Birds of a Feather

This post has nothing to do with Richard, aside from the fact that dorks seem to flock together.

Today is my wedding anniversary. My husband and I have been married for 19 years. Aww!

Tony and Kelly Wedding 001

 

we dated for 4 years before we were married, so that’s 23 years altogether. I was 21 and he was 22, young by today’s standards but we knew what we wanted; why wait just to appease society? that was my stance then, and although I better understand why some thought it was too young, I’d still do it all over again- it’s what was right for us.

Today on Facebook my husband wanted to mark the day & wish me a Happy Anniversary, because although we do still get each other a gift every year, we’ve done away with the fanfare. I love when he gets me flowers but it means more when I get them on days I’m not expecting them, rather than on days when greeting card companies say that I should.

Happy ‘it’s a Monday and it’s sunny’ Day!

 

his message to me was: “Happy Anniversary Kelly! I can’t believe you’ve put up with me for 19 years (but I’m glad that you did)”. sweet, right? so me, being the emotionally stunted person that I am, replied with: “right back atcha ❤ ” 

I included a heart!

he’s been teasing me about it all day. I felt bad, so I posted a sappy song to him in return with the dedication; “19 years (+4) and I still less than three you”. he thought it was a math problem.

Let’s Marvin Gaye

I haven’t done one of these in awhile but when I heard this song today, I automatically thought of Francis & Reba. “Marvin Gaye” by Charlie Puth, featuring Meghan Trainor (the link will take you to the song on YouTube, in a separate window, so you can play it in the background while viewing this post)

 

Marvin Gaye

 

Let’s Marvin Gaye and get it on
You got the healing that I want
Just like they say it in the song
Until the dawn, let’s Marvin Gaye and get it on

We got this king size to ourselves
Don’t have to share with no one else
Don’t keep your secrets to yourself
It’s kama sutra show and tell

Woah
There’s loving in your eyes
That pulls me closer
It’s so subtle
I’m in trouble
But I’d love to be in trouble with you

You got to give it up to me
I’m screaming mercy, mercy please
Just like they say it in the song
Until the dawn, let’s Marvin Gaye and get it on

And when you leave me all alone
I’m like a stray without a home
I’m like a dog without a bone
I just want you for my own
I got to have you babe

Woah
There’s loving in your eyes
That pulls me closer
It’s so subtle
I’m in trouble
But I’d rather be in trouble with you

He Found It

In my last post I talked about how picky I am with the background images I choose for my computer because my husband teases me about them if they’re fangirl related. You think I’d be used to the teasing by now- when I was an early teen, my favorite band was Def Leppard. My mother and brother thought it was great fun to sing the hit song “Love Bites” in an Elmer Fudd voice outside my bedroom door, in the background when I was talking on the telephone, when they dropped me off at friend’s houses… It got old real fast.

This past weekend I hooked my laptop up to the flatscreen tv so that my husband and I could watch The Crucible. Unbeknownst to us, our son was downloading an update to one of his games, slowing down the internet connection so that it kept buffering every two minutes.

do you think we might have overreacted?

He only had 20 minutes left to go, so my husband was switching it back to regular tv while we waited…and my computer desktop image showed up right there in his face. He jumped like he’d seen something really offensive and then whined, “ah, now he’s there too?!”

I told him that he could put an actress on his computer screen so that we’d be even. better yet, he could start a blog about her and I could help him! My mind went blank on actresses to suggest though. Jennifer Lawrence would be fun but he’s already got one clown to deal with, he doesn’t need two.

He suggested Sandra Bullock, who he despises. umm. you’re supposed to pick someone you like.

Lips Are Moving

The song “Lips Are Moving” has been playing a lot on the radio lately. It always reminds me of Lee Preston from Cold Feet. So maybe a picspam will help get it out of my head…or get it into yours…

 

Lips Are Moving by Meghan Trainor

(the link will take you to the song on Youtube, in a separate window,  so you can play it in the background while viewing this post)

If your lips are moving, if your lips are moving
If your lips are moving, then you’re lyin’, lyin’, lyin’, baby

coldfeet_038

If your lips are moving, if your lips are moving
If your lips are moving, then you’re lyin’, lyin’, lyin’

coldfeet_039

Boy, look at me in my face
Tell me that you’re not just about this bass
You really think I could be replaced
Nah, I come from outer space

coldfeet_035

And I’m a classy girl, I’mma hold it up
You’re full of something but it ain’t love
And what we got, straight overdue
Go find somebody new

coldfeet_036

You can buy me diamond earrings and deny-ny-ny, ny-ny-ny, deny-ny But I smell her on your collar so goodbye-bye-bye, bye-bye-bye

coldfeet_075

I know you lie
‘Cause your lips are moving
Tell me do you think I’m dumb?

coldfeet_062

I might be young, but I ain’t stupid
Talking around in circles with your tongue

coldfeet_089

I gave you bass, you gave me sweet talk
Saying how I’m your number one
But I know you lie
‘Cause your lips are moving
Baby, don’t you know I’m done

coldfeet_091

If your lips are moving, if your lips are moving
If your lips are moving, then you’re lyin’, lyin’, lyin’
If your lips are moving, if your lips are moving
If your lips are moving, then you’re lyin’, lyin’, lyin’

coldfeet_043

Hey, baby, don’t you bring them tears
‘Cause it’s too late, too late, baby

coldfeet_056

You only love me when you’re here
You’re so two-faced, two-faced, babe

coldfeet_092

You can buy me diamond earrings and deny-ny-ny, ny-ny-ny, deny-ny But I smell her on your collar so goodbye-bye-bye, bye-bye-bye

coldfeet_049

I know you lie
‘Cause your lips are moving
Tell me do you think I’m dumb?

coldfeet_053

I might be young, but I ain’t stupid
Talking around in circles with your tongue

I gave you bass, you gave me sweet talk
Saying how I’m your number one
But I know you lie
‘Cause your lips are moving
Baby, don’t you know I’m done

If your lips are moving, if your lips are moving
If your lips are moving, then you’re lyin’, lyin’, lyin’
If your lips are moving, if your lips are moving
If your lips are moving, then you’re lyin’, lyin’, lyin’

I know you lie
‘Cause your lips are moving
Tell me do you think I’m dumb?

Worth the Effort

Music & More Challenge

33.) character that reminds you of your Dad/Mom

I’ve stated that John Porter reminds me of my Father, so I’m going to go the female route with this one and answer: Carol Bolton reminds me of my Mother.

Mom’s reaction to me painting the room red would have differed from Carol’s. greatly.

Unlike others, I do have a favorable impression of Carol. Who we think is best for John comes from our own desires and not necessarily what he wants or needs himself. so I think a lot of the negative judgements towards Carol are biased in this regard.

I will love him and squeeze him and call him...Ralph
I will love him and squeeze him and call him Ralph

My mom shares some personality traits with Carol and she’s also had to fight against the negative judgements of others. Nothing as dire as Carol’s past has plagued my Mom but there are reasons why she reacts the way that she does.

In both cases, I see it as an unconscious defense mechanism for them: whoever is able to get past the protective walls, is someone who isn’t going to give up and walk away. whoever gets past the walls, already knows she’s worth the effort.

music question: a song that reminds you of your Mom/Dad

Taylor Swift’s “The Best Day”

because of this:

 

I’m thirteen now and don’t know how my friends could be so mean

I come home crying and you hold me tight and grab the keys

And we drive and drive until we’ve found a town far enough away

And we talk and window shop until I’ve forgotten all their names

 

sparkhouse-11

we did this often during my teenage years. I needed to know that I was worth the effort too.
