go to sunday school, stop worrying about your looks, get some 3D glasses

My mom heard from Jessica in sunday school the other week an interesting thought that Jessica's grandmother had taught her: We will never see our selves as others do. never. because we can't see our selves in 3 dimensions. always only two. mirrors, photos, video, etc. we also rarely see famous people in 3 dimensions. so we just can never know. and we should really just give it a rest already. the whole obsessing over looks thing. most flaws are only noticeable to you and you aren't even seeing in full dimension so you don't know what it looks like. I mean, we can look at our hands and bodies. but even those views are distorted. and we can never look at our own face. basically, you're probably really pretty, so just don't worry about it.

so, T9 knows how to say 'coachella' but not 'salsa'?

T9 is so indie.

Cinnabon:Airports as Chocolate Milk:Road Trips

I don't know where it started (2003-hawaii trip with sarah?) but when I enter an airport, I instantly crave Cinnabon. I bought the Last One at the C gate Cinnabon tonight which made me feel So Lucky that i completely forgot about the Six Bucks i had just spent on mentos, sun chips and a rice krispy treat trying to replace cinnabon. like that's even possible. i know, it's sunday. but there are some sins too natural to deny yourself. i mean, look at it.

scarlett johansson is no norma jean

i watched this show about the greatest fashion icons in film on TLC today where they showed a classic icon and then today's equivalent. and i'm sorry, but it was just a joke. they don't make them like they used to, when will we get that? today's celebrities (i'm sorry gwyneth, you know i love you, but you aren't Grace Kelly) looked like cheap imitations. I mean, similar noses or the same chin, i can see, but pairing them as icons is a whole other ballgame. thank heavens they left Audrey 'in a class of her own' at #1. duh. anyway, here are some of the injustices:

is it just me, or do all rich females look the same?

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow said a lot of great things.

Here are some of them:

"However things may seem, no evil thing is success and no good thing is failure."

"A single conversation across the table with a wise man is better than ten years mere study of books."

"Every man has his secret sorrows which the world knows not; and often times we call a man cold when he is only sad."

"Give what you have to somebody, it may be better than you think."

"Resolve and thou art free."

"Into each life some rain must fall."

"Simplicity in character, in manners, in style; in all things the supreme excellence is simplicity."

"Talk not of wasted affection - affection never was wasted."

"Whenever nature leaves a hole in a person's mind, she generally plasters it over with a thick coat of self-conceit."

"Trust no future, however pleasant! Let the dead past bury its dead! Act - act in the living Present! Heart within and God overhead. "

Thoughts from an airport

-I love flying on airplanes
-Airplanes are so huge
-I hope I get a seat right by the wing
-is there seriously no Cinnabon in this place?
-This guy sitting next to me has officially stolen the title of Longest Femurs Ever
-I think I know you, girl over there. your name is Rachel and your brother would bring me junior mints and give me rides. Now you're both married. I think you got extensions, or maybe it's just been two years
-i wish that huge troop of boy scouts were getting on my plane. they're so cute. braces are so cute
-i can't believe that Chocolate Satin pie was such a bust
-Eli Vedder Anderson
-hmm, i wish i would have brought earphones for this ipod
-There are millions of people in this world. or billions, or whatever
-i never want to go to work again

i never want to live alone. this one night is too long for me. i hate living alone. i hate this. where is everyone?

i love disclaimers.

I think it's funny when people say 'you have good/great taste in music'

because good/great just = similar to my own

Things that distract me during work:

-the sound of peanut M&Ms being poured into a glass bowl in the kitchen. (this perks the ears of all in range-we're like cats)
-Dashboard Confessional/Coheed & Cambria/Garden State Soundtrack coming from Ryan's office
-water (from the lofts above) rushing down through the pipes right next to my desk
-my mind
-iChatting with the new intern Ryle (he thinks i'm cute. we might go to lunch. he is fictional.)
-Halo sound effects (you know: rocket launchers, hand grenades, general banter)
-Dan Christofferson
-the cell phone whose ringer is the same as Sandy Cohen's
-drinking ice water. i can't get over the ice machine. i love ice.
-general eavesdropping
-keeping a mental list of all the things that are distracting me

Hey Darling! What an adorable top!

Unless you are at least 75 years old (65 if you're related to me) please do not call me or my clothing or my shoes or my hair or my accessories darling, adorable, too cute, etc. You're nineteen! I'm twenty-two! You aren't my aunt, I'm not you're granddaughter. We don't talk like this.
