It’s President’s Day!

Mount Robmore

Dear Rob,

It’s been awhile since we last taught you about an American holiday. I was reminded at how fun it was after trading tweets with Zees this week I remembered all her amazing letters explaining the Jewish holidays to you. SOOOO guess what… today is another special day in the states we like to call President’s Day! Yes, it’s another day (most) of us get off from work to lazy around or hit up the sales or stay out late the night before. In my case I went to San Francisco, the drove back to LA and just got in from a night cutting a rug at our favorite local place. We gotta celebrate staying out late on a Sunday when we can.

So what’s this holiday about you ask… though President’s day is celebrated on or around George Washington’s (our very first President) birthday it’s actually close to many other presidential birthdays (most notably Abraham Lincoln’s) and is really more of a celebration of the office of the Presidency.

It’s a federal holiday which means all government offices, post offices and banks are closed. So since we can’t open checking accounts or get new driver’s licenses we head to the shops or the car dealers for their big sales. Mostly to help jump start spending after the Christmas holidays these sales just co-opt our government’s highest position for a couple extra bucks and sales on toasters and Corolla’s.

As you know, most of our holidays revolve about food, namely barbeque’s in the summer where we can eat tons of hot dogs and light stuff on fire! President’s Day is not that kind of holiday, there are no fireworks and no bbq-ed meat products but we love it just the same because it means we get a day off and that means more time to devote to stuff like making manips like Mount Robmore up there. Cause who doesn’t wish that South Dakota actually had a huge stone monument with Rob faces carved into it instead of the influential Presidents that Mount Rushmore now pays tribute to. Forget pilgrimages to Forks, we’d all be running to Keystone, South Dakota to drink a heini and gaze on it’s wonder and beauty.

So Rob just another American Holiday minus the food. Now off to get a new phone and see if there’s anything good on sale…

Who wants to see Mount Rushmore blasted and a new Mount Robmore in it’s place? Any plans for President’s Day for those in the states?

    Pretty great double entendre, Moon, in the name of the potential new tourist attraction in South Dakota!


    Happy Birthday, Mel!

    Happy President’s Day to all of you girls in the US!

    Honestly I would not mind to see Rob even in the Oval office one day…hmmm…yes…he is absolutely capable of saving the world…at least the female part of it 🙂

    For the time being I will be satisfied with your new Mount Robmore! Definitely worth a trip to Americaaaa!!!

  6. Vera says:

    I got no internet connection the whole weekend.

    I just read the comments about Rob and babies. I think you all are crazy. The association Rob-babies gets my ovaries go off like an alarm-bell.

    I want Rob to me my baby and I do want to have his baby, four or five of them, actually.

    He is almost twenty five yo, too young for sure, but it is the experience what changes time and life.

    Ladies in US, enjoy the day off. Next week it will be our turn. Carnaval is coming on saturday and it will last until one minute past 12 p.m. on wednesday. Aaaafffff!!!

    Dear Rob,
    This is one holiday that the preschool actually gets off! So what was I thinking about doing you ask? I thought it might be a good day to drive around LA, you know, see the sights. Thinking about lunch at In-n-Out and mabye a trip to a rare guitar store someone once told me about. Just a Normal day! Odds are we might bump into each other (not really likely) so all I need his a hand squeeze (it felt so nice in my dream the other day).

    See you soon,
    your mate
    (i almost signed my real name, that was weird)

    • robsfuturemate says:

      Ok ladies, there are 7 In-n-Out locations in LA. I’m guessing he’s more of a Cahuenga then a Sunset kinda guy. Anybody have suggestions? I’m throwing Glendale, Inglewood and Alhambra off the list but what do I know!

  8. MariaCecilia says:

    I love a holiday – pity we don’t get a holiday on the King’s birthday over here, all work and no play!
    Please let there be tours to climb President Rob’s face on Mount Robmore! I would love to get my hands on those cheekbones..
    Oh, and did you note how the different versions of Rob have bushier and not-so-bushy eyebrows. Manscaped or no? (Why do I see these things…is this normal?)

    • natteringyeahrobber says:

      Can you imagine all the awesome photo opps if we were allowed to climb Mount Robmore? “Here’s me in his left nostril…and me again in his right nostril….here I am acting like bothered head lice in his hair…and here I am lounging on his lower lip, pouring a Heineken into his mouth.”

      • MariaCecilia says:

        Oooo, you’re cracking me up! Can I have a slumber party on his bottom lip, pretty please? *wink*

        • natteringyeahrobber says:

          Lip parties will be starting 2012, but only to card-carrying LTRs. Other women/unicorns/men get his ear canal.

      • The Old One says:

        I think there should be one giant sculpted Rob head based on that photo of him licking Anna Kendrick’s face. Image the photo ops! Imagine the middle-aged ladies suddenly taking rope climbing lessons! I’m ready to start my membership at Mission Cliffs right now.

        • natteringyeahrobber says:

          I’ve never been much for dangling off the sides of treacherous cliffs, but dangling off a cliff for a piece Rob tongue…that I’d take lessons for.

  9. Brenn says:

    Rob on Mt. Rushmore is a GREAT idea. But dontcha think he should be an American citizen first?

    Dear Rob —

    Marry Me. That will make you an American citizen. We won’t even be investigated by Immigration–I will be so over the moon in love with you it will be obvious why we married. We’ll work on the Mt. Rushmore thing later, along with kicking Andrew Jackson off the $20 dollar bill so your sweet face can grace the money supply.

    Happy Birthday Mel!!

  11. JellyBeanRainbow says:

    Leave Mount Rushmore be, but build Mount Robmore in every single country of the world, and two in Greece 😉
    Happy B-day @melronin !

    • melronin says:

      So so so sweet!! Thank you lovely!
      am so touched <3

    • melronin says:

      PS. TWO MOUNT ROBMORE in Greece???
      omg….I just died…oh yeaaaahhhh 😀

      • natteringyeahrobber says:

        Sorta makes sense since Rob does resemble Adonis, maybe Dionysus too. Greece had better prepare for a surge in female/maenad tourism once RobMoreMoreMore (one more is not enough) is erected.

        Happy Birthday melronin! Smooches, honey & wine from me!

        • robsfuturemate says:

          hehe! You said ‘erected’!!

          • natteringyeahrobber says:

            Yah, I figured there would be more female mountain-carving volunteers to help with the “Erection of RobMore” than “Construction of RobMore.”

        • melronin says:

          Rob must do something for the greek economy!
          He must def be erected (omggg) on Mount Olympus…he surely is one of the gods!! Tourism would go up…

          Rob…come do some charity for Greece baby!
          Nothing would help more than your pretty face on top of my mountain… would also see you from my window night and day!!!

          Thank you for the bd wishes honi! Come have some greek wine with me 🙂 hugs & kisses…

          • maggie says:

            The erection of Mount RobMore. Hmmm… If you twist those words around like your trying to solve a word puzzle, you might come up with something like, oh I don’t know, Mount the erection of ………!! (Oops! So sorry. I’m just feeling presidentially pervy today, I guess. 🙂

            Happy birthday, Mel.

            rfm: missed you yesterday whilst I was combing the valley in the WFT-LTR-Mobile trolling for Rob re Nat’s suggestion. (see my last post on the previous topic). Did you meet Renesme’s mother’s friend?

          • robsfuturemate says:

            Mags- I just read your last post’s comment and was lit’rally LMAO!! Yes, I met her but played it cool. ie, didn’t mention her friend’s daughter’s vampire movie daddy. It was probably a mistake on my part but you know, wanted to stay friend’s with the bride! I was hoping you’d tell me which In-n-Out to go today, we could have met for lunch and then combed the city again. Next time!

          • natteringyeahrobber says:

            maggie – LMAO at your “herrre’s johnny” & “brown eyed girl” siren call. if that, plus the intoxicating scent of chicken tikka and hot pockets could not reel him in, i don’t know what could. he must have already boarded the flight to vancouver – there’s no way in hell he could have resisted the combo of all of the above. oreos and popcorn ain’t got nothing on maggie cold cruisin’ in the bedazzled come-hither scented WTF-LTR-mobile.

          • melronin says:

            Thank you for the bdwishes honi!
            Hugs and kisses…

    In honor of Presidents Day, I’m going to sit in bed all day and dream of Rob being the president in my oval office. My hair is on it’s 5th day not being washed. Your hair begins to wash itself after about 6 weeks, right?

    • natteringyeahrobber says:

      I get it. You are not washing your hair as a form of protest, until Rob posts here? Instead of a sit-in, you are staging a dirty-hair-in. Genius.

      I’ll join you, at least this morning. I have bangs and T-zone combination skin so after 12 hours, my hair starts sticking to my oily forehead. I become highly irritable at that point and hair washing becomes the sole thought, the single priority. I cannot just put a hat on,because the hat squishes my bangs into my eyes and I cannot see. But, I’ll join you in your hair-in until about 4 p.m. Pacific time (or until Rob posts here, whatever happens first).

      • sallycinnamon says:

        Uh, yeah…yeah, that’s the reason…
        I don’t normally go lengthy periods of time without washing my hair….

        I have uncontrollable hair. I haven’t brushed it in years.

    • MariaCecilia says:

      I am sitting right with you girl, unwashed bangs and all!
      (humming “we shall not be moved, we shall not be moved, we shall not be moved today..but oh oh, deep in my heart, I do believe that Rob shall move us two some day..”)

      • natteringyeahrobber says:

        Well, this dirty-hair-in has proved to be a failure. I have a bottle of System Biolage with my name on it. Even my messy 3 year old told me it was time to shower.

        Maybe tomorrow, MC. Maybe he’ll post tomorrow. Keep the faith.

        • robsfuturemate says:

          Nat- wanted to apologize for leaving you in the lurch for your chicken tikka dinner last night. It was my mom’s bday dinner and figured she would only understand me missing it IF I was having dinner with a certain Celeb crush. And since you couldn’t guarantee that, I thought I should hang with my mom! Thanks for the sweet offer!

          • natteringyeahrobber says:

            Yah, Rob was a no-show. Again. It’s OK, I ended up not making chicken tikka anyhow. The salmon at the market was so fresh and asparagus is finally looking good. I’ll cook up another batch of Tikka next time Rob is in CA, though, and we’ll try again. I need to perfect my naan anyhow.

  13. Mieze says:

    Important things first: Happy Birthday, Mel! I hope you´ll have some great time today! Alles, alles Liebe!

    Someone said something about Rob for Prime Minister above and I was immediately thinking about Hugh Grants dancing scene in “Love actually”and tried to imagine Rob doing it LOL
    He´s would be such a goof…:-)

    To all the American Ladies: Happy Presitdent day 🙂

  14. che says:

    It’s Normal to take hits of second hand smoke whilst walking by a group of smokers “just to get use to it”, right?

  17. robsfuturemate says:

    Next time I’ll pick Rob up on my way that way he’ll be sure to be there! Your in No. Cal, right? It’ll be a nice little roadtrip for us maybe we’ll let TomStu tag along!

    • natteringyeahrobber says:

      All are welcome. Even if Rob can’t make it, TomStu is still welcome. I’ve got quite a few questions for him anyhow, and after a good meal and a few drinks, I’m guessing the info will flow.
