Good Advice

This is the best fortune/proverb/advice that I think I've ever been given on a small piece of paper from the inside of a cookie:

This inspires me to do something unexpected... like move somewhere I've always wanted to live... or open my own business. It makes me wonder if I have the courage to do it and if I have what it takes to truly be uncomfortable for once. The outcome could suck, but at the same time, it could be amazing... Things to ponder.

Things That Are Ridiculous, Part 4,291

Two Words: Heidi Montag

Summary: Gross. Not long until she looks like that crazy cat lady, or worse... Joan Rivers or EVEN WORSE, Priscilla Presley (I say that with the utmost respect, Pri).

On another note, I leave in a week for Sundance. I have purchased warm boots, warm gloves, and long johns. I need to borrow a fuzzy hat with ear flaps from Sass, but other than that, I am set. Word.

Major Differences Between Sue and I

Recent conversation via 'text' that my mother and I had:

Kate: "Mom, which Beatle was your favorite?"
Mom: "Paul"
Kate: "Why didn't you like George?"
Mom: "He wasn't as cute and didn't say much."
Kate: "You are so superficial!"

Also, I mentioned that I was ashamed of her after mentioning that George is just like KEITHY! (With the exception of the 'not cute' part). If you have no idea who we are talking about (which, shame on you) here are some photos:

Precious Georgie, whom I was told that James Burton said that he was 'kind'. What a nice description! I believe it. Also, I can NEVER hear enough of his version of "Here Comes the Sun" (which he wrote) so I am certain that this describes him perfectly... bless.

And here's ole Paulie who ended up marrying Peg Leg Mills. Nice judge of character you've got there. Well I guess he's done some cool stuff too, but just doesn't compare to sweet Georgie.

Who's your fave?

Tired of Sleeping... is it possible?

So, I got this Memory Foam mattress cover thing for Christmas from John. I Love it! The only problem is that I never want to leave the bed. I mean really, I've been sleeping 13-14 hour nights. I must pull myself together here. I've been off work since the 23rd and I am sick and tired of doing nothing. It's like a shut in vacation or something. (Some asshats call it a 'staycation'.) I've made a semi-permanent indentation in my couch. Oops. This is why we can't have nice things.

So, my NY Resolution isn't health related to avoid disappointing myself... instead, I've decided to redo my bedroom and do a little something with my hair. I want to paint my bedroom this color:

And try to dye my hair with a semi-permanent this color (nice kinky boots, Cross):

We will see if these things actually happen, but at least I've given myself a reasonable timeline to do these things. 1 year. Ready, set, color changes.
