Rob and Kristen- How to Out-Waldo Waldo

A Kiss is just a Kiss. ;)

Is there anything left to say... really?

New Years Eve.
Probably at midnight.
Rob and Kristen.
Oh and just a little pic to show that

I couldn't possibly go into all the 
(More like DENIAL Theories)
that are still floating around.
Well... I could...
I don't know.
It all seems so unfair now.
Like I'm really making fun of sad, deluded crazies.
And that doesn't seem right.
This picture really made them completely crack up.
They have totally lost it.

You guys go right ahead and keep telling yourself
whatever it is that helps you handle the truth.
It's OK.
Good Luck with that.
 *head pat*

Such a shame to hide that pretty face.

Would it be wrong of me to actually be more excited to see Tom
in the NYE picture?
All beardy and scruffy.
I like how when a picture of Rob and Kristen kissing is released
Tom always manages to be around.
Is he their good luck charm?
Do they figure all eyes are really on Tom
so they can get a quick smooch in?
I know where my eyes went immediately.

Rob and Kristen kissing?
Old news.
Tom with a beanie and scruffy?

Could 2011 BE any better so far??


This is how I picture Rob and Kristen if they read
some of the bullshit that is constantly spewed about them.
Laughing their asses off.
Because as far as comedy goes...
This is some good shit.

Yes. You are an idiot.

Closing thoughts.

1. Kristen will be at the PCA's tomorrow.
Will Robert show up?
Who knows.
But there is always hope... yes?
Sometimes I just think dealing with all the drama
that erupts everytime they are seen together
isn't worth it.
But I would love to see Rob and Kristen show up together...
Not gonna lie.
2. Rob and Kristen spent the holidays together.
And it was sealed with a

3. And can I just say how impressed I am with their airport Ninja skills?
In and out with nary a trace.
Just a few random twitters here and there.

Rob and Kristen can out-Waldo Waldo.

This post is brought to you by the letter *C*
C for
All the howling about 
But I will now proceed to write a novel
just telling you how much I don't care.
Just so you see how important it is for me
to know that you know...
That I don't care.

You care.
Thanks for the laughs.
As always.

Bye for now

I can't imagine 2011 getting any better but oh it will..we have tons of great movies being released with a few of our favorite people acting in them! It is just getting sad at this point that people are still denying they are together. CRAZY! I saw that Rob has been added to the PCA's guest list..hope its true! Then we can oogle them together at a public event!

May said...

NGL, Rob and Kris are the true ninja wonders. LOL

2011 has been cool so far. Hopefully, the pattern will continue.;

I say... PCA, BRING IT ON. :D

Penny Lane said...

So the PCA's are tomorrow. I admit I hope Rob turns up just to hear their leaders scrambling to come up with new PR theories.


Congratulations! You truly deserve that crown.

Rhonda said...

Hi Rose,

Nice post today, as always. I'm loving the Waldo reference..too cute!
I guess some people just can't handle the truth..or maybe, it's just that they refuse to accept the truth. The thing about truth is it's established, it's a principle, it conforms with fact and reality. The truth with regards to Rob and Kristen has been so evident for so long now.I'm amazed it's still up for debate. How long will people continue to live outside of what's real?

Thanks Rose for always keeping it real :)

Rhonda said...

Hi Penny- How are you? Did I tell you I ordered the tea book?

Kami said...

Penny, thank you I love the crown...it fits perfectly!!!

angelica1 said...

I shouldn't enjoy the thought of the delusionals drowning in a pool of their own venom but I'm prepared to make an exception just this once :)

Freddie said...

Hey Rose and Roselanders,

I confess I’d like to see them together at the PCA’s tomorrow, but if it doesn’t happen, that’s okay too. I really just hope that they had a great vacation and are feeling rejuvenated for the New Year. Additionally, I hope they are blissfully oblivious to, and untouched by the nonsense going on around them.

Hi Rhonda and Penny – hope you are both well.
Rhonda – I hope you’re enjoying the first of a few well deserved days off. Enjoy.

IB - I hope the transition back to work wasn't too painful.

Have a good day everyone.

Rhonda said...

Hi Angelica- Very true..they are in rather deep!

Hi Freddie- Thank you. Yes, it's great to have some time off. How's the computer doing?

Hope said...

Kristen will bring the house down tomorrow night when she steps on stage to accept her award(s).

Just saw the seating arrangement for the PCA's and the lovebirds are sitting next to each other...YAY!!!

Hey Kami, Angelica, Rhonda, Penny, Freddie and all...

Kami said...

great post Rose

Rhonda said...

Hi Hope and Kami :)

Freddie said...

Hi Angelica and Kami.

Angelica - hope you are having a good day. Are you back to work today?

Kami - stay strong. As you kindly said to me the other day - don't let Medusa(the troll with the many monikers) bring you down.

Hey Hope - did you get the snow you were hoping for?

Kami said...

Hi Rhonda, Freddie, and Hope...Hope please tell me it's not snowing in Texas....I'll cry.

Thanks for the kind words Freddie.

Sydney said...

Yeah, so my New Year's Resolution lasted like two days. I did look at some nonnie stuff today when Rob was confirmed to be going to the PCA's. I just can't stay away, it's so freaking hilarious. Predictably, this is all Summit's doing.

The thing is...you know they know. It's so obvious...the level of panic and explaining away is so transparent. They're ALREADY justifying anything that MAY happen. It's seriously all I can do not to write them on twitter. They were talking about how it's just another opportunity to ignore Kristen in public? I mean, truly, you have changed history with that one. I could @ them with about 200 pictures showing exactly just how much attention Rob pays her in public, but what good would do?

Anyone seen Black Swan? I think we're literally dealing with that level of hallucination.

I wish it was the 5th. Can't wait to see the red carpet.

Sydney said...


Saw the comments from yesterday with what's-her-face. I think you handled yourself beautifully. I'm glad you guys were around to see through it so quickly and handle the troll so ably.

angelica1 said...

Hi Kami,Penny,Rhonda,Hope

Hi Freddie -Yes,it's been a loonnnng day!!

Rhonda said...

Kami- I'm sorry you've probably spoken about this before and I just missed it..but what part of the south are you originally from?

Hope said...

Kami and Freddie...

NO it is not snowing...our family is PRAYING for snow because we love it and do not get enough of it here in Dallas. So....for Kendall's sake...keep your fingers crossed.

Kami...check email

Rhonda said...

Hi Sydney- I'm excited about the PCA's too. I wonder what she will wear? You know she will look stunning!

Freddie said...

Hi Rhonda - no I haven't solved the problem with my PC. My brother, the technical expert in the family, thinks there's some corruption in some files and that the best thing would be reload the entire platform, which is something I've never done. I'm a system user not someone who configures PC's. So I'm hoping I can work around it by limiting the applications I use at a time.

We'll see. If you hear loud screaming coming from up north, it will be me. LOL.

DixieAnn said...

Rose, you are a national treasure.

Rhonda said...

Freddie- Lol..I definitely couldn't do it. I'm a little technically challenged!

Sydney said...

Rhonda: DKNY had twittered a few weeks ago that they were dressing Kristen for some event(s). Could be this one. I love her style, so can't wait to see what she ends up wearing. And of course, how his Holy Hotness will look.

I hope Honey shows up today with one of her classic predictions. Please Honey, tell us they won't pose on the Red Carpet together.

Freddie said...

Angelica - that's what I will be feeling on Thursday when I head back. Not looking forward to it.

Sydney - you are a glutton for punishment, braving those other sites. LOL. Thanks for taking one for the team.

Super RN Gas Passer said...

ROSE!!!! Brilliant and Snarky, and Sparkly, and Clever, and True, and Funny!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

RHONDA...I am from the South also, but I would rather stay here with my Southern accent (you can ask DK about my voice) than to be in the Foamers shoes for 2 seconds! Really, the weather is nice most of the time...the worst thing about the South is the humidity and the mosquitos in the Summer!!! lol at the Trolls!!!

KAMI...I adore you!!!! I will have to go back and read the rest of yesterdays posts but you rock and yes, I am all in favor of you receiving a CROWN!

FREDDIE..Hello dear one and I hope you have a great week and the rest of ROSELAND as well... Gotta go to work BYE!!!

Rhonda said...

Sydney- DKNY is good. She has developed her own unique style..I love it! As for Robert..well, we know he's going to be spectacular!

Sydney said...

Freddie, I know. But it's just their twitter pages. Seriously, it's actually just funny. I love to go when things like this happen. It's so fun to watch them mobilize and literally talk each other off the ledge. They're always referring to "the forum," their nonsten site and how one of the regs there has to calm them down. Talk about sheep.

Rhonda said...

Hi Super- Have a good night at work. I agree with you..I'm proud to be from the South!

Freddie said...

Hey Super RN, you sound very chipper today. Hope you are having a good one.

Rhonda said...

Wish I could stay and chat with everyone but I have to step out for a little while.....

Bye everyone

angelica1 said...

Sydney - They remind me of that line from Alice in Wonderland about believing as many as 6 impossible things before breakfast:)

Kami said...

Rhonda I am a Texan, living in Kansas right now.

Thanks for all the support everyone, sometimes I'm too hotheaded for my own good...but..Southern born southern bred and proud of it!

DixieAnn said...

I am a Texan as well.:) Always have been.

Melinda said...

Hi all! Hope the day is treating you well.

Foamaggedon is definitely happening. People have lost their ever loving minds. Although not convinced that they have a mind to start with.

Glad that Rob is going to be at the PCA's. I'm going to have to be honest and say that I'm more excited to see what Kristen is wearing! Woman knows how to rock some great clothes. :)

Wanted to add that I'm happy to see that some misunderstandings have been cleared up. I really hope that none of us let Medusa get the better of us. I also hope that we don't allow her hate agenda to get us fussing at/with each other. She is so not worth it. Roseland is a great place where friends can chat with one another when they want to.

Gotta get back to work. Have a great rest of the evening if I don't get back on here.

katy said...

Hi, Rose!! Great post as always.

Hatters have to change their record because is getting old...same shit different day...SO annoying.

I'm really happy that Rob is going to the PCA's. BIG smile.

Hi, AR, May, Penny, Freddie, Kami, Hope, Sydney, Angelica, Melinda, RN. Rhonda, Dixie, Hope you are all having a great day!

Hugs to all

Happy Tuesday! I'm missing you, my Roseland friends in these crazy-busy days! :)

Nice post Rose :)

Rhonda said...

Hi Everyone...just popping in for a few minutes.

Hi Katy- Sorry I missed you earlier. I hope you're doing well :)

Freddie- I'm still listening for the screams :)

Penny Lane said...


I hope you enjoy the book. Tea is that man's passion so read it with that knowledge.


You mentioned computer problems. A hard drive reformat may be what you need. I know it sounds daunting but if you go to your manufacturer's website you can usually find info on how to do it. There is an order to the reloading of software and drivers. I've done it several times. If you do undertake it, give yourself several hours of no distractions and you should be fine.

Open Up Your Heart
(And Let The Sunshine In)

The Lancers take on the devil:

Mommy told me something
a little kid should know.
It's all about the devil
and I've learned to hate him so.

She said he causes trouble
when you let him in the room.
He will never ever leave you
if your heart is filled with gloom.

So let the sun shine in
face it with a grin.
Smilers never lose
and frowners never win.

So let the sun shine in
face it with a grin
Open up your heart and let the sun shine in.

When you are unhappy,
the devil wears a grin
But oh, he starts to running
when the light comes pouring in

I know he'll be unhappy
'Cause I'll never wear a frown
Maybe if we keep on smiling
He'll get tired of hanging 'round.

If I forget to say my prayers
the devil wears a grin.
But he feels so awful awful
when he sees me on my knees

So if you're full of trouble
and you never seem to win,
Just open up your heart and let the sun shine in.

So let the sun shine in
face it with a grin.
Smilers never lose
and frowners never win.

So let the sun shine in
face it with a grin
Open up your heart and let the sun shine in.

Thank you/mustangcats

Rhonda said...

Hi Penny- Thanks..I'm hoping to get lots of useful info from it. I will let you know what I think :)

Rhonda said...

Hi DK- Hope you are happy and well :)

DreamerKind said...

Thanks so much for asking! I am well and happy and am encouraging others that are not, who visit here, to let the sunshine in, lol!

Always is so good to see you here.


Rhonda said...

DK- Yes, after the last couple days..we need lots of sunshine! Lol.. Thank you so much for always spinning us some cheery tunes. You are the best!

Would love to hang with you sometime on the nightshift :)

SueBee said...

Popping in to say hello. I have absolutely nothing intelligent to add to the comments.

Just tossing around some affection.
Hello, my friends. :o)

SueBee said...

Heyyyyy! We're giving out crowns????


Rhonda said...

Hi Susan- Is it okay if I call you that? I don't think we've talked before.

Crowns? That's what I was thinking. Sign me up for one!

DreamerKind said...

Join the Dance
(Will You? Won't You?)

John Dyer joins the dance:

Will you walk a little faster?
Said a whiting to a snail
There's a porpoise close behind us
And he's trodding on my tail.

See how eagerly the lobsters
And the turtles all advance.
They are waiting on the shingle.
Will you come and join the dance?

Will you, won't you,
Will you, won't you,
Will you, won't you, will you,
Join the dance?

You can really have no notion
How delightful it will be
When they take us out and throw us
With the lobsters out to sea

But the snail replied too far, too far
And gave a look askance
Said he thanked the whiting kindly
But he would not join the dance

Would not , could not,
Would not could not, could not,
Join the dance.

What matters it how far we go?
His scaley friend replied,
There is another shore you know

Upon the other side,
Further off from England
Than nearer is still France

And turn not pale
Be not a snail
But come and join the dance.

Will you, won't you,
Will you, won't you,
Will you, won't you, will you,
Join the dance?

(Alice In Wonderland)
Thank you/execeddir

MLH414 said...


Great post as always. I am continually impressed by their super ninja skills!! They amaze me by how they can get in and out of airports "un-papped."

Kristen is going to rock her dress tomorrow! And, I heard that Rob is going now... "Robsten Bubble!!"

Hope that everyone had a great day!!


DreamerKind said...

Join the nightshift anytime!

Kami said...

I was lucky enough to get a crown, but I have to warn you, they are hard to get and painful to wear on ocassion.

Rhonda said...

Hi Kami- I wanted to tell you I've been to Texas a few times. San Antonio and Houston. I especially liked San Antonio. The River Walk was awesome!

I Double Dare You

Al Bowlly-1930's:

to lend me your ear

Take off your high hat

Don't be a scaredy cat

Hey, whaddaya care?
Can't cha take a dare?

I double dare you
to kiss me and then

to kiss me again

To fall in love with me
I double dare you

LIZ said...

Hi all!!!

I am BEYOND EXCITED about the PCA's tomorrow night and I don't care what the hyenas are going to say, just don't care, won't let them ruin my fun at seeing them, even if (and they probably won't) they don't show any PDA. I just hope we'll get to see them smiling and happy AND hopefully get to see them receive some awards.

Super RN Gas Passer said...

LIZ and DK, RHONDA, and anybody else I missed....Just checkin in...looks like the troll is licking her wounds tonight...lol

Rhonda said...

Hi Super :) Hope your night is going well

Super RN Gas Passer said...

RHONDA...Yeah, I just got home from work...hope to not need to go back in but Im on call so if an emergency comes up, I will have to go..How has your day been?

Birdie said...

Hello everyone!
What fun, Rob and Kristen
together for our viewing pleasure. I don't typically watch the PCA's, but will be tuned in tomorrow. I love to see what she will wear. For as chill as Kristen is when it comes to fashion, she is an amazing beauty and definitely has style. And Rob, I don't really care what he wears, just enjoy seeing him.

30 said...

Hi Rhonda! Hello DK my friend and everyone else! :)

I hope all is quiet and well here in Roseland. :) I am super excited too see Rob,Kristen and TL tomorrow. That's how we should see them, at awards shows strutting there stuff. I bet Miss Stewart is going too look HOT as hell in her dress, those legs that go on forever. I love too watch the way Rob "tries" to hide the "I Want you right now looks" towards her. So cute!

Rhonda said...

Super- My day has been great..thanks for asking. I understand about the on call. I experience it about once a week :)

Rhonda said...

Hi 30, Birdie- Really excited about it too..they will be great!

I Want My Crown

Kevin Coyne/listen here:

Well, I've done the best I can
I want my crown

Yea, I done the best I can
I want my crown

Everybody in the neighborhood
Say that boy's been good

Yes, I done the best I can
I want my crown

Oh, I done the best I can
Now write this down

Yes, I done the best I can
Write this down
I want my crown

Now, you might be thinking
I'm feeling sick and down

Everybody knows, they know
I've got some get up and go

I done the best I can
Now give me my crown

Some people they might say
I've had my day

I done the best I can
I want my crown

Yes, I want my crown

Thank you/sbritt

Super RN Gas Passer said...

GUYS..Unless the end of the world comes I WILL be glued to the TV to see R&K...I cant wait...and YES, she will rock in whatever she wears...such a beautiful young lady and so talented!!!!

Rhonda said...

30- Yes, the way he looks at her..sigh..

30 said...

Whats going on with the "Crown" passing? What do I have too do too get one also? LOL

30 said...

Rhona, It's that young first passionate love, nothing beats that in life. :)

DreamerKind said...

@Birdie, 30, Super, Kami, Liz, Lynn
Hi, there, Buds!

Should be fun to gaze at the Duo and watch them strut, as you said.

Super RN Gas Passer said...

HI DK!!!! Whats up?

DreamerKind said...


You have to sing that song I posted "I Want My Crown", thirty times a day for thirty days and I'll award you a crown, promise!

SueBee said...

Hi, Rhonda. Yes, absolutely, you can call me Susan. :o)

Nice to become acquainted!

Kami, I have a tiara and a helmet around here somewhere.....

30 said...

HI Super!

I agree, I am not missing it either! Now, they better win, I voted my fingers off on this one for all 3! LOL

Rhonda said...

30- Lol..I'm not really sure to be honest. I just thought it sounded cute so I commented about it. We need Penny and Kami to explain it to us.

DreamerKind said...

I'm on a tangent again. We'll see where it leads. Mysterious, aren't I?

30 said...

DK! WOW that is asking A LOT!lol

Cant I just pout,blink my eye's and smile then I can get one?.....

pretty pleassssse.

DreamerKind said...

Need to run over to the local Red Box and return Eat Pray Love before 9pm.

Liked it, very interesting and restful, but Julia's sadness wore me out.

Be back soon.

Rhonda said...

Hi Susan- Thanks..and same to you :)

DreamerKind said...

Crowns go to those who do what is asked of them and go beyond a little to a lot of A LOT.

110% effort is needed to get a crown, like our dearest defender Kami!

SueBee said...


Sweetie, I'll give you a crown. Let me borrow the bedazzler from Cate and I'll get you all hooked up!

DreamerKind said...

Start singing if you want Dreamer's crown, it's invisible and has powers!

Rhonda said...

30- They are very young age wise but, I think their old souls. I've never cared one way or another about any celebrity couple making it or not..but them..I so hope they do :)

Super RN Gas Passer said...

30...lol...what could we do so that we could get a crown or tiara??? DK..Im not a good singer...is there something else I could do??

Rhonda said...

DK- I agree if anybody deserves a crown it's Kami! She does look out for us all the time!

SueBee said...

Aha, the bedazzler!

Crowns can now be made available!


Super RN Gas Passer said...

HEY DK... Could I get any credit for jousting with a troll from last week?

Birdie said...

I agree Rhonda. I've never cared either,but these two seem to have something special. It impresses me how they protect it.

Rhonda said...

Super- I don't think I'm getting a crown. Before Christmas my 8 yr old nephew told me Santa wasn't coming because I had been a bad girl..LOL...

Super RN Gas Passer said...

RHONDA...Oh my...what in the world did you do to have your nephew say you were BAD? Im curious what an 8 year old nowadays considers bad...heh

Kami said...

LOL alright yall, I'll explain...my CROWN is on my tooth...after months of trying I finally got my crown.

SueBee said...


You've been going to the dentist for a while now. He must like you! (wink!)

Hope you're feeling okay from getting crowned. :o)

Rhonda said...

Super- Well..lol..He loves Twilight. He likes to think he's Seth Clearwater..and I told him he wasn't allowed to howl while we were out in public..LOL..

Super RN Gas Passer said...

BIRDIE...I know what you mean...sigh..Just watching R LOOK at her just melts my heart...It is the sweetest thing....What in the hell is wrong with us all? Sentimental?? Sex obsessed? Crazy?
Well, whatever it is, it sure is FUN!

Rhonda said...

Kami- Oooh...I take it back..I don't want one..Lol.. Hope your okay though :)

angelica1 said...

Kami- just a drive by.Congrats on The Crown!!!

Rhonda said...

Birdie- It's so endearing the two of them. I wish them privacy more than anything but I'm always thrilled when we get little glimpses here and there..

Super RN Gas Passer said...

KAMI...ouch...thats not the good kind of crown..but at least you do have the good one also!

RHONDA...8 year olds are pretty harsh these days I see...but Seth Clearwater IS a cutie pie... Bet your nephew is too!


Rhonda said...

Super- Yes, I think he is :)

*I*Believe* said...

Gosh! I just have to get a map to keep track of where you all live. Maybe I should add that to my New Year's resolution list.

Cannot WAIT for the PCA's. I can't wait to see the smitten smirks and smiles between Rob and Kristen.

Super~"the troll is licking her wounds" LOL with two exclamation points!!

Freddie~Hope your computer gets better. I am slowly getting back into the swing of school. Kids have been sluggish but they are slowly winding up.

PL~Are you still around? How's the administrator?

DK~Don't ya just love Red Boxes?? Just a buck...what a great deal:)

Rhonda said...

Kami- Don't you just hate going to the Dentist? I really love mine but I'm still a nervous wreck every time I go!

deb said...

YES ROSE that KISS ONE of many LIKE I see here we are going to have ONE HELL of a year THANK GOD for ROB and KRISTEN and THERE LOVE cant wait Love the pic. of MR.TOM THANKS ROSE love your post as always you make my day DEB.

Rhonda said...

Hi IB- Glad to hear school was okay :)

SueBee said...

Hello, Super.

How are you?

Super RN Gas Passer said...

I bid you all a fond farewell...Im going to try to chill for awhile..but its not going to be easy...I have a halter device strapped to my torso to monitor my heart rhythm...I look like I have a bomb strapped to me...lol....should be interesting!

Rhonda said...

Goodnight Super- Hope everything is okay..

Super RN Gas Passer said...

IB, SUE, take care... Goodnight

Penny Lane said...

Hello Believe,

The administrator is well. I probably shouldn't call him that as it sounds rather cold doesn't it.

And just so you all know, Kami needs a crown or tiara or something after the ordeal she went through with getting her crown.

*I*Believe* said...

Super~Good night and good luck with that thingy strapped to you:)

Hi Rhonda, my friend, how is your evening going?

I, myself, am pooped.

Super RN Gas Passer said...

RHONDA...Thanks..I think it will be...just been having palpitations...my Dr. thinks its stress!!!lol..Ever heard of that?

Birdie said...

In the words of Jerry Maguire "We live in a cynical world.A cynical world."
I don't think you see many people show the kind of genuine emotions that they do. At least, not in the public eye. Not with all the crap on TV and in Hollywood. So much of it is false.
What these two share just makes you feel hopeful. Sappy, I know.

*I*Believe* said...

PL~"Administrator" doesn't sound cold. We all have those little names for our hubbies like that.

I thought of you at Mass on Sunday. Did you get your religion?

Rhonda said...

Super- Yes, I think I know a thing or a million about that..lol!

IB- Hey I'm good..thanks. I'm sure it's hard to get back into a routine after being off :)

Birdie- I love it..so appropriate..

Penny Lane said...


I knew you were going to ask me that. I had my moment but it didn't take place in a church.

And just so you know, I never refer to him as administrator except here. I think it all started in some comment to Rhonda about hospital administrators taking time off over the holidays.

Rhonda said...

Penny- I think it's a sweet nickname :)

Rhonda said...

IB- Is it difficult for the kids to focus after time off like that? I think it would be a challenge.

*I*Believe* said...

PL~You must have ESP since you knew I was going to ask you about church.

It was Nativity Sunday so we sang all the great Christmas carols. Well, there I am, and then all of a sudden I get all emotional and I'm thinkin' what the heck is going on?? The organ is blairing and then our cantor, with the most lovely voice, starts singing O Holy Night...well I just lost it...I felt so silly but I got swept away.

Rhonda said...

I have to say goodbye now. I wish everyone a goodnight and sweet dreams :)

*I*Believe* said...

Rhonda~The first few days back, the kids are very tired. They are like little slugs so I do alot to get them up out of their seats and moving. As the week goes on, their stamina returns and they perk up and attend better. I tend to be very animated, so that helps too.

Hope you have a good night's sleep.

Barbara Fenwick said...

Rose, what a great start to 2011, and we have a picture of the kiss for all the people who did not believe it. We Robsten fans did not need proof. I am truly happy and am looking forward to all the great things instore for us this year.

DreamerKind said...


If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,

If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you
But make allowance for their doubting too,

If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or being lied about, don’t deal in lies,

Or being hated, don’t give way to hating,
And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise:

If you can dream–and not make dreams your master,
If you can think–and not make thoughts your aim;

If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same;

If you can bear to hear the truth you’ve spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,

Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and build ‘em up with worn-out tools:

If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it all on one turn of pitch-and-toss,

And lose, and start again at your beginnings
And never breath a word about your loss;

If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone,

And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: “Hold on!”

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
Or walk with kings–nor lose the common touch,

If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you;
If all men count with you, but none too much,

If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run,

Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it,
And–which is more–you’ll be a Man, my son!

–Rudyard Kipling

The Vogues-1968

Till the moon deserts the sky
Till the all the seas run dry
Till then I'll worship you

Till the tropic sun turns cold
Till this young world grows old
My darling, I'll adore you

You are my reason to live
All I own I would give
Just to have you adore me

Till the rivers flow upstream
Till lovers cease to dream
Till then I'm yours, be mine

Thank you/futykoolz

R&K must be laughing their heads of when they come across all the shit written about them. I love these two so goddamn much how they portray themselves and trying to live a 'normal' live like us mortals. The foamers,hyenas,haters and whatever else are cracking me up, the desperation they must be feeling when another intimate pic shows up. They must have a whole list of excuses they can use to calm their panic attacks.

@Bren, Birdie, Gwen & Louisa

Say, I'm around here, hooting and tooting, and doing a little looting while rooting.

Shout out and I'll hear you!


DreamerKind said...

Maybe it's because of my birthday which is days away...

Maybe it's because it's a new year and time must be taken to remember the old....

Maybe it's because so much of the joy I've found in my life came through her....

My mother...she is with me tonight and I'd like to tell you of a few things that made her special.

The Chicago buses used to run all night, not anymore. Some nights in the summer, it was so hot, we would lay blankets on the grass in our backyard and sleep out there.

She wouldn't sleep all night, keeping watch on her little chicks, that's mother love.

When the heat was unbearable, even too hot for sleeping in the yard, we would get on the late bus and ride downtown to one of the beaches.

We'd have blankets, treats and drinks and there might be four of us or ten, depending on how many friends had shown up at our house that night.

When we got to the beach, there would be hundreds of others, all camped out, looking for a cool place to sleep (this was before A/C was in common use).

It felt safe to be there and it was. We played in the water if the moon was high or on the lawn for a while and then settled down to sleep.

Around sunrise, my father would appear, to drive us home. We would be back again, several more times on the hottest nights.

Oh, glorious memories of my mother, and days gone by that lingers in my heart.


Barbra Streisand-Wow/just listen:

Not a sound from the pavement
Has the moon lost her memory
She is smiling alone

In the lamplight
The withered leaves collect at my feet
And the wind begins to moan

All alone in the moonlight
I can dream of the old days
Life was beautiful then

I remember the time I knew what happiness was
Let the memory live again

Every street lamp seems to beat
A fatalistic warning
Someone mutters and the street lamp sputters
And soon it will be morning

I must wait for the sunrise
I must think of a new life
And I musn't give in

When the dawn comes
Tonight will be a memory too
And a new day will begin

Burnt out ends of smoky days
The stale cold smell of morning
A street lamp dies, another night is over
Another day is dawning

Touch me,
It's so easy to leave me
All alone with the memory
Of my days in the sun

If you touch me,
You'll understand what happiness is
Look, a new day has begun...

Thank you/AnnaMayWongSociety

Great pics Rose esp. the first one, lol. Love it.

DK,Bren,Birdie and Louisa
gosh i miss you already guys and coming here in Roseland. Got to do some year-end reports so i dont have enough time to stay longer here. I see you when i can.

Have a great Tuesday everyone!

DreamerKind said...

You're sweet, and we miss you, too!

Come back soon.

After I post my last story for the night, I'm over and out myself.



Birdie said...

Are you around? WOW,I loved the story about your mother. She sounds very special.
I think I will send "If" to my son.
Are you doing some reflecting tonight?

Missed you,Gwen. Hope we will see more of you when work settles down.

Bren and Louisa, hello whereever you are!

Hang On Morocco

The cab didn't show, so we hailed one passing by. Within minutes, a cab stopped and it was not a roomy one, so I asked the cabbie, if I could sit in the front with him.

He seemed delighted, and almost immediately began a discourse, that at first amazed, and then entranced us all.

The cabbie began driving, under the speed limit, and he didn't always seem to have his hands on the wheel. Or perhaps he drove with his knees. I couldn't tell or see how he did it! Sheer willpower?

He looked to be in his late forties or early fifties. Hard to tell, as he wore a knitted cap, but there was some gray hair peeking out. His eyes were black and luminous, very magnetic to look into.

Then, he started asking us questions, about the youth of today, and as they are constantly playing video games, what did we think about that?

As I would begin to answer, he said, "Hang on, hang on, I am not finished speaking!".

His non-stop, fascinating stories drew us to him. The cab moved slower and slower. It was worth the extra time, for we were mesmerized. Love flowed out from him.

He asked again about the youth today and stopped me with, "Hang on, hang on, let me finish!"

We arrived home, he didn't stop talking. The meter was off, we tried to break away from him. It didn't work.

He told us he moved to Chicago from Morocco, for the love of a good woman, and how it had changed his life.

Then, with a saucy smile, he explained how a man of his age was capable of great physical passion and virility!

He didn't want a tip he said, for our company was enough. With our thanks, we gave him an extra tip anyway.

Another call came in for a pick up, so now he had to go.

No one kissed or hugged anyone, as a meeting of minds and hearts, had taken their place.

In the wee small hours of 2011, love talked and walked right in...


Loved Walked In

Leontyne Price/listen here:

Love walked right in
And drove the shadows away

Love walked right in
And brought my sunniest day

One magic moment
And my heart seemed to know

That love said "Hello"
Though not a word was spoken

One look and I forgot
The gloom of the past

One look and I had found
My future at last

One look and I had found
A world completely new

When love walked in
With you.

Thank you/gialli10

DreamerKind said...

We're like ships in the night again, lol.

You got it right, I'm reflecting. Glad you liked my reflections, too.

Sorry to have missed you. Write me that email soon, and we'll meet at portside.



DreamerKind said...

Dreamer is tripping the light fantastic.

Way to go Rose, and Roselanders!

Birdie said...

Damn, I missed you again. Loved the Morocco story. I do not know how to send the email address. I know,technically challenged. Talk to you later.

DreamerKind said...

Funny stuff! I came back to look at something and your comment was there.

When I first came here, I didn't know what the garbage can symbol at the bottom of the comment I posted was for-to delete said comment!

Had to ask the regs. and they graciously refrained from teasing me about that.

To email me:
Click on my moniker DreamerKind.
See my profile with Email link on the left side
Click on Email link
(You'll get an email form you can type on and send, if you have Gmail, like me.)

If you don't and want to send one from your personal email, just copy & paste my address into your email one.

1. Left click mouse and then slide it over the text you want to copy.

2. Copy & paste or copy with CTRL and C keys.

I use these keyboard buttons: (CTRL/control key is left bottom and "C"- hold both down to copy)as it seems easier to me.

3. Put copied text where you want it to be in your email send to area: by using the CTRL and V (View) keys just like the C (Copy) you used above.

My instructions are pretty lame, so instead ask the kids to help you, lol!

Birdie said...

Should you read this later, I actually know how to do what you described. I get a message saying I do not have access because " the default mail client is not properly installed". I have no idea what that means. Can you figure that one out?

DreamerKind said...

This is such fun, isn't it? We can pretend that we are computer wizards on Roseland!

DreamerKind said...

Do you get to see my email address from the link?

If not it is:


That's all you need to type or copy into your own yahoo/comcast/aol/gmail or other one you use.

To fix default error:
I looked this up and if you know where to find Tools on your screen, it can be fixed IMO.

Open up Tools -
Internet options -
Programs, then -
Set programs -
Set programme access and computer defaults -
Custom (open it up) select Windows Mail (not current email programme) and ok. this is now working for me

Birdie said...

Are you still awake? Did you understand what I said?

olivia said...

Good morning Rose and Roselanders,
Thank you for the post Rose. Too cute.

Will be watching the PCA tonight. What a wonderful gift to have both Rob and Kristen in attendance. They will shine, both in appearance and with an inner glow, showing us their emotions. They are winners not only in their craft but in their approach to life. I am cheering them on!

DK, loved the memories of your mom. Thank you for sharing them.
The tale about the cabbie was lovely too; love the flow of your writing.

Off to work. Roseland, have a beautiful day.
Hugs to all.
Smitty and Gruff, enjoy!

DreamerKind said...

I am still up and did understand. Can't you send emails from your computer at all?

DreamerKind said...

Thanks for your remarks. The cabbie story was the last of the NYE requested stories.

Have a great day shaping the minds of those very youths he was so worried about.

DreamerKind said...

The sun's up and that's my cue to get some sleep.

I'll see you in my dreams and later on aqui (here).

It's Happy Days Are Here Again, when Rob and Kristen hit the bricks for the troops, wearing their newly won crowns!

Cate said...

Good Morning all!

Be careful what you wish for.

Susan and that bedazzler are a force to be reckoned with ;)

She is like nothing you’ve ever seen before.

Love ya wonderful Wonder Woman!

Have a great day everyone.


Rhonda said...

Good Morning Rose and Roseland!

Dk- I loved the stories about your mother. One of these days I'm going to take a nap so I can come hang out with you on the nightshift :)

Olivia- Enjoyed reading your comments. You have a beautiful way with words. Hope you have a great day.


Kami said...

Told my hubby as he was looking over my shoulder last night reading posts, about Susan's bedazzler and said she would bedazzle crowns, so he naturally thought, since we've been dealing with mine for months, I meant she would bedazzle crowns. like the kind in my mouth. To which he said, "If she bedazzles her teeth she's got to be pretty tough, cause that would hurt" Y'all he was a serious as a heart attack!

Got to admit, pretty funny

30 said...


Can not wait! :)

SueBee! YES, I want a bedazzled one... pleaaaase. Pretty pink and gold bedazzles! ;)

angelica1 said...

Kami - Imagining it is giving me toothache! lol Cheaper than a dentist though :)

SueBee said...


I'm all for sparkly teeth but that sure would make me a tough guy! Sorry to disappoint your hubby but I'm going to stick with toothpaste instead! LOL!!!

That was funny!


I need to see where Cate stashed the extra gems (our helmets look bee-u-tee-ful!) and then I'll set you up with something extra shiny!!

30 said...


I might need a Bedazzled SNOW SHOVEL. LOL I just heard on the news another... big snow storm headed my way for this weekend.This shit better be wrong.

:( noooooooo!

Rhonda said...

Hi Kami, Susan, Angelica and 30. Hope everyone is having a good day so far.

30- I heard about that forecast. We're expected to have mixed weather today and snow on friday. I love the snow but I'm sure you're way over it.

angelica1 said...

Hi Rhonda.We seem to be getting a break for now,just the occasional snow shower :)

Melinda said...

Kami- cute story!! :)

Susan- cracking up at the mental picture of you with bedazzled teeth! Somehow I think you could pull it off.

30- I hope for your sake (and sanity!) that the storm goes away.

Rhonda said...

Angelica- Are you getting back into the swing of things at work? It's always tough after being off :)

Penny Lane said...

I'm going to have a mini rant here.

I just got home from the grocery store, Meijer's for anyone in the midwest. I just needed milk, bread and yogurt. The was an old gentleman standing in front of the yogurt, totally blocking the area, slowly searching through each container before adding one at a time to his cart. He apparently wanted to take advantage of the 10 for $5. After an interminable time of waiting I said excuse me and he still did not move. There was literally a line forming in front of the yogurt.

End of rant.

Rhonda said...

Hi Penny- At least you were polite about it :) I've experienced grocery rage before.

Freddie said...

Hey Kami, Rhonda, 30, Suebee, Melinda, Angelica and Penny - hope you ladies are having a good morning.

Kami - I laughed at your 'crown' story. How did you keep a straight face when talking to your husband?

On the bedazzling front, whenever I see anyone wearing anything with studs or jewels, I think of you guys.

Penny - thanks for the advise about my PC. I'll see if I get up the guts to do something about it this weekend - when, as you say, I have a chunk of time.

Have a good morning all. I'll probably talk with you on the next post.

Penny Lane said...


There is such a thing as grocery store etiquette. Never stand in the middle of the aisle and talk to someone. Be aware of shoppers around you and don't block an area with your cart. And never, never start unloading your cart before the cart ahead of you is totally empty.

Kami said...

Penny, I think that when someone does something like that, it should be legal to slap them in the head and if that doesn't work, ram the back of their knees with your basket.

Last week 4 women decided to part their rather large asses in front of the potatoes at the store, Excuse me, Pardon me, can I get by, didn't work...but a little old woman walked up and barked "Move over fat asses" and they moved. I wanted to cheer.

I can't seem to get the picture of Susan with a bedazzled grille out of my head..my hubby swears he was joking, but...

angelica1 said...

Rhonda - I think my brain's still on holiday. I was literally in the car about to drive home when I remembered I'd forgotten to authorise the overtime!!They'll forgive me most things but not underpaying them, so I've come back in to do it :)

Penny - You've just found one of my pet hates! Why do people have to block entire displays to choose things that are all the same?! Like inspecting packs of kitchen towel that are all the same make or bin liners...

angelica1 said...

Hi Freddie :)

Rhonda said...

Penny- Lol..I agree. I just wish some people would follow it!

Hi Freddie- Talk to you later.

Kami said...

can we add one to the list of Grocery store rules?

Don't let your kids run up and down aisles grabbing things off the shelf while you chase them yelling "Leroy!! Bring that back and get over here now or I'll whoop you!!"

Penny Lane said...


Someday have Heith come and talk to all of us. If he has as many funny sayings and stories as you he would charm us all.

Rhonda said...

Angelica- Yes, I think you would've had some unhappy people on your hands :)

Kami- That's funny. I guess we get bolder as we age and we just say what we think..too funny!

Kami said...

LOL I actually had to pull the computer away from Heith the other night because he was about to unload on our troll...and it would not have been pretty. He doesn't say much...but when he does...watch out!

Kami said...

alright off to nap...I've decided to be extremely lazy today...house is cleaned, Dinner is in the fridge..I'm curling up with a blanket, a book, a good movie and the dog...

Rhonda said...

Kami- one of mine is when your at the gas station and the person in front of you has pumped their gas and yet they get in the car and just sit there..drives me crazy!

Rhonda said...

I'm leaving too..talk to you all later.
Have a good nap Kami :)

Penny Lane said...


Before I leave I have to tell you, I don't pump gas ever. The administrator does it for me.

30 said...

Penny ,

We dont do are own gas here either. I thought NJ was the only state left that had pl actually pumping for us. Its funny when I went to Fl a few years back and had to pump it myself I had no idea had to do it, the people working inside were like are you from New Jersey? LMAO Then they said I have an accent. I do not. ;)

30 said...

Dam, the "administer" is your hubby isn't it? LMFAO!!! I had a dumb-ass moment. LOL

SueBee said...


Maybe Heath has a good idea here. What color jewels should I load in the bedazzler? This could be the start of a big trend! Grill glitter!

As far as grocery stores go, I hate when I say "excuse me" and the person in front of me looks as if I'm speaking a foreign language. What ever happened to good manners????
