Funny story.  Who knew that my April Fool’s joke would come in handy to save me? Hehehe.

 

So my little joke was pretty cliché where I wore a fake engagement/wedding ring the entire day and see who would notice.  Earlier I was on the public transit with some of my students (part of our program is teaching them how to access the community) and my creeper radar was going off.  In the front of the bus I noticed a man making eye contact with me (I was sitting near the back).  I tried to shrug it off except he kept staring… and staring… even grinned at me. Creepy stare 

 

You know that uncomfortable feeling you get in your gut when something is wrong but you can’t quite explain why? Ringo Oginome Emote (Penguindrum) - Uncomfortable  <--- the feeling like.  That’s what I had for nearly half the bus ride.  He wasn’t looking at anyone else BUT me for several minutes.  Finally, he got up and made his way towards my seat.  The first words, I kid you not, were, “Are you single?”  Immediately my hand with the ring shot up with a clear, “Nope!”  He then went back to his seat and never looked at me again.  The next minute he got off the bus.  APH England sigh of relief  phew!

 

I probably broke his heart LOL but I think he’ll be fine.  Most likely he got over me just as quickly as he zoned in on me.  I don’t care how attractive you may look (or think you may look).  To me, there is much more to a person than outward appearance that weighs heavily on my judgment scale.  It’s not the first time some guys have asked me to be their girlfriend or if I’m single before names are exchanged or even small talk is given.  I like to be treated more than just another body that walks by.  For all people may know, I could be a psycho that you wanted to go out with:iconmnrrapeplz:  I guess some people are so hot to trot but I’m not.  Nope nope nope! Run Away  In the moment it was a bit scary but now it’s all funny.  I probably should have asked him, “Is this an April Fool’s joke or do you just like asking random girls in public if they are single?”

 

Well, in the end my own little joke ending up fooling just one person today.  And I’m completely fine with that.  Have a fantastic day everyone!! :happy:

Dance With Me -15 by andrielisilien
Dance With Me -15

A scene from some little story I've been working on.  I'm so sappy :iconlazycryplz:  Someone help me...


I gasped at the sudden downpour of rain.  It started off small and within seconds it came down hard and fast.  At first I felt bad for the dress I was wearing but as the rain engulfed me I realized that now was too late to save it.  I thought to myself that I might as well enjoy being out in the storm.  The rain has always been a pleasant experience for me in the past.  Why not now?

For a few moments I closed my eyes and let my ears open to the sounds of the rain.  A breeze carried the dull roar of distant thunder and the air was full to burst with cascades.  My head tilted up to take in more.  I could feel tiny feet of rain drops dancing on my skin.  It tickled making me giggle.  I opened my eyes and thrust my arms out for a twirl.


Weston suddenly appeared by my side with his hand outstretched at me.  I had forgotten we were talking just moments ago.  He too was soaking wet but with a soft smile on his face.  His lips parted and my ears could barely hear him whisper above the pattering rain.

“Dance with me.”

I stopped.  For a brief moment I began to question myself on what I should do.  This-this wasn’t what I was expecting.  My heart sped up bit when I tried to imagine me dancing with him.  I… could I dance?  My eyes glanced from his expecting hand, to his face and back down.

It was in that moment I decided to push aside the feeling of doubt and obey his request.  Slowly, my cool hand slipped into his and I was pulled in.

Right away I recognized that the movement he led me in was a waltz.  1-2-3, 1-2-3, 1-2-3…  His feet counted the rhythm out and his arms guided me along.  The rain continued to fall on top of us but I soon forgot about it as Weston twirled me.

It had been so long since I had danced with another man; in fact I never have before in this way.   I could sense his confidence in leadership as he guided me through the steps.  I was being a bit clumsy but Weston was patient.  I even miscounted the steps and ruined the sequence he was putting together.  When I looked up to apologize Weston only grinned in that slightly amused way and repeated the pattern for me.  Pretty soon I picked it up with less and less errors each time till we were moving with ease.

Then, Weston took a different turn from the sequence and I found myself able to follow his lead.  I had now become a picture set into his frame for me to sit comfortably in.  There was such conviction in his guidance and I couldn’t help but smile.  It felt like we were floating now that I was comfortable enough to follow him.  In his hold I was able to sense gentleness to guide me but I also felt trust in that he wouldn’t let go.

Saint David's Day -15 by andrielisilien
Saint David's Day -15
I know this is super late ^^; as the national day of Wales is March 1st but better than never, right?

Lately I've been admiring the beautiful daffodils that are in bloom all over the place.  I like how vibrant the color is especially after a cold pale winter. Then I started to imagine how adorable Owen and Rees would be dozing in them :iconblushingplz:  I would die from the cuteness if I could find the little dears taking a nap like this.  I'm in a cutesy mood right now :aww:

So yeah, um... happy late Saint David's Day.  Can't wait till you know when ;P

So, I just learned of some curious game called Codename: Steam. Apparently it's some strategy game involving a steampunk squad fighting aliens. But here's the kicker: the characters are from American literature! Henry Fleming (from The Red Badge of Courage), Tom Sawyer, Tiger Lilly (from Peter Pan), The Cowardly Lion, and even Randolph Carter (from the works of H.P. Lovecraft)!

I've been quite idle today so I though I'd share another story for old time's sake. The honourable tale of Captain Robert Campbell.

  In 1914, early in the war, he was captured in combat and sent to a PoW camp in Germany, where, a few months later, the poor chap received a letter stating that his mother was dying of cancer. He subsequently wrote a letter to Kaiser Wilhelm II himself, begging the King of Germany to allow him to visit him mother. To his pleasant surprise, the King permitted Campbell to leave the PoW camp on one condition: that he promise to make his way back to the camp after his visit.

  So he took a train to the Netherlands and a passenger liner from there to the UK where he managed to visit his mother. Unexpectedly, not only did he commit to his promise to return to Germany, but the British Military permitted him (such 'sporting' behaviour could have been interpreted as an excuse for desertion) on the basis of his argument that if he did not return to the camp, other British officers would never be given the same opportunity. Two weeks after he left Germany, he turned himself in at the Dutch/German border and returned to the PoW camp (where he escaped after nine months of digging. He reached the Dutch border again but was recaptured almost at the same place he came in). 

  Sadly, not only did his his mother die in 1917, but no other officers were permitted compassionate leave due to a dispute with the British government that involved a German prisoner being refused a similar request. Campbell himself would survive the war and served again in WW2 as the Chief Observer on the Isle of Wight. Fortunately, being positioned in Britain, he was not captured again.

That is amazing he honored his word!  That is a tough call on whether or not to let PoW have special leave for family members.  Real sad what the end result was.  Thank you for sharing this interesting story.

So, I found an interesting little British plane that could, and did in WWII: The Mosquito.

Also, what WWII battles stand out to you the most?
