Me: Are you reading about cars?
Tyrone: Someone on Facebook posted an article how the 300-mile per gallon VW hybrid is apparently "not allowed in America because it's too efficient" and some quick research shows that that's completely not true.
Me: Who posted that?
Tyrone: Somebody. I don't even know them. It doesn't matter. They're WRONG.

I did send him this one, though:
More on my Tumblr.
Happy V-Day! xox

We've been together for four years, now, which a friend pointed out recently is longer than most of the couples she knows -married or unmarried. Which is true for me as well since I don't think I know many people who've stuck it out as long as we have.
I watch people we know come together and fall apart and yet I look at you every day and feel this growing sense of love and excitement as our lives change and continue to intertwine until, really, it's not "my life" anymore, but "our life." I feel so incredibly lucky to be able to do that, to see you and feel that way and have it only increase over time.
I realize that what you and I have together is rare and unique, and something that a lot of people will never get to experience. I feel so fortunate to be able to have that, with you.
Over the past few years I've leaned so heavily on you, as a student with basically no money and no free time, and you've never been anything but encouraging, kind, considerate, and giving beyond the scope of anything I would have ever dared ask of you. You supported me when I made the incredibly difficult decision of leaving my safe job with the province to pursue my university education, and all throughout the three years I was a student.
I like to think that I would have had the tenacity to continue to pursue my goals on my own, but I know for certain that having you in my life made it significantly easier to do so.
I wasn't just working to make my life better, but to help build a better future for both of us.
I still am.
Back in the very early days of our relationship I was struggling to make a decision: go to school out of province, or stay in Winnipeg to go to school and invest in our relationship. I remember being scared that our relationship wouldn't work out and was talking to my mum about it, and she said "you can go to school anywhere, but you won't find a man like Tyrone anywhere else" and she was right.
Honestly, there are times when you'll be working on some new project, or describing something you read that day to me, and I'll look at you and think "I get to be with him. He loves me. How the fuck did I manage that?"
I'm still figuring that one out.
(My current guess is that I have a wicked rack, but who knows.)
Honestly, it doesn't matter as long as we love each other.
I can't picture my life without you. I would never want to. It would be missing something so vital, so central to my happiness, my motivation, and, really, what makes me who I am.
I have been, and continue to be, shaped by my love for you. You have made me a better person, a happier person, a more grounded and reflective person that I ever would have been able to become on my own.
If I've had even half the positive impact on you that you've had on me, then I'm doing okay.
I could continue. I could go on at length about how much fun I have with you every day, how entertaining and hilarious our conversations are, how adorable you are when you walk around the house in bright underwear and socks pulled up high, how you manage to be so intelligent one minute and so weird and off-the-wall the next, how excited I am to be building a life with you, how being around you makes me a better person, how falling asleep and waking up next to you are the best parts of my day.
Thank you for all of that. For bringing these things into my life and making it so much better.
I love you more than words could ever express, no matter how many long-winded blog posts I write trying to articulate it.

Aww who am I kidding, he'll look amazing.

okay it wasn't that bad.
Tyrone is sick and I am, too. Spent most of the night tossing and turning on the couch half-listening to episodes of TNG and sniffling. I find being sick isn't that bad except for when you can't sleep, which only happens at night and only during nights when you have stuff to do the next day (of course).
needless to say today was a write off of sweaty bed-sleeping and matted hair and kitty cuddles.
Eventually I had to clean myself up and showered and went to the corner store to get stuff for dinner. I always feel like a rock star going into our grubby corner store because everyone else in the neighbourhood goes there in their yoga pants and fuggs and unwashed hair and I'm too vain/neurotic to leave the house unless I look decent.
What I'm leading up to here is that some cute random hipster guy hit on me while I was in the checkout line buying meat and veg and whatnot. He said something really uncool like "I'd let a pretty girl like you make me stew anytime".
Needless to say it made my day because nothing is better than feeling pretty when your head feels like exploding.
Also the stew I made was amazing. Protip: use 1/3 cup of balsamic vinegar and it will make yr beef stew ah-ma-zing.
k back to tea and the couch and DS9.

over coffee this morning we checked out Google Chrome's 3D stellar neighbourhood which is the coolest thing ever.
as a part of our busy day it's always fun to bond over stuff on the internet and make silly remarks and learn a bit together before we part ways
usually it's some dumb image on reddit or a news article we're all fired up about.
today we were talking about binary stars and he took my hands in the living room and we spun around
smiling at each other
and after I went back to brushing my teeth and he combed his hair
we packed lunches and took out the garbage and said
but being a binary star this morning has had me smiling all day
and I need to say it, even though I try not to on the blog
I love you, Tyrone
thanks for being my primary star.

"he was a king wherever he went. He walked like one, he behaved like one, and he was the most masculine man that I have ever met in my life."
okay maybe that was actually about clark gable, but the quote fits.
everyone loves tyrone.
the other day I was talking to @adriantrimble about him and we concluded that tyrone is aloof, but in a good way. like he's obviously got way more important shit to be dealing with than to give anyone his full attention
but when he does you feel like the center of the universe.
which is how he makes me feel all the time. auw.
and even when we know we should hate him for doing stupid things
like being obsessed with being a captain
or being obnoxious
or doing bird calls in restaurants over breakfast
or laughing like burt reynolds
or wearing awful costumes
or being a stick in the mud about rental skates
or planning schemes with chris komus
we just smile n laugh n maybe cover our mouths
(or our eyes)
(or our ears)
and love him a little more for it.
happy birthday, you ridiculous man.
I love you to the moon and back.

why else would he have not told me that the men without hats have apparently gotten back together and released a track?!
I would have never guessed the band that are responsible for the safety dance would come up with something like this
it sounds like a mash-up of music from every video game I've ever played and the 80's
and god damn, despite my better judgement
I kinda love it.
(on a side note
tyrone, are we having a fight I don't know about?)
- by adminwhich is dumb because this is the third time we've attempted to watch it but we keep getting tired. not because it's a bad movie -it's really good and pretty unsettling- but because we always try to watch it at the wrong time.
the first time was a while back. we'd decided to stay in and have a sexytime saturday night in. we made chicken stuffed somethingorother and pasta from de luca's and wine oh yes, wine.
and we made a picnic on the floor in the living room with pillows and lit only candles and it was really romantic and we had a good time eating dinner.
then after we decided to watch a movie and picked the most undatelike movie in our queue which was solaris. and by that I mean the original one in russian not the one with bobble-head george clooney, just to be clear.
we figured we'd watch it and hold each other and then when it was done we'd hold each other some more except in that way and then go to sleep after.
which didn't happen. we fell asleep like 45mins into the movie and woke up during the credits.
so it's been months and we just hadn't gotten around to it and yesterday we spent the day at home hiding from the cold and watching movies. we watched toy story 3 which made us cry and then the english patient which made us cry and then tyrone was all
hey let's finish up solaris
and I was down because I was awake and we'd been rocking movies all day so it made sense.
so we settled in and skipped to the part where we'd passed out last time and starter to give 'er the best watch ever
except 20mins before the end we were both falling asleep
I don't know what it is with us and this movie because it's all the things we like in a film, but we just get sleepy aftert fifteen minutes. either way tonight we're going to make a mean batch of soup and finish that sucker
