Advice from the oldies

With the wedding coming closer, the oldies that remembers that it is in just more than a week, started to give me advice for married life...

  • "Never be shy to say sorry"
  • "Never go to bed angry (according to my one bridesmaid, this is not an easy one to commit to)"
  • "Whatever you do, do not be 'hardegat' "
  • "Be at home with a cooked meal when your husband comes back from work"
  • "Never say 'I told you so' "
  • "Your getting married?  Are you out of your mind?"

All you need is love

Stealing this quote from Gypsified  :)  Had to repost it...

We are all a little weird and life’s a little weird, and when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall in mutual weirdness and call it love.

My 4-Year-Anniversary-Fiance

Yesterday was our four year anniversary...Seeing that the story was told at my Kitchen Tea - I can also mention that it was four years since the first time we kissed :)

Things I have learnt about my fiance in these past four years:

  • He likes girls with big eyes (but mostly me)

  • He likes girls with dark hair, but he's got a weak spot for Naomi Watts

  • He loves and introduced me to Wes Anderson movies (he loves so many other directors and movies, but I mention Wes Anderson, because he is weird and random and has a dark sense of humour and I think it symbolizes our relationship)

  • He pretends to be a turtle lying on his back when I am feeling blue  - it makes me laugh every time

  • He has two different colour eyes

  • His favourite band of all times is Led Zeplin, but he also love The Cure

*Fun fact:  When I listen to Led Zeplin's song:  Mysty Mountain Hop, I feel like I am in a movie

  • He sees art in golf courses and he would one day like to design one

  • He reads to me if I can't fall asleep

*It happens to mostly be from Moby Dick as this gets me to fall asleep the easiest

  • We are complete opposites, but we do compliment each other

*This is not a representation of our actual sizes

  • He will make me coffee every morning even though I am very grumpy when I wake up

  • He knows more about everything than anyone I know

  • His favourite series is Battlestar Galactica, but Friday Night Lights has an emotional effect on him

  • He makes a lot of silly jokes - especially if I am sad or angry

  • He is my Vampire and I am his Pixie

  • I want to grow old with him

Laugh of the day:)

Had to put this one up, even though it is not very appropriate:)

OT:  "J, are you ready to go to exercises."
J:  "I think so."  (stands still)
OT:  "So, let's go.  We are going to be late"
J:  (stands still)
OT:  J, come on please!
J:  (gives a looooooong, very loud fart; is startled by the sound he makes and then says)  "I just farted?"
OT:  "Yes J, you did."
J:  (laughing)  "Well, well well..."
OT:  "Okay, let's go.  Are we taking the scenic route, or are we going to go in the elevator?"
J:  "Let's go in the elevator"
OT:  "As long as you don't fart" (smiling)
J:  (looking quite serious)  "I never fart more than once a day."

I love my friends...

And this is why:

The Bacholerette

Can't wait for the wedding Nadolkie:) 

Ps.  That is one awesome song. 

Fun sayings...

So, I've been extremely busy these past few weeks and my blogging definately suffered as a result...

Will definately try to get a few going before the wedding, as I will not be blogging on honeymoon:)

Here is a little light post about a few fun quotes from my work place this past week:

Patient 1/Inappropriate old man:  (reading my shirt - all the males seem to do it, not one female patient bothered to see what is written all over my chest?)  "Love is reading between the lines?  Is that really so?"
OT:  "I guess so.  It has to be if my shirt says so" 
Patient 1/Inappropriate old man::  (to one of his girlfriends, he has two these days)  "Lovely lady, can you read between the lines?"
Patient 2/First girlfriend of patient 1:  "Not without my glasses on"

Volunteer/Fixated-on-knitting-old-lady:  "When is M coming back to finish all my knitted articles? (she can only knit, constantly all the time, without any stop and apparently not stitch together or stuff any of her own toys)
OT:  "I've told you she is really sick, she is on oxygen the whole day and she is not doing good"
Volunteer/Fixated-on-knitting-old-lady:  "I am sure she can use her hands even if she cannot breath"
OT:  Speechless

Porter/Soaking up the sun"Can I ask you a question Darling"
OT:  "Offcourse..."
Porter:  "Would you think I've got a swollen head if I describe myself as a bronze Adonis?"
OT:  Speechless
