Kicking it old Twilight Old School: Pieces of Flair

Kickin' It Old School TwilightDear Twilight,

If you know me, and I think by now you do, you know that sometimes I like to start a blog “series” that I never remember to do for a second time. Today is one of those days. Except that I hope to remember to write a letter like this again because I had a lot of fun crafting this one. We’re gonna KICK IT OLD SCHOOl, TWILIGHT-STYLE & bring back a topic, discussion or something fun from Twilight in the past. Today’s topic: Pieces of Flair.

You know you had them- You thought it was cool. You just saw the movie. Or you just finished the books & you wanted to share with the world via your Facebook page that You were on TEAM EDWARD (or You were one of the proud
“WOLF GIRLS”) and so what better way to do it? Pieces of Flair- yep, useless small “Buttons” you can barely read that you post on your Facebook wall, but then disappear 30 seconds later, never to be found again, but give you a good 15 seconds of pure joy & laughter before they’re gone.

I did it. Moon did it. And we spent an embarrassingly amount of time looking up Twilight flair, laughing at it (and even creating some Flair of our own)

I completely forgot about this “Old School” Twilight activity- mostly because they disappeared from my wall & I had no idea where they went- until we got this email from LTT reader & friend allryans about the beginning of her Twi-obsession:

Twilight bookwormNov 08
TheBFF: I just got your Pieces of Flair…hilarious.
Me: The Bookworms Against Twilight one? Yes, I’m sure [random mutual Twihard acquaintance] won’t understand.
TheBFF: My favorite is the Narnia one.
Me: “I just read Twilight and now I can’t get into Narnia – Susan Pevensie” HA
TheBFF: “I just read Twilight, so Voldemort wins. – Harry Potter”
Me: Those are the best.
TheBFF: I cannot bring myself to read those books.
Me: Ugh, anything that [random mutual Twihard acquaintance] likes that much has to be complete shit. Her favorite song is Jessie’s Girl.

March 22, 2009
Me: [Good guy friend] told me he rented Twilight and LIKED it. I’m removing him from Facebook.
TheBFF: Deserved.

March 28, 2009
TheBFF: You’re going to kill me. My sister rented Twilight tonight.
Me: Don’t do it.
TheBFF: She wants to watch it.
Me: You’re dead to me.

…. three hours later …

TheBFF: It really wasn’t that bad.
Me: And the sparkles?
TheBFF: THAT was bad. But I like vampire movies. So it was good for me.
Me: DEFRIEND

April 7, 2009
Me: I have a confession to make, and you may never be my friend after this.
TheBFF: Doubtful.
Me: I have just spent the past 10 hours READING TWILIGHT (and I’m going back for more).
TheBFF: I do not believe you.
Me: I’m serious. [My husband] rented it this weekend, and I caved and watched it with him. Then when he went to work yesterday, I WATCHED IT AGAIN.
Me: THEN I went to WalMart and bought the book (and the dvd). OMG.
Me: I even went to WalMart so my regular bookstore lady wouldn’t see me buying it, and I could hide it under a box of Capri-Suns.
TheBFF: YOU ARE [random mutual Twihard acquaintance] !!
Me: I hate myself.
Me: But God help me, I love Edward.

A week later, I was gorging on Rob interviews and lurking on LTT.
I still hate [random mutual Twihard acquaintance] though. Idiot. – allryans

Amazing. Do you know what else is amazing? I have 55 pieces of Useless Flair on Facebook – 35 of them are somehow related to Twilight. Yes, 63%. Yes I’m 27 years old. Yes, I am so very proud!!!!

Take a quick look at the amazingness that is my Twilight Flair:

How 2nd-hand embarrassed of me are you that all of those have been (hidden somewhere) on Facebook attached to ME for the past 2+ years?

And in case you’re wondering what the 411 is on new Facebook Flair (since I last added some), here is a sampling:

Oh & don’t worry- I sent Moon some great Robsten flair yesterday too, for old times sake!

of COURSE we made LTT flair long ago!

Long live Twilight flair (of course I didn’t delete a SINGLE piece!)

XO,

      Oh god I do this as well, I did a psychology degree and I was psychoanalysing all the characters all the way through the books and movies… I think if my friends hear “you know that’s just like this bit in twilight…” one more time they may send me to rehab…

        Yep. A little education is a dangerous thing. Twilight is universally applicable in all professions and concentrations of study.

          I have trouble in my line of work connecting it. But then again, I haven’t really tried. I’m sure with a little bit of effort, it’ll happen.

    • ladyofthemeadow

      Oh, me too. Like last night. Did anyone else catch Lynette saying, “That’s normal!” to Renee on Desperate Housewives, when they were planning to redecorate Tom’s office?

      I just about jumped off the couch when I heard it.

      • MariaCecilia

        Yup, me too. But I’ve learned to just do it around the house, because if I do it around friends I just get a no-reaction stare and a change of subject. Sniff. I am sooo lonesoooome!

        • ladyofthemeadow

          I do it around the house and on LTT/LTR… those are my safe outlets! I can do it around friends but I kinda have to filter it. Otherwise they think I’m not normal (imagine that!)

          • http://twitter.com/pineylonesome natteringyeahrobber

            I saw WFE with a friend on Saturday. Before the movie started, I was telling her all about how Rob had a cold during the sex scene (told her to look for snot), Tai’s extensive acting experience, Rob’s quotes from press junkets, etc… She was very impressed that I knew so much, but she was also a little freaked out. I sometimes forget that other people don’t follow him (or Twilight) like I do.

            Oh, and there was a woman sitting in front of us who did not know who Robert Pattinson is. Her conversation with her friend went something like this:

            Friend: Looking forward to seeing Robert Pattinson
            Clueless Friend: Who is that?
            Friend: You have to be kidding me.
            Clueless Friend: No, really, who is it?
            Friend: The Twilight actor, Edward. Ring any bells?
            Clueless Friend: Oh, some of my students have read that book.
            Friend: Oy. Need to get you out more often.

            ~Movie starts. Various actors start appearing. Enter the scene with Holbrook talking to the younger circus manager guy.~

            Clueless friend: Is that Rob? The manager?
            Friend: Uh, no. You’ll know Rob when you see him.

            ~Enter scene of Jacob at parent’s house.~

            Clueless friend: OH. OH. Oh my god, you are right. He’s very attractive!
            Friend: Told you.

            Hahaha! Excellent overheard conversation. I love it. “You’ll know Rob when you see him.” Yes, when your mouth starts to water at the sight of his jawline. That’s the guy.

            I have been trying to get my aesthetician to get into Twilight (yes, I am proselytizing to the lady who waxes my brows. don’t ask how we get into these conversations, we just do. we have a long-term relationship) Anyway, what makes this even a little bit funny is that she is gay, and she watched the movie and her only response was, “Robert Pattinson looked like shit. He is way hotter than that.” SIGH, I KNOW. I told her to read the book first so you can ignore the terrible lighting, but NO. Nobody listens to me.

          • http://twitter.com/pineylonesome natteringyeahrobber

            He didn’t look great in Eclipse or NM. I thought he looked best in the first Twilight. But then Remember Me = much better and now WFE = good luck not gasping out loud.

            It was a good audience. At least in terms of conversations I overheard. The guy behind us had a thing for Reese (“now that is a woman” he says to his friend). There were actually lots of guys in the audience (maybe all Letters to Reese dudes?).

          • JustGoWithIt

            I loved Reese in this movie for sure. I loved her hair. I loved her bedazzled nylon outfits. I thought her body looked amazing. I have sort of an olden times look to me, so whenever I see a movie with that kind of hair (or finger waves!!! or short flapper bobs with hats!!!) I immediately want to look like that every day. Thankfully I did fight the urge to dye my hair blonde. That could have been a disaster. I am much more Bella than Elle.

          • Anonymous

            Reese was gorgeous, but she is still Tracy Flick to me. It is hard for me to see her in a drama.

          • http://twitter.com/pineylonesome natteringyeahrobber

            I would look completely ridiculous with platinum blonde hair.

            I do think there were a few scenes where she was wearing outfits so tight that you could…see things. I wasn’t sure of what I was seeing but guy behind me noticed too (“dude, are you seeing what i’m seeing?”).

          • JustGoWithIt

            I didn’t notice things. Maybe because I was hair fixated. And looking at Mr. Paddleston. I might have seen a nipple or two. I’m going to assume “things” means some part of cooter though (I just watched Welcome to the Rileys, who just opened a can of tuna?), because it is a given that you’re going to see a nip or two if chick is wearing silk crepe and nylon the entire movie.

          • http://twitter.com/pineylonesome natteringyeahrobber

            Ok, I’ll just say it. Camel toe. Maybe it was just a deep seam or something.

          • JustGoWithIt

            I look okay blonde coloring wise, and I have been bleach blonde when it was really short. But I have hair that holds frizz like it is going out of style (ha), so any damage is not cool. After seeing Moulin Rouge I dyed my hair bright orange, and it wasn’t that short, and only the roots really took the color. So I had to wear scarves until I re-dyed it. I got a good idea from somewhere (I’m looking at you pink) to dye parts of my hair lavender in college. The bleach worked great, looked okay as it was, and then I put the purple on. Turned washed out terrible grey. Again, a trip to the salon was needed. So I am glad I did not go to the bad place again…

          • JustGoWithIt

            I tried to get my mom in law to read Twilight while she was visiting this last week. I even assigned her the first chapter to read. She reads all kinds of stuff, and not all of it is high literature, so I thought it was worth a try. HOW DO PEOPLE RESIST!?
            I was unsuccessful. She left without the book.

            Ha! I got my co-worker/friend to read Midnight Sun by offering to by her lunch when she was done reading it. Then I give her a pop quiz and answer her questions. It gives her something to read at work with it’s slow and you can’t tell it’s not work related. i think she is going to read Twilight when she is done.

          • MariaCecilia

            My mother-in-law has listened to me rave about the books and the only thing she ever does is wait until I get the DVD:s of the Twilight movies and borrow them – without my permission! Commenting afterwards that they were “okay”. That woman!!

          • ladyofthemeadow

            “OH. OH. Oh my god, you are right. He’s very attractive!” Haha, I’ll have to wait and see what auditory delights I will overhear.

            Sadly, I still haven’t seen WFE, between bestie who got the plague and then her hubby had to work (my pleas for everyone NOT to visit the Emerg Room evidently were not heeded). Holy crapsten, I have to practically line up the planets myself to go see this movie.

            Yes, Twilight Edward was the most attractive ever.

            I never feel the need to “turn” other people to the joys of Rob or Twilight. In fact the opposite. I want the world to stop noticing them so I can have more to myself. Except you guys, of course.

            I don’t try to turn friends. Friends don’t let friends go down the Robsessed path. “Here’s some utter madness, it’s an unpaid full time job, you want a piece?”

            But. On the other hand, what is 1 more when there are already 1 billion.

            You’re right. There are too many people in the world liking Rob and Twilight. The only thing we can do is hold out until they all die of old age. Or we do. Whatever comes first.

            Unfortunately in my case I know what’s going to come first.

          • Anonymous

            I saw WFE this past weekend too and couldn’t watch that scene without thinking about what Reece said about his nasty cold during filming. Was she trying to ruin if for us or make him seem more down to earth? I was a little disappointed with the scene. The music often sets the mood for a scene and it sucked during that scene – way too quiet.

          • http://twitter.com/pineylonesome natteringyeahrobber

            I had a WWCCD (what would cath coug do) moment during that scene. I would not want her to direct that movie, but maybe she could have taken over for the sex scene. I have a feeling it would have been steamier. And maybe no music. Like in Twilight, when you can just hear smooching and grunting. Rob could have worked all sorts of throaty grunts into that scene, plus more heavy breathing since he was most likely breathing entirely through his mouth.

          • TeamSeth

            The grunting is what’s hot. I think you just nailed it. Well, and the pushing her down on the bed and taking over. What’s hotter than a guy in a tight Banana Republic tee throwing you down on the bed after saying “I just wanna try one thing.” …and then another thing, and another, and another. Yeah, Coug knew what was up.

            On that note, I’ve noticed in some of the pics from BD that Rob’s back in the tight tee… I guess Condon reads LTT. (or any other site)

          • Anonymous

            Yes. Grunting. Gasping. All of those are better than any stupid soundtrack.
            And YES. Tshirt!Pattz. RPattz rocks the casual wear. (although, have we discussed the nerdy striped shirt in that one photo? Casual does not equal Business Casual, Mr. Condon.)

          • http://twitter.com/pineylonesome natteringyeahrobber

            Alice must have been off duty when his bags were packed. Or maybe she was too busy loading Bella’s bag up with tassels, cheese wheels and lime colored bikinis. Or maybe all the stores in Forks carry only flannel so Edward had to place an emergency Land’s End overnight order before going on a honeymoon to a warmer location.

          • MariaCecilia

            Yes, what was with that shirt?? I guess it was his turn to have a “bad costume day”. Bella had hers the day with the bikini.. And the wardrobe department buys them drinks afterwards, when everyone’s done laughing…

          • Anonymous

            Yeah, it didn’t really have any chemistry to me. I was bored during it. It probably didn’t help that I kept thinking about how Reese is like 10 years older than him and played his mother in a deleted scene in Vanity Fair. Not hot :-/

          • Anonymous

            I thought about that too. But then if the roles were switched and the guy
            was ten years older than the girl, would we think the same? Maybe we think
            about it because she’s a mom and that tends to make her seem older than if
            she wasn’t.

            Does anyone else see “WTF” when they read “WFE”?

          • http://twitter.com/pineylonesome natteringyeahrobber

            Yes. Someone on LTR once wrote WTF instead of WFE once. A legendary mistake. We were talking about creating an LA tour bus for Rob fans. One of the stops was going to be the WFE filming location. Instead of WFE tour bus she wrote WTF tour bus. Which turned into the “bedazzled come-hither scented WTF-LTR-mobile.”

            Ahh, the hot pocket scented WTF-LTR mobile! Must work get to work on that with Maggie. It so needs to be our new project!!

          • natteringyeahrobber

            Yes. And he’s stated chicken tikka is his new favorite. Although in some magazine he said chicken kebab is is favorite. He changes his favorite food story every day, but I think you’ll be safe with chicken and hot pocket odors. Maybe get a license plate that reads FREEFUD or something. Or maybe just get one of those cars that runs on used vegetable oil. Just ask an Indian restaurant for a barrel of whatever is leftover and cruise LA. The exhaust will attract Rob, plus you’ll be all eco and stuff.

        Hmm… maybe I’ve been reading too much FF, because I also caught Lynette say, “this looks like the Master of the Universe playroom.”

        I was like, “Did I just hear a MOTU reference?! I wonder which of the Desperate Housewives writers reads Twilight FF.”

        • ladyofthemeadow

          YESSSS this is what I was trying to remember. There was a “That’s normal” in there too, but the MOTU reference was so striking it evidently blew a few brain cells and I couldn’t remember it this morning. Thanks for remembering it!

        • MariaCecilia

          I just read Rob’s interview in EW on WFE and he talked about playing a “masters-of-the-universe” guy in upcoming Cosmopolis. Soo, Rob DOES read FF, huh? Probably good for his prepping for that particular role…

        My family loves me too much to have me committed for my Twilight referencing. But there has been some head patting and pitying looks, let me tell you..

    • Sagalvr

      Me too! My friend ordered a Cosmo, and I started telling her about Cosmopolis and how Rob’s going to be in it. Totally normal. Also, I got the book and it is an awful exercise in me forcing myself to read. Is anyone else trying to read that piece of flair, because it is the worst book I have ever picked up. Oh well, I guess I’ll just wait for the movie (!) ;P
      P.S. I have a piece of flair from a vendor fair. There is a company called Gold Bio (that makes antibodies for lab people like me) and this pin says “Edward would choose GoldBio over Bella” in huge letters. I was the only one who freaked out, grabbed the button and started telling the clueless sales rep how Edward would never choose anything over Bella. Then I bought some antibodies to cover my shame…

      • http://twitter.com/pineylonesome natteringyeahrobber

        But maybe Edward chose GoldBio in order to save Bella. Just like parents are supposed to cover their faces with the oxygen masks on an airplane (in event of emergency) before covering their children’s faces. He has a choice: either die and not save Bella or choose GoldBio and then save her. Maybe when they were out frolicking/coital relating in the countryside they sucked the blood out of a mad cow. GoldBio to the rescue. “Without GoldBio, Renesmee would be an orphan!” – maybe that might be a better pin.

        You didn’t like Cosmopolis? I liked it; it was a very masculine book. Short, Hemingway-like sentences: “what.” (dude stop saying “what”. okay except it’s weirdly hot. okay say “what” again.)

        But, I do that, too, as if everyone in the world knows what all the Twilight cast is doing. Me: “Oh, you are going to Toronto for that conference? Maybe you will see bits of the Swan house!” Them: “There is a house of swans? That is in bits?” Me: “um. Yes?”

        • Sagalvr

          Haha, everyone should be able to recite Twicast news with a minimum of effort.
          And I really am still trying with Cosmopolis and his asymmetric prostate. What. I am in the middle/towards end. Please tell me something happens. Or don’t. A masculine book is a good way to put it; why I don’t understand men and why I cannot get a handle on this novel/character/plot are my same character flaws. Like asking Jessica Stanley to think only kind thoughts, or telling Angela Weber to trash talk.

          • Anonymous

            Let’s just think soothing thoughts of Robert Pattinson getting a prostate exam in a moving limousine. If you don’t like it already, it won’t win you over. What. The word skyscraper is so outdated.

            I sort of thought the book was a lot about words, and their meanings. The only example I can remember is the skyscraper one, but I know there are more. A lot of internal stuff going on. I have no idea how they will do some of it on film.

            Also, yeah, boys are weird. I suppose that is why I like reading “masculine” stuff now and then, to sort of try to figure out why they are…just so Like That. :)

        • MariaCecilia

          I liked Cosmopolis too, but then I fell for Hemingway when I was fifteen, so maybe that was predictable? It will make for a weird movie though…but I guess Cronenberg knows his weird? What I can’t wait for is to see what Rob will make of his character: exciting and difficult and possibly in a new range for him!

          • Anonymous

            Yeah, “A Clean, Well Lighted Room” is one of my favorite short stories. And I am good with weird, too, although when I think of Cronenberg I always think of that terrible head-explody movie. I think RPattz can do weird pretty well, and he needs to get away from Leading Man Kissy Movies. (partly because I don’t really like kissy movies. It’s all about me, really.)

      Then, I am joining your club, because I am all types of confused.
      As I child of the 80′s, I thought they were pins, like we used to put on our jean jackets in middle school. I had a fine collection of New Kids on the Block. (I am so lame.)

      They are hilarious, though!! I LOVED the Jacob and Mike, Wedding Crashers and the Jasper’s Diary entry!

        If they were actual pins I would wear some of them…just like when I was a kid. Twilight brings out your inner child. :-)

        • Stacey

          My sister actually sent me one that she found at some little art store. It’s a very small pin of a closeup of Bella and Edward in the meadow of Eclipse. Their first scene. The pin has been residing in my jewelry box and not on my clothing. So some things have changed from when I was 13.

        Yes, these look like those pins I would buy at the record store in the mall in 1982! I bought Duran Duran ones and put them on my jean jacket. I was going to marry John Taylor, and my BFF was going to marry Simon LeBon. Ah, good times.
        And I just had a scary thought (for me) that some of you LTT’rs were just being born at that point. Love ya!
        I am not on Facebook and I am not getting Twitter until Rob does.

          I had a pin that said, “I had sex with Nick Rhodes”. I was going to say, “sadly, it was not true”, but then I remembered that I was 13 at the time, and that would have been highly illegal and creepy.

          I have seen Duran Duran live 5 times.

            Bwahaha on the Nick pin. And jealous of your concert attendance. Any VIP tix in there? I have only seen them once, on the astronaut tour, does it count if Andy Taylor wasn’t there? I think it still does. My aforementioned BFF and I let out our inner 13 year old fangirl selves. Screaming our heads off while having beers.

          I vowed to avoid Twitter. I set up an account back in 2009, but never used it until last week. There are lots of upsides to Twitter, like being notified of new fanfics involving Rob, hotel rooms, and drunk phone sex. And lots of downsides, like being notified of new fanfics involving Rob, hotel rooms, and drunk phone sex.

          Plus you can tweet CW if you join. I mean, if that is not incentive enough, I don’t know what is.

            Since disqus is being weird, I am replying to everyone in one comment. Sorry:

            1. are you guys insane? I love Twitter so hard! It’s CrazyTown! Mardi Gras every day!

            2. “Team Tyler’s Van” HA!

            3. My very old, non-silvery-white Volvo has 2 pieces of flair: a MoveOn Obama/Biden sticker, and a little white sticker with a cloud raining little black hearts over the word “Forks”. Subtle, but enough to attract “Dear Disturbingly Messy Car Interior Bella” notes.

          • http://twitter.com/pineylonesome natteringyeahrobber

            Re #1. I like reading stuff on Twitter, but posting stuff, another story. Anytime I post something I immediately feel like deleting it. I think I’ve deleted half of everything I’ve posted thus far. Is that normal?

          • Anonymous

            why do you want to delete it? is it because you are tweeting obscenities to CW and Jacksper? If so, I think you should not delete them, I think they like it secretly.

          • http://twitter.com/pineylonesome natteringyeahrobber

            I don’t like anything I post there. I have serious writer’s block when it comes to Twitter too. The blinking cursor syndrome. Anytime I get on Twitter, I start to feel like Jack Nicholson in The Shining…All_work_and_no_play_makes_Jack_a_dull_boy. Twitter makes me neurotic.

          • ladyofthemeadow

            Love that movie. Many fond memories of hiding in my date’s shoulder (Scary Jack Nicholson = great excuse to snuggle up). Imagine if Jack was cast into Twilight. He’d make a mean vamp.

            When I read “tweet CW” at first I thought you meant the network. Then I thought, “I wonder if she tweets them about One Tree Hill and 90210?”” Then I realized that you meant Chris Weitz. Remember how I mentioned my lameness above? Yup, did it again. (I might as well mention, I might have been tempted to tweet Vampire Diaries to the CW (network), Not Chris Weitz. Lameness total for Stacey today = 3)

    I’m very sad to read that Santa has run out of Edward Cullens….

    these are realy funny!

  • MariaCecilia

    Now I might get Facebook just to be able to flaunt some flair – LOL! No, seriously, I’m more into the flair I can actually use, and feel smug but not too obvious in, like Edward’s pea coat, or Bella’s flannel shirt and skinny jeans. (OK, so the Bella bracelet and the wedding ring are kind of obvious, but I only wear them around the house!)
    I still think I will look into the idea of making an LTR pin we could all use as a secret sign: a tiny dumpster.

    • drsaka

      let’s do it!

    • http://twitter.com/pineylonesome natteringyeahrobber

      Agreed. And I would just die if I ran into anyone else wearing it. There is this one woman I see every afternoon as I’m walking to my bus. She has bright purple hair and I have always assumed it is because she’s a LTT person. I’ve never had the courage to ask her (because it would be awkward if the answer was “wtf, no”). But if she had purple hair AND sported a pin of a tiny dumpster, I would know for sure.

      I do walk around town wearing Bella’s handbag (Twilight and NM). But sadly no one has ever called me out.

            She wasn’t around today. Maybe she read our comments and was terrified of being accosted by some crazy Twilight fan. Took another route to the bus. At home dying her hair back to brown. I can’t blame her. That, or she is out looking for an open tote to make herself more accessible to creepy letter-writing Edward.

      Tiny dumpster….explain please

      • MariaCecilia

        Once upon a time, before I joined LTT/LTR, there was some speculation in a post whether or not Rob would have had, had or had not had sex with someone (no names) behind a dumpster. Which is why I want to have a t-shirt made: Front “Meet me behind the dumpster”. Back: “That’s normal.” :-)

          Also, there is a pap pic of Rob, where he is in a brown long coat, beanie also I think, talking on a cell phone in an alley by a dumpster. (I think that picture exists, maybe I made it up though too much ff LOL). Thought maybe that pic is where the dumpster refs started????
          This post prob won’t even get read so much after the fact, hopefully someone will be able to confirm or deny. Sick kiddos at my house=brain not functioning on no sleep

    The only Twilight flair I have is anti-Twilight flair, obviously. So, here’s those and a couple others:

    I don’t have any Facebook flair… but this reminds me,
    I think my FB quote is,”…Meanwhile, in a little town called Spoons.”
    I need to update.

  • Anonymous

    I have a few, but this is my favorite. My brother went out of his way to collect anti-Twilight flair, such as the “Team Tyler’s Van” button.

      It’s the gospel truth. I thought I was going to defriend her for watching it.

  • Anonymous

    I know there were several I enjoyed for one reason or another, but the only one I can remember at the moment is one with Emmett/Edward (or Kellan/Rob, however you choose to look at it) and on the photo/flair said, “Yes, please.”

  • Anonymous

    I thought he looked good in Eclipse except for the times he looked like maybe he had tuberculosis.

    I turned to my friend during Remember Me and said, “Is this movie just about how much better looking Robert Pattinson gets in each successive scene?” and exactly then the next scene was him in a tight white t-shirt and I had my answer. Then I started licking my television.

    WFE was certainly gasp out loud hot, and I am not certain everyone will survive Suit!Rob in Cosmopolis. He gets to have sex, finally, the poor thing, and lots of it.

    I think nobody really knows if he is a good actor or not because it is very hard to concentrate on things like that with all that hotness in the way. I was halfway through Little Ashes before I realized I actually liked the movie, and all those art history classes started filtering through the sex.brain.haze. And then RADIATOR and all was lost.

    This is probably why they make me work from home. “MNS! You are too sexy! We can’t get any work done! Go home!”

    • JustGoWithIt

      I am completely unable to critique Rob’s acting abilities, other than his American accent. Which is passable as not British, but doesn’t sound particularly American. It worked in Twi, because he is also a 100 year old vampire. Accents out the window.
      Yey suit Rob!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • TeamSeth

      Well, some of us aren’t distracted.

      He’s an okay actor. I liked him as Cedric. But, I think I just prefer him with his proper voice, it makes his face look more normal when he speaks in his proper voice. Less like he ate a lemon (snort laugh at unintended FF joke).

      That said, no I’ve not seen Water for Elephants yet. It’s not my style of film. I may see it though, on video or in the $3 theater. But I’m hoping Nat will write me a $3 Bella note, because I would find that less creepy than a Mid-Saturday Afternoon Target Run Bella note. Given how closed up my purse is. She’d have to do a boob graze to get it in there mid-Saturday.

      • Anonymous

        Yeah, I would not have seen WFE if it wasn’t for RP (and at least one other obsessed fan to go with. I prefer not to drink or squee alone.) Not my thing, really, but I enjoyed it. It’s not as Romance-y, Nicholas-Sparks-Trash as it looks.

        I know what you mean, though. Is it so hard to find roles that have men who speak with British accents? I find that hard to believe.

        Lemon. Ha.

          pretzel with the cheese inside them? I’ll watch it with you. Wait are you in Vancouver?! Because then I could have some Granville Island beer, which is phenomenally delicious. I can see customs now…

          “And what’s the purpose of your trip, miss, eh?”
          “I’m, uh, visiting a friend for… something.”
          “For something? How do you know this ‘friend’? Wait, is that an “I Drive Like a Cullen” sticker on your car? You do realize that all the BD sets are closed sets and you will be prosecuted under Canadian law should you trespass.”
          “Um, you do realize you just called it BD, right? And they’re done filming. Besides I’m just going to have beer, cheese and pretzels, in whichever order you choose. And yes, I’m over 19. Don’t mess with me, sweetheart, I’m going to watch WTF and you can just shove it with your financial incentives for film crews and not allowing non-Canadian citizens to be extras.”
          “You’re going to watch WTF? Isn’t that the Miley Cyrus film?”
          LOL! No!!!”
          “Phew. Well, in that case, carry on, eh.”

        It’s true. It’s just me and Robert Pattinson, sitting on the couch. No one wants us around because we are too sexy.
        “What are we going to do now?” he says.

        “I don’t know. I guess we could make out again.” I say.

        “Hmm. Sure. You want me to grunt a bunch like last time?”

        “Yeah. Hey but this time can the Cougar not watch from the shadows?”

        “Sorry, she’s got a contract. I can’t get out of it until I turn 30.”

        “Fine. But I’m not wearing the flannel.”

  • JustGoWithIt

    I remember NKOTB flair, of which I did not partake, but remember thinking those extra giant ones would be good for a Halloween costume.
    I’ve always been a like things in semi-secret kind of gal, so advertising with flair wasn’t my thing as a teenager. The only pin I ever wore was one that said I <3 PEE. It originally said I <3 PEI (as in Prince Edward Island), but I used a permanent marker to make it PEE because I thought it was funny. So yes, my flair told everyone I enjoy PEE. I wasn't opposed to attention, I just enjoyed the random variety. A good friend of mine at the time had a pin on her backpack that said "Only Users Lose Drugs". I thought it was bold to advertise that she was into getting high on her backpack, but looking back what about us didn't advertise that we liked getting high?

    I owe everything to flair. I was new to facebook (summer 2008) and my cousin posted the very first flair I ever saw: “Edward Cullen has made it hard for me to have a real boyfriend” or something like that and I asked the question “Who the eff is Edward Cullen?” And that as they say was that.

    • sonata

      Me, too. I read twilight so that I could figure out all of the flair references. Best day of my life. I remember everything about that day…walking into Walmart….seeing the shelf of books…having NO CLUE they were about vampires…picking up the book casually and tossing it into my cart (how dare I treat it so!), wondering if I was wasting $7….coming home, unloading groceries, getting my girls started on homework…making dinner…hubby calling because he was going to be working late…thinking to myself “Well, I guess I can start that new book…curling up in bed with new book…hubby coming home two hours later to a wild-eyed, foaming-at-the-mouth psycho in his bed who yelled at him to stop walking so loudly becuase it was too distracting….slamming the book shut and sitting up in bed at 1 am saying, “I NEED THE NEXT ONE…NOW!”….aruging with hubby as to why I can’t drive to walmart at one am….spending the next hour trying to decide between sneeking out or storming out…the next day, dropping my kids off at school and SPEEDING to walmart…going home…curling up with New Moon…throwing said book against the wall, screaming and crying….

      Yup…good times. Thanks, Facebook Flair!
