WALKING ON THE BEACH
Good Morning sweet shipsters. We have made it through another day and night of Mr. Toads Wild Ride!! Amazingly enough….I am very calm again this morning. The thing about getting sucker punched ( weddings anyone?), is that you learn to guard yourself from future punches, and I am slowly becoming a Muay Thai expert without getting off my couch!!
Let’s talk about Cait, and the Oscar Wilde awards. This was another wonderful thing for Cait, and her recognition is a pleasure to watch. And, the fact that JJ Abrams presented her award touched me very much because he gave her the first real opportunity as an actress, and as she said herself…she felt she came full circle. And let’s not forget, he is a high powered mover and shaker in the industry, so what an honor for our Cait!!! It has not escaped my notice that Cait is really being noticed now, and to be honored with such esteemed company is impressive, at least to me.
I thought she looked beautiful and happy, and slightly overwhelmed. To be honored for your work while acknowledging your Irish heritage must have been special for her. I could not be more proud to be her fan, and she is so deserving of the continued accolades that are thrown her way. And, her team is doing one hell of a job, so kudos to them!! And yes, that includes Tony. If nothing else, his support of her without ever trying to overshadow her has become a little endearing to me, and she is lucky to have a friend and quiet supporter like him.
As for Sam, and the public lack of acknowledgement from the OL team….who the hell knows what is up with that! Since I am not privy to what goes on behind the scenes, it does seem very strange. And, who’s to say that they did not, or have not done something for her outside of this event. If they haven’t, then shame on them. She embodies the role of Claire so well that this show simply could not survive without her. And, they should count their lucky stars ( no pun intended), that she is part of OL.
As for the personal aspect of Sam….that is a conundrum isn’t it?!?. Was he there….looks like a no. Should he have been there….probably yes. Why wasn’t he there…it was not his night, and this wasn’t about him. And to be 100% honest, I didn’t expect to see him there. What IS most difficult for me to wrap my head around is his continued silence to Cait. It is very glaring isn’t it?? And, look at his SM over the past few weeks….nothing on anything when you really look at it. The raining cats pics were the only things that seemed to capture his attention, and NOTHING at all on OL, Cait, other fine and friendly banter ( not even with Cree), and let’s say it….the prom shot is not even posted on his IG. My take on all of this….since he “cannot” post about Cait, or with Cait he is not posting at all. It is his version of f*uck you to whomever shut them down. And make no mistake….someone shut them down….I am convinced of it more than ever. The only way to continue this farce is to keep Sam and Cait away from each other because as @cb4tb said after the Bafta’s…..Sam can’t sell it. And quite frankly, neither can Cait when they are together, either virtually, or personally.
So, I am walking on the beach watching the sunrise this morning, and the sun will rise. I do not understand this real life version of the “20 year seperation” we are seeing, but something is off, and it is not Sam and Cait. Cree’s post said it all. It will be very interesting to see them at ECCC, and since this is a non-OL event, their interaction will be front and center. I said last weekend that I was tossed from the ship. But make no mistake, I still have my cabin, complete with balcony and a view. I am just enjoying some beach time, and my walk on the sand just feels good on my feet.
Shipping on sweet shipsters, and let’s not create our own drama. Believe me, it is being written and played out right before our eyes, so I plan to sit back and try to figure out which idiot(s) are doing this, and why. Feels like S2!!
Happy Friday sweet shipsters, and look for the sun…it is still there somewhere!😎🤗😍
