Rob and Kristen-- Love Will Keep Us Together

LOOK AT ME!

I love and adore Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart.
But.
I'm finding it harder and harder to stomach the absurd hate
that is thrown at them day after day.
Oh sure... you might just say...
"Don't read it, Rose"
But come on.
It's everywhere you turn.

This fandom goes in cycles.
And right now its in a severe drought cycle.
Never a good thing.
As soon as Rob and Kristen are off working on separate projects
the blisters and sores start to appear.
Oozing with bitterness, jealousy and hatred.
Gross, huh?

The thing is...
Neither Rob or Kristen have been 'caught' doing
anything remotely wrong or that would signify
trouble in their relationship.
Unless you count working as a sign of distress.
And I guess some people will cling to anything
in hopes that in means that Rob and Kristen are 'broken up'.

Why so adorable Kristen??

Idiots.

Complete and utter fools.

In this day and age...
People really think that Rob and Kristen 
don't stay in touch ALL the time?
The keyword here is...
TOUCH.
Where do you think they are when both are off the grid?
Swallowed up by a big black hole for a couple of days?
Kristen has managed to fly in and out
(and in and out... and oh yeah... IN and OUT)
of many cities...
without nary a peep.
(OK... nary looks funny...)
And yet...
People still want to believe she hasn't been to Toronto?
Heh.
;)


Why so fucking cute Rob?

Oh and...
Someone
Somewhere
said that Rob and Kristen "Skype"
to keep in touch
(Keyword TOUCH)
And everytime SKYPE is thrown into a conversation...
I hear howling about how 
"ROB DOESNT SKYPE!"

Well.
Did Rob say that?
Or
Did Tom say that?
And just how LONG ago did Tom say that?
And what makes you think Tom
was telling anyone the truth about it?
What is stopping Rob and Kristen
from doing it now?
Some old rumor that they don't?
Right.
OK.

Idiots.

I love the happy smirk on her lovely face...

OK.
Enough of the stupidity.
It really does give me a headache to read such bullshit.


On to some good stuff.
And by good stuff...
I mean Rob and Kristen.
It just goes together doesn't it?
Rob and Kristen...
And believe you me
They are still together.

Anyway.

Robert.
Walking.

You know what it does to me...
I've gone on and on and on and on
and on.
About how mesmerizing and completely
INTOXICATING
Robert in motion is to me...
How I lose my train of thought
The sky is blue.
And how I fumble for words...
Pizza good.
And I generally make a fool out of myself
MARRY ME ROBERT!
All over some pictures of Rob walking.
But...
After the latest slew of walking pics came out...
I noticed something else...
Something even more intriguing
More charming
More adorkable
More Robert.

Pictures of Robert 
Trying to stop walking.
OH MY.
There's something innately charming
and so fucking delicious
about Rob trying to stop moving in one direction...
and trying to go in another.


Let's take a look...

You're just too good to be true.


Can't take my eyes off of you...


Pardon the way that I stare.
There's nothing else to compare.


The sight of you leaves me weak.
There are no words left to speak,

*Sigh*

I'm just a fool for a man in red pants...
a beanie...
and scruffy sneakers.
All awkward and sweet.

Which brings us to...

Is this happening in Chicago too?


So I've heard that Tom is in Chicago with Sienna
while she is filming her latest movie.
Is it true?
Probably.
There have been 'sightings' 
although no pictures have surfaced
and for some reason when people talk about her
being with someone...
its always an 'unidentified' male companion.
Really?
Why does that annoy me?
I think Tom is very identifiable.
Incredibly.
Completely.

I used to kinda think
(wishfully)
That Sienna and Tom were just kinda doing 
stuff because Sienna likes to have her picture taken...
Especially since everytime a picture was taken of them...
She would be smiling broadly into the camera.
But now?
Well.
You don't follow someone all the way to Chicago
from London
On a whim.
You know what I mean?
And while a part of me likes the thought of Tom 
being only 90 minutes away from me...
A part of me is sad that he might really
Really
Be into Sienna for real.

(See how easy it is to admit that people are together?
It's really not hard to do at all.
People show up all over the place together
time and time again...
You get the picture.)

Ah well.


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

S for Strong.
Love is Strong.
And so is Robert and Kristens...

S for Sturridge.
Oh Thomas.
I love you.
Even if you are with Sienna.
And guess what?
I wont be starting a NONenna blog anytime soon.

With acceptance comes peace.



OH!
Almost forgot.

Great Post Rose - and I am really over the whole insane side of te fandom. All the stuff of late ( as always), but I am trying my hardest to just ignore it all and just enjoy all the pic goodness of late!

I love, love, LOVE Rob in the Rehearsal pics - the whole outfit I love and as you said sweet/sexy in all of them. I have looked at them already way to many times today, but having one of those days that I need lots of cheeing up. Enter smiley Rob in red, check shirt and beanie - brighten up any day!

Off to London again this weekend and I can not wait!

Happy Hump day to all, ignore all the negativity and just enjoy the all pretty!!

Groovie said...

Hello everyone!

Good post, cute pix!

I'm just waking up now, having a good time on vacation, hope u are all doing well! Happy Hump Day!

Doesn`t that describe you know who perfectly? JS ;p Misery loves company and delusional people seem to be miserable.Full cycle,bb. FULL CYCLE. LOL

Oh and as always, magnificent post,bb.♥ NGL, Rob walking is a very mesmerizing sight. :D

Sydney said...

I got back late Monday night from my vacation, and haven't seen any of the hate. It was so pleasant. I'm still avoiding it too...so it's like it's not even there.

Hope everyone had a great weekend. Vegas was so much fun, but last night I went to bed at 6pm and slept about 13 hours, so I'm still recovering. Totally worth it though.

Freddie said...

Hi all. I’m just popping in quickly. I hope everyone is well.

Rose, I absolutely love the pictures of Rob trying to stop moving. They made me smile.

Hope – I hope you are well. You asked about painting the other day. We’re doing a little – mainly some touch up work – but we’re changing out carpets and window treatments today, and may try to retile part of a floor. I hope the heat has abated somewhat since Monday.

Birdie – sorry to hear that the rats are still in residence. Rat palace – that sounds like the Barbie Dream House for rodents.

IB – I just read your comment from the other day. I’m so very sorry to hear of the loss of your friend. It is very difficult to lose someone so young. Like Kay said, I’m sure they are just thankful that you are there.

Super – sorry to hear about your two friends as well. Even though anticipated it isn’t easy.

Groovie and Barbara – enjoy your vacations.

Sydney - glad to hear you had a great time in Vegas. Did you break the bank?

I hope everyone else is well and that you all have a great day.

Claire said...

Wonky Legged Rob is funny LOL

And Kristen looks smokin in lycra. I'd hate her if I didn't love her so much HaHa.

Freddie said...

Oh Rose,

I just noticed the Green Sheep socks. How cute. I wonder where I can get a pair....LOL.

Kay said...

Nice post and pictures, Rose. :)
I think "idiots" sums it up pretty well, though I tend to think of other descriptions for them when I read their BS.

Take care everyone out there in Roseland....happy humpday!

....now where did I put that dang decoder ring?

Super RN Gas Passer said...

Haha...Great post today....I am swooning over "Walking Rob with a Twist"..can we have that with lime and salt? See...I think you gave away the secret..It makes a huge difference when decoding to know that the Olives are organic and stuffed with garlic! Now we really don't even need the decoder rings after all! Happy Wednesday Everybody and FREDDIE..can you come to my house next? I have lots of projects!

Berry said...

Love love love the green sheep socks! Great post as usual Rose. I am staying away from all the hate! Have a great day everyone!

felicity said...

bahahah...i was laughing sooo hard after reading the last part of the post...

great rose..always a plessure! i can never understand all the hate that is going on...why those nonnies think that rob and kristen are not together anymore ....or together with someone else...but hey...we don't neet to understand them...because we know better!! ;)

i heart you...read you ...hugs

PL said...

OMG!

I can't believe Rose is so blatantly giving us clues. What does it all mean?


Hi everyone! I made it back from shopping and not once did I have shopping cart rage today. Not even when the lady in her motorized cart backed into the freezer causing her watermelon to start heading my way.

Super RN Gas Passer said...

PL...It is dangerous to go grocery shopping!

Kenzz said...

Rose, a spot-on letter-of-love! The walking pics are too cute for words... and Kris in her Yoga outfit (gawd, no wonder they hate her!!)

PL: You are the picture of patience and serenity! lol

Super: "Walking Rob with a twist"... love it, and clearly we drink too much here in Roseland!

Have fun you gals on vaca... welcome back Sydney (Is it true...what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas? Hope not, since we'd love to hear about any escapades!)

Happy Wednesday one and all (but especially Smitty, Gruff, Syd, and dear Rose)

Luv London said...

My first thought when seeing all of the new walking pics from yesterday was that Rose would be a happy girl!

I will never understand the haters if I live to be a hundred! Get a life - why are they spending so much time on someone they don't like? And so many comments I read are down right slanderous (if that is a word). I might start a petition for Rob and Kristen to sue these losers!

And how cute is K going to yoga? I do yoga and sure don't look like that!

I will be out and about on the streets of Chicago this weekend. Hope I see Tom. If I do, I won't take his picture, won't tweet his location and won't talk to him!

Rosey said...

Hey Rose, Sorry about all the BS you have to cope with every day. Hope you can ignore it enough to carry on posting. What would we do without them? Gorgeous pix today. Both Rob and Kristen look so beautiful and of course they are still together. (Quote) 'Where else am I gonna go?')

Rhonda said...

Hi Rose,

Awww, nice post. I love the pics of Rob trying to stop walking, so cute! Kristen looks great as well, and of course they stay in touch. That's what people in a committed relationship do :)

Sydney- I'm glad you had fun in Vegas.

Barbara & Groovie- Enjoy your vacations.

Annie- ((Hugs))

Hi everyone- I hope it's been a good one :)

Hope said...

Freddie...You took the words right out of my mouth!! HaHa...Where can I find a pair of those socks?!!
Sounds like you are getting a lot done with your mom. I know she loves having you there.

Super...NO....Freddie is coming to my house NEXT!! lol

Rose...LUCKY YOU...Tom just 90 minutes away! Terrific post today...loved every word.

Rhonda said...

Almost forgot..

Based on the photos I've seen of Tom and Sienna, they look very happy together, and I wish him all the best :)

Rose, I want a pair of green sheep socks to go along with my decoder ring :)

Hi, Rose!!

'IDIOTS' that´s a perfect word to describe some of the people on this fandom! I've been trying to stay away as much as possible from places like twitter because I cannot stand anymore the hate and the drama that been around....it's exhausting.
Always the same bullshit stories every freaking time Rob and Kristen are separate due to work reasons...and what happens in the end....Rob and Kristen end up together as always!!!!!!

Anyway,

Love love the pics of Rob trying to Stop walking!! and loved the pics from the rehearsals..not many men can pull off the red pants and a beanie...but...Rob can..he looks abolutely adorable and sexy!

And Kristen...she's SO gorgeous even in Spandex!

Hope everyone is having a wonderful day.

Be happy

Motherhin said...

Rob's confused feet make me laugh. His feet don't seem to be receiving the messages from his brain because his head always seems to be on one track yet his feet are going in a different motion all together. Adorkable, yes it is.:)

Love that we got to see a little of Kristen doing normal life things. See you strange hater people, she's a normal girl, doing normal things, waiting until she starts her new job. I mean really what else would she be doing?

I've read a bit from the Becausewearenot posts and I've got to say that the people they copy and paste from are sad. I honestly have a feeling of pity for them because they A. have never been in a normal relationship since they can't identify one when they see it and B. get off on tearing apart a perfectly normal person that none of them know simply to make themselves feel better about their choice of liking Robert Pattinson, an actor that will never even know who they are.*shrugs*

Claire said...

@ Motherhin

Your first paragraph describes it perfectly, thanks for putting it into words

PMSL

Rhonda said...

Motherhin- Great comment :)

Fiorels said...

Hello Rose and Roseland :)

Great post today! :)
Funny and smart as always haha
"Tom. I love you. Even if you are with Sienna"
lol Rose.
That's what a real fan, or anyone who says to admire one person a lot, should say..
Too bad not everyone is that smart or well.. that normal at least, cause that would be normality.

Motherin- excellent post :)

Sydney- glad you had fun in Vegas :)

Freddie - good luck with redoing things :)

IB- I read what happened and wanted to say how much I am sorry about this. I know words don't do that much but thinking about stuff like this really makes me.. thinking about stuff sometimes; Be strong, and we are here for you.

*warmest virtual hugs* to Annie, Super, MSCL.
Always here to listen.

Hi groovie, Hope, kay, Katy, PL, Rhonda, Kenzz and everyone else! :)
have a good day/night you all!
I'm off to read a book lol

And btw, the post made me think of a cute song I listened to some time ago haha

angelica1 said...

Great pictures Rose! I really can't fathom how seeing a couple once,while both are going about their working day,equates to they haven't seen each other for 3 weeks (or months,depending on which pile of crap you read) and have split up.Clearly an entire thought process is beyond these sad rejects from the human race.

Hi everyone!

PL, I want to shop where you do :)

Sydney said...

Yes, thank you, for those asking - I had a ball in Vegas. And I mostly remember it. But it was exhausting and so expensive I can't even begin to describe how much money I spent. I did win $18 though so that'll help me not even a little bit.

I didn't go to bed once before 4am and we were up by 9am every morning to get chairs at the pool. So - yeah. I'm barely functioning.

And I did get into a little trouble...I had taken a picture of the hottest guy in the universe getting out of the pool on my cellphone. I forgot about it when I was showing pictures to my bf. It looks like the guy was walking right towards me. Kinda funny. I mean, I can look right? And oh was he worth the looking.

I just saw the pictures of Kristen at yoga. Looking hot!

Super RN Gas Passer said...

SYDNEY...YES...You can "look"!!!!!!! Welcome back to the world of reality...Rob, Kris, Tom,Rose, decoder rings,crazies, Nonnies, Ninnies a n d Walmartians!

sjjw said...

Hi all of Roseland! Kay, Kenzz, IB, Fio, Katy, Rhonda, Angelica and Super! *waves* to all I might have missed...wonderful post Rose. The bs and bitter hatred is very very hard to stomach. This is about the only place I can stand to come these days.

May, you were so correct - Misery does love company and those delusional do seem to gather together to share their misery, don't they?

Happy almost 4th of July weekend. We are off to the coast of NC for some sun and surf. I hope you all have a safe and happy one!

DreamerKind said...

Happy Day to you All!

Great post Rose!!
Five stars, a 10 out of 10, 100% wonderfulness!!!

Feeling happy from reading the post and all of the comments about it. Slaphappy, DK.

Tom in Chicago with Sienna, and right now, only 60 miles from me, thrills and delights. Guess he is visiting and if he moves here, he's a super smart man.

For sure, if I saw or ran into him, I'd shout, "Tom, it's DK/Dreamer from Roseland!", cause I just know that he sees the songs I dedicate to him. Hope Syd doesn't mind, for he's the only #2 son and favo.

Celebs live a normal life here, for we Chicagolanders pride ourselves on being, far too cool to celebrity stalk.

Brian Wilson, the great Beach Boys composer/singer, lived near me for 3 years. He's coming into town for a performance in a few weeks, too. Gotta go.

Been apartment hunting myself and will soon have some direction. Meanwhile, Rose and Roselanders, thanks for making sense of reality, sharing laughs, dreams and sorrows. We are the world.

For sjjw:

Surfin' USA

If everybody had an ocean
Across the U.S.A.
Then everybody'd be surfin'
Like Californ-I-A

You'd see 'em wearin' their baggies
Huarachi sandals, too
A bushy bushy blonde hairdo
Surfin' U.S.A.

You'd catch 'em surfin at Del Mar (Inside, outside, U.S.A.)
Ventura County line
Santa Cruz and Tressels,
Australia's Narabine,
All over Manhattan,
And down Doheny way

Everybody's gone surfin'
Surfin U.S.A.

We'll all be plannin' out a route
We're gonna take real soon
We're waxin' down our surfboards
We can't wait for June
We'll all be gone for the summer
Were on safari to stay
Tell the teacher we're surfin'
Surfin' U.S.A.

At Haggerty's and Swami's
Pacific Palisades
San Onofre and Sunset
Redondo Beach, L.A.
All over La Jolla
At Waiamea Bay

Everybody's gone surfin'
Surfin' U.S.A.

WIPEOUT

BACK TO Surfin

Everybody's gone surfin'
Surfin' U.S.A.

Thank you/musicmastahh

dottie said...

Rose, you are setting the example in acceptance. Good for you! 90 min isn't very far at all. Maybe Tom could ditch Sienna (just for the day) and meet you somewhere in the middle!

Sydney-That's your story and you're sticking to it, right?? LOL Glad you had fun in "Sin City" ;)

Good luck with the apt hunt, DK.

Hello to everyone else!

Lmfao,

I gotta hand it to you Rose,
you're pretty fkn awesome

:)

Barbara Fenwick said...

Rose, I know exactly how you feel. As soon as Rob and Kris are working on separate projects, the rumors start. I have heard so many, and I don't go looking, they just seem to find me. I refuse to believe Rob or Kris would do anything to hurt the other. Their love is there for everybody to see, if you are looking. I hope you can find a way to ignore all the hate, Rose, because we need you. Take care Roselanders and keep the faith--Rob and Kris are together and are more in love than ever. Oh, the picture of Kris leaving the gym, was she wearing the black bracelet she and Rob used to wear. It looked like it to me. Take a look, and let me know.

olivia said...

Thank you Rose for all that you do. Your posts are so appreciated. This is the sane place to be for Rob and Kristen fans.

Rob and Kristen are truly unique souls that are so very fortunate to have found each other. It is so refreshing and positive to catch glimpses of their very busy days.

I do admire their dedication and commitment to be involved in high quality projects. Cosmopolis is looking like it will be a brilliant film and SWatH has gathered together an impressive cast. Along with BDI & BDII and Bel Ami, there will be so many breathtaking opportunities to see Rob and Kristen shine on the big screen. It's just so darn hard waiting! : )

Groovie, glad your vacay is going well.
Sydney, rest up well, LV is like being in another world...happy to see you had a great time.
Freddie, am so impressed by your remodeling projects. So very wonderful that you are able to help out your folks with your skills.
Barbara, enjoy you vacay.
Rose and DK, you both should rendezvous with Tom for dinner and drinks, or at least lunch and drinks while Sienna is working on set.
Good luck DK on the apartment hunting. Are you looking in one of the downtown Chicago neighborhoods or in the suburbs?

Saw Midnight in Paris and I highly recommend it. Woody Allen did a great job writing and directing it and the cast was excellent. The entire film is a loving series of postcard vignettes of Paris with beautiful photography. Loved all the 1920's and 1890's literary and arts references.....very well done and quite fun.

Have a lovely evening.
Hugs for all y'all, dear Roselanders.
Hugs for Smitty, Gruff and Syd too.
Life is good. Enjoy.

*I*Believe* said...

Dear Friends,
Thank you so much for your words of encouragement! You are all the reason why Roseland is such a wonderful place :)

Rose,
I just love your discussion of"awkward sweet Rob." He is a real guy...that's why we love him! Kristen is such a lucky girl. I am so happy to see Kristen so happy. Also, I'm loving the red pants!

Rhonda said...

Hello!

Just peeking in for a moment...

Olivia- I saw Midnight in Paris too. I thought it was a beautiful movie.

Sjjw- I hope you have a great time in NC.

DK- Good luck with the apartment hunting.

Freddie- You're a great help to your parents. I'm sure they appreciate you very much :)

Have a good night everyone,

I've been out late, with the son's softball team again, along with new buds & beauties "ironworker" & "voice divine", too.....even my daw showed up at Jokers Bar.

The team didn't win this one, after winning two games prior, and my son played, but I didn't go. So, who is the jinxster that makes the team lose, me or my son? We'll find out soon. I'll clue you in, don't worry.

Here's a link to a Cosmopolis fansite, which I'm sharing because there are fab pics of Rob signing stuff, and a very cool tale about it. Hope you enjoy this:

@Olivia & Rhonda
I am looking both in and out of the City. Good suggestion O, about Rose and I meeting Tom & Sienna.

Why then, Rose and I would actually meet, too. Swee-et! Email me, Rose, for deets.

@Tom
Ring me up, I'm in the phone book or google me, in cyberspace, lol.

@Super
So enjoyed your post about Monday's "kicked butt" status at your work, and how since everyone in the hospital (practically) had been operated on, were quiet, as they should have been. LMFAO!

@dottie & all well wishers
Thanks for that well wishing re: apts and everything that's been said before.

@Rob & Kristen
Never doubt that I am a true fan either, just not very vocal, but definitely loco, about the subject of Ux2.

Our Love Is Here To Stay

Frank Sinatra & Nelson Riddle Orch-1955:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jeDEWKLNppM

It's very clear
Our love is here to stay
Not for a year
But ever and a day

The radio
And the telephone
And the movies that we know
May just be passing fancies
And in time may go

But oh my dear
Our love is here to stay
Together we're going
A long long way

In time
The Rockies may crumble
Gibraltar may tumble
They're only made of clay
But
Our love
Is here to stay

Thank you/Nocaro

Happy Birthday Wania
Remember That You Are:

Simply The Best

Tina Turner:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aIrCFrFpHvw

I call you when I need you, my heart's on fire
You come to me, come to me wild and wired
When you come to me
Give me everything I need
Give me a lifetime of promises and a world of dreams
Speak a language of love like you know what it means
And it can't be wrong
Take my heart and make it strong baby

You're simply the best, better than all the rest
Better than anyone, anyone I've ever met
I'm stuck on your heart, and hang on every word you say
Tear us apart, baby I would rather be dead

In your heart I see the star of every night and every day
In your eyes I get lost, I get washed away
Just as long as I'm here in your arms
I could be in no better place

You're simply the best, better than all the rest
Better than anyone, anyone I've ever met
I'm stuck on your heart, and hang on every word you say
Tear us apart, baby I would rather be dead

Each time you leave me I start losing control
You're walking away with my heart and my soul
I can feel you even when I'm alone
Oh baby, don't let go

Thank you/NightSpeaker

For Us All

Hard Times (Come Again No More)

Kate & Anna McGarrigle, Rufus Wainwright, Emmylou Harris, Mary Black, Karen Matheson, Rod Paterson

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4YrfLnlrquo

Let us pause in life's pleasures
And count its many tears
While we all sup sorrow with the poor
There's a song that will linger
Forever in our ears
Oh, hard times
Come again no more

'Tis the song, the sigh of the weary
Hard times, hard times
Come again no more
Many days you have lingered
All around my cabin door
Oh, hard times, come again no more

While we seek mirth and beauty
And music light and gay
There are frail forms fainting at the door
Though their voices are silent
Their pleading looks will say
Oh, hard times, come again no more

There's pale drooping maiden
Who toils her life away
With a worn out heart
Whose better days are o'er
Though her voice it would be merry
'Tis sighing all the day

Tis a sigh that is wafted
Across the troubled wave
Tis a wail that is heard
Upon the shore
Tis a dirge that is murmured
Around the lowly grave
Oh hard times
Come again no more

-Stephen Foster

There's A New Day Coming

Harry Roy-1933:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KySAa2DaROU

New day's coming,
As sure as you're born,
There's a new day coming,
Start tooting your horn

See that new day dawning,
Let's all knock on wood,
Never say "Good morning",
It's bound to be good

New world singing,
It's going to be fine,
New clothes swinging
On everyone's line

Joy bells ringing,
For your folks and mine,
There's a new day coming soon!

Thank you/RReady555

Make Your Own Kind Of Music

Cass Elliot:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nC7zSY5O6FU

Nobody can tell ya
There's only one song
Worth singing

They may try and sell ya
Cause it hangs them up to see
Someone like you

But you've gotta make
Your own kind of music
Sing your own special song
Make your own kind of music
Even if nobody else sings along

You're gonna be nowhere
The loneliest kind of lonely
It may be rough going
Just to do your thing's
The hardest thing to do

So if you cannot take my hand
And if you must be going
I will understand

You've gotta make
Your own kind of music
Sing your own special song

Make your own kind of music

Fare well, all.

Loved the pics Rose & the usual wise words.

Love the lyrics under the pics ?
Is the song 'I love you baby' - DK ?
Am really enjoying your song choices too .. And your comment "we are the world" - so true lovely DK.

Rose & DK - I am jealous that you have the charming Tom S. so close to you :)

Kristen looks beautiful (as always) & very happy in the pics!
Love the pics of Robs legs having a mind of their own- very similar to the shots of little Bear ;)

IB- I am very Sorry to hear of your loss - this must be a
very difficult time. Hope you are getting through it ok!

Hi to all in Roseland ..
Hope your week is going well :)

olivia said...

Good afternoon dear Rose and Roseland,

Saw a very cute side by side pet and owner comparison of Rob and Bear, both leaping and letting those long legs fly; you could definitely tell that the two belonged to each other! : )

A little lunch break music to liven up the early afternoon! Love this band. Really want to see them in concert one day.

I will raise a glass of sangría with friends at my favorite TexMex lunch spot in honor of Rob and Kristen and all their hard work. Hope they get a bit of a break soon in order to enjoy, relax and recharge.

Hugs for y'all!

(Rhonda, glad you liked the movie! I was surprised by O.Wilson; I thought he did a great job and his voice was especially nice and right in this role.)

DreamerKind said...

The very happiest of holiday weekend days to us all!

@Tigerlily
Don't be envious, for Tom is "so close and yet so far".

However, I will say, that the air around town, smells sweeter by their presence, imo.

Sweet love does that, for lovers and others, who see it in that way.

For Tigerlily:

Can't Take My Eyes Off Of You

Frankie Valli & Four Seasons:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NGFToiLtXro

You're just too good to be true.
Can't take my eyes off you.
You'd be like Heaven to touch.
I wanna hold you so much.

At long last love has arrived
And I thank God I'm alive.
You're just too good to be true.
Can't take my eyes off you.

Pardon the way that I stare.
There's nothing else to compare.
The sight of you leaves me weak.
There are no words left to speak

But if you feel like I feel,
Please let me know that it's real.
You're just too good to be true.
Can't take my eyes off you.

I love you, baby,
And if it's quite alright,
I need you, baby,
To warm a lonely night.

I love you, baby.
Trust in me when I say:
Oh, pretty baby,
Don't bring me down, I pray.

Oh, pretty baby, now that I found you, stay
And let me love you, baby.
Let me love you.

Thank you/CaptnKiller

@Olivia

What a wonderful band you linked for us.
I'm reposting it so I can put the song in the Roseland archives.
Salsa and Celtic music interwoven, a "must dance now" sound.
Thanks un dulce!

Hello Roseland!!

Busy summer for me so far. I hope all is well on your end. :)

Super RN Gas Passer said...

30..I have been wondering where you were!

DK..Hi...Just got in from visiting grandchild...thought I would see whats going on in Roseland

DreamerKind said...

@Super & 30:
I'm floating on the telecommunications waves (on a phone call) but hovering around here. Hello, you duckies!

Rhonda said...

Hi Roseland,

I hope everyone enjoyed a nice day.

I spent most of mine at the pool with my nephews. We did karaoke poolside. Lol, our biggest hit was with The Black Eyed Peas..'I Gotta Feeling'...hehehe :)

Olivia- I agree, he was just right for that role.

30- I hope things start to slow down for you soon.

Have a great night everyone- Lots of love :)

Super RN Gas Passer said...

DK..Haha..why am I not surprised you are on the phone? What are your plans this weekend? I will be going out with girlfriends tomorrow night then Im going to the observatory Sat nite..

Hello RHONDA..Sounds like you had a great day of sun and fun!

wania said...

Hi Roseland!

Great, great post Rose! You're the best!

Aiai..."sight"... Why "some people" don't believe:
1) Kristen went and go in Toronto always;
2) Rob went meeting Kris in after party " A Better life";
3) Kristen working pre K11 with her mother?
Why???

I look Rob...handsome, lovely, big smile, happier, is so him ...I look Kris...gorgeous, happier too, discret, Monalisa's smile ( who knows a big secret and is happy with this) ...
Same shirt, sharing wardrobe, rings in her fingers...
Both alone with their jobs... Everything normal...
Something wrong? Nop! Everything right in the paradise of Rob and Kris...ok ? Yeh! Just it!
And I happy with that and Rob's feet....rsrsrsrs...

DK...you didn't forget me...awwnn...
Miss...I'm in tears here...blame you...you're so cute and lovely friend...lots of love and hugs for you...thanks!

Wania

wania said...

I loved my music! Song and letter beautiful! Tina is awesome!

DK, people like you make me better...Thanks for that!

Freddie said...

Hi everybody,

I’m just dropping in quickly to say hello.

Happy Canada day to my fellow Canadians and Happy July 4th long weekend to my friends in the States. To everyone else abroad, I hope things are well with you all.

Talk to you soon. Take care.

DreamerKind said...

Get Going!

I Can't Get Started

Sammy Davis Jr. (Letterman show):
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ls33JN395OE

I've been around the world in a plane
I've settled revolutions in Spain
The North Pole I have charted
But I can't get started with you

Why on the golf course
I'm under par
And Eddie Murphy has asked me to star

I've got the house
And the show place
But still I can't get no place
With you

You're so supreme
Lyrics I write of you
Scheme
Just for the sight of you

They scream, both day and night of you
But what good does it do?

Why on the golf course
I'm rather short
And when I go to England
I ask me to court

I'm so downhearted
Cause I can't get started
With you

In 1929 I sold short
And all the troubles I had
I never went to court

I've got me so downhearted
Cause I can't get
Started with you

Thank you/garyhopkins

Happy Thoughts!

Holiday

Madonna:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1qJaq3jv2P0

If we took a holiday
Took some time to celebrate
Just one day out of life
It would be
It would be so nice

Everybody spread the word
We're gonna have a celebration
All across the world
In every nation

It's time for the good times
Forget about the bad times, oh yeah
One day to come together
To release the pressure
We need a holiday

You can turn this world around
And bring back all of those happy days
Put your troubles down
It's time to celebrate

Let love shine
And we will find
A way to come together
And make things better
We need a holiday

Holiday celebrate
Holiday, celebration
Come together in every nation

Thank you/TheMadonnaCN

DreamerKind said...

@Wania
So para voce!

@Super
I am a slave to phones, but willing to serve.

My plans? Midget wrestling watching, bbq eating, Texas band listening, lake swimming, karaoke-ing, with pals.

One kid is at a resort in Wisconsin, and the other juggling pizza selling, bartendering, and celebrating the 4th.

235 Years, let's do it right, from now on, morning until night!

Word verf: terse
A real word for a change, and wouldn't you know it, something I'm not.

DreamerKind said...

Oh, I've darkened my hair (dark blonde/brunette) and met new friends who haven't seen a blonde me. They still like me. Who am I, really?

I'd change my avi, except I'm not sure I'll keep this look, but it is quite fun to be a different looking me.

And, before you start laughing, I still have not found the USB cord, nor have I looked for it.

It will appear when it is supposed to, so I can post my hat pics.

Thinking that this quiet, honor-making weekend would be perfect for posting hats, don't you?

Must say that I am sentimental about this holiday, and not about seeing fireworks, but because there were folks that came ahead of us, to guide and lead us on.

Today, there are others, like them, steeped with integrity, waiting in the wings. Could it be, we, the people?

Who will toast with me tonight?

DreamerKind said...

Don't Worry-You're Fine

Who Can It Be Now

Men At Work:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yXEf6TaztY8

Who can it be knocking at my door
Go away, don't come down here no more
Can't you see that it's late at night
Very' tired and I'm not feeling right

All I wish is to be alone
Stay away, don't you invade my home
Best if you hang outside
Don't' come in I'll only run and hide
Who can it be now

Who can it be knocking at my door
Make no sound
Tiptoe across the floor
If he hears
He will knock all day

I'll be trapped and here I'll have to stay
I've done no harm
I keep to myself

There's nothing wrong
With my state of mental health
I like it here with my childhood friend
Here it comes
Those feelings again
Who can it be now

He said the man come to take me away
Why do they follow me
It's not the future that I can see...
It's just my fantasy

Who can it be now
Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh Ah-ho

Thank you/TheMusicChanneV1

wania said...

DK nice surprise! The beautiful music and to write in portuguese for me...what honor, my friend! I loved it!

DreamerKind said...

@Wania
It is fun to learn old things in new languages or new things in old. You know what I mean. Rest well.

@Bren
Miss you, steady on.

@Birdie
Can't seem to stay here long enough to meet you, but still, I am laughing over the fun ole times.

@Gwen
See you later this weekend.

@Marjorie1211
Hope you and yours have a great holiday weekend.
*************************************
I'm rolling in the deep, the deep part of my mind, so I'll be back later to empty my thoughts or fill them up on Roseland turf.

A Long Weekend-The Perfect Time

Never Gonna Leave This Bed

Maroon5:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dHWYP3LdKRQ

You push me, I don't have the strength to
Resist or control you
So take me down, take me down

You hurt me but do I deserve this?
You make me so nervous
Calm me down, calm me down

Wake you up in the middle of the night to say
I will never walk away again
I'm never gonna leave this bed

So come here and never leave this place
Perfection of your face
Slows me down, slows me down

So fall down, I need you to trust me
Go easy, don't rush me
Help me out, why don't you help me out?

Wake you up in the middle of the night to say
I will never walk away again
I'm never gonna leave this bed

So you say go, it isn't worth it
And I say no, it isn't perfect
So I stay and still
I'm never gonna leave this bed

Take it, take it all, take all that I have
I'd give it all away just to get you back
And fake it, fake it, I'll take what I can get

Knocking so loud
Can you hear me yet?
Try to stay awake
But you can't forget

Wake you up in the middle of the night to say
I will never walk away again
I'm never gonna leave this bed

You say go, it isn't worth it
And I say no, it isn't perfect
So I stay and still
I'm never gonna leave this bed

Take it, take it all
Take all that I have

Thank you/CassanderMakedon

Whispering
(Instrumental)

Unknown Band-Outstanding Polish version 1934
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=REScVgFqS0c

Whispering
While you cuddle near me

Whispering
So no one can hear me

Each little whisper
Seems to cheer me

I know it's true
There's no one
Dear, but you

You're whispering
Why you'll never leave me

Whispering
Why you'll never grieve me

Whisper
And say that you believe me
Whispering, "I love you."

Thank you/240252

Birdie said...

DK,
Saw your note. I have been burning the candle at both ends and actually overslept yesterday. A first for me(in a long times). My favorite sister and her family are coming today for a week. We have a big family get-together on the 4th. Our town has a big celebration every year with lots going on, so should be a good time.
Your plans sound fun. I would love the live music. I think you should put a picture up of the new hair color. We will all be curious. You've been doing a great job of pumping out the songs lately. I've missed chatting with you. I am still waiting for a hat picture!

DreamerKind said...

May the breezes drift through your windows, setting your mind at ease, and body to peaceful slumbering.

TGIF Roseland! I hope everyone has something fun planned for the holiday week end.

My boys just left for Louisiana. They will be there for most of July. It was a strange feeling watching them drive off this morning. I felt those apron strings stretching and didn't like it one bit! When did they get old enough to drive 2 states/8 hrs away w/o parental supervision?!?

Thanks for letting me vent about my empty nest. (like you had a choice! haha)

Have a great Friday! Hugs to all my buds!

Emilia said...

Fio I saw ur message thanks!

I hope u all have a great weekend. I'm freaking out lol cause I'm getting my hair done and this woman just like cut a huge god it's like she just cut alot! My hair is kind of long and I like it that way! She's like just wait and see its just layers so i hope it's not bad! Sorry but I'm like freaking and no one is picking up their phone! Bye!

olivia said...

Happy Friday dear Rose and Roselanders,

Beautiful new banner. Thank you Rose.

To all our wonderful Canadians, Happy Canada Day/Dominion Day! Hope y'all have a fun and a relaxing, extended weekend.

Used to look forward to the fireworks over the Detroit River years ago when we would go downtown with a large group of friends to celebrate at the Detroit-Windsor International Freedom Festival! I was told that now it is just called the "River Days" on the U.S. side.

Happy start to the 4th of July to those who are fortunate enough to begin their extended weekend! Even though I will work every day, I will enjoy First Friday tonight, which is a local art, music and yummie food stroll in our local downtown, and then tomorrow, feast on some delicious grilled kebabs and strawberry shortcake at a friend's neighborhood games night. No fireworks allowed this year due to the burn ban.

Enjoy the day! Hugs for y'all!

PL said...

Happy Canada Day! Not sure what that is about but wishing it just the same.

dottie,

Do not worry about your empty nest. It will never be empty because they keep coming back over and over and over again.

Olivia,

You seem to be nostalgic for Michigan lately. We will be having fireworks here as they shoot them over the lake. Strawberries still have a week or so left. Muskmelon (I think Michiganders are the only ones to call it that) aren't until closer to August. And last but not least, the Traverse City Cherry Festival starts tomorrow.
