Yep. Indeed. 13 years of being married to my best friend. I have SO MUCH MORE to say, but I have SO MUCH to accomplish today, including ordering a "FACECAKE" with this plastered all over it:

And perhaps a little o' this:

Maybe some of this:

And hopefully, if there's enough room on the damn cake left, this:

But when it all boils down to the e-FUCKING-ssentials? Past the promised gifts and summer vacations? Beyond the passion of lust and into the vortex of love being an actual fucking reality? And getting past that reality to realize that you truly can be married to your best fucking friend in life and NOT have to agree on every fucking thing and get along with each other every day of your life to be an "item"?

THIS is all that ever really matters.....

My mom and dad took the time this weekend to put together a SONG (yes, please DO click on the link, so you can hear "Kapantay ay Langit" for yourselves!) for Snookms and I celebrating 13 years of mad love for one another. It's in TAGALOG, the language of the Philippines, and it brings joy to my heart to hear my mother sing every word, every turn of graceful inflection.

It's always been a dream of mine to hear her sing a song for me in her native language. She speaks it so eloquently in fact, that I would sometimes need to hear her speak in that fluid form just to fall asleep at night. I remember it so well, like it was yesterday, curled up in a ball snuggled firmly into her backside on her and my dad's kingsize waterbed, preying witness to her late night phone conversations with any one of her 7 siblings. I would hear the nervous click of her fingernails as a backdrop to the language I heard her speak with such ease, and into the land of slumber I would drift, thinking I knew how to speak the language of the gods.

Thanks Poopsie! I was six months pregnant, so I wasn't feeling so adorable, y'know? We weren't even allowed to fuck on our honeymoon, but we did anyway. >_<

Aw, congratulations. We're coming up on eighteen, and we wouldn't have it any other way. (We were officially teenaged sweethearts, though we met at university).

Love love love the HAIR btw. My snuggles never cut his off. :) But then, he doesn't have that much of it--sheesh!

Part of my novel takes place in the Phillippines. Some real Tagalog would add a lot of flavor, though they don't end up mixing with the locals much.

18 years? Really? Holy shit!! That is some TIME put in! I envy you though. It's so great to be in love with your best friend for that long. And you still speak so fondly of your spouse so openly and freely. Says alot about you m'lady. :)

Yes, I too loved the hair, but alas, it is gone. S'kay though, he still looks mad sexy either way.

And yeah, Phillipines huh? Very cool. You have brilliance in your blood, I'm tellin ya!! I can sniff brilliance out in a second!

My mom would LOVE to hear you say that to her face. :D
