Hello girls!! Just popping in for a quick PhotoBucket update....

Hello Photobucket Users,

We’ve worked through the weekend with our infrastructure vendors on the issue that’s still affecting some of our users. Despite the many layers of redundancy that Photobucket utilizes in our data centers, we experienced a rare multiple hardware failure.

The probability of such an event is extremely rare (1 in 1 billion). Since it is so rare, we have had a difficult time estimating a resolution. We should have a resolution or at least a better timeline for resolving the issue by tomorrow (4/19/11) or Wednesday (4/20/11). At that time, we will post here, as well as our Facebook page and on Twitter.

We do understand your frustrations and there is a large team of Photobucket employees, consultants and vendors working hard day and night to resolve this issue as quickly as possible.

Yours,

Jim Goss

VP of Operations


I hope they get this fixed soon!!! :banghead:

JennJenn~ OMG girl that wallpaper is fabulous!!!! Soooo much better than any of my first tries!!! :clap: :clap:

Good morning ladies…

Everybody getting ready for the weekend??? I am, it’s going to be the best Easter weekend weather ever…
I have no big plans but I’m sure the guy will come up with a proper idea….

I’m at work already, it’s ridiculously early but the public transport is going on strike so I can’t get home with the tram today, I took the car to work but forgot that it was much quicker…hence I’m 15 minutes early…

I dreamed about you girls last night…I dreamed Shauni had a birthday party and I was buying gifts, but every time I saw something news I thought oh that’s a nice gift to Caryn, or Susie, or Amy…or any other girl in the house…it was so funny, my bf was laughing at me when I left with more perfume and make up than the store had…

Anyways,

Lulu, I think that it is one of the best characters of the American people, with their faith and church community people take care of other people, it isn’t like that here in Holland. People here are really depended on family and good neighbors.

Tracy, aah world peace…wouldn’t that be nice…
I love the quote you posted, I know Rob will look back in Twilight very fond in a few years…
Maybe, Rob will take Kris to the UK premiere, I can imagining both of them need a break and where better than at home…

Caryn, I can absolutely agree that Ma-Stew is a fierce protector…she knows the negative sides of the movie business and Kris is just so adorable that even I (the girl without a mother’s hormone) feels protective of them…Gossipcop did a piece about the kiss and I read the comments, so just made me ready to kill…there were a lot of Kstew fans that just burned Rob down…(don’t know why I’m even reading those things)…
Good luck with you busy work schedule…

Jaclyn, I’m sorry that you feel sore… a nice warm bath or massage might do miracles….

Amy, Easter shopping? Here in Holland we eat eggs and have big brunches for which you need to shop, what do you shop for in the US? The same things?
If you went clothing shopping I’m adding that to my list of ‘shop excuses’ I’m running out…
Gods, Rob and Peter in scrubs…that must be so bad for heart sickness…I had a dream once of Rob being a cop and pulling me over for speeding, I can tell you seeing a cop now makes me whimper…I just love men in uniform…
Did you start reading ‘to live a life’? I updated it two days ago and trying to get a chapter done this weekend. I would love to hear what you think by the time you are to the recent page…

JennJenn, love the wall paper….

I had to do something useful today so I better start…
:wave:
These violent delights, have violent endings...Like fire and gunpowder, they consume what they kiss

Tracy-Love your pics of Action Rob! Very thoughful to change into his pants, I am sure he appriciates it!

Tammy-Thanks for the Photobucket update! I know it's very frustraiting! And thank you for your kind words on my wallpaper :blush:

Marielle-Sounds like a cool dream! Thanks :) How is your mom doing?

Tracy mentioned storms around here(KY) and also for Tonsie and Rachel. I don't know how it is for them, but it's really stormy here. Different parts of the state are more severe than others. The eastern part of KY is in a tornado watch untill 9 am. They showed the radar on tv and my town might get some really bad rain, possible flooding. It's VERY windy right now. There are leaves all over the place outside and it's raining, but not really bad yet. It's supposed to get worse in about an hour. So please keep all those that are being affected in your thoughts!

Good morning ladies,

Here's the link to Part 2 of that intriguing interview with Jacqueline West, the costume designer for WFE
It's quite flattering to Rob, and mentioned how well he "dirtied up" on set 8-) , what incredible stature he has, and even compared Rob to old Hollywood movie star, Gary Cooper. ;)

Here's a lovely still of Robkowski I don't think we've seen...
Who knew a little dirt and sweat could look so good, complete with a little jawporn and collarbone flauntage? :swoon:

Jenn Jenn~ Hope you're safe with the crazy weather. We had straight line winds and gusts up to 50 mph, but no tornadoes here, last night.

Tammy~ Thanks for keeping us apprised of the Photobucket situation. I'm sure you are frustrated, and I didn't realize just how much I would miss looking at all of your gorgeous banners everyday. Maybe all of Rob's loveliness broke Photobucket, hmm? ;)

Marielle~ I'm sure you'll enjoy the beautiful weather this weekend. Will it involve any trips to the beach? You always have the best dreams involving the Halfway House, or Rob. I hope Rob does take Kristen to the UK WFE premiere. Is she busy filming anything at the moment? Will Snow White, or something else be her next project? Any bits of news available anywhere about the filming of the wedding in BD? Especially in light of the recent picture leaks, Summit is probably keeping wedding pics and news locked up tight as a drum.

Have a great day ladies. Only two more posts to go before I hit 1000! :clap:

**EDIT: Don't forget about Rob's appearances on Ellen and Jimmy Kimmel today and tonight!! :clap:

Happy Hump Day!!
*Had to do some last minute rearranging. Tracy totally stole my HumpDay gift! :lol:

Jaclyn~ I know that feeling. We did the same thing on Sunday, knowing there were storms coming all this week. I’m sure your coworkers will understand about your appointment. These things happen.

Susie~ I’m planning on getting to the chapter you emailed Monday today at work, so look for an email from me. We’ve had two nights of storms so I was offline (I know, right?) the last two days and couldn’t get to it.

Amy~ Could not agree more. Truth be told, that was how we all started to figure out what was actually going on between them, way back in the day *giggle* The way she would look at him, or he would look at her. We shippers lived on longing glances and brief furtive touches for what feels like years. But, in the end, they are just so obvious when they are around each other. That’s why the shipperdom was always asking, “how can people NOT see this?!” :lol:

JennJenn~ WOWZA!!! Truly gorgeous, sweetie. Thank you for sharing. And don’t worry about not mega-posting. We all understand.

Tracy~ :lol: Awww, we always knew he was a good man! BWAHAHAHAHAHA!! I can just imagine you trying to put his pants back on. Granted, the idea of RobWard being pantless (even in action figure form) would be enough to scramble any woman’s brain! MON DIEU!!!!! Wha… What do… What can you say…*gulp* in the face of such rugged beauty? *whimper* I'm telling you, in all those "dirtied up, working man" pictures, he looks so... *shudders* UNF... virile, like he could build you a kitchen island and then ravage you on it!!! RAWR!!!!!

Tammy~ Grrrr! How frustrating. My issues were fixed fairly quickly and I’ve had access back since the weekend. Do you pay for your account? If you do, I would demand at least a partial refund for the complications. Also, I wonder if the reason we have so many blank signatures around the HH is that people just link directly to your account, rather than saving it to their own. I know my siggy is saved to my own folder.

Marielle~ What a very sweet dream. Yeah, that’s why I never read the comments and try to stick to sites that are supportive. I’ve even stopped visiting Lion & Lamb because they got to be such “nonStens” to use the term. I couldn’t stand the negativity and hate. I’ll never really understand why people think it’s okay to tear others down like that. I don’t get how people can claim to love or support someone and then totally tear apart their significant other. It makes no sense to me. I guess it might be one thing if he or she were with someone who mistreated them or acted the fool or made them unhappy. But, Rob & Kristen both are good people, hard-working and genuinely loving. And, most importantly, they make each other blissfully happy. So, why, if you truly admire and support one of them, would you tear down the person they clearly love?

TeeHee. Tracy's right. Don't forget Rob on Ellen!! Apparently we get to hear more about his underwears and a... *gulp* wardrobe malfunction. :twisted:

Laters!

Happy Hump Day all!

It was such a busy day at work today! Whew! I am pretty tired now...

To the posts!


Susie - LOL, I didn't mean to be mysterious - I guess that's what happens when you rant & don't proof read afterwards ;) LOL. I just didn't want to leave lots of extra work for my work mates. But I told them today I need tomorrow off and they were very nice about it and got someone to cover me, so I feel less guilty now LOL.
Did you get caught in the snow/sleet then? I hope it wasn't too bad!

Caryn - Forgot to say yesterday that I still haven't managed to sit down & post about The Guide yet! After what I thought was gonna be a fairly quiet weekend, we were really busy, and that's continued into this week. I really hope I get to it soon - looking forward to discussing it with you!

Amy - What's the Dollar Tree? Glad you enjoyed your shopping yesterday!

Tracy - Love the ActionRob pics! How sweet of him to help you pack for your day today. I laughed at your trying to put his trousers on over his shoes! (did you notice that he has huge feet?? or at least huge shoes LOL). You should have saw me and my aunt measuring him up for his kilt...it was most amusing :lol:
Haha, glad you like the word "knackered"! Do you guys say that over in the US? Unfortunately we still have tons more gardening to go, so will prolly be knackered for a while yet...it will be worth it in the end though!
My mom really enjoyed the movie too, and is looking forward to seeing part 2 at the cinema when it comes out.

JennJenn - Love the wallpaper!

Tammy - Thanks for the Photobucket update. I wonder what actually happened to Photobucket to make everything disappear?

Marielle - Your dream last night sounds very funny!! :lol:
I think we are getting nice weather till Friday, but not sure about the weekend. Are you on holiday from work Good Friday & Easter Monday? My company doesn't recognise bank holidays (apart from Christmas & New Year) so I will be at work :(

Dawn - Glad you had an awesome time & got to see Rob! YAY! I am on Facebook...which name did you want us to friend? LOL.


I won't have time tonight to watch any of the tv shows (online of course LOL) but I hope you will all let me know about it! I will try and catch it on youtube soon! :)

Anyways, I'm off. Catch you later!

Goooooood Morning Halfway House.
I just drank a large code red Mountain Dew so I am a little hyper this morning. As Mr. Krocker said on Fairy Odd Parents: "I'm going to run a marathon." I watch too much cartoons. I hope to leave work early enough to watch Rob on Ellen. I loved it last time he was on. Ellen played a game with an audience member called "Patting Pattinson." She blindfolded the helpless female and the female had to pat down three guys, one of them being Rob. Poor woman got it wrong, but just to say that she was blindfolded while touching Rob....that speaks for itself.

Marielle - Loved that you dreamed about us. Question: When you dreamed that Rob was a cop, did he use the handcuffs on you? :D In the US, at least for my family, we traditionally go to Easter Service in the morning and then do the Easter baskets for the kids after church. For Easter baskets, my boys get a chocolate bunny, and some toys. The one thing I refuse to put in their baskets are marshmellow peeps. They are the most disgusting candy ever invented. I am charging up my phone right now so I can read your fanfiction.

Tammy - Thanks for the update about the banners and photobucket. It will get fixed eventually, so no worries here.

JennJenn - Beautiful wallpaper.

Caryn -

You make me want to remodel my kitchen.

Jaclyn - The Dollar Tree is a big store where everything is a dollar. They have everything from bath pruducts, hygene, groceries (although somethings that they consider food is questionable), kitchenwear, party supplies, and toys. I spent around $15 and loaded up their baskets.

Tracy - I loved the ActionRob pics. I could imagine his kilt flying up in the wind. I think the gift certificate to hubs makes a wonderful Easter gift. Before me and my hubs had kids, us and a few friends went bar-hopping on Easter weekend in Mexico. Talk about sac-religious. :o :twisted: But we had fun and we were together.

Tracy - Tonsie - Rachel - Please be as careful as you can during this storm season. You guys talk about high-mile an hour winds, storms, and tornadoes really has me worried. What do you do when a storm hits? We don't have anything like that in the desert. We are lucky to get an inch of rain all year.

I guess I better go to work now. Everyone have a good Wednesday.

Hey girls…

Just an evening visit…I’m alone at the moment, bf is out with colleagues.

I told you all about maybe wanting to find a new job, so I updated my cv’s online last week just to see if there were nice offers…well today they called already, they want to see me for a possible manager job at a small company… how cool is that… but then again I’m not sure if I’m going to the interview, a bit apprehensive about it all…

JennJenn, my mom isn’t doing really well, she still has a lot of pain but she try’s to get in shape for the upcoming surgery. Still we had hoped it would happen this month but that is not happening as she has an appointment before that with an other doc…

Tracy, from what I know Kris didn’t get the snow white part, sadly because I really had hoped she would but the daughter of Collins is getting the part, she is playing in the pup’s new movie…
No, I can’t find BD wedding news, it’s like they haven’t shot it, which is ridiculous… I think Summit stepped up the protection of their set and material a bit after the leak…but from what I heard it was the last scene filmed in Vancouver, maybe Caryn’s knows more…

Caryn, I agree, I couldn’t even do that… although I hate the role Taylor plays and I love to refer to him as the pup and I don’t really like his acting, I would never be able to burn him down for something private. Actually I love to follow who he is dating because it’s so damn cute, especially when it we Tay2… but there isn’t a fiber in my body which could think of burning somebody down like that…
Underwear malfunction????? Dang I can’t see Ellen tonight… :banghead:

Dawn, I’m going to hunt you down on FB….that’s for sure… ;) love to see the pics..
I’m happy you had a good time…

Jaclyn, that’s absolutely ridiculous, you UK girls have more bank holidays as any one in the world…I just can’t imagine you not having Monday off… Good Friday I have to work, it’s not a national holiday but second Easter day is…so Monday I’m bathing in sunlight…
Still it’s really weird that we get it off anyway…the government always talks about keeping religion separated but still we get the Christian celebrations off, I’m campaigning for having the Muslim and Hindi and Jewish and all other religion celebrated days to be a national holiday. :clap:

Amy, you are a girl to my heart…Smut is penetrating your mind deeply…Handcuffs hihihi :twisted: . Ow the image….but sadly no. In my dream back than I was stopped by two cops one male, one female. The guy walked up and told me I was speeding. It was than that I recognized him… I don’t know the details but I remember flirting saved the day…
Ahh, so you buy sweets and small things…dang I would have loved to have a new excuse to go shopping…we got something from my boss for Easter today, a big chocolate egg filled with small praline eggs…my bf got a two pound weighing chocolate bunny… ( I WAS DIETING)…

Well, I’m going to enjoy the peace and silence to do some writing…
These violent delights, have violent endings...Like fire and gunpowder, they consume what they kiss

Hello folks,

Just thought I'd swing by. I just stuffed myself with a creme egg (do you guys get that?) and some crisps and now I am full to the brim LOL.

Amy - Haha, I can quote a bunch of cartoons too, and often repeat their catch phrases when the time suits. I blame my necies & nephews, but secretly I quite enjoy a couple of the programmes ;)
Ah, we have a similar chain of shops here too, where everything costs a pound. Sometimes you can get good stuff, but other times it is full of rubbish stuff! :lol:
Ok new question: what are marshmallow peeps? LOL.

Marielle - That's great about the interview for a new job!! I defo think you should go to it, even if you don't know if you would like the job, just to get experience in the interview. Well done!!
Haha, I dunno if we have more bank holidays than other folk? Well anyways, I don't get them since my company doesn't recognise them :( LOL. A lot of my friends are off though, and it is most unfair! :lol: In fact, people are off thie Friday-Monday for Easter, the following Friday for the Royal wedding, then the Monday for May Day. Then another Monday for the Queen's birthday or something at the end of May. They will never be at work! :P :lol:
I hope your writing went well :)

Susie & Fi Hi there - I see you both!


Anyways, I better go. Take care everyone! Bye!
