Rob and Kristen- Love Is Here To Stay

This is kinda how I feel after the past couple of days.
It's been absolutely great
but it's all come so fast!

Oh how I adore you...

There has been SO much bullshit talk about Rob
never working again...
All those wonderful people who call themselves fans
(although to be honest... I'm not sure what they are fans OF)
So many were writing him off...
Claiming that his zealous fanbase was turning off people
from wanting to work with him
And now he not only has
"Mission: Black List"
(Which sounds VERY cool btw)
It was announced today that Rob has joined
"The Rover"
(Which also sounds quite interesting...)

Two movies in 2 days.
Rob has shown that he knows EXACTLY
what he is doing.
People are always so quick to judge him and his decisions
But he knows what he wants
And he knows how to get to where he wants to go.
My mind boggles at the assumption that Robert
is this blathering goofball
who just merrily goes along in whatever direction
people point him in...
Do people NOT listen to him speak?
It's like he has so many thoughts going through his head
And he ponders and thinks
And man...
He's so fucking intelligent.
Why can't people give Robert some damn credit?

Robert knows what he is doing.
Not only in his career...
But in his relationships.
Listen to him.
Look at him.
He tells you without really trying.
He talks about his views on relationships.
He talks about Kristen ALL the time.
And he wears his emotions on his face.
It's all there.
All of it.

The bottom line is...
Whenever Kristen is near Rob
He will probably be looking at her.
With complete adoration.
With total admiration.
With absolute love.
And with a smile that lights up his whole face...


And our Kristen?
Hasn't she been positively GLOWING lately?

She taped Kimmel today...
Looking drop dead gorgeous
no matter what she wears.
But she is just FULL of smiles.
Overflowing with happiness.
That's it.
Kristen looks satiated.

And really...
Why shouldn't she be gloriously happy right now?
She's young
She's a working actress
with a huge movie coming out in June
and another one in Cannes
And of course...
She has the love of one of the most desired men
on the face of the planet right now.
Not that it matters to her what other people think...
She just follows her own heart.
She doesn't see the Rob we see.
The 'movie star' public Rob
She sees the guy who makes her laugh...
Who sings her songs on his guitar
The guy who protects her
and is there for her.
The guy who eats the food she cooks...
Even if he's not sure what it is.
The guy who is passionate about a lot of things
in his life...
But none as much as his love for her.
That's HER Rob.

There you have it.

It's going to be a busy few weeks...
(Take a peek at the calendar so you don't miss anything)
We are going to be overwhelmed once in a while
with all the interview and appearances
and pictures and movies...
But its a good kinda feeling.
When you eagerly anticipate what will happen next.
And something is always around the corner.
And its ALWAYS good stuff...
Happy stuff.
Twirly stuff.

This post is brought to you by LOVE

Robert Loves Kristen
Kristen Loves Robert

And I... Of course...

Thomas Sturridge.

I do.
I adore him.
And he's going to Cannes...
With Rob and Kristen

We ain't seen nothing yet.

Until next time.

Bye for now

Birdie said...

Wonderful post,Rose. I think you said it all. I can remember thinking way back that this might all fade away when Twilight wrapped up,instead it just gets better all the time. Amazing young couple, these two. I so hope we get a few pics of our Trio in Cannes.

Morning DK! I'm off to work.

TGIF, Roseland!

angelica1 said...

Hello, everyone!
Great post, Rose. Thank you.
This month is going to be crazy. I'm so happy for them.
Ps: Rose, can you give us a little warning when you post pics? I think I died looking at those smiles, even though I've seen those pics a billion times.

It's a beautiful sunny day here and I'm not going to spend it at home!

Enjoy your weekend! :)

Freddie said...

Hi everyone,

I hope everyone is well. Thanks for the new post Rose.

Groovie – well said. I totally agree.

I’m so happy for Rob and Kristen about all of their upcoming releases and projects. It’s so nice to see all their hard work pay off. It sounds like it will be a particularly busy time for them in the next month, so I hope they travel safely and manage to find a few calm, private moments in the storm.

Olivia – I hope you too find some calm in your busy time as you wrap up school.

Hi to Groovie, DK, ali mac, Super, Birdie, Angelica, Rhonda, Martha, Isabella, Kay, Berry, Feels07 and all of the other regulars. Hope to talk to you soon.

Dottie said...

Happy Friday! This post makes me all sappy and excited for what's to come.

Much love to all the regs & to our sweet trio!

katy said...

Hello Roseland,

Excellent post, Rose!

I am beyond happy and excited about Rob and Kristen new future projects. I think they are both doing, excellent careers decisions for themselves, by choosing these challeging and interesting projects, and with wich I believe will allow them to show their diversity as actors. I know that they are going to be brilliant. Always SO very proud of both of them. They both deserve every wonderful thing that is happening to them.

Also, wishing the very best of everything to the lovely Mr. Thomas Sturridge!!!

Now, come to me, Cannes, Cosmopolis, OTR and SWATH!!! May is going to be AMAZING. CANNOT WAIT!!!

Hope you are all well and happy. Take care.

Litmom said...

Rose, dear -
I just KNEW you'd post today! After this PLETHORA a delicious goodness the past couple of days, a Rose Post was due!

Such excitement in the air! Just a buzz! Both of Rob's new films look like brilliant choices on his part. Quite the smart young man (he always does remind me of the theatrical intellectuals I knew in college - my brain never could quite keep up).

And precious girl Kristen - loved seeing her beautiful, smiling face leaving JK. Looking forward to seeing the show on Monday. I do love his humor and the way he interacts with R & K. Also, can't wait for Leno tonight!

Wow - the weeks ahead promise so much goodness for all!

olivia, where are you - I want to hear your catchphrase... because it is so true!

Happy Friday to all of you! The weekend is right around the corner - and the closer I get to my summer vacation, the giddier I get!

Leni said...

Brilliant post, Rose!

I'm so excited for Rob and Kristen :)

Bel Ami was great and they also showed the SWATH & the BD 2 trailer!

Have a great day everybody :)

Annie said...

Good afternoon all!
What a wonderful start to the month of May with the abundance of Rob and Kristen news.

I'll be sure to find my way to the MET on Monday!
Spending the day with my friend and her twin boys (10 months old)

Have a great day everybody. :)

Barbara Fenwick said...

I was so happy to hear about Rob's new movies. I had no doubt that he would have a movie soon, but two is wonderful, and both of them sound so good. I am looking forward to them, plus Kristen has a new movie....all good.

Kristen looks so happy whenever you see her picture. I know all is right in her world, which makes me so happy.

It is all wonderful. Have a good weekend Roselanders. Take care.

Hope said...


Just read your post and loved every word. As you say, Rob knows exactly what he is doing and I am thrilled about his 2 new film projects! Rob in a uniform...no words.

Looking forward to seeing Kristen on Leno tonight!

Have a great weekend everyone.

olivia said...

Dear Rose,

Thank for for the beautiful post.

To communicate with a look, a glance, or a deep gaze.....without saying a word with that someone who is your best friend, love of your life and soul mate .......in such an honest, pure, dedicated and deeply emotional manner....... and to know that the feeling is truly mutual....... is a precious and wonderous gift given to each other.

This is for Rob and Kristen. Performed by Diana Krall when she was in Paris.
It is, of course, also a small giftie for all the lovely Roselanders. Enjoy!


Thank you Freddie. ((Hugs)) for you being so kind. Last week and the next two are the busiest for my wonderful students.

(A bit envious of those who have VOD. I will wait patiently until next month for Bel Ami. )

Have a nice evening. Am trying to finish a book I've been reading for the last month. Almost there. Will see if I am awake for Leno.

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

Feels07 said...

I'm watching some pics of Kristen on Leno and she's glowing. Oh my God, she's so beautiful! I don't know why her beauty still amazes me

Melinda said...

It's the weekend! Hallelujah!!

Fun post with lots of excitement in the air! This is what it should always be about. Love and supporting two lovely people and their funny, funny friend!

Is anyone able to be around Monday night say 7ish EST for a chat fest? A few rounds of M/F/K and good old fashioned girl talk sounds just about right...

Wishing all in Roseland a wonderful and relaxing weekend!

Dottie said...

Hey Melinda! I'll try to be here Monday for the chat fest. It will be nice to catch up w/everyone.

I just watched Kristen on Leno. What a doll! And the SWATH clip looked amazing.

Have a great week end, Roseland!

Leni said...

Kristen was adorable on Leno <3

I'm spending the weekend with my best friend (she lives about 3 hours away from me, so we don't see each other that often).

The chat fest sounds great, I don't have to work on Tuesday so maybe I'll be able to stay up ;)

Have a great weekend everyone :)

wig4usc said...

Happy twirling, Rose!

So Beautiful Or So What

Paul Simon:

I’m going to make a chicken gumbo
Toss some sausage in the pot
I’m going to flavor it with okra
Cayenne pepper to make it hot

You know life
Is what we make of it
So beautiful
Or so what

I’m going to tell my kids
A bedtime story
A play without a plot
Will it have a happy ending?
Maybe yeah, maybe not

I tell them life
Is what you make of it
So beautiful or so what

So beautiful
So beautiful
So what

I’m just a raindrop in a bucket
A coin dropped in a slot
I am an empty house on Weed Street
Across the road from the vacant lot

You know life is wha
You make of it
So beautiful or so what

Ain’t it strange
The way we’re ignorant
How we seek out bad advice

How we jigger it and figure it
Mistaking value for the price
And play a game with time and love
Like pair of rolling dice
So beautiful
So beautiful
So what

Four men on the balcony
Overlooking the parking lot
Pointing at a figure
In the distance

Dr. King has just been shot
And the sirens long melody
Singing Savior Pass Me Not

Thank you/OtterFreak

DreamerKind said...

Sounds like you found a love that will back you up and watch out for you, although at times, you must rebel. Rebel our way, here on Roseland, we've always wished you well and been there.

I learned that I deprived my son of "cheese" last night and have created a great need in his 31 years for cheese.

Cheese Nachos, (Yo, Rob) must have a half pound of cheese on them to taste right. Forgive me. I didn't know. So failed as a Mama. That's life.

More music to atone.

DreamerKind said...

For Rob To Think About


Paul Simon:

I'm workin' on my rewrite
That's right
Gonna change the ending
Throw away the title
Toss it in the trash

Every minute after midnight
All the time I'm spending
Is just for workin'on my rewrite
Gonna turn it into cash

I been workin' at the Car Wash
I consider it my day job
'Cause it's really not a pay job
But that's where I am

Everybody says "The old guy
Workin'at the Car Wash?"
Hasn't got a brain cell left
Since Vietnam

But I say
Help me, help me
Help me, help me
Thank you!
I'd no idea
That you were there

When I said help me, help me
Help me, help me
Thank you
For listening to my prayer

I'll eliminate the pages
Where the father has a breakdown
And he has to leave the family
But he really meant no harm

Gonna substitute a car chase
And a race across the rooftops
Where the father
Saves the children
And he holds them in his arms

Help me, help me
Help me, help me
Thank you!
I'd no idea
That you were there

Thank you/NewYork2Havana

DreamerKind said...

Kristen Mastered Horse Without Joy


Beth Williams:

You say you're not good enough
Feelin' old tired
And all that stuff

You don't think
You'll try your wings
Cause you'd surely fail
Full of fear and self doubt

It overflows and comes out
Sayin' you're homely
You're unworthy
And your skin's too pale

Stop listening to voices
Stop listening to voices
Inside your head
Stop listening to voices
Stop I said

You think the world's mad
At you anyway
Cause you never do anything right
That's what you say

So on a lonely ship you sail
You and your thoughts
In a deep dark well
Must be someway out of there
And if I know
Do tell

Stop listening to voices
Stop listening
To voices inside your head

Stop listening to voices
Stop listening to voices
Stop I said

And the little girl
Standing in the corner
Hides her face
And hangs her head in shame

No one ever thought to warn her
She would carry carry the memory
Of hands and voices unrestrained

My advice if you care
Ignore the chatter from upstairs
Those childhood voices
Take you nowhere
But on the tour despair

Lift your head hold it high
Roll up your sleeves
Look at the sky
Give it all you got
Go on now

You say I'm not good enough
I'm old
And all that stuff

Thank you/BethWilliamsMusic

DreamerKind said...

Is there much more tasty than Naan bread and butter? Not to me, not tonight!

Perhaps, Rob is more tasty! Alas, not being able to watch the whole of "Bel Ami" on Dish Network On Demand, which resisted mine, yet I saw plenty via clips, for he is Georges, not to everyone's taste, however, it is so.

Last night, at the niece's 21st bar celebration,someone sprayed me heartily over my Chanel Allure with Fiorella (?) misting spray to clear my bad energy (damn parfum which failed to lure for big $$$).

Yet, there I stood/sat in abject
innocence, per my son, smelling like a club dancer coated with baby powder. I had arrived, somewhere, no doubt.

I felt like a natural woman..still do and, si, I am.

Syd Is Home Wherever


Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros:

Alabama, Arkansas
I do love my Ma & Pa
Not the way that I do love you

Holy Moley
You're the apple of my eye
Girl, I've never loved one like you

Man, oh man
You're my best friend
I scream it to the nothingness
There ain't nothin' that I need

Well, hot & heavy, pumpkin pie,
Chocolate candy, Jesus Christ
There ain't nothin
Please me more than you

Ah, home
Let me come home
Home is wherever I'm with you
La la la la, take me home
Baby, I'm coming home

I'll follow you into the park,
Through the jungle
Through the dark
Girl, I've never loved one like you

Moats & boats & waterfalls,
Alleyways & pay phone calls
I've been everywhere with you
That's true

We laugh until we think we'll die
Barefoot on a summer night
Nothin' new is sweeter
Than with you

And in the streets we're running
Free like only you and me
Geez, you're somethin' to see

Ahh, home
Let me come home
Home is wherever I'm with you

La la la la
Take me home
Baby, I'm coming home

Do you remember that day
You fell out of my window?”
I sure do
You came jumping out after me”

Well, you fell on the concrete
And nearly broke your ass
And you were bleeding
All over the place

And I rushed you off
To the hospital
Do you remember that?”
Yes, I do”

Well, there's something
I never told you about that night.”
What didn't you tell me?”

While you were sitting
In the backseat
Smoking a cigarette you thought
Was going to be your last

I was falling deep
Deeply in love
With you
And I never told you
Til just now”

Now I know”
Ah, home
Let me come home
Home is wherever
I'm with you

Ah, home
Let me come home
Home is when
I'm alone with you

Thank you/hoedoro

Ha, ha, ha! Lots of mistakes in lyrics but don't care.

May It Be


May it be an evening star
Shines down upon you

May it be when darkness falls
Your heart will be true

You walk a lonely road
Oh how far you are from home

Mornie utulie (Darkness has come)
Believe and you will find your way

Mornie alantie
(Darkness has fallen)
A promise lives within you now

May it be the shadow's call
Will fly away

May it be your journey on
To light the day

When the night is overcome
You may rise to find the sun

Mornie utulie (Darkness has come)
Believe and you will find your way

Mornie alantie
(Darkness has fallen)
A promise lives within you now

Thank you/Malmern

Hope all of you are having a beautiful weekend. Too short, but alas, gotta make a living...

Hi SJJW!!!! Glad to hear your news. I just got back from a girls weekend also...I have eaten so much good food that I don't know if I can eat again for days! Lol

Hi LITMOM, EM, RHONDA, DK and anybody else "Out There" tonight!

DreamerKind said...

Hey, sweets!

Best bday wishes to you, too! Sounds like you celebrated heartily.

You are adorbs!

Thanks again for your thanks. Enya goes way back and was such a new sound, ita. Paul Simon is still my senior crush, as then I meant high school, now I mean me/him.

Saw this quote on Robsten Angels:
"I have affixed to me the dust and dirt of countless ages...who am I to disturb history?" - Pig-Pen (the Peanuts character)

Love And Blessings

Paul Simon:

Love and blessings
Simple kindness
Fell like rain on thirsty land

Fields and gardens
Long abandoned
Came to life in dust and sand

Lover's lips
Sweet as honey
Touched as if
Old love was new

Banker's pockets overflowing
With gold and money
Prophesies of wealth
Come true

Ain't no song like an old song, Charlie

There ain't no song
Like an old song

There ain't no time
Like a good time Charlie

Ain't no times
Like the good times, Charlie

Everywhere you look
Anywhere you go

Everybody working for the

Can't get enough of the

If the summer kept a secret
It was heaven's lack of rain
Golden days and amber sunsets
Let the scientists complain

Came the autumn
Drained of color
Ghosts in the water
Beg for more

Maple trees
Just a little bit duller
Than the memory
Of the year before

In a word, or in an image
Something called me
From my sleep

Love and blessings
Simple kindness
Ours to hold
But not to keep

Thank you/ataxicangel

DreamerKind said...

Sure love that Tom Sturridge, and his daring hairdo! What a confident style, he wears it well.

Super RN Gas Passer said...

ROSE...I meant to say that the first pic you posted of Rob in your post from Friday...I have that very picture in my locker at work. It's titled "Red Caroet Romeo" hahaha...and HOW!!!

Hi DK...I'm fixin to call ya...

Super RN Gas Passer said...

Oops...that was supposed to say Red CARPET Romeo. Lol

beacullen said...

Had to pop in, I watched Bel Ami Fri and Sat...3 times lol. Let me just say, Rob kicks ass. It's not really my kind of movie, but just watching his plotting and scheeming was so entertaining. If you get the chance, definately see it, I think it's still available on Amazon and Itunes for rental. So GOOD! I am even more excited to see Cosmopolis, he's just doing so well. Way to go Rob!

Lightnin' Strikes

Lou Christie (1966):

Listen to me, baby
You gotta understand
You're old enough to know
The makings of a man

Listen to me, baby
It's hard to settle down
Am I asking too much
For you to stick around

Every boy wants a girl
He can trust to the very end
Baby, that's you
Won't you wait but 'til then

When I see lips
Beggin' to be kissed
I can't stop
I can't stop myself
Lightning is striking again

Nature's takin' over
My one-track mind
Believe it or not
You're in my heart all the time

All the girls are sayin'
That you'll end up a fool
For the time being, baby
Live by my rules

When I settle down
I want one baby on my mind
Forgive and forget
And I'll make up for all lost time

If she's put together fine
And she's readin' my mind
I can't stop
I can't stop myself

Lightning is striking again
Lightning is striking again
And again and again and again

There's a chapel in the pines
Waiting for us around the bend
Picture in your mind
Love forever, but 'til then

If she gives me a sign
That she wants to make time
I can't stop

I can't stop myself
Lightning is striking again
And again and again and again

Thank you/jrocuts

To have you around

You know the secrets
I could never tell
And when I'm quiet
You break through my shell

Don't feel the need
To do a rebel yell
Cuz you keep
My feet on the ground

You don't get angry
When I change the plan
Somehow you're never
Out of second chances

Won't say I told you
When I'm wrong again
I'm so lucky that I found
A true friend
You're here till the end

True friends
Will go to the ends of the earth
Till they find the things you need

Friends hang on
Through the ups and the downs
Cuz they've got someone
To believe in

You're a true friend,
You're here till the end
You pull me aside
When somethin' ain't right

Talk to me now
And into the night
Till it's alright again

You're a true friend
Don't need to pretend
Oh, you're a true friend

Thank you/mileyroxmyworld4ever

Birdie said...

Morning,DK! True friends indeed.
Hope everyone has a great day and am looking forward to seeing the beautiful Kristen Stewart tonight!

DreamerKind said...

Morning Birdie. Indeed.

Have yourself a merry little Monday!

Annie said...

Good morning all.

Have a great Monday everyone.........Will be heading to the MET after work to hopefully catch a glimpse of Kristen.

So sorry that the New York paps were their usual asshole selves when she arrived. No one should be harassed like that.
I hope she enjoys herself here.

Melinda said...

Good Morning and happy Monday,

I hope it was a great weekend for all. I had a girls weekend as well. We had a great time.

Em- You never fail to make me smile with your comments. Your BF sounds like a good man.

DK- I hope the move went well. If I remember correctly it was this weekend. Thanks for the songs. I'm always amazed at what you find.

Annie- I hope you are able to get a chance to see Kristen tonight. Be careful b/c I'm sure it will be crazy.

I see Tom and Sienna are enjoying an Italian getaway. I hope they are enjoying themselves in relative peace.

Excited to see what Kristen will be wearing to the Met gala tonight. Glad they will be having a live stream. I hope Kristen has a great night tonight.

I'll be popping in around 7:30 to see what's shakin. Hope everyone has a great Monday.

Dottie said...

Happy Met Monday! I'm excited to see all the beautiful gowns tonight, especially Kristen's.

DK, Are you in your new place now?

Annie, Good luck tonight! Sounds like an adventure.

Melinda, See you tonight :)

Cyber hugs to all!

ali mac said...

DK Thanks for reminding me about Enya, I haven't listened to her music in years!! "Marble Halls" is my favourite Enya song, I think it brings out the old fashioned romantic in me :)

Looking forward to seeing some new photos of Kristen tonight all dressed up! and I really can't wait to see her on the Graham Norton show on Friday night.

Annie said...

Melinda and Dottie.......Thanks, it always is a little crazy. :)

Litmom said...

Oooh, Annie! Good luck and have fun!

Annie said...

I made it..........Looking at Carey Mulligan right now.

Annie said...

Tim Tebow!

Annie said...

Zac Posen just blew kisses to us!! :)

Annie said...

Still waiting for Kristen.

Melinda said...

Hey Annie-

I hope you are able to get pics. I'm watching the live stream. Love Christina Ricci's dress the best so far.

Annie said...

Melinda: I thought that huge bow would overwhelm her small figure but it doesn't.

Super RN Gas Passer said...

Hi Everyone

I'm sitting here watching live Met Gala feed. I have seen Ashley Greene and Dakota Fanning. No Kris yet but I swear I think I saw Robs bodyguard on the Red Carpet a moment ago. Hmmmmm. BEAUTIFUL GOWNS!!!

Also BEACULEN. I'm downloading Bel Ami on my IPad as I write this. Thank you for the info !!!!!

Super RN Gas Passer said...

ANNIE. Are you still there??

Melinda said...

Hey Super...

Annie said...

Still here Super.......Waiting on Kristen. :)

Leni said...

Hi guys!

Annie - So cool that you get to be there :)

So far I think that I liked Christina Ricci and Ashley Greene's dresses best!

Melinda said...

Any favorites so far? I want to be wowed b/c it's the Met FFS.

These photographers are cracking me up with their comments.

Melinda said...

Hi Leni....I like AG's too. She's a pretty girl...

Leni said...

Hi Melinda :)

Super RN Gas Passer said...


I think I am just seeing her right now. Just a snippet. Her hair is in a pony tail if that's her!!

Leni said...

Hi Super :)

Melinda said...

Kristen in a zebra print!! Can't wait to see a picture!

Super RN Gas Passer said...


I saw Daniel Radcliffe about 5 minutes ago. Lots of stars there. Beautiful clothes. geez!!!

Annie said...

Liking Emma Stone's dress

Melinda said...

Emma is cute. That is all.

Some of the guests there confuse me...

Leni said...

Loved Emma's dress :)

Leni said...

First pic at Robstenation :)

Super RN Gas Passer said...


This live feed is very poor quality. Omg. There she is. Hair is down. Gorgeous dress!!!

Leni said...

Kristen on the Vogue livestream GORGEOUS!!!

Super RN Gas Passer said...

Guys. I love the dress. Some animal print. I love that. Then color blocks She is rockin it!

ROSE. Where are you. ??? What do ya think???

Annie said...

Loved Kristen's dress!
Will see if I got good quality pics and video when I get home.

Super RN Gas Passer said...

MELINDA. Art imitating life. Life imitating art. Confusing ... Sometimes!!! There's Sarah Jessica Parker in Valentino. Kind of a soft floral

Super RN Gas Passer said...

Congrats ANNIE!

Annie said...

Many of the outfits did not impress........Sone were just WTF!

Leni said...

Annie - agree with you

Melinda said...


Totes agree. Why can't they understand you don't have to do WTF to wow a crowd.

As for Ms. Stewart. LOVE this much more than last's years. It fit and didn't overwhelm.

So beautiful rocking the RC.

Dottie said...

Hey gang! I am thrilled with Kristen's entire look tonight! She was a show stopper. :)

How is everyone?

Annie, I enjoyed your play-by-play. It's always fun when we have our own Roseland eyes and ears on the scene!

Melinda said...

Hi Dottie!

Leni said...

Hi Dottie :)

Dottie said...

Hi Leni and Melinda :)

Melinda said...

Now that the Met gala rc is over what's everyone doing tonight?

Dottie said...

Melinda, I don't have anything going on tonight. Just relax and hang with the fam. You?

Leni said...

Melinda - I will be going to bed in a while ;)

Melinda said...

Leni- I don't know how you are still up. You aren't working tomorrow right?

Dottie- Doing the same thing as you. Planning on seeing The Avengers tomorrow night. Heard it's really good.

Dottie said...

Did Super fly away? I missed her.

Annie said...

I'm home.

Dottie said...

I think my boys are seeing it tomorrow too, Melinda. I've heard good things.

Dottie said...

Hey Annie! Tell us about it!

Leni said...

Melinda - Yes, I don't have to work tomorrow :)I'm probably going to see the Avengers this weekend

Melinda said...

I see ppl on twitter are mixed about the whole look.

I think the Met Gala used to be the one place you could get away with going with a "whoa" outfit. Not anymore.

Most women there go with the "pretty" look. It's boring.

I like that K did something edgier and pretty sure people aren't saying "what was she thinking"...

Rhonda said...

Hi Melinda, Annie, Leni, Super & Dottie...

I'm late to the party but I wanted to drop in for a quick minute. Hope you all had a good day :)

Kenzz said...

Watched the Met livestream, what an interesting mix of people!

When I saw Dean I thought I was imagining it... Glad others saw him, too!

Kristen, as usual, dazzled. Love the short dress vs the full-length, better to showcase those beautiful gams of hers!

Can't wait to see if Rose has any comments on an altercation I witnessed on Twitter today.... Interesting, thought-provoking, and a test of ethical boundaries between the two parties...

Hugs to Smitty & Gruff.. My money's always on you, Syd!

Leni said...

Melinda - You're right. The pretty look is boring.. especially at something like the Met Gala.

I love that Kristen experiments a lot with fashion :)

Melinda said...

Hi Rhonda,

Hope you are having a good day as well. Glad you popped by...

Kenzz said...

Hi to Rhonda, Dottie, Leni, Annie, and Super (if you're still out there")

Leni said...

Hi Rhonda & Kenzz :)

Kenzz said...

Ooops, and Melinda!!

Melinda said...

Hey Kenzz!

I saw Dean as well. He was looking dapper. It's always funny to see him with someone other than Rob. I wonder who he was doing security detail for?

Dottie said...

Hi Rhonda!

Melinda, I think the fashion critics are going to love what K wore. I hope her foot is better. She's got a lot of heel wearing to do in the coming weeks! I'm always excited to see what she will wear to the promos and premieres.

OK is it just me or do JT and his fiancee seem... blah? He never looks like he is all that into her IMO. (no offense if you all are fans)

Dottie said...

Hi Kenzz!

Annie said...

Hey Dottie: :)

I was disappointed in many of the outfits. Lots of gold and red though, some white.

It was a long wait for Kristen, almost 8:00 PM when she appeared and people were screaming her name when they saw her.

I was happy to see many of the celebrities acknowledge the fans........Daniel Radcliffe, Paula Patton, Zac Posen, Ryan seacrest.
Rachel Zoe (the stylist) waved to us too.

Melinda said...


I think the same thing about them. IMO, she has him on a short leash. I'm not a fan of hers at all.

Then you have HW Ken and Barbie (aka Ryan S. and his GF)....blah...

Kenzz said...

Melinda, it appeared to me that he was looking after a young gal in a pink poufy dress... (forgive my descrip, all you fashionistas!)

Dottie, I agree... We've just been spoiled by the way Rob looks at Kris!

How's everyone's week starting out?

Leni said...

Dottie - I agree with you about those two..

Annie said...

Melinda: I agree. The Met Gala used to be where you'd go "wow" now it just seems most of the attendees dress as they would for the Oscars......,,,,,,So boring!

Many people there tonight thought the same....,,,,,There were not many "wow" moments tonight.

Rhonda said...

Annie- it's cool that you got to be there. I just now saw a pic of Kristen. She looked beautiful, and I loved her dress!

Melinda- thanks, it wasn't so much a bad day...just really long, and a little crazy ;)

Hi Kenzz :)

Annie said...

Darn, all of my pics of Kristen are from a side angle.

Dottie said...

Kenzz, you are probably right! JT seemed to be more focused on himself and the photogs. In contrast, R's focus is usually on K, even with all that craziness going on around them. LOL

It's weird to see Dean w/someone else, isnt it? Like he's two-timing! haha

Super RN Gas Passer said...


KENZZ and DOTTIE. I'm back. I had to clean up the kitchen and fold some towels. KENZZ. What happened on Twitter... another Twitter Meltdown?

Leni said...

Dottie - LOL at Dean two-timing.. it's really weird to see him at an event without Rob!

Ok, good night girls :)

Annie said...

'night Leni.

Melinda said...

Rhonda- Hopefully the crazy work days aren't something that is going to be frequent.

Kenzz- Ha,ha! I like your fashion terminology!

Annie- Hope you got some great pics!

Dottie said...

Night Leni!

Hi Super!

Kenzz said...

Dean...two-timing... Never thought I'd see it! Lol

Super, welcome back! Don't want to bring the drama here, but suffice to say not a meltdown but a disagreement betwixt and between two very opinionated friends.

Kenzz said...

Nite nite Leni

Melinda said...

Night Leni! Happy dreams...

Whoops Annie- didn't see your comment before I posted. That sucks...

Super RN Gas Passer said...

DOTTIE. I agree about JT. But very few men.. Hmmm... I can't think of many... That give the attention that Rob does to Kristen. Such a special thing. You know they say that " guys. " are not really that Into us females. Lol

LENI. Good Night:)

Melinda said...

I think Dean has two-timed with Jen Aniston too! Okay that sounds really funny.

DreamerKind said...

Good evening everyone! I'm just popping in between taking loads to the new place. Movers come Tues. afternoon. Must be out of old into new Weds. night.

Thought K looked beautiful as usual, unique, original, edgy and the fit was perfect.

So many lovely gowns I saw, that my head is spinning. Hope Joan Rivers does a critique show, for she slays me (and probs. the celebs, too).

Watching K on Kimmel later for sure.

Have a great night!

Tally Ho!

Dottie said...

Super, Agreed!

Hi DK!

Melinda, That does sound funny! I wonder if it's weird for Kristen to see Dean w/someone besides Rob?

Annie, Too bad about your pictures. At least you were there!

My son wants to talk to me. I'll try to come back but if not, good night! Thanks for suggesting this Melinda.


Kenzz said...

Super, just one of the things I love about my hubby... I've got a slew of pics of myself and hubby at various get-togethers ( family reunions, neighborhood BBQ, college alumni events), and invariably he is looking in my direction ( he, of course, claims he's just trying to make sure I'm staying out of trouble!!) haha

Didn't you recently have a girls day/night out? Spill the details !

Kenzz said...

Dk, Tally-ho!!!

Best wishes for your newest move... A rolling stone gathers no moss, and you epitomize that !!

Super RN Gas Passer said...

MELINDA. Poor Jen. I think shes been two timed too many times.

We are going to Myrtle Beach this weekend and I hope to see the AVENGERS and DARK SHADOWS. Oh. I watched ABDUCTION last week on DVD. I can't remember if I mentioned it on the blog. I thought it was very good. TAY was impressive. I think he can carry a movie on his own just fine.

DK. Hi ( waves)!! Hope the move goes painlessly!

Kenzz said...

Super: Myrtle Beach sounds fabulous" Have a wonderful trip?

I've yet to see Abduction, but I'm happy to hear a good critique of it...

Freddie said...

Hi ladies,

I'm late to the chat and unfortunately can't stick around, but I really, really wanted to say hello to everyone.

Annie - thanks for the play by play from the red carpet. That would be fun to see in person.

DK - I read your post from last night and laughed at "Gadzooks" - I haven't heard that in a while. Hope your move is going well and that you are loving your new place.

Kenzz - laughing at the idea of Dean two-timing Rob. Funny, I had the same thought. LOL.

Rhonda, Super, Leni, dottie - nice to catch up with you, if only briefly.

Melinda - hope you are well - thanks for suggesting this get together - even if I can only duck in for a moment.

Gotta run. Have a great evening ladies.

Super RN Gas Passer said...


It was a great weekend with the girls. Too much excellent food and drinks. Charleston is a fun place I spent alot of time in the Apple Store getting tutorials and troubleshooting for my I phone and I pad. Lol. I had one of the guys stumped for almost an hour trying to help me get a book downloaded off of I Tunes. I bet he hopes I don't come back anytime soon. Lol

Super RN Gas Passer said...


It's good to see you and Rhonda. Don't you guys work too hard!

Kenzz said...

Freddie: too little, too late! Wish you could stay longer, we need to set up a time to dig in and everyone dish the dirt!!

Super, I've done the same at the Apple store, I always think they are happy to see me take my iPhone and iPad and leave !

Melinda said...

I'm getting to sidetracked. Other things needing my attention.

Freddie- Sorry you couldn't pop in sooner. Hope you are doing well too.

I'm going to run. Enjoyed chatting with ya'll even if only for a little bit. Have a lovely evening!

Em said...

Hi guys im late but wanted to check in looong day for me but I'm waiting for someone n have a couple minutes :) I hope ur all okay I been trying to read but u guys r fast lol trying to catch up

Kenzz said...

Em, hi, hi, hi!! Never seem to be on when you pop in, but your comments never fail to amuse!

Melinda said...

Hey Em,

I just saw your comment as I was logging out. How are you doing?

Em said...

Hii kenzz im always running but it's good to see u here too!
Melinda I'm good just kinda tired n just hanging till I get picked up but how r u?

Kenzz said...

Super, if you're still on, Any idea how to distinguish between poison ivy rash and shingles? I'm way to young for the average age of shingles, but I also haven't been out in the yard this last week, so can't envision how in the world I contracted poison ivy ( unless the dogs brought it in?) anyways, I look like a leprosy victim, so would appreciate any insight my favorite nurse can offer!

Melinda said...

I'm well. Trying to do to many things at the same time right now. What I don't get done tonight will be there tomorrow, sadly.

You are always on the go. I don't know how you do it when I read your comments! Send some of that energy my way will you?? :)


I've had the shingles. Are they all over or in just one part of your body?

Kenzz said...

Melinda, all down my left arm... Not itchy, very painful, started out a few days before the rash as terribly achy joints...

Melinda said...


Hmmm...to me that sounds just like what I had. Mine were down the left side of rib cage only. I hope that it's not shingles. Most painful thing ever, imo. Felt like I was being poked with hundreds of needles.

Super RN Gas Passer said...

KENZZ...OMG..Poison ivy is horrible looking but doesn't hurt very much...but shingles is very painful. If poison ivy wash your body with dish washing liquid to remove the plant oil and decrease spreading. Try to avoid spread to your face and..ahem..private areas....soak 20-30 mins per day in Epsom salts to dry it up. For shingles you need to see a doctor. You may need a prescription for that. Good luck...

Em said...

hahaha Melinda lots of red bull lol I'm like I drink alot of that but I totally get what ur saying gets crazy n the more stuff u have to do sometimes it's like u can't even touch half n idk what happened but like someone just hit the speed button n I'm like from one place to the other n this week kinda nuts cause there's a celebration in the middle of all the crazy so get to party a little too

Super RN Gas Passer said...

Good night everybody. Hi EM:-). I am going to try to watch Bel Ami...the download is complete!!!!!

Kenzz said...

I really don't think it's poison ivy, because it's soo painful... And I have a pretty high tolerane to pain (goes with being a female, I surmise!). Doctor appt tomorrow afternoon... Wish me luck (& something mild)

Kenzz said...

Super, I watched Bel Ami twice this weekend... I cant help but ponder why it didn't get more criticaal review...
He was freakingg amazing in portraying the nuances of DoRoy's internal battle

Kenzz said...

Nite, friends! Taking my rashly arm to bEd, after self-medicating with a gglass of wine from a box Chardonnay :(

Melinda said...

Kenzz- Glad you are going to the doctor tomorrow. They gave me meds and I was such a happy camper after. Having never had a child I equated it to an epidural! :)

Em- A celebration in the middle of all the crazy sounds fun! Hope you have a great time. Any crazy hair colors again at this one? :)

Melinda said...

Night Kenzz. Hope you are able to sleep easy tonight.

Em said...

oh no kenzz just saw ur sick n hope u get better!
Melinda lol nooooo no more coloring my hair cause it took forever to get that out but yea should be fun I like going out n stuff like that there's always something but tonight it's kinda crazy traffic here my ride got caught up n I'm all the way down n lol still like 20 blocks away she said so I'm just sitting hanging at this place n there's this guy playing a keyboard n singing so lol it's cool

Kenzz said...

Melinda, thanks for the. Concern... Btw, your avi looks like the patches on my arm... (just sayin') lol

Kenzz said...

Em, as they say, enjoy the journey, not the destination!

Em said...

Kenzz totally lol he's actually not bad n now he's taking requests hahaha I might wanna just hang around

Melinda said...

Kenzz- I feel for you having gone through having it before. Sleep was bad pre-meds. I'm glad you have a sense of humor even feeling like crap! (Or maybe the wine's talking...ha,ha)

Em- I love NY (one of my fav places to be) but the traffic...it's nuts. At least you are being entertained while you wait. Hopefully you will be on your merry way soon and have a great rest of the evening!

Em said...

Okay guys I gotta bounce they r here finaaallyyy lol hope u all stay happy n have a good night ohhh dreamer good luck w the move

Super RN Gas Passer said...

KENZZ...I just finished watching Bel Ami...Absolutely amazing acting job for all the cast!!!!! Let us know what the doctor says...I' hope you feel better very soon ...

EM..Take care out there in the jungle!


DreamerKind said...

Oh, you lovely folks! Thanks for the mentions.

I'll keep you posted when completely in my new place, and totally out of it (margaritas & ole!).

Happy wishes to Rose, Smitty, Gruff, Syd & Gal, along with Roselanders and Lurkers!

Birdie said...

I think this says it all:
"if the point about fashion is to wear the clothes and not let them wear ‘you’ – then tonight, Kristen Stewart rocked it. Hard." The Inquisitr
She looked gorgeous as always and darling on Kimmel. Love this girl!
Have a great day all. More to come!

Annie said...

Morning all!

I wrote a comment over at Robstenation too and I said, as I did here last night...........
Many of the outfits were so damn boring......Kristen does not do boring!

Have s great day everyone.

Litmom said...

Hi Rose & her 'landers,
Looks like you had a fun chatfest last night while watching the Met livefeed. Mine was so slow, and just buffered the whole time.

Loved Kristen's look - didn't love the skirt to much (I think because it reminded me of one I had in 1968) - but she rocked it. I asked for classy/edgy and got it. I mentioned elsewhere that I thought too many of the young ladies looked like they were playing dress-up. Kristen never does!

Oh, and those shoes? - I freaking loved them!

MarcelaZuniga said...

You always made my day ... !! I'm glad they have a lot of work right now!... and still find the way to be together..if that's not love .then don't know what is it
