I had nothing to offer anybody except my own confusion. ~Jack Kerouac

jay and silent bob

I had a dream last night that I finally got my new camera and was taking pictures up at the cottage, when my camera slid off the dock and into the water. I dove in after it (in like two feet of water) and it was ruined. Why do I have dreams where something tragic always has to happen? Usually my dreams are a lot more intense and are very gory, but that is due to the fact that I was told once when I was younger (by Mrs. Lahti, I believe) that I have an overactive imagination and I day dream too much. But still, someday I aspire to have a dream where something good actually happens to me.

I was driving home last night from Kaukauna and I got pulled over. I was clocked in at going 39 in a 25. I apologized and told him I lived in Oshkosh and was not aware of the speed limit. He ran my plates, then gave me a verbal warning. I had come from a bar. I know I reeked of beer and cigarettes. Yet, I got away with a verbal warning. Sweet, huh?

My purple plant

Jenny likes to play this game where she hides in random places around the house and creeps me out. She says she is not hiding, but I know the truth. You can't be that creepy on accident. On the way home from taco bell Jenny sang all the songs she knows about pockets. It was amazing. If she were to compete in the Miss America pagent, that could be her talent. "Yeah, I know a lot of songs about pockets."

We had quite a weekend. It all started when we went to the wrong wedding ceremony. It was very embarrassing. This other wedding was just ending as we ran in, soaking wet from the rain. Everyone stared. Then, we would have made it to the reception without getting lost, but Sheila accidentally put concealer on her lips and it was the funniest thing we ever saw. So we missed our turn. Kira said the greatest line ever to the creepy guys that were hitting on us in the bar. He asked for Kira's number then said, "So is it ok if I call you sometime?" To which Kira replied, "Yeah, but I can't guarantee I will answer it." And he did call after we got back to the hotel. Did she answer it? Nope. At the reception we were told there was a shuttle that would take us back to the hotel so we could drink to our heart's content. Well, at the end of the night, we were informed there really was no shuttle. So Matt the bartender brought us to the hotel in a minivan, and had to come back for us the next morning. I felt so bad for Juliane because she was so sick and can't talk.

I am so broke I could not buy air to breathe if it came down to it. Well basically that just means that pretty soon I am going to be taking out another loan, on top of the financial aid that I will be receiving after school starts. It partly has to do with the fact that I always end up writing out the bills and I never get paid back, which means I have borrowed some large sums of money from my parents. And that is money they need back rather quickly. I really suck at being a grown up. I bet Vanilla Ice makes a better grown up than me.

In this picture, I am the statue of liberty. Instead of a torch, I have a sparkler. Instead of a book, I have a can of beer.

I figured instead of boring you with what I have done today (absolutely nothing), I would give you some totally random facts about my life. You might already know this, you might not care, you might think I am insane. Oh well. Enjoy.

1. I don't like to wear socks.
2. My favorite soda is diet Sprite. I also like cream soda, but because of it's darker color, it does not always get along with my stomach. That is why I usually stick with my diet Sprite.
3. When I get scared or nervous I chew on my fingers and my hands. I don't know why I do this. It usually leaves red marks, I have only drawn blood from it once or twice. So I consider it a safe habit. Safe, yet weird.
4. Some day I am going to master the art of eating with chopsticks.
5. I enjoy a wide variety of music, mostly because I like songs based on the way the lyrics are written. Sublime, for example, I love everything about it-- the truth in the lyrics, the total randomness, the fact that Bradley Nowell can rhyme just about everything. Red Hot Chili Peppers and Silverchair also rank among my favorite bands, also because I love the meaning of most of the songs.
6. I don't like the noise that kitchen drawers make when they open and close. It just really irritates me.
7. I have never had banana cream pie.
8. I have acquired a taste for beer. I never really liked beer until last summer. And now I do. A lot. I don't know why.
9. When a shower curtain is closed, I have to check behind it before I pee. It is a habit I have had since I was little. I was afraid of somebody hiding in the shower. I'm not real sure why.
10. I have a fear of commitment. I don't like the way I am when I am in a relationship; I become too passive and for that reason, I take a lot of shit that I shouldn't. I always feel underappreciated. I can't help it. It's not that I need to be the center of attention, but I feel like I am 'the girlfriend' and I am around just to fufill that role. That's why I don't date anymore.
11. My feet have gotten bigger. I now wear an 11 1/2 in women's.
12. I compulsively buy underwear.
13. All the pets I have ever had have been either amphibians or reptiles. I have never had a pet that did not need to be in a tank of water.
14. I am real excited for my creative writing class.
15. I am very impatient, I hate waiting for things.
16. My favorite letter is "C". There are so many exciting C words - cooties, cleavage, cooter, calamity (first time I ever actually wrote the word 'calamity' was the other day. I wrote it on a napkin with a green marker), castration, cookie....
17. Today when I went to the bank, I was driving along and blasting Tool so loud in my car that all of Oshkosh probably heard it. There was a guy getting out of his car at the bank who checked me out. It always feels good to be checked out by strangers.
18. I like to learn about everything. I watch documentaries all the time. I have no idea what I am going to do with my life post-college. But I enjoy learning everything that I have. It is so interesting.
19. I have the same birthday as Al Gore.
20. When I was younger, I would try to practice saying the alphabet backwards. On TV, cops ask their victims to recite the alphabet backwards all the time. I wanted to be prepared incase it happened to me. I thought it was something everyone needed to be able to do.
21. Bright red is my least favorite color.
22. I like to watch the stand up comedians on Comedy Central. Some of them are so hilarious, "Are you sitting in a bean bag chair, naked, eating cheetos?"
23. I brush my teeth A LOT. I can't help it.
24. Today I made a group on the Facebook for Days. Right now I am the only member, but it makes my life feel more complete because I am in a group for Days. (If you would like to facebook me, I put the link in 3 different places on the side, just so you can't miss it.)
25. I tend to insult people's moms frequently. Your mom goes to college.
26. I have a great respect for people who can take good black and white pictures. Working in a photo lab, I have seen a lot of people who just put a b&w roll in their camera and take pictures. It is not that easy. You have to pay attention to light when you are dealing with black and white. When I see good ones, it makes me happy.
27. I can only count to 6 in Spanish.
28. Today I wrote Jenny a check. I spelled my name "Ktris". I don't know why.

I lost my hearing aid at Outback

Today I worked from 1:45 to 11. Let me tell you about that. I had to get carts from the parking lot 3 different times, that is not an easy job. Our parking lot is so horrible that the carts roll in every direction. It is amazing how many carts end up in the parking lot. Really amazing. From now on I only want to push one cart at a time, not ten. My back hurts real bad and I really think I might feel better if I would just throw up. I am so tired that I am wide awake. And I work both jobs tomorrow. Some days I just love being me.

I had to go to walmart after work because I realized I forgot to buy the things I needed while I was working at Target. I felt real weird, I guess I still feel strange walking around somewhere by myself, especially late at night. I feel real vulnerable and real alone. I can't help it though. Once something bad happens to you, I guess you expect it to keep happening. I never want to be in a situation like that ever again. Anyways, the reason I brought up Walmart is because I saw the funniest thing I have ever seen in my life on my way there. There was a lady in a wheelchair and a man crossing the street. Except the lady was carrying the man on the back of the wheelchair as she was steering the wheelchair around. It would have been just as fast for the man to walk, but I guess he wanted a ride. Please, take me for a ride.....on your wheelchair.

I am jealous of Jenny's plant for it's springing action. It looks dead, but all she has to do is water it. And the next day it has sprung back to life. If only my venus flytrap could do that. Nobody has found the frog yet.

Pyramid of Stolen Batteries

There are 4 ingredients in fluff. If you can guess all four without cheating I will give you a cookie. We have tv once again. I am getting my car fixed this week (maybe). I am also well overdue for an oil change, but money does not grow on trees. That's for sure. I am so confused about how the schedule works at Target. I am thinking about just calling in next weekend for Sandra's wedding. I didn't swallow my pills hard enough, I can still feel them in my throat. I hate that. And I am not going to walk downstairs just for a glass of water. All I have done the last couple of days is watch tv because I have been feeling real sick. I hate it how when I get sick with anything, no matter what it is, my joints all ache. One of these days I am going to venture over to the Oshkosh Public Library. The giant ceramic lions out front are keeping me from wanting to go there. My middle name is not Lucifer and Karma's middle name is not Ann.

happy july

If you can guess which tv show this quote is from I will love you forever and ever----

"What day is today? Today is Mother's day"

That's right, it is a Full House quote. I hung out with our immature 19 year old neighbors yesterday. Cool, huh? I have been up since 6:30 this morning. That's why I am going to bed now instead of getting my nails done by Big Brother's Nails. I have eaten too much Chinese. I love being 21. I can buy beer whenever I want.

Here is a webpage all about me----

aren't I hot? I might change my picture to that one in the facebook. Then maybe I would get more friends.

The creepy things about this Kristin Wilson are:
1. She graduated from James Madison University. I graduated from James Madison Middle School.
2. She has two degrees - one in English and one in Sociology. I am an English major with my minor in sociology.
3. We look so much alike that it freaks me out. I'm just kidding about this one.
