Happy Birthday, UAB!!!

Happy Birthday to our very own, Utterly Absurd Bella...

...I think the name says it all...

Thanks for being one of my teaching commiserators (I swear to God we really do love what we do!!), my fanfic friend, my fellow Rob h00r, the hostest with the mostest (even if I didn't tell you I was coming...), and all around great friend.  Thank you for listening when I complain and for making me laugh with the randomness that we all tend to have now and again.  I'm so glad I've gotten to know you over the last year and am proud to call you my friend.  Now, I didn't have a lot of time to work on something "fancy" like I normally would and for that I feel terrible...but I figure a little Rob can make anything feel here it is, my gift to you:

...because everyone should get a little candy for their birthday!!  Happy birthday UAB!!! Love ya! 


Dear UAB,
My Twi-Sister
This one time, I was commenting
on a were there.
We were talking about familiar places,
and you decided to friend me.
Little did we know just how much
we’d have in common...
Everyday, I am thankful to have you
in my life, to make me smile
to make me laugh and make
me do things I normally
wouldn’t do!
I’m not talented enough to make
you one of those “Happy Birthday, UAB!”
Rob pics...but I do have something you
just might like...
Happy Birthday, my friend!
HB Marie



You were my bloggy bestie before I even knew what a bloggy bestie was. Meeting you was one of the best things that could have happened to me. You shared with me your love of Twilight and a super hot guy named Rob. The two of us have gotten to do some pretty amazing things together; from the silly to the serious, from the non-celebrity related things to seeing the Precious in person. Without you, these things wouldn't have been possible. Faux Forks was probably the funnest thing I've ever done with a cardboard Edward and that's saying something coming from the girl who.... well you were at that party, you remember. I can't wait to celebrate today with you. Happy Birthday Marie. I love ya! Thanks for introducing me to this crazy world. I can't wait to share DuRob on the big screen with you.

Love, Kassie



Happy Birthday Marie,
 I hope you don’t mind but, I unwrapped your gift for you! I knew you wouldn’t mind sharing.

Marie, I can never thank you enough for how you single handedly introduced me to a whole new world. This on line world where Twilight was the frame, Rob was the center and where you led me to the incredible women who fill in the rest of our beautiful friendship quilt.
 Happy, happy birthday!!!



From all of us here at 12months of Rob we hope that you have a wonderful and special day...and that you get to enjoy at least a little of "our boy"...because everyday, especially birthdays, could use a little more Rob!!!  Love ya, girl!  Happy Birthday!!!!!!!  


  1. Awwww… girls are so sweet! What a wonderful way to wake up. Thank you so much for all of the birthday wishes!!!

    @Lauren – When I saw you on my doorstep in February, that was one of the best surprises of my life! I feel so lucky to have gotten to know you and actually meet you in person. Thank you so much for lollipop Rob - it’s the sweetest thing you could have given me. :) I could watch him with that lolly all day!

    @HB Marie - If our hooking up doesn’t prove that it’s a small world after all, then I don’t know what does. It’s just crazy how things worked out – that we have so much in common and that you lived so close. Thank you for being a great Twi-Sister and for Stoli Rob!

    @SassyKassie – what can I say? You are my bloggy BFF and one of my best RL friends as well! You are always there for me, and always up for some Twi-related and even some non Twi-related shenanigans! Almost all of my best Twi-memories involve you, but nothing can top seeing Rob in person on Oprah and you yelling “Rob” and him looking and waving at our crazy asses. I love ya too bb and I cannot wait to see DuRob with you later today – I couldn’t ask for a better birthday present!

    @kiTT – Oh, I am so getting Kinky for my birthday – with a little side of DuRob! Thank you so much for the birthday wishes!

    @Fran – I don’t mind getting my gift already unwrapped. Nope, not at all! LOL You know Fran, I still remember our first emails back and forth, and I was so excited when I read how much we had in common. I’m so glad that we have become more than just online friends, and got to meet in person this past year, and share some great times together. I’m looking forward to many more years of fun!

    @Lisa – You are awesome – you combined the two things I really love together! This picture is perfect!!!! I’m going to have to use it for my wallpaper! Love the video too! George is too damn cute singing “A little bit softer now….” Thank you for the birthday wishes and for being an amazing friend! I’m lucky to have been able to meet you and do some great Twi-stuff together!

    Thank you again girls for making my old-ass feel really special today! I love you all so much and don't know what I would do without you girls! Big hugs and and sloppy kisses to all of you! xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxox

  2. Marie,
    At the time you found me, I had just started peeking into the online world. We had a PC but I never used it but for school use. Then I went on line for the sole purpose of trying to figure out why I was so attached to this "silly" little book which led me to the movie, which led me to Rob. It was the Rob thing that made feel confused as to why I even cared about this scruffy little shit and I started getting obsessed. I didn't dare mention it to anyone I knew because, well they'd think I'd gone nuts. When I saw the title name TJA, seriously, I said, gee there's a place for me because of the "Anonymous" part. I needed to see if there were other crazy ass middle aged women as mesmerized as I'd become. Saw your invite to describe myself and figured WTH. When you emailed back and so soon with OMG we have so much in common...I was like, YES! I'm not crazy. You "saw" me Marie, and not only that, you made me be "seen" by others...the rest is history. So I bow down in honor of the woman who popped my cherry. And I'm so glad you did. My life is so much sweeter for it.
    Happy Birthday!!!!!!

  3. Miss Marie! Who knew? I think it was fate. LOL If it wasn't for you, I wouldn't have met the Perv Twins and Madrina. I wouldn't have gotten to see 100 Monkeys and traipse through downtown to do it. "It's only a few blocks!" My ass! Meeting up with you and the girls for Water for Elephants will be day I will never forget. How's that arm? You were gracious enough to let me smack you through the first many women do that??? Only one. There's no one like you! Have a lovely day with DuRob. I wish I could go with you. Just not in the cards today.

  4. Look at all the people you single handedly pulled together! Without you this just wouldn't be any fun! I love ya girly Happy Birthday!

  5. Happy birthday Marie!! Hope you're having a lovely day. Make sure you take some 'me' time today and/or let someone spoil you! You deserve nothing but the best!


You've given me no choice...but to comment.
