i've been playing a lot of rock band lately and i'd like to know

Why does a girl band have to be way better than a guy band does to not be considered ridiculous?

if morning after hair is any indication of the preceding birthday night,

(And I think we all know that it most certainly is)
Then I had a reeeeally great birthday.
I like my friends and family a whole lot.

I saw New Moon last night. I feel like a hypocrite. I didn't hate it. It was very entertaining. And embarrassing. Jacob wins. Vampires dress cute. The music ruled. I still have no desire to read the books or see the first movie. So I'm only a half-blood traitor?

Steals of the Week Pt. 1

Urban was very kind to me the other day. Extra 50% off all home sale stuff AKA Happy Birthday Kate! I'll probably show you everything I got cuz I love them all. We'll start with the pretty, pretty calculator on my desk. Original price: $28. My price: $2.50. Do I need a calculator on my desk? No. Sometimes is the sole function of an item to make me happy when I look at it/push its buttons? Yes. Is it kind of a mean trick to stick a solar-powered calculator in this basement with me? Yes.

my room has no heat, the rest of the house has no internet

Missing these bunnies double today

Look at em! I don't know how I couldn't

And here comes the snow




*and suddenly the electric starter in Kip's (from Spanish 3800 or whatever) giant truck doesn't seem so ridiculous.

I could really go for a slice right now OR This is mostly for my mom and sisters

I don't know what to say about New York besides that I loved it and I haven't stopped thinking about it since I got back. I wanna go there worse now then I did before I ever went. So that's dangerous. Overall: there was perfect weather and perfect company and perfect surroundings. And now I'll show you a million pictures. (Big thank you, Heather, for taking a million pictures.) I guess I'll just go by day.

Day One:

Carrie, Eric and I are the only Blondes in this city.
I like eye contact way too much for this city.
Subways stopping and making us take a bus aren't cool.
Times Square is just a giant Vegas.
Not impressed (is anyone surprised?)

bryant park rules

carrie's dream of meeting john stamos—realized. (After we saw him perform in Bye Bye Birdie. He totally double-took her and also told her 'she's tall' and signed her program. The play was kinda just so-so.)

Day Two:
Learning how not to smile at people.
Not everywhere's as dirty as Times Square.
If I don't move to the Brooklyn Bridge, The High Line is my 2nd choice.
I'd like to spend about 3 weeks walking around Central Park/Museums.
My body hurts.
I'm completely sold on this place. (oh, so that changed? weird.)

Chelsea market

Just a building. There are tons of these there.

View from the High Line-I could stare at this for probably 9 days and not get bored.

Staten Island Ferry. Really great lighting for a group shot.

Envelopes in the MET!

Ancient temple in the MET!

Gossip Girls

Central Park

This guy

Central Park

Happy friends

Day Three:
Stone cold face wherever I went! Obviously I was a natural.
Cupcakes for breakfast. Pizza for lunch. Pizza for dinner.
Flirting with Letterman employees.
Ground zero.
Yes, I wore that obnoxious bow in my hair for some portion of every day.
Strand Bookstore-I adore you.
Schlepping to Brooklyn.
Best night.

We saw this. With Bill Murray

"So we're in Italy and this guy just turns around and starts yelling at us..."

Grimaldi's Pizza

Manhattan, from Brooklyn

Our long-legged tour guides and their city

Heather loves this one. (so do i)

Day Four:

I can't believe it's our last day.
I might cry when we leave.
Let's go to 5th Avenue.

Grand Central Station

We spent a lot of time down here

and on here (so what if my feet don't touch the ground)

our puke green hostel walls

And that's New York! There are like 900 more pictures where these came from. And that's literally. My list of places to go next time is growing rapidly. In fact, I will probably start sending my headshot around so i can be booking some gigs there pretty soon.


having an oatmeal chocolate chip cookie for breakfast is basically like having a bowl of oatmeal for breakfast? I made em with whole wheat flour?

i want to live on the brooklyn bridge

new york was a dream.

liquid assets

I think I just feel better having a few things around with their tags still on and receipts nearby so that I can return them if I ever need to.

Like if I need some money for food and transportation and lodging in New York City this weekend. Oh I didn't tell you I'm going to New York? Maybe because we just bought tickets yesterday and that's about as far as we've gotten on the planning besides that this is going to be the cheapest New York trip in history. And the most rad. Kinda stoked outta my mind.

Nov 5, 2009

Could I get in trouble for this?

can I be you?
oh hey, courtney
man or woman?
still don't believe you exist
you're cute

i like your hat

Courtney is probably yelling 'FINALLY' at her computer right now

It's taking me a long time but I'm slowly learning that when dealing with young adults, I should just say yes to everything because only like 20% of it will really happen anyway and then I seem like a laid back agreeable person.

it's my birthday month

{cough cough}

why kids rule

I think they finally like me

She did this for a solid 20 minutes

My Halloween was probably better than yours?

don't tell his dad we painted his nails

so unimpressed

somehow remains squishy no matter how skinny he gets

turns out the sun does shine in oregon

cool eyeliner, i know

someday i hope i'm as pretty as isabelle


{sad but true}
