Hello Ladies (and Rob)! Robs Fan-tasy has graciously allowed me to help her out while she deals with Real Life. So, I thought that maybe you should get to know me a little and what better way than how I became Robsessed! Here’s my story…
My first Rob encounter, like many of you, happened while watching The Goblet of Fire. But I was married at the time and Rob was seventeen and I hadn’t had a celeb crush since Mark-Paul Gosselar. So, no sparks there. Fast forward a few years and I was no longer married, reading a book that a co-worker recommended. The book had no jacket cover. I knew nothing about the book except for it’s name…Twilight.
I was immediately engrossed in this book. I love to read, so that wasn’t that hard to do! And when real life sucks, books become your escape. Needless to say, I fell in love with Edward Cullen. He was the perfect gentleman, a musician, and so enamored with the woman/girl he loved. But that didn’t last long. There were things about Edward that were not so endearing. He was controlling, domineering and not very enthusiastic or fun. Edward was not the perfect man either.
I saw Twilight in the theater, thought Rob did a good job and was pleasantly surprised to hear he actually played the piano. But no, the Robsession didn’t start there either. I bought the DVD on the premise that the other movies would get better. I wasn’t that impressed with Twilight as a movie. But then I started to watch the DVD extras and as they say, “the rest is history.”
Rob was so humble in his interviews and behind the scenes extras. I couldn’t help but to be curious. I hadn’t seen an actor with such humbleness in a long time. I kept watching and found he was terribly funny. He not only played piano but guitar as well. Let’s just say I have a weakness for guitar players! I also have a thing for British boys and all things British. That accent…GAH!! I was done!
From that moment on I couldn’t stop Robsessing. I watched YouTube videos, searched the webs and even started to comment on blogs(that was a first!). I have corrupted both my nephews who are now 5 and 3. One of the three-year old’s first words was “Pattinson.” They call “Woburt Pattason” on their pretend phones. I have no idea what they talk about but it’s fun to watch.
Both Twilight and Rob have helped me through a difficult time in my life. I needed to escape and they were just what I needed! One of the great things about this Twi/Robsession is the wonderful friends I have made. They have become some of my greatest friends and I am so grateful for them and their support.
Another thing I owe to Rob is my renewed desire to play guitar and act. I’m not very diligent at either but I’m working on it. I went to the open casting call for Water for Elephants but didn’t get in. Not sure why, but it obviously wasn’t meant to be. I am also on a mission to see Rob “in the flesh”. But I promise to behave, I don’t want to be on “the list”!
Well now that you know a little about me, I can’t wait to help assist in your Robsession and bring you lots of the man we know as thePretty.
A special thanks to Roslyn Selene for making my new signature icon! I love it ❤
