I'm..... frightened for RPattz's sake. This isn't just a "Twilight" superfan -- it's a fan obsessed with Cullen!RPattz

I did see a few Jacob/Taylor Lautner things in the other rooms. You know, pictures of the... younger actor who... isn't a legal adult yet...
Okay, that's not better.

That last one... HUAGH. Embarrassment squick triggered so hard.

YES YES YES. Also, her poor husband -
"Hey sweetie, how do you feel about making love to me while Edward the Creepy Sparklepire watches us from every wall with his cold dead creeper eyes? Honey? Honey?"

WHY? I mean, yeah sure aesthetically speaking but also that 56 year old woman skeeving on RPattz. Not okay, ma'am. Not okay.

I think that's the thing - and not only that, she wanted to do that to her own bedroom. With her husband there.uh
(Not only that, homegirl's older than my mother and lusting over a guy who's four years younger than I am
. I'm open-minded to May/December relationships, but not May 2010/December 2110
Yes, I know, I exaggerate a bit, but still, what. Age/2 + 7. Age divided by two plus seven.

Well the teenagers, whatever. Teenage girls make shrines, mine was a more generic dragon/unicorn theme, but I knew quite a few classmates who had shrines to Fox Mulder or Angel from Buffy. That's pretty normal.
The 56 year old on the other hand.... *shudder* I suppose we should be relieved it's the guest room, not her actual bedroom. Maybe her husband put his foot down.

That's what the quote on ONTD said, the 56 year old's husband told her no to decorating their bedroom so she decorated the guest bedroom.

HOW CAN ANYONE SLEEP WITH THE CARDBOARD CUTOUT IN THE ROOM

"I feel like I'm slowly infecting my school with the Twilight fever!"
And the only prescription is more sparkles

I feel so sorry for whoever has to come over and sleep in that guest room. *shudders*

GOOD GOD, THEY STILL HAVE THAT BACKGROUND A;DSLKFJ
So much second-hand embarrassment. I just. I can't even.

*eyes massive amount of Transformers toys and merchandise on her shelves*
Yeaaah. I don't know if I have any room to criticize, tbh.
Mon, Jun. 7th, 2010 02:10 am (UTC)
Oh boy. The 56-year-old is only two hours away from me. D:
Mon, Jun. 7th, 2010 04:02 am (UTC)
OK. The teen girls, and even the one in college? I totally get that. My room was a shrine to Duran Duran back in the 80's, so I can't fault them too
The 56 year old, OTOH? Oh lawd, my second-hand embarrassment squick kicked in HARD looking at that. And the fact that she wanted to decorate the bedroom she shares with her husband that way? Creeeeepy.

I'm kind of troubled by all the squick in the comments here, honestly. Apparently the minute you get married you're supposed to have urges for your husband and only your husband, didn't you know? You're especially not supposed to relive your teenage years by letting your inner fangirl loose over a sexy (hey, not to me, but then that's me) vampire who's basically meant
to embody "lust object for girls who can't express lust" (be that teenage girls expected to remain abstinent by their families or suburban middle-aged women. With the exception of that one teenaged girl's room I'm not seeing evidence of an RPattz shrine, I'm seeing adoration of Edward The Fantasy Vampire-- as put out by a movie, yes, and a young actor, yes, but still Edward The Fantasy Vampire.
I just don't get the urge to police the sexuality of women in midlife. A middle-aged man gets a Ferrari and goes to Hooters, and it's a perfectly normal expression of the conflict between their sexuality and memories of youth and the expected, desexualized suburban professional family man life. A woman
does the same damn thing in a way that lets her
relive her youth? That's sick and wrong. WTF, people?

And I thought the bookstores with RPattz staring and James Deaning at me wherever I went was bad.
Do any of them have the RPattz shower curtain up, I can't help but wonder.

The picture in the Jezebel article seemed normally over-the-top for teenage superfans of anything (man, in my X-Files days I can recall a few...)--and then I saw the woman in the picture.

Even when I was so obsessed with The Lord of the Rings that my family banned the subject from the dinner table because I wouldn't talk about anything else, my room was not that bad.
...On the other hand, I would have been absolutely delighted if it was. So.

Er, if anyone can SEE this, does anyone else notice the rolling toddler on this page about screaming pitchy fits?
