The weekend round-up

Morning Ho's!  How was everyone's weekends?  After getting a taster of spring arriving last week, the North West of England managed to revert back to some good old rainy weather here.  Not that rain's necessarily a bad thing:

Saturday, as I mentioned, I took my two oldest boys to the museum with two of their friends on Saturday.  We saw Stan the T-Rex and I resisted buying the cuddly wolf cub toy in the museum shop.  Ollie spent the day flashing his 'Rob plaster' that he'd got over the cut on his hand - bless, it's a good job we chose to take friends and their mums that know about my Twi-obsession otherwise the children may have found themselves friendless back at school today. 

What Rob plasters should really be used for

Thomas's mum came to collect him from our house a couple of weeks ago after he'd been to play after school.  I didn't even think about it, but she walked into the kitchen, clocked FSE and said "Oh, you're not alone in the daytime then?".  I sent her home with the Twilight DVD and she's now waiting patiently until I can bear to share my New Moon one.

So, on to Sunday.  The day started at 4.30am when Will started being sick.  Luckily I'd fallen asleep when the kids did on Saturday night so I happily sat downstairs packing in some extra puter time.  He recovered ok but then in the afternoon Harry started.  He's still not well now bless him, but MrStan scored big brownie points by staying downstairs with him for the night while I caught up on my sleep. 

Actually, I'm getting worried about Mr Stan, yesterday morning he suggested we have a Twilight night last night because he hasn't seen the first film yet (!!!) and this morning, not only did he start reading a piece out of the paper about Rob to me (inserting his own comedy alternatives to what the actual story said), but at the end when it said 'continued on pages 34 and 35' he flicked ahead.

Ok, enough droning about my life.  Who's got the New Moon DVD?  Have you watched it yet?  Any new thoughts?  If you don't have it then are you going to?  What are you looking forward to the most?

Becky, and anyone else interested - forgot to add, yes, at a guess we'll be looking at somewhere around Mary (Burton area) or Nibbles (West Mids) for Eclipse :o)

Had to pop back and edit because this gif just popped up on Twitter via @ThinkingofRob!!


It's from the Eclipse sneak peak, but I don't think it counts as a spoiler :o)

Yes, my NW dvd came on sat. Woot! I managed to get my hubs to watch it with me that night, only because it was our first blu-ray disc and he was checking its quality. Whatever!!
I only saw it once at the pics, I had forgotten how good it is. i enjoyed it much more this time round! Not seen any of the extras yet and hubs even managed to fast forwrd throught the RM & Eclipse previews!!!
My youngest goes to pre school after lunch, so I will busy drooling this afternoon!

Just off to check how far Burton is from me!!

Becky said...

in my excitement I lost the ability to type!! It should of course be NM!!!!

NibbleitPattinsonakaNebilet said...

I bought my NM today from Asda for £8-BARGAIN, also bought the Robsessed dvd for £3 DOUBLE BARGAIN!!!! I'm so happy lol. I've watched NM a few times as I had a dodgy copy to fill the gap till now.
I shall have plenty of time to catch up with all things Twi related when I'm off YAY!
I started to watch Twilight again on saturday as I felt able to open my eyes and lift my head off the pillow in the afternoon. My sis in law took kids out so I though YES, Rob therapy. Alas they came back before the film ended but at least I got a Rob injection (I wish!! fnarr, fnarr!!!)
Still feel shit today but hope will get better otherwise they won't do my back. Do I lie and hope the GA doesn't fuck me up if I am ill or do I tell them and put back off?? Dilemma!
Loads of work so that's it for now-Laters x

Mary said...

Good morning Ho's
The shitty weather has reached us today too Stan :(
How does Rob manage to still look fuckable in a corset? It's beyond me bit I reckon I still would if he'd rolled himself in dogshit!
I nearly had to inflict harm on one of Jamies mates yesterday when an ad for NM came on the TV and he started to slag off The Precious one. Luckily for him Jamie told him that I would undoubtedly hurt him severely if he didn't shut up right away LOL
I love how Edward sparkles so beautifuly in NM and I think the bits where they turn into wolves is fantastic

Jelena @ Twiholic said...

Ok, is that a beanie Rob is wearing? Good lord!

Haven't bought the DVD, nor will I, at least not for a very long time.

Good to hear about Mr.Stan coming around. Last week, I was sitting in front of the computer, when MM called to me from the living room, urging me to see something - and lo and behold, it was a behind the scenes Twilight clip. I enjoyed it very much, and told him that afterwards that he scored brownie points. :D

I can't believe he wears the damn beanie to exercise in. Other that that i just lost a good 5 minutes watching him run. Did you notice the man video taping him? I did.

I HATE stomach poor thing. It's worse that any other cold out there.

Yes..I got my DVD and my Jacob movie cell, and I haven't watched it yet (don't throw anything!) I need to wait for a quiet evening. Maybe tonight.

Stan said...

@Mrs.P, I'm glad I'm not the only one to be hypnotized by Rob running. And yes, I noticed the man videoing him, I think I noticd everything and even went through a few scenarios regarding the corset, it's purpose and it's placement between his legs and the person who had to fasten him into it too. Some people have the best jobs.

LOL at you getting the Jacob cell! ;o)

TooMuchCoffee said...

Yeah, I just can't deal with that beanie. He must really hate his hair or something. But once I block that out, hmmm...watching him run is a new experience. They must have put a picture of my backside in front of the treadmill to get him to go that fast! *snort*

I went to Walmart Saturday morning to get the DVD. Of course watched it Saturday evening. Then Mr. TM suggested watching it again last night. Who am I to complain?

So sorry to hear the kids got sick again. BIG brownie points for Mr. Stan helping you out that way AND for feeding your Twi/Robsession. Now if he offers to be the beta for your fanfic...LMAO!

Speaking of being sick, Travis called this morning, and he has strep throat...again. He was supposed to pitch tomorrow at the one ballpark that is the closest to our house. It figures!! We're just praying the zpack does it's thing, and we don't find ourselves discussing mono again :(

I know I'm in the minority, but I SQUEEEEED when I saw Rob running with his beanie on while we were watching the DVD extras at Mama Cougar's DVD Release Party. Luckily for me, MC is a fan of the beanie, too :) When I did my post about the party, I had to include the gifs of Rob running and rehearsing fight moves on my sidebar. I could have done without the short black socks, though. LOL!!

So I take it plasters are the same as Band-aids (adhesive bandages) in the States. Another word exchange. Love it. Glad you enjoyed seeing Stan the T-Rex with your son and friends and that he wasn't "outed" because of his plasters. Too funny about the mom finding FSE. So do you have a new Twihard friend now?

I haven't bought a NM DVD yet. I'm cheating and waiting for everyone to decipher which one has what before I decide. MC had the Walmart version which was awesome, but it didn't have any deleted scenes. My favorite Twilight version (I bought four freaking versions of it and am trying to avoid that with NM) is from Borders, but I don't hear anyone talking about that one - usually Walmart and Target.

Great post, Stan.

@ Lisa - well as soon as my Borders DVD shows up - IF EVER!!!! I will let you know how it is :)

@ Stan - I am sooo sorry about the kids but kudos to the big kid for helping out. My hubby has been better too. Hmmmm I wonder what could be going on??

I am most looking forward to seeing all the things I missed the first/only time I saw it in the theater and watching all the Italy scenes to reminisce about my time there :)

Hey Chicks! How they hangin?

First and foremost, I need to throw a ha-uge thank you to @Musing Bella! I had forgotten that I had "The List" on MY list (of fics to read) so when you mentioned it, I took a little wander over to Twilighted and OhMyGawdIAmSoGladIDid! Thank you, thank you, thank you for reminding me! It's sooooooo awesome!

Second, I want to apologize for not being here to participate in the FFF! I do have good reason...kinda. See, on Friday, I got a little tip *snicker* that the online usage on work computer was going to be monitored. I figured that would probably be as good as reason as any to not visit any of my dirty mouthed, horny ho friends...and my kids were still at home, so that further limited my bloggy time! Grrrr!

Anyhoo...I got another tip *snicker* today that my computer is still being monitored. WTF?!?! It's not like I'm writing and/or reading porn while I'm at work...oh, wait...yes it is. *blush*

Point bloggy time is limited this week. I'm so sorry you cannot see my nearly nekkid avi as much as you might, whatever.

Also, as mentioned above, I'm reading The List and I cannot get enough. That's where I'm off to right now...

You guys know I love you, right?

Becky said...

I had a spare 5 mins ( with 3 kids aswell, lol!)and decided to have a peek at The List, I appear to be hooked, I knew I should have just gone to bed! I blame you @TwiWeasel!! I can't stop reading and I am going to be so knackered tomorrow!! But thanks for such a great rec!

Stacked Like Sookie said...

Hope your feeling better @Nibbs. We don't get NM til next month. I don't have words for how jealous I am of you ho's.

Musing Bella said...

LOL @ TwiWeasel and Becky - "THE LIST" IS AWESOOOOOOMMMEEE! You're welcome. ;-) It remains my favorite canon story.

OK, I have the DVD, but have only watched the special features (except the documentary). This time, none of the deleted scenes felt like they should have been included, IMO, which was a relief. I have the Target BluRay, btw, and a Volturi cell (w/the back of Edward's head!). Probably we'll watch the movie tomorrow, after my oral surgery.

Yeah, that's right.
