Friends Forever

Ok. So it’s not all over yet; the aforementioned festival that is- damn good one too. In fact, right now it’s very late my time (beer o‘clock) and I should’ve been in my bed tucked up with my teddy soooo long ago. But I’m not. Instead I’m typing a post that I know tomorrow I’m gonna feel so embarrassed about I’ll be tempted to delete, but I’m not allowed to. This guy says so. (The stuff of memories you say? How ironic is that?!) . Anyway, he’s a good friend and I hate friends’ disapproval. But that’s nothing to do with what I came on here to say. I came on here to be soppy! (Though I am in the mood to say that I LOVE my friends! All of you. Each and every one gets a virtual kiss right now.)

Anyway, back to the intended soppiness. As if my very public declaration of my love for my friends wasn’t enough. You know that you’re all my friends too? I hope so. I  love you guys! Though again, that’s not what I meant to ramble about.  Given half the chance I’d be here from now till tomorrow proclaiming all your loveliness. What an amazing, inspiring, talented bunch you all are. But, no, stop. Concentrate. What was I saying? Ah, that’s right- humble blogworld community, please excuse me if I am distracted slightly by this sexy beast:

Yes, I know you can’t seem him really here. That’s him gazing on the Pantheon’s mighty splendour. (A sexy beast in itself.) I do have some very lovely shots of him. Even from that very seat, the previous moment. But he wouldn’t want me posting them here. He’s allergic to the internet, seeing it as one mechanism in the machine that is this almost neo-Orwellian futurescape, where the Rapture is welcome and The Man is everyone. Only he’s smarter than that. My man is smarter than everyone. (I only say that sarcastically sometimes.)  “I’ll have no part of it!”, he declares regularly, shaking a fist.

Ok, maybe he’s not quite that dramatic. I will say this about him though, he sees the world through the most crystal clear glasses; and I love his glasses. He is my best friend and my partner for all the worlds that ever were. Or will be.

He’s my fiance and instead of a ring he gave me the tiniest, most beautiful little star you’ve ever seen. That’s the soppiness I came here to share, and there you have it. I love my man and he loves me.  In fact, he’s the only thing I love more than a cup of  tea!

As one who is conscious of being neither a friend* to anyone nor in any way lovable^, may I just say...

I think this is your best post ever. It got through the defences.

* This isn't necessarily true - depends on definition.

First of all, how's your head feeling right now? Seeing the world through a pair of beer goggles where we?!
All kidding aside, this was sweet. And tender. And completely darling. I hope you aren't embarrassed today. I though this was lovely. Have a great day and don't clutch the aspirin bottle too tightly.

Ah a declaration of love! How wonderful. It doesn't matter if beer goggles were involved or if embarrassment ensues. Love is where it's at and if it can find a way to trickle in our lives then that's all the better.
Hope you don't have too poorly a head today though! x x

Aw, thanks you three. Your lovely sweet comments are going some way towards alleviating the shame I'm presently feeling. Alcohol+blogging=bad! I thought I could maybe sneak in here and take it down before anyone noticed, but I've been slow off the mark today. But thanks again, you have made me feel a little less embarrassed. Oh, and on the upside, my head is completely fine today!
Thanks again folks!

So glad you're not suffering after all the beer! =D

This is a sweet post & you made me smile. ^-^

You're lucky to have such a wonderful man & he's certainly lucky to have YOU! Virtual hugs & kisses back. ^-^

Hope you're having an awesome day!

Róisín said...

Thanks Annalee :) Do you know, I haven't actually been able to bring myself to reread it? I said I wouldn't take it down and I know if I read it again that's exactly what I'll do! But it makes me feel better to know you enjoyed it. Thanks again missus. Hope you're having an awesome day too!

For a man who hates the internet, he fucking loves the online poker. Ah only kidding. Give my best to the man who shall remain nameless. and my very best to you too, Roisin. I'll be stopping by here a lot more often now

D.Suplicki said...

If this is as embarrassing as you get while having a few too many, I'd certainly agree to have a few too many with you!

Beer goggles or not, that is love. Simple, wonderful love. :)

JJ Beazley said...

Actually, Roisin, I bet you're the most delightful company when you've had one or two. Or maybe you are anyway. I think I'm digging a hole here.

Róisín said...

I'm glad I didn't delete this post, all your comments have been so lovely! Oh, and Danni, I haven't forgotten about our journaling adventure. Page two has been finished for some time now I just haven't got round to putting it up yet!

Róisín said...

Paul, I forgot to say, your identity is puzzling me a bit. I think I know which Paul you are (it's only one of a couple of choices really) but I'm not sure entirely. Sorry, I know I know you but I just want to be sure I'm talking to the right person!
