There are many things that I dream of doing with me life.. growing up to be Ellen DeGeneres is one of them.

Reasons why her job rocks:

1. She opens every show with an awesome dance where she runs up and down the audience and does things like sing to pregnant women's bellies ( which I think is hilarious)

2. She gets men and women alike to roar with laughter every show

3. She has at least one game played every episode. Today's was sheer brilliance. look it up, it's called the marshmallow game. It made me laugh so loud and for so long.

4. She talks to celebrities like they are her best friends ( if you know me, you know this would be a huge step.)

5. She never has a show entitled " fat suit" or "fathers gone mad" like Oprah or Dr. Phil, Ellen's show is pure entertainment.

Reasons why I could not be Ellen:

1. She is a lesbian.

What will Lean Cuisines buy me now?

Well I acheived my goal of eating lean cuisines for 3 weeks and saving up for certain items.

It's time for a new list..

Here are my two itens I am saving for... if you are rich you can go ahead and buy me them if you wish.

1. Paul Frank; Drawstring Beach Bag

2. I like you

Wonder-ful morning

I am pretty sure I saw Kevin's Dad ( Dan Lauria) from the wonder years, sitting at a bus stop this morning.

Granted, I had not had my coffee yet, I was really tired, and it was from quite far, but it was uncanny how much it looked like him.

No pepper.

*this is not my hand.

When I was little Dr. pepper chapstick was my favorite lip balm. I used it all the time. I think it was because as kids, we were not allowed to drink soda, so that was my only link to the carbonated world, but anyway... Everytime I used the chapstick it made me cough a little and my lips would tingle, therefore I always figured there was actual pepper in Dr. Pepper. Come to find out ( my senior year of high school) that there is not really pepper in the soda. I know what you're thinking..."wow katie, you're silly." But know this, today I found out my dear friend Juli also thought this for a majority of her life.

Here are the ingredients in case you were wondering;


Carbonated Water
High Fructose Corn Syrup and/or Sugar
Caramel Color
Phosphoric Acid
Artificial and Natural Flavors
Sodium Benzoate (Preservative)

No pepper.

Not to post twice in one minute, but this picture deserves a blog post. Where is he when I am trying to carry up water to my apartment?

This is creepy....

Probably the creepiest thing I have seen in a while.

Hot Mess

I made some popcorn...

It's pretty simple really, take the bag out of the plastic, place in the microwave, press "popcorn" and wait until the beep.

It can't go wrong, can it?


Billowing smoke, terrible smells, and no popcorn to munch on.

Pop fiction is pop-tastic

Avril Lavigne pregnant? Paris Hilton becoming a buddha? I thought they were true because I read all about them on celebrity blogs, but they are both fake. How do I know, oh just a little show called POP FICTION on E!

Best show of all time. Celebs playing pranks on the paparazzi. How has this not been done before? Every week two celebs will go out into public displaying some sort of different behavior and then of course the rumors will start. To find out which ones were false, just watch POP FICTION on E! Sunday nights at 10:30.

I am officially addicted.

Is it real or is it pop fiction? Great job Ashton....genious.

That's Major!

I have a confession. I have a secret obsession with Victoria Beckham. She quite honestly rules. If anyone saw project runway last night, you will understand. I own both books she has written and purchased the ELLE magazine with her on the front the day it hit news stands. I find her to be fascinating. Plus, she is married to David Beckham, how bad could she be?

Just thought I would share... Who do you have a secret obsession with?

serious starbucks bling

This post is for the unblogger, Allison Mc.

We ventured to starbucks today for a little afternoon pick me up and I was nearly blinded to death by a womans wedding ring. It was so big I had to point it out to Allison. The stone itself took up literally the space from her knuckle to her hand, it was outrageous.

Then we got to thinking, that cannot be real, can it?

These were our thoughts on this mysterious lady and her ring...

If it is real

#1. Her husband has a serious complex.
#2. She needs to have a personal bodyguard at all times.
#3. If your ring does not fit in your pocket with your hand, its way too big.
#4. You have too much money to be in Lake Forest ordering from a starbucks, send your butler from the hamptons out to get fresh coffee from costa rica.

If it is fake

#1. You need to get a life and stop wearing fake giant wedding rings.
#2. Possibly get therapy for your need for attention.
#3. You fooled us.

**picture is not real, but seriously is actual size.

Who do you know me as?

So at work I have some pretty great nicknames... just thought I would share some of them with you, along with their origins...

"Shady Cannon"- Dom affectionately named me this. He is German and sometimes confuses words. He tells me that when he drives by Shady Canyon, he always thinks of me.

"Katie girl"- Jamie McNeff has always called me this and I love it...

"Toby" This one I can't explain. Sorry.If you know me, you can ask me.

"Drama" If you watch Rob and Big then you know who Drama is and you know his duty in life, to serve Rob. Well I think that I serve Ryanne at work and so she calls me Drama... lovingly of course. I love to do the hunchback motion when she requests it of me.. she doesn't understand the humor in it.

"Shanghai" Taffy calls me this, he appreciates my newly acquired "asian-ness"

I also thought I would add in this jewel, just to lift your spirits...

Do you?
