Yep, I missed it. I clear forgot my bloggiversary...or whatever you want to call it. I've been getting Tongue-Twied over Rob and Twilight for a few years now!!! And let's face it, Rob gets a little tongue-twied over me too, like that time he told an interviewer about how I invited him to meet me at a quaint little book shop....
He told the interviewer:
"except that I really wanted to meet kiTT, so I went."
I remember the day like it was yesterday when I looked at my husband and strongly declared, "Guess what? I'm going to start a Twilight blog." I had no idea what had come over me. I didn't know anything about blogs and was green to how big the fandom was beyond those that were Twitarded and those that were dedicated to Rob (Robmusement). I didn't even know about Robsessed!
I was a bit disillusioned..on lots of levels. I thought all the passion I had for Twilight and Rob plus my sense of humor would land me a coveted spot on Twitarded's blogroll. Just checked and still not there! Meh....I'm not everybody's brand of heroin.
But getting back to this journey that I started on a couple of years ago...the good news is just how many wonderful people I found and who found me because I decided to branch out from being a blog lurker, occasional commenter, and closet fanfiction reader to having my own blog. It was such a decision that I bet Alice saw me coming.
I look around at the people who were part of this blog in the very early days and continue to still be here and those that are around a bit less now as well as those that joined in a bit later and stayed on with me. Luv you all, and I'm so thankful! I know there are a few longstanding jokes from the early days that live on with a few of you that I don't hear from much but then there are new laughs all the time with some of you that I talk with on a weekly, if not daily, basis.
So dear followers and friends...Thanks for being you. Thanks for sticking around. Thanks for coming back. Thanks for adding me to your blogrolls. Thanks for giving me just as much opportunity to laugh as I may or may not have given you. Thanks for loving Twilight. Thanks for keeping it fun!
F*ck it, I'm just gonna say that I'm really happy with my posts and to now say I have written a Fanfiction story that is getting recc'd over at the Lemonade Stand this week. #proudwriter (thanks to Jeanette for giving me the heads up on that!)
You guys give me everything I didn't know I needed just by eating, sleeping, and breathing Twilight and Rob right along with me!
Happy Bloggy Birthday to theTongueTwied blog!
Early on I had written a post declaring that I had the right to change my mind. You can read it here. Who remembers that? It thought it would be fun to take a look and see what, if anything, I have changed my mind on. I've added my current feelings in PURPLE or THIS COLOR!!!
YES!! Still all about Team Edward, Tyler, Robowski, Georges, Eric Packer, Art, FuglyRainbowSweater geeky Daniel, stealing kisses at the Summer house boy, Dali male loving, Professor in my favorite Fanfiction, sneak away and see him without anyone to the wiser ....ROB!!!!So here are some things I could possibly change my mind about...1. I'm all about Rob. I'm Team Edward. I'm Team Bedward. I'm Team Tyler.2. Kellan--AnnaLynn McCord or Jelena can have him.3. Jackson --Thank Goodness he was not Edward! Elusive S can drag him to her elusive padded room all to herself.4. Peter--I've always thought he was cute. I even used to watch him in that show he did with Tiffany Amber Thiessen and Bill Bellamy. But the blonde hair is a no-go for this gal!5. Taylor--He's too young! He's cute as anything but his soft demeanor needs to grow into those new abs of his.6. Robsten.But I'm fickle as a pickle, so having said all that...
Let's say one day I'm fed up with Edward and decide I'm Team Jacob. Okay bad example, that shit's never gonna happen! LOL!
Yes, I changed my mind on Kellan! #takeitoffKellan We WILL be seeing some sparkly pecs in Breaking Dawn Two. I really do wish there had been more to Emmett in BD 1, but I think BD 2 is going to be his day to sparkle in the sun!!Let's try this instead...
I love funny Emmett. The Emmett sense of humor is something I am really looking forward to in Breaking Dawn. So if MR leaves in all those funny lines and Kellan delivers them perfectly like the New Moon line "Dating an older woman...Hot! What?" I just might come out of that theater declaring I freakin' love Kellan Lutz. Or I might find him sexy as hell in Captain America. I reserve the right to change my mind.
Yes, I changed my mind on Jackson!!! Two 100 Monkeys show and losing all sense of who the hell I was when I met him and Mohawtie? Yep!
And let's just say tomorrow I finally see Jackson Rathbone in a new light and I get a case of what Elusive S calls Jacksonitis. Yeah I've been going through their old posts studying up. Holy shit!!! Is that what MOS means? So if it happens, yeah, I reserve the right to change my mind.
YES!!! I just watched his movie 'Loosies' this weekend and really enjoyed seeing him in his natural brown hair and underwear and in a suit! I'm so saddened about his pending divorce but I'm so glad I got to meet him!!! Yep, I changed my mind!!!
Peter--I adore pictures I see of you and Jennie. I'm glad you are Carlisle. Apparently Freddie Prinze Jr was in line before you but then someone remembered how bad he looked as a blonde in Scooby Doo. Guess what? I don't like you as a blonde either. But if I'm all smitten with you doing fight scenes in Eclipse and I leave the theater with all new appreciation for you and your blonde protectivey daddy moves, then yeah I reserve the right to change my mind.
Bottom line, Taylor played a high school boy in this sooooooo, my conditions were not met.
Taylor--Give me 5 years. Too long? Then 3? I'm so stubborn over this. Okay I have one condition. Play someone OTHER than Jacob Black or a high school boy and maybe I will think differently about you. I don't think you as Stretch Armstrong is gonna do it for me either, but if that is the case, then yeah I reserve the right to change my mind.
Robsten---Here's how I like my Robsten best...Hidden! First off let me say that I have known about the possibility of Robsten before I knew about any Twilight blog or before "RPattz" was spoken from my lips on a daily basis. Ya know how? There are 2 spots in Twilight that are pure Rob and Kristen on screen out of character but together.
Well these two certainly have been out and about together a bit more lately, haven't they? I still kind of like my Robsten hidden, but if they aren't going to be hidden, let me say how I like my Robsten best. Showered and dressed casually ala their appearance on the Oprah show. (Don't misunderstand, that's not how I like my Rob best, just the Robsten)

In lieu of gifts of cash or any prizes (short of a private Rob Meet-n-Greet) I hope you'll celebrate with me by leaving in the comments the answers to the following questions just
to stroke my ego so we can all revisit the same parts of Memory Lane together.
Just say the FIRST thing that comes to mind.
