So, tomorrow there is a wedding I believe you have all been invited to.
Thought it might be fun to tell stories of courtship and marriage.

I will start it off, by telling you a lovely story, or at least I think it is.

I met Ron on Carnivale. He was my boss. I thought he was kinda fabulous, but he was my boss.
Well, it was an absolutely horrible show to work on. Insanely beautiful and wildly creative, but so absolutely out of control that I went blind in one eye, one day from the stress. After a van of costumes suspiciously burned up, and I had a crew from hell that I was trying to manage, Ron and I had more and more meetings to try and do damage control.
I was smitten by this time, while trying to talk myself out of having a crush on my boss.

It was pretty late one evening, and we had been having a disaster control meeting in my office. We’d been talking about all the horrid details, and drinking scotch at the same time.

We were just about done, when he said, “I have something else I need to talk to you about”

I was flooded with terror. “Here it comes, this is where I get fired.”

Ron says. “you know when we are in meetings, and you are sitting over on the side and I am up in front?”

(WHAT the hell ????????? I am thinking.)

“Well”, he says, “Everytime you lean forward to say something, it is as if the lights get brighter in the room, and then when you lean back, they go dim again”

I will tell you the rest of the story after the wedding episode.

Last night after I finished this post, and finally fell asleep, I dreamt this entire song. It must be connected. Of course I was also a nurse in a hospital. So who the hell knows?

This week’s selection is a piece by Runrig.
Here are the lyrics in both Gaelic and English.

Taobh cuil an doruis cha bhi grian
Suidh aig bord
Cha bhi biadh ‘s cha bhi fion
Taobh cuil an doruis cha bhi grian
Cha bhi biadh ‘s cha bhi fion

Le eiginn ar n-eirigh as ar suain
Le eiginn ar n-eirigh as ar suain
An Gaidheal ‘sa leabaidh
An Gaidheal ‘na shuain
Le eiginn ar n-eirigh as ar suain

Thainig e a Sasainn ann
Thainig e
Le eachaibh luath is iuchair throm
Thainig e a Sasainn ann
Le eachaibh luath is iuchair throm

Le eiginn ar n-eirigh as ar suain
Le eiginn ar n-eirigh as ar suain
An Gaidheal ‘sa leabaidh
An Gaidheal ‘na shuain
Le eiginn ar n-eirigh as ar suain

Air lar ‘san toll-dhubh cha bhi grian
Cha bhi gealach
‘S dubh an oidhche chaidleas sinn
Air lar ‘san toll-dhubh cha bhi grian
‘S dubh an oidhche chaidleas sinn

Le eiginn ar n-eirigh as ar suain
Le eiginn ar n-eirigh as ar suain
An Gaidheal ‘sa leabaidh
An Gaidheal ‘na shuain
Le eiginn ar n-eirigh as ar suain

On the other side of the door there will be no sun
Sitting at the table
There will be no food and no wine
On the other side of the door there will be no sun
There will be no food and no wine

It is with difficulty that we will rise from our slumber
It is with difficulty that we will rise from our slumber
The Gael has gone to bed
The Gael is asleep
It is with difficulty that we will rise from our slumber

He came from the south
He came
On a fast horse and with a heavy key
He came from the south
On a fast horse and with a heavy key

It is with difficulty that we will rise from our slumber
It is with difficulty that we will rise from our slumber
The Gael has gone to bed
The Gael is asleep
It is with difficulty that we will rise from our slumber

On the dungeon floor there will be no sun
There will be no moon
Dark will be the night as we sleep
On the dungeon floor there will be no sun
Dark will be the night as we sleep

It is with difficulty that we will rise from our slumber
It is with difficulty that we will rise from our slumber
The Gael has gone to bed
The Gael is asleep
It is with difficulty that we will rise from our slumber
