Kid knees

Today I was telling my niece about a friend of mine who likes to eat things that I would classify under the category: gross...never gonna happen. He likes things like cows tongue, liver, something called "bloater" (no idea what that is) and kidneys. When I mentioned kidney Kate looked at me in horror and said "people eat that?". I told her yes and she looked at me then grabbed her knees.....she thought I meant "kid knees" as in Stephen snatches little kids so he can eat their knees for dinner. Great stuff.

You've got mail!

My new shiny passport arrived in the mail today! Needless to say I was very excited, but also concerned. The new ones don't have your picture on the front cover it's on the first page....making it very easy to rip out the most important page. Secondly they did not send back my old passport! The one with all the cool stamps from the Czech Republic, Norway, France, England and all the other places I've visited! It's like my whole travel history has been taken away and now I'm left with this boring empty passport......with a better picture of me and some new chip embedded in it. I guess I'll just have to fill it up all over again.....pity. :)

It's like porn.....for those with OCD

It's my day off today and I was trying to decide what to do. The list for today included mail something to Jill, drop off my dad's shirts to the dry cleaners, look for more black clothing....Macy's uniform, workout and visit the new HUGE Container Store. To prep for my visit I even went to the website to look at pretty pictures of organized spaces....I know I'm a sad sad girl. Long story short I did all of the things on the list EXCEPT visit organizational heaven. Am I the only one who gets excited by these images? Someone please validate me so I feel a little less like a freak.....I'm totally going there on my next day off.

To quote Rachel, "It's so pretty!"

Who needs food when your pantry is that perfect.

Macy's Moment

I had the following conversation with someone at work today:

Jane: Kristi, you have really beautiful eyes.
Kristi: Thanks
Jane: You should wear makeup to highlight them more
Kristi:.....I am wearing makeup

Well today I have a phone interview with the Intermuseum Conservation Association (ICA). Send out some good vibes.....and pray this interview has no resemblance of my last interview.

So I was perusing my parents most recent copy of AARP magazine....which had Dustin Hoffman on the cover when I came across a list of people who are turning 50 this month. I had to do a double take because much to my surprise Flavor Flav was on that list. Seriously.....this dude is about to be 50? Was I the only one who thought he was like 35? What very little respect I had for him was quickly lost once this information was acquired.
