Love Cats

Since we will be entering the reception to ‘The Love Cats’ by The Cure, I thought that this picture was fitting:

Love Cats

That’s us every morning, but in cat form. 


10 things I love about you

1.  You keep me laughing all the time.  Whether you’re making Boy Dog play the sofa like a piano, spouting pirate puns, or coming up with silly songs about monkeys, you’re always entertaining.
2.  You are brilliantly intelligent. I learn so much from you.
3.  You know me better than I know myself.
4.  You may be goofy-looking, but to me you’re dead sexy.
5.  You put up with my crazy monthly PMS cry sessions.
6. You not only tolerate my dogs, but you’ve developed a genuine love for them. Well, one of them anyway. Boy Dog adores you.
7. You are passionate in your beliefs. Nobody can ever say that you are apathetic.
8. I can trust you with my life. You are always honest with me.
9. You feed me. You are an amazing cook. Without you, I’d starve.
10. You truly are the greatest thing that’s ever happened to me.

Local Girlfriend Always Wants To Do Stuff

From an Onion Article:

Though he and Maas have dated for almost two years, Bertram reportedly did not recognize the severity of his girlfriend’s near-chronic dependence on getting out of the house and doing stuff until six months ago, when she insisted the two attend a free outdoor concert in their neighborhood. Since that time, Maas has asked an estimated 11 times to be taken to dinner, 17 times to go grocery shopping, and, on 20 separate occasions, has expressed a desire to go on a meandering walk without a fixed destination, purpose, or time limit.

I emailed it to the fiance with the subject “sounds like me.”

He wrote back:

Does the next paragraph say:

“If not properly babysit, she will sit around in her underwear drinking soda water until 3pm when she has a nap for 1 hour and 45 minutes, wakes up, declares she’s hungry, eats a frozen burrito and then asks ‘what are we doing tonight”?

Yep, that’s me in a nutshell.  He knows me so well.

Does anybody stay married anymore?

My Aunt is visiting Mom and Dad in the US. While chatting on Skype with Dad about what they’ve been doing during her visit and the Super Bowl commercials, this message came through from Mom:

“Yesterday Uncle Roy called to talk for the first time since she’s been away. Just to tell her he’s leaving her. He still loves her, will always take care of her, but needs to spend his life finding himself again. Very devastating news.”


They’ve been married for 25 years, raised three amazing kids together, built their house together with their own hands (they even made the bricks by hand!), and worked side by side as business partners through their whole marriage. If they can’t make it, what hope does anybody else’s marriage have of surviving? Let’s hope that this is a phase; a mid-life crisis, or whatever. Please don’t let this be the end of their relationship.

Here I am planning a wedding to the love of my life, and two people whom I believed had a happy, strong relationship may split. That doesn’t leave me feeling very confident.

In my age group everybody places so much importance on the wedding, but they don’t plan for life after the honeymoon. To me, the wedding is just a formality. We’re already fully committed to each other. The wedding is just a chance for us to celebrate our love and life together with those that we love.

We promise each other daily that we’ll be partners forever. That whatever challenges we face, we will survive them together.

Surely our marriage will last…right?

I get that people fall out of love, but I couldn’t imagine a time or circumstance where I wouldn’t love my partner, where he wouldn’t be part of my life. What I fear most is that one day we’ll fall out of love…stop trying…give up.

We’re going into this marriage with the best of intentions and the willingness to work at our relationship. I know we can make it, but I’d be lying if I said that this news doesn’t make me worry.
