ft ..J.T..and some pre b'day thoughts

Tomorrow will be my daughters birthday.. and my birthday also.
I remember watching the clock that night in the delivery ward, on the 29th September, 26 years ago, and hoping she would be born after 12.. she was..
Just like me... on the last day of September.
We went through a stage of arguing like cat and dog when she was a teenager. My family were convinced it was because we were just too much alike. Looking back, we were probably more like two irritated sisters rather than mother and daughter. Not any more though.
We are definitely mother and daughter.
I guess we grew up..
I'm very proud of her
She's quite solid
My brother always says he will never get over the day he came over and watched her wash up looking glamorous, in what looked like 6inch heals.. he thought it was hilarious.. who does that .. he thought

I understood it perfectly at the time.. the floor was wet and she didn't want to get wet feet
Besides..If he knew the rows we used to have over dishes back in the day, he'd know better to leave well alone :)

My mum gave me a cake tonight, told me to ice it, and that I wont have to make one now.
Ti's overjoyed as he loves my mums cakes..and food in general
I don't think my mum realises that me not making a cake will feel really odd.. so I think we'll have two cakes.
as I will be making one for my daughter..

Anyway.. what say you J.T?
Sweet.





Verse 1]
Said all I want from you is to see you tomorrow
And every tomorrow, maybe youll let me borrow your heart
And is it too much to ask for every Sunday
If I were radical and every other day to start

I know people make promises all the time
Then they turn right around and break them
When someone cuts your heart open with a knife, while you breahting
But I could be that guy to heal it over time
And I wont stop until you believe it
Cause baby you're worth it

[Chorus]
So don't act like its a bad thing to fall in love with me
Cause you might f*ck around and find your dreams come true, with me
Spend all your time and your money just find out my love was free
So don't act like its a bad thing to fall in love with me, me
Its not a bad thing to fall in love with me, me

[Verse 2]
Now how about Id be the last voice you hear tonight?
And every other night for the rest of the nights that there are
Every morning I just wanna see you staring back at me
'Cause I know thats a good place to start

I know people make promises all the time
Then they turn right around and break them
When someone cuts your heart open with a knife, while you beating
But I could be that guy to heal it over time
And I wont stop until you believe it
Cause baby you're worth it

[Chorus]
So don't act like its a bad thing to fall in love with me
Cause you might f*ck around and find your dreams come true, with me
Spend all your time and your money just find out my love was free
So don't act like its a bad thing to fall in love with me, me
Its not a bad thing to fall in love with me, me
Its not a bad thing to fall in love with me, me
No such a bad thing to fall in love with me

No I wont fill your mind, with broken promises, and waste of time
And if you fall, you'll always land right in these arms
These arms of mine

[Chorus]
So don't act like its a bad thing to fall in love with me
Cause you might f*ck around and find your dreams come true, with me
Spend all your time and your money just find out my love was free
So don't act like its a bad thing to fall in love with me, me
Its not a bad thing to fall in love with me, me
Not such a bad thing to fall in love with me

Snoop Lion.. not scary at all

Snoop looks like one of my brothers

Hey Snoop.. about this music vid...
I reckon the Panda takes it..



I prefer the original..
I think it would have been nicer to have retained a little more of its original essence..
A little less wacky?



Still.. wacky may sell more
Tell you what though. That Panda could have held down this track on his own.. rocked it throughout.
I could take a Panda vid with the original any day. Cool dude
What say you.. Panda and Ranglin?.

Taking it easy on Samedi

I’m taking it easy with Ky today. A nice tonic when you're feeling a little under the weather.

Here he is.. in my boots.


After finding Ti's tiny collection of red nose day noses today


Showed me a few of his dance moves
I showed him a few of mine, and he laughed.
We'll have a quiet day, one full of questions I’m sure, but it's a chance to catch up with how he getting on at school.
He's growing fast, and thankfully currently playing an imaginary... fill my car with gas.. game.
He's only here for the weekend

***

As he worked on a project, I asked Ti this morning, if he has study music..
He says no as he finds it distracts him...
I said try some classical... apparently it helps you concentrate... try Rembrandt or something... err no.. he was an artist *giggles*
Ok... name a composer... but leave out Beethoven, and Tchaikovsky
"I don't know any"
"Me neither"
"How about some Elgar"
"Ok..", he found some
So I thought I’d tease him. Every time he put it on, I started talking really fast in this weird monotone voice
"thesquarerounteof525 000, 000is...computecomputecompute,thereareovera billionstarsinthesky,yetfewinhabitableplanetsknowntoman=... inthe 18c the government issueda prolcamationoutlawing..".. pure crap!
Heck, I wish I was smart like that.. but Stephetta Fry I aint

"What are you on about?" he laughed
"I can help it!" I told him.. "The classical's taking over, and I immediately feel more intelligent!"
..."see it's happening again (cue more rapidnonfacts)... "It's a fact that listening to classical music makes one more intelligent"...

I'm such an arse... I laughed

He threatened to turn it off
But oddly enough, despite my joking around around, he kept it on, on low, but on...
Was relaxing enough.. a nice break.
I was tempted to tell him to put a suit on...
Apparently that works wonders for one’s intelligence too...
But I didn't want to overdo it
I know... I have silly humour...

Is there are music that helps you to concentrate..?
Do you have any weird rituals or beliefs?

Does classical music played to babies in the womb promote their intelligence?
Do you feel smarter in certain clothes?
Do you put new shoes on the table?
Do you trust a man with thin lips or shiny shoes?
Do you walk under ladders?
Do you interpret your dreams?
Are redheads lively?
Do all black women have big round butts
Can white men dance?
Do all dreads smoke?
Are some nations barbaric?
Are we all one?
If you put all egomaniacs and sociopaths on an island together, would they get on?
If I boil garlic and honey will I feel better quicker?
Does that remedy only work with rum?

Should Carol Jackson give David a chance.. again?
Or run like the wind.. and give her new beau a chance?
*Eastenders*

Across the waters..

Quite liked this..




**

Baaba Maal from Senegal..





Youssou N'Dour & Neneh Cherry

Remember this?



A little more on Senegal









TGI Friday..

Battlin' on...

This week’s irritations...
Hearing a story today that the long term unemployed will be told if they do not take on a full time non-paying job... they will have their benefits removed ( it was described as a full time non-paying job)
Should the powers that be go ahead with this - it could ruin many things... it could also skew the concept of volunteering.
Hmmm.. the on-going demonization of the poor

Why are some are ridiculing Ed Miliband's proposal... or desire to freeze energy prices?
( How on earth can some ridicule a proposal to stop what appears to be the overcharging of customers by these huge companies, despite huge profits.. and why shouldn’t the government get involved?.. ‘well they’re powerless’ (no pun intended) some say.. ‘these are private companies..'
Give me a break.

Reminds me of the phrase...
The rich do what they want - the poor do what they can

Thought of the day

The rich despise the poor, the poor despise the rich, and somewhere in the shrinking middle are those wondering... what the hell going is on...
Can't we all just get along?
Err... no.

Have a nice day all x

Not nagging..

Il est Jeudi et je suis malade..
I'm battling a sore throat and sore stomach aka stomach ache.
It's okay though.. not too bad..

I'm pleased it's Friday tomorrow. Vendredi
Je parle un peu francais, je suis etudiant..

I find writing in French helps me remember...a little
Restful evening tonight.. I under-seasoned my dinner so it was nice but could have tasted much nicer. Ti 's coming on leaps and bounds theses days, cooking dinner on my late evenings, doing the dishes etc.. without me even having to ask.
Great.. took 20yrs but ..i think he's got it!
It's nice, and a BIG help to me.

I've tended to try to explain why I say the things I say.. as I know that sometimes if I say things over and over , it can seem like nagging, so I've altered my approach over the years. basically.. space it out a bit more:)
So now, I don't think he sees me as a nagging mum.. as much as I suspect he used to.

Anyway.. as a result we are both able to enjoy our evenings more

I'm looking forward to the weekend, and a few days off next week
My body tells me so




No matter how many times I watch it..

I still enjoy it..
I love films

One of my favourite films,( which I’m watching now for possibly the gazillionth time)... is Bridget Jones’s Diary. I particularly like the scene with the Van Morrison track..
I like Rom coms.. what can I say..



I’ve caught a few episodes of The Office recently, ( not a film I know) and although I don’t find Ricky Gervais particularly funny.. in The Office, as David Brent... he’s hilarious.
He's also okay in Night at the Museum, but can’t touch Ben Stiller.
Ben Stiller even looks funny. Funny bones.
If Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson are in a film I’ll watch it, and enjoy it... as they also make me laugh
I can watch an entire movie for just one scene.. if I miss it.. I’ll be quite disappointed. Most films have 'a scene'..Like a little nugget of gold.
One such nugget (for me) is in the film the Break –Up with Vince Vaughn and Jennifer Aniston

The Tone Rangers..
If you've never seen the film give it a try..

.."and Gary.. on the kick drum.. come come.. on the kick drum..."



I like silly sometimes..
Anyway..

I think I mentioned once that the worst ending to a film for me.. with regards to dialogue is Pretty Woman... very disappointing.

but I do like the line in Bridget Jones..
"..i'm still looking for something...more extraordinary than that.."

and on that note..that's all for tonight.. sweet dreamZ

Who's lovin' you

I found myself humming this for seemingly no reason at all this evening






This reminds me of school..


and this is one of the songs I like to listen to at night.. or in the dark
or when i'm in that place
Quite soothing after a busy day




Evening all..

Bonsoir :)
Comment allez vous?
Moi?..
Je vais bien merci!
Et vous?
Vous allez bien?
Lundi?.. com se com sa
il est huit heures.. and something.. blah

I'd love to say more about my day in French.. but that's about it really :(
wouldn't get too far in France on that..

Busy day as per. Dinner was nice.. Sunday dinner tends to be a treat on Monday
effortless.
Imagine.. if I cook enough tomorrow, that would take care of Weds
but if I cook now , I wouldn't have to cook tomorrow
But I wont be doing that
I've an article to read, and a bit of practice to do (which I actually find quite relaxing)
Anyway..a tout a l'heure! ( needed my notes for that. forgot how to say bye!)




You and me

We look different
Perhaps like different things..
food.. music.. taste in clothes
Our life journey's are varied..
Often complex
Sometimes simple.
We present our various histories.. stories of place.. and displacement
We experience inequality.. insincerity.. insecurity..joy
We may be judged by our appearances
It is often so.
Judged further by our actions
Although we may read about each other.. we often experience little of each other
Although we may build walls around ourselves..
No man, or woman, is an island
We breathe in.. and out.. until we stop.

We all desire love..
To share and receive
To be heard..
and to listen
To see..
and be seen
We all feel a need to protect ourselves and our loved ones from harm
In reality we share more in common..
than that which divides us

It's okay to be different
No really.. it is
Not a carbon copy
Fat
Thin
Tall
Short.
Our bodies..
House their own unique beauty
Allow your beauty to shine
and bask in the glow..
of another's
Can you see it?
different
and beautiful

Friday dancehall mixed bag









Yawning..I mean.. Morning x

Up Up Up
I'm tired. I think it's because I was reluctant to sleep last night
For two nights I've had a nightmare.
For two nights waking up at the same time ( or close to)
For two nights a bizzare situation
I can't work out what that's about, and why all of a sudden. Anyway.. up, up, up

Hopefully there will be no more of that x

Made to love - John Legend

I was sent here for you
We were made to love, we were made to love
You were sent for me too
We were made to love.. we were made to love





I'm a bit in love with his songs
This.. is.. nice.

Polygamy..

Why make one woman unhappy... when you can make several, really miserable...

Okay... I’ll be serious for a moment. Then again..perhaps not.

I watched a video the other day, featuring a very smart academic, on the subject of polygamy. He spoke about African polygamy, stated that women control the system of polygamy, and originally, it was as a result of males dying in battle etc, and that it became clear that an alternative system, (away from one man to one woman), was required. Without such an alternative, he argued, the result would have been chaos, fighting among women, illegitimate children, and some women remaining husband-less and child-less for ever.
(There was no discussion on whether the women even wanted a husband or children, it was a given)

Anyway, he stated that prior to marriage, a man would go to the council of elders; state his case, credentials, and ability to maintain a wife, and family. The elders would hear his case, and then seek guidance from the spiritual elders, who would then seek to ascertain whether or not the man and woman involved would be a match, spiritually, mentally, physically, and whether it would be prudent for them both to be joined in a marriage.
If deemed a good match. That would be that. It would be agreed that they should marry
okay.. logical..
That man would then undergo the same process with additional wives.

Anyway, he then went on to state very humorously what he would like to see as a model.
A list = the first wife. A young virgin.
B list = not a virgin, perhaps a single mum, but still youthful...
C list? = over 45, married before, few kids, still appealing however
D list? = the rough ones, who he described as wayward, the fighters, the wild ones, possibly a conviction or two, yet not entirely rehabilitated.
According to him, every woman deserves a husband, and none should be left out. The most useful of all, in his eyes, would be the D list-ers, as a D list-er, would keep the others in line, and kick some arse, if the other wives stepped outa line.

I stopped taking him seriously on this after his first intake of breath
But found his views interesting nonetheless


Polygamy appears to be one of those conversations/dreams that some men have.
I guess it’s a fantasy, like any other
For others.. a reality.
Whilst it may prove beneficial under certain circumstance, and amidst some cultures, it tends to raise a smile from me, when I hear men in the western world speak of it.


.
Sure there are many who practice it, I've watched a few documentaries on it, but the women that I’ve seen interviewed have never come across as particularly happy.
Each to their own I guess
I can state that I’ve never met a man who deserved more than one wife. To be honest, some really could do with being grateful they have one at all.
He would have to be some kinda guy
If fully present in the relationship.. If you truly turn up fully.. Isn't one wife more than enough to keep one busy?.

His overall case was that polygamy was not for the men.. but for the women.

**

Chatting to a friend the other day about her dating experiences. I began to think about the little kinks, likes and dislikes we as people tend to have
I can honestly say that men with a breast fascination scare me. What is that about?
Is it something to do with being, or rather not being breastfed?
Well...too late...

Version excursion

Tonight is early night night.
Definitely need to catch sweet Zzzzz.. I'm half asleep already and it's not even 8pm.
Too many late nights of late ( odd sentence)
See...told you I was tired.
Hope you all had a nice day.. doing all that you do :)
I do like odd sentences ..
and my bed







Reggae Winter warmers - Third World



Days goes into evening, yeah ya
Night fades away
I see a bright sun shining every morning
Lord then a shower of rain
Give thanks and praise, give thanks and praise

I see Jah glory in the morning sun
I see Jah glory when the day is done

A little bit of it can be sweet
when you ain't got plenty
Don't drown yourself now
Don't drown yourself now
In too much honey

You wake up early every morning
Worrying about your earthly possessions yes
Don't make it hold ya
Don't make it hold ya
In these obsessions

I see Jah glory in the morning sun
I see Jah glory when the day is done

I see Jah glory in the morning sun
I see Jah glory when the day is done

and In the Studio....

To the bone

French class went well..tres bien!. Will practice with my handouts
Ti's 1st uni day is tomorrow.
We're both very pleased.
He's a bit nervous but he's looking forward to it.. so he'll be fine. Proud of him. He's come along well since leaving school. The college experience definitely suited him far more.

Almost mid week, and I'm cold. Incredibly cold. I've tried to warm up but so far nothing has worked. My priority will be...over the next few days...to try and remain as warm as possible

In fact, I felt extremely cold for most of today. No matter what i did, i just couldn't seem to get warm
It began well enough.. but wow.. the body has some serious adjustments to make to prepare for chilly autumn nights and frosty winters.
Like many people I function best when warm
There is a noticeable difference that I feel
so a priority for me is to keep as warm, as possible.

I know I have a wimpish attitude when it comes to the cold
esp as Winter hasn't even kicked in yet...

Faux fur coat?
thermals?
Winter soups
Layers?

For now?... it's turn up the thermostat time..

Sounds like Sunday

Il pleut!

Soulmate Sunday

The sun is shining, the garden's a bit untidy, but dinners on the stove, and ( as I tested it last night) the heating works.
Good Great!'
In the week, I began reading an article, but hadn't saved the reference, so couldn't find it the following day.
Each day, I searched hard.. but couldn't find it.. it was frustrating
This morning, with little effort, I logged on , and bingo..found it.
Oddly.. I couldn't tell you how I found it.. but I've saved it this time.
I never gave up hope.
Which, I guess, is why I found it.
So, today, the message coming to me is.. never give up hope.. or stop looking
I am naturally curious

Those who tell you something is not possible, or laugh at your dreams, roll their eyes at your passion/s, or mock your hopes..
are often, those who have given up...disconnected..lost faith..silenced their inner child.. possibly haven't found their own dream.. are afraid, have tried and failed.. and have simply stopped

It happens
...to the best of us, and the worst of us
Until.

I, we all..have a choice to follow suit, or leave unbelievers be
It's quite possible, that they are not required.. for your dream to become a reality..
But, they may help to straighten your back a little, tilt your head a little higher.. and inspire purpose in your stride.


Today's quote

'When someone shows you who they are, believe them the first time'.
Maya Angelou

Happy SMSx

Songs for a rainy night

I don't know my family past my grandparents
I don't really want to ask my mum too much as it can be upsetting for some to delve into the past.. it may not be, but I suspect it may
Carribean family trees can be tricky, alot of work and investigation..may involve searching colonial archives etc.. depending on how far back one wishes to go, and with the destruction of many records, displacement, slavery, the adoption of western names etc..it may turn out pretty sketchy
Yet I'm intreaged
There's a story there, not straightforward, but deserving of remembrance
Maybe one day.. someday

Songs for a rainy night?

Thought of the day..

Things I never thought I'd say ..1

"Ti... Crimewatch is on.."
!?!

Songs to take to bed.. 1

For the past two nights I've fallen asleep listening to Charlie Wilson
It's been lovely
He's lovely


Reincarnated souls

I'm actually not too tired this evening, but I'm still glad we're approaching Friday.
I'm trying to improve my diet, eat more healthily.. so perhaps that's why
That.. and iron
That..and not stressing too much.
I thought today about reincarnated souls.. that thought led me to Bunny Wailer's song of that title.. which lead me to reflecting on the tracks I love the most.
Hence the Bunny spotlight
One thing leads to another.
Always.

I read somewhere once that after we're born, we spend the remainder of our lives trying to reconnect or remember, that which our souls already know.. or once knew. that when we feel out of sorts, it's an indication that something is not true.. or right, deep within us.
Sometimes.
Perhaps, there's something we need to do
Are avoiding
Need to confront
Or release
Sometimes..

Other times it's simply..
An unmet basic need
A lousy day
Or a row with a loved one
Something simple
Not too deep
Knowing which is which is important
It helps
But... if..
We are reincarnated souls
I wonder what my souls purpose is
Why I feel what I feel, when I feel it
I wonder what I 'm missing..
If I'm missing it, at all
Do we all have karmic ties we need to deal with?
I remember once also reading that we are never off our path.. wherever we are, or whatever we're going through in life ..
So.. smile.. it's Thursday

Spotlight on Bunny Wailer

Bunny Wailer has written some extremely meaningful and soul searching songs over the years. These, some of his earlier tracks, were among the ones I listened to the most..



Some are simply just real cool









I miss reading album sleeves

parlez vous francais?


No.. can't say that I do
So.. I've decided to take some classes
To learn

At least I'll see how I get on after the 1st lesson
I admire those that come from other countries, and learn English, regardless of their age
So.. i'm gonna give another language a try
Classes start later this month, so if I don't get cold feet
I shall report back :)

Room 101

Do you know..

That as time goes on..
The more I see, hear, and feel...
The more I appreciate the kind people I meet
As I recognise... how truly special they are
No pretense.
Just
Solid.

Kindness is not a weakness
Although it's sometimes perceived to be foolhardy.
Sometimes, I could scream.
Yet little difference it would make
Although its good to vent at times.. to let it out

Give it up tp the heavens I say, but know, that it's usually the things we care, or feel strongly about that get us moving, growing
and make us stronger
Strong enough to fight the good fight
To change it you have to recognise it
In room 101 today?
I could fill it
But for now..
Racism
and rudeness
together, or apart.. they're both going in


Sunday, 8 September 2013

til we meet again weekend..

I've enjoyed you
Well..I've definitely indulged in some comforting music today, and as I wave goodbye to the weekend, I've decided to end that particular run of tracks with.. Pat Kelly.
I'm so pleased to have found it, as I haven't heard it in years.
We seem to be waving goodbye to the sunshine slowly but surely, yet I hear this, and it's as if it can never leave



Bedforshire beckons

Songs from the Gram

I love this song very much.
Not sure why, but it got under my skin many moons ago I guess. It sure does evoke a few memories.. home, family, Sunday evenings..
and hey... it is Sunday evening after all
Plus its sweet, romantic and very simple.
No fuss.



Had a quiet day today, not doing too much. Watched Pocahontas with Ti which was a laugh as we used to watch it when he was small.,. so all the classic songs came out.. along with memorable lines..
Ti decided to whip out his phone and give me the low down on the real story of Pocahontas (sounded like a straight up capture to me)
Whats funny is when I do that.. he rolls his eyes.. tells me i'm so extra, then asks me why i'm getting my BA involved.. cheek.
Yeah, whatever, at least get it right Ti.. geesh
No-one can talk through a show like his uncle that's for sure :)

Happy Sunday anyway all, whatever you're doing
Revival selection.. a trip down memory lane N16









The Wailers









The Studio version

Thought of the day.. on fear and love

Fear may halt you in your tracks.. imprison you, but love will get you moving again.. and set you free

If life was like a game of chess..

What chess piece would best represent you?


Would you be a Pawn?
Useful but treated as easy fodder, cast aside with seemingly little value

A Rook - stoic and rigid

A Knight - Nice looking, yet willing to step on or over others, or return back to the same spot if things get tough?

A Bishop - fast and flexible if a little hasty

A King?

or a Queen?



Friday, 6 September 2013

Thought of the day..

What matters most.. the journey.. or the destination?

Thought of the day.. on love.. and is it ever okay to settle

When you meet someone..
It's not uncommon to see them as, or think, they're the best thing since slice bread..


If .. after really getting to know them, you still think that way..
You may be on to a winner


Sometimes though.. you may find yourself saying..
errr..you know what?.. it's not me.. it's you!. :)


So is it ever okay to settle?
Perhaps for business reasons/family/finance/age/little choice/make do and mend/children/shared goals/faith/illness
I'm sure it's okay, and in some cases ( for some) makes perfect sense.
It's a risk.. but isn't love always?

I guess some will.. and others wont have to

The day before the weekend

I haven't said this for a while but ..TGIF!
A few stories caught my imagination this week..

Firstly footballer Gareth Bale will reportedly be earning £300,000 a week after his move to Real Madrid
( can you imagine?.. I can.. would be lovely)
errr.. bills?.. what bills?


The second was a woman from NY who was called the N word..


by her manager..


and was awarded $280,000
Can you imagine?... [click]

Interesting case.. but sad.

Enjoy the day before the weekend :)

Body clocks..

I'm still trying to get my body clock back on track.

Prior to the summer break I was a 5.30/6am riser. Now... I'm struggling to manage 6.30.. its become more like 6.50.
I know ( for me) 7am means I'm running really late.
I'm also trying to make sure I have a decent breakfast which includes eggs, so that takes a little longer. Longer it takes me to get ready, the later I get to work. Later I get to work.. the later I have to stay.. later I stay.. later I get home.. later I get home.. later I get my bath.. later I get my bath.. later I have dinner.. later I have dinner later I get to do everything else.. later I do everything else.. later I have me time.. later me time means.. later I get to bed.. later i get to bed...
get my drift?...

So.. The solution is I simply have to force myself back into the rhythm,.. and get up earlier!!!!
Ouch.

My song for the day (which was yesterday lol)

Stevie Wonder
It's foggy outside.. Autumn has arrived



Yes.. definitely in the mood for some Stevie

A walk in the park

Life isn't always a walk in the park
But sometimes a walk in the park.. is just fine


A lovely hot day today..
Now i'm quite tuckered out!
Selected my module for this term.. I wavered briefly between gender and social justice ( with a focus on the welfare state)
I chose gender
Gut feeling, as both interest me
Hey.. it seems I'm becoming a lot more decisive.

So not very Libran of me. :)
an early night beckons...

Citizen or Stranger

Good Morning September

Woke up early this morning to start dinner and get Ti's birthday cake in the oven

Smells good so far.
I used brown sugar on my old recipe, I normally use white sugar , so it may taste a bit different.. we'll see

As I began mixing, this came on Aljazeera, and was really interesting.. great documentary.
BLACK FRANCE

looking forward to the other episodes, which I'll post when they become available.

Anyway.. this should should be transformed into a full on Birthday Cake soon enough



Happy Birthday to Ti.. 20 today.
and Happy September to all.

didn't take too long..


and finally..




Dance it out..








Snoop's acting like he's not into it.. but he loves it really..



Then relax..
