It ain’t a crime…

Imageto be ahead of your time!

I relate to Emma Stone’s character “Skeeter” a lot:  We both are writers, we both interview women, we both are unmarried, we both have bad hair days, we both care about certain social causes (and sometimes worry about what our female counterparts are doing!), we’ve both witnessed boys do and say dumb things, but most of all, we both are awesome!

KATH DON’T CARE what Simon Says…

Truths to Consider:

1)  WE ARE ALL ARTISTS! (here’s Prezident Uchtdorf’s take on this…)

2)  We ain’t all gonna make it big (and that’s okay, ya’ll!)

3)  Stem of Jesse (Jessica!) in the scriptures

4)  What insight “The Merchant of Venice” taught me about the HBO filth series “Girls”

5)  My take on “The Great Gatsby” in 3 sentences.

6)  Haven’t yet written about Mark Twain’s  ever famous and influential piece (Huck Finn).  Stay.  Tuned.

7)  What Amanda Bynes (indirectly) taught me about Mormon temples.

8)  “American Idol” certainly has produced some talent, but overall is waaaaay over-rated.

9)  Hozaboutcha take an exodus from this blog and go read about what Moses says about idols? (here!)

10)  Katherine loves wordplay.  And admit it, she’s pretty darn awesome at it, huh? 🙂

The answer, my friend…

Image

 is blowing in the wind!

~Bob Dylan

Dear friends,

Although I love Bobby (he was named after the British poet Dylan Thomas!), I proclaim that the answers to life’s questions are in actuality NOT blowing in the wind; they instead come from righteous men and women who are inspired of God!  I invite you to watch the next session or two of LDS General Conference.  Click here para más información.

Hope you take me up on that offer.  But if not, I guess we can still be friends…

Image

And although I ADORE Kacey Musgraves,

I ain’t just blowin’ smoke…

(figuratively or literally…)

I’m tell you the answer(s), my friend(s)

James Joyce and Jason Mraz went to Mormon Primary?!

Nopers.  But they do relate.   Let Ms. Wilkinson explain:

STREAM.  OF.  CONSCIOUSNESS.

what's phrase?

this video might clear things up a lil’

still don't get it!

In layman’s terms, stream of consciousness refers to a thought process of flowing psychological associations and often incorporates different senses and stimuli other than simply verbal, such as colors (yellow, anyone?).

love this pic!

Stream of consciousness has been described as a loose interior monologue of the writer or narrator’s thoughts.

  thought bubble!

Cool!brain!!!

The Modernist writer James Joyce is a well-known name associated with it.  Singer-songwriter Jason Mraz is also a champion of this literary technique and even makes specific mention of it in his oh so awesome song “Wordplay” :

Jason Mraz is a HUGE influence on me, btw.

Image

And James Joyce?  Meh…

ImageOh, and Jimmy not meaning to be rude, but lemme show you someone who can REALLY play that 6 stringed instrument that you hold with such seeming lack of confidence:

crossfire guitar!

(I was wearing a flesh colored shirt under that dress by the way.)

Not really.

Hope my readers enjoyed that brief thrill of my smooth and silky shoulders.

Glad I could spice up your day a little bit.

Thunderbolt of blasphemy.

(time to impress everyone with your mad bookending skillz)

Anyways, girl didn’tcha learn to dress more modestly when you were just a wee lass?

primary

Like in Primary?

Dear Readers:

Let me again express that I never intend to be judgmental or unkind to anyone, not even concerning such individuals as Charlie Sheen (Although truthfully it’s hard NOT to judge such a troubled man).  I wish to emphasize that all of us are children of God.  ALL OF US.  But I just can’t help but think of how badly Mr. Sheen needs Christ.  I mean, we all do, but for some people, it is more obvious and drastically evident, know what I’m sayin’?

“No other success can compensate for failure in the home.”

I think it’s time for you,

Imageto get off the computer for a little bit!  Go for a walk, go do a load of laundry, go volunteer at a nursing home, go call your sister, go read your scriptures, go plan your week.  And the list goes on, and on.

Seriously folks, we are TOO ONLINE these days!  I very much appreciate that you read my blog, but the OUTERnet can be even better than the INTERnet.

Lyrics here

I love this song of Mr. Paisley‘s.

It is a PERFECT satire of this social problem

(although there is the teensiest bit of mild lyrical innuendo)

Screen shot 2013-09-16 at 9.28.17 AM

And Elder David A Bednar of the LDS Church warns of this ubiquitous problem

of assuming fake identities on the internet.

CLICK HERE for that talk (and my sweet thoughts on it) that is insanely awesome

Screen shot 2013-09-16 at 9.35.20 AM

But back to Ms. Wilkinson’s main point (bookending!)

Screen shot 2013-09-16 at 9.32.46 AM

I love you all (platonically and literally),

but right now I think it would be oh! so wise

to go attend to the matters of real life, know what I mean?

So now skedaddle!  GO DO SOMETHING!

But I’ll see ya back here eventually, right?

WWJD?

I don’t know it all (many people assume I do), but there is one thing I DO know very strongly.  And for the safety of your own self-esteem and confidence, you do NOT want to talk with me about.

Dear readerz,

Look at my title (if you haven’t already).

Figure it out (if you haven’t already).

And now someone alert the media because I’ve just been hit with a thunderbolt of  blasphemy for comparing those 2 men.

🙂

And you’re gonna hear me ROAR!

I really, REALLY like this song a lot…

I once read an interpretation of “The Yellow Wallpaper” where the narrator was compared to a lion…

Not even gonna go there…

BOOKENDING Ahead:

OH, and FYI, it’s okay if you don’t love/listen to/like his music.  One of my best friends does not…

BUT THE MAN HAS MAD SKILLZ!
