Rob and Kristen- Tome For The Holidays.

I hope the determined lady behind Rob isn't a FOAMER! (I think she might be!)

So quiet.
Good.
Bad.
Kinda boring.

I got a bit of shit about my epic date...
(bit of shit... I like it)
Not that I couldn't see where it was going.
As soon as you write about a specific time/date
People really want to attach something big to it.
I wrote a date.
I said Epic.
And it went from there.
I never said it was an epic Rob/Kristen date.
But... 
That's what ended up being talked about.
Engagement announcement.
Wedding date.

It was a fascinating study on Newton's Law.
It was the quote I put in the beginning of yesterdays post.

"To every action there is always an equal and opposite reaction."
 
Ain't that the truth?
I am a big fan of reaction.
(You may or may not have guessed that reading my blog)
I love watching how people react to rumors...
or even just everyday news.
The reaction is always more interesting than the action.

Was I being cryptic?
Most definitely.
I tend to do that with the "this post was brought to you by" part.
Sometimes I take a dig at someone who annoyed me.
Sometimes I give a shout out to someone I care about.
I don't usually name names...
And I rarely give details.
But if I'm doing any poking and pushing...
You can guarantee it will be for the Foamers benefit.
Which in turn gives me a reaction.
Which brings us back to the beginning.
See how that works?
:)

I don't know why... but Rob and Tom make me smile.

So.
What do we think is going on for Christmas?
Let's think about it.
Rob and Kristen head over to London.
Simple.
Do they go together?
Will Rob go over first and will Kristen follow after the 25th?
Or will they travel together?
Last year we didn't know Kristen was there until the
picture with the little girl came out.
Is that why they travel separately?
It's easier and less of a hassle to travel apart.
Will we see more pictures of Rob/Kristen/Tom in IOW?
Who knows.
I would be guessing Mr. Sturridge is going home for Christmas as well.
Tome is where the heart is, after all.

What happens (Not IF) WHEN Rob and Kristen are spotted
together sometime over the holidays in the UK?
Will Foam be spewed everywhere?
Will the classic excuses be thrown out there again?

"I go to London with male friends for the holidays ALL the time!"
"It doesn't mean anything if Tom is there."
"Kristen has no friends, Rob just feels sorry for her"
"PR! PR! If they show up together its PR!"

You know the drill.
Same tired excuses that we have heard for years now.
Yet.
Robert and Kristen continue to be together.
Again.
 
I look forward to the REACTIONS.
;)

MY GOD SHE IS GORGEOUS.
I just found this picture on Google.
JFC.
Kristen is beyond beautiful.
BEYOND.
I don't really have anything to add to that.
Well.. maybe one or two other things.

I love Kristen Stewart.
I do.
And no, she doesn't need me to defend her.
I'm sure she doesn't give a shit.
But I'm going to anyway.
Because I want to.
And because I adore Robert Pattinson
who so very obviously adores Kristen
I just want them to be happy.
And I think they are.


Think about how happy they will be in London for the Holidays.
Together.
As always.

This post is brought to you by the letter *T*

I miss my Tome.
I'm feeling a bit Tome-sick...

Bye for now.

yashira said...

you really are an asshole Rose seriously , you need some help this blog thing has made u into an ass on a power trip , so just stop, no wonder the nonstens keep trashing us , some shippers are insane and you just proved your one of them

scubabelvoir said...

Happy, wonderful holidays to you, Rose! I usually just read and smile, but today I had to tell you how much I love what you say about Rob and Kris and Tom.

SueBee said...

Yes, I watched Pirate Radio again!

Tom is still adorable!


(Random comment)

Honey said...

If Kristen shows up alongside Tom (and Rob) what are you going to say then? Just friends? Why does everyone think it's just Tom's job to just tag along on their "little dates?" He does have a life and it doesn't evolve around Rob. For all you know, he isn't even friends with Rob anymore. LOL last time I checked he hasn't been seen hanging out with him in a long time. And word is he has swapped Rob for Andrew Garfield. Wise choice.

SueBee said...

Soooooo, what does everyone think
about having an epic cocktail recipe day?


Hugs to my friends.

SueBee said...

Honey,

Last time you checked? You are clueless.

Penny Lane said...

Our age knows nothing but reaction, and leaps from one extreme to another.
Reinhold Niebuhr

I think that pretty much says it all.

Honey,
Why don't you have a cookie? It might make you feel better.

our hearts always show us the way to get home

Cate said...

Susan,

I'm all for an epic cocktail event as long as we get to sample while we are epicing (new word?).

I sent you *hugs* on the last post so *hugs* again in case you missed them :D

Hi to Super too from the last post!

Kay said...

Rose - I am sorry that you get so much shit from all of the <___________> people out there. (Please fill in the blank with your preferred expletive.) I, for one, LOVE your blog and being able to come here to Roseland. Thank you!!

(Gorgeous pictures today, by the way.)

Susan - Epic cocktail day sounds like a great idea. :)

Rose said...

Golly Gee Yashira- thanks for proving my action/reaction point.
Excellent example.

You come to my blog and read it. I don't chase you down and force you to do it. It's real simple.
Don't.

Kami said...

Yashira shut the fuck up, you know nothing about Rose, this blog and you have nothing to say we want to hear so shut the fuck up

Kami said...

Dear Syd,

I feel that we have left you out of our Christmas event and that is not fair since you have become such a huge part of Roseland. A few of us have felt for a while that we should give you a special one of a kind gift.

Cookie recipes are wonderful if someone is a cook, however since you do not cook, then giving you cookie recipes is wasted and not fair to you.

We have thought long and hard about what would be an appropriate gift for someone as talented and wonderful as you, and each time we came up with an option something made us change our minds.

Yesterday after the Epic post you and Smitty did for Rose, some of us thought a Song dedication might be in order, however none of us is anywhere as talented as DK in that area of expertise and she had already posted the perfect song to you and Smitty for mentioning her in the poem. So...what was left to us?

I lay awake last night thinking, nothing came to mind until about 3 AM when I sat up in bed and said "TA DA!!!!!!! I think I have it!"

Not wanting to give away too many details and spoil your surprise, let's just say that if we can get a Basket that large through Customs then you should expect a "Special" Christmas gift to arrive on your doorstep soon. When it is opened...I hope you remember the work that went into the planning of this surprise and say "TA DA! What a one of a kind, unique, ageless...gift" We all hope that you enjoy this gift with a drink, might we suggest a Martini with extra olives? It is a gift that is sure to make you wish...and say..."There's no place like Tome" =)

Kami said...

Susan here's my new favorite drink

Peppermint Stinger:

1 1/2 oz Brandy
1 1/2 oz White Creme De Menthe
splash of peppermint Schnapps

Shake well with ice, pour into martini glass serve with peppermint stick for garnish

Yashira,

People like YOU give us sane fans a bad name. Period. Chew on that babe. As usual you all reading into EVERYTHING, decoding things that are not your business, having a "time line" on someone's life. THAT is sick, THAT is no boundaries. I love and support Rob and Kristen myself, but I know my boundaries and if I were them, I would be very upset if supposble fans watched my life under a microscope, Like the dam CIA and IMO that is pretty much in the SAME class as the haters.

Please, leave Rose alone okay? The girl has enough BS thrown at her. She doesn't have to check with you when she posts it's not her fault you all are under another fantasy impression, Make assumptions nor does she need to your approval on anything. If you do not like this blog, do not read it. Easy.

Rose,

I know you dont need me to stick up for you, but my "reaction" is OK I hope? ;)

deb said...

Honey and yashira why dont you 2 get a room you can see you would be good for each other hahaha NOW to better things Im happy to think Rob and Kristen well be together AND WHY NOT you do spend time and HOLIDAYS together with the one you love when you can GOOD POST TODAY ROSE LOV YA. and I do hope oue TOM is there to be with HIS FRIENDS and love ones . DEB.

breathless2009 said...

I really love the idea of R/K together in London for the hollydays, but I know they will have a short break for hollydays, so may be K will stay in LA with her family, she will want to stay with them for sure, and R will want to be with his family too. So may be they will spend the hollydays apart this year, that is OK, because they will be together soon enough. Happy Cristmas to you your family Rose!!! :)

beaculen said...

Rose, great post as always,love this pics. Yashira, your an idiot why come to a blog you hate? Dumb! Honey...I think you meant "revolve" not"evolve" get it right if your gonna go on another rant.Dumbass.Better yet just go away, trust me no one here will miss you.

Birdie said...

Rose,
When I first discovered Twilight and Rob, I floated around to different sites. I stumbled on your blog and what I loved about it was how you defended Kristen. So I just quit going to those other places. I just didn't want to hear the crap. I love that you still defend her. That picture of Kristen is absolutely stunning!
Thank you for the translation of your quote. Yashira, thank you for the demonstration of how it works.
How fortunate for us that you have incredible stamina, Rose. Appreciate all you do!

Hi, Rose! Hi, Roseland (the sane ones) I hope are all having a great day!

No matter where Rob and Kristen choose to spend their christmas hollidays, I hope they will be happy.


Yashira, you just prove Rose's point.

Honey, STFU, you know NOTHING ABOUT ANYTHING.

katy said...

SueBee, an epic cocktail recipe day, it's a great idea! and when that would be?

Smitty said...

Hi Everyone,

Glad you liked the poem but I did almost none of it--it was really more Syd and I just tried to edit it a bit. The recipes look great--cant wait to try some.

Hope everyone is good and enjoying their holidays.

Tracy said...

Because it wouldn't be the holidays without some kind of gingerbread :)

It's Martha Stewart's recipe... so if you're not growing your own cacao tree in your back yard, and making your own chocolate, you're screwed. hehehe.. just kidding. But some of her recipes are seriously crazy.

Here goes!

Chewy Chocolate-Gingerbread Cookies

Ingredients

7 ounces best-quality semisweet chocolate
1 1/2 cups plus 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
1 1/4 teaspoons ground ginger
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 tablespoon unsweetened Dutch-process cocoa powder
8 tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted butter
1 tablespoon freshly grated ginger
1/2 cup dark-brown sugar, packed
1/4 cup unsulfured molasses
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 cup granulated sugar

Directions

1. Line two baking sheets with parchment. Chop chocolate into 1/4-inch chunks; set aside. In a medium bowl, sift together flour, ground ginger, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, and cocoa.

2. In the bowl of an electric mixer, fitted with the paddle attachment, beat butter and grated ginger until whitened, about 4 minutes. Add brown sugar; beat until combined. Add molasses; beat until combined.

3. In a small bowl, dissolve baking soda in 1 1/2 teaspoons boiling water. Beat half of flour mixture into butter mixture. Beat in baking-soda mixture, then remaining half of flour mixture. Mix in chocolate; turn out onto a piece of plastic wrap. Pat dough out to about 1 inch thick; seal with wrap; refrigerate until firm, 2 hours or more.

4. Heat oven to 325 degrees. Roll dough into 1 1/2- inch balls; place 2 inches apart on baking sheets. Refrigerate 20 minutes. Roll in granulated sugar. Bake until the surfaces crack slightly, 10 to 12 minutes. Let cool 5 minutes; transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

OMG...that photo of Kristen is how I want to see her in BD 2...damn she is so gorgeous!!!!


Loving the thought of the two lovebirds dashing off to London for Christmas...where else would they be but TOGETHER!!!!

Melinda said...

Hey Roseland friends....hope everyone is having a great day/night so far.

Rose- Thank goodness you have the ability to shrug off the BS that is flung at you all the time. Looking at you Yashira.


Susan- love the epic cocktail exchange idea. Let us know when that starts.


Smitty- so I was at the mall last night and saw a "nuns having fun" wall calendar and thought of you for some reason. (I know totally random)

Super RN Gas Passer said...

ROSE and ROSELANDERS... Ive got to a xmas party in a bit but I just wanted to say I really love that pic of Kristen...I cant wait to see her all decked out as Bella the Vamp!!!! Yeah Rose, when a woman can look great with or without makeup, that is saying alot.

The Wiz of Oz is standing out in the blog today Rose..."aint that the truth" Doesnt the Scarecrow say "aint it the truth, aint it the truth" and then Dorothy "theres no place like home..tome of course."" heh. Love it! There is all kinds of relevance in the Wiz of Oz and I think you have mentioned other things... unfortunately I cant think...maybe there was a reference to the one of the Witches in a previous post? heh


Good night everybody!

olivia said...

Thank you Rose for the beautiful words and pictures.
Kristen is truly stunning, a natural beauty, and the guys are absofreakinglutely handsome. (Love that word from RM.)

Thank you again Smitty and Syd for the very finely composed poetry yesterday. So enjoyed it, especially the touch at the end. : )

Rose, I bookmarked this blog site the day that I ran across it, on November 22, 2009;
the title you gave that day's blog post was...

"Is Kristen Spending Christmas in London?"

You wrote,

"It will be most interesting to see
where Kristen and Rob turn up in the future...
Together."

Empasis....on ....."Together"!

Well, we have seen plenty.
They have turned up so many places around the world......"together". Couples do that! They love to be "together". They love to be with family, friends, and celebrate..."together".
May the upcoming holiday time be a blessed, happy, private time for them "together" and also may they have plenty of quality time with their family and friends out of the eye of the prying media.

Hugs to y'all!
BBL after supper.

Rhonda said...

Rose,

Thank you for continuing to post for us. I'm so sorry that you get some of the nasty comments that you do.It's inappropriate and undeserved..so I thank you again for all that you do :)

The picture of Kristen..STUNNING!!
She is unbelievably beautiful.

Hope everyone is having a great saturday!

DreamerKind said...

Happy day, Roselanders!

Hope your holiday season is brightly burning.


To my Snowpals around the world:

(Dashing Through The Snow)
Jingle Bells

Warren Woods-Tower Michigan Choir:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jCr4ZQ-7eMo

Dashing through the snow
In a one horse open sleigh
O'er the fields we go
Laughing all the way

Bells on bob tails ring
Making spirits bright
What fun it is to laugh and sing
A sleighing song tonight

Oh, jingle bells, jingle bells
Jingle all the way
Oh, what fun it is to ride
In a one horse open sleigh

A day or two ago
I thought I'd take a ride
And soon Miss Fanny Bright
Was seated by my side

The horse was lean and lank
Misfortune seemed his lot
We got into a drifted bank
And then we got upsot

Jingle bells, jingle bells
Jingle all the way
Oh, what fun it is to ride
In a one horse open sleigh

Jingle bells, jingle bells
Jingle all the way
Oh, what fun it is to ride
In a one horse open sleigh

Thank you/volleysue

Vangie said...

is Yashira, new? where do these asses come from,if you do not like rob fine, and since this is a rob and kristen, blog, you do not visit it.

angelica1 said...

SueBee - An epic cocktail day sounds just the thing after endless Christmas shopping,I'll have to think which is my favourite....

Yashira - What Smitty said! Rose has clearly touched a nerve somewhere to provoke that reaction. She's good at that, it's why we love her :)

Honey - Buy a kindle or an xbox or something, you need a life, cupcake.


Hi Smitty, hope you're well :)

Roger said...

I love the way Smitty defends Rose. I wonder if she wipes her ass for her too??

Honey said...

Kami said...

Honey...meet Roger...our troll..Roger meet Honey...our...resident nut job...feel free to kill each other.


Oh also feel free to post any cookie recipes you might have...yes...yes.. I know we're all fat...all of that insulting stuff...but feel free anyway.

Freddie said...

Honey, I'm trying to understand your motives. Are you here because you honestly believe what you are saying and you feel the need to try and save us from our “delusions”? Or are you here just to cause trouble and stir the pot ? The thing is see….you’re not achieving your goal, whatever it is. Nothing you say will sway anyones opinions here – because your arguments are generally ill-conceived and illogical. At the same time, you’re not being successful at stirring the pot – people just look to you for comic relief – that’s all. So, why persist? Really??

angelica1 said...

Freddie - You're absolutely right actually.I do actually burst out laughing when I read one of Honey's idiotic posts.

Kami - I don't know why Honey and "Roger" don't just start their own blog, after they leave us some delicious cookie recipes of course :)

olivia said...

Roger ( AKA Terry, Darlene, Wendy, Hannibelle, and many more that I may not remember)....
Please stop with the ugliness. Thank you.

Annie said...

Honey and Roger regurgitate the same bullshit. It's beyond old at this point.

Roger said...

I like cookies

Freddie said...

Hi Angelica – that’s a nice idea – they could share recipes. Although I’m afraid their cookies might leave a bitter taste.

Hi Olivia, Kami and everyone else I may have missed.

Freddie

Rhonda said...

Hi Freddie,

Your exactly right. It is comical..to the point of being downright ridiculous!

Rhonda

Roger said...

Okay Rose come on out since you are deleting things. Remember how we bonded over penis hat??

Freddie said...

Hey Rhonda,
Hope you're having a great evening.

Did I remember you saying that you are from Tennessee? (my apologies if I have that wrong). Are you guys having bad weather too?

Freddie

Kami said...

Angelica I know...I was hoping for a good ole fashioned Troll kind of Christmas cookie, or a Honey cookie...but alas...no recipes to leave us...just same ole same ole.

Rhonda said...

Yes the weather here in TN is definitely taking a turn for the worst! What about you?

olivia said...

Two more recipes that are no bake for those who want something very easy, but yummy.

Rum Yums
Yield: approx. 3 dozen

2 cups crushed vanilla wafers
(put them into a large zip lock bag and use your rolling pin to crush)
2 cups confectioners' sugar
1 cup very finely chopped pecans
4 tablespoons cocoa
4 tablespoons light corn syrup
1/4 cup rum
1 cup granulated sugar

In a large bowl combine crushed wafers, confectioners' sugar, pecans, cocoa, corn syrup and rum. Shape into small balls. Roll in granulated sugar. Eat and enjoy!
Of course you can substitute bourbon or any unsweet spirit instead of the rum.


No-Bake Apricot Coconut Yummies
Yield: approx. 4 dozen

1 1/2 cups dried apricots, ground in food grinder
2 cups shredded coconut
2/3 cup sweetened condensed milk
3/4 cup chopped pecans (optional, but I put pecans in almost everything)
Confectioners' sugar

Combine apricots, coconut, milk and pecans. Blend until well mixed. Shape into small balls and roll in confectioners' sugar; refrigerate until firm.

Tomorrow I'll share:
Melters and also Cashew Potato Chip Cookies : )

Penny Lane said...

Hi all,

Is Roger sharing cookie recipes? Will they be very fattening?

Kami said...

Alright all you Auburn fans Congratulations on your QB winning the Heisman Trophy!!

WDE!!!!!!

cookies sound wonderful Olivia

olivia said...

Hi Freddie, thank you for the greeting!

Kami said...

PL I don't know but I'm all aflutter with the thought that we might soon have troll cookies...see I put my special AVI up for ya Rog.

Kami said...

PL I don't know but I'm all aflutter with the thought that we might soon have troll cookies...see I put my special AVI up for ya Rog.

Penny Lane said...

Kami,

Troll cookies would be soooo cute. They'd have those big noses and beady eyes and those smiles with the gaps in the teeth.

Kami said...

LOL and the hair...can't forget that hair

Penny Lane said...

The hair was always the best part. What would a troll cookie hair be? Coconut, chow mein noodles, licorice?

Tracy said...

HAPPY TROLL COOKIES

3/4 c. firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 c. sugar
1/2 c. butter, softened
1/2 c. peanut butter
1 tsp. vanilla
1 egg
1 c. rolled oats
3/4 c. flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 c. M&M'S®
1/2 c. chopped pecans

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease cookie sheets. In large bowl beat brown sugar, sugar, butter, peanut butter, vanilla and egg until light and fluffy. Add rolled oats; mix well. Add flour and baking soda; mix well. Stir in chocolate chips, M&M'S® and pecans; mix well.

Place by teaspoonfuls on greased cookie sheets, flatten slightly. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-15 minutes or until light golden brown. Cool 2-3 minutes; remove from cookie sheets. Yield 3 dozen cookies.

;)

angelica1 said...

Penny - Would we have to sit under a bridge to eat them?

Kami said...

I say we use licorice but the red not the black...


Nice Tracy

Penny Lane said...

I thought that said Happy Trail Cookies...LOL.

That might be some interesting eating.

Annie said...

Don't forget green.....Lots of green sprinkles because our trolls are green with envy!

Kami said...

Penny LOL

Freddie said...

Rhonda - I’m actually from “the great white north” – Canada. Funny thing is that my area doesn’t have any snow yet. Buffalo to the south of us got socked under, and if you go 45 minutes north of where I am, they have a foot of snow. My area sits in a nice little bubble that tends to have better weather. Fine with me.

Kami – were you hoping for "Troll House" cookies??

Kami said...

Green is a good idea but I say we use Yellow instead to match the stripe down their backs.

Kami said...

Freddie lol of course

Kay said...

LOL! You guys are great! :D

Penny Lane said...

Angelica,

Help me here. When the troll is trolling under the bridge who is on the bridge? I forget, really.

Kami said...

I'm not Angelica but I know...I know...ooo ooo call on me Miss Penny....

When the troll is under the bridge...the BILLY GOAT is on it..Oooo I see now...Honey is the Billy Goat

Annie said...

I like the idea of yellow.....It equates to cowardice!

Rhonda said...

Freddie,

I've never been to Canada but it is on my list of places to visit. My uncle used to go hunting there every year and the pictures I've seen are beautiful.
I love snow but we don't deal with it all that well around here.

And thank you I am having a great evening. I finished my Christmas shopping today!!

Penny Lane said...

Roger,

Your recipe at least has to rhyme. Come on, you can do better.

Kami said...

Sorry Roger, all out of those ingredients. Used em earlier..how else can we explain Honey?

Notice we're all playing nicely with you tonight please don't spoil it.

Kami said...

cause I could have gone another way...but the Christmas spirit and all of that...play nicely please

Penny Lane said...

Kami,

I think Honey is the reconnaissance
troll. She's the troll that patrols.

Roger said...

Penny my rhyme got deleted. See my tears?

Kami said...

yep Honey is the goat

Penny Lane said...

Kami,

I thought the 3 Billy Goats were the good guys and the trolls were the bad guys. So has Honey been promoted?

angelica1 said...

Penny, Kami - The Billy Goats Gruff are on the bridge

angelica1 said...

Penny - The biggest Billy Goat Gruff drowned the Troll

Penny Lane said...

Angelica,

I think we need a Billy Goat Gruff to come and drown some more trolls.

Annie said...

I think the troll is already drowning hence the BS!

Penny Lane said...

We should really be more thoughtful. Holidays are really hard for people who have no one special in their lives and no one who cares about them. Statistics prove that people act out in frustration at this time. I think Roger maybe is experiencing that.

Kami said...

Yep Penny I had to promote Honey, compared to the Troll she's a breath of fresh air!

Kami said...

Yep it's hard to be an unloved Troll on the Holidays...tsk tsk..only thing to do on a Saturday night is to post bullshit on a blog...

yeah I'm here too...but I'm married.

Penny Lane said...

Angelica,

What is going on with the University fees over there? Is this going to affect international students do you know?

angelica1 said...

Penny - It's crazy, my teacher niece and I have been raging about this today.The possibility of increased tuition fees has come up before but it's looking inevitable now. I'm not sure how it would affect international students as I don't know whether they would have been given the concessions granted to UK students, I'd have to ask her.Whatever the government say though, it will affect kids from poorer families because even with student loans, her university education still cost me about £70,000, taking everything into acount.

Penny Lane said...

Angelica,

Higher education is becoming unattainable for everyone except the very wealthy or the poor over here. An education at a major public university costs about $100,000 when it's all said and done. At private universities it's probably double that. The poor get financial aid and scholarships but the middle class kids whose parents attempted to save for their education get no help.

Great post...short, sweet and to the point. :) Love that pic of Kristen...she looks beautiful.

Ladies, thank you for all the yummy cookie recipes! They look delicious and I'm going to try some out this week. It's supposed to get bad here again. Love the snow, but only when I don't have to go out in it!!

Have a good weekend everyone!! :)

bev said...

Wow another day of loser trolls acting like bad mannered two year olds. Go away and take your stink with you.

I love this blog and Rose is epic.

I also love cookies!!!

Haters you are so stupid, we do not need anymore proof from you.

How does the best bread pudding sound to anyone? The 15th?

OMG did you ladies see the new pics floating on twitter????

EPIC Rob, Kris, Papa and Mama Pattz from last xmas. Soooo Epic.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oZZSirka0-U&feature=related

The more I'm with you,
The more I can see;
My love is yours alone.

You came and captured
A heart that was free;
Now there's nothing
I can call my own.

Everything I have is yours;
you're part of me.
Everything I have is yours,
my destiny.

I would gladly give
the sun to you
If the sun were only mine.

I would gladly give
the earth to you
And the stars that shine.

Everything that I possess,
I offer you,
That my dream of happiness
come true.

I'd be happy just
to spend my life,
Waiting at your beck and call.

Everything I have is yours,
My life, my all.

(1947)

Thank you/direfranchement

Don't Lose Heart

Dan Fogelberg finds heart/listen:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FxB2jUErffU&feature=related

This life is heartless
and it's rarely just
Full of sad betrayals
and misplaced trust

And it can suck your spirit
just as dry as dust
And steal your soul
if you let it.

Oh, every life contains
its sorrows and pains
Its stormy weather
and its rough terrains

You watch me wrestle
with my length of chain
And smile so bravely
as you tell me.

Don't lose heart,
Don't lose heart
Though it feels
like yours will fall apart
Just remember when
the road gets dark
I will always be beside you.

I've spent my life
pursuing fortune and fame
Chasing rainbows
in a shadow game

And I'm not sure what I've lost
is worth the gain
Or why my soul remains so restless.

You've seen me stumble,
Lord, you've seen me fall.

You've shared my triumphs
and you've seen me crawl.
And when I think that
I could lose it all

You give me courage
and you tell me.

Don't lose heart,
Don't lose heart

Though it feels like
yours will fall apart
Just remember when
the road gets dark,

I will always be beside you.


Thank you/jfmm99

here's one for you.

Abba - Thank you for the music

I'm nothing special, in fact I'm a bit of a bore
If I tell a joke, you've probably heard it before
But I have a talent, a wonderful thing
'cause everyone listens when I start to sing
I'm so grateful and proud
All I want is to sing it out loud
So I say
Thank you for the music, the songs I'm singing
Thanks for all the joy they're bringing
Who can live without it, I ask in all honesty
What would life be?
Without a song or a dance what are we?
So I say thank you for the music
For giving it to me
Mother says I was a dancer before I could walk
She says I began to sing long before I could talk
And I've often wondered, how did it all start?
Who found out that nothing can capture a heart
Like a melody can?
Well, whoever it was, I'm a fan
I've been so lucky, I am the girl with golden hair
I wanna sing it out to everybody
What a joy, what a life, what a chance!

DreamerKind said...

@Gwen
Thank you so much, my dear!

That is a great song and it has just started playing, so I am listening to it right now.

ABBA was such a happy group and watching them so enjoyable.

How are you today?

gwen said...

DK
ha i think i need more sleep coz i'd been a sleepy head these past couple of days. Today im watching another korean movie, it cute and funny.

DreamerKind said...

Gwen
Good, get more rest.

I'm curious, does the movie have subtitles or do you understand Korean?

gwen said...

DK
It has subtitles.

Hey, where's the rest of the band?

DreamerKind said...

Probably tired from last night/this morning.

Birdie stayed much later than I did.

Bren booked earlier. It was a crazy, funny night.

DreamerKind said...

@Gwen
I'm actually thinking of going to bed early for me, and if it doesn't snow too much over night, go out and do some holiday shopping on Sunday.

gwen said...

DK
do enjoy your weekend. Shopping would be great. I'll pray that tom's weather would be fine so you can have a great weekend

DreamerKind said...

Gwen
Thanks again, and you rest when you need, too.

I'm going to put one more song on before I leave for the night.

DreamerKind said...

For Everyman

Jackson Browne dreaming/listen:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qr-hqAjdNrU

Everybody I talk to is ready to leave
With the light of the morning
They've seen the end coming down long enough to believe
That they've heard their last warning

Standing alone
Each has his own ticket in his hand
And as the evening descends
I sit thinking 'bout Everyman

Seems like I've always been looking for some other place
To get it together
Where with a few of my friends I could give up the race
And maybe find something better

But all my fine dreams
Well thought out schemes to gain the motherland
Have all eventually come down to waiting for Everyman

Waiting here for Everyman--
Make it on your own if you think you can
If you see somewhere to go I understand

Waiting here for Everyman--
Don't ask me if he'll show --
Baby I don't know

Make it on your own if you think you can
Somewhere later on you'll have to take a stand
Then you're going to need a hand

Everybody's just waiting to hear from the one
Who can give them the answers
And lead them back to that place in the warmth of the sun

Where sweet childhood still dances
Who'll come along
And hold out that strong and gentle father's hand?

Long ago I heard someone say something 'bout Everyman

Waiting here for Everyman--
Make it on your own if you think you can
If you see somewhere to go I understand

I'm not trying to tell you that I've seen the plan
Turn and walk away if you think I am--

But don't think too badly of one who's left holding sand
He's just another dreamer, dreaming 'bout Everyman

Thank you/stampbeugel

Good Morning! Roselanders!

DK I've always enjoyed the Dan. Fogelberg song. Thanks so much.

Finally got my Eclipse DVD yesterday. Still haven't had a chance to watch it. Also I think my laptop may have finally came. UPS left a note Friday. It required a signature and somehow my son and mother who were both home did not hear them. Found out UPS isn't open on Saturday. I'm Fedex and working 6 days a week now. Where is the justice? I just want my laptop, it's been 2 months!

Anyway sorry for the tirade. I needed to vent!

I'm gonna bake cookies today!
Everyone have a great day!

Linda

olivia said...

Good morning Rose and dear Roselanders, Smitty, Gruff and Syd,
This is a working weekend again, so I will peek back in this evening.

However, I do wish to mention that the thoughts for the day will be:
Twirl, twirl, twirl, twirl, twirl, twirl, twirl, twirl,
smile, smile, smile, smile, smile, smile, smile,
happy, happy, happy, happy, happy, happy.
(Private, we know...... but thank you for the lovely Christmas (holiday) gift!)

Life is good. Enjoy what you have every moment. Being able to be together with family at the holidays is such a blessed time. So happy and twirling that for many people, that can take place!

Hugs y'all!

Linda, so glad that the laptop is almost in your hands. That has been an unbelievable amount of turnaround time for the repair. Again, late congratulations on your anniversary. Thank you for the hard work you do with the deliveries and so much driving. We appreciate it! Especially during this time of the year when you are also one of the official North Pole elves.

OK, off to work!

Happy Sunday Roseland

I apologize for the lateness of this recipe..I just have not had time until now. If you want to serve this, you will be the hit of the party, I promise! A Paula Deen signature dessert from her restaurant Lady and Sons in Savannah, Georgia...QVC was selling one round cake for $40.00 each ..you can get 2 round cakes for probably $10.00 worth of ingredients!

GOOEY BUTTER CAKE...This can be baked in either a 9x12 baking pan or divided between 2 round cake pans..350/50 minutes...try not to overcook it..you want the center to be slightly gooey..lightly greased pans

CRUST..One pkg of yellow cake mix...1 egg...1 stick melted butter
(MIX AND PRESS INTO PREPARED CAKE PAN)
FILLING...1 8oz cream cheese softened...2 eggs...1 stick melted butter...1 tsp vanilla...1 16 oz box confectioners sugar...BEAT CR CHEESE UNTIL SMOOTH, ADD EGGS, VANILLA, ADD BUTTER TIL SMOOTH, ADD CONFECTIONERS SUGAR TIL SMOOTH
STIR IN FILLING OF YOUR CHOICE...THEN BAKE.

THIS IS THE FUN PART...my suggestion is add 7-8 oz of shredded coconut OR 1 20 oz can crushed pineapple to the filling OR you can use a chocolate cake mix then pour chocolate chips and nuts on top of the filling OR YOU COULD USE A CARROT CAKE MIX AND ADD CHOPPED NUTS AND CARROTS TO THE FILLING OR YOU COULD ADD A 15OZ CAN OF PUMPKIN TO THE FILLING ALONG WITH SOME CINNAMON AND NUTMEG!!!!!!!

There are no words to describe this cake...it is soooo goooood!!! ENJOY

jentoo said...

Good Morning Everyone!

I hope everyone is having a great weekend so far! I've missed Roseland the past few days. I was all excited about the cookie exchange...until I remembered that I'm in the middle of a calorie-counting situation...lol! (30 lbs gone so far!). Anyway, I just decided to keep busy with other things as reading yummy recipes wasn't really conducive to that plan during the last few days...which also happened to be my
regularly scheduled 'craving anything sweet' days;).

I'm all good now and enjoying scanning through all the recipes and looking forward to more. I'll take Christmas Eve and day off from counting calories and look forward to trying some of them.

Loved the poem from the other day, and of course, Rose, always love your posts:)

Hope everyone has a great Sunday!

Kami said...

Thanks for all of the recipes ladies...it's been fun copying them and deciding which I want to cook first.

Ok...I have debated back and forth all night long as to whether or not I was going to comment on something and I finally decided I would.

I had someone tell me recently that I should just "Die already" for something I supposedly did, it upset me that someone could feel that words I said that they didn't like was a reason I should just die.

To see someone else told to "Die", even though the person being told that is a fuckwit, and say nothing would be hypocritical of me.

Words when used as weapons can leave scars not only on the people who hear them but the people who say them.

Penny Lane said...

jentoo,

Congratulations on the 30 lbs, that is spectacular. I know you've been going through some trying times and to still be able to accomplish that is amazing. You deserve a little splurge on the day.

Kami,

That was very well said and, I think, needed. Sometimes our words get away from us when tied up in emotions and we don't realize the impact.

Annie said...

For months we've been trying to get a certain someone with mutiple moniker personality disorder to refrain from posting untrue filfth about someone on this blog, to no avail. NONE.

I have always believed that words once thrown out into the world cannot be taken back and one should try very hard to be gracious in disagreements BUT there are times when you you just can't.

People who willingly and joyfully I might add go about attempting to belittle and insult others to shure up their own insecurities need a good verbal blasting on occasion.

Althought it may have seemed harsh, I didn't have a problem with it. You don't like what is said at Rose's blog and you don't like her opinions, then you have several options available to you, the main one being don't come here..........It's very simple really.

Kami said...

Familiar with the troll. Nothing works with them.

Have no problem whatsoever with slapping the troll upside the head and all other people who bad mouth our friends..read my response to Yashira..Just saying.
Words are not cause for death wishes.

I understand why it was said to that person and I think the world of the person who made the die comment. They love their friends dearly and will defend them to the end. That is a wonderful and beautiful trait in such a wonderful and beautiful person.

However, to say when someone wished me dead for something I said, that a reaction like that over words was uncalled for and wrong, then to say nothing when it happens to someone I don't care for would make me a hypocrite.

DreamerKind said...

@Rose
I'm gradually sweeping the cobwebs out of my brain and having some small success, at a new way of looking and thinking about life, without them.
(Feeling the new clarity?)

Sorry, I didn't comment on this blog post yesterday, but the cobs were too tightly webbed then.

Reactions, and counter reactions all lead to whatever we make of them. Touche, Rose!

I choose Rose's way of reacting, with laughter, angst, and a touch of bedevilment thrown into the mix-mash.

In so many more words, I loved this post and I give it a 10 for danceability!

DK

jentoo said...

I Will Remember You

Sarah McLachlan's present to us:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nSz16ngdsG0

I will remember you
Will you remember me?
Don't let your life pass you by
Weep not for the memories

Remember the good times that we had?
I let them slip away from us when things got bad
How clearly I first saw you smilin' in the sun
Wanna feel your warmth upon me,
I wanna be the one

I will remember you
Will you remember me?
Don't let your life pass you by
Weep not for the memories

I'm so tired but I can't sleep
Standin' on the edge of something much too deep
It's funny how we feel so much
but we cannot say a word
We are screaming inside,
but we can't be heard

But I will remember you
Will you remember me?
Don't let your life pass you by
Weep not for the memories

I'm so afraid to love you,
but more afraid to lose
Clinging to a past that doesn't let me choose

Once there was a darkness,
deep and endless night
You gave me everything you had,
Oh you gave me light

And I will remember you
Will you remember me?
Don't let your life pass you by
Weep not for the memories

And I will remember you
Will you remember me?
Don't let your life pass you by
Weep not for the memories

Thank you/sarahmclachlanfan

DreamerKind said...

@jentoo
You've made my day with the smile comment, for I live each day in anticipation of someone doing, just that! :)

Happy holidays to you, and from what I read in your comments earlier; you certainly have the true spirit!

In honor of the snow :) Some of us have gotten a LOT of snow, some of us just a little..

It's still snowing here, and I'm loving it.. but that's because I'm in my house with a warm cozy fire going.

Snow Cookies

Ingredients
1 cup butter
3/4 cup sugar
1 eggs
2 1/4 cups flour
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions

1. Cream butter and sugar together. Add in egg, dry ingredients and vanilla. Mix well. Refrigerate for a while if dough is too warm.

2. Roll out on lightly floured surface and cut in shapes. Place on ungreased baking sheet and bake at 375 degrees for 10-12 minutes. Do not allow to brown. Cool on wire rack and decorate if desired.

This dough rolls best when really cold. Cut into snowflake shapes and dust with powdered sugar, leave plain, or cover with a royal icing and colored sugar sprinkles.. just whatever works for you. :)

Kami said...

Mexican Wedding Cookies

1/2 cup butter, at room temperature (1 stick)
1/2 cup shortening
2 cups confectioners' sugar, divided
1-1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon almond extract
2 cups sifted all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup finely chopped pecans
Preheat oven to 325°F.

Using an electric mixer, cream together the butter, shortening and 1 cup of the confectioners' sugar in a large bowl. Stir in the vanilla and almond extracts.

Gradually add the flour and salt. Use the mixer for the first cup of flour, and then work in the remaining cup of flour and the finely chopped pecans by hand with a wooden spoon. Dough will be stiff.

Form dough into balls (1 level tablespoon each). Place on an ungreased baking sheet, 1 inch apart. Bake at 325°F on middle oven rack until light golden brown, 15 to 20 minutes.

While cookies are still warm, place the remaining cup of confectioner's sugar in a shallow dish. Roll the cookies in sugar to coat completely. Makes about 3 dozen cookies.

Hi! Roselanders!

Wanted to thank Olivia for her kind words. I can hear the song We are Santa's Elves playing as I drive down the road some days. Lol

Also thank-you Freddie for remembering.

Had a snow ball fight with my son. Boy did I lose!
But it was fun!

Haha! My word is logic!

Penny Lane said...

DK, Tracy, Kami,

Thank you so much for the sugar, butter, "white" cookie recipes. I'm a bit of a cookie "racist". I prefer the non-chocolate cookies best.

Here is a very old recipe for date lovers.

Date Nut Bars
Ingredients
2 cups sugar
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 cups chopped dates
2 cups chopped walnuts or pecans
4 eggs, lightly beaten
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
confectioners' sugar

In a large bowl, combine the sugar, flour, baking powder, salt, dates and nuts. Mix together the eggs, butter and vanilla. Add to the dry ingredients and stir just until dry ingredients are moistened (batter will be very stiff).

Spread in a greased 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pan. Bake at 350 F for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Cool bars on a wire rack. Dust with confectioners' sugar.

Kami said...

Penny, thank you for posting the Date nut cookie recipe..I love dates. I am posting a date nut loaf recipe next week...so good..now I just need some Baklava, a glass of wine and roaring fire and I'm set for Christmas.

my security word is Peens

Wildhart007 said...

Hi! Penny and Kami!

Kami bwahaha! Peens!

DreamerKind said...

@Penny & Kami

Yes, please, date nuts in any form, are my favorites. Thank you so much, Sistas.

Penny Lane said...

Peens! That is priceless. I never get any good words just wonky letters.

Hi Linda,

How's the elf business?

DreamerKind said...

I need a security code, too, don't I? Someone pick one for me.

Kay said...

HELLO Kami, Penny, Tracy, DK, Linda, jentoo and Annie - just peeking in to see how everyone is doing. I am finally on a bit of a roll getting some things done, so I'm going to make myself get back to working on Christmas. Hope you are all having a good night!

Tracy, I am glad you are getting a little bit of snow to whiten up your Christmas!

Penny and Rose, I am sorry that you are getting buried in snow - it has finally stopped here. Last night I was able to make a standing snow angel while leaning against the drift on my patio.....granted, I am only 5' tall, but you don't get to do that every day!

TTYL Roselanders :D

@Wild
Hi, Linda, I'm doing the usual, blabbing, writing on here, drinking coffee (so far), still in my new chic, red ruffled pj's (why bother to get dressed?), and rocking with youtube songs.

Thanks for asking.

You're the busy elf we count on every time this year, how's that going?

DreamerKind said...

@Kay
I am very jealous of you being able to make standing snow angels, no matter how tall or short you are.

Matter of fact, I have never even considered making them, before you mentioned doing so. Clever, clever, Kay.

I'm going find me some stand up snow to make my own and then I'll be happy like you.

First, I will take off these chic pj's and put on some warm clothing, don't worry, not going to ruin my Lauren jammies for any snow angel, here or in heaven.

Wildhart007 said...

Penny
The elf business is busy!
I've enjoyed all these recipes. You and Kami had a great idea!

Kay just once I would love to have that much snow!
We had enough for me to get a face washing!

olivia said...

Hi everyone! **waves**
Don't always catch up with so many when I peek in. Here are two more cookie recipes. These two do need oven time, but are still quite easy. Tomorrow I have a more complicated bar cookie that I will share.

The snow sounds wonderful and beautiful.....but, .....I really do not miss it. I have become a cold weather wimp.

Cashew Potato Chip Cookies

3/4 cup margarine
1/2 cup sugar
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup crushed potato chips
1/2 cup chopped salted cashew nuts
1 teaspoon vanilla

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Cream margarine and sugar.
Add flour, potato chips, cashews and vanilla.
Mix well; mixture will be crumbly at first, but will eventually stick together.
Pinch off pieces and roll into 1 inch balls.
Flatten balls with fork and place on ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake 10 to 15 minutes, until slightly golden around edges. Note: Watch carefully so cookies do NOT get too brown around edges.
Makes crunchy, but not too sweet cookies.
Yield: approx. 4 dozen


Melters

1 cup unsalted butter, softened
3/4 cup cornstarch
1 cup flour
1/3 cup confectioners' sugar

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In medium bowl cream butter; add cornstrarch, flour and sugar.
Beat until creamy.
Drop by teaspoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheet
( make small cookies).
Bake approximately 12 minutes. Watch carefully, better if not allowed to brown.
Yield: about 4 dozen
These cookies do melt in your mouth.

Wildhart007 said...

DK

Your PJ's sound like the bomb! I'm in flannel. Lol

DreamerKind said...

Kami
I'm with you...with the Baklava, wine and fire, and would be in reality, but the Baklava at the store looked too manufactured and not homemade at all.

There is a slight chance that I would fly over to see you, if you have the right kind of Baklava and wine, what do you say?

Kami said...

Unfortunately I have no Baklava nor wine...I just WISH I did

Hey Kay, I love the standing snow angels story..

Hi Wildhart, and Oliva, sorry if I missed anyone I'm watching the cowboys and it ain't pretty...

DreamerKind said...

@Wild
They (read me) don't call me the red-hot mama without cause (pj's are red).

Why the other day, I even tried to lure Syd to the blog, by telling him to come to me, his Little Mama.

I left off the "red-hot" part, out of modesty concerns (for Syd).

Wildhart007 said...

Hi! Olivia!

I like potato chips and cashews. Never thought of making a cookie with them.

DreamerKind said...

@olivia, olivia

My heart stopped when I saw your latest recipe!

Cashews, potato chips and cookies, all in one recipe, done took me to heaven, and back again, so happy, and Hallelujah.

olivia said...

Hi Kami and Linda!
They are quite good, a change from all the sweet cookies.
I just watched Annie Hall on TCM. I hadn't seen it in ages and was surprised to see on the credits at the end that Ralph Lauren did the costumes for the film. I totally forgot that the "Annie Hall look" was by Lauren.

olivia said...

Hi DK!

DreamerKind said...

@Kami

If the Cowboys don't look pretty today and you have a roaring fire going, maybe my flying by (as FGM), them and you, would save the day?

FGM is willing to fly into the storm for Kami and the Cowboys!

(Even without Baklava & Greek (has to be) wine.)

Wildhart007 said...

DK

I'm sure Syd will agree you are red hot! I don't see how he can resist with the red PJ's!

Kami
Sorry about the Cowboys. I feel your pain as I'm a Titan fan.

DreamerKind said...

@olivia
That's right Lauren, Annie Hall, and DK, all in the same place, and time, on Roseland.

Love your upbeat comments, and wonder if you are A Course In Miracles student, as I am?

olivia said...

Perhaps Pegasus can give you a ride over to keep you in the "Ride 'em Cowboys" theme.

Kami said...

Linda, we're looking better than I first thought..game's tied.

I feel your Titans pain..I'm a fan of their too..have been most of my life...I always say..they can change their names and uniforms but their still the Oilers..lol

DreamerKind said...

@Wild
One free-for-all, a little bit tipsy night (me, maybe Syd?), I told Syd on the blog, in a comment, that I missed and loved him.

He answered me that he was glad I missed him! Boo, hoo, what a shutdown for Dreamer.

But I forgive him his lapse in emoting, as I've created another, new fantasy about him instead.

Makes the days go by, some days.

Wildhart007 said...

Olivia

Annie Hall haven't seen that in ages. Her look was so distinctive.

I watched Lord of the Rings today. I love that movie and the books. I can lose myself in Tolkien's world.
My word is cotom hahaha!

DreamerKind said...

@Kami
I'll accept your thanks now, as I just flew over the Cowboys, in time, so the game could be tied. Ahemm.

DK

Fairy godmothers fly very fast, even in terrible weather, and use their minds for warp speeding.

Ask Birdie about those kind of minds, she knows...

DreamerKind said...

@Wild
You are perhaps right, Syd could not resist the red pj's, but he would have to tear them off of me first, before he could wear them!

Wildhart007 said...

Kami
I remember Warren Moon and the Oilers.

DK

We all have our fantasies! It makes life fun!

olivia said...

DK, one of my best friends in Michigan has spent a lifetime reading a variety of material including C in M, Edger Cayce, and much, much more. I myself have enjoyed a number of years in the past doing yoga, reading quite a bit by Eknath Easwaren, Thich Nhat Hanh, Stephen Levine and a few others. I still meditate and find that life is just much nicer when I focus on the positive and stay in the moment as much as I can even though real life doesn't work that way.

Linda, absolutely loved the Lord of the Rings series. Tolkien was a master craftsmen with the English language and imagination. I am so excited that the Hobbit is finally being made.

Wildhart007 said...

DK

Haha I think you are the wild one here. What have you been up to with that wand? Lol

DreamerKind said...

@olivia
I knew it!
Recognizing a fella soul isn't all that hard (we are all such).

Tolkien, a grand master of unity and light-making, and glimpses of real life moments that work, and play.

Kami said...

Me too Linda...I remember when Bum Phillips was the coach of the Oilers and Kenny Stabler was the QB. I was a little girl but I remember.

Wildhart007 said...

Olivia

You are so right about Tolkien and his language skills. Also you can see how WW2 affected him so intensely. I'm looking forward to The Hobbit. I hope they have finally worked out the financial issues. I love Ian as Gandolph.@

DreamerKind said...

@Wild
Oh, to be up to with the wand.

Rather the wand does its own thing and I try to be fully present to spread its work.

The wand has been working with Mother Nature to heal the environment, feed the poor, heal the sick, change minds and hearts, and so much else, you wouldn't believe it.

You can see why sometimes our visitors without love to share on Roseland, stick around until the wand stops by to wave them away, in peace and with love.

Wand's been too busy to wave much at them, alas. So they came en masse hoping for a wave, I'm sure.

Don't worry, the Magic Mirror is always on Roseland, and reflecting back true loveliness, if it is present and accounted for.

Ahhhh...the Oilers in the 70's. That takes me back too....Kenny Stabler, the Snake, & don't forget Earl Campbell and 'Love Ya Blue'....lol! That was during the time I lived in Houston:)

Linda, I read that Peter Jackson has taken over the production and that it will be back in New Zealand. There were problems, but I believe the financial and production related roadblocks have been removed. Yes, Ian is Gandolph incarnate.

I am presently waiting for The King's Speech with Colin Firth, Geoffrey Rush and Helena Bonham-Carter to make it to Austin. I am pretty sure it will not make it to my local theatre.

DK ?

Ouch! We're showing our age! Lol I just wish Bud Adams would shell out some cash for a few key spots on the team. It just seems every year is a lesson in untried rookies and hoping they will gel into a winning team. Did you see Jerry Jones on 60 minutes tonight?

DK
one of my friends keeps a notebook by her bed and writes down her dreams and analyzes them.I'm not that dedicated.

Wildhart007 said...

Jentoo
Hello! I just wanted to congratulate you! What an amazing accomplishment and such dedication, especially at this time of year.

DK
Your wand and you are the heart and soul of Roseland.

DreamerKind said...

@olivia

If you were asking me (DK?), I say yes, definitely for Ian as Gandolph.

Now a "yes" is not enough to express how much I want to see Colin in that king's speech, true events came to pass, movie-let's say "Insanely yes" for how much.

jentoo said...

Thanks, Linda! And I think I owe you a late Happy Anniversary? I'll have my 20th on the 22nd.

DreamerKind said...

@Wild
Not me either, no notebook or analyzing dreams.

Why last night, I dreamed about my ex-lover who lied to me, a new car that broke down completely right away, cause it was really 24 years old, about which the above mentioned ex, lied to me.

No, I don't need to figure out that dream. It was a nightmare sure enough, and apparently I still love the ex-lover, to even listen to him about anything.

Also, I should know better about cars and years, but this sillybilly doesn't know diddily squat of cars, ta, da!

Bella has nothing on me, with her lack of knowledge or interest in cars! To think that we both take credit for being so obtuse. It's unbelievable, but it's all fantasy, isn't it?

olivia said...

Jentoo, please accept my congratulations also. Your hard work and determination have most definitely paid off with wonderful results. Wishing you continued success.

Enjoy the evening everyone. Off to read for a while, then have an early morning tomorrow.
Hugs to y'all!

Wildhart007 said...

Jentoo
Thank-you and congratulations to you also! 20 years is a major accomplishment.

My boss has now texted me 4 times with a different start time for tomorrow. I think it should just be when I can get there with the weather. That answer is just to easy. Lol

DreamerKind said...

jentoo
The 20th on the 22nd! Wow, that's awesome.

You know, I kid a little at times, but I truly have deep admiration for those couples with long term marriages.

I wish that I would have been capable of or gifted with one myself.

Hold on tight to the happy, doth had spoketh, the Smittmeister, in past comments addressing, All Good Things.

DreamerKind said...

@olivia
Bye, kiddo!

DreamerKind said...

@Wildhart007
Linda, you are kind to say what you did about me and Roseland.

Truly I only reflect (with the Magic Mirror) the heart and soul of all on Roseland, and bask in its glow because I am ever idle and able to bask continually.

About the getting to work as the weather allows-ITA.

My family does not get that either and are trying to pinpoint me down to an actual minute for arrival, and I have the farthest to drive, and worst weather area.

Get real peeps, and make it simple, so spot on, Linda.

Wildhart007 said...

DK
Fantasy with a touch of reality. I believe we love people we are no longer involved with any longer but we are no longer in love with them.(even though they may have done us wrongly). My dreams lately have been about receiving comfort from people. My subconscious must want a hug! Lol
Cars are not my forte either. Let's just drive with the radio playing loudly

DreamerKind said...

Woo, hoo. DK is making way for other's to get a word in edgewise...

BBL, gotta zoom (eh, Bren?)

Wildhart007 said...

DK
I just thought about it, Rhianna has a song about just shut up and drive I really like. Smile

DreamerKind said...

For Wild and driving with the music on loud:

Turn Your Radio On

Ray Stevens get in touch/listen:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g1jpxlEPHX8

Well come and listen in
To a radio station
Where the mighty hosts
Of heaven sing
Turn your radio on

If you want to feel
Those good vibrations
Comin' from the joy
That His love can bring
Turn your radio on

And listen to the music in the air
Turn your radio on
And glory share

Turn your lights down low
And listen to the Master's radio
Get in touch with God
Turn your radio on

Don't cha know that everybody
Is a radio receiver
All you gotta do
Is listen for the call
Turn your radio on
I
f you listen in
You will be a believer
Leanin' on the truth
That will never fall
Get in touch with God
Turn your radio on

And listen to the music in the air
Turn your radio on
And glory share
Turn your lights down low

Listen to the Master's radio-o-o-o
(Turn your lights down low

And listen to the Master's radio)
Get in touch with God
Turn your radio on

Thank you/MrTrashcan1

I need to get to bed so I gotta bail also.
Also was thinking about Elaine and Em today. Hope they are doing well.
Laters

Linda

jentoo said...

Thanks, Yall! Very sweet! I can honestly say that I love the man more and more as time passes, so I feel very lucky in that:)

I'm stepping out to make the evening rounds of tucking in and straightening up.

Sweet Dreams, Olivia:)

Linda...be safe in the snowy weather tomorrow:)

DK...thanks again for the smiles:)

Goodnight Everyone!

Goodbye for now, Linda, hope you saw your Rihanna song-it's great.

Shouting out to Elaine along with you.

And there are others like lacey08, Caroline (orig.) Dowlingnana, 30, kstewrocks, Leslie, manjen and many others that are missed and hope they stop by soon.

Wildhart007 said...

Thanks DK

That's my ride!

DreamerKind said...

@jentoo
Get the sleep of a baby and we'll see you soon.


(I'm really going now, see who lies like her ex-lover?)

DK

DreamerKind said...

REPOSTED W/SONG LINK THIS TIME

For Wildhart007,
An actually loud song!

Rihanna is rockin'/listen:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qGmrEkuVqNw

I've been looking for a driver who's qualified
So if you think that you're the one step into my ride
I'm a fine-tuned supersonic speed machine
With a sunroof top and a gangster lean

So if you feel me let me know, know, know
Come on now what you waiting for, for, for
My engine's ready to explode, explode, explode
So start me up and watch me go, go, go, go

Got you where you wanna go if you know what I mean
Got a ride that smoother than a limosine
Can you handle the curves? Can you run all the lights?
If you can baby boy then we can go all night

Cos I'm 0 to 60 in three point five
Baby you got the keys-

Now shut up and drive
(drive, drive, drive)

I got class like a 57 cadillac
Got all the drive but a whole lot of boom in the back
You look like you can handle whats under my hood
You keep saying that you will boy I wish you would

So if you feel me let me know, know, know
Come on now what you waiting for, for, for
My engine's ready to explode, explode, explode
So start me up and watch me go, go, go, go

Got you where you wanna go if you know what i mean
Got a ride that smoother than a limosine
Can you handle the curves? Can you run all the lights?
If you can baby boy then we can go all night

Now shut up and drive
(drive, drive, drive)

Cos you play the game, got what I got (Get it Get it)
Don't Stop It's a sure shot
Aint no ferrari huh boy I'm sorry
I ain't even worried
So step inside and ride
(ride, ride, ride, ride, ride...)

So if you feel me let me know, know, know
Come on now what you waiting for, for, for
My engine's ready to explode, explode, explode
So start me up and watch me go, go, go, go

Got you where you wanna go if you know what i mean
Got a ride that smoother than a limosine
Can you handle the curves? Can you run all the lights?
If you can baby boy then we can go all night

Now shut up and drive
Shut up and drive

Thank you/ckkc09

Leslie said...

DK,
Hi! How is everybody's favorite late night dj? Hope your holiday season is going well. I've been checking in, but pretty busy so I haven't gotten a chance to post.

There seem to be a lot of fellow Tennesseans around here. Don't forget Lee MacDougall will be in Nashville in March. Think it's gonna be a really great show!

DreamerKind said...

@Leslie
See how fast the wand works, Leslie?

I was missing you and you appear!

Give me your favorite song Lee and I will post it.

Can you share a cookie recipe or if not, a Xmas dessert, bread, side dish with us?

You are just like Tracy and SueBee, the bomb!

DreamerKind said...

Yoo, who!!!

Whoever mentioned the bread pudding recipe, I'm your man (yikes, I might be high on sparkling wine!)

Please don't forget to post it and make some kind of wonky sign, so I will see it, please, please.

DK

DreamerKind said...

@SueBee
Are you going to forgive my stupidity? Hope so.

DK

Leslie said...

Dreamer, you truly are kind. My favorite Lee song is Smile. I'll have to search and see if I can find a good cookie recipe. It's finally starting to feel like Christmas. We got snow!

DreamerKind said...

Thanks, Lesile, you Kid!


How Kind Of You

Paul McCartney is there for us:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i1Kp_SDZ8QM


How kind of you to think of me
When I was out of sorts
It really meant a lot to be
In someone else's thoughts

Someone else's mind
Someone else as kind
As you.

The thoughtfulness you showed
has made
A difference in my life
I wont forget how unafraid
You were that long, dark night

I thought that I was lost
I thought I'd never find
A someone quite as kind
As you

I thought my faith had gone
I thought there couldn't be
A someone who was there
For me

How kind of you to stick by me
During the final bout
And listen to the referee
As I was counted out

I thought my time was up
I thought I'd never find
A someone quite as kind
As you

I thought my faith had gone
I thought it couldn't be
A someone who was there
For me.

How kind of you to think of me
How kind of you.


Thank you/piggies1

DreamerKind said...

@Leslie
I'll be posting Smile for you, except that I have again, fallen in love with Sir Paul and his kindness, needed and given...

Some songs put us in a place that is simple and true. Not many.

Listen to that song I posted, and let me know what you think?

DK

DreamerKind said...

@Leslie,

Spelled your name wrong as mentioned in the song, like the moron I can be, but forgive me, I am lost in Paul.

DK

DreamerKind said...

For Lesile, who needs to visit us
more often:


Smile

Lee MacDougall on his own merit:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I4gklP1OsaA

It's all been said before
But what was I to do,
Darling here's the truth
I've never found the words
For a masterpiece like you

You say I can be cold
Emotions cast from steel
Well, I might not bare my soul
But this is how I feel

I hate to see you cry
I love to see you laugh
I keep it in my mind
My favorite photograph

I take it out sometimes
To see you smile

And it's okay
O-k-hay...

It's all been said before
But what was I to do
I tripped over your smile
I fell in love with you

You broke my heart of stone
You solved my mystery
I don't need all I own
I just need you with me

I hate to see you cry
I love to see you laugh
I keep it in my mind
My favorite photograph

I take it out sometimes
To see you smile
It's okay

When my body gets old
And my body turns cold
And the great hand
Wipes the sun from the sky

Like a tear from your eye
and the clocks stop
when everything passes
the world's left in ashes

I'll still have your smile!

Thank you/innocentnaiveboy

Bren said...

"Voices singing, let's be jolly, deck the halls, with boughs of holly, Rockin' around the Christmas tree".....

I have been singing that all day...

What's happening, little lady?

LJ said...

Oh my word, are my eyes dreaming!!? DK you little minx! lol

That is going to make me chuckle all day...........

Hi everyone! hope you all had a great weekend.

Off to work! byeeeeeee
Liza

DreamerKind said...

@Bren
Since I just saw your comment, and you have the habit of cyberspace trolling after you make a comment to me, how shall I answer your question?

Well, ok, I am scarfing down microwave popcorn (which my friend Joy said Dr. Oz says, will kill me soon) and I had a beer and sparkling wine, so do you want to talk with me at all?

Bren said...

I kept coming back, and no Dreamer to be found....

DreamerKind said...

God, popcorn and butter are so satisying.

Now, confession time: I had the chance to go before 5pm, to the library and pick up the "Cake Eaters" and "The Land of Women" with our darling Kristen. Did I, oh, no, too much blabbing on the phone that resulted in too much fine wine tasting and beer scarfing with popcorn.

Guilty as charged, but thankfully the police have not knocked on my door tonight for roads are black ice covered and protecting me. Plus I did not drive my car and the neighbors have not reported me for loud music and hijinx yet.

DreamerKind said...

@Bren
Give me a break, you are the worst at keeping watch on comments, for you travel and trip the light fantastic.

Bren said...

Popcorn, beer and wine oh my....

I'll still converse, no problem..

I hate this word verif.....UGH!
