one down . . . four to go

finals that is. today was the physcially exhausting final. and he did quite well. i am continually impressed at his dedication to his craft. to learning the stuff, no matter how crazy, so that he can make a good showing in his finals.

i am also impressed how well he withstands the moral pressures that come at him, from everywhere, i appreciate that i can trust him. . . .

i really, really, really, love that about him.

thanks, dragonslayer.

when the going gets tough . . . or stinky . . .

then Dragonslayer comes to the rescue.

can i describe the grossness of spending hours bailing sewage from inside your house? i don't think so, at least not until i can actually deal with it myself . . . but at least i have my big, strong, husband to save me.

i was seriously a damsel in distress, and have been, and he's been there the whole time slaying dragon after dragon . . . like where do we live now? he fixed it. or what am i going to do about work? he fixed it.

i'll say this for that "mr. fix-it" mode that many men have . . . when you really are in a funk . . . or a stunk . . . he really, really comes in handy and he's mighty comforting too.

as long as that kind, understanding, gentleman still makes appearances (so far so good) i'd say it's the best of both worlds. . .

at least if i have to be a damsel in distress maybe next time i'll manage to wear a lowcut corseted and lacy dress . . . or maybe not.

he's just awesome . . a poem

how is he awesome?
let me count the ways--
he's awesome in the morning
when he kisses my cheek,
he's awesome in the evening
when he obliges me with speak,
he's awesome in the bed
when i snuggle up to him,
he's awesome in the kitchen
when i eat what I whim,
he's awesome in summer
when under the stars we walk,
he's awesome in winter
when under the covers we talk.

he's just awesome
and though my poem be not as much
to say he's awesome
i can't poem enough!

intense training

men not in a long-term romantic relationship do not understand that being with a woman is sometimes synonymous to intense spy-training: you must learn excellent listening skills, including inferrence and implication; as well as being in top-notch shape and able to talk your way out of any situation . . . or disappear as is appropriate but you've got to smooth things over properly . . . and this is much more intense than any 007 training too . . .

well, dragonslayer could teach the class . . .

watch The Prestige, going to a "real" theater [instead of the $ theatre is a treat] awesome acting, and fun to snuggle, but a "clumsy" ending.

sometimes it's just the persistent diligence

. . . hee hee hee, that from the department of redundancy department . . . you can only become a real dragon-slayer if, when the dragon is not around you practice and practice and practice to slay the dragon. And sometimes it is just that you showed up again--so that then, in the heat of battle, you have a strength that others do not. then you are a real dragon-slayer.

and he is.

. . . thank you, grasshopper--boot to the head!

super man


i think sometimes that men maybe don't understand that the little things mean a lot . . . last night, we're over at a friends' home and dragonslayer, though he has slayed many dragons that day, still finds time to care that i am thirsty and not only offers me water when he gets up, but later on re-fills my glass without me saying anything! what's more super than that? hurrah for my superman!

such a good man

i have been grumpy and feeling ill and so what does he do? he tucks me into bed, he watches movies with me, he listens and cares, he's patient, he does his best to be understanding, he gets me the food i want . . . he's such a good man!

ward Luau; I speak the alphabet really fast; he holds his breath the longest; Jeffs' birthday party; new stories; lots of fun; late night.

i dunno how he does it



but mon mari knows this spot on my neck that gives me goosebumps, chills, and pleasant shivers every single time!!

you might say he's skilled . . .

the man is unrelentingly undaunted i tell you

he just keeps going, and going, and going . . . through wind and storm and burning sun . . . or at least through butoh and production meetings and little sleep . . . it's a toss-up which would be harder . . . go dragonslayer!!

he's so good-lookin'!!

i have yet to mention that my man has a most handsome juxtaposition of dimples to strong jaw line . . . very possibly the best there ever was or will be on a human male . . .

just thought ya'll should know!

ack! dragon attack!



i may be a modern woman, however when dragons such as this come and attack us in a fury of fear and burning bridges and looking like there’s no way out of whatever current bungling mess we are in, i will quite happily allow my wonderful husband, sir veni vici, to go and bash yonder beastie's head in . . .

i'll be watching, with perfect confidence in his abilities, in a long brocade gown ready to fittingly praise him for his victory upon his return home . . .

he comes, he conquers!!
all hail, dragonslayer!!

mon champion is the one in white


sort of Gandolf-esq

i'm in love with a married man!!

luckily i'm the one married to him!!

best husband in the world award goes to . . .

. . . my husband!!


see . . . i have this penchant for parking in the shade because we don't have air conditioning in our car, and i really, really don't like to be hot (or cold for that matter, i don't want to feel the extremes of temperature throughout my body) . . . dragonslayer, however, thinks i'm crazy and bizarre and other not-so-nice things to have this penchant and yet when i ask him to please park in the shade more often than not--i mean like 8/9 times out of 10--he will go ahead and park in the shade, even if it means moving the car out of the parking stall that he already put it in, all to please little ol' me.


p.s. i'm very well pleased!

the nice waker-uppper

i sleep late, i have a difficult time going to sleep at night--it is difficult for me to sleep with someone else in the bed--and then i am so tired that i sleep late into the morning. . .

which is all fine except when i need to take my husband to the bus stop in the morning because i am going to be needing the car later in the day. . .

as a child my father was a very gruff waker-upper, but my husband is the dearest, kindest man and he is very gentle and sweet when he is being my waker-uppper; even helps me pull on appropriate clothing (one nice thing about having curly hair is that other people pretty much can't tell if i did it that way or it is bed head) and then we go out the door. . .

i'm so glad i married a nice waker-upper!! all my love to you, dragonslayer.

debtslayer

we weren't so wise with money for a while, and i didn't trust him at all, but then i was so resentful and full of venom (i'm so sorry, dear) finally, deciding i wanted to be happy instead of right i let it all go. i decided that i would let him handle it all in his own way and trust that the wonderful, brilliant, responsible man i knew would show up in matters relating to money, and he did / has! i love you so much, debtslayer!

mon mari, mon amore

he's strong, powerful, and intense; and he's gentle, tender, patient, and loving. he's the best man I know, thank you, dragonslayer, for being that way with me.

movie watching

my wonderful husband, dragonslayer, does not like to watch movies at home, he tends to fall asleep, i however enjoy cuddling up with some "new-to-me" movie. and so he props himself up and lets me snuggle up to him as we watch movies, like last night we watched "Rebel Without A Cause" did ever a girl have a better husband?

car adventures

my dear husband, hero, took in the car today for a check-up and repairs. physically speaking it was probably more difficult for him than it would have been for me, but i just really, really, really didn't want to do it and so my hero went and did it for me. he's such a dear!
