A Case of Mistaken Identity

John: "So, wasn't that movie awesome?!"

Katherine: "A lot better than I expected it to be."

Sariah: "I can't remember the last time I laughed that hard in a theater!"

Katherine (lies across front of car) : "Ugh, how long is mom going to take?"

Sariah: "Forever."

*beep beep*

John: "Yay! At least she unlocked the car."

Katherine (about to open door when she notices two very confused people behind them): "Oh, is this your car?"

Two Very Confused People: "Uh-huh."

Katherine (stifling laughter): "Sorry! Ours look exactly the same!"

Sariah (laughing uncontrollably): "There it is! Three spots down!"

Katherine: "That's embarrassing."

Smile, it's the weekend!

You made it through another week, well done. Now watch one of the best SNL videos ever, laugh til your stomach hurts, and have a great weekend.

No more Killers

Tragedy has struck the perfect town of Eden Prairie. It's horrible, I know. I was supposed to be rockin' out at The Killers' concert in England with my sister and brother, but the tickets are too expensive. One-hundred and twenty-five pounds! Two-hundred fifty bucks, for the cheapest tickets! Crazy, I know. Now I am going to miss out on this awesomeness (make sure to click the link so you don't miss out on one of the best music videos with a green caterpillar-type thing ever!) Moral of this sad story, not only will I miss out on a brillant concert, but now I will not be able to marry Brandon Flowers. a. because he is already married and b. now I will never meet him. On to my next candidate: Sufjan Stevens, the coolest guy to ever play a banjo.

Midsummer Awesomeness

Friday night I went to see A Midsummer Night's Dream and it was amazing! I went by myself (I swear I'm not a loner) and made friends with two old ladies who laughed at all the dirty jokes with me. The fairies had dreads and mohawks and were totally punk rockers. Some of the lines were sung and it was really well done. Oh, and the best part was when Oberon, the king of the fairies, made his entrance by zip-lining down from the balcony to the stage. Yeah, I was kinda in love.

Word of the day

schadenfreude \SHOD-n-froy-duh\, noun:
Enjoyment obtained from the misfortunes of others.

I have not managed to pull off using this word, the people I talk to keep giving me weird looks. They either don't know what it means, are surprised that I do, or I totally force the word into the conversation and everyone gets confused. I guess schadenfreude doesn't really have anything to do with swimming or going to a movie. Unless the swimmer's suit falls off and the person at the movie trips and spills their drink on their shirt. That would definitely call for some schadenfreude.
Now you go use schadenfreude in your next conversation. I dare you.

Cupcake Bliss

Can a day get better than when it involves buying new shoes and baking cupcakes? I doubt it. Unless you add sky diving and visiting a different country, which is kinda obvious. Laura showed me this great recipe for cherry-vanilla cupcakes and they are to die for! They have a cherry filling in them and are so cute. Go bake them. Now. You will not regret it. Earlier in the day Leslie and I went shopping for a shirt and I came back with new shoes. That's what happens when I walk into the mall via Macy's shoe section. But the shoes are b-e-a-utiful and make me smile. Now I need to go buy some clothes to match the heels.

Musical Euphoria

Last night Sariah and I got to go see Iron & Wine! Yay! *Happy Dance* They are brilliant and one of my favorite bands of all-time. If you don't know them, you need to fix that. Even though we were one of the last people to show up we managed to squeeze our way up to the front and had an awesome view. The concert was so much better than I was expecting which is pretty impressive because I had high expectations. I contemplated just following them to their next show which is in Iowa, but I decided that might be a little too stalkerish. Also, it would have cost a fortune thanks to the gas prices. $4.10 a gallon? What is that about?

Above: Sam Beam in all his wonderfulness.
Below: Sam Beam with two of his band members. I didn't get a good picture of all of them, but these are the main ones.

Meet Winston

I guess I should start at the beginning. Ruthie sent me beautiful flowers for my birthday. Thanks Ruthie! When they died and I was cleaning out the vase, I realized it would make a perfect fish bowl. So Sariah and I took a trip to the pet store. Twenty minutes and ten dollars later, we had a new member of the family, Winston! He's awesome, especially when he is attempting to kill his reflection. Silly Winston. He also does tricks. Fine, he only knows one trick so far, but it's a great one. He gives kisses! Oh the cuteness! The only sad part to this otherwise wonderful story is that we move to London in two months, and I don't think Winston could handle that long flight very well. So either he will be relocating to the sewers, or someone here can adopt him. Any takers?
