Re: The "Good News" thread

My best friend proposed to her boyfriend today! And he said yes!

I'm so happy for her, and him too! She's been planning this back and forth the last 6 months... she was supposed to wait until their Christmas trip... but yeah; she got impatient. 

He's such a good match for her, and I get so happy when I see him treat her well. She deserves the very best! And he's really been there for her.

Re: The "Good News" thread

I feel really happy right now! 

I have been waiting for my boyfriend to come to the country for over 2 years now... and we have never been able to make any concrete plans. It's been hard for me, and I'd really wanted to know when... or even if, but it's been difficult to ask. 

My best friend told me she had put him on the guest list for her wedding next year... and I felt a tug in my tummy... of worry, not knowing if he would be able to. 
But I told him and he said that he was planning on being with me by then. 

My heart is doing backflips right now!

Re: The "Good News" thread

I just want to say that I'm happy that I'm in a better place than I was a year ago. 

Facebook has this thing where it shows you posts on the same day through the years... and the posts from a year ago are a bit gloomy. If I hadn't won a gift card for fastfood I was looking at going hungry. I was seeing my doctor for malnutrition because I had lived off of pasta and ketchup... I had so little to live for when rent and stuff was paid it was ridiculous. 
It was last year I asked my family for food instead of Christmas presents too... 


I'm not rich. I'm on disability, mind. But my fridge is pretty full, my freezer is too. I already bought most of the Christmas presents... and I've still got money left to put aside and start saving some up for the future. 

I hope I never have to end up there again.

I remember you telling us about asking for food instead of presents.  I'm glad you're doing better this year.

Re: The "Good News" thread

I'm bursting with something that happened to me last Monday and Solar suggested posting it here to release some pressure. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/tongue.png


Well, on Monday I had the fan-day of my life so far. And this time it didn’t concern Sherlock or Benedict but Tony Hadley. Tony Who? You may ask. He is an English singer, best known for being part of the band Spandau Ballet who was most successful back in the 80s. And I follow him for more than 30 years now, also with his solo stuff, which he already does longer than working with Spandau Ballet.

On Monday he had a gig in my home town. We went to the venue early to check the waters a bit. We toyed with the idea to invite him for a Gluhwein and maybe a chat for 30 minutes or so at the nearby Christmas Market if he would have enough time.
We actually met Tony, he had time and felt like spending time with us. In the end we went to two different Christmas Markets together, met members of his band, had very interesting chats partly with personal topics, which I never expected him to tell us, drank Gluhwein and ate chestnuts. Which he paid.

Most times we had met him after concerts just for maybe 10 minutes together with other fans. He knows our names and that we live in Germany. He always is kind to us.
But this time we had spent two hours with him and he was nicer than ever before. He never tried to get rid of us. And he is "star" enough to do so without any problems. In a nice way of course. I am still stunned that he shared thoughts with us which normally aren’t meant to the ears of fans.

I still am on cloud nine and won’t get down that fast again. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/love.png

Re: The "Good News" thread

Lautrela is right, these kind of things are the best reason to get up each morning and go to work and earn some money for more and more and more events like this one.
I'm so happy for you, gently (as you already know)..!! http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/smile.png

Re: The "Good News" thread

Have an awesome time, Lautrela! It's an AMAZING play! (I always get a tug of happiness in my tummy when I'm reminded of it)

I've loved Hamlet since I was little, but I felt like it was pretty understandable even if you didn't understand the words!
