I'm all about the fucking sap.
And the Notebook is about as sappy as you can get...
am I right?
Couple of thoughts.
1. Can we stop with the insider bullshit?
Close to the actor
In the KNOW
Just fucking stop.
No one 'close to the source connection in the know'
is talking about intimate details
about what Rob/Kris are doing
or how they are feeling.
Whether its stuff you want to believe or not
It's complete BULLSHIT.
Gossip rags are making shit up.
Stop giving them hits.
Stop encouraging them to keep lying.
People you think know something... don't.
Not about this.
Surely you don't believe Rob is talking about
his most inner most feelings with someone
who just turns around and blabs it to everyone else?
Robert and Kristen
Two of the most notoriously private people ever...
Quotes from Rob:
"I've never been interested in selling my personal life"
"Um... yeah, I just think...
I think that its strange to accept that people try to take photographs and stuff...
Mainly because people try and sell it and any kind of life
where people are trying to sell every aspect of your life...
Things that aren't intended to be sold... it just makes me feel tacky...
it makes me feel cheap...
So I prefer, you know... to keep my personal life personal.
Try to at least."
"I don't know what benefits there would be to talking about it.
I mean, in logical terms, if you're just walking down the street
and every single stranger on the street knew your business,
and came up and felt like they needed to comment on it,
like, you'd just be like 'SHUT UP! Like I'm gonna kill you!'
*laughs* and I mean, it's exactly the same mentality.
I don't really want to try to sell it either.
Maybe if i was selling it, I'd talk about it more."
Quotes from Kristen:
“People always ask me if I’m dating Robert. It’s beyond annoying . . .
What I say is, that, why would I want anything that’s private
to become entertainment for other people?
This is what I wanted to show you on here.
People say that if I just tell them everything
I’ll be left alone,
but God, you think if I tell people they’ll leave me alone?
They pick up every little scrap, and that’s much worse.”
"I would never cheapen my relationships by talking about them.
People say, 'Just say who you're dating.
Then people will stop being so ravenous about it.
It's like, No they won't! They’ll ask for specifics."
2. Where is Robert?
Why does it really matter?
Is he in London?
Does that make your day?
Do you feel like you need to know exactly where
Rob is at all times?
Because that's kinda scary.
Not kinda scary.
Wherever he is...
It has no impact on your life.
And no matter how much you want to put
some sort of significance to where he is
It doesn't matter.
Sure... there were a couple of tweets
saying they saw Robert "Patterson"
(nice misspelling...makes it more real... intentional or not?)
On a plane... or some such shit.
If Robert flew on British Airways...
would only ONE person see him?
Kinda hard to believe.
Now him flying private makes much more sense.
But in that case...
That tweet was a lie and this is all moot.
So leave him alone.
If you do see him... why tell the world?
Does that make you special?
Or someone who has no regard for another human being?
Don't you look at Rob and see that?
Don't you see a person who has feelings...
when you look at Kristen?
Someone sent me an email telling me
in NO uncertain terms that she does NOT
condone cheating in any way
and will never forgive Kristen for what she has done.
Because Kristen didn't do jack shit to you.
You don't have to 'condone' cheating...
Bravo to you.
I'm sure your halo is all bright and shiny.
But I'm pretty sure you're not in a relationship with Kristen...
Why would she want or NEED your forgiveness?
That's the deal with these lunatics.
They feel Kristen cheated on THEM.
Or they are all wrapped up in being all self righteous
and indignant on Rob's behalf.
Get the fuck over yourself.
You're not in this relationship.
No one gives a fuck if you approve or not.
This isn't your life.
This didn't happen to you.
None of us do.
None of us should.
3. Marlowe Sturridge.
I debated whether or not to post this picture...
But since you can't see her face
I thought it was OK.
I still struggle with the whole pap thing.
You know that.
I don't go to the trashy sites that publish them...
But I do see them.
I kinda promised myself that I would not post pics
where its obvious that the people in them
are very upset and/or being harassed.
Where the person looks miserable and angry
and the cameras are in their face.
Where the paps are being intrusive and rude.
And as long as they aren't on private property
and in a public setting....
Am I rationalizing?
A little bit.
Because I realize that 99% of the pics
I see of Rob/Kris/Tom
are paparazzi pics.
But I can be choosy about which ones I post.
And that brings us back to this one with
Thomas and his beautiful daughter.
You can't really see her face...
Just a peek of her nose and a swath of hair.
I'm not posting it because of what you can see of Marlowe...
I'm posting it because it shows the love
between Tom and his little baby precious.
And he probably wouldn't like that I posted this...
but I find the connection between
Tom and his baby girl...
Forgive me Thomas.
For I have sinned.
I promise to behave next time.
4. Someone posted this on Twitter.
It made me laugh.
It made me happy.
It made me realize that we haven't had a lot to twirl about lately.
But I have good feelings about the future.
I just do.
Good Twirly Feelings.
I have faith that everything will be OK.
So grab your ribbon...
This post is brought to you by rationalizations.
We all do it.
But you need to look at why you do it.
Makes a difference.
Until next time
Bye for now
