Kristen Stewart-- Rob is my boyfriend

How sweet is she?

You probably expected a different picture today.
You probably expected me to be laughing and giggling.
Well... I AM laughing and giggling.
How could I not be?

Kristen's GQ interview was put online last night.

The reactions were DELICIOUS.
Absolutely scrumptious.

Oh wait... I need to do something before I continue...

Fucking Twirl

So Kristen was quite talkative in her interview...
And for those of you who haven't seen it
(I know you all have, I just want to post it... shut up)
 I will give you the highlights...
(Thanks to Robstenation... go to their blog
if you want to read the whole article)

The day before, while at the GQ shoot, she had explained that she was looking forward to seeing more of the UK, as “my boyfriend is English”, although when I bring this up again the blood drains into her boots. “I never would have said that if I knew you were going to be interviewing me.”

The whole issue, if you don’t already know, has to do with whether or not she’s dating her Twilight co-star Robert Pattinson, the subject of which has seen more speculation than the origin of Barack Obama’s birth certificate. I tell her I’m surprised this is such an issue seeing as the evidence is already out there for all to see on the web - the photos, the stolen moments, the Christmas getaways...Yeah, I know it is,” she admits. “So much of my life is so easily googled. I mean, it’s like, come on guys, it’s so obvious!” Her mood tights, perhaps all too aware of how much she’s already said. “But this subject, I don’t think you realise what a big deal it is for people. Well, it is a big deal.

Kristen is acutely aware of all the gossip-mongers. Far more so than I am, it seems. She knows about names: the “Robstens” (those who think K-Stew” and R-Patz” are together); the “Nonstens” (those fans who think they aren’t) and the “F***stens” (those who say they don’t give a monkey’s either way - but actually really do). I ask her who it is such a big deal to? These deranged fans? To her and Rob? What is it she’s so worried about?

"I don't worry about it at all. It's just one of those things. I'm selfish. I'm like, 'That's mine!' And I like to keep whatever is mine remaining that way. It's a funny little game to play and it's a slippery slope. I always say to myself I'm never going to give anything away because there's never any point or benefit for me."

Her boyfriend is English...

So what does this all mean?
Let's break it down...


What I see here is a girl...
Standing in front of an interviewer...
Telling the world that she loves Robert Pattinson.

"That's MINE!"
Yes, Kristen. We know who Rob belongs to.
And who could blame you for wanting to talk about him
even as quietly as you did...
Who could blame you for being excited...
And happy.
And in love.

He IS your boyfriend.
He IS English.
It IS obvious.
He IS yours. 

So much to smile about!

What else is there to really say?
Oh sure...
I could point and laugh at the 
That would be easy to do...
But why bother?
All you have to do is...

Fucking Twirl
That pisses people off

Besides you're not going to change anyone's mind.
Do you really need to?
Kristen has admitted that Rob is her boyfriend.
All the excuses and rationalizations in the world
won't make a difference.
I suggest a couple of things...


Laugh and laugh and laugh!


Sit back, Relax and enjoy the show!


Forecast is for Bitter Foam Storms.
Get an umbrella and shield
yourself from the bullshit as much as possible.


Fucking Twirl!


Enjoying the moment
Is the best reaction
It's better than being all 
Bitter and Angry and Hateful
and looking like this...

Rob isn't English! Noooooooo!

Together. Accept it.

This post is brought to you by the TRUTH

Swoon. Melt. And Swoon again...

 Tom Sturridge is all kinds of sexy sweet.
Not easy to pull off...
But he does it.
"Don't be an asshole. Don't be mean. Don't take shit. Don't settle."
"How about, er, I'm an actor and I really don't give a fuck what you think?
How about that?"
How about that.
Bye for now.

That hammertime emoticon

I'm fucking dying here


bcaceres30 said...

i am very happy camper. i just laugh at the excuses of the haters.

Anna said...

I am still TWIRLING over here too! THIS WAS BY FAR, BY FAR, THE BEST POST TO DATE!!! Your advice will be heeded as I had a run-in with someone from Australia last night. She claimed she really didn't care or want to know if Krisen's interview was available in Australia. Good Grief! Thanks Rose! Your words were right on the money as always! I have to read this again and laugh some more at Hammertime!!!

Sydney said...

Oh, I was certainly happy last night. I remained at work a good two hours past when I normally leave waiting for the entire interview to come out and enjoying the positive reactions.

The negative ones were, of course, expected. But you're right: who cares? Doesn't change anything, never has, never will. We all already knew this as fact anyway. Kristen didn't CONFIRM anything for me.

I enjoyed EVERYTHING she said in this interview. And the interviewer sure seemed to like her. As is the case with pretty much every person who has ever actually met her. She's just very impressive.

Really loved the icons today Rose.

midnightgurl said...

I have been watching and waiting for this post! I knew you would write today-it was too good! You were right, there are good things coming! You are the best...happy, happy! Thanks Rose!

PipDancer said...

Hanging out with Jodie Foster and Joan Jett was the best thing to happen to Kristen. She learned how to stand up to the people who want to invade her privacy for their own entertainment. She's not letting anything diminish her relationship with the man she loves and has a lifetime of plans with. Loved her saying, "How about I'm an actor and I don't give a fuck what you think? How about that?" GO GIRL! Also love that when she and Rob marry and start their family, it will be intimate and private, no publicity. These two will make it. LOVE HER!

Anna said...

What's even funnier to me is when she says "It's so obvious!" Do you all remember the MTV interview when Rob was quoting Kristen saying "It's so obvious!" in his ENGLISH accent. Rob and Kristen are absolutely adorable and that is all there is to it!

Kay said...

Besides the obvious goodness, I thought the GQ article was fantastic....the interviewer really seemed to "get" Kristen and she was so funny, confident, sassy and HAPPY....loved it!

Happy twirly hump day, Roseland! :D

So many funny responses today.

The author of the GQ article seems to be having fun with it too. Check out his twitter account JonathanHeaf.

Stick around and chat some time.

Rhonda said...

Love this post, Rose :)

LMAO over Hammertime

"Together. Accept it"...that pretty much says it all.

Kay- I agree. The interviewer was great with Kristen. I loved everything about it :)

Claire said...


LOL at that bloke.

Rhonda said...

Sydney- I just saw your comment from earlier. LOL CK is certifiable, isn't she?

PL- nice to see you, it's been awhile :)

Hi everyone!

Hope said...


Rose...I am doing the fu*king Texas twirl right along with you!!

Thank you for posting on one of the best days in Rob and Kristen history! You are brilliant, Rose!

IB...hello from yesterday! How is school??

Freddie...sorry I missed you yesterday too. Busy with a big charity event I am in charge of.
Sounds like your job is keeping you tied up.

Melinda/Rhonda...so disappointed that Adele cancelled again, but hopefully she will be back soon.

Angelica...you are cracking me up with your 'Made in Britain' comments...LOL

Hope everyone is happy and well in Roseland.

dottie said...

Stop! Hammertime!!! LOLOL

I hope Kristen is happy with her interview and has no regrets. It must be weird to have so many people care so much. (Actually, "weird" probably doesnt even come close!)The reaction on twitter was HI-LARIOUS!

Laying aside the revelations, the interview was smart, funny, & intriguing. Just like Kristen!

Omoiyari said...

Kristen is awesome ,so honest ,so candid .
I want to know how Robert will handle this .

PL said...


I don't think he knew what he was getting involved in but he's just going with it now. I loved his comment to his Mum, "Mum, I got something trending, NOW ARE YOU PROUD OF ME?".

Hello Rhonda,

I flit in and flit out. Today seems to be a flit in day. Tomorrow who knows.

katy said...

Hi Rose,

Excelent post!

Robert Pattinson is Kristen Stewart's English boyfriend...with acceptance comes peace.

Enjoying the moment
Is the best reaction
It's better than being all
Bitter and Angry and Hateful'

I am happy that Rob and Kristen are happy. That all that matters.

Hope everyone is having a great day. Take care.


Rhonda said...

Hi Hope- I'm very disappointed, but I hope she gets healthy. Good luck with your charity event :)

Rhonda said...

PL- well, you picked a great day to flit in :)

Freddie said...

Hi All,

I hadn't had a chance to see the article yet so thanks for posting the excerpts, Rose. It sounds wonderful.

Have a good day all. Talk to you soon.

dottie said...

HI PL, RHONDA, KATY, HOPE, CLAIRE, SYDNEY, ANNA, BCACERES, FREDDIE, & anyone else I might have missed! I forgot to say hello earlier. :)

PL I'm so happy to see you flitting about!!!

laurieO76 said...

Love the f-ing twirling, Rose. Great post, as always. Epic interview for sane, rational fans everywhere. Still on a high. Gah!

Groovie said...

Excellent post!
The interview was really great, one of her best imo, regardless of the "my boyfriend is english" talk.
She always gives great insight and is intelligent & witty and I enjoy and appreciate that. She is real and just tells it like it is.
Kudos for Kristen for always staying true to herself & protecting what's important to her!

Hope u are all having a wonderful hump day! :)

Hope said...

Rhonda...oh, thanks so much.
How is everything with you?

Hey Dottie!

Hi Kay, Katy, Claire, PL, Freddie, Sydney, Anna, Groovie,and everyone popping in.

DK...enjoy hearing about your new place...sounds like you are having a ball.

Kenzz said...

thanks! Needed it...

Leni said...

Awesome post, Rose!
The hammertime emoticon is just priceless!
It is so funny with what these haters come up to "justify" that the "English Boyfriend" can't be Rob.. PMSL
I can't imagine what else they will come up with, but I'm certain that they still have some crazy shit in store..

Hi everyone! Hope you are all having a great day :)

angelica1 said...

Excellent post Rose!

Having finally caught up with work I can get back to the party :)

dd said...

Gotta love twirling Rose!

The little gifs crack me up every single time, lol :)

One of her best interviews ever and a fantastic photoshoot.
I'm definitely proud to be her fan <3

I'm amazed by how much she knows about the fandom. Even I didn't know that the HBG "has a goddamn fan site", lol. I wonder if she knows that Jella and Bear have their own twitter accounts too, haha.

She's so right, "people are fucking crazy"! But I hope she knows that most of us are here because we genuinely appreciate them and their work, and this is just a distraction for us, not a dangerous and unhealthy obsession.
There're a bunch of sane and non intrusive fans out there!

I can't believe that "MY BOYFRIEND IS ENGLISH" is still trending worldwire...! Yep Kristen, this is definitely a big deal, crazzzy!

Leni said...


bcaceres30 said...

@DD i think that the Twilight fandom is crazy, but there are some that are the good crazy like me and then there is the bad crazy. i think kristen knows that there are fans who are respectful of her boundaries.

dd said...

Hi Leni :)

Leni said...

Hi dd & bcaceres30 :)

dd said...


Yep, we definitely are the "good crazies" lol :)

beaculen said...

Well, all I can say is...too bad, so sad, cant miss what you never had...cause KRISTEN'S had it all along lmao. I was so happy to read that article, I know it's alot for her to throw out there. Awesome post, your emocons crack me up. Keep twirling Rose!

DreamerKind said...

Good afternoon, everyone present and not!

You make the fun, funnier, and the celebrating even more twirly & whirly.
Emoticons! Hammer! Truth! Sanity! We are so fortunate to have Rose! And, each other!

Look at all of the !!!!!!!!!!!!. Thinking of you.

I love to flit in & out, too. Which I will be doing today along with you, all around the mulberry bush until "Pop!".

So true, that I am having a ball, and I'm bouncy, bouncing.

Well, it's a no excuses day for me, got to work that closet. Unless, something really GRANDE should come along, and then, you know me.

Word verf: "hyper"
Yes, indeedy.

Leni said...

I just read the last comments from the previous post and now I am also thinking (hoping) that we get a Rob GQ cover! :)

bcaceres30 said...

@DD i wonder if Kristen has read Musings by Jella, lol.

RobstenCaliMama said...

Rose - You made my day..."Hammertime"! I needed a good laugh today and if you don't mind...I'm happily twirling with you!

Anonymous said...

Well said Rose and a great post too!!

You have always presented the case for Robert and Kristen's relationship against the seemingly never ending assault of foaming haters on your blog. And through it all, with the green sheep, twirling, TomStu and George you have kept true and steadfast to their love, in spite of the hurtful and no-doubt traumatic haters and nonnies.

So today is the day. Today we open the champagne. I'm boogying to Paul McCartney and I'm twirling with you! ;-)

Berry said...

Hey everyone! WOOT WOOT! My boyfriend is English! Did we ever doubt it??? Love how it has been trending on twitter all fucking day!!! xoxo

ADD said...

I think it's the best interview Kristen's ever done. She knows more about the Twilight fandom than I do--I'm not sure that's a good thing. I had no idea that her bodyguard has a fan site. How do you deal with that?

Fiorels said...

ADD- i didn't know about the fan site either... eventhough i knew about the HBG thing haha

PL- LOL at the twitter lol looks like he's having fun as well.

dd said...


OMG, I know that blog... Not sure what would Kristen (and Rob) think about that one... LMAO!

Fiorels said...

LOL talking of craziness..
I wonder what Marcus, Bobby, Lizzy, Peter and Ashley's reaction was when they got a follow from Bear Pattinson and Jella Stewart....

PL said...


He just got Piers Morgan in on the whole thing too. And it is still trending, how weird is that?

Birdie said...

"How about I'm an actor and I don't give a fuck what you think? How about that?" I loved this line,too. She's so damn feisty!
Hello Roseland,
Lovely,lovely day isn't it? These two are such a treat to follow.
I can't imagine what, if any fun the haters get out of following this couple. Wouldn't you think they would give up and find something to invest in that actually brings them joy? It really takes a bitter person to continue to hate just for the sake of hating. Oh well, if that is how they choose to live.
Me, I prefer to twirl.

bcaceres30 said...

@DD i think kristen would think what the fuck. i like the blog because i think its hilarious.

Fiorels said...

PL- i know. I just saw...
it is not weird if you keep reading "my boyfriend is english" in the timeline the WHOLE day!...
what is weird is that there are already T-Shirts........

Annie said...

Just got through reading today's post. :)

Brilliant Rose. Just fucking brilliant! All of it! :)

Hi everybody!

Leni said...

I never understood how someone could spend their entire time on hating..

PL said...


T-shirts really? I thought that was just something they were joking about.

Leni said...

Really, they have T-shirts with the boyfriend-quote on them?

angelica1 said...

Fio - LOL! I couldn't believe it when I saw the t-shirts already

deb said...

HO HELL YA Don't YOU know I'M TWIRLING ( i think I'm getting sick around and around I GO heheheheh LOVE IT )I LOVE YOU KRISTEN STEWARD and Robert your ONE LUCKY MAN ( you know he knows it )Thank you sweet Rose :) DEB.

Fiorels said...

Me too Angelica. then i saw...

check it yourself...


Leni said...

@ Fio:
Thanks for the link - that is crazy LOL

Fiorels said...


Birdie said...

They are simply not very nice people. I'll give someone the benefit of the doubt, but these women seem to take pleasure in hating and pissing people off.

T-shirts? I don't think Kristen was exaggerating when she said people would make this a big deal. Too weird!

ADD said...

I knew about the nickname and what it stands for. I think the fan site is kind of crazy. I mean they don't even know his name.

T-shirts? The Breaking Dawn premiere looks very promising. LOL!

Fiorels said...

Not at all Birdie... Anyway.. My connection just waved goodbye.. Am writing from the phone just to wish you a good day/night. Talk to you tomorrow xx

Leni said...

Yes, Kristen knew exactly what big deal people would make out of it - it really surprised me that she(and probably Rob too) know so much about this fandom - I bet Rob isn't too pleased about these people hating on his girlfriend..

30 said...

This is how happy and supportive most Twi fans are for Rob and Kristen, Ya all check out the banner on top with the link I left below :)

Though I have a feeling Kristen might feel awkward about it, it's all love sweetie.


olivia said...

The very best post ever!
Am smiling, twirling, laughing and enjoying all the happiness.

Fio, excellent comments earlier this morning.

Freddie, hugs for you.

Take care dear Roselanders.
Hugs for y'all.
Hugs for Smitty, Gruff and Syd.
Life is good!

*I*Believe* said...

WOO HOO! Sounds like a party around here!!! What an awesome day!!!

PL~Glad to see you! I am "twitter challenged"

DK~Yes! Lots of exclamation marks around today and they are so appropriate!!!! Thanks for thinking of me!

Hope~Hi! School was good today :)

Speaking of school, I am going to stoop a little low and share a comment that one of my 5 year olds might say......

Hey nonnies! NA NA NA POO POO!!!!!

Oh and SUCK IT while you're at it.

Do nonnies explode?

angelica1 said...

IB - I think they melt if you drop a house on them :)

Saphire1231 said...

Hello Rose and all you lovelies here in Roseland.

I am still getting about with a grin from ear to ear on my face lol.

Wonderful post Rose!

I am loving all the positives from the interview and laughing at some of the nonnies explanations on twitter.

One I had a giggle about said:

I see people still going on about the "My Boyfriend is English" comment. Um, did she say Rob's name? No. He's not the only English guy she knows.

OH really!!! We know this, but he *IS* the only English Guy she is constantly seen with, has adopted a puppy with, shares a home with and hundreds of examples of PDA with (if one cares to look)!!!

WTF!!! I guess there is no end to the denial some folk get into lol.

Ho Hum... I guess there is no help for the helpless!

Me... I will just go on believing , enjoying and loving the (what for me is) the romance of the century...

Viva Rob & Kris!

Love and Rainbows to all - Chrissie

Leni said...

poor pathetic little nonnies.. I guess even if Kristen would say: "My boyfriend is Robert Pattinson." they would come up with something like he isn't the only Robert Pattinson in the world and that Kristen must mean a different one.. LOL

JBO said...

Anyone know if this interview was done in LA or London? OF course the haters are saying it was done ihnh LA before ROBS trip to London, before the break up. Not shocked they came back with this response, they are not very creative.

Rhonda said...

IB- LOL I think I heard the sound of their heads exploding a few times today ;)

Hope- I'm sorry for the slow response. I'm doing very well, thanks. It sounds like you're staying very busy. I hope all is well :)

gwen said...

Damn I'm late to the big news, though its not news anymore coz 'its so obvious' but it is better late than never. MY BOYFRIEND IS ENGLISH is still trending today, lol.

Love all the magazine covers of Kristen! She's such a gorgeous woman.

I'm twirling with you Rose :)

Hi to all the ladies and few gentleman here. Take care and have a great Thursday!

30 said...


What "Break Up" ?

LMFAO!!! I swear, the insanity never ceases to amaze me with these jealous harpies.

Barbara Fenwick said...

Rose, I am so happy, and like you, I am laughing and twirling like crazy, and everybody around me think I am totally insane.

I was amazed and so happy to hear her admit Rob is her boyfriend, because I never thought we would hear it. I too hope she doesn't regret it, and somehow I doubt she will.

This has been a remarkable day. I hope all Roselanders are enjoying it as much as I am.

lostB said...

Read this while listening to Don't Stop Me Now by Queen. Because I'm having a good time... And floating in ecstasy. So perfect. Thank-you, lovely rose!

Ask Anyone Who Knows

The Ink Spots-1947:

There is no shore without an ocean
Ask anyone who knows
There is no love without devotion
Ask anyone who knows

A dream will stray, lose its way
If it can't come true
Night and day all my dreams
Are so dependent on you

A sigh can mean a sweet beginning
Ask anyone who knows
It's love that keeps the whole world spinning
And heaven only knows

I have no heart when we're apart
It leaves me when you go
And darling if you don't believe me
Ask anyone who knows

A sigh can mean a sweet beginning, Honey
Ask anyone who knows
You see, it's love and love alone that keeps the whole world spinning
And heaven only knows

I have no heart when we're apart
It leaves me when you go
And darling if you don't believe me
Ask anyone who knows

Thank you/Haku1234567890

Good Night DK...I have been playing with my new Iphone...I am having so much fun I dont want to stop playing but I must. Have a wonderful evening!

DreamerKind said...

Thanks dear, I get the IPhone fun.

I'm watching the Martin Scorsese's Part 1, "George Harrison-Living In The Material World" documentary on HBO while I sort my paperwork. Multi-tasking, hahahaha.


Fiorels said...

Morning Roseland!
Passing for a quick Hi... and sharing a cute link where Adele is aked about Breaking Dawn and she says Rob needs to go back to England cause everyone is starting thinking he's American LOL
Just to point out that HE IS ENGLISH! hehe


ok, laters... <3

sjjw said...

Good morning everyone! I haven't been around much....real life is keeping me super busy. sigh. But all is well and I hope everyone here is too.

And, guess what? Kristen's boyfriend is English!


*I*Believe* said...

Steve Jobs~ You made the world a better place. Thanks to you, I have my iPod with all on my favorite Twilight Saga songs on it.


Annie said...

Steve Jobs was a pioneer and a visionary.

Rest in peace.

Claire said...


I love that Adele is a Rob fan, not a Twilight fan, but a Rob fan. :D

She's right, he is a national treasure.

Super RN Gas Passer said...

Good Morning ROSELAND...

I am LOVING my new I Phone but I am SAD to hear of the death of Steve Jobs this morning...I wish his family, friends,collegues and employees ALL THE BEST...What a wonderful gift(s) he has given us all with his genius...

ROSE...I just re-read your post from yesterday...you are a genius too...:)

KRISTEN..You are busy but just in case you are out there in cyberspace today I want to give you a "cyber" HIGH FIVE for your GQ interview:) You are at the top of your game...Rock on Girl... We are so proud of you!

Happy Thursday Everybody!

Robstenland said...

HI "swetilicious" Rose, it is not easy to find happiness within ourselves and it is impossible to find anywhere else. Even more difficult is to feel happiness in the hearts of many people at once and that's what has happened yesterday.Thank you Rose, your post today is wonderful and, as always, expresses serenity! By giving me a call to your expression "fucking twirl"!

Anna said...

Just wanted to say Hi to my favorite peeps in the whole wide world! My boyfriend is still English!

Soleil Anne said...


Why am I always late to a party?

I was twirling,dancing & laughing when I read this.

Maybe all this PR s**t will stop after all & that those nonstens +
combatstens will CEASE TO EXISTS!!!

I truly love & admire the BBs for their DIGNITY in handling all these cr*p that goes with being famous.

I wish them all the sucess in their careers...


Tante Soleil

Motherhin said...

I don't know if any of you follow these nutcases but I've seen some of their postings and I truly hope that Kristen never has to see that crap and that she can live in peace knowing that she did what she needed to do in order to state her case for her privacy. Her boyfriend is English and it's been obvious to those of us with half a brain for years.

Anonymous said...

aawwwwwwwwwww! rose ! i swear just five minutes ago , i just thought "hey i haven't been on robpatintoxication in a while, might have been last week,lemme check see if there's news" i was thinking more along the lines of you commenting about twilight tuesdays before BD premiere and then i see the title of your post...HUH? whaaat? she did not!! heck yeah WOOOOT WOOOT

I absolutely love that you highlighted the quotes in red, just in case LOL! and then the icing on the cake has to be your emoticons, i swear i look forward to them as much as your posts, they're hilarious and tell a whole story by themselves!
i do wish the journalist had kept that quote to himself but he might have been fired for witholding it sooo...
as much as i'm enjoying myself twirling and laughing, i couldnt help think this is so old news, it seems like a decade ago we were wondering if they actually were a couple but that hasnt been the case since '09 and tarmac pics for those on the fence!
those nonstens really are glutons for punishment,nothing else can explain why they're still holding on for dear life on the mast of a ship that has foundered!
i say it every now and then but rose seriously BEST POST EVER!!!

Freddie said...

Hi folks,

I'm just stopping in to say hello. I hope everyone has had a good day.

Talk to you soon. Take care.

Melinda said...

This post was just too cute! Now I have "Can't Touch This" running through my head. It's a great twirly song...

Been dealing with car insurance companies all day today. Last night a sports car got a little frisky with my SUV. I'm fine and dandy but the car has to go get fixed. Such is life I guess.

30- I keep forgetting to ask you. How's the new relationship going?

Hello and a wave being sent out all over Roseland. Hope everyone had a great day today!

Freddie said...

Melinda - thanks....now I have "Can't Touch This" running through my head. But at least it's replaced "Move Like Jagger" that's been stuck in my head for the last week or so.

Sorry to hear about your SUV and I'm glad that you are okay. It's such an inconvenience when this happens.

Have a good weekend.

Melinda said...


Just for you...lol! Anything to get Mick out of your head.


As for the incident. I'm just happy that we (myself and the other driver) are okay.

It seems work is bogging you down. I hope it gets better for you soon! Take care.

Freddie said...

Melinda - LOL. Thanks for the video. Such a blast from the past. Love those pants.

Have a good one.

wania said...

Rose, I'm twirling with you! Twirling with this delicious post! Beautiful pics...
Twirling... twirling... since I did read Kristen's GQ ( f*...astic ) interview... I'm twirling, dancing, laughing ... all at once!
I did all kind dances... dance of joy ... victory dance ... happy bitch dance... tribal dance... rain dance ... Impossible stop!

I can see Rob twirling too... Yes, he's ...
Ninja's Rob should be... LOL...rolling the floor... too happy... just enjoying... Kristen doing a good mess in the fandom... in all social network... his Kristen, his American girl ...

Oh, Kristen bad ass! My hero! You're a bomb! Shaking the structures!

The best of the best of Kristen Stewart ....
" My boyfriend is English" (of course! some doubt??? )
" I'm selfish. I'm like, that's mine." ( clever girl... )
" I mean it's like, come on guys, it's so obvious! ( hellooo! wake up! )

WOW! No comparison the best interview so far ... Brilliant ... Unexpected ... Sensational ...

Me? Still twirling ... dancing ... laughing... for a long time yet ...

DK, my lovely friend... I know... you're twirling too... sure...

Happy Friday for all in Roseland

DreamerKind said...

Twirling, swirling, sure am. Also, busy, dizzy, in a tizzy.

I'm happy that some of the music makes you "THUD".

Relieved that you are fine after the sports car friskyness.

Good morning Roselanders!

Until we meet again....

30 said...

HI Melinda. :)

Thanks for asking, it is going very well actually. He is coming to spend 6 days with me next week, finishing up nursing school this year and the "plan" is for him to move here with me :) We shall see what that brings but I am very very happy. He is amazing.Like seriously, I dont know how I got this lucky and found him maybe being single for all those year and waiting not settling was the key. :)

Sydney said...

Claire: this is a random posting, but someone just posted this on twitter and it made me think of you. Or the first 10 seconds did.


Ahhh...never gets old. I love Nick's conspiratorial smirk there too. Try and watch it just once. I'm at like, 22. Good times.

Claire said...




Imagine how she felt? PMSL

Nick's little smile is hilarious.

The thing that makes that whole video for me is the fact that Rob has no idea what's going on behind him.

He's just getting interviewed and there's epic shit happening behind him. *snort*

She was obviously looking for a photo op, and the fact that the bodyguard and Stephanie tag teamed to block her is funny as fuck.

*Puts vid in favourites*

Claire said...

And I see that in an interview today she states that she reads the AT boards.

I wouldn't be shocked if a lot of the vile comments on there about Robert and Kristen are actually posted by her.

Sydney said...

I can't stop the chuckle that comes every single time I see Nick's face. Rob is oblivious, just answering questions...no idea what's going on. I love how only once NR looks at the camera and realizes it's rolling does she walk away.

And Stephanie glances at Nick and then back over her shoulder to make sure the bird girl is really gone. CLASSIC!

Forever favorited.

bcaceres30 said...

@Sydney i thought the video was funny but i would not have even noticed her Rob is just so handsome.

Sydney said...


Well of course she reads the AT boards. I firmly believe that she was Ted's source for a long time. The only time he ever had any scoop was during actual filming and only before Rob and Kristen froze Nikki out. Ted used to talk mad shit about her, and then one day he did a 180. Yeah, wonder why. He hasn't had scoop in years. And miraculously it coincides like, to the day, Rob and Kristen stopped hanging out with her.

Can't believe that girl preaches anti-bullying. Irony.

bcaceres30 said...

@sydeney i have always wondered why Kristen stopped hanging out with Nikki Reed.

Claire said...

Seriously though, if that happened to me I wouldn't be able to show my face ever again, I'd be mortified.

Watch the bodyguard at 5 seconds, he's like ''GTFO''. PMSL

Sydney said...

BC: I have no idea. I only guessed it was because she realized she was a pawn in Nikki's Get-Famous-At-Any-Cost ploy. Every time they were papped out together Kristen looked bewildered while Nikki just smiled and posed.

The Vancouver paps flat out admitted that Nikki called them all the time. Knowing how much Rob and Kristen hate that, it seems like a logical conclusion.

Could be more than that though. I really don't know.

Sydney said...

Claire: I KNOW! Plus it happened on live tv. And forever immortalized on youtube. So mortifying.

Claire said...


I don't really know anything about Ted. I watched a video he did a while back, and that was more than enough for me.

She was also asked how Twilight has helped her further her career (or words to that affect). Her response was that it has given her time to decide whether she wants to continue in film, pursue a TV career, or write a novel. So in other words, it hasn't furthered her career at all, because it seems that nobody wants to employ her.

Sydney said...

Claire: Lucky you. Before I was on twitter and knew any better I read eonline. Such a miserable place.

Oh, Nikki's taking the time to ~think, huh? Otherwise known as "I have not received AN offer since Breaking Dawn was done filming and I'm in a mad panic about what I'm going to do with my life so I'm focusing on this sham marriage so no one realizes I'm not working."

Claire said...


I've read the comments once, a few weeks ago and I was shocked at just how poisonous they were. E! really needs to get a handle on that place, it seems to be a safe haven for some of the most vile, unhinged, homophobic people on the planet.

Motherhin said...

I don't know if any of you follow NR on Twitter but something I've noticed is whenever there are a bunch of tweets about the "fab couple," NR never fails to tweet something about herself. She just cannot stay out of their limelight. She will hang on for dear life with her claws of steel until every single ounce of limelight she can possibly steal from them is gone.

I don't know the story obviously but it really did seem as if she was creating publicity for two people that don't want that kind of publicity and then if they didn't want their story sold to the media, their only option was to cut that person out. Not going to lie, I'm extremely surprised that NR hasn't gone to some source to out Kris and Rob for cash. I wonder when that day will come.

bcaceres30 said...

i think nikki reed is a decent actress. i actually think she makes a good Rosalie. Its sad that she craves fame and attention. i like Kristen and Dakota's frienship.

Kenzz said...

Good evening, Roseland! That video that Sydney referenced is just too funny, although it's a little choppy when it plays...I'll give it a shot later to see if it'll "smooth out"... that being said, I could clearly make out the "block"... seriously funny shit :)

Claire: there is NO doubt in my cynical mind that NR (or her cronies) post some awful vile stuff, both here in the past, and all over the boards. And I wanted to agree with you re: your reference to Kris knowing all about the "stens"...I too wonder where she learned about that...hmmmm ;)

Motherhin: I don't follow twitter, but it wouldn't surprise me about the famewhoring characteristic of NR... I have wondered at times whether she is honestly imbalanced?

Kudos sent out to Smitty, Gruff, and Syd for jobs well done in the past, present, and future...

P.S.: @30: Best wishes with the new fella..he sounds like a prize that you've earned, baby!! :) My hubs and I just played hookie yesterday to celebrate 21 years of marriage... Had a blast spending the whole day together, and reiterated (in my mind) that being best friends is truly the key to a successful union... Hope you and your new guy have fun together first and foremost... I bet everything else will fall into line :)

amara said...

Helo everyone,
Have not been able to drop by the past few days. I went back to work on Tuesday, after having two weeks vacation.

Kristen looks beyond beautiful on both GQ and Glamour.

Finally read the full GQ interview. IMO the best interview with Kristen to date. The interviewer seems to have done his research, he also remained interested and objective throughout. Most importantly, he allowed Kristen to respond and express her thoughts and opinions. Kristen's answers were once again honest and insightful.

Besides the obvious, this is my favourite quote: "I'm glad I'm not one of those actresses who is just so ready to open up for everyone". Perfect!

Ok, I'll stop my ramblings now...Hope everyone is enjoying their day. Take care. :)

amara said...

Oops I meant "Hello" not helo

DreamerKind said...


Flogging Molly:

Drank away the rest of the day
Wonder what my liver'd say
That's all you can

Blackened days
With their bigger gales
Blow in your parlor
To discuss the day
Listen, that's all you can

Ah but don't, no don't sink the boat
That you built
You built to keep afloat

Sick and tired of what to say
No one listens anyway
That's all you can

Ramblin' years of lousy luck
You miss the smell of burnin' turf
That's all you can

Singled out for who you are
It takes all types to judge a man
Feel, that's all you can

Filthy suits with bigot ears
Hide behind their own worst fears
Live, that's all you can
It's all you can
It's all you can...do

No matter where I put my head
I'll wake up feeling sound again
Breathe, it's all you can

Tomorrow smells of less decay
The flowers greet this bloomin' fray
Be thankful
That's all you can

A ripe old age
That's what I am
A ripe old age
Just doin' the best I can

Thank you/CD101FM

DreamerKind said...

Happy Friday to all!

I'll be in and out tonight, posting songs, and for chatting.

Got my paperwork done and I'm celebrating it, and other good things like 30's happiness, R/K solid as a rock, and more.

Kenzz said...

I'm sooooooo happy DK popped it!

Freddie said...

Hi DK, Kenzz and Amara. I'm just popping in quickly before crashing for the night.

Kenzz - belated happy 21st anniversary. It sounds like it was a special day with your special guy.

DK - I have another singer for you (although you may already know her): Lara Fabian. If you don't, I'll find a couple song to share with you over the weekend. She has a couple of really beautiful ballads (e.g. Love By Grace).

30 - I'm so glad things are going well with your new guy. You sound very happy.

Take care everyone.

DreamerKind said...

Conviction Of The Heart

Kenny Loggins:

Where are the dreams that we once had?
This is the time to bring them back.
What were the promises caught on the tips of our tongues?
Do we forget or forgive?

There's a whole other life
Waiting to be lived when...
One day when we're brave enough
To talk with conviction of the heart.

And down your streets I've walked alone,
As if my feet were not my own
Such is the path I chose
Doors I have opened and closed
I'm tired of living this life,
Fooling myself, believing we're right, when...

I've never given love
With any conviction of the heart
One with the earth, with the sky
One with everything in life

I believe we'll survive
If we only try...
How long must we all wait to change
This world bound in chains that we live in
To know what it is to forgive,
And be forgiven?

It's been too many years of taking now.
Isn't it time to stop somehow?
Air that's too angry to breathe
Water our children can't drink
You've heard it hundreds of times

You say your aware, believe, and you care, but...
Do you care enough
Where's your conviction of the heart?

Thank you/reevrob

dottie said...

Just passing through to wish everyone a Happy Weekend.

30 - Congrats on that great guy!

Kenzz - Happy Anniversary!

Hugs to the Roseland gang :)

Super RN Gas Passer said...

Good Evening DK, KENZZ and FREDDIE..

DK..Im glad you got caught up on your paperwork:)and I see you have some good songs for us!

KENZZ..Happy Anniversary!

FREDDIE...I hope you are well this evening and ready to relax...

Whew...What a day I have had...they are almost finished with the outside redo of deck and patio, the carpet cleaners came,hubby was home directing all the activities while I was at business..of course first thing this morning the battery was dead in my car so hubby had to transport me and get that fixed for me...son had to take me to my hair appt this afternoon...he was thrilled (eyeroll)..luckily by the end of the day I got my car back and had dinner and saw the baby so I am in for the night and ready to party with Roseland for a while:)

Super RN Gas Passer said...

DOTTIE..Hello..You slipped in while I was posting. How are you this evening?

DreamerKind said...

Your Arms Feel Like Home

3 Doors Down:

I think I walked too close to love
And now I'm falling in
I felt so many things this weary soul can't take
Maybe you just caught me by surprise
The first time I looked into your eyes

There's a life inside of me
That I can feel again
It's the only thing that takes me
Where I've never been

I don't care if I lost
Everything that I have known
It don't matter
Where I lay my head tonight
Your arms feel like home
Feel like home

This life ain't the fairy tale
We both thought it would be
I can see your smiling face
As it's staring back at me
I know we both see these changes now
I know we both understand somehow

I don't care if I lost
Everything that I have known
It don't matter where I lay my head
Tonight your arms feel like home

Thank you/guppy80

DreamerKind said...

What a day you had! Hope the baby/hairdo/hanging here has made up for the rest.

Poof! Hello/goodbye. You have a great weekend, too.

Yes, 21 years is outstanding, and I'm very happy for you.

Lay those Lara Fabian songs on me, when you have time. Great idea.

Super RN Gas Passer said...

DK..I assume you are IN for the evening...Looks like its kind of quiet tonight. I wish Syd or Smitty could stick there head in..Id love to know what Syds been up to lately...and Gruff of course...I cant remember how long its been...and Rose also....

Oh, by the way, Yoko is going to Iceland this weekend and will light a tower, she calls it the Peace Tower, in memory of John..she will do that 4pm New York time..9pm London time...

DreamerKind said...

I am in for the night, after eating at a Bavarian restaurant with the sib & SIL. The best comfort, filling food in my world! Might have leftovers for two days, at least.

So, now I have a big decision..beer, lemoncello or champagne? Oh, here's a novel thought, none of them?

DreamerKind said...

I follow Yoko on Twitter, and admire her dedication to Lennon's memory.

Fiorels said...

Morning ladies!
Finally yesterday I took my last exam before the classes begin again so I can relax for a few days now :D

how are you all??

Olivia- thanks ^^
Claire- yeah me too. haha it's just too funny that she doesn't really know much about the saga but linked "Breaking Dawn" to "Robert Pattinson" as first thought lol
Mel- so sorry about the car! hope it's not a too big damage. And glad you are okay!
30- awwww so happy for you :')
Sydnay- LMAO! that 10 secs clip bahahaha
Claire- wouldn't be shocked either...
Mortherin- i don't follow her and am not going to give her the satisfaction to have another "following more" but I happen to read her tweets and YES! All she talks about is her! Jeez... so fucking annoying..
bcaceres- I don't like Nikki as Rosalie at all. I don't mean to bash, just giving my opinion... rosalie is supposed to be the most beautiful girl in the world and.. well, she's not o_O I mean, did you see her eyebrowns most of the times? It's scary... and also pale skin doesn't fit at all on her...
Nope, not a good Rosalie for me. It's pretty clear they could do better but she was friend with CH or something...so...
Kenzz- happy happy anniversary <333
Super- glad they are almost done ^^
DK- thanks for the song and good job on getting the paperwork done :)

I just saw the GQ PS... wow...
I wonder what goes through kristen's mind when she has to play all provocative and stuff lol

Okay, i'll be happily walking around the house doing nothing :D
talk to you later... xx

Birdie said...

Love is in the air!

So happy for you. You give hope for those who think there isn't anyone out there.
21 years, congratulations to you and I sense the love is still going strong. You give hope for those that think it doesn't last.
Kristen, Rob, Claire, Angelica,and those of you with traveling partners, you show that absence does make the heart grow fonder.
Thanks for the cool tunes DK and glad you finally found what you were looking for in that closet.
Have a lovely weekend Roseland!

DreamerKind said...

Yes, love is in the air and the sun is rising bright pink!
I sent you an email.
This may be the day, Sweets, enjoy!

@Bren & Gwen
Happy Saturday & Sunday!

Wishing you a wonderful day, too.

I'm going down for the count (of many blessings, one by one).

Word verf (for real):


I ngo napp
I go to deep sleep this time! Nap time was earlier.

DreamerKind said...

Love to think of you doing nothing, happily walking around!


olivia said...

A beautiful and very good morning to all of Roseland!

Happy Anniversary to you Kenzz. So great that you and your hubs got to get away and enjoy the day.

30, very happy that you have met a very special man and am wishing you every joy possible in your future together.

Fio, just saw your new Kristen vid. Gorgeous and powerful. ¡Felicitaciones! Glad you now have a few days to rest up before the start of classes again.

Robert, you are in my thoughts and prayers.

Really liked the cute comment by Jackson R. about Rob and Kristen "getting/destroying a room". He is such a talented and quite the darling Texan.

((Hugs)) and a **wave** to all the wonderful regs that come here to Roseland.
Hugs to Smitty, Gruff and Syd.
Have a great Saturday.

Hope said...

Good Morning Roseland...Hi Rose!

Olivia...hope all is well down south. Waving hello neighbor!

30...so happy for you!
Perhaps our first Roseland engagement!!

Kenzz... Happy Anniversary!

Melinda...sorry about your car. Glad you are okay...that's what matters.

Sydney/Claire...the banter between you two regarding that clip and the LOOK on Ikki's face...LMAO!

*I*Believe* said...

Morning All!

BD 1!!!!

Weather in the Northeast is going to be gorgeous today. Planning to get out to enjoy the end of the warm weather.

Hi Hope...have a great day!

30~Be happy!

Melinda~I was so glad to read that you are OK after your little car thingy.

Kenzz~Happy Anniversary

Shouting out to Rose, Gruff, Smitty, Syd and all the regs!

Fiorels said...

DK- LOL hope you had a good nap :D

Olivia- thank you! Glad you liked it!
I gotta agree on the J. comment LOL made me smile as well hehe

Hi Hope ^^

IB- time is kinda passing by quickly! I remember like it was yesterday saying "i can't believe we have to wait 17 months for the next one!" and here it goes... almost one month left.. can't wait...

Hope said...

IB...I miss living in the NE with the cooler temps and fall foliage.
Enjoy your outdoor fun!

Hi Fio!!

Gotta run the Saturday errands..

Melinda said...

I'm sitting at home reading while listening to the rain pouring outside. Really lovely way to spend a Saturday.

Hope everyone else is having a relaxing day as well.

Fio- Loved the new video!

Kenzz- Happy Anniversary!!

30- Glad to hear that things are going well between you and your guy.

Sydney/Claire- That video clip will never get old! Thanks for the giggle. Nikki needs help. Period.

Thanks everyone for the nice comments about my fender bender. Life has it's crazy moments that's for sure.

Leni said...

Hi everyone! Hope you are all having a great weekend :)

Happy Anniversary!

So happy for you :)

I'm glad that it was "just" a fender bender and nothing serious did happen to you..

I love your new vid - gave me goose bumps!!!

@Sydney & Claire:
LMAO at the vid and your comments! No surprise that Nikki tries anything to get attention..

Fiorels said...

Thanks Leni and Mel <3

DreamerKind said...

I'm up but not yet, at 'em..

Good afternoon, for it's a glorious day!

Back later. Have some fun in the meanwhile.

DreamerKind said...

What a super slow day..at least on here.

To be the last poster and also, the last poster, is an awesome honor.

Unless, someone posts after me.

It's been an exciting week, and I've had a good one. Hope all are well.

Hugs to Rose, Smitty, Gruff & Syd.

Annie said...

Good Sunday morning Roseland..

Such beautiful weather here. I hope it's the same wherever you all are.

*I*Believe* said...

Hi Friends!

Promotional tour stops have been announced. How come they are all abroad? How about throwing those of us in the US, especially the east coast, a bone?

Fio~Yes, I can't believe how quickly the time passes.

Annie~It is gorgeous here today too. Tomorrow a cold front is suppose to come through.

Hope~The leaves are starting to change. Drove towards VT yesterday and the colors are beautiful.

Happy Columbus Day to all in the US and I believe tomorrow is Thanksgiving in Canada? So, Happy Thanksgiving (someone please correct me if I'm wrong)

Freddie said...

Hi IB - yes, you are correct. It is Thanksgiving for us tomorrow, so thanks for the well wishes.

Happy Columbus Day to you as well. Enjoy your day off.

Take care all.

Annie said...

Hi *IB*. :)
Re: BD1 promotion..........No premiere here it seems but maybe a fan event.
I'm sure we'll at least get Rob on Letterman (Bite Me), Jimmy Fallon, Regis and Kelly etc.
Wishing hard for Kristen too. :)

Taylor I think will make the above shows as well.

Off for the afternoon. Take care everybody.

Annie said...

Hi Freddie!
Enjoy your Thanksgiving weekend......Here's to family, friends and fine food.

Ok....... Really heading out now. Bye!

Freddie said...

Annie - thanks. Enjoy this fabulous day. I'm off to do the same.

*I*Believe* said...

Annie~A POSSIBLE FAN EVENT IN NYC???? Please give more details!!!

Also, I agree about Letterman (suck it)...he was rude to Kristen and treated her in a way she did not deserve.

LOL...veri. word~nonfan

Annie said...

*IB* : I WISH I had the power to make that happen, unfortunately I don't.
That comment was wishful thinking on my part.

Summit should really think about having some sort of fan event
here too......Maybe it's too much to ask or even hope for.

bcaceres30 said...

@ i believe. yeah Letterman was very rude to Kristen but Kristen handled him like a pro. i hoope kristen does the today show and i cant remember his name but he is very nice to Kristen whenever she is on his show.

DreamerKind said...

Good evening!

Wishing you and all Canadians, a very Happy Thanksgiving.

Sorry I missed your call.

I'm off to the winery but will be back later with songs, and hopefully chitty chat.

DreamerKind said...

Thanks To You

Tyler Collins:

Thank you for teaching me how to love
Showing me what the world means
What I've been dreamin' of
And now I know
There is nothing that I could not do

Thanks to you
For teaching me how to feel
Showing me my emotions
Letting me know what's real
From what is not

What I've got is more that I'd ever hoped for
And a lot of what I hope for is
Thanks to you

No mountain, no valley
No time, no space
No heartache, no heartbreak
No fall from grace

Can't stop me from believing
That my love will pull me through
Thanks to you

For teaching me how to live
Putting things in perspective
Teaching me how to give
And how to take
No mistake
We were put here together

And if I breakdown
Forgive me but it's true
That I'm aching with the love I feel inside
Thanks to you

Thank you/seeflyers4details

Kenzz said...

Freddie: Happy Thanksgiving! Have a wonderful dinner, and a lovely time with your family!

Annie: perhaps if you, I, IB, Freddie, Rhonda, 30 and the rest of the Northeasterners wish hard enough, "they will come"!

Fio: Congrats on your last exam! Hope you can enjoy a couple of days off... Your video tribute to your beloved dog was incredibly touching to those of us who are pet-lovers... can you share what type of dog she was? I have a dachshund and chiweenie (dachshund/chihuahua mix), and she reminded me of those wonderful hounds! :)

Olivia: I'll join you in the "admiration of Jackson R." club! <3

Melinda: Your Saturday sounds heavenly... don't we all deserve a day like that? Sooo glad you're OK from the sports car/SUV flirtation... You can never trust those flashy racing autos! :(

Hope: Like IB, I was "north" this weekend (Maine), and the trees were just turning red, yellow, and orange...spectacular! Wish yu had the opportunity to get back here during this season...

DK: How was the winery trip? Did you discover anything that enticed you to buy? I always find they taste must better while I'm there, in the ambiance of the winery, than when I get the bottle home!

Where, oh where, are Smitty, Gruff, and Syd (Syd, Syd, Syd!!!) Also, I'm beginning to have Rose withdrawals :(

Howdy-do's to dottie, Claire, angelica, bcaceres, leni, IB, Birdie, and so many other friends here! Have a great day off tomorrow if you're lucky enough to celebrate Canadien Thanksgiving, or our Columbus Day.

PS: Super: What a busy week you had! Sounds a bit as if it weren't for bad luck, you'd have had no luck at all! LOL

Robert said...

hey everyone

this will probably be my last post for a while as my surgery has been moved up to this coming wed.

so my two cents:

first of all thanks to all of you for being so thoughtful and keeping me in your prayers

--my boyfriend is english--this made me smile. i've given a lot of thought as to why i care so much about this couple and i really believe the thing is we get to see two people actually being in love with each other and it really is fun to watch

also, to continue a conversation we started earlier, absolutely teachers are underpaid. but, let's face it we live in a market based economy and there is no market for teaching. we simply don't value teaching the way we should.

but you will never hear me complaining about it. a market based economy is the logical system in a democracy. and i agree with winston churchill who said "democracy is the worst form of govt. there is.....except for all the others"

besides if we didn't live this way we would have never had rob and kristen come into our lives

one last thing, a lot of people are giving this girl shit about saying her teachers failed her and i know she meant "gave me a failing grade" but the truth is they failed her in every sense of the word

IN MY OPINION, if i had a student, a child, who had the opportunity to pursue a career in acting, i would find a way no matter how much it inconvenienced me to help her, to build her up, not shoot her down


i'll be back next weeek some time -- save me a seat

Kenzz said...

Robert: That is WHY you are a spectacular example of what being a professor means... your students are indeed blessed, as WE are to have "met" you thru this medium. I have such positive feelings towards the outcome of your surgery...may it lead to everything you expect and desire <3

So funny for you to have brought up the role of democracy in the greater scheme... my daughter has an opportunity to travel this summer, and I have recently been "lecturing" her about how lucky she is to live within this flawed, but fantastic system of government!

We're all thinking of you this week...can't wait for an update :)

Robert said...


i forgot to tell you that your description of how you and your husband spent your anniversary was one of my favorite things in recent memory

Kenzz said...

Robert: Just between you and I (wink, wink), I wish I had a stronger filter...I say things here sometimes that I regret the next morning...I oftentimes feel as if I've shared too much, or too many personal details! Having said that, I'm so pleased my post made you happy...

Are you anxious about Wednesday, or relieved that you're taking this bold step?

Robert said...


i would be really sad if you filtered your writing. i wish you would come sit in my class and show my students how to write

the truth is while i can't say i am excited about having a hole drilled in my head while i am awake [my surgeon said "we will start with a local anasthetic and for 30 seconds you will hear the sound of an electric drill and your head will vibrate and from then on it's a cakewalk" to which i said "alrighty then"], i really just want to get it over with and start living my life again.

Kenzz said...

Robert: Does it highlight a character flaw of mine that I laughed out loud at your description of your convo with your surgeon? I prefer to view my reaction as a direct result of your wit and humor in the face of indescribable anxiety...

Based on the numerous medical specialists I've dealt with over the years in the care of my son, I've developed a (hopefully healthy) attitude when interacting with the folks in the medical field... That point of view has saved me a nervous breakdown, I'm sure! LOL

Seriously, I can attest to the fact that a positive attitude really can affect the end results... thankfully, you appear to have that in spades! Best of luck from me, and I'm certain this forum will rally to not only support your increase in function, but pray for your ultimate and complete recovery.

Fiorels said...

Robert- i join kenzz in saying that you really are the example of what a teacher should be... and your devotion to something so pure is just the prove of how sensitive you are.
I'm sure everything will be okay with the surgery.
You're in our thoughts <3

Kenzz- thank you... she was a crossbreed as well..
We never really knew what cause we always take dogs saving them from the street...
surely one half was a spitz... the other half may have been a chihuahua but we are not sure..
My dad just got it from a box that was at the vet... She was so little at the time that my sister thought it was a rat LOL

Morning everyone in Roseland.
Hope you have a great day!

Leni said...

I wish you the best of luck and that everything after your operation will be as you hope! I include you in my prayers and am in awe of your positive attitude which will surely help leading to a positive outcome :)

I got my dog from a shelter, she has really fluffy fur but when we washed her for the first time in the bath tub she also looked like a rat.. she was so malnourished.. but now she has gained all the weight back and even some more LOL

Leni said...

I just watched the tribute video of your dog - it was very touching.
You wrote that you think that no one really cares - well I care and I am sure that all the wonderful people here care too. I also agree with you that animals are better than most people <3

Rhonda said...

Morning all,

Just peeking in quickly before work. I hope everyone enjoyed a nice weekend..

30- I'm really happy for you. I hope things work out just the way you want.

Freddie- Happy Thanksgiving!

Robert- Wishing you all the best. I will be thinking of you this week. Take care..((Hugs))

Have a great Monday everyone...

angelica1 said...

Hi Everyone,I hope everyone had a good weekend.

Robert - I'm convinved your operation is going to be successful. We'll be thinking of you :)
