Memes Galore August 4, 2008

Thank you, Sarah, for giving me a meme to do. Otherwise I may never have posted again! Actually, there’s an interesting meme that’s about to get started at the Exemplify blog where everyone mulls over a scripture from Thursday until Monday and then posts a response to the scripture, whether a picture, a poem, or a straight up blog post. Neato, huh?


It’s all about meme baby.

Here are the tag rules:
1. Link to the person who tagged you.
2. Post the rules on your blog.
3. Write six random things about yourself.
4. Tag six people at the end of your post and link to them.
5. Let each person know they’ve been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.
6. Let the tagger know when your entry is up.

Six Random Things About Me:

1. I like bananas but I hate banana flavored anything. Those new Vivanos at Starbucks? Gross. I’ll dip a banana in chocolate and pass out from the delicious, but squish the two together in a cup? Pass the vomit bag please.

2. In the same Starbucks vein, I absolutely MUST line up the logo on the cup with the logo on the cardboard sleeve and then both of those MUST be centered with the opening in the lid that you drink through. Back up off me with your OCD. It does not compare. P.S. – I saw the funniest flare on facebook the other day (one of you may well have sent it to me, but along with my OCD I am also ADD, so I forgot immediately who it was that sent it.)

What was I talking about…?

Oh right. The flare said “I’m CDO, which is like OCD except the letters are in alphabetical order, exactly as they should be.”

3. One of the funniest foreign language words I know is “ook.” It’s Dutch for “also.” I think it is also monkey for “please hand me a banana before I begin throwing feces.” It’s interesting the similarities between the monkeys and the Dutch. Maybe I should apply the same principle at Starbucks. Banana smoothie, hold the smoothie. Or else.

4. I was supposed to finish my 50 Day devotional entry 2 weeks ago but I didn’t turn it in until this morning. What are they going to do? Run it without me? Please.

Oh, I kid.

5. The next 5 songs on shuffle on my iPod are 1) Total Praise – Avalon 2) Let’s Stay Together – Al Green 3) All I Want – Joni Mitchell 4) Doth I Protest Too Much – Alanis Morissette and 5) Seasons Change – Corinne Bailey Rae

6. I think Vera Bradley purses are really, really, really ugly.

Tag 6 people. No. How’s that? If you want to play, knock your socks off. If not, you’re not breaking my heart. If you do want to play, leave your link in the comments. Also, if you’re into the Monday Manna thing let me know. I think that’s a super cool idea.

Peace out, sweet peeps. 🙂

Ok I’m only posting this so I don’t have to see my big head everytime I go blog surfing. (I surf from my sidebar)

This nearly made me wet my pants last week.

I think I laughed for a full 5 minutes.

That’s all.

Love, Whitney

I just realized that saying that I “Blogsurf from my sidebar” very nearly makes me sound athletic. Don’t you think? Anyway. You know. Hang 10 dudes.


The New ‘Do May 29, 2008

Here it is, interpeeps. The front:

And the back:

Aw yeah.

The picture kind of loses the effect of the flippies, but you get the idea.

I need you to understand that this is the shortest my hair has been since 4th grade. My grandmother cut my hair when I was a kid, which meant that my hair was always short on the top, cut over the ears, and landed just at the nape of my neck. Now, if you read that closely enough, you know that what I’m describing is basically a mullet. It wasn’t strictly “all business in the front and a party in the back.” Mine wasn’t that fancy. Just plain ugly would about sum it up.

So ever since I’ve had any say-so in the styling of my hair, it’s been long long long. I grew it ridiculously long last year, had about 3 inches taken off for my sister’s wedding, then wasn’t cut again for 8 months. My poor hairdresser held the frayed, split, fried ends of my limp locks in her hand yesterday and made the “ooohhh…that’s bad….” face. I said – do whatever you want, but if you could cut it thicker that’d be great thankyouverymuch.

I love my girl. She’s completely amazing. If you’ve got the coin to drop on a fancy hair place (which I don’t, hence the 8 month haircutting hiatus) go see Amber at Joseph’s on the Square in Lawrenceville. She’s a blast, she’s amazing at the cutting of the hairs, and she shares my love of stupid Will Ferrell movies. Which, of course, is what we call a triple threat.

The swelling’s gone, it was just inflammation, the sutures are out and she’s not going to have to have surgery!!! I’d write more, but I’m just too excited!

THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR PRAYERS. It means everything.

Love you.
