Rob and Kristen- Vancouver Loving, Having a Blast.



Pictures from the set of the Vanity Fair photoshoot
(On stands March 3rd!)

I subscribed to Vanity Fair JUST because of Robert.
In fact...
I have subscribed to a few magazines cuz of him.
Lame?
Yeah... so what.

Anyway.
Does Robert look all dreamy with his black amish hat?
And it's really probably like a 30s fedora or something...
to take us back to the whole WFE era
But it matters not.
Robert ALWAYS looks great.
And Annie Leibovitz?
Awesome.

I'm looking forward to all the press/interviews 
Rob will be doing to promote WFE
He should do Conan...
and definitely Fallon again.
We need another 
BOTHERED!
Because seriously...


Was there ANYTHING cuter than Rob up a tree??
Prove it.
He is the most adorable man on the planet.
And no matter how hard anyone tries to prove me wrong...
They can't.
So there.


OK.
On to more pressing business.
Or not.
The random bullshit.

1. The whole VF blurb about Rob doing the 'roadtrip'
just to get to where they were filming WFE.
(And not to get to Kristen)
Come on...
You know it doesn't fit.

From Robstenation:
Rob wrapped his scenes for WFE on August 3rd and left Nashville via BNA airport August 4, 2010. The Britpack's road trip started September 5, when he was first spotted in New Mexico until the last sighting of him in Louisiana with Kristen around September 11th. Then he popped up in London September 18th to watch Marcus Foster's show in London while Kristen continued filming for 'On The Road'. This only means he was done with WFE before the 'great hobo road trip'.


Now people were howling at me saying
I was calling Rob a 'liar'
Really?
I did no such thing.
I just said the timeline didn't fit...
and that I would wait until the article was read in its entirety.
The problem is...
People fucking NITPICK every syllable that Rob utters.
He's not always serious.
He's not always to be taken literally (that's lit-trelly)
Come on!
Like the whole 'I'm soooo lonely I need a puppy and big screen TV
to haul around with me from hotel to hotel'
Good Grief.


I keep getting asked that if I have 'private' pics of
Robert and Kristen...
WHY HAVEN'T I POSTED THEM???
(Obviously I'm not the only one...)
Um.
Gee.
Maybe because I gave my word?
I know that is a foreign concept to people who
pounce on anything and post it for attention
(and cover it in lame tags like they own it)
But when someone asks me NOT to do something...
And I promise that I won't?
Guess what?
I don't.
Imagine that.
And even if said pictures would make the hyenas
cry and whimper in sheer agony...
I still won't do it. I have nothing to prove.
I feel no need to validate what I already know.


Oh and another thing.
I get stuff that says that I'm all about the 'sex'
with Robert and Kristen.
Really?
REALLY??
I don't ever talk about that.
I might allude to the fact that Rob and Kristen live together...
(Yes. They do)
Or like to kiss and be all cute together
I do a lot of 'wink wink' kinda stuff....
But I don't discuss their sex lives.
Because honestly?
That's so not my thing.
It kinda creeps me out when people have cropped pics
of Robert's crotch and arrows pointing to parts of his anatomy.
Sorry.
Not for me.
I don't look at Rob as a piece of meat.
He's SO much more to me.
(And hey, if you do, to each their own)
But I'm not comfortable with that.
 I don't have sex fantasies of Robert and/or Kristen
My fantasy is hanging out with him (and Tom)
in a pub...
Listening to some good music
Laughing and talking 
Having a few pints of beer.
That's it.
Sorry to disappoint.


So its not certain if Rob (and Kristen?) will be going to the Oscars on Sunday.
And although I would LOVE to see him all shiny and sparkly
A part of me doesn't really want to deal with the bullshit
that always surrounds events like this.
It might be more relaxing and peaceful not to have him there.
But hey...
It would be great for him to promote WFE with Reese...
So...
I have mixed feelings on the whole thing.
I guess I can just stay off Twitter during the show...
Since that is the epitome of lunacy whenever Rob is on TV.

BUT.
That being said.
I would 
LOVE
LOVE
LOVE
Kristen to show up with Rob at the WFE premiere.
Why?
Because she belongs with him.
Might as well get used to it and start dealing... you know?
People are allowed to bring their significant others to their premieres.
Do you think Reese will be there with her fiance?
That's OK... right?
So why not Kristen?
And Kristen being there has nothing to do with trying
to undermine WFE
or
Promoting BD which doesn't come out until Nov.
It's just about being there for Rob.
It's ALL about Robert.
It's being supportive.
Because maybe Robert wants her there...
Yeah.
THAT'S what I would love to see.
But will I?
  
Tick Tock
On the clock.

 So that's about it.

Just wanted to say that 
I love Tom Sturridge.
I do.

I know Rob doesn't mind.
(He's OK with my split intoxication)
Hahahaha!

This post is brought to you by the letters *F* and *T*

F for FACT!
I love when people come at me with their FACTS.
"I KNOW FOR A FACT..."
Right.
You know shit.

T for TICK TOCK
on the clock

T for Tweets
Stop tweeting me.
I don't know who you are.
I don't know what you are talking about.
You're creepy.

T for TOM!
Because I never can seem to get enough.


Bye for now

i think this blog says it all. you are BANG on the money that it's really stupid how some people assume they know all the facts. ugh stupid people! :P haha Rob and Kristen are entitled to do whatever the hell they wanna do. whether it's together or apart. i'll always support them. It's got nothing to do with me, or anyone else (besides themselves) what they get upto. although.. it certainly is interesting to find out :P

SueBee said...

Nice pics.

Toni said...

Hey everyone! Hope you are all well.

I agree with Sue, very nice pictures.

Take care,

Toni

dottie said...

I agree with every single word of this!

Penny Lane said...

I think the winter doldrums are causing people to over analyze every little thing.

Now, I need to apologize for starting more drama yesterday. That was not my intent. I answered a question. I was not singling anyone out.

So I hope anyone who is frustrated with the comments here, or feels they've been slighted in some way, knows that they have just as much right as anyone else to post comments on this very public blog.

Rhonda said...

Hi Rose,

I could look at the VF photos everyday and never get tired of them.

Analyzing every word..hmmmm..the craziness never stops.

You referenced the Ark yesterday. If it doesn't stop raining her soon I just might need it :)

Hi Susan- good to see you :)

Hello everyone!

MLH414 said...

Rose~

Awesome post...Rob looks gorgeous in those new pics. :)

I loved when he was on Fallon last time and went up the tree...that was absolutely epic...he is soo sweet and such a good sport.

The pics of Rob and Kris in your post today are my faves...I hope that they have another photo shoot like that again. I would love to hang out with Rob and Tom (and Kris) at a pub too, drinking beer and listening to music...

I hope that everyone has a great day...and I hope that nobody quits posting on here...I love Roseland and I love reading what everyone has to post...we care about Rob and Kris (and Tom)...we like to talk about their movies...we all have that in common...and thank you Rose for giving us a place to come and do that!! :)

~Lynn

Rhonda said...

I was trying to say raining 'here'..ughh..I hate typos, lol :)

Kay said...

Hi Susan, Toni, Penny, Rhonda, Dottie, Lynn, Katherine and anyone else lurking out there in Roseland! Hope you all are having an awesome day!!

What I want to know Rose, is at what point did Rob and Kristen stop being normal human beings to these people? They are just trying to live their lives......they need to let them.

katy said...

Hi, Rose!! awesome post as always!!

Rob in black....my God
swooningly droolingly gorgeous.


Hope everyone is having a great day!

Hugs

bev said...

Oh Rose you are always soooooo right on with your blog. Just love it, love it. I cant say it enough.

Groovie said...

Happy Thursday Everyone!

Excellent post today Rose, I agree with every word.

Love the glimpses into Rob's new Vanity Fair shoot, and I quite like his Amish hat, he can pull it off and still look cute.

And u can never go wrong with the Vanity Fair pix of Rob & Kris, awesome shoot!

I'm excited for WFE promo to kick into high gear, loved the book and can't wait for the film!
I hope Kristen goes to the WFE premiere if she is able to and doesn't let any of the haters stop her from going if that is what she wants to do.

I ignore all the bs drama that inevitably follows any interview Rob or Kristen do. I'm smart enough to read & comprehend what I'm reading lol so the drama is totally unnecessary. Just let it roll off u and don't waste time with idiots that lack reading comprehension skills & common sense.

Hope everyone is having a great day :)

30 said...

Hi Ladies!

Can I just say, (in case no one was here when I told ya all this before.) I was at Jimmy Fallon when Rob was there for the Remember Me premiere and that famous skit of Rob in a tree was released.:) He is so tall and sweet and a bit anxious of the the energy thrown at him with a big crowd.But I agree JF is hilarious and respectful too Rob and Kristen both.Hopefully he goes again for WFE. I would LOVE also if he went on Conan. Love him too!

Anyway, those VF pics just WOW Rob in a 80's piece, fits him well. The hat, the glove.

I hope everyone is well. Liza I hope too see you post soon. :)

real pr pro said...

30 -- I was there too! My agenct gets tickets to all the New York-based talk shows becasue our clients are advertisers so I made sure I claimed two for this taping. My ears still hurt from the screaming. I actually answered one of the questions when they did the pre-show quiz -- name at least three Robert is Bothered topics. I won a t-shirt -- but it a was Team Jacobone for some strange reason.

*I*Believe* said...

RealPro~
How do we plain old muffafumps get our hot little hands on tickets?

30~You actually saw Rob with your own eyes?

SB~So nice to see you!!! We all miss you!

dottie said...

Oh now I'm jealous! I have a thing for Jimmy Fallon!!!

Yeah, Rob's ok too. haha

real pr pro said...

I Believe -- Getting tickets to these shows for any given night is easy -- the tricky thing is getting thm for a specifc night can be hard (which is where contacts come in handy.) Here's the info from Fallon's website: Tickets to Late Night With Jimmy Fallon are available by calling our ticket office at (212) 664-3056. Please call for availability. Generally, tickets are booked about one month in advance from the actual taping. You can request up to four tickets, and all audience members must be at least 17 years old. You may only book tickets once every six months, and you may not book tickets with any other groups of people. Information about last minute ticket openings will be advertised through Late Night's Twitter updates.

30 said...

Real PR Pro! I was in the front seats with my friend. She lives in NY and got us the tickets. :) I do remember a few people winning a Jacob shirt. :) We had a blast that day.We also went over too the RM premiere but hung out on the outskirts. A bit too nutty for me with press,paps and crazy fans. LOL I know, at JF it was loud. Not that I was screaming with them.. Never me. LOL

Yes with my own eyes I! :) He is sexier in person than on TV IMHO

Rhonda said...

Real pr pro- How cool to have someone who actually knows the inner workings of this stuff! Thanks :)

Hey IB,30,dottie,Kay and Groovie!

30 said...

It's very hard too get tickets for a show when Rob is on them.(Like a million 16 year old girls and there Moms get them first for the most part) Like PR pro said, unless you know someone it's pretty much not gonna happen. I tried on my own too get a few another time. Didn't happen LOL

Rhonda said...

30- I can only imagine. You changed your avi..I like it :)

*I*Believe* said...

Hey Rhonda!

30~Did your friend get you the tickets? How in the world did you get front row?

BTW if I saw Rob with my own eyes I would die!!!

*I*Believe* said...

Wanted to add that I would die with a SMILE on my face!

Rhonda said...

IB- You're so funny :)

*I*Believe* said...

Rhonda~You have another pretty girl avi. Are planning a trip to Chi-town?

*I*Believe* said...

*you

Rhonda said...

IB- I would love to but I don't know yet. I want to come to NY too.
My avi girl has a cute tattoo but you can't really see it that well.

Are you enjoying the time off?

*I*Believe* said...

Rhonda~New York!?! When are you coming to New York????

My week off feels like a week on. I have been very busy with appointments,etc.

deb said...

Rose I think IF kristen docent make to the WFE permiere Im sue she'll be UP STARS waiting for him when he comes home Who know if there is a ater party she mite show up there ether way you know they well be together I love the pic of them SO MUCH LOVE THANK YOU ROSE DEB.

Rhonda said...

IB- I was thinking this Spring or early Summer.

30 said...

Thanks Rhonda. I am in a fairy mood for some reason. :)

"I" yes, my friend who lives in NY City got us the tickets.

*I*Believe* said...

Come for the WFE Premiere~April 17th!!!! Do you have friends in NY?

*I*Believe* said...

30~Lucky you! Did she know someone to be able to land front row seats?

Rhonda said...

IB- I have a friend's sister who lives in NYC and she says I can stay with her anytime I come up.

*I*Believe* said...

That's so nice of you. I would offer you a bed to sleep in but I am 2 hours north of the city. I would love to come down to see you, though. We could have a Northeast Chapter Roseland Roundup!

real pr pro said...

30 -- I thought he looked a lot younger, too. And absolutely terrified of the crowd! What I remember is how nice he was when the stage manager asked if he could stay a bit and do a promo spot -- he had that adorkable Rob look on his face while she gave him direction. And the laser eyes bit was priceless.

*I*Believe* said...

Speaking of Jimmy Fallon...he went to the same college I went to in Abany, NY. We were there at different times.

Rhonda said...

IB- Lol, if I get to come I will definitely let you know :)

*I*Believe* said...

Yeah!

*I*Believe* said...

Gotta take daw to get her glasses fixed~bbl

Rhonda said...

Me too..bye(waves)

Sydney said...

Having them at these awards ceremonies stresses me out for some reason...and keeps me positively GLUED to the TV, lest I miss a crowd shot that shows them. I'd rather just leisurely enjoy the Oscars and be able to change the station if I want. So, yeah, I'd sorta rather they didn't go.

And I am ALL FOR Kristen going to the WFE premiere. Mostly because I know he'll want her there. It wouldn't be the same. But I would also love to see her stick it to Hatestens. LOVE IT.

Ha- my verification word - nonser.

Hope said...

I am all for Kristen going to the premiere of WFE too...sorry but I really want her there!!

Just like I hope to see Rob with Kristen and Tom at the premiere of OTR. Counting on it!!!!!!!

My Heart On My Sleeve said...

Thank You Vanity Fair! March 3 is my birthday. Happy Vanity Fair Birthday to ME!

kristinson60 said...

I love those pictures of Rob & Kristen at their first Twilight shoot so young and innocent and already in love without even knowing it yet. Or should I say Kristen didn't know it yet Rob was smitten from first time he saw her face to face he was done put a fork in him off the market headover hills in LOVE! I hate the nonstens and all their crap, I was looking a blog someone posted on the FB site that i've never seen before and they had pictures of Kristen and Michael Arangano and saying "aw look at these two so in love and still together for 4 yrs now, just proves true love can exist in Hollywood." And I start freaking out then go back to examine the picture a little closer and notice the dress Kristen has on is one she wore for one of the Twilight promo's, you could barely see the dress but I recognized it right away the second time I looked. WTF do these ppl think that us Robsten's are stupid asses or something. Michael hasn't been seen anywhere with her and I mean anywhere for over 2 yrs and they post this shiz to just get ppl upset thinking they know something we don't. I've fallen for that crap a couple times but no more, Rob & Kristen are together forever and they just need to leave them the hell alone.

Freddie said...

Hi everybody,

I’m just popping in quickly between work sessions and our evening event tonight.

The new VF pictures look really good. I can’t wait for next week. I’m loving Rob in black….(didn’t I just say I loved seeing him in red… and gray… and blue just last week???). I guess there’s a theme here.

Liza, I hope we hear from you very soon. Your friends here in Roseland have spoken. You can’t get rid of us that easily.

Kami – I hope that after taking a break you will rejoin the discussions. You will be missed in the interim.

IB – hey there, hope you are well. The trip to Montreal is going well so far. Regrettably, nothing exciting like short-sheeting …yet. There may be alcohol at the event tonight so who knows what might happen since the sales team is involved and they know how to party. When they last travelled for work they took the train and everyone was confused when one of the guys showed up with a huge suitcase for a short overnight trip. It turned out that he had packed a two-four of beer in his suitcase packed in ice. It only became apparent when his suitcase started to leaking water (as the ice melted)….

Linda - I’m glad you are feeling better.

Super – hope you are feeling better too. I think you said your back was bothering you.

To all of the other Roselanders I hope you have a wonderful rest of the day. Stay well all.

angelica1 said...

Hi everyone :) Does Rob ever take a bad pic? No he does not! I can't believe people really think he's carting a puppy around hotels with him (unless Kristen bought him a stuffed one for Valentine's Day.LOL).I think our weird British sense of humour just goes over some people's heads

MySoCalledLife said...

Evening Roseland!
Rose - nice job as always. I was reading your twitter feed today and I'm just sorry you have to deal with so many nut jobs.

There's a lot of crazy happening there and you seem to bear the brunt of it.

I want you to know your opinions are shared by many and your blog is the best!

Also, I give you lots of credit in how you deal with it. You are a much better person than me.

Freddie - LMAO at the suitcase full of beer. I've been to conferences with some of our Canadian contractors and they really know how to party. Was it filled with Molson XXX? Do they even still make that stuff?!

Anyway, have a good night everyone!

Rhonda said...

Hi Angelica-

Speaking of your sense of humor, how's the list of 'isms' coming along, Lol :)


Freddie- I liked your story about the beer in the suitcase :) Take care in Montreal.

Super RN Gas Passer said...

ROSE..Mr. Handsome IS the most ADORABLE Man on the Planet..no doubt... and I cant wait for the WFE premiere, do we know the exact date? Is it April 17th or is earlier than that?????

ROB BOTHERED..SOOOOO funny! heh..would love them to do one every year from now on, because Mr. Handsome will have at least one film a year, if not two, with a New York premiere. heh

30..DAMN...you SAW him..I was just talking to a girl just one hour ago as I was "standing" with her outside my business and showing her all the pictures of ROB I have downloaded on to my cell phone, she said to me, I WONDER if he looks as good in person as he does in the pictures...heh...now I can tell her what you said..

FREDDIE..Have a good time on your trip and I am just great...

IB..Now how about that, you went to the same college as Jimmy Fallon and ME...heh (two separate schools, of course).

ANGELICA..Talking about British humor, I thought it was sooo funny the time Rob said in an interview he was allergic to vaginas..heh..the nonstens decided "he must be gay" lol.. but of course that is "the joke" ...that THAT particular body part SWELLS when confronted with one! (eye roll)

wig4usc said...

Oh, that first pic of Rob...Rob in black or white is my fave! and when its a button up, like the one with the cig hanging out...while I hate the cig, no denying how sexy he is in that!

Please, oh how I would enjoy seeing Kristen at the WFE premiere!!!

Teeth said...

Wow, Rob looks so different, yet equally deli--,erm, Handsome in each and every pic. Amazing!

P.S. The banner is my favorite Kristen/Rob pic.

Hello Rose, greetings from Brazil for you. I really admire the way you write and think. Love the blog, enter daily.

Aeden27 said...

Lovely Rose,

Love your post! We'll, you know how some people are-it did kind of creep me out when you said people have "those" picure of Rob. It only shows how people look @ him-and it's totally disrespectful
what people say reflects what they are.Period

I must confess. All my wallpapers are of Rob & Kristen-especially the vanity fair pics)-i cant help but smile whenever i see those pics. I love those 2.

I just hope Rob & Kristen will grace the WFE premier-wouldn't that be sweet. But on the other hand-it would mean one thing-foaming-so i'd rather they just stay @ home-cuddled together

Have a wonderful day to all

Rose, I am with you, I hope Kristen shows up at Rob's premiere with him, it is where she should be, showing support for Rob, so here is hoping. Love you Rose, take care. RobertLovesKristenLovesRobert.

Rose,
I love the way you think and your value system.I totally agree with the crossing the "creepy" line. I'm not saying it isn't OK to poke the beast once in awhile(and you do it so well)but you do not stray from the truth and you aren't mean-spirited.

Good night Roseland. Maybe later Nightowls!

February Song

Josh Groban:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CXmjQDmicic&feature=related

Where has that old friend gone
Lost in a February song
Tell him it won't be long
Til he opens his eyes, opens his eyes

Where is that simple day
Before colors broke into shades
And how did I ever fade
Into this life, into this life

And I never want to let you down
Forgive me if I slip away
When all that I've known is lost and found
I promise you I, I'll come back to you one day

Morning is waking up
And sometimes it's more than just enough
When all that you need to love
Is in front of your eyes
It's in front of your eyes

And I never want to let you down
Forgive me if I slip away
Sometimes it's hard to find the ground
Cause I keep on falling as I try to get away
From this crazy world

And I never want to let you down
Forgive me if I slip away
When all that I've known is lost and found
I promise you I, I'll come back to you one day

Where has that old friend gone
Lost in a February song
Tell him it won't be long
Til he opens his eyes
Opens his eyes

Thank you/nimoambot

Creep

Radiohead:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jzjUjNPYzLg&feature=related

When you were here before,
Couldn't look you in the eye
You're just like an angel,
Your skin makes me cry

You float like a feather
In a beautiful world
I wish I was special
You're so fuckin' special

But I'm a creep,
I'm a weirdo
What the hell am I doin' here?
I don't belong here

I don't care if it hurts,
I wanna have control
I want a perfect body
I want a perfect soul

I want you to notice
when I'm not around
You're so fuckin' special
I wish I was special

But I'm a creep
I'm a weirdo
What the hell am I doin' here?
I don't belong here, ohhhh, ohhhh

She's running out again
She's running out
She run run run run...
run... run...

Whatever makes you happy
Whatever you want
You're so fuckin' special
I wish I was special

But I'm a creep,
I'm a weirdo
What the hell am I doin' here?
I don't belong here

I don't belong here...

Thank you/BVMTValternative

Posted this lesson on my Facebook status today and have had some comments on it. So, I thought I'd share it with my dear Roselanders.

It would seem to help in tough times to think like this.

It is from A Course In Miracles and is not religious, more like for self-help.

Lesson 34

"The idea for today begins to describe the conditions that prevail in the other way of seeing.
Peace of mind is clearly an internal matter.
It must begin with your own thoughts, and then extend outward.
It is from your peace of mind that a peaceful perception of the world arises."

Peace Of Mind

Boston:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-cTYhY3NUWE

Now if you’re feelin’ kinda low ’bout the dues you’ve been paying
Future’s coming much too slow

And you wanna run but somehow you
Just keep on stayin’
Can’t decide on which way to go
Yeah, yeah, yeah

I understand about indecision
But I don’t care if I get behind
People livin’ in competition
All I want is to have my peace of mind.

Now you’re climbin’ to the top of the company ladder
Hope it doesn’t take too long

Can’t you see there’ll come a day when it won’t matter
Come a day when you’ll be gone

Take a look ahead, take a look ahead, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah...

Now everybody’s got advice they just keep on givin’
Doesn’t mean too much to me

Lot’s of people out to make-believe they’re livin’
Can’t decide who they should be.

Take a look ahead, take a look ahead. look ahead.

All our times have come
Here but now they're gone
Seasons don't fear the reaper
Nor do the wind, the sun or the rain
(We can be like they are)

Come on baby
(Don't fear the Reaper)
Baby take my hand
(Don't fear the Reaper)
We'll be able to fly
(Don't fear the Reaper)
Baby I'm your man

La, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la

Valentine is done
Here but now they're gone
Romeo and Juliet
Are together in eternity
(Romeo and Juliet)

40,000 men and women everyday
(Like Romeo and Juliet)
40,000 men and women everyday
(Redefine happiness)
Another 40,000 coming everyday
(We can be like they are)

Come on baby
(Don't fear the Reaper)
Baby take my hand
(Don't fear the Reaper)
We'll be able to fly
(Don't fear the Reaper)
Baby I'm your man

La, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la

Love of two is one
Here but now they're gone
Came the last night of sadness
And it was clear she couldn't go on

Then the door was open and the wind appeared
The candles blew and then disappeared
The curtains flew and then he appeared
(Saying don't be afraid)

Come on baby
(And she had no fear)
And she ran to him
(Then they started to fly)

They looked backward and said goodbye
(She had become like they are)
She had taken his hand
(She had become like they are)

Come on baby
(Don't fear the reaper)


Thank you/Cherootoe

My computer is very slow for some silly reason. I'm going to clean it up and be back around 215 my time.

Bren said...

Fine and dandy, like a piece of candy....little lady.

@Bren
Took longer than I thought to vanish the goobies, but here I am.

How are you today?

Dance To This

Rock-A-Hula

Elvis:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H8MlZ6J4rTo

The way she moves her hips to her fingertips
I feel I'm heaven bound

And when she starts to sway, I've gotta say
She really moves the grass around

Rock-a-hula baby
Rock-a-hula baby
Got a hula lulu from Honolulu
That rock-a-hula baby of mine

Although I love to kiss my little hula miss
I never get the chance

I wanna hold her tight all through the night
But all she wants to do is dance

I bet that she could teach the palms along the beach
To sway when breezes blow

And birds up in the sky could learn to fly
By watchin' how my baby can go

Thank you/musicislifee01

Bren said...

Went surfing, but couldn't find any news out there, except that Rob's parents are in Vancouver, and that's good news...nice reunion..

What was your day like?

DreamerKind said...

@Bren
Sent you a PM about it. Otherwise, all is well and I am enjoying pretzels and beer.

DreamerKind said...

@Bren
Been reading about New Zealand and the earthquake status there, heartbreaking. They suggest donating to the Salvation Army as they are johnny-on-the spot and always present in every capacity. Think I'll do that.

Word verf: "unbra"
Wear an unbra for convenience and sexy moments, ha, ha.

Bren said...

I have heard that before about the Salvation Army, that they are your boys...always there in a crisis...

Earthquakes are horrible, the devastation is tremendous...look at Haiti who knows how long that will take...

DreamerKind said...

@Bren
Haiti, isn't doing that well either. I admire those stars that are over there, and the common folks, too. People rise to their highest when helping each other IMO.

Wonder how that blogger whose house burned down recently and she lost her pets, is doing these days? Rose mentioned her last week. Have you heard anything?

Bren said...

I just ate some grapes, and that wasn't enough....

I'm turning into a midnight snacker on this board...had a dental checkup last week, and didn't have any cavities...I'm amazed considering all the sweets I've consumed lately...and at work, holy moly you wouldn't believe the spreads...

Ain't No Sunshine When She's Gone

Jose Feliciano:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d-lUBlbJkrQ&feature=related

Ain't no sunshine when she's gone
It's not warm when she's away.

Ain't no sunshine when she's gone
and she's always gone too long anytime she goes away.

Wonder where this time she's gone
Wonder if she's gonna stay

Ain't no sunshine when she's gone
and this house just ain't no home anytime she goes away.

coz I know, I know, I know
Hey I'd leave the young thing alone
But ain't no sunshine when she's gone.

Ain't no sunshine when she's gone
And this house just ain't no home
Anytime she goes away

Thank you/ognet

DreamerKind said...

@Bren
There's just something about a midnight snack or for me now, at 3am!

Did you know I ate a Dove ice cream bar in your honor the other day?

DreamerKind said...

@Bren
Oh, I do have some news! My toilet handle broke tonight, and looks like the plastic inside was twisted by Superman or a superhuman. And, my furnace comes on about six times and turns off again, before the heat starts to blow.

I'll have to call the landlord and he'll come by and that means a big discussion about, well, everything.

Not in the mood for big discussions, as I like to schmooze all of the time, about nothing at all. A big nothing discussion is relaxing and without expectations.

Bren said...

I did read about the Dove Bar...thank you...I hope you relished it..

Seems Uncle Sam didn't think we gave him enough money this year so we have to dish out more $$$$...whoopie..

DreamerKind said...

@Bren
Me, too, he wants to marry me for the money he thinks I have. I'd call him Uncle Sam when he is in bed with me, cause it sure feels like he is, in bed, in the store, in the car, in the house, in my shoes, you get the idea.

Mrs. Uncle Sam, I am. Sam I am.

Word verf: "detry"
Just detry to not pay your taxes and watch the fun begin.

Bren said...

I think I forgot to tell you this....

We went dancing (dancing and a prancing) Sat night, and we were 2-stepping to that Charlie Daniels song, "The Devil Went Down To Georgia" well the song is really fast,and so like everyone was all over the place, and we bumped into another couple, and the the guy stepped on me , actually on the side of my foot, and I limped off the dance floor..lol

Today, I noticed it I have a big ol' mother bruise....

DreamerKind said...

@Bren
Where is the Tidy Bowl man when you need him? Blue water or not.

Have you ever had to lift the toilet bowl tank top, put your hands into the bog, and pull the chain to flush?

Strange things float in that water, and for a reason, but what it is I don't know. Maybe for us to keep our hands inside the tidy bowl boat!

Where are you little tidy bowl man, when a babe, needs you so?

I sound so helpless and lost, which is a nice change.

Bren said...

Birdie said she was going to give a recipe sometime last week, then I forgot to go back and look for it....did she do that, and did you get it?

DreamerKind said...

@Bren
That is not an easy song to dance to because the rhythm changes so often, especially during the parts when Daniels is singing.

That's too bad for you and your mother' foot. :X

I'm holding my tongue and not giving any advice. Proud of me?

DreamerKind said...

@Bren
Oh, yes I did get the pecan pie muffin recipe and we have discussed a good topping for them and arrived at caramel, yummy.

I have it copied of course, if you would like it.

Bren said...

R had to replace the float or something one time...that lid is really heavy to lift, isn't it...

That would be a trip to have to keep opening it, till you have it fixed..do you have to call B for that?

Why are we talking shit like this, at this ungodly hour..lol

I say it's R/K fault, they don't want to give us any news...so all the blogs are drying up, and we have to resort to discussing toilets...not fair, I tell you, not fair...

DreamerKind said...

@Bren
I had to clean up over 5000 junk files on the computer to get back here to chat with you.

Call me the Junk File Queen, as it would be true. I managed to accumulate that many over one day, since I go to lots of junk sites apparently, that don't want to leave me.

So, they dig in and slow me down from creating more duplicate files to join the 30,000, I already have staying with me.

I am not only a man magnet but junk and duplicate files love me, even more. Lucky me, in all ways, it's so true.

Pffft, what junk files, what duplicates, what man magnet?

DreamerKind said...

@Bren
Yes, it is their fault for everything in the world, and particularly in my world, since I adore them and don't even know them and get called crazy for that, and who can argue against that?

Rose knows everything in the world Gruff says, so maybe she can tell me how to replace that silly handle?

Nah, just kidding, I won't do it, for I pay rent for things like that to be handled (pun intended but is kind of stupid, go with the flow, ha, ha, ha, there I go again.)

No, B is not my landlord, only my son, so he would definitely not come over to fix it.

What else to do but talk shite? Or talk about waste removal systems (toilets)?

Vancouver will pick up any day now, and the Oscars are soon.

Bren said...

Junk file queen, eh?

Are you a pack rat as well?

DreamerKind said...

@Bren
No, my things are real treasures!

I have some leftover ebay items from when I was a small time, small profiter on there.

Thought I'd put them as inheritances for my darling adopted Roselander family, we'll see.

Truly, I am the opposite of a pack rat for I move every 3 years, and get rid of the old, to replace it with the new, and always less of both.

(Feeling very proud of myself, so am now patting my own back with a magazine.)

DreamerKind said...

@Bren
I see it now! Perhaps, I would have been more successful on ebay, if I could have spelled the word profiteer correctly.

It's a nice delusion to think so, and nice n'easy is my favorite delusion at the moment.

Bren said...

I told you my bestie and I are going to breakfast in a few hours, then casino hopping....(like 2 little bunnies)

We have to eat first, because the slots might take all our moolah, then what?

Are you gonna watch the Oscars? Supposedly a Twilight surprise....

DreamerKind said...

@Bren
Don't you need to get some sleep before you lose your moolah?

Guess I might watch the Oscars if I'm not out partying for J's birthday.

Not sure I care about a Twilight surprise, but I suppose I might be surprised that I did, after the fact.

DreamerKind said...

@Bren
Thought I might read a fanfic called, "Defrosting Edward" that I heard of on RA.

Am curious about what the angle is and what the title might mean. I'll let you know.

DreamerKind said...

@Bren
Did you see that Gwen posted and will be going on vacation soon?

She promised us before, that she will not endanger her life, didn't she?

Gwen, you'd better keep that promise or we'll have to send Neil over the pound you a little.

DreamerKind said...

@Bren
What the fockola! Where is Bren?
What cruckin' things are you doing that matter more than chatting with me? Better be some kind of stimula or else!

Bren said...

Yes, I do believe you are right....I am tired and getting sleepy....and my friend Angela is driving to my house,and she is punctual...After breakfast we will start with the casino nearest my house....Cyndi Lauper was appearing there recently, and she sang "Girls Just Want To Have Fun" just for you, mama....

What can I say, it's been an interesting night..lol..maybe we can blame it on the bosa nova...

Later.

DreamerKind said...

@Bren
Have fun you little bunny, hopping to and from casinos. Hope you win B-I-G.

Sleep in heavenly peace.

DreamerKind said...

Okie-dokie or okey-dokey....

I'll be flying around and above Roseland for a while yet. Give a tally ho, if you want me.

If I don't answer, Sandman took me...

DreamerKind said...

Mr. Sandman

The Chordettes:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xDXT7wC9jrc

Mister Sandman, bring me a dream
(Bung, bung, bung, bung)

Make him the cutest that I've ever seen
(Bung, bung, bung, bung)

Give him two lips like roses in clover
Then tell him that his lonesome nights are over

Sandman, I'm so alone
Don't have nobody to call my own

Please turn on your magic beam
Mister Sandman, bring me a dream

Bung,bung,bung,bung,bung,bung,bung,

Mister Sandman, bring me a dream
Make him the cutest that I've ever seen

Give him the word that I'm not a rover
Then tell him that his lonesome nights are over

Sandman, I'm so alone
Don't have nobody to call my own

Please turn on your magic beam
Mister Sandman, bring me a dream

Mister Sandman, bring me a dream
Give him a pair of eyes with a "come hither" gleam

Give him a lonely heart like Pagliacci
And lots of wavy hair like Liberace

Mister Sandman, someone to hold
Would be so peachy before I'm too old

So please turn on your magic beam
Mister Sandman, bring me

Please, please, please
Mister Sandman, bring me a dream

Thank you/John1948TwoC

Morning Roseland!

Hope everyone had a safe night in my area(was a bit frightening) Alot of tree's down.

Rose I enjoyed the pictures so much. I never tire of that old Vf shoot.

Haven't made it past Don't Fear the Reaper in the comments. (Brings back good memories from sixteen )

Thanks Freddie. Hope you are having a good time. Enjoyed the suitcase story (smile)

Rhonda I'm quacking after yesterday.

TGIF

Louisa miss you. (Full moon pal)

Everyone have a great day!

Linda

olivia said...

Good morning dear Rose and Roseland,

Have been very busy in RL and have only had time to read your postings Rose, and then skim the comments. Love your blog so much, Rose, and enjoy the company of the fellow Roselanders. Thank you again, Rose, for your love, dedication, and intoxication. You are so very appreciated. Hugs to y'all.

Oh my, the VF pics of Rob promise to be heavenly. Beautiful, down to earth, kind, gentle, funny, and intelligent man, inside and out.

I do believe in magic, and soul mates.
May Rob and Kristen have a most wonderful experience these last few months wrapping up BD.

BBL this weekend. Have had to work extra hours at my second home away from home.

Hugs to Smitty, Gruff and Syd too!

olivia said...

Special hug to you, Linda.
Glad you are safe and sound and hopefully feeling better. Always glad to see your bright and shining, beautiful face.
Well, off to work. TGIF : )
(Even though I do work this weekend)

Kay said...

Good Morning Roseland! Hi Linda, Olivia, DK and anyone else out there!

DK - I know you were hoping Rose might have this answer for you, but this is something I've had to do so I'm butting in...lol. If your land lord doesn't do it for you, it is pretty easy....unhook the float, use a wrench to unscrew the bolt behind the handle and take the whole piece to your local large or small hardware store......they will have a replacement, just reverse the process to install. Know the brand when you go in. I am confident you can handle this! (no pun intended...he he)

Have a great day everyone! :D

Kay said...

DK - flapper, not float...sorry....I am sure you knew what I ment though. : /

Melinda said...

It's finally Friday! Hope everyone has a great day.

Love the VF shoot. Pictures were gorgeous. Esp. the one where they are standing on the swing thing. I actually think that's my favorite shot from the shoot for whatever reason.

Super RN Gas Passer said...

ROBERT THOMAS PATTINSON....I hope you see what has happened..lol...because you have been "hiding" we have resorted to talking about TOILETS (loos)!!!!!! Have a GREAT DAY everybody!

Hello everyone! I am snowed in again!!
