Stuff my Grandma says about Rob Pattinson
Last night I had a dinner date with my 73 year old grandmother. Then she took me to Kohls to buy me lots of gifts. [Sidenote: Moon & I discussed how all grandmom’s really love Kohls. I think it’s all the coupons. And the Sr. Citizen discount. But then I saved $110 at Kohls last night on some really cute things & decided I must be a grandmom. I love Kohls too.] But during dinner she slid something across the table towards me, and when I turned it over, much to my surprise (because I really really really thought I hid my obsession well) it was Rob & Reese’s photo
from their recent cruise to Paradise from EW. My Grandmother said:
UC’s Grandmom: Did you see this?
[UC’s thoughts]: Duh! And omg omg omg.. does she know about LTR? And the things I’ve SAID on LTR?
UC’s Grandmom: It’s that fella you like. I don’t know what you see in him! He’s so ugly!!
[UC’s thoughts]: I knew she was going crazy!
UC’s Grandmom: His face is weird. Now SHE is beaitiful!!
[UC’s thoughts]: Grandma’s a Reecbian!
It cracked me up & got me thinking, is my grandma alone? Is she the only grandma out there who doesn’t find “that fella” smokin’ hot? Do you, Rob, not attract woman over a certain age or lifestyle? Once retirement hits & the bus trips with the ladies at the YMCA are bi-monthly affairs, do you have to close the book on Robsessing?
I did a lot of research (read: googled it once) about “Grandmom’s and Rob Pattinson” and what I found was… well, a couple posts on LTR, actually. Now, of course, the term “Grandmom” is relative… Grandmom’s can be YOUNG. Grandmom’s can be OLD. Grandmom’s can in between those two numbers. I KNOW we have readers who have grandkids. I KNOW we’ve gotten letters from women who are grandmothers (although I can only remember ONCE anyone fessing up to being over 70)
A post from the Answer Bitch on E! online last year popped up in my research. The question was:
I live in Maryland, but I would like to meet Mr. Robert Pattinson, shake his hand, and invite him out to dinner or drinks. I’m a 51-year-old grandmother, not a crazed teenager. I’d simply like to get to know a little about him on a one-on-one basis. What would be the best way to attempt this?
The answer to the question was what you could expect from someone called the Answer Bitch. It was bitchy & snarky &, well, true. That’s a crazytimes question. You have no interest in sitting down with a grandma, a hot cougar OR a crazed teenager for “dinner or drinks.” If you were, you think I’d be sitting on my bed, cat on my lap, New Moon T-shirt on my body (True) in Philadelphia? No way jose… I’d be all up your business in Vancouver, case of Heineken in hand, reservations to every restaurant in Vancouver booked, just so I make sure we get in at your favorite (Because apparently in this fantasy in my mind, Rob Pattinson has to make reservations and can’t just walk into any restaurant in the world)
The comments on this “Grandmother” post are lively… I posted the best, followed by my thoughts after the jump!
Ok! I’m 52 and yes I have the Hots for Rpatz, but who in there wildest dream would ever think they could say! Hey Mr Pattinson would u like to have dinner and drinks sometime? ha ha ha E is right stay in your hometown and dream baby, there’s nothing wrong in have a great dream!
Amen- Come on over to LTR !!
What if the grandma was Raquel Welch? Ivana Trump? Susan Sarandon? Jackyn Smith? Bo Derek? or any ageless woman in her 50’s or older? Would that make a difference?
Hmmm…. would it? Rob likes boobs & Bo’s got boobs…Maybe you’re on to something!
If you like Rob, pray for him. Ond others to. That is the best we can do for them. I do pray for Rob to keep him stgong mentaly, AND FREE OF ADDICTION. I pray for Kristen to keep her strong emotinaly and give her cougage to face the world.Peace..
I pray for Kristen to have “cougage” too
I’m also a 51-year-old grandmother from Maryland. Maybe all the “creepy” Maryland grandmothers should unite and extend a group invitation to Mr. Pattinson.
Hilarious. I mean, that is if you’re joking. I hope you’re joking. You should be joking..
Ouch. since when are people so harsh to the elderly? I’m only 16, but I know I’m not that close-minded to shoot down a simple question no matter how unlikely it may be…
HAHA “ELDERLY” Oh I love the ignorance of 16 year olds…
Hmmm….maybe you youngsters protest so much because you actually feel threatened by what a mature woman could offer Mr. Pattinson that you cannot, such as wisdom, experience, intelligent conversation, and (gasp) maturity. Much better than babbling, giggling, and air-headed observations. Many men prefer older women for those very reasons. We’re much more interesting than little girls.
I think I’m still gonna go with “anyone who thinks Rob wants to have a conversation with anyone other than people who are already friends, friends of friends or have been screened & approved by his “team” is delusional.” But I agree. The closer I get to 30 the more “mature” I feel. And also more depressed. Damn you late 20s.
Oh- if you’re wondering if I bought everything in the LC Conrad line at Kohls, of course I did. Thanks Grandmom!
What do you think? Is their an “age” limit to Robsessing? Anyone want to fess up to their age in the comments? Anyone out there a great-grandma? Cuz then I think you might have an actual chance at meeting Rob..Does anyone else have a story about something their grandma said about Rob!? Who else loves Kohls! 30% off RULES!
