Robert and Thomas- You've Got a Friend

Since Rob and Kristen have decided to become
all unseen and out of sight
I've decided to focus on other things.
Don't be goofy...
Of course Rob will be involved in SOME way!

It's no secret that I absolutely adore Tom Sturridge.
I have Rob to thank for showing me the light.
The Tom Light.

I was barely aware of Tom Sturridge when I
first became infatuated with Robert.
I mean...
I saw the narrow guy who sometimes was lurking
behind Rob in pictures...
Trying to stay out of sight.
I read where they were friends from school days.
I thought it was sweet that the two managed to 
stay connected when Rob became Edward
and his star rocketed into the atmosphere...

Rob seems to the the kind of guy who is intensely loyal
to those he loves.
I sense that from Tom as well.
I've seen interviews with Tom where they
always go to asking him about Rob.
And I've seen Tom say that he doesn't
want to add to the oceans of words out there
about his friend.
His friend.

I love that Tom doesn't try and capitalize on his
friendship with Robert.
He doesn't name drop
He doesn't attach himself to Rob every chance he gets.
He quietly remains Rob's friend.

And truly?
Almost every time you see of picture of Rob and Tom together...
They are smiling.
Good friends.
Good times.

Can you imagine what it must be like
to hang out with Rob and Tom?
Remember when I used to say that my 'fantasy'
of Rob was just to kinda hang out with him...
have a few drinks
listen to music...
You can add Tom to that fantasy.
I know that sounds all kinds of kinky.
But unlike a lot of people in this fandom
My thoughts of Rob and Tom 
aren't exactly sexual in nature.
Don't get me wrong...
I find both of these guys incredibly sexy
in their own way.

But it's never been about the size of certain body parts
or the thoughts of 'rolling in the hay'
with one or the other.
I just think they would be such fun 
to hang around with.
2 adorkably funny guys
with piercing eyes...
floppy hair
scruffy or beardy
Beanies or baseball hats
Hobo-riffic clothes.

What's not to love??

What's not to love?

Then I think of Kristen.
She gets to hang out with both of them.
At one point they were quite the trio
Going everywhere together.
And if I didn't love Kristen
I would be all jealous of her.
Oh who am I kidding?
I'm extremely jealous of her.

Because not only does she get to have
the love and devotion of Robert Pattinson...
Oh no...
As if that's not enough.
She also has the love and admiration of
Thomas Sturridge.
She gets to work with them.
Hang out with them.
Laugh with them.
Love them.

Oh Kristen.
You truly do have it all.
Looks. Talent. Fame.
Robert's heart.
Thomas's devotion.

Oh to wear your chucks for just ONE day...

So here we are.
No Rob.
No Kristen.

OK... we did get pictures of Tom today...
walking with Sienna.
Of course.
They do that pretty well...
The walking thing.
And the hand holding thing...
and the kissing thing.

But what can you do?
You happily accept their choices in life.
You are happy they are happy.

Just one more thought...

I know Tom isn't in the same stratosphere as Rob right now.
He's considered an 'up and comer'
But Tom is more than just
"Rob Pattinson's best friend"
"Sienna Miller's boyfriend"

He deserves more than being somebody's something.
You know?
Have you watched some of his movies?
He's very good.
There are even some similarities in his acting
style that he shares with Rob.
He's also been honored for his work in plays.
And his accent?
Fucking to DIE for.

It's funny...
The more I got to 'know' Robert...
the more I came to adore him.
Same for Tom.
I barely knew who he was before Rob came into my life...
And with each page I turn
The more I discover about him
that I admire and adore.

I can see why Rob and Tom became friends...
and why that friendship not only remains important to the other
but why it has stood the test of time.

 And so I leave this post
with this wonderful picture
of Rob and Tom (and Bear, oh my)

Will we see this repeated in London anytime soon?
We can only hope.

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

F for friends.
Rob and Tom and Kristen.
3 Musketeers!

F for Fuckery.
This whole 'where is Robert' thing
should be fun speculating
But alas...
The fucking 
have to ruin it... as usual.
You don't know where he is any more
than anyone else.
Admit it.
He could be in London.
He could be fucking anywhere.
Believe what you want
But get off your fucking soapbox.
Doesn't make you 'right'.

I imagine we will see soon enough
exactly where Robert is.

Good times ahead.

Bye for now

''But Tom is more than just Rob Pattinson's best friend or Sienna Miller's boyfriend.''

Truer words have never been spoken Rose.

Sydney said...

Rob looks so effing hot in a baseball hat.

I have the same fantasy Rose, hanging in a bar having drinks with all three. Maybe watching them do karaoke. How fun would that be? Just witnessing the dynamic.

I think that's where the line gets blurred from normal to psycho. I don't have fantasies about Rob choosing me out of a crowd of thousands. I don't have fantasies that Rob would appreciate my fantatical cyber-bullying of those closest to him because only I know what's best for him. I don't fantasize that Rob is nothing but a shallow fame whore who would sell his soul (and 5 years) to a studio for a couple big movies. I would just like to hang with them. Call me crazy.

Honestly, I've only ever seen Tom act in Pirate Radio. But even just that was plenty to realize what a talent he is.

Birdie said...

I love the picture of Rob, Tom and Kristen. Is it just me or does Kristen look incredibly content. I sure would be! I also love that no matter how crazy this "fame" thing has gotten, their friendships remain true,real.
You're right Rose, Tom is more than somebody's something. It's just a matter of time!
Good morning Claire and Sydney!

Awhile! said...

Loved your post today!

Sydney said...


Hi Birdie!

Maria95 said...

Goodday Roselanders!

Tom's a classy guy. Still can't make up my mind if I like the beard or not. Rob's very lucky to have a devoted friend like Tom.

I'm still in stunned about the earthquake that we had here yesterday. I live about an hour and 15 minutes north of Boston. We didn't feel anything, but my brother who lives and works in Boston, definitely did! Scary ... I first heard about it on the radio, and thought that it was a joke! I hope that everyone is safe and sound.

We have definitely got some crazies in this fandom! Whatever happened to just admiring the work of an actor/actress? Where did all these psychos pop up from? And as Rose has said before, they're definitely on both sides of the spectrum.

Alas, got to get on with my day. Football practice this afternoon, first game this Sunday ... woohoo!
School starts next week for my kids, and then it's back to our routine.

Everyone, have a good day.

Groovie said...

Hello everyone!

Cute post!
Its speaks volumes of Rob's character that he hangs with the same circle of friends now as he did back in the day before he was rich & famous.

Hope u are all having a good hump day!

Kay said...

How lucky they are to have a friendship that withstands the crazy out there....there isn't much better than having people in your life that truly know you and just let you be who you are.

Have a happy hump day, Roseland! :)

dottie said...

Hey Roseland and Rose!

Such a nice post today. Groovie is right, it says alot about these guys that they have maintained their friendship over the yrs. I'm glad that Rob and Kristen have a circle of people around them whom they can trust.

Of all the movies that are coming out in the next yr or so, I think I'm most excited about seeing Tom and Kristen in "On the Road." It's going to be so great, I just know it!

Have a great humpity hump day!

Hope said...

Sweet post! I love that Rob and Tom have remained best friends especially throughout the Twilight madness!
The photos of them are so cute...anyone can see they have loads of fun together. I also admire Tom's devotion to Kristen.

Looking forward to seeing Tom in OTR!

Super RN Gas Passer said...

You know ROSE..I think your Tom intoxication barometer has surpassed Rob Intoxication! The more I see Tom and read some of his interviews, the more impressed I am with this young man. He appears to be evrything you said and then I would add...and you might laugh but...humility...He has said that he learns and looks up to the other actors he works with...he seems very grounded and doesn't walk around on a high horse thinking he is better than everybody else...he is not impressed with some of the things you think...I.e. He kinda "snubbed" Sir Paul...or so I read in favor of speaking with some other well known person...a soccer player????...not sure...anyway, I'm just trying to convey that he seems pretty straightforward and real...you don't have to worry what he might say behind your back...I admire that! Have a great day everybody!

Kenzz said...

Happy Wednesday, Rose... A sweet post today championing the beauty of friendship and all of its definitions: brotherly love, devotion, deep connection friendship, comrade-in-arms (especially when dealing with all the fan craziness!)...

It's a pleasure to witness the closeness that these three appear to have...

On a last note, I'd simply like to mention how the "friendships" cultivated within this community of Roseland feel real & meaningful, regardless of the "virtuality" of a blog! So a toast to my friends here!

(hugs) and *waves* to Smitty, Syd, and Gruff

katy said...

Hi Rose,

Lovely post !!

I hope everyone is having a great day.

Take care

Freddie said...

Hi all,

Really nice post Rose. Thanks as always. I’m glad they have each other. I’m sure it makes their trials and travels much easier.

Kenzz – I couldn’t have said it better myself. You summed up the friendship of our favourite three so well, as well as the value of the friendships cultivated here in Roseland. I’ll toast with you…. when I get home later.

Hi to everyone out there. Have a good day all. Stay safe and well.

diade said...

It'impossible........are you really serious in your thought? U know why? Because I found extremely extraordinary their relationship but when you say that you found them sexy........boh! There's some sounds strange to every normal women in the world!!!

A part all the story of music,soul,drinking and so on(very very pure things as you specify) you don't even guess more than that? That's wAy I guess you are out of any human logical thoutgh!!!
Come'on Rose be serious and honest with yourself once in your live.......be human woman!!!!!

You should probably live in a romance maybe better, in a

fantaromance only............

Come'on Rose be serious and human woman......are you really sure???

diade said...

Do you wanna really know why I come once in a while to see your blog? (maybe not but I tell you anyway)

Because I hope that finally you come out like mostly of all the women in the world :

WE would love to have a sexy and emotional story with ROB (you with tom too)

You apprecate K story but in your deep soul you know the truth!!!

I do know & you?

But anytime I find the same honey and seetey thougth!!!

Doesn't matter but with very close friend of mine I use to be honest in terms of my feeling,my though,my deep and black soul that sometimes comes out!!!,

PL said...


I have to agree with you. I'm a little old to be considering myself as Rob's soulmate but I think watching one, or two or all three do karaoke would be fantastic. And can you imagine the silliness?

Keep safe all you Roselanders who are now facing a possible hurricane. Check in here so we know our community is safe.

dd said...

Hi everybody :)

Rose, great post <3
I've only seen Tom in Pirate Radio so far, but I was really impressed by him.
I can't wait to see him and Kristen in OTR, I think I've never been so excited for a movie before, I love the book. It will be great to see them promoting the movie together.
His friendship with both Rob and Kristen is really sweet.
The whole "where is Robert" thing is annoying as hell, and the worst part is that there're people who actually believe in all these "know-it-alls"... The rumours are out of control, again... -___-

Kenzz said...

diade: I'd love to respond to your comment, but I'm pretty sure I haven't the foggiest as to what you're trying to say, and I wouldn't want to assume an attitude that you weren't attempting to convey... I understand that English is not your first language, but it appears a whole lot has gotten lost in translation???


PL said...

I really hope those comments of diade were lost in translation because WTF???

angelica1 said...

Kenzz - I assume we're interpreting Diade's comment the same way? I don't think anyone would deny that Rob and Tom are extremely good looking however, I highly doubt that most of us fantasise about having some sort of sexual relationship with them, given that most of us are attached and/or old enough to be their mothers, I certainly hope not!!
With the greatest respect to both, as adorable as they both are, I'm more than happy with what I have at home :)

Annie said...

Oh my! Where to start?

Diade.....Whomever you are....I was lost at "It'impossible."

Claire said...


I must have read both of your comment's about ten times each, and I still haven't got a fucking clue what you're talking about.

angelica1 said...

Claire - I think we both know what she needs :)

dottie said...

Hi PL, Kenzz, Annie, Claire, and Angelica. I'm scratching my head, too.

Why is it so hard to believe that some of us admire Rob's work and the way he chooses to conduct himself w/o there being a sexual component involved? I feel the same about Kristen as well. (Does that make me a Krisbian? LOL) It's not just that I have my own man, but it also feels disrespectful to Kristen because that's HER man.

I don't look down on anyone for how they feel, but I personally just can't go there.

Claire said...

@angelica and dottie

I honestly can't grasp what she's implying.

Groovie said...

Claire, Dottie, Angelica-
I *think* she is trying to say that Rose (and all of us) should be "normal" and ogle Rob like the piece of man meat he is (in her mind of course).

Now, I am no way near being old enough to be his mom, I'm pretty close in age to Rob. And yea, I think the dude is cute/sexy, none of us are blind, so I think its safe to say he is easy on the eyes & we can appreciate that.
But that's where it stops for normal people.

Having fantasies & lusting after a guy that you don't know, will never know, and that is not yours, will never be yours and belongs to someone else is disrespectful as Dots said, not to mention crazy.
Its tacky, classless..and disrespectful to Rob & to Kristen cuz that is her man.

Sooooo...I think even if we could fully understand what her point is, we would totally disagree with it! Lol! :)

DreamerKind said...

@Kenzz & Groovie!
So far, my favorite comments of the day, you have made. Kudos!

Good day Everyone!

Claire said...


I'm only one year younger than Rob, and I'll admit, I like looking at the pretty, who doesn't? But I don't fantasise about him, I've got my own man.

I seriously cringe at the way some women talk about him, like you said, it's disrespectful to both he and his lovely lady.

These women need to get out and find themselves a man, an attainable one. If that fails there's always a vibrator I suppose.

Rose said...

Oh good grief.
Must people analyze my every word?

Sorry diade-- that I didn't go into intimate details for you.
Maybe you can admire and love someone from afar...
And still respect their relationships?
While it is sometimes nice to dream...
I live in reality.
(Most of the time... heh)

Kenzz said...

Hi DK!!!! :) big hugs sent your way...too bad I can't help you get out from under all of your moving boxes!

Hi Freddie, Claire, dottie, Sydney, Groovie, Super, Birdie, angelica, Annie, PL, and I'm sure a few other regs I missed...

Hope you're all having a non-ground-shaking day; and for those of us in Irene's path, stock up on batteries, water, and a few decent bottles of wine!!

Sydney said...

Well isn't that just the crux of it...do we fantasize about "being" with Rob? Personally, no. Do I recognize the deliciousness of him? Yes. Do I think he's attainable? NO. And not only because he's famous and I'll never meet him. But because he is very, very taken. And SO AM I!!! I have a real life fantasy whom I'm happy with. So...there's not much room for anything else. That's what I think it comes down to...happiness and contentment in ones' one life. Or a lack thereof.

Besides...all these women who lust after Rob and secretly think he will literally pick them out of a crowd, DON'T KNOW HIM. They project their ideal man onto his likeness. Not to say he's not wonderful in real life...but none of us really KNOW Rob. To pretend otherwise is NUTTY.

Kenzz said...

Ewww, my reference to batteries sounds so dirty now that I read Claire's ending comment! lol

Rose, don't you dare apologize for what you write ON YOUR OWN BLOG!! Honest to God, I just will never comprehend why people come to a blog to argue with its author...Why bother? If you don't agree, don't come here. Surely there are plenty of websites & blogs to follow where you can get your jollies on?

DreamerKind said...

Exactly! Love and admire, from afar and respecting other relationships they have. Like we do for real people in our lives. Sanity, most of the time, oh, yeah, most.


Do you really think we'd get anything done, with our fine wine drinking and non-stop laughing. Your kind offer is noted, and perhaps we will meet at the NE Chapter event or others. (Hugs)

Rose said...

I'm not apologizing, Kenzz-- lol
Just trying to make sense of it.
I also don't get why people get all lathered up with what I write about.

And here I thought people would just enjoy looking at the pretty that is Robert and Thomas!

Kenzz said...

Oh DK: We're Moms...what fabulous multitaskers we would be..the more we laughed, the more we'd unpack, and then must reward ourselves with appropriate imbibement!

Sydney said...

Well Kenzz, now I'm thinking of batteries, vibrators and getting my jollies on.

Kenzz said...

Rose, I don't know why I feel the need to stick up for you, I just can't help myself! haha I don't HOW you do WHAT you do, and do it SOOO well; I'm just happy you DO!

Big hugs, massive love, and all that sent to you every day from me... hope you feel it during the "down" times <3

angelica1 said...

Kenzz - I'm well stocked up on batteries, I think I need a few more bottles of wine. I'm feeling a little scared to leave the house in case I encounter some of these strange people with odd fantasies :)

dottie said...

Kennz, I'm sitting here nodding my head and giving you cyber high fives, sister!

Rose, today's post was great. You're right, sometimes it's nice to just relax and look at pretty pictures. Ditto to what Kenzz said. Thanks for all that you do. You've given us lots of smiles, laughs, and squees with your posts over the last few years. :)

Claire said...


I've got a 'Rampant Rabbit' under my bed, no regrets. Luckily the boy hasn't found it yet. ;D LOL

Rhonda said...

Hi Rose,

Awww, sweet post. I very much enjoyed looking at the pretty. I'm just sorry for all the crazy that comes your way <3

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

Rhonda said...

Angelica & Sydney- I agree with your comments. While there's no question Rob and Tom, are both very handsome men, I don't have any crazy fantasies about them. I see them more as adorable younger brothers I'd just love to hang out with :)

Hello Roseland and Rose.
Sorry for the comment deleted. Connection here is always so bad and the blog doesn't always open that well..
anyway just wanted to say a quick hi to all of you.
I'll be back when i'm home again.. crazy here..
thinking of you.

qtxtn said...

"Oh to wear your chucks for just ONE
day. .." Cute and oh so true!ay. .." Cute and oh so true!

Super RN Gas Passer said...

ROSE...It sounds to me like diade wants you to write some kind of "fantasy" story...purely make believe of course...(eyeroll..major)..of you and Rob TOGETHER...maybe even a "threesome" with Tom...ugh...haha.... I dont know about you, but I certainly dont have the energy for that thought much less anything else!

All kidding aside, I think the other Roselanders summed it up well...we just enjoy the "pretty", the "nice", the "cute", and the "funny"...

Super RN Gas Passer said...

FIO...I miss you! Hurry back to us!

Claire said...


Nice avi

Freddie said...

Yeah Super - great avi.

Hi Claire.

Hi ladies - I hope everyone is well tonight.

Rhonda said...

Hi Freddie, Super & Claire :)

Claire said...

Hi Freddie and Rhonda

The 4 minute Rob spotlight from the WFE DVD has just been posted on youtube.

I can post the link if you want, Reese, Francis, and the screenwriter, plus one of the producers talk about Rob.

Or perhaps you actually want to wait for the DVD.

Shall I post the link, yay or nay??

Freddie said...

Claire, I think you could post the link. People can choose to go to it or not.

Hey Rhonda - hope you are well. Are you likely to get any of the bad weather from Irene or are you far enough inland?

gwen said...

Hi everyone!

Count me on that fantasy of yours Rose, not that its bad to dream right lol. Kristen is lucky indeed, a cute boy-next-door friend and a adorkable and lovely boyfriend, swoon! Lol.

DK- See ya later?

Clair- Do you know when would be the game of Manchester vs Arsenal? (sorry Rob, but I'm a ManU fan lol)

Have a great day! s bad to dream right lol. Kristen is lucky indeed, a cute boy-next-door friend and a adorkable and lovely boyfriend, swoon! Lol.

DK- See ya later?

Clair- Do you know when would be the game of Manchester vs Arsenal? (sorry Rob, but I'm a ManU fan lol)

Have a great day!

Claire said...


The game is this Sunday, it kicks off at 4pm UK time. :)



There you go ladies, 4 mins of Robowski in all his glory. Everyone has great things to say about him :'')

Knock yourselves out :D

Freddie said...

Claire - I'm not sure it's the video you were referencing, but I just saw one that I think is from the DVD. It is a spotlight on Rob and it's wonderful. Aside from showing us the beauty that is WFE Rob, it brought back that wonderful feeling of the movie. It was very nice. I can't wait for the DVD to come out so I can see the movie again.

Hi Gwen - hope you are well.

Claire said...


Yep it is. I'm not ashamed to admit that I saw it everyday for a full week when it first came out.

You can tell that the compliments aren't just for the sake of it.

I'm so proud of Rob for his work in WFE.

Can't wait for the Blu-ray :D

Barbara Fenwick said...

Love your post today Rose, as usual. Like you, I have grown very fond of Tom. I have seen him in 2 movies and enjoyed both, even though in one he was a killer.

I miss Rob and Kris, but I hope they are happy. I know they will be together very soon, if they aren't together now.

Have a wonderful day everyone. I know our time is coming.

Rhonda said...

Claire- Thanks for the link. It makes me want to watch the movie again :)

Freddie- No, Irene shouldn't cause any problems for us, maybe some rain. Are you still really busy with work?

Freddie said...

Rhonda - glad to hear you will be safe/fine. In terms of work, yes, the days are very full. But I'm enjoying the people I'm working with. So it's good (so far). Has work been busy for you since being back from vacation?

Claire - you're right. I'm really proud of Rob's work in WFE, as well.

gwen said...

Claire- thanks that would be about late night here :)

Hi Freddie! Im good.

Take care everyone, of those who are affected by the typhoon and those of the earthquake. Mother nature is not happy these days. I know it would be bad if she's totally pissed off :)

olivia said...

Thank you dear Rose for the post today.

Rob, Kristen, and Tom are blessed with their sincere and strong friendships and loving families. It is wonderful to see that they have received such a strong foundation in life and have so much caring support from those who mean the most to them as they travel through this crazy world of public scrutiny. They are truly fortunate to have found sanctuary and sanity within the security of these treasured relationships.

Thanks Claire. The WFE Rob spotlight is wonderful. Especially liked the comments about how Rob's own personality shines through the character of Jacob.

Hope everyone is having a lovely evening.
Dear East Coast Roselanders, please get ready and stay safe during the next few days.

Just had a bowl of fresh blueberries, greek yogurt and some granola sprinkled over the top. Yum!
Off to read for a while. Take care.

Hugs for y'all.
Hugs for Smitty, Gruff and Syd.
Life is good.

DreamerKind said...

Maybe see you later..tweeted to you.

Lovely thoughts to share with us.

DreamerKind said...

Watched the WFE link and was astounded at the excellent quality of it, and of course, hearing those kind words of earned praise for Rob, iced the cake for me. Nom, nom.

Looking forward to the DVD, to add to my classics batch of movies.

A-M said...

I just miss them all! Sweet post Rose! Thanks!

Super RN Gas Passer said...

Hi GUYS..I got sidetracked...didnt mean to jump ship! Ooooohhh...I want to see the WFE thingy! and I will accept thankyou's and kind words for the new avi...how I love WFE Rob plastered against that wall with that shirt and tie...OMG...I am ready to see that movie again...so much good coming down the pipe!

Maria95 said...

Oh boy! I'm flummoxed. What in the world is diade insinuating? At first, I thought she was hinting around to something that is a bit more than a close friendship. But after the second time, she comes across more cynical and condecending (I know I just misspelled that).

Why is it so hard for some people to believe that our admiration for Rob, Tom and Kristen is simply that, an admiration for their talent and personality. Their so genuine when sharing their thoughts in interviews. How can you not be drawn in to admire these three young adults.

I've been with my husband for over twenty yrs. I'm old enough to be the mother of all three actors. I don't fantasize about having any type of sexual intimacy with them. Ew, that would be just so wrong. Its disturbing to realize that we live in such a jaded world that a simple admiration ends up being warped.

Okay...getting off my soapbox now. Have a good night everyone!

Rhonda said...

Freddie- That's great, I hope things continue to go well :)

I don't remember if I mentioned this or not, but I started a new job last month. It's totally different from what I did before, and so far, I love it!

Super RN Gas Passer said...

OK..I watched it...What a wonderful tribute to you ROB...wherever in the world you are...I believe every word that was said..job well done!

Super RN Gas Passer said...

Hi RHONDA...Hope you are doing good this evening:)

Rhonda said...

Hi Super- I'm good, thanks. Are you getting ready for the hurricane?

Hi DK, Barbara, Maria95, Olivia, gwen, A-M, and anyone else I missed :)

Kenzz said...

Hi Rhonda & Super: getting ready for Hurricane Irene as well, thought it was nothing, but now seems to be a bit bigger deal than I 1st believed! :) I've got relatives in Baltimore and Nashville, so hope everyone stays safe these next few days...

Syd, Smitty & Gruff...safe travels to you all!

Kenzz said...

Maria95: I'm with you in all your points!

Kenzz said...

Alright, at this point, every single weather model says we're going to get f***ing hit this weekend in New England...not good :( Thanks for all of Roseland's good wishes...

Freddie said...

Hi ladies - how is everyone? I had to step off for a bit as we were having bad weather (severe thunderstorms and a tornado warning), so I thought it best to shut down my PC.

Rhonda - I'm so glad you are enjoying your new job. Congratulations on this new opportunity. Are you still pursuing the same profession or did you make a total change?

Kenzz - I'll cross my fingers and hope that Irene takes a turn and heads out to sea for you.

DK - I meant to thank you for posting Smoke on the Water. I smiled when I saw it. Boy does it bring back memories. Good ones.

Fanfic said...

I just want to reiterate...I love your blog.

It's not all fangirling and squee-ing...it's well thought out and fierce and speculative, but not in a bad way...in a fun and thought provoking way.

So glad I found it

DreamerKind said...

Rose has got IT going and we do most times, too, thanks. Welcome.

I don't know what prompted me to post the Smoke song, but now I see it was to make you smile. Thanks.

This has been a great few days of our having true communications between us all. How lucky can we get?

DreamerKind said...

A Double-Edged Sword But Still

How Lucky Can You Get?

Barbra Streisand-Live 1975:

Satin on my shoulder and a smile on my lips,
How lucky can you get?

Money in my pocket right at my fingertips,
How lucky can you get?

Every night's a party where the fun never ends
You can circle the globe with my circle of friends

Someone I am crazy for is crazy for me-
I'm his personal pet!
Gee how lucky can you get?

Wrap it up and charge it that’s my favorite phrase,
How lucky can you get?

When I see the chauffer think I'll give him a raise
How lucky can you get?

Weekends in the country -with a Baron, of course
With a wardrobe to boast Mrs Astor’s pet horse!

Making merry music with the one that I love-
We’re a perfect duet!
Gee how lucky can you get?

Hey there gorgeous!
Big success!
What's your secret gorgeous?
Just lucky I guess!

Life's a bed of roses squirting perfume on me
You can spare me the blues- I don't sing in that key!

And if there's a man who'd leave me, I am happy to say
I haven't run into him yet!

Gee! Whee! Wow! How!
Lucky, how lucky- can you get!

Thank you/Querelle83

Truer Words Were Never Spoken

Chris Bartley:

When I tell you
You're an angel, baby
I may be stretching
My imagination

And then I say that life
With you is Heaven
I may be quilty
Of exaggeration

But Sugar, don't you be deceived
When I say I love you
You must believe
Truer words were never spoken

When I say your kiss
Is sweet as honey
It may be a statement for debating

And when I say your love's
A rich as money
It may be a deal
I'm overrating

But Sugar, don't you be deceived
When I say I love you
You must believe
Truer words were never spoken

Oh,, just as sure as .......
I love you so
Just as sure as one and one is two
I swear it's true

When I say your smile as bright a sunshine
And I say you make each day seem springtime

You'll laugh at me
And say I'm playing

But Sugar, don't you be deceived
When I say I love you
You must believe
Truer words were never spoken

Thank you/TheSoulhawk

DreamerKind said...

So enthused, so funny, for you to yell and get on a horse, on foot, to meet the Trio, Rose and me. You are such a delight!

Por su puesto, que no?

DreamerKind said...

For Wania:

It Be's That Way Sometime

Nina Simone:

When your guy has got his hat
And made himself hard to find
It doesn't mean you should go crazy
It be's that way sometime

Find yourself another love
Who will treat you good and kind
Return that love he gives to you
Also be's that way sometime

Baby, yes it does
Baby, yes it does
Baby, yes it does
Baby, yes it does

When you think you've found a love And you have peace of mind Somebody else
Steals his heart
Yes it also be's that way sometime

Baby, yes it does
Baby, yes it does
Baby, yes it does
Baby, yes it does

Don't let the problems of this world
Drive you slowly out of your mind
Just smile look at the problem
And say it be's that way sometime

Baby, yes it does
Baby, yes it does
Baby, yes it does
Baby, yes it does

Thank you/Jazzadelia69

Thulasizwe/I Shall Be Released

Miriam Makeba/Nina Simone:



They say everything can be replaced
Yet every distance is not near
So I remember every face
Of every man who put me here

I see the light come shining
From the west unto the east
Any day now any day now
I shall be released

They say every man needs protection
They say every man must fall
Yet I swear I see my reflection
Some place too high above this wall

Now yonder standing me in this lonely crowd
A man who swears he's not to blame
ALl day long I hear his voice shouting so loud
Crying out that he was framed

I see the light come shining
From the west unto the east
Any day now any day now
I shall be released

Thank you/SuperXavier30

Hey ya DK!

DreamerKind said...

Hi, ya! I'm back late. So the cat's away? Good. What have you been doing to have fun?

DreamerKind said...

It's been a crazy, busy day, and lots of different things to do.

Pretty soon I'll have to get some sleep, since the cable guy is coming between 9 and 12. Not my usual hours of functioning. Should be interesting.

gwen said...


yep she's away for 2 days and im happy so that i can work in peace, lol. I'm excited for a long weekend, its a holiday for us on Monday to Tuesday (Heroes Day and End of Ramaddan for Muslim citizen). But I'll just stay at home relaxing maybe hanging out here more often.

Where's Bren? Is she busy? I'm excited, its only a month for her bday lol. Yeah I'm excited for her.n peace, lol.

gwen said...


Are you still unpacking? Maybe I should ship my ass there to help you out, lol.

I'm on twitter if I want to vent my frustration though some of it I know you dont understand (lol) or if friends are online :)re to help you out, lol.

DreamerKind said...

You are really excited and that's pretty exciting.

Bren is always busy. Don't know where she is tonight though.

Sounds like a great holiday weekend for you and those of your country.

I noticed that you are repeating phrases on here and Twitter, is that some kind of program problem?

I repeat myself, cause I forget that I already said or did something, but you are a young one, sweets.

You will hang out this weekend. Will there be dancing? Twirling?

gwen said...

ignore the repeated sentences. D@mn phone I'm having trouble posting comments. As usual no internet/surfing allowed office hours but hey they didnt know I'm on mobile :pting comments. As usual no internet/surfing allowed office hours but hey they didnt know I'm on mobile :p

DreamerKind said...

Why then ship that ass right over here to help me. I am going to be unpacking for quite a while, especially since I need to make the most out of every day, and do fun things.

Unpacking isn't fun but it is filled with Christmas-like delight-opening long forgotten boxes of lovely things, forgotten so long, too. It's all new again to me.

What makes you think that I can't rad Tagalong? There's Google translator, sillybilly.

DreamerKind said...

OK, I'll ignore the repeats, but there is a kind of cadence to them, that appeals somehow, and I am getting to enjoy them, getting to enjoy them, getting to enjoy them.

DreamerKind said...

"read", la, la, la.

DreamerKind said...

Any further progress on the cake making, pastry career?

DreamerKind said...

Say, gwen, isn't your birthday in September, too?

gwen said...

DK- I change my mind I'll just stay here but I'll be with you in spirit while unpacking. If I haul myself up there I'll be broke for the next two year, lol.

So have you try translating one of tweets coz that would be funny and embarrassing.

DreamerKind said...

I am that silly and it would be that funny-but no reason to be embarrassed, for I haven't done it yet, and might not, if you don't like it.

Just reminding you that the whole world is watching, and if they can translate stuff, they are participating in your convos, too.

gwen said...

DK- I think baking/cooking will be a past time. I still love my work albeit there's a lot of it.

Yeah my bday is in September too. Another addition to my age lol. rk albeit there's a lot of it.

DreamerKind said...

Bren and I think you have a boyfriend. Yes?

DreamerKind said...

Didn't you say you are in the fashion industry? That would be fun.

OK, don't come, I'll take the spirit sense of you, and it will work as well to motivate me, as long as I am in touch with you.

After all, I have the same 24 hours a day as you or anyone, so what advantage don't I have already? Time waits for no one, and so I go on, on my time.

DreamerKind said...

Too bad with me asking all of these questions, that will probs not be answered, since I need to go to bed. (Can you believe that?)

Usually I lie to myself and don't do it, but I must now, since you are slow in answering, I'm falling asleep, and the alarm is set for 830am. Yikes!

Tomorrow I'll be out later in the evening, but if you are game, be here around the same time as tonight!

(Hugs) for you and you alone.


gwen said...


Now why would you think I have a bf. I have in my dreams though lol. Haven't found one yet.

Don't worry I'm a pretty harmless spirit, nothing spooky.

I had peek here last week but you and Bren had already passed out lol.

gwen said...


Yep our company's unto clothes.

Guess any moment now you're outta here.

Sorry cant answer some of your questions, I'll just email to you some of it lol

gwen said...

Night DK! See ya when I can tomorrow.

Super RN Gas Passer said...

Good Morning Everybody!

RHONDA...I fell asleep before I saw your response...lol..I think the hurricane is going to bypass us. Have a good day.

KENZZ..I will be keeping an eye on you. Hope the hurricane doesnt disturb your area. Keep us posted.

FREDDIE..Hello...I keep missing you.

DK...I will be catching up with you very soon. I have to have our weekly girl time convos on life, vitamins and family/friends!

Happy Thursday!!!

kstewrocks said...

You can tell you've fallen for Rob AND Tom Rose. Well you find them both handsome.

It was so sweet to hear that he's not just somebody's something. He's an actor. He's not just known because he's Rob and Kristen's friend, he's an actor himself. And he deserves credit. I can't wait to see his role in "On The Road".

I loved him in "The Boat That Rocked". He's got talent, and one day he'll probably become more well known for his acting. I'm hoping so anyway.

It's nice to see a post about the friendships Rob still keeps. I want to go back and look at those Rob/Tom piggyback picture/gif and the pictures of them in that car Rob had last summer.

It makes me want to see Kristen with her old/current best friend too, Britney or Britni is it. I want to look up the pictures of them. Isn't she the Godmother of her child? I love how Rob and Kristen's friends as well accept each other. The Brit Pack accept Kristen. And Kristen's friends, accept Rob. I don't know if you remember that pappz video of Rob and Kristen walking with a couple who Kristen knows, and has probably introduced Rob to, so much that they went for some place to eat before the Eclipse premiere.
I think Rob and Kristen appreciate and hold onto their previous friendships.

This post also brings up that pleasant thought that their families accept one another. The Stewarts have had Rob round theirs no doubt loads of times. He's heard Jules talk about Australia, he's had the wolves sniff him when he went back from WFE filming with the smell of an elephant, he even got a hug from Jules. And wasn't it nice to see Taystew with them early 2009, Japan, and that Sam Bradley concert which I think sealed the deal that R/K were a couple right at that moment. I love how they gave him a car too! Well that's just a guess, because it was in their garage right?

Rhonda said...

Good morning all,

Super- I'm glad to hear the storm will miss your area :)

Freddie- No, I'm still in the same field, just a little different. I will send you a message about it sometime.

Kenzz- Stay safe, take care.

Have a great day everyone. Lots of love :)

Claire said...



He's going to ruin us LOL


Claire said...

Seriously, this is like foreplay. They're just building us up until the big explosion. PMSL

Claire said...

And I'm all for foreplay, but enough already, I want the main course!!!

Berry said...

Just saw this...love it Rose! Right on as always! I am so consumed with this fucking hurricane that is headed directly at us. Gonna leave my hubby to fend for himself (as he will not go) and head to my daughter's apt in Raleigh. Everyone be safe!

PL said...

OT here but since a lot of us are dog lovers I thought you'd all appreciate this as it shows the depths of a dog's devotion.



Stay safe and take that stubborn man with you.

katy said...

Hello Roseland,

Thanks for the link, Claire :)

RobDuroy, may be the death of us all...!

Happy Thursday

Take care everyone

Claire said...




I think so too LOL

angelica1 said...

PL - I saw that, it's heartbreaking

*I*Believe* said...

Hi Everyone!

Just checking in! No, I didn't feel the earthquake but everyone in the area around us did. So, I feel jipped!

As far as Irene goes, they are now saying she will take a more westernly route which means she may be heading our way....we will have to see which way she goes.

Wishing anyone in Irene's path safety!

katy said...


Aww, That brought tears to my eyes...Sad.

Believe, be safe.

Annie said...

Good afternoon all.

It's looking like Hurricane Irene is packing a serious punch...........be very careful if it's coming anywhere near to where you are.

@30: I see the NJ Governor has called a state of emergency and ask for voluntary evacuation, especially for those at the Jersey Shore. Be safe.
Claire and PL: Thanks for the links.

*IB*: We always seem to miss each other. Earthquakes and hurricaines in NY/ NYC........Unbelievable!
It's raining heavily here now.
I wonder if the release of Bel Ami is being held back until the release of BD2............There doesn't seem to be a reliable release date.

Super RN Gas Passer said...

CLAIRE and ANNIE...Surely they wouldnt release all this "foreplay" at this time if they werent going to be releasing the movie soon...surely...right????...How loooonnnngggg do they think they can deprive us without releasing it? Enough is enough!

Claire said...


If it's males behind it then don't expect the 'foreplay' to last very long, it's standard with them. ;) LOL

Annie said...

Hi Super and Claire :) :0

It really wouldn't surprise me if they postpone the release date until after BD 2........If the movie stays with the character as written in the book, he is quite despicable.

Claire said...


This is probably going to be the one character that Rob has played that I won't have any empathy or sympathy for, and rightly so, he's a dick.

Ah man I can't wait!!!

Annie said...

@Claire: I can't wait either! :)

Also, Daniel Radcliffe has a period movie being released in 2012 as well (The Woman In Black)....A dark horror and very different to Bel Ami but I doubt they'll release them head to head.

WIB will be released in February, so I think BAM will be released later in the year. (I could be wrong)

Claire said...


I saw the trailer and it freaked me the fuck out.

I hope it's successful for Dan as he seems like a really nice guy.

He has the same sort of problem that Rob has, in that some people will always see Rob as Edward, and some people will always see Dan as Harry.

They're both young and talented enough to break away from it though, and they will.

Annie said...

@Claire: Agreed. :)

Daniel is on Broadway here in... How To Succeed In Business and I promised someone I would go with them so she could get his autograph (She's a huge Harry Potter fan) :)

Daniel is a lovely, very sweet young man. He didn't just sign autographs but took time to chat....He was great and I wish him every success.

Annie said...

Oh wow...... New York's Governor has now issued a state of emergency because of Hurricane Irene.

Annie said...

Be back in later. Bye!

Claire said...


Stay safe!!!

And the same to anybody else in that area.

30 said...

Hi Annie!

Yes, he has. And I am not leaving. lol

Usually NJ gets all worked up about these things then the hurricane will fizzle out. Stay safe also. OH and WTF is up mother natures ass as of late? earthquake..hurricanes.. all that snow. Kind of scary IMO.

Melinda said...

Hi everyone. My internet was on the fritz for the past few days. They think it's been fixed but I'm not inclined to believe them. We'll see.

Missed everyone and catching up.

Great thoughts Rose on Rob and Tom. I find them attractive (who doesn't really). You can find someone attractive but not be attracted to them. Therein lies why I like this little blog. Women content with their own lives that they don't obsess about having another life.

I'm glad to see that all those in the recent earthquake zone are safe. Now to deal with Irene. Crazy weather going on!

Angelica- Glad you had a great vacation. Did you go anywhere other than Brussels?

Groovie- How is the new position at work going?

Olivia- Read your comment about the first day of school. I wished when I was back in school I had a teacher like you. As kids get older they need teachers who encourage/motivate their learning. Sadly it's lacking in schools especially when teachers have been teaching for a long period. Have a great school year!

Rhonda- So the new job is going well. Yea for that! How is the family situation going? Any better?

I hope everyone else is having a great week despite all the crazy weather. To those who are going to be dealing with Irene, please be safe!

angelica1 said...

Hi Melinda - Thank you. We also went to Bruges,Ghent and Reims with a quick stop in London on the way home :) Fingers crossed your connection lasts!!

Rhonda said...

Hi Melinda- No resolution for my family yet, but we're hanging in there. Thanks so much for asking, I appreciate it. I hope all is well with you, and good luck with the internet :)

30, Annie, Kenzz, and anyone else in the path of this hurricane, stay safe!

Kay said...

Please take care and stay safe Roselanders and lurkers that are in the path of hurricane Irene...thinking of all of you out there on the east coast.

Happy almost Friday everyone!

Rhonda said...

PL- Awwww, I just saw the link you posted. That breaks my heart, but it's also one of the sweetest things ever :)

Freddie said...

Hi everyone,

I hope you have all had a good day. 4 down, 1 to go….

Rhonda – glad to hear that you are excited about your new job. I hope your other family challenges resolve themselves quickly.

Claire – the new BA stills are nice. What I’ve seen so far (i.e. the movie trailer and stills), I like.

PL – thanks for posting that link. The bond between humans and animals is very special.

Berry, Kenzz, 30, Annie, IB, Super, Melinda and everyone else in Irene’s path, I hope you stay safe. Keep us posted on how you are doing.

Have a good day all. Talk to you soon.

Super RN Gas Passer said...

Hi EVERYONE....Ugh..I have just gotten home from a dinner meeting on, of all things, IV Tylenol...very interesting... It was at our only 4 star restaurant and I am full of wine and had the most delish meal...beef tenderloin and devils food chocolate cake for dessert...I didnt eat all of the cake...I figure with 3 glasses of vino, I didnt need to eat ALL of the cake...but I wanted to!..lol...I think I will sleep good tonight:)

Watching the Weather Channel and checking on the hurricane...looking like NJ/NY

Berry said...

Hello Everyone...we have been told to evacuate, mandatory, I have stored all the outdoor furniture and plants in my garage, I have packed my car with "important" stuff and will head out to my daughter's apt in Raleigh NC...Still can't talk my hubs into leaving. Just hoping it is far enough inland. And I damn sure hope I have a house to come back to. Everyone in Irene's path do the right thing and get out of her way. Stay Safe!

olivia said...

Take care Berry, Annie, 30, Kenzz, MSCL, SJJW, IB, Elaine, Super, Melinda and all the dear Roselanders that may be in the path of Irene. Be safe and very cautious. Will keep you in my thoughts and prayers.

Hugs for y'all.
Sleep tight.

DreamerKind said...

Best wishes everyone.

May all have safe harbor and protection, including those in the path of Irene.

wania said...

DK any insanity is acceptable and justifiable to meet with you, Rose and our beloved trio.

Last night you gave me a super present in the songs of Nina Simone ... she is the best! Lulled my dreams...Thanks!

Birdie said...

I read your note last night and am so sorry. I hope you come home to everything intact. I'll be saying a prayer for all of you on the East coast and hope you come through this safely!

I'm curious. What kind of job did you take,still nursing?

Roselanders,Rose,Smitty, Gruff and Syd,
You stay safe out there today!

Super RN Gas Passer said...

BERRY....I am thinking about you and hoping for the best outcome possible. Keep us posted.

30 said...

DK! Gwen! Did you see my "someone special" pic on facebook? He is actually very very special.:) Guess what I am NOT single anymore! ha ha! BUT he lives kind of far and going to school for RN nursing right now but if things go the way they have been, I can see a bright future. :) I just dont want nosy family members knowing yet so that's why I am telling you guys here. He is cute right? :) Looks like Toby McGuire. :)

dottie said...

Berry, I'm thinking of you & our other east coasters & hoping the storm damage is minimal.

30, Congrats on your new friend! ;)


katy said...

Hello Roseland,

Everyone in the path of Hurricane Irene, stay safe!

DreamerKind said...

Yes, I saw the pic and am so happy for you. He is much more handsome than Toby and hard working, with his choice of a career. Win-win.

Didn't the FGM say it would be so? I'll find a special song for you tonight!

Good day Rose & Roselanders.
