I promised myself that this blog would NOT be about Rob… all the time. But here he is again in another post.
As you may or may not know, I am a BIG, HUGE, GINORMOUS Robert Pattinson fan. So, you can imagine how ecstatic I was when it was confirmed that he’d be working with David Cronenberg on Cosmopolis here in Toronto. I think I actually jumped up from my lying position in bed, and scared the living crap out of my husband when I heard the news.
Since then I’ve been to the “set” a total of 5 times. I have had the pleasure of feasting my eyes on that beautiful man each of those times. My husband hasn’t been too amused about it but he’s managed to come to grips with the situation. The other day, someone asked me if I’m tapping into my inner teenager. At first I was a bit offended but then I started thinking about that question. Have I been getting in touch with my inner teenager? So, as usual I started to make lists in my head to either support or deny this.
Firstly, I have never done this before… OK! I lied! I did this once, way back in the day. When I was in high school and Duran Duran were in town (Shhhh… we won’t say anything about what age bracket that puts me in). Off we went to the Sheraton Hotel downtown looking for them. Not long after getting there, we got escorted out by security. We kind of stood out like sore thumbs…in our school uniforms and all. Clearly we sucked at it because they were at the Four Seasons Hotel. FYI: I cannot imagine myself doing this ever again for anyone else.
Secondly, I may never get the chance to see Rob, in the flesh, again. So I HAVE to take this opportunity. Right? God only knows if he’ll ever come back to do another movie in Toronto.
Thirdly, going to the set to see Rob is a natural progression in my Robsession. I’ve been
perving obsessing over the Boy since November 2008. I mean, I have a Cardboard Eddie in my Family Room!!! And just for the record, my husband is actually OK with him there. Yes, it can be quite tedious standing around for hours waiting for the Boy to come in and out of his trailer. But damn, was it worth it! Standing next to him while he signed my magazine was the biggest trip for me. I was completely in awe.
Lastly, I have met the most amazing group of “girls” EVER thanks to this whole thing. Fellow fans who know exactly how I feel, that are on the same page as me when it comes to Rob. It’s so much more fun to squeeee with friends.
So, again I ask myself: Am I tapping my inner teenageR? And the answer is: I think I might be. Somewhere inside me there’s a seventeen year old that is “amped” at being let out.
