Pimping for Pattinson - my work is never done

Vote for Rob in Glamour's 50 Sexiest Men poll. He won this poll last year, so let's get him that title again.

I know, I know, I ask you to vote for Rob alot. But it's really not for Rob - it's more for the following selfish reasons:

1) To irritate people who bash him

2) To get to see him in print and online when he wins these things

3) To keep him in demand in Hollywood, so we get to see him in more films

Come on, you know it's true, he IS the sexiest man, so just do it!

Here's some proof in black and white, if you need any convincing. And to drool over:

Seriously? Teen Choice Awards - you can STILL vote

Jeez. This is like the longest voting period ever. So head on over to Teen Choice Awards and help Rob and Remember Me WIN an award!

I've been over there voting at this site so many times I feel like I'm married to it. Which makes me feel old and tired, like my real marriage. They have more categories for this thing than the Academy Awards, Grammy's and Emmy's combined. Well maybe not. But they keep adding more all the time, so as soon as they create a category for "Best Zit Cream" (teen awards, get it??) I think it will.

At this point I just skim through and look for categories that have Rob, and if I'm feeling generous, some of the Twilight cast. And anything with Modern Family (best show ever!) and anything I can vote against Justin Bieber and Miley Cyrus.

Put aside at least 3 hours to wade through this thing, but if Remember Me WINS, it will all be worth it, right?

**Note to Summit: I'm still waiting for my paycheck for promoting this film in an effort to make up for your shiteous attempt. **

I love hammocks

I've always had a thing for hammocks. Probably because they represent the ultimate in recreational laziness. And sleeping. I am a sleeper.

My ex-bf and I took a trip to the Outer Banks, N.C. and fell in love with the hand-woven hammocks they manufacture down there.

Ahhhh, that's what I'm talking about.

Unfortunately we lived in a condo at the time, so we could only dream of having our own someday.

Eventually we moved into a house with a huge yard, with huge black walnut trees - 2 of them perfectly situated to hang a hammock. So when his birthday came around that first June, it was hammock time! (Not to be confused with Hammer Time, which popularized pants with a crotch that coincidently kind of look like a hammock.)

I swear I could swing in that crotch. Pillow included.

I can't tell you how many wonderful, lazy hours I spent in our hammock. When I wasn't dodging black walnuts falling around me like hand grenades.

In a setting kind of like this.

Which probably contributed to our eventual breakup. He was a do-do-do kind of guy, and I am someone who functions best directing my servants at the castle. After 7 years together and no marriage proposal I moved out - thinking THAT would produce a proposal. Um, nope.

What it did do was lead him to another woman. And after berating him about her at some point, he mentioned all the places they had sex in MY house. Including....the hammock.

And then, OMG, something horrible happened to them both! This bear killed and ate them and took over the hammock!

Just kidding, just kidding. It was a mountain lion.

Needless to say, that was a crushing blow - to my love of hammocks. Happily, though, he quickly got engaged to her and then broke it off just as quickly. Let's just say time has proven this guy is marriage phobic. It wasn't about me, or the hammock.

Eventually I climbed back into the hammock again, this time at this incredible lakeside resort outside of Asheville, N.C. called Highland Lake Inn (Hey, what is it with hammocks and North Carolina??) If you like a casual, lake and mountain setting, this is the place.

Highland Lake Inn. They give good hammock.

But clearly I need to get off the East Coast and place my ass in THIS hammock. Man, this looks nice!

After this Asheville trip, I was longing once again for my own hammock. But I was in yet another condo. Boo freakin' hoo. (At this point I wasn't missing the boyfriend as much as the hammock, and my huge freezer. Damn, I still miss that freezer...)

Time went on, and someone else really, really wanted to marry me. So I said yes to Mr. Bitch and found this at Crate and Barrel when I went to register for our wedding - thinking we could put it in our townhouse yard:

Yeah, um, nope. This fucker was huge! I swear it took up the entire yard and looked ridiculous. I was crushed.

Sooo.... I've been hammock free for a while. And haven't really given it much thought until


Holy Hammock Hotness!!!!

Now I want a hammock again. This hammock specifically. The one that comes with Rob in it already. GAH!!!! The ultimate hammock fantasy.

I'll even buy a house with a yard to make this dream come true...

Remember Me #1 Film of 2010!

According to me! Well, and these guys. I have no idea what or who Entertainment Focus is, but they have great taste!

So in honor of this great honor, I am posting the latest stills released from Remember Me below.

Mr. Bitch watched the movie with me for the first time this past weekend (I say first time because he's already caught some more during my subsequent viewings) and the first thing he said was "Rob was really good in that". Oh be still my heart! But he didn't like the ending - because Rob died and that made him upset. Or that's what he said.

I can't get Mr. Bitch to vote in the Teen Choice Awards to get Remember Me even MORE recognition, but you can. Just remember your birthdate falls in the same year Remember Me begins (1991) and you'll be all registered and ready to vote.

Here are Rob's categories:

Movie Actor: Fantasy
Movie: Drama (Remember Me)
Movie Actor: Drama
Male Hottie

And to reward you for your efforts, here's some Rob as Tyler goodness (click for larger - seriously):
