Happy New Year!
Some amazing things have already happened this year, so let me fill you in, via music video, of course.
In addition to having a great time (thank you Andrea!), I learned many important things on the West coast.
1. People in Pacific time zone don’t get their own New Year’s countdowns – they watch repeats of East coast countdowns. Upon realizing this, I felt embarrassed for them.
2. If you are looking for pearls in oyster shells, you must choose fat, round oyster shells.
3. Divine Delights is the most aptly named pastry company, ever. Their petit fours are amazing, and I have already ordered their catalog so I can order them next holiday season.
So, then, I vowed to get a haircut: it was 90% cheaper than getting a makeover. Here is a picture – notice the layers and change of length. The new cut also brings out my strongest facial features, which were previously overshadowed by my longer hair length. Nice, yes?2 Comments

Hello Loyal Readers!
The holiday season is upon us, which means we have many a holiday party to attend, and many a conversation to have. And what better gift can I give you than an outstanding conversation piece? That was a rhetorical question, of course. Conversation pieces are the best gift ever.
Drumroll please: I give you…. the knowledge necessary to read palms. That’s right – after viewing this video, you will be able to read the life lines on palms. So, if you are standing around, chatting with people, and silence ensues, you may politely say, “Oh! You know, I recently learned a little about palm reading. May I?” and then reach for someone’s left hand.
Now, conventionally, you would only view the how-to video. Maybe you would retain the information, but you probably wouldn’t.
What I am about to give you is more than just an instructive video. This video is INTERACTIVE!
What does that mean? Duh! It means that you will learn more from the video the first time around because it forces you to prove you are paying attention and keeps you engaged.
Let me know your thoughts, and of course, Merry Happy!

Hey! Sorry I’ve been MIA for a week.
This is an animoto video I made for David. What do you think? Isn’t it beautiful? And it’s totally not creepy.
Connor, I was thinking I would make one for you too. It will be to the tune of “Hate is Strong Word, but I Really, Really, Really Don’t Like You” by the Plain White Tees.One Comment

“If there’s two things America needs right now, it’s sunshine and optimism…and also angels.”
I love Glee so much. The episode last night was about taking performance enhancing over-the-counter drugs, so keep an eye on how much energy the lead singer has. It’s brilliant acting. It’s such a great show!Leave a Comment

Remember how I was abroad a few months ago? And remember how I love stop-motion? Well I made a stop-motion commemorating the summer trip! Now, mine isn’t very good, and the words are blurry because I went about creating the text scroll in a rudimentary way, but it still took me forever to make. I realize it’s small, but the file was so big it was the only way I could negotiate maintaining image quality. No more excuses, now you must enjoy!
