me in my new sun hat

5

My friend finished a couple of my pillows already and I love them!!! The pool is super refreshing and amazing on these hot June afternoons! My new sun hat is open on top so I can have a bun or ponytail–👍🏻👍🏻!! And, summertime fruit is incredible!! Those peaches were so sweet and juicy! Taking a Monday off is never a bad idea!

No one tagged me to share five happy things…but I wanted to because it’s been a lovely day. 😁

“My hat is Nyulica Derek, sunglasses RayBan, jacket Guess, top Sun Milano (Italian brand from ages ago), choker Topshop, belt Hermes, trousers ZARA, shoes Dr. Martens, bag Sophie Hulme. I’m inspired by watching all fashionable and outstanding people in NYC. It’s funny that I used to like colors but since I came to NY, I feel like I always wear something black. This city has made me realize the depth of the color black.”

making a name for myself

I am the statue in the middle of
my own town square
a monument to nothing much
I spend my days
intimidating squirrels and
attempting to decipher the
inscription on the plaque
next to my feet
but almost all the words
have been obscured
by years of pigeon shit

so all this time I’ve been
whatever you believed I was
and I am never sure
exactly what that is
it must be what it is
except for when it’s not
and then it’s not quite what
it used to be
so no one’s sure of what
it has turned into, but
the nice thing is
the pigeons just don’t care

still, lately I’ve been thinking that
I might sneak over to the library
one of these cloudy nights
I could research the possibilities
and maybe even settle on
an answer that will suit me or
at least be something I could hang
my hat on, if I ever get a hat

my hope is that I will turn out to be
less like the squirrels and
the passers-by,
more like those pigeons, who
you may recall
prefer to sit above it all
and keep an eye on things
without a thought to what
they are supposed to be and do

and then I might just make myself
a brand new plaque
before I get back on my pedestal
to wait until the sun
decides to shine

#239~ Pokemon- Professor Kukui

Since my team skull post was pretty popular, and I’m still loving the new region, I decided to make Professor Kukui! I know his skin tone is a little tanner (I’m too lazy to tan), so if you want me to make a tanner version, just tell me!

Hat: White Team Hat
Accessory: Sporty Shades
Shoes: Green Buckle Shoes

The heart knows a hundred thousand ways to speak

It was amazing to be in Dubai again. This time we decided to go to the desert to ride camels. I think the best time to go is during the sunset hours, especially when the sun casts shadows through the sand. Amazing time for photographs as well! 

That day I decided to wear all RED! Only because I wanted a change. I’m always wearing white or blue but this time I wanted to step out of my comfort zone and try to be bold! Even though I feel my best when I am wearing neutral colors, I loved the way this red made me feel too!

Try new colors and feel confident in any thing your wear!

Been a while since I’ve gone out. I recently got my license so I took an opportunity to visit a much nicer neighborhood. I was actually kind of afraid to go out. It had been so long and my social anxiety had been kicking up a lot so I almost didn’t even walk out the door. It didn’t make it better that I was going alone. But I managed to gather what little courage I had to take a chance. Grabbed a little lunch and found a quiet place to sit where I could draw. Eventually I got a little bit more confident and decided to do some good old wandering. I happened upon a rather talented man playing a flute on the corner. I have a policy to do something nice for someone each time I go out. So I thought it would be kind to offer him a little tip and a piece of sugar free gum for later. He politely accepted thanking me kindly. As I started to wander off, he stopped me, opened up his flute case, and produced a blueberry sucker and offered it to me saying, “It matches your lovely hat.” This little compliment and offering of gratitude pulled me out of everything that had been bothering me. Just a small act of kindness from a stranger that made the world seem better. I thanked him jovially and proceeded to skip away to the nearest comic book store.
Trying out a new mascara. In love with it already. Also, sun has been bringing out my freckles a lot. Got a really cute new keychain and a new copy of Nightwing. Cool beans. Also, legs. Just legs. ^ 3^
Be nice to someone. They might need it. And you might need it too. 💜

Shirt by  THE N A K E D || C LO T H

Since the year turned a few things have changed, first off, i am back to wearing my sneakers almost every day of the weekend, i reckoned my usual loafer wearing routine needed a break. In other news, the brim reaper is back, this new hat refuses to unglue itself from my head. I have always been a fan of hats but i tend to get bored quickly, this time around i am looking to rotate them enough and still have an excuse to show off my barber’s skills somewhere in the middle. Wish me luck

em is a man man
ADIRA
em is a man man

in the summer with a sunburn and the bedroom windows shut

in the suburb where your badge is a buzzcut

getting high down by the racetrack where the neighborhood boys run

with their burning backs all freckled in the sun

lets draw our map and run

when the moon bleeds, turns the sky red, you can catch me on the grass

with my hair cut off, wearing a new hat

if they catch you hopping fences chasing ducks and trapping bees

ill find you in the kingdom that we lead

cuz my posture sucks and your eyes still sting

but if youre the queen baby im the king

because youre like glowing stars on a ceiling

so promise me this one unspoken thing

It Takes Two

*SMUT WARNING* 

“So any baby news?” Gemma’s eyes were hidden behind her sunglasses, her margarita in her hand. You hadn’t seen her for a few weeks and you’d both decided it’d be a good idea to grab some lunch together.

“Has your brother been nagging you to convince me?” You adjusted the sun hat you’d recently bought, it’s brim hanging over your eyes to give you shade. You watched as she grinned, taking another sip of her drink.

“He sure has,” she laughed. “But hey, I’m not complaining. I can’t wait for you to pop out my niece or nephew.” She leaned back in her chair as you laughed, shaking your head.

Harry had been asking for a while and he really wanted to try for a baby now that you were both settled into the new home you’d recently bought. Not only was he asking you, but he began to ask others to ask you because honestly, he wanted to know the real reason why you weren’t ready.

You’d been married for a little over a year now and all he’d wanted was to get started on a baby; he just couldn’t wait to become a father to a little boy or girl although he always snuck in that he wanted a girl.

“Hey, tell me what’s on your mind,” she leaned in closer, pushing her sunglasses into her hair. “You always used to talk about having kids. Did he do something?”

You quickly shook your head, looking down to pick at the nothings on your sundress. “No, no. I just…I don’t know. I’m really nervous,” you sighed softly.

“What’re you nervous about, sweetheart?” She always knew when something was up and she’d pry it out of you no matter what it took.

“I feel like he’s going to be such an amazing father and I won’t live up to his expectations,” you bit down on your nail to fight back the tears threatening to spring to life. “I don’t want him to be disappointed.”

“Oh my gosh,” she quickly scooted her chair around next to yours and wrapped her arms around you. “There’s no way Harry would ever be disappointed in you. God, I remember the day he met you; he just wouldn’t shut up. And when he came back for the movie and saw you again, he told me he had to make you his. He’s so in love with you, darling. He became the happiest I’ve ever seen him when he slipped that ring on your finger and made you his wife. And I can’t even begin to imagine how ecstatic he’s going to be when you tell him you’re pregnant. Please take my word for it when I tell you he’s waiting for the day you tell him he’s going to be a daddy and how much he loves you.”

You felt the tears spring to life and you blinked rapidly to fight them off. She pressed her head to your shoulder and kept her arms wrapped around you.

“You’re right,” you croaked, clearing your throat and dabbing at your eyes. “I guess I’m going to talk to him when I get home. You know, yesterday I took my last pill. I ran out,” you looked back up at her and took a breath.

“That could be a sign, my love.  But of course if you’re not ready, just know he knows that and he doesn’t want you to do anything you don’t want to.” You nodded, taking in a breath and pulling out your wallet.

“No, I’ve got it today. You just get on home and talk to that weirdo I call my brother,” she grinned, nudging you softly before she paid for the bill.

“Thanks, Gem. Really, you’re amazing.” You watched as she playfully flipped her hair and slid her sunglasses back on.

“Oh, stop it,” she laughed as you reached your car. You turned to her, opening your arms before enveloping her in a tight hug.

“Love you, Gemma.”

“Love you too, sweetheart. If you need anything, I’m only a phone call away.”

**

“Harry? Babe, I’m home.” You let the door click back into place before dropping your keys into the bowl in the foyer.

“Upstairs!”  His voice echoed down the stairs and you dropped your bag by the door before you made your way up the steps, skipping every other one. You peeked in to find him with a towel around his waist and another draped over his head. You stifled a laugh and crept in, leaning against the wall to kick your shoes off. He heard and his eyes shot up at you, a grin forming on his face.

“Hi, baby,” he gave his hair a quick ruffle with the towel and dropped it to a pile in front of his dresser. “How was lunch? And more importantly, how creepy was Gemma being?”

You let a laugh out and you turned so he could unzip your sundress, allowing it to fall past your shoulder and to the floor. “Harry, be nice. Lunch was great, we really had a great time.”

“You were checking out guys as they passed, weren’t you?” You watched as his eyes danced along your lingerie clad body with a smirk on his face. Smacking his arm softly, you laughed once more before leaning up on your toes to kiss him.

“You know I only have eyes for you,” your arms draped over his shoulders as his own pulled you into his chest. He grinned, leaning down to press a kiss to the tip of your nose.

“Phew, thank goodness. I didn’t want to have to punish you if you were checking out any other guy,” his hands gave your backside a soft squeeze and the playfulness came to life in his bright eyes as he heard you squeal.

“Punish me, hm? You and I both know you wouldn’t dare,” you leaned up on your toes to meet his gaze and watched as his eyebrows shot up.

“Baby, when you’re standing in front of me in just your underwear and only a towel around my waist, there’s no hesitation,” he pulled you closer, your chest pressed to his as his grip tightened. You let out a shaky breath, feeling him grow against your belly and you took your bottom lip between your teeth.

“Don’t do that,” he growled, his eyes suddenly dark as his fingers swiftly unhooked your bra. You felt the blush creep to your cheeks as he pulled them down your arms before quickly pulling you back against his chest.

“Do what?”

You knew exactly what he was talking about, you know exactly how much he got turned on when you bit your lip; whether you knew it or not. The closer he pressed you to him, the more you could feel him grow beneath the towel. You let your eyes drift close for a second before you found yourself draped over his shoulder.

“You know exactly what you’re doing, missus,” he set you down on your back before climbing on top of you, discarding the towel to the side of the bed. “And you’re so going to pay for it.”

“Harry,” you breathed out as his thumb ran along your bottom lip. His eyes crept up your face until he’d found your eyes, his hand reaching down to interlock with yours. “I uh, I’m ready.”

You watched as his brows furrowed for a second before it registered and his orbs shined with a bright shade of green, a smile spreading on his face. He pulled your hand up to his lips, placing a soft kiss through the smile he kept on.

“Are you sure?” The last thing he wanted was for him to pressure you into something you weren’t ready to take on, but he felt like he couldn’t wait anymore. All he wanted was to start a family so he could hold the life you’d both created in his arms and cradle his baby to sleep at night. He wanted to be a father.

“I’m sure,” you buried your free hand into the damp curls at the nape of his neck and shot him a soft smile. “I took my last pill yesterday. Gem said it’s a sign and I…I’m ready, Harry. There’s nothing I want more than to start a family with you.”

He felt his heart flutter in his chest and he closed his eyes, letting the words sink in for a moment. “So you…you want to start tonight?”

“I don’t see why we can’t start right now,” you whispered, watching as his eyes shot back open and met yours. You purposely took your lip between your teeth once more, releasing your hand from his hair and running it down his bare chest.

“Damn it, you’re driving me mad,” he breathed out, his lips falling to yours as he shifted his weight on to his elbows. Your arms came to wrap around his neck as you felt his hands roam your naked torso. He moved his lips down across your jaw and down to your neck, stopping to suck on your most sensitive spot.

“H-Harry, you’re going to leave a mark,” you managed to get out but you tilted your head to give him access anyway.

“Good,” he growled. “Everyone’ll know you’re mine and only mine.” Once he was sure he’d leave a love bite, he continued his journey down your chest, leaning over to pepper each breast with kisses, satisfied with the arch of your back he’d received. His fingers were swift in yanking the barely there panties in anticipation. Your eyes shut tight when you felt him continue, dropping a kiss to your navel and over the spot you ached for him.

“Jeez, no teasing, Harry,” you groaned, your fingers beginning to grip the sheets. He laughed, his minty breath breezing over the sensitive nub and chills were sent up and down your body. His lips grazed your slit before he moved to the side, peppering your inner thigh with kisses and switching to the other. You let another groan out as you began to grow impatient.

“That’s what you get for teasing me,” he rasped out and before you could reply, his tongue had found your aching core. You shrieked, quickly arching your back in response and tangling your fingers in his curls. The moans and gasps fell out quicker than you’d wanted them to and they only grew louder as he quickened his pace.

You arched and squirmed, his hands holding you down firmly in place as his tongue continued its relentless assault. Once you’d reached your high, his name falling from your lips and the only thing he could hear was your ragged breathing, he pulled his face away licking his lips.

“Better and better each time,” his voice was hoarse and you opened your eyes to be met with his sly smirk. You took the opportunity to flip him over, his eyes wide in excitement.

“And it’s only going to get better, baby,” you mimicked his movements, pecking his lips before traveling down his neck to suck on a spot you knew would be visible the next day. Your lips trailed down his chest, showing love to each and every one on his tattoos before gliding your tongue along his torso.

“Shit,” he whispered, his neck craned to watch you intently. When you pressed a kiss to his swollen tip, he groaned and dropped his head back as you began to stroke him a few times. “You tease.”

“Payback,” you smirked before taking him into your mouth, satisfied as his head was thrown back in ecstasy. You continued to pump as your lips roamed each and every inch, feeling him begin to tense beneath you.

“B-Baby, stop,” his voice was strained and you ignored his pleas. When he couldn’t take it any longer, he grasped your head and pulled you back up. Pinning you down beside him, he climbed over you and pressed his lips to yours.

“Are you okay? You’re ready? I have cond-“ You pulled him down to your lips once more to cut him off, your hands grazing down his chest.

“You’re awfully chatty today,” you breathed out. “Let’s make a baby.”

“I love you,” you felt him align himself and you cupped his face in your hands, his curls already sticking to his forehead.

“I love you.” He didn’t waste any time before he buried himself deep inside of you, a guttural moan leaving his lips. With a soft cry, you buried your face into his neck as he thrust into you at a steady pace. “Faster, please, Harry.”

He groaned against your ear before he obliged, his hips moving at a faster rhythm. You didn’t last much longer when he reached down between the two of you, his fingers giving the sensitive nub of nerves a steady rub. “Let go, baby,” he managed to let out and before he knew it, he was watching you come undone beneath his body. The moans falling from your lips along with his name were enough to send him over the edge, his face burying into your neck as he released into you.

In the quiet bedroom, the only noise was coming from the frayed breaths coming from the two of you. He collapsed on top of you, his head on your chest as you ran your fingers through his hair.

“You think we did it?” He mumbled, his eyes closed as he began to doze off. You let a breath, closing your eyes as well.

“I really hope so, Harry.” You felt his lips press a kiss to your ribcage, his thumb kneading small circles into your hip.

“Thank you for this, baby,” he leaned up and laid his head on the pillow beside you. “I love you.”

You smiled, cuddling into his and pressing your head to his chest.

“I love you too, Harry.”

**

“I don’t know man. It’s been over a week and she’s afraid to take any tests,” he sighed, leaning against the wall of the studio. It was true; it had been over a week since you told him you were ready. He’d been trying to convince you to take a test but you refused, reassuring him that your body would know on its own.

“Why?” His Irish mate questioned, his brows furrowed. Harry wish he knew the answer and he ran his hand over his face. All he wanted was for you to confirm his hopes and he felt like he was on the edge every time he even glanced at your flat stomach.

“Wish I knew, Niall,” he sighed and reached in his jeans to grab his keys. “I should head home. She told me she was making dinner,” he gave each one of his band mates a fist pound before heading out through the stormy weather into his car.

**

“I swear, Gem, there’s a pink plus in front of me,” you couldn’t believe it either as you stared down at the positive pregnancy test in your shaking hands.

“And you’re sure it means positive?!” She asked once more, her voice getting higher and higher over the phone.

“It doesn’t get clearer than this, darling,” you breathed out and you let a giggle out as you heard her squeal like a young girl. “How…How do I tell him?”

“Show it to him! Jump on him! Do something! Call me when he finds out!” You couldn’t help but let out a laugh when you heard her shout, “I’m going to be an aunt!”

To be honest, you had no idea how you were going to break the news to Harry. Of course you were excited, but you couldn’t help being nervous. You ran your hand over your face and through your hair before setting the test down on the bathroom counter. You looked into the mirror and lifted your shirt up, your hand placed on the belly that wasn’t there.

This was it. If everything went well, and you prayed to God that it did, in nine months you were going to become a mother. Harry was going to be a father. The thought of it had your heart fluttering and you couldn’t stop the smile forming on your face as you imagined his reaction. But then again, what if you didn’t live up to his expectations? What if you couldn’t be the mother he wanted for his children? You tried to push the thoughts out of your head and you splashed your face with a handful of cold water, a breath escaping your lips.

“A baby,” you smiled and glanced down once more at the pregnancy test before a clap of thunder made you jump. You placed your hand over your chest and when you heard the front door shut, you felt your pulse race.

“I’m home, my love!” He called out and you let out another breath before walking out of the bedroom and towards the stairs.

“Hey, babe,” you smiled and made your way down the stairs, standing on the last step to be matched with his height. He wrapped his arms around your waist and pulled you down, towering over you as he leaned down to press his lips to yours.

“I missed you,” he whispered against your lips and you smiled, pecking his lips once more as he held you close.

“I missed you too. How was your day?” You watched as he rolled his eyes and pressed his forehead against yours.

“Boring,” he mumbled. He pressed a kiss to your nose before pulling back and reaching for his bag on the floor. “So I stopped by the pharmacy on my way home and I bought a couple of tests I thought you could try out,” his voice was small as he began to pull out the plastic bag.

You couldn’t put it off any longer, you knew you had to tell him. Right now. You watched as he pulled out several different boxes of pregnancy tests and you couldn’t help but stifle a laugh.

“Harry, I don’t need any of those,” you looked at him, your voice shakier than you’d hoped. You watched as he shot his head back up at you, his brows furrowing.

“What? Why?” He waited a few seconds in silence before you watched his face fall. “You…You got your period, didn’t you?”

You heart sank and you quickly shook your head, leaning up to brush the crease in his eyebrow. “Harry, look at me,” you tilted his head up to meet your gaze.

“I know, I know. We could always try again,” he sighed. “But I thought we finally did it last week.”

“Harry, baby, listen.” You placed your finger over his lips and he focused on you, his eyes falling to your lips. “I…I took a test earlier,” you didn’t miss the gleam in his eyes. “It came back positive.”

He suddenly dropped the boxes in his hands and they flew to his mouth, his eyes widening. “A-Are you serious?”

You let out a soft laugh, nodding your head as you reached up to push his curls out of his eyes. “Follow me,” you took his hand in yours and led him up the stairs into the bedroom bathroom, moving to the side so he could examine the test in his shaky fingers.

“Oh my God,” he whispered, turning his head to you and smiling like he had on your wedding day. “We…We did it,” he choked out.

“We did, my love. We’re going to have a baby.” Before you knew it, you were scooped into his arms and he pressed a long kiss to your lips. You pulled away softly, brushing your thumb over his now red mouth. He must’ve caught the uneasiness in your voice and he settled you down on the counter, his fingers pushing back a stray hair behind your ear.

“What’s going on in that pretty little head?” You let your gaze fall to your fingers in your lap and you sighed.

“I’m scared, Harry. I-I mean what if I can’t do it and I’m not good enou-“

His lips quickly shut you up and he pulled back, his face more serious than ever. “I never ever want to hear those words come out of your mouth again. You are going to the greatest mother ever. You want to know why? Because you are the most incredible wife and I’ve seen you around kids, around Lux. You know she absolutely adores you and I can only imagine what you’re going to be like with our kids. You are going to be amazing, words can’t even describe it. I know you’re scared, baby, and that’s okay. But you’re going to be just fine, I promise you. I love you so much. Thank you for this,” he leaned in to peck your lips before crouching down to press a kiss to your stomach.

The words he’d just said sprung tears to your eyes and you were quick to dab them away. He noticed, cupping your face in his hands and grinning.

“Happy tears?” He asked, his eyes soft as his thumbs wiped away your tears. You let out a chuckle and nodded, looking up at him.

“I love you, Harry. More than you can imagine,” you kissed his lips before resting your head on his chest. His fingers raked up and down your back soothingly and he pressed a kiss to the top of your head.

“I love you too, baby. We better start getting that nursery ready, huh?” 

There you have it, darlings! Thank you to the anon who requested this, I hope you as well as everyone else enjoy! I incorporated a bit of smut to spice it up a bit since I don’t do it often. Don’t forget to drop by my ask for some feedback or anything else on your mind! Love you, dolls.

DAY 2399

The Oberoi Grand, Kolkata      Nov 9/10,  2014      Sun/Mon  12:19 am

Of white tigers .. who I believed had a link with the white tigers of Rewa, a royal principality in years gone by, when the Raja of Rewa mated and produced the white tiger .. !!

I may be wrong though ..

Of crowned cranes, with their hooded looks .. and peculiar hair styles ..

Of CATS, of course and coloured hat ..

Of the beauty of the setting sun against the new bridge across the river Hoogly, other than the Howrah Bridge ..

Of the stop over at the ‘kachori and jalebi’ eatery and all those that came to watch me eat it .. after an incognito ride through the morning streets  ..

Of meeting up with my old colleagues at Blacker’s and colleagues during the time when I worked here from 1962 to 1968 or a bit more .. they have aged along with me, but their hearts and their connect has remained the same ..

And tomorrow is the inauguration of the Kolkata International Film Festival and the family comes in to join me, along with many others .. and then later by the 14th an ISL football game of the 'our’ team ChennaiyinFC with the local team Atletico de Kolkata …

Time is racing by … the work continues unabated, and I need to deliver on various fronts - work, script, visits, meetings, … and that private unknown ride perhaps in the middle of the night to all those places which were our haunts .. to stand in front of them and recollect the time and place and deed .. to bring back the old , to bring back the adventure and compassion .. to simply stand silently and allow time to go by ..

I look at the stack of books that stare before me in complaint ..“ brought us here to be referred to, but no .. you have not even given us another glance ..”

Institutions and others send in their notes and letters of invitation, to various social generous programmes .. I cannot possibly attend to them, keeping in mind my schedule .. so I hope they shall understand .. it is difficult to respond to them .. I run a shoot schedule, not my office to be able to give response .. so .. sorry ..

O ! Dear .. I need to do so much now … but am sleep dragged .. was up from 5, and its 7 tomorrow ..

Good night and love …

Meryl and Maks Daily recap August 10th,2014

What a glorious day on the ship.  You know dragonturgy once described our ship as “old ironside” which gave me a mental image of sailing ship made of metal with a huge purple dragon at the bow, ready to defend.  There have been times of rough seas in the past, but today it is smooth sailing.  today I’m imagining more of a cruise ship, lots of deck chairs.  Everybody soaking up the sun and sipping fruity drinks with little umbrellas.  (We’re all wearing the obligatory Meryl sun hats, sorry!)  We occasionally open our eyes to glance over at our nearest deck mate, give a satisfied smile, then go back to enjoying the breeze.

Today’s sailing really picked up speed when my new hero, maksylmyheart obtained for us the podcast of yesterday’s radio interview with Warren What’s-His-Name (sorry Warren).  The interview began with the audio of the Meryl and Maks’ winning moment on DWTS.  Warren asked what Maks was thinking in that moment.  He said he was sure Derek and Amy would win and he was trying to think of what to say to his mom and what to say to not look like a sore loser.   Warren said he heard Maks was retiring now.  Maks said that In his heart, he knew the moment they won that he wouldn’t be back.  "This season was so special…Amazing, storybook ending to this chapter of my life".  He said it could not have been a better ending.  He did give props to Amy earlier and at this point saying that if she had won she would have deserved it (He didn’t mention anything about Derek).

Warren then said, “You could write a book!”  Maks said, “I’ll leave the book writing to my castmates for now”, he felt like he hadn’t done enough in his life yet to “earn the right” to write a book. (Maybe a little shade to Derek). They discussed some of his previous partners.  Max spoke very highly of Erin, he said, “I can proudly say we are great friend”. 

They talked about the mall event, Maks said he “says yes to all these things now” to meet his fans. (Sure Maks, just in MI to meet fans, ok).  He said It was lovely to meet al the people who voted for Meryl and him.  He said he didn’t realize how much support he actually had and he was glad to know now.

At this point Warren says, “Good talking to you” and you think the interview is over, but WAIT!  Warren goes on to say, “it was a special relationship that you had with Meryl Davis, it almost looked like at times and in rehearsals and the way they edited those shots that you were having a romantic relationship together as well.”  Maks replies “We, we, we’re, we’re close and, uh, you know, and uh it was special, and it was, you know, it was what it was, and whatever it was it was ours, and you know, we’ve given everything that we needed to to the public, the rest is, you know, the rest is ours and I love it. We’re going to keep it that way.”   (I am not embellishing that at all, he really did stumble over his words that much.) “But, uh, I’m actually having breakfast with Meryl Davis as we speak.”

Warren then say, “Good for you!  No, uh, proposals or anything like that?” To which Maks says, “Not in breakfast”.  No, that’s not a typo, he said “in”.

At this point I was like, Wait!  What just happened?“  I had just gotten to work and I literally locked myself in the bathroom in the lab area so I could listen.  I’m just floored!  No denials, no "friends”.  "the rest is ours and i love it.  We’re going to keep it that way.“  That, my friends is the closest we’re going to get to an out and out admission until the wedding is over!  This coupled with all the likes and retweets by family and friends is all the admission I need.  Smooth sailing from here on out!  

As of right now, we know that Meryl attended a baby shower last night and went to brunch with two couples today.  Someone took a photo of her with the couples from across the street, but we don’t know who that someone was.  Maks has been radio silent so far today save one new following of another menswear twitter account.  He could be anywhere.  

There is supposed to be a DWTS announcement on GMA tomorrow, we don’t know if that will have anything to do with Maks.  Lot’s of "don’t knows” at the moment.  But, I think, we as a fam are learning to be more patient and less speculatory. Speaking of, I highly suggest you read love4liberty ’s recap of her trip to the mall, but also her write-up called “some thoughts about yesterday”.  She talks about how meeting Maks, as the flesh and blood man, changed her perspective on how she feels about his life and choices.  He is more human to her now and I think she feels more patience and less “fan fervor” that he quickly fulfill her expectations for his personal life.  

In the wake of the ‘selfie seen round the world"  a new crop of articles began popping up today.  Yesterday there were almost exclusively “friend zone” articles.  Today they have morphed into “are they dating” articles.  The first referred to the “cozy pic” the next it was a “sexy pic”.  There was even an article at the daily mail website about JLo’s new boy toy that was as much about Meryl and Maks as it was about JLo.  I’m thinking maybe Maks’ new agency has taken over the reigns of his PR.  So far, not bad!

The last BWAT in Lancaster happened today and my very lucky, real-life sister got to be there.  She loved it!  She does not know about my obsession so I asked her casually about the Q and A.  The only question she mentioned was that they were asked if they were returning to DWTS and they said they did not know.  Oh well.  Someone reporting from a BWAT performance yesterday said that Val mentioned there might be another performance of Sway in December after DWTS.  He said there would be new dances and some new cast members (Please let it me Meryl).  He also said that Sharna had been asked to be in the last Sway but could not make it, so I’m hoping she’ll be in the one in December.

So, there are the highlights of another great day.  It will be interesting to see when and where Maks resurfaces and what the DWTS announcement will be.  Have a great evening everybody :)

One day, one rhyme- Day 665

I often dream of strange places,
I often dream of food.
If in Hypnos’ good graces
A dream of both is brewed.
I walked across a meringue field
Under caramel skies.
The lemon sun rose and revealed
Flowers of apple pies.
A chocolate path leads me up
To a marzipan house,
Where I drink from a toffee cup
With a gingerbread mouse.
My new mousy friend leads the way
To a lemonade lake
Where biscuit lilies bend and sway.
We meet a lolly snake,
Who slithers in licorice grass
With cookie hat to doff.
But then my dream does blur and pass,
My alarm clock went off.
