Late Night Eating Confessions

I have a confession to make. It is 11:09 p.m. I just ate a huge homemade coconut cupcake with cream cheese frosting, and before I could stop myself I polished off the top half of another one. I seriously disgust myself.

Mission Call Baby

Mission calls. I don't think I've ever felt more nervous in my entire life than when I ripped open the envelope sent from church headquarters that would change the course of my life forever. I was completely shocked to read "Cleveland Ohio Mission". Who goes to Cleveland anyway? Nevertheless, I am super excited. My uncle later informed me that the Browns play in Cleveland. I had to ask him which sport the Browns play, but I'm thinking that football might be a new love for me now. My friend Tiffany also reminded me that the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Museum is located in Cleveland. Yeah baby. One more thing.. I failed to mention that I will also be serving a bit at the historic Kirtland sites. I'm thinking that maybe I'll do some negotiating while I'm there and get us back the temple.

Do blondes have more fun?

Today I'd like to pose a question... do blondes really have more fun? I recently discovered that fellow advertising guru Shirley Polykoff coined the phrase in the 1950s for a national Clairol advertising campaign. I was somewhat surprised to find that this revolutionary slogan was just a brilliant marketing scheme. I don't know what I really expected.. proof maybe? Scientific studies to show that women with blonde hair actually possess a higher quality of fun in their lives than all other women? Possibly.
Well if Shirley Polykoff can throw around expressions that change the course of history, than so can I. I've got one for you. Brunettes are more mysterious. I seriously believe this. Last week I traded in my platinum locks. I was tired of the maintanance that comes along with being blonde, and I was ready for a big change. And so I dyed my hair chocolate brown. Yes, you heard it, brown. I love it. I love being a brunette. Not only do people take me more seriously in the workplace, but there is also this aura of newfound mysteriousness about me. It's crazy. Another perk I've noticed is that nasty construction workers don't check me out as much anymore. If you blondes out there don't believe me, just make the change and you will know exactly what I mean.
Maybe blondes really do have more fun. Maybe. But as far as I can tell, all in all, being brunette isn't half bad.

I'm back..

Creating a blog is easy. I did it a few months ago, and had high hopes of providing literary snacks for friends and family who found themselves surfing the web long enough to read this. Like I said, that was the easy part. The real trick, I've discovered, is thinking of something astounding and brilliant to write about.
Obvoiusly I've had a pretty lazy, blogless summer. Blame it simply on a lack of motivation.
Rest assured, my lackadaisical days are over now. That's right. I'm going to start blogging again. Jessica 'tagged' me, and so ladies and gentleman, for my second blogging debut, you get a survey describing yours truly. Oh goody....
