Unfortunately I will be without internet until the 21st. I have my phone so I will be checking in as much as I can. The good thing is I will have a ton of updates when I get back.
Love you all!

"So, where are you from?" Kana’i asked.
Maeve raised an eyebrow, thoroughly amused. “Galway City by way of Belfast, just like Brendan.”
Kana’i could feel his face turning red. Brah, come on…don’t be a moron this time, he thought to himself. "So, how old are you?"
Excellent recovery, dipshit. Simply stellar.
Maeve ran a finger around the rim of her glass. “Don’t ye know it’s not polite to be askin’ a woman her age? But for the record, I’m 30. Brendan is the youngest, I’m before him.” Her lips quirked up a little bit. “Ye know, it’s cool if ye just be yourself. I hate when guys try to chat me up with fake shite,” She sipped her drink. “Ye look like Khal Drogo.”
He chuckled. “Well, Jason Momoa IS Native Hawaiian, so I’ll take it as a compliment.”
"Good, it was meant as one. Now tell me about bein’ a tattoo artist."
Things were looking up already…
After the introductions were made, the younger crowd moved to a local outdoor bar while the two moms stayed home and got better acquainted.
"Look at Kana’i," Remy said to Brendan.
Brendan tried to look over his shoulder while seeming inconspicuous, and saw Kana’i chatting up his sister Maeve at the bar. “Ah, she’s caught his eye, yeah?”
"Yeah. Looks wise she’s totally his type. Unfortunately Kana’i isn’t exactly smooth with women. He’s never needed to be. They always threw themselves at him."
Brendan shook his head. “Well, Maeve doesn’t throw herself at any man, so he’s got his work cut out for him.”
Remy took a drink of his beer. “So when’s Evan getting in?”
Lani’s eyes widened. “Evan HAWTHORNE is coming?”
Brendan looked confused. “He’s one of my best friends. Why wouldn’t he be here?”
Lani looked to her cousin. “It’s cool, Lani. That relationship is in the past and Evan is an awesome guy. He’s a friend to Brendan so he’s a friend to me as well.”
He supposed he couldn’t blame Kana’i. Maeve Donnelly was beautiful like her other sisters. She shared their pale white skin and light freckles, but had a look all her own with her purple hair and multiple tattoos. She worked as a makeup artist in Galway City, her career bolstered by the large following she had on her YouTube beauty channel, GalwayGirlMUA.
Everyone was so busy talking that they didn’t notice Remy and his cousins come in. “Brah, she is fucking gorgeous,” Kana’i stammered out, grabbing Remy’s arm, “I fear I may have to let her see me naked.”
"Please don’t greet her with that, okay?" Remy pleaded. Kana’i’s lack of game with women was the stuff of local legend. He had been a football star in high school so girls flocked to him with no effort on his part, and in his career as a tattoo artist, he spent most of his time around guys, so he wasn’t exactly the smoothest cat on the block.
Remy knew from his fiance that Maeve didn’t suffer fools gladly. He could only hope Kana’i didn’t act like one.
When Remy opened the door, he could sort of see what Lani was talking about. It was a veritable sea of coal-black hair and freckles. Remy had only met Brendan’s mother and oldest sister Maggie in person before, and now, seeing not only them but Brendan’s other three sisters, well, he now understood Lani’s hesitancy a bit better.
Everyone seemed to be talking at once in the same kind of rollicking Irish accent that Remy had grown to adore hearing. Everyone seemed to not be able to speak without punctuating the words with excited hand gestures.
Kani sat in the corner taking it all in, chatting with Brendan’s mother. She seemed completely at ease, but then again she’d spent most her career as a teacher, so big groups of rowdies weren’t foreign to her.
Remy had had Skype chats with the sisters he hadn’t met, so he was able to recognize Branna, Roisin, and Maeve right away.
Through the corner of his eye, Remy saw his cousin Kana’i’s eyes skip over all the admittedly gorgeous women in the room until they landed on Maeve Donnelly, seated at Brendan’s feet.
He could almost HEAR Kana’i’s eyes bug out.
Never had seven weeks passed so quickly. It had been seven weeks of planning, continual long-distance phone calls, and booking an outdoor venue with only pictures and video to guide the decision-making process.
Remy and Kana’i had spent the morning getting the venue prepared for the wedding the next day. Remy was grateful for the distraction and the physical labor because he could concentrate on that and not his rampaging nerves.
On top of all that, he and Brendan had arrived in Maui to find Kani had grown considerably thinner and weaker. She had been fully dressed and smiling when they arrived, but the twins later confided that she had been spending more and more of her days in bed. She was ecstatic about the wedding, though, and about meeting Brendan’s family, who should have arrived by now.
The cousins walked up the front walk and to their surprise found their cousin Leilani sitting nervously on the front steps. She and her mother had gotten in a couple days before.
"Lani, what’s up? Why didn’t you go inside?"
Lani looked over her shoulder towards the front door. “There’s a bunch of fucking CLONES in there, Rem,” she declared dramatically.
"Clones?" Kana’i inquired with a raised brow, amused.
"Clones. They ALL look alike, Remy. Like a bunch of Irish Children of the Corn. And they’re so LOUD."
Remy and Kana’i grinned at one another. It would seem the Donnelly’s had arrived.
I always love opening my game to stuff like this x)
Yep, I do.
You might want to contemplate getting over it.
Sorry to clutter dashes with this, but seriously? What’s wrong with liking to write about a certain kind of love? I mean, I could get into the reasoning behind why I write this way and on this subject matter, but I’m not going to do that to pacify an anon.
Ah well, no matter what you do, someone is going to shit on it, I guess. I had fun with those pictures and doing my stories. I’m not trying to beat anything over anyone’s head. I just do what I do because I enjoy it and the ideas seem to come to me for it readily, and I have a lot of wonderful inspiration here.
Again, I apologize if this annoys anyone, I don’t mean it that way.
Remy studying his handiwork.
It’s really happening, sweet thing. You’re getting married.
I’m noticing my crushes don’t seem to vary that wildly…
RIGHT. now I know what you’re thinking - i’m over reacting - but I’m simply not. This has been going on for days now and that’s not even an exaggeration. I simply can not see anything on my dash other than this one hell of a long conversation that is being reblogged and added to by at least 3 to 5 different “simblrs”.
I have been kind enough to steer clear of tumblr for the past few days just because of this. There is absolutely no need for it, in fact, one might say, that you are only doing it for attention and to seem “cool”. well you don’t seem cool. you seem like a royal asshat who has no respect for others.
You want to have long lengthy chats as your sims? GET A FUCKING SKYPE ACCOUNT and go freaking nuts. go for freaking gold. no one cares.
Do your constant private things in a private area. ie: A CHATROOM? A group message? some where other than on your apparent simblrs.
A simblr should stay a simblr and talk about the Sims game, if you want to share something else , please leave us alone.
Same for the replies you can answer in private instead of on your dash.
I forgot to add something … let’s hear me instead of yelling at me as if I am a shitty person.
First I am not against that people likes other things that the sims game I like many variety of things else , your ignorance about me force you to say shit about me ,SHAME ON YOU ! Ask me why I don’t agree with you POLITELY except of being assholes.Solely people that follows me expect to find a simblr not an everyday blog I respect these kind of followers . Most of us are adult , stop acting like kids !
I stopped to follow non-sims blog because I felt the feeling that they follow me for fame and not for liking the sims game, they took me for a fool a couple of weeks because I always follow back… as they realised I don’t really care of them they unfollowed me… UNFOLLOW ME IF YOU THINK I AM NOT ENOUGH CLEVER OR NOT ENOUGH GOOD FOR BEING YOUR FOLLOWER BUT PLEASE STOP YELLING AT ME FOR NOTHING , LEAVE ME ALONE WITH MY OPINIONS AS I LEAVE YOU ALONE WITH YOURS ! THIS IS DEMOCRACY YOU LIKE GOVERNEMENTS NEVER REALLY KNOWS WHAT IS ABOUT TO BE A DEMOCRAT. YOU ATTACKED ME WITH NO REASONS I AM THE RIGHT TO BE IMPOLITE WITH THE IMPOLITE PEOPLE OK !!
This entire post is fucking rude. If non sims posts bothers you so much then just friggin unfollow omg, it ain’t that hard. You can also just blacklist that shit and block those so called simblrs that made you make this post in the first place. Damn.
What Jasmine said. Uncalled for and downright ridiculous. Simblr or not, people have a right to have conversations on their own damn blog. Maybe the people above should practice using the unfollow button themselves.
As someone who ALWAYS tags my non-sims posts, you know where you can stick your entitled attitude. I like to know my followers and follow-ee’s as people too, not just Sim-churning robots. When a bunch of simblrs started playing Animal Crossing like crazy, I didn’t care to see it, so you know what I did? BLACKLISTED any Animal Crossing related posts. Simple as. I didn’t make a picture pissing and moaning about it.
Just wanted to give everyone a quick update on sweet baby Hugo.
He is tolerating the chemo pretty well, the biggest problem being a lack of appetite. He temporarily had a feeding tube, but it was causing nosebleeds and they discontinued it. However, they seem to have found a solution in milkshakes, as you can see from the pic, Hugo is chugging one happily. Hopefully it puts a few much-needed pounds on him!
In good news, the lesions in his lungs have shrunk to the point of being no longer visible in scans, which is great! The kidney tumor also appears to be slightly smaller.
He starts another round of chemo today. Let’s send our love and good wishes in Hugo’s direction!
"What’s not to love? Brendan is everything that’s good and right in this world. I thank whatever deities there are everyday that I get to call him mine. He saved me." -Remy Mahelona
"Remy is the gentlest, most soulful person I’ve ever known. The attraction was instant, the love followed pretty quickly after. Every day it grows deeper." -Brendan Donnelly
"Tallan caught my attention from the moment I met him. That’s no small feat, believe me. I never gave much thought to love or even to wanting to be a good person. He makes me want to be better." -Shane West
"When I first met Shane, he was such an ass that I seriously wanted to punch him in the face, and I’m the quintessential pacifist. I found out later that that was his way of showing someone he liked them. So even though it didn’t get the most auspicious start, it ended up growing. He keeps me grounded." -Tallan Heieck
