Rob and Kristen-- Hearts Don't Lie


Happy Valentine's Day!

I do hope that everyone who reads my words
has a happy and well loved heart.
Not just today... but always.

Valentines Day is a nice way to let someone know
that you love them...
So I thought I would write about things...
People...
I love.

I don't want to get too personal here...
So suffice to say that 
I love my family... my friends...
My 2 incredible
wonderful
smart
witty
adorable
brilliant
handsome
sons
More than life.
And I really love life.


But lets move on to a simpler
less complicated love.

Things I love
In no particular order.



1. Paul McCartney.
I've loved him for a very long time...
Since I was but a wee lass of 10
and I found the Beatles.

I love the Beatles.
Their music means everything to me.
Yeah... I know.
Me and a zillion other people.
But as I sit here today
I have no doubt that Lennon/McCartney
saved my life.
They were there for me at the lowest part of my existence.
If it wasn't for their music coming through my headphones
Drowning out everything else...
I might not have made it.
I've always had a particular fondness for Paul.
He does write 'Silly Love Songs'
But he has also written some of the most beautiful lyrics
Usually for the women he loves.

"Bright are the stars that shine
Dark is the sky...
I know this love of mine
Will never die
And I love her"

"Who knows how long I've loved you
You know I love you still.
Will I wait a lonely lifetime?
If you want me to...
I will."

"Baby, I'm amazed at the way you love me all the time,
and maybe I'm afraid of the way i leave you.
maybe I'm amazed at the way you pulled me out of time,
you hung me on the line.
maybe I'm amazed at the way i really need you."


I could go on and on here...
The man loves love.
He loves being in love.
He loves singing about love.

Paul was on the Grammys the other night.
Still rocking in his 60's...
He performed a classic Beatles song...
Carry That Weight/The End
And the classic line...

And in the end
The love you take
Is equal to the love you make.

That is brilliant.
That is incredible.
That is SO Paul.
And that is so True.



2. I have this thing about baby bunnies.
Well... all bunnies.
I love bunnies.
I have lots of bunnies in my house.
(I try to be discreet in my bunny love)
But there is something about baby bunnies...
I mean...
Look at this guy.
Is that the most adorable bunny ever?
You can't look at a picture of a baby bunny
and NOT smile.

My love of bunnies goes to Bugs Bunny too...
My favorite cartoon.
Smartass Rabbit
Who is sarcastic and obnoxious
and always gets the last laugh.
What's not to love?



3. Breaking Dawn Wedding Scene.
Um.
Rob and Kristen are beyond adorable here.
Look at her squish his nose all cute and sweet.
Look at him loving her squishing his nose...
I'm sorry.
I always go back to Robert's smile.
His smile when he is around Kristen.
Right.
It's a movie.
He's acting.
But he smiles like that ALL the time around her.
All.
The.
Time.
That's what hits me about this wedding scene...
How REAL it seems.
Beyond Edward and Bella.
How Rob and Kristen embraced the moment.
The feelings.
The "I love you"



4. Oh my.
Look at Tom's adorable shoes.
I love Robert and Thomas.
I love that they are great friends.
I love that no matter what...
They remain loyal
steadfast
and true.
I love how they are both so damn gorgeous.
And how they both have had an effect on me.
I love watching them in their movies.
I love watching them.
Laughing.
Walking.
Being awkward.
Being adorable.
Remaining as they were.
Loyal.
Steadfast
and True.


5. I adore Kristen Stewart.
I love her smile.
I love how she embraces who she is...
I love that sometimes she gets nervous and shy.
I love that she would rather wear t-shirts and jeans
than get all dressed up...
I love how intensely she feels for her work.
I love how she can't wait to kick off her heels.
I love how she looks at Robert.

I love how she makes Rob smile.
I love that she loves him.

I love that he has fallen in love with her.


6. Robert Walking.
Still does something to me.
Affects me.
It's a combination of things I guess...
He seems a bit shy about it
A bit awkward.
But he somehow always manages
to stride
strut
stroll
In a most mesmerizing way...


And this one?
Top 3.
Top 2.
He's all wrinkled and tousled
His hair is a lovely mess
He has an incredible smirk on his face.
Early Robert.
Some of the best Robert
EVER.
Love it.



7. Robert and Kristen.
2 people who I have come to love
watching them be in love.
I'm not sure why it makes me so damn happy
that they are in love.
But it does.
I guess love and happy are good things to be.
It's been quite a journey seeing them fall in love
Over 3 years now.
They have proven to me
time and time again
That they choose to be together.
That there is nowhere else
they would rather be.

You know the mantra by now...
"Rob and Kristen always end up together"

I love the truth.


8. I love Tom Sturridge.
I know I have 'waxed poetic' about him endlessly...
But I love how good he is to those he loves.
How he protects Kristen.
And Rob.
And how he doesn't feel the need to discuss
his personal relationships with the press.
things that are happening in his life.
He deserves happiness.
If Tom is smiling and happy...
So goes Rose.


9. This is one of my favorite pictures of Tom.
Scruffy.
No hat.
And staring intently into the camera
with those incredible blue eyes.
One of his lopsided smiles would have made this perfect.
But I'm not complaining.
At all.

This post is brought to you by Valentines Day
and Love.
And Bunnies.

It's true you know...
Some bunny loves you.
Always
and Forever.





You are so beautiful...
To me.

Happy Hearts Everyone.

Bye for now

Happy Valentine's Day, Rose! I'm such a sucker for the sap. :)

Hello and lots of love to the Roseland gang! I hope it's a Happy Valentine's Day for all of you! ♥♥♥

Rhonda said...

Sweet post, Rose <3

Happy Valentine's Day to you, and all of Roseland. I hope this day is filled with much love and happiness for you all...

marley said...

Happy Valentines's Day Everyone!

Great post Rose, as always!! I Too am a sucker for love stories or seeing people madly in love. I hope Rob & Kristen have a great Valentine's Day as well as Tom and his lovely lady!

Freddie said...

Hi Rose,

Lovely post. You’ve picked some pretty special people to “love” and they are lucky in return to have you in their court, providing unwavering support, witty snark (as you call it) coupled with your uncanny ability to shine a light on the truth. I’m sure the admiration would be mutual….

You’re right Rose…..I too love that Rob and Kristen love each other. It is something very special. Something I hope they continue to treasure and safeguard. I wish them, and Tom, much happiness.

To everyone in Roseland, I wish you all the most wonderful of Valentines’ Day and hope you get to spend it with the ones you love.

Take care all.

angelica1 said...

Really nice post Rose :)

Happy Valentine's Day, everyone!

PL said...

I have to agree this was a very sweet post.

As some of you know I tend to be a bit of a cynic. When someone goes on about love or their feelings, I usually roll my eyes and shake my head. But I mean with all sincerity that this was an especially nice way to note the day.

Happy Valentine's Day Roseland!

katy said...

Aww, sweet post, Rose

Happy Valentine's Day to you Rose, everyone in Roseland, Tom, and the sweet beautiful couple, Rob and Kristen, I hope they are having a lovely Valentine's day and everyone here too.

Take Care.

Kay said...

Happy Valentine's Day Rose and everyone stopping by Roseland! I hope all of your days are filled with love...and chocolate...and wine...and lots of happy, too. <3

Sweet words on this lovely day we celebrate. Want to say Happy Valentine's day again to all b/c there can never be enough love in the world!

One of my favorite "love" songs is called Book of Love by Peter Gabriel. It's not your typical love songs so that may be why I love it so much. Passing it along in case you've never heard it before...

Heading out to a romantic (hopefully) dinner with the hubby soon, so need to get out the flat-iron and make-up! Have a great evening, friends :)

kristinson60 said...

Happy Valentines Day Rose! I hope it's been a very special one for you.
Love, how wonderful Love is when you find that 1 very special person you were destined to be with for life. Not all the gold or money in the world could ever be better than that kind of Love.
I like you just love watching Rob & Kristen be so in Love. Some people just think that's crazy but what is so crazy about watching two people be so incredibly happy in the tumultuous world we live in tody.
They say a smile, just one little smile can turn a persons whole day around into something more productive. So imagine if everyone just looked at Rob & Kristen's smiles not only at each other but in general once every day how much more wonderful everyones days would be; I mean look at those smiles, they are from ear to ear, they are excited smiles, they are glowing smiles and along with the glow on their faces along with it who could ask for more. So here's to love and to smiles and to happiness!!!

Super RN Gas Passer said...

Dear ROSE... I LOVED your post!!!

I love everything you said. I also loved the Beatles. Of course I think I am much older than you. I was 7 years old when they were introduced to America on the Ed Sullivan Show ... So many wonderful memories... Too many years have gone by and then I was grown and in Anesthesia School when John Lennon was killed.... I cried and cried..It broke my heart....sigh

Bunny Rabbits... I have lots of them in my yard .. and I was just talking to someone the other day about the cartoons I watched as a child... Bugs Bunny, Fog Horn Leg Horn, ....we used to run home every afternoon to watch the Looney Tunes and Tarzan... Boy, those were the days...I wish I could be a kid again!

Happy Valentines Everyone!

Happy Valentine's Day!

@Rose
So glad you got the love you needed, when love was needed so. Now here you are sharing with us.
Love makes the world go round.

@Roselanders
Have a lovely day!

Barbara Fenwick said...

I absolutely loved your post today, so sweet. I hope all Roselanders have love in their lives, because love makes everything possible.

I, like you have loved watching Rob and Kristen fall in love. There is something so special about them, and I never get tired of seeing them together. Their love is obvious to anyone who looks at them.

Happy Valentine's Day everyone. I hope all of you enjoy this special day.

stekl said...

nicely done rose. thank you

LIZ said...

HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!!!

Rose, thank you for such a nice post today!!! You always say it RIGHT, everything I'm feeling and more.

I am totally single, got Valentine kisses from my dog, LOL, and flowers from my boss just to be nice BUT, knowing that R & K are together and happy makes me as happy as if I had someone special in my life.

Teeth said...

Rose, your so full of suprises!

My alter ego/animal thing is, take a guess,


A BUNNY! And I kid you not my middle name is Rose.
Too crazy.

Happy Valentines Day RoseWorld.

Happy day after Valentines Day everyone! I hope you all had a day filled w/ love, and got to spend it w/ the important people in your life. That's exactly what I did.

Hugs to all!

Making Change When It Strikes

Urge For Going

Joni Mitchell:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?NR=1&feature=endscreen&v=mMhNTFzmRw0

I awoke today and found the frost perched on the town
It hovered in a frozen sky
Then it gobbled summer down

When the sun turns traitor cold
And shivering trees are standing in a naked row
I get the urge for going but I never seem to go

I get the urge for going
When the meadow grass is turning brown
Summertime is falling down and winter is closing in

I had me a man in summertime
He had summer-colored skin
And not another girl in town
My darling's heart could win

But when the leaves fell trembling down
Bully winds did rub their faces in the snow
He got the urge for going
And I had to let him go

He got the urge for going
When the meadow grass was turning brown
Summertime was falling down and winter was closing in

The warriors of winter they gave a cold triumphant shout
And all that stays is dying and all that lives is getting out

See the geese in chevron flight Flapping and racing on before the snow
They've got the urge for going They've got the wings to go

They get the urge for going
When the meadow grass is turning brown
Summertime is falling down and winter is closing in

I'll ply the fire with kindling and pull the blankets to my chin
And I'll lock the vagrant winter out and bolt my wandering in

I'd like to call back summertime and have her stay just another month or so
She's got the urge for going
And I guess she'll have to go

And she get the urge for going when meadow grass is turning brown
All her empires are falling down
Winter's closing in

Thank you/ShellDaleWay

So excited for Rob enroute to Berlin for Bel Ami's premiere. I, and so many other fans support him in every way!

Well wishes out to Rose, Smitty, Gruff, Syd and you darling Roselanders!

Say It With Music

Hearts

Marty Balin:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u1fRX0yiL_c

Is everything alright
I just called to say
How lost I feel without you
Miles away
I really can't believe I'm near
And how I still care about you

Hearts can break
And never mend together
Love can fade away
Hearts can cry
When love won't stay forever
Hearts can be that way

Is everything the same
Do you ever think of me
And how we loved one another
Will you change your mind
Will you want me back again
Or have you found yourself a new love

Is everything Ok
I just thought I'd write a song
To tell the world how I miss you
'Cos each and every day
I think of all the words I never said
And all the chances that I had to

Hearts can break
And never mend together
Love can fade away
Hearts can cry
When love won't stay forever
Hearts can be that way

Hearts can be that way
Hearts can be
Is everything alright

Thank you/purplefairy10

Butterfly Baby

Angelina Perete & Daughter/Roger Wang:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PQ_ghmA66xU

Fly, fly little butterfly
Got me curious when you fly by
Where you're from
And where you're going
Did anyone ask why

Mommy loves me
That's forever
Daddy'll worry
When I get older
I'm just wonderin'
How far I'll see
How clever I could be...

Mommy, Mommy
Look what I can do
I can dance and sing real loud
For you how I move now
You can see
Oh I hope you'll be proud of me

Oh baby, baby
You're my pride and joy
You make me feel
Like I'm the Queen of Troy

When you're happy
Sun will shine
Oh we're wrapped up
In this moment of time

Here you are
My darling little girl
There are joys and pain
In this world

When you're ready
The truth you will be told
I'll let you know

But for now
You and your brothers
Fill you lives
With loving each other

Once you've grown
You're flying together
My love protects you dears

Oh baby, baby
You're my pride and joy
You make me feel
Like I'm the Queen of Troy

When you're happy
Sun will shine
Oh we're wrapped up
In this moment of time
La, la, la, la, la, la
Doo,doo,doo,doo,doo,doo
Oh we're
Wrapped up in this moment
Of time

Thank you/videographicpro

The Honeymoon Song

The Beatles (1963):
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yzy2J1MLvOQ

I never knew
That a day like today lay before us
I've got the sun in my heart
And my heart's in the sun

Skies are as bright as your eyes
The horizon is open
Love is the ceiling
Feelings are reeling
Free as the air

Forever on and forever
Forever on side by side
Who ever knew
That we two
Could be free as we'd fancy

Fancy is free
But are we
Who are bound to each other by love
To each other by love

Thank you/ZorbasTv

Syd & Gruff Knew

Man Of The World

Marc Cohn:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cjaNMv97tCI

I want to be a man of the world
With blood in my veins and a hurt in my heart
Out in the street with the noise and the dirt
And the ones still looking for a brand new start

Oh I've been sleeping far too long
Hiding out in a palace of gold
Show me one thing before I'm gone
That can't be bought and can't be sold

Show me how
To come alive
Show me how
To make you mine

'Cause if you'd only be my girl
I could be a man of the world
Then I could be
A man of the world

Thank you/StefVVV19

Happy Belated Valentines Day Roselanders! Real Life is kicking my ass! Hope everyone had a great day! Rose loved this post!

Super RN Gas Passer said...

Berry... I hear you! I hope things calm down very soon. Take care.

ladyevenstar22 said...

i watched a couple of hallmark films over the past few days like the lost valentine, accidentally in love, smooch, bridal fever, sunday's at tiffany!
i just felt in the mood to believe in love , to believe there's someone out there that's get you and you'd get them just the way they/you are flaws and all!
still single but when i see robert and kristen together i can't help but believe it does exist!
i love that shy kinda coy smile kristen gets when she's around rob, you can just tell she's holding back from been effusive which makes it not hard to believe that fan account of her been super affectionate to rob at his friend concert in london a while back! and i too also love that she's the reason there's a huge smile that shines as bright as a sun on rob's face!!!
that's why i'll never understand the loonies resistance, stop being so grumpy and come over to the light where real fans are fuzzy happy because he's happy and we don't need to know every detail of his life either, just seeing the bubble is enough to cheer up my day!

Super RN Gas Passer said...

Good Morning ROSE and ROSELAND.

I am home this morning and sitting on the couch with my I Pad waiting on the press conference to start!

ROBERT and KRISTEN... Wishing you happiness and great success and accolades galore for Bel Ami!

Annie said...

Good morning all.
I have to say I love Rob's lack of hair on his head. :)

Take care everybody.

Super: Enjoy the show. :)

Looking forward to seeing Bel Ami.........I loved the book.

Super RN Gas Passer said...

ROB....You could never be "horrible". Lol. Great press conference. I am so glad you had the opportunity to work with such a fine group of individuals!

Super RN Gas Passer said...

Good MornIng ANNIE...Did you watch the press conference?

Annie said...

Hey Super........Just a bit on my phone.
Is it over now?

Lisa said...

Wow... One more photocall, one more set of pictures of Rob checking his co-star's boobs. And the premiere hasn't even started yet. This is kind of predictable at this point, isn't it? He does this every time. Cosmopolis promo next, Sarah Gadon's boobs next. Nice!

I thought it was kind of funny the first time, now I think it's just rude. He knows he's being photographed so, I wonder if he does this on purpose or if he just can't control himself.

Anyway, congrats Rob, everybody is talking about this now. But don't worry, your fans think it's hilarious.
I wonder if they would find hilarious if your girlfriend was caught looking at her co-stars's *intimate parts* everytime she has to promote a movie. Yeah, I don't think so! She would be called a slut for sure and trashed for not being respectful to you.

katy said...

Ohh, STFU....Lisa, it's people like you and some of his crazy fans, that make up shit like this. If you see the vid of them taking pics we can clearly see that Rob isn't looking to nobody's boobs. THAT IS JUST WEIRD CAMERA ANGLES.

Super RN Gas Passer said...

ANNIE...Lol...Yes it was over shortly after I posted..Didn't mean to leave you...had to get ready to go to work..ughHave a good one!

ali mac said...

Once again someone who ISN'T a fan of Rob coming onto a fan site for Rob to make up crap about him. They have obviously spent their free time watching a video with Rob in it when they are not a fan, could someone please explain this madness to me!!!!!

Lisa said...

"Rob isn't looking to nobody's boobs"

LOL! Are you fucking kidding? Yes he IS, there're several pics where you can see him checking her out. Everybody is talking about this. He couldn't be more obvious if he tried and he has done this with every co-star. Oh, never mind, we'll probably have some more during the premiere.

Leni said...

Oh my.. I'm not even going to comment on that.

How awesome is it that we finally get to see Rob again! And he looks amazing :)

Teeth said...

I just wanna say, that I kinda like bald Rob.

XD

Super RN Gas Passer said...

LISA....Are you kidding ? Rob is tall. He HAS to look down and turn his head toward the actress that is much shorter. I guess anybody can misconstrue. My opinion is it's just people trying to start " something"....

Hi AliMAC and LENI and TEETH:)

ali mac said...

Hi Super

I was so pleased to see so much of Rob, with the long press con and all, it really makes up for the times of drought!!

Lisa said...

@Super RN Gas Passer

Sure, lol.
Go check the comments (photocall) @robsessed, everyone was talking about that!

ali mac said...

LISA well you go and put your comments on Robsessed then. No one here is interested in this crap!!!

Super RN Gas Passer said...

ALI MAC... Yes it was lovely to see him and I am very happy for his success. Such good stuff !

Annie said...

Hello Super and Ali Mac.

Lisa: You are boring us.

Super RN Gas Passer said...

Hi Annie...Sorry I missed you earlier:)

Annie said...

Super: That's ok...... I read that you were getting ready for work.

angelica1 said...

Hi Super,Annie,Leni,ali mac,Teeth.

Lisa - Firstly, you're talking out of your backside. You and the few other cackling hens need to grow up fast and secondly, I have absolutely no idea why this is bothering you either way, you're not Kristen, so by definition, whatever he chooses to look at has bugger all to do with you. Now please run along back to your playground and let the grown ups get on with appreciating Rob's success

Super RN Gas Passer said...

Hi Angelica... Nice to see you. Did you catch any of the Berlin festivities!

Annie said...

Hi Angelica. :)

angelica1 said...

Hi Super - I was out all day but I've managed to catch up since I got home :)

Rhonda said...

Hi all, I hope it's been a good Friday..

I've just had a look at some of the pics and video from Berlin-Rob looks great. I'm liking the buzz cut ;)

Angelica- loved your response @4:20well done :)

Super RN Gas Passer said...

Hi Rhonda.,. Back at work waiting for a patient to come up:(

Rhonda said...

Hi Super- are you on call this weekend?

Super RN Gas Passer said...

Rhonda. No just tonight but I have to sit in a computer class all day tomorrow. Ugh!

olivia said...

Dear Rose and Roseland,

So very proud of Rob!

He was looking so handsome both on the panel and on the red carpet. His short hair is an excellent, mature look for him. The suit and long coat looked great.

How wonderful for him that his lovely family was there to support him.
Wishing him the very best with Bel Ami.

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

Claire said...

Errrr. He's looking at the floor. :/

DreamerKind said...

What a day! Hope yours was good and that the weekend brings more of more for us all.

I enjoyed the Berlin Bel Ami premiere vids and pics and think Rob did an excellent job during the whole shebang. Am looking forward to seeing the movie myself.

Having read the book and watched so many shorts on vid of his performance, it seems to me that he caught the very essence of Duroy.

Christina Ricci is a stunning woman and I could hardly take my gaze off of that charming mole of hers which she displayed beautifully.

Enough of my opinions for tonight, as I am full of them and myself, as usual.

Fa, la, la, la!

Happy thoughts held in mind for Rose (enjoy Chicago this weekend), and for the Gang (Smitty, Gruff, Syd and Roselanders Delightful).

May be back later, if I can stop star watching. ;)

Birdie said...

Well, what a feast for the senses! Too long not seeing Rob out and about. It is a pleasure to see how he has grown since the beginning of all of this. I do hope this film is shown in my area and look forward to seeing it.
Have a lovely weekend everyone!

Freddie said...

Hi folks,

I’m just popping in to say hello.

Congratulations to Rob on what appeared to be a very successful day yesterday. With or without the hair, he is one incredibly handsome man. Once again, he showed his generosity taking the time to sign autographs and greet his fans, which speaks to the type of person he is. As others have said, his family can be extraordinarily proud of him.

I hope everyone is well and sane. Have a good weekend all, and I hope to catch up with you all soon.

Just a quickie to say hello and wish everyone a happy weekend.

Congrats to Rob!

((Hugs!))

So what if he is checking out boobs? Last time I checked Robert Pattinson was a straight man and straight men look at female parts that are in their faces.

I really feel sorry for any of these people that grow up and have a real relationship because their fantasy and then reality isn't going to mesh together and they are in for a HUGE surprise as to how real relationships and real life men function.*sheesh*

Super RN Gas Passer said...

MOTHERHIN..., I agree. Hope you are well.

Good Evening Everybody... I finally found a few moments To watch the extra scenes on the DVD for BD 1... How WONDERFUL it all is.. It really is fascinating what all is involved in film production not to mention the hardships they must all endure when the weather won't cooperate

Motherhin said...

I have yet to open my dvd but I'm hoping to get around to that soon and watch the extras. I love the cute things I've seen online so far.

Lilly said...

I saw people commenting the way he was looking at Christina, so I checked the videos myself.
I've to laugh at some of the comments I read in other sites saying that they looked intimate. I think they looked pretty unconfortable with each other, like two strangers meeting for the first time. I did notice him checking her out several times, I don't think he was looking at the floor, lol. I found a bit weird (and a bit comical) the way he kept staring at her, like trying to avoid it but not really being able to. That being said, I think people are blowing things way out of proportion, as always.

I wish people stopped with the good old justification "he's a man" though, I find that justification really lame. Don't women appreciate men too? I know I do, lol. It's natural on both sides. I guess our society is still very sexist when judging a male or a female behaviour. I agree with the comment that if it was Kristen caught doing it with a male costar, the reaction would be much worse. No doubt about that, and it sucks that the double standard is still so strong.
I think people are "criticizing" the context he's doing it - while being photographed at a public event - not the act itself, because they think it's disrespectful and embarrassing for Kristen. Honestly? I can relate to that, I would feel embarrassed (in "reality", most of us would, even knowing that "real life men" - AND us, "real life women" - function like that) BUT, I've a feeling Kristen doesn't give a damn about it, lol, she probably just rolls her eyes and move on. If this was a real issue in their relationship I imagine they would not be together anymore! So... I don't think this is such a big deal.

Man/Woman Body And Soul

One Thing Of Beauty

Marc Cohn:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7fVZ3SnUFmY

Gimme just one thing of beauty
To last me for all of my years
Gimme just one thing of beauty
And wash away all of my tears

I won't need to get no religion
When I throw all my burdens away
So gimme just one thing of beauty
And I'll stand at this alter and pray

Gimme one thing of beauty
I need one thing of beauty
Baby one thing of beauty

It's hard times down on the corner
Yeah, there's loneliness out on the street
I mean, everywhere you go there's someone you know
Who suffered some kind of defeat

But there's dreams being dreamed down in the doorway
Of all these places nobody goes

Yeah the ones that just so many [are] praising
They're the ones now that nobody knows

They just need one thing of beauty
Maybe one thing of beauty
They need one thing of beauty
(That's right...that's all they need)

You can keep every diamond and ruby
You can forget all those pharaohs and kings

Gimme just one thing of beauty
Take away all these material things

Gimme one thing of beauty
Since it all turns to ashes and dust

Gimme one thing of beauty
Yeah, the rest of you can do what you must

There's hard times
There's loneliness down on the street
But all we need is just one thing

When you go
Way down
You're looking for
One thing

Thank you/stepsofthemuseum

Yes, I'm still rolling in the deep today, this Sunday, a day I love.

@ladyevenstar22
You'll have your love, believe. I met my dearest at age 46 but he was not the first, yet he was the ONE! It may be today for you, dear. I was right about our dear Roselander "30" and she's now engaged.

@Lilly
Rationality is refreshing and so needed these days. :)

@Super
I've got the dvd but am too involved in doing paperwork organizing/discarding and the neverending story of unpacking my treasures to keep or lose, to give it my full attention.
Tonight, I thought the world was ending, since I heard lots of explosions and saw the white lights from them.
Here I am, alive, even after the Winter Carnival fireworks (which I hadn't heard of) did not blow us all up to smithereens. Happy Day!

@Rhonda
Thinking of you. :)

@Freddie
Got some new tunes or singers for me to play?

I Look To You

R Kelly (Live):
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tww-rhCMc7Q

As I lay me down
Heaven hear me now
I'm lost without a call
After giving it my all

Winter storms have come
And darken my sun
After all
That we've been through
Who on Earth
Can I turn to
I look to you
I look to you

After all
My strength is gone
In you I can move on
I look to you
I look to you

And when melodies
Are gone
In you
I hear a song
I look to you

Thank you/KellsTv1967

Expect The Unexpected

Some Sunday Morning

Clint Walker/?:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t_D_vn_xW7M&feature=related

Some Sunday morning is going to be,
Some Sunday morning
For someone and me.

Bells will be chiming
An old melody,
Specially for someone and me.

There'll be an organ playing,
Friends and relations will stare,
Say, can't you hear them saying,
"Gee what a peach of a pair?"

Some Sunday morning
We'll walk down the aisle,
She'll be so nervous
And I'll try to smile.

Things sure look rosy
For someone and me,
Some Sunday morning
You'll see.

Thank you/theodorebear2009

The Land Where The Good Songs Go

Sylvia McNair & Andre Previn:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MhhNTDXqPp0

On the other side of the moon,
Ever so far,
Beyond the last little star,
There’s a land, I know,
where the good songs go,
Where it’s always afternoon;
And snug in a haven of peace and rest,
Lie the dear old songs that we love the best.

It’s a land of flowers
And April showers
With sunshine in between,
With roses blowing and rivers flowing,
’Mid rushes growing green;
Where no one hurries
And no one worries
And life runs calm and slow:
And I wish some day I could find my way
To the land where the good songs go.

Dear old songs forgotten too soon—
They had their day,
And then we threw them away;
And without a sigh we would pass them by,
For some other, newer tune.
So off to a happier home they flew,
Where they’re always loved and they’re always new

Thank you/etudes6

Make A Mistake With Me

Brad Paisley:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qs0VMty7pic&feature=related

You overthink things
You say what if
We're not meant to be
Well you know what so what
Make a mistake with me

Nobody goes through this life
And does everything perfectly
We're all gonna fail
So you might as well
Make a mistake with me

Sometimes baby
When we take a chance
That has this much at stake
We look back and in hindsight
What seemed wrong
Looks more like right

So I say worst case
We'll be left with
Lots of good memories
This chance we have
Well it's worth that
So make a mistake with me

I'm tellin' you
The right thing to do
Is make a mistake
Make a mistake
Make a mistake with me

Thank you/smokestackuk

Annie said...

Good morning all

I think this Rob checking out Ricci talk is a non issue.
The poor man was probably afraid for the woman............(I know I was)
One swift turn in either direction, one lean forward and out those girls would pop! I was worried for her too..........She left nothing to the imagination but then again it seems as if the whole world was watching.
I was hoping those boobs were taped to that dress as tightly as Fort Knox is protected!

Rob probably saw more of Ms. Ricci's boobs two years ago in filming Bel Ami, than he did in that photocall...........from what we've seen the movie does have some very intimate scenes.

Talk about blowing something way, way out of proportion.

Have a great Sunday everyone.......I'm having a lazy one.

--------------------
I wish Rob much success with Bel Ami.

Claire said...

Annie - It is a non issue. He was looking at the floor in one pic, and at the flowers Holliday had, that just happened to appear out of nowhere lol.

Claire said...

The guy can't be in the vicinity of another female who isn't Kristen, without idiots making a meal out of it.

He did nothing wrong, yet you've got idiots trying to make drama where there is none. I feel sorry for him, tbh.

Some life :/

katy said...

I've seen ALL the vids from Berlin and didn't see Rob checking out nobody.

People bore me to death, always looking for negatives stuff, always seeing the bad in everything...*YAWN*.

Loving the buzzcut more a more on Rob, he looks amazingly gorgeous...well, he always looks amazing! It was a such delight to see Rob, I really missed his laugh and smile. Wishing him the very best with Bel Ami.


Happy Sunday Roseland,

Annie said...

Claire: I don't think he was looking at her boobs either.
The video makes it clear that he wasn't but there are drama llamas who if Rob were standing next to Miss Piggy, would make something out of it.

ali mac said...

Annie I would love to see Rob standing with Miss PIGGY, NOW THAT WOULD BE FUNNY :0)

Rhonda said...

Morning all, happy Sunday...

It's a cold, rainy one here. I'm waiting for it to change over to snow--at least that's prettier to look at :)

Super- I hope the computer class went well ;)

Melinda- I forgot to tell you this earlier, but I love the 'Book of Love'...it's such a beautiful song.

DK-((Hugs))

Have a great day everyone. Enjoy what's left of the weekend...

Annie said...

Ali Mac: I love Miss Piggy too! That would be priceless. :)

Rhonda: Are you off tomorrow?

Hi Katy. :)

Rhonda said...

Hi Annie- No, I have to work. What about you?

Hi Ali, Claire & Katy :)

Annie said...

Rhonda: I'm off.
I've dedicated this long weekend to being nothing but lazy! :)

Sorry, I posted the same comment twice..

Annie- that's great! Enjoy every moment. We don't often get the luxury of doing nothing ;)

Annie said...

Thanks Rhonda, so true. I will. :)

Enjoy your day at work tomorrow and I hope your weather changes for the better.

katy said...

Hi Annie, LOLING at your Miss Piggy comment.

Hi Rhonda, Claire, Ali

I hope you all are enjoying your day. Stay safe and be happy. :)

wania said...

DK dear friend, I'm here on the other side of the world... by bicycle through the beautiful temples of Angkor Wat, in the city of Siam Reap, Cambodia, here is a very special place, amazing even ... unlike anything I have ever seen ...
I got an internet ... slow ... bad connection ... but I'm happy because I read the lovely post from Rose ... I couldn't see the photos ... a pity ... but the message was worth ... I'm going to stay a little longer and then Bangkok and islands ... I miss here ... a big hug
Wania

Super RN Gas Passer said...

Good Morning ROSELANDERS...

WANIA...Travel safely...your trip sounds wonderful!

RHONDA...The computer class was just 3 hours so I was happy about that, however last night we went to one of Hubs friends birthday party in Columbia and on the way back home a deer ran out in front of us and my car is, once AGAIN....sigh...torn up:(

I was watching some more of BD this morning and I meant to pose a question as to whether the baby that the young Renee and Charlie are holding is possibly one of Kristen's pics/videos...Does anybody know?

It is a quiet rainy day here today...Have a good day everybody:)

ali mac said...

Wow Super, I'm glad it's just the car that's damaged and not you!

Hope everyone has had a great weekend so far xx

Super RN Gas Passer said...

ALI MAC....Thanks...Have a good evening:)

Dottie said...

Super, I'm sorry about your car but so glad you're ok. What bad luck!

Wania, Have a safe trip. Sounds incredible!

It's a cold and rainy Sunday here. I hope everyone is enjoying the remnants of the week end.

Annie said...

Super: So sorry about your car BUT so very happy you're ok.

olivia said...

Super - Thank goodness you and the hubs are safe and sound. (Sorry for the hassle you will go through getting the car repaired.)

Wania, your trip sounds amazing. Take care and tell us more upon your return home.

Beautiful sunshine here today, after days of intense rain and temps that keep going down low, then up, then down and up. It is not a wonder that so many at school are nursing awful colds that keep hanging on for weeks. Good news, Spring Break is just a few weeks away during the middle of March.

Season 2 of Downtown Abbey is coming to a close tonight! What a marvelous series. Pure enjoyment! Superb acting!

Hugs for y'all, Smitty, Gruff and Syd.
Life is good, just having to keep lots of Kleenex close at hand. : )

Rhonda said...

Super- I'm terribly sorry about your car. Luckily, you all were not injured.

Wania- it sounds beautiful. Have a great time, and safe travels.

Olivia- I'm addicted to Downton Abbey..absolutely love it! You take care, so as not to catch a cold too :)

angelica1 said...

Super - Sorry about your car, it's such a pain to sort out :(

Olivia and Rhonda - I hope you get the Downton Abbey Christmas special, it's great :)

Rhonda said...

Angelica- the episode tonight is the last of Season 2, and it's Christmas themed. Is there a special episode beyond this?

Super RN Gas Passer said...

Hi Dottie, Olivia,Rhonda,Annie and Angelica...

Thanks for the concern. I appreciate it

I have watched most of the first episode of season One. of Downton Abbey. I keep getting interrupted by RL but hope to dig in to it very soon on Netflix.

angelica1 said...

Rhonda - Yes,unless something really major happened at the end, there's an extra one still to see :)

Teeth said...

Finally got my hands on Breaking Dawn and all I can think is

I want me some Bel Ami!
Have a good one ladies.

Claire said...

Annie - It just pisses me off that whenever Rob or Kristen even dare talk to someone of the opposite sex people make a big deal out of it.

They need to grow the fuck up.

marley said...

Good evening or morning (depending on where you are in the world)!!!!

I hope everyone had a great weekend. I am all caught up here but have one or two more videos to watch on Robstenation still of the premier. I've been so busy this last week in half with various projects and nursing colds in my house.

I thought the pictures of Rob were gorgeous. I loved the long jacket on him. He looked a little bit more grown up if that is possible with Rob. I also thought it was awesome his whole family went with him for support!!!

So I found a new recipe that would be perfect for a fast and easy meal to make. I tried it tonight, and I know it was a keeper when, myself being a person who doesn't like coleslaw, actually liked it. I have also found few more if anyone needs a new one.

Hope everyone has a great start to a new week!!

olivia said...

Just a quick peek in....

The finale for season two of Downton Abbey last night was wonderful. Bravo! So much to comment about and of course praise everyone involved.

Too many favorite scenes.....must confess that the lead in to the visit , in the kitchen, and then the actual visit by Daisy to Michael's father, Mr. Mason, had me in tears. What a tender, kind man and Daisy finally begins to understand and feel a part of what love is. And of course, Lady Violet is the crown jewel of the series. Even she plants some seeds for thought on love in little Daisy's mind. Thank you, thank you to all involved in this beautiful series.
Looking forward to season 3 next year, and from what I have read, two weddings!

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

Birdie said...

Olivia,
I missed a few episodes, but bought the DVD. Next weekend is my DA Season 2 marathon. My sisters have all fallen in love with it. My mother was laid up after surgery and just finished Season 2. So much fun!

Annie said...

Olivia and Birdie: Loved every moment of Downton Abbey last night.
Looking forward to season three. :)
