Rob and Kristen in the New Year


I like even years.
Even years are good.
I think I'm an even kinda person.

Two Thousand Twelve
will be a GREAT year.
Count on it.


Random end of the year thoughts.


1. Lots (and I mean LOTS) of feedback on
yesterdays 'guest' post.
Some people didn't seem to realize that I didn't
write that post...
But then again...
Reading comprehension is difficult for a lot of people.
I'm guessing even he didn't expect so much chatter
about his opinion
However passionate it may have been.
I agree with most of it.
We have had some heated discussions
on the whole 'pap' thing...
But my friend sees things from a different perspective.
And I appreciate that.
It's always good to see things from a different
point of view...
You live. You learn.
99% of the comments were positive
and of course the people that he targeted
were a bit... annoyed.
Oh well.

Nana Rose

2. For reasons that I cannot begin to fathom...
Whenever the Foaming Fringe get upset with me
They pull the 'Grandma' card.
Still haven't figured out where that came from.
I guess when you need to insult someone
and you really don't have anything to say...
You have to resort to the same old insults like 'fat' or 'ugly'

Twirling Granny!

I wish I could convey to you how many laughs
I have gotten over that.
"She's a grandmother!"

Well... I'm not a grandmother
although I hope to be one someday.
And seriously...
Is that really ALL you got?
Oh no!
I'm dare say there are plenty of women in this fandom
who are in fact grandmothers...
And since when is that a BAD thing?
Good Grief.
Surely you can do better than that.

How many sighting will there be?

3. The Rob and Kristen sightings will no
doubt be amped up the next few days.
Rob alone.
Kristen alone.
Rob and Kristen together.
People who think they are funny...
People who just want attention
People who have an agenda.
 It's tedious.
99 out of 100 tweets are bullshit lies...
and that makes you doubt the 1 tweet that is true.
Kinda sad that people believe the bullshit.
They swallow it and act like it tastes good.
Sucky people... Suck.

Is it midnight yet?
I'm sure everyone would just love to get a shot 
of Rob and Kristen kissing at midnight...
Good luck with that.
Rob and Kristen have a habit of NOT
performing for people's entertainment
And for keeping their relationship to themselves.
IF they go out and someone sees them...
I hope no one says anything until AFTER they are gone.
No tweets.
No pics.
No anything.

Let them have their moment.


4. The "Golden" child.
I'm indifferent to that whole thing.
I don't think about Rob and Kristen having babies
I mean...
Don't get me wrong...
I'm sure any babies will be incredibly adorable.
But their future offspring just isn't on my radar.
I know some people get all sappy and cute about 
the whole GOLDEN child idea...
It's harmless. All in good fun.

Nothing wrong with that.

Rob and Kristen?
5. Together

Live it.
Learn it.

Well... if you haven't realized that
Rob and Kristen are together...
Then you just don't want to believe it.
You see things your way...
I see the Truth.

This is what I want more of in 2012
6. Thomas Sturridge
Can I get enough of him in 2012?
Doubt it.
Tom plays hard to get.
I  think he likes being the guy
behind the guy.
The guy that the camera isn't usually looking for...
He always seems surprised that people want to take his picture
I mean really?
That beautiful face.
Who doesn't want to see that?
And who doesn't want to see
more of him this coming year?


7. In all honesty?
I hope you all have a wonderful new year.
Everyone deserves happiness and love.
I hope you all have a fantastic 2012.
Be happy.
Be loved.
Don't be so serious.
Have Fun.
And remember...
It will all be OK.

Toast the New Year!

Life is good.

Until next year.

Bye for now

Hope they have a wonderful 2012, full of success, love and happiness!

And the same to all of you! Its awesome to be a part of this wonderful group of people, sane fans that all come together to enjoy each other's comments and conversation. Have a very Happy New Year everyone!

Happy New Year, Rose! If "granny" is the worst thing people can say about you then I think you're doing ok! LOL Nana Rose is adorable!

Just under 5 hrs till midnight here and my guys are already popping fireworks. There's talk of a big bonfire later. I've got lasagna in the oven and it smells so good! No big party, just a few friends.

I've had so much fun w/you all in 2011 and I'm looking forward to more good times and laughs in 2012.

Happy New Year to Grandma Rose and all Roselanders xxx

bernadette said...

Nicely said Rose! Everything written here is worth reading. Makes a lot of sense to ponder & realize that they're worth the time reading. HAPPY NEW YEAR! Hope the best of 2012 will do all of us good. Thinking of how to change for the better is the best for everyone(especially those negative thinkers). Hope they just stop hating & making stories coz it doesn't make good their life. Just stop being miserable! Right Rose?!

Barbara Fenwick said...

Great post, Rose.I don't know who wrote the post yesterday, but it was wonderful, and I agreed with everything that was written.

Your post today, Rose, was great. You are always a voice of reason among all the insanity. I always look to your words to keep me calm and sane.

I hope 2012 will be a fantastic year, filled with love, peace, and good health. I also wish the same for Rob and Kristen...only good things.

HAPPY NEW YEAR Rose and all Roselanders.

Berry said...

Happy New Year everyone! Looking forward to sharing the Rob and Kristen moments with Rose and all of Roseland in 2012! xoxo

Birdie said...

Happy New Year Rose and Roseland!
2011 was a ride and I have high hopes for 2012. Have a wonderful night and see you in the new year!

Freddie said...

I look back and am amazed to realize that it has been over a year now that I’ve been commenting on this blog. Time flies when you’re having fun – truly. It’s been wonderful to connect with so many smart, funny and kind people.

I haven’t been able to spend as much time here as I used to, but I still check in daily – to connect, if only briefly, with the people who make this virtual community what it is and also to support Rob and Kristen – I hope in a non-intrusive way.

By all accounts, 2011 was a great year. My admiration for Rob, Kristen and Tom continued to grow.

Our favourite threesome continued to flourish in their profession. They gave us some wonderful nuanced performances in Water for Elephants, Welcome to the Rileys (released on DVD in 2011) and Waiting for Forever. Rob and Kristen accomplished a huge feat in exceeding the expectations of the very demanding Twilight fan base in bringing Breaking Dawn to the big screen, and by all accounts, they are all highly sought after in their profession. The producers of SWATH obviously knew who “the fairest of them all” was (sorry couldn’t resist) when they signed Kristen, and Cronenberg couldn’t be more effusive in his praise and support for Rob.

Beyond the performances on the screen, they made us laugh. Who didn’t smile or laugh out loud when they heard Rob in interviews. He managed to make the mind-numbingly repetitive interviews a riot with his charm, wit and wild stories, and Kristen definitely demonstrated that she’s not a shy little girl, but an intelligent, young woman with an incredible (dare I say, wonderfully wicked) sense of humour.

As supporters of them we also witnessed personal growth. Kristen shone in 2011 – becoming a fashion icon (one to watch at all public appearances) and knocking everyone’s socks off with her breathtaking photo shoots. More importantly, she demonstrated a real self-confidence – one borne from being comfortable and contented with oneself. It was great to see.

I thank them for the glimpses they permit into their life and love. I remain truly happy that they found each other, and am equally pleased that Tom has found happiness with a special someone as well.

I looked back at my comments from a year ago and my wishes for Rob, Kristen and Tom for 2012 are much the same: good health; continued fulfillment in their profession; privacy and precious moments of togetherness; safety in their travels; laughter and happiness with friends and family; and of course a love that continues to grow and deepen.

To Rose, and all the wonderful ladies and gentlemen of Roseland, I wish you no less. Thank you for indulging me in this moment of sentimentality and please accept my best wishes for the New Year.

Nice post, Nana Rose :)

Happy New Year to everyone. Wherever Rob and Kristen and Tom are, I hope they have peace to celebrate in whatever way they choose.

I have had way past my limit with wine and martini's so good night all.

Anonymous said...

What a awesome post to start the New Year! 2011 has been sooooo great and I'll be missing all of the precious moments that Rob & Kristen shared together (Those things never disappear..They are always right there). Their dedication/trust/adoration and most specially the LOVE that captivates us all never changes.

Im wishing these two BEAUTIFUL and TALENTED couple a Happy New Year and i hope that there's more wonderful projects to come for both of them. Ofc their health is a must so yeah. I believe that this year will be a good one! but i can't predict it. More Happiness,Love and Success to R&K ( To Their family and friends) and to all of us! Cheers!

Happy New Year!

It Was A Very Good Year

Robbie Williams:

When I was seventeen, it was a very good year.
It was a very good year for small town girls and soft summer nights.
We'd hide from the light on the village green when I was seventeen.

When I was twenty-one, it was a very good year.
It was a very good year for city
girls who lived up the stairs
With perfume hair that came undone
when I was twenty-one.

When I was thirty-five, it was a very good year.
It was a very good year for blue-blooded girls of independent means.
We'd ride in limousines. Their chauffeurs would drive when I was thirty-five.

But now the days are short, I'm in the autumn of the year
and now I think of my life as vintage
wine from fine old kegs
From the brim to the dregs. It poured
sweet and clear. It was a very good year

Thank you/fcabralv

Don't Rain On My Parade

Barbra Streissand (2006):

Don't tell me not to fly
I've simply got to
If someone takes a spill
It's me and not you
Don't bring around the cloud
To rain on my parade

Don't tell me not to live
Just sit and putter
Life's candy and the sun's
A ball of butter
Who told you you're allowed
To rain on my parade

I'll march my band out
I'll beat my drum
And if I'm fanned out
Your turn at bat, sir
At least I didn't fake it, hat, sir
I guess I didn't make it

But whether I'm the rose of sheer perfection
A freckle on the nose of life's complexion
A Cinderella or a shine apple of an eye
I gotta fly once
I gotta try once
Only can die once, right, sir?

Ooh, life is juicy
Juicy and you see
I gotta have my bite, sir

Get ready for me love
'Cause I'm a "comer"
I simply gotta march
My heart's a drummer
Don't bring around the cloud
To rain on my parade

Yes, sir
No, sir
I'm gonna live and live now
Get what I want, I know how
All that the law will allow
One roll for the whole shebang
One throw that bell will go clang

Though I'm alone I'm a gang
Eye on the target and wham
One shot, one gun shot and bam

Hey, world, here I am...
Get ready for me life, 'cause I'm a "comer"
I simply gotta march, my heart's a drummer
Nobody, no, nobody, is gonna rain on my parade!

Thank you/barbrabliss

The Quest

Donovan Leitch:

Why veil the sun?
Why darken the water?
“Thy will be done” if you think you ought to.

No-one can see you when you’re on your own.
No-one can be you.
Take your time don't hurry;
It's alright don't worry!

You've just begun for to awaken.
Do walk, don't run!
You’re not forsaken.

No-one can free you from your own prison.
No-one can see you…
Take your time, don't hurry!
It's alright, don't worry!

Thank you/lorjim58

Rose keep kicking ass in 2012. You have defiantly earned your "kick a psycho's ass badge"

Love you all!

Happy new year Rose and everyone in Roseland!

Wishing Rob, Kristen, Tom and all of you a year full of joy, love and good health <3

sjjw said...

Happy 2012 Roseland! I hope you all had a safe, happy evening and I wish health and happiness to you for the New Year!

And Rose, for you I wish "some" improve their reading comprehension. I was appalled by the reactions I saw to your guest blogger...many really didn't get it. But what I found funny, was those who got it least, needed to heed it most. (does that make sense?) Anyway, while I found some of the reactions annoying, I truly do hope Guest Blogger's points hit home for some. I thought it was excellent!

Have a great first day of 2012 everyone!


Hope said...

HAPPY 2012 Rose & Roselanders!!!!!

Yep...it's going to be a wonderful New Year for ALL of us....especially Rob & Kristen!!
Wishing Tom and Sienna the best too.
So much to look forward to!

GO Cowboys!

Hope everyone had a fun and safe night. Wishing a spectacular 2012 to all of us and lots of Rob and Kristen new projects.

Take care

Had to delet last post...some misspelled words.

Happy New Year Rose and everyone else!!

I hope you all had a great time ringing it in whatever you did!

I wish much happiness for Rob, Kristen, Tom and each of you. Nothing matters if you don't get any happiness and joy out of it.

Here's to a great 2012 filled with good things, good health, and good times!

Robin said...

Great post, Rose. I wish you the very best of the new year. You do so much for the "fandom" and for just guiding many of the fans (no matter what their age) in growing up.
As for the insults, I so agree with you about how the unimaginative pull out the same old saws: fat, ugly, and old. The "granny" thing is so funny to me. Everyone wants to live a long and happy life, but they want to live all those years under age 30. Thank goodness they have no choice in the matter . . . if they want to live, that is!
Again, Happy New Year to you, to all of Roseland, and to all the fans of our beloved Rob and Kris. . . and Tom!

Dottie said...

Hope everyone had lots of fun celebrating last night and are enjoying this first day of 2012. :)

olivia said...

Happy New Year dear Rose and Roseland,

Beautiful sunshine this morning and all day. It will be a lovely and marvelous 2012.

DK, thank you for the wonderful music. Loved it all. The Donovan Deep Peace vid was superb. Hugs for you.

Toncit, the Vienna concert vid was delightful. Thank you. Clap! Clap!
: )

Freddie, your comments were beautiful. I join you and all of Roseland in positive and supportive well wishes for Rob and Kristen in 2012.

Hugs for y'all.
Hugs for Smitty, Gruff and Syd.
Life is good!

Super RN Gas Passer said...

Good Evening Roseland!

I just thought I would peek in real quick and what a lovely surprise ...a new post and comments...All completely delightful....love you FREDDIE:)

Happy New Year to ALL !!!

*I*Believe* said...

Hi Roselanders!
Hope your first day of 2012 was wonderful!

Super~Our team is playing tomorrow. Will you be watching? Go Cocks!

Olivia~ Are you ready to go back?

Wave to Dottie :)

This is really funny...my veri word is "sperm" lol

DreamerKind said...

Again, Happy New Year! Hoping you had a fab celebration! I did! Need some more sleep to catch up.


Rhonda said...

Morning all,

I hope everyone has enjoyed a nice start to the New Year. If you celebrated I hope you had a great time and didn't feel the after-effects from too much merry making ;)

Who's making resolutions?

Olivia & IB- Are you back to school today?

It's cold and blustery here this morning--snow is on the way :)

Have a happy Monday everyone. Lots of love..

*I*Believe* said...

Rhonda~I am enjoying every last moment of my Holiday Break. We go back to school tomorrow. I LOVE being home. Enjoy your snow for we have had none but a little dusting that quickly melts.

Have a great day everyone!

Freddie said...

I hope everyone is well and is having a good start to the New Year.

DK - belated Hugs

Olivia and Super - thanks for the kind words, and Super, love ya too.

Hi to everyone else. I hope we get a chance to chat soon...

Have a good day all.

Freddie said...

Oh and IB - enjoy your day off. It's my last day off too. I'm off to hit the stores.

Rhonda - hang in there with the snow.

olivia said...

Good morning dear Rose and Roseland,

Peaceful, private and calm. So very good!

**Wave** and a ((hug)) to Rhonda, IB and Freddie.

We have the strangest semester break schedule ever. Worked a few days longer than usual in Dec. and now do not return until a week from today, the 9th. Our Christmas/Winter break has never extended so far into January. I have worked a good number of hours more at the boutique since some of the college girls have gone home for the holidays.

IB, hope you were able to enjoy your vacay. Once we get back to class there is so much to do and it seems like we just left yesterday.

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

olivia said...

Oh, and Freddie, too ....enjoy that retail therapy on your last day of vacay!
: D
Make sure to stop for a lovely lunch somewhere. For me, that is always an important and enjoyable part of those shop ' til you drop afternoons.

Dottie said...

Rhonda, Send some of that snow my way!

It's always a little sad & at the same time a relief when the holidays are over.

IB & Freddie, Enjoy your last day of vacation.

Olivia, Enjoy the rest of your time off. The school yr seems to fly by after Christmas break and summer is here before we know it.

My sons have a couple of friends from out of town staying w/us this week. Too much testosterone and they are eating me out of house and home! :P

Have a great day!

Super RN Gas Passer said...

IB... I will watch if possible. I am on call today and currently at the hospital on a lunch break

RHONDA. I hope it is a good snow! We are having a beautiful sunny but cold day here. 60ish. Lol. ( I realize. That's not cold to those of you living above the Mason -Dixon line).

Take care Everybody!

Annie said...

Happy New Year!

Very best of wishes to everyone for a peaceful, wonderful and happy 2012.

wig4usc said...

Happy New Year to all my friends in Roseland! I look forward to my visits here, its really the only blog I frequent, and enjoy you all!

Here's to a great 2012 for all of us!

Sierra said...

Happy new year everyone.

I am glad that I haven't seen pics of Rob and Kristen for New Years. They wanted to stay low key and they got to do so.

As did i. I just had a dinner with a few friends and family and it was a change. I liked it.

Wish all of you the best and be blessed.
bye loves!

Teeth said...

I'm in a little bit of a dilemma ladies, and I hope you're willing to help me out.

I have approximately 5 dollars left on my iTunes gift card. I can't decide if I should spend it on (A) rent The Bad Mother's Handbook- which I've never seen and am getting fustrated by the bits on youtube. (B)Rent Water for Elephants- one of the best movies I've seen Rob in, or (C) buy some great music.

I'm so impulsive, it's almost a disease :/


DreamerKind said...

Good Morning, once more...

Go Rob, that's why we're here, and he is everywhere, so can't lose, kiddo.

Thanks, I aim to please.

Hug received. Hope you got my mine.

Just got home from seeing "Sherlock Holmes" and I
loved this one, too.


ali mac said...

@ DK I went to see Sherlock the other night and loved it too!! It was as good as the first one maybe even better. I nearly she a tear at the bit on the ravine!!

Super RN Gas Passer said...

Good Morning ROSELAND ...

DK ,ALI MAC and anybody else I missed.... We went to see Sherlock Holmes And I thought it was fantastic . We went to see Mission Impossible on NYE. And I have to say it greatly exceeded my expectations (hubs wanted to see it)

Have a great day :)

ali mac said...

good morning Super, your on the go bright and early this morning!! I'm pleased you enjoyed Sherlock. The characters are great! I watched WFE last night (Rob looking so yummy)

I have had a great day cleaning and putting away Christmas decorations, I only have the main tree left to take down everything else is packed up and ready for the roof space :0)

Super RN Gas Passer said...

Hi ALI MAC... I have all the decorations down finally and am looking forward to getting back to my reorganization of the house...I have had a lady come once a month to help me go through every drawer, cabinet, and closet....it has been cathartic ... Lol. I am on my lunch break from my business and squeezing in a pedicure. Hope you have has a great day!

Melinda said...

Hi everyone! Just popping by to say hello. Things are slowly getting back to normal now that the holidays are over.

IB- How did you fare with the kiddos coming back from vacay? I hope they eased you back in nicely...

Olivia- Enjoy the remaining time before you head back to work.

For those of you that have seen Sherlock Holmes. I saw it too. I thought it was pretty good. I have an affection for RDJ. It started back with "Ally McBeal".

Anywoo, hope you all are well. Need to catch up soon! Take care...

Super RN Gas Passer said...

DK. Are you up ?

DreamerKind said...

Good Day!

Been reading about the Belgium showing of Bel Ami. Reviews are very positive! Hoping that it does come out in the US around 3/2. Lots of goodies coming with Rob, Kristen, Tom, and Dakota in 2012.

DreamerKind said...

I am up. What's up?

Super RN Gas Passer said...

DK...Nothing much. Hubs has a cold and baby was sick with one last week. What have you been up to? Did you have a nice NYE?

DreamerKind said...

Too bad about the family having colds-they are miserable.

Yes, it was a lowkey NYE with my sister and a hundred others, that I didn't know. Hoteling, drinking, eating, swiimming, laughing, not in that order.


Super RN Gas Passer said...

DK... Nothin very exciting . You may have seen my earlier post...it was dinner and a movie...were you actually "swimming" or were you swimming? (from champagne)

Super RN Gas Passer said...

DK..I will catch up with you soon...Got to get up shortly and get ready for work. It is freaking 18 degrees this morning!

DreamerKind said...

Have a good, cold day! It's 27 degrees here. How ironic, that we're warmer than you in the South.

I did actually swim in a pool, lol. No funny stories to tell..;)

*I*Believe* said...

lol....you girls should try below zero with wind chills :)

Super RN Gas Passer said...

Hi IB... I am ALMOST embarrased to complain being that you were literally buried in snow last winter! We certainly are not prepared for that kind of weather DOWN here:)

Have a great day everybody!

Annie said...

Good morning Roseland!

It's bitingly cold here.........it's 13 degrees.
@DK.......I'll take your 27! :)

Take care everybody and a feel better to those fighting a cold.

Kenzz said...

Good morning, ladies! Bitingly cold here this week...just ran out for the dogs' food, and I'm still wearing my coat and mittens in the house cuz I can't warm up! haha (& if you're impressed with my mad typing skills with 2 mittened fingers, you're right on!)

I just reread our favorite guest blogger's Don't Feed The Beast post, and have one thing to say... AMEN!

Hope Rose, Syd, Smitty & Gruff are enjoying the beginning of what I believe will be a phenomenal 2012 for them...

Take care, and stay warm & well Roselanders...

Maria said...

You're in good company Kenzz...its now 19 degrees in southern NH and my hands, feet and legs are still cold!

DreamerKind said...

Happy Birthday January lovelies (myself included)

Wine break!
