Kristen is the magnet, Rob is the steel...

Now I've told you so you ought to know... Takes some time for our feelings to grow
You're so close now I can't let you go... And I can't let go

Random Rose.

1. I had this discussion on Twitter yesterday...
About how Rob and Kristen are drawn to each other.
Magnetically pulled together.
Stephenie Meyer brought up 'magnets' a few times
in her books...

The way you move — you orient yourself around him
without even thinking about it.
When he moves, even a little bit,
you adjust your position at the same time.
Like magnets… or gravity. 
You’re like a… satellite, or something.

And if you watch Rob and Kristen interact in public...
They are always aware of where the other is at all times
They are always mirroring each others movements
without even realizing it.
They always seem to be in their own magnetic force field
Which is known as the "Robsten Bubble".

With you I'm not shy to show the way I feel
With you I might try my secrets to reveal
For you are a magnet and I am steel

If you have followed Rob and Kristen for the last 3 years...
(and I have)
It's undeniable.
It's been there since the beginning...
And it has been fascinating to watch it grow and blossom.

I think that has been part of the charm of seeing
Robert and Kristen fall in love...
Is watching it happen from the start.

At first they were all cute and flirty
on the set of "Twilight"

To the intense stares...
The shy smiles...
And the constant need to be around each other
Even when they weren't working.
Holding hands.
 It's been going on for 3 years...
And keeps going.
And going...

I can't hope that I'll hold you for long... You're a woman who's lost to your song
But the love that I feel is so strong... And it can't be wrong.

And please don't send me emails telling me
that steel isn't attracted to magnets
or some such shit... OK?
Lyrics to a song, people.
"Magnets and Steel"
I didn't write it.
I just like it.
And I feel it's appropriate for 
Rob and Kristen.

With you I'm not shy to show the way I feel
With you I might try my secrets to reveal
For you are a magnet and I am steel

2. Where is Robert Pattinson?
If you believe every lame tweet out there
Apparently he's everywhere!
But seriously?
When was the LAST reliable sighting of Rob?
And no...
I'm not predicting where he will turn up.
But a girl can hope... right?
And again...
I don't even want to see any Pap pics of them.
I really don't.
I've had enough of pissed off Rob
and frightened Kristen.
But say...
If a fan would happen to catch them 
out and about and got them to pose for a pic?
(again... wishful thinking)
That would be OK with me.

With you I'm not shy to show the way I feel
With you I might try my secrets to reveal
3. As always with a 'drought' of any kind...
(Sometimes a few days equals a drought)
People get desperate.
There is always a cloud of desperation hanging over this fandom.
But it gets increasingly thick and heavy
as time passes without seeing Rob or Kristen.
It's always the extremes who bring the most drama...

Fighting some invisible war...
Hoping to win.
Something. Anything.

I get a lot of emails and DMs
where people are whining and wailing over
details of a relationship
that don't include them.
'I'm really worried, Rose."
Because I'm pretty sure you don't have a say
in how Rob and Kristen conduct their lives.
You don't get to judge and criticize them
based on your interpretation of what you see.

For you are a magnet and I am steel
For you are a magnet and I am steel

We have no control over their relationship.
We can watch from afar...
and we can choose to be happy for them.
We can choose to enjoy the moments they share with us.
We can choose to smile and have fun speculating
on the sidelines...
But we aren't in the game.

So you can cheer for them...
Or you can be miserable and worry about things
that you don't know and can't control.

"For we all know in life, it's useless to obsess about things
over which we have no control."

I choose happy.
And I'm thinking when we see Rob and Kristen
together again?
We will see happy.
A lot of happy.

This post is brought to you by choices.

It's pretty obvious there is both a
side of this fandom...

Which side are you on?

And it's my choice to include
Tom Sturridge in every post.
I adore him.
Come on, people... it's obvious!

Green Sheep

Bye for now

Berry said...

Great analogy Rose! And we can believe that a magnet will stick to steel if we want to. Look at all the bad stuff other people believe! I love that song btw. Hope everyone is doing well today! I miss seeing kristen and rob!

Groovie said...

Very nice!
And very true!
I don't get the idiots that run around like fucking crazies freaking out over absolutely nothing.

Its obvious. They seem happy. I'm happy for them. That's all that matters!

And I totally see a select group of crazies analyzing and disputing the laws of physics regarding magnets & various types of metal...lol! Yaknow damn well it will happen.
All u can do is just laugh at all that nonsense.

Hope u all have a great day! One more day of work for me and then I'm off for a relaxing few days in California! That's the awesome thing about living where I do, short 5-6hr drive to Vegas & SoCal. Perfect!

Kay said...

I think it is incredibly adorable how they really are like magnets together...very sweet. The drought desperation and drama people really just need to chill...happy is seriously the best choice. :D

Have a great day Rose and Roseland! <3

bcaceres30 said...

i am on the good side of the fandom. The Twilight saga are my favorite books and movies. i love Kristen as Bella and think she is an amazing actress. Rob is my perfect Edward.

Freddie said...

Hi all,

I hope you are all having a great day.

“I choose happy.
And I'm thinking when we see Rob and Kristen
together again?
We will see happy.
A lot of happy.”

Really nice thought Rose.

Robert – thinking good thoughts for your surgery tomorrow.

Fio – I meant to tell you that I hope things are looking up now.

Groovie – safe drive.

DK – I’ll get on those songs tonight.

Hello to all the other Roselanders. Hope you are all well.

dottie said...

Just a quick drive-by. I hope everyone is enjoying the day. It's cold and drizzly here. A good day to get under the covers w/a good book and hot drink!

Thanks for the post, Rose. It's another good one!

Claire said...

''And please don't send me emails telling me that steel isn't attracted to magnets or some such shit...OK?''


They were probably going to do just that after reading the title.

They would argue that flies aren't attracted to shit just to fit their agenda.

Hello everyone

Sydney said...

If we win something for being right that they're together...we should split it with each other.

It is a contest, right?

bcaceres30 said...

@sydney have you ever seen NCIS? The actress who plays Abby would be a good choice to play Diana.

Leni said...

Great post as always!
I'm sure that a lot of people are working right now on finding all the hidden messages behind the words "magnet" and "steel".. LOL

I choose happy too :)

Leni said...

Ok Sydney, we will split it with each other ;)

Kenzz said...

It's soooo OB.VI.OUS that this is another perfect post, Rose. I, too, choose to be happy that they're out of the lens of the stalkerazzi... Honestly, I don't care to see them until BD promotion, if I believe that's the way they're happiest.

Robert: Good luck tomorrow...

Groovie: Hope you get some nice weather for your road trip...

dottie: Hope your weather improves! Although staying under a blanket (with your special someone) sounds like a pretty good plan , too!

Claire: Ewww, gross analogy, but oh so very fitting when trying to explain the crazies <3

Sydney: A contest?...oooh, I just love a contest! What shall be our prize? *rubbing hands together gleefully* LOL

Hi Berry, bcaceres, Kay, Freddie, Leni, and the regs who might pop in later ((hugs))

Hope said...

Rose...thanks for another great post today.

Love the black and white gif of Rob and Kristen....the 'Robsten Bubble' in full force.
So cute!!

PL said...

This is a quick drive-by but I didn't want to forget.


Good luck tomorrow. I hope you know you have become very special to everyone here. I don't know if we've ever "spoken" directly before, but I thoroughly enjoy reading your comments. Fingers crossed that all turns out as you hope.

OCD56 said...

God yes, I am also tired of seeing a pissed off Rob and a frightened Kristen. Please no pap pictures. I just want to see Rob and Kristen happy. Hope everyone is happy today!

Kenzz said...

PL: Love your avi... welcome to Autumn!

Anna said...

Hi Rose! Another awesome post! I'm so glad the previous one didn't remain as the latest for too long. I much rather Random Rose! The first thing I thought was Renee in Eclipse saying "He moves, you move, like magnets!" Also, that gif where Rob is biting his knuckles says it all. Anyway, I hope everyone is doing great. Not much longer til Breaking Dawn. With every post from Rose we get a little closer! I too believe next time we do get a pic of Rob & Kristen, there will definitely have a different glow around them! If you know what I mean!!!

Fiorels said...

Wo, i'm away for a day or so and have two posts to read! better for me!
thanks Rose for the common sense and always the good smile or laugh I have for they way you speak and insert those perfect cute emoticons here and there LOL

Freddie- thanks for concerning!

Robert- good luck on tomorrow!
praying everything will be just fine; let us know as soon as you can!

Claire said...

I see that both Rob and Kristen are going to attend the LA Convention. :D

I know Rob isn't working, but lets hope he has a late night the night before, sleepy Rob will give us some amazing soundbites. LOL

And I also forgot to say this in my earlier post, but that gif is so UNF!!!!!!!!!!!!

Claire said...

Also Metric are working with Howard Shore on the score for Cosmopolis!!!


Kenzz said...

Claire: That's great news X 2!

BTW, did the BF survive the reunion? Hope it was a fun time!!

Claire said...


He couldn't walk for days :X


Kenzz said...

Claire: You naughty, naughty girl (but impressive, nevertheless!!)

OWN it, don't run away, "you saucy minx"...can't remember the movie reference that's from :)

Hope your week's going well!

Barbara Fenwick said...

Rose, great post, as always. Like you, I chose happy. I feel when we see Rob and Kris again, we will see happy. I am looking for a pic, but not a pap picture, I too am tired of see Rob and Kris hounded by the paps.

Have a good week Roselanders.

Kenzz said...

Fio: Did I see that it's your birthday?

Smitty said...

Hi Fiorels-

A little bird told me it was your birthday today. I know you are very talented at making videos and I wish I had even a short one for you. You bring smiles to alot of people. Thanks for sharing your talents. I hope the year ahead is full of everything good thing for you.

Hope everyone else is well.

Kenzz said...

Smitty: So sweet of you to wish Fio all the best... she seems like she's had a bit of a hard time recently, and we know what a big Smitty fan she is... I'm sure your birthday wishes will brighten her day immeasurably!

Hope all is right in your world!

Super RN Gas Passer said...

ROSE...I dont want to see any pics either...I am happy to wait and see them when all the BD festivities are full swing. I love to see what Kristen will wear to these events...its always...Im trying to find the right word..."classy rock n roll"...I guess thats my best interpretation...(no expert by any means)....lol

ROBERT..I cant wait to hear all about the surgery!!!! I know you will do well:)

CLAIRE...OMG..Im not worrying about HIM walking, Im worried about YOU walking!:)

Hope everybody is doing well this evening!

Claire said...

It's Fio's birthday?

You kept that one to yourself Fio!!!!!

I'd just echo Smitty's comments, your video's are amazing and you obviously put a lot of time and effort into making them.

I hope you get everything you wish for and more.


Claire said...


Don't worry about me, he can't keep up with the pace I set. ;D PMSL

Rhonda said...

Hi Rose,

Sweet post today. I choose happy too :)

Robert- Best of luck tomorrow. I will be thinking of you. Take care..((Hugs))

Hi everyone- I hope it's been a great day :)

DreamerKind said...

Happy Birthday! Heard about it just now on Robstenation.

You got a jump on everyone with Fiorels birthday wishes. She is one of the very best at what she does, for sure. And, a lovely person.

All is well with me, and back at you. Regards to Gruff & Syd.

Rhonda said...

Fio- Happy Birthday!!

Smitty- Nice to see you stop by. I hope all is going well for you too :)

Super RN Gas Passer said...

CLAIRE...I HEAR you and I BELIEVE you!

FIO..happiest of birthdays!!!! Im going to go check out you latest vides. What a joy you are!

RHONDA...Hello! Nice to see you this evening:)

Super RN Gas Passer said...

Sorry FIO..I am tired and my spelling is terrible..I meant "check out your latest videos"...(eyeroll):)

Syd said...

FIO --


All the best to you Fiorels

Kenzz said...

Fio: You are a treasure here in Roseland and beyond... I wish you the best year ever: a year filled with dreams realized, goals reached, and happiness achieved through hard work and wishful thinking!

Kenzz said...

Syd: We've missed you terribly!

DreamerKind said...

Good Evening, Super, Kenzz, Claire, Rhonda, BarbaraFenwick, and anyone else I may have missed.

Claire said...


The World Cup didn't go to plan for either of out teams eh?

Sydney said...

Happiest of Birthdays to you Fio!

Syd said...

Claire it was a sad.

Hi to everyone

I'm waitng for rose to peel cats-where is she?

Rhonda said...

Hi DK, Super, Kenzz, Claire, Barbara, Smitty, Syd & Sydney :)

Claire said...


Oh well, just another 4 years to wait.

How are you?

Syd said...

Hi Kenzz-

I've missed you all too.

I cannot peel these all on my own.

Claire said...

Hi Rhonda

Claire said...

What are you peeling Syd? LOL

Kenzz said...

Syd: Why in the world is Rose peeling cats? I am a dog person through-and-through, but I would certainly never condone peeling cats... :)

Syd said...

haha-yes just 4!

Im ok but bad day. no actually a good day. Well a bd one that turnedd better.

how about you? Everythingg going well?

Sydney said...

Hi Rhonda - I feel like I haven't chatted with you in a while. How are you.

Lol...what is peeling cats?

Kenzz said...

Hi DK, Super, Claire, Rhonda, and Sydney!! Don't you just love when Smitty and the infamously funny Syd pops in???

Claire said...

I'm good

I wouldn't have minded the results usually, but getting up at 7am and then seeing the dire performances just took the piss. LOL

Glad that your day got better :)

Claire said...


I want to know what 'peeling cats' means too LOL

Rhonda said...

Syd- I'm sorry for your bad day, but glad it got better :)

Sydney- I'm great, thanks. How's it going for you?

Sydney said...

Oh BC: I'm sorry, I missed your comment to me. No I don't watch NCIS...but will check out that actress.

Kenzz...indeed. We are good company as it is, but it is always something special to have Syd and Smitty stop in. Hell to both of you, hope you're well.

DreamerKind said...

Hi, Sydney! I think they're peeling "carrots".

Kenzz said...

Syd: Hope we can continue to improve your day (or night, as the time may be)... Always, always, good thoughts and special wishes sent your way :)

Claire said...



I'm munching on a carrot as we speak!! LOL

Syd said...

Rose --peel cats with me??

Come on you gys its obvious!

No animals were harmed in the ammking of this comment. :)

Claire said...

''Come on guys it's obvious''


Sydney said...

Ooops...that was supposed to be hellO.

Rhonda - I'm doing very well, thanks. Work is freakishly busy and I'm about to do some detox cleanse so that sucks. But all else is well.

Kenzz said...

DK: I think you're right... it seems less suspect to be peeling carrots at this time of night...

SYD: You are so correct... it SHOULD have been OBVIOUS to us!! <3

Syd said...

Not carrots CATS

I'm waiting for Rose to peel cats with me!


this is fun!

Claire said...


So is peeling cats only not suspect at night? LOL

DreamerKind said...

Hi, lovely man.
Come on, I'm dim tonight and partially idiotic, too. Fess up and tell us. It's not THAT obvious to me.

I loved the ooops.

Gonna get me some of those mini carrots right now.

Rhonda said...

Sydney- I'm glad you're doing well, but..yeah the detox cleanse doesn't sound like much fun ;)

Sydney said...

Hi DK! I was just thinking about you today. Have you ever heard of The Scissor Sisters? They're a fun band. I have two requests of theirs for you to play if the mood strikes you. It Can't Come Quickly Enough and oh shit, I think the other song is untitled but it might be called I Don't Feel Like Dancing. Thanks!

Otherwise, how are you! I just followed you on twitter!

Claire said...


What do you mean peeling CATS?!?! Cats as in the furry four legged kind?

You've got my fucking head spinning here LOL

Rhonda said...

Syd- give us a hint :)

Rose said...

Come on guys... it's OBVIOUS!

Claire said...

Yes Syd, give us a hint

I'm intrigued LOL

olivia said...

Dear Fio,
Wishing you a most wonderful Happy Birthday!
You are always "gifting" everyone with your beautiful videos. May you forever receive kindness and happiness in return. (( Hugs )) to you!

Claire said...

What's obvious Rose? LOL

Kenzz said...

SYD: Cats should not be peeled, only petted...does that sound dirty, or is it just my gutter mind?... Regardless, I'm quite certain that Rose wouldn't approve, nor participate in such activities (unless you know a darker side of Rose than we're privy to!)

Why did your day start out so badly?

Rose said...

Happy Birthday, Fio <3

Rose said...

How many cats, Syd?

Rhonda said...

Rose- Help us out..peeling cats?

Syd said...


no animals involved exchept humans

so imagine JUST IMAGINE i might have been out late.

I thought of something I wanted to tell Rose

and the rest obvious.

Kenzz said...

Rose, isn't one peeled (pussy) cat enough? LOL

Sydney said...

Kenzz...well there is an alternate name for cats. Starts with a P...

DreamerKind said...

Hi, Rose!

No, that band isn't familiar. Will be happy to post those songs.
Thanks for following me on Twitter. I am just as silly on there, as I am here, just so you know what you can expect.

So nice to be here at the same time as you.

Rose said...

Yes... imagine a very pissed Syd... and imagine that Syd trying to text...

Syd said...

I will peell cats with you all night if u want Rose

Peeling cats with u is my favourite thing.

Kenzz said...

Sydney, things are starting to get more obvious!

Syd said...

Oh god--you perverts

its nothinggg to do with the P word

good god women!

Claire said...

I saw this earlier and didn't know what to think.


Who the hell would buy this? I'm a big Rob fan but this is o_O

Kenzz said...

Sorry, sorry, sorry... I blame the others!

Rose said...

Wow. Minds immediately in the gutter...

Kenzz said...

That last comment from me was dirested to Syd... :)

Sydney said...

DK...I hope so!

Rose and Syd: should we be witness to this conversation?

Super RN Gas Passer said...

Haha...I see SYD has got something going here! Good to see you SYD.

Hi and Good Night or Good Day...depending on location.

Hello DK and SYDNEY SMITTY and anyone else I missed.

It has been a long day for me so enjoy Syd...I will be interested to check when I wake up on Rose and Syd's "cat" peeling:)

Kenzz said...

Should have spelled *directed*...

and Rose, you know how this site thinks when Syd graces us with his presence... and seriously, peeled pussies...I mean, where did you expect us to go with those cryptic comments? ;0

Rose said...

peel cats. not pussies.

Syd said...

Its innocent

think if u were pissesd and couldnt type

auto correct
and u wanted someone to talk

Claire said...


''Wow. Minds immediately in the gutter...''

Best place for them Rose :D

olivia said...

**Wave** to y'all!

The only peel cats I know of are:


Hi DK!
Been very busy with lots of papers.
Are you enjoying your new place?

Sydney said...

Hi Super!

I blame Claire. She got us riled up with her reunion talk. Just kidding...my mind is always in the gutter.

DreamerKind said...

Good night, and sleep well.

I wasn't thinking of that but another "P" word. My bad.

Claire said...


I can hardly type words properly whilst sober never mind pissed.

Claire said...


Loving the Dorothy avi!!

dottie said...

Happy Birthday sweet Fio! I hope all your wishes come true!!!

Hello Roseland!

PL said...

Happy Birthday Fio!!

I'm just flying by again but I'm going to guess peel cats might be Please Chat. Just a guess and probably wrong.

Kenzz said...

Still clueless here, after imbibing in a few glasses of chardonnay... Perhaps I should simply ramble off to dreamland... maybe I'll "get it" in the AM?

If someone cares to enlighten me, you've got my email from blogger! :)

((huge hugs)) to Syd & Rose

Claire said...


Good guess

Is she right Syd/Rose?

DreamerKind said...

Thanks. My magic wand looks a little like the one in that pic, and I'm always clicking my heels to fly away somewhere.

Syd said...


PL got it

well done Penny

Kenzz said...

PL: Just saw your comment... please chat... works for me! I'm just so happy we're not condoning the desecration of felines LOL

Claire said...


What does she win?

Kenzz said...

PennyLane: You collect the grand prize this evening...congrats!

DreamerKind said...

Good job! Game over.

Rhonda said...

Syd- I'm glad you could stop by, it's always fun when you do. Take care :)

PL- Great job :)

I gotta go. Have a great night everyone....

Sydney said...

Pl: nice and logical. And not dirty. Who would have thought?

Claire said...

Goodnight Rhonda

dottie said...

Yay PL! Give her a gold star! I like your autumn avi btw.

DK I like your avi too! "There's no place like home"

Kenzz said...

Goodnite Rhonda!! Hope to "talk" to you soon...

DreamerKind said...

Yes, I bet you are very busy back teaching. My place is shaping up.
Love those cats with peels on their heads-so funny/cute. Someone on Twitter has one for their avi.

Syd said...

We wd never peel cats. We do smash hamsters with bricks but no cat peeing.

Claire said...

OMFG Syd!!!!


Rose said...

Oh Syd...

Kenzz said...

Syd: No hamster smashing, please... rat or mice smashing may be tolerable

Syd said...

thaaats not cat peening

its cat PEELING


DreamerKind said...

Sleep deep, arise bright and wide-eyed. (Hugs)

I found the camera and the USB cord, so hats pics, soon. Believe it.

Tigerlily said...

Hi everyone, a quick fly by whilst at work .. Happy birthday to Fio- hope you have a great day :)

Love the guessing work guys- my mind went straight to the gutter too ;)

Hope you are all well !

dottie said...

Bad Syd!

Claire, I saw your comment about your bf earlier and cracked up. You are too funny!

DK, yeah yeah yeah... I've heard it all before! LOL

Kenzz said...

Claire: After Syd's comments about the treatment of small mammals, I'm not sure I'd want to say, "My boyfriend is English"...


Claire said...



olivia said...

Good job PL.

Early morning ahead,
so ...
have a nice night y'all.

(Would only participate in spider smashing...and only while standing on a chair. Can't stand those little creepy, crawly things.)

Take care.

DreamerKind said...

No, really, I've never had the two items in the same place before today, for reals. Together makes pics poss.

Mint said...

I love your emoicon :)

Claire said...

I concur Olivia


And don't even think about putting any spider videos up again Syd.

DreamerKind said...


Robert said...

hey guys

they moved my surgery back a week so i'm left in the unusual position of wishing someone would drill a hole in my head

dk: i love the wizard of oz. of course the scarecrow is my favorite
if i only had a brain

today was sad. i am taking medical leave for the rest of the semester, as per doctor's orders and i had to break it to my students today. they didn't take it well

ROSE i just love the way you write. i started a blog once but could not make myself keep it going, you really do a great job of that. and as for that mc hammer thing that was the best

fio: happy birthday i second what everyone said about your videos you really have a gift

penny lane--that was the nicest thing anyone has said to me in a long time

DK and Kenzz you as well

all of you
thanks foe caring

Claire said...


Thanks for updating us.

You're in my prayers as always. :)

dottie said...

Night Olivia!

Kenzz :)

DK, I can't wait!

Robert, Keep your chin up! You're almost to the finish line now. We are all looking forward to a great outcome for you.

It's time for me to fly. I've been too busy to do more than drive by lately but hopefully that will change soon. Take care, friends.

Rose said...

Thanks Robert...
I hope everything goes well for you.

Kenzz said...

Robert: I can't believe you have to wait another week... that's quite simply torturous... I hope you can hang in there... As stated so often here, you are a special contributor in Roseland and obviously in your RL... We'll just continue to hold you in our thoughts <3

Ladies: Good night!! It's been loads of fun, but this gal is anticipating an early morning...

SYD: Thanks for the laughs this evening.. I so enjoy when you stop by... You are an endless stream of entertainment! Hope you have at least half as much fun as we do! Lots of "love" sent your way.

Rose: As Robert said, thank you for all you do!

DreamerKind said...

Hang in there. It's the game of Life, right. You're playing it.
In any state, your brain is supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!

Claire said...


Have you got anymore of those fancy emoticons for us in your next posts?

That hammer time one the other day had me in kinks.

Claire said...

Goodnight Kenzz

DreamerKind said...

Sweet dreams!

See you around.

Claire said...

It's nearly 4:00am here and I have to be up for work at 8:00, no chance LOL


Robert said...

proofread much?

thanks guys

DreamerKind said...

Late night revels, always end too soon or too late. Rest well.

DreamerKind said...

You make me laugh. Thanx. ((Hugs))

You have a good sleep, too. Tomorrow will be better for you (waving the magic wand in your direction) :)

Fiorels said...

How comes I'm never in when the party is on...?
Wow, if I knew I'd never go to sleep...
Can I cry? :') Just for a sec...
Smitty, kenzz kinda said it for me...
You just made this one of the best birthday ever, just by stopping for a quick birthday wish... you are such a caring person... really, hope you read this to have an idea of what it means for me...
that you and Syd (oh my.. adorable Syd!) took time to stop by...
i'm like.. out of words...
just thanks guys... :')
thanks to all of you, AMAZING people!! :')))
and to Rose of course. Without you all this would be kinda impossible...

And gosh... i totally LMAO reading the comments! bwahahaha
thanks for those <3

and Robert, so sorry you have to wait another week! But i'm one fate-believer and always think things happen for a reason.
So just hold on!

DreamerKind said...

For Fiorels

Shining Star

Yeah, hey
When you wish upon a star
Dreams will take you very far, yeah
When you wish upon a dream
Life ain't always what it seems, oh yeah
Once you see your light so clear
In the sky so very dear

Shining bright to see what you can truly be
That you can truly be

Shining star come into view
Shine is watchful light on you, yeah

Future roads for you to pass
Love to watch your mug past

The sinful redeeming shall be true
On an adventure of the sun, yeah
Yeah it's all awake and just begun
Yeah, thought I had to stir the mood

So if you find yourself in need
Why don't you listen to his words of heat
Be a child free of sin
Be some place, yes I can
Words of Wisdom: Yes I can

For Sydney

I Don't Feel Like Dancin'

Scissor Sisters (Live):

Wake up in the morning with a head like ˜what ya done?"
This used to be the life but I don't need another one.

You like cuttin' up and carrying on, you wear them gowns.
So how come I feel so lonely when you're up getting down?

So I'll play along when I hear that special song
I'm gonna be the one who gets it right.
You'd better move when you're swayin' round the room

Looks like the magic's only ours tonight
But I don't feel like dancin'
When the old Joanna plays
My heart could take a chance
But my two feet can't find a way

You'd think that I could muster up a little soft-shoe gentle sway
But I don't feel like dancin'
No sir, no dancin' today.
Don't feel like dancin', dancin'

Even if i find nothin' better to do
Don't feel like dancin', dancin'
Why'd you pick a tune when I'm not in the mood?
Don't feel like dancin', dancin'
I'd rather be home with the one in the bed till dawn, with you,

Cities come and cities go just like the old empires
When all you do is change your clothes and call that versatile.
You got so many colours make a blind man so confused.
Then why can't I keep up when you're the only thing I lose?

So I'll just pretend that I know which way to bend
And I'm gonna tell the whole world that you're mine.
Just please understand, when I see you clap your hands
If you stick around I'm sure that I'll be fine

You can't make me dance around
But your two-step makes my chest pound.
Just lay me down as you float away into the shimmer light.

Thank you/djkarles

DreamerKind said...

Have a great time in Cali, and a safe return. Tell us all about it, too, will you?

Birdie said...

Thank you for dropping by and letting us know about the talented Fio's birthday. Hope everything is stellar with you and yours!
I hope you had a wonderful bithday and that this is the beginning of a fabulous year! I loved your last video by the way,but I always love your videos.
Sorry to hear about the postponement. I love that you can keep your sense of humor. That will most certainly help with your recovery. Not that you will need one, but I just think patients with the right attitude recover better.
Always a treat to see Syd and Rose stop by.
PL you've got the job as Roseland's interpreter.
Gone to bed yet?

Cast Your Fate To The Wind

Steve Alaimo:

A month of nights, a year of days
Octobers drifting into Mays
You set your sail when the tide comes in
And you just cast your fate to the wind

I shift my course along the breeze
And sail upwind on memories
The empty sky is my best friend
And you just cast your fate to the wind

For time has such a way of changing
A man through all the years
And now I'm rearranging
My life through all the tears.
Alone. Alone. Alone.

There never was, or will to be
A place or time where meant to be.
You trip the dark and laugh at day
Let your wildest dreams blow away

So now you're old
You're wise or smart
You're Just a man
With half a heart
You wonder how it might have been
Had you not cast your fate to the wind

Thank you/papadoronday

DreamerKind said...

Feel the wind? May it caress your day.

I'm off, blown away. My wildest dreams, will lead the way.

Fare thee well, everyone. ^-^

DreamerKind said...

Blown back again, to see your comment. Nah, I'm not anything yet, still casting my fate.

Birdie said...

Sorry I didn't get back. Sleep well!

Kay said...

Your new video is absolutely beautiful, Fio. You are so incredibly talented!

Happy Birthday!

katy said...

Hi Rose,

Thanks for another excellent post.

Fio, Happy Birthday!! Wish you the the best of everything.
Your R&K: So amazing vid...well, is...AMAZING! :)

Smitty and Syd, so sweet of you to drop by to wish Fio a happy birthday. Hope all is well with two and of course with Gruff too.

Happy Wednesday everyone
Take care

olivia said...

Dear Rose,
Wish to thank you for the lovely posts these last two days. Love the black and white gif of Rob and Kristen. Those precious two always make me smile. Just wishing them the most wonderful life together and continued creative success in their projects.

Fio, wow, another "amazing" vid. You go, girl. We will surely see your name on the big screen one day soon.

Hugs for you Robert. Waiting is difficult, annoying. and really sucks. This too shall pass. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

A big hug for Smitty, Gruff, Syd and Rose. Life is good and y'all help make it so. The world needs more genuine, caring and loyal people like you.

Am off to work and then will celebrate a very special birthday of a dear friend later today.

Have a beautiful day y'all.

Melinda said...

Wow Rose, you hit another one out of the park! Love the pics that went with the post as well.

Their chemistry is undeniable. It's fun to watch them, I won't deny it. But for the most part I do wish them peace even if that means no pics and whatnot.

Excited for BD promo and the Twi Con. I'm sure we will see some cute moments if the past is any indication.

Fio- HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY!! I hope you had a fantastical day!

Love the song choice for your new video. Always well done!

Robert- Keep your chin up! I wish you patience and peace while you wait it out.

Leni- Glad to hear that your guy made it home safely.

Smitty- It's good to see you pop by. I hope life is going well for you and yours.

Syd- Thanks for the laughs this morning. I hope all is well for you too.

I hope everyone has a great hump day!

Leni said...

Hang in there! The time shall pass as quickly as possible and in the end everything will work out just fine!

Happy Birthday!
Every single one of your videos brings a huge smile to my face - you are such an incredibly talented and gifted person!
Your newest video is amazing and you all give us a gift although it's your birthday - I wish I had something to give back to you..
Thank you as always and HAPPY BIRTHDAY again :)

Anna said...


The simplest things just go right over my head sometimes. I hadn't put together that you were one putting together those great videos until I read some of the comments. Two nights ago I sat here and put all 26 videos on autoplay...that's how much I love them! Just saw a new one came in this morning through emails...going watch right now! Thanks!

Anna said...

Happy Birthday Fio!

Muse said...

G'morning Roseland residents!
Rose, Rose *sighing* what to say? It's undeniable!
And I looove yr emoticons, pls reveal this lil secret of yrs to me LOL

Now, ladies and gents, a loud cheer to our Fio for her amazing vid...and the song? To die for!
I loooved the stars effect on each one of them and then on both *sniff*, I left a comment there as well as in yr twitter...

Robert, I know how annoying it is to be in the 'waiting room' ugh...hang in there, be sure all of these beautiful Roselanders are backing you up, myself included!

DK *clap clap* did I already say I love yr rhymes? I do!

Awww Rose...when I saw this, I instantly thought of you...may I? Hope it's not inappropriate *wink*.


Good day to yall!

jlsentangledweb said...

Great post, Rose!
I choose to be happy, too.

Hope said...

How sweet of Smitty and Syd to stop by and let us know!
Wishing you a birthday year filled with everything your heart desires. I know you have had a rough go of it lately, so I hope you had some fun yesterday.
Just watched your latest AMAZING video...standing ovation! PERFECT!

Robert... Sorry you had a sad day saying goodbye to your students. You obviously mean a lot to them as well. Hang in there...sorry for the delay but it will be worth it.

Hope everyone has a great day.

A Let's Be Happy Song

I Choose Happiness

David Choi:

If you wanna be goofy
Go right ahead
It’s fine with me

If you wanna do something
That’ll make you happy
By all means, please

Those bad days come and go
But it’s ok though
You see, we have a choice
And I’m gonna make the best of it

I choose happiness
I choose peace
I choose beauty
And love, love, love, love

I choose grace
I choose joy
I choose life
And love, love, love, love

Doo, doo, doo…

You can go paint a picture
Or go fly a kite
Enjoy your life

Don’t go around
With that sad face
Life’s too short
To live that way
Choose to be happy

Those bad days come and go
But it’s ok though

You see, we have a choice
And I’m gonna make the best of it

I choose happiness
I choose peace
I choose beauty
And love, love, love, love

I choose grace
I choose joy
I choose life
And love, love, love, love

Thank you/xxchrisxx153624

Good afternoon!

I am giddy today, can you tell? And, I am on here early, can you believe it?

Well, I'm off soon, to the birthday dinner for my 31 year old son! No wonder I'm dancin, prancin, choosing, and schmoozing.

Just had to share this with you, my dear Sillybillies!

Let 'Em In

Paul McCartney & Wings (1976):

Someone's knockin' at the door
Somebody's ringin' the bell
Someone's knockin' at the door
Somebody's ringin' the bell
Do me a favor,
Open the door and let 'em in

Sister Suzie, brother John,
Martin Luther, Phil And Don,
Uncle Ernie, Auntie Gin,
Open the door
Let 'em in.

Someone's knockin' at the door
Somebody's ringin' the bell
Someone's knockin' at the door
Somebody's ringin' the bell
Do me a favor,open the door
And let em in
Ooh, yeah let em in

Do me a favor,open the door
And let em in
Yeah yeah yeah

Thank you/BeatlesTributePage

bcaceres30 said...

i dont understand why people are saying that kristen is an entitled brat just because she left high school and said she did not have the support from her teachers.

DreamerKind said...

I second that emotion. People squawk, talk, but don't walk the walk. Walk a mile in someone's shoes, and then, maybe. Agree!

DreamerKind said...

I Second That Emotion

Emilie Mover:

Maybe you'll wanna give me kisses sweet
But only for one night and no repeat

And maybe you'll go away and never call
And a taste of honey is worse than none at all

In that case i don't want nobody
I do believe that would only break my heart

Oh, but if you feel like lovin' me
If you got the notion
I second that emotion

Say, if you feel like giving me
A lifetime of devotion
I second that emotion

Maybe you'll think that love will tie you down
And you don't have the time to hang around

Or maybe you'll think that love will make us fools
And so it makes you wise to break the rules

In that case I don't want nobody
I do believe that would only break my heart

Oh, but if you feel like lovin' me
If you got the notion
I second that emotion

Thank you/thisandthat62

All right, all ready, I'll be gone.

DK-Happy 31st Birthday to your son. I hope you all have a wonderful celebration!

Freddie said...

Hi folks,

I hope everyone has had a great day. Looks like I missed a party last night.

Fio – I wanted to add my belated best wishes to you for a wonderful birthday. I hope you had a great celebration and got to kick up your heels.

Robert – sorry to hear about your delay. I’m sure it’s very frustrating, but as Birdie said, I love your sense of humour and positive outlook

Syd – you are a blast. I think you should issue a “Syd’s Auto-Correct Thesaurus” or issue a “Syd decoder ring” so we can decipher your messages. LOL.

PL – you are the only one who doesn’t need Syd’s thesaurus. Congrats on your skills of deduction

Smitty – lovely to see you drop in. I hope all is well with you.

IB – loved the stripping/hooking discussion yesterday. Very saucy….. LOL.

Claire – glad your reunion with your BF was “memorable”. I’m choosing my words carefully so as to not be indiscreet. Ha ha.

Olivia – loved your cats with orange peel pictures. And I’m with you on the spider bashing

DK – I’ll post a couple Lara songs in a little bit. Oh – and I’m eagerly awaiting those hat pictures. Enjoy your son’s birthday party.

Special call out to the ladies of the Northeast chapter.

I hope everyone is well and has a great evening. Take care.

katy said...

Dreamer, Happy 31st Birthday to your son. :)

Take care everyone

Freddie said...

Hi DK - I hope you had a wonderful time at your son's birthday.

I'm finally getting around to posting two of my favourite Lara Fabian songs: "Love By Grace" and "Not from Here". She has quite a wonderful voice. You may have already come upon them if you searched YouTube for her. On the off chance you didn't, I hope you enjoy them.

Love by Grace

I remember the rain on the roof that morning
And all the things that I wanted to say
The angry words that came from nowhere without warning
That stole the moment and sent me away
And you standing there at the
doorway crying
And me wondering if I'd ever be back

I said I didn't come here to leave you
I didn't come here to lose
I didn't come here believing I would ever be away from you
I didn't come here to find out
There's a weakness in my faith
I was brought here by the power of love
Love by grace

And I remember the road just
went on forever
Just couldn't seem to turn that
car around
'Til in the distance like a long
lost treasure
A phone booth that just could
not be found
And you standing there at the
doorway waiting
And the moment when we laid
back down

That was just a moment in time
And one we'll never forget
One we can leave behind
'Cause when there was doubt
You'll remember I said

I didn't come here believing I would ever be away from you
I didn't come here to find out
There's a weakness in my faith
I was brought here by the power of love
I was brought here by the power of love
Love by grace


Freddie said...

DK - Part 2

Not From Here

I don't know what is going on
You turn around and touch my heart
A silent moment speaks the truth
Something has happened all at once
It should have scared me in advance
But I was falling in those eyes of yours
And so
Fear was gone
I knew there was nothing else
I'd ever want

I know you
You're not from here
I've waited for you to appear
To take my breath away
And make me weep
You're not from here
Not from this here and now
Just a touch of yours
And I fly... and I fly... and I fly

I can't get used to missing you
If this is how it's gotta be
I need an angel to watch over me
No one can hold the hands of time
But I can hold you in my mind
Over and over like a melody
For now
I'll stand still
For now
I'll be filled by the memory of your skin

I know you
You're not from here
You don't belong to lies and tears
The greatness of your soul
Makes me weep
You're not from here
Not from this here and now
Just a touch of yours
And I fly... and I fly... and I fly


I hope you like them. Have a great night.

Super RN Gas Passer said...

Good evening Roseland...Another long day and I am already "asleep at the wheel"...the computer anyway....haha..Just wanted to stick my head in and say hello to everyone and hope you have had a good day.

FREDDIE..Hello and I know DK will be delighted to see your song post...

SYD...You are a doll!(Of course you werent trying to be obscene...we do let our imaginations get the best of us sometimes) haha...Take care of your precious self!

SMITTY..My apologies to you..when I posted initially last night I did not see your post until later. I am so glad you could stop by...take care:)

Good Night All...

Freddie said...

Hi Super - I'm just popping in for the last time before heading off to bed, but I wanted to say hello. It sounds like you've had some busy days. I hope all is well with you.

You always have the best avis.

Take care.

DreamerKind said...

Thanks so much for posting those songs. I look forward to listening to them, and will add them to the Roseland song archives!

@katy & dottie
I appreciate the bday wishes for my son. We had a lovely time at dinner. The food was delicious and we all tried some cocktails with sake in them. Very smooth.

Soon it will be Friday, and some relaxing time for you, unless you are on call again.

Can't wait to meet my kindergarten friend tomorrow. We haven't seen each other for over 40 years. On her way to Ireland on a Chicago stopover; we'll have lunch near the airport, and a good talk. We have about 4 hours to do that. Wonderful!

Lots of great songs were posted for your listening pleasure today. I'll be gathering up some more for the weekend, and of course, love to play your requests.


DreamerKind said...

Listened to Lara and she has a very beautiful voice and delivery. Imagine, she can sing in 4 languages, too. This world is filled with such talent and grace. Oh, how happy you have made me, Fredster.

DreamerKind said...

What a marvelous website you linked for us, so full of pics of Rob & his bb's!
I have never, ever seen so many outstanding shots of Tom, Sam, Andrew, Marcus, Peter, Taylor, Bobby, Kellan and the others.
Thanks aren't enough.
I'll post a song soon, just for you Muse.

Have you looked at that site yet?

Once more, in case anyone has missed this link from Muse:


wania said...

Rose... what beautiful!... touched me much... your words... pics... everything lovely!

Rob and Kristen are a nature force...like magnets ( great analogy )... irresistible atraction... impossible to contain... strong... beautiful... powerful...

I'm with "saudades" them! I miss seeing my childs... rsrsrs... I know... is a crazy thing... this love for them... no racional explication... only feelings ... good feelings... they inspire this in me ... the Rob's smile, makes me smile together with him... see them happy... makes my day, my week, put a smile on my face, ever.

I saw Spot TV Breaking Down...WOW! Bill Condon was right choice!

Robert...thinking, wishing the best for you!

DK, my sweet friend... Emotion, joy, excitement, rush and some dancing... this is part of the best celebrations... Happyness, health and success for your son...
And... a amazing meet with your kindergarten friend...

Hugs for all


DreamerKind said...

You are kind to comment.
Dancing is my favorite part of celebrating, but good company is the best. How bright you make the night, when you're here.

Pshaw! I need to go to bed early tonight, so I can be human earlier, too, for the meet & greet fete with the ole galpal.

Dimming the lights, and softly, I will leave you, softly.

DreamerKind said...

Softly As I Leave You

Brenda Lee:

Softly, I will leave you softly
For my heart would break
If you should wake and see me go

So I leave you softly
Long before you miss me
Long before your arms
Can beg me stay

For one more hour
Or one more day
After all the years
I can't bear the tears to fall

Long before you kiss me
Long before your arms
Can beg me stay

For one more hour
Or one more day

So softly as I leave you there
As I leave you there

Thank you/ame746

Dear Rose,

Love, love your post always.
This hatred for K is unbelievable.

HEAVEN in her eyes,
in every gesture DIGNITY AND LOVE"
