2010 was fun.

My dear readers,
So sorry about the lack of updates in the last week. I have been enjoying my Christmas break at home with my family and friends. Hopefully the snow, deer and ethanol give me the fuel I need to ring in the new year with a bang. New posts resuming January 3rd. 

Love and miss you all! Thank you for your encouragement and kind words.

Positive endings and happy beginnings,

Sometimes I'm just too lazy to let myself be inspired.

A Portrait Series of whom I do not know | 002: William the "Jellyfish" McDonald

William got a nine when he took the enneagram test. His CD player is currently stocked with Kid Rock, The Eagles and Rilo Kiley. He found the Rilo Kiley (More Adventurous) album a few years ago on the ground and assumed it was a gift from God. And it was. William is a celiac, though he does not know it. He once met Kathy Lopez at a speed dating session. Though he wrote down her number, she did not return the favor and the two have never been spotted together since.

A Portrait Series of whom I do not know | 001: KATHY LOPEZ

Here is Kathy's sitiation (pronounced: sitch-E-A-shun, like Jane Lynch said it in Party Down):
Though she does like Panchero's, she received the nickname from her peers after her father opened the first "Panchy's" in Northeast Kansas. Kathy also likes Laguna Beach (seasons one and two, of course), winking as a flirting mechanism and the cilantro salsa from H-E-B. She has a tattoo that says, "live laugh love" in Latin on her—you guessed it—inside ankle. Though she'd never admit it, she did play the Big Willie Style CD to and from work everyday so she could learn all the words in hopes to throw down some sick beats at karaoke.

* If you can guess where this is drawn, I will either give you three bear hugs, fifteen high fives or one copy of my Superstar Christmas CD.

saggy and baggy

This happens when you wear your jeans throughout the day and they stretch (a lot). Though I hate it, I do not hate it as much as Brie Nickels does. She coined the term, "poopy butt" in-spite of the problem.

Surprise: Father Time!

I read something that said time is the best gift you can ever give. I completely agree.

Soooo....I am going ot be more intentional about making time for time. However it may be. Not wasting. Just giving.

If you get this, then you probably think it is very funny.
