What the hell happened to Cedric Diggory?!
Ok, ok...I'm not really one of those fan girls. You know the one's I'm talking about...screaming, pulling at their hair, jumping up and down...nope. I haven't been one of those since 1989 when NKOTB ruled my every waking moment. Ahhh...Joey....
Anyway, normally this blog is reserved for only shop, Etsy, and soapy related things, but today, I thought I'd blog about something (erm...someome) a bit different.
I don't think it's ever been a secret that I love Twilight. I picked the books up one morning while in Target with my boyfriend, started reading the first one in the car on the way home, and didn't put the sucker down until I was done with it. Honest. I even took it with me to the loo. And when I finished Twilight, I immediately moved to New Moon...etc etc. One weekend and 4 novels later, I was a 30 year old woman pining over a fictional 109 year old teenage sparkly vegetarian vampire. Sounds outlandish, I know.
I was pretty excited when the movie Twilight came out, though I was a bit surprised when I heard they chose Cedric Freaking Diggory to play Edward. C'mon, man! This is Edward Fucking Cullen! Yes, I realize that Edward is really only 17, but whomever played him had to present an air of sophistication and wisdom, maturity way beyond 17 years. Did they really think Cedric was the boy for this?
I had to investigate. Imagine my surprise when I did some sly googling and realized little Cedric Diggory had grown up. Grown into a very surprising yummilicious Robert Pattinson....Still, at the time, I didn't go all fan girl. He was some little 21-22 year old actor (and still Cedric Diggory in my mind) and I was 30 years old. Fast forward about a year. New Moon is just about to be released and I come across this:
I immediately drooled. No really, I think I felt some dribble out. I wiped the corner of my mouth, right clicked that mutha and saved it to my desktop...all the while thinking in the back of my head,
You know when you fan girled all over NKOTB he was in diapers...you know this, right, Misty?
Shut up. I'm not going out and buying Tiger Beat so I can plaster my bedroom walls with him, am I?
Nope. Do you think he even knows who NKOTB is? He wasn't even born when they got together.
Shut up. He's legal.
Ok, Mrs. Robinson.
It took me a while, but I think over the last 6 months, I've become comfortable viewing Mr. Pattinson as nothing more than eye candy. Very young eye candy. Legal eye candy. Ok, ok...so I downloaded some Johnny Depp, too...just to raise the age median.
The point of this entire pointless post (other than an excuse to stare at Robert Pattinson), is to admit to one of my guilty (and I do mean guitly) pleasures. It begs the question, though...what is your guilty pleasure?
I'll leave you with one more photograph of a very grown up Cedric Diggory. Admit it...even with the bib, he's delicious.
