10 Things I Love About Rob and Kristen



 Ten things I love.
I seem to spend too much time
discussing all the things I don't like...
I thought this might be a nice change of pace.





 1. I love that Rob and Kristen can put on a pair of 
dorky black frames and STILL look sexier and more
beautiful than anyone else.









 2. I love that they hold hands.
I think it's incredibly sweet
and it's a nice way to show affection.
And I also like that holding hands is their thing.
They do it all the time.
All.The.Time.
They've been doing it since 2009.
That first hand-holding pic was kind of the beginning...
And they are still going strong.





 3. I love that Rob and Kristen love animals.
Especially their adorable mutts Bernie and Bear.




I love that both of them talk about them all the time.
Talk about their dogs.
Their.
Dogs.








4. I love how Rob and Kristen's families like each other.
Seem very comfortable around each other...
No doubt the families have gotten to know each other
very well over the last 4 years.
It's sweet how both sides support Rob and Kristen.





5. I love that both Rob and Kristen are working
with some of the best people in film.
I see nothing but great things in front of them.
I can't wait to see what they do next!

(And of course... I love Rob's striped polo.)








6. I love how 'in love' Rob and Kristen are.
Seeing them so happy...
Makes me smile.






7. I love how Rob smiles around Kristen.
It lights up his whole face... his whole being.
Everything you need to know about how he feels about Kristen...
Is in that smile.



Especially the moments... where he doesn't think anyone is watching.






8. I love how Rob and Kristen support each other.
Rob goes to her premieres... she goes to his.
Cannes was a huge deal.
And there they were... front and center
to be there for each other.
And honestly...
How fucking great was Cannes?







9. I love how Rob and Kristen love Tom.
Because I love Tom...
He's shown that he is loyal and trustworthy...
and that he cares about those he loves.





10. I love how Rob and Kristen just keep living their life...
Their way.
They don't give a fuck if anyone approves.
They're happy in love
and that's all that matters.


And that brings me to my one positive/negative.


I love how Kristen owns the fucking haters.
They spend all day... every day
obsessing over her.
They can't stop.
They have to know what she is doing...
what she is wearing...
what she is saying.
It's hilarious in a pathetically psycho kinda way.
They are SO mad!!
Nothing is working out the way they thought it would!



And in the meantime...
Kristen is promoting her next movie
looking gorgeous and happy
Rob is preparing for his upcoming film
looking gorgeous and happy
They both have exciting projects coming up.
And they remain
Together.
Sharing everything.
Together.
Moving forward...
Together.

Good times ahead.
Brilliant times.

Wait and see.


This post is brought to you by the number 10.


Until next time.


Bye for now

Love the post :)

Freddie said...

Rose - nice post.

Super - I hope you are well. Hang in there for your friend but don't forget to take care of yourself.

Robert - As nothing I can say will be adequate, I'm going to take my lead from Kami and just express my heartfelt sorrow at your loss. My condolences.

Hi Marley - nice to see you.

I hope everyone is well and has a great evening.

Ginger with a Soul said...

Rose great post !!! You used some of my favorite pictures of them together too.

irene said...

Just love them, love them, love them and love other people who love them, especially those who love them together!!!!!

Stella said...

Life is so simple if one can just accept some facts. How can you look at Rob and Kristen's faces and not smile at the way they look each other? Hate makes miserable only the one who carries it.

@Robert, we keep the ones we've lost close to our hearts and there they remain alive, happy and cherished. I'm sorry for your loss.

DreamerKind said...

@Rose Nose
Cool, like the 12 days of Xmas but instead 10 whys of love.

@marley
A pleasure to see you.

REPOST
Good day, everyone!

@Robert
Email sent, in hope that yours is working again. Thinking of you.

@Super
You're such a good friend.

Feeling like making a shout out to old regs lurking, and newbies, too. Come by during this holiday season.

Jeannie said...

I love, love, love this post! Thank you, Rose. My heart is beating, smile on my face and so much love for Rob & Kristen. My favorites: 1. love Rob's smile, it does say it all! 2. Their hand holding, I remember seeing Paris in 2009...it was epic. 3. Their support & of each other and how in love they are...unconditional and it's theirs. They don't have a need to justify it to anyone. 4. And of course, how K, just owns the haters. I came across this @robitchford (can't remember if I spelled this correctly) see, she has Rob in her profile name yet, all her post from days on end are all about Kristen, no mention of Rob. What a sad, sad life! Obviously, K totally OWNS her!

Thank you, Rose and to all of you who keeps the connection here one that is safe and supportive. I've been following awhile but very rarely post. I love this place.

Oneheart said...

Robert I am so very sorry for your loss. Praying for God to comfort you during this time. God Bless You.

Rose I loved your love filled post. Everytime I see this beautiful and adorable couple together or see a pic of them I always smile because you can see love. Love is always something beautiful to behold. We get an abundance of it from them.

Like you, I'm looking forward to the good times ahead. The brilliant times. They've only just begun...we better put on our shades their future looks bright and happy.

Hope all of you have a wonderful holiday season and stay safe.

Oneheart said...

Irene I loved your post of love. Beautifully said.

Holy said...

Hello everyone.

Rose-nice post as always.

Yep,it's the truth,Kristen owns the fucking haters.

We'll be seeing Kristen again this week.I miss seeing Rob too.

@Ginger-waves.

PL said...

Robert,

As so many before have said, I'm sorry for your loss. He'll always be with you in your memories.

Ginger with a Soul said...

@Holy waves back


Evening to everyone else that is popping on

Ginger with a Soul said...

Happy Birthday Liz !!!!!!!

Happy Birthday to you Happy Birthday to you Happy Birthday Liz - I hope you feel better today too !!!!!!

PamH said...

@Rose
Awesome as always!!!
All the photos show two people madly in LOVE with one another who are heading for a new adventure and great things. I'll never tire of watching the balcony gif....so sweet.
Thanks Rose

Kristen ( and hopefully Rob ) should be getting ready to travel back to NYC, I hope it's a better experience this time getting in and out of airports

Karen in NJ said...

Happy Birthday, Liz! I'm sorry to hear you are nt feeling well. I hope you had a wonderful cruise!

Super RN Gas Passer said...

LIZ

Happy Bday. Sorry you are sick...ugh....Guess what? I just ordered the Florabotanica from Neiman Marcus!!

Hi FREDDIE. Thank you...I will and you do the same:)

Hi MARLEY...Giod to see you , HUGS ONEHEART and everyone else

DK. YOU are the most awesome friend !!!!

Love to ALL

Super RN Gas Passer said...

Oops MARLEY.

That was supposed to say. GLAD. TO. SEE. YOU!!!!!!!

LIZ said...

GINGER & KAREN -- THANK YOU for the birthday wishes!!! What a surprise!!! I'm guessing a little birdie told y'all.

The cruise was lovely and fortunately my horrible cold didn't start until the last day so I didn't miss anything. I am really feeling down & out but it could be worse. I don't get colds often and can't take much medicine so I just have to be miserable for a few days.

I just watched KS on Craig Ferguson last night ... she is so beautiful. Getting more beautiful all the time. Am looking forward to seeing her the next couple of days.

QUESTION: IF Kristen gets nommed for either a GG or an Oscar, do we think she'll take Rob with her? He might be in Australia so my guess is maybe her Mom, Dad or brother.

Take care, all, this birthday girl is going to bed!!!

olivia said...

Dear Rose,
Thank you for a most wonderful post tonight. Absolutely one of my favorites of all time. Every point, 1 through 10, is lovely and so true.

Dear Robert,
Please accept my heartfelt condolences. ((Hugs)) for you.

Dear Super,
((Hugs)) for you, also.

I am keeping both of you in my thoughts and prayers.

Have a good evening dear Roseland.
Am very busy with end of the semester work these next two weeks.
Hugs for y'all.
Hugs for Smitty, Gruff and Syd.

May said...

Why give condolences to Rob? Who died close to rob?

Litmom said...

Love, Love, Love this post, Rose.

BBL when my life is calmer...

Oneheart said...

Hi Super..hugs to you too. I love the Florabotanica especially the shower gel. I have almost used up all of mine. I've been doing some serious hinting but not sure it's getting through. LOL I may have to order it myself.

DK sending you a big hug too. Love ya.

PamH said...

@LIZ
Happy Birthday :)
Glad you had a wonderful time
I hope you feel better soon

If Rob wasn't able to attend with K I would love to see her parents attend, even though they're usually pretty low key I couldn't see them not being around for something so important for Kristen. I'd love to see Robs family come to support her also.

Robert said...

@may,

i think they were referring to me

because of the death of my friend

Holy said...

My god,another shooting in Oregon Mall,3 people are dead.Our prayers to the family of the victims.

Holy said...

@Liz,HAPPY B-DAY.Sorry to hear that you're not feeling well.I hope you feel better soon so we can continue to twirl.LOL.

Holy said...

@Robert-sorry to hear about your friend.My prayers to you and your friend's family.

bellabells7279 said...

I love this post so much. It's one of my favorites. I love their love. So special and rare.

Kami said...

To everyone having a hard time right now, please know that there are quite a few of us here who are here if you need us. Hang in there, it may be a while but it will get better.

Olivia White said...

Absolutely beautiful post Rose. You always tell it like it is, no more-no less. Seeing the way Rob & Kristen are together makes me smile. They really have something special. Happy Holidays to you and everyone here. Thank you for a wonderful blogspot.

Honestly Genuine said...

Wow my very time on this site, absolutely in love with it. Rose you did an amazing job. Thank you.

Kami said...

Everyone please excuse my excitement over something completely non blog related. BUT we just found out that my husband's youngest brother was just named Fire Fighter of the year and I am so over the top proud of him. He didn't have the easiest childhood, but he has turned into the most amazing man. Ok through bragging, I just felt like shouting it from the rooftop but it's too cold outside to actually do that, so....

Pattybg said...

HEY KAMI!

HOW WONDERFUL FOR YOUR BROTHER-IN-LAW:))
MARTY WAS BOTH A VOLUNTEER FIREMAN AND A PAID MAN SO I SURE AM EXCITED FOR ALL OF YOU.

PATTY XXXX


Kami said...

THANK YOU PATTY!

Pattybg said...

ROBERT
I AM SO SORRY ABOUT YOUR FRIEND. I CAN'T IMAGINE HOW SAD AND DEVASTATING IT MUST BE. WITH MANY HUGS AND PRAYERS.

SUPER...I MISUNDERSTOOD WHEN YOU WROTE ABOUT HOW YOU SEND PATIENTS TO "SLEEP" WITH HAPPY DREAMS. BUT THE RESULT IS THE SAME AS WHEN MY
FRIEND TUCKS PATIENTS IN. LOL
PATTY

DreamerKind said...

Off early and for the night. Take care, all.

Stella said...

Good morning everyone!
Looks like Kristen left LA for NY in a private jet, alone. I guess she must have landed by now. It is a bit disappointing that Rob's not with her, but the good thing is that paps didn't even get near her.
Take care all!

ali mac said...

KAMI congrats to your brother in law. What a job they do, thanks God for them and we should all try to remember to say a prayer for all the emergency services who do so much for us all.

My dad was a fireman in the 1970s during the worst of our Countries troubles, the stories he has to tell!!

Kelly said...

Great post as always! I always love the pictures you choose to go with your words, and I can't forget to mention your cute as hell emoticons/smiley people. xo 1918EC

Annie said...

Good morning all.

Super: It's so sad to read that your friend with cancer is not doing well. Hugs.

Robert : Please accept my deepest condolences for the loss of your friend.

Anyone else not feeling well or going through a tough time in any way.........Hang in. Hang in.

Kami: Congratulations to your brother-in-law. What a great honor for him and all of his family.

Take care everybody, it's been a busy, cold week so far. Hopefully I'll get to watch the 12-12-12 concert tonight.

I have to play catch up with all of Kristen's appearances but from the little I've been able to watch and read she's doing great and she's confirmed starring in FOCUS with Ben Affleck. Yeah!
Haters can fuck right off!

Here's to a wonderful Wednesday.

laurieo76 said...

Loved your post, Rose. I especially like to see Rob and Kristen's families interacting. Makes me happy to know they are all so supportive of Rob and Kristen.

Omoiyari said...

wondeful post! go away negative thoughts

sue said...

Yes Rose, me too, I like all of those things. No need to say anymore words. They are adorable, sweet, trying to live a normal life and fck all those who don't like it. Get over it!

Annie said...

An off topic but her response rings true:
It was front page news. :(
Last night Les Mis premiered in NYC, as it's star Anne Hathaway exited her car photographers caught pics of her and she was not wearing any undergarments.
This was her response:
...........
But the night took a sour turn when a paparazzi caught the actress exiting her car in an awkward way, revealing she was not wearing any underwear.

This morning, Hathaway was asked about the incident on the Today show and she told Matt Lauer, "It was obviously an unfortunate incident [and] it kind of made me sad that we live in an age when someone takes a pic of you in a vulnerable moment and sells it rather than deletes it."

Ginger with a Soul said...

Morning Ladies

@Kami - Congrats to your brother in Law

@Stella - I think we all wanted him there but they normally don't go together so it is their status qou besides she has a very packed 2 days


@Annie - it is true. The sad part is how fast those pictures got posted all over the web. Life happens and there something so wrong when people try to use it to publicly shame you. It took away from her night and that just really is so very wrong

PamH said...

Morning ladies and Gent

@ Kami
Congrats to your brother in law

Not disappointed that Rob didn't go with Kristen, like Ginger said thats not how they work, just knowing he was in the car seeing her off was enough for me.

ADD said...

"I love how Rob and Kristen just keep living their life...Their way."
My favorite thing about them. Nothing else matters but their happiness.

AE said...

it is always like an honorable, rose, to read something of yours.
Beautiful!!!!
you are to hundred percent right with every point.
love them and I hope kristen has a nice evening today !
I'm looking forward to hopefully beautiful silvester photos or even a Christmas surprise.
Thank you and have a nice rest week to everyone

Ginger with a Soul said...

I love the idea that Paul McCartney is going to be fronting "Nirvana" tonight - I just don't want to hear him sing teen spirit. That maybe a really unpopular opinion but there are just those songs you cringe when you hear someone else try to sing because the original was just owned the 1st time around. Grohl/McCartney on any other song should be win.

tufenuf55 said...

He might show up for the NYC OTR premiere.

PamH said...

To All Roselanders

My husband found out about a boy who is dying from Cystic Fibrosis (stage 4) he's 9 years old and his wish is to beat the Guinness Book Of World Records for receiving the most Christmas cards, he needs more help, so if anyone could send him a card that would be GREAT. You can search his story on the Internet .

Thank You

Barbara Fenwick said...

Great post Rose. You always know the right thing to say. I love reading your blog, it always makes me feel better.

Rob and Kristen are so happy together. You cannot look at them without sharing their happiness.

Merry Christmas Roselanders. Take care and have a great holiday.

Kami said...

Pam, I was making out Christmas cards when I saw your post. I'm sending a card and I am also wondering if you would mind if I post your message to my Facebook page?

Oneheart said...

Hi everyone..I just wanted to thank Pam for posting Dalton's address. I will definitely be sending him a card. I hope he breaks the record.

Hope everyone had a wonderful day. I can't get over how quickly it seems Christmas is coming. Wow only two more weekends to shop. I don't think we are ever really finished we can always think of one or two things to buy but there comes a time when we have to say I'm done...I just haven't got there yet. LOL

DreamerKind said...

Good evening!

Watching/listening to the Sandy Relief concert and going to donate, too.

"We need a little Christmas, right this very minute!"

Oneheart said...

Kami that is a great idea. If you don't care Pam can I post it at another blog site that I love.

Kami said...

I just had 4 people say that they're sending cards, and have shared it on their pages, and it's been only a few minutes.

"We Need A Little Christmas"

The New Christy Mintrels:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NrLJGOh8R-k

Haul out the holly;
Put up the tree before my spirit falls again.
Fill up the stocking,
I may be rushing things, but deck the halls again now.

For we need a little Christmas
Right this very minute,
Candles in the window,
Carols at the spinet.
Yes, we need a little Christmas
Right this very minute.
It hasn't snowed a single flurry,
But Santa, dear, we're in a hurry;

So climb down the chimney;
Put up the brightest string of lights I've ever seen.
Slice up the fruitcake;
It's time we hung some tinsel on that evergreen bough.

For I've grown a little leaner,
Grown a little colder,
Grown a little sadder,
Grown a little older,
And I need a little angel
Sitting on my shoulder,
Need a little Christmas now.

Haul out the holly;
Well, once I taught you all to live each living day.
Fill up the stocking,
But Auntie Man, it's one week from Thanksgiving Day now.

But we need a little Christmas
Right this very minute,
Candles in the window,
Carols at the spinet.
Yes, we need a little Christmas
Right this very minute.
It hasn't snowed a single flurry,
But Santa, dear, we're in a hurry;

So climb down the chimney;
Put up the brightest string of lights I've ever seen.
Slice up the fruitcake;
It's time we hung some tinsel on that evergreen bough.

For we need a little music,
Need a little laughter,
Need a little singing
Ringing through the rafter,
And we need a little snappy
Need a little Christmas now.

Thank you/Bob Barry

She does! How are you feeling?

DreamerKind said...

@Pam
Me, too! Card for Dalton on its way.

@Oneheart
I return the love. Take care, and detox (garlic).

Hugs Dr. DK....garlic is good for everything even keeping Vampires away. LOL I don't mind the good vampires but I sure don't want any bad ones. LOL

Take a vampire (good one) shopping with you and get to the front of the lines-fast!

RC said...

I can't with people bashing her for doing a charity event. I mean really?

tufenuf55 said...

OMG!!! What has happened to our BBG? She was cute, she didn't show any nervous tics, she was polished and wonderful. I believe Kristen has discovered what she wants to achieve in her career; in her personal life. She KNOWS where she wants to go and who she wants to keep in her life. We raised her well! lol

Love for Kristen!

Jon Stewart is on 12.12.12 now. Hope he is appreciating Kristen and show her respect. Terrific show and good to see celebrities who make a really good living giving of their time to help people in real need.

LIZ said...

DK -- Yea, Kristen looks great.

I'm feeling really terrible, worse day so far, missed work, not much sleep last night. Going to be now, MUST open the office tomorrow even if I have the flu.

Apparently the flu shots are working that well this year :(

tufenuf55 said...

One of the greatest, if not the greatest guitarist...Eric Clapton. Tonight's performers are bringing back wonderful memories for me. Have donated. I'm originally from The Great State of Maine and we sure had our share to hurricanes and snow blizzards. I feel for anyone going through this devastation of loss of life and keepsakes that can never be retrieved. Billy Crystal said that 2 billion people are watching and if everyone just gave $1...so give if you can spare a dollar. Nuf said.

RC said...

tufenuf55 - LOL "we raised her well" damn right! ;)

DreamerKind said...

@LIZ
Aww, so sorry for you. Can't someone else cover the office? Perhaps your flu shot was for another strain, not the one you got, cause that happens too often. (Garlic)

PamH said...

@ Kami, Oneheart & DK
Thank You all so much and pass it on to anyone you can ((())) hugs to you ladies and all your friends and bloggers

DK
I'll be sending one to Walter Reed

@LIZ
I hope you feel better soon and glad your back

Kami said...

Dk, still addressing Christmas cards, so I added the one for recovering soldiers. Thank you for the address for that. I know Christmas cards aren't much to a lot of people but knowing someone has taken the time to think of you means a lot. So thanks again.

DreamerKind said...

@Kami
Thanks, luv. I've got a stack of cards sitting here and a postal box in the lobby. Who else needs some cheering up?

DreamerKind said...

@LIZ
Just noticed you said you are off to bed. May the night heal your ills. Mwah.

DreamerKind said...

OMG, what a concert to watch before I die, and I am wide awake tonight. Missed Pavarotti and Paul Simon in person, happy for this music!

Happy for you all here, too, lovelies.

Two of my most favorite things Kristen and Jon Bon Jovi....awesome!!!!!!!

DK we have a little 5 year old boy in our community who is battling cancer...His dying wish is to get Christmas cards from all over the world..He loves people who work in public safety so he would love to get cards from Police and Firefighters if you know any please tell them about Nathan..I saw on the news that Police and firefighters from all over the world have come to see him.

His address is...

Nathan Norman

It's getting late so I better call it a night...Talk to you all tomorrow..Good night.

Ginger with a Soul said...

@DK - Jesus Walks is an amazing song - Kayne makes music that makes you bob your head. He has a couple songs that I really like.

@Oneheart/Pam - what you two are doing is so very sweet

Kami said...

Oneheart, since I have a brother in law who is a firefighter and a brother in law who is a sheriff's deputy, I passed the information on to both of them and maybe they can find some other people join in and send Nathan cards.

Ok all my cards have been addressed, stamped and are ready to go, I am taking a hot bath and going to bed. Night

PamH said...

@Oneheart
I don't know any Police officers but I do know some Firefighters so I'll see what I can do.
Goodnight :)

@Kami
Night :)

@Ginger
Waves
I was wondering where you were :)
You know the benefit made my night seeing my two favorite people. I hope Kristen got to stick around and meet some people and have some fun.

@DK
You're right all the different performers coming together for such a great cause and creating one of the best concerts was amazing....something for everyone that is a music lover.

Remember This

Old Folks

John Denver:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZA3ZIIoNayk

The old folks don't talk much
They talk so slowly when they do
They are rich they are poor
Their illusions are gone
They share one heart for two

Their homes all smell of time
Of old photographs
And an old fashioned song
Though you may live in town
You live so far away
When you've lived too long

Have they laughed too much
Do their dry voices crack
talking of things gone by
Have they cried too much
A tear or two still always seems
To cloud the eye

They tremble as they watch the old silver clock
When day is through
tick tock oh so slow
It says yes it says no
It says I wait for you

The old folks dream no more
Their books have gone to sleep
The piano's out of tune

The little cat is dead
and no more do they sing on a sunday afternoon

The old folks move no more
Their world become to small
their bodies feel like lead
they might look out a window
or else sit it a chair
or else they stay in bed

and if they still go out
arm in arm, arm in arm
in the morning chill
its to have a good cry
to say their last goodbye
to one who's older still
and then they go home
to the old silver clock
when day is through
tick tock so so slow
it says yes it says no
it says I wait for you

the old folks never die
they just put down their heads
and go to sleep one day
they will hold each others hands
like children in the dark
but one will get lost anyway

And the other will remain
Just sitting in a room
Which makes no sound
It doesn't matter now
the song has died away
and echo's all around

you'll see them as they walk
through the sun filled parks
where children run and play
it hurst to much to smile
it hurts so much
but life goes on for still another day
as they try to escape the old silver clock
when day is through
tick tock oh so slow
it says yes it says no
it says I wait for you

Birdie said...

Morning DK! Thanks for the tunes. Hope all is well in your world!

Life got in the way of seeing the Sandy concert,damn! If anyone knows that they will be showing this again, do you mind posting the time?

Robert and Super, so sorry for illness and loss of friends.

I am a little out of touch during this busy time, but hope you all are doing well and enjoying the holiday season.

Kristen is still on the road. This is truly not to be mean, but the contrast between Kirsten and Kristen in the OTR screening pic is quite extreme.
Kristen , you knocked it out of the park again last night. Not many women could carry off that dress and certainly not as well as you!

Annie said...

Morning all.
Birdie and DK.........fellow early risers. :)

Got home just in time to watch Kristen talk about the devastation in New Jersey and introduce Bon Jovi........Hell yes!
What a super night of music and every performer was just on!
It's been six weeks since hurricane Sandy hit and the work to clean up and bring some sense of normalcy for many continues.
It was so humbling to watch the 12-12-12 concert last night........The celebrities who spoke such heartfelt words for people who lost so much and communities that have been wiped out and also of the volunteers and emergency personnel who are still giving so much of their time and themselves.
----------
Loved Kristen in that Catherine Malandrino dress at last night's OTR screening in NYC.

Have a great dy everybody.

katy said...

Hello Rose and Roseland,

Good morning, Annie, Birdie, DK :)

Sweet post, Rose!!! Beautiful pics!!

Much love and hapiness for Rob and Kristen.

Robert, Please accept my heartfelt condolences on the loss of your friend. Hugs.

Super, I am sorry that your friend is not doing well. Thougts and prayers go out to your friend.

Wish everyone a happy day.

PS: LOVE the new banner. ( I know that those pics, are a MAJOR intrusion...but they are really sweet and they make me smile. Sorry)

Annie said...

Something else...........How the fuck do some people get on Twitter or any other media and criticize anyone for being part of a charity event?

There is a great line from the movie Wanted......James McAvoy's character says it: "What the fuck have you done lately."

Is their hate that deep?

Their lives that pathetic?

Is it because everything they've ever predicted has blown up in their faces and shown them to be nothing but hateful bitches?

The vile hate you spew does not define Kristen. It fucking defines you!
-------------
Kristen........You go girl!

Oneheart said...

Pam and Kami thank you so much for passing the word along to the firefighters and police officers. I think I read somewhere he has gotten over 600,000 cards so far. That is amazing.

Super I am so sorry about your friend. Praying for both of you during this difficult time. Hugs.

Robert still thinking of you and your loss and praying for you too. God Bless You.

Oneheart said...

Annie bravo to you....you said it all with that quote.."What the fuck have you done lately." How dare anyone set back and criticize someone for helping the needy when they're setting flat on their ass in front of a television too busy having thoughts of hate and NONE about love and charity for the victims of Hurricane Sandy. They're nothing but self centered, heartless, jealous, miserable beings that can't see past their hate of someone who has done nothing to them to take one minute out of their pathetic lives and care for others.

Off soapbox....

tufenuf55 said...

Last night's concert was beyond belief!!
Kristen looks smoking! Kirsten looks a little frumpy. Not saying that to be mean. I like her a lot, but she has always dressed differently. Doesn't matter; she's got Garrett! haha.

Quote from Kristen in USA Today interview:
"People think they knew a lot about me before. They know even less now. People will project whatever. It's a huge form of entertainment. As soon as you step outside your own life and look at it like that and think that you can shape something -- you need to live your life. I'm just going to live my life, actually," she says.

Oh, yeah! Our girl has ARRIVED!!

Oneheart said...

tufenuf55 that's what we love about her...she lives her life the way she chooses and so does Rob. They're perfect for each other in so many ways.

30 said...

Thank You Kristen for coming and supporting NY and NJ at the 12/12 concert. ♥

Ginger with a Soul said...

Morning Ladies

@Pam - was watching the benefit and got lost in the music. I was so think of you and Karen when Jovi came on.

@Annie - they will never change their tune and it just makes them look really really bad. People are getting less tolerant of them day by day. Adam Sandler sent a big kiss to Trump (too funny)

I was proud of her - she is so shy and took on the big crowd and for such a worthy cause. So many people need help and it just compounds the situation with it being this time of year (Holiday's and Winter). There is not on single person that needs help that will look at how they got the money and say hey I don't like so and so - I won't take the help. Her name brought supporters and people donated extra because she was there - not just here in the US but across the world. That concert and everyone involved did an amazing thing

@Oneheart - They need to go outside and interact with real people - that may be why they don't get human compasion

Annie said...

Oneheart and Ginger: They were pissed that Kristen got to introduce Bon Jovi, who then went on to give a kick-ass performance and prior to that Billy Crystal introducing Kristen. :)

Kristen is living her life, holding her head high and looking fucking gorgeous while doing so.

Envy/jealousy and hate doesn't look good on anyone.

I missed Adam Sandler but I heard he was amazing. :) Will have to look for it on Youtube.

PamH said...

@ Ginger
Somehow I missed the Adam Sandler greeting to Trump, must have been during bathroom break...LOL

It was a great show I hope they raised lots of money.

I loved k dress at the screening, can't wait to see what she wears to premier

Ginger with a Soul said...

@Annie/Pam - There was so much hate towards most of the performers/presenters. I just will never get how people coming together for a good thing pisses so many people off. The motto should be stand up, put up or shut up. Helping others no matter how small or how big is helping others. None of those people had to be there but they did and people should just be grateful for that - I know the people truly effected by this that will be receiving the help are nothing less than appreciative. I live no where near this but I have people that I truly value and care about that lived through this. People I hounded daily to make sure they were doing OK and for them I appreciate everything people did last night because people that I value deeply and others that suffered will get help they need. Even if they survived unscathed maybe their community did not or someone they know suffered some form of loss.

LIZ said...

I GUESS I'M GOING TO LIVE. Thanks to everyone for the well wishes. It's quite shameful as I only have a bad cold and so many others are suffering and even dying.

GINGER, PAMH, ANNIE, 30, ONEHEART, TUF, KATY, BIRDIE and DK --- Glad everyone is here and well. We are all so LUCKY to have this wonderful place to go. We are all here because of our love of "the kids" but it has become so much more to many of us. I am planning to check-in a lot on the blog around Christmas as that is when a lot of folks need someone to talk to.

Our girl looks lovely today, like a schoolgirl at the press junket. I'm SO looking forward to seeing her on Jon Stewart tonight and also seeing the pics from the premiere.

LIZ IN LALA LAND --- TRYING TO TWIRL!!!

LIZ said...

I forgot to say that I imagine Rob was at home watching Kristen on the 121212 concert and just "beaming" at how proud he is of her. You know, it's sad, he probably wanted to do something also, phones, present, sing, whatever. BUT, so many would have said it was just for PR if both of them showed up.

PamH said...

Sounds like our Kristen already has or will be putting her cooking skills at work on a turkey ? Hope to see that interview from young hollywood soon.
LIZ is right see does have that school girl look with her outfit and fresh face.

LIZ
I hope your feeling better

Ginger
Was all this negativity toward the benefit happening on twitter.....I seriously do not understand all the hate out there. For people to be so mean toward something that can help so many people and honor those that have went above and beyond to help already doesn't make any since but that these people are seriously unhappy and disturbed and just want everyone else to be that way to.

RC said...

Kristen looked amazing in that dress! Kirsten Dunst is such a horrible dresser lol, I'm pretty sure me being a fashion whore, if I were a fan of hers I'd be mad every time I saw her clothing.

Ginger with a Soul said...

@Pam - yup on twitter/different sites doing postings - it was sad and really the people were heartless - hope they aren't the ones asking for help if they said negative things towards the people there helping.

LIZ said...

GINGER & PAM -- Unhappy people ALWAYS want other people to be unhappy. No other explanation.

I'm more worried about that "nut" in Oregon because he doesn't fit the profile like some of the others do. The Aurora guy did fit a profile in hindsight but this guy flipped out of nowhere according to his family and friends. I wonder how many of these "haters" are on the fence before taking it step further and getting hold of some guns and doing harm.

Let me try this again.

There are haters out there about everything. I've seen people say on a website about some child with cancer that they should just...forgive me this is horrible, but I repeating to prove how vile people are...'die and quit living off of welfare' there are hateful, vile, disgusting people everywhere. There are much bigger names out there who have more haters than Kristen and before people begin to get upset, let me finish. IF you think Kristen gets a lot of hate, you should see the hate God gets. Regardless of whether, Christian, Muslim, or Jewish, anyone who mentions "God" in just passing like "Thank God!" will get slammed. There are always going to be vermin in this world, and they will make themselves known.

Now having said that, and I do not mean this as anything other than an observation, I think Kirsten Dunst looked wonderful, as did Kristen. Just because there are two women in one picture doesn't mean we have to build up one and tear down the other. We can like both, it's acceptable.

Ok off my soap box and please NO ONE think this was directed towards any of you here...but something that has happened off the blog. So if it seems I was talking to you, please disregard because I wasn't referring to anyone who has commented here, just talking to someone who 'visits'.

Ginger with a Soul said...

@Kami - The really sad part was it wasn't just Kristen that got blasted last night (we notice more because we adore her) I am pretty sure it was a round table of hate towards everyone which just is so so so wrong. People insufferable and I think some people are just wired wrong. How do you hate a child that has anything wrong with them and God forbid they see that shit. That is the stuff that just breaks my heart and makes you wonder how people like that function in life.

tufenuf55 said...

Liz

I just now saw the pics of her and posted a comment on Robsten Dreams pretty much like how you think she looks. I posted that she looks like "the girl next door"...wholesome. I also said that I prefer her with less eye makeup to see her pretty green eyes. Of course, I like the smoky look if it is a special event, but sometimes even that is a little overdone. Kristen can't even have a bite to eat without some scumbag taking pics of her. Good thing her friend and HBG took special care of her.

tufenuf55 said...

Annie

You MUST absolutely watch the Adam Sandler "song". So true...So funny.

Kami said...

Ginger you're right, people have posted hurtful and cruel things about a so many people, for no reason other than they just want to get a rise out of someone else.

My niece had a procedure done that was very experimental, she had bone cancer in her femur and into her knee, the only option a few years ago was to amputate the entire leg and put in a steel rod for her to use for her prosthetic leg to attach to. It is not hugely successful and requires replacements often, so her doctor suggested a procedure that had been used a couple of times. The took the healthy bottom half of her leg and foot and moved it up, they turned it around so that her foot is now her knee. It is an amazingly cool thing. So her picture and story along with other children's stories were featured in "U.S. News and world report". Someone who had no idea how this was paid for began a write in campaign that this be stopped because it cost the tax payers a lot of money especially for a child who would most likely die anyway. He raised a big stink.

When proof was presented to this creature that all of the medical expenses for this surgery and every surgery she has ever had was paid for by my sister and brother in law and their insurance company, and they pointed out that the amount of money the insurance paid was over $1 million, he didn't care. Not at all. He just kept going about how they should let kids die rather than spend money on something so stupid.

People can be wonderful, but they can also be asses who are full of shit. People will hate on someone just because they THINK they know something about them, when in truth they know nothing.

Holy said...

Hello guys.

Good news for Rob's new project "Hold on To Me"shooting will be the beginning of 2013.

Kristen's looks good again today.I like her red boots.And she cooked 16 lbs turkey for thanksgiving in UK.LOL.

@Ginger-hey girl.

Ginger with a Soul said...

@Holy - hey :) I will probably miss a good portion of the premier so you have to update LOL 2 of my girls have their Christmas Choir concert tonight. Ironically enough one of their songs is It's my Life by Bon Jovi

@Kami - yup - you can see the stupid whenever an article comes out on some tragedy/triumph and there is that one person who can't help but to say something hurtful for attention.

Holy said...

@Ginger-I will try to update you.But you know that you're much better than me.LOL.Ohhh,the 2 girls will definitely have fun tonight.Take a lots of pics.

RC said...

Scandal comes on tonight! So excited OLITZ♥

I remember trying to rush home from work to watch my soaps, haven't done that in years. Now I'm rushing home for Scandal, its that great.

Holy said...

Kristen just walk straight inside and didn't stop the RC,I guess she's late.She's wearing white dress and red heels.The crazy papz were booing her.

Holy said...

Go,Kristen fans."Then pap boo'd and the fans chanted Kristen back at them."

Holy said...

FYI, there is a "real" red carpet inside the theatre with real press and interviews. Kristen skipped the outside photo area.

LIZ said...

FELLOW FANFICTION FANS: I just heard that author CaraNo's daughter has passed away, was going to be one year old on Christmas Eve. She is one of the most popular fanfic authors out there, lives in Sweden.

Another reason to remind us how fleeting life is...

Stella said...

Holy, thank you for the updates. Paps are awful, no news in that. Kristen looked really beautiful.

Liz, that is really sad. She is one of my favorite FF authors. My thoughts are with her right now.

Everyone out there, have a nice morning/afternoon/night.

tufenuf55 said...

To lose a child is to lose part of your heart that will never mend. I know.

Kristen has gained her weight back. Maybe a little more? Side view of her at premiere. Still wondering if she is preg. Probably not. Just probably eating on the run.

PamH said...

LIZ
OMG that is so sad about CaraNo's daughter, I just couldn't imagine what her family is going through. She is one of my favorite FF authors. That kind of news should put a lot of things in perspective (HATERS) and make people grateful for everyone and everything.


Kristen brought out some color tonight :)



LIZ said...

STELLA -- Yea, really sad about Cara. Can I ask you a question, where do you live? In the US or possibly in Europe? Am curious.

TUF -- We have to remember that cameras add weight .. in person she probably looks like a beanpole but we see a little "tummy" and it makes us wonder. Someone on Twitter said she looks like she's been drinking too many Heineken's ... She's probably been cooking some good stuff for Rob and the family, good for her eating her own cooking. Rob says she just "thinks" about dieting and it's done so she doesn't have to worry about it for her next movie until just before filming starts.

LIZ said...

PAMH -- My friend called me crying, she had seen it on FB. I remember a year ago when she was expecting and her husband went on FB to let everyone know when she gave birth. Just awful news.

Are you still reading In Plain Sight?

Stella said...

Liz, I think you already know where I live... I'm who you think I am.
Hope you're feeling better today.

LIZ said...

STELLA -- Are you kidding me? What a coincidence!!! If I knew where you were from, I just wasn't putting two & two together. Our fandom is such a small world, isn't it great?

Yes, I'm feeling better today, thank you. I mentioned to our "mutual" friend today that you had somehow sent me the flu, LOL. Silver lining is that we were sick before Christmas.

Pisteuo said...

Kami said...

I have been looking at the latest premiere pictures and I think that Kristen looks gorgeous, I think she looks softer and healthy and beautiful. I don't think she has gained weight, I think that since she is no longer visiting the gym daily as she was doing to get ready for the movie she dropped out of, the muscles that she had have soften and people think it's weight gain. I think she's never looked better.

Holy said...

So,it's Cara'S daughter that they're talking about that pass away.I'm praying that her family will be okay.I enjoy reading her stories in FF.

@Liz-I'm glad you're feeling better.

LIZ said...

KAMI -- I agree that Kristen looks gorgeous. Not sure about weight or muscles or whatever, just that she looks amazing.

HOLY - Yea, Cara's daughter, so awful. I remember a year ago at this time she was expecting. I am feeling better, thanks.

LIZ said...

I just saw a photo of a puppy posted by Lizzy Pattinson ... I wonder if Bear and Bernie have a new cousin?

PamH said...

@LIZ
Do you know what happened to CaraNos daughter ?
YES I'm still reading In Plain Sight, I really LOVE it.
As I was scanning through other FF I seen one were Edward is visually impaired but can't remember title or author.

PL said...

Ladies, I'm feeling compelled to say something and I'm not meaning to offend or criticize anyone. I'm just reflecting on our gender in general. Why do we feel we have to criticize someone to build up another? We don't have to say Kirsten Dunst looks frumpy in an effort to make Kristen look better. They both dressed in the way they wanted and I'm sure both felt they looked their best.

The same goes for Kristen's look tonight. She looked happy and healthy. There are many reasons why a person looks as though they are a little heavier when they really aren't. Sometimes it's as simple as posture. Why does it always have to be a pregnancy? I don't understand how women can gossip about each other like I see happening here all the time but its hidden under what you think is support.

Again, I'm not attacking anyone, just trying to make all of us aware that our words have weight.

LIZ said...

PAMH -- Regarding Cara, only thing I've heard is that the baby got sick very, very quickly and that they took her to the hospital yesterday with a fever.

IPS -- so glad you're loving it!!! The author will be pleased ... I hope you are reviewing? I've not heard of one where Edward is visually impaired. I do know of another story where Bella is blind. It's no longer available but I have it. Let me know your email and I'll send it to you.

LIZ said...

PAMH -- I just emailed that fic to you, be on the look-out. I put my name in the subject.

LIZ said...

PL -- As we've all agreed many times, we sometimes will agree to disagree. If you think that what we are doing here is gossiping, then I guess that is what we are doing. Actually, if anyone mentions anything about anyone, it is technically gossip.

Super RN Gas Passer said...

PISTEOU

Thankyou....My friend will be going home from the hospital in a few days and into Hospice care...

Thanks to ALL and hugs to Robert whose friend passed away this week

PL

I appreciate your words and it's so true.

Good Night ALL

Kami said...

Super, if you ever need me, you know where to find me. HUGS!

I agree, and good point, we don't have to tear anyone down in order to build anyone else up. I think both ladies looked wonderful. I personally like Kirsten, I loved her in "Little Women" as Young Amy, and while I am not a fan of "interview with a vampire" my personal choice, I loved her in it. I'm proud of both Kristen and Kirsten. Lovely young ladies.

Ginger with a Soul said...

Back from the concert - Falalala

My heart breaks for Cara - she is an amazing writer and I can't even imagine - not even anywhere in this world can I begin

@Pam - I have an awesome video of the kids singing it's my life - you would love it

@Liz - I hope you are feeling better

Soooo, I don't like the dress she has on tonight - not life changing and not that my opinion matters. I however love her make up, she glows when she wears earthy tones and she has the natural beautiful skin. She looks so happy these days and hopefully she gets some rest although I think I read she another event tomorrow in LA - they shuffled her non stop today with interviews, JS,premiere, and now the after party. I liked her JS outfit lots and I did hear he was very good to her. Oh and Michael Stripe was there at the premiere - Love REM love love.

@Holy - winks I am still trying to go through almost 1000 tweets - maybe some light reading once the kids go to bed - LOL JK

Kenzz said...

Good evening, ladies & gents...

Kristen indeed was glowing at the OTR premiere... (read into that as you will- gossip or fun, its all the same to me when communicated with the best of intentions)

Robert, so very sorry for your loss...

Super, you are the epitome of a supportive friend...

I'm not a fanfic reader, but i have such empathy for the writer who lost her precious child recently...

DK, as usual, your song selections are uplifting, inspirational, and just all-around GOOD...

HUGS to all posters, near & far, and my best wishes to you and your families for a wonderful holiday season!

Pisteuo said...

@Liz- No, it had nothing to do with me. The remark was made by a person dear to me about a person dear to me.
Hope you are feeling much better.

Birdie said...

I have always liked Kirsten and really don't think anyone was putting her down, simply didn't like her dress,nothing more. I certainly don't think Kristen needs any help to build her up. She stands on her own.

PamH said...

@Ginger
I bet they did an amazing job at the concert.
I also wasn't a big fan of the dress, her shoes were really bold...but I Loved the JS outfit and her red DM boots, if I was younger I would so want a pair.
So if Kristen has another event tomorrow do you think she's already left NY?

Holy said...

Kristen did good in John S show,it was quick and I love all the laughing.

Ginger with a Soul said...

@Pam - she just left the after party about 5 mins ago. If my memory serves right it is tomorrow after - Walter will be there too.

Ginger with a Soul said...

@Pam - OMG it was so cute - when I upload the video I will see if I can post it here - they are 3rd-5th graders and they did it so well and they were stomping their little feet. Kids are awesome !!!!

Kami said...

I am sorry if anyone thinks my comments were directed to anyone who has posted here today, I'm not even sure if any of you are talking about what I said or about what someone else has said, but before heading off to bed. Speaking only about what I said, I will state again that I certainly was not talking about anything said here, but off blog, and while I can only speak with conviction about my comments, I would not be surprised if other people were addressing the same situation I was and like me, responded here rather than in a personal email with someone we have no desire to communicate with any longer. LOL I know that's as clear as mud right?

Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, and just because there are people who did not like a dress that Kirsten was wearing is PERFECTLY ok with me, and on the same vein, I thought she looked lovely and expressed my opinion on that. It does not mean I'm right and you're wrong, it means that we are individuals and we ALL do not like the same things. And isn't it a good thing that we don't? Can you imagine how boring life would be if we all liked exactly the same thing? bleh...

The only thing I WILL say in closing is this, not that this was a problem here, but just like there are a huge contingency of people who do not like Kristen based on gossip, speculation or just because she is with Rob, there are also a huge contingency of people who mean well, who love Kristen and who are very protective over her, but in rare situations, they are so zealous in their adoration and defense of Kristen that, they sometimes tear down others to build her up.

I CANNOT and I WILL NEVER believe that Kristen would ever approve of someone doing that on her behalf. I just cannot see her being so petty, I think she is a caring person who would not like to see someone she knows and cares about put down on her behalf. I will state again, I am not talking about anything said here on this blog.

I know it's confusing and I apologize, but please no one take anything I've said personally it is not meant for those who have commented today. The person I am talking to and about knows who they are.

Good night I hope everyone has a wonderful night.

Ginger with a Soul said...

@Pam - I think the pumps were the star of the outfit - the back was pretty but it took me a minute to figure out the front was shorts, like it was backwards skort? It looked retro but yeah to me it was just weird. Kristen likes to try new styles out so it is what it is however I liked the Doc's (I think they are) she changed into for the after party.

Ginger with a Soul said...

@Holy - she was so cute and giggly - she just seems to feel right in her skin and in her life

Ginger with a Soul said...

Cute picture of Kristen with Patti Smith up on Robsten Dreams

PamH said...

It was sad that Kristen had to leave the concert after she was done.
I love her and Josh reuniting for an interview :)

Holy said...

@Ginger-I would like to see the pics/videos of the girls performance.

DreamerKind said...

Friday! Best wishes to all.

Thanks for the lovely comments about the music.

Can't wait to see OTR. Waiting for Cosmopolis DVD, too.

Take care.

Stella said...

LIZ, it certainly is a small world, isn't it? I've very very recently realized who you are myself.
It's a very good thing that we're done with the flu, at least for a while, because I tend to get sick usually two or three times during winder LOL.

Take care, everyone and have a wonderful day.

parker said...

gosh, i thought end of the year meant slowdown since most people would go on vacay, instead it’s work, work & more work – ugh !

i missed the 121212 concert :( but heard it was really awesome with all the rock legends. i didn’t know so many people were hating on the concert performers/presenters. ehh, what wretched lives these people must have to focus on negativity for such a noble cause & during the christmas season at that. we donated to hurricane sandy & only pray it doesn’t happen again or if it does, that there will be people who’d care enough to set up events that would help raise money for the needy. anyway, i heard ticket sales alone raised $30M ! not surprising since madison square garden can seat 20,000 but still some of those prime tickets must have cost several thousands !

@ PL & Kami, i’m thinking along the same lines as you … & something i’ve thought about in past occasions as i start to observe a similar tone & pattern … taking a page from kristen’s “graciousness” book & a cue from Rose’s positive post & this being christmas season, i think taking shots at other people who aren’t rob & kristen, even if this is a R/K site, is uncalled-for. that’s why i like kristen even more now – no resentment, no pettiness, no mean words from her, just graciousness to everyone including those who disparaged her in the past. she’s one hell of a girl.

Super RN Gas Passer said...

Good Morning ROSELAND

Just a quick fly by before I go to work

KAMI. Kirsten D did a fantastic job in OTR and what a beauty!

PARKER. Hi there. Waves. I missed it also. What is wrong with people nowadays? I missed it also...hope to catch some of it on you tube ..if anybody knows a site I cold go to, please let me know.

GINGER. You are the Queen of Cyber...says DK...what say you? Where should I look for the concert?

LIZ. I'm going to wrap my bottle of perfume and put it under the tree. I WILL NOT open it til Christmas Eve...I WILL. NOT....well....maybe not:). Hope you are felling better.

KENZZ. happy Holidays to you and your family and stay warm up ere

STELLA. I am glad you are feeling better . I ,took the flu shot this year even though I am very conflicted about it, But then my mind goes back many years ago...1980.. To be exact and I had the flu for 2 weeks and wished for death...so whatever negative side effects occur from the shot I doubt it could be as bad as that.

ALI MAC. How are you? I haven't seen you on lately

Hi PAM, HOLY, TUF,BIRDIE, and anyone I may have missed

Have a GREAT FRIDAY ALL!!

Super RN Gas Passer said...

OOPS

Sorry for all the typos..Maybe I better have another cup of coffee

ANNIE. It looks like nice weather today in the city

Pisteuo said...

Good morning Roseland!
Hope you all have a wonderful week-end.

Kami-I'm pretty sure you did not think my comment had anything to do with your's...but, wanted to clarify that my comments had absolutely nothing to do with what anyone here said. My comment was about a comment about someone's child, at an event I was at this week.
Anyway...just wanted to clear that up.
Hugs to Roseland!

parker said...

hey there Super, there are some bits & pieces of clips on youtube – haven’t watched them all yet. but i haven’t seen one that’s from start to finish. i guess cos it was for 5 hrs? hopefully a channel will replay it. i’ve just gotten into classic rock & “comfortably numb” is becoming a favorite – when i hear it, i just have to stop, listen & not do anything. gosh, it would’ve been so cool being at madison square listening to roger waters & eddie vedder sing it live.

Ginger with a Soul said...

Morning Ladies

Super - you can go to this link and it has the performances broken down - i haven't found anything that has the concert as a whole in one video yet and I wonder if that is because they might sell it as a DVD for more funds

http://www.youtube.com/user/fuse

Another shooting at a school and although no children were hurt they are never going to have that out of their heads. I made a comment to my boss that I am almost terrified to go in crowds right now because I fear the unstable people that really believe the end of the world is coming in 7 days and what actions they want to pull off before the 21st.

Good morning everyone.

Kristen is heading home to Rob/Bear/Bernie.She's finally done with OTR promo's.

Pisteuo, lol you're correct my comments weren't directed towards you, I somehow missed your comments last night and after having read them, I cannot anyone reading what you said and not completely understanding where you're coming from. I find myself getting very emotional for some reason whenever my friend tells me about her children. Seeing her love for them, makes me emotional.

On the subject of children. Have you all been listening to the latest school shooting. 20 people killed and 10 of them children. I will never, as long as I live understand who someone could do something so unbelievably evil. Shooting anyone at all is horrible but those innocent babies murdered. I can't wrap my head around this. Everyone please say a prayer for the victims, their families, friends, bystanders and those babies who witnessed this.

Kami said...

Ginger, I am like you shocked and heartbroken. These are LITTLE kids, how can anyone do this?

Ginger with a Soul said...

@Kami - I don't understand it at all. The count keeps going up - 27 dead 18 children. I just don't understand the world we live in sometimes. Half of us are glued to updates at work with tears in our eyes - these poor families and the poor babies. It sickens me to the core

Ginger with a Soul said...

Kami - there was another incident where 22 children were stabbed in a school in China this morning too. Children - I just don't understand and I never will

Hi Everyone

How horrendous is this news of another school shooting! and so many fatalities!!! I have no words to express how atrocious this is. Prayers for anyone affected by this tragedy..

Super thanks for asking, I'm good, just busy at this time of year. Thinking of your friend and you at this difficult time (())

Ginger with a Soul said...

From the sound of it the principle hit the PA system so that the teachers could hear the altercation so they could protect the kids. The 18 children that were killed are between the ages of 5-10 ...Babies and my heart is absolutely broken for them all.

ali mac said...

GINGER The hairs are standing up on my neck listening to it all!!

LIZ said...

Hi All -- God, this just gets worse all the time. I was just watching an interview with one of the parents whose child survived. She said that they told the other 20 parents at the same time that their children were dead. I can't imagine....

Kami said...

This is so shocking, I think the only other time I remember being as completely overwhelmed and confused was on 9/11. That someone would go into a school any school, but where the oldest child would be no more than 10 years old and begin killing is hard to wrap my mind around. This is the face of pure evil, it has to be. BABIES

LIZ said...

KAMI -- Shocking is that only word I can find right now. I still remember where I was and what I was doing when I heard about Columbine ... And, or course, on 9/11 ...

Kami said...

Columbine...oh God how horrible that was, I was in a state of shock. When we found out it was students who carried that out, it was so shocking, then Virginia Tech.

Gabby Gifford's political rally...all so horrible.

THIS one is so shocking in the sense that it was an adult who did this, an adult, at least 20 years old who did this, the thought that someone could hurt an innocent Child is hard to believe but innocent CHILDREN between the ages of 5-10 is hard for me to comprehend and the last time I felt so utterly overwhelmed was 9/11. EVIL disgusting, vile cowardly act.

Ginger with a Soul said...

Kami/Liz - Columbine was really hard on me only because we 1st saw it on the monitors at work then as co-workers left in a hurry as they had children at school there and were waiting to see if they were alright. I was actually nervous for a long time to send the kids to school o 4/20 because of this. This tough - I cannot even comprehend - I 3 kids in elementary school and none of them would even know how to react in this situation and they are little kids - I would never want a kid to have to know what to do in a war zone. He may have stolen 27 lives but he destroyed the innocence of 600 people in that school and broke a nations heart. This is just beyond the realm of human understanding how you could look at a little child - a gift and harm them.

Kami said...

Killing babies, I don't understand how this happens.

I have friends and family members who are teachers, today I'm very grateful that they are no where near this tragedy.

DreamerKind said...

Just heard the awful shooting news! Horrible. What can be done to help?
Waiting for guidance and praying for those suffering.

parker said...

i had been watching the news regarding the shooting. i'm crying for the little kids and adults who were the victims of this senseless shooting. praying for them and their families and friends. what a really sad day.

LIZ said...

The shooter's roommate is also dead.

Ginger with a Soul said...

Total dead now is 28. 20 children + 6 adults at school, 1 adult at another location, and gunman himself. The actual shooter was 20 and the 24 yr old brother is in custody as an accomplice.

LIZ said...

GINGER -- gets crazier by the minute. I saw the president, I swear he almost looked green, he was so upset.

LIZ said...

I'm checking out for awhile, have to run an errand to get medicine for my Dad.

Kami said...

The shooter shot his mother and then turned the gun on her classroom, which is where the largest number of deaths were. She was a Kindergarten teacher. 5 year olds.

As for guns, I am from Texas, I have three in my house...put away and if I need to protect myself I will....having said that, gun control, putting in safeguards to keep people who are mentally ill or criminals from buying guns, or by making someone wait 7 days to get a gun, might prevent a tragedy since someone has time to calm down during that time. Like I told my husband a few minutes ago in an argument about this...how can telling someone law abiding citizen that they need to wait a few days to pick up their gun be wrong?

I am frankly sick to death of hearing people say "IF guns kill people then pencils cause kids to fail tests, spoons are responsible for people getting fat" I've never once seen a pencil or a spoon go off accidentally and kill anyone.

PamH said...

I've been shopping with hubby all day and hadn't seen any news so until I checked in here and seen the post I had no idea about the shootings....soooo sad...it makes you almost scared to let your children leave the house :( I don't understand what is going on in this world, there have been so many tragedies happening and to envolve helpless children...tragic

Caroline said...

My heart goes out to all of you in the States. I had my own nightmare in 1998 when 35 people were killed in Tasmania and some children were actively targeted by the gunman. It took the community a long time to recover and many are permanently scared. I never liked John Howard as a Prime Minister but I will be forever grateful he acted decisively and brought in some of the strictest gun control laws in the world, and thank God we have never had anything remotely like this ever happen since..
