So the other day I was talking with some coworkers and we were reminiscing about all the technology that started to come about and remembering where we were when it all happened. Remember when the only thing we could really do on computers was type up a document on a blue screen and absolutely no font options? And the only games we had were stuff like Oregon Trail and Paper Boy? And then we got internet and it was a miracle. I remember when the internet was so stinking slow! Remember the sound it made when you tried to log on? And what in the heck did we used to do on the internet? Chat rooms? Email? There really was nothing else interesting to do was there? My mom banned chat rooms and required that I give her the password to my email account so she could check it regularly. There was a long period of time where I didn't even know the password to the internet - my mom had to log me on!
I remember my very first email account: and old childhood (and beyond) friend, James Marshall, set it it up for me... It was firstname.lastname@example.org and I was 13. Yes. I was the 54th hot babe to sign up for hotmail. Amazing really. I did not have a cell phone until after high school. I knew only 1 person who had and iPod, and it was one of those huge chunky ones with the 5 buttons on the front. I remember the first time he let me see it - I was so envious. It's funny to think that now my beautiful iPhone does pretty much anything I need (there's an app for that).
So what are things going to be like in 5 years? 10 years? What are my children going to have as just normal technologies in their lives?

I say it to people and if they are SUPER cool, they know what movies I'm quoting from. It's kind of what you would call my own personal coolness meter for people I associate with. Do you remember what movies that line is from? Those movies were my childhood.
Enjoy this little video clip.

I knew the show was something special/genius when they revealed that one of the main characters, Robin, was a Canadian teen pop star. How funny is that? Well then the deal was sealed when they showed a couple of her music videos from back in the 80's... They are just so stinking funny! I could watch them over and over and over. Everyday. I hope you like them as much as I do. Everyday.

By the way, Paper Heart looks like my kind of movie. I can't wait.

In honor of my most favorite posties, here are some cute vids:
Sorry for the lameness of this post today... at least it's something, eh?

Even my brothers love it. They love it so much that they now video chat even though their offices are a foot apart. Oh the brotherly love.

This shirt is selling like hotcakes (I don't fully agree with this expression... I don't really love pancakes hotcakes... anything that will take away from the room in my belly for bacon and syrup.... But I'll use the phrase anyway because it's catchy and I do what I want) on Amazon.com right now. Like 1000 a day. Nuts, huh? Well, I think it's all because of this crazy influx of customer reviews. It all started with a review done by a man who may possibly be the funniest man on the planet. After reading his review, I want one of these magical shirts. Do NOT tell me that you are not convinced, too, after reading this:
This item has wolves on it which makes it intrinsically sweet and worth 5 stars by itself, but once I tried it on, that's when the magic happened. After checking to ensure that the shirt would properly cover my girth, I walked from my trailer to Wal-mart with the shirt on and was immediately approached by women. The women knew from the wolves on my shirt that I, like a wolf, am a mysterious loner who knows how to 'howl at the moon' from time to time (if you catch my drift!). The women that approached me wanted to know if I would be their boyfriend and/or give them money for something they called mehth. I told them no, because they didn't have enough teeth, and frankly a man with a wolf-shirt shouldn't settle for the first thing that comes to him.
I arrived at Wal-mart, mounted my courtesy-scooter (walking is such a drag!) sitting side saddle so that my wolves would show. While I was browsing tube socks, I could hear aroused asthmatic breathing behind me. I turned around to see a slightly sweaty dream in sweatpants and flip-flops standing there. She told me she liked the wolves on my shirt, I told her I wanted to howl at her moon. She offered me a swig from her mountain dew, and I drove my scooter, with her shuffling along side out the door and into the rest of our lives. Thank you wolf shirt.
Pros: Fits my girthy frame, has wolves on it, attracts women Cons: Only 3 wolves (could probably use a few more on the 'guns'), cannot see wolves when sitting with arms crossed, wolves would have been better if they glowed in the dark.
Amazing, right? I know! Other reviewers have left their funny replies and follow-ups to this, but this one tops them all. LOVE. Some people have gone as far as making a spoof video about this amazing shirt and shirt review. So random!
So who's with me? Let's all get matching wolf shirts!
I witnessed this very last weekend, in the flesh, a woman wearing the 3 Wolf Moon shirt. And let me tell you - she absolutely SHOULD have been wearing it. How is this shirt just so amazingly white trash??

Can we all just agree that this is the most sweetest little toddler picture ever??
Are you seeing that face? Sheesh, so cute.
Total babeness even at 14. She wins.
While building our house. Look at her hair. Look at baby Aaron. That's all I'm gonna say.

Did you read Kite Runner? If you haven't yet, do it. I'm serious. It was amazing. I won't talk too much about that because I read that book a while ago. The book I just read is the next book that Khaled Hosseini wrote - A Thousand Splendid Suns. I really loved this book because it focused on the lives of women in Afganistan rather than the men. The story follows two women over a span of several years and portrayed what they have gone through in the last 30 years with leadership changes and violent war and what that meant to the way they lived on a day to day basis. Families were ripped apart through carnage and death... but no matter what situation they found themselves in - they could find love and family in the people that shared their circumstance. The book starts out kind of slow and for a bit you wonder where it could be going, but then it starts to pick up with emotional events that keep you totally involved. I loved this book and I absolutely recommend it.

And if you buy those, you certainly HAVE to buys these sexy jeans to wear with them:

Ok weird. Stop. My children may read this someday... WEIRD! Hey kiddies! You're cute!
Anywho - His music videos ARE my childhood. I love that some of them were mini movies where Michael is portrayed as a BAD-A. I love that he looks so creeperish and feminine while he's trying to proclaim his masculinity. An other random thing I remember when I think if MJ is the Simpson's fat white guy who thought he was MJ. Remember him? Loved him. Oh, and moonwalking IS my childhood. Full on.
Really, it is so weird that he is dead! Goodbye, Michael, you crazy Son-of-a-Gun. I cry at night because I never got to see you live in concert.
Here is a smattering of my favorite videos:
Michael Jackson - Bad (Full Version)
Uploaded by love_sofia. - Watch more music videos, in HD!
Oh, sweet little Wesely Snipes.
I love that besides his ghost self, MJ plays the white guy... funny.
My friends in high school always talked about doing a remake of this - we had all the requirements: a boy that could dance like MJ and a Japanese girl. Done.
Michael Jackson - Beat It
Uploaded by sofresh305. - Watch more music videos, in HD!
Did one of those guys look exactly like t pain? I love this one, well, because the Pilkingtons did a remake of it that was phenomenal - am I right, Mikey P? I think in their version, they filmed the fight scene behind the strip mall thing that is now the Winegar's parking lot. The closest thing to an actual alley in Bountiful... ha ha. If I could get a copy of it, I'll definitely post it for you. Oh, the Zoolander remix version of this song is great. Check that out if you can.
I am sorry... but this video is just amazing. Called out by James Brown himself. I mean come on!!!! To just step out of the crowd and bust it out like that? MJ is legendary. And Prince??? Carried up to the stage by some burly old white guy? AWESOME. I love that both MJ and Prince are all dressed up in their concert going best. In the end this thing turns out to be more of a Prince video, but cool that Michael was so famous and black at one time...
And this one because HE MOONWALKS LIKE A GOD. This is his debut of moon walking during Motown's 25th anniversary.
And of course... THRILLER! Because I personally believe that MJ is a FULL ON BABE in this video. If he had just stopped with the surgeries at this point... if only. And the special effects are great. Funny, the other day I was reading an article about the girl in this video - playboy centerfold Ola Ray - "Where is she now?" I guess now she's some 48 year old crack whore who is in the poor house. This surprises people because she was in one of the greatest music videos of all time. She said she saw no money except her one time paycheck. MJ kept all the royalties... and now he's dead. Go figure.
Ok, that's all. See ya, MJ.

This is Soph lovin' on some of her rice. Cuuuute!
I prefer to get it with their yummy mashed potatoes. To DIE for, I swear it!
Please go or ask me to go ANYTIME and tell me what you think of it! That's the great thing about TCF is that not only do they have the best cheesecake, they also have great gourmet meals.
I think the best part of this particular trip to TCF, and I'm sure Sophie would agree... was the very good looking guy seated at the table next to us. He was my soul mate and I'm pretty sure that if I had enough guts to walk up to him that day... we would be married by now. Pretty sure.

Rachel McAdams will be Clare... Perfect.
Eric Bana will play Henry - Which I really really like. What a versatile actor, huh? Last role he played was... the Star Trek villain? Nice.
Even the little girl Clare is perfectly cast.
From the trailer, it seems to me that they are taking it down a different road than the book does. Major character changes have been made, especially in Clare. I guess they have to change things up a bit to keep things interesting - especially on the big screen. Well, the movie comes out in August and I cannot wait! If you read the book and want to go see the movie with me, let me know!
Here is the trailer. I was so excited when it finally came out.

I'm not that huge into popular rap, but I am in love with Radiohead. So naturally anything involving Radiohead... I'm gonna love. Check out this amazing album mixed by Minty Fresh Beats. Go to the link and have a listen, or download the whole album (clean, too). I've had this for about 6 months, and I don't get sick of it. It's awesome stuff.

If I could bottle any smell and make it my own personal and signature perfume, it would be the smell of Barnes & Noble.
I love shoes more than breathing. As my brother, Aaron, would say to me: "Katie, you have more shoes than days left to live." My shoe fetish is a direct result of my mother's shoe fetish. She loves shoes more than her own life.
I love tomatoes. I could eat them all day. I am a tomato person.I enjoy violent testosterone charged movies. You're welcome, Nate.
I would kill to have redheaded babies.
I have heartburn almost everyday.
I would love to live on Prince Edward Island.
I have never had a cold sore, but I always get cankers.
I'm semi-in-love with my cat, Atticus.
I love seeing semi trucks without a trailer on the freeway - they look so funny!
I'm obsessed with interior design magazines. I love to cut out my favorite chairs, colors, patterns, accessories, room combos.... what will I ever do with these random clippings? I don't know yet.
I love photo editing. I may take things a step further someday and take a photography class.
If I could sing like anyone... It would have to be a tie between the lead singer of The Cranberries, Dolores O'Riordan and Annie Lennox. I would make you call me Crannie Lennox.
I could play Bejewelled all day.
My all time favorite radio stations are KRCL 90.9 and Classical 89.1.
I love candy. I LOVE candy.
If I could, I would live in JCrewland where everyone is classy and stylish. I would drive around in my old-fashioned cars, play croquet, go boating with my super classy and super hot hubby on my own personal lake. Everyday.
I don't drink pop... not usually. I'll take a Fresca if you have it. And I do love ginger ale - it reminds me of being on an airplane, it reminds me of my dad, and also makes you burp like a freaking champion.
I prefer rainy days.
I sometimes get confused when asked to turn left or right while driving. So sue me. So much pressure!
My dream someday is to get my four front teeth all veneered up. (The front four are in a state of disrepair - I've chipped them up so badly throughout my life. But I've worked at dentist offices all my life and they have set me up pretty good until I have the $$$$$ for new teeth. Thank you, old bosses! I owe you!)
Some of my most favorite memories are having dance parties with just my little brother in his room. We are awesome.
I hate Celine Dion... I think she is a creeper. But her new album, Taking Chances... It simply rocks my world.
I could watch Masterpiece Theater Classics until I die. I love them. I love PBS.
I am a horrible pop singer. I really am. That is why I'll never ever do American Idol. If they ever have Opera Idol, I'm in.
My heart beats for Mason Jennings.
I have a loud/shrill voice on the phone (I'm told), sorry.
My middle name is Floy. For real. After my Grandma on my dad's side and my great grandma on my mom's side.
I'm pretty right winged politically. Of my own choice, thank you very much. I ain't ignorant.
I love my little car. With all of my heart.
I want to be Gwen Stefani. She rules.
I want at least 6-8 children. Husband? Are you out there?
I love wearing heals. To be stomping around at 6' or 6'1'' is exhilarating.
I'm a mac girl.
I was born a blonde, and I will continue to be blonde... even if I have to fake it a little.
I love to read. Anything.
I love my family more than anything. More than shoes I think.

I just had an eye exam and they dilated my pupils. I left and put the super cool glasses on to protect my eyes, and for a second I thought I actually looked pretty cool. Don't they make regular sunglasses like this now for all the cool kids?
Me and Kristin a few years ago.
Lastly, I'd like to dedicate this sweet music video to Kristin. I love you, girl.
