Hi everyone! First of all, I would like to apologise for neglecting to post last Saturday – I’ve been verrah busy with editing, and will be until January, so time management is a bitch right now I’m afraid :/ But, fret not, for I am here today!
It saddens me that I didn’t think to post anything meaningful on Saturday November 19th!
Why, you ask? Well, I shall tell you. Because the day before was Friday 18th November, and we all know what happened on that day, don’t we?! Children In Need was on telly! Instead of venturing out to watch BD part 1, I stayed in to watch Children In Need, eat chocolate and lounge around in my jimjams. What I should have been doing then was CELEBRATING SIX YEARS WITH ROB!!!
Yes, you heard that right, kids! Friday 18th November was my six year Faniversary, but it completely slipped my mind! *Facepalm* So today, I intend to celebrate in the company of all you lovely ladies. Better late than never, right?! RIGHT?!! Oh God…let’s just go with it!
Back on 18th November 2005, which coincidentally was also a Friday, good old GMTV (not that poncy rubbish Daybreak *shakes fist*) had their entertainment news on…just before I was due out the door. Presenter Jenny Falconer announced that she was at the London premiere of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. I refused to move from the kitchen – I needed to see this! New Potter film – score! *Wipes nostalgic tear from eye* Little did I know that staying in the kitchen to watch the new Potter premiere would impact on the next six years of my life. At around 1:09, I became an official Rob fangirl:
Just for kicks and nostalgic dirty giggles, let’s get a closer look at GoF premiere Rob:
*Giggles* Rupert Grint and his blue velvet jacket…they match. Bros. Oh now wait just a minute….look at that tall drink of water! *Fans self* Sex Hair, chiseled features, open shirt….*Monica Geller-Bing voice* leather pants, have mercy!
QUICK, NURSE, THE SCREENS!!!
Watching GoF, I couldn’t stop thinking about how ‘cute’ he was…then Cedric died. That did not please me. Not one bit. But it was okay because I knew it was just a film
I will hold my hands up and admit that I didn’t really think about him much after that – I just thought ‘oh, he was pretty, wonder if he’ll be in any films again soon?’ *Shrugs*. It wasn’t really that important. Hollywood and its industry of chance would provide soon enough, though – I started reading the Twilight series after hearing so much about it from a then-friend. I was so dedicated to finishing the series that I stayed away from my family at Christmas, tucked up on the sofa in the conservatory reading Eclipse and shouting at the pages when Edward left Bella. I finished the series on New Year’s Day, glad to have a new series under my belt. Then came the announcement of the Twilight Saga films. I squee’d. Finally, a chance to see this world come to life! This should be interesting…
…and indeed it was. I received an email from my then-friend some weekends after, talking about the casting of ‘Twilight’, and how the hot bloke who played Cedric Diggory was going to be Edward Cullen.
*Goes quickly to Google to see what he looks like now*
SWEET BABY JESUS IN A GYMNASIUM!
This is now one of my favourite pictures of him. That Google search marked the beginning of many sleepless nights and ridiculously early mornings getting up and refusing to eat breakfast until Rob had been interviewed on GMTV or This Morning. My Rob Fix began – if I didn’t have my daily dose of Pattinson, I would frantically search the internet, trying to find some new pics. Eventually those first few pictures I saved became the fantastic and crazy organised RobPorn archive that I am CONVINCED has crashed the laptop at least twice.
I no longer stay up at ridiculous hours just to see him on TV – I record that and watch it at leisure on weekends, when I can really appreciate a good bit of The Pretty
I have never seen him in the flesh yet, either. Maybe one day I’ll be lucky enough to have that chance!
I no longer call him ‘cute’ – I have an entirely new dictionary of Rob Vocab, all because one day I stumbled upon the now fallen Random Acts of Rob, the place which reassured me that my Robsession was completely normal – I fit in there. Friends found it hard to tolerate my crazy plan for a zombie invasion involving barricading ourselves in the Trafford Centre and drawing up a rota for sex with Rob…but once I got in regular contact with some of the RAoR women, I was finally able to share that plan, as well as write fanfiction and compare notes with new friends. Soon, perving became a part of my routine – in the early days it bookended my day. Now, not so much. I had many moments of waining Rob Mojo because I had to manage my time and often sacrifice perving time. But every November 18th for the last six years, I took a day out of the madness to remember how and why I fell in love with Rob. Up until this year, that is – the first year, I went through my RobPorn folder and stared at pictures for hours. As the years went on, I celebrated by perving and watching his films. Then last year, we hit five years, and I wrote a poem. This year, I watched Children In Need instead…so I shall make up for it and close the post with this:
A lot has happened in six years – I’ve lost friends, made new ones, and found my cyberhome, to name but a few things – but more importantly, having Rob as a part of my life for the last six years has made me realise many things about myself and my life – meeting new friends through Rob has given me a new confidence, a new edge, and a little more happiness. But perhaps the most important thing of all is this – Rob has made me realise what I want from my life, and what I want in a man.
Rob, don’t ever change. You’ve been a part of my life for six years, and through all that time, I have come to knkow that you are so kind, funny, sweet, handsome, intelligent, silly, wonderful, talented and many many other adjectives that I could continue to list from here to eternity, and I couldn’t love you more.
Peace, love and RobPorn!
