If you frequent Robmusement, you know that the park owner runs a Rob-exclusive theme park over there with lots of rules about respecting Rob or else you will be Ejected From the Park Without Refund. Once you get to know Jeanette, the park owner, you realize that she talks about Rob being BIG....errr, wait a minute I mean, she talks BIG about Rob. She serves up a great mix of wit and humor in her posts, but she also offers a big service for the rest of us. Every Saturday she posts a "Best of Week" pulling out all the highlights from the Rob related happenings and choosing her favorite blog posts. On Sundays she gives out great fanfiction recommendations for one shots!
And while she may claim it is all about Rob all the time, it's more than that. She manages to weave her Robsession with her friendships together often. It is frequently with kindness and no hesitation that she does something for her friends whether it is find them a particular picture (her Rob library wall-to-ceiling and wall-to-wall with 3 ladders), direct them to a particular video, track down a .gif, make them a banner for their fanfiction story, recruit them for various fun park activities, sharing her knowlege of computer software, or even throw them an online birthday party! She even makes banners for one shot stories she recommends, whether the authors of said one shots realize or not.
Here's a look back at some of the special things Jeanette has done for me this past year that I am so appreciative of!
Back in the early days of my blog, she let me borrow this picture I had seen on her blog.
And next thing I knew she was asking me to participate in her upcoming 120 Reasons to Love Rob post on her blog. I was really surprised by the invite because I was so new. And I sent her this email:
Love your devotion to Rob! I have no photoshop skills (yet!) but ideas hit me randomly so if you ever want to collaborate with me let me know and I'd pitch ya an idea. -TT
Jeanette responded, "So glad you'll help" regarding her post.
There was no mention of ever wanting to collaborate with me. I was not deterred. I knew that
"love for Rob conquers all"
"love for Rob conquers all"
Next thing I knew I was part of the Robpalooza in May better known as
for which she made this banner!
Then, in July she asked if I would do a guest post for her blog where I had to link Rob to a few special crazy holidays. I mean it was no easy task connecting Rob to National Junk Food Day but it was well worth it, because Robmusement rewarded me by making me this banner!
So pretty and peaceful!!! And it is a reminder to me everyday of what was on Rob's mind this day.
You can see this larger than life on my tumblr account!
But the thing with Jeanette is she's not just kind, she is also gracious as seen in her blog anniversary post here from August.
In this post she gave me a nod and said she liked brainstorming with me. Up until that day I always assumed I was bothering her with my emails.
Then Halloween came and Jeanette made this for everyone!
Isn't that cool?
Then she encouraged me to write a one shot and acted as my beta. She didn't just stop there, then she made this f*cktastic banner!!!
Really, I think this is one of the best things she made all year!!!
She made me a cool signature picture--as seen at the bottom of this post.
In October we did all had fun celebrating World Smile Day that
More beautiful artwork
Next up was my birthday!
She came up with a Twilight trivia game for me and all of us to do--How perfect was that?
And she made me a couple of special cards:
The icing on the cake is this one though, because friends or not, if I'm standing in the way of her and Rob, I'm getting pushed in front of a bus.
And at the close of the year, she made this.
Nothing like adding Rob into the Holiday Magic!!!
Robmusement just posted a week's worth of Best of Year posts you can get to by clicking here. My favorite was her picspam she did matching up to some of her favorite lines Rob said this year. She didn't just do 10 of these or 20...she made 35 of them!!! Here are some of my favorites:

Jeanette does even more than most of us realize.
You can sometimes find her posting at Thinking of Rob.
Plus she has a Robmusement tumbler
and does Memoirs of a Robmance, which are short little love notes to Rob.
