KB: A coworker of my dad’s gave me a documentary for girls to comment on when I was 11. She’s on set with him today observing today and brought the below. He took a photo and sent to me and my mom. Prepare to make fun of me forever. Also, I was not good at grammar then.
Kate: AMAZING. Caps necessary and intended.
Amulya: AHAHAHAHAH. Dying. I love how your whole review is just suggestions for what things they SHOULD have added. Esp. your invention of the proverb “you can do anything if your heart LEADS YOU TO IT”, aka hopefully you get lucky and your heart decides to lead you in the right direction, bitch.
Also wow how did you end up basically illiterate at age 11?
KB: I was NOT illiterate. RUDE!
Long-form writing was not a strength apparently. 11 year olds write in lists. Or at least I did when 11.
It was a review. I was very a critical thinker from a young age.
KB: But in seriousness, I was terrible at using transitions until high school. I struggled with them in a big way in middle school.
Amulya: Also please tell me the violent scrawl at the bottom is your signature
KB: It can’t be.
I do appreciate that the core principles I still agree with.
[note: this post was written by Emma, as she takes issue with Kate’s blogging process…aka she is an impatient individual.]
Kate: I should watch Parks and Rec more often, but I never want to watch it alone. But when I do watch it, it makes me so happy — WHAT THE FUCK.
[note: The profanity was in reference to her less than stellar wifi crapping out on us.]
SCENE: STILL watching Parks and Recreation.
KATE: Why doesn’t he know what she’s doing?
(On the screen)
BEN WYATT: I know what you’re doing Leslie.
SCENE: (Watching Parks and Recreation. Rashida Jones enters.)
KATE: Rashida Jones, go fly a kite.
(Next part to be read in a high squeaky voice)
EMMA: You really don’t like Rashida Jones? What is wrong with you? You like Rob Lowe but not Rashida Jones?
KATE: Coughing laughter (the meds are slowly working, don’t worry).
The real skinny: My theory about Rashida Jones is that she’s a really cool girl IRL and pretty attractive and has mad celeb connecks (purposely sic, let’s make “connecks” happen) and can apparently carry a tune and people just dig hanging around her, so they keep casting her in stuff, even though she isn’t that talented – not terrible, just not that talented – but she’s cool to kick it on set with.
Even Getty‘s onboard.
I wish there was a way to liveblog my sleep so as to prove what an awesome time I’m having not waking up at 4:30 am.
A) Rock the front page of the Chicago Tribune.
For a better shot of me in all my glory, go to image 16 in this slideshow. I’m the happy person in the back. My presence, along with Odette’s, on the cover of this stupendous paper, prompted my boss to include me in this blog post.
B) Work on this video.
His words, not mine!
I found this photo to be an appropriate and excellent way to plug WBEZ, where I will be the devoted and beloved slave of the Online Content team for the next few months, thus explaining the potential spurt in Public Radio posts to be seen on this very site. I wouldn’t wear any of these outfits to the office, but I sure would like to.
