Rob and Kristen- You're a Mean One, Mr. Grinch.

Hey Kris- I should be home for dinner. How bout some IN N OUT burgers?

WFE is releasing a trailer this week.
And the very thought makes my stomach flip/flop.
I like the feeling.
I haven't had that feeling in a while now...
And it's good to know that Robert still does it for me.

I don't think he has EVER looked better
(at least to me)
and I'm just looking forward to this whole movie...
But mostly Robert.
Always Robert.

You believe WHAT? Really?

You might not believe this
(and I don't really blame you)
But every morning I come online...
And think...
"I'm not going to talk about the negativity today."
I really do.

I have good intentions...
because although I'm a bit bitchy
(or a lot bitchy, depending on who you ask)
I'm a good person.
I do try to see the positive in situations...
and in people.
I try to give the benefit of the doubt.


Stop making up nasty shit about me and posting it as fact.

Although I come online with good intentions
and purity of heart...
I always get interesting stuff in my email/DMs
that I just can't NOT respond to...

So I was told that someone was threatening Kristen... again.
It was posted on some board/site that I don't know.
Saying they would 'post her contract' and other things

"IF she goes to London or even LEAKS one more GODDAMN picture
of his family or makes up more rumors of Robert.
This isn't a warning this is a promise."

Who does this person think they are?
Who fucking makes threats like this?
Seriously... Who DOES this? 

I still don't get why people think Kristen is out to ruin Rob's career.
How does that make sense in any way?
How does leaking a year old Christmas Pic hurt WFE?
Why would Kristen need to make up rumors about Rob?
Why would she want to hurt him or his family?
How does this help her career?
And where does Rob fit into all this?
Is he just sitting around twiddling his thumbs while Kristen
 supposedly leaks pictures and rumors?

Do people STILL think Rob is just some big idiot doofus
Who has no clue what is going on around him?
That he is willing to forgo years of his life for the sake
of some movies?
That he is blindly led by the nose with no say
in what happens to him or his career?

"She is gay. She has a morality clause in her contract. 
Also her pr ppl leaked that picture. It wasn't stolen from FB..
and Rob's family is really upset. Fail you fucking ducks you always fail."
This is all kinds of delusional scary crazy.
They not only presume to know what is in Kristen's contract.
They are positive she is 'gay'
(although it only came up as an issue since she's been with Rob)
They are obviously close personal friends of Rob's family
to know that they are 'really' upset...
They know her "PR PEOPLE"  leaked that pic
So why did they wait a year to leak it?
Holding on to a fairly normal Christmas picture to leak
a year later to offset some imagined diabolical plan to
sabotage Robert's movie career.

I hope it does.
Because if you associate with this kind of lunacy...
You will look just as crazy.

And we all know who the crazy duck hater is.


I guess I will never get used to how much people
hate on Kristen Stewart.
People put words in her mouth.
People misquote her and misunderstand her...
All to fit into their fucked up agendas.
Rob and Kristen aren't in competition with each other.
From what I've seen... 
they are very supportive of what the other does.
(From going to each others movie sets... to premieres)

And for God's sake...
Give Robert some motherfucking credit, will you?
He's intelligent.
He knows what he's doing.
He knows what he wants.
And whether you like it or not...
It is what it is.

BTW? This shirt belongs to Kristen...


We haven't seen Kristen in quite some time...
And I don't really blame her.
But wherever she is right now...
I know she is having the last laugh.
Because she's probably laughing with Rob.
Did I say with Rob?
Of course.
Christmas in L.A.?
New Years in London?
Maybe a bit of both? 
It doesn't really matter the logistics...
I know they will be together.
Because thats where they want to be.
That's what they always are.

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


Thanks a lot for reminding me that my Grinch shoes
were too tight...
And my Grinch sleigh needs new brakes...

I have hope that my Grinch heart will grow 3 sizes 
before Christmas...


Bye for now

I'm so sick of it. these people hating kristen because of Robert. I dont care if only a few or not. just so sick of it.

Kristen needs to stay away from Rob.
and I'm done with Robert. I will not following him anymore.

jen said...

Bunch of freaks.

this notion Kristen is sabotaging Robert's career by leaking Christmas photos is full of idiocy. Yeah, cause there's nothing like seeing Kristen by a Christmas tree to make WFE fail!

It's like get your heads out of your fanfiction ruled asses and come back to planet earth.

Yeah, I'm sure his family is so upset right now, that's why they are the ones smiling widest in the photo next to Robert and his lady friend.

I usually laugh at the crazies, but sometimes the crazies just straight out scare me.

Autumngal said...

OMG...are they serious? Do they genuinely believed the shits they're spawning? Man that sounded very delusional and beyond scary. Who the hell do they think they are? A threat like that to stop the inevitable? That's some creepy shit, it's not even amusing anymore...I really question their mental health now like real mental issue.

angelica1 said...

Ada - That's pathetic, Kristen's an intelligent,grown,woman who chooses to be with Rob and I'm sure neither of them give a damn about the opinions of a few delusional nutjobs. Rob's done nothing to encourage them and nothing to warrant your contempt and I highly doubt Kristen would thank you for taking that stance.

jen said...

autumngal-I question the mental stability too. Seriously, this is like what schizophrenia looks like often, where people associate two completely unrelated things and fixate on them as if it were truth. This mixture of paranoia, making associations and treating them like truths, and inserting yourself into the fantasy setup you created is like crazytown 101.

Kay said...

SERIOUSLY?!?!?!? Complete insanity.

Hope you are having a good Tuesday, Roselanders!

Addicted to Robsten said...

I don't blame you for feeling like the Grinch. These people who hate on people they have never even met drive me INSANE! What does it really matter to them if Rob and Kristen are together or not. I believe that they are but does it matter to Rob and Kristen what I believe NO! I'm glad that you Rose have the decency to state how you feel and not be ashamed of it!

Penny Lane said...


If you are really a Kristen fan, don't you think you should support her choices?

This is the last day for cookie only recipes. Tomorrow starts a free for all. Anything Christmas, pie, cake, candy, soap even spotted dick.

Not really on the spotted dick...I just wanted to say spotted dick. And see, I did, 3 times.

Autumngal said...

Jen I agreed with you completely, it's one thing to be in denial out of shear jealously or glimpse of fantasy but to turn those delusional into tangible emotion and beliefs for them is just beyond help. I've long stopped reading boards like AT because I thought those trolls were just disgusting but thought it was just their mere mentality to stir the sane ones but now I think some of those trolls really do believe the shit they crapped! Talking about an eye opener.

jennco2 said...

Oh God the first comment... *facepalm*

yeah ada because all kristen fans are saint right? Don't think so.
Kristen has some pretty nasty fans of her own. The crazies come from both sides. Neither side is innocent.

I'm seriously sick of all these 'let's blame Rob' (or kris) crap.

Kami said...

Ada,I don't understand why you woulb blame Rob for comments being said about her?

The problem is NOT...I repeat NOT...anything that Rob or Kristen have done nothing...NOTHING...to encourage such talk. The idiots who are saying stuff like that are the problem.
Rob LOVES Kristen and would most likely take on the Devil himself to protect her.
Also Ada...trust me Kristen LOVES Robert more than anything..so give it a rest blaming him for the stupid things people say and do.

Rhonda said...

Thank you for sharing this Rose.

I knew there were a lot of crazies out there but this is crazy to the point of insanity..as in..needs an immediate mental health intervention!! I seriously worry about their safety sometimes.
How can anyone have that much hate towards people they don't even know?! Know wonder they need bodyguards!

30 said...

See this is WHY I worry for Kristen and Rob's safety. I always have.

I have to ask this but WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH THESE PEOPLE? Where they raised by trash? Are they even human? This mental ownership of an ACTOR is ridiculous, Sick, delusional. Is there a physiologist on this board? I mean my god!

And to the bitches or bitch who threatens Kristen, Trust,Rob wouldn't touch your ugly ass if you had a bag on your head and a muzzle on your mouth. Whither Kristen is in his life or not! Got it?

Thank you, thank you. I am definitely copying that one, not a bit of chocolate to be seen.

deb said...

Rose I cant believe some FUCKEN NUTCAS out there THINKS that Rob well LEAVE KRISTEN HOW FUCKEN FUNNY Like you said give ROBERT some fucking CREDIT (HE) KNOWS what (HE)WANTS for some time now HE IS a INTELLIGENT MAN and HE has FOUGHT for HER and put up with all the BULLSHIT why cant people just be happy for him and Kristen and let them be HAPPY you know Rob well try to keep Kristen safe do you think he is happy about this HO HELL KNOW you dont FUCK with HIS GIRL . Love your post Rose DEB.

Sydney said...

I've always wondered if Rob had dated Nikki or Ashley or anyone else if they would get this level of hate. And honestly, I really don't think so. But I think it's mostly because of her - I don't even know what to call it...charisma? She's mysterious, interesting, intriguing, etc. All these people pretend they hate her, but they are flat out obsessed with her. There is something about her, that others' just don't have. A je ne sais quoi. People just can't stop talking about her.

The other girls would have been obviously transitory. But it's been two years and Rob is clearly still quite taken and wholly invested in Kristen. And that is what is so threatening about her. She has his attention and devotion, and is quite capable of keeping it. She has the longevity potential and the longer Rob is smitten (or "pussy-whipped"), the more she'll get hate for it.

The crazies who spout threats and nonsense are only doing so because they are utterly powerless to stop it. They can change nothing.

Devious Dee said...

I think it is crazy how these "grown ass woman" think that Robert Pattinson is going to someday come to their house and ring their bell and propose to them. They are lunatics in the highest degrees. First, the threats need to really be address by the sites that post the dumbness. Second, if Rob's parents truly were upset about the picture being leaked because they don't like Kristen, why the hell would the pose in a pic with Kristen in the first place. I really dont know whether these people are young teenagers or older woman who continue to spew this trash, but they need to grow the hell up. And to Ada, how the hell can you blame Rob for something that a bunch of loney tunes have spewed. You are just as crazy as they are. And I bet you he doesnt gives a rat's behind if you follow him or not. I dont think Robert or Kristen want psycho, immature fans. Just My Opinion.

Sydney said...

A Must See:


SueBee said...

Wow, it never ceases to amaze me how crazy people can get.

I'm just stunned by the lunacy. Seriously.

BTW, I love ducks too!

Kami said...

Sydney, no matter who Rob dated people would hate them...they hate Kristen so violently because she gets to do what they want to be doing.

As for Nikki or Ashley and how people would react...I would react like this...I think Ashley is a beautiful, lovely young woman.

As for the other one...excuse me...I can't finish my thought...for some reason I feel the overwhelming need to throw up.

Kami said...

Penny, You're welcome I posted that recipe especially for you

kharma1 said...

Hi Rose,

All I have to say is these women that are spewing these hateful things are mentally ill
And you can't reason with them, they need professional help.
I really don't think it has anything to do with Rob or Kristen, they just happened to focus on these two and made it their obsession.
You just don't know what goes on in their heads, they are ill.

I just hope Rob & Kristen's people know about them and know exactly who they are.

I'm with you, I try to be a positive, happy person but when you read about all this hate, not only in this fandom, but you hear it daily on the news, you can't help but get depressed.

Stay Positive, that's all you can do, and not let these sickos bring us down to their level.
I'm still twirling with you Rose.

Sydney said...

Kami: I agree. I just so wonder. Are you on twitter? Every Kristen hater on there LOVES Ashley and Nikki. It would just be interesting to see what the dynamic would be had he dated either one of them. I just think Kristen is in a league of her own.

Kristen seems so like Rob, they seem so perfectly suited. The other two? It would have been a mismatch. I just wonder if she gets more hate because of that. Not that the reason for the hate matters.

And Devious Dee: I've seen many of these "women" on twitter. Many of them are married with children. So yeah, think of the example they're setting. It's really quite horrifying that someone with children could treat an innocent girl that way.

angelica1 said...

Kami - I agree. I've always believed that,although the loons like to delude themselves otherwise,they would have hated whoever he went out with.They can't exactly say that though,since it would be an outright admission of the level of their insanity!

Apple,Oat and Cinnamon cookies:
100g unsalted butter, softened
70g granulated sugar
50g light muscovado sugar
1 large egg
140g plain flour
50g porridge oats
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp bicarbonate of soda
100g dried ready-to-eat apples, roughly chopped

1. Preheat the oven to 180°C/fan160°C/gas 4. Lightly grease 2-3 non-stick baking sheets. Put the butter and sugars into a large bowl and cream together using an electric hand whisk until pale, light and fluffy. Gradually beat in the egg until mixed together.
2. In a bowl, mix the flour, oats, cinnamon, bicarbonate of soda and a good pinch of salt. Lightly fold this into the butter and egg mixture, along with the dried apples, until just combined into a dough.
3. Put tablespoonfuls of the dough onto the baking sheets, spaced apart to allow for some spreading. Bake for 12 minutes, leave to cool, dust with icing sugar.

katy said...

Ada, Seriously??!!?? As if Rob was to blame for people hating on Kristen. It's NOT Robert fault you morron, he didn't do anything to encourage such hate on Kristen...How do you think this makes Robert feel?? He loves Kristen...don't you think when someone says evil and hateful things about Kristen that it causes him concerne about her and he makes him sad. And the same goes with Kristen, she loves Robert and I doubt that your comment would make her happy...you don't know Kristen and you sure don't know what its best for her and if you were a true fan of her you would respect and supporte whatever decisions she makes.

Rose, I will never ever understand WHY people can have so much hate for people that they don't know...it's just insane. All of this just makes me awfully sad.

30 said...


That pic is the sweetest thing ever. :)

Mr.Pattinson looks a bit scared holding her though. lol Shes So small.

LJ said...

Hiya everyone!!

Nice post Rose, this is what makes me laugh about these so called Rob fans.....who seem to infer that he is so weak he can't choose his own path in life...what a joke. You don't achieve the things he has by being a lap dog, come on people get a bloody grip!!!

Hope your all good & ready for christmas!

Gorgeous pic Suse, another sassy dress I see!

Penny you know what I'm posting a recipe for tomorrow right?....first word starts with 'S' second with 'D'......


Lots of love,

Gaga said...

It isn't just Rob fans that think that way. I'm on tumblr and I've seen so many blogs run by Kristen fans who think Kristen is gay. But they don't just think shes gay. They believe that she is staying in the closet for Summit and is forcing herself to go on dates with Rob. And some hate Rob too. Just saying they are the ones that have made ridiculous pictures with Kristen looking replused with Rob. They're nonstens too. And I'm not trying to defend the other haters with this comment. I've seen some Rob fans make hateful comments about Kristen being gay too on tumblr. I'm just surprised no one though has spoken out much about these other "nonstens" yet. There are so many of them on tumblr now and they all share the same belief. Rob and Kristen are friends and Kristen is gay and doing PR for Summit.

katy said...

Sydney...awww!! How cute and sweet that pic of Rob with the baby. Thank you for posting it.

bev said...

Wow, its hard to believe that two wonderful people can have such demented fans. I guess its a sign of the times but you hear more about "sick" devotion in this fandom than most anywhere. I too worry about Rob and Kristen, and I hate to admit it but women are usually the wackiest. Men can be too but it seems in fewer numbers.

I usually want to go off on the nutjobs but it doesnt seem to help with their "sickness" but man is it tempting.


thanks so much for having this blog. Its nice to know there is some sanity somewhere.

Keep the faith, Roselanders. You all are the best.

Melinda said...

Quack, quack! How is everyone today??

Come now we all know that Rob is being hoodwinked by the big bad woof's (here's looking at you David Letterman) Kristen and Summit(insert massive eye roll here).

These people make themselves WAY too important. Like Rob and Kristen care what they say or do unless it is an actual physical threat. Hopefully they take those seriously if they are alerted to them. Everything else out there is just plain laughable because it is so absurd.

Scary that most of these people are adult women, some married and some mothers. I feel pity for their husbands/so b/c they will never measure up to the Rob fantasy these women have created. And their children, what are they teaching them?

Glad Rob and Kristen are out there somewhere enjoying their life together hopefully unaffected by all the crazy.

Hope everyone is having a great day thus far!

Hope said...

Rose....Seriously...Who makes these damn threats??!!!! For the love of God...STOP THE MADNESS!!!!

Sydney...agreed...NO ONE can hold a candle to Kristen...NO ONE...especially the other 2 mentioned.


Penny Lane said...


I cannot wait for that recipe! :)


Your recipe sounds like a muffin. I can't wait to try it. Thank you all so much for posting all these recipes without chocolate in them!

Annie said...

Kristen Stewart had the same boyfriend for four years! Did Summit dictate that one too? The all powerful Summit!
People need to get a grip on reality sooner rather than later.
I never seen such rampant stupid bullshit because people cannot wrap it around their thick skulls that a young man and a young woman WANT to be together and LOVE each other!

Kristen is doing PR for Summit and putting her and Rob's young life on hold until the end of 2012 and beyond, with promotion for a movie series that needs no promotion whatsoever?

It has been said that we should worry more about the crazy who are on the outside rather than the ones already institutionalized because those people are at least getting the help they need. Certain segments prove that point beyond a shadow of doubt!

No wonder Robert is so fiercely protective of Kristen!

Annie said...

I meant to say...... certain segments of this fandom.

Annie said...

I need to post a recipe to erase the bullshit.
Stupid people really do piss me off!

Today’s recipe is for holiday-friendly French cookies called "palmiers" that are made with puff pastry, cinnamon sugar and a little butter. The cookies may appear difficult make, but the recipe is actually simple. The name "palmier" refers to the fact that the cookies end up looking like tops of palm trees.

4 tbs of butter
1/3 cup white sugar
1 tbs ground cinnamon.
2 sheets of puff pastry

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees and melt 4 tbs of butter in a small pot. Make the cinnamon sugar in a small mixing bowl by combining 1/3 cup white sugar with 1 tbs ground cinnamon.

Plan ahead and defrost 1 box, or 2 sheets, of puff pastry in the fridge overnight. Lay those out on a floured work surface, sprinkle a little more flour over the top and use a rolling pin to roll them out into longer and thinner rectangles.

Next, use a pastry brush to divide the melted butter over both sheets and then evenly sprinkle a generous amount of the cinnamon sugar.

Starting along one long side, tightly roll the puff pastry halfway and then tightly roll the other side towards the middle.

Cut the rolled up pastry crosswise into ½-inch thick slices and carefully transfer them to parchment paper-lined baking trays, flat side down. Leave an inch or two inches between each cookie.

Sprinkle a little of the remaining cinnamon sugar over the top of the cookies and place the trays into the preheated oven.

The cookies will take just about 15 minutes to bake and the trays should be switched from top to bottom halfway through.

LJ said...

Hi Annie!

I love Palmiers, my sister in law is French and she makes them.

Yum Yum!!

Barbara Fenwick said...

Oh Rose, you are so right. I am sick and tired of all these people hating Kristen, when she hasn't done anything to anybody...all she has done is fall in love with someone who loves her. I think Kris and Rob support each other like two people in love, neither one would try and sabbotage the other. People who spread this garbage are sick, evil individual and should seek therapy.

olivia said...

Oh my Rose, how sad it is to hear that such negativity exists in certain fan groups around Rob and Kristen. I often wish that one could dissect such brains to really see what motivates them. What is lacking in their formation as a human being to create such hurtfulness, anger and jealousy?

Rose, loved the "In N Out Burger" pic caption! Too cute.

Sydney, thanks for the link to the Rob pic with little one. Absolutely precious.

BBL this evening.

Anonymous said...

LMAO! What a crazy nuthead! Srsly! Who they think they are?
And for Gods sake let them post that contract! I wanna see it LOL
Great post Rose :)

katy said...

Annie, thanks for the recipe. I love palmiers.

Annie said...

Hi liza! :)

I love anything with cinnamon so this one was easy. Yes, palmiers are yummy!

Hello everyone. :)

Ren Ten Jen said...

Rose I'm so glad you posted that twisted person's threat, even though it is uncomfortable to read.

I hope things of this nature can be traced. This person obviously should be prosecuted. This actually doesn't surprise me after some of the things we have seen from Romantic Fool and anyone associated with Showbiz Spy, etc. They are female with major emotional personal issues. I'm sure Rob wished they would fall off the planet. And you can tell there is no logic, no capability of reasoning in the mind of this person or others who have focused on R/K with very unbalanced and abnormal public behavior. Keep us posted Rose. Cyber Police!! Where are you!

This was an amazing, perfect post today. I have seen comments such as these, directed at both Rob and Kristen but mostly Kristen. I truly do not understand the mentality of these people. I always wish and hope these "fans" are very young, but sadly many of them are adults, some even with children. I honestly cannot fathom what they think they will achieve by any of this. Rob's undying love and devotion? yeah, right.

I do think that if we added up the IQ's of these lovely folk, it would not break 80! As a fan of Rob, I am truly glad he has such a wonderful, talented, bright, beautiful person in his life. I have come to truly care about Kristen is a way (since I obviously don't know her). But as a mother of two sons, I know I would be thrilled for them to have such a caring person by their sides. To wish or think of anything else is maddness.

You said it so well Rose.

Penny Lane said...

Tracy and Annie,

I'm so happy. You all are posting such great non-chocolate cookies.

And in case anyone wonders, I'm not allergic. I just don't care for a lot of chocolate.

First of all, it never ceases to amaze that people think they can get away with making threats like these - they do know that the tomato chick re the RM premiere got a 'visit' don't they? This person is even more unhinged. Don't they know that everyone on the internet has eyes, including intelligence people that might be reading such a vile post? The server and ISP of that person needs to be contacted STAT. I hope this was done. That said --
Where is the logic behind Kristen Stewart leaking pics? I'm confused aren' these the same haters who've been sqawking about Kristen being such a terrible gf because she never wants to acknowledge Rob and their relationship, and now they've got Kristen as a famewh*re leaking pics?? That doesn't exactly JIBE with all of Rob's co-stars in his other movies, including Bel Ami, AND WFE, and one Reese Witherspoon, bringing up KRISTEN'S NAME to the media, when Kristen hasn't said a word. It's Rob, co-stars of Rob, friends of Rob, and family of Rob, who have always ALWAYS brought up Kristen and told the world essentially that they're together...so I think it's HiLARIOUS, that these sick twisted toxic bishes have done a 180, and now want to accuse Kristen of pimping them out. Hahahaha.
I really REALLY do hope they are either 12, or a bit slow and not well - otherwise, they will most certainly be turned in for these threats.

We Need A Little Christmas

Angela Lansbury is Mame/listen:

Haul out the holly
Put up the tree before my spirit falls again,
Fill up the stocking,
I may be rushing things
but Deck the Halls again now

We need a little Christmas
Right this very minute,
Candles in the window,
Carols at the spinet.

Yes, we need a little Christmas
Right this very minute.

It hasn't snowed a single flurry,
But Santa, dear, we're in a hurry

So climb down the chimney
Put up the brightest string of lights I've ever seen.

Slice up the fruitcake;
It's time we hung some tinsel
on that evergreen bough.

For we need a little music,
Need a little laughter,
Need a little singing
Ringing through the rafter,

And we need a little snappy
"Happy ever after,"
Need a little Christmas now.

Thank you/65Seasons

R.E.M shines it for us/listen:

Shiny happy people laughing
Meet me in the crowd
People, people

Throw your love around
Love me, love me
Take it into town

Happy, happy
Put it in the ground
Where the flowers grow
Gold and silver shine

Shiny happy people holding hands
Shiny happy people laughing

Everyone around
Love them, love them
Put it in your hands

Take it, take it
There's no time to cry
Happy, happy

Put it in your heart
Where tomorrow shines
Gold and silver shine

Thank you/TheDizlin

Great post...I can't believe some of the people out there! The are truly unhinged!

@Dreamer~ you posted great songs last night! :)

Hope everyone has a good evening! It's still freezing and snowing here. School was canceled for my little one today so he stayed home, and needless to say, I didn't get anything done! :) But, we had a great time playing games!!


LJ said...

Aww I saw your pics Susan you have a beautiful family, your girls are so gorgeous!!!

I miss you too....we need to rendezvous!

*Bigs hugs back!*

Ahhh Lynn I love your Avi...what a cutie...

OMG, I can't believe how freakin' A crazy the Nonstens are!!! I mean, batshit, certifiable CRAZY.

There is just no justification or excuse...and it makes me afraid for both Kristen and Robert.

On the bright side, I believe the sane, true fans far outnumber the nut jobs. And I just want Kristen and Robert to know that the Crazies are just a delusional fringe group. But their real fans love and support them and their choices, both professional and personal. Let's think about the positive and TWIRL!

MLH414 said...

@Kami~ Thanks! He's six and is obsessed with Spiderman! LOL
As soon as he comes home from school, he puts on his Spidey costume! Right now, he is running around making Spidey poses!!


real pr pro said...

Here's a little "PR" for some of the lunatic fringe to consider. That's PR as in Penal Realities:

SEC. 3. Section 422 of the Penal Code is amended to read:
422. Any person who willfully threatens to commit a crime which will result in death or great bodily injury to another person, with the specific intent that the statement, made verbally, in writing, or by means of an electronic communication device, is to be taken as a threat, even if there is no intent of actually carrying it out, which, on its face and under the circumstances in which it is made, is so unequivocal, unconditional, immediate, and specific as to convey to the person threatened, a gravity of purpose and an immediate prospect of execution of the threat, and thereby causes that person reasonably to be in sustained fear for his or her own safety or for his or her immediate family's safety, shall be punished by imprisonment in the county jail not to exceed one year, or by imprisonment in the state prison.

DreamerKind said...


Thanks for enjoying the songs, Lynn. It is really fun to pick them out.


Elaine said...

Hi Ladies!!!

I think I've missed a lot in these few days. Just life has gotten a little crazy busy!
I think I'm gonna need a lot of exercise after baking all these delicious recipes.
Hi Liza, Susan, T, Penny, Kami, Melinda, Angelica and anyone else I'm missing!
Hope you all are having a great time this holiday season!

Rose-Great post as usual! It is great that we can come here and leave all the craziness behind.


Freddie said...

Hey Rose and everyone else,

I feel fortunate at the moment. I don’t visit many sites on the internet, so I remain blissfully ignorant of the degree of lunacy out there. For my own sanity, I almost need to believe that the hate is limited to a small, albeit vocal, minority. It’s too depressing to think that there are a lot of people out there who are so angry, so hateful.

You know, as others have pointed out, the internet is a mixed blessing. It has opened up a world of possibilities, allowing people, like members of this board to forge friendships they wouldn’t have made otherwise, and it provides access to an astonishing wealth of information. On the flip side, it serves to feed some people’s fantasies and obsessions. Those inclined, can follow the objects of their likes /dislikes like never before. They can live and breathe their fantasies all day if they want, and meet up with other like-minded people. It can be a breeding ground for hate.

I really believe that the best thing that could be done for the some of the people in this fandom is to take away their access to the internet. If they aren’t immersed in the environment all the time – constantly exposed to flood of Rob/Kristen news, the multitude of pictures, and the vitriol of others – then perhaps they might regain some proper perspective on life. I believe they would be happier in the long run and the world would be a much saner, and possibly safer place.

Enough with the soapbox.

Oh, and Rose and I absolutely love the Grinch…

Kami said...

Lynn...how cute, I can picture him running around in his spiderman costume.

Real Pro...I like you more and more each day!!! Thank you so much for posting that!

Elaine hope everything is ok with you and the family...enjoy the holidays.

Freddie I sent my mother-in-law the recipes you posted yesterday, she made them for a church event and said to tell you everyone LOVED THEM!! so thank you

Freddie said...

Hey Rhonda – hope you had a good day baking cookies.

Sorry to hear about your bad weather. So far, we’ve been pretty lucky. We only got about half an inch of snow but it’s gotten cold and we have a wicked wind chill at the moment. In the overall scheme of things though, we’ve gotten off much easier than some other parts of Canada and the States.

Stay warm and have a cookie for me.

Freddie said...

Hi Kami,

That’s great news. So glad they worked out. I suspect your Mother-in-Law's baking skills had a lot to do with it.

Have a great rest of day.

martialartslover said...

Hello Miss Rose and to all of Roseland!

Where to begin. I didn't feel right posting about twilight stuff since I have not seen any of the movies.

Miss Rose, I feel so bad about all the nasty stuff you are receving.

Where do all these crazies come from? With so many hollywood couples breaking up, we should be thankful or I should say the crazies should be thankful that Rob and Kristen are together.

I was reminded by a friend of mine, whom almost became my x friend about Johnny Depp and Wynnoa Rider. How their relationship didn,t last for too long after they made Edward scissorhands.

I had to point out to her that Rob and Kisten Have been together for more than 4 years. (Am I right?)
Then she told me to calm down killer. Not sure what she meant by that. She just wanted to remind me that yes they are couple, but only time will tell if their relationship will last.

Well we can only pray and hope that they will be like Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson, Steven Spielberg and his wife Kate. Lasting forever.

To Roseland, thank you soooooooooooo much for your cookie recipes. They have been the talk of the office.Considering I don't bake. Again, thank you.

Miss Rose, you just stay strong and you too will have the last laugh.

If I don't post again, have a blessed Merry Christmas to you Miss Rose and to all of Roseland.

You all make my bad days look goofy,and I am gratefull to all of you.

DreamerKind said...


"The brave person confronts fear and moves toward it.
It then gets smaller."

That's you and why you make a difference!


Rhonda said...

Hi Freddie,

I had a great day of baking and eating cookies!

Your earlier comments were very appropriate and so true. I am like you in the fact that I don't spend a lot of time on other sites. I guess that's why I'm always so shocked when some of the negativity shows up here. It really disturbs me that people would behave in such a cruel manner. I long for a more genteel society. Anyway, thanks again for your comments and your recipe..I wrote it down to try. You stay warm as well :)


R.E.M is one of my all time favorites! You ROCK!!

hello to all Roselanders!

oh come on...seriously these people are beyond crazy/delusional. They badly needs professional help, asap.

Great post Rose. Thanks for the place where we can go/talk to 'bout our fave couple.

beaculen said...

I still don't get why all the hate? They literally are doing all they can to NOT be in the limelite, and NOT broadcast their personal relationship. Yes the picture was private and should not have been released, but give me a frikkin break! How the hell does that picture cause any problem for Rob's career, in any way sanely possible? The haters are now starting to take this waaaay too far, threatening Kristen? What the fuck? These people are truely sick. Thanks for shareing Rose, even if it did piss me off lol stupid haters.

DreamerKind said...

Gonna see you later?

We, rock it, together.

I Don't Want To Set The World On Fire

The Ink Spots fire up/listen:

I don't want to set the world on fire
I just want to start a flame in your heart

In my heart I have but one desire
And that one is you
No other will do

I've lost all ambition for worldly acclaim
I just want to be the one you love

And with your admission that you feel the same
I'll have reached the goal I'm dreaming of

Believe me

I don't want to set the world on fire
I just want to start a flame in your heart

Thank you/killzone10

Hi Roseland...I am turning in early tonight..worked til 2am..such is life..anyhow..I cant end my day without checking on the landscape at Roseland...

ROSE...Again I shake my head right along with you and every sane Roselander when I read of the "threats" made against R&K..God, what has this world come to?

REAL PR Pro...Thank you for writing that message...I was thinking that surely there were laws in place to protect people from the crazies out there. Surely R$K's management team monitors these websites and takes appropriate action

DK..I have been listening to my Carpenters xmas dvd's. Would you post some lyrics from those? Karen Carpenter was amazing in those xmas songs...One of favorites "Merry Christmas Darling" and "Peace on Earth Good Will to Man" (I think that is the name of it)? I have been missing you!

I Believe...Every night I look for you but dont see your posts til the next day since I crash so early...Anyway I am thinking of you and saw where you got to go into work a little later b/c of the weather...we are literally FREEZING down here...in the teens at night and I think the high today was like 34!

Stay warm everybody!

DreamerKind said...

See all of my comments?

I am avoiding the Christmas decorating scheme of the evening by making them.

Hopeless, hopeless, Dreamer.

Someone else, please take the stage.

DreamerKind said...


Yes, some fairylike folk have been thinking deeply and happily about you but are avoiding doing things, cause they are like that.

Certainly, for the lyrics and rest well.

DreamerKind said...

For SuperRNGP:

Merry Christmas, Darling

The Carpenters:

Greeting cards have all been sent
The Christmas rush is through

But I still have one wish to make
A special one for you

Merry Christmas, darling
We're apart, that's true

But I can dream
And in my dreams
I'm Christmasing with you

Holidays are joyful
There's always something new

But every day's a holiday
When I'm near to you

The lights on my tree
I wish you could see
I wish it every day

The logs on the fire
Fill me with desire
To see you and to say

That I wish you Merry Christmas
Happy New Year too

I've just one wish
On this Christmas Eve
I wish I were with you

The lights on my tree
I wish you could see
I wish it every day

The logs on the fire
Fill me with desire
To see you and to say

That I wish you Merry Christmas
Happy New Year too

I've just one wish
On this Christmas Eve
I wish I were with you

I wish I were with you
Merry Christmas, darling

Thank you/carpentersaddict

DreamerKind said...

For SuperRNGP:

I Heard The Bells On Christmas Day

The Carpenters:

I heard the bells on Christmas Day Their old familiar carols play, And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth,
Good will to men.

I thought how, as the day had come,
The belfries of all Christendom
Had rolled along th'un broken song
Of peace on earth,
Good will to men.

And in despair I bowed my head;
"There is no peace on earth," I said,
"For hate is strong and mocks the song
Of peace on earth,
Good will to men."

Then pealed the bells more loud and deep;
"God is not dead, nor doth he sleep;
The wrong shall fail,
The right prevail,
With peace on earth,
Good will to men."

Till, ringing singing on it's way,
The world revolved from night to day.
A voice, a chime, a chant sublime,
Of peace on earth,
Good will to men.

Thank you/NedNickerson2010

That song -- Merry Christmas Darling -- reminds me of the love of my life. He looked just like Chad Lowe when he played Jesse in Life Goes On. We had been together from 1984-1992, but hit a rough patch and broke up. I ended up marrying the wrong man but "Jesse" and I never lost touch and never really stopped loving each other. I always missed him the most at Christmas time, and this song would really make my heart ache.
On New Year's Eve 2004 I was entertaining and trying to hide my miserable marriage from my guests when this song came on. I slipped upstairs, crying my eyes out, and called "Jesse." He sounded very tired and weak, and said he thought he might have the flu. After wishing each other a Happy New Year, he told me he never stopped loving me, and wished we could have another chance. I told him I felt the same way and we made plans to get together on January 4th to talk. When I told him that a Carpenters song made me call, he said he loved me despite my atrocious taste in music.
Four days later, as I was on my way to meet him, I stopped to answer the phone. It was his brother, tellimg me that "Jesse" had had a heart attack that morning and died. He had been coming back from the store -- evidentally he had gone out to buy me the Carpenters Christmas Album CD, which they found on the floor where he had collapsed.
Everytime I hear that song, I tell that story to someone new. First of all because I have to explain why I am crying. But more importantly, I hope that anyone who hears it will realize that we never have as much time as we think, and we have to make the most of it.
This makes the 33rd time I've told it since 2004 -- thank goodness its a seasonal song.

DreamerKind said...

@real pr pro
The hardest part is in the telling, isn't it?

You get to keep the loving part, which will last longer than any song or anything. It is yours, for you and him only.

I believe that it must be spoken, as many times as you can bear, to awaken others, as you have moved me.

Thank you for sharing a love like that.

((Super long lasting hugs for you!))

Lindsey said...

Real Pr Pro,
thank you very much for sharing your story. I've been kinda down lately because tomorrow is the 1 year anniversary of my younger brother's death, but I love what you said at the end..."we never have as much time as we think, and we have to make the most of it." You reminded me that I really need to just look at all the amazing people I still have around me and make the most of my time with them. Hope you have a wonderful holiday season with those you love.
Thank you!

Tell Me Why

Declan "John" Galbraith angel voice:

In my dream children sing a song of love for every boy and girl
The sky is blue and fields are green and laughter is the language of the world
Then I wake and all I see is a world full of people in need

Tell me why (why) does it have to be like this?
Tell me why (why) is there something I have missed?
Tell me why (why) cos I don't understand.

When so many need somebody we don't give a helping hand.
Tell me why?

Everyday I ask myself what will I have to do to be a man?
Do I have to stand and fight to prove to everybody who I am?
Is that what my life is for to waste in a world full of war?

Tell me why (why) does it have to be like this?
Tell me why (why) is there something I have missed?
Tell me why (why) cos I don't understand.

When so many need somebody we don't give a helping hand.
Tell me why?

Tell me why (why, why, does the tiger run)
Tell me why (why why do we shoot the gun)
Tell me why (why, why do we never learn)
Can someone tell us why we let the forest burn?

(Why, why do we say we care)
Tell me why (why, why do we stand and stare)
Tell me why (why, why do the dolphins cry)
Can some one tell us why we let the ocean die?

(Why, why if we're all the same)
Tell me why (why, why do we pass the blame)
Tell me why (why, why does it never end)
Can some one tell us why we cannot just be friends?
Why, why?

Thank you/miniii123

Thank you for sharing your story with all of us. I hope that someday you'll be able to share it without the tears and just the good memories.

Monica said...

FUCK those haters!!~

Agree with @Sydney 2:36 and I have a theory on this. If Rob dated Nikki or Ashley or any other woman, they wouldn't have such a huge reaction cuz they would think that they're better than the girl in some way. When it comes to Kristen, they (subconsciously) know that they don't stand a chance cuz Kristen is Goddamn PERFECT!!~ Kristen has ALL what a man wants!!~ Gorgeous face, great body, flawless skin, creamy long legs, and most importantly, acting and musical talents, intelligence, maturity, genuineness, self-assurance, a nice and caring heart, a sweet and yet strong personality, etc. A PERFECT MATCH with Rob I'd say. If I was her man, I'd never let her go.

So those haters could do nothing other than spread their jealousy and bitterness all over the web. And all these things they do just have an opposite effect. Rob is more protective of Kristen b/c the existence of the hate. Don't we always hear from the reports that Rob is an attentive BF?

SUCK that haters!!~

A very big hug for you. You are keeping Jesse's spirit alive by remembering and telling the story to others. Thank you for sharing it with us. May there be peace and comfort within you as you remember him.

Taking a peek back in Roseland for a quick second...

1. For those of you who live in places of really cold weather I seriously don't know how you do it. The temps here in FL are in the upper 30's and I am freezing. I guess the good news is that it will be back up in the mid 70's by the weekend so I shouldn't complain too much b/c some of you are stuck with cold weather for awhile.

2. ELAINE! Glad to "hear" from you. Hope all is well.

3. Real PR pro- I enjoyed the comment you made about threatening people even if there is no intention of carrying it out. People need to wake up and smell the coffee and see that what is being said is being noted by those who need to know.

Also thanks for sharing your story. Life can be gone in a heartbeat. Sending virtual hugs your way.

4. Lindsey- ditto to what Kami said to you as she said it perfectly and I couldn't have said it any better.

5. Liza- hope you had a great weekend.

6. Penny- I realized I only posted one cookie recipe and it was chocolate. I'll post a non-chocolate desert recipe from Paula Deen that I love for you since you came up with this wonderful idea.

Okay headed to do some reading and then to the land of nod. Peaceful dreams Roseland.

Kay said...

Real PR Pro and Lindsey - wishing you peace, comfort and strength during this holiday season. Thank you for sharing your memories of your loved ones with us.

Only Time

Enya-haunting melody/listen:

Who can say
where the road goes
where the day flows
only time

And who can say
if your love grows
as your heart chose
only time

Who can say
why your heart sighs
as your love flies
only time

And who can say
why your heart cries
when your love lies
only time

Who can say
when the roads meet
that love might be
in your heart

And who can say
when the day sleeps
if the night keeps
all your heart

Night keeps all your heart

Who can say
if your love grows
as your heart chose
only time

And who can say
where the road goes
where the day flows
only time

Thank you/catnatty

No one here to guide you

Half-way through the wood

Others may decieve you
You decide what's good

You decide alone
But no one is alone

People make mistakes
Father's, Mother's
People make mistakes

Holding to their own
Thinking they're alone

Honor their mistakes
Everybody makes
One another's terrible mistakes

Witches can be right
Giants can be good

You decide what's right
You decide what's good
Just remember

Someone is on your side
Someone else is not

Well we're seeing our side
Maybe we forgot

They are not alone
Cause no one is alone

Hard to see the light now
Just don't let it go

Things will come out right now
We can make it so

Someone is on your side
No one is alone

Some other sport then let him bring,
That it may please at this feasting,
For now is the time of Christëmas.

3. If he say he can naught do,
Then for my love ask him no mo,
But to the stocks then let him go,
For now is the time of Christëmas.

Roselanders at Late Night...

DreamerKind said...

For Smitty & Gruff:

My Master & Dame, I Well Perceive

My master and dame, I well perceive,
Are purposed to be merry to-night,

And willingly hath given me leave
To combat with a Christmas knight.

Sir Pig, I see, comes prancing in
And bids me draw if that I dare;

I care not for his valour a pin,
For Jack of him will have a share.

My Lady Goose among the rest
Upon the table takes her place,

And piping-hot bids do my best,
And bravely looks me in the face;
For pigs and geese are gallant cheer,

God bless my master and dame therefore!
I trust before the next New Year
To eat my part of half a score.

I likewise see good minced-pie
Here standing swaggering on the table;

The lofty walls so large and high
I'll level down if I be able;

For they be furnished with good plums,
And spiced well with pepper and salt,

Every prune as big as both my thumbs
To drive down bravely the juice of malt.

Fill me some of your Christmas beer,
Your pepper sets my mouth on heat,

And Jack's a-dry with your good cheer,
Give me some good ale to my meat.

And then again my stomach I'll show,
For good roast-beef here stoutly stands;

I'll make it stoop before I go,
Or I'll be no man of my hands.

And for the plenty of this house
God keep it thus well-stored alway;

Come, butler, fill me a good carouse,
And so we'll end our Christmas day.

Happy Christmastime from Roseland, Late Night....

DreamerKind said...

For Rose:

Of A Rose, A Lovely Rose
And Of A Rose I Sing A Song

1. Hearken to me, both old and ying,
How a rose began to spring;
A fairer rose to my liking
Sprang there never in kinges land.

2. Six branches are on that rose beam,
They be both bright and sheen;
The rose is called Mary, heaven's queen,
Of her bosom a Blossom sprang.

3. The first branch was of great might,
That sprang on Christmas night.
The star [3] shone over Bethlehem bright,
That men might see both broad and long.

4. The second branch was of great honour,
That was sent from heaven's tower;
Blessed be that fair flower,
Break it shall the fiendes bonds.

5. The third branch wide spread,
Where Mary lay in her bed;
The bright star three kinges led
To Bethlehem, where that branch they found.

6. The fourth branch sprang into hell,
The fiendes boast for to fell,
There might no soule therein dwell,
Blessed be that time that branch sprang.

7. The fifth branch was fair in foot,
It sprang to heaven, top and root,
There to dwell and be our bote4
And yet is seen in priestes hands.

8. The sixth branch by and by,
It is the five joys of mild Mary.
Now Christ save all this company,
And send us good life and long!

Late Night, Roselanders, Merry Wishes, Rose!

For Bren, Gwen, Birdie & Louisa & My Roselander Pals:

Getting To Know You

James Taylor gets you/listen:

Getting to know you, getting to know all about you.
Getting to like you, getting to hope you like me.

Getting to know you, putting it my way,
But nicely,

You are precisely,
My cup of tea.

Getting to know you,
Getting to feel free and easy

When I am with you,
Getting to know what to say

Haven't you noticed
Suddenly I'm bright and breezy

Because of all the beautiful and new
Things I'm learning about you
Day by day.

Sharing your spirit,
Sharing your tears and your laughter

Hoping it goes on,
Hoping it lasts endlessly

Getting to know you, putting it my way,
But sweetly,

You are completely,
My friend you see.

Telling you my dreams,
Getting to feel that you're with me

Making our own fun,
Knowing we know how to play

Now that I've met you
Suddenly I'm mostly happy

I've found new pals, beautiful and true
Yes I'm talking about you

Thank you/skagirl42

Do you like the job, but don't like her.....or do you dislike both?

Dreamer, did you finish decorating?

@Bren & Gwen

Those were English traditional songs and words from the fifteenth century. Seemed appropriate tonight for some reason.

And, I was thinking about how much Syd, Smitty and Gruff have added, to our good times, good spirits and have been our overall best buddies of Roseland and to us all, don't you think?


Sigh, I'm sentimental tonight, I know, but aren't you?

Bren said...

I totally agree with you about Smitty, Gruff, and Syd....

I wish they'd come around more often...I miss them...

I do wish them peace and joy this holiday season...

gwen said...


im waiting for DK to play 'killing me softly' to me, lol.

i love the job, but they are times that i cant tolerate her. Guess im a very very patient person, lol.

Sentimental Journey

Ringo Starr-so good/listen:

Gonna take a sentimental journey,
Gonna set my heart at ease.

Gonna make a sentimental journey,
To renew old memories.

I've got my bag and got my reservation,
Spent each dime I could afford.

Like a child in wild anticipation,
Long to hear that "all aboard!"

Seven, (seven)
That's the time we leave,
At seven. (seven)

I'll be waiting out for heaven, (heaven)
Counting ev'ry mile of railroad track
That takes me back.

Never thought my heart could be so yearning,
Why did I decide to roam?

Got to take this sentimental journey,
Sentimental journey home.

I said at seven,
That's the time we leave,
At seven.

I'll be waiting out for heaven,
Counting ev'ry mile of railroad track
That takes me back.

I never thought my heart could be so yearning,
Why did I decide to roam?

Got to take this sentimental journey,
Sentimental journey home.

Thank you/mac3079

Your wish is my command, and if you want that song, consider it played.

You are a very patient young lady, that is one of your most outstanding qualities.

Hey, won't mother/father, and the many brothers help you to save for pastry school? Or have you checked on student loans or financial aid, cause if you graduate from there, I will come and visit you.


Bren said...

Very good Bells, a step in the right direction...

Do you know what my word verif. is URPSXX, what the hell is that...

DreamerKind said...


That is so easy to interpret:

URP is "urp"

SXX is "sicks

You urp, you get sicks.

A no brainer for those who drink cocktails and/or grasshoppers in honor of Birdie's Creme de Menthe.

Or in my case, in honor of putting up the pink Christmas tree but it looks dorky so I must move it and ratch up the glitz. Ya know what I mean?

DreamerKind said...

@Bren & Gwen
There are ugly rumors spreading about me (spreading like wildfire) that I am not as silly nor as funny as I think I am.

RUMORS, that I am an old, fart-ridden, fluffy, woman, with too much time on her hands, and so isn't it pathetic?

Well, ain't that a kick in the pants?

DreamerKind said...

@Bren & Gwen,
Not to get ooogly, on a lovely night like this, but why not?

It ain't easy being green and don't we all know it?

Oh, I feel a song coming on, and Smitty might call me the Song Queen again, (love it) but I can't help my nature, can I?

Bren said...

LOL...that's funny...

Does the tree have pink lights?

I forgot to tell you a funny thing that happened at the xmas party....you guys remember the story of mirror, mirror on the wall? well, we're all sitting in a big group..everyone talking and laughing...and one of the husband's says so, which one is the mirror? and the other husband laughs and says I already asked she's the one over there in the black dress...isn't that hilarious...

Bren said...

More like a kick in the ass, you're kidding right? Otherwise I have to hunt them down for you.

Bells, are you still hanging?

gwen said...


LOL and i guess half of that rumor is true

DreamerKind said...

While My Guitar Gently Weeps

Santana/Indie.Arie & Yo-Yo Ma


I look at you all
See the love there that's sleeping
While my guitar gently weeps

I look at the floor
And I see it needs sweeping
Still my guitar gently weeps

I don't know why nobody told you
How to unfold your love

I don't know how someone controlled you
They bought and so-old you

I look at the world
And I notice it's turning
While my guitar gently weeps

(With) every mistake
We must surely be learning
Still my guitar gently weeps

I don't know how you were diverted
You were perverted too
I don't know how you were inverted
No-one alerted you

I look at you all
See the love there that's sleeping
While my guitar gently weeps

Look at you all
Still my guitar gently weeps

Thank you/santanofficial

DreamerKind said...

Don't think for one moment that I will let that remark pass. Which half and tell me now?

DreamerKind said...

Are you saying that the hubsters (thanks Tracy) are aware of the mirror from your comments on Roseland?

DreamerKind said...

What an insightful question...I don't know if the lights are pink or white. All I noticed is that the wire are very, very pink and I was hypontized by that. Will have to check.


DreamerKind said...

In all fairness, the fart-ridden rumor, would apply per the White Castle remark of yesteryore and as I am related to my brother, who is the restauranteurs nightmare for being seated at crowded tables, so don't brush against him events, for farts will be blasted upon one.

(I do sound a tad insane tonight, and I verify those rumors, right now.)

Bren said...

No sillybilly, their wives work with me and told them the story....
Just like R knew the story....

gwen said...


Hmm...i think your fluffy as in soft, light or frivolous way. Im thinking of a cuddly object here. You have too much time in many ways(dont let me elaborate coz i cant think of any, lol) though you're not pathetic.

DreamerKind said...

What a relief, since I was thinking that fame went to our heads and that it had spread to your co-workers, like G who lurks but doesn't write, and that R. had told the men, when they were off smoking doobies, that the one in the black dress was the Mirror!

Bren said...

I forgot to tell you, I did find a black ascot....

gwen said...

no not frivolous, i would guess, silly(sometimes for me) would be more apt, lol.

DreamerKind said...

I am so relieved! You have described exactly the kind of fluffy and how not pathetic I actually am, you see! Kisses on your lovely cheek, dear Gwen.

Not only am I not pathetic but some think that I am hot....

Last night, one of the owners of the Jokers Bar told me so, now one could say that he was truly in another world, but why would one, say that? Not me, I didn't.

I am my own mirror, and it is the Magic Mirror from Snow White, let there by no question about that, and after her, I am the fairest, fluffy or not.

Bren said...

you guys wanna play a game?

gwen said...


are you experiencing extreme snow now? Wish we have that, been wondering what it would be feel like. Of course it would be impossible that would snow here, lol.

DreamerKind said...

Those ascots are classic for a never out of fashion wardrobe.

Silly is soulful, baby.

Oh, you two, and the other owner Danny said he is "thinkin' to fix me up with L." who is in his late fifties and "has a beautiful house". As if I can be had for a beautiful house!

They are all in a conspiracy to keep me in this hick area by making someone fall in love, as if!

"I’m the world’s most dangerous predator. Everything about me invites you in. My voice, my face, even my smell. As if I would need any of that. As if he could outrun me. As if he could fight me off. I’m designed to love."

Or, something like that...

DreamerKind said...

What game, not MFK? I am too devastated with the Zac/Vanessa and Scarlett/Ryan and Michael Hall love troubles to play superficial, fantasy lovers, mock me, mock them, games.

Bren said...

Some of the northeast is experiencing snow...I think DK had some this week, I live in the southwest and the weather has been fantastic here, the forecast for Thursday is chance of rain, I don't know why....it hasn't rained in months...LOL

DK says she doesn't know if it snows in Chicago because she never looks out the window...LOL

gwen said...

"I’m the world’s most dangerous predator.
Everything about me invites you in. My voice,
my face, even my smell. As if I would need any
of that. As if he could outrun me. As if he could
fight me off. I ’m designed to love."

LOL, you sillybilly. Wont you try another chance at love? Or are you waiting for your Edward?

DreamerKind said...

Mark these words! You will have record low temps in NM and snow in January. If you want to bet a hundo, then let's for I will win.

DK, only looks out of the windows to see snow or whatever is out there, before her very eys, and does not listen to weather news, you billy of the highest order.

Bren said...

Isn't there something we can play, that doesn't involve fucking someone.. but by the same token it has to be fun...

DreamerKind said...

Gasp! Waiting for my Edward?
I've already had him.

I'm thinking that I may have some oomph left for maybe Jasper, Emmett but definitely for Charlie, the curmudgeon, and most likely, indefatigable lover.

That's the ticket...

Bren said...

Ok Edward squared we get your drift...very funny...

gwen said...


are you tired playing with someone you like/love to fuck or tired fucking someone?LOL

DreamerKind said...

Can't think of a thing to play, fun or otherwise, when Billy is on my mind and in my....

DreamerKind said...

@B & G
You took so lightly, what I said about HW couples breaking up.

Well, I meant that I am low, low about that, and don't want to play at HW fucking, marrying or killing, as it is too real for me and no comfort tonight.

We could finish each other's sentences, that might be fun.

Bren said...

seems DK is tired of like/love to fuck someone....

me, I'm just tired...period.

what about you?

what is AMEWEEN--is that I'm a weenie?

DreamerKind said...

No, it means you are a WEEner-winner!

So, go to bed, slowpoke.

I'll finish my own sentences as I could have danced all .....

gwen said...

Yeah its sad for HW couples this year, so many break-ups.

Bren said...


You are really down in the dumps about Zac, Ryan, and Michael...well you know shit happens....at least all the fairy tale couples are still together.LOL

DreamerKind said...

Did I tell you two mopes, that my heat went off for over two hours last night? It was getting cold in here (around 6am) and so I poked around looking for the problem.

Being the techno wiz that I am, I set and reset the digital thermometer to no avail.

Then I went to look at the junction box (?) and nothing.

So, I decided to take a real chance and I flipped the furnace switch off and then on.

Sure, you know the ending, the heat came on.

But Sherlock Holmes is needed, for why did it switch off to begin with, for what cause and will it do so when I least expect it (yes, it will for sure)?

I was already getting excited about staying at a local hotel, swimming in the pool and having continental breakfast, on my landlord, until the dang furnace kicked on.

Maybe it will blow on the coldest day of winter, if I am lucky.

DreamerKind said...

@Bren & Gwen
Why can't we go out to breakfast right now?

I sure could go for some pancakes and sausages, coffee and grits.

Where could we meet, somewhere in-between that would be fair to all and that is in the same timezone?

DreamerKind said...

When marriages fail, or love ends, it is a failure for all of us.

Back in the olden days, marriages were supported by the community and even the very society of the whole country. Now we expect too little and shrug our shoulders, when marriage falls short.

I believe in marriage and love.

Scarlett won't be alone for long, I'b bet 2 hundo on that, and I'd win.

The pink tree has white lights, is that karma or something?

gwen said...

Hmm...pancakes, sausages,coffee for breakfast, yummy.

Bren said...

I'm all for breakfast, somewhere between me and you would be like Kansas...now gwen is an entirely different story..

HYPOGGIT--I guess the hypo got it...

DreamerKind said...

You and I know that Bren is fading fast and will be the first to leave, don't we?

Yes, eggs poached for me, also. How do you like your eggs?

DreamerKind said...

Hippo got it!

gwen said...



Im waiting for Bren to say nite nite any minute now, though its already morning, lol

DreamerKind said...


Before I forget this point...

Syd wrote a damn funny, witty, profoundly something, something, poem for Roseland, and I'd bet he didn't even have any Southern Comfort, to comfort him, while in the creative process!

Too little has been said (considering the source of who is writing this) of his heroic effort and Smitty's wise/proficient editing (when she could or Syd would let her).

So let's say it now:

Bravo, salute, gadzooks, gobsmacking, exceptional act of friendship and support, duo of Smitty and Syd, par excellence.

Too much, too flowery, not enough, not nearly enough. It is what it is, and it is marvelous, darlings.


gwen said...

that would be a prob, where would we meet, probly somewhere in Africa.

DreamerKind said...

It is morning, but "any minute" still applies for we all have 60 minutes in every hour, no matter where in the world we live, yes?

Hard? "Easy to be hard, easy to say No.".

Bren said...


Good show, old boy!....


Africa it is....

DreamerKind said...

End of Lovefest for Smitty & Syd:

Love Train

Wolfmother old tyme/new time:

What'd you see, girl, on the love train?
I said, what'd you see, girl, on the love train now?
I said I gotta get back, girl, on the love train, oh
I said I gotta get back, girl, on the love train, oh

I saw different faces and different places
I gotta get back, girl, on the love train, oh
I saw different faces and different places
I gotta get back, girl, on the love train, oh

What'd you see, girl, on the love train?
She had different lockets with no name
Tellin' me all things all the same
I said I gotta get back, girl, on the love train

I saw different faces and different places
I gotta get back, girl, on the love train, oh

I saw different faces and different places
I gotta get back, girl, on the love train, oh
I saw different faces, different places
I gotta get back, girl, on the love train, oh

Love, love, love, love, love
Love, love, love, love

Thank you/JulianThomePictures

DreamerKind said...

Jolly good time old Pip, wasn't it Old Man?

Bren said...

I was right in the middle of telling you, I didn't think Scarlett is that great...kind of dumb, after all she left the sexiest man alive...LOL

The computer is set to update...so that is where I have been, well this is just in case anyone noticed..

Birdie said...

Good morning ladies!
I hope I have caught you all before going to bed.

DreamerKind said...

I could meet you two in Africa, and we can go on safari, and have breakfast in the wild, with the giraffes and zebras mulling around us, begging for crumpets.

DreamerKind said...

We are going to Africa for breakfast together, want to join us?

Birdie said...

Africa? Man, I don't have a passport!

gwen said...


well, i kinda surprise 'bout Scarlet and Ryan, though Zac and Vanessa, not so coz lately i see a pics of them together, there is no spark anymore. They're young, they will meet another person to love.

DreamerKind said...

Nah, we didn't noticed, just went on and on about how you were probably sleeping at the table on with the laptop on R's backside.

Scarlett is an incredibly gifted and beautiful actress. Now personally, I do not know her, but of course you do and can make those kind of comments.

Ryan, Ryan who? We all know that Rob is the SMA, bar none.


DreamerKind said...

I don't have a current passport either, but for only $150 we can get a quick process through and meet for breakfast in a month!

Or we can do the post office, $95 and go in two months.

If I had taken that $10G from that man at the restaurant last week, I'd pay to renew all of our passports and give Gwen $1000 toward pastry school. Too bad, so sad.

Bren said...

I see you guys were talking about me, behind my back....

ok let's analyze this departure...I woke up at 8am...it is now 3:45 am. my time...

DK, woke up probably around 4pm...it is now 4:45am her time...

gwen is at the end of her work day, she had a full night's sleep...

Now tell me, it is not hard to figure out...who is it among us that has gone without the most sleep...

gwen said...


Good one, wouldnt it be exciting, we having and enjoying breakfast then lions and other predators stalking, waiting for us as their breakfast, lol.

Hello Birdie. Its time for you to get a passport then.

Bren said...

Yes, I do know Scarlett personally, and she ain't that great...I wish you knew stars also, but unfortunately you don't..LOL

But maybe one day....

Birdie said...

I am browsing through the comments.
Bren, I see you finished the wreath and celebrated with a grasshopper. Now you get a pass on cookie baking for Christmas this year, right?

gwen said...


oh! I had only 4hrs sleep today. I went to bed at 3am then woke up at 7am for work. And now im still here talking w/ you guys, lol. I should probly sleep early today.

What is derwtly? Thats my verif word.

Bren said...


Yes to all of the above....isn't it wonderful...

How are you fine lady? are you guys still freezing...

SQUISHR----squish her?

DreamerKind said...

It means der (duh,you're) wtly (witty). Simple for me to get them.

Bren said...
This comment has been removed by the author.
DreamerKind said...

Yep, that was it and will you be squished tonight, after hardly any sleep, poor lambie, who barely gets any shut eye?

Birdie said...

I've been trying to catch up, so much material tonight.
Yes it is cold here but not as bad as it will get. I am going to try to go cross country skiing, but my fingers get so cold.
Gwen, I bet you read PR PRO's sad story. It sounds like you are working towards your goal. Live in the moment!
DK, so I can't tell. Do you like that pink tree?

DreamerKind said...

Unless you mean Richard Prince and Cindy Sherman, I don't know who you are talking about.

It is true, you are the stars friend and I am only Rob & Kristen's personal massage therapist, par excellence yet unknown.

I just missed being Oprah's MT about 6 years ago, at a ritzy spa, but I turned the job down, fool that I was.

DreamerKind said...

Not yet! The pink tree is as of tonight, still raw and uninspired, being without ornaments and garlands, nor the right stand or treeskirt.

It is scrawny, too, and must be filled out with strands of microwaved (will not kill you this way) popcorn.

Any other ideas?

Bren said...

Plz tell us that story...why did you turn it down, did you think you were not good enough?LOL

gwen said...


you're a smart ass one, lol. Should eat more peanuts.

Oh this one is good, 'bunbalm'
