Kinker Tink goes to TwiCon

So I go to twicon, all excited to meet fans of the blog, give them a Team Rosie button and what happens? I don’t get one picture. I didn’t take a picture of a WFE fan or even myself in the Team Rosie tee. Blame it on Rob. I was entirely focused on the convention highlight: the 7pm panel with Robert Pattinson. I couldn’t think very well past that information. Complete tunnel vision. In fact, I kept tweeting I’d be somewhere, then I’d move. I finally just sat down for a bit to collect myself and that’s when people found me :)

Luckily, some of you tweeted us if you met me so I can do this:

*waves at*

You guys are awesome and so are the other people who got pinned by kinky tinky ;)

Sorry I didn’t get everyone’s name (Tell us who you are!) but here are a couple pics shared by fans.

a fun tidbit: many of you that came to get a button from me kept saying “Bobo”. For the life of me I couldn’t figure out why. I was thinking, “why are they talking about the orangutan? This is Rosie on the button…not Bobo.” Little did I know Kinker Debb had you guys use the code word “Bobo”. Thanks alot, Kinker Debb! You know I wasn’t able to process things properly that day! A reader also tweeted, “wouldn’t it be funny if Rob came up and said “Bobo” for a button?!?!”

Pffft…yeah…real funny. Kill me now why dontcha? ;)

Another fun tidbit *giggle* probably the best tidbit for me…after the jump!

You guys know this infamous question?

That lovely lady who asked the question is a WFE fan and an H2O reader/follower! I felt like I was meeting someone famous…well maybe not quite because when I meet famous people I lose capability to speak but I DID feel very cool about meeting her.

It was funny because she was talking to me about the blog and trying to find me to get a button and I’m while she’s talking, I’m thinking, “Gosh she seems so familiar to me…but that’s impossible, right? Why does she look and sound so familiar?”

Somehow we got to a point in conversation when she mentioned she went to the Kimmel show and DING DING DING, the light bulb went off! I can practically recite that whole exchange LOL…I think part of it to her.

She shared with me that it wasn’t even her question to ask but was given to her to ask by another girl. It’s now a pretty classic question in the Rob fandom and we noted that since then – Rob has been buttoning properly or not at all LOL good times ;) Although I do truly love his haphazard buttoning ways.

Again, much love to the ladies I met. Glad you found me for a button. Wear it with pride and support WFE! GO TEAM!

Thanks @alison4828 for the vid :)

  2. Sue says:

    I WANT A BUTTON!!! Where do you get them at??????? Unfortunately I live in OHIO…no likelihood of a twi-conv or WFE convention or premiere(if ever there is one) coming my way….WAHHHHHHH!!!

    You met the shirt misbuttoning lady!! I love her! I can quote the whole thing too… and I loooove when he leans forward and says “My shirt misbuttoning?” Thank you, Kimmel lady!!! It’s very exciting that you’re an H2O reader. My favourite line from you is when Rob says “I have a button done wrong?” and you say “sometimes more”.

  4. Lucky you, Tink, for getting to go to the convention and meeting up with some WFE/H2O fans and the infamous Kimmel question fan. It was definitely a classic question and response!!!

    Living in Illinois (I feel your Ohio pain, Sue!), the closest I got to the convention was a friend I’ve met through blogging who was there and turned her cell phone and let me listen in to the panel. I heard mostly screaming, of course, but I did hear Rob laugh a couple of times, which gave me goosebumps. Can’t imagine what it was like to be there in person.

    I met @MyRobPattinson and she directed me to you after the Holy Trinity’s panel. It was nice to meet you and I love my button! Thanks again :)

    That’s so fun that you met the girl who asked the best question of that night! And we can totally understand why you didn’t take one picture…all your energy needed to be focused on what was to come later that day. You got awesome video for us of that and we so than you for it!

    You’re welcome for the video…I was glad to help and love working on editing Rob…he is so yummy!

  7. Elizabeth says:

    She asked the best question!

    I remember the last time he was on the Ellen Show and he was misbuttoned and his shirt collar was stuck under his jacket.
    I thought how could they let him go on TV like that, doesn’t anyone look at him before he walks on the stage?

    I wanted to re button his shirt, fix his collar and pat him on the cheek and say, Okay Robbie, you can go and play now but don’t get dirty before the show! How adorable he is!

    • Anna says:

      Elizabeth, totally agree! I sat there with all those motherly instincts too, he just brings them out in me. Who did let him loose with his shirt all over the place! But you l now what . . . that’s what makes Rob Rob!

  8. kimberly says:

    That’s great! He could just lose the buttons all together and that would be just fine! :)

  9. Maria says:

    Love it that you met the Kimmel lady. Love the question! Classic.
    Hey, Kinker Tink, any answer to the question, if Rob was wearing WFE shoes at TwiCon? So looked like it. I know it was hard to look away from the face but I did notice the shoes. My friend and I are still laughing about it. What do you think?

    • Sue says:

      I noticed the shoes too-….very quickly though…I had other parts of him I was focusing on!!

    • tinkrbe1l3 says:

      cant say for sure. if i had to put money on it, i’d say yes because im a risky gambler when im not spending money. ;) i can see rob liking jacob’s boots and wanting to wear them off set. *shrugs* we may not know until we get official stills.

    Wish I could have been there… but Chicago is a bit far. :( I loved reading all the updates on twitter, though. Fun stuff!

  11. Alexandria says:

    Wish I could have been there too, but Dominican Republic is waayyyy too far away, but I am glad some of you could go go gaga over the YummyRob…OMG he is killer gorgeous!!! Girls, I will be dreaming about the real him through your eyes.

  12. Anna says:

    Where are all you guys from? Any paddies among you?!

  13. Alice87 says:

    Love the team Rosie button! Just FYI, Bobo is the chimp, not the orangutan. The orangutan didn’t have a name until the end of the story. :)

        Hi Tinker, only to tell you to go into the Robert Pattinson Australia site. Today I found two STUNNING photos of robert wearing a hood, and let me tell you, he looks like an angel, nothing less. I don´t know how to send them to you (you know, not a computer wizzard I am), but they have a lot of photos that I have not seen before. Those two big ones, show his eyes like ….I don´t know, I am still speechless!!!
