is your man "disturbed" by your robsession?

i woke up to an email from my husband that said this:

"I think he’s a pretty good looking guy – if you get past that distinctive inbred look. When I used to do film shoots in Cabbagetown I’d see them (the “Cabbage heads”, products of inbreeding from the old mill town) with their eyes all far apart and flattened out facial features – all semi retarded...



I Googled ‘inbred look’ and his brother was the first return:"


so...are any of you having similar emails? i know alison from MLHP is. her husband made her listen to a scathing review of new moon.

I can't even discuss New Moon or anything Twilight related with the BF. He says its redic that I am trying to be a teenager and I'm too old for this shit. I REALLY think he is jealous that I would leave him in a split second to be with Edward Cullen, or Rob...I'll take either.

I have a crazy thing for Charlie Hunnam from Sons of Anarchy. The hub is cool with it as it's one of his favorite shows, so we both get something out of it. Ah ha ha

McDreamy gets a little pinched whenever the name Johnny Depp comes up - has been since age of 12and will remain my throb.

I look the other way over his fascination for Brazilian girls! ha!

i get the "grow up" comments (not about RP...personally, he's not my cup of tea)....but i guess it's the same thing when women roll their eyes at the SO's fascination with supermodels or "specially" endowed women....enjoy what you like...life's too short

That's funny! I can send you one of these if you want:

That should get a rise out of your husband :) You can threaten to hang it on your bedroom wall!

I printed a picture of Robby P. laying in a bed with that "come hither" stare...and pasted it on the side of my nightstand so when I wake up in the morning, he is the first thing I see...my husband wasn't especially fond of this. LOL. I figure I'll print him a pic of Jessica Alba and we'll be even. I don't mind looking at her either....lol.

I have a funny little story. Ever since the Rob hype started, he always reminded me of one of my deepest crushes of my life. It was 5th grade, his name was Kyle and he was a bad boy (which was actually pretty bad for 5th grade). But boy was he sexy (again, for 5th grade). I actually was curious, and I myspace-d him. 20 years later, he does in deed look very much like Rob. I wrote him, even though I'm a happily married woman, and said "We haven't talked since 5th grade, but does anyone ever tell you you look like the guy from Twilight?" He had no idea who I was talking about.. and I was too embarrassed to ever write back.

I bet he knows who I was talking about now! ha

YOUR husband and MY husband should just go get Twi-sloshed while we get our RPatz fix on!

P.S. - I HAVE heard that "Lua Nova" does a pretty good job of making you pant for Team Jacob. Can't wait!

My guy is Johnny Depp, and my hubby actually gave me an autographed 8x10 of him for Xmas a couple of years ago. Johnny sat in my reading corner for a while, but he missed me terribly during the day, so I took him to work with me.

Oh, and Josh from Destination Truth is a cutie patootie, and hubby loves the show. Win-win. :)

I'm not really into this twilight stuff or rob... But I LOVE Tim Riggins from Friday Night Lights, he's just hotter than anything else walking around these days... So I have started getting some comments on him... So definitely know what you're going through ;)

I told my husband he looked like a bald Robert Pattinson. He bought it and, in a showing of his own vanity, started buying all magazines with RPatz on the cover. That I then read. Clearly, it all worked to my advantage.

I should note that I love my husband, he is fantastic...but vanity sometimes knows no bounds. hee hee.
