I want to tell you something. It’s not really a secret so I may as well just go ahead and say it……I have a crush on Robert Pattinson. Who the hell is that? If you have never heard of him I am going to assume that you live in a cave in the furthest reaches of some pre-Pleistocene glacial hinterland. OR, perhaps you just have better things to do with your time than keep up with who is au courant in the world of celebrity.

    Is it abnormal for a grown woman…ahem…a grown MARRIED woman to be crushing on some random actor? Well, no. I don’t see the harm. Even my husband doesn’t see the harm, in fact I think he is highly amused by my growing level of obsession. I like my crush, my crush makes me happy. And happy is a good place to be. But unless you shun all forms of media you must have either heard of him, or seen his face plastered on the front of some rag mag. Rob (I call him that, I will assume he doesn’t mind) is a quirky British actor who has recently been catapulted into the feeding frenzy of fame because he starred in a little movie called ‘Twilight’. Oh he’s been around for a few years, some of you may have seen his portrayal of Cedric Diggory in ‘Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire’. Before you start creeping out, I was not all giddy over him when he was 19, no no no, it was a few years later…much later. Ok so I drooled over him in ‘Twilight’ in spite of his acting ability, because damn it, he looks HOT! I mean holy freakin’ hell….will you LOOK at him!?

    But just so you don’t leave me thinking I am some vacuous harpie who is only attracted to looks….that’s not why I like my crush. He’s quirky, funny, and he seems intelligent. I am not going to tell you that I have watched him in hours of YouTube video interviews. No. I am not going to tell you that. He’s very charming in those videos…not that I have seen them, and he has such a dorkishness about him that I can’t help but find him utterly adorable. Oh, and he wore a tux when he presented at the Oscars this year. He seemed nervous and uncomfortable as he stood there on stage, being watched by millions, but he looked great in his tux. He looked dashing. He looked drool worthy. Sigh…..

    That’s me then.
