Roseland...

PS Rose, lovin' the pic of your beautiful German Shepherd (I have 2 dachshunds who think they're shepherds, must be a German thing!)

olivia said...

Dear Rose and everyone,

Just got in and see that I missed all y'all and your comments from this afternoon and evening.

First of all, Rose, loved your post today. Fabulous 10 good things and super pics to go along and illustrate!

Hooray for Syd's reply of 10 reasons to love Rose. Syd, you are very kind and caring friend to Rose.

So happy, Liza, that the wedding was wonderful and that the day was gorgeous and sunny.

Barbara, glad to see you are back with us.

Have a lovely night. Hugs for y'all.
Hugs for Smitty, Gruff, and Syd.

DreamerKind said...

I am a talky, talker, talking all of the time, like you. How great we would get along in person, and how time would fly. I knew I liked you from the get go.

Steph, what a wit you are, my bud. What a sum up! Are you a lawyer?

I agree, werewolves are sexy. What are a few scars on your bod, if well hidden, and well made?

And, I miss my grandmother, too, cause we always had ice cream at her place, and a nice hot bath in Tide detergent, to get rid of the whatever, that we might have gotten before we got there.

Birdie said...

Damn,I hate when that job of mine gets in the way of a little fun. So good to see so many here today and even a visit from Rose, Smitty and Syd!
Loved the post full of "good" things. Were you blushing today,Rose? Those were some mighty fine words from Mr.Syd. You have obviously touched many of us with your words and wit. Of course,all brought about from Twilight,Robert and Kristen. It's been a great ride and it ain't over yet!
Dk,are you getting any work done?

ADD said...

It's great to focus on the good things. Loved the list.

I don't know if any norwegians read this blog but I'd like to say that my thoughts and prayers are with Norway. I've been there twice and fell in love with it. It's an amazing country. Oslove!

DreamerKind said...

If by work you mean packing, well, yes and no. Yes, I am sorting clothes again. No, I am not packing anything.

Well, I am packing away a delicious French white wine (bye, bye) and now some great coffee, but I forgot which I bought (boo hoo).

Feeling a bit like Super, doing so much laundry, everyday, before I have to go to a central laundry room, where I'll have to talk to everyone in sight, while my clothes get clean. (Thumbs up)

Makes sense now, to do all of the bedspreads, blankets, sheets, throws, and such, while I have those sock-eating, hoarding machines, that I have bitched about in past comments.

Then, as you say, it's been a lovely day on Roseland, with the teams batting a thousand for us.

Fiorels Found This-I Snapped It

Perfect Two


You can be the peanut butter to my jelly
You can be the butterflies I feel in my belly

You can be the captain and I can be your first mate
You can be the chills that I feel on our first date

You can be the hero and I can be your side kick
You can be the tear that I cry if we ever split

You can be the rain from the cloud when it's stormin'
Or you can be the sun when it shines in the mornin'

Don't know if I could ever be
Without you cause boy you complete me
And in time I know that we'll both see
That we're all we need

Cause you're the apple to my pie
You're the straw to my berry
You're the smoke to my high
And you're the one I wanna marry

Cause your the one for me (for me)
And I'm the one for you (for you)
You take the both of us (of us)
And we're the perfect two

We're the perfect two
We're the perfect two
Baby me and you
We're the perfect two

You can be the prince and I can be your princess
You can be the sweet tooth and I can be the dentist

You can be the shoes and I can be the laces
You can be the heart that I spill on the pages

You can be the vodka and I can be the chaser
You can be the pencil and I can be the paper

You can be as cold as the winter weather
But I don't care as long as we're together

Don't know if I could ever be
Without you cause boy you complete me
And in time I know that we'll both see
That we're all we need

Cause you're the apple to my pie
You're the straw to my berry
You're the smoke to my high
And you're the one I wanna marry

Cause your the one for me (for me)
And I'm the one for you (for you)
You take the both of us (of us)
And we're the perfect two

We're the perfect two
We're the perfect two
Baby me and you
We're the perfect two

You know that I'll never doubt ya
And you know that I think about ya
And you know I can't live without ya

I love the way that you smile
And maybe in just a while
I can see me walk down the aisle

Cause you're the apple to my pie
You're the straw to my berry
You're the smoke to my high
And you're the one I wanna marry

Cause your the one for me (for me)
And I'm the one for you (for you)
You take the both of us (of us)
And we're the perfect two

We're the perfect two
We're the perfect two
Baby me and you
We're the perfect two
baaabyyy meee andd yooooooooou

Thank you/JaySuhLee

For Claire & Brewski-Now They Are The Wind

Against The Wind

Bob Seger:

It seems like yesterday
But it was long ago
Janey was lovely, she was the queen of my nights

There in the darkness with the radio playlng low
And the secrets that we shared
The mountains that we moved

Caught like a wildfire out of control
Till there was nothing left to burn and nothing left to prove

And I remember what she said to me
How she swore that it never would end
I remember how she held me oh so tight
Wish I didn't know now what I didn't know then

Against the wind
We were runnin' against the wind
We were young and strong, we were runnin'
against the wind

And the years rolled slowly past
And I found myself alone
Surrounded bv strangers I thought were my friends
I found myself further and further from my home

And I guess I lost my way
There were oh so many roads
I was living to run and running to live

Never worried about paying or even how much I owed
Moving eight miles a minute for months at a time
Breaking all of the rules that would bend

I began to find myself searchin'
Searching for shelter again and again
Against the wind
A little something against the wind
I found myself seeking shelter against the wind

Well those drifters days are past me now
I've got so much more to think about
Deadlines and commitments
What to leave in, what to leave out

Against the wind
I'm still runnin' against the wind
Well I'm older now and still
Against the wind

Thank you/jimmej955

I'm proud of my achievements tonight!

I am still purging my clothes closet, and have cut myself some cute bangs, like I used to have. (See Betty avi)

Also, bought a lighter hair color and will rejoin the blond part of the human race. (Where I belong, like Betty, see avi!)

Maybe, more songs will demand their say later tonight, but for now, I'm dangling.

It's the old, skip to my loo, my darlings.


DreamerKind said...

Told Ya-Don't Dangle!

The Dangling Conversation

Simon & Garfunkel-Live NYC 1967:

It's a still life watercolor
Of a now late afternoon
As the sun shines through the curtain lace
And shadows wash the room

And we sit and drink our coffee
Couched in our indifference
Like shells upon the shore
You can hear the ocean roar

In the dangling conversation
And the superficial sighs
The borders of our lives

And you read your Emily Dickinson
And I my Robert Frost
And we note our place with bookmarkers
That measure what we've lost

Like a poem poorly written
We are verses out of rhythm
Couplets out of rhyme
In syncopated time.

And the dangling conversation
And the superficial sighs
Are the borders of our lives

Yes we speak of things that matter
With words that must be said
Can analysis be worthwhile?
Is the theatre really dead?

And how the room has softly faded
And I only kiss your shadow
I cannot feel your hand
You're a stranger now unto me

Lost in the dangling conversation
And the superficial sighs
In the borders of our lives

Thank you/mwebber69

Banish Fear To See Splendor

Sometimes When We Touch

Dan Hill:

You ask me if I love you
And I choke on my reply
I'd rather hurt you honestly
Than mislead you with a lie

And who am I to judge you
On what you say or do
I'm only just beginning
To see the real you

And sometimes when we touch
The honesty's too much
And I have to close my eyes
And hide

I wanna hold you till I die
Till we both break down and cry
I want to hold you
Till the fear in me subsides

Romance and all its strategy
Leaves me battling with my pride
But through the insecurity
Some tenderness survives

I'm just another writer
Still trapped within my truths
A hesitant prizefighter
Still trapped within my youth

At times I'd like to break you
And drive you to your knees
At times I'd like to break through
And hold you endlessly

At times I understand you
And I know how hard you've tried
I've watched
While love commands you
And I've watched love pass you by

At times I think we're drifters
Still searching for a friend
A brother or a sister
But then the passion flares again

And sometimes when we touch
The honesty's too much
And I have to close my eyes
And hide

I wanna hold you till I die
Till we both break down and cry
I want to hold you
Till the fear in me subsides

Thank you/danhillfan

Gonna miss you again, since my date is here, and demands I sleep now. Scandalous, I know it.

To sleep, perchance to dream...

Oh, Mr. Sandman, sends his love..

I see you posted Bob Seger

Thankyou :D

I hope you all have a productive day

Good Morning ROSELAND...ROSE...I downloaded the Salems Lot book...interested to see it is a special edition with a new foreward from the author and he wrote some additional short stories to go with it...

Hope said...

Rose...You were inspired with this TOP 10 list! However, I must say I enjoyed Syd's TOP 10 list even more. That was the sweetest!

And thanks for sharing a pic of your baby...somehow I knew you had to be a dog lover.

Liza...glad to hear your brother's wedding was perfect.

ADD said...

ITA ! One of the best things about Norway is its bright and beautiful people. Made me feel at home.

Super RN Gas Passer said...

Hi Everybody...I was just watching some of the Bill Condon interviews for Breaking Dawn...I am so impressed with the depth of understanding that he acheived with the whole saga and the actors. He was talking about how amazing ROB conveyed EDWARDS desperation to save Bella in the birth scene. I cannot begin to convey how excited I am to see the Breaking Dawn movies. Summit sure put the final book into the hands of an exceptional director!...and as a side comment, I hope Edward plays the piano come 11-18-11..Fingers crossed!!!

DreamerKind said...

Good Morning!

It's been a busy day and I'm truly tired. Wishing the best to you all, and dreamland is where I'm bound now.


Birdie said...

Good morning or good night, DK. Hope the packing is going well and you are getting closer to the big move! See you later!

Just saw a little longer version of The Cineplex interview. These two are so cute together. I do wish they would just show the whole interview without the editing. If Summit is smart they will do more of these before the movie comes out.

A wonderful day to all in Roseland!

Tigerlily said...

Hi all- have been so busy with RL lately & have missed coming here to visit ! Wonderful post Rose.. Perfect top 10!
I love that you love True Blood & VD too. One of my fav shows in the late 90's/ early noughties was Buffy!! That's where my love of vampire movies, books etc grew!!

Syd your top 10 was gorgeous.. I'm sure Rose thought so too.
Hope all is well with everyone.. Hoping to have more time soon to pop back in!

Hey Everyone!

Finally getting ready to head to the Cape. Kenzz, will you be there?

It's funny, you look forward all year to your week away and then you want it to be time to go but you really don't want to go because you know it will all be over in a snap. Don't know if that's clear but I know some of you know what I mean :)

Have a good day. I'm looking forward to Rose's next post!

Emilia said...

Lindsey said...

Love this post, Rose! I always enjoy reading what you have to say :)

Kenzz said...

Morning, IB! I know exactly what you mean...feels like we're wishing our days away sometimes :)

We're heading to Maine this weekend... my sis and fam are in from TN... we might be down to the Cape next weekend, though- when do you guys head home?

Good luck with the packing, and safe travels! Looks like you're in for a stretch of nice weather here.

Good morning to everyone in Roseland...hurray, the weekend's almost here!
