Ladies and gentleman, today is a very important day. Today is the birthday of my dear friend Buttons!! Buttons is not her real name, of course. Every time I try to text her name the autotype function on my cell phone decides that I’m trying to talk sewing instead, hence a nickname was born. I don’t really use this nickname much, but since this blog is all about anonymity, we’re going to use it today.
Let me tell you a little bit about my friend Buttons. I have known Buttons for almost 15 years and she is the nicest, most caring, compassionate girl on the planet. She is beautiful, hilarious, fun, affectionate, dedicated, hard-working, incredibly intelligent and an amazing listener. One of the things I enjoy the most about Buttons is that she is the least judgmental person I know. I can tell her anything, no matter how nerdy, gross, embarrassing, whatever and I know that she will never turn her back on me, will always be my best friend, and will probably even love me more for whatever I tell her. My other favorite part about Buttons is her ability to obsess over something. I love this because she’s exactly the same as me. A lot of you may be the same way as well. Once we get started on something, there’s no stopping us. Through the years we’ve gone through all sorts of obsessions, from Green Day to NSync to Russell Crowe to Harry Potter and now Twilight. Sharing these obsessions with her is the BEST and she is the reason I started this blog. I still remember the day she told me over the phone that she had finally read Twilight and loved it. It was so exciting to know that she was going to be with me on this. Since then we’ve had an email Midnight Sun Book Club, smoked cigarettes (my first) while listening to Johnny Flynn (hoping that Rob would walk by at that very moment, being within 100 miles of Vancouver at the time), created our own unconventional “teams” (Team Six Pack, Team Green Sweater, Team Port Angeles, Team Creeper, and my favorite, Team Mike Newton’s Mom), taken a day trip to Forks (discussing every possible aspect of all four Twilight books along the way), and answered the age old question “If you were dying of cancer and could get a wish granted through the Make-A-Wish Foundation, what would your Twilight wish be?”
I can’t say it enough Buttons, I love you so much and am so thankful you are my friend. SO! What would you like for your birthday??? I have some ideas, I couldn’t pick just one, so you’re getting them all! First, of course, just some nice pictures of Rob. I know you like smiley, giggly, Rob, so I tried to pick out ones that best represent that side of him for you. Like this one:
Also know you like babies, so I thought you might enjoy this:
I’m actually kind of hoping you don’t like that because I think it’s weird and creepy. Here, this is better:
Now since I’ve been gone for such a long time from this blog because I’m such a jerkface blogger, you may have missed out on some recent Twilight gems. Which works well for me, because I this way I can call them “gifts” for you. You like Disney movies, right? Go here. (I know, I know, I still haven’t figured out how to put videos in here. Jerkface blogger, I get it!) Next, you need to see this. It’s a little boring at first, but then it gets real good and fun. Now, what’s that Buttons? For your birthday you want nothing more than a new Johnny Flynn song?? As you wish, my darling. He just posted a new one on his myspace page for your birthday listening enjoyment. I had to “do” a few “favors” for Johnny in order to get him to share this with us, I hope it’s worth it. (j/k, even if you don’t like the song, it was totally worth it.)
And if that wasn’t enough, I have one last present for you. Even though we’re besties and more importantly Twilight besties, I can’t remember if you are on Team Robsten or Team Nonsten. But since you’re so sweet I’m going to assume it’s Robsten and therefore I have the best present ever for you. Apparently, over the New Years holiday, Rob and Kristen were spotted on the Isle of Wight in England together. It started with a couple pictures from a preteen girl:
And then another picture appeared that apparently shows Rob, Kristen, and the majority of the Britpack:
Here’s one without the writing if you want it:
I have no doubts that that’s Rob and Kristen, (and Tom Sturridge in the back to the right), but I’m not convinced about the rest. They’re all so bundled up, looking like a hobo gang it’s hard to tell. That’s not really the point though, is it? The point is that Rob and Kristen are vacationing together, which to me, means they are in fact, a couple. I know I’ve been very hesitant to believe in any of this without REAL proof, but I think we have it now. I don’t know anyone else who vacations halfway across the world with their non-boyfriend buddy for the holidays, do you? No, no, I didn’t think so. So there you have it. I’m officially declaring them a couple and officially declaring myself on Team Robsten. BTW, there have been lots of other reports about this, like which bar/pub/beer garden they were at on New Year’s Eve, and about TomStu’s grandmother owning a house on this Isle of Wight, but it’s all hearsay and we’re better than that.
So I guess that just about does it… One more time Buttons, I love you so much and HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!!
PS I realize you may not read this until maybe tomorrow or even the next day or even the day after that. But know that I did officially finish it on your birthday, so it still counts. I LOVE YOU! And so does Rob!
