Wisdom from my Mother

"Again, I love you every minute. It doesn’t matter if you “fall apart so much.” That’s part of you. Like eating too much at Thanksgiving, it’s going to happen. We have to try to protect ourselves from letting it happen. If we can’t then we just need to minimize the times it happens or the issue itself by protecting ourselves by wearing an elastic waistband."

Dear 2009

yes, hello there. It’s Kat. you may know me from such years as 1986, 2004, 1776 and 2008. I just wanted to give you a heads up that so far, these past three months? You have failed at being as awesome as promised.

Proof: [edited list]

* 3 friends in the hospital in 3 months
* Moving out of 202
* Nate losing his house
* Chelsea losing her house
* Chelsea’s guinea pigs
* Jesse needing to move away
* Damaging my articulated cartilage in my knee
* My computer exploding inside
* Phuongs surgery
* Pati’s turning into a piece of shit college bar
* a bad hair cut
* Bing’s Grandma dying
* Bing’s family trying to steal her dead G-Ma’s ashes
* Ryans intestine exploding
* losing $40 on the bus when I wasnt even drunk

I could go on, 2009, but I think Ive proven my point fairly well. Granted a few good things have come out of these past three months but dude - not nearly enough to make up for it. And thats just in the sphere of influence that directly affects me. There is so much more, you know?

Please shape up? We have 9 more months of you and I need them to turn around really badly. Thank you.

(I was going to end this with “No Love, Kat” but instead I think I will end it as follows, 2009, because it seems more accurate.)

With hope,

Westly: Shouldn't you be in school young lady?
Kat: haha!
final turned in yesterday
instead i am working! (shhh! dont tell!)
Westly: Work it girl!
Kat: hahah!
i do what i can
i would much rather be out in the sun, however
Westly: Ah yes, the warm sun. I need to take my car to San Jose to get it worked on but I really don't feel like it.
Kat: eww
Westly: Id b stuck in San Jose for the afternoon
Kat: there is nothing there worth it, either
Westly: er be.
There are a few museums that are cool
And Original Joe's Italian is really nice.
Kat: oh! the jewmu is there isnt it?
Westly: But those are all spread out... and I don't feel like going.
I was thinking the Tech museum or the Rosacrutian.
Kat: oh man! rosacrutian for sure!
Westly: I KNOW! First Tuesday of every month its FREE
Ive been there 3 times in my life.
Kat: ive been once? twice? both times on school field trips that gave us not NEARLY enough time
Westly: If I wasn't going to drop off my car to have it worked on at a friends shop, I would totally be into going there.
But I don't want to waste my afternoon doing that.
I should just bite the bullet and take it some place close.
Kat: hurrr
why do you go all the way to san jose?
(unintentional rhyme oh gosh)
Westly: the drummer for our band has a shop there.
And nice use of hurrr
Kat: hahaha
Westly: I see you read QC.
Kat: oh god daily
Westly: +1 awesome point
Kat: im glad you noticed the reference
i say it all the time and no one picks up on it
they just assume its another of my quirks
Westly: Hahaha
Hello? I said I was a geek.
Kat: truuuue
Kate Beaton?
Westly: No, though Ive seen it.
Kat: she has a book coming out
i nearly peed in geeky joy
Westly: I do Red Meat, /gu(gamer comic), and penny arcade
Do I have to place mats down for you?
Kat: not yet
the cover was potentially going to be QE1 so the history / ren faire nerd in me was a little too happy
Westly: mental note: buy chew toys.
Kat: hee
Westly: Are you going out tonight to enjoy Irish heritage?
Kat: most likely
but unsure of plans as of now
my hobo is bailing to be with his (super stressed about finals) lady
Westly: promote premarital sex.
Tell em it'll take care of all that stress.
Kat: that is most def NOT the problem
especially since they are both ex mormons
You almost had me choking on Reese's Pieces candy
Kat: hahah! YESSSSSS
Westly: If Im gonna die fat and bloated, can it not be by candy?
Kat: i will do my best to prevent it, yes
Westly: WOOHOO!
Kat: plus Mars is a doctor
Westly: No Elvis death impersonation for me!
Kat: hahahaha
Westly: KITTY!
Kat: if you do die that way im going to shove you into the bathroom
just for the notoriety
Westly: Make sure I'm in a sequence jump suit
Kat: i will hand craft it
Westly: hahaha
Kat: lovingly
like chris isaaks mom
Westly: hahahahahahahaha
Kat: think lots of mirrors
Westly: Sounds more like Liberache
Kat: http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y56/AllerabraB/2008mirror1.jpg
Westly: oh no
Kat: mwahahaha
Westly: I am in awe in A) how quickly you were able to link that and B) a bit intimidated that you're aware of it's reflective exsistence.
Kat: he wore it to a show i went to. his mom really did make it.
it was really impressive and terrifying at the same time
Westly: What a wicked game you play.
Kat: also: somehow I am a quick linker. i dont know where it came from
i know when somebodys cryin'
Westly: Can you just let me know if it can't be me?
I wait alone each lonely night... in a blue hotel.
Kat: :)
Westly: okay time for me to restart the computer and eat. I'll talk to you soon.
Kat: nomnomlater
as in
and later gator
eat later
or anything like that

Beren: Haha last night as I was closing at work one of my coworkers sent me a picture of him holding STEEL RESERVE. I sent him a response picture of my middle finger. Cause I was still at work. Then I told him I was jealous.
me: you should always reply with the video of me laughing and holding STEEL RESERVE
(it will imply you are drinking 211 with a cute girl!)
Beren: Wow I didn't even think of that. You are one smart cookie.
me: tee! i do what i can
Beren: I'm gonna make my new PIN for my debit card 0211
Now you can steal my monies.
Or STEEL my monies
me: hahaha
how bout i just STEEL your RESERVE
Beren: Well that might be all fine and dandy, but ill need my RESERVE to get to CA to STEEL your heart.
me: hahahah
211 humor is the best
Beren: Totally. It negates all the alcoholic insinuation. "Well, gee, we only drink it for the jokes!"
