And this is my first F-blog (with some V added at the end) ever entirely dedicated to people. Connor ubermunkey and Bruce surely handle the task exceptionally well. Ljubljana was the last leg of their vacation that took them to The Netherlands, Germany and Italy and I have to say I am so utterly happy they made it to Ljubljana I can hardly put it in words. I "met" Connor here on LJ and his posts always amazed me; with their depth, warmth and to the core honesty they bring. I found his inner world magnetising and I was all jumpy when he and Bruce decided they will give Slovenia a tiny try. I am sure I will be coming back to their visit times and times again and now, stuck in my office, condemned and - the way I see it - punished with covering of European elections (while boys are parading around with Igor), I am just as I am. Extremely happy that C&B are here, yet sad they'll be gone tomorrow and I can be pretty darned sure I'll cry tomorrow morning when I'll take them to the airport.
Oh, weepy puff. LOL


I've already posted a version of that picture, but it needs more broadcast. Methinks. Cause melikes.


What to buy, what to buy... :)


We were probably watching The Catherine Tate Show***. It really made us laugh a couple of times. And a couple more.


Tender.....


Igor and Connor enjoying Thai food, Bruce still waiting for the soup. Me? Taking pictures. :)


Post thermal-spa men. :)


Going.......

***So, The CatherineTate Show. Stuff I am translating right now and stuff that really makes me crack each and every time I see it. I simply adore the backhander lady. Here's a fine example of that character. I am laughing again.

Beautiful photos, as always. I know what you mean, as I have the privilege of being able to see both of these guys whenever I please. They are two of the best people one could possibly meet.

Someday, we'll make it to your end of the world, my friend. All the pictures and stories of Bruce & Connor's visit just make we want to come visit even more than before.

Hugs, T.

So you can really consider yourself a very gifted man! :) B&C are amazing, yes. Totally.

And, please, DO make it to my end of the world..... Would make me happy. Again. :)

Melikes too. :)

Connor is very cute when he is confused/undecided.
You advertised him so much that now I'm curious about him. :)

And I like men who aren't ashamed to cry. Just sayin'

The glass shop picture is priceless. :)

I know it probably sounds funny, but overall warmth and personality and charm and kindness of B&C were way way way more more appealing than the fact they are EXTREMELY chic to look at. :)

Hey, M.! It's really easy to take pics of Connor, because he is always... I don't know how to say that... natural I think is the best way to put it. Yes, Europe and Slovenia in it are still here, waiting to be discovered. :)

And thanks!

Connor is a fantastic man. I am happy I got to know him through LJ.

Well, since it seems that my plan to visit Ljubljana in late November is not such a good idea, due to the colder climate at that time, maybe next spring or summer. We should plan for a convergence of LJ people, in fact. All of them can stay at your home and with Viki & Mitja. Good idea?

I think it's a GREAT idea.

LJ meets in LJ.

LJ is what we have on Ljubljana license plates. :)

Looking forward to seeing you!!!

It was so incredible to meet you and get to spend as much time as we did.

Next time we need to budget more time for sure.

thank you thank you and thank you again

you are in my head swirling around, and it's a good thing

right now I'm sitting in Detroit in the lounge waiting for our connecting on to Denver
and I'm listening to your music, and I'm missing you a bit

I was thinking about you today. Reliving some of the fun of that adventure.
You are one of a kind my friend. In the best possible way.

Thanks for the Catherine Tate clip. A friend told me about this show a year or so ago but I'd never seen it. What a genius!

I miss Catherine Tate. I translated (subtitled) all three seasons for one of Slovene channels and the show really grew close to my heart. Alas....... :)
