Au Revoir

katie in front of her church building in manhattan

Au Revoir my little birdies.
I am off to visit ma soeur Keke for one week in the BIG APPLE.
I am rather excited for the following reasons:
  1. No School.
  2. I've had a craving to go to NYC since 7th grade.
  3. No School.
  4. I've also been craving a hot dog for about a month and a half.
  5. No School.
I love you all so much and I will post pictures and stories from my adventure soon!

Lovely Abish is wearing a lovely medal. (The lovely little munchkin refused to sit up.) Whose lovely medal is it? Mine! This lovely medal comes from a lovely region drama event on the lovely day of Tuesday. I performed the lovely song, Joshua Noveck sung by Susan Egan (Meg from Hercules) as a lovely humorous monologue. There were three lovely rounds with three lovely judges and an assortment of fellow lovely humorous monologuers. But it went fantastic. Lovely Straight Superiors. Lovely.

Lovely count: 14

ps. I forced my pal Stuart to come along... and it was a party. Thanks Stuart!

Mrs. P and the Story of the Full Bladder.

doesn't this title just intrigue you like no other?

Yesterday I had a HUGE test in Physiology. (Thank heavens for that class. I love it! It completes my life! What would I do without all that homework????? please note sarcasm) So naturally, I studied on Thursday night. But there was a problem. Mean Girls was on. There is a very small selection of movies I can watch over and over... Mean Girls is one of them. (Also in that group is The Jane Austen Book Club, Devil Wears Prada, Waitress, 17 Again, Win a Date With Tad Hamilton! And the list goes on.) So naturally I had to watch it and sacrifice two hours of studying and one hour of sleep (I don't know how that worked) for it, and you know what? It was well worth it! HA!

However, the real problem came in class the next morning. The test had been handed out and I was on #13. "In order list the passage way for air. nose, nasal cavity, larynx, pharynx, trachea... or is it pharynx larynx..." And bam. I had a tall glass of water that morning. And when I say tall, I mean tall. So I noisly make my way up to Mrs. Physiology's desk thanks to my loud sandals and the you-could-hear-a-pin-drop silent class and I say, "Mrs. Physiology, may I go to the bathroom?" And she looks at me with the smile on her face that NEVER goes away, even when she's angry (I should have known) and she says, "You cannot go until the test is over!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" (extra exclamation marks added for effect) So I turn around and noisly walk back to my desk thanks to my sandals and the Y-C-H-A-P-D class and sit down. As I am trying to concentrate on # 13, I realize there are 70 questions and a full bladder at stake here. Recipe for disaster.

Before I know it, a tear may or may not have come to my right eye because I was furious. And I don't even get furious that often. A girl has gotta go when a girl has gotta go! So in a little bit of spite, I kind of rushed through my test (take that Mrs. P) and was allowed to FINALLY go to the bathroom.

Relieved and a failed test. Great.

don't dance american.

TITLE borrowed from Lya ;)

Why haven't I blogged for a week? End of term. Other reason: a certain dance competition. No, no friends, I was not competing in it- I was hosting it. Well, not me, all by myself, Timpview D.CO. 3 pm to 11:30 pm last night. 7 am to 8:45 pm today. Awesome.

Favorite moments of THE competition.
  1. I witnessed a 5 year old slip and fall in the commons. The first thing her mother did: "Don't cry! Don't cry! It will mess up your makeup and eyelashes!"
  2. "How do I get to the bleachers?" "Walk."
  3. Walking around my high school for 3 and a half hours, showing people where to go. I now know my school like the back of my hand. Word.
  4. 5 and 6 year olds with hip-hop 'stink' faces.
  5. Bossy people. I love them so much. SO SO MUCH. When I grow up, I want to be bossy and just plain awesome. BOSS!
  6. Working at concessions and doing mental math. That was sure interesting. I'm hoping and praying I did not mess up TOO badly. This is mula we are talking about...
  7. Getting a free caramel apple, apple pie style, for helping Mrs. Caramel Apple herself!
  8. One job I had was working the remote for the marque that put up the number of the dance for the dancers and judges. A middle aged man behind me who was listening to the BYU game with headphones, tapped me on the shoulder and very loudly said, "Can you fast forward some dances with that?" Classy.
  9. Serving cold chili to people in concessions because I was unaware the crock pot was not on.
  10. I purchased the world's biggest cinnamon roll ever. I could only eat half-- but it was the best half of anything I have ever tasted.
  11. Crawling on my hands and knees in the auditorium, picking up trash, row by row. Why were there so many wrappers and soda cans? Since when do dancers eat unhealthy?
  12. Finding tights, tossing them at brick walls, and having them magically stick on. (You had to be there for that... and all of this stuff really-- but that's okay because I was!)

wet dogs.

me and l'abish immediately after our walk.
nous sommes mouillé

My big chunk of a pup, Abish, and I went on a rainy walk today. We were thoroughly enjoying ourselves until a boy of about 22 joined us on the sidewalk. He was a few awkward paces behind us and I couldn't get Abish to go faster to widen the awkwardness. Heavens. Sometimes, she can be as slow as molasses. He eventually passed us- awkward- so we ended up being behind him which I think is the less awkward of the positions.

Soooo we're just strolling along the sidewalk when a husband and wife come out of their front door, hand in hand, and join in our line of awkwardness. Great.

I felt like I should have asked them their names, where they were born and what they wanted to do with their lives. We were all just, that close. So picture this: Four people, plus a dog, in a ridiculously close proximity on a sidewalk that never ends. Charming? Yes, for you I'm sure.

a series of clovers.

I am in the St. Patrick's Day mood already, which is why I decided to do
a series of clovers.
I want to wear green and pinch people four days too soon!
How am I going to be able to wait?
Only the leprechauns know I suppose.

Alice in Underland

Alice in Wonderland makes me want to have a middle part.

Too bad a middle part makes me look horriblé. french accent required.

But still, I loved the movie. A lot.

jovial. ness.

My blogger friend and real life friend, Coryn, has introduced me to a new artist who I very much like! Her name is Meaghan Smith. She is really the cutest thing since cheese. Check out her website here. I love her style and voice. Tres, tres magnifique.

On another note, this week has been quite wonderful. And why shouldn't it have been? Every week has potential, it's how we look at it, riiiiiiight? It has been rainy and sunny. My two favorite weathers!!! Mother Nature loves me this week, I suppose!

On an even nother note, (I may have just made that phrase up) this weekend my Mommy, Daddy and I are going to go see Alice in Wonderland. Pumped. The end. Also, I'm having a photo shoot with a dear friend Schmeve, and going to a birthday party for the resident cutie, Kenya, (pronounced like the country- gorgeous right?) where I will see lots of people who I haven't seen for approximately 6 months.

Life is good. It truly is.

Ma famille

I drew this during church today.

From left to right: Sasha with flowers, Katie with a purse, Mother with my Father's hand, Father with my Mother's hand (he looks like a teenager), Danielle with a Book of Mormon and name tag, and Abish with bangs.

Love them. Love them so much.

don't charge me for the cream. wrong place wrong team.

Last night, Mar Par and I made an amazing video. It reminds me of the Magic School Bus plus a little, Faces of Provo. However, it is not edited nor finished at the moment so I have nothing to show you. On another note, in June, MP and I made a music video to, "Don't Charge Me For the Crime" by the Jo Bros. This one, is finished. Enjoy!!!

ps. I REALLY want to go to NY. Today. Right now.

j'ai detest devoirs.
