The afternoon started off with the growing excitement of seeing Robert Pattinson in person! Which for me was a first and for DbyRP a third sighting (lucky), both of us were so excited. It’s always more fun when you get to share that experience with a true Rob H00R!! We nonchalantly made our way to the theater, browsing stalls and chatting. When we got near the entrance they started hustling us along and herding the cattle towards the metal detectors. We’re still not sure what the hurry was all about.
Well, we got in the theater, found our seats and took a look around. The set was amazing! We seemed close to
the stage but were oh so far away! The first thing we did was grab our binoculars and start scouring the front seats. They were pretty empty! Eventually the screaming began but the people (teens) that were coming in were not any we recognized. Then I spotted Taylor Lautner and started to get excited. Because who would be coming soon after him but Rob, right? WRONG!!!! After hours (lit ‘rally) of looking at the seats and watching the celebs play musical chairs we started to give up. There was no Rob in sight and Justin Bieber had just one Choice Hottie (WTForks?!) It was starting to look bleak. Maybe Rob was only going to be with the entire Twilight cast?
Shortly after that we heard Choice Vampire was coming up. Dazzledbyrp thought Ian Somerhalder was going to win but I told her to get her camera ready, just in case. As most of you know already, we were ecstatically surprised to see the winner announced and strut on stage. ThePretty, HHH himself… Robert Freakin Pattinson!!!!
To be able to watch him with “my real eyes” (as I like to say) was surreal. When you are there in the audience it is so difficult to hear what the celebs are saying. There is so much screaming and talking it’s really crazy. I heard Rob’s voice. (Awwww) But we had no idea what he was saying! We finally realized he was talking about something serious!! CANCER. After rewatching later at home (a must to reallysee/hear properly) we saw what a terrific job he did! We’re not really sure what happened next. The second watching, showed we missed a really great band. How did we miss that? We were sitting right there! Ummm, I did mention we saw Rob with our real eyes, right? Does that cover it for you?
Next up, who knows really, but I saw Rob in his seat again. I watched him for a few moments through my binoculars before I started to get a little creeped out by the stalker-ness of it all. We snapped some pics and just enjoyed the view. He was quickly up again for Choice Actor in WFE (yay!!) and we got to hear some Classic Rob: “I’m really nervous. This is scary, teenagers are scary.” Yep, perfect thing to say to an auditorium of teenagers, Rob. But that’s why we love you! Do you know how hard it is to decide if you should watch him with your real eyes, with binoculars or take pics with your camera?! Well, we settled for a little of both! The pics in this post were taken by both dazzledbyrp and myself. Hope you enjoy “our”view and our story!
