I Love Kate Voegele

What One Tree Hill fan doesn't love Kate Voegele? And what girl in her right mind doesn't love One Tree Hill? (Don't answer that if you're going to hurt my feelings.) Anyway, Kate released her second album, and you can download the mp3 version of the entire album from Amazon for just $2.99.

If The Shoe Fits... Wear It With Different Ribbons Every Day

I have a new love. A long-distance love. A made-just-for-me, "sole"mate kind of love.

Unfortunately, it is also a 6-8-week-waiting-list kind of love.

Look at these shoes from my new made-in-America crush Mohop, and try to tell me you don't absolutly hate me for finding them first. I double-dog-dare you.

I must have them. Denying the instant connection simply isn't an option. I've already planned out the appropriate budget cuts to finance my next dose of happiness. Each pair comes with five sets of ribbons. And then you can buy even more on the website. So really, I'll be getting five pairs of shoes. That makes them a very economical investment in myself.

If I Lived in Paris, I'd Still Be Asleep

Amazing photo by David Latt

Apparently I could put off Monday morning a little longer if I lived in France. According to this article, the French spend more time eating and sleeping than the people of any other wealthy country. The average citizen sleeps almost 9 hours a night and spends more than two hours a day eating. And they're thinner than Americans.
*Sigh* As if I didn't already have enough Parisian envy...

Other French things I love...

The Lawyer and His Porsche

A very successful lawyer parked his brand new Porsche Carrera GT in front of the office, ready to show it off to his colleagues. As he was getting out, a truck came along too close to the car and completely tore off the driver's door.

Fortunately, a policeman was close enough to see the accident and pulled up behind the Porsche, his lights flashing. But, before the policeman had a chance to ask any questions, the lawyer started screaming hysterically about how his Porsche, which he had just picked up the day before, was now completely ruined and would never be the same no matter how hard the body shop tried to make it new again.
After the lawyer finally wound down from his rant, the officer shook his head in disgust and disbelief. 'I can't believe how materialistic you lawyers are,' he said. 'You're so focused on your possessions that you neglect the most important things in life'

'How can you say such a thing?' asked the lawyer. The officer replied, 'Don't you even realize that your left arm is missing? It got ripped off when the truck hit you!'

'OH, NO!' screamed the lawyer. 'MY ROLEX!!!'
