i talk to strangers. 

i talk to a lot of strangers. 

but i feel like strangers has a very scary connotation, so let’s call them… 

new acquaintances.  

i was talking to a new acquaintance the other day at target and we started talking about eurocup. i told him that i was mostly in it for the hotties.. but that i thought that soccer was pretty cool too. he recommended a movie. and now i am recommending it to you. 

so from one of my new acquaintances and me, to you. 




there is something special about sports. it brings people together.

lately i have been glued to the tv from 9am-1:30 pacific time to watch soccer. (this is probably due to the fact that i have NOTHING to do… and have a 65″ television which makes anything look good)

wait.. soccer?

yeah, soccer.

i was reintroduced a little while ago.. and really took a liking to it.

let me tell you why:

the goals are so special. the feeling you get when there is a goal is unlike anything else. it’s exciting. my toes curl. and i can’t help but smile.

on the contrary, there is something special about good defense and a good save as well.

today while i was watching spain and ireland i felt something i had never felt before. ireland was getting demolished. the score was 4-0 in spain’s favor. but the irish fans started singing. they started singing to support their team and their country. i felt like i was a part of something bigger. like i was connected to the irish. to the world.

now a video of a small boy from ukraine:

pure joy.

there is someth…


an australian band. 

a great summer song. 



i am a hypocrite

NO i did not wear running shoes and jeans.

but i can’t stop listening to this song:

feeling remixy

i love when you love a song.. then hear a remix of the song you love then you love the remix.

here’s an example:



summer songs

coby‘s new blog entry has got me thinking about summer songs.

here’s one i heard today:

and for some weird reason.. i feel like i’ve heard it before…

but is it just so good.. that i feel like i have?

i have some serious beef with the music industry.

what happened to boy bands?


they are still around… but they just aren’t what they used to be.

let’s begin:

new kids on the block: great moves, guys.

boyz ii men: look at them cut a rug.

nsync: gettin’ jiggy wit’ it for sure.

backstreet boys: getting down with their bad selves.

b2k: their bodies are definitely bump bump.. bumpin?


one direction: don’t get me wrong. great song. love that little cutie with the deep voice. but no choreographed moves. jumping around doesn’t count.

big time rush aka btr: they definitely are very new kids on the block by driving in the car.. but again.. no dancing.

i feel so bad for the girls that are teenagers right now.. why? no. true. boy. bands. only fake ones.


you’re probably wondering.. wait.. kaley.. what about the jonas brothers?

they are, of course, an exception.. because 2/3 boy band members are playing an instrument.. making is difficult to have a choreographed dance.

i have some ser…

this dress is finally on sale.
someone please tell me why i shouldn't get it.
i know i have lots of clothes.. but this is beautiful.

justin bieber and andy rooney

i wonder what they’d think if they knew i was including them in a blog post together.

i wonder what andy rooney would say about justin bieber’s new song: boyfriend. probably the same thing that he says about modern art in the video below:
