The Edbrella Towers Twi-tour

Hello!  Today I thought I'd invite you on a Twi-tour of Edbrella towers to see how I force poor Mr Stan and the Stanlets to live.

So, come on, take your place in the queue, you're in Britain now you know ;o)

Ok, the bus is here! 

*Tut*, I see Taylor was at the front of the queue.

So, welcome, welcome, come on in.  Can I get you a brew? (That's what they drink in Lancashire btw).  No, didn't think so, I've seen the likes of you lot before, you'll be waiting for the offer of something stronger.  I'm right aren't I?  Hmm, thought so.

Ok, so just inside the back door we have the downstairs toilet door:

This used to be on the inside of the door but apparently it's scary if you're 5 *rolls eyes*.  He obviously wasn't that scared because he managed to rip it.

Ok, into the hall now where we have this:

Unfortunately January features a forehead-vein shot that I can't get past.  As much as I try to appreciate the Pattinson beauty, all I can see are those damn veins. Hmph.

On the other side of the hall is the cloakroom:

My 2yr old made such a fuss when I took this down in the kitchen to put the New Moon one up that I had to find somewhere else to display this ;o)

Anything inside the cloakroom?  Why yes!

Well, a girl just never knows what Team she'll wake up on, it's good to have options!  The blue one is reversible for Team Jacob :oP

A surprise lurking on the floor (quite a pleasant one actually, far worse surprises lurk in my nooks & crannies, let me tell you).

And yes, this is the hallowed home of the Edbrellas!

Oh, and don't even think about it, I forgot to post this pic from outside the cloakroom door

"Please Fluffy, just one glimpse of the Edbrella?"

Right, up the stairs. 

Yep, I always keep a copy in the toilet.  I have three children under 6 and as far as Mr Stan knows, a problem with my bowels.  Why else would I have to keep locking myself in the toilet and not emerging for long periods at a time?  Muahahaaa ;o)

Into the bedroom where I have an underbed storage drawer.  Most of my purchases spend a little time here under cover before I pluck up the courage to reveal them to Mr Stan.

The Taylor book will be there until at least 11th Feb.

Bedside table?

Yep, it's open on the Rob side.  That may or may not be because I started on the Taylor side *hangs head*.

Ok, now downstairs to my haven - the kitchen!  'Ooh, how domesticated!' I hear you cry.  Erm, no.  That's where my laptop lives and therefore where I spend most of my time.

So, what might we find in the Edbrella kitchen?

Well, there's these guys to start with, they always make me smile :o)

My bag :o)


What about if we open a couple of cupboards?

Ooh, plasters!  And what might I use those for?  Well, you remember Nelly, right?


Ok, moving swiftly on.

My precious Rob mug.  This comes with instruction for others.  Mainly do not touch unless you want your balls to jingle.

On top of the fridge.

And finally, the piece de resistance...

Full Size Edward in Rob Corner! 

Is it just me or does the pink scarf make him look camp? :oS

Ok, that's all, now, anyone want something stronger to drink?!

PMSL love it you crazy Ho

Z Any Mouse said...

I noticed that the plasters (band-aids for those of us across the pond) are next to a wine glass. Is this in case of injury when having a Rob party?

Becky said...

OMG! So much stuff, I am in awe of you!! I doubt my posters will ever see the light of day, lol.

Snarkier Than You said...

YOU are a super-fan! hat's off to ya! - lol!! btw - i am squinting hard but that looks like a "Cupcake" scented candle to me - haha!! too funny! I might be able to have my blog but Mr. Snarky would freak the fuck out if I hung up that much Twilight gear! : )

ROFLMAO!!!! What a lovely tour!!!! The month of January will be tough to get through having to look at the vein, but I think we'll manage. Where to comment...I don't know where. The mug in the dishwasher, the place where Chimpsten rests on her days off, the closet, you're Nelly impression...this was awesome. Thank you Stan!

...I'm off to get my Passport...SO moving in!!


Cullen-ary Curser formerly Twi-swears said...

You're hillarious! I'd never be able to get away with that much shit - let alone having hung up. You shoulda seen the eye rolls from Mr. CC when I brought home the VF, which btw, is the only Rob porn in the house. Is there room for me too?

TwiWeasel said...

Mr. TwiWeasel would seriously shit some purple twinkies if I tried to put up even 1/100th of that much stuff...in fact, he did have a hissy fit over my Rob Cupboard and I took it down. (It's so much easier to live with my DH if I don't antagonize him, purposely or not.)

Anyhoo...Real life has been kicking my ass on a daily basis for the last 6 weeks or so. Hopefully things will get back to normal now that the kids are back to school and normal routines are coming back into play.

@ Stan - I think I must be failing at being a Twi-ho...I have never even heard of a couple of those books you have. *sigh*

@ STY - We are in the same boat, my friend...except Mr. TW really isn't all that thrilled with the blog, either. *shrugs*

@ Lisa - Make sure to pack your own laptop...Stan probably will not be willing to share hers.

@ CC - Love the new name, and I totes understand the lack of Rob Porn...

17foreverlisa said...

@TwiWeasel - *waving* Missed you! Things have been quiet around the neighborhood. Back out to buy a laptop...

Z Any Mouse said...

@TwiWeasel - I was wondering where you were. I thought maybe you'd gone hunting or something. Glad you are back!

Jelena said...

Stan, I'm so fucking jealous. All I have is my books, and they're neatly displayed on the book shelf. I have been scalded just for having a Twilight theme on my cellphone, I can't imagine the kind of shit I'd have to put up with if I put up the poster even. I guess it's all about pushing boundaries.

Anyway, I have missed you girls. I am sort of on a break, staying at my parents' house with my brother and husband, which is why I haven't been blogging or fan fictioning a lot lately. Plus, my grandmother had a stroke this afternoon (she lives in my parents basement), which really freaked me out, cause I've never had to deal with anything like it before. So my absence from the blogosphere may be even furthered - depending on how things go with my grandmother. She's 85, btw, but still, it's tough to see someone being so helpless. Hope this didn't cramp anyone's day, I just wanted to FYI you ho's.

Muchos love your way.

@Stan...that's a whole lot of Twi-ward going on! I can't compete..I own 4 books and a movie...that's it...I am a disgrace to twitardia.

*Kneels on the floor and bows* "I'm not worthy, I'm not worthy!"

@Jelena...Oh honey, I am so sorry. My thoughts and prayers with you and your family.

@TwiWeasel...glad you finally popped in. sorry you had such a rough christmas and that Mr. TW is such a Robiphobe

17foreverlisa said...

@Jelena - I'm sorry! And you have my thoughts and prayers, too.

Jelena said...

Thank you girls for your kind words. I will keep you posted. Really, I understand that this is all a part of life, and I'm happy that my grandmother got to live until such old age, but I was just stricken to see her so helpless and immobile. She's still not out of the wood though.

I have to go now. I will be back when I can.

Z Any Mouse said...

@Jelena - So sorry, I hope your grandmother pulls through. We'll be here when you get back. Take care.

Jelena said...

Just a quick reply to @Z Any Mouse and then I will really be off - IDK whether to hope she pulls through or that she doesn't, because this is the thing she feared the most - to have a stroke and be immobile and a burden to her family. It is strange how sometimes our fears become our reality.

Hi Jelena!!!! We've missed you!!! Take your time and come back when you are ready. xoxoxoxoxo

Dangrdafne said...

The picture of Chimpsten and her entourage brought the biggest smile to my face. I just love them.

I just recently created a shelf and a half for my Twilight stuff in my living room (books, magazines, sweetheart candies, Burger King swag my mom got for me, etc. It makes me happy to see Bella, Jacob and Edward watching over me every day.

@Jelena - prayers for the best outcome for your grandmother.

I could never get away with any of the shit you have in your house, all my fucking Rob stuff is at work I have my books, on the book shelf at home and the rest is in my office/shrine. I have my Rob calendar, cos you need a calendar at work right, fuck yeah I'm right! Then I have the poster calendar on the back of my office door cos I may forget the date as i move my head, I'm blonde (it's an excuse I know) so he is the last thing I see when I leave work, I have my annual and my vanity fair mag and my Xmas card is still up so I can look at Rob from another angle. I have about a gazillion pics on my mobile and as a moving slide show screen saver on my work computer. I'd really like a FSE but my hubtard would probably join Mr Wease and shit purple twinkies everywhere, a mini E would be nice but me and Lacey discussed this and I think he would be lost in the cleavage.
That could be the next series of lost, escape from Nibbles cleavage, a tale of life, death and suffacation!! School is out cos of snow and I think I will be only one in work cos all the other fuckers can't be arsed to make an effort and they live closer than me!!!
Grrrr that's it I am so going to do a minimum of work and play on the internet.....same shit as usual then ahem...

NibbleitPattinsonakaNebilet said...

ps Stan, can I please come to your house and visit and play with the toys?!!?!

Stan said...

Woo! So glad you all like it. I'd just like to say that, were I too have a nice house then I wouldn't have posters, etc plastered all over it. However, since I have crappy doors that Mr Stan is always promising to replace with oak and never does and walls that are covered in the various scuffs, marks and crayon of the Stanlets and we've not managed to decorate yet, then this is how I get through the desperation of spending my days here.

@ Z Any Mouse, the plasters are next to the wine glasses as the children are less likely to get hold of them there and I'm less likely to have to commit a terrible crime when I find some teddy covered in Edward plasters and my tin empty.

@ STY, that is indeed a vanilla cupcake scented candle, it has been in my life longer than Tattward, although it gets lit more since then ;o).

@ CC, that reminds me, where the hell did I stash all my magazine Rob porn?? I also see that I didn't find Breaking Dawn. Hmm, told you I had problems with my nooks & crannies

@ TwiWeasel, welcome back! Have missed you biatch :o). And you're absolutely right, you've more chance of getting near the Edbrella than the laptop.

@ Jelena, so sorry, just saw your news. Thinking of you all. My Grandmother also had a fear of having a stroke, we even found a letter after she'd died addressed to us about what to do of she'd had one and become incapacitated, it was heartbreaking. (((hugs))) xx

@ Dangrdafne love the idea of having all your stuff in one place! I think if I did that it mgiht occur to Mr Stan exactly how much I have, my keeping it spaced out and half hidden it fools his brain.

@ Nibbleit, my brain is burned out after your first comment but in answer to your second, yes, come anytime, we have spare beds :o). Actually far too many spare beds 6 and a toddler bed. TwiCon anyone? ;o)

NibbleitPattinsonakaNebilet said...

Burnt brains, not good! Twicon at Stan's YAY, I love it, it's a plan. Think we will wait for the thaw although Mr Stan would have a fun with us all invading his space LMFAO

NibbleitPattinsonakaNebilet said...

I did post a comment to Jelly Baby but maybe I didn't click on something, issues with computer today. My mum in law had huge stroke last year but she is coping and is getting better slowly so fingers crossed. Hope you and your family are coping xxx

Pam said...

How do you get your husband (live in, whatever you call him, Mr. Stan) to let you do this? My husband is totally jealous and loses his mind if he catches me even looking at RPatz on the cover of Vanity Fair. I wait until everyone is gone at work and school to make out with my daughter's Jacob cutout.

Stan said...

Oh, hubby was very jealous, one of my posters is taped all the way up because he ripped it off the wall! I just ignore him though and stick it back up, think he's just resigned to it now lol
