Reasons Why I Love That Guy

Staci: Hey.

Kenn: Hey. I just found out a great way to relieve stress.

Staci: What?

Kenn: I raise my hands up over my head, and then I wave them about as though I simply do not concern myself with such matters.



I have something new!

It's best to tell this in a short series of photos (ok, 2 photos).


Forgive the crazy look in my eyes. Fake smile hazard.





I have a job interview tomorrow at a university library. I'm totally qualified, and I REALLY need it. So, thoughts and prayers tomorrow. 3:30.


Dear Katie,

You were so right about Sufjan Stevens. Man. I'm currently wearing out Casimir Pulaski Day, which means that I'm tearing up everytime he sings "Oh the morning when you finally go" and then DEAD by the time the last part comes around.

Oh the glory that the Lord has made
And the complications when I see His face
In the morning in the window

Oh the glory when He took our place
But He took my shoulders and He shook my face
And He takes and He takes and He takes

So yes, Sufjan Stevens. Highly recommended. Not all of his songs make you want to cry.


Meet Harvey...

So I assume that most of you don't know that I have acquired a guitar. Yes, the day we all have looked forward to or possibly feared is here. I shall learn to play and accompany myself whilst singing. Note that this is not actually MY guitar, though mine is black and tough. This is why I named him Harvey Wallbanger (the author wishes to thank Heather for the suggestion of Harvey).

However, as of now, I have no idea how to play or what strings are what. So, if anyone I know lives near me and wishes to help me learn, I will be most appreciative. Not appreciative in the sense of I can pay you (YET), but appreciative nonetheless. Seriously, I would really love it if someone could teach me how to play.


So Cool

I want one of these...

So friggin' cool. Go here to browse.


The Egg Hunt Slideshow

Ok, my readers, I found a slideshow that would work on Blogger (crosses fingers). Here we go.

I'll probably only leave this up for a few days, a week at the most, since it makes the loading time more significant. So enjoy while you can!

And I'm Back in the Game...

Here are a couple of pictures from Easter Sunday morning, where Heather, Angela, and I are looking [cue Teen Girl Squad Voice] so good!

I have a bunch of pictures from the Easter Egg Hunt from Saturday, but...well it's a lot of pictures. I'm going to try to get a slide show up on Myspace. We'll see how that goes.


Things I Want To Say To The People Sitting Two Tables Down

To Go Cup

* You're too loud. I don't need to know about your frat parties, how drunk you're going to get, your friend's golf tournament, your roommate Honor, or your friend on scholarship and how he's going through some trouble with inconsiderate roommates. It's college drama. Deal. And learn to deal QUIETLY. I don't need to hear everything you say.

*Also, I don't need to hear everything you eat. If I can hear you chew from 2 or 3 tables down, perhaps you should take a table etiquette and manners class. You know, just perhaps. In general, one closes the mouth whilst masticating, and one does not talk with his or her mouth full. I'm just saying.

Two in as many days?

Yes, it's true. It's another blog from me. This one is also mostly pictures, but take what you can get, you know? These are from Laura Beth and Joe's wedding on April 9th. Before you see the photos, though, do know that they got engaged, planned and pulled off a wedding in 3 weeks. Three. And no, it wasn't a shotgun wedding. His father is in the armed forces and is being sent overseas for a good while, so they went ahead and got married so his father could be there. So yes, this is the absolutely gorgeous three week wedding, in pictorial form.

I also got to see some old college friends, most importantly my senior year girls. It was really good to see everybody, even though we didn't really get to chat and catch up a lot.

And there's one of me and the bride for good measure. I think we look cute. Anyway, the Burfitt is no longer the Burfitt. She is now the Cuyar. Yay!


At least it hasn't been a month...

Again, sorry about that lack of updating. But! I have recently have some event filled weekends, and, as such, some pictures and blogs for you to enjoy! First up is my trip to Charleston for Heather's birthday. I went down with her from Thursday to Saturday, which wasn't long enough, but you make do with what you have. Friday was Ms. Hizzle's birthday, so we got up and ready and, after a quick stop at the Target, we were off to the beach.

I cannot begin to describe how good it felt to be on the beach. I hadn't been in a long time, and though the water was a little cold for swimming, we got to stand in it, jumping waves and kicking up water and generally having WAY too much fun (if there is such a thing). Perfect weather too, with a lovely little breeze. We almost fell asleep there, but there was more fun to be had (shopping, Jack's Cosmic Dogs, Ms. Pac-Man, and cute Citadel boys doing their parade for Heather's birthday). Sadly, I do not have pictures of those, but I will leave you with this really cute picture of the birthday girl.

Actually, I won't because Blogger won't upload it for me. Anyway, it was lovely and fun, and we basically looked so good, and you're totally jealous you weren't there. Or something.


Music Meme

I haven't updated in awhile. I need to start updating more. I'm hoping that this music survey thing will motivate me.

I borrowed this from Newspaper Hack. Thanks and such. I also added a couple questions because I wanted it to come out to 25 questions.

1. A favorite political track “My Enemies are Men Like Me” – Derek Webb

2. One of those tracks that will make you dance on the dancefloor no matter what “Canned Heat” by Jamiroquai, OR “Crazy in Love” – Beyonce. Yeah, I stole the 2nd half of my answer from Newspaper Hack. Seriously, I probably could be at a funeral, and if those intro horns started, I’d shimmy in my seat. I can’t control it. I HAVE to dance.

3. The song you’d use to tell someone you love them “In My Life” – The Beatles

4. A song you know would sell lots of VWs (or iPods) if they paid for it (one that hasn’t already been used) “12:51” – The Strokes Actually I have no idea. But I do know that if they used that song, I probably would buy it so.

5. A song that forced you to sit down and analyze its lyrics “Nightswimming” - REM

6. A song you like that a 2 year old would like too “Can’t Get Next to You” – The Temptations

7. A song that makes you drive too fast “Pain” – Four Star Mary

8. A song that makes you feel like kicking someone’s butt “Fighter” – Christina Aguilera Maybe not so much beating someone up, but this song does get me through the worst part of my workout every time, so.

9. A song that both you and your grandparents like “Beyond the Sea” – Bobby Darin

10. The song you’d send to someone you hated “Nothin’ On Me” – Shawn Colvin

11. A sad instrumental song that would be in the soundtrack to a movie about your life “Close Your Eyes” – Christophe Beck (Buffy the Vampire Slayer)

12. The peppy song that would start the opening credits in the soundtrack to a movie about your life “Bohemian Like You” – The Dandy Warhols

13. An acapella song “That Lonesome Road” – James Taylor

14. A good song from a genre of music that no one could guess that you liked “Early One Morning” – Nana Mouskouri Yeah, English folk music from 1700s

15. A song you think should have been playing when you were born “Hard to Handle” – Black Crowes OR “Trouble” by Pink

16. A favorite artist duo collaboration “Portland, Oregon” – Loretta Lynn and Jack White

17. A favorite song you completely disagree with (politically, morally, commonsensically, religiously, etc) “Regulate” – Warren G and Nate Dogg

18. The song that you love despite the fact that your IQ level drops several points every time you listen to it “Toxic” – Britney Spears

19. Your smooth song, for relaxing “Paint the Silence” – South

20. A song that you like but would play loud to annoy the neighbors “Transylvanian Concubine” – Rasputina

21. A favorite song that’s about a sport or sports N/A

22. A favorite track from an outfit considered a “super-group” “Take It Easy” – The Eagles; “I Saw Her Standing There” – The Beatles I wasn’t exactly sure what was meant by “super group” as that can generally have two meanings. I just went with “really, really famous and influential.”

23. the song that makes you want to drink more beer “Honey Don’t” – Steve Earle and other guy, OR “To Be Young” – Ryan Adams

24. one of the songs you want played at your funeral “In Christ Alone"

25. favorite Dylan track “Don’t Think Twice, It’s Alright”

So what do you think? Like some of these songs? Hate some of these songs? Both? Hit me up with the comments.

So for those of you who took bets, I should officially announce it. I gave notice at the airport restaurant Wednesday. Yeah, that's a week. Yeah, I'm awesome. There were a bunch of reasons why I didn't stay, but the most important is that I HATE IT. With the fire of 1000 suns even. So I'm still looking for a part time job, but I managed to earn March's car payment while I was at the place not to be named from here on.

Oh, and those of you who lost? Pay up. Be cool.


Just. Shut. Up

For the love of all that is good and pure, will someone just WAKE HIM UP? September is over, has been over for months. He missed Thanksgiving, Christmas, Boxing Day, New Years, MLK Day, and is about to miss Valentines. But most of all, wake him up so I can STOP hearing his voice on my stupid radio.

Shut up, Green Day.

*In other news, I'm taking 3 classes and just got a job as a waitress at the airport restaurant. Yeah. I'm that rad.
