Katelyn, my froomie and my friend! I hope your 22nd was delicious.

Happy birthdays to Anna and DJ!

Continuing the tradition started by Liz's birthday, I did picture-definitions for your joint birthday post.

But. . . I put them in a slideshow!

Still riding the struggle bus in my attempt to get everything transferred from my old blog. Content missing here. #sadface

This is the first time I've used Picasa to make a picture slideshow. I hope it works for you all!

LOVE you both! Can't believe how old we all are!

Another birthday

Liz, you are twenty-one, alright,
but I fear my birthday poems are sounding quite trite,
because after this onethis one, and this one, my heavens,
and a fourth, and a fifth, and a sixth, and a seventh,
they’re all starting to sound the same.

So I have decided to go a new route:
one that is less poetry and more vocab.
This new route is called,

I know, right!? Even the Facebook ad people were celebrating your birthday.

Birthdays everywhere!

Marie-Claire DeJarnett, you are twenty-one! This here is your birthday poem; it's only just begun! I hope your special day was nothing short of great and that this poem makes you think, "Man, I miss Kate."

Look, there we are, just a couple of weeks ago! (We make pretty convincing Asians, if I do say so.) You are big time cheesing for this photograph, and you never fail to make me laugh!

I wish I could speak French like you; vraiment vraiment je fais. That would have rhymed if it had been English. (I think, but I might be wrongish.)

I'm glad that you stayed around Lex this summer and that I've gotten to see you some. I can't wait to be back with you at school because living in the apartments is going to be oh-so-cool.

Remember when we were wee little freshmen not so long ago? Back then I thought college would feel really slow. Unfortunately, it has gone much much too fast. We haven't had enough homework hangouts, Target trips, and nights in the caf!

Screen+shot+2010-07-22+at+9.52.17+PM.png

So next year we must vow to have lots of fun together! Because I need Marie in my life like I need sunny weather! I'm glad that you were born 21 years ago today. You make the world a prettier, Frenchier, curlier place!

p.s. I re-read this later and realized that some of it doesn't rhyme at all! Some and summer!? C'mon, Kate! I am going to leave it in its original state, though.
