locked my keys in the car

while it was running this morning... it was running.
I turned it on to heat-up(because it was 5 degrees outside)and the door I had left open got pushed closed while I chipped ice off the windows.Mostly I could just laugh and laugh while I waited for AAA.

I was late for work already so i treated myself to some donuts before I drove to work at 20 MPH (incase you aren't here theres a blizzard going off)

Also going off, The Eddie.
Been watching it online all day.
Heres to better I MEAN less snow-filled days

p.s. I don't hate Utah. Sometimes you just think "Why am I in the middle of a blizzard when people are on a beach somewhere else??!?"

County Fair

Went to the fair and it was so fun!

Saw this prize pig.

And the smallest horse in the world!! I asked the midget that was holding it to set it down in its shoe box so I could take this picture...

this was a pie-eating contest. duh
We also Boys To Men for free!
Rode the Barf-go -round (you know the anti-gravity thing)
Ate great fair food. My favorite!!
Any opportunity to wear my cowboy boots is a good thing.

the saucy little red-head


There were ten pretty girls at the village school.
Picture ten pretty girls at the village school!
They were sweet, small and tall
And the boy loved them all
But you can't marry ten pretty girls.

There were ten pretty girls and let me tell you this:
That the boy's biggest thrill was to steal a kiss
Playing 'kiss-in-a-ring'
But it don't mean a thing
'Cos you can't marry ten pretty girls

Now, five were blondes and four brunettes
And one was a saucy little red-head.
The girls grew up and the boy left school
And at twenty-one he wedded the saucy little red-head.

Now there's one pretty girl from the village school
And 'twas she took the boy from the village school.
Kissing girls may be fine
But you've left over nine
'Cos you can't marry ten pretty girls.

GrannyBird sang me this song when she saw that my hair had gotten redder

swine flu

I hate the swine flu

It's 100% blown out of proportion...
did you know that more people have died of the real flu this year than of swine flu?
not hard... only ONE person has died of swine flu compared to the 13,000 that died of the real flu...

Also, two people are killed every year by VENDING MACHINES!!

vending machines, 200% more deadly than the swine flu.

I'm just a little upset... I had a great trip to Havasupi planned and it was completely ruined. this picture only sort of makes up for it...

free your feet!

I was always barefoot when I was a kid, and even now it is rare to find me laced up unless I am going somewhere where it is required.
in fact... A few months ago my parents were out here visiting and we decided to go to town via the north shore. Well we had a good time at the beach for a little while and then hopped in the car to head on to honolulu (about an hour or more away from my house) we were about 3/4's the way there when I realized I hadn't brought any shoes! My parents and even katie gave me that look... the "Are you serious?!' look... yes, I am 22 and I went to the mall with no shoes on.
I think my mom was a little embarrassed when I waltzed into Nordstrom with my toes bared, she insisted on buying me new sandals.

But according to this link:

I'm the one that got it right!

so show of those tootsies, painted or not.

I did it!

I have wanted an autoharp for a long old time, and I bought myself one for my birthday (with the help of the $ GB sent me)
good buy Karl
I love it
in case you are wondering what an autoharp is the girl on stage left of this video is playing one... June carter played one. man i just love it so much!
maybe when I feel a little more confident I will post myself playing it... maybe

some of these people are doing it...

Not the one in the middle.

So many good times, and jokes and trips...I'm glad you girls are growing up! maybe some day I will join you.
But for now I will wear my bridesmaid dress, dodge your bouquet and eat your cake!

I have a feeling that no husband is going to get in the way of times like these...

Don't judge

I officially have one month of college left!


so to celebrate I bought these shorts...

now, some of you might be thinking, "Karly, those are too short".
They are actual shorts, yes.
This is not normal for me. For the past four years I have attended (and I'm more than glad I have) BYU, and anything above the knee has been too short. But no longer!
don't get me wrong, I love being modest
and I'm not going to go wild because of these shorts,
but my lower thighs have been neglected enough!

whilst I was reading

"By complex, confusing, and almost contradictory mathematical process, by the use of zigzags instead of straight lines, the earth can be proved to be the centre of things celestial;
But by an operation so simple that it can be comprehended by a schoolboy, its position can be verified among the other worlds which revolve about the sun, and its movements harmonized with the laws of the universe."

-James Weldon Johnson in "Autobiography of an Ex-coloured Man"

*also, Pluto's not a planet. FYI

In celebration

of my new red skirt.

Did you know that according to the National Greeting Card Association (the NGCA) 85 percent of Valentines are bought and sent by women?
I protest!

I will not be sending out Valentines cards.

Happy Valentines anyway...

latest love affair

I spend all my time with him, John Steinbeck.
Thats right, while my cousins make eternal relationships I have mad affairs with books. I am writing my senior thesis about John, his friend Ed and this book...

I highly recommend reading it. Its everything a book should be; poetry, comedy, tragedy, full of nostalgia. If you don't want to be the person you've always wanted after you read it... well then I don't know what.

favorite encounter in my research:

(written by john Steinbeck in a letter to a friend)

"The values (of society) have gotten crossed up. Courtesy is confused with weakness an emotion with sentimentality. We want to be tough guys and forget that the toughest guys were always the wholest guys. Achilles wept like a baby over Patroclus and Hector's guts turned to water with fear."

The year mascara was invented by a chemist named T. L. Williams.
The earliest in history I could have been born and still led a happy life.

The drug of choice.

I'm serious, its an addiction.
I have really blond eyelashes and I hate them. Sometimes after days at the beach we go straight to town to go to Walmart or the movies, i always bring my mascara just incase. My roommates look at me in amusement (disgust?) as I push my cart through Walmart WHILE applying my mascara.

Best day of my life = while wrapping presents with my sister kerry for christmas she looks at me and says, "are you wearing false eyelashes?"

*sigh* success
